As far as general scientists are concerned, The Law of Attraction is deemed ‘impossible.’ I use the term ‘general scientists,’ as opposed to the great scientific minds of today, Theoretical Physicists like Dr. Michio Kaku. Now frankly, I have no idea what his feelings are on the Law of Attraction, but I’m quite sure he doesn’t deny it out of hand. It’s accepted that the Universe and everything in it, all the suns, planets, solar systems, the Earth, humans, flora and fauna are all energy. As Herman von Helmholtz established, all forms of energy are equivalent. One form of energy may disappear, but another form will appear to take its place. So therefore energy continues unabated and undiminished.
If you and I are made of the same energy as the Universe, and like attracts like, then the Law of Attraction must be steeped in Truth. How do scientists explain such phenomena as Astral Projection? How do they view the experiments of the Russians and the CIA in particular, where not too long ago, an Army Ranger was recruited to carry out mind experiments where he actually visited places like Russia and entered rocket silos, all with his mind. After a year, he had to be pulled out of the programme, because the strain on his mind was such that he risked serious mental illness if he’d been allowed to continue.
The truth is, scientists don’t. They can’t. There is no cogent explanation, something that follows a Reason One, Reason Two, Reason Three system. But believe in the Law of Attraction? Good Lord, no. Load of rubbish! And yet, the whole concept is so basically simple. Different emotions emit different frequencies. For instance, have you ever known a wealthy person who was a pessimist? Oh, there have been unhappy millionaires. The first Astor was one. I don’t think he was a downright unpleasant man; just not very happy. But not being cheerful doesn’t cause his mind to be plagued by doubts as to his ability to make money. Even he, unhappy though he may have been, wouldn’t have allowed any thought of failure cross his mind.
Being unhappy and being pessimistic are not one and the same. When I served my apprenticeship, I became very friendly with a lad who seemed he had the Midas touch. We were both seventeen or eighteen at the time, and he decided he wanted to trade in second hand cars. Obviously, this was way before I’d heard of the Law of Attraction, Napoleon Hill or Wallace Wattles. But I studied him. Where I’d have been too nervous to enter into an enterprise, he knew no fear. Failure never crossed his mind. Whether he was convinced of success, I don’t know, but he simply carried on with his business and became quite successful.
I went away for two years abroad, and when I returned he’d opened a very smart car dealership in a nearby town. We lost touch, so what happened to him, I don’t know, but he was a classic example of never allowing fear of failure to cross his mind. Like the old story about the man who succeeded mightily in business and when someone asked him how he’d managed it, he replied; “Well, no-one ever told me I couldn’t.” I do think it’s important to be grateful for everything you have now and then make your affirmation about wanting wealth. You make up your mind how much you want, then simply visualize. The when and the how are dictated by the Universe.
