The term “Law of Attraction” has been thrown around a lot these days, but if you find yourself confused as to what it means and how to use it, you’re not alone. (There’s a reason this is a popular book topic!)
There are a lot of parts to this practice, but here’s a quick and dirty definition of the Law of Attraction: What comes into our lives is exactly what we have attracted—meaning, if we put out good vibes, we receive good vibes back.
Some people materialize this law by using a vision board, meditating, creating mantras, or practicing acts of kindness; sometimes, it’s all of the above.
If you’ve been curious about the Law of Attraction but aren’t sure how to use it or don’t have a firm understanding of it, you might feel lost. Luckily, there are plenty of books that can help give you tools to use the Law of Attraction to your advantage.
Here are some of our favorites to keep handy on your bookshelf or tablet.
