Law Of Attraction - Fact or Fiction?

Updated on January 24, 2013

The greatest source of inspiration

We all need some kind of inspiration to walk the arduous path of life. In absence of motivation, the journey can be horrendous enough while wading through difficult waters, staggering across the sandy deserts in blistering heat, climbing steep mountains or finding way out of the woods. (that's how life situations appear to be). Everyone needs a driving force in life to move forward and without that magical force, it becomes nearly impossible to accomplish goals. For most people in today’s world (and rightly so), money and success are two great sources of inspiration but for some, ‘love’ still reigns as the most powerful motivational factor. People falling in the latter category are generally the ones who don’t play by the rules and simply follow their instincts. They are unconventional and don’t seem to understand the norms of the dogmatic and (supposedly) orderly society. All I know is that they can work miracles if they have love in their lives but the down side is that they tend to lead aimless and dissatisfied lives till the time their craving for love is not satiated. For such people, it’s just like living a life without breathing in air. As unrealistic as it sounds, such personality types have still not become extinct amidst gross materialism and barbarism of the present world. There is yet another group which has emerged on the horizon recently; it consists of people who find themselves inspired by ‘Law of attraction’. They believe that they can attract love, money, success, happiness or for that matter even weight loss by following 'law of attraction' techniques in their daily lives. Amazing! We really do live in a 'make believe' world.

Law of Attraction

It’s very easy to find people, who, apparently seem embroiled in their routine work but if you take a closer look, you’ll know that such people, despite being physically present in their small office cubicle allow themselves the luxury of dreaming with their eyes wide open. Such people probably do their job for the heck of it and don’t feel motivated enough, either to excel at what they’re doing or to quit the monotonous and life sucking job for something that they desperately want to. I discovered one such person in my office some time back and he surprised me with his line of thought in the course of a casual conversation during lunch hour.

“I never give up hope. I believe in law of attraction and I’m sure I’m going to find love very soon. Things are going to change…I’m pretty sure.” He said.

This forty two year old man, who already had three broken relationships to his credit, seemed to be so sure about meeting his Ms. Right that I didn’t feel like questioning his belief. I couldn’t muster courage to tell him that he wouldn’t find his love sitting in his 10/10 cubicle as for that, he needed to go out and explore opportunities. However, it was obvious that with his existing state of mind he was at least able to take a positive step forward with each passing moment; sometimes that’s all what a person needs….something to hold on to, for navigating to the shore.

As we all know, the ‘law of attraction’ is the latest fancy theory propagated by some pioneers in the field of quantum physics and spiritual science. I am still not able to gauge how far this theory holds ground but what I know for sure is that it has become a million dollar business for a few experts who have been able to spin an incredible theory which, according to them, is backed by scientific explanation as well. I guess, it works both for the proponents and the general public. You wanna know how? Well, the advocates of this theory rose to be the stalwarts of a money-churning industry and we (the gullible people) ended up believing in something which is supposedly substantiated with scientific evidence. We tend to believe more in scientific proofs and, fortunately, ‘law of attraction’ offered science and spirituality in one single package. What else could be easier for us to assimilate! The interesting part is that no one cares to ascertain the validity of this newly found ‘law’ in the light of complex situations encountered in daily life.

Law of attraction vs. planetary influence

I watched the ‘Secret of Success’ DVD over and over again. This one and a half hour video is an amazing piece of technical excellence. I have to say that the script and the visuals are worthy of praise. It’s definitely a treat to watch. They say that the most powerful element governing the events occurring in our daily lives is nothing but our own ‘thought’. They make it look as if everything that happens around us is a result of our thoughts. It seems they have completely eliminated the pertinence of ‘destiny’ and ‘planetary influence’ from our lives. I have always believed in the influence of planets and the star constellation on humans. It’s an established fact that the earth is only a small part of the enormous solar system and there are many planets which have been proven to have a substantial effect on our planet depending on their size and distance from the earth. If our earth cannot escape the influence, how can we? The video (secret of success) shows how we can attract positivity in our lives merely by channelizing our thoughts and focusing on good things but I won’t hesitate in saying that, more often than not, planets have the power over our mood swings also. The right star constellation triggers unexplained happiness and peace whereas the malefic arrangement of stars in our natal chart can cause depression without cause. So to say that we are the masters of our own thoughts would be somewhat far-fetched.

Law of attraction or Power of Prayers ?

The entire theory is based on staying positive which is good. At least it makes people believe that there is hope. Anything that gives an individual some kind of strength to start each day with renewed hope, vigor and expectation is acceptable as per the human standards. I watched many uploaded videos on the internet where people from different walks of life shared their experiences after incorporating the law of attraction in their daily lives. All those people had one thing in common; they said that they prayed everyday for getting what they wanted and hoped that results would be in their best interest. Here I was a little confused. So was it the law of attraction or the power of prayers which helped them achieve their objectives? Should the credit be given to their belief in ‘law of attraction’ or the ‘angelic power’ which granted them their wishes? Perhaps it’s both. When we try to evolve spiritually the first thing that we do is to channelize our energies and attune ourselves to the higher power in order to resonate with the energy of our creator. This helps to create a channel / link with the creator and it is believed that after having established the said nexus, it becomes easier to hear the inner voice or the voice of the spirit. Once this is done the negativity in our system is washed off gradually and positive energy fills our body and mind. We find peace with ourselves and as the outer environment merely reflects our inner self, we find it easier to deal with the outer world and once this synchronization is done, nothing seems difficult to achieve. Isn’t this what we already know? So what’s new about ‘law of attraction’? I would just call it a reminder, of the power which is buried inside us and, of the need for using that power for the greater good. Well, I guess we all love to have old wine in a new bottle and that’s why we attract in our lives, a simple concept of spirituality wrapped in an expensive package.

      A very exciting hub where the answers will continue to intrigue us for the rest of our lives.As we search for the answers we will find answers.I think we have to keep adding our new knowledge and go from there.Unfortunately most people get bored and will give up and try something else.Look at all the diet fads.When exercise and eating right is the key.As you say an old wine in a new bottle.You have done a wonderful job explaining what is missing.I think the biggest problem I had with the movie The Secret was the time factor.Everything you do takes time.It is not instant and it may take years.But when the time is right it will work out for the best.So I think we have to encorporate God,planets,belief,prayer,and everything else that makes us feel good.Our outcome is bound to turn out better than we started and maybe well beyond all our wildest dreams and imagination.Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Sonia! I agree that LOA helps a person to change his / her attitude for the better. After all its positive thinking that helps an individual to withstand 'storms' in life. However, it will not give concrete results if not combined with sincere efforts to achieve ones goals. They managed to sell a simple (already known)fact to people simply because it was wrapped in a fancy package. Thank you for your kind comments.

      Hey Anjali, i am so very impressed by your hubs including this one. You are gifted for sure!

      I have heard about many success stories of the laws of attraction.A friend of mine suggested me to try it out.Earlier,I found it to be funny and unreal but tried it out of fun.One thing that has resulted is that I am positive most of the time! However,I am still waiting for some concrete positive results.

      Hi, Anja, thanks for your answer. In the beginning of my journey with the LoA I thought the same as you, if it were so easy, why are there still people around who don't get what they want?

      But it is not, even not if you know how it works. Since it is extremely hard to focus on what you want while you live what is. And since what is, being right in your face and on your eye-level, is really always influencing your emitted signal (did you know that our body is really a big crystal, a very good transmitter of signals?), it needs a tremedous amount of focus and discipline to stay on the frequecy of what you want instead of what you have. And therein lies the rub.

      This has nothing to do with positive thinking as a tool, it is just that you have to BE what you want, in order to create it. If you want to utilze the law, you have to be able to get so into the feeling place of what you want that you have it without the physical evidence. And then it will come.

    • anjalichugh profile image

      anjalichugh 7 years ago from New York

      Hi Dorothee! What you're trying to say sounds more like 'positive thinking' and 'right attitude'. Well, we all know that with a positive attitude, the negative effect, resulting from the most stifling life situations, gets mitigated to a large extent. It does not, however, mean that we can attract whatever we want only by believing that we're going to get it. You can understand how easy it would've been for everyone to get what one desired, if the LOA actually worked. Thats why I said LOA seems to be a little far fetched. Nonetheless, it helps keeping afloat when confronted with an uneasy thought of getting drowned. :) Thx very much for making this hub more interesting.

    • Dorothee-Gy profile image

      Dorothee-Gy 7 years ago from near Frankfurt/M., Germany

      Very interesting hub. The great thing about Law of Attraction is that we don't have to discuss if it is valid or not, because we can just observe what happens when we are in certain life situations. After all, if it really is a Law, then it is not voluntarily, we cannot switch it on or off, it either is or is not in place.

      So it should produce the same or at least reproducable effects every time. The main problem with it is that we most of the time don't recognize how it works, and since we have this "blind spot", we think we cannot change the course of an event.

      The clue to the utilization of the Law of Attraction (and this is what you and most people are talking about) is to react to life situations in an deliberate manner, not in an automated one. If we react as we always did, we get what we always got and nothing can change.

      But when we are in a stressful situation and we manage to remember Law of Attraction, then we can deliberately decide to break the cycle we're in and to change our attitude towards the situation. And then we only have to sit back and watch what happens.

      Let's say, we have too much to do, and we're all freaked out about it. The normal thing to do is to freak out even more, complain about it, try to do more than is possible, exhaust ourselves completely and get more and more into this state where we feel completely overwhelmed.

      In an attempt to utilize Law of Attraction to change the situation, we would try break this cycle by allowing ourselves to relax, by soothing ourselves that everything will work out just fine and that there is absolutely no reason to freak out about it. We would realize that no matter how fast we run, we cannot reach the finish line with everything we have on our desk, so we would take the time to breathe deeply and decide which task is the more important and then do only one thing at a time. We would try to get to a feeling place of being as relaxed and easygoing as possible, because we would know that the more relaxed we feel, the better our situation becomes.

      And then we can just sit back and watch what happens. And if there is this Law in place (which I have seen in action often enough in order to know that it is there), then our situation will change to the better, sometimes in the most astonishing way.

      So, we don't really have to speculate, because its not something we only can prove to ourselves in a very elaborate way, we can make the test every now and then and find it out for ourselves, easily.

      That's the most wonderful thing about it, we don't have to convince anyone about it, it either is or is not, and if it is, everyone can find out for themselves. And all we have to do is to share.

      Love to you and thanks for the thoughts...

      Lamme: There seems to be no doubt about the power of 'thought' but the question is whether it is so powerful that it can get us whatever we want. The answer is obviously 'No' as you said. Such LOA theories sound nice and fancy when discussed over a glass of wine. :) Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful thoughts..

    • Lamme profile image

      Lamme 7 years ago

      Very interesting hub. I really had to sit back and think about this. I do believe that our attitude or beliefs influence what we can achieve. If we think we're going to fail ... that's probably going to come true. Because we have already formulated the opinion in our mind, we manifest it by acting the part. Not doing what needs to be done, or whatever it is that brings about that failure. If we tell ourselves we're going to succeed ... the converse happens. We will keep working and striving until we reach whatever it is we're after. However, I don't think that means we can have whatever we throw out to the universe. Sometimes the answer is NO.

    • anjalichugh profile image

      anjalichugh 8 years ago from New York


      Yes, thought is very powerful in itself but the question is ...powerful to what extent? Can it bring about 'unexpected' and 'unthinkable' results? That was the baseline of this hub. Thx so much for your kind comments. Your presence is always appreciated.

      Very thought provoking Hub - interesting too.

      I personally think that "belief" is a powerful tool. The mind-set is changed positively and The law of attraction operates on belief as well.

      Anjali, a fellow New Yorker!

      This is a great hub.

      The LOA / Secret works in that, all humans have the same consciousness. so yes, we attract/repel the same things. It is more genetic than kinetic, I think. Like lobster? Me too! Hate gum on my shoe, me too! Thus, By any measure humans connect. The notion of excluding or including people because of hyper positron only is absurd. All humans need each other and desire to be apart of one another.

      True, the spin-doctors have been busy and now a shoot off concept has emerged in the area of mind control, becoming what you think. But I recently told a friend of mine, the mind is a tool, a machine designed to enable us to do & be far beyond the limits of consciousness.

      Hi Anjali,

      Yes, I believe that the law of attraction really works but often not by just siting back and waiting for things to happen but by taking action too. I loved the video The Secret but I think it should have leaned heavier on taking action. For example, the one man in the video mentioned how he just kept getting checks in the mail after applying the secret but failed to mention the work involved to set this process in motion. Unfortunately I think this could be a little misleading. Thumbs up for this thought provoking hub!

      Talk to you later. :)

      Hi Tatjana: Good to see you. I really value your insight. I don't feel comfortable contradicting you in any ways just because each one of us is at a different place in life mainly due to our past and present (cumulative)life experiences apart from having different kind of psychic impressions. So if I try proving that I'm right, I would definitely be a fool of the first order. We all discover truth in different ways and at different times so the best way is to respect everyone's truth. Thx so much for sharing your knowledge with all of us.

      Tatjana-Mihaela 8 years ago from Zadar, CROATIA

      Thank you for this very interesting Hub Anjali...I also spent a lot of time analysing the law of att. as well as I compaire it to other methods of spiritual development.

      According to my experience, Law of Attraction works perfectly. Due to medidations I practice, I am for years able to attract in my life whatever I want to - but...the problem is to determine the difference between what I really want and what I say that I want (and actually do not need or cannot cope with, or think that I do not deserve, or have not enough energy for).

      According to Law of Attraction I always get the both, but regurarly refuse what I do not need and cannot cope with, think that I do not deserve or have not enough energy for.

      Planets certainly do influence us, everyone of us, but ups and downs in energy are normal part of human life...we are parts of the nature and nobody cannot be "high" all the time. But I also learned that negative emotions, if they are not prevalent, cannot stop us to achive what we really want, on the contrary.

      Astrology is very relative: I knew one girl who was born on the same year,day and same hour and minutes as me (she even had the family name similar to mine - Pribic/Pribicevic) - she died in accident when she was 18...I am 43 and very alive, and our natal charts were - completely the well as transits of planets influenced are on the same way. When she had accident, I was ill (flu) and I recovered from my illness after 1 week, she died immediately. So I learned when I was 18, that astrology is not so important... altough I use it...and find it very interesting.

      Law of attraction certainly does not bring many new things to some of us, but to the others - yes it does. Ability to apply it to achieve all the best in life -whatever somebody thinks the best is - depends of:

      - ability and willingness to heal phychological traumas (if they are not healed, no positivity cannot be permanently applied)

      -enough of vital energy (very important!), when people do not have vital energy, there is no success in anything

      -honesty to oneself

      -a lot of patience - and time...

      Hugs and love

      the law of attraction has been around for thousands of years.the teachings are located in every holy book on the face of the earth.ask and you shall receive,believe have faith and so on the secret and all that is nothing more than specific verses from the bible or koran or torrah or bhudda the only thing different is the use of the word universe instead of god because the universe is god.

      Hi Pam: I can't express how happy I'm to see you here after such a long time. Please keep coming back. I almost felt a sort of vacuum without you.

      You simply gave voice to my thoughts. In fact you made those thoughts more explicit than I could've ever done. These LOA videos do look like motivational seminars. They (sort of) help in making a slight shift in our pre-programmed thoughts so as to help us stay motivated and full of hope. I guess in certain ways that contributes to our mental health but beyond that I doubt if it does the kind magic which people talk about. As I always's my opinion and that doesn't have to be right. Thanks so much Pam for your loving and kind words.

      Money Glitch: Well, I'm glad it has helped you. Often times it's not the actual situations but our reaction towards them which makes things worse. That applies to traffic example in the video. If you stay calm and let it go then your reflexes work better as compared to a situation when you get overwhelmed and feel acutely stressed. But whatever said and done, as I mentioned in hub, if it helps a person to think positive, it's not a bad deal. Thx very much for sharing your experience here.

      Hi Ankjali; Very thought provoking hub. The LOA series changed me and my family's lives for the better. It helped us to realize that some things you can control by simply changing your thoughts.

      Before LOA; it was prayer with doubt, now it is prayer with and all knowing that "all is well." :) My first great experience was when I changed my mind about traffic and being late (like in the movie). It does work! Like the quote, "If you believe, you can achieve, through action." Thanks for sharing! :)

      It seems though that if a person were to be able to attract whatever was desired through the power of positive thinking alone, then the limits of desire would soon become obvious. Eventually all that would be left would be the original hunger with no object to ever really satisfy it. Either that, or maybe the person would quit desiring things at all and just settle down and appreciate whatever comes. At some point, I think spiritual maturity sets in and getting your own way or a new car or spouse or whatever is not so important. The most spiritual people I have ever met have been filled with both doubt and compassion. It was their own doubt and suffering that developed their deep kindness and dedication.

      These LOA materials always remind me of motivational seminars that corporations send you to when you work for them. I believe there is more to life than wanting this or that. I always enjoy reading your thoughts though Anjali. :)

      I know you have some of these reservations too.

      I agree with it to the extent that it helps us (like I said in my hub) in staying positive, calming down the mind and hearing the inner voice. Its a sort of glamorous form of age old concepts of spirituality. Whatever it is, we have to agree that it helps elevating the human spirit. Thx so much all of you for reading this hub and sharing your valuable opinion. :)

      Anjali: I believe in the Law of Attraction in the sense that it raises our vibrations and focus to attract well being into our lives; it allows us to connect to the voice of Spirit. If we focus on let's say drama everyday, we attract more of the same. However, like your friend in the office, just having the faith he will meet the right woman but staying inside his cubicle at all hours is not utilizing what he believes in proactively. The LOA or Life itself sometimes requires movement for it to be able to create.

      Thought provoking hub!
