The law of attraction has been mentioned widely in the world, both off line and on line. The law of attraction is one of the hottest issues in the internet. You can see this issue in every forum, every article directories, and every chat room. Why is it so popular? The reason is simple. What the law offers matches the needs of the public. People want to know more and make use of it. Does it really work? This article will talk what Law of Attraction is and how it works.

The Law of Attraction is commonly associated with new idea theories. It states people experience the corresponding manifestations of their predominant thoughts, feelings, words, and actions and that people therefore have direct control over reality and their lives through thought alone. A person's thoughts (conscious and unconscious), emotions, beliefs and actions are said to attract corresponding positive and negative experiences. It is believed that the thought brings result through the resonance of their energetic vibration. Many proponents of the idea claim that with practice a person can use the law of attraction to change their lives. However, the idea has received intense criticism from multiple circles in the media, the scientific community.

Believers allege that the statement by Buddha, "What you have become is the result of what you have thought", is an expression of the idea that thoughts introduced into reality can attract like energy. In Hebrew Scripture, Proverbs 23:7 states: "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he." It is also often alleged that the same idea can be found in beliefs as ancient as Hinduism. In the West, the idea of "positive thinking" became popular during the 19th century. One of the earliest known formulations of the ideas now known as the Law of Attraction is contained in the 1906 book Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World by William Atkinson, editor of New Thought magazine. Dozens of books in the first half of the 20th century addressed the topic under various names of "positive thinking" and the "Law of Attraction."

In March 2006 a film named "The Secret" was developed around the "Law of Attraction", and was later developed into a book by the same name. The movie and book have been selling at a tremendous pace and have gained widespread attention across the media from Saturday Night Live and Operah in the United States.

Proponents of the modern 'Law of Attraction' claim that it has roots in Quantum Physics. According to the 'law of attraction', thoughts have an energy that attracts like energy. In order to control this energy, proponents claim people must practice four things:

1. Know what one desires and ask the universe for it. (The "universe" is mentioned broadly, stating that it can be anything from God to an unknown source of energy)

2. Focus one's thought upon the thing desired with great feeling such as enthusiasm or gratitude.

3. Feel and behave as if the object of one's desire is on its way.

4. Be open to receiving it.

The Law of Attraction is now known universally and becomes obsession of the large group of people. Yet not so many people understand the real concept of the law. This article talks about the essence of the Law of Attraction.
