It's no secret that television and radio advertisers rely heavily on Law of Attraction messages to sell memberships in organizations that promise healthier food choices, well-being and good physical conditioning, great retirement living with all the amenities, and safety and security in certain wealth investment plans. The emphasis for many of the media messages seems to be “Other smart Americans are doing this; shouldn't you?” Such advertisers, using the “like attracts like” philosophy, tell you that they have what others want. You are in the demographic the advertiser is targeting. Notice in the commercials how the actors targeting people like you are in your age range (or appear to be). They need to look as much like someone your age as they can, otherwise their message will seem to be directed at a different audience.
Experts on the Law of Attraction say giving thanks for what you have and desire to manifest is vital to successfully working with the Law of Attraction. In his groundbreaking book The Hidden Messages in Water, Dr. Masaru Emoto noted that exceptionally beautiful frozen water crystals were produced when the words love and gratitude were spoken together.

Buzzwords and phrases such as “intentional thought,” “thoughts are things,” “energy goes where attention flows,” and “believe and make it so” now have become part of the pop-culture vernacular. This might be due in part because Law of Attraction teachers such as Joe Vitale, George Pratt, Bob Proctor, Reverend Michael Beckwith, and Jack Canfield have been beamed into living rooms around the world while doing television and radio appearances in which they promoted The Secret and shared their insights and words expressing the language of the Law of Attraction.
Popular talk show hosts such as Larry King, Montel Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, and Oprah Winfrey have given plenty of airtime to the subject of the Law of Attraction. Newspaper and magazine journalists, bloggers, and e-zine writers have also done their part. Who in America doesn't want what the law promises — anything that a heart desires? Viewers are told that everything — love, prosperity, the big house, the fast car, and unbelievable wealth — can be theirs and that success in every endeavor and abundance of every kind is possible if they know the secret and work with the Law of Attraction.
But what about achieving a lasting world peace, ridding the world of scourges such as HIV/AIDS, and feeding the hungry? Those concerns don't get as much play as the desire for middle-class worldly luxuries. Still, Law of Attraction teachers say that all things are possible when people align their feelings, thoughts, and actions. The Law of Attraction responds to the more intense vibration created when people unite their minds and hearts toward a common vision and purpose and work together to achieve it.
