 ==== ====Visit my website for Joe Vitale and Steve Jones Law of Attraction Practitioner Certification here:http://tinyurl.com/bmakty3 ==== ====Is the Law of Attraction a Law? To answer, let's define the Law of Attraction. "I attract to my lifewhatever I give my attention, energy and focus to, whether positive or negative," says Michael J.Losier in his book Law of Attraction, The Science of Attracting More of What You Want and Lessof What You Don't. "We speak learnedly of the Law of Gravitation, but ignore that equally wonderful manifestation,The Law of Attraction in the Thought World," William Walker Atkinson wrote in his 1908 treatiseThought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World. Atkinson saw Thought as "a Force - a manifestation of energy - having a magnet-like power ofattraction," and he claimed the reason life denies us what we desire is "we close our eyes to themighty law that draws to us the things we desire or fear, that makes or mar our lives." If we fall in love with whatever it is we desire to attain, if it becomes our ruling passion or desire,then the Law of Attraction, Atkinson believed, kicks in. The Law, he assured his readers, will draw negative events to us if we're always negative and thethings we desire if we maintain a positive state of mind and do not waver from our intendedpurpose. Some people, including talk show host Larry King, have doubts about the efficacy of The Law ofPositive Attraction because, it seems to bypass those born into awful poverty and starvation whowill, no matter how positive their thoughts, probably die without a chance to ever raise themselvesout of the circumstances into which they were born. Witness what's going on in Darfur. So is The Law of Attraction a Law as real as gravity or is it a work in progress - a "habit" of theuniverse rather than a ironclad Law? Rupert Sheldrake, biologist with a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Cambridge University, has writtenmore than ten books including A New Science of Life and The Presence of the Past. Sheldrakesays most of the laws of nature, as well as the universe, are more habits rather than Laws. He states, "There is no need to suppose that all the laws of nature sprang into being fully formedat the moment of the Big Bang, like a kind of cosmic Napoleonic code, or that they [these Laws]exist in a metaphysical realm beyond time and space." Eternal laws make sense to us. Aren't they why the universe works? This would seem, at first
glance, to be the case. Sheldrake thinks differently. He believes the universe learns, just as we do. Nature progresses,the laws of nature also progress, just as human laws evolve over time. Sheldrake's years ofresearch have led him to conclude that the Laws of the Universe, so-called, are habits it haslearned over time. The more habits are repeated "the more probable they become, other things being equal." Habitsof past members of the species are transmitted, he says, "through a kind of non-local resonance,called morphic resonance." "Many kinds of organisms have habits," Sheldrake writes, "but only humans have laws." Through what he calls Morphic resonance "the patterns of activity in self-organizing systems[which we are; which the universe is] are influenced by similar patterns in the past, giving eachspecies and each kind of self-organizing system a collective memory," which is then integratedinto what we humans call Laws but are actually habits of the species - and habits of the cosmos. If Sheldrake is right, and I'm not arguing that he is, his theories would seem to suggest a differentview of the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction, therefore, may not be an eternal law but ahabit progressing toward Law status. This "Law" may likely be a work in progress, not a final fact. What does it mean when we hint that the Law of Attraction may be a work in progress and not aneternal law set in motion at the time of, or before, the origin of our universe, solar system, andearth? The implications, actually, are pretty exciting. In Self-Creation by George Weinberg, Ph.D., Weinberg indicates that "Every time you act you addstrength to the motivating idea behind what you've done." What this means is, "The act retypes the motivating message in your mind. When not acted on,the message becomes weaker as if fading from an electronic screen. When it is acted on itbecomes brighter, louder, recharged, prompting more of the same acts." In other words, "Actingon any belief or feeling makes you believe or feel it more." There is a two stage effect of any act, Weinberg says. "The immediate effect is to satisfy,assuage, reduce the motivating impulse behind it. The ultimate effect, however, is to strengthenit." The paranoid person, for example, who checks and rechecks the locks feels first stage relief,"and ultimate reinforcement of his paranoia." How does what Weinberg is saying tie into our premise about "Law" of Attraction? By the way, Self-Creation is not a book that mentions the Law of Attraction. It's about how ouracts, our behaviors, intensify the motivating message behind the acts we perform which makesthem, to a certain degree, habits - for better or worse. Reading his book we discover that "Any acts of avoidance based on fear will entrench the fear,"
 'Talking about our problems is the most impressive way a depressive keeps the depressiongoing," Weinberg writes. "Start checking up on someone [you don't trust] and you'll become evenmore suspicious." A man will never forgive you for the wrong he has done you," Weinberg says. "That which I feared most has come upon me," Job in the Old Testament told his friends. Jobblamed himself and his fears for his troubles. Doesn't Job's plight sound like the gravitation forceof his fears, the "Law of Attraction" at work, making his worries visible? It would seem so, doesn'tit? It is a paradox that "Self-protection does not alleviate fear, it increases it." "Love someone and they seem to become more worthy of your love," Weinberg writes. This howLaw of Attraction advocates say the Law works. We attract the "vibrations" of other minds keyedto our thoughts. In Using Your Mind For a Change, Richard Bandler observes that "Most people motivatethemselves by thinking about how bad they will feel if they don't do something. A few people dothe reverse. They use pleasant feelings as motivators. Those few," he writes, "live in an entirelydifferent world than most people." "Love someone and they seem to become more worthy of your love," Weinberg notes. Is it possible that we, by our thoughts, actions, feelings, moods, and desires, for good or ill, areteaching the Habit of Attraction how to become the eternal Law of Attraction? Might it be likely that all the wonderful things people who follow the "Law" of Attraction are doing -imagery, meditation, positive thinking, affirmations, cutting pictures of what they desire frommagazines and creating Dream Boards - are showing the Habit of Attraction how, as a work inprogress - to become a better, more dependable Law of Attraction? If this is so, then the Habit of Attraction is Learning from us to become a better, more efficient,reliable friend and "Law" to our worthy desires, but it's also learning - from our human thoughtforms - how to create images on the screen of space colored by our inner fears and moneyworries as well as the images on our nightly network news. Our thoughts are powerful Forces! "Never lose sight of the great principle of autosuggestion," The great healer Emile Coue' told hispatients who visited his clinic in Nancy, France, during the 1920's: "Optimism always and in spiteof everything, even when events do not seem to justify it." The Law of Habit of Attraction, learning from us and ever closer to becoming an eternal Law ofAttraction - thanks to us - will, if we trust it - be a powerful ally. "Then again he begins to set into motion the great Law of Attraction, whereby he draws to him
