Thanks for the comment Timetothink, That's funny because I live in Thailand, while my mother lives in the Uk and a very similar thing happens with us. Our connection seems to occur in dreams though, and occasionally while awake as it does with you and your mother. I would go as far as to say that should we find an effective training method and stick to it rigidly for as long as it takes, we would be able to communicate, manifest, heal etc etc.
You claim that "positive thoughts always resulting in positive things" is not the basis of the LOA. In part you are correct. The foundational basis in science, as I alluded to in the article was that thought stuff particles travel through ether (not air) and interact with formless stuff to create whatever it is that you are thinking about. This was how "the law" started.
