We hear a lot about the Law of Attraction these days but what is it, how long have people known about it and what use is it to you and me?
People often ask me to explain in simple terms how it works, so here goes.
Please don't let the next two words scare you. Quantum Physics tells us that subatomic particles, like electrons and photons don't actually exist in any set place or time until someone observes them. Then they snap into place. Until then they exist in the quantum field of infinite potential where all possibilities exist.
That's as scary as this explanation gets.
Our thoughts and feelings are linked in a kind of loop. Your brain sends signals to your glands to produce chemicals which match it's thoughts. Those chemicals cause your feelings. Then your body sends chemical signals to your brain to think more thoughts congruent with those feelings. This thinking / feeling / thinking loop gives rise to your internal state and that state attracts your future life from the field of infinite potential.
So to attract a happy life just feel happy now. To attract a wealthy life, feel wealthy now. To attract a healthy life, feel healthy now.
Learn how to control your thoughts and feelings AHEAD of the circumstances in your life. Fortunately for you, that's exactly what I teach in my free online course, Live The Life Of Your Dreams.
Trouble is, when you have been living in the same thinking / feeling / thinking loop for many years it's become a habit. To live the life of your dreams you need to beak that habit.
There are a few other things you can do to speed things up and I will teach you those as well AND IT'S ALL FREE. Just tell me where to send your lessons ....
If you want a more detailed explanation of the science, the actual chemicals and neuro-pathways involved I recommend the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza and Dr. Bruce Lipton.
The Law of Attraction, sometimes called the Law of Intent or the Law of Mind, is a natural, universal law. Basically is says that whatever dominant thoughts we hold in our minds must, if powered by strong emotion, sooner or latter manifest in our lives. The law is as old as time, like all natural laws it came into being at the beginning of the universe, with the big bang. What use is it to you? That's entirely up to you. If you learn how to use this law properly it can bring you everything you desire.
So is the Law of Attraction magic? Well, yes and no. It really depends on how you use the word 'magic'. Most Law of Attraction gurus would say "no, the Law of Attraction is not magic, it is a natural law". I would say that their answer indicates that they don't know what magic is, they don't know what the word means. There are lots of natural laws, the Law of Gravity, Boyles Law, The Second Law of Thermodynamics and The Law of Attraction being just a few. A much older name of The Law of Attraction is 'magic', sometimes spelt 'magick' to distinguish it from stage magic. Aleister Crowley defined magic as "the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with the will". That would also be a very good definition of the Law of Attraction if you ask me.
So you can call it Magic, the Law of Attraction, spell casting, praying or whatever you like, it works whatever you call it.
I have already given you a very brief view of the quantum phisics behind the Law of Attraction. There is a non-physical field of pure energy and infinate potential that is receptive to our thoughts and feelings. We don't really know how this works. This is cutting edge stuff and the scientists are learning more about this every day. But we know that it does work because people are proving it in their lives every day.
We know that at the smallest subatomic level, what scientists call the Planck Scale, particles of subatomic matter (it's not really matter until its observed, it's only potential matter) can be in several places at once. Strange but true. And what is even stranger is that they don't seem to decide on which one of those places to be until they are observed, then they snap into place. Scientists call this the collapse of the wave function. Okay, so very small particles are affected by observation which leads us logically to suppose that the aspect of observation which is controlling matter at the Planck Scale, is mind. So have scientists finally proved mind over matter to be a fact? Well scientists tend to be a very conservative bunch and the jury is still out. To learn more about this I strongly recommend you watch the DVD What The Bleep Do We Know?
The second mechanism by which magic works is a lot more mundane. Whether we say a prayer, cast a spell or say a Law of Attraction affirmation what we are really doing is stating an intention. Our own subconscious mind will then take that intention and, just like an on-board computer on an aeroplane, it will take us there. But that's not magic you say, that's psychology. My friend, magic has always just been psychology. Magic is the earliest form of applied, practical psychology. Witches, and before them Druids, and before them who knows who, were the earliest physiologists, long before Freud and his palls reinvented the wheel and made it all 'respectable'. We can be or do or have whatever we want. We just need to believe we can, to give ourselves permission. Society has brainwashed us since birth to believe we can't. So all the wand waving and other paraphernalia of the occult are just psychological tricks to make us believe we can. And when we believe we can, we give ourselves permission and we can. We always could, we just needed reminding. We just needed to believe again.
At the time of writing, everybody is raving about the hit DVD The Secret. Get a copy, watch it, its brilliant! People say there is nothing new in it. They say it just teaches the Law of Attraction which has been known and practiced in a myriad of different forms for many thousands of years. All true but The Secret does one very special thing. It peels away all the mystery, all the occult overtones, and presents the Law of Attraction in a very clean, modern, no frills way. You don't need to wear special robes, burn incense, light candles, wave wands. You just see it done and FEEL it done, and it is.
Of course advanced occultists have known for thousands of years that you just see it done and FEEL it done, and it is but now you know it too. This knowledge has been hidden ('occult' simply means 'hidden') for far too long. Along the timeline great people have come forward to give the Law of Attraction back to the people. Great figures like the Buddha, Jesus, K'ung-fu-tzu (Confucius) and many others tried to make this stuff plain knowledge. But the rich and powerful institutions of the world don't want you to have this knowledge. They want to keep it to themselves, secret, hidden, occult. They have always needed to have an underclass of cheap labour to work their land, and more recently their factories. So they frightened people by saying that magic was evil, the work of the Devil (which they conveniently invented for the purpose). When that didn't work they resorted to torture and mass murder, remember the Burning Times, the inquisition? How could people have ever been so cruel, so wicked?
Well today, burning witches is no longer politically correct thank goodness, so there is a new tactic, debunking. They want you to believe that its all superstition, that there never were any real witches, that magic is for children. Look at the way the subject is dealt with in children's fiction. Well I can assure you that magic is very real and that witches are very real, as real today as they have ever been. But you don't have to spend years studying witchcraft or Wicca in order to master the Law of Attraction. If you do want to that's fine. Learning Wicca will give you a lot of very powerful tools to help you make the Law of Attraction work better and faster. But that path does not appeal to everyone and you certainly do not need to go down that road.
Wicca has some very good ways of working yourself up to states of high emotion, which is necessary to make the Law of Attraction work. Where it goes wrong, in my humble opinion, is that it does not put enough emphasis on gratitude.
Fortunatly you don't need to learn anything about Wicca. A simpler and very much faster way to learn this stuff is to sign up for my free online Law of Attraction course.
Having everything you want is yours by right. It is your birthright. The simplest way to lean how to do this quickly is to get a copy of The Secret and watch it. However, while you are waiting for your copy to arrive in the post, read the following pages. I will try and set out some of the basics for you here to get you started on this fascinating and highly profitable road.
Have a great life, you deserve it!
