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.
One of the most important elements of using visualization tools is to find the methods that best maintain constant focus on your objectives.

Unfortunately, this author has an extremely superficial understanding of the LOA. While he may claim to have read all of the books, he clearly didn't understand them. He really isn't to blame as unfortunately many of the books written on the LOA are written by people that do not fully understand it themselves. The statement that positive thoughts always bring positive things is a faulty premise that is not at the basis of the LOA.
“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!”
Thank you for your comments. Hard to be positive when talking about the LOA. It's focus on blaming is pervasive. I am a positive psychologist and have proposed a new way of looking at attraction called the Principle of Attraction. As a Principle, like tends to attract like. Positive thoughts, feelings, actions, and words often attracts positivity...but not always. It's not a law, it's a principle, based on positive and social psychology.
It’s this time of year where we look back and evaluate our highs and our lows. We sometimes dwell on the lows and the things we didn’t accomplish. Being aware of your thoughts is an important form of self-care. Check out this post about 5 Ways To Carry Your Self-Care Habits Through The Holidays if you’re having a hard time sticking to your self-care habits. It is so important that we don’t let negative thoughts fill our minds and our subconscious.
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.
The main principles of the Law of Attraction can also be discovered in the teachings of many civilizations and religious groups. An example, in the Proverbs 23:7, it reads ‘As a man thinketh in his heart so is he’. Proof of praise for the Laws of Attraction can be uncovered throughout the ages; all recorded and taught in different ways, but still there for all of humanity to find.
I purchased the full package with great reservation. But after using it for a few days, I discovered it is well worth it. There were so many “games” to help one with being positive and encouraging benevolent outcomes. The games are varied, well thought out, and engaging. In a good way, they force one to concentrate on the many positive aspects of life, not just financial. The company has also informed me that they are going to come up with even more games with the updates. For me, it is a really good addition to the secret to money which is a good app, but this offers even more.
The problem sometimes comes when you unconsciously focus on not having what you want. Focusing on the obstacles or feeling anxious over the length of time a desire takes to manifest can inadvertently stave off your anticipated outcomes. Remember, energy flows where attention goes. Whatever you focus your attention on will increase in vibration. Check on how you’ve been focusing your attention by taking inventory of what you currently have going on in your life. If your current situation is undesirable, then it’s possible you’ve been focusing on negativity in some arena of your life.
A desire for money is no bad thing! Remind yourself of this and allow yourself to feel worthy of the things that money can buy. Freedom, travel, more time, helping others, new fun experiences. It is important to remember that money is not evil. Money is part of life and wanting it does not make you a bad person or any less spiritual. When your desires come from a pure place of positivity, anything is possible.
Writing your goals will not only help you get clear, but will help you create inspired action steps toward your dreams. Connecting to your "why" means connecting to the feeling that achieving the goal will give you. When we connect to the "why," we raise our vibration and become magnets for attracting the people, circumstances, etc. that will help us achieve our goal.
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.
Absolute detachment. This step is one where most people stumble. We like to control things in our life because we’re afraid that if we wouldn’t control them then they would not happen. And this is exactly the reason why we need to let them go. If we’re attached to what we want and we obsess about having it NOW then we’re simultaneously saying that we don’t believe that we can have it. Which undermines principle number 4 — creating an unflappable belief. By letting go of when and how, you show that you believe that it is already yours. Because only he who is certain of the outcome can afford to wait.
