The Law of Attraction explains the way that you actively create your life. Your thoughts and desires are vibrations that emanate from you. In response, the universe begins to answer your request. Like attracts like: as you have thoughts, more related thoughts come to you and bolster your thoughts/desires. The universe conspires to make it so, as you continue to give strength to the original thought. You may not notice this to be true yet in your life, if you haven't heard of the Law of Attraction. Once you understand the Law of Attraction you will be able to look back at the events of your life, and notice how this has been true so far even without your full awareness of it.
