Yes – There is Proof that the Law of Attraction is Real!

by Ellie Walsh

Is the Law of Attraction Real?

Last week I was speaking with Hulbert Lee – From Bottom Up. He was interviewing me for his Law of Attraction Series. He was asking the questions that many ask – is the Law of Attraction real or is it a gimmick?

There are indeed skeptics who say the Law of Attraction can not be proved…

I say there absolutely is proof that the Law of Attraction is always working in our lives….

Want that proof?

Go back over your life…. Pick any situation…. and look at it clearly and honestly. I am asking you to be objective in this… which I am aware is not an easy thing to do when the situation is so closely tied to you. If you can be objective as you look within this situation – I do believe you will find the outcome of the situation was aligned with the vibration you held.

Here is a personal example from my own life:

Here is the short version – about 23 yrs ago I was a woodcarver. I attended many art & craft fairs to sell my pieces. While I did indeed sell my work and some of my pieces went across the country and the world- 1 to Japan, another to Switzerland and another to Arizona .. those are the ones I know of.

Yet my business was not making money… I was putting out more dollars than I was bringing in. There was finally a point I made the decision to stop doing woodwork and went on to do other work.

I was devastated! I remember sitting by the side of the road crying and slowly rocking back and forth… I felt abandoned – I felt defeated!

This was an extremely difficult time for me. I felt so confused…. I had already been on the personal development path for several years… I was reading a lot of information and especially Wayne Dyer – he was saying “your thoughts create your life” (he was talking about law of attraction – he just didn’t call it that)

I felt crushed! I thought…. “I so believed this was going to work for me – what went wrong?!” While I had made huge changes in my life already… and was indeed reaping positive benefits from that… I still could not understand – why this thing that I so loved did not work out for me!

There were times I thought “this spiritual / personal development stuff is a bunch of crap!” Yet… I did know I had made huge positive changes in my life….

I did not give up on making these changes in my life… though I might have gotten a little more subdued for awhile.

About 7 1/2 years ago I submerged myself into learning about the Law of Attraction specifically from Abraham Hicks. From all that I was learning… I did have situations in my life that I still didn’t quite understand… This incident about the woodcarving was a big one for me. I found myself thinking about this period of my life and the pieces of the puzzle revealed themselves to me. What happened at that time now makes perfect sense to me…

Let me tell the story how it was revealed to me…

23 yrs ago I was a woodcarver. I carved faces in driftwood… I absolutely adored what I was doing and actually kind of stumbled upon doing this.

Did I really stumble upon this?

When I look back objectively I can see I always was intrigued with woodwork and carvings… I was also always intrigued with people who were creative and who made a living selling these creative items. And I always wanted to have my own business doing something that I loved to do.

OK – Sounds like a desire/vibration to me- I guess I didn’t stumble onto this…

When I was carving… I was in my bliss. The piece of wood told me what it wanted to be… The form would appear….The hours magically melted away… Some days I carved for 12 -14 hours… I never was tired – I was always inspired.

I knew my carvings and woodcraft was good and that I could sell them and make a living doing what I loved to do….

Wait did I really know that?

When I look further into that statement I can clearly remember….

I doubted myself…. I had a feeling like I was an impostor – I was a fake! When people would refer to me as an “artist” I remember being very uncomfortable with that label.

I can specifically remember looking at some of my pieces and knowing how good they were… yet still feeling like a fake … and still feeling like they were not good enough!

“Old stories” about self worth… about my capabilities… yada…. yada… yada…

As I dug further into this story of mine….

I could see and remember how scared I was of this whole business idea! I was brought up in a family who totally believed in a job. Not that I am saying that is bad… but… whenever I expressed my desire to have a business – I was told to “get a job”. I was taught – in order to have security in life I needed that paycheck every week.

Now here I was … without a paycheck… and in an arena that was absolutely foreign to me. And.. Yes my family thought I was nuts! …. And I was very aware of their thoughts about this!

Does this sound like a good confident business person? Of course not! I was scared… I had lots of those old stories running in my head….

I doubted my abilities…. I did not rely on my inner voice… I had thoughts all over the place… one minute I would be thrilled about what I was doing… the next minute I would be terrified that this was not going to work.

As I looked at this whole scenario from this inquisitive and objective viewpoint… The Law of Attraction was working perfectly in my life! There were days I was on top of the world as I was carving and basking in these moments I loved…. And there was days I was terrified, frustrated, scared, trying to make things happen…

My vibration was a mix of up and down and all around…

And so was my life…. As noted I did sell my pieces… I was also many times highly complimented on my work…. There were days I absolutely made money doing this… And many days I had lots of fun doing this.

At some point my “old stories” about business, paychecks, and my own self worth… got bigger than my thoughts of being able to do this…. and I was not even aware of it… In essence I was calling to myself the demise of this business.

While I thought I believed that I could do what I love and make money… When I looked at all of this I realized what really was going on — I so badly Wanted to Believe that I Believed!

Is this story proof?
I believe it is…. Is it scientific? No… I guess it isn’t… but for me it is the most meaningful proof. When I saw these pieces in my life… Life finally made sense to me – it didn’t feel random anymore. I don’t have to worry about outside forces… I don’t have to be concerned with what other people feel is right or wrong… I don’t have to put my dreams aside because others say it won’t work.

When I look at this story it makes total sense that the business never made it. My vibration was keeping that from me. And it showed me how very powerful I am in my life! If I created this yucky situation… that means I can create a fabulous situation….

I just need to be aware of me… aware of my inner voice… aware of how I am feeling… aware of my own unique guidance… I can indeed march to the beat of a different drummer…. in essence I was made to march to the beat of my own personal drummer.

If you take the time to look at things that went on in your life… wanted and unwanted outcomes… If you stay objective… I do believe you will find the outcome was in line with your main vibration.

You Can Create the Life You Desire

When I work with others I hear their stories… since I am not involved in the circumstances – it is easy for me to be objective. I see how people get sidetracked from their dreams and get trapped in their “old stories”. Taking the time to learning how our brains work and how this Universal Law of Attraction works in our lives is the springboard back to your dreams!

I have created a free video series that explains how the Law of Attraction works and how to utilize it to create the life you desire.

  • Law of Attraction’s job description… how it works in your life.
  • How our brains work… how to be aware of the vibration we are sending out.
  • What are these “old stories” … where do they come from… and most important how to change them….
  • And…. Much More…

You can access these free videos here:

When you understand how you work, how your brain works and how Law of Attraction works…. You are then able to utilize that information and indeed Create the Life You Desire!

I guess Law of Attraction works for those who want it to. You just have to believe it does…

Ellie, this is a great post, I have heard you tell this story before but it was so helpful to see it taken apart the way that you did. It is an excellent reminder for me to check in every once in a while and see if I’m telling new and lovely stories with my business or bringing in a little from the old ones. Thanks so much for clearly showing how the old stories and thus vibrations can effect our lives.

I thought you might be interested in a new law of attraction film called How Thoughts Become Things. ?Here’s the trailer:? ?I think it looks pretty cool.

Hi Ellie,
Really enjoyed how you revealed a personal experience of your own to prove the LOA. I feel like personal experience is the best convincer for anyone…and if they could just think back to a time when thinks didn’t work out, and compare that to a time when things did work out…they’d be able to connect the dots.
I’m also a huge fan of the Abraham-Hicks works. Here’s a cool summary of their teachings: Jerry and Esther Hicks.
I just bookmarked this site on digg and stuff – will check back soon. Rishan

The law of attraction really works. It has changed my life for the better in so many ways that it is impossible to list them all on here. It has healed my chronic depression and brought me a warm and loving family. In fact it has had such a profound effect on my life that I have started my own blog to share with others how they too can change their lives for the better! It’s at
