If you have tried to manifest using the Law of Attraction and failed, you are not alone. Thousands will give up quickly after making an effort that seems to produce no results. However, there is an excellent reason why the law is not working for you – you’re not doing it right.
“What do you mean, I’m not doing it right?” The Secret makes great strides in bringing the Law of Attraction to the public awareness, but many people don’t hear the most important part of the message, which really isn’t focused on until the second half of the movie. Thoughts alone do not manifest. It’s the energy and emotion generated by thoughts that manifest. The speed of manifestation is also directly related to the power of emotional energy put into the intention.
Equally important in ensuring you do not undo your intention while waiting for it to manifest, any energy put into adverse thoughts will cause problems. For instance, if you successfully send a powerful emotional intention to the universe to bring you money, and then spend the next three days worrying about the bills, you have probably sent out far more negative vibrations about money than positive. When your intent doesn’t manifest, you really can’t act surprised.
If, however, you are able to focus on your desire and feel excitement – feel what it will be like when it happens, as though it had already happened – then you send a powerful intention to the universe. Reinforce that over the next few days, and if you catch yourself unconsciously sending out negative intentions, stop immediately and reinforce your intent. Trust in the process, let go, and don’t worry about when it will manifest. The sooner you can let go the sooner it will be here and now.
Take about twenty minutes each night and find a private place. That may be your bedroom, the bath tub, a favorite spot outside, whatever. Relax for a moment, and then imagine your intent has come true. Imagine that it has happened right now, and feel what you would feel had it happened. The more excited and worked up you can get, the better. Imagine yourself driving that car, moving into that house, or holding that money. Make sure you include yourself in your imaginings, as this is absolutely key.
Pick one intention and work on it for about a week, maybe two. Be sure that during the day you take a relaxed, patient attitude about it, and don’t worry about whether or not it will work. Don’t worry about when it will manifest. If you do, then you are working against yourself. It may help to choose an initial intent that does not involve money or something you need desperately, but rather something you would really like. Too many people in bad financial situations attempt to manifest money instantly, and they are so consumed with worries over the bills that they never manage to keep a positive manifestation intent out there. After you’ve succeeded a time or two with things you aren’t in dire need of, your faith in the process will allow you to go ahead and work on something more important. This doesn’t have to be a lengthy process by any means. Manifestation can occur near instantaneously, depending on the quality of your energy and intention. We are our own worst enemies, and if something isn’t manifesting, you will always know who the culprit is.
Start a daily regimen today, and see if you don’t get better results than you have in the past. Keep in mind, strong emotion plus detachment plus patience equals manifestation. Before long, you will remember the days when you weren’t in control of your life as though they were a strange dream. Best of luck!
