Is Mark Joyner Doing a 180 on the Law of Attraction?

If you’ve been through Mark Joyner’s course, Simpleology 101: The Simple Science of Getting What You Want, you probably remember him poking a bit of fun at the Law of Attraction. (If you have not been through Simpleology, I highly recommend it). More specifically, he pokes fun at the belief some have pulled from the Law of Attraction that you can get what you want just by visualizing it. You know, the “I’ll just sit here and meditate and visualize a bag of money falling into my lap” attitude.

I’m pretty sure that, by now, most people have recognized that the Law of Attraction is about much more than visualizing and hoping and praying. But after the movie The Secret became a massive hit many critics pointed out – accurately – that The Secret focused too much on the “thinking” part of the Law of Attraction equation and not enough on the action part.

Soon after the Secret became popular I asked Mark to write a little blurb about his thoughts on the Law of Attraction. Quite honestly, I was expecting him to debunk the idea. But I discovered that he was not as much of a critic of the LoA as some assumed. Here’s part of what he said:

Hey Ed, you asked me to write a note about the Law of Attraction. Many say I’m “not a fan” of it, but that’s not really exactly right. See, it’s not that I’m not a fan of it, it’s just that I can’t personally know whether or not my thoughts actually *attract* things to me.

Without question, if we focus on certain things we’ll definitely notice more of it. One explanation may be that the Reticular Activating System is filtering all of the information around us. Who knows … Maybe it doesn’t matter? Then again, maybe it does.

You can read the rest of his note in this post: the Secret and Simpleology: Mark Joyners Surprising Thoughts.

And if you want to hear even more about Mark’s thoughts on the Law of Attraction, listen to the conversation I had with Mark Joyner on the Law of Attraction and a wide range of other topics.

But now, here comes the most intersting part of this story. Mark is getting ready to launch a new course through his Simpleology Great Teachers program. And guess what the course is on.

The Law of Attraction!

Go figure.

So has he changed his mind about the Law of Attraction? Has he done a complete 180?

Well, I’m not sure. But it looks like he’s going to be sharing his thoughts on why he’s releasing this course over the next few days. You can read about it at the Simpleology Blog. And you also have a chance to win some prizes over there as well.

And, by the way, Mark won’t be teaching the course, His good friend, Joe Vitale, author of The Attractor Factor: 5 Easy Steps for Creating Wealth (or Anything Else) From the Inside Out and The Missing Secret and one of the experts in The Secret is the creator and teacher of this new program.

I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on the Simpleology blog for the next few days as Mark reveals more about why he’s adding this Law of Attraction course to his Great Teachers series. Hope to see you over there.
