<>But the one who really first articulated the Law as general principle was Prentice Mulford. Mulford, a pivotal figure in the development of New Thought thinking, discusses the Law of Attraction at length in, for example, his essay "The Law of Success",[15] published 1886-1887. In this, Mulford was followed by other New Thought authors, such as Henry Wood (starting with his God’s Image in Man,[16] 1892), and Ralph Waldo Trine (starting with his first book, What All the World's A-Seeking,[17] 1896). For these authors, the Law of Attraction is concerned not only about health but every aspect of life.[18][19]
<>“One simple and fun way in which I trust the Universe is using random play on my iPod- and I’m not joking. I find that the Universe’s choice of music (or spoken inspirational recordings) is always far more apt than my choice. And so since hearing about Esther and Jerry Hick’s (the Teachings of Abraham) relationship beginnings, and how they were clearly brought together (and when they compared histories, they realised they were in so many states and cities at the same time- showing that the Universe was constantly attempting to bring them together without their effort), I decided to apply this same idea of trusting the Universe for my relationship. And so I did processes. Within days of absolutely giving up on trying (which meant giving up on whenever I went out with friends immediately scanning the room for potential partners, thinking about my soul mate many times during the day and other forms of searching, despite telling myself and all my friends I was perfectly happy being single and letting it all unfold naturally!), I walked into a cafe I had been in so many times and immediately, naturally found myself within a conversation with one of the staff I had seen but never spoken to. We talked, exchanged telephone numbers… and who knows?! And who cares. Because for the first time I won’t be checking my phone every 5 minutes- I honestly don’t care if he calls or not- the fact is, I now understand that my ‘figuring it out’ way doesn’t work – the Universe knows better than I do. This is the first time I’ve exchanged numbers with anyone significant in about 6 months. And all from a couple of days of truly surrendering! And before the day was over, I was surprisingly contacted by someone I used to really like and then met another very eligible man.”
<>Ever notice how travel magazines show a beautiful destination, maybe a white sand beach and azure blue sky? And, there is always a table and empty chair. Your mind is attracted to the empty chair. It wants you to be there. Goals are the same. The law of attraction is energised by the gap between here and there. So long as it is bridgeable (see tip 21).
<>I am so excited. Today is my first day of my 21 day journey to attract a specific person into my life. Yesterday I spent the day mentally preparing myself for this journey. I cleaned out my space and room to give me even more of a peace of mind. I also completed some mundane tasks that I had to in order to ensure my highest vibration. (Don’t want life’s minutiae to bring me down :)) Today was a great day to say the least. Better than I thought my first day was going to be. I did have a brief moment of doubt and a pang of negativity halfway through the day. I am aware of it and can only improve on it tomorrow. Really interesting side note though. I had one of the best days professionally. My boss took me aside and told me how smart I was and offered me more positions. I got repeated complements about my looks for coworkers and others. It was a great day! I know that this is long but I hope someone reads it. I really want the universe to know what it has done for me.
<>And then, sometimes I think that the current relationship will eventually end in some way if the person working consciously with LOA makes such dramatic shifts that she and her current partner are just too far away from each other vibrationally. This could definitely happen without your ending it specifically–the other person could end it, it could be mutual and amicable, something could happen that creates a large rift and you both can’t see a way to move past it, or you may decide to end it and it won’t feel as scary as it may currently because you just know it is the right thing to do. I don’t think being unhappy with a relationship as it currently is now is an absolute sign that it is not right..ultimately, it depends on so many individual factors, and as the person doing the LOA work gets deeper and more in touch with what is happening, she will have a sense of what she really wants and how she thinks it will play out. It does take a degree of honesty that can feel a bit uncomfortable, but necessary.
<>This step is important because those competing signals can be quite strong. Weaken the signal or change the direction of those thoughts like this: Approach those feelings with the love and compassion that you would feel towards a lonely, small child or a hurt animal. When you love yourself, you open up the possibility to receive your greatest desires, and you begin to only desire the things that are best for you.
<>“I printed off the photo you have on the Law of Attraction Centre website of the NV Buildings in Manchester and every day at breakfast I used to sit and look at it and imagine how it would feel to live in those apartments, within a month my partner moved into an apartment and when he drove me to his new home, I had told him the story of how I wanted to stay in these particular apartments and when we arrived to his new home to my shock it was the block right next to them.
<>“The other morning I was in a restaurant, feeling fantastic, and having a laugh with the guy serving me- and, all part of the playfulness, he put five loyalty cards stamps when I ‘should’ have had just one. I seem to get treated like a star wherever I go – out shopping later I had people offer to carry my bags in two different stores. But it wasn’t always like this; your techniques have freed me to a total fresh start at life; I thought I knew ‘this stuff’ inside and out but your practical work showed me what was missing… And changes are almost more than I imagined, things are going so well. I can honestly say 2012 has been the best year of my life- and much of it is thanks to discovering The Law of Attraction Centre. I’ve had a major shift in the area of relationships- my dates are more frequent and a lot more ‘my-type’… And I get on so much better with my family. I look and feel younger: someone the other week told me I looked 11 years younger than I am and asked me what was my secret. Also, a new business idea has manifested and now creates a good profit. Your work is priceless – thank you for being such examples of what you teach. Can’t wait for 2013. What I love about the Law of Attraction is it is a Law, and once you get it, you can apply it to all areas of your life.”
<>Rhonda Byrne published in 2006 the film The Secret wherein she emphasized thinking about what each person wants to obtain, but also to infuse the thought with the maximum possible amount of emotion. She claims the combination of thought and feeling is what attracts the desire.[27] The Secret says your subconscious mind can control everything that happens around you, including both positive experiences, like having someone call you from miles away, and negative experiences, like death. The Byrne underlines the power of the subconscious mind by asking the reader to take full control of these thoughts, in order to achieve things in life, with the mind, as much as with action. Another similar book is James Redfield's The Celestine Prophecy, which says reality can be manifested by man.[28] Man and the universe have a force of attraction between them similar to a magnetic attraction. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy, says readers can achieve seemingly impossible goals by learning how to bring the mind itself under control. The Power by Rhonda Byrne, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle are similar. While personal testimonies claim the secret and the law to have worked for them, a number of skeptics have criticized Rhonda Byrne's film and book. The New York Times Book Review called the secret pseudoscience and an "illusion of knowledge".[29]
<>Another issue that really causes resistance in the realm of relationships is finding love is so incredibly important to us. We are really attached to this manifestation; we are terrified of being alone, and it never happening. It is hard to just sit back and relax, knowing the Universe has got this. We are constantly noticing our single status, and lamenting it.
<>Try touching the ground with your bare feet, feeling the grass on your hands, smelling the flowers, and getting beyond passive with nature. I could write a book on why this is beneficial to the human condition, and I will be posting an article shortly, but in the meantime here’s a cool article to get you started: 8 Ways To Stay Connected To Earth’s Natural Healing Frequencies
<>Again, we can only attract that to which we are currently a match, so this means we can’t wait to feel better about our lives until what we want comes. You have to make peace with your single status. You have to start finding ways to feel happy about your life now as it is. This doesn’t mean pretending to like things you don’t, but diligently working on adopting a perspective that actually makes you feel better. It is about focusing on the things in your life that are good, and building on that energy. It is about making time to do things that make you feel good, that help produce the feelings you think you would get from being in a relationship.
<>You are one of a kind and you have a unique spiritual fingerprint. A unique abundance DNA. The universe just wants you to recognize and own your uniqueness. Then you can have anything you want because you’ll stop doing things the way you think you should. You’ll know without blinking that you’re the best in the world at being you. And that’s more than enough to attract an extraordinary and abundant life for you and for those you love.
<>I could never have any direct interaction with guys before when I had a lot of resistance about love but after I experienced some contrasts, I could manifest the guy that I could run into yesterday. But it didn’t go exactly as I anticipated. I was so surprised I couldn’t handle it properly I guess. And I kind of beat myself up over it yesterday and then I stumbled upon this posting today.
<>“My mum was visiting and wanted to tour some of London. I had not made any plans. In fact, I was rushed and feeling a little bit out of alignment and wanted to recuperate rather than be a tour guide. But she was on her way, and I wanted us both to have a good time. And so I did my Universe List, asking for more faith and belief from the angels, to show me I was loved and guided at all times. I also asked that the day go smoothly. My mum said she wanted to go up the fire of London monument, to see the views of the City. Although we were both hungry and ready for lunch, we got straight on a bus as we had a tight schedule. I had forgotten the exact location of our destination and was stressed at this point, so I closed my eyes and asked to be uplifted and to be elevated into a good mood. I opened my eyes and noticed it was time to get off. I turned a corner and there in front of us was not the monument- but St Paul’s Cathedral. I noticed that there was a viewing platform very high up above the dome- and I imagined it was probably higher than the monument. I suggested this to my mum and in the same moment I heard someone call my name. It was a friend from the Law of Attraction processes group, who happened to be working at St Paul’s. She was eating lunch and had lots of food to spare, which she offered us. So we ate, and then she ushered us in. The first place she took us was the famous “Light of the World” painting by William Holman Hunt, depicting that spirit is always there for us- we just need to ‘open the door’ and let it in. This was the most perfect metaphor for my earlier question of wanting more faith and belief. I felt loved and guided, my faith was increased. My friend gave us a tour around the cathedral. And when we got up to the viewing platform, with its breath-taking view- I noticed that monument was far down below us. Then we left, discovering a wonderful museum ‘by chance’ and had a fantastic day full of many more synchronicities.”
<>“I hadn’t dated anyone properly for over ten years – and I felt like I was a lost cause! However, having heard some of the inspiring stories through your workshop, I relaxed into the possibility that change could happen for me (because at first it just didn’t seem possible). I followed the guidance about which technique to do at which time – I meditated daily – and over the space of about two months, I began to noticeably feel better consistently. I began to let loose of my ‘love’ obsession and began enjoying what I already had. I started to do better in my career too, taking more care of my appearance and gravitating towards exercise. And then, through work, seemingly ‘out of the blue’, I met someone special – and it’s a very healthy and supportive relationship, exactly what I always wanted.”

<>Thanks so much for sharing your story. I felt the same way when I first heard about LOA but then I looked at my life and could clearly see how it had negatively affected my life automatically (I thought I was broke, I acted like I was broke, and I was broke). So I figured I had nothing to lose! 4 years later it’s TOTALLY transformed my life and I’ve manifested 2 vision boards and a brand new life. IT WORKS!
<>We already know that the Law of Attraction can be used effectively… and the positive impact that embracing the law and replacing all negative emotions with positive mind-affirmations can have on what you see in your life. However, there are several common traps that people can fall into when they are trying to apply the rules of attraction to their love lives.
<>“I have been meditating regularly for several months now and also doing the written Law of Attraction exercises and several positive things have happened. One positive change that has happened is that I wanted to have a different manager at work. I kept focusing on this and even though I spoke with different people and sent some emails it didn’t initially seem possible. However, I stayed positive and focused on what I wanted and I now have a new manager. I have also been having more and more experiences of being fully in the present instant, in which I feel completely relaxed and fulfilled and I attribute this to my mind having become clearer through my meditation practice. Finally, I was recently on holiday and the trip went smoothly which I felt was a result of my connection. This included all of my travel arrangements going to plan and getting a hire car even when a lady working at my hotel told me that there weren’t any available with any of the hire car companies as they were all booked out.”
<>For example, if you’re looking to create more income or manifest a big payday, you need to plan around that expectation. Imagine when someone tells you that they’re coming to visit and they’ll be staying at your house in the guest bedroom. You plan your life in accordance with that expected outcome. You prepare the bedroom, clean the house, wash the sheets, and so on.
<>Some people begin to see things happen immediately, while others take a little more time. The key here is patience and persistence. As soon as doubt or fear start to creep back in, return to Step 2 and address it. If you have lost touch with your clear intention, revert to Step 1. If your belief in the Law of Attraction lags, go back to Step 3. If all else fails, repeat Step 4 every day until it becomes a reality!
<>I know this can sound like a tall order. We are so conditioned to basing how we feel on outside events. It is easy to feel good when something happens that gives us a reason to—cultivating warm, fuzzies in the absence (or what we perceive to be the absence) of something to be happy about can take a bit of work. Feeling good even if things happen that you don’t like can take some practice. Living reactively will really put a damper on the attraction process, and it is a habit that needs to be addressed.
<>When we decide that what we want must come in a certain way–like wanting the relationship to be with a specific person for example–that is trying to control the ‘how’ and this can create blocks that prevent what we want from coming in. So long as you hold that intention to let love in, and you are working on your energy, you will attract things that give you these same feelings–it may be him, or it may be someone else. But the bottom line is that it will feel good, and you will be happy. When we are still attached to a specific person, it is easy to think that only they can give us these feelings, and someone else wouldn’t be as good. So, I would say keep doing what you are doing, but don’t put too much focus on trying to attract a specific person.
<>As for losing faith in the Universe, that phrasing suggests you are applying ‘humanness’ to this force, and looking at it as something that makes decisions, rewards people,etc… It implies you are waiting for it to give you something. It is much more mechanical than that..it is neutral. It can only reflect back to us our predominant beliefs and feelings–it can’t deliver something because we are a good person, or are trying really hard,etc.. Think of it as a computer–input,output.
<>Sometimes this can be the hardest part of the Law of Attraction to grasp because when there's a person we love or are attracted to, he/she is all we can think about. We think the solution is in using the Law of Attraction to get the person to love us or notice us. But the Law of Attraction is about you – your thoughts, your feelings, and your vibration.
