Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction has been used by people for millennia. There is no doubt to the benefits of positive thought, faithful belief, and motivated action. The roots of the Law of Attraction can be found in a range of ancient practices, and Eastern teachings. It was referred to in Buddhist writings and well as in Christianity. It was the Buddha who famously said, “Our thoughts make us what we are”.
The phrase “Law of Attraction” did not really come into play until the work of Madame Helena Blavatsky. She emphasized our ability to shape reality, and our power to move past our own limitations, believing that our thoughts define not only who owe are, but what we are capable of.
In 1906 William Walker Atkinson pursued this further by teaching that we need to focus on strengthening our own willpower, improve our focus, and that this will attract good things into our lives. In his lifetime the wrote over 100 books on the power of manifestation using some of the beliefs of ancient Hindi spiritual teachings.
In 1910 Wallace Wattles pursued this concept with the writing of his book “The Science of Getting Rich” which continues to be read to this day. One of his key messages was the belief that we have access to our own success. Each person can develop their own potential, even without being taught by experts or being born into a privileged position or set of circumstances.
In 1937 Napoleon Hill because famous after outlining his Law of Attraction techniques in his book “Think and Grow Rich” showing that we can overcome challenges using manifestation tools to create a happy fulfilling life. Other teachers like, Robert Collier, Charles Haanel, devoted much of their lives teaching and following these beliefs and making both themselves and others very wealthy and successful.
But this movement has gained more publicity, and power in our own time with the writing of Rhonda Byrne’s book “The Secret”.
