Does the Law of Attraction Work for You?

115 replies
The thread "The Law of Attraction Does Not Work" for getting what you want has stimulated a lot of very interesting debate, definitions and analysis by a whole bunch of really bright, smart Warriors. But one participant correctly observed that "This thread is sorely lacking some specific stories from all the believers, detailing exactly how it has worked for them."

So we thought we should ask, does anyone out there care to tell us how the Law of Attraction (LOA) has worked or is working for you? That's what this thread is for.

Just to clarify, much of the discussion has swirled around two of the most popular modern-day approaches to the application of LOA for getting what you want: The simplified "Ask - Believe - Receive" as presented in Rhonda Byrne's "The Secret," and the definite, disciplined six steps in Napoleon Hill's studious work, "Think and Grow Rich."

This thread is intended for those who have reached or are reaching any measure of success in getting what they want by seriously applying the principles taught by Hill or any of the many others who maintain that:

  • Like attracts like
  • You are what you think about most of the time
  • You created your current circumstances by the way you think; and you can change them by changing your thought patterns and taking the following steps.

Very generally speaking, the interpretation of those steps says that to set the Law of Attraction into motion for yourself, you must:
  • know yourself, identify your limiting beliefs and get rid of them;
  • define clearly exactly what you want and by when;
  • decide to achieve it;
  • have a burning desire and a definite plan to achieve it;
  • decide what you will sacrifice to get it (basically meaning "whatever it takes");
  • build belief that you will achieve it;
  • visualize yourself already in possession of it;
  • repeatedly affirm (influence the subconscious mind) that you already have it;
  • take action to get it;
  • persevere until you "manifest" your dream as reality.

Success stories anyone?

This should be fun!

    The Law of Attraction does work. The problem is there were to many BS merchants out to make a fast buck with BS videos and books like "The Secret" and similar crapolla.

    As for true stories and successes. They are out there, but only those who have taken the time to grasp the full concept will be open and honest about it...

    I think you have to consider Esther/Jerry Hicks/Abraham along with those other two - in fact, Rhonda Byrne lifted pretty much of Abraham's LOA into The Secret.

    Does "it" work - yes, and yes has done for me - but you "it" isn't what you think it is!!!

      Calm down the OP just asked for actual stories to support LOA theory. I am more irritated by the responses to his post than I am the actual post. Noone has given a success story yet they claim it works. Just sit back observe and read. I have an even stronger opinion after looking at what has been posted, but, I will save that for my private thoughts, (as you should to because what you wrote could get you banned).

        Thanks, Theory Expert, for setting the guy straight. You are a reasonable person with common sense advice and thus a valuable contribution. We are just a couple of folks without an opinion, asking a simple question to get some information, and not looking for a fight. :rolleyes:

    If you don't plan your action and/or not take any actions that moves you towards your goals then you are still not going to succeed no matter how hard you think about success and how positive you really are.

    Action is very important. Some people think that just thinking about a goal will manifest it without much or any action.

      Whether you act or not, that is another question. LOA, would provide you with opportunities, now whether you act upon those opportunities or not is up to you. The essence of LOA is missing from all the replies posted....

      think believe and receive, simple but it wont bear you any results if you have even an atom of a doubt in your mind...never doubt.....because your doubts, stop you from acting, stops your from taking chances....So the truth is if you have no doubts you would most certainly act...and if there are doubts, your actions wont be pure hence you wont get the desired results, since your action would be marred by the doubts in your head!

    If we remove whats acknowledged as general or positive psychology we are left with sacrifice(what for?) and affirmative lies.(this are non positive and don't work). Everything else relates to motivation, confidence, goal setting, visualization, and is more know for its relation to psychology than the law of attraction.

    I'm not trolling. There is already an active 3 page thread discussing the Law of Attraction. What is the point of splitting up the discussion?

    The topic of this thread, "does it work for you" encourages people to just post more praise, and not actually contribute to the discussion. Just look at whats already posted.

      To therazgard: Please, your misinterpretation of the intent of this thread is encouraging more analysis and controversy, which is the very thing you're all weeweed up about and which is the opposite of this thread's intent. If you could possibly take anything for face value you would see that all we asked is if LOA is working for anybody out there. Like, you know, specifics not seen in the other threads you mention. The bullet points are simply a summary of what we understand is being taught.

      You are encouraging people to do what you yourself are doing and complaining about: "not actually contributing to the discussion."

      You've done your bullying, now please leave it alone.

      The other thread is about someone who says LOA doesn't work. That thread is a discussion on why it doesn't work. This thread is about anyone who believes in LOA share their testimony. Although, noone has come forward that is the point of this thread.

      P.S. I wasn't saying you were trolling I was just giving you the rules. You came off harsh and it could get you banned. Just saying.

    The one step "The Secret" and all the other WooWoo stuff left out is to TAKE ACTION. Just sitting around and thinking about what you want and expecting it to show up is a fallacy.

    First you have to have a concrete idea of what you want, be as specific as possible. I tend to NOT focus on money, instead I focus on goals and action steps because that is what is going to get you from point A to point B. Second, take action! Do SOMETHING to get the ball rolling. Then continue to take action. You've got to constantly put yourself in situations for success.

    Earl Nightingale said it best in "The Strangest Secret" about his definition of success,

    "Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal."

    You simply attract whatever you are thinking about. If you're ticked off, you generally stay ticked off. If you believe and work towards making $100/day on the internet, you will... It's just a matter of time.

    We live in a society today of instant gratification. People don't want to have to work to be successful. They just want it, period. You hear of people that have been in Internet Marketing for a week and getting no results and they want to quit. TWO WEEKS?! Get real.

    The Secret, Think & Grow Rich, and As A Man Thinketh is NOTHING new. Set a goal, and WORK towards it.

    I've seen what many would term the law of attraction work in my
    life on numerous occasions; I have also been witness to the
    immense amount of misinformation that has been sold as the so
    called "secret" to manifesting your hearts desires.

    The problem with the Law of attraction is that it's actually the
    law of cause and effect and has much more to do with how the
    mind works.

    When I hear LOA teachers talk about what the "universe" is going
    to give you i cringe a little as the universe isn't giving you
    anything it's actually your mind that's creating the results
    either through insights, ideas, feelings and behaviour; much of
    which can be explained by conventional science and others which
    can't be so easily explained away.

    Over the years I've experimented with a variety of techniques
    such creative visualisation, affirmations, and releasing and
    have experienced amazing results but i don't depend on it as a
    strategy.

    At the heart of what many call the LOA are your beliefs about
    what you are able to be, do or have.

    The main issue that many people have with LOA is that they jump
    on it often because they are desperate, which is the completely
    wrong state of mind to be in to make it work. Also, due to the
    way in which most people are wired mentally, they often don't
    admit this to themselves, which causes them to become a little
    deluded.

    This is not to say that by changing your beliefs and or
    visualising your goals you will not experience fantastic
    results, I believe that you can create amazing things in your
    life by altering your beliefs and mindset yet, too often I see a
    lot guru's failing to share the fundamental steps required to
    create successful change.

    To me the steps to creating what you want are:

    1) Define what you want
    2) Eliminate inner conflict (limiting beliefs)
    3) Take "necessary" action
    4) Expect it

    To me steps 1 & 2 are fundamental to achieving your desired
    outcome, however if you really look at it most people only focus
    on step 3, which is why they struggle, but in the end some do
    actually get results with this strategy

    Many in the LOA community only focus on step 1 and forget about
    the others, this is because they usually focus on feeling good
    and thinking good thoughts, which is incredibly challenging in a
    society based on scarcity and fear.

    The whole subject of the Law of Attraction generates a lot of
    emotion on both sides of the debate, yet this is mostly due to a
    lack of understanding on both sides of what is actually at work
    here.

    Just my 2 cents.

      Well, after reading most of the post I really appreciate "TD'S" Post. He did a good job in giving light to the subject.

      My opinion is positive, although you must believe in more Than LOA the combination of who you are spiritually (not talking religion) and your beliefs manifest the outcome

      I know it works or I would not be the person I am today, mainly because I use to be the most negative person but years ago something happen 'Big' in my life I was given a choice to remain the same or Rise above it. Takes work in being consistant with who you are, and your dreams and desires.

      If you are on the line of should you or shoudn't you believe? BELIEVE, find a principle in the theory you believe and stand on it claiming 'Done". Make sure your eyes are open to see the blessing when it comes!

      Truly,

      DonnieJo

    I am but an early student of ‘Abraham,’ but I can say that I’ve had tiny glimpses of success identifying the “Vortex” that is so strongly talked about. That seems to be the key – the very first step in preparing for attracting things. I’m far from attracting anything substantial, but practicing feeling good just by thinking is a good rub down for the attitude in extended preparation for that.

    I read up about the LOA theories about six years ago, now within that time & what I have experienced & seen. I can honestly SWEAR that this has worked for me time & time again. BUT you have to be 100%SURE you are INLINE with what you are asking for, to make it happen! That's the key!

    My first what I would call life changing experience, that this worked 100% with no doubt! Started when I was spinning spanners in a Ford Dealership & I was over working with cold tools & greasy hands, I was only 20years old.

    So after trying to play around with the LOA for 6 months or so, with what I thought we're merely coincidental & not LOA! I decided to put it to the test on a big scale! So literally told myself I wanted an office type job, with a company car & cell phone (if you live in NZ you know our cell/internet companies rip us off big time), sales incentives for more income & something I enjoyed doing.

    Now I told myself over & over again for a week or two.

    While the same time I was applying for every or any job in sales, from agriculture heavy diesel to light commercial. I got an interview with a company for a sales rep for tractor & machinery parts, I thought would make my career with a company car + bonus'es for reaching targets. Thinking yeah this is me, but unfortunately they declined to give me the position!

    So only being 21 years old, I was seeing "car sales" jobs thinking to myself, they aren't going to higher a young guy with NO sales experience (**** loads of mechanical experiences, my first car i was 13yo & fixing/modifying them ever since for FUN) . Even though I kept telling myself over & over again "office job, company car/cell, big incentives for greater income & passion for my work"

    But I thought f#ckit why not, give it ago so i applied for the car sales job! No word of lie I meet the sales manager & when i mentioned I worked for Ford for four years (if you've worked for Ford you know its like a "brotherhood") he was like I use to be CEO of Ford Credit NZ, so rang my old Dealer principle's & got their opinion on me & few other contacts I meet in the Ford Brotherhood! haha

    Three interviews later, with another manager & owner... BOOM* i got the job at 21years old, Company car (any car on the yard we had over 160 cars in stock) cell phone all paid & a $80k+ salary/commissions package! Myself & my friends & family couldn't believe it! BUT I DID IT!

    After that experience I knew this worked 100%, you just have to fine tune your mindset & then the sky is the limit! You just need to grab it by the balls & stop blaming outside influences, because you are the operator of your own life! *true story*

    Just to let you know, its now been five years since that, & with in that time.. I've used this POWER of the UNIVERSE to buy & sell my OWN houses, worked with a marketing company to raise over half a million dollars for the Australian red cross. Worked for IBM climbing the "corporate" ladder BUT now have a successful internet marketing & networking marketing company, setting up a passive income so I can retire by 30!!

    ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, YOU JUST HAVE TO BELIEVE IT, WORK HARD AND TAKE ACTION!

        Is that it? I sum it up like it's a walk in the park! But you must realise to believe in your self & your actions, creating what some might even call an "over confident" mindset is a huge step! You need to get that deep down gut feeling that I always call "your instincts" & TRUST it without a doubt!

        Then working hard at telling your mind that this is what you want (remember the old saying be careful what you wish for, I can say this is TRUE) & work hard to FEEL the vision to make it happen. Keeping positive is a must, I also find sharing with others & even random acts of kindness to people you may never meet again is a great feeling but also it's that electromagnetic energy you send out, is what you will get back!

        REMEMBER taking action is the key, taking action on any opportunity that you feel "your instincts" are telling you too. It may not seem logical or even practical at the time. But if your gut is telling you to act. THEN act! That's a big step I feel a lot of individuals miss. They're to busy thinking positive & having "vision boards", yeah sure that's great BUT you need to also realise the opportunity's that may be starring you right in the face.

        The one thing I feel I mastered to get where I am today & using the LOA to help become a greater individual is to TRUST your instincts & ACT! Ok sure we get things wrong time to time, BUT I would rather have attempted something & failed then to have lived with a thought of "I wonder what would have happened if I gave that opportunity ago!"

        As a wise men once said, "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new" and also another quote I like "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work" ...and also i like things in threes so "Experience is merely the name men gave to their mistakes!"

    The way we think determines how we feel. How we feel affects our behavior. This is not the power of positive thinking. It is the power associated with functional thinking vs dysfunctional thinking. This is governed by the interaction between nature and nurture. The ability to change the way we think, no matter what our circumstances are is easier when these are good and very hard when things are not so great! The problem with the law of attraction is that it means different things to different people. This is due to a lack of a universally accepted operational definition. But, if I understand it correctly, it directs us to think and behave in a positive way which increases the probability of positive results.

    The problem with the Law of Attraction is that it does not work in all cases. Individuals will not always do what the expert predicts. But, with a large sample size, people will behave in a certain pattern.

    Individuals will not always behave as the Law of Attraction predicts they will. But, as a group, people will behave according to the Law of Attraction.

    So, if you claim the Law of Attraction does not work, you need to;

    Adjust your offer or get a bigger sample working for you.

    The concept of "thoughts become things" is for real, I have personally experienced it many times, whether you call it LOA or something else, the point is you must have a clear precise picture of what you want to achieve before you achieve it.

    Though deep within I now know that LOA works, but the problem is its not practical enough, I couldn't apply it every time with precision. But with my personal experience I can say that it did work for me many times.

    So out of desperation I found a system by a scientist to precisely apply this law, though he doesn't call it LOA but fundamentals are very similar and its beauty lies in the way it designed.

    The system is designed in a way that can help any individual to achieve whatever he wants and get rid of any inner conflict.

    The system is by Stuart lichtman and it is called CT i.e. Cybernetic Transposition.

    Now I am not saying I am rich, because I never used it to get money, I used for other things and most of time I got them provided I did all the steps with sincerity.

    Just dropped in to see how this thing is going and notice it's finally bringing posts that actually answer the question, and in some detail. For instance, Repins shows how he made it all work for him. Meanwhile those who are also offering analysis and opinions with or without answering the question are all trending in the same logical direction: you have to do the work. TD and others nail it. Thank you!

    The Law of Attraction worked on a very very personal level for me.

    In an effort to not bore everyone with the details - my husband and I struggled to have a family for years. We ended up going the IVF route and our first attempt failed. One of the most painful journeys I have ever endured. We realized that we focused so much on the negative and even talked MORE about what we were going to do should this fail (such as move away to an island desolate from children... lol).

    Our strategy changed on the 2nd try. I used images of boy/girl twins (we really wanted to have twins so that we wouldn't have to face this road again) to keep me focused on the positive. We only talked about the excitement of having kids, dreams of what we planned on doing once they arrived. We even explored names before the process even started. We acted as if I was already pregnant.

    And, well.... I now have 3-year old twins: one boy and one girl.

    Yes it works for me. It also works for you and everyone else, whether or not you believe it. The term Law of Attraction is somewhat of a misnomer. Conscious creation better describes what's going on. An understanding of the subtle differences between these two terms might help a lot of people align with the principle of power that is being discussed here and begin to see it work.

    My partner and I have spent years studying this subject, and we've spent the past year creating subliminal subconscious reprogramming tools that create profound transformation and specifically develop one's power of conscious creation.

    The concept is not an easy one for everyone to grasp, and while The Secret sure exposed the idea to a lot of people, I believe it confused the message by simplifying it incorrectly and thus confused a lot of people. I'm going to state what I know here as simply as I can, hopefully in a way that makes for more usable information. It is scientific and experiential knowledge, not belief, so no belief of anyone else will convince me I'm wrong. Thus I'm really not looking for a debate, and I welcome anyone who wants to know more of what I know to contact me. If you have any scientific or experiential knowledge to add to this, I and hopefully others would love to hear it in this thread.

    There is one truth, and it is infinite. Its primary expression is love. It is Natural Law. It is what is true, what is possible. Everything else is a representation or image of the truth; It is not itself true; It is therefore fiction (though not necessarily false).

    There is one consciousness. Whether you call it God or not is up to you. I use the terms Source, Source Field, Consciousness and God almost interchangeably. You and I and the stray cats running around the Rock of Gibraltar are all a part of this consciousness. So is the rock.

    The rock is the surprising part, right? The rock may not be conscious, but it is a part of consciousness nonetheless. The reason is that everything is energy directed by thought. Everything is a wave. I need to stop here and give props to fellow warrior eshapard for this quote from the thread The Law of Attraction Does Not Work:

    "You might as well say that speech is a wave and all matter has wave-like properties, therefore this means that if you say the right words, magical unicorns will sing you to sleep and bring you clean underwear from Atlantis."

    Thanks eshapard! Great stuff. Cracked me up.

    Quantum physics has shown us that matter is illusory. Particles are not solid matter, but rather waves that behave like particles once they are observed. Particles are neither solid nor stable, and they are dependent upon an observer. Thus there is no such thing as solid matter. There are only waves of energy that behave differently when we observe them.

    Time has similarly been misunderstood. The scientific evidence we possess regarding time shows us we know essentially nothing of the nature of time. We do not understand time. Without going into the complex details, suffice it to say that time is as misunderstood today as matter was before quantum mechanics shed some light on it. Our concept of time is a convenient construct, nothing more.

    Profound spiritual practices and experiences such as deep meditation, breathwork, ayahuasca ceremonies, 5MeO-dmt spirit journeys and near death experiences reveal the same essential things to everyone who has these experiences at the deepest level. That this is a fact indicates that what they learn is true, not imagined. Unless you are prepared to argue that all people who have these experiences are sharing the same dream or hallucination, it is pretty clear that what they see and learn is the truth of the nature of things. I have had all these experiences. They can be most profound. They reveal the nature of the universe. Especially 5MeO-dmt, which is pure truth. Pure consciousness.

    Such experiences reveal some very interesting truths. 1)The Source Field is primordial energy, pure consciousness, infinite potential. Matter, space and time are constructs (the maya, an illusion of sorts, a projection). 2)We are all one. Individuality is a construct just like matter, space and time. 3)Primordial energy is transformed into all things that make up the material realm. 4)Humans are transformers. Our role is that of the creator aspect of God. We are the manifestor, as one, I and I. We're a transmitting utility between the realm of primordial energy and the material realm. We create the universe as we go with our thoughts and observations.

    We experience exactly what we (as one) manifest. We are 100% responsible and must be 100% accountable, else we lay blame instead of accepting responsibility. We create our experience by our intentions. The only accurate measure of our intentions is our results, which are a very accurate measure. Our results are no more and no less than equal to our intentions. We can see exactly what we intended by looking at what we have.

    So, creation occurs in consciousness. And whether we know it or not, whether we choose to believe it or not, and whether we learn to do it powerfully or not, we are creating what we get. If you don't believe this statement, no offense, it's because you don't know the truth. And that's OK. But if you know or believe or even just want what I'm saying to be true, then we need to look at the ego.

    Individuality. The ego. The central experiment of the material realm is commerce. We've made material into materialism, and we've built a global economy based on individuality. The haves and the have-nots. And who are we if we don't keep up with the Joneses? We've (almost) convinced ourselves that consumerism is what we live and work for. And many of the people discovering the Law of Attraction are trying to use it to attract material wealth and goods so they can be more prosperous consumers than others. Then they wonder why they haven't yet gotten the Bentley that's been on their vision board for three years.

    Individuality is not true. It's a construct, an illusory fiction. Conscious creation is true, not a construct. If you're trying to use the truth of creation to further separate the fictional gap between individuals, it will not work reliably. What does work is shifting your interest from competitiveness to abundance. The former assumes fictional players, the latter is Natural Law.

    Scarcity is a bold faced lie. It is the very essence of capitalism (all value is placed on scarcity) and the reason capitalism cannot and will not survive its current climax run. Communism had the same problem, by the way. When we manifest abundance, that's what comes. The more people realize their power of conscious creation, the more everyone enjoys abundance. And that's well under way, but there is presently a split population. There are those stuck in the rut of capitalism and heading for the ditch, and there are those who have freed themselves of the limiting beliefs deeply held in their subconscious minds to realize abundance in all ways (including but not limited to monetary wealth). The transition starts with awareness.

    I personally had way too many 'coincidences' for me to doubt the law of attraction. I was once so against it, as some of the implications seemed proposterous, but now I am certain it is very real. As others have said, the problem is the way it is taught and marketed.

    And despite the naysayers, simply taking action isn't enough, especially if it's the wrong action, or if the action was taken with an improper attitude.

    I've also had some pretty phenomenal things happen in my life without 'working hard', like getting paid $1000 for a gig which was supposed to pay me $700. I also went on a cruise fully paid for back in January, and I received a bit under $10,000 at a time when I was in a dire financial circumstance (owed $5000, had to pay 2 months rent, $200 in bills, owed a friend $500 and had to buy an international flight). This happened at a time when I had lost my job.

    Now if I explain what happened, someone could probably assume, "those are not manifestations, you just saw opportunities or you were lucky". Well, that in my mind is exactly the same as a manifestation, especially since I set an intention to receive that much 7 months before it happened.

    Had I stayed stuck in negativity, I wouldn't have seen a way out. For a full month prior to that huge money 'manifestation', I was VERY careful to avoid or cut out certain negative thoughts and frequently entertained positive ones. And it gradually conditioned my mind to stay relaxed, which was critically important for me to be able to see the opportunity. BTW, this article claims that lucky people are more relaxed:

    BBC NEWS | UK | Magazine | The loser's guide to getting lucky

    This may interest you as well:

    Be lucky - it's an easy skill to learn - Telegraph

    Both articles suggest that lucky people literally think and behave differently from unlucky people.

    The law of attraction version on "The Secret" was waaaay too simplified. It doesn't tell the whole story. I actually studied LOA and got better understandings after following Bruce Muzik's newsletters (in relaxandattract.com) that LOA is not about "Universe will get you what you want", but it will bring you "opportunity to act upon". i.e. the Universe (God, Intelligent Source, etc) will bring you the net, not the fish. Other books that helped me a lot are those by Joe Vitale, i.e. Attractor Factor.

    Regardless, I've had so much strange "coincidences" in my life that it's impossible that LOA didn't exist....from increasing GPA, able to travel abroad in a prestigious symposium without paying anything, getting the books I've badly wanted. But yeah, I had to throw the net to get the fishes.

    What worked best for me all the time are good prayers. No amount of visualizations can be manifested without it -- but that's just me. From time to time, my LOA attempt fails if my connection with God is off.

    How can you not attract something positive if your mind is in there? You might not get what you want, but you're going to get something - you'll learn something, you'll have an experience, you might have a challenge that will teach you something, etc. But most importantly, you have taken some action and one action is better than no action.

    Conversely, if you are approaching something in a negative manner, the chances of whatever you do "being successful" is probably not going to happen as you've started the action in a bad spot.

    Viramara is also right - at the end of the day, something bigger than yourself is going to decide exactly what is needed for you.

    Yes it works.
    2 years ago I always wanted a sport car BMW but have not enough money to buy one new one. But I said, think, and was sure to get a BMW soon or later 100% sure, I was acting like I will have it even I don't have the money to buy!
    What happen was incredible! I have a bank account that I had since was a child and never thought about and were my parents put money every months or so until I get a job. So they never talk about this account or I might have forgotten.
    So I went to my bank and ask for credit information for buying a new car not BMW but low budget one when suddenly the bank employer told me that I have an account there with enough cash to buy a BMW.

    That is just one incredible case but I have experience many since.

    I highly recommend a book that changed my life:

    "Life by Design", by Tom Ferry (not to be confused with Tim Ferriss of "The Four-Hour Work Week" fame.]

    He touches on "the Law of Attraction" and asks clients 'how's that working for you?'

    In the end, I believe that like does attract like -- you've just gotta be willing to work hard to get it -- at least initially.

    And as the old saying goes ... doing something you love and you'll never work a day in your life!

    The OP asked if it was working for anyone, and the answer is yes, it is working for every one of us 24/7/365 - always has and always will. Where you are right now in life, your relationships, financial status, occupation, health and interests, are all because that is what you have attracted, even if you aren't aware of it. The hard part is being aware that you are attracting everything, and then increasing what you do like and decreasing what you don't like.

      Absolutely. And you can prove it to yourself, but only when you become fully accountable for everything. Once you accept full responsibility for everything in your world, you will then--and only then--easily see the direct correlation between your thoughts and what you get. Once you practice careful intention and see what comes of it, the question disappears, and the debate becomes mundane. It's simply the way things work, and there's no denying it once you're fully aware.

      Your results in life are simply a display of the intentions set by the deeply held belief systems of your subconscious mind.

        We're all great spirits Joe. That's precisely the point. Some are just mired in what Einstein calls hereditary prejudices. I call them limiting beliefs, and they cause stagnation at the level of base consciousness. The Masons refer to base consciousness as the chess board. There are black and white squares (symbolic of right and wrong) on a two dimensional plane (symbolic of minimal understanding), and guess which pieces can't move dynamically. What pieces only plod forward one step at a time no matter if the square is black or white? Is that the role you're determined to play? The pawn? Or would you like to learn to be the king or queen? These are the roles you're able (and intended!) to play if you can only escape your limiting beliefs and allow yourself the wisdom to be sovereign.

            I'm not. Are you? The very point is that it is my game. I'm the creator. And I'll move any piece I like.

            If you understand the concept of being the chess master, then why don't you apply it in your life? You're only manipulated to the extent you don't take full accountability and direct the game yourself as chess master/creator. The pieces on the board are avatars you can play if you know how they move, and they're essential to your success in the game, but they're not you--unless you allow yourself to be trapped on the board (in base consciousness). Trapped in base consciousness is where a shocking majority of people are. They think they're the pawn, or at least they're willing to play the pawn exclusively and limit themselves to pawn abilities.

            You are not the all caps JOE MOBLEY ens legis public trust estate person created by the bond and certificate issued at birth and the subsequent Social Security application (if a US citizen, similar elsewhere). That's a commercial fiction. It is a pawn. You're also not the human body that people call Joe Mobley. That may be a pawn or knight, depending on your awareness... or king or queen if you play it well. You are Spirit, and these other persons are entities you move within your domain to further your goals, like pieces on the chess board.

            Yes, these persons/chess pieces must move according to certain rules. The only thing is, you and 95% of the population have been taught to believe a set of rules that aren't complete. About 5% of the population plays the game with a much greater understanding of the rules than the other 95%.

              The problem with the "Law of Attraction" is that it sounds like magic.

              And making something sound like "magic" means that it's something that inherently cannot be understood, since "magic" is a departure from the possible rather than an explanation of the possible.

              Thinking of the "Law of Attraction" in a more normal, common-sense based manner makes it easier to see that it is "true", and how it works.

              The "Law of Attraction" says that, if you think a certain way, then nature will react to you in that way. Just think about it logically: if you decided to become happier, and as such smiled more and got along better with others, doesn't it naturally follow that others will treat you better?

              If you yearn for success, and you spend your time trying to start a business or learn more about business, doesn't it naturally follow that, because you spend more time doing this, you're more likely to be successful?

              It's not magic; it's just common sense. Act in the way you want people to respond to you; and spend time doing things you'd like to be successful at. That's that "naturalistic" explanation to the magical "Law of Attraction"

    There are a few examples I have of actively using the Law of Attraction... a few years back I wanted to enter a really challenging ultra race I thought would be beyond my abilities to complete. I wrote out a description of me completing it in detail and read it regularly. I set up a training plan, visualized myself achieving it and I did complete it.

    A few years ago I was living with my friend in her spare room, and was desperate to move into my own place, but my credit rating was so bad nobody would touch me. I went to see a property for rent which I loved- it was just big enough for me, and looked out over the canal. Several people were looking at the same time and properties for rent in this area were like gold dust. I put in a rental application, along with somebody else, and wrote down a description of me living there. Everyday I visualized myself living in the property, cooking in the kitchen, looking out over the canal... and guess what- I am living there now! The landlord chose my application!

    Trouble is, you need to know it works. If you think it doesn't work, you will be right. If you doubt it will work, you will sabotage it.

    I have a close friend who claims to be someone who fights for justice. He's an activist. He's always in the middle of some crisis. He's also a political activist who will be happy to tell you exactly what's wrong, in great detail, with the other side. He's extremely passionate about these things. They bring he and his family lots of stress. He also seems to have more of his share of big problems that pop up in his life.

    For example, after being a Boy Scout advisor for nearly 25 years he had a major problem with them and was asked to hang up his merit badges for good. But that's not all. There has never been a time since I've known him (20 years) where he wasn't up to his eyeballs in some silly drama, whether he found it or it found him.

    This is the law of attraction at work. Since he's so passionate about fixing everything and fighting the good fight, he attracts lots of things that need fixing and fighting. They mysteriously find him. Weird, huh? His wife has threatened to leave him many times as she’s always stressed over the current crusade. She calls him a drama queen. Actually, that's the nicest thing she calls him.

    I was once married to a woman who had an aunt. She was one of the happiest people I ever met. She never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She always looked to the bright side. She never gossiped or got involved in any off color discussions. She'd do anything for you. People in her family thought she was a dingbat. She was a seamstress.

    When she died something very interesting came to light. She was a multi millionaire. She loved picking stocks. Several times I heard her say in her lighthearted tone, "I like that company, I think I'll buy some of their stock." My ex told me she'd been saying that stuff for years but no one ever took her seriously.

    Folks, that's the law of attraction too. This aunt was one of the “luckiest” people I've ever met. Even though she's gone, she's still one of my heroes. Both of these people attracted their dominant beliefs and attitudes fuled by their emotions, just like we all do. We're all creators.

    People seem to like to take pot shots at The Secret. Some say it advocates sitting around thinking "happy thoughts" while waiting for money to fall in your lap from the Universe. Too bad it’s not that simple, huh? But that's not even close to being true. Jack Canfield tells his story of learning about "The Secret," which is no secret, by the way.

    Canfield decided he wanted to make a six figure income and went to work doing just that. He had some book he'd written. And with a goal, a positive attitude, love in his heart and some work he came close to reaching his goal selling his book. He was only short of his goal by several thousand dollars at the end of the year. He expected success and got it. It wasn't long after that where he and his partners were selling hundreds of millions of books.

    Everyone of the people in the Secret worked for what they had. Every single one. And once they alligned their goals with lots of positive emotion and action, they were rewarded with far more than any of them could have ever expected.

    The "Secret" is nothing more than Cause and effect. Contrary to what many people seem to believe, it's not some marketing scam these folks dreamed up to sell books and DVDs to morons. The principles behind this are simple. Whatever your attention goes to grows. Really simple. Look for walls and you'll find them all day long. Look for bridges and you'll find them all day long. It's a choice.

    Think of the Golden Rule. That's the Secret. That's the law of attraction. There's a more hip definition of the Golden Rule that you can bank on. It goes like this: Whatever you do, you do to yourself. Peace.

      Agreed. But not necessarily the type of action people often think. To go back to the people featured in the Secret. Each of them will tell you they are working at their life's calling. And when you're doing that it's not really work. If the Secret is flawed in its presentation it's because it doesn't make a strong enough point of the need for discovering your passion and following it. And without that many come away thinking they're advocates of wishful thinking being rewarded with pie from the sky.

      People on the main board are always asking questions about what they should be doing as Internet marketers, what niche should I pick? When I respond to these questions my answer is always the same. Pick something you like or better yet, you love.

      People will answer that it's not necessary to have passion for something to make money. And I'd agree. But I'd also say that picking a product or service to market based only on it's populartiy or profitability turns it into work which will eventually become tedious and unfulfilling. Yes, money may come from it but true satisfaction won't. Life doesn't have to be a struggle. Everyone has something they're good at and enjoy doing. Do that thing with sincerity and true passion while providing exceptional value and you can't fail.

      One of the reasons why so many people doubt the effectiveness of
      the LOA is that they've usually learned about it from people who
      have never studied or practiced it.

      Even on this forum, how many people have sold or purchased LOA
      reports or eBooks with PLR rights that are based on second hand
      information that's been poorly written and researched.

      It's not surprising that so many people think it's a bogus
      concept when so many people selling LOA products don't have a
      clue about the subject.

      Even some of the most famous teachers who claim to be experts
      don't have a firm understanding of what makes the LOA work, which
      doesn't help matters.

      Just my 2 cents.

      Affirmations are the most dumbest things i have ever heard of lol, looking to yourself in the mirror and telling yourself that you are love and you are the best and that kind of crap... look if you need to convince yourself that you're a great guy in the mirror than there is something wrong with you and you need to see counseling... seriously when you tell yourself in the mirror that you're great and stuff, don't you feel a little bit well.... and i don't wanna be rude..... but like an idiot?

    Well, for me, it has worked tremendously. I had started to see the Universe as kind of like a genie. Whatever I wished for, I got it.

    I KNOW that there is something out there that functions when you are light, happy and feel that the world is your oyster. Wayne Dyer said that you don't attract what you WANT you attract what you ARE.

    If you are greedy and always want the world to give to you, then you will have the Universe wanting from you as well. If you try to push people down to further yourself, do not be surprised if it comes back on you 7 fold. The media tries to run a game that is counter to the way the Universe operates NATURALLY.

    I knew about the concepts of "The Secret" loooooooong before it came out tho. There are mindless automatons that follow the media and religion blindly to the point they have stagnated, unfulfilled lives. They see your light and then try to convince you that "God" wants you to be miserable, unhappy and unfulfilled just like they are :confused: Yeah - right. But that's another story ...

    OK : to my proof that LOA exists:

    I graduated from my University many moons ago. Had a hard time finding a job. Anywho, the long of the short, I got a job at NASA in Florida making a good deal of money (for that time) and I got to see shuttles launch which were fun

    I wanted a house on a certain part of land. I wound up building the house that I wanted and it looked exactly the way I imagined it.

    I remember listening to "La Isla Bonita" and imagining a beautiful view of the ocean and hearing the waves below. Ironically, my family and I went to Jamaica that year and stayed at a luxury resort. We were located on the penthouse floor. The view looked EXACTLY the way I had imagined it when I was singing "La Isla Bonita".

    I wanted a job that would allow me to travel and the company would pay for it. I landed a job with a foreign company where I traveled all over the US and taught classes in the UK and Europe. I stayed at 4 and 5 star hotels and drove cool Mercedes, BMWs and even got a hold of a Audi roadster (that looked like a Porsche) to drive thru Switzerland. On that same trip, I also wound up going to Egypt.

    I was so much into that vibration that I managed to manifest a week long free spa vacation at a swanky place in the Caribbean (St. Lucia). TWICE LOL

    I had so much fun in Europe I thought "Gee, it would be neat to live here for a little while. I don't want to live like a tourist though, I want to live like the locals and learn a new language and experience the culture". Thru a series of events, I got a well-paying job and company car in Europe where I was working with the natives - well - they were Germans.

    When I got back, was off for a year and wanted money to pay the taxes on my house - got 6-figure job with a 10K sign-on bonus (over the phone). I didnt see the faces of my employer until the first day of work.:p

    For my next trick, I will manifest a thriving internet company that solves problems for the world thru making software. I have been given some brilliant ideas from the Universe - of that I have no doubt. Have been even given resources to complete it. I went to see a woman at the SBDC who had background in this area and she even gave me "an inside tip" about something in the industry - which - so far - looks accurate.

    She didn't want to help me but the Universe forced her to cough up the info I needed. :p To be quite honest, I feel like I was "called" to do this one - and - out of gratitude for how my life was going, I answered.

    I am living proof that there is something that works out there. I don't watch TV as I don't want to take on their subliminal programming.

    If one says affirmations with no feeling behind them, then they will not work. The idea in saying in affirmation is that it changes your feeling (for the better) and raises your vibration so you can attract good things. Low vibe = attraction of crappy stuff. High vibe = attraction of good stuff. I think that the Source does not see situations, it only sees/registers feelings.

    For example, my grandmother always remains in peace (she is a very spiritual person) even if the walls are tumbling around her and the situation looks hopeless. She ALWAYS manifests what she needs right on time and NEVER, NEVER, NEVER a second late. She always says "thank you" for what she has as well.

    If the affirmations are repetition of mumbo jumbo for you and do not change your feeling, then of course they do not work.

      LOL its funny how people try to explain this new age religion, it's just like all the other religions you guys have a way of explaining everything that is wrong with the whole concept away.

      So how about all those kids in Africa that are dying of AIDS and hunger... it is just because they have a bad vibe? Seriously if they go to the mirrior and they "feel" that don't want hunger and AIDS and that say that to themselves 100X a day that all of the sudden food and AIDS meds are falling from the skies?

      Really?

    Yes the Law of Attraction works! I can testify to that. Back in my 20s some 20 years ago one of my biggest goals was to buy my Mom a house and for her not to worry about the payments or have the payments being a burden for her.

    My Mom & Dad divorce when I was very young, I may have been 5 or 6 years old. A traumatic time in my family life. Even at the age of 41 I still haven't gotten over the effects of my parents divorce. I watch her work hard as a single mom taking care of me, my brother & sister I wanted to give something back to her. Well, her biggest goal was to own a house with a front porch so she can sit out there in her chair. When I turned 21 I was determined to make her dreams come true.

    I got a copy of Think & Grow Rich, studied the book through & through. More importantly I applied the principles because I believe it was my destiny to change my family fortune. The only way that I believe to make my goals a reality was that I must either invest in real estate or become a business owner (entrepreneur). The real estate venture was a complete failure. But I kept on pushing regardless of what my siblings & other family members said about me. I did not care! Ridicule, call me crazy! It doesn’t matter.

    By the age of 23 I found my stride. I started a commercial cleaning business that became very successful. I had some very large accounts operating throughout Metro Springfield, MA & Hartford, CT area. Low and behold by the age of 29 not only was I able to purchase my Mom a home with a porch & a chair, I bought me one too! Now my family members aren’t laughing. They’re still angry with me but who CARES! So yes the principles of Laws of Attraction works. I believe if it weren’t for those very principles I would have not made it. I don’t know what I would be now.

      The business was created through thought. Action is a result/reflection of thought (conscious or unconscious). Think of action as an unfoldment of thought.

      Yes I took action to accomplish my goals. But I had the discipline to follow a routine to help me remind myself of my goals. The principles of Think & Grow Rich and other books are not a magic formula or voodoo. It’s a starting point, something to believe in. You just can’t say I want a million dollars and the money shows up in your account or at your door. You must have a plan, take action & follow through with your plans.

      The kids in some parts of Africa or anywhere else in the world where there is corruption & oppression do not have a choice as to how to live their lives, if that was the case then the women in the middle east will think there way from their oppressors, the people of China will tell themselves over again that they will no longer be oppressed. Poverty & hunger will be wiped out. In Nazi Germany the oppressed & imprisoned people would have ended their oppression as soon as they can. There would be a cure for AIDS.

      You have to live in a free market society for the principle of success to work. You must have a plan & most people don’t know where to start or what to do. So they read self-help books to give them a starting point, something to believe in. Some people start out on the bottom of society for generations. Someone had to take a stand and break that chain. Where are they going to learn how to do this? The generations of people in their family struck by poverty? Or a self-help book? Even in books like Think & Grow Rich, Hill talks about having specialized knowledge & organized plans. He didn’t say read the chapter on autosuggestion, imagination & faith and you will be just fine. All I am saying is that books like this give people without direction a starting point. (In a free market system)

        Even Michael Jackson one of the biggest stars in the world in his time, followed these very principles. It was said that before or while he was recording his “Thriller” album MJ wrote on his mirror the goals he wanted to accomplish with this album. Every morning he would read those plans and follow through with those plans. And we all know the end results!

        So basically you're saying that the universe is racist? because the principles only work in the west where people are rich, seriously that is the most dumbest explanation i have ever heard anyone say that was defending LOA.

    Since the OP asked for stories about the LOA, I'll share mine - hopefully without offending anyone or entering into a debate about personal beliefs.

    I was drawn to LOA from my interest in quantum mechanics and psychology in the 90's, but didn't start truly benefiting from it until around 2008. I would have minor success but nothing to write home about until I realized; the way I interacted with the world effects how the world interacts with me. Duh.

    If I focus on the positive results I've already achieved - no matter how small, I will naturally (eventually) expect positive outcomes, which on a psychological level motivates me to take more positive actions. Which then gives better results, and so on.

    It worked, the people in my life that were causing negative thoughts (a lot of them), just fell away and things started to really take off.

    Then I started doing ritualistic visualization exercises... imagining in great detail what it would be like to buy my perfect home - an luxury apartment. At this time I was living off Google Adsense, in a small damp flat barely able to pay the rent from month to month.

    Just "for a laugh" one day, I decided to go look at the most expensive luxury apartments in my city.

    And then, focused on what I really wanted, within 8 months I'd bought one.

    Within 1 month of moving in I saw my first $1000 a day.

    Within 2 months of that I saw my first $3000 a day.

    I don't attribute any of this to magic. It's psychology and hard work, LOA offers a series of tools and techniques that can focus the mind and inspire.

    Okay - I'm a convert. I was a skeptic and now I'm a believer. First, the law of attraction works - there is no longer a shred of doubt in my mind.

    Secondly, although I have personal anecdotal evidence, (which I'm happy to share - and have done so in my book, "The Book Of Being" which is on Amazon.com), neither I, nor anyone else will ever prove it in a scientific sense. The paradox, of course, is that if you believe the LOA doesn't work you'll keep finding - and perhaps even manifesting(!) - examples of it not working ... thus proving that it does!

    This then sounds like something out of the Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy!

    "Ask - Believe - Receive" isn't sufficient on its own. Wayne Dyer summed it up in one of his lectures when he said, "The law of attraction doesn't give you what you want. It gives you what you are."

    The LOA isn't a technique you can apply like a marketing trick. It's a way of life. You tune into it or you tune out of it. (And I still do both). It doesn't stop working any more than radio signals stop being there when you turn off your radio.

    My background is psychiatry/psychotherapy training - i.e. the way we use our minds and the potential of the human mind, in case that's of interest.

    Hope that stimulates some thought!
    Trevor.

    I would have to say that being able to manifest specific events and things in life is a reality - I've had way too many experiences where I was able to attract what I intended, experiences that were obviously beyond chance reasoning.

    When you set a goal to make $2.200 in a week, and you make exactly $2.200 that week, not $2.300 or $2.150, but $2.200, you really start to see what is occurring on deeper level.

    From my experiences, I think much of the process involves more getting your personal garbage out of the way (doubts, emotional patterns, stubbornness, effects of past trauma, etc), compared to learning how to do something new (visualize, positive affirmations, etc). It seems that many of the books and movies fall short of educating people about this or showing concrete methods of de-garbaging. Life the old Zen saying - you have to empty the cup before you can fill it!

    Usually if it isn't working for you, it's not because the methods are not effective, it's because you are missing a part of the process - just my opinion.

    Many great achievers have sworn by it - read think and Grow Rich. It's difficult to argue with a billionaire about what he did that worked, when you haven't come close to achieving the same level.

    I'm a big advocate of the law of attraction - however it has been over exposed and commercialised by marketers who market information about the law of attraction.

    Many wouldn't know it if they tripped over it! Why? Because they are often working from a deficiency motivation mindset in promoting it in the first place!!!

    Many (obviously not all as there are some excellent practitioners) are simply not able to effectively communicate/demonstrate it - and unfortunately it is often narrowly focused on $$$ outcomes.

    The LOA was made for IM. Its a perfect fit.

    If you are prepared to look at your own life and acknowledge the small victories or successes (and the other aspects of your life as well ie not just the successes), you may start seeing threads of truth for you....you may start seeing patterns of behaviours that give clues to what you are attracting.

    We live in "Attraction" Universe. We attract our partner based from what we set standards in our mind (e.g., blue eyes, great smile). We attract the kind of job by the type of skills we have acquired....the more skilled you have the greater your success professionally. For some, they are operating their life by default but for others who come to understand this powerful Law, they create their life by design.

    Those who continue to educate themselves (e.g read books, attend seminars, listen to audio books) are well aware the power of "Law of Attraction" and the power it brings to their success.

    The Law of Attraction is one of the many laws in our Universe (ie., Law of Cause and Effect, Law of Sowing and Reaping etc).

    I have attributed my success through this Law that is my experience.

    hey guys....yeah this is a cool thread ..because LOA has been blown out of proportion...and so many think that it is something that it is not.

    ....But really what LOA really boils down to...is a burning desire to change your life....and change your thoughts....that's it.

    ...You are what you think.

    I've seen the movie..read the book....read think n grow rich a dozen times...and there is another book..."Excuse me your life is waiting"...that is similar to this...

    ....but in a nutshell....if you observe the monkey chatter ...that is going on inside your head....we all have it...and then actually try and pay attention to what kind of chatter that is...then you will quickly get a picture of why you are where you are in life...

    ...In other words....LOA is not about some mystical thing...or secret....that will bring you riches...but rather it is something that is all about the way you think....thoughts are things!

    ..So if for example you think on a daily basis...that I don't want my job...and I don't want to have this amount of debt..and I don't want this car ....well those are "Don't want ers" and if that is your daily monkey chatter....then that is what the universe sees as what you want...and gives you more of that...your don't wants.

    However.....if you change your thoughts to....I want to make $20K a month..and I want to work at home...and I want to have kids that respect me....etc...well that is monkey chatter that is positive...and those are things that will materialize in your life.

    So the concept is....you get what you think ...

    For me...this was a tough breakthrough....once I understood that all the positive thinking in the world won't matter....if I continue to have the bullshit monkey chatter of doom...

    ....SO I made a list of things I wanted...and said them out loud everyday....affirmations...and got rid of negative self talk.

    ..This made all the difference...and as soon as I thought it was easy..instead of hard...to make $20k a month....that is exactly what happened. Yeah it took a little time...but the universe gave me what I wanted.

  • Short answer: yes.

    About 3 years or so ago, I(like many I suppose) found out about ways to earn a living entirely off of the internet and said I was going to make it! I wanted to be able receive checks in the mail. I tried(admittedly half-assed) and struggled to make a single dime. Eventually I shifted my focus to something that I had a deep knowledge of(dj'ing) and thought of ways to make money from it online. Fast forward to today, I'm receiving checks from selling dj mixes online. Now I'm thinking of ways that I can scale it up to maximize the dollars earned.

    So, yes I think the law of attraction works...but not in the sense of thinking about a certain thing will make it magically appear. It's about having a positive mindset and letting your steps be guided by that mindset.

    OK I only read the first page of this post, my comment is that there is many things missing from many LOA books, namely:

    Gratitude: plays a big part (as mentioned in my favorite "the Science of Getting Rich")
    Detachment: and
    Taking Action:

    (both as mentioned in the "Total Law of Attraction_ Unleash Your Secret Creative Power To Get What You Want!"). That is a great book IMO it does have some (irrelevant) inaccuracies but that doesn't take away from it's general excellence in bringing up what other books miss.
