In this 4 Part series, I’m answering the challenge set by Winston Wu, a fellow blogger, who posed some interesting questions about LOA in his post Debunking the Law of Attraction. In Part 1, I set the stage and explained that I’m in no way trying to convince anyone of anything, but am simply providing clarity to those who want it and resonate with this information. In Parts 2&3, I answered questions 1-10. Today, I’m going to tackle the final 5 questions.
11. If we manifest what we fear, then how come many of our fears don’t come to pass and turn out to be just due to an overactive imagination?
I believe I answered this fully in my answer to Question 8.
12. How come when the year 2000 came, many feared that a Y2K bug might wreak havoc in society by causing many crucial computer systems to shut down, yet the scare turned out to be nothing? How come their collective fears didn’t manifest?
The feared scenario of Y2K would’ve affected not just those who were afraid of it, but everyone in the civilized world. Therefore, whatever happened had to be a match to the predominant vibration of all those who would be affected. The number of people who vibrated safety and sanity greatly outnumbered those who were panicking. Many of those who were taking precautions weren’t really convinced that anything was actually going to happen, but were simply being safe, just in case (in which case, they would’ve felt better, aligning themselves with a positive outcome). The predominant vibration of this world is MUCH higher than we often give it credit for. Just because the media blows the negatives WAY out of proportion, doesn’t mean that this is an accurate representation of what everyone is thinking and focusing on.
Everyone who experiences an event, must be a match to what their experience of that event turns out to be. That means, that the bigger the event, the more people have to line up with some aspect of it. Now, all events have many different aspects, so they can satisfy a myriad of different vibrations (some people can experience an event as horrifying, while others can experience the same event as empowering). In the case of Y2K, A LOT of people would’ve had to match up with at least the inconvenience if not downright chaos of losing all computer systems. As a collective whole, we are nowhere near that dark of a place.
13. Do you really believe that if you drank cyanide or muriatic acid and believed 100 percent that it was just plain water, that it wouldn’t harm you? I hope not!
Again, I believe that it is theoretically possible for someone to do that. But it would take tremendous focus, possibly every day for years (full answer to this concept in my answer to Question 1). And how would you test it? Why would someone who is living fully consciously and so in touch with who they are that they could surpass our global beliefs even want to try that? At that level of consciousness, parlor tricks cease to be interesting. I like to believe that anyone who has reached that level of enlightenment would use that kind of focus for purposes other than drinking cyanide. However, theoretically? Yes. I believe it’s absolutely possible to be completely unaffected by what we ingest. We’re just not quite there yet.
14. Since a lot of you folks also believe that how you see yourself and what you think you are will be how others see you and what others think you are, then do you really believe that if you walked into the Pentagon and believed 100 percent that you were the President of the United States, that everyone there would think that you are The President? And what if I believed that I was Superman or Batman? Would everyone believe it too?
I love this question and the one below this one! If someone truly believed that they were Batman, would they become Batman? No. And Yes. Let me explain.
Again, and I can’t stress this enough, we create with our vibration, not just our mere thoughts. And when that vibration manifests, it does so in the way that’s easiest for us to understand and believe. Now, if you were alone in this reality, you could become President today. However, because we are not alone, and because we want to have experiences with other people, the manifestations we share with them have to match all of our vibrations. These vibrations don’t have to be exactly the same, each event has the ability to match up with different experiences of it, but our co-creations do have to follow our collective “rules”, so to speak.
The President of the United States is a position inhabited by one person, but the position is a co-creation by many, many people. It affects and is affected by the masses, even those beyond the borders of the U.S. Now, while you could believe 100% that you are the President, you could not instantly change the manifestation of all of those people. However, if you continued to believe it and line up with it, then you would manifest a situation that mirrored the essence of that belief back to you. The essence may be that you feel powerful and important, for example. The Universe would then bring you (you would manifest) another scenario that would make you feel the same way. If the essence of your desire was to lead millions of people, that, too could be manifested, but it would take more time. You’d have to allow for all of those other people, those who are a match to being led by you, to be lined up.
Could you become Batman? You could line up with an experience that would mirror the essence of what it would mean to you to be Batman. You do create your own reality, but you cannot force others to participate in the reality you want to create. In other words, line up with the energy and let the Law of Attraction worry about the details.
15. And what if an ugly fat woman walks around in public like she is super hot and sexy, and believing as such in her mind 100 percent? Would everyone then think she was super hot and sexy and desire her? Or that she was delusional? And what about the people in the insane asylum who believe they are Napoleon or Jesus Christ? Does society accept their claims? Do they then become that and become the ruler or savior of the world?
Let me answer the Jesus Christ one, first. If someone in an insane asylum believed that he was Jesus, but his vibration did not match that of the Christ energy, then he would be nothing like Jesus, even though he believed that he was. If, however, that person’s vibration did rise to the level of where Jesus was, then yes, he could very well become an inspiration and spiritual “savior” to those he met. That person’s experience could then be one that matched what he believes the experience of Jesus would feel like. No one can know what Jesus actually experienced, since no one can know his exact perspective. The same thing goes for Napoleon.
Now, about the ugly, fat chick. Haven’t you ever met someone, man or woman, who, on paper, didn’t really look great. They may even have been what you’d call ugly. But in person, they had something. Something attractive. Something sexy. You couldn’t put your finger on it, but you just didn’t see them the way you would’ve if you’d only been looking at a picture of them. Maybe it was their body language. Maybe it was their confidence. Maybe they were funny, etc.
We see it in Hollywood all the time. There are character actors who are not gorgeous, but we love them. Meryl Streep is considered by many to be stunningly beautiful. She has a presence that’s undeniable. But looked at “objectively”, one could argue that she’s not all that pretty. And yet…
If a fat, ugly chick were to change her vibration to one of super hot and sexy, then several things would happen: She would emanate a different energy, causing those around her to react to her in a different way. She would only attract those who were a match to this energy, so even though there would still be plenty of people out there who would consider her fat and ugly, she would not meet up with them; only with those who would react to her belief and see her for who she really is. She would also, almost certainly, begin to treat herself better, eat healthier, do some fitness and over time, actually begin to look hotter and sexier by more people’s standards.
How you feel about yourself does govern how other people see you. I’ve seen this acted out in so many ways, both in my own life as well as in those around me. I used to train managers. If you go into a high pressure meeting, full of real confidence and knowing that you’re going to kill, you’ll have won before you even open your mouth. If you have fake confidence, you may be able to wow them with your presentation and enthusiasm, but they will feel the difference to the degree to which you feel it. If you’re nervous as hell, they will eat you alive.
Delusional is a favorite word of mine. Because it could be used to describe pretty much anyone who has dared to think outside the box. A person who believes he can climb Mt. Everest can be called delusional. Until he does it. Delusional people believe something that they have no outside proof for. That can apply to most of us. But I know what you mean. I believe that a clinically delusional person (someone who thinks they can fly or that they are married to a celebrity) is someone whose thoughts have become so painful that they create a fantasy world into which they can escape. It makes them feel better. In other words, their delusion is not going to create, the delusion is the manifestation. There’s a big difference between that and deliberately working your way into a better feeling vibration by focusing on what you like about your body to such a degree that you end up feeling super hot and sexy.
And that wraps up this series on answering a skeptic’s questions. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did (judging by your comments, you totally did), and perhaps gained a better understanding of the Law of Attraction in the process. I’m looking forward to seeing what y’all have to say! 🙂
