Is The Law of Attraction Just a Theory?

by: John Peace

In understanding the Law of Attraction, we come to realize that we attract into our lives whatever we give our Attention, Energy and Focus to. Whether wanted or unwanted.

That with synchronicity, we attract from the outside what we resonate with, on the inside, bringing into our life what we momentarily strongly focus upon.

In other words that by having an optimistic attitude and focusing on success, one attracts these, while having a cynical depressed attitude attracts negative experiences.

Could this be true?

During my introduction to the Law of Attraction, I needed to make a shift to the positive; I'd surely had enough negative experience to last a lifetime. Before to long my life carried on staying the same, bills, debt, more bills, more debt, you get the picture.

What was happening?

Understanding the Law of Attraction principles was not a problem, I focused on the positive, and all I was getting was the same old deal.

We are told that we need faith, we need to believe and be grateful and this elusive Law of Attraction will kick in.

Great, I had the answer, say thank you to everyone and all would be OK!

The postman got a thank you for not bringing a bill, the trolley boy at the supermarket got one for leaving a trolley out for me, so did the checkout girl because there was no queue, I thanked the ATM machine, the bank manager, the kid on the bike, my computer, the cooker, heck I must be the most grateful person on the planet, this Law of Attraction ain't going turn me down.

After a few days of this everything started to go wrong, you guessed it, the postman brought a bill, the trolley boy left no trolley, the checkout girl left a queue, even the ATM stopped giving me money.

What's going wrong?

What was I missing?

Then those words rang out at me again, in understanding the Law of Attraction process you needed Faith and Belief.

But how could I Believe? This stuff hadn't worked up to now, so how could I believe? Tell me how it works and then I'll Believe,

'You don't need to know, you don't know how electricity works, but you still use it'

But that's not fair! With electricity, I don't need faith, I plug the kettle in and get a steaming cup of coffee, whether I believe it or not.

So the question is, if I focus on the fact that I have little money, bad health, or a poor relationship, how and why does the Law of Attraction respond by giving me more of what I'm focusing on?

And if I shift my focus to the positive how do my desires come true?

And this is the great secret of the secret, in understanding The Law of Attraction and knowing how it works, you'll start to trust it

Trust it and you'll start to believe it. Believe it, and it will start to respond and only then can you start to refine, mould, and create your desired reality.

So How and why does the Law of Attraction, work?

This is not an easy question to answer, arguably the first self-improvement guide that existed, which mentioned, or more accurately referred to the law attraction, was the First Testament. We therefore have to take a Spiritual or Religious view.

So do I argue the existence of a God?

But then again, it is science that has put the law of attraction, back on the modern day table.

So do I argue the fact of science?

You see, throughout history, it has been a battle of science and religion, from astrology to evolution, you could not sit on the fence, were you blinded by science or misguided by religion?

This is a dawn of a new age, where religion will need to embrace its own evolution, and science its spirituality.

Our minds are like parachutes, only functioning properly when fully open, and now is the time to Pull The Cord.

But for many people any consideration to the principles behind the way the Law of Attraction work is a futile exercise unless we can prove this Law.

Is it that the Law of Attraction, is just a theory?

Strictly speaking it is, but there is some confusion between what "theory" means informally, compared to a "theory of science".

In the scientific sense, a theory is a group of general propositions used as principles to explain a condition or phenomena.

So does this mean that the law, Attraction is uncertain?

Not at all, or more accurately speaking, as uncertain as electricity, gravity and evolution.

Ah, I here you say, electricity and gravity are governed by laws!

True, and here's the difference, a theory does not imply lack of certainty, but explains the reason for seeing a result, to our best understanding, a law however, implies that the results we see can be calculated in controlled conditions.

Yes but as a theory, the law, Attraction has no proof!

Ok, but does that make it weak?

Has anything in the physical world ever been proved? Or will it ever be?

In the real world, we must deal with levels of certainty based on evidence. The more and better evidence we have for something, the more certainty we assign to it; when there is enough evidence, we label the something a fact, even though it still isn't 100% certain, or fully understood.

To use proof as an argument against the 'theory' of the law 'Attraction', is ridiculous ... you might as well argue that gravity is a theory, and that we can't assume objects will always fall to the ground, after all it's far from being completely understood.

What the Law Attraction has, is what any good scientific claim has, evidence, and lots of it. A wide range of observations throughout history supports the law Attraction and to challenge the theory, Attraction, you must address that evidence.

You must show that the evidence is either wrong or irrelevant, or that it fits another theory better.

Of course, to do this, you must know both the theory and the evidence.

So what is the evidence of this law Attraction?

One of the most successful self-help books of all time was a 25 year study of success principles documented by Napoleon Hill in his books Law of Success and Think and Grow Rich

Think and Grow Rich Hill refers to the law Attraction as the Secret, which has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy men whom he carefully analyzed over a long period of years.

This secret, the Law of Attraction, was brought to Hill's attention by Andrew Carnegie, asking Hill if he would be willing to spend twenty years or more, taking this principle to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures.

This book contains the secret law Attraction, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people, in almost every walk of life. It was Mr. Carnegie's idea that the magic formula, which gave him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to investigate how men make money, and it was his hope that Hill might test and demonstrate the soundness of the formula through the experience of men and women in every calling.

He believed the formula should be taught in all public schools and colleges, and expressed the opinion that if it were properly taught it would so revolutionize the entire educational system that the time spent in school could be reduced to less than half.

Napoleon Hill analyzed hundreds of well known men, many of whom admitted that they had accumulated their vast fortunes through the aid of the Carnegie secret; among these men were: Ford, Wrigle, Wanamaker, Roosevelt, Hubbard, Wright, Schab, Gillette, Rockefeller, Edison, Woolworth and Bell.

"These names represent but a small fraction of the hundreds of well known Americans whose achievements, financially and otherwise, prove that those who understand and apply the Carnegie secret, reach high stations in life. I have never known anyone who was inspired to use the secret, who did not achieve noteworthy success in his chosen calling. I have never known any person to distinguish himself, or to accumulate riches of any consequence, without possession of the secret. From these two facts I draw the conclusion that the secret is more important, as a part of the knowledge essential for self-determination, than any which one receives through what is popularly known as education."

I do suggest that you read Think and Grow Rich, which you can download from the Law-of-Attraction-Guide Pdf Library. However Hills preceding book, The Law of Success, is a much clearer and concise version, but, an extremely rare book!
