The Secret was just the tip of the iceberg.
The cosmic law of attraction is an ancient universal law that was brought to light from Abraham through Esther Hicks.
Esther Hicks was part of the bestselling book and DVD "The Secret" when it was released by Rhonda Byrne in 2006. The book and DVD gained a lot of attention worldwide. The media picked it up and The Cosmic Law of Attraction became a very well known universal law.
The people behind the movie was featured on popular talks shows like Oprah and Larry King raising the interest even higher.
According to Wikipedia "Esther Hicks was a narrator and star of the original version of the film The Secret. However, the footage featuring Hicks was removed from the later "Extended Edition" after a conflict between Hicks and the film's creator Rhonda Byrne. The conflict is reported as being primarily about intellectual property rights and money. After the film's release, the book, Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham, by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks (a abraham-hicks book) made the New York Times Best Sellers list", drawing even more attention and interest to this topic."
The Cosmic Law of Attraction insists that all things similar in nature will naturally gravitate to one another and magnetize one another into their own field. This applies to all things in the Universe; it also applies to thought. Thought is energy and it is magnetic to those things with a similar vibration.
Like attracts like - so in a nutshell you attract what you think about and what you feel strongly about. However after the book and movie The Secret came out scientists disputed that the Cosmic Law of Attraction works - they said that like does not attract like. If you take two positive magnets towards each other they will actually repel - not attract.
So how can this be explained?
If you want to attract something you need to be at the same vibrational frequency as what you want - The Law of Resonance states that anything that is on the same vibrational frequency makes itself known to each other. They vibrate on the same frequency. When we send out signals on a certain frequency through are thoughts and emotions the universe respond to us with anything and everything that resonates with that frequency.
Hence we should learn to resonate with what we want instead of resonating with what we are doubtful of, fearful of and so on.
When we do that our thoughts and emotions will become things.
You reap what you sow.
In this video-clip on the Larry King show - Oprah share how she got a part in the movie The Color Purple and it was all about how she was thinking, feeling and drawing it into her life by using the Cosmic Law of Attraction - by putting all her emotions behind it. She used the formula thought + emotions = attraction to get what she wanted.
