Law of Attraction and Mental Health

The law of attraction is important when recovering from any mental illness. In its simplest terms, the law of attraction states that we attract things to ourselves based on our thoughts.

For example, if we are thinking ‘I don’t want to be depressed’, the universe will since we are thinking about depression that that means we want MORE depression. Instead, we need to think about how we want to feel, if we think ‘I want to be happy,’ then we will attract happiness to ourselves.

Even if you do not put any stock into the concept of the law of attraction, changing the way you look at things to look for what you do want still works. Even when we do not realize it, we often create ‘self-fulfilling prophecies.’ This means we convince ourselves that ‘something’ is going to happen or we are going to feel a certain way. We then start to subconsciously act in ways that bring about what we have convinced ourselves would happen. This in turn serves to prove to ourselves that we were right all along.

The best thing then is to try to be mindful of our thoughts and when we realize we are thinking negatively, make ourselves think in a positive way. We will then bring about more positive thing in our lives.
