Is the LOA real?
This is a question which I believe ask all those who have encountered with this term in searching for the truth and the better life.
And what is the reason we ask that question?
The answer is very simple. If this law exists and if we can rely on it, then it means we can really achieve anything we want and that all our efforts make sense. But if it doesn’t exist, then why bother with it? Why should we do anything if we don’t have a basis for it?
Will we find scientific proof of the Law of attraction or not depends on whether we choose to believe it is real or imagined. If you believe this law is invented to mislead the masses, then you will search the entire internet and find the only evidence to support that belief. But if you choose to believe it is real, then you will find evidence for your conviction. Because I’m convinced the law of attraction is real and exists I’ll try to explain what it really is.
I’m not speaking about this law as it is a concept or hypothesis, but as a real natural, universal, stable law that is as real as Newton’s law of gravity, the basic laws of mechanics, laws of electric and magnetic effects, the law of the indestructibility of matter, the laws of thermodynamics and the law of conservation of mechanical energy.
Thus, the law of attraction is universal, natural law, which contains in its essence the maxim “Like attracts like.” And this raises the question: “What about the fact that opposites attract each other?” What I know, this law needs to be seen from the perspective of quantum physics.
Following text is an excerpt from Greg Braden – “The Language of the Devine Matrix”.
All we know in this universe is made of atoms. Science was first believed that the atoms are only particles, but later it proved atoms are actually particles and waves, i.e., quantum possibilities – possibilities of our lives (our perfect relationship, abundance, health, perfect job …). These waves are constantly in the flow. The moment you stop the waves they become stationary, pulsating waves. These waves represent the reality of our lives. These are atoms of reality. Stationary waves or atoms of reality are created by us through our beliefs, thoughts and feelings.
In 1909. scientists conducted a double-slit experiment that started the idea of quantum physics. They have taken a particle of matter – the photon which they fired through a barrier with a slit to the target barrier – detector.
In the first part of the experiment, the photons behaved like particles.
Science believed at that time the particles (elemental part of all existence) can only be at one place at one time. And because of that, they were not prepared for what will follow in the experiment.
In the second part of the experiment, they added the barrier another slit. In this phase of the experiment when they fired particle into the double slit barrier, the particle after passing through the slit “turned” into waves. It didn’t behave as a particle but as a wave. It had previously been unknown and unthinkable to science.
This raised the question of why? Who knows there are two slits? Photon? Scientists who observe the experiment?
What they found in this experiment is that the awareness of an observer affects the particle, or how the particles behave.
Why does it matter? Because this shows that our consciousness affects the physical reality in which we live. The observer changes the particle from which our world is created.
This experiment was repeated in 1998 in Israel with the same results. The experiment also showed the more an observer observes the particle, the effect is greater. So, the more we look at our physical world we have more influence on it. Only with being present in the world.
Buddhist tradition tells us virtually the same thing: “The reality exists only where the mind directs the focus.” If this is true, the question is, where is our focus?
According to what has been said, we can conclude that we are creators of our own reality who create with thoughts, beliefs and feelings.
