In mastering Islam and the Law of Attraction, it is important to remember that our feelings are indications of our thoughts, which are the results of our beliefs and our paradigms. The Secret reveals amazing real life stories of regular people who have changed their lives in profound ways.
This seems to me about as logical (comparing very great things with little) as to say it was no use in Newton showing laws of attraction of gravity & consequent movements of the Planets, because he could not show what the attraction of Gravity is». The science is interesting but upon first learning about the Law of Attraction, I did not really believe it but I don't blame the author for trying to reinforce our belief to increase our faith in this method of achieving one's goals.
Wow… I'm guessing you're a regular practitioner of the law of attraction. Well, thats a million dollars question and has not been answered on internet by many people, but at the same time its quite contemporary question amoung the people from Law of attraction lobby.
The first article about this was in Psychology Today - Throw Away Your Vision Board” After a quarter million hits and much hate mail, I wanted to make sure that I had a thorough LOA understanding so I read every book from the originators of the law in the late 1800s and became a certified Advanced Practitioner of the Law of Attraction” by one of the authors of "The Secret." I then wrote Throw Away Your Vision Board 2” This time the feedback was a little more positive.
And even if, if the law of attraction is really nonsense, we, the believers” can say on our last day that we've lived a great life, because one rule of thumb is be happy now!” By the way: the law of attraction doesn't say you can change a letter in an enveloppe to a check… there might come another letter, at a later moment, with that check you wanted.
It encapsulates the idea that all the particles of matter in the universe attract each other through the force of gravity - Newton's law tells us how strong that attraction website is. The equation says that the force (F) between two objects is proportional to the product of their masses (m1 and m2), divided by the square of the distance between them.
Thinking positive and visualising great exam results, or a new job without putting in the work and taking action is missing the point. I believe that The Law of Attraction works but It takes time and effort as well. For those who try it with open mind intentionally, it will work and those who do not believe, still it will work unintentionally because what you give (in the form of your thoughts), you receive (in the form of your future life experiences).
The law of attraction originated in the 19th century movement known as the New Thought movement An early proponent of the idea was William Walker Atkinson (1862-1932), who attributed his recovery from various physical, psychological, and financial disasters to the power of belief.
I never asked for anything with the snap of my fingers I was realistic as well as hard working towards my goal while staying positive and not putting to much energy into it. I know there are a lot of self help books, movies, quotes etc… but I never looked into them and they were never my inspiration.
I think it has a positive effect on the user's life: like attracts like, and positive thinking can have a huge impact on the user's life. And it is these book-experiences that save him an ample amount of time, energy and money, that he would normally spend learning in the real world.
Sidebar: the Law of Attraction is simply the universal law (or if you prefer, the universal set of principles) which allow us to communicate the divine and send our wishes and desires into the universe in the hope that they will manifest in our lives.
