A Universal Law of Attraction Exists
– But Believing It Isn’t Always Easy!
Most people who start working with Law of Attraction ideas quite quickly find the biggest obstacle to their success is belief (or rather, lack of belief!)
And yes, believing that the Law of Attraction will really give you what you want can be difficult. You may even find it hard there is such a thing as a Law of Attraction!
But it is a genuine principle constantly at work in the universe. You just need some proof of this, I guess!
So here’s a simple experiment to increase your faith and belief.
Testing the Force
Pam Grout has written a great little book called E-squared containing nine experiments.
These are designed, as she puts it, “to be conducted with absolutely no money and very little time”.
Why? Because they will demonstrate that spiritual principles are “as dependable as gravity and as consistent as Newton’s laws of motion”.
In other words, they will prove the Law Of Attraction is a reality.
Of course the idea of testing the Law of Attraction appeals to most people.
After all, we want proof of whether or not the ideas we have in our minds are valid principles in the world at large.
And nine simple experiments which take no money and very little time is a compelling idea, don’t you think?
So let’s look at a few of them here, so that you can try them for yourself.
This way, you can generate greater confidence in something that’s both mystical, spiritual and esoteric. And, at the same time, you will see how manifestation can support you by providing everything you desire and require.

In her book, Pam Grout also makes a few observations about the nature of the Law of Attraction.
To start with, she reminds us that what seems to be matter in our world is actually made up of energy – at its simplest level, we all know all matter is energy. Probably most people know that.
And of course because we have five senses and we live in the physical world, our attention is always drawn to the physical rather than to the spiritual or the energetic realms.
So we know energy is the basis of all matter. And energy is boundary-less and can spread throughout the entire universe. So perhaps you see the possibility that our thoughts – which are clearly energy – could interact with other energies in the universe. And if they do this, maybe they can affect the form in which energy comes into being (or manifests) as physical reality.
The energy realm from which manifestation takes place is often referred to as the field of infinite potentiality. Roughly speaking, this seems to correlate with what people call God, or The Great Mystery, or The Oneness, or Cosmic Consciousness, or Universal Intelligence… or one of a thousand other names.
I’m sure you’ll realize that in this context, using the Law of Attraction is just another name for something which closely resembles something people have been doing for millennia – praying. Think about it.
When you pray, you send out energy into the universe. You hope (or for those with more faith, you expect) that your prayer will affect how things appear in the physical world.
There is absolutely no difference between praying and trying to manifest a particular outcome with the Law of Attraction.

So it’s possible that our thoughts can affect the world around us. There’s even a kind of theoretical basis for it. (But only if studying quantum physics is something you want to do! Otherwise, just accept…)
Even so, it’s more challenging to deeply believe that you can use the Law of Attraction to create reality. In other words, to manifest what you want in the physical world.
There’s what I call a “believability” gap for most people here.
And so Pam Grout’s experiments serve a very useful function: they increase your confidence, reinforce your expectation about successful outcomes, and prove to you that manifestation and attraction is indeed a reality. (They do this by demonstrating to your physical senses the proof our brains need to an idea as a reality rather than a concept.)
Experiment Number One
This is the simplest experiment of all! You simply ask the Law of Attraction – no matter what you call it – for some evidence that it’s real.
Yep, it’s as simple as that.
As Pam Grout puts it: “…it’s now or never… we are done believing in something that gets its jollies by playing hide and seek. We want irrefutable proof. And we want it now.”
So what you’re going to do is to give The Universal Intelligence, or The Great Mystery, or God, or whatever you want to call it, 48 hours to produce some irrefutable proof that it has responded to your request.
Ask for an unexpected gift – something you wouldn’t normally receive. When this object manifests, you know the Law of Attraction is at work.
It could be an unexpected check in the mail, a card from a friend you haven’t spoken to in ages, a gift from somebody that’s completely unexpected, or anything else. The essence of this experiment is that the gift or “blessing” is really unexpected when you receive it.
You need to give a clear request and a definite deadline – and you might also want to ask for help in recognizing when you receive your gift.
Sure, you need to set aside your skepticism for a couple of days, but you should be able to do that.
Simply ask the universal intelligence for a blessing, an unexpected gift.
Make your requirement clear – not about what you’re hoping to get, because that’s going to be a mystery till it appears – but about the process you’re going through.
Simply tell the Cosmic Consciousness that you want proof it can manifest reality. And you want it within 48 hours. (Oh yes, and you want it in a form which you can immediately see as an unexpected gift or blessing.)
In other words, you give the universe exactly 48 hours to demonstrate to you that manifestation is an absolute reality.
Prepare to be surprised.
You might be interested to learn about one or two more of Pam Grout’s experiments.
As you know, the basis of all theories about how Law of Attraction operates is that we are all just a part of a big field of energy, like the world around us.
We impact that energy field with the power (or energy) of our minds. So experiments are easy to do….
Testing Theories of Attraction
The second experiment I want to describe is about manifesting material things.
As Pam says, most people seem to think that manifesting physical things using an energetic process – thinking and visualization – is some kind of “mysterious juju”.
But the reality is that it’s no more complicated than going from A to B with a SatNav or a map – you just need to know how it’s done….
A Practical Test
One of the first things you need to be clear about is your intention.
In life, intention is everything. It certainly lies behind everything the Law of Attraction manifests. In other words, before you do anything, you need to know you want. You need to have a goal.
And more subtly, you need to put out the right kind of energy to get anything. If you’re putting out energy which is centered on lack, or on the fear of adversity, you may find that’s what manifests for you.

So sending out positive energy in general, and sending out love in particular, generally results in you receiving love in return.
Similarly, if you send out blessings, you generally get blessed in return.
The more firm and positive your belief in success is, the more likely you are to manifest what you want. Pam tells the story of Augusten Burroughs who (as Pam relates it) simply decided to become a New York Times bestselling author.
Of course the conventional wisdom about becoming a highly successful author is that you practice for years. Oh yes, and you also get lots of rejection slips from publishers, before you finally have a massive breakthrough….
But in Burroughs’s case, it seems to have been a shorter journey. He took only 14 days to finish his first manuscript, which was published successfully. His second book was his memoir, “Running With Scissors“.
This spent over 70 consecutive weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It has been now published in 15 countries and made into a film.
Whether or not you can sum up such focused belief in the achievement of your own objective will affect your success in manifestation with the Law of Attraction. However, while you’re in this current experimental phase, there’s a simple technique you can use to set an intention to draw a particular event into your life.
A Simple Technique To Attract Things
As I’ve already implied, the Law of Attraction requires you to be very specific about the exact object or event you want to draw into your life. And since it’s only going to take 48 hours, it’s best not be too ambitious!
Start by simply deciding what you intend to manifest in the next 48 hours. Make this “something you can get your head around”, as Pat puts it. That might be a front row theatre ticket or flowers from your partner, for example.
Then simply hand over your desire or intention to the Universal Intelligence, Cosmic Consciousness, or the Great Mystery (or whatever name you fancy calling it today).
Make your intentions clear and convey to the universe the essential fact that it only has 48 hours to manifest your desires!
Another variation on this theme, also described by Pam, is about inner guidance. This is something many people use in one form or another already. In fact, it’s the kind of thing you do when you decide to “sleep on something” or “turn over a question” to your unconscious mind, confident in the expectation that an answer will be forthcoming.
In this instance, as an experiment, you can choose an issue that is troubling you, but which has a clear answer. And it doesn’t get any clearer than “yes” or “no”.
So if you can, make a yes or no your desired outcome simply by asking a question to which yes or no can be the answer.
And I know some people – maybe even YOU! – reading this will be thinking of asking for help with an issue on which you simply need guidance rather than a clear “yes” or “no”. Well, that’s fine too, but in either case make sure that the universe knows you want a clear, unequivocal answer within the next 48 hours. The Law of Attraction will provide it as requested….
…however, the extent to which you believe that the universe is going to cooperate with you directly impacts the probability of you receiving a clear answer.
In addition, the extent to which you are able to connect to the Universal Intelligence or Cosmic Consciousness will also have a direct connection with the likelihood of the universe giving you an answer.
(I know that sounds a bit like the thing Law of Attraction “experts” say to the people who are not successful at manifesting and who then criticize the concept of manifestation: “Well, if you don’t get what you want it’s because you weren’t asking correctly.”
But in truth, there is no alternative to testing the universe in this way and it’s not an arrogant thing to do – the universe isn’t prissy about such matters, and seems to be quite happy to cooperate with you by allowing the Law of Attraction to operate in your favour when you enter into these experiments in a state of clear intention and positive expectation.
So set your objective. Decide what you want an answer on, and then demand of the Law Of Attraction that it gives you a clear answer within 48 hours. And if you want to make sure you recognize the answer when it comes, tell the universe to make it clear.
