Here is my experience of the Law of Attraction.

First off, when I joined this forum, I loathed this law. To me, it was absolutely one of the biggest insults I could ever find that you attract negative stuff when you have a negative mindset. My reason for this is that I have crippling depression, and to me, this law was a punishment due to my depression, something that I felt was 100% uncontrollable even with an antidepressant. So, naturally, my feeling about this law was that it's nonsense.

In fact, not too long ago, I thought positive affirmations were stupid as well. I could not understand why affirmations are in the present tense. If you don't have something right now, why would you say something as if you do? This left me confused and frustrated so I decided at one point that the Law of Attraction must be a dumb spiritual concept.

That is, until I realized that for me things seemed to go downhill whenever I was in a bad mood yet my good moods seemed to manifest absolute good. For a while, this drove me nuts.

And here's the most important part. The Law of Attraction does not manifest things instantly. Over time, positive affirmations will begin to manifest what you affirm into the present moment. I learned this as fact after I realized that my constant negativity began to manifest what I was saying to myself. I was becoming who I was affirming to myself that I was. However, what may have stopped this was the sudden realization that I was starting to believe my negative affirmations and I was conflicted over what was happening versus how to fix the damage. The result was my emotions shut down from the overwhelming amount of stress on my brain. After a couple days, I developed anhedonia, but it was not until late July of this year that I stopped insulting myself.

Anyway, the Law of Attraction works even if you don't believe it does. That's why when I thought it was complete nonsense, what I was affirming to myself still ended up manifesting.

It still helps if you put in the effort to get what you desire, but sometimes, getting what you want to manifest starts with your mindset and what you believe about your capabilities. Affirmations do work as long as you repeat them over and over and over.

Also, while this is a bit off-topic, I think that based on this post, it may be beneficial information to mention that back in September I reversed the symptoms of my anhedonia and I have healed my negative self-esteem. My state of mind is much more positive and happy than it was before.

I can read tarot cards, but I am still a beginner. It is not possible for me to answer all questions using the tarot.
