1) Metaphysical Pseudoscience: LOA proponents claim that it is based on scientific theory. It is at best, metaphysical pseudoscience with conclusions based on erroneous, unfounded, and often incorrect assumptions. The list of incorrect scientific information that is suggested by LOA creators is way too long for article (more details check out “Throw Away Your Vision Board book.” Here are a few of their scientific truths.”
Yes Pwalker281, I agree with you. It is a struggle choosing which angle to view it from, the quantum physics angle, the religious angle, buddhism, the secret. I like to think that it is part of our mission (as individuals in this reality)to finally realise and understand that everything is one, connected and to stop questioning it and just experience the love in life. Something like that anyway! :) Deep down we all just want to love, there is no hate, or at least no where near as powerful as love. We are perhaps beings of love that created this physical world to experience just how powerful love and happiness could be, which is why we need bad and good. Having the bad makes the good so so much more wonderful.
The fact that we build evidence to support our beliefs is not evidence that a law of attraction exists. Why do innocent babies attract negativity that causes them to be in the ICU with fatal illnesses? Why do happy children get hit by cars or murdered by terrorists? Why do people who cheat and lie and abuse others, sometimes prosper and become leaders in society? If we are using anecdotal evidence to support claims, I will have plenty of examples.
Call it luck. Call it prayer. Call it manifesting. Just don’t call it magic. If you were to pick up a book on manifesting, you might think that all you need to do is visualize what you want, then keep visualizing it, and visualize some more, and then—poof!—it appears. But in the world of Lacy Phillips, who has built her life and career around this skill, it is simple psychology. It involves understanding your childhood programming and your shame and reprogramming your subconscious beliefs; it requires work and action and vulnerability.
If you are constantly cranky and upset, then you will be creating more of the same into your experience. It works like a big mirror. You create your vibrational set point, buzz that frequency out into the ether and whatever your dominant energetic patterns are will be drawn to you in the form of things, people and experiences that are in alignment with your vibration set point.
The following feelings and attitudes emit a higher vibrational frequency that resonates with your desires and attract them faster. Happiness, joy, bliss, appreciation, gratitude, love, peace, admiration, certainty, confidence, faith, courage, hope, freedom and trust. The following feelings emit a lower vibrational frequency that attracts negative events and push your desires away. Condemnation, guilt, worry, disappointment, resentment, fear, insecurity, doubt, hesitation and sadness.
In truth, though, we're missing out on a lot of the power the concept has to offer. I wish more people were using the law of attraction to “manifest” a life they love. As a spiritual teacher and healer, I’ve seen the power of the law of attraction create love, healing, and, yes, financial abundance for my clients. So, today I’m sharing my recipe for manifesting anything!
How To Manifest Financial Abundance
My first thought after reading this book was how comforting it was to me. Almost like a parent scooping you up in a hug and saying "It's going to be alright. I've got your back. Here is what we are going to do." I know that may sound silly, but I got more out of this book than any religious type of thing, philosophy etc. (and I'm not religious in the traditional sense). After life's normal trials and tribulations in the past, what I took away from it was like a big clue or door opening into how all of life, both present, future and beyond, works. Gives detailed exercises (& a lot of them) to do/put into practice to get the Law of Attraction (aka LOA) into action working in your life AND how to get rid of the negative things, habits or thinking in your life. So it's not just a "philosophy", but a" how to" book as well. At least it spoke to me in terms that resonated.

Opportunities, gifts and blessings come to me quickly and in the most unexpected ways. It's amazing to watch the Universe deliver my goals and desires so easily. I highly recommend his techniques to experience the abundance that is there for all of us once we have the tools to move beyond obstacles and live in gratitude and resonance with Source."

Although not concrete evidence that thoughts are capable of manifesting desires or even being capable of travel in waves through space and time, the messages within literally all religious literature still give plenty of food for thought. Even buddhism constantly stresses the importance of right thinking due to the fact that thoughts create reality as you can see by these 2 quotes:
Make a list of ten things you like about yourself. It can be anything-- your hair, your mathematical ability, your taste in music. The ten things can be significant or trivial. It doesn't matter, so long as you truly believe them. Once the list is in place, you should think about each of those things, and acknowledge that there is legitimate worth in having each one of those qualities.
If you are an angry person, you will attract other angry people to sit around and talk about the messed-up world. You’ll attract scenarios that perpetuate your anger. If you’re a fearful person, you will likely attract other people who share your fears as well as situations that prove the world isn’t a safe place. If you have a belief that people cannot be trusted, you’ll attract events in your life that demonstrate all the myriad ways in which people are untrustworthy.
Another way to release the past is to get rid of old stuff you don't need. Sometimes, things we've had with us during negative times in our life pick up negative energy. Other changes to your living space can help prepare you for the future. For example, if you want to attract love, you'll want to leave space in your bed by moving stuffed animals out of the way and put away any photos or belongings of your ex. Out with the old, in with the new!
