Titlepic: Stop Studying Statistics: The Virtue of Avoiding Epidemiology Research

In order to be able to get our own private health in order, we have to stop looking at public health statistics.

Many people are interested in developments in regard to public health, and these are routinely presented in the media. Such developments may concern, for example, either the current or historical situation in terms of “dangerous diseases” that the public may experience first hand.

Another possibility is that such developments may concern scientific research and the prospect of “fighting” various diseases in the future, for the benefit of the general public.

Either way, such presentations typically do more harm than good. And this article explains why that may be so.

Where Is My Attention Focused?

Although we may not all be staunch believers in the Law of Attraction, it does not matter. That law, just like the law of gravitation, still works in the background, throughout all of our lives.

As Abraham-Hicks say in Ask and It Is Given (p. 25):

“Every thought vibrates, every thought radiates a signal, and every thought attracts a matching signal back. We call that process the Law of Attraction.”

And because of this, we need to become better at estimating where we should put our gaze, and where we should put our attention. For the Law of Attraction is always “on”, twenty-four seven, and continuously “boomerangs back” similar things to us.

Health Issues

In my opinion, the least desirable condition to be in is one of bad health. Sure, having money issues and relationship issues are also not desirable situations to be in. But when one’s body suddenly experiences (much) less than normal health, then most other so-called “issues” seem rather trivial.

And at this point, once having manifested some “symptom”, it is certainly not very easy to “undo” it. For when such a condition is present, the usual behavior is that one constantly “looks” at it, or otherwise experiences it in the form of pain or irritation, etc.

But if one looks at, or observes (and talks about, or remembers, or writes about, or discusses) one’s symptoms on a regular basis, then one “cements” one’s vibration in that exact spot, thereby assuring that one’s future manifestations will be the exact same as one’s current manifestations are.

In Abraham-Hicks’s words (The Law of Attraction, p. 49):

“The more you think about illness and worry about illness–the more you attract illness.”

So in order to stay away from such conditions, we need to carefully “slalom” our way through our environment, so that we do not focus on diseases, symptoms, and other medical conditions. What we want instead is to focus on the desired outcome, namely optimal health.

Before I go on, I just want to touch upon some observations about the typical path to “less-than-optimal-health”.

As Abraham-Hicks has pointed out in one of their live workshops, health problems are not just created by thinking about the topic “bad health” (in the form of focusing on diseases and symptoms). It is also created by thinking negatively about other topics (such as money, relationships, etc.).

Thus, it is of utmost importance to really start “getting a grip” of one’s own emotional status, in order to lay the best foundation possible for optimal health.

So apart from the recommendations about public health statistics that I present below, the serious student of Law of Attraction should make a general “touching up” of his vibration, especially if his “medium” mood is anywhere in the negative range (i.e. either N3, N2, or N1; see the negativity-positivity spectrum).

Stop Studying Statistics

So the general state of affairs in today’s modern world, according to Abraham-Hicks, is this (Money, and the Law of Attraction, p. 49):

“The steady offering of details of illness is very influential in the increasing of sickness in your society.”

And the reason it is so influential is because most people do not turn away from that information; instead they focus on those details (Money, and the Law of Attraction, p. 49):

“If you allow yourself to focus upon the constant barrage of unpleasant statistics regarding the never-ending stream of possible physical maladies, it cannot help but affect your personal point of attraction.”

But the remedy is simple: if you are a private individual, and not working as a public health researcher or epidemiologist, then just stop studying public health statistics.

What is Epidemiology?

There is no advantage for an individual person to study public health statistics, as seen from the perspective of the Law of Attraction. For public health statistics is mostly not about health, but about the statistical distribution of various maladies and problematic conditions.

The CDC clearly defines the word “epidemiology” in such a way as to mention that it’s “not just diseases” (link to CDC definition):

“By definition, epidemiology is the study (scientific, systematic, and data-driven) of the distribution (frequency, pattern) and determinants (causes, risk factors) of health-related states and events (not just diseases) in specified populations (neighborhood, school, city, state, country, global).”

But mostly it is about diseases and other negative problems and events. For when they go on describing which things are investigated (found on the same CDC webpage as the definition above), they list six things:

  1. Environmental exposures
  2. Infectious diseases
  3. Injuries
  4. Non-infectious diseases
  5. Natural disasters
  6. Terrorism

So the thought behind the idea that epidemiology is “not just [about] diseases” may have originated in the idea that also environmental exposures, natural disasters, and terrorism are included.

In other words, in this list we can see that the text “not just [about] diseases” did not mean that “positive health” is investigated, but rather that other, also negative, problems and events (that are not classified as ‘diseases’) are included in this discipline.

All in all, these six points then clearly suggest, to a student who wants to master the Law of Attraction, that he or she should re-focus onto more positive subject matters.


Public health statistics is mostly about diseases, and other negative problems and events.

Therefore, any student of the Law of Attraction would be well advised to avoid studying all the details of such statistics, and instead turn his attention to those things that he wants to manifest in his life, such as health, wealth, and happiness.
