One of the greatest keys to effortless manifestation is your ability to trust in the Universe. In fact I'd say that your success with manifesting is directly proportional to your ability to trust. But, trust doesn't come easily for some. This has been one of the major themes I've seen in those I work with, […]
This week, I've been dispelling several common misconceptions. On Monday, I discussed the common myth that it's just as easy to manifest a big desire as a small one.
Today, I have another question I'd like to answer: why is it that someone can seem to be happy, and yet still not have everything they want? And, on the other hand, someone who seems to have it all can often be rather sour?
We all know it's true. We've seen those who have very little money, and yet are kind towards all. And we know wealthy people who only care about themselves.
Of course, that's not a universal truth, but it is enough so that it deserves to be covered.
My goal for this week is to show that there's a lot more to the law of attraction than you might at first suspect. It's not just about feeling good, and outer reality reflecting that, though of course that's part of it. But, there's a lot more behind the scenes, too.
If you hope to reliably use the law of attraction in your life, then you need to ground your understanding in reality. If it doesn't apply in reality, then it's just a nice theory.
Of course, it does apply, but much of the common understanding is limited, as I've said before.
As an example, whenever I've asked on discussion forums about this issue, of why someone can seem perfectly miserable and yet get what they want, the common response is, “Well, you can't really know their true vibration.” And while that's certainly true, it still doesn't satisfactorily answer the question.
I hope to give a more satisfactory explanation in this post.
The biggest issue I see among those who use the law of attraction is a lack of faith and trust. They become concerned that the Universe isn't going to come through for them, and so the ego feels the need to take control itself, which never works.
I mentioned this a bit in Monday's post. In that post, I said that it is vitally important that you foster a connection with the Divine.
Well, this is the post where I go into much greater detail about that very process.
Many people feel lost in life, because they feel that the Universe is just bringing them one negative manifestation after another, and can't see what the Universe could possibly be trying to communicate to them.
I've had people tell me that life is cruel—that they've done all the right things and yet they are still experiencing a seemingly endless string of negative manifestations.
So, what's the point? Is the Universe trying to convey some message to you through the resistance, or are you simply vulnerable to the whims of life?
If you look at your current life, how hard do you feel you have to work to ensure the good and prevent the bad?
Are you constantly running away from what you don't want? Are you perpetually trying to manifest your biggest desires, believing they will make you happy?
This very attitude is the central reason why lasting happiness seems to be so illusive.
What if the Universal flow actually supported you in every area of life? What if it led you directly to the greatest joy imaginable? What if, when you simply surrendered to the Universal flow, you had nothing to fear?
I know that if this concept is new to you, you might be skeptical. After all, the ego believes above all else that if it doesn't remain in control, life will simply fall apart.
But, let's put that theory to the test.
