"Kids & Law Of Attraction"


Let's get controversial! :O) Law Of Attraction & kids--specifically, some of that crazy kids' folklore, which is sometimes outright brutal!

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: TV's so violent, so we'll get violent kids. I can't say I've found that to be universally true, but shouldn't the Law Of Attraction make it so? And, what about folklore that's not-so-gentle?

Here's my . . . dare I say "favorite" example?

Deck the halls with gasoline
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Light a match and watch it gleam
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Watch the teacher burn to ashes
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
Aren't you glad you play with matches?
Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

I got this rendition from my favorite book on the subject: AMERICAN CHILDREN'S FOLKLORE by Simon J. Bronner.

Now, anyone who thinks that kids who sing this song will grow up to by pyromaniacs is off her rocker! But, how can this be?

Because, the Law Of Attraction isn't about the words we use or even the images we imagine. It's about the vibrations we ultimately emit. And, the evidence of those vibrations is feelings--emotions. The word "gleam" pretty much says it all. This is a song that produces laughter and gleaming smiles. It produces relief in kids who've been told to hold their emotions in, once too many a time.

The moral of this lesson is: Chill out! Get a sense of humor. And, stop worrying that the Law Of Attraction is out to get you. It's out to help you.

That's why laughter is the best medicine. Pretty pictures definitely help, and I wouldn't recommend too many that involve teachers turning crispy-critter. But, it's the overall emotion that matters.

Sunshine & Blessings,


  1. I agree 100%. Since I got into LOA I have come to understand why spells/magick work for some people and not for others. It's not just about having faith, it's also about the energy put into it, which comes from feelings/emotions (vibes).


  2. Hi, Light!

    Thanks, for bringing another perspective to this.

    I remember this renegade scientist and High Ceremonial Magician by name of Dr Al Manning, who wrote a book called MAD MAVERICK MAGIC.

    His point of view was that spells and ceremonial magic should really be seen as parties with one's self/guides/nature/whatever. You know, you're enjoying some birthday/unbirthday cake and sharing a little something to drink and discussing what you're grateful for, and maybe you sing a song.

    Sounds like a party--right? Making it somber doesn't generally help. Make it festive! Make WHATEVER YOU DO festive!

    He ended up saying his magic worked like science! Probably, because you had such a fun time with it, that the results became secondary (which means they happened!).

    Sunshine & Blessings,
