Action and Law of Attraction
When you first learn about the Law of Attraction, you know the importance of getting your thoughts, emotions and
beliefs into alignment with what you want to attract. But once you’ve done all that and expressed your desire to
the universe, what then? Do you need to take action to get the ball rolling, or can you simply trust and wait for
the universe to deliver your desire?
You’ll probably find that opinions differ greatly on this topic, depending who you talk to. Many people think
that nothing at all will happen if you don’t take action because action is what helps bring forth your desire into
physical reality. If you just sit still, the universe has no way to deliver the things you want.
Personally, I disagree with that because I’ve had incredible things happen without lifting a finger. So I do
believe it’s possible to see results without it.
However, there are still undeniable benefits to taking action.
First, taking action moves you into a more proactive role, which is empowering. No longer do you feel like
you’re at the mercy of the universe – you can have some control over the things that happen in your life.
Secondly, there is no denying that you can create plenty of opportunities by taking action, so you would be
working in partnership with the universe by doing so. It’s not that the universe couldn’t find a way to deliver
your desire otherwise, but you increase the possibilities by opening "gateways" for opportunities and abundance to
Finally, it's very possible that by taking action you’ll see results more quickly than if you sat and waited
patiently. Again, that’s because you’re increasing the possibilities available to you, and the universe will
usually choose the path of least resistance to deliver what you desire.
If all else fails and you’re really torn about whether to take action or not, ask the universe for an inspired
action that you can take. Say something like this, "I’d like to bring _______ into my life; please lead me to the
opportunities that would help make it happen."
Then watch and wait. If you see an obvious action you can take, go for it. If not, just wait for a nudge in a
However, be sure that any actions you take are fun and enjoyable. If any action would be incredibly difficult or
painful, it’s probably not the right way for you. That doesn’t mean effort won’t be required, but there’s a
definite difference between effort and struggle!
