If you read LOA websites and posts, you’d guess that it is might be over 90% effective - everybody seems to be achieving their goals this way. Talk to experts who deal with the general public trying to use a LOA, there’s a completely different story. The failure rate is huge! In fact, LOA expert John Assaraf estimated that the success rate is about 0.1%!! We believe this number to be correct.
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.
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.
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!
There was an inherent truth on this knowledge, unfortunately not everyone who claims to know or understand this truth really does. An based on your original post you investigated in the wrong places. These sources you mentioned were just means to get this current going but they are not definitely the absolute source of truth. Investigate a bit further and try to understand when you find it with an open mind.
The Law of Attraction is among the most popular of the Universal Laws. Advocates of this mind-power paradigm generally combine cognitive reframing techniques with affirmations and creative visualization to replace limiting or self-destructive ("negative") thoughts with more empowered, adaptive ("positive") thoughts. A key component of the philosophy is that in order to effectively change one's negative thinking patterns, one must also "feel" (through creative visualization) that the desired changes have already occurred. This combination of positive thought and positive emotion is believed to allow one to attract positive experiences and opportunities by achieving resonance with the proposed energetic law.
We are what we attract, or so it says in this book. I initially purchased this book for my husband and it does offer some interesting reading material, just not really what I thought it would be after reading so many glowing reviews about the book. Clearly, one does have to be open-minded when reading this book, but also take it all with a grain of salt. It more reminds me of "The Secret" and all of it's hype when it was so popular. According to my understanding of the basic concepts of the book is that everything that happens or lack there of begins in our own minds. Yes, true, that "as so a man think, he becomes". The value of this book is in promoting the idea that you have more control over your life than you think. The mind is capable of a lot, including how your body lives, how you present yourself to other people, etc. When you have a positive train of thought, you will have better health, better prosperity and better life in general. That simply is true and cannot be denied. I think this book is a good stepping stone on where to begin, but is seems reminiscent of Napoleon Hill's, "Think and Grow Rich," or James Allen's, "As a Man Thinketh,". What the book doesn't tell you is that when negative things happen to you, your positive attitude can turn those things into far less tragic events. There are other books that will make this more clear.
Just like you I have been reading and searching as much information related to this topic since I first heard of it years ago. I have fulfilled most if my goals and dreams. But guess what!! None of them are related to yachts, eating caviar, sipping champagne or waiting for a private jet to fly me to my private island. None of those are goals in my life and all of them except for the private island and the yet I have experienced and enjoyed without even having to be a tycoon.
As a mind-reader, you should try to ATTRACT a different job, since in no way do I have any anger towards anyone with erroneous beliefs. I do feel sorry for you, but this is not anger. This is a free country and free society and you are free to believe anything you desire and free to waste your time as you see fit. You can smoke cigarettes as well. They will harm you and that is your choice. Same as a belief in a LOA.
But in truth, there is no alternative to testing the universe in this way and it’s not an arrogant thing to do – the universe isn’t prissy about such matters, and seems to be quite happy to cooperate with you by allowing the Law of Attraction to operate in your favour when you enter into these experiments in a state of clear intention and positive expectation.
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.
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!
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.
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.
"The original creators of the law of attraction going back to the 1880s including Prentice Mulford,James Allen, Thomas Troward, William Walker Atkinson, Bruce MacLelland, Wallace Wattles, Napoleon Hill, Earl Nightingale, and W. Clement Stone promoted the belief that this is a universal law in which you attract only what you are thinking about. Modern LOA proponents such as Rhonda Byrne, Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, Joe Vitale, The Hicks family, and many others have stated similar beliefs."
Be like a kid who allows no impossibility to enter her manifesting realm. "Feeling" helps us release any doubt and negative energy. It generates excitement and positive feelings, which support us to take inspired action! So go test drive that car you want, or feel what it will be like to have the perfect partner in your life, because feeling is believing!
Hope you now have a better idea about how the law of attraction works, I would like to end with a small analogy. Say you have a glass of water, the glass has a limitless supply of water, how much ever you remove the water, it gets a magic refill. Now you use the water to quench your thirst and also use it to water your garden. You can choose to water the plants or the weeds in the garden. Your awareness and thoughts are the water. Plants can be compared with the desired outcomes, weeds can be compared to the negative outcomes, negative thoughts, unhappiness, delusions etc. Be careful what you supply your water to. Growing weeds can stunt your plants’ growth. Best results come when you remove the weeds and only water your plants. Sometimes it happens that some plants die even after your best efforts, then focus growing new plants instead of regretting and thus putting more weeds. Happy growing and happy manifesting.
the trouble is in the mind, for the body is only the house for the mind to dwell in, and we put a value on it according to its worth. Therefore if your mind has been deceived by some invisible enemy into a belief, you have put it into the form of a disease, with or without your knowledge. By my theory or truth, I come in contact with your enemy and restore you to your health and happiness. This I do partly mentally and partly by talking till I correct the wrong impressions and establish the Truth, and the Truth is the cure.
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.
Your language, the words you’re saying, and the emotion behind them are where your manifesting power is concentrated; you’re like a magnet, attracting more of what you’re thinking about and expressing with your words. Now, would you rather be a positive or a negative magnet? Or would you just let the needle on your compass spin, without you directing it at all?
Andy Bailey, an Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) member in Nashville, is an author, CEO and head coach of business coaching firm Petra Coach who serves in an advisory role on the Gazelles Council, leaders of the Scale Up movement. We asked Andy how the law of attraction can impact business owners and their trajectory toward success. Here's what he shared:
The same way you get the chorus to a song stuck in your head is the same way you're going to get a belief system stuck into your head. If you want to manifest the things that you desire easily, pick one of these affirmations. Write it on an index card, your iPhone, the palm of your hand or whatever works best for you. Read it hundreds of times. Connect to that truth within you that you deserve abundance and that the things that you desire flow to you easily. While you're at it, download my free success hypnosis.

Visualization is one of the most essential tools in every leadership toolkit. To gain maximum benefit, you must make your visualization as realistic as possible. Athletes have been successfully using visualization for years in their training. A golfer may visualize the perfect chip shot or a basketball player the ideal process for making a free throw.
If you are new to the Law of Attraction, this book will be beneficial. You are better off reading the Masterkey which is more detailed and at least half the cost. If you are looking for new techniques like this book promised, you will be very disappointed. I also wish the author was more to the point instead of wasting pages telling you how great these techniques would be.
Develop a belief in what I call the “reverse paradigm shift”. In other words, go for it before you have all the answers. Those so called negative energies (known as cognitive dissonance) are actually the magical seeds of creation and unlimited possibilities. Your destiny and your abundance will always be preceded by confusion and uncertainty. Ask anyone who’s been on the journey.
14) Anecdotal Evidence: Evidence that the LOA is an effective way of attaining goals is anecdotal, non-scientific and self-reported. This fact does not prove it doesn’t exist. But closely scrutinize whether you want to invest time, money and energy into something that is ineffective and potentially harmful. People are much more likely to publish successes than failures. We also practice apophenia (the belief that there is meaning behind random data) when we focus on coincidences without regard to the much greater number of times that we do not experience coincidences. How many times did you think of that person and they didn’t call you? Of the two thousand people I thought of today, only two actually called. That’s not a great percentage – 0.1%. But if I think of it in terms of the people that called we get a different story. I thought of Bert and he called me – that’s 100%!
The concept of manifesting destiny, which rests on the Law of Attraction, is the idea that investing positive energy and belief in any desired outcome will allow a person to bring the outcome to fruition. In other words, you have the power to get what you want simply by believing in it. Sound a little crazy? Maybe. But if people swear by it, it's worth at least exploring, right?
Money is just a means of exchange and if you put out the right vibrations, you will attract the situations that call for inspired (read: joyful) action, and then you’ll get the results you desire. It’s important to hold your visualization for as long as you can without any mental or emotional interruption: aim for at least half a minute several times a day, consistently, for a month or so.
