Debug my LOA!
« on: June 13, 2018, 01:35:38 AM »
Hi all, my first post in this forum :)
    I am feeling rather confused with all the LOA teachings out there, and in my quest to become a consistent, and proficient manifestor - not because of my attachment to any desires, but purely so I can feel accomplished at LOA and stop oscillating in my LOA faith. Currently, one day I might swear on my life that LOA works, and the next I am so confused, and I need this cycle gone. I'll start with two doubts, and then an example scenario where my LOA didn't work (possibly because of these doubts), complete with an inside look at my thoughts at the time, and hopefully someone here can clarify my doubts and debug my LOA/tell me what I should have done in the example scenario.

Doubt 1: I read Abraham Hicks Ask & It is Given (3/4th of it). It says that meditation is the absence of thought and hence the absense of resistance. Also the universe is just waiting for you to remove the resistance so it can give you what you want. Then, should it not mean meditation = instant manifestation? But that doesn't happen. Why?

Doubt 2: To expect or not to expect? Abraham Hicks advocates on building up your desire by keeping on adding to it until it is a rocket you can shoot off, and to have positive expectation. Others say expectation attracts more of just expecting and not having. Recent Abe videos also advocate letting go, if thinking about your desire doesn't make you feel good, but still seem to advocate positive expectation. My personal experience is expectation doesn't work. But which is it?

Example scenario :
============


My vibration : I was as much in alignment as possible for 2-3 days after watching a video on LOA. It said

"Everything imagined exists in the infinite universal consciousness.
 Everything you imagine is a possibility.
 Your belief in it makes it a probability.
Your gratitude for already having it, makes it a reality."

It seemed so simple, and in sync with the Christian teachings I heard all my life. It seemed so easy, I felt so blissfull and grateful for everything I had and couldn't contain my excitement for all the possibilities that existed for all the things I could create. I was singing and dancing with happiness, sometimes almost feeling like crying for joy.

My desire : So I was going to a shopping centre with my parents after church for our weekly shopping. We will have a jubilee celebration next week and I think, wouldn't it be nice to have a new outfit for it? I had, sometime back, designed a certain outfit in my mind and now start daydreaming exactly how it'd look and feel. I add extra details to it, and see myself wearing it and feeling really good and beautiful in it, and notice how it complements my complexion etc. I feel confident and grateful it has already manifested into reality, and will come to me soon. I also remembered as a little girl when we went to look for new bed-sheets, and mother asked what kind I want and I said I wanted a rose-patterned one. I visualised one, and just knew I'd find one like that, and when we went to the shop I found one exactly like that. This memory gave me more confidence. In the present, as I reached the shop, my heart started beating with excitement

My line of thought when I entered the shopping centre: Should I let go now? But that video said just feel gratitude, not let go? And Abe said positive expectation is good. But most success stories involve letting go. So I guess it is ok if I don't find the outfit here today, the universe can get it to me in so many other ways. But some say be specific, and being general can delay that? But some also say being general removes resistance?
Anyway, do I go to the clothing section at all? Would that be not letting go? But if I don't, would that be not acting as if? I don't know, I need hairbands anyway near the clothing section, so might as well check for the outfit. Guess I messed up my manifestation with all this doubting. No, you still know the outfit is yours, so you'll get it anyway.


What happened: As I reached the clothing section, I had great excitement and positive expectation - "Is it here that the universe will get me my outfit!? Won't it be so cool if I get it straight away??". However when I checked, there was nothing like what I had in mind, and I spiralled into frustration about too many different LOA teachings, but still had faith I will get my outfit on time for next week.
----------------------------------------------------------
So my fellow magical LOA beings, debug away! :)

Answer to Doubt 2:
   I watched some Abe videos on expectation and realise mine and their ideas of expectation were completely different. I was thinking more along the lines of heart-beating, excited anticipation of something about to happen, while they were talking about basically the calm and simple believing something would happen (Desire + Belief = Expectation). What I am saying is, I had the completely wrong idea.
   I don't want to explain and make it more confusing, so here's the name of the video that helped me: 'Abraham Hicks - Expectation is the name of the game'.

I believe I can "debug" your LoA...lol.  sort of.  Let's say I can show you exactly why your questions / doubts exist. As for fixing them? that's a bit more tricky.  I gotta be honest though, it's WAY too much to write. I have a YouTube vid that covers it ALL. If you're feeling open-minded and really want to know, watch these:

https://youtu.be/5r6-EA6u-zA - "why LoA SEEMS to fail for some."

https://youtu.be/hFwndi2dj6c - "Paradoxes in LoA."

https://youtu.be/jVIBgrOXfVw - "LoA and the Art of Letting go."

There's more on the channel but I'm pretty sure these will answer your questions / doubts. Keep in mind that these come from a practitioner of LoA, who is also a psychotherapist, and a Zen Buddhist. So, some of the stuff may sound a little outside of LoA. But it very specifically addresses your concerns.  Best wishes!

Absolutely no problem. Your concerns are ones that I myself have had. So, I can really relate! Best wishes to you!

Hi. I went through your videos yesterday, but in a rush as I had to go somewhere. Not sure it answered all of my doubts, especially since I don't even know what some of them are right now. However it did help calm me down, since I got some pretty bad news yesterday regarding a major problem in my life I have been trying to resolve using LOA. I am able to leave it to the universe/God etc instead of panicking over it.
      I like that your videos are more analysing in nature, which is helpful to confused newbies such as myself, so going to go through your previous videos as well.

Erana, this is great to hear. Thanks for being open minded enough to check them out. There is one on law of attraction and tragedy that might be helpful. There's another on using LoA when you're not feeling well. Dont know if your saw these already but they may be helpful. Again, best wishes!

Erana,

When you have a simple request and release it to the universe without even thinking about it again, something can be instant. I manifested a pallet instantly, seriously like out of thin air. I wanted it, needed it, but truly it was simple I could live with or without thought nothing more.

Situation like your outfit. I had the same vision. Went to two stores and didn't have. Third store I had never been two, seem to beckon me, it was not in the original shopping center. Almost didn't go to it. Went there, and first rack I checked my exact dress. Exact price I wanted and needed it for that night. They even had the shoes I wanted. The dress was over 4000 designer dress, was at a consignment for much less. NO one had a dress like mine that night, but many had copies of each others. I refuse to be a copy, so I forged on. Had I gave up, chose not to continue on with leadings I would never have got my exact dress. Three weeks later went to go back to the lovely boutique and it was gone, closed down.

Sometimes we need to be more precise or even make sure we are seeing accurate. I visoned how I would meet a man I feel in love with down to detail. I was sent to his city for work, my hotel right next to his condo, never knew this until I got there. Saw he would see my long hair on the balcony and we would recognize each other. Problem he was out of town that weekend all was last minute. A man recognized me on the balcony and fell in love with my long hair. Just not him. I needed to fine tune better.
