2History of the philosophy
This is not a new age philosophy or way of thinking. It is something that has been existent since the early 19th century. In the past, it was not known as the ‘law of attraction’. This is a term that was invented in the year 1877 after the first book was written by Helena Blavatsky. The term was later adapted at the end of the 19th century and it has been used since then. The interest in the matter grew and people began writing books in the 20th century. Books like Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill and You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay were written and based on the law of attraction concept.
In the 2006, the concept of the law of attraction was revised and it got exposure with the release of the film secret. The film was then converted to a book in 2007and since then the new philosophy has been widely accepted by the majority of the population.
The different authors have based their books on the concept of people attract what they think and so to change your life, then you need to change your thought process.
Even though, the philosophy has been greatly accepted, it has received its own share of criticism. Different people have criticized the law stating that it lacks refutability. They say that the law focuses on the aspect of positive thinking. But it does not factor in the different circumstances that affect people. It has been said that the law of attractions lacks the scientific reality. This is because it states that if someone gets sick, then it is their own fault. They focused on negative thoughts.
