Law of Attraction does it work or is it a load of Crap?

The Law of Attraction has gotten a lot of attention over the past several years and rightly so, the idea that you can attract whatever you want in life is pretty cool idea isn’t it. But does it really work? The Law of Attraction has been around forever, however it was popularized by Rhonda Byrne’s the movie The Secret, which actually came from a book she was given – The Science of Getting Rich. The Secret gives a simple three step process to use The Law of Attraction to get anything you want.

Step One: Ask

Step two: Believe

Step Three: Receive

That’s it, easy enough, right? Wouldn’t it be great if that’s all there was to it and it were that easy?

Well, it’s not. I don’t care who you are you’re never going to attract the life you want or the money you desire just by sitting around following those three steps. I don’t care how much you visualize and believe I’ve never seen or heard of the new car just appearing out of thin air. A little thing called action needs to come into play. I remember Bob saying one time:

“Belief does not sit the couch and wait for success to arrive.”

I’m so tired of hearing people say that they’re trying to use the Law of Attraction, they’re really focusing on manifesting but nothing’s happening and they’re not going anywhere. It’s sad that these people don’t understand that they actually have to get up off of their duff and actually do something.

Try this simple test I heard one time and see for yourself.

The next time you get really thirsty I want you to sit down at a table and take step one…

Ask that your thirst be satisfied.

Then take step two…

Believe with your whole being that your thirst will be clinched. Really believe, visualize how refreshing it will taste and how refreshed you will feel after you have that water in your body.

Now moved to step three…

Receive the water.

What nothing happened? There’s no water even in front of you. Did you really focus your energy on it? Maybe didn’t believe enough, try again, still nothing, weird. The Law of Attraction must not work. Maybe you need to work on your manifestations, right?

No, the Law of Attraction works just fine, it’s always working. You’re just missing one step. You see, it should be a four step process. Step one and two are correct, I just want you to add one more step before receiving which is now step four. So let’s try this again with this new magical step.

Step 1:

Ask that your thirst be satisfied.

Step 2:

Believe and visualize how refreshing it will be – see the end result.

Step 3:

ACT – get off your ass and get a glass of water!

Step 4:

Put the glass to your lips and … Drink the water.

Now I know that was a ridiculous example, but it’s easy to see why people are getting so frustrated when it comes to the Law of Attraction. They’re thinking too much and not taking any action.

Just act… MOVE!

To really understand this process of the Law of Attraction we need to understand that the Law of Attraction is actually a secondary law to the Law of Vibration. That law that states nothing is at rest everything moves; everything is energy and has a frequency or vibration. Your own body is nothing more than a massive energy at a high speed of vibration.

If you want to consciously work with the Law of Attraction you need to get in harmony with whatever it is you desire, that is to say you’re in the same vibration or frequency.

How do I do that, you may be saying?

You engage one of your higher faculties your imagination, by the way you have 6 faculties of the mind, do you know them? That’s for another post.

Thoughts are energy, highly potent energy, and you build an image, because we think in pictures, as you focus your energy on that image and add feelings to it, you move into your subconscious mind. It’s the ideas in the subconscious mind that alter the vibration you’re in which controls your behavior or actions.

When you get emotional involved with that image, as if it’s already happened, the subconscious doesn’t know the difference between fantasy or reality, that new vibration causes you to take the action that is needed to move you in harmony towards your goal and as you move towards it, it moves towards you hence, the Law of Attraction.

Ok, let’s wrap this up and put a bow on it, shall we?

The Law of Attraction does it work?


Is the Law of Attraction a load of crap?

I hope by now you’ll agree that… no, no it’s not crap, people have been using it the wrong way, looking for the easy way, just to sit back and do nothing.

The Law of Attraction is a real force and it really doesn’t matter if you believe it is or not. It will work regardless. My advice would be not to get hung up on whether it’s a real or not. Am I doing it right? Just do this:

Decide what you want, be specific and write it down.

Build a clear image in your mind, make it real.

Get emotionally involved with that image.

Take the actions that will move you towards that image.

If you take those steps, thinking about your image an much as possible throughout the day, being persistent and taking the necessary action daily in confidence, you’ll reach your goal.

To your massive success,

    Hey Ed! When I discovered the law of attraction back in 2005. I was totally blown away. A concept that I’ve never knew existed but at the same made so much sense. So, I am in agreement with you that it isn’t a load of crap. Great piece of writing Ed!
