Here’s an interesting quote from William Walker Atkinson:

“There are mentative currents, arising from the strong centered desire of some person, who forming a strong mental image, by means of visualization, creates for himself a center of desire-force, which guided by his will-power attracts to himself all that will fit into his plans.

He constitutes himself a mentative center, around his visualized idea, and constantly sends out strong mentative currents charged with the strongest, most ardent desire-force, guided, directed, and projected by his developed Will-Power. He thus sets into operation the great mental Law of Attraction, of which the early writers on Mental Science talked so much.

These mentative currents, charged with desire, spread out, and soon begin a rotary movement like a whirlpool, sweeping around and around, always drawing in toward its center persons and things tending to fit in with the plans of the center.

The original desire in the man’s mind is reproduced in kind in the minds of thousands of people by the law of mentative induction, and they all fall in with the plan, the degree, of course, depending upon the degree of positivity or negativity Mind-Power of the receptive mind, multiplied by the degree of positivity of the mentator. The great plans of the so-called “Captains of Industry” are carried out by reason of this law.

Many of these great centers of Desire-Force — these successful men, who attract to them that which they want,
and those whom they need — do not realize the nature of the force that they are using, but there are a constantly increasing number who do know it, and they are “working it for all it is worth.”

Many of these steady, cool business leaders are really deeply versed in occult laws. If the true facts of the case were to creep out, there would be the greatest sensation that the country has ever known.”
