What to do with your life beyond self help and personal development

Use of switch-words and the Law of Attraction

Posted by Thrivelearning on March 16, 2007

James T. Mangan researched and found these “switchwords” which act as short-cuts to manifesting. They are named like the action of throwing a switch to turn on a light, or an engine. Switchwords open up flows in manifesting.

At the bottom of this post is as complete a list as I’ve found so far (until I compare it to the book).

There are two methods of utilizing these switchwords. One is the simple means told through Wattles, Vitale, King, and others:

  1. Get the full concept of what you want, including all the feelings of having received it.
  2. Utter the switchword, silently or aloud.
  3. Turn the whole thing over to the universe to bring to you – release.

The other is to chant it as a mantra, either as in a meditative/alpha state or while doing some action which is aligned to that switchword (or vice-versa). One person improved her luck while chanting “count” as she worked the slot-machines.

In a later post, I’ll break down how these things work – the mechanics of them and how to “roll your own” switchwords. These actually give an insight into why Napoleon Hill’s “BURNING DESIRE” has worked for the thousands who have read his book and gotten rich from it.

One can get the ebook and paperback of the same name, but I’ve ordered the original book to get to the source of it.

What I am looking for is James T. Mangan’s system from his 1973 book, THE SECRET OF PERFECT LIVING.

A review of switchwords from the linked forum above:

“What is unfortunate is that it was written in the sensationalist style of the late 1960’s and 1970’s, and the claims for it were not taken seriously by professional mind-exploration scientists, because of it. But it is a very accurate window into the way the mind works, even though it has not been looked into seriously by acedemics and most scientists. Had it gained credibility with these professionals, psychiatry and psychology would probably be far more advanced and benificial to the public today.

But such is often the way of the world today. Excellent research is ignored because it is not ‘packaged’ properly to suit the tastes and prejudices of the people who mold public opinion. So often it never really reaches the public on a wide scale of application.”

As I get this book from Amazon and digest it, you can count on a more full and detailed rendition of it.

For now, I’m publishing this list (from Powerful Intentions site) for your and my use. Here is as full a list as I have found:
