I do gongyo + daimoku practice 2x per day in front of my gohonzon (practice mandala). I chant for stuff but the end result generally is that I get insight, not stuff. LOA is for the "stuff". Daimoku has more of the effect of "greasing the gears" of my LOA machine, than being a LOA machine in and of itself.
3. Law of Attraction practices - typically deep meditative states and what I call the "Ceiling Process".
4. some Huna stuff
1. I also ended up in the ChaosMagick forums of various sites, I think this happened because I was looking for what worked and did not get hung up on labels and dogma.
I'm not familiar with any of your #2 stuff
2. I also work with various types of trance states and self hypnosis. I actually think it's hard to really differentiate between the two, one may use words, images or even symbols to implant concepts into the subconscious. I find that the deeper the trance state I achieve the faster and more permanent the changes in my reality will be. The trick is to ride that razors edge right at unconsciousness, probably low theta or approaching delta brain wave patterns. If you go too far (for me anyway) I lose the ability to form thoughts, much less speak, this is usually the point where extremely vivid images will just spontaneously start running through my mind.
3. I am still an avid reader and try new things occasionally. One trusty old staple I use is the very simple "gratitude list" which helps keep me focused on the "haves" instead of the "have nots". I also do use some of the archetypal forces that have been built up over time by different groups of people
