According to Wikipedia, a more modern consensus among “New Thought” thinkers is that the Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too.

Peanut - I find this to be true in my life. I find it to be so true that I purposefully determine what I want to bring in - and why - and place my intention behind focusing on this thought. Then I get out of my own way, and allow it to manifest as Universe sees fit. :)

I find the Law of Attraction certainly works in my life. What I also find when I work with it is that I need to be conscious of my thoughts, and bring them back to what I really want, withouth the little "naysayers" that can creep into my mind. Dani

Peanut - I do think that we attract things into our life by thinking about them. I don't quite know if that means that our thoughts "dictate" our life or not. I believe that we have free will, and that when we make the attempt to be conscious of our thoughts, and only think positive thoughts about what we truly want in our life, then that is what we will have. Blessings, Bonnie

I think it is only partially correct. I can THINK many things that never come true. And often times things I simply am not thinking about or intending come true. I think it's more complicated, it's a matter of Emotion fueling the thought. I have been experimenting with all emotions being healthy, and moving them through my body without attaching them to a thought. So yes when you use fear to fuel the thought, "I can't do this" you can't. When you fuel a thought like, "I Will succeed" with hope and joy, you do. The question I wondered was, I can fuel the thought, "I will succeed!" with the emotion of fear and still be manifesting? Yes! So it's not JUST thought and it's not JUST emotion, is a combo of those two plus intuition. My experience anyway.
