The Law of Polarity: Manifest What You Want with the Help of This Universal Law

Have you ever found yourself thinking that the universe is against you? That’s because it might be. The Law of Polarity, also known as the Principle of Opposition, states that everything has an opposite — a polar opposite. In other words, every positive quality in the world will have its negative counterpart. If your goal is to manifest something in your life — whether it’s a career opportunity or a relationship — you’ll need to work this law into your manifestation strategy.

The Law of Polarity states that for every positive quality or trait there will be a negative one. Every time a person is faced with a decision, their mind will automatically make up an answer as to what the negative outcome would be.

In other words, the mind makes up the experience as an imaginary image about what could go wrong and gives it as much attention as it does to what could go right.

“I’m going to ask her out but what if she says no?”

“What if I fail this exam?”

Both of these thoughts have a negative polarity. If you’re trying to manifest something in your life, then daydreaming about how it would go wrong isn’t going to help things go right. You need to focus on what you want and not let your mind wander into the realm of negative possibilities.

This is especially important when it comes to relationships, as other people’s thoughts can sway how they act towards us — and thus affect our relationship with them. If two partners are constantly thinking about the worst-case scenario for their relationship, such as cheating, arguing all the time, and breaking up, it’s going to be a lot harder for them to manifest that into their lives. They need to focus on what they want instead of fixating on negative thoughts about how things could go wrong if they don’t take certain actions (such as not spending enough quality time together).

Since negative qualities will pop up when you’re on a roll with your positive goals, it’s important to be able to recognize them and deal with them accordingly. That might mean working harder or digging deeper into yourself to make sure that the energies of these two polarities match up in a way that creates balance — a kind of “yin and yang” of your life.

If you’re trying to manifest something that creates an all-around positive “yin” energy, for example, it’s important not only to think positively but also to avoid negative thoughts. Stay away from people who are pessimistic or complain a lot — those kinds of energies will counteract what you want the universe to give back. And make sure you’re not getting so caught up in your dreams that you forget about the needs of others. That, too, will create a kind of opposition to what you want.

The universe is always listening — sometimes it’s just a matter of how loud we have to speak before our words get through! Try using this law as part of your manifestation strategy and see if the universe cooperates.

If you want something, you have to visualize it. Imagine what life is going to be like if the object of desire comes to fruition.

The Law of Polarity can be used as a form of self-defense against negative thoughts and images that come up when we’re trying to manifest something in our lives. It’s a way of harnessing the power of opposites — the same power that manifests these negative thoughts and images — to create balance, which helps us manifest positive things into our lives. You can see The Law of Polarity at work for yourself by noticing how often these opposite qualities appear in your day-to-day life.

With practice, you’ll get better at recognizing The Law of Polarity in action, which can help you manage your thoughts better. It’s easier said than done, though! We all have our off days where we’re not in the best mood and our thoughts don’t necessarily reflect what we want in life. That’s why it can be helpful to keep a daily journal where you write your feelings and emotions down every day. This is also the time when manifestation techniques such as these come into play.

You can use The Law of Polarity to visualize what you want, then try to manifest it by focusing your thoughts on what will make you happy. This can be a great way of re-directing your thoughts if they’re going in a pessimistic direction.

This might sound difficult at first, but imagine how much easier it would be for you to keep The Law of Polarity in mind if you’re already aware of its effects. It’s like an affirmation that can help you keep your thoughts in check — and your relationship with the universe positive (or at least hopefully less negative!).

The Law of Polarity can be applied to any goal or thing we want. The key is finding out how it relates to what you desire and it’s the corresponding opposite. So, for example, if you want to create a successful business, doing so might require your to take on more risk than you normally would. That’s where the law of polarity comes in — you have to be willing to take risks (the negative aspect) for your positive goal (a successful business) to become manifest into your reality. This might mean quitting your day job, not paying the bills, or going into massive debt to do what you love.

Of course, risk can also be a double-edged sword, so it’s important to consider the consequences of what you’re trying to manifest before working with The Law of Polarity.

But if you feel the potential negative outcome of taking a risk is outweighed by the positive outcome you will receive if you follow your heart and take action, then it might be worth it to jump in with both feet.

Finding what’s right for you may require some trial and error as well as patience and hard work. You should consider which path (risk or no risk) better serves your long-term goals and tackle what needs to be done accordingly.

In the case of manifesting a healthy relationship into your life, you might have to take a chance and put yourself out there by going on that first date or asking them out. The Law of Polarity is not only about balance but also taking action so that the positive outcome you desire to experience in your life does become a reality. It requires both sides of The Law of Polarity to work together because the only way positive things can manifest into our lives is if we’re taking action and willing to do what it takes to make that happen.

It’s up to us how we apply this law. We can take a risk and be proactive in manifesting what we want, or we can take a more passive role and not do anything at all. Eventually, though, the universe will find a way to bring us whatever it is we need — either by directly providing it to us or giving us the tools needed so that we can go out and get it for ourselves.

So if you want to manifest your dream job, make sure you go after it even though it might take a lot of effort. You have to be willing to dedicate yourself fully in the hopes that whatever the universe has planned for you will come through and become a reality. Ultimately, what we create in our own lives is up to us — and how we apply The Law of Polarity can help guide us in making decisions when trying to find success or happiness.
