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."

Your actions in this world have more consequences than we can completely comprehend. What a person generally desires is a thing or a monetary result. This selfish touch may unconsciously lower our energy level. For example, say you want to buy a new house. If you only focus how other people may think about you when you own a new house, how to show off, etc. then it is less likely for the energy to flow and for the house becoming a reality. Instead see the bigger picture and truly feel what the new house can do to the world and you. The number of people who will get employment from constructing the building, the way you are your family will enjoy the new house, imaging the amazing feeling to be in the house, having a good time with friends, neighbours etc.
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.
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.
Well, that is because of missing ingredient called ‘belief’. If you believe 100% that what you want exists, it will come to you once you match the frequency of it. This frequency matching happens only with a quiet mind, which comes through meditation. The right blend of this meditation for calming the mind at a deep level, belief instillation is the specialty of Manifestation Magic.
There is no right or wrong answer to when is the best time to use affirmations. Most people prefer to use affirmations in the afternoon or evening, however, there is apparently a far greater benefit from using them in the morning. The main reason is that if you use your affirmations in the morning, you are effectively setting your day up by starting out in a positive frame of mind. Plus, saying powerful affirmations when you wake up can help you shake off any negativity from dreams or block your brain from filling up with any problems or difficulties you may be facing.
I worked with a professional footballer once. He was getting very nervous about shooting goals. He kept missing even though he was very talented. I insisted that he kept watching himself on TV scoring goals and burned that image into his consciousness. I didn’t want him thinking about anything else. Every time he had a negative thought he was to switch that picture, either on the TV or on the TV in his mind. And he was to surround the thought with positive emotions of love and respect for himself.
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.

Manifestation Magic written by Nathan Cadbury is a short work detailing positive steps one can take to change the way they think in order to change their circumstances. I received this book in exchange for a review and found this inspirational self-help book well written though a bit repetitive. I suspect the repetition is intentional in order to reinforce the concepts explored by the author. The material presents as a coach or mentor would approach a student they were hoping to lift up to higher levels of thought and action. The visualization techniques would be helpful to anyone setting new goals or preparing for a life course change.

Energy orbiting is the key that helps one change the negative traumas, thoughts, and beliefs in the subconscious mind and conscious mind into positive ones. These are the negative aspects which are to blame for the chain of unfortunate events taking place in your life. Effective energy orbiting is done by reaching deep within yourself into your “Transformation zones”. Here you should control your mind so that it shifts from the Beta state characterized by wakefulness and activity into Theta state characterized by calmness and deep meditation or deep sleep.
If you’ve been part of the yes supply community for a while now you’ll know all about manifestation and the power of positive thoughts. If you’re new around here, manifesting is the idea that by filling your subconscious with thoughts and images of what you really want and by speaking positively about these things, you will bring them into your real life and manifest your yes.

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.


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.
Of course hard work is great, but only if you are passionate, inspired and moving through your day-to-day tasks with a sense of excitement and expectation for positive results. If you are working hard but you feel miserable, resentful and cannot help but notice you are still broke the whole time. Well you’re not ever going to move into a rich mindset that promotes the flow of money. You have to move away from that habit that keeps you justifying why you don’t have the income you want, and think beyond it.
This step is important because those competing signals can be quite strong. Weaken the signal or change the direction of those thoughts like this: Approach those feelings with the love and compassion that you would feel towards a lonely, small child or a hurt animal. When you love yourself, you open up the possibility to receive your greatest desires, and you begin to only desire the things that are best for you.
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.

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.
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.

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!
As always with the law of attraction, never focus on the negative side of things: “I hate my job and I want to quit” will only attract more of the negative things related to your current job, making you feel like you’re trapped, causing you to attach more negative feelings related to changing your job; similarly, since the words are the expression of our thoughts, don’t use the negative words – like don’t, won’t, dislike, hate, unhappy. 
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. 

I read similar books often. I loved The Secret series by Rhonda Byrne. But this book adds meat to the bones of all the other LOA books I have read. It explains how and why LOA may, or may not, work for you. The writing style is conversational and clear. The guidance appears sincere. The book is written by someone who wants you to really understand LOA and how it can work in your life. I came away inspired to try LOA instead of saying 'what drivel.' Yes, there are a multitude of typos. Try and not get stuck on those. Instead, look for the message. It is laid out and waiting for you to try it. I will.
Many people have limiting beliefs which keep them from allowing abundance and happiness into their lives. If this describes you, realize that you must first change your limiting beliefs into thoughts that you are deserving, worthy, lovable, desirable, and capable—as well as smart enough, strong enough, attractive enough, rich enough, good enough, and “enough” in every other way that matters to you.
Well, that is because of missing ingredient called ‘belief’. If you believe 100% that what you want exists, it will come to you once you match the frequency of it. This frequency matching happens only with a quiet mind, which comes through meditation. The right blend of this meditation for calming the mind at a deep level, belief instillation is the specialty of Manifestation Magic.

The law of attraction suggests that you can attract positive or negative things into your life through your thoughts and actions. It relies on the theory that everything is made up of energy, so the type of energy you put out will come back to you. If you’re ready to use the law of attraction to tell the universe what you want, start by creating a positive mindset. Then, take action toward your goals and confront your setbacks with a good attitude.
Instead I have been able to approach life in a different way. Learning to be thankful for the things I keep om receiving everyday, such as: The love of my kids, my friends, the overall experience in my journey and of course I have been throught bad ones and good ones. But all of those experience are an invaluable treasure to me. So dont assume everyone wants to attract the things you mentioned before.

These are the negative aspects which are to blame for the chain of unfortunate events taking place in your life. Effective energy orbiting is done by reaching deep within yourself into your “Transformation zones”. Here you should control your mind so that it shifts from the Beta state characterized by wakefulness and activity into Theta state characterized by calmness and deep meditation or deep sleep.
10) Blame Yourself: As the LOA is supposed to be a perfect, universal law, positivity should ALWAYS attract more positivity. The corollary of this is that you alone are completely responsible for any goal that was not successfully achieved, no matter how unrealistic the goal. This assumes that you not only control your thoughts and actions, but also those of everyone around you…and nature. The fact is, that you don’t. Sorry to break that to you.
Your Achieving your success EXACTLY the way YOU believe it should be attained. I understand how you feel about LOA being pseudoscience and I admire the way you can approach this sticky subject without ruffling the feathers of LOA believers. Money is what most people strive for because of social programming. It isn't even what most of us truly desire. LOA doesn't say everyone will feel the same about the appropriate amount of ACTION which needs to take place. Basing your level of success on the materialistic desires of modern society will of course leave the majority of people "Broke" When you realize the truth of the LOA. You'll see that it's all about "Feelings" which guide us to our ultimate purpose. Which we cannot even describe with any known words in our English language....the word LOVE is as close as we've come to describing it so far in my opinion...May I suggest that it's possible that you have already attracted into your life exactly what it is that you truly want...remember most of what we think is buried in our SUBconscious..maybe Love and understanding or a sense of achievement or FEELING we are headed in the right path is all we want deep down. We can have different approaches to achieve the same end goal. If we do what FEELS right with 100% honesty. Neither of us is on the wrong path of what it is we desire truthfully...Maybe you writing these articles and books resisting the LOA is attracting the very thing it is that you desire truthfully on a subconscious level....People who understand you? friendship? love??…LOA is just like Burger King brother. Have it your subconsciousway!
Determine the desire you would like to see made manifest. For an example, let’s say you desire to lose weight. It’s very important to begin with the beliefs you currently hold. Beliefs can and do shift as our thoughts change and shift, but we must allow some time for this occur. Start where you currently are. Write as positive a statement as possible while still adhering to something you can believe. A statement such as “I am becoming super slender as I sleep” will have no ability to attract or manifest your desire if you do not believe it. Perhaps a statement such as “I know my body is capable of becoming more slender” would be more believable and will still likely illicit a response of positive emotion. What you are looking for as you write your basic affirmation is a feeling of resonance or positive emotion when you read it. You want something that give you an inner “Yes! I know this is true and I know I can do this” feeling. Think of an affirmation as a ‘cheerleader’ of sorts, spurring you on and uplifting you to feel positive about the attainment of you goal. Keep in mind that once you reach a place where the full attainment of your desire feels easy, believable and probable, you are right on the cusp of its manifestation. Affirmations are stepping stones to take us to that place.
Learning this was a lightbulb moment for me! I love this principle of the Law of Attraction. Some people refer to this “inner being” as your “higher self,” “soul,” or “core.” This is the part of you that only wants you to experience joy and love and not experience feeling bad, seeing yourself as unworthy or unlovable and other negative beliefs and emotions we can tend to dive right in to. The teachings of Abraham say that your emotions are indicators of either a “match” or “mismatch” in what you are thinking/feeling and what your inner being is wanting. When you become out of alignment with what your inner being wants, you feel this as negative emotion. You are essentially feeling the separation of yourself from you inner being/knowing.
You’re also competing with other people’s intentions – both good and bad. So, be aware that if your desire is in direct conflict with someone else’s stronger desire, the universe will respond accordingly. The Law of Attraction does not give you full and total control of your life, it simply states that like will attract like. You can use this to your advantage by being intentional with your desires, but this isn’t magic.
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.
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.
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. 
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.
This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to create positive energy. In short likes attract like. This is such an amazing read that the book contains proven steps and strategies on how to create positive energy in life using affirmations based on Laws of attraction. The book is simple and pleasant but covers all the important facts you want to know about the law of attraction As a person who have learned, researched and experienced the law of attraction. This book is very interesting; it contains lots of useful information on the law of attraction and it's written in a clear and easy to follow manner. 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. Informative and valuable book
Thanks for your comments. Since you obviously have advanced knowledge on how to use a law of attraction, I assume that you have achieved all of your goals and fulfilled all of your dreams. Now you are a very rich millionaire trying to help the rest of us. Actually, you wouldn't be doing that because as LOA founder Wallace Wattles said "do not talk about poverty...do not spend your time in charitable work,...all charity only tends to perpetuate the wretchedness it aims to eradicate."
At this point, you may still remain unconvinced that this universal principle — which attracts like to like — still seems interwoven in magic and, therefore, unreal. Perhaps it’s because we’re talking about intangible concepts like thoughts and feelings. At least with gravity, an apple thrown up into the air falls onto the ground. You may not understand it, but you can visibly and immediately experience the effects.

When I got so sick of being on top of everything that I stopped caring enough to obsess over each disease and symptom I had, stopped taking all my supplements, and stopped doing what felt good to my doctor, but bad for me…I started to attract actual solutions that could help me heal. (Note: Please do not stop taking your doctor’s advice. I am simply sharing my own experience). It was simply because I stopped making my whole life about “illness” and “problems.”
So we know energy is the basis of all matter. And energy is boundary-less and can spread throughout the entire universe. So perhaps you see the possibility that our thoughts – which are clearly energy – could interact with other energies in the universe. And if they do this, maybe they can affect the form in which energy comes into being (or manifests) as physical reality.

Walk that talk! To attract positive change into your life, you need to be emitting positive energy into the universe. The best way to usually do this is to act ‘as if’. Therefore, don’t just tell yourself what you want through affirmation; act as though you already have it. One great tip for making this easier is to say ‘thank-you’ at the beginning of your affirmations. This can help to convince your subconscious that you are already enjoying something.


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[48] 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".[46]
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.

Now the “masculine” takes the lead. Its season is summer. Its moon phase is the full moon. Once the gestation completes, it’s all forward movement. Up and out. Moving ahead. Making it happen. Clearing the path. Exerting radical discernment to fiercely serve the vision to full fruition. There’s rapid growth and partnership here, happening in the full light of day for all to see and partake in. Execution and embodiment of the vision.

This is the most “yin” or “feminine” stage of creation. Its season is winter. Its moon phase is the new moon. Within us, it’s the idea. The spark of insight. The vision. Dream. Intuition, or the invisible nudge from deep inside. We can’t see it, touch it, or point to it. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t trust it. Believe. The gifts from the muse can’t be scientifically proven (yet), but they're real. Talk to them. Partner with them. Ask them questions. Trust. They will answer, if you slow down, get quiet, and give them the space to whisper to you.
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.
This book presents the powerful basics of the original Teachings of Abraham. Within these pages, you’ll learn how all things, wanted and unwanted, are brought to you by this most powerful law of the universe, the Law of Attraction. (that which is like unto itself is drawn). You’ve most likely heard the saying dquo;Birds of a feather flock together," or EM>Law of Attraction has been alluded to by some of the greatest teachers in history, it has never before been explained in as clear and practical terms as in this latest book by New York Times best-selling authors, Esther and Jerry Hicks.Learn here about the omnipresent Laws that govern this Universe and how to make them work to your advantage. The understanding that you’ll achieve by reading this book will take all the guesswork out of daily living. You’ll finally understand just about everything that’s happening in your own life as well as in the lives of those you’re interacting with. This book will help you to joyously be, do, or have anything that you desire!
I was thinking the same. I've never heard a "professional" man of his age, speaking like such a catty little 15 year old girl. If you read all the comments you can see how he speaks down to/mocks every person who disagrees with him, while sarcastically throwing little digs in wherever he can. I came to this article looking for evidence to discredit the LOA. I just can't seem to take anything he wrote seriously because of his unprofessionalism. Very narrsassitic.
Of course hard work is great, but only if you are passionate, inspired and moving through your day-to-day tasks with a sense of excitement and expectation for positive results. If you are working hard but you feel miserable, resentful and cannot help but notice you are still broke the whole time. Well you’re not ever going to move into a rich mindset that promotes the flow of money. You have to move away from that habit that keeps you justifying why you don’t have the income you want, and think beyond it.
It's curious that people who believe in a LOA are critical of those who don't and believe them to be close-minded. I have presented a lot of new data such as the erroneous science and the data showing that acting as though you had already accomplished your goals was detrimental to you doing so. Yet, LOA proponents do not look at this with an open mind and reconsider their belief system. In this way LOA is akin to a faith-based religion, except that religious beliefs can't be disproven.
The point is, you can go through any personal development program in history. Any of the great books “The Secret” and “Think and Grow Rich”. An Anthony Robbins program. The real masters all understand the same secret. It’s not just the tools and techniques that make a difference. It’s showing people how to open a channel to abundance that really counts.
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).
You can do this yourself. You can become someone who purposefully creates ripples in the universe. Did you know, everything you do energetically ripples out and affects others? And the ripples then come back to you. This process is fast. Don’t underestimate how possible it is for you to be a true catalyst for change. You can be a magnet for all the positive ripples floating around out there. Like a radio station, you can tune into the good stuff. Starting right now.
There is no real risk to chasing your dreams. As far as I can tell, it’s a lot of fun and a thrilling journey. My experience with countless clients over many, many years, is that all the risk…all the frustration…and all the disappointment, is born from not chasing dreams. (But please remember, there is a way to chase dreams successfully which is like chasing butterflies. Put yourself in the right energy field, and become a magnet for those butterflies. The more direct method of butterfly catching is so much harder).
Start by paying attention to what you focus on. Do you pay attention to what's going right, or what's going wrong? When you're working on manifesting your dreams, obstacles and challenges will arise, but when you focus on what's right, you become an incredible problem-solver, which builds confidence and quickly raises your energetic vibration. You will move through obstacles quicker.
