Law of attraction

“If thoughts can do that to water, imagine what our thoughts can do to us.”
– from the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know!?

The Law of Attraction teaches that we attract into our lives whatever we focus on. Quantum Physics teaches that nothing is fixed, that there are no limitations, that everything is vibrating Energy. By understanding that everything is Energy in a state of potential and by applying the Law of Attraction to bring into our lives what we focus on, it is never necessary to feel stuck with an undesirable life.

This Energy is influenced by our thoughts. It is shapeable, formable, and moldable. As Creators, we shape, form and mold the Energy of the Universe through our thoughts. We transform the Energy of our thoughts into the Energy of our reality.

The Physics of Possibility. The popular movie, What the Bleep Do We Know!?, clarifies that quantum physics is the physics of possibility. We have been conditioned to believe that the external world is more real than the internal world. Quantum physics says just the opposite. It says that what’s happening on the inside determines what’s happening on the outside. It says that our world is shaped by our thoughts.

Since nothing is fixed and everything is in a state of potential, everything is possible. As we understand that everything is possible, and as we focus our thoughts on what we want to attract, we can literally call into existence whatever we desire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_Attraction

The phrase Law of Attraction, used widely by New Thought writers, refers to the idea that thoughts influence chance. The Law of Attraction argues that thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) can affect things outside the head, not just through motivation, but by other means. Essentially, „if you really want something and truly believe it’s possible, you’ll get it”, but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don’t want means you’ll probably get that too.[1][2]

The Law of Attraction became widely popular after the release of The Secret, a 2006 film by Australian television writer and producer Rhonda Byrne. Byrne followed up the film with a bestselling book of the same title and appeared on a series of talk shows in 2007.

Various scientists have stated that many of the Law’s claims are impossible, violating scientific principles and a scientific understanding of the universe. [3]

Overview

The Secret lists three required steps — „ask, believe, receive” — as the essence of the Law of Attraction:

Step Commentary by Gazette[4] Commentary by Nibbana[5]
Ask Know what you want and ask the universe for it. This is where you need to get clear on what it is you want to create and visualise what you want as being as ‘real’ as possible.
Believe Feel and behave as if the object of your desire is on its way. Focus your thoughts and your language on what it is you want to attract. You want to feel the feeling of really ‘knowing’ that what you desire is on its way to you, even if you have to trick yourself into believing it – do it.
Receive Be open to receiving it. Pay attention to your intuitive messages, synchronicities, signs from the Universe to help you along the way as assurance you are on the ‘right’ path. As you align yourself with the Universe and open yourself up to receiving, the very thing you are wanting to manifest will show up.

Thinking of what one does not have, they say, manifests itself in not having, while if one abides by these principles, and avoids „negative” thoughts, the universe will manifest a person’s desires.[4]

Skeptical Inquirer magazine criticised the lack of falsifiability and testability of these claims [6]. Critics have asserted that the evidence provided is usually anecdotal and that, because of the self-selecting nature of the positive reports, as well as the subjective nature of any results, these reports are susceptible to confirmation bias and selection bias.[7]

Physicist Ali Alousi, for instance, criticized it as unmeasurable and questioned the likelihood that thoughts can affect anything outside the head.[1]

As physical hypothesis

Others have questioned the references to modern scientific theory, and have maintained, for example, that the Law of Attraction misrepresents the electrical activity of brainwaves.[8] Victor Stenger and Leon Lederman are critical of attempts to use quantum physics to bridge any unexplained or seemingly implausible effects, believing these to be traits of modern pseudoscience.[9][10][11] Writing in the New York Times, Virginia Heffernan characterised The Secret as „a series of misquotations … and fraudulent maxims” that nonetheless „takes [her] to a happy place.”[6]

As principle in Quantum mechanics

Main article: Quantum mind/body problem

Some interpretations of the Law of Attraction place it in a quantum physics framework. According to proponents of this law, thoughts have an energy which attracts whatever it is the person is thinking of.[1] This concept has not gained broad acceptance within the scientific community.[12].

In health science

Main article: Neural top down control of physiology

The principles of the law of attraction have also been interpreted in the realm of medicine and illness. The law of attraction has some parallels with the Placebo effect. In 1990, Bernie Siegel published a book, Love, Medicine and Miracles, which asserted that the threat of disease was related to a person’s imagination, will, and belief.[7][improper synthesis?] Siegel primarily advocated „love” as the source of healing and longevity stating that „if you want to be immortal, love someone.”[13][14] Siegel’s description has been rejected by some from within the medical community.[15]

Personal responsibility

Robert Sapolsky, a professor and neuroendocrinologist, devoted a chapter in his book, Why Zebras Don’t Get Ulcers, to Siegel. Sapolsky refers to Siegel’s general idea as „benign gibberish” but is particularly critical of what he sees as blaming patients for their illness, based only on anecdotal evidence[16]. Sapolsky sums up his primary criticism as follows:

Where the problems become appallingly serious is when Siegel concentrates on the main point of his book. No matter how often he puts in the disclaimers saying that he’s not trying to make people feel guilty, the book’s premise is that (a) cancer can be caused by psychosocial factors in the person; (b) cancer (or any other disease, as far as I can tell) is curable if the patient has sufficient courage, love and spirit; (c) if the patient is not cured, it is because of the insufficient amounts of those admirable traits. As we have just seen, this is not how cancer works, and a physician simply should not go about telling seriously ill people otherwise.[16]

21st century

In 2006, a film entitled The Secret (2006) based on the „Law of Attraction” was released and then developed into a book of the same title in 2007. The movie and book gained widespread attention in the media from Saturday Night Live to The Oprah Winfrey Show in the United States.[1] The same year the Hicks’ The Law Of Attraction was on the New York Times best seller list.[32]

The success of the film and various books led to increased media coverage. Oprah Winfrey devoted two episodes of her show to discussing the film and the law of attraction.[33] Talk show host Larry King also discussed it on his show but criticized it for several reasons. He pointed to the sufferings in the world and asked: „If the Universe manifests abundance at a mere thought, why is there so much poverty, starvation, and death?”[citation needed]

King’s remark is similar[improper synthesis?] to a criticism that the law of attraction only works because most of the anecdotes cited in books and movies are about people who live in a culture that has paths to allow people to overcome adversity, while this is not true for much of the world.[1]

My Conclusion:

Try it on yourself! Find the things that work for you. Maybe you don’t agree 100% with the theory, but for sure it can have some good parts.

Rhetorical Question:

If these theories are all bulls**hit, then why so many people apply them, have some results, why the need for praying, meditating, or other mental activities, then why so many years of research on this subject?! If all this is pure fantasy…

Note to myself:

Starting with today I will find a  new term for problems, every new problem won’t be a problem anymore, will be just another “unexpected event” so I will treat the “problem” / “unexpected event” like a task to be resolved in my terms and conditions, without restrictions from outside. From my experience there is no URGENT, DEADLINE, UNDOABLE, MISTAKE and so one.
