Law of attraction practiced prior to the 1800s. If you are referring to arcane practices in Babylon and Biblical times that we have little knowledge of, I am aware and have looked at these. If there are some specific and relevant references I would be interested in hearing them. As you believe in a LOA, most of what you hear will be filtered through this lens. As I now do not, most of what I hear will be seen through that lens.
From my experience, I believe it does exist, but maybe not in the form the Secret attests to, but in a form similar to what Jonathon has mentioned above. I do think it is highly probable it exists considering the well documented studies on the effects of prayer and meditation as well as the research of PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research), which basically shows that our intentions can impact outcomes in random events. Considering meditation, prayer and the law of attraction are generally intention based; I expect there is some sort of facility which science has yet to explain which will likely be able to explain the law of attraction. Just because the laws of physics or science cannot explain something, does not mean it does not exist.

Yes, I am familiar with that phrase, although not sure how it applies to this situation. I am the source and you would like me to consider myself? I do not have an employer. Psychology Today provides a forum for articles and discussions. They do not hire me or pay me. They are not the source of this information. I take full responsibility for the content.

Please Visit this Free Mp3 Audio link  for The Law of Attraction in the Thought World by William Walker Atkinson. The Universe is governed by Law - one great Law. Its manifestations are multiform. but viewed from the Ultimate there is but one Law. We speak learnedly of the Law of Gravity, but ignore that equally wonderful manifestation, THE LAW OF ATTRACTION.


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.
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!
Becoming a successful manifestor — whether you want to manifest love, money, a new career, or simply a parking space — requires a certain level of emotional maturity. Great manifestors have learned the art of managing their thoughts and emotions so that even when doubt, fear or other limiting feelings pop up, they are not swept into a spiral of negativity. Developing this kind of mental discipline requires us to make a deliberate choice to focus our attention on what we desire rather than on what we don’t want. For example, whenever I catch myself dwelling in a negative or unpleasant thought or feeling, I say to myself “cancel-cancel,” and I then intentionally create a new vision for myself. Sometimes this simple shift in perception is all I need, and other times I reach into my toolkit of emotional release techniques and dedicate five or ten minutes to working through my mini-issue so that my creative energies stay aligned with the outcome I desire.
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 :)
I was thinking the same. I've never heard a "professional" man of his age, speaking like such a catty little 15 year old girl. If you read all the comments you can see how he speaks down to/mocks every person who disagrees with him, while sarcastically throwing little digs in wherever he can. I came to this article looking for evidence to discredit the LOA. I just can't seem to take anything he wrote seriously because of his unprofessionalism. Very narrsassitic.
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.
If you want to manifest money, you CANNOT believe that money is a power source. Money cannot give you wealth or abundance or happiness. It really can’t give you anything. Money just sits there — all the power comes from you. If you believe that having more money will give you any additional power at all, then you’re actually holding the vibe that says, “I’m too weak to attract money.”
I chose this rating because the information is presented in a direct manner. This book is concise and well presented. I chuckled when I read one star ratings for this book that I just loved. One declared it a pamphlet. Another called it the cliff notes version. Ironically this brevity was one of the reasons I called it a 5 star book. This is not a book that takes 220 pages to say what could be said in 45. The author doesn't put in filler and eventually get to the point. I very much appreciated the direct approach to the substance of this book. I have read many books on this subject. He also adds a few new aspects, including exercises for emotional healing, that I have not seen elsewhere. In keeping with his direct style they are brief. Yes there are a few editorial errors. Not many. But overall this book is a gem. I recommend that you choose this book if you're more interested in the application of manifesting than just reading about it.
Either way, if something WORKS for someone, that’s what they should be doing. If what you’re doing isn’t working, do something else. So for all the people that have found The Secret inspiring, or The Law of Attraction useful, more power to ’em — whatever works! Some people psych themselves up by imagining they are successful CEOs. Some people do it by imagining that angels are smiling on them, or that they are harmonizing the forces of nature, or they are harmonically matching the frequencies of a hypothetical ‘Field’. Maybe the real technology is in the human mind and we can model it however we like. Whatever works!
You don’t have to go out on dates with people you’re not interested in, nor try to do something that goes against your own values. Notice what things or people you are consciously or unconsciously drawn to.  You might be lead into amazing, rewarding, or at the very least a growing experience! Be willing to trust that inner voice and be open to the mystery that comes from there.
Next, spend time each day in silence focused on how it “feels” inside your body to be in the present moment with your beloved. Close your eyes and use your imagination and see them sitting across from you. As you feel the heat radiate off their body what feelings are evoked in your heart? Do you feel joyful? Excited? Relieved? Spend time feeling these feelings (it’s ok to fake it till you make it) knowing and trusting that on some cosmic level you are truly spending time with your beloved. You can even use this time to have a silent conversation with them. It’s important to do this every day. Remember, this exercise is about “feeling” not “seeing” so focus on emotions not literally trying to see them.
The last part of the manifesting process to cultivate gratitude for everything that shows up on the shores of your reality. No matter what it is – good, bad or downright ugly, your role is to say thank you. When you hold the energy of appreciation EVEN BEFORE your intentions have manifested you are purposefully aligning your vibration to allow your desires to flow to fruition with ease and grace.
The key is having clarity, and knowing what it is that you want. Why? So that you can identify it when you see it, feel it and hear it, and – most importantly – so that you won’t be sidetracked into a relationship with a person who is not the highest possibility for you.  A person who is not your soulmate. Remember, there’s no need to settle for less than what you want. It’s like going to a supermarket without a grocery list when you’re feeling very hungry. If you’re anything like me, you may have bought a whole bunch of stuff you did not need but may have forgotten to buy something as basic as milk and sugar, which you really needed.
Joanne I wasn’t going to speak my mind until I just saw 311 by your name above..I woke up at 4:44am and it is the 4th. I already knew my Angels have been around me because I called for them from God last night.Yesterday I was sending a message and was putting my nickname and the numbers were on instead of letters..311. These numbers have been a significance in mylife also in diff ways and just made me decide to go ahead and post this.I am looking forward to what god will send me next to further me to my success with him being a part of it.Thank You for being the angel you are to confirm I am getting to where I need to be with myself and the direction I’m going.

I have a free report for those who want to really go deeper. It describes the most effective law of attraction process I know, and it’s really easy to do. It’s available here: AdvancedLOA.com/Beach. I also work with clients one on one and I offer group coaching programs, too. Please feel free to email me at: Lorna (at) AdvancedLOA.com if there is any way I can help you.


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.

I think what makes success in general is a little bit of attraction and mostly attitude. I do think that life gives you opportunities in subtle ways like syncronicities, but later it’s up to you to take advantage of them. However, I also think that if something is really not meant to be, no matter how much you want it, it won’t come or it’ll come in the wrong form.


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.
Creating a vision board is easy. Go through magazines or search the internet to find images that represent what you want to attract. It doesn’t matter if the images are metaphorical or literal. The important thing is that the images speak to you and connect with your desires. Attach the images to a board and place it in a prominent place where you will look at it every day.
How desire proceeds, and how it secures results in this respect is easily illustrated. We will take, for example, a man who is not earning as much as he feels that he needs. Naturally, he will begin to desire more money; and we will suppose that this desire becomes stronger and stronger until it actually stirs every atom of his being. Now what happens? He is not only arousing a great deal of latent and unused energy, but all of his active energy is becoming more and more alive. But what becomes of all this energy? It goes directly into his moneymaking faculties, and tends to increase decidedly the life, the power, the capacity and the efficiency of those faculties. There is in every mind a certain group of faculties that is made by nature for financial purposes. In some minds these faculties are small and sluggish, while in other minds they are large and active. And that the latter kind should be able to make more money and accumulate things in a greater measure is quite natural.
Energy of soul so strong and powerful and intense. Feels fear deep inside and wants to run away from feelings and try to cut contact off. The man runs in fear of love for he is not use to vibration with soul. Has internal conflict that drives him crazy for he doesnt understand soul love. He only understands what he can touch in physical and from his heart. He has never been exposed to soul love. Fear of the male is about the magical power of love and fear of the unknown and he thinks of running because he has to face the unknown. He needs space in his man cave to process. He fears change and loosing what he has built in in material world of life and what they possess in letting go or what doing now.. Needs to understand they have to have peace and love inside soul for nothing else matters. When he begins to live from the heart, self and soul with no fear then knows in heart that everything is o.k and is ordained by God.. He reacts in a different way from the soul and knows is is connected to pure Divine love and how to connect from heart and soul into Soul Love. He is calm in his soul with vibration of peace as he accepts the truth of this union. Real man listens to obey his soul and as he listens to intuition, it leads him from his heart what he needs to do to embrace this divine soul love union in this magical part of the partnership of magical love and exhange with twin. Has power to say, “I Love You” in front of eyes to twin for it is a prerequisite which allows soul relationship to flow and increase love at higher levels and is being his true self. He has embraced SOUL LOVE when uses this dignity to come out and not be afraid and share feelings and not run and hide them. Steps into real power next to his beloved he loves unconditionally. It is part of a Divine shift and process of evolution with your twin. Acceptance, will wake up refreshed and happy and weight taken off you. It comes in to clear your consciousness for everything to be o.k when you make shift. When you open to truth dont have to hide. Can say what have to say. Wanting twin for sex or lust is not soul love

But, as stated before, and it cannot be repeated too often, the desire must be persistent and strong, as strong as all the life and soul we possess. In other words, we must wish hard enough, and we wish hard enough when our desires are sufficiently full and deep and strong to thoroughly arouse those faculties that have the natural ability to fulfill those desires. Many desires are only strong enough to arouse their corresponding faculties to a slight degree -- not enough to increase the activity or working capacity of these faculties, while most desires are too weak to arouse any force or faculty in the least. The act of wishing hard enough, however, does not imply hard mental work. If you make hard work of your wishing, you will use up your energy instead of turning it into those channels where it can be applied to good account. It is depth of desire and fullness of desire combined in an action that is directed continuously upon the one thing desired that constitutes true desire. To wish hard enough is simply to wish for all that you want with all that is in you. But we cannot wish with all that is in us unless our wish is subconscious as well as conscious because the subconscious is a part of us – the larger part of us.
I have gathered some of the most potent tips to create your reality that I know of. The Secret and the Law of Attraction teach us to visualize and feel our goals. This is a start, but if we really want to manifest more of our desires, more wealth, better and more conscious relationships, and all the goals in our heart that make us want to celebrate life, we need to relinquish EVERYTHING which does not serve us and step into a realm of true magic where our attraction power is natural and effortless.
Develop a belief in what I call the “reverse paradigm shift”. In other words, go for it before you have all the answers. Those so called negative energies (known as cognitive dissonance) are actually the magical seeds of creation and unlimited possibilities. Your destiny and your abundance will always be preceded by confusion and uncertainty. Ask anyone who’s been on the journey.

The Law of Attraction is a deep subject and you seem to only have a very superficial understanding of it paired with a closed mind. The reason most people aren't excellent at it is that most people have very deep seated beliefs about limits and have a lot of fearful thoughts that they pick up from society. Even babies pick up and mimic the negative moods of those around them.


Step 3: It’s time to let the universe know you’re truly ready to manifest your soulmate. Simply coming into a more positive vibrational alignment can certainly help you find love. However, there’s also a specific process you can follow to help you attract love more quickly. These steps will open you up to a soul-deep connection with the specific person you want to find love with:
Yes, really. I haven’t posted fake comments. I don’t need to. I also don’t know any of the people who have commented. All of the comments are 100% real and unsolicited. Why don’t you try the manifesting techniques in this article? Surely you aren’t afraid you might actually manifest money today? If you are, there are articles on this site that can help you overcome your resistance and limiting beliefs around money and the Law of Attraction. Apply the tips in them and then come back and do the techniques listed here. You just might surprise yourself by how well they work.
Imagine for a moment that it’s a beautiful winter morning and there’s fresh, pristine snow on the ground.  You walk up to a hill with your sled, and slide down and take your first trip down to the bottom of the hill.  This first time, your course was pretty random, right?  Then, you walk back up to the top of the hill once more and you sled down again. Okay, the odds are that you’re going to hit at least some of the grooves you created the first time that you went down.
To further simplify things, here is another important note about the law of attraction. The universal term is the law of attraction. This means like attracts like. In simpler terms, what you give out, you receive back. This means your thoughts, emotions, feelings, actions, and beliefs. The key to all of this is awareness. You create your life with your thoughts and your feelings. You are a magnet!
I'm 76. I became interested in mental phenomena when I was 13 and suffering from ADD. ADD didn't exist in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders back then, but I knew something was wrong. I subscribed to Popular Mechanics and Popular Science and was attracted to the various sciences. An article in one of those magazines described mental practices of Eastern religions and the unusual effects their practitioners could exhibit. I tried one of the techniques described and over the next several months my life changed. I weighed 89 lbs. My neck was so skinny my mother wondered how it could hold my head up. I was sickly and stayed in bed most of the day. I couldn't understand my schoolwork and was failing. After practicing this technique, I developed an eidetic memory, got great grades without much study, participated in the Science Fair, Soapbox Derby, and sports, and eventually grew to be 180 lbs. of solid muscle from weight lifting, surfing, and other activities. I had girl friends, went to parties, and had a life that scrawny kid of 13 could never have imagined. I didn't "try" to obtain these things. They simply happened. I was "led" from one thing to another. Opportunities "popped up" from nowhere. I accepted them as a normal part of growing up, but it wasn't normal. My few nerd friends never had them. That experience prompted me to dig deeper. I read all of Erickson's abstracts in college and studied the Akashic Records and other religious systems. I read Emerson, Atkinson, and everyone I could get my hands on. I studied quantum mechanics as far as I could take it over two years. I have books on consciousness and the mind that are over 140 years old. I stopped playing in this game while in the military. When I was discharged, I had nothing - a useless degree in Psychology, no job skills, no anything. I went back to the meditation techniques I learned in high school and my life changed again. I developed my own version of this book, one that worked specifically for me. There are some core elements to this book that I believe form the basis for all systems that purport to produce the effects of the Laws of Attraction. I disagree with the spiritual aspects. My system is mechanical: you do this, you get that. But they are similar enough that this book works. My studies in quantum mechanics only bolstered my confidence in the system. Whether you believe in the Copenhagen Interpretation or the many-worlds interpretation, or some superpositional entity outside of space/time that governs existence, this system works. It is EXTREMELY important to stop believing in things you CAN'T do. Read that again - and again. Belief is a killer. There are other aspects of this book that I support. I started with nothing in 1978 except for these concepts. I retired in 1986 and again in 1990 when a business I started as a hobby developed into a national company - totally free of any financial problems. I have no special abilities. I have no special education. I had no special training. I'm just a guy, but a guy who understands how this works and used my version of it. I don't do this anymore. I've wondered why and I think I have some limiting function that makes it unnecessary. There is nothing I want that I don't have except for one thing: my kids don't understand these concepts and have not interest in learning them. Too bad. The one thing I could never do with these concepts was to influence people directly. I have a theory about that, but enough for now. Why are you reading this? Think about it.

Without going into huge detail, the methods are rather simple. One uses their thoughts and intentions to attract things they want. You can use affirmations, vision boards, words, and so on to set out what you are looking to obtain and you go from there. In more day-to-day applications, one might watch what they say and avoid speaking negatively or indulging in self-deprecating thoughts and instead replace them with more positive and affirming statements and attitudes.


Finally the man was told that they had given up. He was far too powerful. There was nothing they could do to stop him, and they were going to surrender. They invited him to a major world summit and told him they would reveal him to all of humanity so he could share his message. He was brought on board a military transport aircraft. Once airborne, he was shot repeatedly. His body was divided into many different sections, each of which was stored in a super-high-tech energy-shielded container. Jet aircraft rushed up to the plane in sequence and scrambled the containers all over the Earth, as far apart as possible. The contents were then thoroughly and completely destroyed. It was hoped that this would prevent him from being able to regenerate himself.
If you are constantly cranky and upset, then you will be creating more of the same into your experience. It works like a big mirror. You create your vibrational set point, buzz that frequency out into the ether and whatever your dominant energetic patterns are will be drawn to you in the form of things, people and experiences that are in alignment with your vibration set point.
Positive thoughts lead to positive attitudes and positive behaviors. Positive people have more friends, better relationships, better jobs, get more promotions, are healthier and have improved immune systems. This is positive psychology, not a metaphysical phenomenon. It forms the basis of a Principle of Attraction in which Like tends to and often attracts Like...but not always.
The love is not what we try to understand as human love but soul love of spirit as you look into each other’s eyes and feel vibrations resonating from each other’s soul. These vibrations get higher and deeper as you connect in Divine Marriage as TF with smile on your face and happiness in your heart. You begin the journey with your beloved next to you. The heart is the truest part of love. Higher Heart is about service of that Love. The soul is about spirit energy, Your souls are magnetically attracted to each other and nothing will change that reality. It is your mirror. It was divinely orchestrated and nothing you can control in regards to your alignment to your twin to be united as ONE pure Divine Soul. Be appreciative and thankful as well as humble to be reunited in this magical union for you have gotten past your ego nature of I. You are discovering true pure love and communication in TF partnership. You nurture each other with eye contact and caring. The eyes are the windows to the soul. You receive a precious gift of what you truly deserve in your soul and heart. Its about growing up and maturing into higher Divine partnerships with commitment.
I am going to give you the step by step process on how to get started, but don’t forget what I mentioned at the beginning of this article. This is the step by step process to follow once you’ve faced your challenges head-on and committed to carrying out deeper work. Example: If you still have anger and resentment towards an ex that cheated on you, then you have to work through letting this go. You cannot harbor any negative emotions related to love when you are manifesting true love. That’s why I created my Soulful Love workshop in which you can learn how to manifest the right man for you in 6 weeks.
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.

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.
Don't be stagnant. Your ideal partner isn't going to come any faster if you're just sitting around, waiting for them to show up. In fact, Rachel Christie, Law of Attraction Life Coach and Reiki Master, tells Bustle. "When we are vibrating in a space of needing someone or something, this lack energy actually pushes away what we desire." But if you want the universe to be on your side, it's all about trust and allowing it to work its magic.
Develop an unflappable belief. Very likely you haven’t manifested what you desire because deep down you don’t believe that it could be yours. This is absolutely common and there is nothing bad about it. Nevertheless, if you lack the belief that it can be yours then it CANNOT manifest. With your disbelief you block the manifestation. Let’s say that you have a clear vision with strong desire but you don’t believe that it could happen for you. Then what happens is like saying; ‘’Actually, I cannot have it. I don’t believe that it can be mine.” The Universe responds; “so be it”. Why don’t you believe that it can be yours? Dig deep within yourself to find out what you belief is and then work on changing it.
