If the popular definition of the Law of Attraction were true, then every obsessive masturbator would be living like Hugh Hefner.
there's much more to it than mere focus of attention and visualization.

Money - Find something you love to do that people will pay for. You are much more likely to become good at something you love to do.

Fame - Can easily come from the above. Be careful what you wish for though.

Credibility - Be truthful always

Health - Eat right and exercise regularly

LOA is not a genie in the bottle, you have to take action. LOA can help you a lot, like recognize oppertunity when it comes along, but fear usually makes people hesitate.

I've had wonderful successes due to this thread, thanks Skyfloating.

I've been reading this thread from the beginning.

I knew all about LOA, but somehow, someway life got in the way and for years I forgot all about it.

Then I stumbled upon this thread, just a few weeks after I was trying to get my life back. I was thinking that I was in need of a guru or something.

I've been reading a few weeks now and today I finished reading the last post.

I noticed Skyfloater is not answering on this thread anymore, neither do Ilusionsaregrander, Vanitas, Illahee etc.
but still I want to thank all of you.

You gave me my life back.

I've had experiences with law of attraction but I never found a book or theory that explains it correctly. It's very much different than it is described everywhere in popular media, forums and youtube videos. I can't figure it out yet..it's like you really get what you're focused on after a while ONLY when you stop being focused on that, but 'universe' is not responding to YOUR will at all. You can't have what you want directly and immidiately, it gives you opportunity to do what you're focused on but only when you're ready for it. And that is when you're not focused on it. Weird. For example, I decide that I want to try something, do something or whatever and then after I lost all hope and when I'm doing something else not even thinking about my wish it appears directly..almost like 'here, you asked for it' and you're just amazed and you think what the hell took you so long.

It has to do something with living in the moment I guess. You can't ask for something and wait for it to happen, you can just plan your experiences in advance and live with what you have at the moment IN the moment. And everything you wished for will come to you. It's easy to attract events and people, new experiences in general..and if you wish for 5 million dollars you should rather wish for your life as millionare/experience of that.

This one fact concerning the LOA disturbs me.

Why do people still starve?

They want food, their motives are pure, yet they still starve to death.

Why doesn't LOA work for them?


It works perfectly well for them. "You get more and more of what you already have". In other words, if you are surrounded by poverty, your attention is forced on poverty on a daily basis and it is highly unlikely that anything other than where your attention is will be created.


page 18 of an epic thread found five years later, the glass is always half full.

This post right here is the reason there should be no borders, and it's about food of a different sort on many levels.
Imagine refreshing the 'view' of all those people and what that could do....
no wonder a sense of humour is important

back to page 18, this could take a while but I am cherry picking posts

You have a way with words


Shame the op has been gone from this thread for so long, although he might think it's gone on long enough.
I was going to offer a tweak to one of his reccomended readings, if any one's interested......

Franz - Initiation into hermetics.

For some this is a short spontenious experience of intitiation, then they go looking for answers, this is not a compete book either.
Sometimes it's done backwards. or hardest lessons first sort of thing.

Being cautious of 'cost of requests' is as important as it is for all those who place themselves under specific names for protection.

When they ask and they recieve who do they owe?
It is better to send out, that all contact is okay if it is done in the spirit of love and compassion with personal boudaries in place for contact.
The fact that you keep on asking for things, from something you can't see is a little irrisponsible.

Enjoying what you have and requiring nothing is very liberating. It's funny but, that's when you are wooed, and I do mean wooed.
It's weird but lovely and there is always information attached to whatever form of scinario happens, waking or asleep.
Someone will say I have created this for myself, but I'm on the beg to differ side on that just yet. There is no way all that was in my imagination, in fact I'm very cautious now about what i do imagine because of it, and I'm one of these 'die hard want to ride the dragon sorts'. Perhaps I just like teasing fate, and I'm cheeky. I dunno.
Oh don't worry, I've dealt with the violence of the cheek.
and I'm finding it very hard to be sorry


Anyhoo, back to Franz, he says you can imagine washing your filth and guilt and negative whatever in water and discard it, making sure no one comes in contact with it.
Well, common sense tells me that if it's energy toxic water,and you are chucking it, you haven't resolved it, you are mearly setting it free in your evironment.
You can not destroy water
It continues as does the energy
Why would you tip that junk down the drain or outside on the grass?
I had the same problem with practicing wicca people, grounding their negative energy, if they practised properly they wouldn't have negativity, or such a small amount as to harm none.

How about try to wash in gratitude and love, doesn't matter what the quality of water is, then share that water in the spirit of giving and gratitude and love (especially if you think you've made the water especially disgusting with your filth
)

Be grateful and honour that which is given and it will sing to you, it's all pretty simple.

What is not simple is the imbalance all this over use and self gratification has caused, smashing up against pious strictness of lack, intermingling and emerging and creating disease elsewhere. That is the most important reason that we are all guilty of how this is playing out, it also gives us a way to help, or at least not cause futher damage that has vast implications to all there is.

There is much to learn.

I would love to hear how the op is doing, no specifics, just general this that stuff and a question, what does that letter mean in your triangle?

thanks for listening

Very informative, S&F.

I'm in a "learning" phase. Lucky to come across this thread.


Different types of psychology are some of my favorite things to learn. I tried to watch "The Secret" and only got through about fifteen minutes of it... it seemed too "fluffy" to me, if that makes any sense.

It's true. You can't just focus on the positive and ignore the negative.

If anyone wishes to know how LOA really works, I could refer you to:

I am curious to know if you think the theory presented is plausible.

I came across Law of Attraction back in 2009 at the beginning of my awakening, it worked for me, and after reviewing a couple of the books you mentioned i settled on Esther and Jerry Hicks book LoA and they did it beautifully, with words from Abraham the answer is at first to raise your vibrations so that sts turns to sto, with this in mind the things you need to advance you on your spiritual path will be come available to you just when you need it. I guess the art of tything is encompassed with LoA, as long as you are giving your all for the betterment for the greater good you will always find you have what you need.

Yes, this works. It is access meditation, and you are using the first jhanas of meditation to get 'between' the 'heartbeat' of reality to help mold its outcome.

This is occult science, and it has roots from spiritual practices. But if you seek everlasting happiness and enlightenment, you must drop these concepts and push past to something else, until there is no more pushing, and there is no more something else.

So, this is how it works, imo

For naive and childlike beginners it works just like they say it in the movie "the secret". It works like magic until the cynical, questioning, skeptical, worried mind kicks in. After the excitement and novelty has worn off, this is how it, imo, actually works:


You forgot something...

Conflict.

If your desires are in conflict with other desires they cancel themselves out. Example.... I want to drive to work in a Ferrari but love my daily bicycle to work.

Want to be rich and famous but love the life I have now.

etc...

For the law of attraction to work you have to be in harmony with ones self for the universe to manifest.

I agree, that is one of the conditions for this to work you have to know what you want, at least if you are after something specific. Toward the beginning of the thread SF did talk about using the LOA in a general sense to attract an all around better life, this had to do with surrender.
The above quote you posted from SF; I wonder if this kind of explains the idea of beginners luck?

To those who seriously think that LoA exists please explain this....

1. Why do many (good or bad) things happen even though we do not think about wanting or not wanting them conscious or unconsciously?
2. Why do we only see one in a million lottery ticket winner? Is there a marked increase of winners since "the secret" book was released? And why is that one winner is always seemingly surprised by the winning?
3. Do we see an increase in the number of ultra rich people lately (is there more than 1% now?)? more altruism than greed? more justice than scams than pre-"The Secret"?
4. For those who say LoA works for them, would you be willing to part some of your riches to ATS members who need cash? You can attract more, can't you? Please state your contacts and phone numbers for necessary collection arrangements.

Sorry folks. There is no secret in life. We just have to follow with good intentions, our passion, intuition and surrender to the lessons planned for us. Forget buying any book unless you feel compelled to donate to the already rich authors who should be able to afford giving the books away for free.

Mastering the Law of Attraction and Law of Repulsion; you have become a magician.

I have read bits and pieces of a book about the laws of attraction and I found it very interesting and personally I think its true but not to the extent that some people think. For example simply thinking something is going to happen will not make it happen. But as stated in the OP thinking of what you want as already happened or going to happen will put you in the mindset that may be required or beneficial to you acquiring whatever it is.
