The law of attraction is the new buzz and everyone wants to get in on the game; sell you a package, coach you, show you how it’s done. It is going to make major changes in your life; we are going to teach you all you need to know to turn your life around.

The law of attraction is not a magic pill

This situation reminds me of one of Oprah Winfrey’s television constituents who declared “I intend to stop all of my medication now. Thank you for sharing The Secret with us.” The Secret is a film produced by Rhona Byrne about the law of attraction.

Far too many people believe that the law of attraction is some sort of magic pill. They think that all they have to do is listen to so-called gurus – gurus only exist in people’s minds; they do not have exclusive access to any truth – and self-styled mentors, and they would absorb it all by osmosis. This is not the case.

Change in Evolutionary Consciousness

There has been a sea change in the evolutionary consciousness of humans, on an energetic level which has completely reversed our decline. I don’t know what the hell it all means but it is a change for the better; for all of us. And it is precisely because of this new openness that so many teachers have come forward and are becoming known. That is why the film “The Secret” struck such a chord.

Many are now questioning what was once the norm; it is why so many people seem to be radically changing their lives; they want more. Humans are seeking their purpose in life. It is the reason for the explosion – literally and figuratively – of religious fundamentalism and the ratcheting up of incredible violence again women in every sphere of life. It is happening across the planet. Not everyone understands what is happening and what people don’t understand, they fear.

What is the Law of Attraction

I have told you what the law of attraction is not. So what is it? The law of attraction is the universal law of vibration which says “you get what you vibrate“. You call to you that which matches the way you feel. Your thoughts create feelings, your feelings are vibrations, your vibrations are transmitted to the universe, source, ether, by your subconscious mind, and it brings you the matching vibration via a person or an event.

It is like dialling a familiar number on the telephone. In this case though, someone will always pick up but you will never know who it is until they answer.

We have been using this universal law of vibration all of our lives. Have you ever decided that you wanted something desperately, and gotten it. Or a woman is looking for that perfect pair of shoes at a particular price and walks into a particular store and there they are, waiting for her. That is the law of vibration at work. What you think about, you create.

The Law of Attraction is An Equal Opportunity Law


The law of vibration is an equal opportunity law. It is very democratic and completely impartial. When you feel crappy, you think depressing thoughts which call even more of them. You nurse this negativity and feel worse.
While in this frame of mind, you decide to go shopping. You begin to have disagreeable encounters with people who suddenly seem to be omnipresent. They match your negative attitude and thoughts. Simple

The same applies when you are feeling good. You wake up bright and look forward to your day. You plan, strategise and execute. Everything is flowing your way. You are clear and focussed and get the job done and more. The ease with which everything falls into place thrills you. You are excited, energised, and alive. You can handle anything because you feel good, and therefore when challenges occur, you would get all the assistance you require because you are open.

The Ether or Cosmic Mind or Source

Where does the “stuff” come from? The ether of course. Remember, everything is energy. Nothing ever disappears, it is only transformed into something else. The universe or cosmic mind is our storehouse. You can have anything that you desire; all you ever have to do is ask and you will receive it. There is no mystery.

What You Need to Know about the Law of Attraction and Vibration

The principle of the law of attraction is grossly misunderstood. Most so-called coaches, teachers, and self-styled mentors ask you to pay to “learn” the law of attraction but it is something you already know. You just don’t know that you know it. You have been vibrating and attracting all of your lives!

What they should be doing is illustrating to you “how” you use the law of vibration in your daily lives. It would explain your difficulties and your successes. No kidding. Then provide you with techniques to assist you in changing your mindset. However, only you can do this work; there is no miracle.

How Vibrations Work

Whether you accept it or not, every event, circumstance, and encounter in your life, successful or not, is created by you. Because your conscious and subconscious thoughts – programmed, habitual thinking – create positive and negative emotions. These emotions emit a matching signal which calls a corresponding vibration from the ether, and hey presto your result is in your face.

There are many non-invasive, self-improvement techniques out there. Find one which works for you and turn your life around in the problem areas. Start with the immediate problem. It has taken me ten long months of heartache and a lot of tears to get rid of my emotional garbage but I wouldn’t change it for the world. If you think it’s too hard though, that’s not a problem. Do nothing.

    Wonderful article and thank you for introducing us to Catherine and her site.

    I’ve always believed in the law of attraction … the trick, it seems to me, is having faith in it, especially when time are tough and things don’t seem to be going so well. But if we take a look at what we generate … what vibrations we send out … it all becomes clear. Each action, though, emotion is like a pebble in the pond …

    Hope you are having a great day!

    @Small Footprints: Hi; how are you? You’re welcome, Catherine’s energy is amazing isn’t it? I agree, the LOA can be tough at times, especially when things aren’t going well. One tip that really resonated with me was to get out of the way more. For example, when you order something in a restaurant, you order and just KNOW that the meal will arrive. You don’t keep going to the chef, checking the waitress, stirring the sauce yourself or worry that it won’t come. The LOA is supposed to be like that too – place your order, relax and wait 🙂
