Thanks so much for the recommendations! I found these on Amazon and ordered them on audio books so I can listen while I drive to work.

Now does this work the same as feng shui and clutter clearing? To open yourself up and rid the negativity in your life. I would love to find a way to reduce my stress and be more open.

Hi Kim,

The Law of Attraction is an internal belief powered by external action. Attraction is based on the belief that everything is made up of energy and your negative or positive energy attracts the same - negative or positive energy.

Some people call it wishful thinking. It's more than wishful thinking, it also involves taking positive action. You believe, without an ounce of doubt, about attracting something positive in your life and then you also take the positive action to help make it reality.

It's positive belief powered by positive action.

I hope that answered your question. Maybe someone else will offer their thoughts too.

Did you see Oprah's show yesterday? It was kind of a follow up to the Secret and featured Louise Hay who has been writing on creating the life you want for over 20 years.

I totally agree, Sharon, that the Law of attraction isn't about wishful thinking! You do use visualization in thinking about your goals, visualizing your life when they come to pass, etc. It's really about deciding what you want in life and focusing on it in a positive way.

One you do that, the ideas and inspirations start flowing to you from the Universe. It's up to you to put them into action.

Kim, there are many good books out there to help you create the life you want. I would recommend anything by Wayne Dyer to get you started. His books literally changed my life.

I am so curious as to how the law of attraction works in areas where the people are starving & in a war zone dying daily. I'm sure they have no control over that!

Sure they can have a strong will, but even that after a while of no food & watching your babies die from cold & starvation stops the mind from holding onto hope.

Does the law of attraction for wealth work only in affluent societies? I know some phrofits & crusaders of the land & people who had the most positive, wealth mindset were killed off by the evil people who thought they got in their way.

Does any one have a answer?

You should read some of the Abraham books that Jerry and Ester Hicks have written. What they say is that it is impossible to make a huge leap in vibrations to help you achieve a better life. Each person does have the power to improve their lives, but they must start from where they are and build. Before you can achieve something, you must first be able to conceive of it as being true for your life.

If you were someone living in the conditions you describe, how could you even envision wealth in the terms we usually associate with it? Without advertising, tV and the internet constantly telling American's what "wealth" is, ie having more and moe possessions, we would probably have a different concept of wealth also.

True wealth has nothing to do with money. To people such as you describe, wealth might be having food to eat at dinner or not seeing your child die from hunger and disease. Money has no meaning in situations such as these.

Perhaps people such as you describe need a prophet or someone to show them a way to a better life. Until they can conceive of it, they may never achieve it.

In the other scenerio you describe, if someone has wealth, then they are killed because of it and someone steals their wealth, how do we not know that this is what they feared would happen? As it says in the Bible "The thing I greatly feared has come upon me." Perhaps it came BECAUSE that is what they feared, so that is what they focused on.

Whatever you focus on grows. For your starving people in Africa, surely this is what they do focus on because it is all they know. A wealthy person may fear losing their wealth, so this is what they focus on.

Donald Trump actually made and lost many fortunes but he was never not wealthy in his thoughts. He knew wealth was possible for him and even losing it several times, didn't take away his thought that he could be wealthy any time he chose. He thought "wealth thoughts" as Harv Ecker says in Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.

We can't know everything so obviously there are no answers to all questions. Perhaps people are starving in Africa to give the rest of us a chance to do good in the world. Perhaps the girls who are going to Oprah Winfrey's school in Africa, were thinking higher vibrational thoughts and so got that chance to be educated.

Hello, My name is Lita.
This happened a long, long time ago. I would just like to share what happened to me soon after I read the book of Dr. Wayne Dyer 'Manifest your Destiny'.
I did everything the book said following the principles stated in there and started doing the om and ah sound in the morning and evening while thinking of receiving 100,000 pesos.
After about two or three months of doing this ritual, I received the amount I was thinking of from a person I would never have thought would give such an amount to me.
It was not called Law of Attraction then but it sure made my dream come true.

I see the point of people living in poverty having a poverty mindset. Maybe there is no hope for them.

I think religion was created so there would be hope.

As far as this wealth minded society- I get the point. We have to believe in ourselves even at a healthy psychological point to get & achieve anything. It only makes sense.

You're right on, Doreen! Part of manifesting anything is learning to overcome obstacles in our thinking which stop us from achieving anything.

I think there is always hope for people, even those living in poverty but they would definitely have to some way improve their mindset and conceive of having plenty as a possibility for them. People can and do create miracles in their lives.

As far as religion giving hope-this is just my personal opinion but I feel that many organized religions actually take away people's hope. By saying things are "God's will" it takes away people's idea of creating a better life for themselves and assuming responsibility for doing so. There is the idea in Christian religion that God loves the poor and it's better to be poor than rich. This gives people an excuse not to try and achieve more in life. How about "Your true reward is in the afterlife?" In other words, if we're lucky enough to make it through this life without causing trouble to anyone, we'll be rewarded when we die.

Catherine Ponder who started the Unity Church actually taught prosperity but you won't see that in most Christian churches.

Lita, I'm glad you got something so positive from reading Wayne Dyer. He's one of my favorite authors and was teaching about manifesting long before it became known as the Law of Attraction.

I started to work on being grateful for what I have in my life instead of worrying about money & I find when ever I change my point of view I seem to lose customers!!!Yikes!!

Why is that? I advertise daily & am trying to schedule a full base so I am set with money a bit -then they start cancelling!

Yeesh!! I can't stand that. How do you all get to the point that you are wealthy or to a point you feel secure? You're right about feeling secure-that's what I want & to prosper & grow.

What do you all feel about the unstable economy? I am cleaning/organizing houses PT in addition to my other computer repair/graphic desighn biz.

The cleaning is so unstable. I do have a nice base but been trying to grow it & seem to always need more clients. How would you all approach acheiving a full schedule?
