It seems to me the law of attraction only works for affluent Westerners. Joe Vitale seems destined to attract many sums of $119.95
And yet ....
The people of Darfour can't seem to attract their way out of their troubles and in 2004 the peoples of Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and Myanmar managed to attract themselves a Tsunami. The children in Zimbabwe can't seem to attract themselves any schools and in Bangladesh they've just attracted themselves a typhoon.
Damn that law of attraction.

It’s a LAW - not a feel-good principle or some kind of new-age voodoo flake-out.

Oh, and there I was thinking it's a feel-good principle or some kind of new-age flake-out.
But it says right there it isn't!
Silly me!

By the way, love your work, keep it up!

"But you probably never spilled a cup of coffee and said, 'Damn that Law of Gravity!'"

Haha, that's pretty funny. My favorite outburst of impotent rage after I've done something clumsy is, "god damn inconvenient physics!!!"

Aside from that I usually just blame Russell Crowe ...

I don't know about that. I spent a fair amount of money and time in college learning to use a law of gravity that I knew was incorrect on day one (Newton's) and it work take me at least a year and a lot more money to get a firm grasp on the more accurate law of gravity known as Einstein's theory of general relativity.

Joe Vitale =Mr Fire ,,,is he telling us he’s the devil? after enduring 6 months of the slow demise of my spouse who signed up for Mr Fire’s Miracles Coaching program at a hefty price, I’ve come to the obvious conclusion that he is nothing but evil at it’s purest form.

His “Miracles Coaching Program” is outsourced to a thinktank(HA), as is his Ho opononono BS program. The thinktank has strong ties to the Landmark education group (imagine that!).

I don’t see an end insight for my spouse, who idolizes Mr Fire (hahaha), but I clearly see the end of our relationship. Sad but true the miracle worked its black-magic

I think I can safely speak for the majority here when I say how sorry I am that you've been forced to endure such painful decisions and loss because of the thoughtless actions of dishonest charlatans like Vitale. It's sad to see someone give so freely and fully into harmful woo that they would risk losing their life and marriage rather than doubt the guru.

I wish you the best of luck in this difficult time, and (if I may be so bold to speak in general) the skeptical community is here to help you. I haven't, but I know others have had experiences similar to yours and may be able to offer some advice or support. Hitting the forums at the James Randi Educational Foundation might be a good place to start looking if you need it.

Again, best of luck.
