Chapter 1 of Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World

This is my reading of the first chapter in “Thought Vibration or The Law of Attraction in the Thought World” written by William Walker Atkinson in 1906.

It is necessary to remove at least a fair degree of doubt from the mind regarding the validity of The Law of Attraction, that the truths to follow may be more readily and hospitably welcomed. A large step in the conscious use of this law for “legitimate and worthy purposes” is at least a moderate degree of belief in its power.

Without belief in its power, our thoughts will ever be haunted and darkened by the sickening shadow of doubt, which will serve to pull back with heavy hands on any positive creative thought we seek to send, and will tend to “sound the skeptics trumpet” in the very center of our minds. Without belief, the mighty power of Will is not called forth in its full power. Without belief in something, one can never direct their Will with focused force toward the accomplishment of it, and is hampered and bound in proportion to the disbelief. If we did not believe that we could walk, we never would have tried, and thus never would have created the neural pathways in our minds necessary to perform the task. Here, we see that belief is one of the first steps in the effective, purposeful use of this law, and much time and effort has been dedicated to the “why and how” of this law, in this book, for this reason.
