I can’t give a definitive answer to the first question. We all experience the world in different ways and hold different perspectives about things and events in the world. We may even hold the same view about something and express in contradicting language. It is up to you to test the law of attraction in the ways described below and see for yourself.
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, properly applied (and many LOA practitioners do not understand this), does not mean one should not plan, make goals.etc. When PROPERLY applied, both action-orientated goals combined with a positive mental attitude will attract/bring/result in the circumstances for success. Hence, it's employing the right techniques in the physical and mental planes.
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.
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.
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.
Some of the most powerful affirmations are brought to life most significantly by understanding and using Law of Attraction methods. Law of Attraction focusses heavily on training your sub-conscious mind from limiting and often damaging beliefs that are instilled in us throughout the course of our lives. Therefore Law of Attraction affirmations specifically target the areas of your life that need improving and help you believe that you really can attract all of your dreams by improving self-perception. They also designed to ensure that you keep constant attention to your thoughts and behaviors as your day progresses. And by becoming more conscious of the way that you perceive yourself, in turn, this helps to combat the limiting beliefs that might otherwise creep in to create a negative reality.
This was a wonderful book. Sure there are a lot of typos but anyone who is serious about learning what exactly the "Law of Attraction" is & how to use it will get past that very quickly. The book was very informative & perfect for people who are new to the LOA concepts. I couldn't wait to recommend to family who I've been trying to get to understand what I've been doing to drastically change my life to a beautiful thing so quickly. The author may have made a few grammar mistakes but he definitely knows what he is talking about. He has the gift of sharing what he knows in a way that he's able to change peoples' lives. I wish everyone could see how it's possible to change everything you're not ok with in you're life & create the exact life that you want. He gives you all the tools you need to make that change. I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. GREAT JOB!

Have a clear intention. Conscious manifestation is all about intention. Intend that your vision happens at your will. Manifestation doesn’t require an effort but being focused on what you want. Intention gives a clear direction to your desire. By being focused, you say to the energy where it should go. Imagine that you’d like to start a yoga studio but your energy and focus would go on being on Facebook and chatting with your friends. While there is nothing inherently bad about that, the thing is that you lack energy that you need to support your dream. Every dream needs a certain amount of energy to manifest in a physical reality. This is where focus and intention play a major role.
