The law of attraction is more than just thinking positively and hoping for the best. In fact there is concrete science behind your innate ability to attract everything you desire. This article will explain the scientific nuts and bolts behind the law of attraction.
If you’re like many people you love the idea of being able to use the law of attraction to manifest the things you want in life. But you may have a problem letting go and fully believing this will work for you because it’s contrary to what the mainstream education and media systems call reality.
For the next couple of minutes forget about what the average person considers realistic. After all, how many “average” people do you know who are really happy with their lives? The fact is most people are not scientists, and therefore it’s not fair to assume the status quo reality has anything to do with scientific knowledge.
It’s sad but true: Most people are not comfortable believing they can really have everything they want in life. They’d rather play it safe and stick with the familiar ground of disappointment and struggle.
The law of attraction is real. It’s every bit as real as gravity. In fact gravity is one example of the concept of attraction in action.
Bodies in our solar system maintain their orbits because the magnetic pull of the sun. You and I are able to remain rooted on the earth because we are attracted to it by gravitational forces.
If you boil these forces and laws down you’ll see they are not unlike the laws behind attraction and manifestation. This takes a bit of expansive and even abstract thinking, but it’s quite logical if you take the time to ponder it.
Now let’s have a look at a few specific scientific theories/studies that support the existence of the law of attraction.
First of all you should be aware of the belief many scientists hold that time is not linear as we perceive it. In other words, many theories exist that time does not move from point A to point B the way we experience it; in fact time does not really exist at all as a natural law.
Time is a construct. It’s a phenomenon we as humans agree on as a way of managing our lives and the world around us. The truth is everything that could happen is happening right now, and our conscious minds identify and separate these events into different moments and possibilities.
In simpler terms, endless possibilities are actually taking place right now in an unlimited number of dimensions, or universes. And the human mind is consciously aware of only one of these realities at a time, thus resulting in the illusion of time progressing moment to moment.
Hugh Everett was among the first researchers to popularize this idea through the Relative State Formulation. Later Bryce Seligman DeWitt renamed this formulation the Many-Worlds-Theory.
Some people also call this belief in infinite dimensions or realities the Multiple Worlds Theory. Physicist John Wheeler, among many others, suggests that each of us chooses the reality or universe to observe from moment to moment, thereby creating our own distinct reality.
Think about this for a moment. Right now, as you read this article, you are observing/occupying a specific “timeline” or dimension; you have a job, a home, friends, hobbies, etc. But there could also exist simultaneously another dimension or reality where you are a multi-millionaire, or one where you have your ideal body, or one where you live happily with your dream mate.
One way to think of the law of attraction is to consider it the act of choosing which reality to observe. By way of focused intention you attract to you the exact reality you prefer to inhabit.
Another great theory to help explain the law of attraction is the Wheeler-Feynman Absorber Theory, which was originally designed to explain the actions of charged particles, such as photons. Consider this model:
You have a desire, thus emitting specific particles. This makes sense as everything in the universe is made up of energetic particles, including thought waves.
As the particles of your thought/desire leave the source (you), they send an offer wave forward in time to the detectors, or possibilities. When this offer wave, made up of your intentions, reaches the target detector, or possibility, the detector responds with an echo wave.
These two waves (offer and echo) can interact in a number of ways. They can cancel one another out, build on one another, or intersect in other ways within an interference pattern.
This is all taken from a model using particles and waves. But since your thoughts are measurable energy, i.e. particles and/or waves depending on the moment of observation, the theory is totally applicable to you intending or attracting one of many possibilities to yourself by sending an offer wave out to multiple detectors or realities.
You are essentially vibrating a specific intention, or offer wave, and then choosing which detector, or result/reality, to observe through your thoughts and actions.
So if you’ve sent an offer wave in the form of an intention to create more money, and your thoughts and actions are focused on creating this reality, you will attract the new result you want. Conversely if you’ve sent the offer wave of creating more money but your thoughts and actions are fretting your current lack and complaining about what you don’t have you’ll end up canceling out your initial intention.
This article really just scratches the surface of the science behind the law of attraction. But as you can see here the dynamics at play are very real.
And in most cases the reasons for not believing in your ability to attract a chosen reality are pretty far from scientific. Let’s face it: just saying “that’s not possible” really doesn’t measure up to the evidence that supports the law of attraction.
