I am Ra, The Law of One, Law of Attraction
Simply put, the Law of One, Law of Attraction is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. It is believed that regardless of age, nationality or religious belief, we are all susceptible to the laws which govern the Universe, including the Law of Attraction. It is the Law of Attraction which uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materialize them into reality. In basic terms, all thoughts turn into things eventually. If you focus on negative doom and gloom you will remain under that cloud. If you focus on positive thoughts and have goals that you aim to achieve you will find a way to achieve them with massive action.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: This is why the universe is such an infinitely beautiful place. The Law of Attraction dictates that whatever can be imagined and held in the mind’s eye is achievable if you take action on a plan to get to where you want to be.
The Law of One, Law of Attraction is captured within “The re-listening project will guide you. I had put lawofone.info online with the material from the first four books of The Law of One“
I am Ra. Law of One, Law of Attraction, though beyond the limitations of name, as you call vibratory sound complexes, may be approximated by stating that all things are one, that there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only identity. All is one, and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.” (from session 4)
The Law of One books were channelled by L/L Research (Carla Rueckert, Don Elkins, and Jim McCarty) between 1981 and 1984. The books (there are five) can be purchased from L/L Research’s or freely downloaded from their library. This site includes all of the questions and answers from the books, as well as about 60 more questions and answers that were discovered in the Relistening Project.

Results of the Law of One Re-listening Project
Law of One, Law of Attraction: The relistening project started in the fall of 2004. I had put lawofone.info online with the material from the first four books of The Law of One, and I was interested in adding the material from Book V, the questions and answers of which I wanted to integrate into each session in the order in which they occurred. It turned out that the only way to find out where that material belonged was to listen to copies of the original tapes. Once I started listening, I realized that there was information that had never been published before, and I decided that it would be worth editing the transcripts to try to make them as accurate as possible.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: I listened to sessions 1–98 in much the way that Jim McCarty, the original scribe, had: by playing tapes on a small portable tape recorder. In 2006, Gary Bean at L/L Research created digital copies of the original tapes, and in 2007 and 2008 Terry Hsu carefully listened to mp3s of sessions 75–106. Terry eventually decided that, since English is not his native language, he was not the best person for the job, but his infectious enthusiasm carried me through many a dry spell in my relistening efforts.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: Eventually, I realized that the digital copies were better than the cassette copies I had been using, so I switched to them for sessions 99–106. In 2010, I asked L/L if they could arrange for volunteers to verify the transcripts I had created, and Gary recruited Eric Lyman for the job. He began with the later sessions and worked his way back to session 31. Time constraints made it impossible for Eric to continue, but we were quite fortunate, because Michelle Holt picked up the baton, verified sessions 1–30, and then worked her way through the later sessions, too.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: I wanted to create as accurate a transcription as possible, but I did not want to lose the readability of the original books. My solution has been to create three versions, which I call Original, Relistened, and Lightly Edited. It is possible to browse or search this site using any of the three; the “Lightly Edited” is the default. For more information about the different versions and a way to identify the differences between them, please see the versions page.

Dropped lines restored
One of the most interesting discoveries was that segments of a number of answers were dropped in publication, many possibly due to typesetting errors. In some cases, they clarified what had been puzzling answers from Ra. Here is a list:
Complete list of restored lines:

Less significant changes
There were many tweaks to Ra’s answers and many, many changes to Don’s questions. A few examples are shown below (original version first). To see all the changes, browse through the original/edited difference pages. To see only the changes to Ra’s answers, use the answers only pages.

Unediting questions sometimes made Ra’s answers clearer. Example:
Questioner: The crown of three stars, we are guessing, would represent the balancing of the mind, body, and spirit. Is this in any way correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This device is astrological in origin and the interpretation given somewhat confusing.
Sometimes answers became less clear, for example:

There are a few answers where Ra may have misspoken. It’s hard to know for sure because Don didn’t follow up on these; however, they were changed in the originally published books. Previously published versions shown first; actual transcripts second.

Answers that could be edited but aren’t currently
These answers were edited in the books published by L/L Research. However, they are shown in the “Edited” and “Relistened” versions as they were recorded in the audio:
- 1.9 …in which case you have done you/they little or no good.

- 55.14 The Life Force Of The Great Pyramid → The Life Force in the Great Pyramid
- Session 26. In Book I, session 26 included a number of questions that were actually from session 53. Those questions have been removed from the versions of session 26 shown at this site. Also, a question about sexual energy transfer that was actually asked during this session, 26.38, was not published until Book II (originally published as 31.1).
- Session 50. In Book II, session 50 was published somewhat out of order. (The poker analogy was not really at the end of the session.) It is shown in the order in which it was recorded in the the “Edited” and “Relistened” versions.
- Session 75 was also originally published out of order and has also been restored.
- There were four sessions in which Don asked Ra to cause Carla’s body to cough: 24, 26, 28, 97 (97 was already marked as such).
- In the original books, individual’s names were shown as “(name).” For the most part we have continued to leave names out, except where the individuals mentioned gave permission or have since passed away. Jim and Carla have given permission to use their names and Don’s wherever they occurred, and we have also included the names of two well-known UFO contactees that Ra was asked about: Betty Andreasson and Billy Meier.
- Optional notes. The originally published books contained footnotes with definitions of unusual words, etc. Those have been included in all the versions but hidden by default. To see them, click “See notes.”
- Corrections. When Ra or Don noticed that incorrect information had been given, they corrected that information. In the originally published books, the incorrect questions or answers were edited. In the “Edited” and “Relistened” versions, the incorrect information is shown as recorded, but the correct information is noted below it.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: This project has deepened and enriched the already profound respect I had for the individuals involved and for those of Ra. I was previously aware that Don, Carla, and Jim had made significant sacrifices in order to put themselves in a position to channel Ra. Listening to the sessions made real to me that the sacrifices were ongoing and the commitment on all parts quite unequivocal. It increased my respect for all involved:
- for Carla, because the toll it took on her was quite apparent in the sound of her voice when she returned to her body after each session, and because of her incredible accuracy as a channel in session one, which was not in trance but reads very nearly the same as the other sessions, when she was;
- for Don because of his ability to stay tuned into Ra’s lengthy and uninflected answers and follow up with intelligent and focused questions, and for the love and concern for Carla and respect and friendship for Jim that he showed throughout the sessions;
- for Jim for the quiet power that he demonstrated during the times it was necessary to re-walk the Circle of One and in flipping the tapes (really!) and for the accuracy of his original transcriptions;
- for Ra — their faithfulness in answering, as precisely and completely as possible whatever was asked of them, even though it was apparent, from the tone of voice they sometimes used, for example in their answers to questions about the archetypical mind, that they did actually have significant preferences as to the type of information they wanted to share.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: Some of the most poignant moments in the sessions occur at the end of each session. After Ra had given their final statement, Don would call Carla back to her body by quietly and persistently saying his nickname for her, “Alrac” (Carla backwards). “Alrac…” “Alrac…” “Alrac…” Sometimes it took quite a while before Carla replied. “Yeah?” she’d say, and then Don would ask, “How do you feel?” Often the audio ended at that point, but sometimes you’d hear Carla’s response: “OK,” or “Tired,” or “Mmmph.” Often her voice sounded incredibly weary.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: I had always wondered how Don could speak with no false starts. In fact, he did false start, but not too often. Sometimes, Ra picked up on parts of his questions that were later edited out. Example: 88.17 (“condense the archetypes”). Don was remarkably good at telling when Ra was done with an answer, but occasionally they would start talking at the same time. Other times Ra would wait patiently until Don realized that he had only made a statement, not asked a question, and appended “Is that correct?” or something similar to his statement. Several times it’s possible to hear Don chuckling or reacting, such as after Ra answered a complicated question in one word (“No.”) (65.18)
In general, there was very little background noise, the amazing exception being session 45, when water truckers attempted to make a delivery. Other exceptions: a phone ringing in session 1; Jim unloading groceries in session 1, occasional cat purrs and meows.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: Ra spoke q u i t e s l o w l y and in a mostly monotone voice except when they discussed the archetypes, when their enthusiasm came through. In the first session, as mentioned above, Carla was not in trance, and there her intonations sound like we expect ”normal” spoken conversation to sound. Some of the other sessions are especially monotone; it seems to have to do with how deeply in trance Carla was. The first session is the only time you hear the opening “I am Ra,” because in all other sessions Don and Jim waited until Ra began speaking before they began recording.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: After the first session, L/L recorded each session on three cassettes, which they staggered so as not to lose any information. Sessions 1–17 are fairly faint, especially the questions, but the quality of the rest of the recordings is relatively good. In each session, after about 45 minutes, one can hear the sound of a cassette tape stopping and being flipped and restarted. Unfortunately, L/L only saved one tape from each session, meaning that the material at the tape flips cannot be verified. Also unfortunately, the back side of session one was used to record a different meditation and thereby lost.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: In conclusion, I think that it’s been worth it. The original purpose was to reintegrate the Book V material into each session, and I think that reading the sessions with Book V material restored does indeed add to the experience. In many ways, the Book V material is the heart of the Ra contact, and it’s nice to be able to read it in context. In addition, the new material, not previously published anywhere, is interesting to read and in some cases quite valuable. Finally, the model of dedicated service exemplified in the sessions by Carla, Don, Jim, and Ra has been an inspiration to me personally.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: Many thanks to Don Elkins, for his lifelong quest to learn, to understand, and to pursue his learning wherever it took him. The Ra contact was the culmination of a life of seeking. Thanks to Carla Rueckert, fearless channel, who put her life and her soul’s freedom on the line to bring this information through the veil, and to Jim McCarty, the engine who made it all go. And thanks to Ra for their light, their precision and power with words, and their faith that we humans are worth the investment.
Much appreciation, also, to Gary Bean, admin at L/L Research, who provided the initial batch of tapes to get this project started and who has responded to my every request with humor and grace; to Terry Hsu of Taipei, Taiwan, who provided unflagging encouragement (and occasional well-timed reminders) that greatly helped me to renew and maintain my commitment to this project; to Eric Lyman, who faithfully and persistently re-relistened to sessions 31–106, catching many discrepancies between my transcripts and the actual recordings; and to Michelle Holt, who has taken over the re-relistening with great gusto and diligence. I could not have completed this project without any of them.
Law of One, Law of Attraction: Finally, all thanks to my beloved wife, Jennifer, and children, Elijah and Elise, who have listened, with good humor and sometimes even with interest, to many more quotes from Ra than any wife or children should ever have to.
