I am new here! Perhaps the LoA drew me to the site as I am very interested in the subject on a less spiritual more psychological level. I was interested in Steve's question as to why are some children abused - are they attracting abuse? Well in many ways they often are by being targeted as the most vulnerbale within the 'pack' whether it be in a family or school or other child 'group', by their behaviour. Certain charactersistics will draw an abuser such as low self worth, isolation from others, introversion, neediness etc Therefore yes the LoA exist through manifest behaviours which a child is quite unaware of. Does it follow then that for all of us the message is behave as well as 'wish' for those things and those people that you desire to be attracted to you. Just closing your eyes and thinking positive thoughts about the lottery or that job you want just ain't it and misses the point entirely. Of two people going for the same job, the one who thinks positive thoughts about sitting in that employee chair is far less likely to succeed than the one who practices positive, job-oriented behaviours, tthe behaviour will 'attract' the job. Very Oriental in basic concept Basically the mind over matter part of it is in making that decision to act accordingly.
Does anyone agree with the child abuse thoughts??
It's a great site! Cheers,

Laying tracks before you leave the station means you will have a place to stop and a point to move on from or simply fulfill the desire to go straight on ahead. Either way it is a result of YOUR length of groundwork.
Yes, the best thing you can spend on your kids is a good length of time with them. Don't hurt them, just show them what it was they didnt do which would have been better to do than whatever naughty act they actually did do!
Remember to practise this yourself as you lay your tracks, and yes, your happy future is certain.

I was an abused child. I don't mean that in the sense that people so often mean it today - being yelled at or spanked - but an actual violent home. I have to live with cigarette scars on my arms and other less happy memories.
There are three children in my family, and two of us definitely "got it worse." Sure, LoA applies. We were the emotionally sensitive children and my father preyed on that. Our sensitivity restrained us from ruining our father's life by telling what sort of person he really was. I had scars to prove this, but I cared more about protecting him. We are products of our environment. This is why my father and I don't talk. Now that I've stood up to him, he won't speak to me. It doesn't really hurt. He knows now if he harmed me, I will not protect him.
I had to intentionally become a different person. It's funny; I was taking a personality test today and realized I didn't even get the same results I got years ago on the same test. The people I am attracting right now in my life tend to be a lot like me - damaged but improving, educated, fun, smart. It makes me feel good overall.
