Overview

Imagine for a moment that you have in your possession a source of complete and
total power. You alone can command the warmth of the sun, the fall of the rain, the turn
of the tides and the direction of the winds. What would you do with this kind of power?
Would you abuse it causing the world to fall into utter chaos? Would you be benevolent
and merciful, using your power to help the people of your planet achieve their ultimate
potential?
Unfortunately (or fortunately, as the case may be) there is no way for a person to
have that much power. Mother Nature controls the planetary systems according to her
own rules and her own designs. You will never be able to have utter control over the
environment you are inhabiting.
What if you could, however, have the power to determine the course of your own
life? What if you could accomplish great things and acquire great riches just by using the
power of your own mind? What if I told you that this does not have to be a “what if?”
What if I told you that you possess in your psyche the power to chart the course of the
rest of your life on whatever path you see fit?
Chances are you would tell me that I had obviously been watching too much Sci-
Fi and needed to get out of the house more often, not to mention my obvious need to
expand my vocabulary, considering the number of times I have used “what if” in this
conversation. You would be wrong (about the Sci-Fi, anyway). Every person holds in
their mind the power to shape the events of their life to achieve whatever end they see fit.
This power is what is known as the law of attraction.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The belief held by many theorists is that the universe is governed by a set of
universal laws; these laws cannot be changed, cannot be broken and apply to every
individual, regardless of age or nationality. These laws are the riverbanks which guide the
flow of their lives on its journey to its ultimate end.
The law of attraction is one such law. The law of attraction is the belief that
anyone can determine their destiny through the power of their minds.
"The Law of Attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the
nature of your thoughts. Your environment and financial condition are the perfect
reflection of your habitual thinking." Joseph Murphy
The History of the Law of Attraction
Before we go too deep into the modern applications of the law of attraction it is
important that you understand that this is not simply New Age nonsense (most
descriptions of the law of attraction refer to it as a product of a New Age Mentality). The
principles of the law of attraction date back far beyond the new found popularity of the
New Age.
The immortal Buddha was actually one of the first to introduce man to the law of
attraction. He said, “What you have become is what you have thought.” This was a
principle that the people of the east were acquainted with for centuries before it began to
sweep into the western hemisphere.
The concept of karma also may have drawn its roots from the law of attraction.
Karma states that you will eventually be revisited by that which you have sent out into
the universe. If you have practiced kindness and compassion you will receive in kind. If
you have been deliberately cruel to another you will receive back into your life that
cruelty which you have sent out. Your actions and thoughts morph into physical entities,
causing the universe to react in kind.
The law of attraction began to gain popularity in the western hemisphere in the
19th century, as people began to appreciate the power of positive thinking and apply it to
their life. This new concept was first introduced to the general public by William Walker
Atkinson, the editor of New Thought magazine, who published a book called Thought
Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World in 1906.
As you can see, the law of attraction is not new. The concept that thought can
have a predominate affect on the course of a man’s destiny has been taught by wise men
throughout the ages, and has given rise to a whole new era of beliefs.
What is the Premise of the Law of Attraction?
The theory behind the law of attraction is the belief that energy attracts like
energy in the vast expanse of space and time that comprises our universe. Each person’s
being is constantly radiating energy out into space; the type of energy being radiated is
determined by the emotional state of the individual in question and may differ from day
to day-sometimes even hour to hour!
This emotional energy is what is commonly known as a “vibe” and is referred to
as a vibration by scientists studying the law of attraction. Chances are that you are
