The real problem with the Law of Attraction

The real problem with the Law of Attraction is that people explain it as "wish for it and it will happen." It’s like once you start wishing for for what you want, you no longer have to try to get it. Steve Pavlina has a great explanation for why the Law of Attraction doesn’t work that way:

A common manifestation exercise is to try to manifest a blue
feather somewhere in your reality. You hold the intention to see a blue
feather sometime in the next 24 hours. What’s the most direct solution
to that intention? Is it to wait patiently and let the universe bring
it to you somehow? Why not simply do a Google image search? You’ll find
your blue feather within seconds. Problem solved. Next.

If you really want something, and you are trying to use the Law of Attraction to get it, you have to do your best to get it. Think positive, know you’re going to get it and work at it!

If you want to win the lottery, you have to buy a lottery ticket.

  1. Everyone always wants something for nothing, the law of attraction is more like being mindful of the force than wishing for something.
    Mind having said that, I’ve heard a few stories about the Jedi mind trick working…

  2. Hmm, as much as a fan of Steve Pavlina that I am, I don’t particularly like that article, in reference to the law of attraction. The law of attraction is not magic, but nor should it be simplified into having a ‘positive state of mind’ and otherwise acting directly upon your problems.
