There are hundreds of books about the law of attraction.  I have read about a  dozen of them including The Secret, Think and Grow Rich, multiple Wayne Dyer books, and The Law of Attraction by Jerry and Esther Hicks.  The basic concept of all the books is simple.  Your thoughts create the life that you are living.

The fascinating thing about this topic is it cannot be proven or unproven. It does make a lot of sense.  I know a lot of people who worry about things all the time.  For instance, my sister has always worried about having car problems.  Well, guess what?  She has had more car problems than anyone else I have ever met.

When I was younger I was always sick.  There wasnt a school year I completed where I wasnt out sick at least 25 days.  I was so used to being sick, I carried that negative thought process with me into my 20s.  I would always think to myself, well, it is getting cold outside, I will be getting sick soon.  As you wish said the universe.  Within a week of me having that thought, I was sick.  The funny thing is, about 6 or 7 years ago, I stopped believing in sickness.  Sure enough, I might have had one minor cold in that time frame.

For some reason, our minds are trained to think from a negative, worrying slant –  Dont  do this or something bad will happen.  It seems to be very difficult to think from a positive slant.  How many times do we say, If I do this, something great will happen!?  Think about it.  Over the next day, think about how many times you have worried about something, or thought that something bad will happen if you do or dont do something.

In The Law of Attraction by Jerry and Esther Hicks, one suggestion they make is to tell yourself hour by hour that things will be great.  For instance, when you wake up in the morning say, I am going to have a wonderful, tasty breakfast and a nice, warm, relaxing shower.  Then when you get into your car to go to work, say, I am going to have a smooth ride to work and will hear my favorite music on the radio.   On a personal note, simply writing those two statements made me feel good!

With all the bad news that is thrown at us on t.v. and all the bad things that seem to happen on a daily basis in our lives and the lives of others, it is extremely difficult to have a positive mindset.  But if we take it one hour at a time, we should be able to change this and start to think from a positive point of view.  Thinking from a positive point view will bring positive things into our lives.  Give it a try.  All it takes is some thinking.
