Regarding the law of attraction, you're close, but not quite right.
You do not visualize anything except the end goal. You only visualize the can of peas in your hand. You do not visualize jumping or touching the can
or your feet in the air or anything else. You let your subconscious mind handle all of that by not visualizing it at all. It actually works really
well for sports because you block out all the distracting chatter going on in your mind so there's more brain power available to calculate the exact
degree of rotation your wrist needs to turn and whether you should land on your right or left foot. The point is to NOT think about those things or
anything else so your muscle memory and subconscious can do it without conscious interference or distraction.
Law of attraction mainly works by getting your subconscious mind and conscious mind working toward the same goals. Most people don't realize they
subconsciously sabotage themselves, and sometimes consciously, too ("that girl would never be interested in me, she's too pretty. I shouldn't even
bother going over there."). So there is a slight but noticeable difference in results just for that.
As far as metaphysical effects, yes the law of attraction has been around a long time and yes it does work. It does change reality just a little
teeny tiny bit. But if you talk to most witches, occultists, and mages, and mention The Secret, they will not take you seriously. The reason is the
Law of Attraction is just one technique that just gives one tiny advantage. It's like trying to catch a fish with one tiny hook and a few feet of
string. There are so many other techniques, practices, tricks, and methods that each bestow just a tiny statistical advantage (like fishing with
rods, reels, lures, bait, etc.). Learning to affect reality with your mind is a lifelong course of study that yields tiny results at first and
gradually becomes more and more effective as you practice and study and practice and study. The law of attraction was mentioned in one of the hermetic
works along with a bunch of other laws, like the law of polarity, for example. It's almost like trying to be Christian by just following one
