“What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve. We have been given both the power to imagine and outcome, and the means to achieve it.”
– Napoleon Hill
The Law of Attraction has been a subject of undisputed interest and controversy between psychologists, New Thought representatives and public figures for many years, raising spiritual awareness and gaining countless followers who now acknowledge its immense impact on the quality of thoughts and the refinement of daily living. The core philosophy behind such a reconstructive paradigm is the New Thought idea that “like attracts like”, therefore by focusing its interest upon the positive or negative aspects of a matter, the person invites the experience of its choice into manifestation, whether positive or negative.
As both the mental and the material world are channeling “pure energy”, the polarity and intensity of our thoughts will attract such conditions of compatible Frequency, in accordance with our belief system and predominant attitude.
“Determine resolutely to expect only what you desire, then you will attract only what you wish for.”
– Ralph Trine, In Tune with The Infinite
Despite criticism and skepticism in regards to the lack of falsifiability and testability of the Law of Attraction, proving its validity through applied sciences is of no interest in this presentation, but rather another proof of how the mind should work positively free in order to accommodate the divine blessings of spirituality. Just like God, the possibilities of proving this law as effective are infinite.
The core claim of New Thought adepts is that the quality of our thoughts can and will affect the status of our health – thinking about wellness and love can significantly improve any condition or even cure illness. This fact is self evident in scientific studies which involve the Placebo effect.
The same principle is applicable for the financial aspects of life – consistently thinking prosperous thoughts, irrespective of its actual situation, a person will experience prosperity in the future based on the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction proponents also claim that if an individual focuses on another person’s qualities in relationships then they will experience more of those accordingly. The power of visualization and affirmation will also pave the path for achieving the desired outcomes – love, health, abundance and success. Please note I have focused on presenting only the positive aspects of making anything happen as this is the only option which suits me personally. Please be aware that the object of your attention will manifest interdimensionally therefore stick to bright side as we have both Love and cookies👀

“Thought will lead to action, action will develop methods, methods will develop friends, and friends will bring about circumstances, and, finally, the third step, or Materialization, will have been accomplished.”
– Charles Haanel, The Master Key System
The supremacy of Mind over Matter concept which is promoted through the Law of Attraction effectiveness also relates to Bible verses the New Thought ideoligists often quote, such as Mark 11:24: “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Based on my life experience, I find this affirmation undeniably true.
“The key to seeing the world’s soul, and in the process wakening our own, is to get over the confusion by which we think that fact is real and imagination is illusion.” ― Thomas Moore, Original Self: Living with Paradox and Originality
“The more we delve into quantum mechanics the stranger the world becomes; appreciating this strangeness of the world, whilst still operating in that which you now consider reality, will be the foundation for shifting the current trajectory of your life from ordinary to extraordinary. It is the Tao of mixing this cosmic weirdness with the practical and physical, which will allow you to move, moment by moment, through parallel worlds to achieve your dreams.” ― Kevin Michel, Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams
“The mind has a definite way of clothing one’s thoughts in appropriate physical equivalents. Think in terms of poverty and you will live in poverty. Think in terms of opulence and you will attract opulence. Through the eternal law of harmonious attraction, one’s thoughts always clothe themselves in material things appropriate unto their nature.” ― Napoleon Hill, You Can Work Your Own Miracles
“Grateful souls focus on the happiness and abundance present in their lives and this in turn attracts more abundance and joy towards them.” ― Stephen Richards, Think Your way to Success: Let Your Dreams Run Free
“We need more than just the Law of Attraction. We need to connect with its more successful twin, the Law of Generosity. And further entwine ourselves with their parent; the Law of Love.” ― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience
