The crux of the issue is that the law of attraction, at times, SEEMS to work with absolutely no physical effort. I’ve done it myself, with things as simple as what I eat for dinner and who I’ll run into today. It was my own skepticism that led me to test the “law,” which I’m wont to concede is really a “law” and not some misunderstanding of a larger phenomenon. I was torn between the optimism-pessimism explanation and the metaphysical manifestation explanation, and I saw the real determinant as whether or not I could literally “draw” or “attract” things to me without seeking them out myself. The truth is this was a meaningless endeavor, since every action taken could unwittingly bring me to my goal.


12) We’re Not Perfect: The LOA is a “perfect law” and should result in a “perfect” life. We are told that no goal is too big if you can think it; there is no such thing as an unrealistic goal. From The Secret “You can think your way to the perfect state of health, the perfect body, the perfect weight, and eternal youth. You can bring it into being, through your consistent thinking of perfection.” Reality check -life is not perfect. It can be great, fantastic, amazing, incredible, even optimal. But perfect? Won’t happen. What’s the problem with this way of thinking? Why not expect perfection? Fantasizing and striving for perfect makes you feel better in the short term but actually reduces your chance of attaining your goals and results in more unhappiness and blaming. If you are only going to be satisfied with perfect results – perfect health, perfect body, perfect family, perfect marriage, perfect friendships, perfect kids, perfect house, perfect job, perfect life; you are in for a perfect disappointment. Research studies support this.
I personally think that the immense pain we are carrying inside is being seen in a very obvious, global way.  We write about this a lot here at Collective Evolution. There is so much division between groups and, political parties etc that the way we are communicating with other’s has become, well, quite nasty.  Are we taking our anger out on people we don’t talk to face to face because we are hurting and need to offload that somehow?
A favorite Abraham-Hicks’ quote of mine is “a belief is just a thought you keep thinking.” What does that tell us? That beliefs can and do change. But knowledge, understood as an evidence-based understanding of something, is unwavering. Well, maybe there’s more of an 80/20 rule about it. I mean, once upon a time we just knew the Earth was flat. Now, we know it’s not.
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[49] 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".[47]
I believe in the 1960s humanity was not ready for such a figure, in the sense that he would become an idol and people would not heed his message deeply and apply it to themselves, thus stunting their evolution. This is what happened with the original Jesus, whose message to humanity, “Whoever believes in me will also do the works that I am doing; He will do even greater things than these…” mostly fell upon deaf ears.

Today is Friday! First, let me say I went to my job 9 in the morning and our checks didn’t come yet! Mind you, I spent my last to get there. All I could do was go back home. I was upset a first but I took a deep breath and told myself that everything that happens is for my greater good. Later that afternoon, my sister let my use her car to go pick my check up. To my WONDERFUL surprise.. I had TWO checks waiting for me. As far as I know, I was only suppose to receive one! I definitely walked out the building feeling so good! The first words that came to mind were Thank You God.
This is when we begin the search. Most of the times, it is intensively excruciating and disappointing. We may get in relationships that turn out not to be what we expected. We get disappointed and discouraged, and we are deeply mad not only on our partner, but to the whole opposite sex in general. Some people close themselves completely and are not able to attract ANYONE into their love – they become lonely…

The most essential secret that have learnt from you,is that one should not place limitations on the capacity of the universe.Let the universe avail to you all your desires in its own timing.Your work is just to feel good,because when you feel good you are always in the process of attracting something you want.Whatever you want is a frequency so you just have to tune in and match to the frequency you want,if its a mansion, a car,your dream job, a beautiful wife it will all manifest according to the size of your imagination and your level of your commitment towards achieving your dreams.Have a marvelous and a joyous life everyone.
Eliminating physical clutter from your life is one of the fastest ways to increase the inflow of new positive energy. At the same time, you also want to create physical space for your soon-to-arrive beloved.  Make sure to clear some space in your closet and keep the nightstand on your soulmate’s side of the bed empty so that when they arrive they can fill it with their own personal items.  Remember the old saying “nature abhors a vacuum” – it applies here.  Create space so the Universe can deliver your soulmate into a home that welcomes him or her. (even if you never plan to have your soulmate live with you in your space its essential to do this)
What do I mean by timelines? You have to stop saying you want something right now and putting a concrete reason behind it. For example, “I am 40 years old, and I need to find someone fast if I want kids” or “I am a single mom with two kids, and no man is going to want me.” The truth about manifestation is that you have to be able to get honest with yourself, be open to change, and remain open to seeing how you can heal any old wounds from your subconscious and conscious mind. You have to be open to clearing out old habits, beliefs, patterns from past love experiences, childhood traumas, and memories. Once you are open to this, you begin taking your first step. Your next step is allowing yourself to give up complete control and putting yourself first!
For example, if you’re looking to create more income or manifest a big payday, you need to plan around that expectation. Imagine when someone tells you that they’re coming to visit and they’ll be staying at your house in the guest bedroom. You plan your life in accordance with that expected outcome. You prepare the bedroom, clean the house, wash the sheets, and so on.
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.

11) Blame the Victim:  The only reason that anything bad could ever happen to you is because you were thinking bad thoughts. If someone rear-ends you in a car – 100% your fault. If you get breast cancer – 100% your fault (not genetics). If you get raped or abused – 100% your fault. Children getting killed by terrorists, sick babies in the intensive care unit, victims of floods, hurricanes, natural disasters, the Holocaust – yes, their fault. We all know deep inside that this is ridiculous to even suggest. However, it is a basic, fundamental premise of the LOA. You NEVER attract something you are not thinking about. When anything bad happens to anyone, they are to blame. Don’t feel sorry for anyone who has cancer or a disease or starving children in poverty, they brought it on themselves. What causes obesity? Slow metabolism? No, fat thoughts.  From LOA experts, “Disease cannot live in a body that’s in a healthy emotional state.” (Bob Proctor).  “You cannot catch anything unless you think you can, and thinking you can is inviting it to you with your thought.” (From The Secret). “Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and actions can never produce good results. Suffering is always the effect of wrong thought in some direction.” (James Allen). “If man will think only thoughts of perfect health, he can cause within himself the functioning of perfect health…” (Wallace Wattles). “Every individual creates every aspect of their experiences – we are in complete control of our health throughout our entire lives. There are no accidents.” (Esther Hicks).
The fast-cut montage that begins the Secret video features scenes from a mysterious green tablet - the Emerald Tablet. The Secret book begins with an eight-word excerpt attributed to the Emerald Tablet, circa 3000 BCE: "As above, so below. As within, so without." But after the brief acknowledgement, Byrne and her team of best selling authors and coaches never again mention this Emerald Tablet nor the Hermetic philosophy and teachings associated with it. 
When you feel moved to take action from a place of passion and excitement, not stress, then go ahead and let those actions flow through you. It will seem to be more work to stop yourself — you’ll feel like you’re chickening out and holding back if you stay still. Follow your impulses. But don’t worry about the immediate results of those actions. There may be some twists and turns along the way.
Like anything, if you believe in manifestation, great. If you don't, you don't. But you shouldn't write it off right away. "Manifestation for the non-believers out there is without a doubt something you should try at least once before surrendering the idea altogether," intuitive and tarot card reader, Jennifer Harry, tells Bustle. "The idea that you can materialise a thought, whether it is a positive or negative one, is an easy thing to do."

The power of desire not only tends to arouse added life and power in these faculties upon which it may act, but it also tends to make the mind as a whole more alert and wide-awake along those lines. This is well illustrated by the fact that when we have a strong, continuous desire for information on a certain subject, we always find someone or something that can give us that information. And the reason is that all the faculties of the mind are prompted by the force of this desire to be constantly on the look-out for that information. That the same law will apply in the desire or search for wisdom, new ideas, better plans, better opportunities, more agreeable environments and more ideal companions, is clearly understood. And when we couple this fact with the fact that the power of desire tends to increase the life, the ability, the working capacity and the efficiency of these faculties or forces that can produce what we desire, we must certainly admit that those who have found the secret of using desire have made a great find indeed.  

It is a journey of ‘working on yourself’ so that you can arrive at a place of deeper intimacy as you open your heart, and share your unique gifts with your One. It is, in essence, a journey of transformation and growth where you become One – in consciousness – with the Love that you want to attract. Along this journey, you will find a new loving relationship with the person that you are becoming.
It is important to realize that by connecting with the feeling of space between thoughts, we contact and merge into what we most want to feel: Love. Connecting with love empowers us to change thoughts and feelings and create pure intentions. And this love is found INSIDE us. In our hearts…..between thoughts. On one level, we do choose our thoughts. When we are conscious, we can entertain thoughts, ideas, and feelings that empower and uplift us.
Lately I’ve been teaching my daughter Emily (age 10) how to manifest coins. I do this by turning it into a game. When we’re out walking together, I challenge her to see if she can find more coins than I can. The first time I did this, she was really bad at it. I found several coins during our walk together, often coins that she walked right past without even noticing. Instead of finding coins, she didn’t notice anything. The coins didn’t register within her perceptual reality.
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).
Arielle: One of the most common reasons is that after a few bad relationships some people unconsciously shut down and give up.  They no longer believe the right person is out there for them and while one part of them is saying “YES, I want a relationship,” the other part is saying “NO! I’m afraid to get hurt again.” A big part of manifesting love is preparing yourself by overcoming the emotional wounds and baggage that we all have.
So, what is The Secret? The Secret’s history is rooted in both the book and the movies. The success of the book and movie series really began with the documentary film. In 2006, Rhonda Byrne and the other makers of The Secret Documentary interviewed the world’s most accomplished Law of Attraction teachers, with all of them exploring the question “What is the Law of Attraction?”.
The results of using the Law of Attraction techniques are only limited by your imagination (and by the laws of physics, you’re not going to manifest bird-like flying anytime soon). There are endless things you can attract in your life. From practical things — like “good parking karma” to always guarantee you a great parking spot, to “calls to adventure” that open you up to random invitations to explore the world — you can use the principles behind the Law of Attraction in any way you please.

As a mind-reader, you should try to ATTRACT a different job, since in no way do I have any anger towards anyone with erroneous beliefs. I do feel sorry for you, but this is not anger. This is a free country and free society and you are free to believe anything you desire and free to waste your time as you see fit. You can smoke cigarettes as well. They will harm you and that is your choice. Same as a belief in a LOA.

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."
In this article, I will share with you a step-by-step process I put together for myself several years ago when I made the decision to open my heart and welcome love into my life. In my opinion, these steps make up what I believe is the most comprehensive, practical, spiritually based ‘how to’ advice on how to Manifest Love using the Law of Attraction and the Intelligence of your Heart.
Whether you have been perusing the self-help or personal development sections of the bookstore, been around people invested in personal success, or socialize in spiritual circles, the Secret, otherwise known as the Law of Attraction, is a big topic and has been for years. Some of us know a lot about it, some a little; for some of us it works and for some it “doesn’t”; either way, this article will explore this theory and will touch on some key factors not often shared about it.
If you were to meet your soulmate today, and you chose to live together, would there be room in your life for them?  Okay, think you know what I’m getting at?  If you don’t start making actual time and space to be with your soulmate, you’re sending out a clear message to the Universe that you’re not ready to welcome him or her into your life. If what you truly want is to welcome your One into your life, and you are fully committed, then one of the best ways that you can accelerate this process is by consciously making room for them.
This is the primary purpose in uniting and amplifying your vibrations as One. You are moving and expressing yourself as Divine energy as you talk and teach and catch waves of vibrations from your soul and understand what your soul is saying and that is the power when you speak from the soul. You embody Divine powers using your talents given from the higher soul vibrations as they move up inside and flow thru your soul and you are more connected to the cosmos and see fruits of what you do as One. The divine gifts within the soul evolve specific vibrations flowing from divine within you as one. You have embodied your souls as one and have connection with the Divine and Cosmos. Your talents and gifts are empowered by God to be used as his instruments as TF as you move inside your soul with same vibration. You meditate with your soul. The Soul gets charged as the One Soul in its connection to God in the supernal triangle. You can do miracles when you open up your soul and allow it to have its freedom for it has no boundaries and limitations and wants truth in order to live free and not be under any control except Divine flow. You see purpose as souls as you live as Divine Instruments for God’s use knowing you are Divine Beings.
Hi, I really enjoyed the article. I am Frank, a high school technology teacher and coach who recently completed a Masters Degree in Educational Technology. It took over
 2 and a half years to complete the degree and right from the start, without realizing it, I used the Law of Attraction to manifest what I wanted, as I planned out my course of study. I knew how long the program would take and which classed I need to complete so I wrote out each step on a calendar and followed my plan. Throughout the process, I would sit back from time to time and image what it feels like to have the degree completed; using the new information in my classroom, and enjoying the financial benefits of the advanced degree.
A second error in the “law of attraction” is its emphasis on money and wealth. The Bible has much to say regarding wealth and the management of money and resources. Proverbs 13:11 exclaims, “Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.” Similarly, Proverbs 17:16 proclaims, “Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom?” Our financial success is determined by our decisions, our hard work, and our wise stewardship of what we have. No matter how positive our thoughts and how focused our mind is on wealth, if we have built mountains of debt, the bills will continue to come (Proverbs 22:7). The only impact the secret of “positive thinking” can have on our financial situation is in motivating us to work harder and spend more wisely. The Secret—and its focus on achieving wealth—goes directly against the teachings of the Bible. Solomon, the wisest and richest man in the Bible, observed, “Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless” (Ecclesiastes 5:10). Jesus, who possessed everything, warned us, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15). First Timothy 6:10 could not say it any more clearly, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

This is the game changer. Let go of the tiresome action of trying to achieve success. Focus on your wellbeing and the knowledge that you deserve all the abundance that the universe has to offer, and your riches will flow. They flow not because you took any specific action; they flow because you were willing to allow yourself the great gift of feeling worthy.
We could go back and forth for years about this since your beliefs are based on faith and mine are based on proven effectiveness. You have faith in a system that sometimes seems to work for you and when it doesn't you adapt your thinking to say, this is obviously good for me and that's why I'm attracting it. I would rather make my list of goals based on my values and principles and attain them in an inspired (by a more complete visualization method) in an action-based system where I am in control..
We were then told that, in nature, like attracts like. So, if you constantly focus your thoughts on what you want to manifest, rather that what you want to avoid, those around you whose thoughts are also resonating at the frequency associated with that same positive intention will be attracted to you. And, the net-effect will be the manifestation of all you desire.
Obviously your senses pick up a lot as you go about your day, but you only notice a puny fraction of all that input. In order to manifest money, you need to tune your senses to bring to your attention useful input that you’ve been subconsciously dismissing as irrelevant background noise. This tuning process takes some time, but you can definitely do it.
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.
Some people begin to see things happen immediately, while others take a little more time. The key here is patience and persistence. As soon as doubt or fear start to creep back in, return to Step 2 and address it. If you have lost touch with your clear intention, revert to Step 1. If your belief in the Law of Attraction lags, go back to Step 3. If all else fails, repeat Step 4 every day until it becomes a reality!
I am not exaggerating when I tell you that 3 weeks later I received a phone call that changed my life. A song that I had sent to an advertising agency had been accepted for use in a commercial that would be aired nationally. I would be receiving SAG money for as long as the commercial was on air, which meant I would be paid every time it was played. I was to complete an additional 8 hours of work to finish some audio components for the commercial, but after signing the contract I could be assured that money was heading my way.
If you want to manifest a fortune, always carry around 100 dollars or more in your wallet. Wherever you go, look at the stores around you, and tell yourself "If I wanted to, I could go in there right now and buy that!" but don't actually buy it. Actually spending 100 dollars is a lot less satisfying compared to spending 100 dollars 10, 20, 30 times mentally. This will attract a lot of money towards you if you can imagine what it'd be like.
The Lunar nodes will be changing signs on November 6th/7th just before the next New Moon. They have been in the Leo-Aquarius axis since May 2017 and will be going into the Cancer-Capricorn axis for the following 18 months. I will cover this more in my next article, however, this factor also signifies a shifting of energies along with Jupiter changing signs shortly after this, and Uranus also retrograding back into Aries soon.

We could go back and forth for years about this since your beliefs are based on faith and mine are based on proven effectiveness. You have faith in a system that sometimes seems to work for you and when it doesn't you adapt your thinking to say, this is obviously good for me and that's why I'm attracting it. I would rather make my list of goals based on my values and principles and attain them in an inspired (by a more complete visualization method) in an action-based system where I am in control..


Please be advised in the first place, that it is widely known that we do not manifest from the brain, from the mind alone. Since the brain naturally has a positive and a negative side and that also is nature of thoughts, if our manifestation is successful (and I wish for everyone that it will be) that we are automatically attracting the equal negative side with it.
If you approach money like a power source of its own, then by trying to manifest it, you’re really trying to overpower it, and in such a contest you’ll usually lose. That contest, however, is completely internal — and pretty much insane. It’s like trying to arm wrestle yourself. How can you win? It’s a false reality you’re projecting because you aren’t ready to fully wield your own power yet.
Thank You for anothewr great post.In keeping with your post there is one more law which is a proven scientific law. That is the law of second thermodynamics. Which basically states that our universe is a closed system, that started in perfect order in is slowly decaying. If this law be true LOA cannot possibly be true, as this law alo effects our body. At what point did a ninety year old man, say I think I shall get old. Whether we like it or not, we will all grow old and die.
While everyone is drawn to learning about the Law of Attraction for a subtly different reason, a desire to attract more money is probably one of the most common motivations. It is shortly followed by manifesting love, or a developing a fantastic new career. However, if your motivations are financial, you might well find yourself asking the following: is it really possible to manifest money?
If I can manifest small amounts of money like this, the sky is the limit on what I can do. Thank you so much, Ken, for your life-changing book. I cannot explain the mechanics on how it works, I just know IT WORKS!! In manifesting, there are no limits except what we place on ourselves. If you do not see instant results, do not loose faith. The “wad” of money is just around the corner, or in my case, in plain view in the parking lot ready to be claimed!

This was the most powerful and loving piece of advice that my mother gave me when I was on the brink of going bankrupt in 2009. She told me to just be gentle on myself and take one day at a time. This helped tremendously to keep me focussed on my power in the present moment and not sabotage my vibration with overwhelm by thinking about the uncertainty of my financial future. This is an imperative factor to energy management throughout the manifesting process.
