There has been a lot of misunderstanding about the law of attraction and how it works since the movie, The Secret, was released in 2006. The responses and reactions regarding its validity range from skepticism to downright anger at the myth some people believe “get rich quick gurus” are perpetrating. Many religious organizations call it heretical. Many hardcore scientists discount it because it does not meet their criteria for proof based on the scientific method.
My goal is not to criticize or judge those who are wary of the term, “law of attraction”, but to lessen their resistance by clarifying what it is, since it affects all of us in every area of our lives every day.
The truth is, the law of attraction is not something that someone made up in the last few years. It is not a “new age” fad. It is a Universal Law. It is the law of cause and effect. What you send out, you will get back. It’s like an echo. If you shout hello into a cave, goodbye is not the sound that will return to you. You will hear Hello. (It is, after all, a friendly Universe.)
It is not anti-religion. It is the Universal Law upon which all major religions were founded. What you sow, you will reap. It does not contradict science. It is the very foundation of science and medicine, as stated in Newton’s Third Law of Physics: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means that every action triggers a reaction, from the opposite direction, that equals it. Simply stated in terms of human interaction, happy people live in a happy world, hostile people live in a hostile world. Everyone we meet is our mirror.”
It is important to understand that resistance to new ways of thinking, doing or being is a part of human nature. Stepping out of our comfort zone is challenging. We are in the habit of thinking, behaving and responding in certain ways, based on what we were taught growing up. Change can threaten our security and self-confidence. The status quo feels safe.
Even Einstein was not immune to this phenomenon. Operating out of the world view, based on Newtonian physics, that the cosmos was fixed, much like a machine, he denied the results of his findings, E=MC2, that would indicate that the universe was expanding. He was so reluctant to offer information that would radically alter what for centuries had been held as truth, that he changed the numbers in his equation to reflect a static, fixed universe. It was only after Russian mathematician, Alexander Friedmann, called him on it that he corrected the mistake.
With the advent of Quantum Physics we have entered a new paradigm that challenges our old way of believing about the world and how it operates. We now know that everything is energy, not only solid matter, but our thoughts, feelings and words as well. We also know that energy is tangible. All matter vibrates at different frequencies. Every feeling has a different frequency. When people walk into a room you pick up their energy. You can tell if they are excited, angry, or peaceful.
This is very important for parents to realize, because children are especially vulnerable to the energy of their parents. Esther & Jerry Hicks (The teachings of Abraham) say that children mimic the vibrations of their parents long before they mimic their words. So, in keeping with the law of attraction, happy parents raise happy children. As a parent, your state of mind, what you focus on, and how you feel has a tangible impact on your children.
The key to creating anything is focus and intensity of feelings. You always bring to yourself what you constantly focus on. What you have focused on and the intensity of your feelings about it is what you have gotten from birth.

Abraham speaking through Esther Hicks, answers the question: “What is Abraham-Hicks”? Recorded on the July, 2007 Alaskan Cruise.Esther & Jerry Hicks are the authors of numerous books based on the Teachings of Abraham and their latest book, “Money and The Law of Attraction”, reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. For over 20 years, Esther has translated blocks of thought from “Non-Physical Source Energy” – which she also identifies as her “Inner Being” or “Soul” – and who refer to themselves in the plural as “Abraham” (no relation to the Biblical figure). Esther doesn’t use the word “channeling” to describe her process, but understands if others do.
