Modern spiritual seekers have called the Law of Attraction a recently discovered ancient secret teaching. Indeed, the law is ancient in its origins. Whether or not it was ever lost or purposefully kept secret is arguable. What is true is that through the centuries, various spiritual teachers, philosophers, and others have mentioned or discussed the Law of Attraction, although they used various other names in their teachings and writings. Today, renewed interest in the subject has catapulted the ages-old concept into mainstream popular culture while simultaneously placing it under a lens of scrutiny.
