Law of Attraction

I deleted two posts today.  Why?

I finished listening to The Attractor Factor by Joe Vitale and I’m listening to The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.  While I keep thinking The Secret is kind of hoakey, I buy into it.  What it claims fits not only my life experience but what I’ve noticed in others.  Basically the law of attraction says that you attract what you think about.  So if you think positive thoughts, you’ll attract postive things.  If you think about money all the time, you’ll attract money.  If you think about how you don’t have enough money, you’ll never have enough money.  It sounds hoakey but it works.  Think about it.

I’ll give you two examples.  One, the woman that cleans our house always has some tragedy going on.  Her granddaughter got bit by a dog, one of her kids is going through bankruptsy, her son’s dog got stolen, … I’ve known her for several years now and everytime I talk to her something terrible has just happened to her.  I think her focus on the negative brings her negative experiences, as terrible as that sounds.

On the flip side, in college I always knew I’d have enough money.  Granted, that wasn’t such a big deal as Mom and Dad paid for tuition and board but the money I earned paid for clothes, eating out, entertainment, furniture, gas, etc.  I always knew I had enough and I did. I remember one time getting an unexpected $200 bill and in panic sat down to rebalance my checkbook just in case.  And what do you know?  I’d made a $200 mistake the week before.  I always had enough because I always believed I had enough.  Granted, I caused that to happen – I always had at least one job if not two or three and they all paid well.

While the books make the Law of Attraction sound like some kind of voodoo (The Secret more so than the Attractor Factor), I think they are on to something.  So I’m thinking postive thoughts: I have a great family, a good job, plenty of money, lots of interesting activities to keep me busy, lots of good books to read, …

  1. You’ve got a great attitude, Stormy, and you are absolutely right. We get what we think about. You did a great job of nailing one of the biggest road blocks that people come across, and that is thinking about having something versus thinking about NOT having it.
    Either way you are thinking about that thing, but one system will create the thing that you are thinking about, and one system will keep it from coming into your life.
    Great post!

  2. The Law of Attraction – The Secret Unveil?

    How much do you know about the law of attraction?
    We all work with one infinite power.
    The Secret is the Law of Attraction.
    Whatever is going on in your mind is what you are attracting.
    We are like magnets – like attract like. You become AND attract w…

  3. I have to disagree.
    Every other teenage boy and I thought only about sex. And I for one didn’t “attract” any.
    Not that I’m bitter or anything.

  4. You thought about sex but you didn’t really believe you would get it. You also thought about how you weren’t going to get any or how the girls always went with other guys. You probably thought and believed about that more, so it happened! 😉

  5. I thought you and your readers might be interested in this…
    The Oprah broadcast of “The Secret” will be February 8th. Also, it will be followed by an International Law of
    Attraction Teleconference. If you want more info go to
    Also, the more posts that Oprah gets on her message boards about a particular topic, the more inclined she is to
    repeat the topic. So go to and find the message board for “The Secret” to let her know that you
    want more of the same!
    Spread the word!

  6. AMAZING! In case you haven’t heard yet… Oprah is doing a SECOND show
    about “The Secret” this Friday, February 16th. It is UNPRECEDENTED for
    Oprah to repeat a topic so quickly. But as we all know… Once the Law
    Attraction is set into motion… there ain’t no stopping it!
    As a follow-up to this Oprah encore show, there will also be two more
    International Law of Attraction Teleconferences. These Law of
    Teleconferences last week were a BIG hit, and attended by people from
    different continents and in 7 different time zones. The link to
    for this week’s teleconferences is They got pretty full last
    in the post-Oprah rush, so you might want to register BEFORE Friday to
    make sure you get a space.
    I think it’s safe to say that “The Secret” is out! Let’s all keep
    spreading the word and see what amazing things happen next!

  7. Hi Stormy,
    I enjoyed your post on the Law of Attraction! It’s really great that you are putting the word out. It is my (and my partner’s) intention to put the word out, too. We noticed that there was something missing. A lot of folks would get very excited about the principals of “The Secret” and the Law of Attraction, and then nothing in their lives would change, except for, perhaps, very momentarily and sporadically. It’s just like when you go to a motivational seminar, and you get all pumped up (for a few hours, or days, or weeks) and then your life goes back to the way it has always been.
    So what is the missing piece? Being that we are both hypnotherapists, we knew that it was programming. In order to best utilize the concepts and power of the law of attraction, one has to change one’s mind set – on a subconscious level. So we set out to make the best reprogramming cd that we could. This cd has all of the hypnotic bells and whistles we could think of besides fantastic music: dual-induction, subliminals, direct suggestion, indirect suggestion, affirmations, whole brain balancing. It has it all. Honestly, I have never been more proud of any achievement in my life than this cd, because I know it is changing lives. In a big way.
    The Law of Attraction is very real. I have seen it work in my life in mysterious and miraculous ways. I can see that you have, too. I have begun to expect miracles! I would like to invite you for a test run of our cd. Please go to our website and listen to the first track.
    Then, if you feel our cd might be of value, let’s talk about how we can work together to get this product out there! It needs to be out there! Can you tell that I am passionate about this?! 🙂
    I look forward to hearing from you! Just go the and click on the cover of the cd. Please feel free to read the website, as well. That is a labor of love and belief, as well.
