I have been practicing the Law of Attraction ever since my sister in law put the book ‘The Secret’ into my eager hands over 10 years ago.
I soaked it up like a sponge and could not wait to begin to practice it.
Since then I seem to eat LOA (Law of Attraction) books for breakfast and take online courses like it’s my job. I have been able to attract jobs, cars, and money - so I am all in and 100% a believer.
One of the reasons I am also such a fan is it seems to be a way that a lot of people are introduced to spirituality, or it appears to make spirituality more palatable to those that it usually would not be palatable for.
Law of attraction is big business, billions and billions of dollars business. It is growing, with many more authors springing up every day.
It has gotten to the point where what once was a simple practice because there were only so many options can now be an overly complicated practice because there is so much material out there.
I wanted to do a review of my top favorite LOA material to make things less overwhelming.
In my review, I tried to take into consideration the nature of the Highly Sensitive Person (Empath, Healer, Intuitive, etc) and with that, I based my opinion on three factors:
1) Genuine. Whether you know it or not, HSPs have a severe kryptonite: inauthenticity and disingenuousness. So because of my concern for my audience and their comfort level, anything that had that sort of language in it will not be listed here.
2) Effective. Does it work? Are the material and the exercises proposed effective? Does it do what it promises?
3) Actionable. We are all busy with kids, family, work, meal planning, learning, etc. We do not need our Law of Attraction served to us in a dish of over-complication. So, is the material succinct and doable?
(And before we go on, yes, some of these links are affiliate).
Based on that criteria—genuine, effective and actionable—here are my favorite LOA books and courses.
1) The Vortex – Esther and the late Jerry Hicks
Anything by Esther Hicks—and I do mean anything from books, youtube videos, to MP3s—are the best. No one explains it better than Abraham. Here is the catch. If you are new to LOA and your wooery tolerance is low, then this might not be the best place to start. Abraham is a group of souls that Esther Hicks channels. If channeling is a bit out there for you at this time in your life, then I would start elsewhere. However, if your wooery tolerance is medium to high, then please, for the love of god, start here because as the Carly Simon song says, “Nobody Does It Better!”
Remember when I talked about being authentic? Well, you may think that using terms like ‘badass’ is one of those inauthentic things the author is using to sell her stuff. I have bought a boatload of Jen Sincero’s work and this is her true nature. This is a woman who would call you a badass to your face, several times! Her tone is very irreverent and, for me, this is the funniest, most entertaining, and enjoyable book on LOA out there.
I really do love Sarah Prout. She seems very genuine and authentic to me. I also really like her e-course The Ancient Manifesting Ritual. It’s only $9 and comes with a lot of information and free gifts. But what I like most about it is that you can begin practicing this ritual right away. This program really passes the genuine, effective, and actionable test I spoke of above.
I know some of you more experienced in LOA will be asking where the ‘classic’ authors are, like Wattles and Hill. I think out of all the classics, the one whose material has held up and is still relevant and still speaks a language of this century is Florence Scovel Shinn. This book is no exception and I think is a must-read for all.
5) The Secret
This book is responsible for more LOA converts than any other, and so I say a hearty thank you to Rhonda Byrne. Because within those LOA converts are about a million people realizing and waking up to the fact that they have spiritual gifts. And on top of that, her material is beautiful. It is the basics and the beginning, but we all have to start somewhere, right?
I have really enjoyed reading Richard Dott’s books over the years. He is a prolific writer and has a lot of them! They are a light, gentle, easy read that is very effective in getting the principles of LOA through.
Louise Stapely is a woman after my own heart; practical! Just give it to me straight and show me how to do it and make it easy! That is what Louise does for LOA and does in this book. She gets to the point and gives you exercises that work.
So that’s it! Those are my favorite and my top 7 recommended books and programs for Law of Attraction for Empaths.
Stay tuned for my next blog where I will share one Law of Attraction practice out of Louise Stapely’s book that is the most powerful and effective for the empath.
