The Law of Attraction is limited only by your imagination.
You’ll find books on how to apply the Law of Attraction to career, education, dating, smoking cessation or other specifics.
Never think for a minute that what you see in writing are the only options. If you can dream it, you do it with the Law of Attraction as your guiding principle. Without a doubt, the Law of Attraction is personal.
You can claim this approach to bring whatever you want or need into your life. You can’t order it like fries at a drive-through without a thought and expect it to just happen for you.
The Law of Attraction requires an investment of your beliefs. There’s just no other way to make it work. When you talk about beliefs, many people tie that to their upbringing as a Jew, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu or other religion.
Beliefs certainly have a spiritual link.
Early Hindu writings are said by many to be an early inspiration for the Law of Attraction. Some groups within Christianity denounce the Law of Attraction as being in opposition to their beliefs.
Yet an early writer on the Law of Attraction, James Allen, titled his 1902 book, As a Man Thinketh. This title is a portion of a Bible verse which states, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
The Old English use of “thinketh” is today just “thinks” – yet the sentiment still makes sense. It’s about who you are at the heart level – who you are inside. Where some Christians part company with the Law of Attraction is in the belief that they can have what they want by using positive energy, thinking it’s pushing prayer by the wayside.
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, whose distinguished 52-year career pasturing Marble Collegiate Church of Manhattan, was even better known as the author of The Power of Positive Thinking.
His positive thinking is very much in line with The Law of Attraction by applying repetition of positive affirmations, eliminating negative thinking and applying this to every aspect of life.
Dr. Peale saw no conflict with God in this approach because he felt that we could tap into God’s power to use for our needs.
Regardless of your religious affiliation, you can apply the Law of Attraction in your life as long as you merge these concepts.
