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!
The law of attraction (LOA) is the belief that the universe creates and provides for you that which your thoughts are focused on. It is believed by many to be a universal law by which “Like Always Attracts like.” The results of positive thoughts are always positive consequences. The same holds true for negative thoughts always leading to bad outcomes. But the LOA is much more than generalizations; thinking about red Lamborghinis will bring you red Lamborghinis – always. To the believers, questioning the validity of the LOA is akin to heresy and blasphemy; it creates religious fervor. To the uninitiated, it may seem silly to discuss even the possibility that such a law could exist.
As someone who is consciously focused on manifesting your soulmate, you too must recognize the powerful influence your thoughts and feelings have on your point of attraction, and do your best to keep them positive. I know; the process of magnetizing your soulmate can get discouraging at times. But if you’re approaching it from the mindset of “it’s been a year and it still hasn’t happened,” you’re living in the reality of what’s missing. The universe simply can’t add more love to your life when you’re focused on the love you don’t have. Like the old tale of the farmer pulling up the newly planted seed to search for evidence of growth, the very act of “searching” evokes a feeling of desperation that blocks the natural flow of love. But if you can shift your focus to magnetizing your soulmate rather than “looking” for him or her; and if you can adjust your emotional state from impatience to savoring the waiting, love will blossom in its own time, and in colors and fragrances that will both surprise and delight you.
6) Use this time to grow in your ability to be more patient, more loving, more giving, more forgiving and more gentle and kind to yourself. Get your ducks in a row, explore new hobbies and interests and keep on growing your current friendships. Continue to work on all your mental and emotional blocks to love and, most importantly, continue to have faith that he or she is out there and that you can’t miss each other.
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.
It all begins with putting the right messages out there into the world. Lots of people think that creating a vision board is enough, or trying to hustle to make things happen is the answer. The reality is, that manifesting something is a subtle energy. It’s about assuming the experience of what it is you desire before the reality even comes into form.

Focus as often as you can on what you do want rather than on what you don't want. For example, if you are angry or upset about a war/conflict that has been going on, do your best to be 'pro-peace' rather than 'anti-war' - focus on the peace, and the kinds of solutions that you would like to see, instead of whatever it is that you do not like about the situation.
Stop looking at the horizons in front of you and feeling overwhelmed. Look at the horizon behind you. It’s just as far and infinite. Think about how far you’ve travelled already. And, allow yourself a small tear of pride. Give yourself a pat on the back for the efforts you’ve made, the roads you’ve travelled. The universe thanks you for being part of this amazing story we’re all creating together.
So if you struggle with going after your dreams because you don’t feel like you are good enough, ask yourself, “what limiting belief holds me to this type of thinking?” You could easily believe that you shouldn’t be a millionaire, since no one in your family has done it. Your family might look down on people who are wealthy, and you choose poverty so they won’t treat you differently. Maybe you fear being in a relationship because you believe that you’ll always get hurt. And you might find yourself purposefully ruining good relationships due to that very belief.
Finding a romantic relationship is so much more than just finding someone who ticks the superficial boxes (like tall, dark and handsome). It’s important to get clear about your own expectations for your romantic relationships for two reasons. The first is you you’ll need to recognize it when you see it. The second is that not just anyone can make you happy!
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 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.
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!
If it is your burning desire to become a professional basketball player, ask yourself how natural it feels to you to be on the court, competing at the professional level. If this feels unnatural to you, you may eventually, with persistence, achieve this wish fulfilled, but only until you have become so aligned with that experience that it feels completely natural to dunk a basketball and sink a free-throw.
The basic rule of the Law Of Attraction: Like Attracts Like. So how are you going to attract money if you have a mindset of a poor person? Acting wealthy doesn’t mean that you have to spend a lot of money (that you don’t have at this point). It just means that you can allow yourself to window shop for expensive things, plan amazing holidays, treat yourself to small luxury things every once in awhile.
Excellent question. I do not believe so at all as I see many parallels between traditional religious views and the Law of Attraction. My personal view is that God creates through us…and it is our connection to God (or the universe/spirit guides/angels/etc) that allows creation to flow easily and pleasantly. In my opinion, our connection is evidence through our feelings, and the better we feel, the more connected we are.
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.
"There are a variety of effective ways to build your energy to manifest money. I have used a combination of things at various times over the years, all of which have worked for different reasons. However, through these experiences, I have clearly found the small nuances that consistently make the Law of Attraction work. It is these small nuggets of truth that I intend to pass along to you within this program as well as the larger variety of energetic ways that invoke the Law of Attraction so you have a wide “arsenal” of techniques to experiment with and find which ones work best for you.
I am a firm believer that nothing in your life changes until your mindset does. This book has 5 main tips that are like the sparknotes of how to attract more money. Now I know that most people run away from the idea that attraction makes sense, that you think of what you want and god or the universe or whatever brings you what you want. But the way I see it, training your mind to look for opportunities is the way that the law of attraction really works. Anyhow, this book contains good advice on thinking of money as just a tool, a means to an end, and then doing visualization to get more of it. it works, i know :)
We have so many children growing up in single-parent families, which, must be said, is of course very tough on the parent and worse on the child, and this does not tend to help create a well-adjusted person. On the other hand, you can also grow up in a family with two, married parents, who parent in a way that is too strict, or with lots of verbal abuse (or worse) and this also causes deep traumas. It’s all about the quality of parenting, and the effort and knowledge that has been put into it.
When a person is desperate for change an easy, quick, short read like this book is helpful! I have been into the LOA material for over 20 years and now have time to observe what material can help busy, good, hard-working individuals enhance their lives for the rest of their lives. As a retired school librarian and guidance counselor I have opportunity to refer material like this book! This author has written so most people can read it (in the bathroom library) understand it and have better things come into their lives!
Life can be very challenging for most of us. You’re going to have good days, and you’re going to have not so good days. In fact, many things are going to be out of your control and it’s great to recognize that you’re not always going to be on the top of your game. Therefore, you need to have some sort of support system in your life so that you can show up fully, especially once you meet your Soulmate. Why? Because bringing all of life’s challenges into one relationship, especially with your romantic partner, will place a very heavy burden on your relationship, not to mention draining the sexual and creative energy from it. You cannot have that! You need to enlist the support of others and create your own group of amazing, challenging, and supportive friends.
3) The Third List: Your Gifts. The third list is, in my opinion, the most important one. Your soul mate will not be coming into your life to rescue you, make you happy, or save your life. A soul mate is a friend and partner with whom you’ll be sharing your life. Someone who will love, nurture and support you while you love, nurture and support them. Someone who understands the power and beauty of a true soulmate union and will hold the space for love, even when you can’t.
When you read about the Law of Attraction, it can sometimes feel like it will take months or years to manifest anything you desire. However, experts advise that if you carefully work your way through four distinct steps, it’s possible to get results a lot more quickly. In fact, if you are wondering how to manifest anything in simply 24 hours, you may only need 5 steps.
