I am sure that a lot of people around the world would love to know if the law of attraction or as it is also know LOA really works and can it help make you life better. For this reason I decided to write this article based around my own experience of the law of attraction and the effect it has had on my life.

What Is The Law Of Attraction And Does It Actually Work

Movies such as the secret and the many books that have been written on this subject suggest that the human mind can subconsciously attract anything it desires giving you happiness, wealth and health. This really is one of those things that sounds to good to be true and a lot of people are very sceptical and it is often referred to as a con. At the start I was very sceptical about the true effectiveness of the law of attraction but I have now become a believer and I am going to share with you all my story of how I stumbled on the law of attraction and what it has done for me.

Back in February 2014 I hit the lowest point of my life, I was at a junction where I felt I only had two options the first being to completely give up on life and go the suicide route and the second was to seek help and fight my way out of serious depression. This stage of my life was extremely hard, I had no idea what to do or how to ask for help I felt so alone and useless, but with the help of my wife I sought help and decided to rebuild my life. This conscious decision to fight my way out of depression set in motion a series of events which has undoubted save my life.

The first thing that happened was I was given the book “the power of now by a friend” as a birthday present and came completely out of the blue. This particular friend is a very spiritual person and she said that she had a feeling that this book was something I would find useful. It is important to know at this point that no one outside of my family had any idea about my depression as after several years of practice I am extremely good at hiding it.

Although I found “the power of now” a little extreme for me it was the start of what turned out to be a path to a greater life. After being given “the power of now” I was told about “the secret” and since I am a lover of movies I decided to watch this movie and see what it was about. This was my first taste of the law of attraction and I found the whole theory very interesting so I decided to give some of the tips in the movie a try.

As I found that the suggestion of having a gratitude stone and each day when I got out of bed listing all the things I was grateful of very grounding and I started to do some further research into the teachings around the law of attraction. While I was in the process of researching the law of attraction I stumbled upon a book written in 1910 by a chap called Wallace Wattle called “the science of getting rich” on Amazon available for free in kindle format. As it was free I decided to download the book and set to reading it straight away. Immediately “the science of getting rich” hit a cord with me and I could not put it down, in fact I read the book twice in the space of a week just to ensure I had not missed anything.

At this point I had no idea that Rhonda Bryne, who created the secret had based her work on Wallace Wattles “the science of getting rich” this was something I later learned when I was watching the Oprah Winfrey program on “the secret”. It appears that my mind had subconsciously attracted the “science of getting rich” to me as it was the next piece of the puzzle in reconstructing my life. I say this as no sooner had I downloaded “the science of getting rich” the price went back up and in all honesty if I had not got this book for free I would not have ever read it.

Since then I have become more and more immersed in learning the theory’s behind the law of attraction and have managed to attract several other books into my life, but by far the most important book of all was “the Alchemist”. The story behind me and “the Alchemist” is an interesting one and once again involves an Oprah Winfrey show, now up until I watched the Oprah Winfrey show featuring “the secret” I had never watched one of her shows, so the fact that it was Oprah that put me onto “the Alchemist” is another sign of the law of attraction at work. One evening my wife stumbled on this particular Oprah episode, where she was interviewing Pherrell Williams and as there was nothing else on we decided to watch the interview. Pherrell’s story was extremely interesting and during the interview he revealed that one of the biggest influences in his life was the book “the Alchemist”.

Now this is where it gets interesting, when Pherrell started to discuss “the Alchemist” and the effect it had on the way he viewed life, I remembered that I had been given that exact book about three years prior and it was sat in a draw upstairs. I immediately hunted out the book and started to read it, from the very first few words I was hooked by this magnificent book and just could not put it down. It appears that “the Alchemist” had been sat waiting for me to reach the point when I needed it most and presented itself at the perfect time.

Since then I have attracted several other pieces of literature and my mental health has improved dramatically, meaning that I could come off the anti depressant drugs I was taking in only two months. Not only has my health improved but my relationships have as well and I am now starting to attract more money into my life by sharing my journey from depression to a happier and healthier life. For me finding out about the law of attraction has not only improved my life, it saved my life and has given me great hope for the future.

I have not paid a penny for any of the books I have read either, there is so much good information available for free on this subject, which destroys the argument that those who write about the law of attraction are trying to con you out of money so they can get rich from others despair. Yes there are good books you can buy on the law of attraction, but as I have proved you can also attract what you need for free.

For me the law of attraction has worked and is getting stronger as each day passes, I now have belief in my self and faith that the future is going to be very bright for me and my family. Any thing that gives hope and faith to people who are on the edge can only be a good thing and that is exactly what the law of attraction does.

Hi you can also try John Kehoe's book entitled MindPower. I'm sure it will be a most valuable tool. I did the course in South Africa and it helped me earn my degree.
