The most important piece of information in the book is the concept that “like attracts like.” This is a universal law, and many spiritual practices have been founded on it. The Theosophists and the secular Unity Church have it at their core, and as Rhonda Byrne points out, it has always shown up in some form in spiritual traditions.
The law of attraction is as real to me as anything in my life. Anything that makes the very real law of attraction available to people is a great service. From working with all of you, I get a constantly reinforced picture of the power you all have to create your lives. My work is to help with the birthing process. Adding the blueprint of the law of attraction is a great asset to anyone’s energetic well being.
So, is this going to be a love fest about this book? No, not completely. While I have firm beliefs about the abundance that is available to us, I believe that Rhonda Byrne presents the material in an overly simplistic way. One section that set my teeth on edge was the chapter devoted to health. She puts too much of the result of enjoying good health on the law of attraction and the simple removal of negativity to create health. I think that is irresponsible. What about environmental issues and their effect on health? What about genetics? Now, I happen to believe that even one’s genetics can be re-worked, but not in every instance. And, it is a very big project! To say one becomes ill because they have an imbalance in their love and gratitude quotient is just adding one more burden to someone facing a health challenge. “Every form of healing has its place”, according to Dr. John Demartini, and I’d like to second that.
If the universal law of attraction is a new concept to you, then this is a must-read. It will resonate with most readers. Although too simple and broad brush, the author really makes the reader feel that, indeed, anything is possible, and I agree with that!
