The Laws of Attraction – In short

The Laws of Attraction – In short

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.

The Law of Attraction says that which is like unto itself is drawn. 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.

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. Instead, the Law may be explained as an illusion created by the conection between self confidence and success or ones own perception, like the placebo effect.

What do you think? Is it for real or is it all in the mind? What is your take on Universal laws?

  4. It is like opposites attracts for love. Its on nature and force of the universe. The system itself has succeeded in sustaining itself. And has successfully evolved through this attraction. So its in nature and we are part of it.
