The Law of Attraction and Mindfulness are huge buzzwords today, but are they really Christian beliefs? Many Christians have actually adopted both of these beliefs into their beliefs, but do they line up with the Bible?
The answer is...no.
Actually both of these beliefs have shown to encourage people to turn away from God, not toward Him.
The Law of Attraction focuses solely on us and our thoughts and how we are the ones to manifest our future (or create our future).
However, God had a purpose and a plan for our lives before the world was even formed. He alone knows the full scope of our plans, not us!
Proverbs 19:3 tells us that "The foolishness of a man twists his way, And his heart acts in rage against the LORD." Ouch!
I don't know about you, but I don't want to rely on myself.
Well, what about mindfulness, that can't be so bad. I mean aren't they practicing mindfulness in schools now in as young as kindergartners.
They are and it's actually a pretty scary thing.
Listen to the article I found in Christian News Journal about mindfulness in adults...I can't even imagine what it does in kid's lives.
It says, "Dr. Willoughby Britton, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University Medical School, a mindfulness practitioner herself, has documented how many who have engaged in Buddhist meditation can become detached from themselves, experiencing dark psychotic hallucinations, feelings of terror, and compulsions to kill themselves."
