How can you tell when you’ve reached a level of belief regarding an attraction affirmation? You will feel positive emotion or resonance with what you are reading or reciting. When you use an affirmation that resonates positively, you are using a tool that will help you to manifest your desires quickly. Another reason why I’ve written about “how to write affirmations” is because it’s extremely important when using attraction affirmations to personalize them to yourself. While there is no harm in using an affirmation written by someone else IF it resonates or vibrates in a highly compatible way with you. I can think of nothing better to successfully manifest your desires, than writing an attraction affirmation yourself that specifically applies to your own very unique situation and perspective. If writing your own affirmations from scratch seems too difficult, feel free to tweak the content of pre-written affirmations to suit your own personal requirements.
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.

This book contained in proven steps and strategies to create positive energy in life using positive thoughts based on the Law of Attraction helps me to create good affirmations in order to continue manifesting anything I require in my life. The Law of Attraction can play a vital role to bring success, fulfillment and contentment in all area of life. It also used in love and relationship,career development, health and well-being and weight loss. People can fight addictions such as drugs, nicotine and alcohol by dint of the Law of Attraction. But the Law of Attraction only works when you are able to consciously clear your mind of all negative thoughts. This book really amazed me by veiling the secret of the Law of Attraction.
The problem sometimes comes when you unconsciously focus on not having what you want. Focusing on the obstacles or feeling anxious over the length of time a desire takes to manifest can inadvertently stave off your anticipated outcomes. Remember, energy flows where attention goes. Whatever you focus your attention on will increase in vibration. Check on how you’ve been focusing your attention by taking inventory of what you currently have going on in your life. If your current situation is undesirable, then it’s possible you’ve been focusing on negativity in some arena of your life.

The first article about this was in Psychology Today - “Throw Away Your Vision Board.” After a quarter million hits and much hate mail, I wanted to make sure that I had a thorough LOA understanding so I read every book from the originators of the law in the late 1800s and became a certified “Advanced Practitioner of the Law of Attraction” by one of the authors of "The Secret." I then wrote “Throw Away Your Vision Board 2.” This time the feedback was a little more positive. I recently published the book, Throw Away Your Vision Board: The Truth About the Law of Attraction. This article will summarize 14 reasons why there is no LOA.  

According to the Law of Attraction, what you think and feel shapes your reality. The power of affirmations lies in their ability to transform your external world by first changing your internal one. In addition, you can use affirmations for all sorts of goals, from self-confidence to career success, love, and abundance. Their only limitations are the ones you place on them.

Thank you for your comments. Hard to be positive when talking about the LOA. It's focus on blaming is pervasive. I am a positive psychologist and have proposed a new way of looking at attraction called the Principle of Attraction. As a Principle, like tends to attract like. Positive thoughts, feelings, actions, and words often attracts positivity...but not always. It's not a law, it's a principle, based on positive and social psychology.

The author needs writing instruction and possibly a brain scan. Not even the most talented editor could save this book. My 11-year-old nephew has a more sophisticated writing style! I'm paraphrasing: The Law of Attraction is a very important concept. This very important concept can make your life better. If you pay attention to your world, you will experience the law of attraction, which is very important, and it will improve your life so it will be better.
It is also important to write your affirmation in present tense. Use words such as “Is” “I am becoming” “I am” “I have” rather than words such as “I will be” “I am going to be,” etc. There is great creative power in the present moment and by stating your attraction affirmation with wording that alludes to future success, you’re missing out on this.
And NOT EVERYTHING is your fault. As a psychologist, you should know that we have 65000 thoughts a day and most of them are not conscious. In that case how are you supposed to know that you were thinking so subconsciously? (SUBCONSCIOUS thoughts matter too!). In fact, LoA users use their subconscious mind as a great asset. The truth about the law of attraction is actually simple.

A lot of emphasis is put on the new age philosophy that we have to think positive thoughts but more importantly we have to focus on what is behind the thoughts, that is your state of being. Are you in a “fulfilled” state or are you in a “needy” state. Needy state is an illusion that thing you desire will buy you happiness. This greatly hampers the manifestation and you would be attached to the outcome and not be able to put in your best efforts. Be in the fulfilled state. Now it can get tricky here, you will now put the fulfilled state into a desirable object. Don’t do that, you just have to keep watching your mind objectively when it acts in needy state and that state will lose its grip. I highly recommend Anthony de Mello’s book “The Way to Love” to go beyond attachments and fear. Also find a meditation path that suits you. This will greatly help you to align your intentions with the totality’s intentions.
Your second point is an interesting discussion. You are correct that in its infancy, psychology was criticized for claiming to be a scientific field and not living up to that assertion by performing quality research. I believe that this question has been put to rest as the rigors of publishing in psychology require randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trials.
Some of the biggest successes in business, politics, sports and entertainment credit the Law of Attraction and visualization for their success. As legendary basketball player Michael Jordan once put it, "You must expect great things of yourself before you can do them." As a business leader, you have to envision yourself in the place you want to be before you can get there.
Great article Neil! The biggest misconception about the law of attraction is people just think all you need to do is visualize and you will get what you want,we all have limiting beliefs which are chains holding us back from manifesting what we want,we’ve gotten these limiting beliefs when we were young from our parents,friends,relatives ,e.g if you’ve always been told by your parents “money doesnt grow on trees” and that becomes a deep rooted limiting belief ,its going to be hard to visualize and attract money into your life unless you get rid of the limiting beliefs, I discovered a method from a blog that showed me how to get rid of any limiting beliefs that you may have and started attracting what i wanted in just a few days ,here's the link if you want to learn how to do the same: instantlawofattraction.com/law-of-attraction-breakthrough/
And I know some people – maybe even YOU! – reading this will be thinking of asking for help with an issue on which you simply need guidance rather than a clear “yes” or “no”. Well, that’s fine too, but in either case make sure that the universe knows you want a clear, unequivocal answer within the next 48 hours. The Law of Attraction will provide it as requested….

Think about the strengths and energies that make you unique. When you were a child you thought to yourself “Wow, I am ME. Nobody else is me or can feel the feelings I feel. They’re mine alone. This energy is uniquely my energy.” Then, of course, the world trained you out of this way of seeing things. You wanted to be the same as everyone else (or at least, they wanted you to be the same). Breaking free and removing failure from your vocabulary allows you to follow your bliss with ease.
And, just as an important side note: Your subconscious is way, way more powerful than you possibly give it credit for. Most people don’t realize this fact. Your subconscious knows exactly what you’re going to do. It’s infinitely more aware of what’s happening in the universe than your conscious mind. It simply won’t be bullied. It’s happy for you to tell it what to do, once you master the process of doing so.

Most people don’t consider using the Law of Attraction to bring better health into their lives, but as you noticed in the results of the aging experiment, it’s actually a great tool for that purpose. Because the Law of Attraction works with thoughts and thoughts affect our physical reality, you may be attracting poor health into your life right now without even realizing it.
When you protect yourself from disappointment, loneliness, heartache and failure, you often deny yourself the thing that you want the most. You swap risk for unhappiness. If you’re searching for love, for instance, you need to allow yourself to go on the journey. Someone out there is searching for you just as desperately as you’re searching for them. Maybe you already know them? Maybe they’re about to walk into your life (through the power of the law of attraction) just as soon as you make yourself energetically ready for them?

Have a vision. You need to know exactly where you wish to go. There is no way around this first step. It’s like going for a trip somewhere not knowing exactly where. You might end up in your neighborhood wondering why you aren’t some better place. Well, you just wanted to get somewhere else, without a clear vision and that is what you’ve got — you’re somewhere else. Once you know that you’re heading to Hawaii, you know which plane to take. It works exactly the same with anything in your life. Once you have a direction, your mind will align your actions towards your goal.
