Law of Attraction Collection
With the release of "The Secret", a lot of people are speaking about the Law of Attraction.
The law of attraction is the name given to the belief that "like attracts like" and that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results.
Thomas Troward, who was a strong influence in the New Thought Movement, claimed in The Edinburgh Lectures on Mental Science that thought precedes physical form and that "the action of Mind plants that nucleus which, if allowed to grow undisturbed, will eventually attract to itself all the conditions necessary for its manifestation in outward visible form."
From 1901 to 1912 the English New Thought writer James Allen started to write a series of books and articles. James is best known for writing "As a Man Thinketh" in 1902.
In 1906, William Walker Atkinson (1862–1932) used the phrase in his New Thought Movement book "Thought Vibration" or the "Law of Attraction in the Thought World", stating that "like attracts like." The following year, Bruce MacLelland's published "Prosperity Through Thought Force", in which he summarized the principle, stating: "You are what you think, not what you think you are."
The book "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace D. Wattles espouses similar principles — that truly believing in the object of your desire and focusing onto it will lead to that object or goal being realized on the material plane (Wattles indicates in the Preface and later chapters of this book that his premise stems from the monistic Hindu view that God pervades everything and can deliver what we focus on. In addition, the book also indicates that negative thinking will manifest negative results.
The phrase "law of attraction" appeared in the writings of the Theosophical authors William Quan Judge in the book "Practical Occultism", and in "Popular Lectures on Theosophy" by Annie Besant.
Israel Regardie published many books with the theme of Law of Attraction as one of the prevailing Universal Laws. His book "The Art of True Healing" written in 1937 is fully titled "The Art of True Healing, A Treatise on the Mechanism of Prayer and the Operation of the Law of Attraction in Nature". The book teaches a focused meditation technique to help the mind to learn to heal itself on both a physical and spiritual level. Regardie
goes on to explain that The Law of Attraction is not only a valid method for attracting good physical health but is applicable in the pursuit of any aspect of life you would like to see changed.
Napoleon Hill published two books on this theme. The first was "The Law of Success in 16 Lessons" (1928) which directly and repeatedly referenced the law of attraction and proposed that it operates by use of radio waves transmitted by the brain. Then in 1937, he published "Think and Grow Rich" which went on to become one of the best selling books of all time, selling over 60 million copies. In this book, Hill discusses the importance of controlling one's own thoughts in order to achieve success, as well as the energy that thoughts have and their ability to attract other thoughts.
After this, the book, "Three Magic Words" (1954), by American author, U.S. Anderson became a forerunner to present phase of information on the subconscious mind and the law of attraction.
