In this article, we will clarify on whether or not the Law of Attraction is a scam.
The quick answer is yes. The right answer is no.
Ever since “The Secret came along millions of manifesters have spawned thanks to that one book.
I bought the book during my first semester of college. Life was pretty rough back then. Was looking for a way to fix my problems. Then I found The Secret.
I was excited to read a book that seems like it could offer me what I wasn’t able to provide to myself. At the time I thought of it as a “mini Bible.” Both the Bible and The Secret share a lot of things in common. But, they both use different ways of explaining the concepts.
The premise is essentially if you learn how to use your mind you will be able to manifest all your desires at will.
So I did what most people did after reading The Secret which was to think, think, think all day. Not just thoughts, but “positive words” that I believed might aid in my ability to get what I wanted.
But, no matter how positive I remained my desires alluded me. And I was greatly disappointed. I didn’t understand why manifesting was so difficult.
Until one day,
I picked up an ebook called Mental Alchemy by one of my great buddies, George Hutton. That wasn’t the only book that helped me grasp the concept, though. Many of the works by Joesph Murphy(ie: Laws of Mind) help to clarify things.
After reading Mental Alchemy it all started to make sense. The conscious is the chooser. The thoughts we think in the present moment. The subconscious is like a giant computer that stores all your data. What kind of data? All your past experiences, memories, decision, etc. The subconscious control 90% of our thinking and the conscious controls 10% of our thinking.
So, when we try to make changes we are using our conscious mind to fix our conscious mind. And this here is the recipe for disaster.
If our subconscious mind rules 90% of our mind then doesn’t it make more sense to fix the subconscious instead? Why yes, of course. But the issue is…It’s going to take a lot longer to fix your subconscious mind. If you want to start fixing the subconscious, you do so, now!
Why does it take longer to fix the subconscious mind? Your subconscious is everything you have done up until this day. All the memories you have stored are within you right now as we speak.
So going back to is The Secret a scam, I think you are starting to realize why the answer is not so simple. The Secret is a scam if you don’t fully understand the laws of mind. The Secret is a reverse engineer formula on how to use the mind to attract anything. It’s a macro blueprint, but they can’t exactly tell you what thoughts to have.
The law of attraction is meant to teach you the structure and components of the way the mind works. When you understand how the mind works then it will all seem like magic. But, like any skill it can be developed and harnessed. You have just consider whether this is a skill you’d like to learn. Because once you decide your subconscious mind will back you up in your decision.
And as you just let that soak in a little…
Let’s slow down so much has been covered.
Okay, let’s get back on track. The law of attraction is teaching you the structure of how to use your mind. It is a skill. And like any skill, it can be improved on.
I remember back in the day when I couldn’t manifest a single penny to save my life. I am serious, flies were coming out of my pockets. It was that bad!
And now money is drawn to me like a magnet. Everywhere I go the universe is giving me guidance. Woah, I am starting to sound like one of them esoteric quacks. Dammit did they get me too?!
One of the most popular sayings in the law of attraction is ” If you believe, you shall receive.” Hold up that seems familiar *insert biblical reference here.*
Why do people struggle so much if they believe? It’s because they don’t REALLY believe. They are just acting as if. Nothing wrong with this, in fact, the law of attraction encourages you to act as if to prepare one for their good. It brings you to a greater state of mind-body.
In order for them to teach you how to manifest they have to use words. Words can be a bit clumsy to learn from at times. As we all have our own unique way of looking out at the world. So, when we learning something in this case the law of attraction we have to use their “model.” Which means we have to read their book using our brain with a brain created. The end result, is it will take time to fully grasp the law of attraction and how to actualize your desires. But, you can do it make no mistake about it.
All things are possible with he/she who that believes!
Never give up and allow yourself plenty of time and space to work with yourself and the universe to manifest the life you want.
So is the law of attraction a scam? No, but it’s a skill that takes a while to master. Especially with the confusion in the beginning. But like riding a book you fell down a few times and you got just got back up with an eagerness to try again.
