The Law of Attraction is always in effect. The key is to begin working with it in a way that brings you more of what you want and less of what you dont want. The key to doing this is getting control of your thoughts and removing limting beliefs. These two factors influence your vibration and emotions, which are the what ultimately control what the law of attraction brings you. Your beliefs dictate your thoughts, which create your emotional patterns. If you try to change your thoughts without addressing your beliefs, the change will only be temporary and when you remove your mental vigilance, your thoughts will revert back to your original patterns based on your beliefs. Therefore in order to make lasting changes in your thought patterns, you must fundamentally alter your beliefs. This will in turn keep your thoughts in alignment with whatever you have chosen to believe, which for manifestation and spiritual purposes, should be something expansive, unlimited and abundance affirming. When you make these changes, then you simply need direct your thoughts towards the general things you wish to attract or create in your life and the universe will do the rest, bringing you a more perfect realization of them than you ever could have imagined yourself.
