The Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction is an idea that is widespread in New Age and New Thought philosophy. It posits to never dwell on the negative, as the metaphysical principle of life is embodied in a "law of attraction": "you get what you think about, your thoughts determine your destiny."

Dick Sutphen affirms that the Law of Attraction states, in a nutshell, is like attracts like.

Books have been written on the subject by Michael Losier, Jerry and Esther Hicks, Penny Jordan, Sheryl Woods, Robert Anthony, Kristi Gold, Liz Gerstein, David Hooper, Sandra Anne Taylor, Ernest Holmes, William Walker Atkinson, Norman Vincent Peale, Robert Collier, Israel Regardie, Anastasia Kile, Mark Allen, Bob Proctor, Joe Vitale, Dr. Wilfredo Chevere, and Lynn Grabhorn.

One web site offers contacts with business, spiritual, and life coaches who include the "Law of Attraction" in their approach.

Esther Hicks, a professional channel, is one of the best-known proponents of the subject. Her web site describes it as "The most powerful law in the universe."

In March 2006 a film The Secret based on, and explaining, the "Law of Attraction", was broadcast through the internet. Larry King, Ellen Degeneres, and Oprah Winfrey have recorded shows based on the film. A book based on the film has recently been released
