simply says that you attract
into your life whatever you think about. Your dominant thoughts will
find a way to manifest. But the Law of Attraction gives rise to some
tough questions that donít seem to have good answers. I would say,
however, that these problems arenít caused by the Law of Attraction
itself but rather by the Law of Attraction as applied to objective
Here are some of those problematic questions (all are generalizations of ones I received via email):
- What happens when people put out conflicting intentions, like two
people intending to get the same promotion when only one position is
- Do children, babies, and/or animals put out intentions?
- If a child is abused, does that mean the child intended it in some way?
- If I intend for my relationship to improve, but my spouse doesnít seem to care, what will happen?
These questions seem to weaken the plausibility of the Law of
Attraction. Sometimes people answer them by going pretty far out. For
example, itís been said by LoAers that a young child experiences abuse
because s/he intended it or earned it during a past life. Well, sureÖ
we can explain just about anything if we bring past lives into the
equation, but IMO thatís a cop-out. On the other hand, objective
reality without the Law of Attraction doesnít provide satisfactory
answers either ó supposedly some kids are just born unlucky. Thatís a
Iíve never been satisfied by othersí answers to these questions, and
theyíre pretty important questions if the Law of Attraction is to be
believed. Some books hint at the solution but never really nail
it. That nail, however, can be found in the concept of subjective
is a belief system in which (1) there is only one consciousness, (2)
you are that singular consciousness, and (3) everything and everyone in
your reality is a projection of your thoughts.
You may not see it yet, but subjective reality neatly answers all these tricky Law of Attraction questions. Let me ísplainÖ.
In subjective reality thereís only one consciousness, and itís
yours. Consequently, thereís only one source of intentions in your
universe ó YOU. While you may observe lots of walking, talking bodies
in your reality, they all exist inside your consciousness. You know
this is how your dreams work, but you havenít yet realized your waking
reality is just another type of dream. It only seems solid because you
believe (intend) it is.
Since none of the other characters you encounter are conscious in a
way thatís separate from you, nobody else can have intentions. The
only intentions are yours. Youíre the only thinker in this universe.
Itís important to correctly define the YOU in subjective reality.
YOU are not your physical body. This is not the egoic you at all. Iím
not suggesting youíre a conscious body walking around in a world full
of unconscious automatons. That would be a total misunderstanding of
subjective reality. The correct viewpoint is that youíre the single
consciousness in which this entire reality takes place.
Imagine youíre having a dream. In that dream what exactly are YOU?
Are YOU the physical dream character you identify with? No, of course
not ó thatís just your dream avatar. YOU are the dreamer. The entire
dream occurs within your consciousness. All dream characters are
projections of your dream thoughts, including your avatar. In fact, if
you learn lucid dreaming,
you can even switch avatars in your dream by possessing another
character. In a lucid dream, you can do anything you believe you can.
Physical reality works the same way. This is a denser universe than
what you experience in your sleeping dreams, so changes occur a bit
more gradually here. But this reality still conforms to your thoughts
just like a sleeping dream. YOU are the dreamer in which all of this
is taking place.
The idea that other people have intentions is an illusion because
other people are just projections. Of course, if you strongly believe
other people have intentions, then thatís the dream youíll create for
yourself. But ultimately itís still an illusion.
Hereís how subjective reality answers these challenging Law of Attraction questions:What happens when people put out conflicting intentions,
like two people intending to get the same promotion when only one
position is available?
Since youíre the only intender, this is entirely an internal
conflict ó within YOU. Youíre holding the thought (the intention) for
both people to want the same position. But youíre also thinking
(intending) that only one can get it. So youíre intending
competition. This whole situation is your creation. You believe in
competition, so thatís what you manifest. Maybe you have some beliefs
(thoughts and intentions) about who will get the promotion, in which
case your expectations will manifest. But you may have a higher order
belief that life is random, unfair, uncertain, etc., so in that case
you may manifest a surprise because thatís what youíre intending.
Being the only intender in your reality places a huge responsibility
on your shoulders. You can give up control of your reality by thinking
(intending) randomness and uncertainty, but you can never give up
responsibility. Youíre the sole creator in this universe. If you
think about war, poverty, disease, etc., thatís exactly what youíll
manifest. If you think about peace, love, and joy, youíll manifest
that too. Your reality is exactly what you think it is. Whenever you
think about anything, you summon its manifestation.Do children, babies, and/or animals put out intentions?
No. Your own body doesnít even put out intentions ó only your
consciousness does. Youíre the only one who has intentions, so what
takes precedence is what YOU intend for the children, babies, and
animals in your reality. Every thought is an intention, so however you
think about the other beings in your reality is what youíll eventually
manifest for them. Keep in mind that beliefs are hierarchical, so if
you have a high order belief that reality is random and unpredictable
and out of your control, then that intention will trump other
intentions of which youíre less certain. Itís your entire collection
of thoughts that dictates how your reality manifests.If a child is abused, does that mean the child intended it in some way?
No. It means YOU intended it. You intend child abuse to manifest
simply by thinking about it. The more you think about child abuse (or
any other subject), the more youíll see it expand in your reality.
Whatever you think about expands, and not just in the narrow space of
your avatar but in all of physical reality.If I intend for my relationship to improve, but my spouse doesnít seem to care, what will happen?
This is another example of intending conflict. Youíre
projecting one intention for your avatar and one for your spouse, so
the actual unified intention is that of conflict. Hence the result you
experience, subject to the influence of your higher order beliefs, will
be to experience conflict with your spouse. If your thoughts are
conflicted, your reality is conflicted.
This is why assuming responsibility for your thoughts is so
important. If you want to see peace in the world, then intend peace
for EVERYTHING in your reality. If you want to see abundance in the
world, then intend it for EVERYONE. If you want to enjoy loving
relationships, then intend loving relationships for ALL. If you intend
these only for your own avatar but not for others, then youíre
intending conflict, division, and separation; consequently, thatís what
If you stop thinking about something entirely, does that mean it
disappears? Yes, technically it does. But in practice itís next to
impossible to uncreate what youíve already manifested. Youíll continue
creating the same problems just by noticing them. But when you assume
100% responsibility for everything youíre experiencing in your reality
right now ó absolutely everything ó then you assume the power to alter
your reality by rechanneling your thoughts.
This entire reality is your creation. Feel good about that. Feel
grateful for the richness of your world. And then begin creating the
reality you truly want by making decisions and holding intentions.
Think about what you desire, and withdraw your thoughts from what you
donít want. The most natural, easiest way to do this is to pay
attention to your emotions. Thinking about your desires feels good,
and thinking about what you donít want makes you feel bad. When you
notice yourself feeling bad, youíve caught yourself thinking
about something you donít want. Turn your focus back towards what you
do want, and your emotional state will improve rapidly. As you do this
repeatedly, youíll begin to see your physical reality shift too, first
in subtle ways and then in bigger leaps.
I too am just a manifestation of your consciousness. I play the
role you expect me to play. If you expect me to be a helpful guide, I
will be. If you expect me to be profound and insightful, I will be.
If you expect me to be confused or deluded, I will be. But of course
thereís no distinct ME that is separate from YOU. Iím just one of your
many creations. I am what you intend me to be. But deep down you
already knew that, didnít you?
