Like Thoughts
Rhonda Byrne


The law of attraction says like attracts like, and so as you think a thought, you are also attracting like thoughts to you.  Here are some examples you may have experienced of the law of attraction in your life:

Have you ever started thinking about something you were not happy about, and the more you thought about it the worse it seemed?  That's because as you think one sustained thought, the law of attraction immediately brings more like thoughts to you.  In a matter of minutes, you have gotten so many like unhappy thoughts coming to you that the situation seems to be getting worse.  The more you think about it, the more upset you get.

You may have experienced attracting like thoughts when you listened to a song, and then found out you couldn't get that song out of your head.  The song just kept playing over and over in your mind.  When you listened to that song, even though you may not have realized it, you gave your full attention and focus of thought to it.  As you did that, you were powerfully attracting more like thoughts of that song, and so the law of attraction moved into action and delivered more thoughts of that song, over and over again.

Your life right now is a reflection of your past thoughts.  That includes all the great things, and all the things you consider not so great.

Since you attract to you what you think about most, it is easy to see what your dominant thoughts have been on every subject of your life, because that is what you have experienced.  Until now!

If you can think about what you want in your mind, and make that your dominant thought, you will bring it into your life. . . .

Thoughts are magnetic, and thoughts have a frequency.  As you think, those thoughts are sent out into the Universe, and they magnetically attract all like things that are on the same frequency.  Everything sent out returns to the source.  And that source is you.

Think of it this way:  we understand that a television station's transmission tower broadcasts via a frequency, which is transformed into pictures on your television.  Most of us don't really understand how it works, but we know that each channel has a frequency and when we tune into that frequency we see the picture on our television.  We choose the frequency by selecting the channel, and we then receive the pictures broadcast on that channel.  If we want to see different pictures on our television, we change the channel and tune into a new frequency. . . .

The pictures you receive from the transmission of your thoughts are not on a television screen in your living room, they are the pictures of your life!  Your thoughts create the frequency, they attract like things on that frequency, and then they are broadcast back to you as your life pictures.  If you want to change anything in your life, change the channel and change the frequency by changing your thoughts.

As you think of yourself living in abundance, you are powerfully and consciously determining your life through the law of attraction.  It's that easy.  But then the most obvious question becomes, "Why isn't everybody living the life of their dreams?"

The only reason why people don't have what they want is because they are thinking more about what they don't want than what they do want.  Listen to your thoughts, and listen to the words you are saying.  The law is absolute and there are no mistakes.

An epidemic worse than any plague that humankind has ever seen has been raging for centuries.  It is the "don't want" epidemic.  People keep this epidemic alive when they predominantly think, speak, act, and focus on what they "don't want."  But this is the generation that will change history, because we are receiving the knowledge that can free us of this epidemic!  It begins with you, and you can become a pioneer of this new thought movement by simply thinking and speaking about what you want.

The law of attraction is a law of nature.  It is impersonal and it does not see good things or bad things.  It is receiving your thoughts and reflecting back to you those thoughts as your life experience.  The law of attraction simply gives you whatever it is you are thinking about.

The law of attraction doesn't care whether you
perceive something to be good or bad, or whether you
don't want it or whether you do want it.  It's
responding to your thoughts.  So if you're looking at
a mountain of debt, feeling terrible about it, that's
the signal you're putting out into the Universe.  "I feel
really bad because of all this debt I've got."  You're
just affirming it to yourself.  You feel it on every level
of your being.  That's what you're going to get more of.

The clearly established law of thought as a force is that like creates like and
like attracts like.  The hopeful, cheerful, confident find themselves
continually growing in faith, in confident, healthy optimism, in courage; they
are also continually attracting and drawing to themselves, thus gaining as friends
and helpers those of similar qualities and possessions, and they are likewise
inspiring these qualities in others.  Courage and faith beget energy and power;
energy and power rightly directed bring success.  Such, as a rule, are
the successful people--successful simply by way of natural law.

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a defeatist
or negative thought.  Since we create through thought, we need to concentrate
very strongly on positive thoughts.  If you think you can't do something,
you can't.  But if you think you can, you may be surprised to discover that
you can.  It is important that our thoughts be constantly for the best that could
happen in a situation--for the good things we would like to see happen.
