Law of Attraction: The Importance of Feeling GoodBy Dr. Margaret Paul
October 04, 2010
Do you wonder why the Law of Attraction doesn't seem to be working for you?
--Joe Vitale, Author and Speaker
The "Law of Attraction" states that like attracts like. Most Law of Attraction gurus state that there are four steps to manifestation:
- Write down what you want
- Repetitively visualize what you want as if it is already true, with much positive emotion. Do this many times daily for at least a year.
- Take actions toward your goal.
- Keep your frequency high by feeling good
It is this latter step that I want to address in this article, as it is often the one that people have the most difficulty with.
Feeling good means that we need to attend to both our thoughts and our physical bodies. Our ability to have positive emotions and take positive actions come directly from our thoughts, and our thoughts are often deeply affected by what is going on in our physical body.
Our ego wounded self is deeply addicted to negative thinking, and to repeatedly thinking the many false beliefs that were programmed into us when we were growing up. Thoughts about ourselves, such as "I'm not good enough," "I don't deserve to be loved," "Good things don't happen for me, "I can't do it," make us feel anxious and depressed. Negative thoughts about events, people and outcomes can keep us continually stressed and depressed - the opposite of feeling good.
These negative thoughts and beliefs create a heavy, low frequency, which draws to us that which we don't want.
In order to manifest what you want, you need to be thinking about what you want rather than what you don't want. In order to feel good and have a high enough frequency to attract what you want, it is vitally important that you become aware of your self-judgments and judgments of others and consciously move into compassion instead.
What you put into your body and how you treat your body has a direct effect on your brain.
Food itself has either a high or low frequency. The highest frequency foods are fresh organic fruits and vegetables. The low frequency foods are foods that are sugared, packaged, canned, refined, devitalized, fried, or chemical/pesticide-laden. Low frequency foods not only draw energy from the body as the body struggles to digest them, but they cause the brain to lose focus and clarity, making it harder to consciously think positive thoughts.
Drugs and alcohol are also low frequency. While you might feel good for the moment, in the long run these substances backfire, causing numbness, anxiety, and depression rather than good feelings. If you tune into how you feel, you will discover that all low-frequency substances - food, drugs, alcohol - cause you to feel less than good for days after consuming them. Then you want more of the addictive substances to feel good again, creating a vicious circle. And the good feeling is not a true good feeling coming from your spiritual connection, so it is still in a low frequency and will hinder your ability to manifest.
Consistent exercise and enough sleep raise the frequency. It is difficult to feel good and have a high enough frequency to manifest when you are not getting enough sleep or exercise.
Feeling good means taking loving care of yourself on all levels, and this is what leads to your high frequency and ability to manifest.

Today, notice which you focus on more - what brings you joy or what causes fear. Notice that it is often your own thoughts and actions that create either joy or fear. Becoming aware of which you are choosing in any given moment gives you the power to changes your thoughts and actions and take responsibility for your feelings.
