What Makes it Difficult to Use The Law of Attraction
The one undeniable aspect of the “Law of Attraction” is that you always get what you are thinking about. Knowing this is the key to making it work for you.
I have been working with the “Law of Manifesting” for the last seven years and discovering how it works. Both of these laws work the same. They are both put into action by your thoughts – thought is the trigger, the key that turns on the whole process. If you are thinking “I can’t make this work,” not working is what you must be experiencing. If you have lived your life in poverty and lack, then your inherent thoughts are going to be of poverty and lack – you will think as a poor person, and poverty will be your experience.
If you have been a chronically ill person all your life, then illness is your constant companion and illness is what you will always experience. If your thoughts are not in harmony with what you wish, you will not experience your true desires. Thoughts of violence are followed by a life of experiencing violence, and until your thoughts change, and you think of only peace, nothing is going to change.
You cannot experience abundance or being rich until you think like a rich person with abundance – then abundance and the experience of being rich follows.
You cannot experience being healthy, until all your thoughts are about good health. This does not mean that thinking about getting healthy is going to work. You will only experience thinking about getting healthy, and you will continue to experience illness. If you know yourself as being ill – that is what you will experience. If you are thinking you don’t want to be ill, you are still thinking about being ill. Concentrate on good health, not what you are already experiencing. Lie to yourself until you believe the lie. “I am in perfect health” and it is what I want to experience in my life. However, the moment your thoughts bring up your present illness – it is what you will experience.
If you have lived a live of poverty, all your thoughts are going to be about poverty – about not spending money, or not having any to spend, and not having enough. Everything you do will be determined by money, i.e., “I can’t afford to do this or that.” “I will never have this, I will always be poor,” I can’t seem to save or get ahead.
To start, hang on to your next nickel and know it as abundance. It may only be a nickel, but it is still abundance. Know that you have it and it will grow - you can see it and feel it. And if it is abundance, then you are rich. You cannot experience being a rich person if you do not think as one. Lie to yourself if you have to, know that you are rich – start to think as one who is rich and eventually you will experience being rich. If you think as a poor man trying to get rich, that is what you will experience. A rich man doesn’t count his money, he knows he has enough. A poor man is always counting his money and knows he doesn’t have enough.
A rich man does what he wants and knows his money is there, a poor man knows that it is not. A rich man does not keep his money in his wallet. He knows he has access to it. Abundance does not have to be in your wallet. If you know that it will be there when you want it – that is what you will experience. You do not have to keep a mountain of money under your mattress; all you need to know is that it will be there when you want it. You will attract to you what you need in the moment. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you can attract the money to you when you want it - you don’t have to keep records or bank accounts – no one can steal it from you?
Why are hypochondriacs always sick – because they can? Doesn’t it follow that if you can make yourself sick, you can keep yourself well? I lived with one, and I know how it works. I also healed myself of a crippling childhood disease and healed myself before anyone decided to operate on me. I was declared a miracle child and the first ever to overcome this disease without surgery. The healing came from knowing – not from knowing I was going to get better, but from knowing I already was. But the real miracle was from removing myself as a six year old from a household in turmoil, to a safe place of temporary refuge. I created an illness to protect myself and then I healed myself when it was safe to return.
If you would take the time to have a look at your present situation, the people, and circumstances of how you live, and interact with others – you will find your story. You cannot run or hide from yourself. Everything you are experiencing now, you have created. They are manifestations of your own thoughts about yourself, others and your environment.
You may say, “I didn’t want this or that,” but by thinking that you didn’t want it you have given energy to it and created it. By thinking, I don’t want to be poor, I don’t want to be sick, I don’t want this relationship – you are creating it, because you are thinking about it and why you don’t want it. You could be spending your time thinking about what you do want – that is where you need to focus your thoughts and your energy in order to create what you desire.
More than likely most of you will not manifest what you truly want to experience, because you don’t really know what you do want – few of us do. You will not be able to manifest it because you are not clear about what you want. You may say I want $5,000,000, and I will be happy. Think about this – what is it that you really want, happiness or $5,000,000. You may get the five million but will you be happy? You may get terminal cancer just before you cash the cheque. Your thoughts about happiness will not manifest, because you are focused on the money and not a total holistic picture of how you are or what you want.
For most of us, our past will interfere with how we manifest our future. We have bought into the old ideas given us by our parents and society, and we believe them. You may have decades of old habits and believes that you will have to overcome before you can effectively manifest what you desire. The first step comes from a desire to change your thinking, to get out of the box. You may have to take small steps, lie to yourself for awhile, and do affirmations – whatever it takes to change your thought process.
When you begin to think as a rich person, you will experience wealth. When you begin to think as one who is whole you will begin to experience good health. When you begin to think happy, you will experience happiness. It is the “law of attraction” and the “law of expectation,” that creates. It is your thoughts which trigger them. The universe is impartial and non-judgmental; it cannot turn you down for any reason. When you test the law of gravity and jump off a 20 story building; the law works for you whether you are good or bad, worthy or unworthy. And so do all natural laws.
If what you are experiencing in your life has given you “all” that you desire, then good for you. I would ask you why you are reading this. It was your thought which brought you to this article. You are missing something, and if you are denying it at this moment, you will have a pretty good idea why your life is the way it is now, and why the law of attraction haven’t worked fully for you.
What makes using the law of attraction difficult is you own thoughts about why it cannot work.
