This worked great for weeks, through one of the most frigid springs on record, and I was starting to think that maybe my father was right, maybe people like Byrne really knew how the world worked. Then the weather warmed up and the air was thick with pollen. My eyes swelled, my nose started pouring, and I ended up with a sinus infection and a bag of medications from the otolaryngologist. Of course, one could say The Secret failed. But look at it this way: When I first started imagining myself drip-free, the universe responded by sending a cold snap! Then because I became so blasé about my sinuses, the universe decided to warm things up again. Surely there is a lesson here for Al Gore.
While the Law of Attraction is getting quite a bit of publicity these days, the concept has been around for centuries and has been known — and used successfully — by great minds throughout history. According to books like The Secret, there’s evidence that the law of attraction was used by Beethoven, Einstein, and even Jesus, but you’ve also used it in your own life whether you’re aware of it or not! This is because the Law of Attraction works whether or not you’re aware of it. The main reason for the current focus on it is that if you’re aware that you're using the Law of Attraction, you can control what you attract into your life.
Well, sure if ya want to fight it, fight away. Look for the color blue, you’ll see it everywhere… even places you have never noticed before. Look for bad things in your life, you’ll find them. However, if you look for positive signs, positive actions, opportunities, they all start to appear. IS it a “Law of Attraction” ? or , is it a tuned awareness ?
If you don’t believe what you’re saying, you’re going to feel the opposite of what you want to attract. If you’re trying to force yourself to feel abundant but you don’t believe you can be or that you already are, you’re going to feel frustrated by your perceived lack and, therefore, call in more lack. Basically, you can’t convince yourself to feel an emotion you don’t actually have, except you can, kind of…
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).
2) Open to the mystery of life. You have no idea when or where that special person could walk into your life. He or she could be someone you already know or met in the past. They could be someone you’ll be meeting on your next business trip or vacation. They could also be your next date’s brother or sister! Your next Facebook friend or Twitter follower. They could be someone you’ll be meeting at a coffee shop or at the train station while you wait for the next train. The key here is to surrender all pre-conceived ideas and drop all your expectations of how, and with whom it is to happen and continue to focus on ‘what’ you want by being fully available and present in each and every moment. Don’t worry about the how! Say ‘Yes’ to your soulmate, and open to the mystery of life!
Check out: http://www.cocreatingourreality.com. I am on day 3 of the 100 day reality challenge. You record yourself for 100 days while you put into practice the universal laws and principles of attraction, deliberate creation, the law of allowing, and the law of action. For what its worth, this experience is helping me become more focused and clear in my intentions. Its creating feelings of abundance, and gratitude. I don’t think things are popping up out of thin air. I think I am now more receptive and open to experiences and hence I am noticing more opportunities to play and achieve my goals with. I realize the world has so much opportunity and enough love, money, and sustenance for everyone. You just have to open yourself up to see it and experience it. Here is to exploring, shifting perceptions, and taking ownership of our experience. It’s all about self-study :)!
You can do this yourself. You can become someone who purposefully creates ripples in the universe. Did you know, everything you do energetically ripples out and affects others? And the ripples then come back to you. This process is fast. Don’t underestimate how possible it is for you to be a true catalyst for change. You can be a magnet for all the positive ripples floating around out there. Like a radio station, you can tune into the good stuff. Starting right now.
And yes there is the part of LOA that suggests there are other methods beyond what we currently use or understand for thoughts to become reality. If the news polls are correct over 70% of Americans believe in the power of prayer to affect reality. Hmmm… In fact several well documented, and repeated experiments proven that prayer is producing degrees of the desired effect.
As for you question on meditation, again-it depends. For new conscious practitioners of the LOA, I usually recommend 10-15 minutes each morning. However, again, it depends on how you are appreciating the meditation. If you are enjoying it and finding it calming and uplifting, by all means go for it! If it comes to feel boring or tedious, feel free to substitute it with another vibration-raising strategy (perhaps listening to good music, or doing yoga or watching inspiring videos). My opinion is simply that spending a little time in the morning getting your vibe up is always time well spent.
But till then I’ll continue to feel disgust towards such people who say they have had spiritual experiences and live on another spiritual plain and then come down and offer a course to us mortal humans that will change our life for just $35 per month. If someone is really enlightened he would spread his message for free because that would be the spiritual thing to do. Can you imagine Buddha or Jesus starting a course on spirituality for $35 per month!
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.
Or, like most people who claim to have found the way to manifest things through the LOA, is it that you truly don't want big things, new things, nice cars, paid off mansions, kids' schools paid for, permanent paid vacations, etc. If you wanted them, you know you could manifest them, you are just not that interested in those things right now. That's the typical response.
I️ meet this man 4 years ago and as soon as I️ saw him a still voice said you will marry him one day. He had gotten married last October but the wife ask for a divorce three weeks after and they have filed for divorce and He and I started txt n and talking in April and grew closer the last 7 months and I️ thought things was going good but after he had gotten sick a month ago and spent 6 days in the hospital he ended it outta the blue . It really sent me for a loop we had talked about the future and made plans and I’ve tried giving him his space because I know he loves me and I’m trying to stay positive that when he gets his head clear he will come back … but all my positive thinking is fading … any advice of what to do ?
If you think that once you have money, you will become stronger, you’re crazy. Absolutely deluded! More likely — if you actually did manifest money from that kind of vibe — you’d grow even weaker. This would be a bad outcome for you, even though it seems like what you want. You’d be a weak-minded, weak-hearted person with more money, and you’d still see the money as more powerful than you, even while it’s in your possession. You’d then become attached to it and afraid of losing it because you’d still mistakenly see it as a power source. It would become a source of security for you, a constantly vulnerable one. The more money you had, the more paranoid you’d become about losing it. This would really mess you up big time. So be very, very glad that you naturally attract less money when you think of money as a power source. If you invite money into your life from that crazy frame of giving away your power, then money will become your Master, and you will be forever its slave. Don’t even go there!
A special note to the person that is reading this right now. Manifestation is real, manifestation is powerful, and I want you to believe that you can manifest love! If you are reading this now, you deserve love. Welcome to the first step to your adventure in how to manifest love! Manifestation has a lot to do with the Law of Attraction. I created this article because I want everyone to experience love. I share this exact process and attention to detail with clients that have been able to manifest their soulmates, and I have manifested true love myself.
Whenever you start feeling bad about your financial situation, see that as a form of feedback. Let it become an immediate trigger to refocus on your desires. Say to yourself, “Okay, obviously I don’t want this. So what do I want instead?” Then think about happier alternatives; allow your mind to go there, and let the resulting new vibe flow through you.
Like all of you, I was skeptical about the idea of The Secret. All I can share is my own experience, I started visualising and practicing positive thinking as soon as I read the book, I also watched the movie. The first week, I was feeling great and felt good about life itself and is more aware about my surroundings. During this time I was also looking for a job. I put a lot of time in being positive everytime I go for interviews, the moment a bad thought pops up I try and brush it away and start focusing on happy thoughts. In the second week, nothin is happening, I was still jobless and havent had much opportunities presented to me. My faith was starting to shake thinking I was doing something wrong.
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.

Your site is amazing! I have been doing a complete life transformation, with so much fear and anxiety and I just kept praying and listening to my inner voice (now to me known as my angle). I kept seeing the number 706 all the time, which is also my birthday in which I also share with over at least 100 people that I have met or talked to in my lifetime. I literally Googled what does 706 mean, and stumbled upon your site. I AM GRATEFUL. I am 40 and have lost both parents in my lifetime, my mother at 7 and my father just three years ago. It’s been rough needless to say because of my lack of coping skills. Through therapy and prayer, I am no longer a walking zombie gluten wide open for controlling, passive aggressive people to manipulate. Thank you for this, thank you for this. I am speechless and confident now more than I have ever been! I am now longer allowing my kindness to be mistaken for stupidity! My spiritual being is now alive! Many blessings to you Joanne.
I didn’t understand can u plz allobrate a little bit i seriously love him i make his n my photo video together i even tell my frnds or any body that I m in a happily in relation ship with him whenever I saw his pics it was so magically & i even forget about my tentions &stress it was just to magical with him plzzzz help i love him a lot plz give some idea what else I can do to make him my soulmate ❤️
Finally, and this is the part most people forget, take action. You can’t say you want $50,000 one month and then expect it to just show up in your bank account if you aren’t working or taking the steps to build your business and sell your products or services. Take action that feels good to you — aligned action, if you will. While you are taking action, the Universe is seeing that you are doing your part to create your intention, and she, in turn, will do her part in bringing your intention to you.
For many this may sound crazy. However, stay with me here. This is a form of visualization. It helps you really tune into the reality of money and send out more effective, coherent signals to the Universe about what you require. Money has a special smell you just don’t find anywhere else, and the trick is to make sure you’re thinking positively when you smell it. You might try saying your affirmation when you smell money and get into the mindset of appreciating the money you know is in your future.
No, Jesse, I do not believe that I know everything. Nor have I ever claimed to even know a billionth of everything. I do not know where we go after we die. As far as I know, I have never died before - although who knows? Apparently, you know the answers to these questions. We are reincarnated? Ok. I guess I'll take your word for it. Just like I'll take your word for it that the LOA exists...and the moon is made of cheese? And Santa?
For the next several nights I tried to pray, but didn’t really know what I was asking for nor did I feel much gratitude. Yes, I wanted to go to someplace “better” and of course I wanted to be happier, but what did that look like? I soon realized the first step in escaping my uninteresting, midwestern existence was having enough money to facilitate leaving. The sure-fire thing to ask for, I thought, was abundance. So at 4:30 AM on one desperate morning I searched my iPhone for abundance prayers. I found one within seconds, tucked away in some cluttered and clunky forum long forgotten by its original moderators.
Living “as if” can be a powerful way to help yourself to manifest love. What this means is that you should try to live every day not as though you’re looking for love but as though you’ve already found it! Embrace self-love and dress as you would if you were spending time with your partner. Try to make space for them in your home. See yourself as a person with a loving soulmate and a bright future, and make plans accordingly.
When you attempt to manifest from a place of selfishness or potential harm to anyone else, you invoke the ego. The ego is always about winning, overpowering, being better than others, accumulating for the sake of feeling superior, achieving adulation or recognition, improving your status, and so on. So the secret is to feel yourself as already being and having what your desire, and to keep the entirety of it all wrapped up in a spirit of love. Always weigh your choices on the scales of love.
Next: I used one of Denise’s awesome techniques from her “Get Rich, Lucky Bitch!” book. It involved pulling out my notebook and writing down ALL my goals. The first thing I wrote down was that I’d like to make $10,000. (Quick side-note: Denise’s book rocks! The techniques she shares are brilliant. I noticed that on the days when I read her book, I somehow magically manifested moolah through channels I’d never accessed before! Yep, just from reading her book. It’s that fierce.)
Thank you for this. My friend, Tim Brownson led me to your blog. There really are a number of people out there who are being, and will be, harmed by The Secret. This is not an alarmist point of view. Rather, it is the view of a psychotherapist and author who has heard from many people about how The Secret has reinforced their self-blame for such things as disease (M.S., cancer), for childhood sexual abuse, for rape, for the death of a child, etc. It is important that we speak out about this. Please consider my perspective at http://www.thesecretantidote.com. And please help me distribute “The Antidote.” (The Secret will cost you, but The Antidote is free — on line and free.) Thanks. Thom Rutledge
You are describing how it is desirable to have the good and bad. Death is good. Aging is good. Disease is good. I don't necessarily disagree with your premise. However, these are not the things that people typically want or desire to fill their lives. When you talk about creation and destruction being natural phenomenon, I agree. But invoking the law of attraction should stop the destruction part if that's what I want to attract. This is irrespective of it being objectively good or bad.
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.
