you should focus on the experience of collecting the big cheque from the lottery company's offices and hearing the words "congratulations" over and over again. If you miss the 'congratulations' bit - then it could be compensation for a lawsuit etc (you don't want that). If you want to really test the "secret" then make a VERY specific thought that leaves no room for mis-interpretation. If that comes true (and you have it written down and dated!... well then you'll be the first to really prove this "secret" to be valid.
Personally I focused on "being happy" and although not one single thing in my life has gone to plan... I am happier than in any dream I ever had. So I suggest you get very specific (for specific wishes) or very vague for values/spiritual needs.
Well, we're all quite away that millions of children die from starvation in the continent of Africa because they simply didn't 'want' to live enough. To me. that represents serious reprecussions about the existence of 'The law of attraction'. Hilarious.
I too have struggled with understanding this. But you have to look at the big picture and see that there is a reason for everything. People are born into a specific place and a specific time- this is a choice that happens prior to being born based on what lessons we need or want to learn from the human experience. So should we ignore and do nothing in this belief that they must have chosen that way? No- because we too have chosen to be where we are and compassion and helping is also a lesson for us- it goes both ways. We can use the law of attraction to improve our own situation and in turn be able to improve other peoples situation.
I think the book is too commercialised. Although there is some truth in it....there isn't much to help....One book that I read I felt was truly awesome is Hidden Mind Secrets....I would recommend this.
