    Summary of 7 key ideas

    Key idea 1 of 7

    According to the Law of Attraction, your thoughts dictate your reality.

    When the author was a student, his family had very little money. So when friends asked him to join them on their vacation, he knew he couldn’t afford it. But then, just a few weeks later, a check came in the mail for £500 (about $650) – almost exactly the amount the author needed. 

    What could have possibly happened? The author believes it was all thanks to something called the Law of Attraction. The idea goes that if you believe something good will happen, you make it more likely that it will happen.

    The key message here is: According to the Law of Attraction, your thoughts dictate your reality. 

    The opposite is also true: if you dwell on negative thoughts and expect the worst, then you increase the likelihood that this will come true instead. In the author’s case, he spent weeks thinking he would be able to afford the vacation, and the universe responded by making it so. 

    But even though he had some success using the Law of Attraction, the author found it didn’t always deliver. He realized that even though he was thinking positively, his thoughts were often accompanied by negative feelings. And this combination made him feel confused and inauthentic – not a great recipe for success. 

    To combat this problem, he came up with his own law: the Law of Vibration. According to the Law of Vibration, when you radiate joyful, positive energy, your reality becomes positively charged, too – and you attract joyful, positive things. 

    This theory might sound far-fetched, but it’s based in real science. Consider that everything in the universe, including our minds, is made up of atoms that vibrate. It follows, then, that everything else, including our thoughts and emotions, must also vibrate. The author believes that joyful, loving emotions have a high vibrational frequency, whereas angry, depressed emotions vibrate at a low frequency. 

    It’s through tapping into these vibrations that you can start to influence the world around you. When an atom vibrates, the atoms around it start vibrating at the same frequency. So if your emotions vibrate higher, then your reality will start to vibrate higher, too. The result? Your external world becomes more loving and joyful.

    Great app. Good selection of book summaries you can read or listen to while commuting. Instead of scrolling through your social media news feed, this is a much better way to spend your spare time in my opinion.
