Under laboratory conditions, cutting edge science has confirmed that every thought is made up of energy and has its own unique frequency. And when this energy and frequency of a single thought radiates out into the Universe, it naturally interacts with the material world. Of course, it has long been known that matter, or physical objects, are also just packets of energy at the sub-microscopic, quantum level. And so, as your thought radiates out, it attracts the energy and frequencies of like thoughts, like objects, and even like people, and draws those things back to you.
If you follow this strategy without omitting any single step, you will start attracting whatever you want and it will begin to manifest. Have a great combination of clear idea of what you want, a specific goal with a time frame, high level of desire, high intensity of belief, frequent visualization and repetition of your positive thoughts to attract and manifest whatever you desire in your life.
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.  
It is merely not sufficient to know exactly what you want and to wish for it. It is like calling a fine dining restaurant and just telling them to book a table for you. You have to tell the restaurant clerk that you need a table for 2 for the specific day (say tomorrow) for dinner at 7.30 pm and you want this table to be near the window so that you can have the view of the city.
As soon as I started my day, a boyfriend didnt turn up for our date, I was given a ticket by a policeman for my car tinting being too dark, I saw a text msg that was not meant for me but was about me (another person actually dislikes me) My phone drowned in a cup of coffee, I then used another old phone and the charger was taken off me, then a person that I havent seen for a long time rang me saying he wants to return something that belongs to me that has no value- meaning a great inconvinience for me. All of the above happened in four hours.
Remember that there is a difference between sending out a hope that something you'd like to happen will happen and putting in the appropriate effort or planning to ensure that something actually will happen. If you don't believe that something will happen, perhaps you're not willing to plan and work for it. You need a balance of both hope (to inspire) and effort (to achieve) for an outcome to be realized.
5) No Date: When you live as if you have already accomplished your goals, there is no reason to establish deadlines or timelines. As Secret author Rhonda Byrne stated, “It takes no time for the Universe to manifest what you want.” While goal setting research supports the importance of establishing timelines to achieve success, LOA experts assert that it would be inappropriate to set a deadline for the universe to achieve your goal.

There are certain caveats. Apparently the universe has a language-processing disorder and doesn't comprehend standard English usage of the words don't, not, and no. So, as the book explains, if you summon the universe by saying, "I don't want to spill something on this outfit," the universe translates this as, "I want to spill something on this outfit." If only Rhonda Byrne, the television producer who is the author of the book and creator of the DVD, had been there to counsel those negative authors of the Ten Commandments!


Arielle:It’s called the Law of Attraction and it says that you will attract to you those people, events and experiences that match your state of being. If you focus on having gratitude for the love, companionship and joy you have in your life right now, you will attract more of that into your life. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will send out a message of lack and you will attract more lack into your life.
When you understand the answers to these types of questions about manifesting your soulmate, your mind and heart begin to focus on trying to find love that is based on true mutual understanding and excitement. You can do all kinds of creative techniques to bolster the designing of your life partner. For example, Law of Attraction experts recommend daily visualization exercises in which you conjure up a vivid sense of what your life partner would be like. Meanwhile, you can also create a dream board that represents all the traits you’re looking for and your image of how this relationship will improve your life.

When a week went by without a callback, my husband suggested I phone her, and that I also explore other alternatives just in case. Normally I tend toward the anxiously obsessive, and I would have already been doing that. Instead I told him it wasn't necessary because we already had a perfect kitchen floor. Secret-speak requires this odd future-present construction, which my husband came to call, "sounding like a moron."
When Mark Victor Hansen and I published our first Chicken Soup for the Soul book, we were so overwhelmed with possibilities for making the book a bestseller, we weren’t sure which ideas to pursue first. A wonderful teacher, Ron Scolastico, shared a powerful piece of wisdom with us: “If you would go every day to a very large tree and take five swings at it with a very sharp axe, no matter how large the tree, it would have to come down!”
Second, to assume we are now so aware of all the intricacies that govern our universe and how we interact with it is foolish and only places false limits on us. Modern sciences are revealing new understandings which like it or not once again challenge the very definition of our reality. It is always our natural tendency to reject ideas that do not fit within our existing mental framework if they seem to be “incompatible” with what we “know” to be true. Keep in mind Galileo was prosecuted and nearly put to death for challenging our former concept of reality.
A magnetized piece of iron will lift twelve times its own weight. But demagnetized, it won’t even lift the weight of a feather. Your mind works in a similar way. Magnetized with Creative Thinking and Positive Expectation, you embody the “Law of Attraction”. This means that what you think, say, and do attracts an enormous number of external assets (the commitment, support, and dedicated efforts of other people, the inherent advantages, benefits, and rewards of every situation). This ebook contains 25 activities to help you understand and use the law of attraction TODAY.
Johnathan, I would say that the best way to sum up the Law of Attraction is that it IS a lie, but if you pretend that it is true, most likely it will be. I’m somewhat paraphrasing Richard Bandler there. He would begin a seminar by stating, “Everything we are about to tell you is a lie, but if you act as if it is true, most of the time you will find that it works.” Or something like that. Generalizations are lies, because they are not ALWAYS true. Therefore, it’s a lie. However, generalizations exist because they are GENERALLY accurate. Just not always.
His money-making faculties are too small and too sluggish to produce as much money as he needs. He begins to desire for more. This desire becomes strong enough to arouse every element and force in his money-making faculties; for here be it remembered that the force of any desire goes directly into that faculty that can, by nature, produce the thing desired. This is one of the laws of mind. In addition, the action of his desire tends to arouse all the other forces of his system, and tends to concentrate those forces upon the idea of making more money. In the beginning, no important change in his financial ability may be noticed, except that he feels more and more confidence in his power to secure the greater amount desired. In a short time, however, possibly within a few months, he begins to get new ideas about the advancement of his work. His mind is beginning to work more actively upon the idea of increased gain. Accordingly, suggestions as to how he might increase the earning capacity of his business are constantly coming up in his mind, and ways and means and plans are taking shape and form more and more completely. The actions of his money-making faculties are also beginning to change; that is, they are becoming finer, more penetrating, and more keen so that his insight into financial matters is steadily improving. He is therefore securing the necessary essentials to greater financial gain, and as he applies them all things will naturally begin to take a turn.
Does this resonate with you? Did you have a tough time growing up and find that life as an adult is very difficult? Do you have trouble reacting to things, often in anger or too much sensitivity?  Do you find it hard to have harmonious relationships?  You are not alone, having issues with any or all of these,  is actually very common.  Most people can pinpoint to things that happened in their youth that caused them great pain, which they know still affects them now.  It might be no exaggeration to say that we are all suffering from this at varying degrees.
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.

I AGREE with you when you invite people not to be fooled but, not to be fooled by just believing the first guy who introduces himself as an expert when it is obviously just leading you to pay 299 for a magical LOA course so to go deeper in the study of it before dismissing totally a life changing knowledge. Yours are valuable tools to but there is no need to be general and discriminate 100% something that you have not fully experience yourself.


By the way, you can apply this magic formula to anything: Health, relationships, financial abundance, your business, your career. Even if you bounce from one to the other it’s fine. The universe doesn’t care. So long as you invest in yourself. So long as you’re improving SOME aspect of your inner or outer life every day by 1%, you’ll experience the magic results faster than you’d imagine possible.
Arielle: Yes, I do and I believe that with a little focused time and energy everyone can find theirs.  While most people think of a soul mate in romantic terms, I also believe that there are other kinds of soul mate relationships. For instance, look at the friendship and connection that Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King share.  I would definitely call that a soul mate relationship.  I also believe you can have pets that connect with you on such a deep level that they deserve to be called soul mates.

So, at the risk of kicking up even more dust, let me add in something interesting. While I don’t so much buy the law of attraction as a basis for many of the exercises recommended in the movie The Secret, I do believe that many of the “exercises, activities and practices” are valid and will help serve as a catalyst for achieving what you want out of life.


This Full Moon and Venus retrograde are in harmonious aspects with Saturn. Although Uranus energy is kind of dominating this period, perhaps this can bring some sort of realistic or practical energy to the themes mentioned throughout this article and can also be tied into surprises and shakeups as mentioned above. Or alternatively, we may experience these energies manifest in separate ways.

But then one teacher asked me what did I believe about relationships? And what did I expect in a relationship? And what did I think I deserved in a relationship? And the light bulb went on! I believed all men were abusive. I expected to be treated badly. I had almost no self-esteem, and I thought all men cheated – it was just something women had to put up with.

Think for a minute of someone who got accidentally pushed into the swimming pool. Naturally to survive, he will have a very strong desire to come out of the water on the surface and breathe again. This desire to stay alive and breathe would be 10 on 10, thus a very strong desire. Similarly your goal to earn or to receive 10,000 dollars per month should also be very high – say 8 or 9 out 10 – at least.
Prior to meeting Brian, I had a daily ritual in which I would light several candles at sunset, put on my favorite CD of Gregorian chants and sit in my big, cozy chair.  With my eyes closed I would drop into the feeling of remembering the joy of having my soul mate in my life.  I would experience these wonderful feelings in every part of my body KNOWING that he was on the way. There were days when the thought that he was very late did cross my mind but I would just let those thoughts go and get back into a state of grace….feeling and knowing that his arrival was assured.

For some reason, the seminal work .. “The Master Key” by Haanel is ignored. I know it is not an easy read. And yes, trying to do more than one chapter a week .. will more likely than not .. cause indigestion. As a practicing buddhist (Pure Land) .. I was and am stunned by the parallels to buddhist tenets. And as the Buddha said .. please do NOT BELIEVE anything. Unless you test it yourself. And even then, if it agrees with your insight etc.

If you find yourself running up against limiting beliefs such as, “I’m not smart enough,” “I’m too busy,” “I don’t have the proper training,” or “It is going to take too long and be too challenging,” I encourage you to check out chapter 33 of my book, The Success Principles. It includes powerful exercises to help you shift your limiting beliefs into empowering ones.
Now let’s explore the idea of putting yourself first. This takes commitment. What ways are you not putting yourself first in your life? Are you giving time to people that are draining you? Are you not being honest with the men or women you date by not saying you want a relationship? Are you giving your time to men or women who are unavailable? Are you giving time to a man or woman that does not fulfill you but loves you, simply because you feel protected by the fact that you’re in control and are not vulnerable to getting hurt by them? These are all ideas to think about. Also, this is partially what I mean about working with the universe. You have to show up and face the things that have challenged you so you can personally grow and be the best version of yourself that you can be.
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.

Each one was mesmerizing. Captivating speakers, from Joe Vitale to Jack Canfield and Neale Donald Walsch to John Assaraf. Fascinating to watch. They spoke to the impact the law of attraction has had on their lives and the lives of thousands of others. Then, explanations based in “science” were proffered. Because, for us to accept something as law, we need proof. It needs to work all the time, regardless of belief, for all the people.
Posting the vision board is very powerful and keeps everything you desire alive within your consciousness creating the attraction. I like to make copies and then I post the original on the ceiling above my bed so I see it first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. I also put one in the kitchen, bathroom and in my car. They are a powerful tool for me to create the life I want.
It’s not enough just to say your affirmations or create a vision board and hope for the best. The universe speaks the language of emotions. So even if you are affirming “I am rich and successful,” you have to feel it for it to make a difference. To call in an experience you actually want to have, start to cultivate the emotion of the experience as if it were already real, already happening.
