Attraction is the power to evoke interest, pleasure, or desire. In physics, it refers to the electric or magnetic force between two oppositely charged entities that draw each other together.
The Law of Attraction refers to the belief that our thoughts, feelings, and intentions are made of energy, and that we attract people and circumstances in our lives that are a vibrational match. The quantum field—the field of unlimited potential—is like an ocean of energy in wave form. When we launch a thought, feeling, or intent and it goes into this sea of unmanifested energy, the energy in this field responds by matching it. Then the energy changes from a wave to a particle, and particles are the building blocks of form and matter. These are the “mechanics” of how our thoughts, feelings, and intentions manifest into matter and become real in our lives.
To understand the concept of attraction on a deeper level, we must consider so much more than the mere mechanics of how it works. Attractions have to do with need, desire, fascination, interest, and connection; and the desires of the heart can be very different from the desires of the mind. What and who we are attracted to on a physical level can be very different from what and who we are attracted to on a mental or emotional level. It is wise to pay attention to our attractions, as they can provide insight into the dynamics between our inner world and our outer manifestations. What we are attracted to often symbolizes something we feel we are lacking ourselves or want more of. The opposite can be true too: what we attract toward us often symbolizes what we embody and express out into the world. Both are significant in our understanding of ourselves and our relationship to others and the world.
