Law of Attraction Classics: Dynamic Thought – The Most Potent Force We Know – H.T.Hamblin
Ever wondered if “Thoughts are Things”, what this has to do with the Law of Attraction? Henry Thomas Hamblin figured this all out and told about it in his book “Dynamic Thought”. He also tells how hypnotism and other occult mental work actually work against this Law – by attracting to yourself things you actually don’t want. You can learn through this book excerpt some of the the precise explanations and instructional examples of how to apply the Law of Attraction effectively in your own life.

TO the ordinary “man in the street” a thought is an “airy nothing “–a mere flash in the consciousness–it comes, it goes, and there is an end to it. To the student of Mind however, thought is known to be the power that is greater than any other power–a force that controls all other forces. An American writer speaking of Universal Mind says:
“It thinks, and Suns spring into shape; It wills, and Worlds disintegrate; It loves and Souls are born.”
It will thus be seen that thought is the origin of the visible Universe. All that we see around us is the result of thought. We may even go further, and say that all the invisible forces, which keep the wonderful machinery of the Universe working perfectly and smoothly, are but the thought-energies of the same Universal Mind.
As in the macrocosm so is it in the microcosm; the subliminal mind of man is the same in essence as the Universal Mind of the Universe; the difference is not one of kind but of degree.
In our world, our circumstances, our life, our bodies, we stand supreme, or rather we have within us the power, which properly directed, can make us supreme. This power is “Thought.” Thought is so subtle, so elusive, that it has by the majority of men, been considered impossible of control, but the greatest philosophers, seers and leaders in the World’s history have known differently.
All that they achieved, they accomplished through the power of thought; and this was possible because they had learned the art of thought control.
“What man has done, man can do.” This was never so true as it is today, because the science of Mind is now being spread abroad, and that it is possible for quite ordinary people to learn how to control their thoughts, is now known to be a scientific possibility.
Dr. Abrams in his epoch-making book entitled “New Concepts in Diagnosis and Treatment; The Practical Application of the Electrotonic Theory in the Interpretation and Treatment of Disease,” describes how he has discovered the energy of thought and measured it by means of an instrument called the Bio-dynamometer.
With one subject in a room with closed doors, and another subject, in another room, forty or more feet away, it was found that one subject could affect the other by a definite exercise of thought. Anger and emotion yielded an energy which produced an effect at a distance of eighty feet.
Dr. Abrams also found that there arts three great energy centers in the human body, the right and left side of the brain, called by him the right and left psychomotor areas; and the finger tips. When the brain is actively engaged in thought there is an increase in the discharge of energy from the psychomotor areas, and also from the finger tips.
It was also found that ordinary people discharged energy from one psychomotor area only, but a great thinker discharged energy from both. The amount of energy discharged in this way can be gauged by the fact that Edward Markham, the poet, discharged energy from his left psychomotor area alone equal to a resistance of sixty ohms.
As the energy discharged from a giant magnet with a lifting capacity of 400 lbs. to the square inch is only thirty-two ohms, we can form some idea of the immense power of thought which man possesses.
The flow of energy from the finger tips is also suggestive. In all ages the laying on of hands has been recognized as a healing act, now it is proved by scientific means to have been simply the power or energy of thought.
You will therefore see that “thought” so far from being “an airy nothing” or a mere flash in the consciousness is a wonderful and potent force, the most wonderful and potent force of which we know.
