This is being reposted to restore the link to this original post. I've had some pretty freaky success with the law of attraction. The law of attraction is simply the Universe giving you back the things you are keeping vibrant in your mind. It is the power by which worlds were molded, a power that you hold that allows you to create any reality you wish to experience.
It can work very well, and even when viewed scientifically, there is some interesting stuff to back it up. When you note the fact that everything is energy and that our thoughts and consciousness do impact and create reality, as quantum physics has shown, making the leap that we can attract what we want isn't such a stretch.
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.
In giving, love becomes the fulfillment of desire, guided and directed in the ways that bring the more perfect knowledge of self as related to the universal, all powerful, all guiding, all divine influence in life. I recently published the book, Throw Away Your Vision Board: The Truth About the Law of Attraction.
Islamic Meditation is an invaluable tool in learning to live in the present moment, to transcend the self, and so naturally employ the Law of Attraction towards creating a life based in divine providence and prosperity. Once you understand, apply and align yourself with these Universal Laws, you will experience transformation in every area of your life beyond that which you have ever dared to imagine.
Johnathan, I would say that the best way to sum up the Law of Attraction is that it IS a lie, but if you pretend that it is true, most likely it will be. I'm somewhat paraphrasing Richard Bandler there. As above, so below; as below, so above.” The major linking agent in the universe is the energy of love- wisdom, and the purpose of analogy is to lead the mind back toward the sense of oneness (enlightenment).
Conor McGregor has claimed, he uses the Law of Attraction. This is why it is important to focus on manifesting positive energy through the use of the various laws of the universe. I think the Law of Attraction is absolute crap, too. Let no one assume to forcibly teach, counsel or guide, for we all have the greatest of these we could hope for already within us. While each teacher is in a manner a director, the individual person may only be a means - not - a way of life.
But I'm not really interested in debates and disputes about the origins of this material - I'm much more interested in what the Kybalion can tell us about the history of manifestation, and in particular the human race's interaction with the Law of Attraction.
By always placing the all-powerful, all-knowing Great Spirit of which you are a part behind your every thought, statement and action, and by always focusing on the "good", even when things appear to be going "bad", then in time you will rise above the Law of Polarity.
LOA is one of those things that just baffles me as to why people buy into it. It literally amounts to nothing more substantial than, "Close your eyes, cross your fingers, and wish on a star, then alllllll your dreams will come truuuuuue!" It survives on the average person's ignorance of advanced science check here and their tendency to assume that someone using big words and "sciencey-sounding" concepts must know what they're talking about.
I think that 400 years of science have proved, beyond all reasonable doubt, that the universe is operating according to immutable natural laws. Does the law of attraction even work? Once you've opened-up and taken action to find out the causes of why life isn't what you expected it to be, then it's time to put it all right again.
