The law of attraction is not particularly new. If one were to purchase a copy of the 1904 Advanced Course in Yogi Philosophy and Oriental Occultism,
you'll find the law of attraction spoken about in some depth. You will also find it in the Tao Teh Ching and the Hua Hu Ching, spoken about in great
length. Napoleon Hill talks about it in his many books.
The concept is as follows, we are all contributing to the Universe. Our every thought, feeling, action, sends a message to the Universe, that it must
react to in some form. When we're thinking positive thoughts, feeling positive feelings, taking positive action, we're creating a sense of harmony
with the Universe. However, we can think happy thoughts, but if our emotions don't match, or our actions, we create a sense of disorder, which the
Universe must respond to.
Now, when it comes to the law of attraction, you need to be constantly sending a harmonious message to the Universe of what you'd like to achieve. In
other words, you picture it, and breathe vital positive feeling into it, morning, noon, night, and at all times. Eventually, you program your
subconscious to emit this message automatically. When you're sending out a harmonious message at all times, the Universe must always work to respond
to it in some way. However, if your thoughts don't last long, or if they have some hint of doubt or negative feeling, you will not only attractive
the negative, but you repel your objective.
When you send out harmonious messages, via your thoughts, feelings, words, actions, and habits, the Universe is like "Hey, he's creating harmony in
the Universe in relation to this goal. let's assist him with it." But if you combine your mental pictures with doubt, shallow breath, fears,
disbelief, the Universe responds in a non-harmonious way, in order to tell you that the message you're sending doesn't make sense and isn't getting
Also, The law of attraction is only designed to assist a person in getting what they want. For example, you may want the money to buy a new home. You
may be inspired to take up a new career, or begin a new venture that will assist you in making the money. But, if you don't take actions towards this
inspiration, again, you get nowhere. You are putting resistance into the formula.
In other words, you need to have positive, vivid imagery, empowered with positive feeling via deep breathing. You need to take action that is either
inspired via revelation, or similar steps taken by those who have achieved what you want. In this way, the action you're taking is proven to work.
Then, you need to inspire others to help you, but you must give to them equally for how they will help you.
Also, whatever you want to achieve, you can have, if you put in the equal effort to the value of what you want to achieve. For example, if you want
ripped six pack abs, you won't get them, unless you do the exercise, and eat right. You can picture them all you want, but without the action,
All the law of attraction does is assist your current efforts, and only when your efforts are all harmonious both within yourself, and with the
Universe. When your efforts are all without resistance, the Law of Attraction can finally point you in the right direction, either by inspiring you to
check something out, or bringing some opportunity to your attention, or by getting you to run into someone or some circumstance that could lead to the
acquisition of your objective.
In other words, it was never meant to be this whole magic get rich quick, instant magic scheme. It's part of a process, that will take you in a
successful direction if you follow the steps. But when you do not follow the steps, you do not achieve success. The Law of Attraction is just one of
dozens of laws that when applied, can assist someone in achieving their desires. To me, movies like "The Secret" though they bring awareness,
possibly hurt the whole situation more than helped it, by spreading such an incomplete picture, that the failed results one may have from there will
push you away from this type of information.
So, the catch is, it isn't a fix all. You can't just picture hot ladies coming to your door and expect it to happen. You can't just think the world
to change. You need to apply the rest of the principles to even begin to activate the benefits of such a law. Your must be persistent, and once
eventually your mind acts like a broadcasting system, broadcasting a strong, harmonious message at all times, the the Universe can start reacting to
help you a long the way.
