This is being reposted to restore the link to this original post. This ancestral attraction to action men may also be why facial scars in men are seen as attractive, as long as they are the right kind of scar. There is a way, and the law of attraction is somewhat true; in that farm labourer became a writer and a TV presenter is now very rich.
The basis of all manifestation principles and every way in which the Law of Attraction has been represented by every human being who has ever studied the subject is simply this: by using certain techniques in a certain way you have the ability to connect your mind to the Cosmic Consciousness.
Abstract: Multidimensional potential energy landscapes (PELs) have a Gaussian distribution for the energies of the minima, but at the same time the distribution of the hyperareas for the basins of attraction surrounding the minima follows a power-law.
The first article about this was in Psychology Today - Throw Away Your Vision Board” After a quarter million hits and much hate mail, I wanted to make sure that I had a thorough LOA understanding so I read every book from the originators of the law in the late 1800s and became a certified Advanced Practitioner of the Law of Attraction” by one of the authors of "The Secret." I then wrote Throw Away Your Vision Board 2” This time the feedback was a little more positive.
Again, this can often be a great time for us to inadvertently create a whole different experience simply so we can move beyond the attachments that we create at the mind level. Whether you believe here it or not, whether you want to believe it or not, the Law of Attraction always was, and will always be.
Middle class and rich people who use the law attraction are much more likely to achieve their goals, and that is because they are surrounded by opportunities. For simplicity's sake, I'm going to use here the abbreviation LOA throughout the article when I'm speaking about the Secret or the Law of Attraction.
The fact that we build evidence to support our beliefs is not evidence that a law of attraction exists. You cannot prove the Law of Attraction works (results are 100 % speculative and suggestive). I never thought i could achieve anything in life till i read the secret.
Law of attraction methods rely on faith in the universe - make no plans and take no action (so say the LOA experts). You are correct that I do not believe in a law of attraction. It makes using law of attraction easier when we know how malleable our beliefs are; how flexible our rituals, and even how ancient and diverse are our gods.
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.
If you properly study LOA, you will know that it say by emitting positive thoughts and vibrations you float a frequency in universe that starts attracting to you correct opportunities in the form of circumstances and people and when you grab those opportunities, you reach your goal.
4) Research also shows that visualizing a "perfect" relationship or "perfect" diet (as mandated by the law of attraction) leads to a greater chance of failure and less motivation. Also, due to the fact that Hinduism had a huge influence on Theosophy, you can also find mentions of the Law of Attraction in the Theosophical texts.
