Why the Law of Attraction is not working for you!

Written by 

Like many people, I fell in love with the Law of Attraction when I first came across it from the movie The Secret. I remember hearing about it from The Oprah Show, and I quickly rushed out to the nearest bookstore and bought the DVD. 

As soon as I watched it I remember thinking it was everything that I always believed and hoped for, all packaged in this little gift called the Secret and The Law of Attraction. I immediately started to put to practice all that I learnt. Ask, Believe, Receive. Sounded easy enough. 

I had some initial successes, however, I struggled to manifest the bigger things. Although, I believed in the power of this law, I couldn’t help feeling discouraged and felt like I was failing at it. 

However, the truth is, no one fails at the law of attraction, just like you cannot fail law of gravity. If you walk off a building, you cannot ‘fail’ to fall down and hurt yourself.

Most people forget that the Law of Attraction is based on the Law of Vibration, which basically states that everything in the Universe (including you) ‘vibrates at a different rate of frequency.’ Your habitual thoughts influences your emotions, which in turn controls the frequency you vibrate. So it’s not your thoughts that draw things into your life, but actually your feelings and emotions. However, your thoughts play a critical role in the manifestation process because it is the influencer of your feelings. So if you’re saying hundreds of affirmations a day, yet focused and thinking about what’s wrong in your life and feeling fearful that your desire and goals not not manifest, then truly you won’t see the manifestation of your desires.

Another big reason why you may feel that the LOA is not working for you is that you’re trying to manifest from a place of lack. If you feel you do not have it, then you’ll continue to not have it.  Again, no amount of affirmations will help. You need to come from a place of abundance knowing that you have everything you need to make it happen. If you have a desire for something, then you MUST have the resources and abilities to manifest it. If you did not, then you would not have had the desire in the first place.

Feeling like something is missing only continues to perpetrate the conditions of something is missing and the very thing that you want will continue to elude you.

Another big obstacle is your subconscious beliefs and program conflicting with what you want. This comes up a lot for people especially when it comes to manifesting more money. If you’re not seeing the physical manifestation of your desires, then subconsciously, you’re resisting it. Yes, even money!

How many times have you heard ‘money is the root of all evil’, or ‘making money is hard’, and ‘people like you can’t get rich’, to even one that came up for me around how ‘being rich is unsafe’. All of these programs are outside of your conscious awareness, but undermines your efforts to have more money or anything else that you desire. So you try to use the Law of Attraction to manifest, however you’re subconscious mind is in opposition, and you’re core beliefs goes against what you want. As a result, you don’t get the physical manifestation of it.

You need to ensure that your conscious desires (thoughts) are in alignment with your subconscious beliefs and the actions that you take. Once you have alignment, then you’ll begin to manifest what you want quickly and with ease. Yes, it takes work to re-program your mind and there’s so many great resources out there including my own self-study program Mind Money Miracles that helps you program your mind for wealth and success.

Another area where people feel that the LOA is not working for them is in the time it takes for them to see their manifestation. The biggest mistake in this is that the LOA is indeed working. The manifestation of your desire is manifesting, but yet to be seen in the physical. Instead of focusing on your desires and having faith and trusting the process, you begin to get frustrated and feel disappointed. Frustration and disappointment are low-level frequencies and so you must be in the same vibrational frequency as your desires in order to receive it. Your goals and dreams were indeed coming to you, but because you are no longer where in the same vibrational frequency (remember the law of vibration), you were unable to receive what you wanted. Consequently you conclude that the LOA is not working for you, when in reality it was!

Lastly, there is also the focus on the how instead of the what. Here’s the thing to remember, your job in the creation process is to focus on what you want to manifest. Have faith and believe that you will receive what you want. Do not focus on how this will come about. The how is up to God/Universe. When you focus on the how, you then bring your limited consciousness into the equation. I love what Mike Dooley says in The Secret when he states, ‘The "hows" are the domain of the Universe. It always knows the shortest, quickest, fastest, most harmonious way between you and your dream.” 

Remember this the next time you begin to worry and start focusing on how your goals will manifest. Remain focused on the ‘what’, have faith and the ‘how’ will be shown to you!
