"Although you've always been surrounded by the evidence of the Law of Attraction, a conscious awareness of this powerful Law will be activated within you as you experience these beautiful cards; and your deliberate control of your experience will be dramatically enhanced. We know that you are meant to live a joyful life; and we also know that conscious, deliberate self-empowerment is essential to be able to life such as life". - Esther and Jerry Hicks
In the third deck set by Esther and Jerry Hicks, the teachings of non-physical entities known as Abraham are paired once again with the colorful, playful images of artist Kristina Swarner.
Featuring 60 cards, The Law of Attraction deck offers both affirmations and quote on topics like allowing well being, segment intending, appreciation, turning imagination into reality, deliberately reaching for joyous thoughts, manifestation and more. No companion booklet accompanies the cards, so I'm uncertain as to why they felt the need to number them.
Bright, cheerful images coupled with a statement or affirmation is on the front side of the cards while either another affirmation or direct quote/message from Abraham is on the other. Here are a few examples of the wisdom you'll find in the Law of Attraction Cards:
* I Can Turn a Downward Spiral Up - As you focus on the best of what you do have, even if it only is a small part of your experience, the Law of Attraction will now bring you more of the essence of that. And so, you can replace a `downward spiral' with a fast-moving `upward spiral' by simply directing your thoughts more to things you do want.
* My Manifesting Thoughts Are Buffered by Time - Your Earth is a nice environment for fine-turning your knowledge, for here your thoughts do not translate into instant equivalents--your thoughts are governed by a buffer of time...If you were instantly manifesting, you would be spending more time trying to fix your mistakes than you would in creating what you want.
* When Focusing Upon Solutions, I Feel Good - Focusing upon a solution brings you positive emotion; focusing upon a problem brings you negative emotion. While the differences are subtle, they are very important, for when you are feeling positive emotion, you are attracting into your experiences that which you want. When you are feeling negative emotion, you are in the process of attracting that which you do not want.
* My Appreciation of It Attracts Its Essence to Me - An extremely effective use of your Creative Workshop is to ponder the aspects you appreciate regarding your most important subjects. Utilizing the Workshop in this way accomplishes everything required for Deliberate Creation. In your emotion of appreciation, you are allowing that which you desire to manifest in your life experience.
If you enjoy the Teachings of Abraham, especially the book The Law of Attraction: The Basics of the Teachings of Abraham by Esther and Jerry Hicks, you'll no doubt love the Law of Attraction Cards. However, I highly recommend obtaining and reading another Hay House release titled Transforming Fate Into Destiny by Robert Ohotto--especially if you seem to be bumping up against harsh "realities" when trying to manifest certain things in your life. (Among other things, he discusses how the Law of Attraction MUST work within the confines of our Cosmic Contracts made before incarnation).
