Introduction Although this is only the introduction, please do not skip it. I know that you are keen to get to the nitty gritty, but without this introduction you could become lost before you start. This is your introduction to The Law of Attraction as I have come to know and understand it, the Law or more importantly believing the Law is the key to using the Law of Attraction to your benefit. An encyclopaedia definition of The Law of Attraction is ‘a theory commonly associated with New Age and New Thought philosophy. It posits, that one should never dwell on the negative, as the metaphysical principle of life is embodied in a Law of Attraction’ To put the ‘New Age New Thought Philosophy’ to rest we need to look at the history of the Law of Attraction and what philosophies and ideas they were based on. In research of the Law of Attraction you will find reference to The Emerald Tablet, written some 3,000 years BC, and the translations by various scholars such as Einstein & Plato, you will also find books based on the Law of Attraction dating back to 1912, The Master Key System, and 1937, Think and Grow Rich, hardly New Age. The purpose of this book is to show you how the world’s wealthy people have gained their wealth by using the Law of Attraction (whether knowing or unknowingly) or indeed how the world’s most unsuccessful people have blighted their success by utilising these Laws. You justticket knowing about theinexistence of the Law of Attraction is notsee your to everything life you can ever imagine, however understanding, allowing and using it is. What I will undertake is to explain the principles of the Law of Attraction, as well as giving you the tools and understanding to make the Law work in a positive way for you. I will be showing you the way that you can literally manifest anything you can 4
imagine into your life, and indeed show you that it is your destiny to do so. It is time to unlock your hidden potential, as never before, it’s time for an education like you’ve never known before. However it’s also time to face reality, because as I will show you, your current financial and emotional situation, indeed your current surroundings whatever they may be, are a direct result of what you are feeling, thinking, and believing and, unless you can take full responsibility for where you are now, you will never fully control where you are going. I know that this is very difficult for a lot of people to hear but until you take full responsibility for your own situation, without blaming external factors and placing the blame for your situation outside of yourself. Unless you can do this, you will never have the ammunition to change direction and gain all the things you desire. Many will have discovered the Law of Attraction by way of the film The Secret, inspired by Rhonda Byrne. The focus of the film was based on a small, old book called The Science of Getting Rich. Rhonda’s mission was to take this knowledge to the world, and so the great journey that was The Secret, began. However, for many, seeing the film The Secret will not be enough. You see, it’s not about knowing The Secret or learning of the existence of the Law of Attraction that will change you. It’s about learning how to apply the Laws, it’s about controlling your conscious and in turn your subconscious mind. I will give you the science of the Law of Attraction, the history of the Law of Attraction, and the various methods of using the Law of Attraction to your advantage. I will give you your wand of life and teach you how to use it. I hope you enjoy this book, and if you’d like to read more information please visit my website the Law-of-AttractionGuide.com 5
Understanding The Law of Attraction In understanding the Law of Attraction, we come to realize that we attract into our lives whatever we give our Attention, Energy and Focus to. Whether wanted or unwanted. That with synchronicity, we attract from the outside what we resonate with, on the inside, bringing into our life what we momentarily strongly focus upon. In other words, that by having an optimistic attitude and focusing on success, one attracts these, while having a cynical depressed attitude attracts negative experiences. Could this be true? During my introduction to the Law of Attraction, I needed to make a shift to the positive; I’d surely had enough negative experience to last a lifetime. Before to long my life carried on staying the same, bills, debt, more bills, more debt, you get the picture. What was happening? Understanding the Law of Attraction principles was not a problem, I focused on the positive, and all I was getting was the same old deal. Reading more into these ideas, I began to understand that I needed to believe and be grateful and this elusive Law of Attraction would kick in. Great, I had the answer; say thank you to everyone and all would be OK! The postman got a thank you for not bringing a bill, the trolley boy at the supermarket got one for leaving a trolley out for me, so did the checkout girl because there was no queue. I thanked the ATM machine, the bank manager, the kid on the bike, my computer, the cooker, heck I must be the most grateful 6
person on the planet, this Law of Attraction ain’t going turn me down. After a few days of this everything started to go wrong, you guessed it, the postman brought a bill, the trolley boy left no trolley, the checkout girl left a queue, even the ATM stopped giving me money. What’s going wrong? What was I missing? Then those words rang out at me again, in understanding the Law of Attraction process you needed Faith and Belief. But how could I Believe? This stuff hadn’t worked up to now, so how could I believe? Tell me how it works and then I’ll Believe. “Don’t worry about How The Law of Attraction works,” I was told, “You don’t need to know, you don’t know how electricity works, but you still use it.” But that’s not fair! With electricity, I don’t need faith, I plug the kettle in and get a steaming cup of coffee, whether I believe it or not. So the question is, if I focus on the fact that I have little money, bad health, or a poor relationship, how and why does the Law of Attraction respond by giving me more of what I’m focusing on? And if I shift my focus to the positive how do my desires come true? And this is the great secret of the secret, in understanding The Law of Attraction and knowing how it works, you’ll start to trust it Trust it and you’ll start to believe it. Believe it, and it will start to respond and only then can you start to refine, mould, and create your desired reality.
A Definition of The Law of Attraction To come up with a definition of the Law of Attraction, we need to have an understanding of our surroundings. Everything in the universe is made from the same thing, energy. We have always thought of matter as being solid, but if we were to look at our hands with a powerful microscope, we would see molecules of atoms, held together, but with large gaps of nothing, not a solid. If we were to look closer we would see these atoms made up of a nucleus with electrons whizzing around them, like planets whizzing around our sun, we are not solid, we are not static, we are energy. It’s not just our physical characteristics that are energy, our thoughts are too. If you put your hands on your head and just hold them there for a moment. Now think about all the muscles that were employed to complete that simple task, you read the instruction, and carry out the task, seemingly, without a thought. But thousands of electronic signals were sent via your body network, instructing muscles to contract and expand, nerves to analyse, feel and provide feedback, until your limbs were in the desired environment, for more signals to explode through your body telling everything to pause. Now think about hitting a ball with a bat, analyse that! Now try something else for five minutes. Sit still, control your body in a comfortable position without moving. Now stare at nothing, empty your mind and think of nothing, just for 5 minutes.
You just can’t do it. We our like little factories of thought, little foundries of energy, and like the electron whizzing around the nucleus we are either positive or negative, we are living magnets giving off positive or negative energy, and in much the same way as magnets we are attracting into our lives the same energy that we are giving, depending on which end of the magnet we are activating, this is the Law of Attraction. One way of formulating a definition of the Law of Attraction would be to think of what reading material resonates with you, what ideas ring true, which people have good or bad vibes, or who is on the same wavelength. These are more than just metaphors, they are accurate ways of describing the vibration of our reality. It is known that two tuning forks with the same physical characteristics when held close together, the ringing fork will cause a non-ringing fork to ring as they resonate with each other. Likewise, two people will resonate with each other when they share common frequency. Simply having common interests is not enough to cause resonance. There must also be compatibility on the soul level that you can feel. This resonate definition of the Law of Attraction would be, like attracts like. If my vibrating energy is positive, I will attract into my life positive people, likewise if my vibrating energy is negative, I will attract like-minded negative people. The definition of the Law of Attraction could be perhaps more easily explained as the Law of Vibration. A simple definition of the Law of Attraction could be, “With syncronicity, we attract from the outside what you resonate with, on the inside.”
Another definition of the Law of Attraction says that, “I attract to my life whatever I give my attention, Energy and Focus to. Whether wanted or unwanted.” To expand this definition of the Law of Attraction a little, we could say that by having an optimistic attitude and focusing on success, one attracts these, while having a cynical depressed attitude attracts negative experiences. If you focus on the fact that you have little money, bad health, or poor relationships, the Law of Attraction will respond by giving you more of what you are focusing on. Of course, most people don’t really want more of the things they lack, but because they are putting focus and energy toward the negative, more negativity happens. So by using thought as intention and attention, in other words, thinking will be the cause, observing will change the srcinal outcome and become the effect.
Captain and Crew Another simplistic definition of the Law of Attraction is from Val Smyth, founder of Mentors in Motion. For his definition of Law of Attraction, Val refers to Captain and Crew Technology. He describes the process as, be, do and have. To draw his depiction of the human mind, you would draw a large circular head resting on top of a stick body, if you divide the head in two with a horizontal line, inserting the word Captain (conscious mind) in the top half, and Crew (subconscious mind) in the bottom half. On the top of the head you would insert two antennas, one with a positive (+) sign, the other a negative (-) sign, and between the antenna, an energy or frequency line. Everything that takes place comes from energy, our thoughts to situations, comments, conversation, indeed our life experience will be received and transmitted from the positive or the negative antenna. What the mind receives will be analysed by the captain, before passing to the crew. So it is the captain (the conscious mind) who is analytical, who will decide, what is true and what is untrue, before giving the information to the crew. The crew (the subconscious mind) cannot analyse, cannot reason and relies 100% on the captain to create its reality. The captain is rather like the watchman at the gate protecting the crew. However, there huge flaw in this arrangement, if the captain experiences are is predominately negative energy, the crew will have no choice but to manifest predominately negative feelings. If I tell you that you are ugly, then you can take that experience as a positive and choose to ignore my worthless opinion, thus protecting the crew, or you can experience it as a negative, telling the crew that they are ugly and worthless. 11
The crew must manifest what the captain tells them, if the captain responded in a negative way, telling the crew that they are ugly, then the crew will have no choice but manifest the feelings of ugliness, worthlessness and low esteem. Similarly if I thank you for something, telling you how wonderful you are, the captain experiences this as a positive, and tells the crew the same thing, the crew has no choice but to manifest those feelings of feeling good. A good example that Val shares with us is one of his own experiences, growing up with his father who continually verbally abused him. A young life of being told that he was worthless, unlovable, hated and useless, of course you can imagine the consequence. The captains job was to collect the data and pass on to the crew that which he believed to be true, so, if the captain believes the abuse, then the crew must respond, manifesting shy, fearful and introverted emotions, of course this child will grow up to be just that, shy, introverted, and scared, withdrawing from relationships and experiencing difficulty in handling themselves in society. Such a person may dream of success, relationships, prosperity and happiness but until those inner feelings and subconscious beliefs are addressed, they will never find any of these things. As soon as he accepted that his abuser wasn’t directing his hate to anything but his feelings towards himself, he could start to disregard his father’s abusive nature, stop believing him and manifest a different destiny for himself. I am sure that you know that as you read this, your body continues to function, your heart beats, kidneys clean, lungs pump. You are a mass of energy, mending and replacing yourself. This is your crew at work, creating your inner and outer world. It’s your subconscious and will bring into reality anything you desire. Did rich people get rich by chance? No, they use the Captain and Crew, manifesting abundance into reality. 12
Do people stay on benefits by chance? No, they use the Captain to tell the Crew that they have low self-esteem, they are not worthy, and that they need support, sure enough the crew will manifest that reality to. You must BE poverty, to DO poverty, to HAVE poverty Similarly if you are of a middle class mindset, the Captain will instruct the Crew that you need $40k, $50k or $60k annual income to maintain your middle class lifestyle, every month there will be enough money to pay your mortgage, your 2 cars and put enough food on the table, nothing more and nothing less. You must BE middle class, to DO middle class, to HAVE middle class If the Captain tells the Crew to do something, the Crew will respond, never question it and never doubt it. If you doubt it then what happens, the Captain is then telling the Crew ‘don’t believe that order’ causing confusion and chaos. Be specific in what you order, be specific with what you want, the Captain and Crew will bring into reality whatever you desire. Your house, your street, your partner, job and car are a result of the Captain and Crew, you created these things, you attracted them to you. Everything you see, everything that surrounds you, is the result of your conscious mind, telling your subconscious mind, and your subconscious mind manifesting it for you. This is the Law of Attraction in action. Whatever definition of the Law of Attraction you take on board, you must learn to control your conscious mind, whether your using meditation for abundance techniques, attracting abundance and prosperity into your life or using Law of Attraction relationship exercises.
It’s the power of positive thinking, combined with spiritual growth that will give you the power of your conscious mind which will, in turn, enable your subconscious mind to manifest your desires.
The Law of Attraction History What is the history of the Law of Attraction and when did it start? It started with the creation of the universe and the creation of thought. The challenging question is, when did mankind first become aware of this law? The answer to that is unknown, although there is some evidence to suggest that people knew about universal law at least 6000 or 7000 years ago. Research on the history of the Law of Attraction provides us with many inspirational quotes, which gives us plenty of evidence that the laws were truly understood. When studying the history of the Law of Attraction we see that Buddha said, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought." A powerful statement. Buddha is telling us that, not only do we create the material things in our lives by what we think, we also create ourselves. Further evidence in the history of the Law of Attraction can be found in the King James version of the Bible, In the Book of Job. We see that Job may not have fully understood the workings of attraction, however like many people today he suffered the consequences of the law by not using it for his good. In Job 3: 25, it reads, “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”
How many of us are creating what we do not desire in life? How many of us are setting ourselves up as victims because we do not understand, or are not consciously using the Law of Attraction? Without knowing when the phrase was first coined, it is difficult to document the first writings, however Law of attraction awareness was certainly awakened in the last century or so, with many authors and scientists writing, perhaps controversially, at the turn of the last century. Many of these books are now in the public domain and are available in eBook format at the Law-of-Attraction-Guide Free eBook Library. James Allen (1864-1912) James Allen is best known for his book As a Man Thinketh, which is one of the most powerful law of attraction books written. The forward states, “to stimulate men and women to the discovery and perception of the truth that - they themselves are makers of themselves by virtue of the thoughts which they choose and encourage; that mind is the master-weaver, both of the inner garment of character and the outer garment of circumstance, and that, as they may have hitherto woven in ignorance and pain they may now weave in enlightenment and happiness.” As you can see the style of writing is rather dated and needs to be read carefully. Wallace D. Wattles (1860 – 1911) Wallace Wattles studied the various religious beliefs and philosophies of the world including those of Descartes, Spinoza, Leibnitz, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Swedenborg, Emerson, and others. He translated those studies into several books including The Science of Getting Rich. In this book he builds upon the following statement, 16
“There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, which, in its srcinal state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe. A thought in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. I can form things in my thought, and by impressing my thoughts upon formless substance, can cause the thing I think about to be created.” In the past 30 years, this book has been used as the basis to teach many people about the Law of Attraction, and was the inspiration for the movie, The Secret. Charles F. Haanel (1866 - 1943) Charles Haanel was a noted American author and businessman who belonged to the American Scientific League, The Author’s League of America, The American Society of Psychical Research, the St. Louis Humane Society and the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce. Charles F. Haanel began his business career in St. Louis. He resigned his position in order to start his own company and eventually founded one of the largest conglomerates of his time. He wrote several books that were published in St. Louis by Psychology Publishing and by his Master Key Institute in New York. Mr. Haanel put into books the ideas and methods he used to gain his success. Besides the Master Key System, which he wrote in 1912, he also wrote Mental Chemistry and The New Psychology. By 1933 The Master Key System had sold over 200,000 copies and then seemingly disappeared. The Master Key System has proved to be one of the finest studies in self-improvement and higher consciousness ever written. Covering everything from attracting abundance and prosperity, to greater health and happiness. This system teaches the principles and practise of the laws of cause and effect.
One of the most inspirational quotations written in the introduction of the book is, “Abundance, therefore, depends upon recognition of the laws of Abundance, and the fact that Mind is not only the creator, but the only creator of all there is.” Again the writing requires careful reading, but is well worth it. The Master Key System was srcinally written as a 24 part correspondence course and therefore is far more practical as a step-by-step building process, with weekly Law of Attraction exercises and lessons. The Master Key System is the spine of our own training program Unlock The Power of You Napoleon Hill (1883 - 1970) Napoleon Hill is considered to have influenced more people into success than any other person in history. He has been perhaps the most influential man in the area of personal success development. As a reporter, Napoleon Hill was given an assignment to write a series of success stories of famous men, and his big break came when he was asked to interview steel-magnate Andrew Carnegie. Mr. Carnegie commissioned Hill to interview over 500 millionaires to find a success formula that could be used by the average person. These included Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, Charles M. Schwab, Theodore Roosevelt, William Wrigley Jr, John Wanamaker, WIlliam Jennings Bryan, George Eastman, Woodrow Wilson, William H. Taft, John D. Rockefeller, F. W. Woolworth, Jennings Randolph, among others. He became an advisor to Andrew Carnegie, and with Carnegie's help he formulated a philosophy of success, drawing on the thoughts and experience of a multitude of rags-to-riches tycoons.
It took Hill over 20 years to produce his book, a classic in the Personal Development field called Think and Grow Rich. This book has sold over 7 million copies and has helped thousands achieve success. The secret to success is very simple but you'll have to read the book to find out what it is! The first copy of Think and Grow rich was sold in 1937. Eleven years later, in February 1948, Coronet magazine polled 300 successful young men and women, asking, “What books had most influenced their lives and contributed to their success?” Think and Grow Rich was ranked fourth. Some 38 years later USA Today published a list of the top 10 selling paperbacks about investments, Think and Grow Rich ranked No.1. Incredibly in 2002, some 65 years after it was published, Think and Grow Rich was tenth in the Business Week bestsellers. Napoleon Hills work stands as a monument to individual achievement and is the cornerstone of modern motivation. His book, Think and Grow Rich, is the all time best seller in the field. The forerunner to Think and Grow Rich was called The Law of Success, a far more in-depth book which is an integral part of the Unlock The Power of You Training Program Florence Scovel (1871 - 1940) One of the first metaphysics teachers of this past century. In her book The Game of Life and How to Play It, she states; “Most people consider life a battle, but it is not a battle, it is a game. It is a game, however, which cannot be played successfully without the knowledge of spiritual law, and the Old and the New Testaments give the rules of the game with wonderful clearness.” Jesus Christ taught us that it was a great game of Giving and Receiving. "Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap" This means that whatever man sends out, in word or deed, will return to him; what he gives, he will receive. If he gives hate, he will receive hate; if he gives love, he will receive love; if he gives 19
criticism, he will receive criticism; if he lies, he will be lied to; if he cheats, he will be cheated. Florence is also quoted as saying “Infinite spirit opens the way for my great abundance. I am an irresistible magnet for all that belongs to me by divine right. My supply is endless, inexhaustible and immediate and comes to me under grace in perfect ways.” It is my belief, that at our very core, people want to have a peaceful and harmonious world. I also believe that as people become aware of the history of the Law of Attraction, they will realize that they can influence the world by their belief and will be an agent for positive change for the future. It is important that more and more people become aware of and use the Law of Attraction daily to create tremendous lives for themselves and others. The Game of Life and How to Play It, is another study program of the Unlock The Power of You training program.
The Law of Cause and Effect “Everything Happens for a Reason” If we understand Cause and Effect, can we change the Cause and change the Effect on our lives for the better? For every effect in your life, there is a cause, or series of specific, measurable, definable, identifiable causes. We all know someone who seems to be a Law of Attraction master. Someone who, seemingly understands the Law of Attraction success principles and with ease appears to have everything they want. Usually these are people who we’ve thought, much more fortunate than we were. As I have described, “we attract to our life what we give our focus, energy and attention to.” So are these people deliberately attracting a better lifestyle or not? For those of us who have applied our attention, energy and focus on without, we are still using Cause and Effect, it’s just that our attention has been focused in the wrong direction. The definition of Cause and Effect says that if there is anything you want in life, an effect that you desire, you can find someone else that has achieved the same result or effect, and that by doing the same things they have done, and over you can eventually enjoy that the same results and over rewards. However, Cause and Effect cuts both ways. It also says that if there is an unwanted effect in your life, whether it’s no money, bad relationships, unsatisfying career, or any other difficulty, you can trace that effect back to the things that you have done to
cause it and that by removing the causes you can begin to remove the effects, sometimes as quickly as overnight. From this moment on, using Cause and Effect to attract abundance and prosperity, will be down to your knowledge, not be down to luck. As with any skill you will need to practise affirmations, visualizations, and Law of Attraction exercises to attract those things you desire. And I mean practise, I can tell you how to play the piano, but I can’t make you practise, I can not give you the determination to keep trying this until you make it work. I’m reminded of a lesson I was once taught, "Intelligence is not the secret of success, as I know many disillusioned intellects, skill is not the secret of success, as I know many talented failures, but persistence, is the only way to succeed" Although some of us are better at certain skills, that doesn't mean the rest of us, with practice, can't improve or even surpass the talent expressed by another. Grasping a better understanding of the process of Cause and Effect and the Law of Attraction, is the first step in attracting abundance and prosperity to manifest your dreams. Success, however you define it, is not an accident. It is not a result of good luck versus bad luck. Even if you have not taken the time to clearly identify how you got from where you were to where you are today, there have been a series of specific steps that you have taken that have brought you to where you are at this minute. And the fact is, they could have brought you to no other place. You have used Cause and Effect to bring you to where, and what you are now. It has been your choices and your decisions over the months and years that have inevitably determined the condition of your life at this moment. The most wonderful part of this is, that at any time you can start making different choices and different decisions, taking different 22
steps and you will inevitably arrive at a different place than where you are today. In it’s simplest terms, successful, happy, healthy, prosperous people are those that have discovered the laws that govern our lives and have designed their lives so that they are in harmony with those laws. As a result, through Cause and Effect, they experience far more joy and satisfaction, and accomplish far more in a few years then the average person does in a lifetime. The Law of Attraction is commonly associated with wealth creation. This is a misconception. These laws are the defining principles that govern every aspect of your life; relationships, family, business and health. Whenever you need to succeed, the Law of Attraction and your mental attitude will define the level of your success, or indeed failure. The Law of Cause and Effect is this – “thoughts are causes” and “conditions are effects”. Your mind is the most powerful force in your universe. A man becomes what he thinks about most of the time. You are, where you are and what you are, because of your habitual ways of thinking. Your thoughts are creative, and they ultimately create your reality. So if you change your thinking, you change your life. The greatest thinkers of all time, have all emphasized the power of positive thinking and the power of Cause and Effect to shape individual destinies. “whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap” Whatever you are reaping today is a result of what you have sown in the past. You will see that every conceivable force or object or fact is the result of mind in action. 23
Mind in action is thought, and thought is creative. Men are thinking now, as they never thought before. Therefore, this is a creative age, and the world is awarding its richest prizes to the thinkers. Matter is powerless, passive, and inert. Mind is force, energy, and power. Mind shapes and controls matter. Every form which matter takes is but the expression of some pre-existing thought. But thought works no magic transformations; it obeys Natural Laws; it sets in motion natural forces; it releases natural energies; it manifests in your conduct and actions, and these in turn react upon your friends and acquaintances, and eventually upon the whole of your environment. You can srcinate thought, and since thoughts are creative, you can create for yourself the things you desire. Whether it is called Cause and Effect, the Law of Attraction, the Power of Positive Thinking or simply Sowing and Reaping, they all follow universal principles that have existed since the beginning of man on this earth. All success, happiness and achievement comes from organizing your life in conformance with these Cause and Effect principles. When you do, you will achieve satisfaction and enjoyment at levels seldom experienced by the average person and of course, people will start to refer to you as lucky. If we assume that the Law of Attraction or the Laws of Cause and Effect, suggests that we should be aware, but never ever dwell on the negative, as the principle of life and metaphysics that is embodied in the law of attraction, that is that you get what you think about; your thoughts determine your destiny. To utilize the Law of Attraction you need to understand the principle of Cause and Effect, the following is a short 3-step process:
Ask what you want in an object/scenario context
Maintain Focus; the universe will answer
Do not hesitate when the goal is manifested; seize it without hesitation.
Sounds simple enough doesn’t it? Ask –
What could be easier, however as we have already discussed, this is not as simple as that. To ask will involve positive visualisation techniques, possibly words of affirmations, vision boards or meditation. Whatever technique you use the art of asking is being accurate and specific.
One of the hardest principles to get hold of, to believe, not to doubt in any way whatsoever. When we look at the possibility of Attracting the winning lottery numbers, in principal that’s fine, but can you submit you’re numbers and without any shadow of doubt know, hand on heart, that you have the winning ticket? Doubt Blocks.
Receive – Now that must be simple? Mind you has opportunity ever presented itself to you, which, in hindsight you wish you’d taken? Seize it without hesitation but with gratitude. Here’s a short beginners exercise to help you utilise Cause and Effect. Start with simple things, like a car park space, a phone call being answered or maybe an out of the blue contact with a friend. 1. Find a quiet room and get into a comfortable position. 2. Think of something, anything that brings you strong positive emotions of love, joy, or gratitude. (It can be the birth of a child, a promotion, a new pet, a relationship, etc. just remember it must be totally positive.) Re-live the experience until you can feel the joy in your entire body with all your 25
senses. Got the idea? It is important to feel it, as this adds emphasis (and speed) to you manifesting your desires. Make sure all your senses are being used. What did it sound like, smell like, feel like, etc? 3. When you're in a truly happy state, visualize what you want to create and see it as if it has already happened -- that you are driving that new car, living in that new home and enjoying that relationship. Really get into the feeling and use this experience to its fullest. Again use all your senses. Try to hear those ocean breezes, smell the scent of the pine trees, feel the touch of your fingers on the steering wheel of that car, taste that kiss, and see yourself enjoying that new car or relationship, etc. Got the idea? 4. When you are done, say it out loud or write on a piece of paper, ‘I am so happy and grateful that.......’ and fill in the object of your desire. For example, “I am so happy and grateful that I have enough money to pay for anything I want and to travel anywhere, anytime.” Then write or say, “It is done. And so it is.” Say this in a confident and commanding tone and expect it to happen. 5. You have now released it to the Universe so go about your day and forget about the “how's.” This is where you must “Let go and let God” as the saying goes. This is the true Art of Allowing because you have given it over to God (The Universe). Remember this is the part where we often fail because we question or we keep noticing that we don’t have it yet. These methods are great for getting started but you really need to gain full control over your subconscious, to really see the power of positive thinking. To develop your Cause and Effect skills, Unlock The Power of You allows you to unleash your full potential faster than you ever thought possible!
How Does The Law of Attraction Work? This is not an easy question to answer, arguably the first selfimprovement guide that existed, which mentioned, or more accurately referred to the Law of Attraction, was the First Testament. We therefore have to take a “Spiritual” or “Religious” view. So do I argue the existence of a God? But then again, it is science that has put the Law of Attraction, back on the modern day “table.” So do I argue the fact of science? You see, throughout history, it has been a battle of science and religion, from astrology to evolution, you could not sit on the fence, were you blinded by science or misguided by religion? This is a dawn of a new age, where religion will need to embrace its own evolution, and science its spirituality. Our minds are like parachutes, only functioning properly when fully open, and now is the time to “Pull The Cord.” If you air on the side of science, I ask you to consider the spiritual arguments and vice versa for religious readers, these theories follow logical patterns. Before we start, a word about “God” I will not stand here to prove the existence of your or any God, I do not stand onofany side ofname. religion, when I speak about “God”, I so for want a better To begin with, it will do us well to dispel all our visual ideas of God, especially in human form, because that will seem to limit our ideas of power and resource.
But before we embark on the principle of the Law of Attraction as fact, we need to clear up the issue of proof. It has been said, and strictly speaking it’s true, that, “The Law of Attraction is only a theory; it hasn't been proved.” So how can we prove the Law of Attraction? Is the law Attraction, a theory? Strictly speaking it is, but there is some confusion between what “theory” means informally, compared to a “theory” of science. In the scientific sense, a theory is a group of general propositions used as principles to explain a condition or phenomena. So does this mean that the Law, Attraction is uncertain? Not at all, or more accurately speaking, as uncertain as electricity, gravity and evolution. Ah, I here you say, electricity and gravity are governed by laws! True, and here’s the difference, a theory does not imply lack of certainty, but explains the reason for seeing a result, to our best understanding, a law however, implies that the results we see can be calculated in controlled conditions. Yes but as a theory or law Attraction has no proof! Ok, but does that make it weak? Has anything in the physical world ever been proved? Or will it ever be? In the real world, we must deal with levels of certainty based on evidence. The more and better evidence we have for something, the more certainty we assign to it; when there is enough evidence, we label the something a fact, even though it still isn't 100% certain, or fully understood. 28
To use proof as an argument against the “theory” of the law “Attraction”, is ridiculous ... you might as well argue that gravity is a theory, and that we can't assume objects will always fall to the ground, after all it’s far from being completely understood. What the Law of Attraction has is what any good scientific claim, or evidence, and lots of it. A wide range of observations throughout history supports the Law of Attraction and to challenge the theory, Attraction, you must address that evidence. You must show that the evidence is either wrong or irrelevant, or that it fits another theory better. Of course, to do this, you must know both the theory and the evidence. So what is the evidence of this Law of Attraction? One of the most successful self-help books of all time was a 25 year study of success principles documented by Napoleon Hill in his books Law of Success and Think and Grow Rich Think and Grow Rich Hill refers to the Law of Attraction as “The Secret,” which has made fortunes for more than five hundred exceedingly wealthy men, whom he carefully analyzed over a long period of years. The secret Law of Attraction, was brought to Hill’s attention by Andrew Carnegie, asking Hill if he would be willing to spend twenty years or more, taking this principle to the world, to men and women who, without the secret, might go through life as failures. This book contains the secret Law of Attraction, after having been put to a practical test by thousands of people, in almost every walk of life. It was Mr. Carnegie's idea that the magic formula, which gave him a stupendous fortune, ought to be placed within reach of people who do not have time to investigate how men make money, and it was his hope that Hill might test and demonstrate the soundness 29
of the formula through the experience of men and women in every calling. He believed the formula should be taught in all public schools and colleges, and expressed the opinion that if it were properly taught, it would so revolutionize the entire educational system that the time spent in school, could be reduced to less than half. In Hill’s words, “While I was performing the twenty year task of research, which I had undertaken at Mr. Carnegie's request, I analyzed hundreds of well known men, many of whom admitted that they had accumulated their vast fortunes through the aid of the Carnegie secret.” “These names represent but a small fraction of the hundreds of well known Americans whose achievements, financially and otherwise, prove that those who understand and apply the Carnegie secret, reach high stations in life. I have never known anyone who was inspired to use the secret, who did not achieve noteworthy success in his chosen calling. I have never known any person to distinguish himself, or to accumulate riches of any consequence, without possession of the secret. From these two facts I draw the conclusion that the secret is more important, as a part of the knowledge essential for self-determination, than any which one receives through what is popularly known as education.” I do suggest that you read Think and Grow Rich, which you can download from our Free Law of Attraction Library. However Hills preceding book, The Law of Success, is a much clearer and concise version, but, an extremely rare book!

The Evolution of Our Thought The following pages will give you an understanding of how the Law of Attraction works, from both a religious, or spiritual angle, and from the view of modern science. These ideas follow a inductive reasoning pattern, so you will need to read them quite carefully. If we studied the evolution of “Man” we would see that, Intelligent Man was preceded by Instinctive Man. An instinctive creature who was unaware of himself and his surroundings. Evolution was the creator of Instinctive Man, but at the time that Instinctive Man made his first greatest discovery, I AM, the evolutionary process stopped, and Intelligent Man took over. So where did Instinctive Man go? Instinctive Man relied purely on instinctive thought, there was no reason for things, they just were, a kind of animal state. But where is he? Well he is still there, we cannot see him, but we know he is there, he is our subconscious, our un-objecting self, the doer in you, or the God in Man. So if nature through evolution created Instinctive Man, to a point that he was intelligent, why is he not perfect? To create a perfect being, it must have free will and choice, we must have the freedom to be perfect and we must discover this perfection for ourselves. But throughout our growth advancement telling us that there must beand something more,our theinstinct human keeps race has suffered greatly, throughout all history, as disease, hardship and discord as proceeded the crowning tomb of death, to end all. Why?
Why all the suffering, sorrow sickness and sin, only to be met by an ultimate sinking into the soil? It is the Instinctive Man who said that “there must be something more,” Instinctive Man had spoken, “Know Thyself,” look within for the answer of life. This has been man’s greatest discovery, and man’s greatest adventure, the discovery of mind. But what of mind, Intelligent Man always new of mind, it told him what he needed, when to eat, how to hunt and build, it’s just his brain. But can the brain think? If it could then we could take it out of our body and it would go right on thinking. So the brain alone cannot think, as man in a physical form cannot think without a brain, it follows that there must be a thinker in man, a thinker that uses the brain of man to think. But what is this thinker, who is he, we cannot see him so how can we know that he exists. There are many powers of nature we cannot see, but we do not doubt their existence, we see the effect of electricity and gravity, but we do not see the cause, we do not see electricity. It is man who has discovered himself, it is man who has applied this knowledge. His body has been produced by a process of evolution, which took man to the realisation of himself, evolution ceased when man discovered that he could think and reason. But what of his thoughts? Where did his thoughts go? Man had discovered that he could think and that his thoughts returned to him as memory.
This led to the conclusion that memory was active, an inner mental action. Our bodies are not conscious of life, but are thought is conscious of our body, it must be that our body is operated by thought. If then our body is operated by thought, so it must be operated by memory, as memory is active thought. Therefore as memory is the collection of conscious thought and operates the body, memory must be an unconscious operation of what was once conscious thought. This is the formation of habit, the way we learn. This is how we run, walk and talk, seemingly without thinking. The conclusion must be that we have 2 minds. One mind being the seat of habit, our memory, what we call subjective or subconscious mind. The other the seat of reason, our analytical, objective or conscious mind. The conscious mind thinks and acts while the subconscious mind builds and operates, the subconscious body builder and maintainer So as we think, we impress our thought on the subconscious, and the subconscious must do as directed, the action of thought will produce the reaction of that thought. So any imperfection must be a result of imperfect thought. All thoughts of disease, upset and discord must be a result of imperfect thinking, it then follows that if we change the way we think, so must the conditions we experience. Mans next great discovery was that our thoughts reached others. Feeling for others, feelings of love, harmony, comfort and vibes, hatred and uneasiness are more than life experience, they are instinctive thoughts, instinctive reactions to mental frequency. Our thought has a measurable vibration, our personal wavelength and nature has a way of lining compatible things up with each other, or repelling the incompatible, just as oil repels water or north attracts south
But our thought could do more than feel frequency, it could influence and impress others, we see this in hypnosis and healing. So man had discovered that our objective mind could not only influence our own subjective mind, but could influence the subjective mind of others. This being so, it must follow that thought must act through a universal medium, a universal mind or the Law of God. So what of our physical world? If we can help and heal ourselves and others by thinking into a Universal Mind, surely we could affect our physical world. Why were some people rich and some poor? Was it fate or luck? How could some people be happy and prosperous while others were unhappy and poor? Some people succeed and some people fail, yet we all operate in the same condition, everything is run by man himself, so the difference must be from within. Mans next great discovery was the realization that conditions are controlled by thought, that changed thought changes affairs, that right thinking produces right conditions. So man discovered that he could control his affairs by right thinking; he could bring into his experience the things he wished to enjoy if he thought correctly; and since this was all in accordance with law he could do so consciously. He realized that the time would come when every one would think correctly; and poverty, unhappiness, and all that goes with them, would be swept from the face of the earth. They were never intended to be, but man had misused his power; now that he understood, he would change his whole manner of thinking and consequently he would become happy and have plenty. But every one did not believe this. Many said that it was a foolish idea, while others said that it was too good to be true. However, it was soon proven that whoever would believe and comply with the Law could prove it to be true. If some did not wish to believe, that 34
was all right; there were plenty who would, and the direct proofs of their lives would in time convince others. In this way, eventually, all would be saved from unbearable conditions. The thing to do was to teach the Law to those who did believe. We explore this further in the Evolution and Spirituality Chapters of Unlock The Power of You, our very own Law of Attraction Training Programme.
The Nature of Being Man is made of three parts, a self-conscious mind, a subconscious mind and a body. He is conscious mind or spirit. He is subconscious mind or mental law. He is body. The conscious mind controls the subconscious; and in turn, the subconscious controls the body. We also know that man comes from God, Life or Nature, whichever we choose to call it. But it must be true that if we come from nature, nature must be life, as there is no way of getting something from something, unless it was there in the first place. Because man is something, he must have been made from, or come out of something, and that something must be what we call God. We can also assume that what is true of us must be true of God (What is true of the part, must be true of the whole). So God is also made of three parts, God is Spirit (Conscious), Law in Action (Sub-conscious) and God is result or body. In other words God is Cause, Medium and Effect. All things to beisthreefold in nature, a seed fororinstance is as cause, thetend medium soil and the result the plant, electricity cause, the laws of electricity being the way it works and its results in light, heat or motion. As Jesus said, “thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven,” Heaven being cause, Gods Will being medium and Earth the effect.
There must always be a trinity of being, The Thing, What The Thing Does and How it Does it. But in God and Man there is a Self Conscious Spirit, a self-knowing that knows itself; this sets Man and God aside. There is still a trinity of being, The Thing, What The Thing Does and How it Does it, but in God and Man The Thing knows itself. This self-knowing nature of Man and God, allows us not to exist above and independently of law, but to consciously use law for a definite purpose. Jesus told us that God and Man are One in Real Nature, this understanding must be the source of his marvellous power. There is no record of any Deep Thinker or Great Teacher, that has taught Duality, Moses taught us that, “That the Lord our God is one Lord.” The saying, “I AM that I AM,” was old before Moses was born, as it had been inscribed over the temple entrances for generations. We may go back much farther than Moses and find the same teaching, for it crops out from the literatures and sayings of the wise of all ages. Jesus taught this when He said, “I and the Father are One,” and in the saying, “The Father that dwelleth in me.” This teaching of Unity is the cornerstone of religious teaching, East and West, Ancient Scripture to New Age. Science has found nothing to contradict this teaching, and it never will, for the teaching is self-evident. In the development of early Intelligent Man, his thought brought him to an idea that there were many Gods. As Man experienced different kinds of misfortune and difficulties, it was a natural development to put blame on the Gods, and as Man has always experienced many difficulties, he needed many Gods, Devils and Evils to blame.
But as Intelligent Man’s understanding grew, he realised that there could not be many powers, as the Cause of Everything must begin with one, Unity. But to this day, Man has had a misguided idea of Unity. We’re taught and preached Unity, yet at the same time we are taught Duality. We are taught that Good comes from one place and Evil from another, a duality of Heaven and Hell, Good and Evil or God and The Devil. A Universe divided against itself. The belief in duality has robbed theology of power and has polluted philosophy with untruths; it has divided science against itself and has made countless thousands go through life with saddened hearts. The belief in duality has given rise in theology to the idea of a God and a devil, each with equal power to impose upon man a blessing or a curse, and men have worshiped a devil just as they ever worshiped God. Many men and teachers of Scriptures have claimed to be teaching the Word of God by preaching a fear of damnation. A threatening chant of “follow my word, the Word of God, or be cast into the darkness, thrown to the fire and burn in Hell” This is an appalling thought, and an even more appalling way to teach! Yes it gets attention, but to what end? To congregate a group of poor individuals to fall to their knees in fear of destruction and condemnation is a desperate act, and a desperate way to teach. In their defence, such lessons must be taught from the belief that they speak the truth.
But the time has come for a clearer understanding of the true Nature of God. That there is a God is difficult to deny, but a God of Vengeance and Hate? A God of Destruction and Rage? Could we truly believe that such a God exists, and keep our sanity? The most that we can believe about such a God, is that there is no such being. The belief in duality has also robbed science, in that it has created Energy and Matter; i.e., a dual universe. However, modern science is rapidly giving out a different idea of the universe; for with the passing of matter into a hypothetical and theoretical ether there is but little left on which to hang any belief in materialism. We now are told that all matter is in a constant state of flow; that it all comes from one source; and that it will eventually return to that source. The world is waking up to the fact that things are not what they appear to be, what is matter? What is form? What is life? What this life is, science does not attempt to explain. This has been left to theology, and whether or not it has been delegated to those competent to handle the problem time alone will tell. The difficulty of true philosophy has been the necessity of explaining Creation with a single or Unitary Cause. We live in a world of constant change. Things come and go continuously; forms appear only to disappear; things happen only to stop happening; and it is no wonder that we have believed that there were many causes to these unexplained things. The philosophers of all times have had great difficulty explaining how just One Cause could manifest Itself in many forms without dividing or breaking up the One. This has not been easy, yet, when understood, the explanation becomes very apparent.
Jesus taught us that, “God Dwells Within Us.” How can everything be of One, First Cause? And how could God be in Me, in You and in everyone and everything, and still be One God? Everything we know will always go back to one. Of Man, if we could trace our ancestors back through All Intelligent Man, we would find the First, the One who said “I AM”. All life on earth goes back to the First. The First Cause of everything must then be One. If God created everything, God or Life, as First Cause can only be One. Life cannot be divided by itself, there can only be No Life or Life, there cannot be Half a Life. If it is one then it can have no shape or form, it must be infinite. If it had sides, a top and bottom, it would have to be in something, and if it was in something, it would have been created and then not be, First Cause. If it has no form, no outer shape then what we see, must be within it. And any change we see, must be as a result of a conscious change within it. There is but one Principle or Consciousness pervading the entire Universe, occupying all space, and being the same in kind at every point of its presence. It is all powerful, all wisdom and always present. All thoughts and things are within Itself. It is all in all.
The Cosmic Mind There is one consciousness in the universe able to think, and since it is just one, we can say that it has complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things, it is an Omniscient consciousness When it thinks, its thoughts become objective things to it, it’s subconscious acts upon the physical world, it is Word or Law. This consciousness has great or unlimited authority, an almighty or infinite power, we could say it is, as God or Omnipotent.. It has no form, no beginning and no end, all manifestation of physical form are within it, all time and all space. This consciousness is Omnipresent, all around us and ever present. As this consciousness is omnipresent, it must be present within every individual; each individual must be a manifestation of that Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Consciousness. As there is only one consciousness able to think, it follows that your consciousness is identical to the Universal Consciousness, or, in other words, All Mind is One Mind. The consciousness that focuses in your brain is the same consciousness, which focuses in the brains of every other individual. Each individual is an individual part of the Universal, or Cosmic Mind. The Universal Mind is potential energy; and it can manifest only through the individual, and the individual can manifest only through the Universal. They are one. The ability of the individual to think is his ability to act on the Universal and bring it into manifestation. Man consciousness consists only in the ability of man to think.
Mind in itself is believed to be a subtle form of static energy, from which arises the activities called “thought,” which is the dynamic phase of mind. Mind is static energy, thought is dynamic energy, the two phases of the same thing. Thought vibration is formed by converting static mind into dynamic mind. All attributes of the Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent Universal Mind, or God, must be present at all times in their potential form in every individual. So, when the individual thinks, the thought is compelled by its nature to embody itself in a condition, which will correspond with the thought. Every thought therefore is a cause and every condition an effect; for this reason it is absolutely essential that you control your thoughts so as to bring forth only desirable conditions. All power is from within, and is absolutely under your control; it comes through exact knowledge and by the voluntary exercises of exact principles.
Spirituality and Science Can we have a belief in Spirituality and Science or do the two, completely contradict each other? If Spirituality is based on faith and belief alone, if it is unchangeable and abides strict rules and can not grow, then it would be a contradiction. Religion however, is based on faith and belief alone, is unchangeable and abides strict rules and cannot grow, it is religion that contradicts science, and has always done so. It is Religion that for thousands of years has kept scientific thinkers locked away. It is Religion that has executed scholars because their scientific findings were looked upon as heresy. Spirituality is not a Religious believe, but is the seeking of higher levels of experience, asking the deepest questions, and seeking the true “self.” Spirituality is in no way contrary to science. In fact, since science is such a productive method of discovering new truths, it can be used for spiritual exploration and discovery. After all, there can only be one truth that explains creation and our evolving universe, but there may be many pathways, to reveal one truth. So how does Science view Spirituality? Historically science has been rejected, humiliated, persecuted and ridiculed, but today it enjoys the freedom to discover and develop. But as soon as scientific academic institutions were established they rejected and ridiculed anything spiritual, if it could not be proven by a mathematical formula it couldn’t be true. Science dealt with mass as mass, and ignored all spiritual matters, but things are changing. Just as religion had to succumb to scientific knowledge, so now, science is beginning to unravel the 43
mysteries of the universe with Quantum Physics and their latest findings are stretching science into the realms of spirituality. A Quantum View Quantum Science is going beyond the probe of atoms, and exploring the weird and wacky. New words are entering science, new ideas, theories and dimensions, String Theory (dancing, unobservable, vibrational waves of energy) and Membrane Theory (Multiple universes, carved up into slices, living side by side, all conduced by?) are giving room to explore what is known as the Mtheory which is undertaking to prove the unity of Gravity, Electromagnetism, Weak and Strong nuclear forces. The deeper Quantum Physicists explore, the closer they encircle metaphysical philosophy. They are realizing there are higher realities within infinite dimensions of intelligent vibrational energy. Some theorists claim to have uncovered eleven dimensions to our universe. Some Quantum Physicists even go so far as to state the dimensions of the universe may be infinite. At the same time they are theorizing on parallel universes that live side by side with our universe. Perhaps an infinite number of universes? If this is proven to be true it will explain why our world was not formed by chance, for if there is an infinite number of universes, then it stands to common sense at least one would contain intelligent life as found here on earth. It can be no fluke, because of the infinite variety of universes. The formula to create our universe must differ from each and every other universe, in the same manner as no two humans are identical and each has their own free will to act within an inescapable framework.
The Wacky World of Quantum Science Einstein was one of the first to go Quantum, here are some of his ideas and theories, which have become Law. Your body contains trillions of atoms, of many different elements. There are atoms of hydrogen and oxygen, carbon and nitrogen,...but your body also contains many atoms of calcium, nickel, potassium, iron...even gold! In all, there are 92 different types of atoms, most of which can be found in the molecules that make up the tissues of your body. Since we know that when the universe formed, the only elements around were hydrogen and helium, where did all these other types of atoms come from? The answer is quite startling...all of the atoms in your body, other than helium and hydrogen, were manufactured in the center of a supernova...a star that once existed, but destroyed itself in a gigantic explosion! To understand how this is possible, we need to look at what atoms are. The simplest atom is hydrogen, which contains a nucleus composed of one proton, circled by one moving electron. The next simplest atom, helium, has a nucleus with 2 protons, and is circled by 2 electrons. The biggest naturally occurring atom is uranium, with 92 protons, and 92 electrons. (For simplicity, we will ignore the fact that these atoms also contain neutrons in their nuclei.) It is possible for small atoms to combine to form bigger ones...but only of degrees foundunder in theintense center heat of a and star.pressure...the This process ismillions called nuclear fusion. Large stars will be so hot in their interior that hydrogen atoms are forced together to form helium atoms, helium atoms are forced together to form still larger atoms,...and so on. Eventually, large stars will contain in their interior, shells of many different heavier atoms, some as big as iron (57 protons). 45
If the star is large enough, when it runs out of fuel it will collapse in on itself. The relatively cooler outer layers hit the incredibly hot interior, and a massive explosion occurs, called a supernova. Stars that do this don't live very long...while a smaller star like our sun may burn for tens of billions of years, a massive star that is destined to become a supernova may burn out and explode in a matter of a few million years...a ten-thousandth of the lifetime of our sun. During this explosion, temperatures rise once again; coupled with intense pressure, this is enough energy to force larger atoms to combine, creating all of the heavier elements from iron to uranium! This explosion is so large that it propels the contents of the star out into space...including all the heavy elements it has made. Vast clouds of atoms of all types remain, where once there was a star. We know that at the beginning of the universe, there was only hydrogen and helium. Massive stars formed from these gases, burned out in a few million years, and spewed the heavy elements they created into space around them. This process has occurred over and over since the universe began some 17 billion years ago. We can observe it still happening today, in our large telescopes. When our star (the sun) and its family of planets formed from interstellar gases some 5 billion years ago, those gases were already well seeded with heavy elements formed in supernovas that occurred in our interstellar neighbourhood in the previous 12 billion years. All of the heavier elements that went into forming the earth, the ground, the biosphere,... everything... came from this interstellar gas cloud. And so did all the elements in your body! E=MC2 Albert Einstein is perhaps the most famous scientist of this century. One of his most well-known accomplishments is the formula E=MC2 46
Despite its familiarity, many people don't really understand what it means. One of Einstein's great insights was to realize that matter and energy are really different forms of the same thing. Matter can be turned into energy, and energy into matter. For example, consider a simple hydrogen atom, basically composed of a single proton. This subatomic particle has a mass of 0.000 000 000 000 000 000 000 000 001 672 kg. This is a tiny mass indeed. But in everyday quantities of matter there are a lot of atoms! For instance, in one kilogram of pure water, the mass of hydrogen atoms amounts to just slightly more than 111 grams, or 0.111 kg. Einstein's formula tells us the amount of energy this mass would be equivalent to, if it were all suddenly turned into energy. It says that to find the energy, you multiply the mass by the square of the speed of light, this number being 300,000,000 meters per second (a very large number): = 0.111 x 300,000,000 x 300,000,000 = 10,000,000,000,000,000 Joules This is an incredible amount of energy! A Joule is not a large unit of energy ... one Joule is about the energy released when you drop a textbook to the floor. But the amount of energy in 30 grams of hydrogen atoms is equivalent to burning hundreds of thousands of gallons of gasoline! If you consider all the energy in the full kilogram of water, which also contains oxygen atoms, the total energy equivalent is close to 10 million gallons of gasoline! Can all this energy really be released? Has it ever been? The only way for ALL this energy to be released is for the kilogram of water to be totally annihilated. This process involves the complete destruction of matter, and occurs only when that matter meets an equal amount of antimatter ... a substance composed of mass with a negative charge.
Antimatter does exist; it is observable as single subatomic particles in radioactive decay, and has been created in the laboratory. But it is rather short-lived (!), since it annihilates itself and an equal quantity of ordinary matter as soon as it encounters anything. For this reason, it has not yet been made in measurable quantities, so our kilogram of water can't be turned into energy by mixing it with “antiwater.” At least, not yet. Another phenomenon peculiar to small elementary particles like protons is that they combine. A single proton forms the nucleus of a hydrogen atom. Two protons are found in the nucleus of a helium atom. This is how the elements are formed ... all the way up to the heaviest naturally occurring substance, uranium, which has 92 protons in its nucleus. It is possible to make two free protons (Hydrogen nuclei) come together to make the beginnings of a helium nucleus. This requires that the protons be hurled at each other at a very high speed. This process occurs in the sun, but can also be replicated on earth with lasers, magnets, or in the center of an atomic bomb. The process is called nuclear fusion. What makes it interesting is that when the two protons are forced to combine, they don't need as much of their energy (or mass). Two protons stuck together have less mass than two single separate protons! When the protons are forced together, this extra mass is released ... as energy! Typically this amounts to about 7% of the total mass, converted to an amount of energy predictable using the formula. Elements heavier than iron are unstable. Some of them are very unstable! This means that their nuclei, composed of many positively charged protons, which want to repel from each other, are liable to fall apart at any moment! We call atoms like this radioactive.
Uranium, for example, is radioactive. Every second, many of the atoms in a chunk of uranium are falling apart. When this happens, the pieces, which are now new elements (with fewer protons) are LESS massive in total than the srcinal uranium atoms. The extra mass disappears as energy ... again according to the formula! This process is called nuclear fission. Manhattan Project Both these nuclear reactions release a small portion of the mass involved as energy. Large amounts of energy! You are probably more familiar with their uses. Nuclear fusion is what powers a modern nuclear warhead. Nuclear fission (less powerful) is what happens in an atomic bomb (like the ones used against Japan in WWII), or in a nuclear power plant. Albert Einstein was able to see where an understanding of this formula would lead. Although peaceful by nature and politics, he helped write a letter to the President of the United States, urging him to fund research into the development of an atomic bomb ... before the Nazis or Japan developed their own first. The result was the Manhattan Project, which did in fact produce the first tangible evidence of ... the atomic bomb! Einstein's also came up with ideas about time, the Theory of Relativity. Strange things can happen when you move Fast...things you won't learn about in high school courses, and won't experience while driving down the road in your pick-up. But these things are still very real, and definitely Weird! Light rays travel very quickly...they cover about 300,000 kilometres every second. This is as fast as anything can travel; nothing can move as fast as light particles. But if it were possible to build a very powerful vehicle that could move almost as fast as light...perhaps 200,000 km every
second...then anyone observing this vehicle as it flashed past would notice some extremely peculiar things happening to it. The vehicle would appear shorter than normal, and in fact, it would be shorter. If the vehicle were ordinarily 3 metres long, it might now be only 2 metres in length. If you were able to weigh the vehicle, you would discover that it weighed much more than normal. Anybody riding in it would weigh many times their normal weight.. However, the people in the vehicle would not feel any heavier, or any thinner. They would feel and look normal to themselves...but if they looked out the window, they would see the rest of the world moving by, and it would appear to be shrunk. If the vehicle were to move faster and faster, getting closer and closer to the speed of light, it and the people in it would continue to get thinner and thinner, while at the same time getting heavier and heavier! These strange occurrences, as described by Albert Einstein, can actually be observed. It is not yet possible to build a vehicle that will go this fast, of course...the fastest spacecraft only cover about 15-20 kilometres in a second. But tiny particles called 'cosmic rays' that are given off by the sun...the ones that cause the Northern Lights when they hit earth's magnetic field...move almost as fast as light, and their mass can be measured. When they move that fast, their mass IS much heavier than normal. A much more dramatic effect of moving fast is what happens to time. It seems that the faster you move, the more slowly time runs! At normal, every-day speeds (airplane speed, for instance), the effect of 'time slowing down' is just barely measurable. You could fly non-stop around the world in an airplane, and because of your increase in speed, time would run slower for you. Everyone on the plane, all the watches and clocks, the plane itself...all would be a small fraction of a second younger than if they had not gone anywhere! That experiment has been done. Want to live longer? Spend lots of time on high-speed planes, and time will move more slowly for you. You might live 2 seconds longer than you would have if you'd stayed on the ground. 50
Things get much more interesting if you fly off in a spacecraft that can go really fast...perhaps 200.000 km per second. Now time is really slowing down. Suppose you and a friend are both exactly 16 years old. He stays on earth, but you go off for a trip in our very fast spacecraft. Fifty years go by on earth. (It's a long way to the nearest stars!) You return to find your friend is now 65 years old. You, however, have experienced a phenomenon known as time dilation. Time has been running more slowly for you, in the fastmoving spacecraft. According to you, the trip took only ten years...and you are just 26 years old! This effect would seem impossible...yet it has been demonstrated to be a fact. Once again, small particles can be observed and measured. Many are radioactive, which means they disintegrate with clockwork precision. The time it takes them to disintegrate can be accurately measured. When these particles are accelerated to high ('relativistic') speeds as in our example above, they live longer before disintegrating! It has been almost 100 years since these theories were first put forward by Einstein and others, and since then they have become accepted as fact by scientists world-wide. More evidence of their validity is also apparent from studies of objects in far distant space. Uncertainty Principle Quantum Physics and their latest findings are stretching science into the realms of metaphysical principles. In ancient Greece there was a controversy about the nature of light. Euclid, Ptolemy and others thought that "light" was some sort of ray that travels from the eye to the observed object. The atomists and Aristotle assumed the reverse. Nearly 800 years after Ptolemy, circa 965 CE, in Basra in what is now Iraq, Abu Ali al-Hasan Ibn al-Haytham (Alhazen) settled the controversy with a clever argument. He said that if you look at the Sun for a long time you will burn your eyes: this is only possible if the light is coming from the Sun to our eyes, not vice versa. 51
In 1672 another controversy erupted over the nature of light: Newton argued that light was some sort of a particle, so that light from the sun reaches the earth because these particles could travel through the vacuum. Hooke and Huygens argued that light was some sort of wave. In 1801 Thomas Young put the matter to experimental test by doing a double slit experiment for light. The result was an interference pattern. Thus, Newton must have been wrong: light had to be a wave. The double-slit experiment contains a lot of the best aspects of the weirdness of quantum physics, for example a light shining through a small hole or slit (like in a pinhole camera) creates a spot of light on the screen (or film, or detector). However, light shown through two slits that are close together creates not two spots on the screen, but rather a series of alternating bright and dark lines with the brightest line in the exact middle of this interference pattern. This shows that light is a wave since such a pattern results from the interference of the waves coming from each slit. However, in the year 1900 physicist Max Planck showed that certain other effects in physics could only be explained by light being a particle. Many experiments followed to also show that light was indeed also a particle (a "photon") and Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921 for his work showing that the particle nature of light could explain the "photoelectric effect." This was an experiment whereby low energy (red) light, when shining onto a photoelectric material, caused the material to emit low energy (slow moving) electrons, while high energy (blue) light caused the same material to emit high energy (fast moving) electrons. However, lots of red light only ever produced more low energy electrons, never any high-energy electrons.
In other words, the energy could not be "saved up" but rather must be absorbed by the electrons in the photoelectric material individually. The conclusion was that light came in packets, little quantities, and behaved thus as a particle as well as a wave. So light is both a particle and a wave. OK, kind of unexpected, but perhaps not totally weird. But the double slit experiment had another trick up its sleeve. One could send one photon (or "quantum" of energy) through a single slit at a time, with a sufficiently long interval in between, and eventually a spot builds up that looks just like the one produced when a very intense (many photons) light was sent through the slit. But then a strange thing happened. When one sends a single photon at a time (waiting between each laser pulse, for example) toward the screen when both slits are open, rather than two spots eventually building up opposite the two slit openings, what eventually builds up is the interference pattern of alternating bright and dark lines! Hmm... how can this be, if only one photon was sent through the apparatus at a time? The answer is that each individual photon must - in order to have produced an interference pattern -- have gone through both slits! This, the simplest of quantum weirdness experiments, has been the basis of many of the unintuitive interpretations of quantum physics. We can see, perhaps, how physicists might conclude, for example, that a particle of light is not a particle until it is measured at the screen. It turns out that the particle of light is rather a wave before it is measured. But it is not a wave in the ocean-wave sense. It is not a wave of matter but rather, it turns out that it is apparently a wave of probability. That is, the elementary particles making up the trees, people, and planets -- what we see around 53
us -- are apparently just distributions of likelihood until they are measured (that is, measured or observed). So much for the Victorian view of solid matter! Matter Being Empty The shock of matter being largely empty space may have been extreme enough -- if an atom were the size of a huge cathedral, then the electrons would be dust particles floating around at all distances inside the building, while the nucleus, or center of the atom, would be smaller than a sugar cube. But with quantum physics, even this tenuous result would be superseded by the atom itself not really being anything that exists until it is measured. One might rightly ask, then, what does it mean to measure something? And this brings us to the Uncertainly Principle first discovered by Werner Heisenberg. Dr. Heisenberg wrote, "Some physicist would prefer to come back to the idea of an objective real world whose smallest parts exist objectively in the same sense as stones or trees exist independently of whether we observe them. This however is impossible." Entanglement Entanglement is a strange feature of quantum physics, the science of the very small. It’s possible to link together two quantum particles – photons of light or atoms, for example – in a special way that makes them effectively two parts of the same entity. You can then separate them as far as you like, and a change in one is instantly reflected in the other. This odd, faster than light link, is a fundamental aspect of quantum science – Erwin Schrödinger, who came up with the name “entanglement” called it “the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics.” 54
Entanglement is fascinating in its own right, but what makes it really special are dramatic practical applications that have become apparent in the last few years. Is it possible that entangled particles are not actually in immediate communication, but are simply programmed to behave in the same way? Much like twins separated at birth who live eerily similar lives - assume the same professions or marry similar spouses. So what is Entanglement? If you take some property of a particle, the equivalent of color, say the spin of an electron, it doesn’t have the value pre-programmed. It has a range of probabilities as to what the answer might be, but until you actually measure it, there is no fixed value. What happens with a pair of entangled electrons is you measure the spin of one. Until that moment, neither of them had a spin with a fixed value. But the instant you take the measurement on one, the other immediately fixes its spin (say to the opposite value). These quantum bits were every possible color until you looked at one. Only then did it become pink, and the other instantly took on another color. Einstein among other scientists could not accept quantum entanglement. It seems to throw out the whole notion of cause and effect, so how confident are physicists that quantum entanglement exists and what are the implications for science and the scientific method? Einstein had problems with the whole of quantum physics – which is ironic, as it was based on his Nobel Prize winning paper on the photoelectric effect. What he didn’t like was the way quantum particles don’t have fixed values for their properties until they are observed – he couldn’t relate to a universe where probability ruled.
That’s why he famously said that God doesn’t play dice. I think an even better quote, less well known, was when he wrote: “I find the idea quite intolerable that an electron exposed to radiation should choose of its own free will, not only its moment to jump off, but also its direction. In that case, I would rather be a cobbler, or even an employee in a gaming house, than a physicist.” Einstein believed that underneath these probabilities were fixed, hidden realities we just couldn’t see. That was why he dreamed up the idea of entanglement in 1935. It was to show that either quantum theory was incomplete, because it said there was no hidden information, or it was possible to instantly influence something at a distance. As that seemed incredible, he thought it showed that quantum theory was wrong. It did take a long time to prove that entanglement truly existed. It wasn’t until the 1980s that it was clearly demonstrated. But it has been shown without doubt that this is the case. Entanglement exists, and is being used in very practical ways. Entanglement doesn’t throw away the concept of cause and effect. But it does underline the fact that quantum particles really do only have a range of probabilities on the values of their properties rather than fixed values. And while it seems to contradict Einstein’s special relativity, which says nothing can travel faster than light, it’s more likely that entanglement challenges our ideas of what distance and time really mean. Similarly, entanglement is no challenge to the scientific method. We need to use a different kind of math, but this is still the same science.
The Law of Attraction and Affirming A simple definition of positive affirmation states, “An affirmation is a form of autosuggestion in which a statement of a desirable intention or condition of the world or the mind is deliberately meditated on and repeated in order to implant it in the mind”. Is this just some New Age or Far Eastern idea of meditating and planting seeds of reality disillusionment, or is the idea of affirmation, backed by Neural Science? Although the idea of the use of positive affirmation and meditation is often associated to some New Age “hocus pocus”, nothing could be farther from the truth. These ideas are based on sound solid medical facts, and deal with the science of your mind and neural biology. The joining or wiring together of brain cells, is often referred to as, “cells that fire together, wire together,” and the theory explains that, when we learn, groups of cells that are activated together, grow a stronger connection. This grouping of common brain cells gives us our learned behaviour, it allows us to walk, talk, run, write, sing, in fact any learned activity we do, seemingly without thinking. But it goes much deeper than that; every bodily function and every aspect of our personality is in the wiring of these groups of brain cells. Even before you were born your brain arranged cells or neurons in particular orders, testing and rewiring its circuits, routing and rerouting its electrical signals. The and day clean you were born, you were programmed to function, to pump blood, control an army of defence cells, feel hunger, digest and dare I see it, fill a nappy. From this day on you started to make use of your senses, collecting data, analysing and testing. You started to recognise
smell, sound, taste and sites and form Neuron Circuits to help you identify these things again. Was the smell good, how did I react to that taste, was this sound pleasant and did this look nice. Whatever the reaction was the first time around, will probably be the same again, the circuit is formed, the cells are structured, the brain is wired. You test reaction and response, that’s why babies cry, you test taste and texture, you learn about pain, fear, love and laughter, and each action and re-action is wired in for future use. So how does this process work? The process of wiring habit, pattern or memory into your brain is in two steps. As I have already mentioned, “At birth, you start to make use of your senses, collecting data, analysing and testing,” this is the first process of learning. This is the action of the objective or conscious mind, testing, retesting and programming data. The second step takes place once all the data has been passed, and all responses verified, this is then belief, we know the fact to be true and the response to be appropriate and we then pass the fact to the subjective or subconscious mind, to be programmed in biologically. So why do we need a Positive Affirmation, if we are passing facts to our subconscious? Quite simply, to evolve our intellect, to achieve, to overcome and to grow as a human race. Now that’s quite a statement, but I’ll go further, “Positive Affirmation is the key to all advancement and all achievement, without exception.” You see there is quite a biological flaw with our outstandingly clever bodies, wiring facts into our brain means that we can achieve and remember almost anything. The analysis of data, 58
testing of response and the programming of our circuits seems a flawless system, but there is one big, giant monster of a stumbling block. What happens if the data was wrong and the response defective or inappropriate? So how do we overcome faulty facts? Well to coin a phrase, it’s just like riding a bike! But seriously it is, just like riding a bike, and how you learnt to achieve this marvellous feat is the answer to the problem. Riding a bike is one of the most unnatural things to do, your subconscious is already in charge of your balance and speed, the data has been tested, retested analysed and programmed as fact. You know how to stand up, walk and run. But a bike? Balance on a couple of square centimetres and propel yourself forward at three times the speed? I don’t think so! “But you know it can be done, you practise, you tell your body to take the pain each time you fall, you are determined, you will achieve, overcome, and ride this bike”. This is a Positive Affirmation at work! To help you see this as a positive affirmation let me make the statement personal lets go back to our time learning to ride a bike and say the statement to ourselves, as if we were still learning. “But I know it can be done, I will practise, and tell my body to take the pain each time I fall, I am determined, I will achieve, I will overcome, and ride this bike”. A powerful Positive Affirmation! Now lets imagine that you live in 1790 and a Frenchman gave you his new invention “The Celerifere”, this was one of the earliest bikes, with no steering.
Your beliefs and programming about balance and speed would be the same as they were when you actually learnt to ride a bike, but your experience would be different. You would never of seen one, never have witnessed it work and I’m sure you would believe, that the idea of a bike seemed an outrageous way to move. How then, would your “Positive Affirmation” read? It would probably go something like this. “But I’m not sure if this can be done, I don’t know how much I can practise, and take this pain each time I fall, I will never do this, I can’t achieve or overcome and ride this bike”. Hardly a Positive Affirmation, but an Affirmation all the same. OK, so it’s easy to see how we can use a Positive Affirmation to achieve a physical goal, but it surely can’t make me earn more money, find love or be happy. Or can it? This is the second flaw in our biological make up. Your subconscious does not think, it only accepts, it cannot decide. Your subconscious discharges chemicals into your bloodstream every time certain circuits are activated, and you will perceive these chemicals as emotion, but your subconscious doesn’t feel, it does not know whether these chemicals are good or bad, wanted or unwanted If you’re in debt you will be all to familiar with the dread of the arrival of the postman, the feeling of another bill, another demand and then the bill arrives, the letter is opened, yet another demand or final notice, and you experience the feelings of despair and depression. The event is anticipated and the relevant circuit is activated, the corresponding chemical is released and you perceive the chemical as emotion, as dread. The event happens and another circuit is 60
activated, the corresponding chemical is released, and you perceive the chemical as emotion, as despair or depression. But this then grows more powerfully as our bodies start to crave this chemical rush, and just like the smoker, who’s body crave the rush of nicotine or the drinker the rush of alcohol, your body is crying out for the rush of proteins that give you these emotions of dread, despair and depression and you will keep moving towards the things your body needs. Our subconscious, does not analyse this, it does not know that you do not want this result, why should it? After all, you are the trainer, you set this in motion by practising the event every morning, you analysed it, and passed it on, therefore it must be true. This is why the abused, seems to move from one abuser to another, or the failure to more failure and the broken heart to the heartbreaker. Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, if you cannot see that like attracts like, surely you can see that what you think you like, you will keep moving towards by default. By your very own actions, you are what you think about. You have today, built your destiny for tomorrow, and you will continue to become the things you fear the most, that is, until you respond, until you stand up and shout out. “I know it can be done, I will practise, and tell myself each time I fall, I am determined, I will achieve, I will overcome and ride towards my chosen destiny” “I will be, what I will to be”
Using Positive Affirmations It is my understanding that most people are or have been, fully able to make bad use of “Negative Affirmations” or “Negative SelfScripts.” But before we can become self-affirming, we need to learn about the effects of negativism in our lives. Negative self-scripts are the: Negative beliefs you have about yourself and of which you remind yourself daily. Negative statements about yourself, which sprinkle your everyday conversation. Self-deprecating remarks that influence your behaviour or beliefs. Negative descriptions given to you by members of your family of srcin or peer group when you were younger onto which you hold even to this day. Negative feedback you get from your spouse, boss, teacher, colleagues, children, parents, relatives, or others that you take personally and incorporate into your personal belief system. Negative self-images you have of your body, looks, face, weight, colouring, hair, feet, or other parts of your body, which as you visualize, influence your presentation of self to others. Negative assessment you or others have made of your competency, skills, ability, knowledge, intelligence, creativity, or common sense. You have agreed with this internally and, thus, believe it true of you.
Negative stories about your past behaviour, failures, or performances that you systematically run over in your mind and which influence your current conduct. Negative attitudes about the possibility of your achievement of success in your life; these influence your motivation, effort, and drive for attainment of goals. Negative visualizations you have of your current status or state in life to your personal detriment. Feelings of anger, resentment, hostility or rage you feel toward others for real or imagined mistreatment. This so immobilizes you that your emotional growth gets stunted and you feel negatively about both yourself and life in general. Feelings of guilt for real or imagined debilitating wrongs you have committed that prevent positive self-valuing thoughts. Negative prophecies that you or others have made about yourself, your future, your success, your relationships, your family, or your health; these haunt you as you face a daily struggle to "win'' in life. Ways in which you deny yourself rewards for your goodness, hard work and caring by: (1) not taking time to enjoy the fruits of your labour, (2) living in a style of self denial and austerity and (3) being afraid to let down your guard and relax, lest you fail to achieve your ‘Big Pay Off.’ Feelings of over-responsibility with which you burden yourself. This includes the feeling that others in your life will never be able to fully take care of themselves and that you are "responsible'' for them no matter what. Dread and fear you have when facing your future; the belief that you do not have what it takes to survive or to be successful in whatever circumstances you face.
Feelings of failure you harbour about real or imagined mistakes in the past and your "assured'' failures in the future. Feelings of jealousy you harbour toward others whom you perceive (real or imagined) to be more successful, prettier, luckier, better liked, smarter, more talented, more creative, and generally better off than you. Feelings of inferiority you harbour about yourself and the belief that no matter what you do in life, it will never be ``good enough.'' Feelings that there is someone in your life (e.g., your spouse, one of your parents, a family member, a former teacher, a peer, co-worker, a boss) from whom you are still waiting to receive recognition of your worth, your goodness, your competency, your beauty, and your overall qualities. What I shall undertake here is to give you the “Positive Affirmation” structure to help you to challenge and undermine your subconscious negative self-scripts. The importance of each structured positive affirmation is “belief,” you must believe. The bigger the gap between the perceived negative inner truth and the expressed positive affirmation, the more challenging, and possibly the more damaging, this exercise will be, therefore, start this exercise using small believable positive affirmations and practise. Repeat positive affirmations with passion and conviction and for as long as you do so, you will consistently breakdown your subconscious negative beliefs, no matter how “set in concrete” they may seem. If you are uncomfortable with an affirmation, take it down a step, listen to your emotions, far better to chip away in small steps, than fall at the foot of an “Everest” of a negative, and undermine the whole process. Similarly, if you are experiences a sense of exhilaration at an affirmation you are responding in a way that “your mind knows this to be true,” the affirmation is working. 64
Starting this process is the first step, small steps are easier, but finishing each step is the key. What shapes can positive self-affirmations take? I statements: which are one-line statements that can be repeated to cover three areas: I am: A statement of who you are This is a positive affirmation of a real state of being that exists in you. You can achieve a full list of ‘I am’ statements by taking a personal positive inventory of your attributes, strengths, talents, and competencies. Examples may include: I am strong I am intelligent
I am enthusiastic I am relaxed
I can: A statement of your potential This is a positive affirmation of your ability to accomplish goals. It is a statement of your belief in your power to grow, to change, and to help yourself. ‘I can’ statements could be developed after you have develop a set of short-term goals. Examples may include: I can lose weight I can stop smoking
I can grow I can heal
I will: A statement of positive change in your life This is a positive affirmation of a change you want to achieve. It is a positive statement of what you want to happen. It is a success prophecy. ‘I will’ statements are developed after you have set your priorities for the short-term goals you have set.
Examples may include: I will like myself better each day. I will gain emotional strength each day. I will lose weight each day. This is a kind of ‘reprogramming the hard drive’, changes happen quickly as you begin to think with a positive mental attitude, this will then start to reflect in your external environment and experience. Self-affirmation statements These forms of affirmation are words, phrases, or statements written on index cards and placed where you can see them daily and be reminded of positive aspects about yourself. Every time you see these affirmation cards they will remind you to affirm yourself about these positive qualities or attributes. State all affirmations in a positive way. Suggested places for affirmation cards: mirror in bathroom mirror on dresser
dashboard of car desk at office
Affirmation word examples: bright creative intelligent
capable strong beautiful
Affirmation phrase examples: think happy be calm take action
take it easy think wisely work smart

The Law of Attraction and Visualizing Visualization is the process of making mental images, and the image is the model, which will serve as a pattern from which all future things will emerge. Could an architect build a building without visualization, or the engineer a machine? It is the mental image, which is the seed of all ideas, all progress and all future development; such is the importance of visualization As it is for the architect or the engineer, we also need to create a mental picture of our own goals and attainments. In meeting our own goals and desires we will do well not to underestimate the importance of visualization. Our emotion plays a big part of any visualization exercise and it is important to start with good positive thoughts and feelings. When we feel good we can attract more feelings of feeling good. Feelings of health, wealth, prosperity and happiness will bring to you, health, wealth, prosperity and happiness, such is the power of positive thinking. In much the same way as feeling unwell, poor and unhappy will bring you sickness, debt and sadness, such is the power of negative thinking. Our emotional guidance system is there to help us understand what alignment we are in. All emotions can be categorized into two areas; Feelings of happiness, love, abundance, joy and health are positive emotions. Feelings of anger, fear, hatred, and poverty are feeling of negative emotions. 68
When we are experiencing positive emotions, we are in alignment with the universe and our visualizations become clear. However, if we try to visualize when we are out of alignment, experiencing negative emotions, our visualizations become clouded with doubt and we end up attracting more negative circumstances. The importance of visualization is clear, but so is the role of emotion. Before beginning any visualization exercise, you should bring yourself in alignment, you should be experiencing feelings of happiness, love, abundance, joy and health. A good way to do this is through feelings of gratitude. Positive Affirmations of desires are more powerful when we use gratitude, to reinforce them. So we should add to our affirmation the words; I am so happy and grateful for my life that I ……… So if I was using an affirmation to manifest my dream home, I would state my affirmation like this; I am so happy and grateful for my life that I have been provided with the wealth and prosperity to buy my new home Another way would be to write down the things that you have now, that you are grateful for. By focusing on the things that we are grateful for, the Law of Attraction has no alternative, but to bring you more of the same. And, as we begin to utilise the lessons we have learned thus far, and show gratitude for the things we attract, again, the Laws of Attraction will have no alternative, but to give us more of the same. Its an ever growing circle of, gratitude, good things, dreams, gratitude and even more good things, over and over.
The Master Key System, which has been at the forefront of Law of Attraction teaching, is based on a 24 week correspondence course, written by Charles Haanal. The importance of visualization was understood by Mr Haanel, and each of The Master Key Lessons is followed by a visualization exercise, where by, the student would gain full control of their conscious and sub-conscious mind. It is the teachings of Charles Haanel that forms the spine of our own Law of Attraction Training Program, Unlock The Power of You The following is a quote from Charles Haanal, which I think sums up visualization. “Visualization is the mechanism of the attachment, which you require. Visualization is a very different process from seeing; seeing is physical, and is therefore related to the objective world, the ‘world without,’ but Visualization is a product of the imagination, and is therefore a product of the subjective mind, the ‘world within’. It therefore possesses vitality; it will grow. The thing visualized will manifest itself in form. The mechanism is perfect; it was created by the Master Architect who ‘doeth all things well,’ but unfortunately sometimes the operator is inexperienced or inefficient, but practice and determination will overcome this defect.” As Haanel highlights, most of us tend to think about the reality we are in, thus attracting more of that reality, rather than creating a new reality that we desire. The secret of any visualization exercise is to concentrate our mind on a new reality, without thinking about our current circumstances.
A beginners visualization exercise would involve these five simple steps; Find a quiet room and get into a comfortable position. Think of something, anything that brings you strong positive emotions of love, joy, or gratitude. (It can be the birth of a child, a promotion, a new pet, a relationship, etc. just remember it must be totally positive.) Re-live the experience until you can feel the joy in your entire body with all your senses. Got the idea? It is important to feel it, as this adds emphasis (and speed) to you manifesting your desires. Make sure all your senses are being used. What did it sound like, smell like, feel like, etc? When you're in a truly happy state, visualize what you want to create and see it as if it has already happened -- that you are driving that new car, living in that new home, enjoying that relationship. Really get into the feeling and use this experience to its fullest. Again use all your senses. Try to hear those ocean breezes, smell the scent of the pine trees, feel the touch of your fingers on the steering wheel of that car, taste that kiss, and see yourself enjoying that new car or relationship, etc. Got the idea? When you are done, say it out loud or write on a piece of paper, ‘I am so happy and grateful that.......’ and fill in the object of your desire. For example, ‘I am so happy and grateful that I have enough money to pay for anything I want and to travel anywhere, anytime.’ Then write or say, ‘It is done. And so it is.’ Say this in a confident and commanding tone and expect it to happen. You have now released it to the Universe so go about your day and forget about the ‘how's.’ This is where you must ‘Let go and let God’ as the saying goes. This is the true Art of
Allowing, the secret manifestation art, because you have given it over to God (The Universe). Remember this is the part where we often fail because we question or we keep noticing that we don’t have it yet. While these steps are of value they go nowhere near the training and practise that we find in Unlock The Power of You and I strongly urge you to consider joining this training program.
Goal Setting If you have something you wish to attract into your life, you must learn to “live in the spirit” of the thing wanted. In other words, you need to mentally experience it, and to do this; you need to be very specific. It was one of the greatest teachers of all who told us, “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” (Mark 11:24) To put that in a more modern context, I would say, “Whatever things you wish to attract to your life, visualize yourself already experiencing these things, and the Law of Attraction will bring them to you” Therefore, in order to experience things before we have them, we need to be very specific. However, we need to exercise a little caution here. Where as, it is important to be very specific about the things desired, it is as important to be very unspecific about how it will happen, this is the letting go bit. Many people fail to grasp this, particularly when they are trying to use the Law of Attraction to bring love to their lives. I get countless emails from people trying to attract a relationship with specific person, which is not the way the Law of Attraction works. What do I mean when I say “Live the spirit” of a thing? Charles Haanel’s teaches us to “Live the spirit of these things, until they become yours by right,” what he is saying here is the true secret to unlocking the Law of Attraction. The expression, “you must hold it in your head, before you hold it in your hand,” sums up quite well what Haanel means.
What he is telling us, is to visualize our goals to harness the power of the Law of Attraction, but to “live in the spirit” of a thing, is the true way of visualizing. To understand this idea better, let’s have a look at a simple goal setting exercise, and see where many people go wrong. For argument sake, let’s say that the goal is attracting a new car. Many people will have such a goal, and may try attracting a new car in the following way. In writing down such a goal, you could write the phrase, “I want to attract a new car into my life,” however, this goal is not very specific, so you would be better writing, “I want to attract a new ____________ car into my life,” (just fill in the blanks of the make and model). Many people would write their goals in this way and use all forms of visual and non-visual methods to enforce it, but their goal would never be reached! You see the Law of Attraction is driven by emotion, and the underlying emotion in this goal is “wanting”. Using a goal like this fails to manifest the object, but manifests a stronger feeling of wanting. To attract this new car into your life, you need to “live the spirit” of already having it. Your goal should read something like, “I am enjoying cruising around in my new ____________ car.” To enhance the feelings of having it now, I would take this much further. I would visit my car, take it for a test drive and experience the sensations of acceleration, comfort, sound, smell, music etc etc. I would take pictures of my new car from many angles, and better still with me in it. 74
I would make up affirmation statements and a vision board. I would daily visualize driving my new car, remembering every detail of the experience and “live the spirit” of already having it. What is a vision board? Vision Board, Dream Boards or Goal Boards is a very powerful way to use visualisation. A Vision Board is quite simply, a pin board, or large card with pictures of your dreams and desires; it should be colourful, fun and above all specific. If you want to visualise your dream home, go to the estate agents, view your dream property, take pictures and post them on your Vision Board. If you dream of a new car, be specific, what make?, what model?, what colour?, how old?, take pictures and post them on your Vision Board. Vision Boards can be quite basic, just made with scissors, glue, tons of magazines and online photos. Even better, If you have got a digital camera, get snapping, go and test drive your new convertible, get someone to take photos of you in it and stick them up. Do the same with your dream house, try on your new clothes, go sit in a new boat, bike, caravan, plane or whatever you dream of. Make it colourful and fun. Look at your Board as often as possible with focused intent. You will be surprised to see the things on your Vision Board show up in your life –sooner or later- providing you keep putting your intention on them and stay positive. By looking at your Vision Board on a consistent basis, you will manifest the life you truly desire and deserve!
How about creating your own online Vision Board, one that you could print, run as your screen saver or as your PC wallpaper. MyMasterBoard is the perfect tool to put your dreams in front of you every day; MyMasterBoard is one of the most effective tools to help you stay focused on what you want. The pictures and affirmations you select keep you on target with the areas that are meaningful to you.
Overcoming Failure The Law of Attraction says that we attract to our lives whatever we give our attention, energy and focus to, whether wanted or unwanted, that we attract from the outside what we resonate with, on the inside. In other words, we bring into our lives what we momentarily strongly focus upon. For many people when they first here about the Law of Attraction the idea of bringing anything they desired into their lives sounds quite exciting, “I can be, do and have anything I desire,” this is great I have plenty of desires, and all I have to do is order them with the universe. Weeks go by and where are all my things? I placed my order and haven’t got them yet! What is it with this Law of Attraction, I order my stuff and it just doesn’t turn up, am I ordering to much or am I just not a good attracter? If we read the definition of the Law of Attraction again, we can see that we bring into our lives whatever we give our attention, energy and focus to, whether wanted or unwanted! But why would I give my attention, energy and focus on unwanted things, that doesn’t make sense. Ah but it does, and we all do it. This is why your things aren’t turning up. When we look at Cause and Effect, we can see that the Cause is our thought, and the Effect, our reality. It is in this reality of now, possibly with debt, unhappiness, and dissatisfaction that we focus on. If you’re in debt you may know what you want and what you want to change, but your energy and focus is spent saving money, spending less and no more bills!!! 77
Your energy is debt and your focuses is on not enough, and guess what, you’re getting exactly what you ordered. We tend to live in effects, we experience effects around us, we think about the effects we see and when our focus and energy is on effects, the Law of Attraction obliges us by bringing more of the same, it’s a kind of cycle of reality attraction. It is no coincidence that someone experiencing illness, thinks and talks more of this experience, and seems to have more than his or her fair share of illness dealt to them. In much the same way as someone who has experienced an abusive relationship, seems to attract the same kind of abuse in each relationship they end up in. Similarly, a “successful” person dwells in the positive and enjoys life’s abundance with passion, bringing more and more of same experience into their lives. It not that successful people are good at using the Law of Attraction and unsuccessful people are not, anyone with the ability to think uses these Laws equally. It’s just that we tend to use Attraction by default and to break it, we must learn how to apply the Law of Attraction to bring us a more desired reality. To change our current circumstances we must change our thoughts, to succeed we must have the thought of success, the idea of success, the intension to succeed. We must conceive. This is great, all I have to do is think about being rich and I’ll be OK!! Not so fast! Thoughts alone will not be enough to make you rich, you have move towards the things you want. You want success, you’ve got to move towards it, you want love you’ve got to move towards it, you’ve got to give your attention, focus and energy on your desires so that the Law of Attraction can line them up for you.
“But if I focus my energy on a new business what happens if it all goes wrong, what if I don’t get the deal. In love what if I’m rejected?” These are thoughts that stop us moving forward, there is nothing wrong in being aware of the negative, but we mustn’t let it define us. We need to walk towards our desires regardless, and as we move forward we may make mistakes and meet obstacles on the way, but it’s the way that we handle that failure that will move us ever forward. So what of failure, can failure help us succeed? To begin with we need to understand what failure really is. It’s interesting how we measure our own or other people’s achievements. We use bank balances, property size, lifestyle, power and evidences of abundance as a measure of success or failure, but we don’t really understand the difference between them. Success and failure are not measures of have or have not, they cannot be judged by the size or the amount of our possessions, they are not destinations that we can look at and pass judgement on. In Napoleon Hill’s book the Science of Getting Rich, he writes about R.U. Darby and the “Dig and Grow Rich” story, Hill shares with us the story of Darby’s uncle who in the last century, was caught by ‘gold fever’ and went West to dig for gold. “He staked a claim and went to work with a pick and shovel. The going was hard, but his lust for gold was definite. After weeks of labor he was rewarded by the discovery of the shining ore. He needed machinery to bring the ore to the surface. Quietly he covered up the mine, retraced his footsteps to his home in Williamsburg, Maryland, told his relatives and a few neighbours of the ‘strike’ They got together money for the needed machinery and had it
shipped. The uncle and Darby went back to work in the mine. The first car of ore was mined, and shipped to a smelter. The returns proved they had one of the richest mines in Colorado! A few more cars of that ore would clear the debts. Then would come the big killing in profits. Down went the drills! Up went the hopes of the Darby’s! Then something happened! The vein of gold disappeared! They had come to the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold was no longer there! They drilled on, desperately trying to pick up the vein again, all to no avail. Finally, they decided to quit. They sold the machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars, and took the train back home. Some ‘junk’ men are dumb, but not this one! He called in a mining engineer to look at the mine and do a little calculating. The engineer advised that the project had failed, because the owners were not familiar with ‘fault lines.’ His calculations showed that the vein would be found just three feet from where the Darby’s had stopped drilling! That is exactly where it was found! The junk man took millions of dollars in ore from the mine, because he knew enough to seek expert counsel before giving up.” So is this failure? As a chapter of Darby’s life, this project is a failure, as the Darby’s quit and gave up on their dreams, only to find that they were only three feet from realising them. But in the contents of Darby’s life it is not failure. You see Darby took the lesson of success through persistence that he had so harshly learned in his short mining career and applied it to everything he did. As a result Darby became one of a small group of fewer than fifty men who, at that time, sold over a million dollars in life insurance annually. 80
So what is failure? Absolute failure is the habit of quitting, while failing with renewed determination to achieve, is a stepping-stone to success. Throughout history, in the world of commerce and science, we see this pattern of failure, determination, persistence and success. How many millionaires have a bankruptcy against their name? How many experiments by the likes of Edison and Bell failed, before they reached the conclusion they had been seeking? It is with passion and faith that we will have the power of persistence. It is with belief that the Law of Attraction will be invoked and our journey of success will be realized. Whether you understand the Law of Attraction or not, you must get out of the habit of thinking in your reality (unless your reality is where you want to be). To make changes to your circumstances you must intend to, you must visualize your dreams and desires and move towards them with passion and faith. To Achieve you must first Conceive and then Believe.
Law of Attraction Training Can Law of Attraction training courses help you? The film The Secret has been a good introduction to the Law of Attraction, but for many, seeing the film has been a backward step to utilizing the laws of attraction. The film is a first class introduction to these principles, not a Law of Attraction training manual. And while the visualization exercises covered in The Secret are valuable, we need to look far deeper into our emotions and feelings before we can fully utilise these laws. The Secret has done a fantastic job of communicated the existence of the secret Law of Attraction, but it does not equip us with the right tools to fully understand and take advantage these laws. In the Master Key System, Charles Haanel wrote; “If either of us were building a home for ourselves, how careful we would be in regard to the plans; how we should study every detail; how we should watch the material and select only the best of everything; and yet how careless we are when it comes to building our Mental Home, which is infinitely more important than any physical home.” Our thoughts are the foundation of our reality, and all to often, our thinking is out of control. We do not select and concentrate our thoughts; they are like a jumble of ideas popping in and out of existence. Have you ever bought a self-improvement book or programme that hasn’t worked? If you are like most of us, you have. So why is it that a personal development programme will work for some people but won’t work for others? 82
Is it that Anthony Robbins doesn’t know what he’s talking about or Zig Ziglar is full of hyped up baloney, or is it down to the student? Many of us live in reaction to our environment, considering ourselves to be victims or believing that we were dealt a bad hand. Or worse, we simply do not believe we deserve the absolute best that life has to offer. As a result, we go through life in victim mode, perhaps buying libraries of self-help books, hoping things will change. For these people even the most effective self-help material will be totally ineffective. Is your desire of success greater than your fear of failure? It is perfectly ok to be aware of the negative, but we must never dwell on it. It is our subconscious, negatives self script, our negative emotion, low self esteem or our mental blocks that render any self help material completely ineffective. It is only when these inner feelings are addressed and the foundation laid that great people can develop. As Charles Haanel puts it; “If we have thrown any kind of negative thought on the scrap pile, have refused to have anything to do with it, have refused to associate with it or become identified with it in any way, what then is the result? Our mental material is now of the best kind, we have no fear and no anxiety concerning the future.” You need to learn how to eliminate your mental blocks, to help you to utilise the Law of Attraction in full, enabling you to reach your full potential faster than you thought possible. If you learn how to use the Law of Vibration and your vibrational resonance you will attract anything and everything you wish. It may seem abstract at the moment, but this is absolutely what 83
determines your experience of reality. So, to the extent that you can modify what you are vibrating, creating the feeling of having your desires, that you will create your reality around that experience. Law of Attraction training is the only way to fully utilise these latent powers within you. But however you gain the skills needed to control your subconscious thought, practise is the key. There is plenty of free information available to people who do not have the financial support to invest money into a programme, but investment of time and effort is paramount. Mental fitness can cost you as little or as much as you want, just as physical fitness. To be physically fit we must take exercise, which cost nothing, yet the health and fitness industry is worth billions, why? Speed! We need speed, fast results, our desired reality, minimum time and great results. Your fitness instructor gives you motivation, mentorship and high self-esteem, which gives you results! Could we get the same results doing push-ups, riding or walking to work or maybe just running to the gym and back instead of using it? Of course we could. But we are social creatures, we desire motivating, pushing, supporting and mentoring. So how much will Law of Attraction training cost? As little or as much as you desire. Don’t disregard free information, the internet is full of useful, public domain material.

Waiting on You... This is the way this Law works. It puts you in line with the things you desire, so that you can Grasp these things as they come along for you. The question is... Do You Trust it? So, Can You Master The Law of Attraction? As Henry Ford put it.... “Whether You Think You Can or Can't, Either Way You Are Right" So How Do You Unlock This Power? At least ninety per cent of our mental life is subconscious, so if You fail to make use of this mental power, you will live within very narrow limits. Your subconscious can and will solve any problem for you, if you know how to direct it, and the subconscious processes are always at work. The question is, will you have a vision of the destination to be reached and the dangers to be avoided, or will you simply drift? Attention or concentration is probably the most-important essential in the development of mind, thought and Applying the Law of Attraction. The possibilities of concentration, when directed properly, seem unbelievable, to those not possessing these skills. And the development of this power is what sets every successful man or woman, apart. To try to demonstrate this power, think of a magnifying glass on a hot sunny day, if the glass is moved about, there is no apparent effect, but hold the glass perfectly still and focus the rays of sun on one spot and you will notice the effect immediately. 86
This is the same for the power of thought, scatter your thoughts from one subject to another, and no result is noticed, but focus your thought on any single purpose for any length of time and all thing become possible. This may sound simplistic, a simple solution to a complex situation. Possibly, but just give it a go; it’s not as easy as it sounds! Choose any single object and concentrate your attention on it for just ten minutes. You cannot do it! Your mind will wander off a dozen or so times and you will have to bring it back to the srcinal purpose, and each time the effect will have been lost and at the end of the ten minutes nothing will have been gained, because you have not been able to hold your thought steadily. It is, however, through instruction and practise that you will finally be able to overcome obstacles and be able to control your mental moods, your attitude, your consciousness and acquire this wonderful power.
