Magical Thinking refers to a thinking wherein a person believes in some two unrelated events having some form of link. Magical thinking also talks about the actions being a mere reflection of thoughts. So if someone has a goal of being fit, he will have a picture of himself as fit which he will see daily and he’ll attract the right food and right processes to get him fit. This kind of thought has found some truth according to researchers.
Several independent research have been carried out, and the result is that positive thoughts do attract positive outcomes and negative thoughts attract negative ones. However it’s not the same way, it’s more of a subconscious thought. For example, if one knows they have a health insurance, they’ll automatically feel more positive and will be less likely to fall ill. And if one knows they don’t have a car insurance yet, they’re likely to get into some trouble with their car. That’s how subconscious works though.
