My Take On The Law Of Attraction
I was first introduced to this concept when a mentor of mine recommended a very special book to me , it is called "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace.D.Wattles. In his book Wattles introduced me to a number of what I would call Radical( in my mind anyway ) thoughts. Throughout his book Wattles main theme is the scientific fact that "Thoughts become Things" and he sums this up with the following statement:-
"There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in it's original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
You can form things in your thought, and by impressing your thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing you think about to be created".
Now, when I first read that I thought wow!!, all I have to do is think about something and it becomes reality, but of course it isn't quite as simple as that is it?. Thoughts become things is why there is a law of attraction. Thoughts become things is the first principal, and the good news for me was that the way it was phrased meant I could immediately see how I fitted into the equation and understood that I am ( as is everybody ) an effortless creator in control of choosing my own thoughts.
Now of course it would be easy to say that thinking about something brings it into reality, but of course the literal interpretation of that would be like saying you could manifest into your possession for example,1 million dollars, just by thinking it. Although that would be fantastic if it was true, it would go against the physical laws and a lot of momentum that we have all come to know and trust. However on reading this material and studying other Law of Attraction experts I discovered something even more fantastic, instead of manifesting these things directly out of the ether, once you have a clear picture of something - anything - in your mind there is an instantaneous attraction working within physical laws and cooperating with your beliefs and expectations of whatever you are thinking about (as well as with those who would be affected by your manifestations) , hence the law of attraction.
Before you decide that the previous statement does not ring true, think about this, how many items and products do you own?, probably hundreds if you take all of your items of clothing into consideration, now how many of your possessions do you think just "came about" out of the blue?, I can tell you......... none of them!, you see everything you have and see around you, first started out as a thought in somebody's mind, e.g. the chair you are sitting on, the clothes your are wearing, the car you drive, the PC or Mac you are reading this article with, all of these, without exception started out as an idea in the mind of the originator.
If we now go back to the earlier statement by Wattles, the truth behind this is the now direct link between what was originally known as "New Age Thinking" and quantum physics. The link is this, for hundreds if not thousands of years the worlds most powerful and knowledgeable people have known that everything is made from the same "stuff" and that "stuff" is Energy, now I am not going to go into a full explanation of energy and it's relation to us as beings, but what I can say is this, Quantum physics has now established that our thoughts have an energy and life force all of their own, which can literally rearrange the circumstances and individuals of our lives and therefore predisposes us to what many people would call "accidents", "coincidences" & "serendipities" that will yield our manifestations.
Therefore you can see, that in this way our thoughts do literally ( but not immediately ) become our reality. The really great thing about this is, that as soon as you realise it you can begin to design your life by thinking only the thoughts that you choose, and the more you do this the easier it becomes, you are an effortless creator because you effortlessly think, and the easiest way to understand this is to look at your current circumstances, as these are a result of the thoughts you have already had.
So decide today and become more aware of what you are thinking, because once you do this, it is the start of something amazing.
