If I could stand on the rooftop and yell it to every person who visits my site, I would have a mailing list that has eliminated the weak, the slothful, the unable to think for themselves crowd.
So, what is the “famous” law of attraction myth and what are the common characteristics of the people who believe in it?
In the New Thought philosophy, the law of attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. The teaching is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and that through the process of “like energy attracting like energy” a person can improve their own health, wealth and personal relationships.
The concept of law of attraction received criticism in skeptical essays, such as Robert Todd Carroll’s The Skeptic’s Dictionary.
Law of attraction is an example of a pseudoscience.
