Bucket List and the Law of Attraction

We have all heard of the law of attraction.  It is the name given to the belief that “like attracts like” and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.  

The Law of Attraction has been speculated throughout history with skeptics . The Law of Attraction has been popularized in recent years by books and films such as The Secret.  It’s not a new idea, by any means. It’s really just common sense that if you think happy and surround yourself with positive experiences,  your overall outlook will be more influential.  Think negatively and you will possess energies that are bad and unlucky.

Your mental intentions and attitudes draw people and things of like intention and attitude towards you.

I was never a believer in the Laws of Attraction. Possibly because I always had bad luck with endless setbacks in my first 30 years.  A cloud of negativity hovering over my head holding me back from achieving my dreams.

The Bucket List, derived from kick the bucket (to die) + list; hence “list of things to do before you die” is an iconic form of how desires manifest into reality.

So in a drunken stupor, on my 30th Birthday,  I created my Bucket List. Keep in mind this was just for fun.  I was unaware of the Laws of Attraction when I wrote my Bucket List. It was just something fun to do for my 30th. Naturally the list was filled with silly things such as “learn to pee standing up” and “make a corny u-tube video”. I also had serious goals like “go back to school”, “Publish Something”. “Shave my head” and “get all my privates pierced” also somehow ended up on the list.

Of course time passed and I found my list. 1 year later I had completed 7 things on the list. I was shocked. Subconsciously without constant awareness I had started checking off my bucket list.

So had Law of Attraction really worked?

Did Creating my Bucket List help me attract goals I had? Eager to do more with the concept of bucket lists and the laws of attraction, so I asked some friends to create a bucket list in hopes that the Laws of Attraction would work for them.

I give all my positive thoughts to this Bucket List below. In hopes that the Law of Attraction will work for them as it did for me.

Creating a  mental image of what you want helps to visualize the end result of your dreams. The Law of Attraction uses the power of your mind positively. By imagining your goals and desires and radiating the energy that we want.  Like a magnet, the things you desire will come to you.

The practice of Law of Attraction has been used for hundreds of years and philosophers in a variety of scientific fields have explored the properties of the Law of Attraction. There seems to still be a large number of skeptics due to lack of scientific evidence in the research.  Skeptical Inquirer magazine criticized the lack of falsifiability and testability of these claims.

Bucket Lists from my personal experience have been a modern way of practicing the theory of Laws of Attraction. So the study begins. The Bucket List started for me as fun, then as my thoughts transpired it became a future desire.

So my study has begun by posting Bucket List’s for people I come in contact with that has heard of the Law of Attraction.

“If you create a Bucket List and tuck it away will it still manifest into our desires?”

So tonight, Rebecca stinsomniacwomanopped by to say ” hello” and was forced to make a Bucket List

Think only positive thoughts and your desires will manifest.

As I keep building on how powerful the Law of Attraction is in the universe, think of it this way..

When you use the power of creative visualization and affirmations you can make what you write on your Bucket List become reality.  Visualizing a mental image of what you want to achieve and by repeating positive statements which are called affirmations, you create and bring into your life what you visualize in your mind.  I will post more of my friends Bucket Lists in hopes to manifest what they wrote into a reality.
