like attracts like
and opposites attract
The two are not mutually exclusive. The subject and quality of our focus determines what we attract. A loving person focusing on what they hate (illness, mean people, etc.) is likely to attract just that! Onlookers will say, “How unfair!” Actually, the law is non-discriminating applying to everyone.
A simple shift of focus to what is desired with a grateful, expectant heart will produce miracles!
