Rhonda Byrne published in 2006 the film The Secret wherein she emphasized thinking about what each person wants to obtain, but also to infuse the thought with the maximum possible amount of emotion. She claims the combination of thought and feeling is what attracts the desire.[26] The Secret says your subconscious mind can control everything that happens around you, including both positive experiences, like having someone call you from miles away, and negative experiences, like death. The Byrne underlines the power of the subconscious mind by asking the reader to take full control of these thoughts, in order to achieve things in life, with the mind, as much as with action. Another similar book is James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, which says reality can be manifested by man.[27] Man and the universe have a force of attraction between them similar to a magnetic attraction. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, says readers can achieve seemingly impossible goals by learning how to bring the mind itself under control. The Power by Rhonda Byrne, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle are similar. While personal testimonies claim the secret and the law to have worked for them, a number of skeptics have criticized Rhonda Byrne's film and book. The New York Times Book Review called the secret pseudoscience and an "illusion of knowledge".[28]
MM teaches you to increase energy vibrations and move up your frequencies. Many people, with their negative thoughts, uncertainties, lack of self-belief and confidence prompt lower energy vibrations to have low frequencies of energy. Alexander Wilson notes that 95 percent of all people use low-frequency energies that attracts negative people, things and events into one’s life. Alternatively, the remaining 5 percent have mastered the art of harnessing high-frequency energy that brings positive things, events and people into one’s life.

Her intuitive and practical life experiences make her an outstanding life coach in coaching ones personal insights as well as giving one insight into the opposite sex and how we can better work together for a happier life.
WOW! What a simply fantastic read. I've read dozens of books on motivation, LOA, etc and this one tops them all (even "The Secret"). It first teaches you the science behind Law of Attraction, introduces spirituality into it, and then gives real world practical advice on success. It teaches you to first shift your state of mine from negative to empowering then taking action. I love it because the writers make it easy for the layman to comprehend and connect. It's a fast read and I can tell it's already helping me with various areas of my life. A++
Captain Ahab, said the reddening mate, moving further into the cabin, with a daring so strangely respectful and cautious that it almost seemed not only every way seeking to avoid the slightest outward manifestation of itself, but within also seemed more than half distrustful of itself; A better man than I might well pass over in thee what he would quickly enough resent in a younger man; aye
Or, like most people who claim to have found the way to manifest things through the LOA, is it that you truly don't want big things, new things, nice cars, paid off mansions, kids' schools paid for, permanent paid vacations, etc. If you wanted them, you know you could manifest them, you are just not that interested in those things right now. That's the typical response.

Step 2. Write down your desire. It might help to clarify it beforehand. For example, you may have a strong intention to find a job so write down, “My intention is to be offered the job I seek. The job title is XXXX. My pay grade is $XXX,XX. The location of my job is XXXX. My boss is amenable. My work colleagues are friendly and helpful.” You will write this anew every day, so keep it short.
You claim that "positive thoughts always resulting in positive things" is not the basis of the LOA. In part you are correct. The foundational basis in science, as I alluded to in the article was that thought stuff particles travel through ether (not air) and interact with formless stuff to create whatever it is that you are thinking about. This was how "the law" started.
You may get a set of instructions on ways to make use of the universe powers in an effective method to fully transform the life. Additionally to the total instructions, it has Income Code report that attributes how a person can activate the creativity in their thoughts and obtain accomplishment in life. The primary focus of this guide is on education the brain to turn out to be inventive and help in achieving results inside the life.
Success rate of 0.1%? Where'd you get that statistic? But whatever the actual number, your question is an invalid one. The law of gravity works 100% of the time, except we can fly planes, right? Yes, I know that sounds silly, but it's really to show you how silly YOUR question is because "LoA" works even "negatively" (put in quotations because human perception is what labels things as positive or negative when really, the universe is 'neutral' and things don't happen as a way to punish us... that's just ridiculous, it's not personal).

And no, "But science is sooooooooo mysterious, we can't know for sure..." is not a legitimate argument. REAL science states that you DO NOT believe that something is true UNTIL it has been positively proven, NOT that you treat as if it is because "maybe." And no again, doing so is NOT "keeping an open mind" - keeping an open mind means accepting things for good reasons, not "just because." That's called "being a gullible sucker."

You are one of a kind and you have a unique spiritual fingerprint. A unique abundance DNA. The universe just wants you to recognize and own your uniqueness. Then you can have anything you want because you’ll stop doing things the way you think you should. You’ll know without blinking that you’re the best in the world at being you. And that’s more than enough to attract an extraordinary and abundant life for you and for those you love.

In his 1910 The Science of Getting Rich Wallace D. Wattles espoused similar principles — that simply believing in the object of your desire and focusing on it will lead to that object or goal being realized on the material plane (Wattles claims in the Preface and later chapters of this book that his premise stems from the monistic Hindu view that God provides everything and can deliver what we focus on). The book also claims negative thinking will manifest negative results.[55]
I sent a mail to the support team on how I missed out on the $8.88 flash sale. The $47 is alot of money for a student like me in Nigeria (roughly sixteen thousand naira) and when the universe sent me help and reduced it to $8.88, I couldn’t pay because my Nigerian bank card cannot make the transaction. Please help me Alexander, am almost crashing. I need to manifest money to live an easier life and to fund my education. Please create a platform where Nigerians can pay too, where our bank cards can make the payment. Please am hanging by the last thread.
When it comes to our goals and dreams we all want to know how we can make those ideas or thoughts materialize in our lives. This art of bringing a thought form from an energetic state to the point of materializing in one’s present reality is called Manifestation. The Art of Manifestation is not new. The techniques used to manifest dreams into reality have been available to us since ancient times. The steps are actually quite simple and easy to apply, but don’t let the simplicity fool you. Just like working out to build a muscle, the process is simple but requires consistent practice, dedication and focus to attain the desired result. One must focus their attention on the right things to create the right results.
Since the brain is Velcro for negative experiences, it is natural that we worry so much. It's just the brain's tendency. Keep a worry list for 2 weeks. The minute you start to worry write it down. This not only helps release the heavy energy that often keeps us stuck, but at the end of 2 weeks you will notice none of the worries were warranted. Your brain will have proof that worry is a waste of energy.
LOA is one of those things that just baffles me as to why people buy into it. It literally amounts to nothing more substantial than, "Close your eyes, cross your fingers, and wish on a star, then alllllll your dreams will come truuuuuue!" It survives on the average person's ignorance of advanced science and their tendency to assume that someone using big words and "sciencey-sounding" concepts must know what they're talking about.

I was once where you are so I totally get ya’. After suffering from a myriad of challenges from general anxiety about life to Lyme disease, endometriosis and every autoimmune disease under the sun, I ended up on a search for something deeper than a “fix”. I went to many alternative practitioners – but I couldn’t relate to a single one of them. As a very grounded-in-reality person, many were just too ‘woo woo’ for me and I couldn’t integrate their guidance into my very real-life, life. Then I found myself on an adventurous path of emotional healing — using energy therapy. Talk about ‘woo woo’ right? But with it, I learned. I unfolded. I let go.


It is true what the law of attraction teaches, ‘thoughts equal things’ a truth which is truly worth celebrating! As once we have opened up our minds to the rare realization that we are in fact in charge of the lives that we lead, we can use this precious knowledge that ‘thoughts equal things’ to our advantage in order to change our lives for the better.
Hermeticism influenced the development of European thought in the Renaissance. Its ideas were transmitted partly through alchemy. In the 18th century, Franz Mesmer studied the works of alchemists such as Paracelsus[35] and van Helmont.[36] Van Helmont was a 17th-century Flemish physician who proclaimed the curative powers of the imagination.[36][37][38] This lead Mesmer to develop his ideas about Animal magnetism which Phineas Quimby, the founder of New Thought, studied.[36][39]
Business leaders should use language that affirms positive outcomes. Think about the subtle difference between the words "I am" and "I will be." The former puts you in the mindset of already achieving what you want, while the latter implies something you will do in the future. Be mindful of how you express yourself. Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is famous for saying, among other phrases, "I am the greatest!" I'm confident that you'll agree: "I will be the greatest" just doesn't pack the same punch.
There's one question every business leader must answer: What do I truly want? You need to be specific about what you want so you can figure out how to get there. Do you want to find your next great hire? Do you want to grow your business 20 percent by year-end? Hyper-focusing your mind on the answer to that question will set you on a course to consciously and subconsciously make things happen. Then you can set SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound) so you and your team members will know exactly what you're aiming to achieve.
Replace your worries with thoughts about how things could go right. Worrying can make you manifest what you're trying to avoid.[6] When worries happen, challenge them by questioning how likely they are to happen. Then, think about what has happened in the past when you worried. Next, consider how bad the worst case scenario would be if your worried thoughts actually happened. You'll likely realize it's not that big of a deal in the long-run.[7]
According to Michael Losier’s The Law of Attraction (LOA), you attract into your life whatever you focus your attention and energy on, whether positive or negative. While it is relatively easy to understand this principle, it can sometimes prove challenging to put to use. Oftentimes, when people claim that the LOA doesn’t work, they just haven’t yet mastered how to utilize this powerful and reliable energetic law of the Universe.

The wife from the second example – she does it as well: her thoughts are gaining strength the more she nurtures them, making her feel even more insecure, making her become less and less desirable to her husband; and when he goes, if she doesn’t snap out of it, she could eventually become a vortex of despair, attracting more and more bad things to her life.

Law of Attraction Affirmations can take the form of internal thoughts or spoken words, but they can also be represented visually. Regardless of how you choose to use them, you can design them to reflect your vision of how you want your life to change. For example, many people have great success speaking affirming words into the mirror before going to work, or stating “today is going to be a great day” to infuse themselves with positivity upon waking. When used frequently enough, affirmations can enhance your use of the Law of Attraction by helping to reshape the core beliefs and assumptions that may be holding you back. They promote consistency, optimism and intense focus on the future you want to create.
The technique works because you are using the power of intention to change the energy within and around you. Our example of a job offer is unlikely to materialize out of the blue unless you take action to enable the manifestation to occur. What? You thought the wish would simply materialize while you sat on the sofa? Sorry, you have to do some additional work.
Again, the masculine and feminine join together. This is time to slow down, while discerning and harvesting. Its season is autumn. Its moon phase is the half waning moon. After the full fruition of the creative act, it’s time to get quieter and reflect on the process. How did it go? What did you learn? What are you celebrating? What can go better next time? Do you have a sliver of a glimpse into the new vision, or new dream? Harvest the fruits and feast on them. Receive them deeply. Enjoy each one, like a delicious meal.
Absolute detachment. This step is one where most people stumble. We like to control things in our life because we’re afraid that if we wouldn’t control them then they would not happen. And this is exactly the reason why we need to let them go. If we’re attached to what we want and we obsess about having it NOW then we’re simultaneously saying that we don’t believe that we can have it. Which undermines principle number 4 — creating an unflappable belief. By letting go of when and how, you show that you believe that it is already yours. Because only he who is certain of the outcome can afford to wait.
