Here are the best books about deliberate creation using the Law of Attraction that all serious students should have on their bookshelf.
KEYWORDS: Abraham-Hicks, beliefs, Deepak Chopra, deliberate creation, emotions, feelings, law of attraction, Maxwell Maltz, philosophy, psychology, Rhonda Byrne, Seth, thoughts.
In order to select the right books, you need to identify what you want in regard to the Law of Attraction.
Are you just “curious” to know about the Law of Attraction in general? Is your aim simply to get an approximate idea what Law of Attraction is all about?
Or is your intention such that you want to start using the Law of Attraction practically, in order to make your life better? Is your goal to “actually use it” so that you can have all those things and experiences that you always have dreamed about?
Depending on which of the two goals you have selected, your choice of books may differ. And I will explain more about that in the article below.
PART 1: INTRODUCTION
Although I recommended only two book authors of the Law of Attraction for people interested in creating better health, that was simply because getting actual, positive results with the Law of Attraction is not very easy.
This is especially true in life areas which are very important (as one’s own physical health is, which can be scary for people who have an “incurable” disease, or who are in chronic physical pain).
So for those life areas where one has spent a considerable time (maybe months or years) wishing that one’s situation was different, it is especially tricky to achieve results. For by such prolonged exposure to a troublesome position, one “cements” one’s negative experience so much that it is hard to move (by the grace of the Law of Attraction, who sends more negative energy whenever we think negatively, complaining about our situation).
Beginner’s Books on Law of Attraction
So what I am saying here is this: your choice of books depends on whether you are just curious about the Law of Attraction philosophy, or whether you are actually planning to try and manifest a better life for yourself.
If your aim is the former (i.e., you’re just curious), then books like The Secret (by Rhonda Byrne), The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success (by Deepak Chopra) or Psycho-Cybernetics (by Maxwell Maltz) may give you some approximate idea about what the Law of Attraction is and what it can do for you.
But do note that these books are not really depicting the Law of Attraction as it really is. Some leave out crucial details, and some say things that simply are not true, as compared to the authorized versions of the Law of Attraction. So don’t believe everything you read in those books (if you don’t want to).
Authorized Books on Law of Attraction
If your aim is the latter (i.e., to manifest a better life for yourself), the previously three books will not do, at least not for most people. Maybe some persons with extraordinary visualization skills, or other extraordinary talents, might still get some results. But for most people, it will, in my opinion, be almost impossible to manifest anything positive by using those books.
What I am saying is this: if your goal is to manifest a new job for yourself, or a new boyfriend, etc., then your aim must be to first master the Law of Attraction, not just “know a thing or two” about it.
And you have to realize that this “mastering” is a process that requires both theoretical knowledge and practical application and experimentation, on a daily basis.
This can be compared to any program at any accredited university: first you take your bachelor’s degree (which takes years), and then you enter a master’s program (a year or two), after which your theoretical knowledge is pretty good. You don’t know everything, but you have a very solid basis.
Unlike those university programs, however, you must also simultaneously try to set things in motion on a practical level in your own life. So you don’t wait four years before you start to meditate or do your self-talk exercises, etc., but you do those every day. And in parallel, you study the principles and processes of the Law of Attraction.
So what you need, in terms of books, is detailed descriptions of many different “case studies” and “examples”, geared toward many different goals and life areas. This way, you may (relatively) easily get a grip of what is to be done, and proceed in the right direction toward your own particular goals.
PART 2: BEST BOOKS ON LAW OF ATTRACTION
Part 2 is all about the best books on the basic theory and application of the Law of Attraction. The presentation below therefore do not include any “popular science-type” books that simplifies, or distorts, or excludes, vital information.
Although the topics I have listed below are focused toward the theory of the Law of Attraction with knowledge about thoughts, beliefs, and emotion (as opposed to “practical” topic such as health or money or relationships), these books typically also contain various information on how to manifest better health, how to deliberately create your own dream body, or how to manifest more money, or how to materialize a more pleasing romantic relationship, etc. [note 1]
For more details about which books are best for each of these special topics for students of the Law of Attraction, see, for example, my companion article Best Books on Manifesting Better Health.
