Law Of Attraction: Living Deliberately To Attract Positively

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and to see if I could learn not what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” ~ Henry David Thoreau in his book “Walden.”

What had he meant by ‘living deliberately?’ Henry Thoreau loved nature but he also loved an intelligent society. Frustrated by the pettiness and materialism of human society during his time, he looked to nature by living in the woods to study what it meant to be alive, to live each moment to its fullest while trying to understand his place in the world and how he fit in before he could fully understand himself and enjoy his life.

Just like Henry Thoreau, we too should undertake to live deliberately in order to improve our life the way we want it to be. When we decide to live deliberately, we take deliberate actions to look for positive aspects in everything that surrounds us, in everything that we do and in everything that we experience. As we continually focus on all that are positive, we will improve our thoughts and our emotions which will inadvertently increase our positive vibrations. Positive vibration is what the law of attraction will be responding to in order to deliver more of it to us.

According to the law of attraction, we are all powerful magnets that will attract whatever we vibrate. Positive vibrations means attracting more of the positive circumstances while negative vibrations naturally means attracting more of the negative circumstances. Most of us are unaware that the most powerful law of the universe is working in our life all the time and by our ignorance, we unintentionally attract into our life many circumstances that do not meet our expectations. We are living our lives by default.

By becoming aware about the law of attraction, we become conscious of the power that actually lies in our hands to deliberately create the life of our choice. It does not matter that we have been carrying a lot negative thoughts before. We can deliberately choose to focus our thoughts on new improved thoughts while we balance our emotions and vibrations along the way.

Even if we may not accept the concept of the law of attraction, we cannot deny that maintaining a positive attitude is the key to living a more constructive life. With a positive attitude good things tend to happen more frequently, although there are occasions of unwanted situations. That’s life but at least with our deliberate actions, we generally enjoy a happier life.

Bear in mind that no one can decide how we live nor live our life for us. Just as Henry Thoreau did back then in his days, we too have to front our life on our own before we can see how we fit in this world. Whether we believe in the law of attraction or otherwise, it is important to believe that happiness is a matter of choice. So the first step to living deliberately is to rid as much negativity from our life as possible before we can start to see positively, to think positively, to feel positively or even to hear positively. Remember that all the good and bad things that happened in the past are beneficial learning experiences that shall become the stepping stone to reinforcing the positive mental attitude in us.

Hi Wenny,

Deliberate living is a conscious choice, from moment to moment. You choose to see what you want to see, to feel what you want to feel.

If you feel low energy, you can feel high energy in a moment. Thoreau knew a great truth: nature is a powerful vehicle for viewing powerful living, purposeful living, perfect living. Nature is inherently perfect, and observing it literally forces you to bathe in its perfection, and live life deliberately, as we were designed to do.

Thanks for sharing!


Thanks for sharing this Wenny. This is exactly what I needed to be reminded of today! Henry David Thoreau is a great example too. Wonderful read :)

It's my pleasure Katelyn. I am so happy to hear that this post had been of some help for you.

Let's continue to practise deliberate living at every opportunity in order to lead a joyful and purposeful life.
