8) No Support: Since you will always attract what you think about, you need to avoid any type of support groups for people with mental or physical illnesses or for people with similar experiences. Research shows that support groups such as alcoholics anonymous, weight watchers, or breast cancer support are beneficial. The LOA incorrectly predicts that you will make your problems worse.
wallace wattles is not god. just because a teacher of a subject says something dumb like don't help the poor ever doesn't mean the whole subject they teach is worthless. but it's true that if you surround yourself with low achieving struggling people it will effect you differently than the opposite and if you think about illness and victimhood most of the time it will effect you differently than health and power
People living today have the same access to the original creators' texts online as people in 1880 had in printed books. It's exactly the same material. You're essentially arguing against yourself because asserting that no one knows for sure about it would have to apply to the people in 1880 as well. Your argument is an appeal to ignorance, which is a logical fallacy. The text in the creators' books is precisely the data he's referring to, a intellectual creation that has absolutely no scientific basis.
So why bother with the manifestation technique in the first place? Because it is a way to open the door to possibility. To focus your energy on creating the circumstances to bring the desired outcome. To state your intention to the universe so that it can bring it to you. Because taking action on your desire will became a magical adventure. Each day will bring new opportunities, new ideas, new possibilities to take inspired action.
Wow, I am very impressed with the physical manifestation of this app. It seems we have collectively been asking for the same thing, and the creator has really done a wonderful job of putting it all together. (He even answers personally to emails and suggestions, continuously updating...a true leading edge kind of guy.) The app compiles all the tools & games that Abraham has shared in one place, with step by steps and option to save your entries. EASY! I love ease :) The layout is straightforward, simple, all prompts and information are easy to understand and mimics Abraham’s voice. I used to find resistance when prompting & organizing the different games myself, so I was happy to find this app because it is already done for me and I can really focus on my vibration. And I spend many hours a day nursing my baby, so I can easily work on my vibration with this app instead of watching TV or falling asleep during meditation. I truly find joy in doing each one. After reading some of these reviews, I’m excited to purchase the full package. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Michael Losier is the best on the law of attraction issue. He teaches one exactly how to master the art of "believe". It is easy to tell people that the law of attraction works; however, the LOA works if one firmly believes in receiving something specific. Now what if one can not convince oneself to deeply believe? Michael has a whole chapter on how one can realistically think ones desire into reality.
I discovered about Brain Entrainment technique with the help of Manifestation Magic program. And after using it for 30 days continuously for just 15 minutes, it showed me the right direction of my life. Now, I am happy with the career I have, the love I found in my workplace and most importantly people are now more responsive to my ideas and suggestions.
We have been increasingly concerned and committed to physical fitness, diet fitness, emotional fitness, even financial fitness. All of these endeavors are, of course, not only important, but crucial for our well-being. However, have we been including spiritual fitness? What is that anyway? Spiritual fitness is cultivating practices that assist in peace, harmony, joy, compassion,…
7) No Compassion: Don’t get involved with anything negative like charity or helping the needy. This will attract more negativity and poverty. Wallace Wattles, a LOA founder wrote, “Do not talk about poverty; do not investigate it, or concern yourself with it. Do not spend your time in charitable work, or charity movements, all charity only tends to perpetuate the wretchedness it aims to eradicate.” and “Give your attention wholly to riches; ignore poverty.” Rhonda Byrne in The Secret takes this a step further, “If you see people who are overweight, do not observe them…If you think or talk about diseases, you will become sick. What you think or surround yourself with – good or bad, is what you will bring upon yourself.” If you believe in a LOA avoid any of the “helping or health” professions such as physician, nurse, hospital worker, clergy, psychologist, police officer, paramedic, etc. Avoid professions in which you deal with poor people such as accountant, mortgage broker, banker, lawyer, etc. While research shows that charitable work, empathy and volunteering is beneficial to both the giver and receiver, avoid these things if you believe in a LOA.
a) Electrons have positive charges. b) In physics “Like always attracts like.” [magnets?] c) Thinking burns up brain matter. d) Only ether (not air) conducts light and thought. e) Ether connects all minds together. When 2 or more minds come close together, “mind stuff” mixes, and creates a third, “master mind.” f) Higher altitudes have more oxygen, better air for breathing. g) Vibrating sound more quickly turns it into heat, then light, than thought. h) Thought energy is 40,000 Hz to 4 X 1014 Hz or above 7 x 1014 Hz. In reality brain waves are slow 1 – 100 Hz. i) The universe hears nouns, not adjectives or qualifiers or only sees pictures of your thoughts. j) Every thought you have (about 70,000/day) has a specific frequency or wavelength of energy. “Thought Stuff” leaves your brain, travels through the ether around us and causes “Formless Stuff” to create whatever you are thinking about.
Further, visual affirmations are useful ways of reminding yourself to stay connected to positive thoughts throughout the day. A sticky note on the bathroom cabinet, the fridge or the front door can keep you in check if your confidence is wavering, and a “dream board” can be designed to represent your desires and aims in pictorial form. We’ll explain a wide range of ways in which you can use affirmations and teach you how to design them to accurately reflect your underlying goals.
You may be perfectly healthy and yet stressful situations come up all the time… Your boss overworks you all day, your work colleagues look down on you, your marriage is not working, your kids do not respect you, you aren’t getting along with your family members, you are stuck in traffic on the one day you need to get somewhere on time, you miss a lifetime opportunity, your career is plummeting, … the list of stressful situations we encounter on a daily basis is endless.
In 2006, the concept of the Law of Attraction gained a lot of renewed exposure with the release of the film The Secret (2006) which was then developed into a book of the same title in 2007. The movie and book gained widespread media coverage. Rhonda Byrne's book also has influenced the creation of an untitled fiction film based on The Secret, starring Katie Holmes. This was followed by a sequel, The Power in 2010 that talks about the law of attraction being the law of love.
Give it time. Be ready to receive. Think about it this way: When you’re baking a cake, you first decide what kind of cake you want to bake. Then, you focus on choosing the ingredients and putting them all together. But it doesn’t become a cake until you put it in the oven and leave it alone.Staring or poking at it won’t make it bake any quicker; in fact, it may just make you frustrated. Instead, go about your life, letting the cake bake in the oven, with absolute certainty that it will be ready when the timing is right. So take a deep breath and be easy about it. Hold yourself in a calm, uplifted, and confident place, and trust you are releasing resistance that could be preventing you from experiencing your greatest joy.
The Law of Attraction can be understood by understanding that ‘like attracts like'. What this means is that whether we realize it or not, we are responsible for bringing both positive and negative influences into our lives. A key part of the Law of Attraction is understanding that where you place your focus can have an intense impact on what happens to you. If you spend your days wallowing in regrets about the past or fears of the future, you’ll likely see more negativity appearing, but if you look for the silver lining in every experience then you’ll soon start to see positivity surrounding you every day. Therefore, the Law of Attraction encourages you to see that you have the freedom to take control of how your future develops, shaping it in the ways you choose.
An example of a Law of Attraction affirmation that can be adjusted to suit you would be: “I am attracting a better, happier life every day, and I trust the Universe to give me what I need.” To make it even more powerful is to channel your mind on specific elements of the affirmation. For example “I AM attracting a BETTER, happier life every day, and I TRUST the Universe to GIVE ME what I need.”
Law of attraction practiced prior to the 1800s. If you are referring to arcane practices in Babylon and Biblical times that we have little knowledge of, I am aware and have looked at these. If there are some specific and relevant references I would be interested in hearing them. As you believe in a LOA, most of what you hear will be filtered through this lens. As I now do not, most of what I hear will be seen through that lens.
Ed, thank you very much for sharing your gift and talent. You have used just the right words to really allow all of what I’ve been feeling for so many years finally make more sense than ever. You are a true Blessing and I’m so very excited to learn more from you to truly simplify and organize my thoughts and ideas into the life I’ve been trying to create for myself and my family. I think I had a “missing link” that was there the entire time just floating around me that I could access but much simpler through your help. I do very much appreciate your knowledge and your kindness. Sending you lots of thanks and love to you and your family!!
13) Placebo Effect: Placebos are inactive, ineffective substances to which a positive effect has been attributed. The greater your expectations and beliefs that something will be effective, the greater chance it has of creating a positive response. The mind is a powerful tool. We can increase or decrease our heart rate and blood pressure through visualization. A few individuals using a LOA have a firm belief that it will work and so it does. People tend to have more success with the LOA for smaller items for which they did not make a vision board; finding money on the street, getting a check in the mail, hearing from a long lost friend, etc. Is a belief in a law of attraction any better than rubbing a rabbit’s foot, tossing a coin in the fountain, or pulling apart a wishbone? Test it yourself, the answer is no!
This one is the best. I like how this book talks very little theory and goes straight into practical suggestions how to change your mind to more positive, because positive mind attracts positive things. Love that there are tips and tricks for every person from those who are looking for a job to divorcees or even to pregnant women. And what I liked the most it's even if you are not the type of person they are writing about you can still easily incorporate that thinking even in your life. It is all connected. Overall really great book, can't ask for more.
Years later, I learned the same about financial security. When you worry and focus on the “problem” or the lack of financial security, NOTHING good will come from it. Nothing. When I decided to literally focus on every little financial “win,” and get rid of fears around money, my financial situation turned right around. And faster than I thought it could too.
"Scientific experiments using a placebo effect for health reasons have shown that if you believe something will make you feel better. Rven if it is a sugar pill and not a true medication, it will cause you to think you feel better and then you do. ... Every time you think of a negative thought, you need three positives ones to negate it. If you focus all your positive energy on a positive outcome, it will happen. You can see this with prayer, as people focus on sending a positive message up in prayer for a positive outcome," Estes explains.
Example: “I don’t want this pain. I can’t stand this pain” changes to “I want to feel good in my body. I want to be able to walk easily and freely.” Do not use any negative words when you shift your talk, because whatever you focus on, grows. And you are trying to grow the positive, which is what you do want. If you focus on “I don’t want to feel this way,” you are giving your focus to feeling that way and attracting that very thing.
I decided that that goal was to make $100,000 that year. I created an image of a $100,000 dollar bill and hung it on the ceiling above my bed. Every morning I’d see the image. I’d visualize what it would be like to have $100,000. Everything I did was to achieve that goal. At the end of the year, I had made $97,000. This would never have been possible without the Law of Attraction, these visualization techniques and meditation.
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.
It’s difficult to imagine that thoughts and feelings can have an effect on the world around us. Fortunately, advances in technology and science allow us to visibly and immediately experience the effects of our thoughts. Just like watching an apple fall through the air, there are experiments that demonstrate the immediate effects of thoughts and feelings.
Everything in this universe exists like vibrations, including our desires. It’s all about putting them into your life. This is due to blockages or resistance in our minds that do not allow real manifestations. Well, because of the missing component, it’s called “faith.” If you 100% believe that what you want will appear within your reach as soon as you start to pursue your frequency. This frequency correction occurs only in a calm mind that arises as a result of meditation. The correct combination of this meditation to calm the mind to a deep level is to create faith Manifestation Magic as a specialty.
Here is where “yin” and “yang,” “masculine” and “feminine,” start to intermingle. Its season is spring. Its moon phase is the half waxing moon. It's the pollination. The insemination. The energy of life becoming embodied. Nothing short of a miracle, this happens only when the masculine and feminine unite. So much growth happens during this stage, but only at a very microscopic level. It’s underground. Hidden. Like a seed or an embryo. Protect the mystery. Incubate and keep it to yourself.
Replace your worries with thoughts about how things could go right. Worrying can make you manifest what you're trying to avoid. 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.
I am motivated and encouraged after reading this book. This book talks about the power of affirmation and how it can be manifested in your life in whatever situation or circumstance you are in. This is helpful especially for those who struggle and are at odds with life. It will also push you to have a positive outlook in life and exudes positive energy and positive vibes. The different affirmation statements given are beneficial and uplifting. They are so powerful that even as I am reading and trying to recite and repeat them, I could sense positive energy flowing in. Truly, positive affirmations bring positive effects in you! I recommend this book to everyone.
Another example could be to bring new a relationship into your life. Define clearly the type of relationship you most need, even if it is not the obvious first desire. Although you may want committed intimacy, maybe what you need most at the moment is supportive friendship. Assess any limiting beliefs you hold about that type of relationship. Finally, decide what you need to clear out of your mind or heart to allow this is to manifest for you now.
Although the theory behind the Law of Attraction is very simple, putting it into practice on a conscious level takes work. Negative and limiting belief systems are buried deep inside us. Changing or ridding yourself of ideas and old habits that defeat you at every turn is possible. Are you up to the challenge? Start by learning how to break the habit of attracting negatives.
Once you achieve the Theta state of mind you are guided by the program to use various techniques such as “subliminal mind commands”. This technique helps you get rid of old patterns and adopt new positive patterns. For instance, you remove negative thoughts that tell you “I am unworthy” and take up new positive patterns that otherwise help you think that “I am powerful and unique. “I am a failure” is replaced by “I can accomplish anything”.
Hanging onto negative emotional energy is bogging down your vibration. The more you release, the less you are vibrating at a level of attracting more of that. Releasing energy about fear of illness for me, I believe has really helped me stay healthy and strong. Releasing old stuff about money has prevented me from going back to a place of, well, being broke.
This is a great book. But it doesn't really get into "The Secret BEHIND The Secret" so-to-speak. "The Master Key System" by Charles F. Haanel still is, and will ALWAYS be, the greatest book on this subject that has ever existed. It is "one stop shopping" and explains it all in a very simple and easy-to-read book that is almost a hundred years old. This book was the third I got from Esther and Jerry Hicks, and was not a bad read for what I knew at the time. But "The Master Key System" was TRULY the life-transforming book I needed to read. And THAT was the one that changed my life. This one goes into WHAT The Law of Attraction can do. But not really HOW or WHY.
The Law of Attraction has been popularized in the early 21st century by books and films such as The Secret. This 2006 film and the subsequent book use interviews with New Thought authors and speakers to explain the principles of the proposed metaphysical law that one can attract anything that one thinks about consistently. Writing for the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, Mary Carmichael and Ben Radford wrote that "neither the film nor the book has any basis in scientific reality", and that its premise contains "an ugly flipside: if you have an accident or disease, it's your fault".
