Manifest Monday: William Walker Atkinson

Manifest Monday is a weekly post in which we highlight a law of attraction-related resource you might find useful.

Recently, while doing some research online, I came across a debate people where having over who originally coined the term “law of attraction”.

Someone made mention of an author named William Walker Atkinson.

While I thought I had heard of all the New Thought authors who had written about manifesting in the early part of the 20th century, I was surprised to come across a man I was unfamiliar with nor had never seen mentioned before.

Back in 1906, William Walker Atkins published a book called Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World. The book is small, but includes some very direct and useful ideas about manifesting.

If you’ve read a great deal about the law of attraction, what he writes isn’t anything you haven’t come across before. Yet, it’s still fascinating to read about manifesting from a different voice—one that lived 105 years ago.

An excerpt:

Strong expectancy is a powerful magnet. He of the strong, confident desire attracts to him the things best calculated to aid him – persons, things circumstances, surroundings; if he desires them hopefully, trustfully, confidently, calmly. And, equally true, he who Fears a thing generally manages to start into operation forces which will cause the thing he feared to come upon him. Don’t you see, the man who Fears really expects the feared thing, and the eyes of the Law is the same as if he really had wished for or desired it? The Law is operative in both cases – the principle is the same.

You can read Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World at this Web site.

There’s something else I wanted to share:

Kelly Howell, the woman who created the BrainSync meditation audios, recently tweeted some good advice:

A good way to meditate is to bring awareness to your heart and feel love. Increase feelings of appreciation and gratitude for no other reason than to resonate with that energy.

Have you found any good resources lately? Feel free to share them in the comments below.
