Does Law of Attraction Really Work? An Experiment for You

They say the Universe is infinitely fair and always delivers, and that we are the ones who get in the way of manifesting everything we want.

Here's a question for you:

How's that working out for you?

Some people will say, "Great!" These people are born manifesters and seem to be able to conjure up manifestations on command. They've got the Midas touch, so to speak. Then there are others who struggle with the Law of Attraction but never seem to manifest quite what they want.

These are the people who write with questions like this: "I know I'm getting in my own way when it comes to manifesting what I want, but I don't know how to get out of my own way. Help!"

So what can you do if you keep getting in your own way when it comes to manifesting what you want in your life? You can try this magical experiment.

A Magical Way to Get Out of Your Own Way
So how do we get in our own way when it comes to creating what we want with Law of Attraction? Usually by being too active and "busy." Law of Attraction says that to manifest, we simply put our attention on what we want and feel good about it. As long as we keep feeling good about what we want, the Universe inevitably delivers.

That's all good and well, but most of us get pretty impatient when it comes to what we want. So instead of waiting for the Universe to deliver the manifestation, we start taking action on our own, hoping to "make it happen." That's when we get in our own way and prevent Law of Attraction from really working.

So here's a magical experiment for you to try if you are one of these people who gets in their own way:

Choose a single area of your life where you want to manifest something and commit to physically changing nothing for six months to a year.

The goal of this experiment is to take no action steps with regard to what you want to manifest. Literally sit on your hands if you have to. Magically, this gives the Universe some room to work, so that it can deliver that which you want. It's the magical equivalent of "hands off!"

A Magical Example
One woman, Anne, wanted to attract her soul mate. She had tried online dating sites, speed dating, blind dates, and even singles events. Nada. She had made a list of qualities that her perfect mate would have, and she had tried every action step imaginable to bring him into her life. No results.

Finally, tired of struggling, she agreed to try this experiment. She committed to taking no physical action steps to bring her dream partner into her life. Instead, she decided she would focus her attention elsewhere in her life. She signed up for a membership at her local recreation center and started taking a Tae Kwan Do class. She also put more of her focus on her career and her art work, which she had abandoned a while ago.

Not three months later, Anne crunched her bumper in a mild fender-bender. Did she crunch bumpers with her dream mate? Nope. But she did meet her soul mate because of the car accident. He turned out to be the insurance adjuster who came out to inspect her car for damage. She never expected him to show up as an insurance adjuster, but then again she had stopped expecting anything.

By putting her attention elsewhere and not "pushing the issue" Anne literally bumped into her soul mate. She gave the Universe room to work the Law of Attraction, and was pleasantly surprised when it happened halfway through her period of committed inaction.

So, what do you think? If you are feeling frustrated that something isn't manifesting in your life would you be willing to try this exercise for three, six, or even nine months? Think it might save some wear and tear on your soul?

  1. Great advice. We have to give room and time for things in our lives to change and manifest.

  2. Thanks....I needed to read that. My spells tend to take 3 years to manifest. Now that I think about it, they usually do manifest when I've stopped thinking about it. Insightful post...

  3. @Shell ... yeah, space is good and good things happen we look the other way!
    @Anonymous ... you are very welcome...your spells should be manifesting more quickly in this time period as we move toward 2012 and other "events" on the cosmic calender!
