Law of Attraction questioned

QUESTION: Masters, I have a question about the law of attraction (LOA). I feel that LOA is a dangerous delusion and that it also violates free will. For example, the law implies that whatever difficulties you have in life are the result of you thinking the wrong thoughts. So it appears that an abused child, a rape victim or a prisoner in a concentration camp was somehow to blame because they thought negative thoughts. This is offensive to victims and flies in the face of common sense. I also have unwanted attention from a guy who has been stalking me but my friend said that it is because I attract him through my thoughts. The universe would just supply them in abundance whether they are positive or negative. I strongly disagree and it is not logical. It angers me. Can you offer some explanation? ~Tania, Scotland

ANSWER: Each soul having a physical existence on planet Earth is a piece of energy broken off from the Creator or Source. As such you have the ability to bring to yourself that which you want and need to experience. The way that you accomplish this feat is through your intention. But you may use your powers to bring something to yourself only if it does not interfere with some action you have previously begun for learning purposes, or something you set up to occur before you came into bodily form.

The Law of Attraction in many forms has been a best seller for almost 100 years as people have sought to have an easy fix for their problems. It has sold as many books and courses as those practitioners of weight reduction programs. Just as weight loss is a discipline of altering your life patterns, so is the application of LOA.

You speak of any type of “like bringing like” to you as a violation of free will. That is not so because you are the broadcast point—you decide what you want to think, what energy you desire around you, and what dreams you would like to see fulfilled. LOA is merely a starting point for things coming from you. If someone else desires to do something, as with your stalker, that comes from them and not from you. However, if you spend time fixating on the event, you do give power to it to continue.

The biggest problem with your intentions being in the driver’s seat is that you have been taught to doubt your strengths and to believe in your limitations. You want someone to tell you what to do so that you do not have to take the responsibility for the result. Accepting what is said by those people who want to sell you their belief system is saying they know more about what you need than you do.

When you get upset by what someone is preaching, don’t listen. Giving attention to their ideas gives credibility to them. Ignore them. If others choose to join their bandwagon of true believers, you don’t have to be there, as well. Once the world was populated by people who swore the sun rotated around the Earth and the planet was a flat surface that you would fall off of if you got too near the edge. Always ask yourself if it feels right to you. LOA works in some situations when all the factors are in place, but it is not an absolute certainty for everything.
