This principle can be traced way back to the beginning in Ancient Egypt with the writing of Thoth called the Hermetica, (The Emerald Tablet). We can trace this through history to present day by simply following the development of Christianity. Mosses had been raised as a prince of Egypt and being so learned all that was privilege to royalty, all the greatest wisdom and knowledge. This influenced Jewish mysticism a lot and was passed on to those that were worthy the closest disciples. Jesus was taught these great mysteries as a boy because the great magi recognized him and so he became very learned and extremely educated in the mysteries of the universe and thought. We see this today as taught by people that recognized it through Jesus but as well many others that found this truth one way or another. Great secret societies have kept the wisdom for the human race as they saw the importance of this, these came from (as I pointed out before) those worthy of the privilege of learning, so these started with royalty and then expanded to the wealthy and now is reaching the masses as many are ready for this now that were not before.
Proverbs 23:7 (Read all of Proverbs 23)
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
James Allen wrote an entire book on this called As A Man Thinketh. Here are some places you can get the book free. http://www.asamanthinketh.net/download.htm , http://www.conures.net/allen/allenhm.shtml , http://www.absolute1.net/think.html
But he is only one Florence Schovel Shinn wrote great books on using The Word to manifest, now that seems to have nothing to do with thinking, (after all who thinks of what they are saying right?) It has everything to do with the thinking she has some excellent books on the power of thought for manifesting, this could be not only for physical things but health as well.

Through our history this secret has been well written of many times over, each time telling us that we have much more control over our experience of existence than we imagine our selves as having.
A huge book called A Course In Miracles that was channeled from Jesus gives very detailed info on this very subject and can be found here free. http://www.absolute1.net/free_self-help_books_online.html

Way to go!! "I am" is the key to the whole mystery. Not "who I will become"
Because it is always now
So it has to be I am
I think the phrase "By George you’ve got it!!!!!!" applies here.
Now manifest your joy by becoming "This is what I am"

Absolutely right, thoughts are the basis of the Law of Attraction.
Whatever we give our attention to causes us to emit a vibration. And the vibration that we offer equals our asking, which equals our point of attraction.

So true! We can not only see it in our own lives, but it's easy to see in the lives of those we know as well....their thinking and the results of that.
Maybe someday they will teach this concept to little children, so that they avoid some of the stumbling blocks that our generations were subject to.

I've posted on IQ like a year ago something else that relates to the common folk wisdom of,
"If you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all."
Tweak that and you have something much more powerful:
"If you can't think of anything nice then don't think of anything at all." If I am feeling super bad and cannot think anything to give me an emotional freedom of relief, I'll literally apply this principal and stop my thinking via meditation.
