Thank you for your comments. Hard to be positive when talking about the LOA. It's focus on blaming is pervasive. I am a positive psychologist and have proposed a new way of looking at attraction called the Principle of Attraction. As a Principle, like tends to attract like. Positive thoughts, feelings, actions, and words often attracts positivity...but not always. It's not a law, it's a principle, based on positive and social psychology.
Now we know that radio waves travel through space and through the use of the right tools, become sounds or pictures, however, how do they travel? How is it possible for them to travel as they do. It is because there is an ether or zero point energy that permeates and penetrates everything around us. It is possible,through this ether for vibrations to travel huge distances. How does this play a part in manifesting desires?
A huge component of what creates that force, that pull, magnetism, if you will, is self-worth. Anytime I would step into my power, and no longer settle for things where I had been really small or insecure in the past, and say no—and claim my power—what I wanted would connect with me. Thinking positive had nothing to do with it; it was standing in my power and strength and worth and not settling for less that mattered.
There's an old saying, perhaps you've heard it, "consider the source"? Do you not see the irony in your criticism of LOA, classifying it as a "pseudoscience", with your employer being PSYCHOLOGY TODAY? if I'm not mistaken, has the field of psychology itself, in It's infancy as well as today, not been debunked, by "actual science", referring to it also as "pseudoscience"?
Based on what the mystery man taught me, and my study of numerous other approaches, I believe that three essential elements need to be included for effective manifestation. The reason many “law of attraction” teachings and techniques fall short of changing people’s lives in sustainable and measurable ways is that they fail to embrace all three elements. I am convinced that all three of these factors need to be addressed in order for each of us to become a powerful creator.
Of course you can allow yourself to experience every kind of feeling just for the experience of it. Listening to bittersweet or sad songs and watching heart breaking movies sometimes do help us to cherish the positive and happy things in life more. It is ok to engage in things that causes you to experience them some of the time. Just make sure that your dominant emotional experiences are in accordance to experiencing what you do desire.
The most valuable aspect of this book to me are the several exercises offered at the end. I've experimented with a few of them already: they are easy to do and seem to work. Practical spirituality is how I would describe it. Yes, there are a few typos as other readers have pointed out but in my opinion they do not detract from the experience of the book. I think Abraham would say it's all about what you focus on, folks. Makes me wonder if maybe the typos were made on purpose. PEACE.
For example, if you are currently unhappy with the state of your bank balance you will most probably be responding to this with negative emotions of ‘want’ and ‘lack’. However, when you respond to an area of your life in this way, you are only making the problem bigger for yourself. The more we give our attention to something, be it negative or positive, the more we attract it into our life.
6) No Challenges: Challenges are considered negative thoughts and are to be avoided. Besides, if you’ve theoretically already achieved your goal, there could not be any challenges. As Esther Hicks, has stated, “Once you have recognized that thinking of what you do not want only attracts more of what you do not want into your experience, controlling your thoughts will not be a difficult thing…” There are many goal-achieving benefits to acknowledging and planning for challenges that may arise. Unfortunately, a belief in a law of attraction does not allow for you to accomplish this.
Whatever you are thinking and feeling at any given time is basically your request to the universe for more of the same. Because your energy vibrations will attract energy back to you of the same frequencies, you need to make sure that you are continually sending out energy, thoughts, and feelings that resonate with what you want to be, do, and experience.
13) Placebo Effect: Placebos are inactive, ineffective substances to which a positive effect has been attributed. The greater your expectations and beliefs that something will be effective, the greater chance it has of creating a positive response. The mind is a powerful tool. We can increase or decrease our heart rate and blood pressure through visualization. A few individuals using a LOA have a firm belief that it will work and so it does. People tend to have more success with the LOA for smaller items for which they did not make a vision board; finding money on the street, getting a check in the mail, hearing from a long lost friend, etc. Is a belief in a law of attraction any better than rubbing a rabbit’s foot, tossing a coin in the fountain, or pulling apart a wishbone? Test it yourself, the answer is no!
