Likes Attract Likes
‘Like attract likes’ is a
phrase we have heard many times, and it is certainly worth
revisiting because it is a basic energy principle that we all seem
Who you are in each moment shapes what you
attract. If you are grumpy, you will attract others who are grumpy.
If you are bitter, you will attract those who are bitter. If you are
positive and upbeat, you will attract people who are the same.
I personally put a lot of emphasis on transforming what limits
our health, our happiness, and our financial success. Once we
address these through introspection, healing work done with the
inside of ourselves, journaling and more - it is time to consciously
hold onto what it is that we want to become and what we want to
attract for our relationships.
Why does it matter what we
consciously hold onto? The more positive we become, the more
positive energy we give off, which draws in more positive
connections to us. The same holds true for negativity, and every
other emotion and human condition.
If we want peace in our
lives, for example, we must first become peace. The secret to
obtaining that which we want in our life, is to become it first
So let's say you want to attract a
significant other. The idea is to embody that which you desire or
want to attract. Because a relationship is more abstract than a
single emotion, the first step is to define what it is that you want
to attract in relationships. Once defined, you can strengthen these
traits in yourself - enabling you to attract the same to you! For
instance, if you want love but you do not love yourself, becoming
loving with yourself is a good place to start.
Another way to
look at it is to identify the best parts of you and focus on
operating from them. Each of us have unique and wonderful traits and
aspects of ourselves. It is always best to be yourself, because you
want to attract people who like you just as you are. However, this
is strengthened by reflecting on the best aspects of yourself and
then pulling your natural positive traits to the forefront of your
consciousness. This makes it easier to naturally express them when
you are with others.
In fact, before you enter a social
situation, try concentrating on the ‘best’ aspects of yourself so
they stand out even further! Remember what you focus on is what you
get. When you focus on your best traits you are focused on
attracting quality not quantity - and the quality is tailored
specifically for you. This means you will attract others who have
I want to be clear that I do not mean
aspects like ‘good at tennis’, but qualities like being dependable,
kind, patient, or easy going.
Everyone wants to be with
someone who they are comfortable with - someone who makes them feel
good. When you are with others, especially those who are important
to you, focus on sending them the warmth of your heart. It is a
powerful tool. Start by thinking about, feeling, or envisioning
something you love. As you feel the emotions connected to love,
others around you will feel it too. So send this to your boss, your
family members, or anyone that you’d like to soften the rough edges
of your relationship with.
Above all, love yourself always.
If you truly love yourself, you will attract others who love you as
I hope this perspective is helpful to you. It is easy
to fall into victim mode: "Why me? Men or women never show up
embracing who I am?” Now you know that this is not so when you
embody and become what you want in your life first. This is a great
tool to create positive change in your relationships and to attract
new ones to you.
It is okay to learn as you go and adjust as
your discover what works best for you. This is a wonderful journey
and let's start it by intending: "It is easy and fun to attract
people who are a good fit for me. I am worthy and deserving of
