Most oppressed/depressed/chronically sick people can't fathom this type of theory of everything working out, sometimes it can only be more discouraging.
It could be argued that these unfortunate oppressed/depressed/chronically sick people are also demonstrating the law of attraction. In other words, their lives and daily experience reflect their mental and emotional states.

If we consider the law of attraction as simply a neutral creative force then how that force manifests is determined by our mental and emotional filters.

We tend to focus on using the law of attraction to manifest the things we want in our lives, whether it be a new job, a new car, a new partner. If someone is struggling with life and has limited resources it can seem impossible to change things to create the life they want. But maybe they need to consider that the law of attraction is already happening in their lives, and if they do not change then their lives will not change.

Peace

You've got a good point iamthat. People are always trying to "play" the LOA to get what they want, not realizing that, actually, the LOA is "playing" them. That's what it does. You don't use the LOA, it uses you. To get a different game you need to change you.

Yes. Change what you believe about life, about the acts of the Universe, and about yourself. Everything you experience in your life is the reflection of your idea about it.

I have deep core beliefs - you couldn't change them with a lion in a den with me.
They are just 'there'. Not 'ideas', things I know to be absolutely true.
(Not to be enigmatic - simple things - like God, my Creator Father, wants the best for me always...things like that. :)
I smile with knowing...it is a sort of carefree feeling ...like on a towel on the beach, just easy, flowing, soaking in this knowledge. Ahhh.
And so far so good!!!

Now, this means even when 'bad looking' things happen.
Got a bit off topic...but was agreeing with you.

I think we all have beliefs like that Miss H - especially here on SF. Things we just know. And they're certainly hard to change, although I don't think I've ever been tempted to do so. Typically they don't cause me pain or hardship. Quite the opposite actually. They're often a source of joy. I don't "fix" stuff like that. However if I did find one that was causing me hardship I'd give it a go. I don't like pain and suffering, so I'd either let it go somehow or die trying. I walk my path, and I don't want to be carrying stuff that isn't joyous and freeing.

So yeah - I agree with you (and Sir Neil). "Fix" what doesn't work, but keep what works, and let the universe bring you whatever it wants to. Seems to work fine. Great in fact.

No doubt this stems from a fear base mentality that we have today of living in lack, poverty mindset, and fear.

So what are some of your ways to work on this, and change your mindset around. To start to really manifest your dreams and desires.

The problem with LoA is that everything you are as a totality of life experience up to this moment is what you receive. So what constitutes you in this moment?
You can’t just dismiss what you are in any shape or form you are. So you’ll attract everything you are even if you try and manifest one or two things.

If your full of anger and you want to manifest money, money can reach you but until your anger is reached by you you’ll be holding angry money. What is that going manifest for you?

You are the universe reflecting as you see you. So in this way, you have to do the work and honour that in you along with acknowledging, letting go of everything your not. If you observe how nature is, in all ways of being, you too can live through these without holding onto stuff readying for change. Can you block yourself in this way? I think you can nurture and keep alive stuff your used to holding onto. So I guess you can.

If you get to the core of yourself and open up clear, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see more in operation than you’ve seen previously.

When you want something, you can find it but there are steps to finding it. Sometimes you don’t find it the way you thought, sometimes you find it in a completely different way. The universe in us is potential unbounded.

But..

As they say.

Be careful of what you wish for.

Yep, I like this as a thought, and a potential affirmation as well. We tend to believe that life is against us or has it in for us, but what if we believed the opposite? Everything would start to flow so much better.

Being positive and loving does the trick, no hatred/negativity whatsoever.
