With the book and movie The Secret gaining so much popularity, the Law of Attraction has become a focus for many people. What most people don’t know, however, is that this is an ancient principle, not something new. Its first popularity, however, was due to… spirits of the dead!
Well, not exactly. In the mid 19th century, a new religion developed. Called Spiritualism, its main focus was the séance. People would gather and, with the help of a person known as a Medium, communicate with deceased loved one. Unfortunately, because the séance often took place in the dark, there was room for fraud. Although Spiritualism continues to this day, by the early 20th century it was losing popularity.
Spiritualism was more than just the séance. Some of the philosophy was adopted with other beliefs into a burgeoning spiritual trend called New Thought, the precursor to what is now called the New Age. Several New Thought writers used the expression Law of Attraction by name. It has two major concepts:
Like attracts like
Thought precedes manifestation
This is important: there is much more to the Law of Attraction than these concepts. Specifically, the simplistic idea that “if you just think about something you want you will bring it to you” isn’t enough. You have to work to manifest your desires.
Nowhere was this more apparent than in the works of the modern father of the Law of Attraction, Napoleon Hill. Hill met with wealthy industrialist Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie gave Hill introductions to some of the most famous wealthy people and great minds of the age. Hill interviewed them and discovered similarities that brought them success. In 1937 Hill published his most famous book, Think and Grow Rich, one of the best selling books in history.
Hill called his principles the Law of Success, but it was simply the most complete version of the Law of Attraction ever presented. Hill went on to write more books and a mail-order course, all of which were variations of his main book and often contained the same stories and examples.
One of Hill’s principles was that if you want something, you must focus your entire life and energy on achieving it. Yes, like attracts like: focus on something and, if you work for it, you can obtain your goal. Yes, thought precedes manifestation: you have to clearly determine your goal before you can determine what is needed to manifest it. But you also have to put all of your energies toward achieving that goal. You have to be single-minded. You have to turn all of your energies to achieving your goal and not to anything else. This means your every thought and action should be on your goal. And one thing that could drain you of energy and turn you from your goal, one thing you should abandon until after you reach your goal, was sex.
And this was Hill’s mistake.
At the time, most people thought sex was just for procreation or a frivolous waste of energy. There was no wide access to the secrets of Tantra and ancient Western forms of spiritualized sexuality.
The truth is that sex doesn’t have to be a drain of energy, In fact, it can increase your energy and help you focus that energy toward your goal. Here is an easy technique to accomplish this that you can use:
1. Make a drawing or use a photo of your desired goal. If possible, include an image of yourself in the picture.
2. Take it with you everywhere and look at it when you can. This includes when you have sex.
3. While you are having sex, remember to open your eyes and look at the image! This is especially true when you climax.
The result is that you will literally “program” and charge your unconscious mind to achieve your goal! The combination of the sex-charged and programmed unconscious mind combined with your goal-driven actions to manifest your desires will be unstoppable!
