Law Of Attraction Practitioner Steve G Jones | What Is Universal Law Of Attraction
We are what we attract, or so it says in this book. I initially purchased this book for my husband and it does offer some interesting reading material, just not really what I thought it would be after reading so many glowing reviews about the book. Clearly, one does have to be open-minded when reading this book, but also take it all with a grain of salt. It more reminds me of "The Secret" and all of it's hype when it was so popular. According to my understanding of the basic concepts of the book is that everything that happens or lack there of begins in our own minds. Yes, true, that "as so a man think, he becomes". The value of this book is in promoting the idea that you have more control over your life than you think. The mind is capable of a lot, including how your body lives, how you present yourself to other people, etc. When you have a positive train of thought, you will have better health, better prosperity and better life in general. That simply is true and cannot be denied. I think this book is a good stepping stone on where to begin, but is seems reminiscent of Napoleon Hill's, "Think and Grow Rich," or James Allen's, "As a Man Thinketh,". What the book doesn't tell you is that when negative things happen to you, your positive attitude can turn those things into far less tragic events. There are other books that will make this more clear.
Always have an awareness of the broader goal you have for your life. When life gets hectic, it is far too easy to make snap decisions, only to realize later those decisions have led you down a path that you did not intend to follow. When you maintain a strong and clear connection to your personal vision, it is easier to make decisions based on the option that moves you closer to that vision. - Tonya Echols, Thrive Coaching Solutions

Adherents also generally believe that as humankind gains greater understanding of the world, New Thought itself will evolve to assimilate new knowledge. Alan Anderson and Deb Whitehouse have described New Thought as a "process" in which each individual and even the New Thought Movement itself is "new every moment". Thomas McFaul has claimed "continuous revelation", with new insights being received by individuals continuously over time. Jean Houston has spoken of the "possible human", or what we are capable of becoming.
"It may not be exactly as you imagine it – say you make $35,000 as a writer and you imagine making $100,000. You may get an offer in a different field that meets the money requirement or possibly a different style of writing than you might be used to or an assignment that you did not expect. Point is, you will get what you ask for, even if it is not exactly as you had imagined. Now if you have no job and no income and ask for a Maserati, you probably won’t get it. You might, however, meet a new friend who has one and get to drive it," Estes states clearly.
Equally concerning is the New Thought movement’s emphasis on using faith and mental states as treatments for all human disease. While it has been supported that the use of relaxation therapy and other forms of alternative health practices are beneficial in improving the overall well-being of patients suffering from a wide variety of mental and physical health conditions (e.g., cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder), these practices are not effective in treating human disease alone, and should be undertaken in conjunction with modern medical therapies that have empirical support. This rejection of scientifically supported theories of disease and disease treatment is worsened by the New Thought movement’s assertion that mental states, attitudes, and faith in New Thought are the sole determinants of health.
The world of things is the other half of the world of thoughts. The inner informs the outer. The greater embraces the lesser. Matter is the counterpart of mind. Events are streams of thought... Man is, in the nature of things, a being of habit, and this he cannot alter; but he can alter his habits. He cannot alter the law of his nature, but he can adapt his nature to the law. No man wishes to alter the law of gravitation, but all men adapt themselves to it; they use it by bending to it, not by defying or ignoring it. Men do not run up against walls or jump over precipices in the hope that the law will alter for them. They walk alongside walls, and keep clear of precipices.
New Thought Millennials believe in the UDHR and Universal Spiritual Principles. If you want us to come to your center, show that you practice what you preach! And hang a copy of the UDHR behind your podium so that it is visible to the congregation at all times! And do us all a favor, drop the nonsense and have enough belief in what you are teaching to know it is great! And please, please, please don't try to sell us treatments on a crystal bed or classes which sound like introductions to Scientology. If we want to learn Scientology, we will get audited.
This book introduces New Thought, a more-than-a-century-old movement dedicated to the healing of body, pocketbook, and interpersonal relationships through persistent positive thinking and the acceptance of one's indwelling divinity.New Thought applies religious beliefs to solve the problems of daily living. Based largely on teachings from the Bible, it also incorporates Eastern wisdom and psychological principles. It is practical, spiritual, and distinctly American. The authors provide historical background, philosophical perspective, and new understanding.New Thought fulfills the contemporary hunger for a spirituality that promotes both the practice of the presence of God and health, wealth, and happiness here and now. This book is for everyone who wants to go deeper than most popular writing on spirituality and self-improvement, much of which is indebted to New Thought.New Thought still is evolving; it may yet be the point at which religion, philosophy, and science come together as the most effective combination to move the world to greater peace, plenty, health, and harmony. Whether you accept New Thought or reject it, it is important to learn more about what New Thought is, where it came from, how it is evolving, and how to use it, if you wish. These topics are what this book is about.
A common criticism surrounding personal development programs is that they are often treated as an arbitrary performance management tool to pay lip service to, but ultimately ignored. As such, many companies have decided to replace personal development programs with SMART Personal Development Objectives, which are regularly reviewed and updated. Personal Development Objectives help employees achieve career goals and improve overall performance.
"All Life indeed consists essentially in correspondences with various Environments. The artist's life is a correspondence with art; the musician's with music. To cut them off from these Environments is in that relation to cut off their Life. To be cut off from all Environment is death. To find a new Environment again and cultivate relation with it is to find a new Life."
One of the doctrinal sources of Mind-cure is the four Gospels; another is Emersonianism or New England transcendentalism; another is Berkeleyan idealism; another is spiritism, with its messages of "law" and "progress" and "development"; another the optimistic popular science evolutionism of which I have recently spoken; and, finally, Hinduism has contributed a strain. But the most characteristic feature of the mind-cure movement is an inspiration much more direct. The leaders in this faith have had an intuitive belief in the all-saving power of healthy-minded attitudes as such, in the conquering efficacy of courage, hope, and trust, and a correlative contempt for doubt, fear, worry, and all nervously precautionary states of mind. Their belief has in a general way been corroborated by the practical experience of their disciples; and this experience forms to-day a mass imposing in amount.

People are always surprised to learn Youtube is the world’s second largest search engine. But Pinterest works in a similar way. Just as you can search Google or Youtube for personal development content, you can do the same for Pinterest. Put in productivity, self-help or personal growth, and you’ll find hundreds of pictures, articles, and posters related to the topic.
The outer world is a reflection of our inner worlds. Where you are now is the result of the thoughts you had in the past. In order to change your thoughts and consequently your circumstances, you need to do the inner work required to shift your beliefs. Shifting beliefs takes work. Go to therapy, learn how to Tap, or book a session with a Reiki Master or Theta Healer. When you find yourself stuck or in an uncomfortable situation, ask yourself what beliefs might have put you there and then get proactive with finding ways to create new beliefs that are in better alignment with where you want to be.
The work of quantum physicists during recent years has helped to shine greater light on the incredible impact that the power of the mind has on our lives and the universe in general. The more that this idea is explored by scientists and great thinkers alike, the greater an understanding we have on just how significant a role the mind plays in shaping our lives and the world around us.
