Law Of Attraction (LOA), the eternal, invisible force that turns our thoughts into reality is no longer a secret. A growing number of people these days are bringing positive changes into their lives by paying attention to LOA because once its principles are fully understood, it is impossible to go back to a fatalistic mindset which believes that bad things happen to us because we’re ill-fated or unlucky.
Our lives reflect what we choose to think about and focus on, because thoughts are a powerful energy that shapes our reality. Think sad, hopeless thoughts, and LOA will give us a life that matches up to those disempowering energies. Think positive, joyful thoughts with complete confidence that they will come true, and LOA sends us life experiences that perfectly match up to those ideas too.
However, it isn’t easy to change our chronic, fear-based mindsets overnight, and it takes constant practice to notice when negativity is creeping into our hearts, before we can deliberately shift away from them. Most practitioners of LOA wish they had learnt how to do this earlier on in life, because then it would have become second nature and we wouldn’t have to struggle so much with the default mindset of focusing mostly on negative outcomes.
While it is too late for adults to go back in time and reset negative thinking patterns from the very start, there is still hope yet, because our children are in the perfect developmental phase to learn and live by the principles of LOA before chronic negative thinking becomes their default mind state as well.
You may say that LOA is too complicated for kids below the age of 7 to understand, but you know what? They don’t have to. By merely setting up certain positive thinking habits, these children will automatically live a life of abundance without understanding what Law Of Attraction even means!
What’s more, children below the age of 7 are still in that brain development phase when they’re imprinting information into their subconscious minds that will become the baseline of who they are and what they will become as they grow up.
Here are some deliberate thinking habits that you can easily inculcate into your children and grandchildren by giving them the right thinking tools:
LOA Habit # 1: Feel The Joy Of A Thankful Heart
Young children may not be able to grasp what `gratefulness’ means, but `thankfulness’ is a much easier concept for them to understand. Encourage them to be thankful/grateful for small things that bring joy and pleasure, and not hold out for expensive gifts and big experiences in order to feel good.

LOA Habit # 2: Set Your Own Goals – No Pressure!
Thanks to the pressure of societal expectations, kids borrow goals from what parents, teachers and peers expect them to be. They surrender their power to set their own goals and dreams, which are way more powerful and authentic because they are born within their own hearts.
Encourage your children to dream and ideate with complete freedom from expectations and judgement. Support their interests by giving them toys, books and other material that feed their passions instead of trying to direct and change them according to what you want them to be.
LOA Habit # 3: Change Is Wonderful – Enjoy It!
Like adults, children too are not always comfortable with change. Especially difficult ones, that force them to look outside their comfort zones.
Explain the positive aspects of every small change that is scaring your child from an early age. Write down a list of good outcomes that can happen from change, and help train their minds to always find the glass half full.
LOA Habit # 4: Giving Is More Fun Than Receiving
Expose your children more often to the joys of giving. Celebrate each act of giving by revisiting the joy they just brought into another person or animal’s heart — until they are hooked on the selfless pleasure that comes from sacrificing something to help somebody else feel good.
LOA Habit # 5: There Is No Shortage
Self-preservation instincts prompt our brain to always expect and look for shortage. Don’t allow that idea to take root in your child’s mind by pointing him or her in the direction of abundance. When they get practiced in thinking that nothing is in short supply, their actions and motivations will be less influenced by FOMO (Fear Of Losing Out), and they will always make decisions from a confident, powerful place.
LOA Habit # 6: The Fantasy World Is A Beautiful Place
Encourage your children to develop their imagining skills. Let them visualize dream worlds and discover their own, secret happy places. Do not rush to tell them these worlds are only make-believe and not grounded in reality. The power of visualization is what imbues our thoughts with emotions that raise our vibration to reflect that of the things and events we want to manifest. The more powerfully they can visualize, the better masters they will be of the Law Of Attraction in later life.
LOA Habit # 7: Love Isn’t A Two-Way Street
Conditional love manifests in our hearts because we always want the emotion to be reciprocated in exactly the same way by the other person. And when life events prove otherwise, our hearts and spirits are broken because we didn’t receive as much as we gave.
If children can learn to look at love as an emotion that brings them joy, and let that be the end goal in itself, then that love becomes unconditional. And powerful, because it is complete in itself.
LOA Habit # 8: As Long As You Are Happy!
Children who accept happiness without guilt, learn to live authentic, heart-brain connected lives in the future. Tending to your own happiness is not a selfish act, because unless you are happy within yourself, you have no material to uplift and share with others.
