Law of attraction practiced prior to the 1800s. If you are referring to arcane practices in Babylon and Biblical times that we have little knowledge of, I am aware and have looked at these. If there are some specific and relevant references I would be interested in hearing them. As you believe in a LOA, most of what you hear will be filtered through this lens. As I now do not, most of what I hear will be seen through that lens.
10) Blame Yourself: As the LOA is supposed to be a perfect, universal law, positivity should ALWAYS attract more positivity. The corollary of this is that you alone are completely responsible for any goal that was not successfully achieved, no matter how unrealistic the goal. This assumes that you not only control your thoughts and actions, but also those of everyone around you…and nature. The fact is, that you don’t. Sorry to break that to you.
From this knowledge, it can be stated that your entire “reality” is all within your head. There is nothing “out there” even though it seems like it. It’s the case of the popular question, “if a tree falls in a forest and nobody’s there to hear it, does it make a sound?” The idea is that you cannot experience your reality without actively perceiving it and this is the fundamental basis of the Law of Attraction.
I can definitely tell you the Law of Attraction works, absolutely, no doubt in my mind about it. Believe me when I saw I'm am a very practical, common sense person. I gotta see stuff to believe it. I can tell you that I've seen it immediately happen in my life after getting the concept. Anything from "picking" my parking space at Costco, ahead of time, in the prime spot, at the entrance exactly where I wanted it to be, on a Saturday and WAY beyond those mundane things.
Lucky people don’t do the ego dance, which is when we go out into public or we’re around somebody new and low self-worth leads us to question: “Who should I be? Will they love me? What do I say for them to love?” Magnetic people don’t do that. They share a dissociation from that ego dance and they’re just presently, authentically, vulnerably themselves.
Develop an unflappable belief. Very likely you haven’t manifested what you desire because deep down you don’t believe that it could be yours. This is absolutely common and there is nothing bad about it. Nevertheless, if you lack the belief that it can be yours then it CANNOT manifest. With your disbelief you block the manifestation. Let’s say that you have a clear vision with strong desire but you don’t believe that it could happen for you. Then what happens is like saying; ‘’Actually, I cannot have it. I don’t believe that it can be mine.” The Universe responds; “so be it”. Why don’t you believe that it can be yours? Dig deep within yourself to find out what you belief is and then work on changing it.
“Your manifesting results comprise a chain with a zillion tiny links—moments, experiences, conversations, physical objects, and coinciding events—all leading up to what you'd consider "the finished product" or the goal achieved. Be open to recognizing and appreciating every link. Normally the mind glosses, or even steamrollers, over them, discounting them as stupid, unimportant, too-little-too-late, irrelevant or uninteresting.”
Manifesting Your Desire
Your second point is an interesting discussion. You are correct that in its infancy, psychology was criticized for claiming to be a scientific field and not living up to that assertion by performing quality research. I believe that this question has been put to rest as the rigors of publishing in psychology require randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled trials.
The hubs (then boyfriend) pulled me out of my tailspin one night. He sat me down and had me list all the characteristics and qualities of my dream work life. Number one, was being able to stop to watch Ellen every day. Number two, I wanted to help others, #priorities ?. The list went on and on from there. Everything was written out. From what my daily schedule would look like, to the things I did and didn’t like in past jobs. With a super clear vision of what I wanted, and didn’t want in a career, I decided to get back into my daily meditation and daily yoga practice.
Quash negative thought projections when you notice them brewing. Negative thoughts often become cycles, and part of self-confidence means negating the thoughts that will make you feel otherwise. Even if you think the feelings themselves are rational, acknowledge that there is no point in thinking them in the first place. It's a difficult mental skill to master, but one that will mean a huge difference in your overall self-confidence when done correctly.
In order to create this new reality, chances are you’ll need to form new habits or develop new skills that will strengthen the muscles that will ultimately build the vision. Some of these might be inner mental or emotional skills, such as patience, focus, and tenacity or external physical skills such as running, cycling, and swimming if your vision is to take part in your first triathlon.

If you’re practicing the technique on something bigger, this exercise may be tricky, but use your imagination. If you’re trying to lose weight, go out and buy an outfit that fits the size you’re aiming for. If you want a new car, go to a dealership and shop around. If you’re aiming for something as big as complete financial freedom, start planning what you’re going to do with all that free time and money.
Listen, I get it, we live in a fast-moving environment today, but the old adage, “stop and smell the roses” really comes to mind when manifesting. You see, if your mind is focused on what you don’t have, or that things aren’t working as quickly as you’d like, you will miss out on the small victories. Celebrate those small wins! You have to acknowledge the victories if you want to continue to find trust and faith in the process. Keep your eyes, ears, and heart open to signs from the Universe that it has your back. It could be someone acknowledging a change in you, a quote on social media that was exactly what you needed to hear that day, or even a smile from a stranger that warms your heart. Stay open, be present, and take note.
Think of it as a radio signal. As you scan through the radio, in-between stations fight for a signal. Most people are pretty familiar with this experience. The two stations compete and occasionally you’ll hear one song and then parts of a different song start to edge in. You’ll notice that neither station comes in perfectly crisp and clear. In the same manner, when you experience doubt or fear, those thoughts and feelings interrupt and compete with your desires.
In his 1910 The Science of Getting Rich Wallace D. Wattles espoused similar principles — that simply believing in the object of your desire and focusing on it will lead to that object or goal being realized on the material plane (Wattles claims in the Preface and later chapters of this book that his premise stems from the monistic Hindu view that God provides everything and can deliver what we focus on). The book also claims negative thinking will manifest negative results.

Because they have limiting beliefs about themselves and the world. It creates a self-sabotaging cycle that can result in a life of regret. We all have the power to manifest our dreams, but in order to do, so we have to shift to a more positive way of thinking. Using the Law of Attraction to manifest your dreams is about actively holding yourself in the energetic space of infinite possibility.
You are describing how it is desirable to have the good and bad. Death is good. Aging is good. Disease is good. I don't necessarily disagree with your premise. However, these are not the things that people typically want or desire to fill their lives. When you talk about creation and destruction being natural phenomenon, I agree. But invoking the law of attraction should stop the destruction part if that's what I want to attract. This is irrespective of it being objectively good or bad.

Others have questioned the references to modern scientific theory, and have maintained, for example, that the Law of Attraction misrepresents the electrical activity of brainwaves. Victor Stenger and Leon Lederman are critical of attempts to use quantum mysticism to bridge any unexplained or seemingly implausible effects, believing these to be traits of modern pseudoscience.
