Emmet Fox wrote about metaphysics and the power of prayer in essays and books. His teachings are founded in Christianity and bible stories. He cites Jesus Christ as being the greatest teacher of metaphysics who ever lived and explains that thoughts are our most important emanation, more important than what we say or what we do. In the books Power Through Constructive Thinking and Find and Use your Inner Power Fox speaks about "building the mental equivalent of what you want and to expunge those that you don't".
Your brain is so smart that it has taken the vibrations all around you, and learned how to translate it into your “reality” in a way so that you can’t even recognise its vibration. Think about it... What are the colours that you perceive? If you’ve studied any science then you know that colour is just a vibration at a particular frequency. What are the sounds that you hear? They are nothing more than vibrations that your brain has translated in order to make sense out of it.

"And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, i pray thee that i may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not. And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father and he felt him;...And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau, his brother came in from his hunting ." - Gen.27:21,30
Thanks for the comment Anton. Good point. We do affect each other everyday, and often 2 minds upon meeting, will do one of 3 things: behave neutrally so the owner of the mind feels relaxed, be repelled, leaving the owner feeling defensive and uncomfortable or quite the opposite, be incredibly attracted to the other mind which leads to cases like "love at first sight". All that happens without us choosing how to behave, the mind chooses. Yes, something is definitely occurring.
Your thoughts and actions create a result. Everything you think, say, and do will have an effect. Every action generates a force of energy that returns to it in kind and that energy continues to flow back and forth. If you don’t have a clear understanding that this is how things are, then the Law of Attraction makes your reality seem like the world is bleak because you don’t understand how you are attracting the very thing you wish to get away from. You just do your best to keep thinking happy thoughts in the hopes that something good will eventually occur.
