Law of Attraction is a New Age Teaching

What is Law of Attraction?

Here is the actual meaning for The Law of Attraction below:

"Because the law of cause and effect is continually at work, there is always an inner cause for every outer effect. Your outer world is a direct result of your inner world. Every circumstance in life is a result of a choice - and every choice is the result of a thought. All those things that fill your mind hold the keys to your reality. Your thoughts provide the fuel for your words, and your words provide the fuel for your world."
"The law of cause and effect also works with the law of attraction. Simply put, this means "like attracts like." If thoughts are things that  are made up of substance, then the material manifested in our lives is attracted to us by our spiritual thoughts. In other words, inspired experiences are caused by inspired thoughts."


Where Did the Law of Attraction Originate From ?
 

The phrase, "law of attraction" appears first in Hinduism and in a book of esoteric mysteries written by Madame Helena Blavatsky (source). Madame Blavatsky is the founder of Theosophy, a religion that worships Lucifer as god plus mankind.  She is known as the mother of the modern New Age Movement. The phrase "law of attraction" appears in the writings of Theosophical authors William Quan Judge and Annie Besant.  Besant claimed that the law of attraction is a form of karma.


 
 
Famous Author Napoleon Hill and Law of Attraction
 
 
Famous American Author, and best know for his books "Think and Grow Rich," and "Grow Rich with Peace of Mind," in his book  "The Law of Success in 16 Lessons"  in 1928 Hill directly makes references of the law of attraction more than several times.

However, Napoleon Hill received the information he wrote in his best selling books from Ascended Masters, otherwise known as spirit guides. In fact, in his book, "Grow Rich with Peace of Mind," he states that unseen spirits hovered over him, and that they gave him the materials and chapters for the book (source).

 Hill stated loud and clear that his ideas came from spirit entities. He wrote the following:

"Now again I have evidence that unseen friends hover about me, unknowable to the ordinary senses. In       my studies there is a group of strange beings who maintain a school of wisdom... The School has Masters who can disembody themselves and travel instantly to any place they choose... to give knowledge directly, by voices... Now I knew that one of these Masters had come across thousand of miles, through the night, into my study... I shall not set down every word he said... much of what he said already has been presented to you in the chapters of this book and will follow in other chapters. "You have earned the right to reveal a Supreme Secret to others," said the vibrant voice.  "You have been under the guidance of the Great School... Now you must give the world a blueprint (source)."



Esther Hicks and her Alter Ego Abraham teaching Law of Attraction

Esther Hicks channels the spirit/demon of Abraham to teach on the law of attraction. 


New Age spirit channelers that teach and write about "The Law of Attraction" are Esther and Jerry Hicks. They helped inspire Rhonda Byrne's popular book/dvd,  "The Secret."  The Hicks are two new age gurus who channeled a spirit called Abraham and received their information from this spirit entity (source). They even have a book out called, "The Law of Attraction: The Basic Teachings of Abraham."  In this book they state that is the most powerful law of the universe is the law of attraction.  In other words, like attracts like(source).  Interestingly enough, the spirit of Abraham, while speaking about Esther, equates her to Jesus Christ, Buddha, and Muhammad (source). 


Biblical Response to New Age Teaching

The Bible warns against people that seek knowledge from demonic spirits.  They are called mediums or spiritualist's.  The fact of the matter is, is that Blavatsky, Besant, Hill, and the Hicks are mediums that are aiding the advancement of the kingdom of darkness by leading men and women away from G-d. As Christians we are not supposed to regard mediums at all.  No matter how good the information these spiritual entities are giving, it doesn't come from the Holy Spirit.

Deuteronomy 18:10-11 says, "There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,  Or a charmer, or a consulter with a familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer."

Leviticus 19:31 says, "Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord."

  1. Biblical Prophecy Teaching Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life

  2. I recently became aware of Evelyn Hicks and her teachings. It saddens me that some many applaud and follower her. She denies the deity of Jesus Christ and typical of New Age teaching, labels him an enlightened being. There is nothing new under the sun and many false teachers will come as Christ's return tarries. Discernment and prayer are the keys

    Blessings.

    1. Yes you're correct! You see this in Word of Faith and New Apostolic Reformation Movements! Popular Mega-Preacher Cindy Trimm has written in her books about the Law of Attraction, which she mixes New Age Occult writings with scripture. 1 John 4:1 says Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
