Hi! recently, I learned about law of attraction and upon research, too many articles are spreading stating that it is incompatible with Catholicism. Yet I do not know in what way it contradicts the church teachings. I was thinking, maybe it all depends on how we apply law of attraction. But I may be wrong. I know there is this possibility that I havent yet grasped the concept of law of attraction very well.
The basic thing I know about law of attraction is that having positive thoughts bring positive things. and this is how I apply law of attraction:
If I were to assess my faith in God, I can say I have a rich faith. It is because of my faith in God that I believe that whatever good thing I ask for in prayer, I will get it. And because I have that belief, I always have positive thoughts.
Say for example, I am praying that I get a good job. Because of my faith, i believe that I will indeed get a good job. and because I know I am going to get what I prayed for, I only have positive thoughts or emotions.
and if in the same example you feel worried that you may not get a job despite your prayer, isn’t that a lack of faith? Now, why do many people say Law of attraction is against catholicism? shouldn’t law of attraction be also a practice for us catholics?
