You don’t attract into your life what you want. You don’t attract what you think about. You don’t attract what you feel. Desires, thoughts, and feelings are all important, but these are more effects than causes.
You attract what you’re signaling.
Think of yourself as a vibrational transmitter. You’re constantly sending out signals that tell the universe who you are in this moment. Those signals will either attract or repel other vibrational beings, events, and experiences.
You naturally attract that which is in harmony with your state of being, and you’ll repel that which is out of sync with your state.
If your energetic self radiates wealth and abundance, your physical reality will reflect wealth and abundance for your physical being.
If your energetic self radiates anger and frustration, your physical reality will reflect that as well.
Since the signals you’re sending out at any given moment tend to be fairly complex, your experience of physical reality will be equally complex.
Once you can accept that your vibrational self attracts compatible patterns, it becomes clear that if you want to experience something different in your life, you must somehow change the signals you’re putting out.
