3 Myths About Law of Attraction


Deliberate creation is the practice of leveraging law of attraction for a specific outcome. It is both spirituality and science. However, like most things spirituality and many things science, it is nuanced and can seem a lot more confusing than it really is. I believe the system is rigged in our favor. It's not intended to be hard. However, there are some commonly held beliefs about deliberate creation that tend to make it harder than it needs to be.

We could probably keep it really simple by saying deliberate creation can be quantified by consistency of focus. However, understanding the myths can make it easier to leverage your power and wave that magic wand.

Big Myth #1 - The Universe wants things for you.

Here's the truth: The Universe doesn't want anything for you. The Universe isn't steering you anywhere. The Universe doesn't have a plan.

In LOA land there is a tendency to use the word "Universe" like Christians would use the word, God. Every time I hear the words, "I'm going to ask the Universe for...." I cringe.

The Universe we talk about isn't really a Universe at all. It's a multiverse of unlimited already created possibilities. It is a blank slate, and it doesn't have a personality or an opinion.

You are the creator. Your focus your power. You give the instructions. You create the miracles. How that unfolds is not always as predictable as we'd like. However, make no mistake, you are the owner-operator of your reality. It's not some mystical force outside of you.

Big Myth #2 - You have to believe it to see it.

Here's the truth: Belief is only one indicator of focus, and it's not required.

If we could only ever create things we think are possible, we'd be setting the bar remarkably low. History and personal experience indeed prove that theory isn't true. We've all attracted or created things we didn't fully believe we could.

Your focus is the magic potion that moves the stuff in the unseen into physical reality. Trying to manhandle belief is an unnecessarily heavy lift. That's where imagination comes in. "Pre-tending" doesn't require belief. All creation is a product of imagination.

If you've focused long enough to believe - fantastic.
If you're focusing and it still feels like a fantasy - excellent.
Keep fantasizing, you're on the right track.

Big Myth #3 - Emotions are the key to alignment

Here's the truth: emotions are a product of alignment and managing them is preferable, but optional.

I once heard a quote, "Emotions are like children. You don't want to let them drive the car, but you also don't want to lock them in the trunk." That is the solid gold truth.

Emotions indicate the frequency at which you are emitting a signal into the multiverse. Nothing more. Nothing less. Abraham referred to emotions as the guidance system. You can't monitor every thought. So, you have an emotional guidance system to help you navigate the territory of your thoughts. It's your thoughts that matter.

A shift in your emotions may be the first and most important sign of alignment. All we really ever want is to feel better anyway. However, even when it feels like we can't get our emotions in line, it is still focus that makes the difference.

You can manifest something when you don't feel great as long as your instructions into the field remain clear. Emotions are simply a compass point. They don't in and of themselves make or break a manifestation. If you stay focused long enough your emotions will follow. Letting them lead can be like putting a child behind the wheel. Don't do that.
