____Why the law of attraction is wrong and dangerous. I should note that I still get angry emails about this post, primarily from people who've just discovered the Law of Attraction or something like it, and clearly haven't read the post (but have decided to be angry about someone calling their new faith bullshit).
Those of you who want to live a life creating the joyous outcome that you want and desire I will suggest, study the complete works of Abraham-Hicks, read Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill, read the books based the lives of great men like the Buddha, Ghandi, Abraham Lincoln, Einstein, etc.
Wow… I'm guessing you're a regular practitioner of the law of attraction. Well, thats a million dollars question and has not been answered on internet by many people, but at the same time its quite contemporary question amoung the people from Law of attraction lobby.
There is no cosmic energy that magically brings you a ferrari if you think ferrari, but if you deliberatly control your thoughts and make sure they are positive in nature, filled with abundance, you might take actions that result in you getting that ferrari.
But when it comes to the history of the Law of Attraction and the first use of the actual phrase, we would have to look to a chapter entitled 'The Unknowable' in Helen Blatvatsky's book, Isis Unveiled, which was published in 1887. Still, manifesting reality with thought and willpower is an old concept that can be seen throughout history in phrases like mind over matter” and manifesting one's will”.
Examples of positive attraction; wishing you had a person to share your life with - if an opportunity arises where you have a choice that could lead to meeting someone you think you could love, you are more likely to take it. Wishing you made more money - if you are offered a different better paying job you are more likely to take it. Wishing you had a new car - you are more likely to save money knowing that you want a new car more than to spend money on other needless things.
However, this check here is due to how God designed our bodies…not because of our connection with a universal energy force and our negativity or positivity attracting negative or positive physical symptoms. Get into the Law of Attraction business. The Law of Attraction is the New Thought principle.
The principles that operate in the outer universe, discoverable by scientists, are called natural laws. It's actually kind of funny, because if you read these comments, you can see the negativity and see exactly why these people are not getting what they want out of life.
LAW of attraction does work, for me at least. It was used in William Walker Atikinson's 1906 book, Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World. How To Live Life And Love It is a series of lessons in the form of a discussion between a Master and a Student who together explore the nature of reality.
I know what it is like to not love myself, and I thank the Universe that I can easily recognize it in others today and because I have STILL gone on to become the best person I can be, I can show others, through my personal story, that it is possible for them, too.
In spite of all that, I don't think the Law of Attraction is entirely bogus. "In fact, there is no law of attraction” in quantum physics." <- Maybe yes, maybe no. For me, The Secret delivers a powerful message beyond simply asking the universe for things and then manifesting them.
