Interview by Blanca Reyes 

Liz Dimitria is a designer and artist based in Spain with a successful online shop, Lil Uglies, that is getting the attention from people in the fashion and music industry. Dimitria is a firm believer in Law of Attraction - the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. 

Q: When was the first time you heard of the Law of Attraction or Manifestation?

Liz: The first time I heard about it, I was 13 years old. My mother urged me to watch “The Secret” with her and I remember being so fascinated by the concept of the Law of Attraction then, and ever since. It’s like everything around me, all the existential questions I’ve ever had finally made sense. I definitely believed in the Law of Attraction before it was introduced to me but I don’t think I fully understood it or truly applied it to the way I live my life until quite recently.

Q: What research did you do to better understand what Law of Attraction is?

Liz: I think a lot of it was personal experience. I realised that certain things worked for me and others did nothing and I worked around it until it made sense to me. The Law of Attraction, in short, is the belief that everything is made out of energy and that similar energies gravitate towards one another. That’s the core. There are many documentaries and books that further explain this philosophy and sort of act like a “manual” on how it should be used, but my advice would be to take away what works for YOU. Some books I recommend are “The Secret”, “The Magic”, “Who Says You Can’t? You Do”, “The Four Agreements”, and “The Power of Now”.

Q: How do you practice it? What do you do personally?

Liz: Lists. I’ve always been a huge fan of writing things down so that it doesn’t slip my mind to do them. And I’ve adapted that same method to practising Manifestation. The first rule to the Law of Attraction is figuring out what exactly it is that you want. And that can seem overwhelming but once it’s written on paper, not only does it seem more real, but it makes it seem more doable. Tangible. Make a list of ALL the things you want and make it as detailed as possible. Think of it as if you were creating a movie where you get to decide the genre, the plot, the cast, etc. Another thing that’s super important is to be grateful. Make a list of all the things you have right now that you appreciate and more things that make you feel great will follow. Another thing I do is live by the phrase “Fake it ‘til you make it.” I live my life as if everything I’ve ever wanted is already mine. I dress for the job I’ve always wanted and I act the way I imagine my best self to act.

Q: In what ways has practising Law of Attraction helped you?

Liz: It has helped me realise that I am in control of my life no matter what the circumstances are. I am not the victim, which previous to that epiphany, I felt like that was my role in life. Now I know that I play the role I give myself, not the one that was dealt to me. As cheesy as it sounds, it really did set me free.

Q: Has it worked for you? What has happened in your life that you credit as a direct effect of Law of Attraction?

Liz: Everything that has happened in my life has been the works of the Law of Attraction - good and bad. It just took me a while to understand that and learn how to take the reins to create more good. It’s important to realise that bad days are inevitable and feelings of sadness are absolutely okay and necessary. Bad things happen sometimes, as we are only human. By taking the reins, I mean to try and see those things as lessons rather than punishments and learn from those experiences to become better. To not let them define you or discourage you from living your best life.

Q: Do you have any advice for those want to practice it but don’t know where or how to start?

Liz: I think a huge myth about the Law of Attraction is that you just wish up whatever you want and it will appear on your lap because “you want it really bad” and the truth is, none of that matters. Nothing will manifest without putting in work. Wanting it badly certainly helps paint a clearer picture and it is a huge part of the process, but the Law of Attraction works by presenting you with the right opportunities, people and circumstances. Use those tools to make a staircase to your dreams. Now that we have that down, obviously do your research and read your books. Educate yourself before anything else.

Q: You have a shop and are an artist. Is there anything else you are wanting to speak out into existence?

Liz: Firstly that I am overwhelmed with gratefulness that I get the chance to even be doing this in the first place. I can’t believe I get to make a business out of something I love so much. In the future I’m excited to see some of my favourite people wear things I put so much of my heart into creating, and maybe I'll even be collaborating with other brands that I’ve always adored.

Q: Is there anything else you do, along with Law of Attraction, that you think people should look into and possibly try? 

Liz: Practice self-love and self-care. Teach yourself to accept the love you deserve and make sure that you set that bar very high. If you don’t believe you deserve the best, you will never get it. That means giving yourself a break, sometimes a push. Getting rid of anyone and anything that makes you feel hard to love. Surround yourself with what makes you happy. Be kind. Karma is the short word for Law of Attraction.
