Why Oprah and the whole world are ecstatic over the law of attraction
Publication Date: [Tuesday, March 20, 2007]
At the start of the new millennium, visionaries and clairvoyants
predicted a major shift to happen within 10 years after 2000,
a movement so powerful that it would change the history of the
earth. This great big shift was interpreted by many as a drastic
shifting of the earth’s axis, an event which could prove
to be perilous and catastrophic.
True enough, a major change is happening right now around the
world, but thank God, it is has nothing to do with the earth’s
axis or anything catastrophic. Instead, the great shift is occurring
in the human mind, in the way people think and approach life in
general. This great upheaval was initiated by the sudden upsurge
in popularity of the universal law of attraction.
Thanks to the hype stirred by the enlightening blockbuster movie
The Secret (you’d better get a DVD copy because you won’t
see this movie in regular theaters!), the law of attraction is
finally gaining the public attention and importance it is due.
Its life-changing power has elicited the unprecedented enthusiasm
of media superstars like Oprah Winfrey and Larry King, modern-day
philosophers, psychologists, and proponents of new thought philosophy.
Truly, the law of attraction can significantly transform the world.
The law of attraction has been known and preached by the world’s
greatest minds and sages for thousands of years, including Plato,
Shakespeare, Newton, Hugo, Beethoven, Lincoln, Emerson, Edison,
Einstein, and Jesus Christ. And you have also already used it
in your own life because as a universal law, it works whether
you’re aware of it or not. All those wonderful, astounding,
and seemingly miraculous coincidences that have happened to you
which you could not explain or attribute to anything or anyone
have come about as a result of the powerful law of attraction.
People who discover it for the first time marvel at its simplicity
and wonder why it has not been taught to them earlier. Stated
very simply, the law of attraction says: You attract into your
life what you focus your mind and attention on. Your thoughts
create your experiences; what you hold in your mind becomes reality.
Like a magnet, you attract everything in your life by the power
of your thoughts because after all, thoughts are energy!
By understanding and knowing how to use the law of attraction,
you can create your dream life, and turn your impossible dreams
into reality. You can attract money, success, love, happiness,
prosperity, and virtually anything you want, including health!
In The Secret, Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith declares, "I have
seen many miracles take place in people’s lives. Financial
miracles, miracles of physical healing, mental healing, healing
of relationships." All because of the law of attraction.
How It Works
My October 10, 2004 column in The Philippine STAR was devoted
to the Law of Attraction. This explanation is part of what came
According to metaphysics writer Terryll Nemeth, "All minds
are connected through a part of mind called Universal Mind. When
we create a visualized thought form, which reaches out into universal
mind, other people are also forming similar thought forms, which
are compatible to ours. Through the magnetic principle of attraction
of the subconscious mind, these compatible desires and needs meet.
We are drawn into each other’s creations through compatible
desires and needs.
"First of all, a seed idea must be created by using the
aggressive action of the mind, creating a clear, complete, and
detailed thought form. With the continued use of undivided attention
and concentration, the clear and detailed thought form is then
given to the subconscious mind to nurture and develop.
"The transfer of the seed idea from the conscious to the
subconscious mind is completed when the conscious attention is
removed from it. Now, the seed idea can begin to grow within the
subconscious mind. We help the idea to blossom by combining it
with physical activity that is in alignment with our desired outcome.
"We then love our seed idea into maturity by giving it our
mental attention by seeing it growing through the influence of
every endeavor and experience in our daily lives. As the thought
form of our seed idea grows, it attracts to it other thoughts
and minds with compatible ideals."
