The concept has its foundations in several philosophical and also religious practices, from Hermeticism as well as Transcendentalism to Hinduism, as well as has been increased on by several Twentieth Century philosophers such as Napolean Hillside (Assume and also Grow Rich, 1937) and Louise Hay (You Can Heal Your Life, 1984).
