According to urban dictionary, the Law of attraction is:

"The belief that positive thoughts are magnets for positive life experiences and negative thoughts are magnets for negative life experiences."

Your dictionary definition :

"The belief that thinking about something attracts it and causes it to manifest in your life."

Manifest / Manifestation

According to Manifestation is:

“Something theoretical made real; Manifestation's origins are in religion and spirituality because if something spiritual becomes real, it is said to be a manifestation”

In general the term manifest is widely used in Law Of Attraction circles to simple means ‘focusing on what you want to attract it into your life’.


Vibrations are mentioned in lots of Law Of Attraction books, articles and movies because many experts believe that our thoughts and behaviours can positively or negatively affect the vibrations and rhythms in our body.

Whilst there isn’t much scientific evidence to support it, many experts claim that positive feelings of acceptance, joy and peace may be able to alter your body’s vibrations in order to improve physical and mental health and to help you achieve your goals.

Limiting beliefs

We all have a core set of beliefs that influence many of the decisions we make. 

Research suggests that positive, healthy beliefs help you, whilst unhealthy limiting beliefs can severely hold you back from achieving your potential.


The Law Of Attraction is commonly referred to as a ‘Metaphysical’ philosophy.

Definition of Metaphysical from the Collins dictionary:

“Beyond the physical or material; incorporeal, supernatural, or transcendental

metaphysical definition

This is often mentioned when talking about The Law Of Attraction due to the belief that the power of our thoughts affects our outer world in ways that go beyond the physical.

Abundance Blocks

Abundance blocks are a certain type of limiting belief related to money and wealth. 

abundance blocks definition

For example, as children many people learn phrases such as ‘money doesn’t grow on trees’ and come to believe that money is scarce and hard to attain.

This is a good example of an abundance block as it literally blocks your mind from the possibility that money can actually be easy to get hold of and is an abundant resource. 

The Universe

When reading about the Law Of Attraction you will often come across talk about ‘The Universe’.

universe definition

In this context, the Universe can be seen as a combination of internal (subconscious) and external forces and situations that can align in your favour or even attract to you the things that you want in life.


Definition of Meditation from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

“to engage in mental exercise (such as concentration on one's breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness
