The Law of Attraction Explained
A Radio Interview with Phil Harris: The
Law of AttractionPhil: What
I want to do here is start right in with the Law of Attraction.
Actually, in the news the last day or so, there has been all kinds
of criticisms of “The Secret” which…
Ken: I don’t really watch the news, Phil. So, I don’t really know
what’s going on in the world.
Phil: There are all kinds of people are out there criticizing “The
Secret” as being, “Oh, just another money making scheme and yeah,
there might be a little bit of truth to it and certainly it has some
uplifting kinds of ideas, but it could not be medically based, it
could be dangerous, it could be psychologically dangerous.” After
all, we don’t want people in the world actuality thinking that they
have any control over their own lives and their own realities.
Phil: There are very dangerous things out there and so I was going
through your essay’s on the Law of Attraction and they were clear
and well-written, for those people out there; if they have their
head in the sand and they haven’t heard of the Law of Attraction,
why don’t you give us a brief rundown, “what the Law of Attraction
Ken: Well, the Law of Attraction basically says that your thoughts
and beliefs determine what your actions are, and determine what you
experience. The Law of Attraction says that “like attracts like.”
The Law of Attraction also has a subtle energy component. The atom
is a nucleus surrounded by an electron cloud; in other words, the
electrons are moving about the nucleus very rapidly. The atom is
essentially a vibration, a lot of space, electrons vibrating around
a nucleus. And because everything in the physical universe is
composed of vibration, the universe is vibrational in nature, the
universe is just a sea of vibration. The universe is also composed
of thought and thought travels on this sea of vibration all over the
place. This is what I mean by a subtle energy component to the Law
of Attraction; because thought is not measurable with scientific
So what happens is that if you had a strong intent, a clearly
defined intent, a strong desire, magic can occur, coincidences can
occur that seem random and probably not scientifically explainable,
but actually they’re based upon this subtle communication between
beings that is going on invisibly, sort of like a radio or TV
signal. You really can’t see the radio signal. I mean you really
can’t see the signal that comes into your television set, but you
can certainly see the picture when you tune into that channel. It’s
the same way with the Law of Attraction. If you have a clearly
defined intent and you actually go out and start applying actions
into the real world, doors will open for you, windows of opportunity
will open, and seemingly random things will happen to you that you
couldn’t have predicted. I mean it’s really – it’s almost common
sense, it’s really not too far removed from scientific possibility.
In my book I refer to it as non–local communication –– at the speed
People will tell you
that if you work hard, you’re going to get the breaks. Well, with
the Law of Attraction, it says there is also a spiritual component –
there is a physical component to it, the action, but there is also a
spiritual component and the spiritual component can open those doors
Obviously you have to step through
them, but when you align your thoughts to what you want, amazing
things can happen. Frankly Phil, I’ve noticed in my life that all of
my successes and all of my failures are based upon this principle.
It’s really just saying that you, as an individual, are sovereign ––
the universe grants you that. As a human being you are an immortal
spirit temporarily associated with a physical body. You have been
granted free will to make your own choices, and the universe has
been designed to back up your choices; that is to say, the Law of
Attraction states that the universe will match you up with people
and situations that directly reflect the vibrational content of your
activated thoughts and beliefs. Not what you SAY you want, but what
you are REALLY focusing upon. That’s what you get!
Your emotions tell you where you are
at, at all times –– they are the display monitor to your personal
vibrational thought – computer. Lower emotions = self–limiting
thought, positive emotions = thought aligned with your true, inner
self and your true goals.
I know this is true, I know that when I
fail it’s because I had some thought or I had some long held belief
that’s holding me back and when I’m successful, It’s the most
amazing feeling, I have this very light hearted feeling, this
feeling of joy and the feeling of well-being and when I can get into
that state, things just happen for me.
What I say in my book, I make it very
clear about the vibrational universe, that this cannot be proved
objectively; I don’t really believe that you can test or prove it
broadly, that this is scientifically based. However, you can perform
personal life experiments. In other words, you can apply this on an
individual basis, just try it out and see if it works for you. You
can go to my website, you can read all the stuff, I have lots of
stuff there for free (http://www.kjmaclean.com/), I have articles on
the Law of Attraction from a spiritual and scientific point of view,
an entire section of my website is devoted to geometry; I have a
whole section about problems and you can just read this stuff and
just apply it to your life and see if it works for you. And if it
doesn’t work for you, well fine… at least you tried it, but don’t
dismiss something just because it sounds a little “woo woo.”
I don’t think it’s woo woo at all
because I know of scientific experiments that pretty much show that
as you said before, the observer affects the results of the
experiment. Whether you’re dealing with matter and energy, or in
human relationships, the Law of Attraction applies.
Phil: It’s kind of like the string
theory and the way I look at it is the universe is one huge tapestry
and the entire picture is interconnected by the various strings and
you can’t pluck on one without affecting the entire image.
Therefore, as you were saying, the various thoughts we send out
travel throughout the whole universe along these things that are
part of the universal fabric or the universal tapestry.
Ken: That’s a very good way of
expressing it, I have a tendency in my books not to try to go too
far…I mean when I wrote The Vibrational Universe I was very careful
and I tried not to say anything that I didn’t think I could back up
with research, but at some point you come to understand, if you are
a spiritually aware person, that you have to go beyond the standard
You have to trust yourself and you have
to trust your feelings and you have to trust ….you just have to know
and feel that you’re a spiritual being. I don’t know how to express
this off the cuff in an interview, but I know it so profoundly. I
know that when my body dies, I’m going to go on.
In fact, I wrote a book about that
because. … in October 2005, my father died and you know he basically
told me two weeks before he died that he was going to die and don’t
be sad when the phone call comes. Well, my mom calls me up…. my
step-mom calls me up and goes, “Dad died today.” I just fell apart –
and then the next day, I’m going out for my walk and I feel my
father there and I’m going, “wait a minute, you’re supposed to be
dead, what are you doing here?” We started having these
conversations and I wrote them up in my online forum, I think
they’re still posted there and I turned it into a book called, “I
Love You Dad.” It was one of the most profound experiences I’ve ever
Every day I would go out for my walk
and my Dad would be there, sometimes it would only be for five or
ten seconds, sometimes we’d have talks for fifteen – twenty minutes,
it was absolutely remarkable. After that experience, I knew.
Phil: And let’s face it Ken, each major
advancement that has occurred throughout human history has been by
those people that know there is something else, there is a different
way. I mean when DaVinci drew pictures of people in flying machines,
there was no question people had to have been saying at that time,
you’re absolutely nuts, people can’t fly.
Any of the advances in physics or
chemistry or the whole internet, the whole technology, it all comes
from those people who say reality as we know it number one; is not
static and number two, it can be changed and number three, I have an
idea that will change it and they go out and they do it. Obviously
the world that we exist in today is not the world that existed a
hundred years ago and every one of those changes occurred because of
somebody who had a different idea. It all stems from thought.
Ken: Precisely, have you ever written
any books? You are very well spoken.
Phil: Okay, yeah. I’ve got a spiritual
thriller – it’s a co-authored book, it’s called, “Waking God” and it
kind of turns religion upside down and it’s an interesting novel
that has the – basically it’s an esoteric treaties in the form of an
action packed novel and I have a new book coming out next month.
It’s called, “Jesus Taught It Too, The Early Roots of The Law of
Ken: That sounds good Phil. Well, you
know it’s funny because I actually wrote a novel too. I wrote a
novel about the Merkaba, the vehicle of consciousness, based upon
the fact that if consciousness is non–physical, then perhaps there
is a way to travel outside of the body and go into different
dimensions and to different places. I almost felt like I channeled
this book because I have an entire galaxy of races that come from
different star systems and interact with earth.
My main character, John Frankel, finds
a book in the arcane section of his local bookstore with strange
symbols in it, and with the help of his father translates it and it
turns out to be a powerful meditation with specific protocols for
activating the merkaba. I started writing this book and I couldn’t
stop! It turned out to be like 850 pages, it was a novel about the
potentials of consciousness and it’s called “Beyond the Beginning”
and I had so much fun writing that book, it probably took me a year
and a half to write it all down.
Phil: Is it published?
Ken: I offer it as an e-book, the thing
about publishing is that you have to get a cover, you have to pay
somebody to get a professional cover, but with an e-book, you can
write the thing and you can make a professional looking e-book for a
fraction of the cost as opposed to a regular published book. I do
intend to actually publish all of these books in soft cover and hard
cover; I bought a bunch of ISBN’s. Eventually, I’ll probably publish
all of these books in soft cover but right now they are available as
e-books on my website, actually you can buy “The Vibrational
Universe” and my other book “Dialogue Conversations with my Higher
Self” on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in softcover, or as e–books on
Phil: Okay, so for example people have
to understand that, say you and I were each sitting in our various
rooms and in this room I have a light on and I have a computer
screen and I’ve got some lights flashing at me and I’m picking up
various vibrations of colors and textures, but also at the very same
time there’s probably at least two hundred television signals
passing through me and into the room, who knows how many hundreds of
radio station signals pass through the room. I believe we’re
bombarded by something like six billion neutrinos passing through
our bodies each second, none of these things we’re aware of unless
we turn the channel to those particular vibrations. The whole notion
that we do in fact live in this sea, that we really have such
limited knowledge about, is empirically proven by the fact that in
our everyday experience, it happens.
Phil: It’s a real phenomenon.
Ken: It is.
Phil: Now, the Law of Attraction is
where I find a lot of people get hung up. The Law of Attraction, as
you state in one of your article, is that like attracts like. Well,
the immediate response you get is, “Wait a minute, opposites
attract, what are you talking about?” How do reconcile the notion of
like attracts like with the idea of no, no, no, opposites attract?
Ken: That is a good question. Opposites
do attract, but when we look a little deeper into the matter, we can
see that it is the similarities that make the opposites attract.
Take a battery, for instance. You have a positive pole and a
negative pole. At the positive pole is just a dearth of electrons
and at the negative pole is a surplus of electrons. How the battery
works is that the electrons at the negative end want to party with
their friends at the positive end, so the flow is from minus to
plus. But what is really happening is that the system is trying to
find balance. The common denominator in the system is the electron,
and how it flows from one pole to the other. Like attracts like!
Positive and negative are arbitrary symbolic assignments that help
us to understand how the system works.
Let’s say you’re at a flea market and
there’s a seller and a buyer. Now, those are sort of opposites, but
if you look at it closely, the buyer and the seller come together
like a key fitting into a lock. And what is the common denominator?
What the seller is selling! Both buyer and seller are aligned on the
thing the seller is selling. So like attracts like. An engineer who
likes fine wines and classical music doesn’t hang around with a beer
drinking construction worker who is into Mettalica.
I’ve studied the history of science a
little, and I believe that the whole positive and negative thing was
arbitrary convention. I mean the electrons were assigned negative
and protons were assigned positive. It could have been the other way
around and I actually have an explanation of that in the appendix of
my book, “The Vibrational Universe” and it’s called The Attraction
of Opposites. You can read about that if you are into it.
Phil: Like I said, it’s just a function
of that’s what one of the first thing that people say, “well I
learned in science that opposites attract so if I have good thoughts
than obviously I am going to attract bad things.”
Ken: Well, the thing that people need
to understand is they need to perform personal life experiments. In
other words – it’s one thing to say “Well the Law of Attraction is
this and the Law of Attraction is that” but what you need to do is
you actually need to apply it in your own life, try thinking good
thoughts and see what happens, try thinking bad thoughts and see
what happens. Actually I have a book called, “What Do You Do When
All Hell Breaks Loose,” because what I discovered is that sometimes
when I really, really have a strong desire and strong intent,
something the exact opposite will happen.
Ken: There’s a reason for that. What
happens- what I realized is that when you want something; you’re
coming from a place where you don’t have it.
Phil: That’s your belief; I don’t have
this so I want it.
Ken: Right, because if you already had
it, you wouldn’t want it. The only reason you want it is because you
don’t have it. So the reason why you don’t have it is because you
have certain thoughts and beliefs that have gotten you to that
position. Alright, so let’s say… you really want something that you
don’t have and then all of these old beliefs get reactivated and it
hits you…. in other words, when you begin to deliberately create
your new desire, you activate all the old beliefs that got you into
the unwanted place. That happens because you wouldn’t be where you
are unless you have those thoughts and beliefs to match. That’s
because all action follows thought.
Phil: Right, for example if somebody’s
having an economic difficulty, they need money, bottom line- they
need some money. So, they sit there and they say, “I don’t have any
money. Number one they’re affirming that they don’t have it, number
two, they begin to delve in the deep recesses in their mind, and
they begin to think about all the things that they were not able to
do because they didn’t have the money to do it. So, this becomes the
predominant thought pattern and at least at the subconscious level,
even though consciously they are saying, “I want money, I want
money,” subconsciously, the power is really into “I never really did
have any and I don’t have any now and I wish I had some more. The
energy is really like the tip of the iceberg but it is mostly with
the part that’s under the water.
Ken: Right! And what people do is they
give up. I mean that’s how all New Year’s Resolutions go haywire.
“Well, I tried it and it didn’t work, so forget it.” What I realized
is that the positive and the negative aren’t linear. There’s not a
positive end of the stick and a negative of the stick. Very often
when you’re in the blackest place, you’re only a very short step to
a huge breakthrough. That’s because the two ends are connected. You
know, everything in this physical universe is this way: you have
hot/cold; light/dark, dry/wet, etc. In the driest desert sometimes
there can suddenly come a rainstorm.
It’s circular; you’re traveling down
that path postulating your positive stuff and you are getting
negative and negative stuff and more and more negative stuff. But if
you can continue, what happens is the old vibration of your old
thoughts and beliefs gradually die away and the new vibration that
you’re creating gets stronger and stronger. It’s like playing the
piano, the note that you hit right now is the strongest but the
notes that you hit previously are still in the air. You can still
hear them but in the vibrational universal concept, if you continue
to create what you want, if you continue to create the vibration of
what you want – the old stuff gradually dies out. It may take a
while because like I say, you’re sitting in your old thoughts,
you’re sitting in your old beliefs and it may take a while to
Phil: How does a person get out of that
rut? What positive steps can they take to- like you say you want
something so badly, the opposite begins to happen to you? What has
to happen to the mindset? Give us the four, five, three, or ten
steps that might be necessary for a person to begin to get on that
ladder and to climb out of that hole that they were in.
Ken: Well, I can only speak from my
personal experience and I found that when you want something so bad,
you’re actually resisting the having of it. So what I do is I do a
directed meditation for at least fifteen minutes per day and I try
to release my resistance. I try to imagine my life exactly the way I
want it and if any negative thoughts come up, I just ignore them and
I try to get this feeling of what it would be like to have what I
want. The object of the meditation is to simply get to a place where
you feel better. However you do that- it almost doesn’t matter what
you think about: if you wanted A and you thought about B for a while
and it made you feel good, well that’s better than trying to think
about A and getting stuck in A.
The main idea is that the Law of
Attraction can only work if your thoughts are aligned with your
desire and when that happens, you feel good. You feel positive
emotion so the basic idea is to try to feel as positive as you can.
It almost doesn’t matter what you’re thinking about as long as you
can lower your resistance and allow what you’re wanting in.
Phil: So, if you are in fact worrying
about paying your bills and stuff, you’re getting yourself all
depressed. Just find some point in your life that you were actually
having a good time and think about it.
Ken: Well, sure. What’s the
alternative? It’s just continuing to be stuck in the same rut. You
can have a crummy life and feel crummy or you can have a crummy life
and feel good. Now, that might sound psychotic to some people, but I
can assure you from personal experience that if you have a crummy
life and you try to change your thoughts to the positive, then you
will start to feel better and when you start to feel better, your
life will change. That’s the whole thing about Law of Attraction.
Actually, you will attract people and
situations in your life that reflect your new intentions and your
new thoughts. Really, there is no magic wand, but the universe
itself is magic! You just have to apply it, you just have to use it
and once you do, you start feeling more confident, you feel more
empowered. Actually, you start noticing first off what I noticed;
that all of my negative thoughts manifested negatively and all my
positive thoughts manifested positively. In other words, I got to
the point where I couldn’t convince myself anymore that it was the
other guy’s fault, that it was the economy’s fault, that it was
President Bush’s fault, that it was my mom’s fault, that it was my
I finally had to face the reality that
– okay, there is something to this Law of Attraction stuff; I mean
it really does work. For me, it was personally empowering, I just
gained a sense of confidence knowing that if I could just change my
thoughts, I could change my life.
