Law of Attraction is the current name for an idea around creating our reality. Where did it all begin? Where did it come from and how did it come to be known as that? The last few years I've been immersing myself into learning what I can about Law of Attraction and how it really works. I joined a private club, The Global Information Network, to learn the secrets of Law of Attraction and how to manifest as it was intended. In the next few articles, I'll share my experiences and my current understanding of Law of Attraction. Does it work? Is it a scam? The secrets as I know it will be revealed.
Before I share that, it is important to give a little history about where and how Law of Attraction came to be.
To my surprise, the concept of creating are own reality or getting what we think about has been around for quite a long time. One of the earliest recordings dates back to Ancient Egypt from the Emerald Tablets of Thoth "as above so below" gives a glimpse to the secrets that the tablets possessed.
Other clues to this secret were encrypted in religious and spiritual texts such as the Bible "And I say to you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you" Luke 11:9
Many books were written over the years. Some of the more common ones recently were The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale, Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill, and As A Man Thinketh by James Allen. These and many others share the same message of Law of Attraction, although they may be called something different. Before Law of Attraction, the the concept was known as positive thinking. Napolean Hill refers to it as the hypnotic rhythm.
How did it come to be known as the Law of Attraction? Rhonda Byrne made the concept mainstream with The Secret. It was Jerry and Esther Hicks, along with Abraham, that really began to make the concept now known as Law of Attraction through their books and seminars.
