The Law of Attraction Really Works!!

28 replies
Jim Carey and Oprah tell us the power of visualization and intention aka the law of attraction. These extremely successful people are people that used the law of attraction in their lives and we can too!

  • Our mastermind group tested lots of variations on the classical LOA (Law of Attraction). Yes, whatever the power is, it truly works. My personal record is $1.38 million in under 24 hours (notice of being placed in someone's will for real estate in that amount). Yes, it is a freaky thing, and it works wonders.

  • I love The Secret and the Law of Attraction! I can't even begin to explain how it has changed my life. I am happier, healthier, and I can't complain about my financial status. It's worth looking into, and so many people who have become successful have also recommended it.

      the Mind, Is what the brain does. no more, no less.

      LOA is in our imagination, so when we can claim "results", we then believe there's a connection.

      no more, no less.

        Kirby --- you're all over the place with this LoA stuff :-).

        There are things that happen that people claim is law of attraction and yet, those things would have happened no matter what thoughts had run through their mind. Those are real coincidences (yep, coincidences are real).

        There are other things, however, that cannot be explained away so easily. These are things that happen specifically as a result of a shift made in a person's thinking. You can tell the difference, because it is often something that you otherwise would never have focused on, paid attention to, or done anything about. And yet, because of a conscious choice, you noticed this thing and you took some action on it -- and got a result that you probably could not have expected.

        That is sometimes called a "happy coincidence" or synchronicity or serendipity. Whatever you call it, this is not a coincidence as described above. It is the result of action taken in the direction of an unexpected, but related opportunity.

        The litmus test is this...is the thing that happened something totally random that has no relation to a specific intention you set? That's coincidence. If, however, you set an intention, focus on what it would look like and feel like once you have achieved your intention -- and then an unexpected opportunity shows up that provides something you desire --- that is synchronicity or what some refer to as LoA.

        And, if you remember from my previous post, LoA is not about getting stuff. So the other part of the litmus test is that this event really had nothing to do with getting something. In other words, if a person is living their passion and providing value in every aspect of their life, the things that they want come about naturally (they didn't attract anything out of thin air -- rather, they went down a path that led them to things that were an important part of the life they want to live).

        Does that make sense? You can't "use law of attraction". LoA, at the simplest level, is just a brain mechanism that notices things that would otherwise be filtered out of your consciousness. Why did this mechanism suddenly choose not to filter out this new piece of information? Because you specifically set an intention that told your brain that this type of information was important.

        I'm sure you've heard of the phenomenon where you buy a new car and suddenly you start seeing that car everywhere? Of course, those other cars had been there all along, you just didn't pay any attention to them. The part of the brain that is responsible for that is the same part of the brain that works with LoA. It's not woo-woo or anything like that. It's all rather scientific and logical. Everyone already has LoA happening to them -- it's just happening on auto-pilot instead of you steering it in a certain direction. Hopefully that helps.

        Ummm...no. :-). Would you really set that as an intention in your life? Would that really have anything to do with your ideal life, in which you are adding value to society? Doesn't seem likely, right?

        A better question...what kind of life would you be living if that was something that showed up for you? That's scary.

        The very critical point again is that LoA is not a "get stuff" mechanism. Your question is so far into "getting something", that it really has no basis in reality. You can't "use LoA" to get anything. If all you're interested in is "getting stuff", then you're already on the wrong path.

        You have to come from a place where you have a definite purpose in your life that is so significant that it motivates you every day. It is something that gives you joy and gratitude and also helps many people in the process. As you're going down the path of that lifestyle, that is when things begin to happen as a side-effect of who you are and how you live your life.

        Michael Jordan didn't get picked up as a spokesperson by Nike and Hanes because he had a thought something like "It would be really cool if Nike and Hanes picked me up as a spokesperson and paid me huge sums of money." Not at all, right? It was because of who he was and the path he was on. It was a by-product of the life that he was living.

        If you would like to discuss something that is serious in relation to what I posted, I'd be glad to have that conversation with you.

          No, not at all. Just funny.:-)

          Really? What was that?

          Curious what you thought about the rest of the post. Does it still seem outside of what is believable for you?

          As I said before, Personal Development 2.0 -- changing thoughts and emotions in such a way that your brain notices things that it otherwise would not have. Followed by action that may or may not be hard (and even if other people perceive it as hard, it will not seem hard to you because of the joy you get from doing it). With the result being something that comes about in an unexpected way, and yet being exactly what you want as you live a life of your choosing.

          Very plausible. Very realistic. And, by the way, if someone's life is not the way they want it and everything is out of control and negative things show up in unexpected ways -- it's exactly the same process, except the person is programming their brain to recognize negative things and then taking actions that are consistent with that.

          This is something that affects all of us. We just don't recognize what it is and often don't know how to change it or take advantage of it.

          Hmmm... maybe you are right.
          maybe it's too selfish of a goal??????

          If so, suppose the year is 1957 and I was Mao Tse-tung,

          Could I use LOA to attract enough recruits to foment rebellion in imperialist countries?

            Could I use LOA to attract enough recruits to my banner and foment rebellion in my enemies' countries?
            :-) Well, that's something I haven't given a lot of thought to. I suppose we could give it a try and see what happens (lol). Seriously though, let me give you a practical answer on this.

            People can't "use LoA" at all, in the same way that people can't "use gravity". It's just a set of principles that correspond to how you interact with the world.

            Does LoA affect both sides of the equation (the good and the evil)? Certainly it does (Hitler comes to mind).

            But, Hitler didn't "get" anything because he "used LoA". Hitler was a certain type of person who did certain types of things. The stuff that we are aware of about Hitler came about because of who he was as a person. The atrocities and war that came about were by-products of who he was and the actions he was taking.

            You can set any goal for yourself, within reason (the goals could be positive well-intended goals or despotic and evil -- but we're all hoping that most people will choose the positive). What comes out of that depends on who you are as a person and the actions that you take as a result of that.

            Does that make sense? Another question to consider: Why is LoA important?

            It is only important to the extent that you want to design a life worth living. As I mentioned before, LoA is in effect all the time for all people (the same as gravity is). So, for the person who has no interest in designing a better life, they do not need to worry about LoA.
            They can just go about their life doing what they do. Based on cause and effect, those people will get whatever comes about because of who they are and what they do.

            Let me know if that helps.

              or I want to be a millionaire, but want to not work over 8 hours a day

              Do you have have to believe in LOA at an 8 ,9 or 10 (scale from 1-10 to make it work???

              hope you get my point.



              what are the requirements to Personal Development 2.0? a level of committment? stronger the desire, stronger the attraction, at whatever level???

          It would for the 17 year old Thet.

          Both Jimmy Carry and Oprah worked very, very hard with lots of sacrifices for where they are today. They had a mindset where they believed in themselves. If you want to call that LoA, so be it.

          I call it dedication and persistence.

            also, if you think about people that are charismatic,
            that are "comfortable in their own skin",
            and people that are good listeners, people that show confidence, they all tend to Attract.

            so far I have seen no proof or research on the LOA.

            But people have been thinking about the holiday season, and I guess Santa Claus is coming to town, so maybe they have been using the LOA

        It's not belief in LoA that matters. It's belief in yourself. You can't make LoA work. It works all the time. Whatever you are experiencing in your life right now, it's there because of all of the choices, decisions and actions that you've made up to now.

        Critical point (again): LoA has nothing to do with getting stuff. You can't use it. You can only take actions that are in correspondence with it.

        what are the requirements to Personal Development 2.0? a level of commitment? stronger the desire, stronger the attraction, at whatever level???
        These things are not requirements for what I'm talking about (although desire and commitment are beneficial in anyone's life). Here are a few basic requirements:
        • Decide on a definite purpose for your life
        • Describe every aspect of that life and write it down on paper
        • You don't have to know every step in the process, but you should create a "getting started" plan
        • Determine what obstacles (self-limiting beliefs, etc) that may get in the way and work to remove these
        • Take action based on your getting started plan
        • Practice being in the present moment and be aware of everything that goes on around you
        • Look for ideas, opportunities, information, etc that are related to your ideal life
        • Begin living your ideal life to whatever extent is possible
        • Use meditation to promote a calm, focused inner awareness (which helps with being aware in the present moment, which then helps you notice things that are related to what you are trying to achieve)
        • Release any resistance or negative emotions that you have

        All of the stuff above is like tip-of-the iceberg stuff. We are really just looking at bits and pieces of a much larger process. It's rather difficult to get a complete picture when we're only looking at small parts of it.

        Honestly, I don't know if these tid-bits are helpful for you or not. But, if you think about it logically, you can see that the above steps would definitely lead you in the direction of a desired lifestyle. Just one of the many missing pieces of the puzzle are things like having passion for the lifestyle that you are living, providing massive value to people who are part of your life, and so many more things. It's just not possible to put it here in such a small space.

        Does any of this give you a better picture of the concepts I'm referring to?

            so I wonder what is your 2.0?
            That's a great question. Things like goal setting and time management are normal personal development concepts. When you combine that with a system of thinking (logic, critical thinking, and advanced thinking skills) and LoA concepts (such as developing a mastermind group, accurate thinking, living a life that your are passionate about, etc) -- that's Personal Development 2.0.

            love this line. especially "correspondence"
            It's a critical part of the puzzle, because so many people hear about "manifesting" and "getting the car you want" and all this stuff that is related to getting things. And that is not what LoA is about. Getting things happens as a by-product of how a person lives their life.

            a much larger process....awesome. new and improved, state of the art, mind technology for todays (2015) life!!!???
            No, not so much from that perspective -- although I love the marketing reference. Consider for a moment that Napoleon Hill's book Law of Success is 1400 pages. It took that much space to cover only a portion of the concepts I'm referring to. So, when I say "much larger process" I mean the scope, volume, etc. Since I can only describe such a small part of it here, you really are only seeing the fragments.

            not really ( but not from your lack, but my skepticism) , And my curiosity is picked.
            Skepticism is normal, especially in today's world. There is so much junk out there plus people who will do anything to make money. We need a healthy dose of skepticism. The ones who benefit the most are those who are curious and willing to explore, while using skepticism as a microscope to thoroughly analyze what they learn.


            best wishes on what your putting together
            Thank you. I appreciate that. It can be overwhelming at times. We don't need new information in today's world. We need accurate information that is presented in a way that is usable and actionable (something that provides a real result). The problem I find is sifting through the huge amount of information available, organizing it into something useful, and then figuring out what to do with it and how to use it.

            It's a fun, but challenging project :-).

      this works???

      If it worked better every time, with everybody I would think it would be the best seller of all time and everybody would know about it?

      I never heard about this book.

      some thoughts connect to reality. but that is by individual circumstances, and the perception of a cause and effect.

      My car works. Every time it has started up, and in the future, most times it will start up by putting the key in the ignition and rotating it. 99% until the car dies.


      LOA works all the time?
      75% of the time?

      50%???


      if you can't show me evidence, independent of an individual testimony (and the bias on a desired outcome), it's not proof.

      It is a "self-fulfilling prophecy" and believing is seeing

      if anyone wants to see proof my car starts up by putting my key in the ignition, let me know.

      the book- "focus on more Green cars and that's what you'll see"

      that's not an experiment, that is selective attention.

      don't confuse our ability to focus, select what we want to act on, then get it with something magical.

      that makes us no different than past peoples believing inanimate things like trees, temples, and the sky held special powers and could dictate human nature.

    Listen there is some people that will rip in you about the Law of Attraction stuff - and there are others that say it works.

    I'm OBVIOUSLY the latter ;-)

    At the end of the day 'like attracts like' - and when you put that good energy out there, those good positive feelings - you attract it back.

    A great book you would love is The Magic of Believing - it's a great read ;-)
