Here law students can read all about it. And lawyers might pick up new options for their voodoo menu about what assists them in court, at the negotiation table, penning a brief, or developing new business.
What the general public labels "superstition," medical science calls the "placebo effect." Scientific research documents the power of that kind of belief system. Even when participants in experiments to reduce or wipe out X or Y symptoms were informed they were taking a placebo not a "real" medication, many got better.
We are what we believe. That's why healing processes such as mindfulness and cognitive therapy, which tame the monkey mind, are increasingly popular. Research also shows that they are effective in alleviating vexing symptoms such as non-stop angst and compulsive regret about the past.
One obstacle, though, is that there are myriad skeptics. If law students and lawyers are determined to leverage the placebo effect to achieve the outcomes they want, they have to circumspect about that. The odds are that non-believers will try to talk them out of that. Or, worse, ridicule them and transmit into the grapevine that you are a victim of voodoo.
In a support group, I confided that my psychic recommended I do so-and-so for my post-relocation disorientation. A member censured me after the meeting. That it was effective was irrelevant.
Another impediment is that the voodoo can gain the upper hand. Instead of a servant, it becomes a master. Leave the office for court without your rabbit's foot? You could unconsciously put your own worst foot forward during the hearing.
A third problem is that we can become less solution-based, relying too much on paranormal forces. A member of the Wicca religion was knew that age bias could operate against her in a job hunt. Instead of experimenting with how to overcome that prejudice, she cast a spell on those who had the power to hire her. No, that didn't work.
After the unexpected negative encounter with the support group know-it-all, I will keep my occult belief system under wraps. In several years, that might not be necessary. But now it is.
