"Simply focusing on finding Mr. or Ms. Right isn’t going to get you there, but it is definitely going to help your process if you use other techniques as well! For instance, if you focus on manifesting your happy romantic destiny while creating a strong dating profile and figuring out your goals and deal breakers, you’re more likely to be successful than if you have a negative attitude while doing this important work towards dating smart. ... As with anything else, manifesting your destiny doesn’t happen with a magic wand. Very little in life happens with a single act — but having a positive outlook and focusing on your goal is going to move your success along, in the right direction, that much more quickly. It will also help overcome obstacles that might trip you up with a less focused and positive outlook," according to Masini.
Michale does an incredible job of explaining LOA and sharing how to use it in your own life without all the mumble-jumble. Straight forward, easy to understand, and apply makes it a great book to read and read and read. I also listen to his podcasts and following him on youtube. He practices what he preaches and encourages everyone to be success in manifesting their dreams.
Rhonda Byrne published in 2006 the film The Secret wherein she emphasized thinking about what each person wants to obtain, but also to infuse the thought with the maximum possible amount of emotion. She claims the combination of thought and feeling is what attracts the desire. The Secret says your subconscious mind can control everything that happens around you, including both positive experiences, like having someone call you from miles away, and negative experiences, like death. The Byrne underlines the power of the subconscious mind by asking the reader to take full control of these thoughts, in order to achieve things in life, with the mind, as much as with action. Another similar book is James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, which says reality can be manifested by man. Man and the universe have a force of attraction between them similar to a magnetic attraction. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, says readers can achieve seemingly impossible goals by learning how to bring the mind itself under control. The Power by Rhonda Byrne, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle are similar. While personal testimonies claim the secret and the law to have worked for them, a number of skeptics have criticized Rhonda Byrne's film and book. The New York Times Book Review called the secret pseudoscience and an "illusion of knowledge".
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”.
The simple act of reading or uttering positive sounding statements is futile. This will do nothing to help us manifest our desires. In order for an attraction affirmation to work, it must resonate emotionally with us. If I’m attempting to lose weight and therefore I recite an affirmation every morning about how slim I am or how slender I will be in the future, it will have no effect UNLESS I truly believe in the words I am reading. Many use attraction affirmations under the misguided notion that they DO believe what they are reading or saying. However, there is a big difference between wanting to believe in something and actually believing it. When contemplating 'How to write affirmations that will bring the quickest results, belief is the most important factor.
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.
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.
While affirmations and visualizations are two of the most important tools at your disposal when working with the Law of Attraction, they are far from the only techniques that you can use to create the life you desire. For example, there are Law of Attraction exercises that specifically target negative feelings and help you work on dismissing them, and ways of stopping self-undermining thoughts before they can emerge and take hold. Meanwhile, there are ways to transform your living space to better reflect your goals and to inspire an optimistic mind set, and social methods that enhance your communication and help you to spread positivity wherever you go.

Business leaders should use language that affirms positive outcomes. Think about the subtle difference between the words "I am" and "I will be." The former puts you in the mindset of already achieving what you want, while the latter implies something you will do in the future. Be mindful of how you express yourself. Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is famous for saying, among other phrases, "I am the greatest!" I'm confident that you'll agree: "I will be the greatest" just doesn't pack the same punch.
Manifesting destiny and attracting the appropriate energies is, of course, a very fickle, tricky concept. To learn more about how to play it right and build the life you've always dreamed of, I consulted with experts Cali Estes, PhD, Life Coach, Recovery Coach and Founder of The Addictions Coach; April Masini, relationship and etiquette expert and popular media resource; and Davida Rappaport, intuitive psychic with over 35 years of experience. Here are 11 ways to understand the Law of Attraction and how it applies to manifesting the destiny you desire.
Israel Regardie published books with the Law of Attraction theme as one of his prevailing Universal Laws. In, The Art of True Healing: A Treatise on the Mechanism of Prayer and the Operation of the Law of Attraction in Nature (1937), he taught a focused meditation technique to help the mind to learn to heal itself on a physical and spiritual level. Regardie claimed that the Law of Attraction was a valid method for attracting good physical health and for improvement in any aspect of one's life.
I have known of the Law Of Attraction (LOA) for many years, and first went to hear Abraham in the early 1980s, but I considered the LOA too simple a formula, too cute, to be all that Abraham says. But, after another 35 years of spiritual study, I found myself once again back at the LOA. Only this time with a realization: the LOA is the gravity of the Universe. Perhaps not in a purely physical sense, but by analogy, it is exactly that
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.
When it comes to our goals and dreams we all want to know how we can make those ideas or thoughts materialize in our lives. This art of bringing a thought form from an energetic state to the point of materializing in one’s present reality is called Manifestation. The Art of Manifestation is not new. The techniques used to manifest dreams into reality have been available to us since ancient times. The steps are actually quite simple and easy to apply, but don’t let the simplicity fool you. Just like working out to build a muscle, the process is simple but requires consistent practice, dedication and focus to attain the desired result. One must focus their attention on the right things to create the right results.
Having the simple knowledge and understanding of how powerful the spoken word truly can be, we can utilize it as manifestation tool. Simply stating our desires out loud can be more powerful than we realize. Affirmations are a great example of this to start the manifestation process because we are announcing to the Universe the outcome we want to create as if it has already happened.
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.”
The spoken word has always had great power and always will. It serves many purposes, among them transmitting energy as intent or communicating messages or ideas. If we have a desire or intent we wish for ourselves and our lives, it can solidify it and give us a means of expression for it to set our desires in motion. This can be done in a manner as simple as making a wish for something out loud to another person.
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.
If you want things in your life to get better, focus on the solution, not on the problem. Your thoughts generate the action you take in your life. If your thoughts are soaked in negativity, your action can't be resourceful. Instead of focusing on the elimination of a problem, focus on what you can create instead. Replace worrying with the projection of positive images.
When you first start saying these phrases, they might not necessarily be true. But they should be designed to reflect what you want to be true. You need to make them powerful and unique to who and what you want to become. Then, over time, the consistent repetition of daily positive affirmations will help to reshape your inner beliefs and assumptions about yourself and the world around you. This reshaping gives you a more positive perception of who you are and where you stand. So most importantly, you have to truly believe an affirmation to be true.
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.
9) Mindless: To invoke a LOA, you need to live continuously in an unreal future as you anticipate that it will be once you’ve achieved your goal and only visualize a successful outcome. This shows faith in the universe. Thinking about plans, actions, and challenges are discordant and negative so skip the process and focus on the result; live without regard to the present. This is the definition of mindlessness. Being fully aware of and attentive to the here and now is mindfulness and has been shown to produce powerful health and wellness benefits such as greater life satisfaction and happiness.

These kind of things most of the time happen to us – we don’t plan to wake up in a good mood; but as the day goes on, and the good things keep happening, we begin to notice how happy we are, we are saying and doing all the nice things and, if we don’t stop ourselves (the “too good to be true” moment), it will continue that way, and even more of good things will happen, making us feel even better. If that day could go on forever, we’d probably become a snowball that grows thanks to the good things and good people it absorbs 🙂
I kept hearing about this book. I expected it to be a new age, wish on a star book. But, it was a good read. It reminded me that, at least to some extent, we do create our own reality by the attitude we project. If we are a grump, we attract other grumps, not happy persons, to us. And so on. It is a quick read, a fun read, lots of white space, easy to understand and assimilate, no high psychology words, no mumbo jumbo. Good illustrations. Definitely written for the layman. I've also seen Losier's videos and they are more of the same.
“I worked with Payal in order to manifest a new job into my life. She provided me with guidance and affirmations and I got my new job in under 30 days, along with a raise! I’m so thankful to her because she has a way of understanding people on a deeper level, to help me grow in areas I didn’t even realize! If you can, work with her or support her in any way you can!”
Hi Ozzy, it depends. If you are trying too hard and still focussed on the lack of whatever it is you are wanting, then stop. Relax. Know that it’s being taken care of. All you have to do is know that it’s on the way. Don’t think about the technique at all, or worry that it isn’t working. Keep taking small steps toward your goal. Ask yourself, “What can I do today to move me a step closer?” Have faith and it will show up.
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.
A negative internal monologue puts focus on negative thoughts and will make them grow. The Law of Attraction asserts that whatever you give focus will grow, and an essential step in feeding positive thoughts is gratitude. When you feel yourself going toward the negative, think of specific things you are grateful for to reset your thought process in a positive manner.
As I am starting to receive many emails regarding this article, realize that I may not be able to answer all of the comments. In addition, if you are close-minded and believe that the LOA exists irrespective of data or information to the contrary, then this article is not for you. Thanks for visiting - now you can go back to your LOA abundance. This article is intended for those who are new to the LOA, those who don't know about it, and those who have not succeeded in using it and are open-minded and looking for answers.
The law of attraction is not a magic wand. Because the brain preferentially scans and stores negative experiences, we have to consciously, habitually build the positive mental muscle. We all have layers and layers of stories, limiting beliefs, fears and blocks that have become the interior landscape of our minds and cannot be changed overnight just by thinking positive thoughts.
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%!
Enlist others to hold you accountable for what you've committed to do. You've followed all the steps outlined above, so don't keep it to yourself. The more people you've got pulling for you--and keeping you accountable--the better. When you invite team members to hold you accountable, you are giving them a unique opportunity to see your thought process and how you visualize success. Let them know what you're working to attract, and you'll receive the support you need to achieve your next goal.
The work of quantum physicists during recent years has helped to shine greater light on the incredible impact that the power of the mind has on our lives and the universe in general. The more that this idea is explored by scientists and great thinkers alike, the greater an understanding we have on just how significant a role the mind plays in shaping our lives and the world around us.
