To desire one thing today and another tomorrow means failure. To work for one thing this year and another thing next year is the way to empty handedness at the end of every year. Before you begin to apply the power of desire, know with a certainty what you want because when you get what you have desired, you may have to take it. If you do not know definitely what you really do want, desire a better judgment, a clearer understanding and a more balanced life. Desire to know what is best for you, and the force of that desire will tend to produce normal action in every part of your system. Then you will feel distinctly what the highest welfare of your nature actually demands. In deciding upon what you want, however, do not be timid, and do not measure the possible with the yard-stick of general appearances. Let your aspirations be high, only be sure that you are acting within the sphere of your own inherent capacity; though in this connection it is well to remember that your inherent capacity is many times as great as it has been supposed to be; and also that it can be continuously enlarged.
This is when we begin the search. Most of the times, it is intensively excruciating and disappointing. We may get in relationships that turn out not to be what we expected. We get disappointed and discouraged, and we are deeply mad not only on our partner, but to the whole opposite sex in general. Some people close themselves completely and are not able to attract ANYONE into their love – they become lonely…
In fact I have a really hard time understanding how anyone can call it bullshit when we use this method already in the tangible forms we have to bring thought into reality. An artist concieves of an image and then paints it into reality using the tools and ability he knows. It seems to me at least to some degree the LOA is self evident and undeniable. It is simply explaining ways we already know and trust to bring potential reality into kinetic reality.
If I can manifest small amounts of money like this, the sky is the limit on what I can do. Thank you so much, Ken, for your life-changing book. I cannot explain the mechanics on how it works, I just know IT WORKS!! In manifesting, there are no limits except what we place on ourselves. If you do not see instant results, do not loose faith. The “wad” of money is just around the corner, or in my case, in plain view in the parking lot ready to be claimed!
So, I will acknowledge that I came to The Secret with a negative attitude. When I bought it, I quickly stuffed it into a plastic bag, glancing around Barnes & Noble to make sure I saw no one I knew. The last time I was this embarrassed at a bookstore was when I bought The G Spot, another best-seller that provided instructions for achieving bliss. For the Human Guinea Pig column, I usually do things that readers are too embarrassed or too intelligent to do themselves—like entering a beauty pageant or entertaining at a kid's birthday party. I wanted to see if applying the rules of The Secret to my life would bring me the perfect happiness that it promises. But millions of you have already beaten me to this one. There are now 5.3 million copies of the book in print in the United States, and publisher Simon & Schuster says it is selling about 150,000 a week. A separate DVD version has sold at least 1.5 million copies. Groups have formed to discuss how to best live by The Secret's rules. It is a No. 1 best-seller in Australia, England, and Ireland, and it is scheduled to be translated into 30 languages.
2. Create a Manifesting Mind. Your mind must be working for you, not against your intentions. You can help your brain develop a manifesting mindset by establishing affirmations that begin with the word, “ I AM.” This puts your mind in present tense and your mind will tend to match the reality that you live with the reality that you affirm. BTW, do your affirmations often throughout the day.
As someone who is consciously focused on manifesting your soulmate, you too must recognize the powerful influence your thoughts and feelings have on your point of attraction, and do your best to keep them positive. I know; the process of magnetizing your soulmate can get discouraging at times. But if you’re approaching it from the mindset of “it’s been a year and it still hasn’t happened,” you’re living in the reality of what’s missing. The universe simply can’t add more love to your life when you’re focused on the love you don’t have. Like the old tale of the farmer pulling up the newly planted seed to search for evidence of growth, the very act of “searching” evokes a feeling of desperation that blocks the natural flow of love. But if you can shift your focus to magnetizing your soulmate rather than “looking” for him or her; and if you can adjust your emotional state from impatience to savoring the waiting, love will blossom in its own time, and in colors and fragrances that will both surprise and delight you.
His money-making faculties are too small and too sluggish to produce as much money as he needs. He begins to desire for more. This desire becomes strong enough to arouse every element and force in his money-making faculties; for here be it remembered that the force of any desire goes directly into that faculty that can, by nature, produce the thing desired. This is one of the laws of mind. In addition, the action of his desire tends to arouse all the other forces of his system, and tends to concentrate those forces upon the idea of making more money. In the beginning, no important change in his financial ability may be noticed, except that he feels more and more confidence in his power to secure the greater amount desired. In a short time, however, possibly within a few months, he begins to get new ideas about the advancement of his work. His mind is beginning to work more actively upon the idea of increased gain. Accordingly, suggestions as to how he might increase the earning capacity of his business are constantly coming up in his mind, and ways and means and plans are taking shape and form more and more completely. The actions of his money-making faculties are also beginning to change; that is, they are becoming finer, more penetrating, and more keen so that his insight into financial matters is steadily improving. He is therefore securing the necessary essentials to greater financial gain, and as he applies them all things will naturally begin to take a turn.
“I am very happy and so grateful to the Universe/God, because by 01/01/2016 I have in my possession $50.000 which come to me with ease. In exchange for this, I intend to provide excellent service as an Affiliate Marketer and help thousands of people to improve in their lives. The money comes to me in exact proportion to the service I deliver, and the more people I help, the more money comes to me. I can feel the money in my hands, I can see them with my eyes, I can smell them with my nose. I have full faith that I own $50.000, and I am eternally grateful! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You”
“It isn’t about making money or not making money,” I tell him. “How you feel about yourself and your life will determine your next experience. Are you feeling fulfilled? Are you feeling happy? Do you feel that you have reached a successful place in your career and domestic life? Do you have relationships that are satisfying? Are you growing in your understanding of yourself? Do you believe in yourself and do you believe you are worthy of everything you want?”
Thank you so much for explaining the term soulmate, i felt i had met my true one, but because of past life experiences, we drifted apart, i still feel he is the one, so i will start my manifestation, as you have explained. I did meet with him in passing, a week ago, and he acted so awkward towards me, a lot of things have happened in the last 18 months, but i feel we are going to reconnect, i also feel our time apart was needed, as we were not in a healthy place, i wasn’t personally because of the loss of so many close family members. But i now feel on the right path, so thank you again for explaining things in great detail.
There are certain caveats. Apparently the universe has a language-processing disorder and doesn't comprehend standard English usage of the words don't, not, and no. So, as the book explains, if you summon the universe by saying, "I don't want to spill something on this outfit," the universe translates this as, "I want to spill something on this outfit." If only Rhonda Byrne, the television producer who is the author of the book and creator of the DVD, had been there to counsel those negative authors of the Ten Commandments!
So if you struggle with going after your dreams because you don’t feel like you are good enough, ask yourself, “what limiting belief holds me to this type of thinking?” You could easily believe that you shouldn’t be a millionaire, since no one in your family has done it. Your family might look down on people who are wealthy, and you choose poverty so they won’t treat you differently. Maybe you fear being in a relationship because you believe that you’ll always get hurt. And you might find yourself purposefully ruining good relationships due to that very belief.
When I tell people that this is what it really means to believe in a law of attraction, they don't believe me. They say, that's ridiculous. We don't control everything in the universe. But you are a perfect example of the negative, blame the victim side of the LOA. I understand, appreciate, and respect that maintaining this perspective is consistent with your beliefs in the LOA. My personal belief is that this is not healthy for you, others with whom you connect, or for society in general.
The problem here is that people are convinced that good things could happen naturally, just applying a revolutionary new knowledge which -of course- requires almost no effort. Then, when people fail to achieve their goals, the light turns on: they didn’t tried hard enough, they didn’t put as much effort as required, or they didn’t “think correctly”.
Skeptical Inquirer magazine criticized the lack of falsifiability and testability of these claims. Critics have asserted that the evidence provided is usually anecdotal and that, because of the self-selecting nature of the positive reports, as well as the subjective nature of any results, these reports are susceptible to confirmation bias and selection bias. Physicist Ali Alousi, for instance, criticized it as unmeasurable and questioned the likelihood that thoughts can affect anything outside the head.

To understand how parenting can cause personality issues, please watch the short video below, it is brilliantly done. It shows in a simplified way, how easy it is to cause life long traumas. If someone has experienced abuse much worse than what is shown in this video, then it is of course natural to think that the way they internalise or externalise their grief would be much worse.
The earliest and most critical events for a human being are the ones of interaction with their caregivers, the most important people in our lives. Babies and small children marvellously adapt to the way they are treated as if the world will always be similar, even after they’ve grown. Of course this is a handicap if their childhood environment does not prepare them for greatness or become people in love with life. Every event is recorded in the brain and in the body and most events are taken in total. Neural connections are made as experiences take place, and other neurons die away in a process called ‘pruning’ when these neurons are not used. The more positive a child’s experiences before the age of three, the more brilliant, inspired and healthy the child will be. The fewer nurturing and supportive experiences a child has before the age of three, the duller her intellect and the more injured will be her personality.

So who is your Soulmate? What does he or she look like? What are their qualities? What is it that makes them unique and attractive to you? For many of us, this journey towards our Soulmate begins by first experiencing what we do not want. Funny how life works, isn’t it? If you have been, or currently find yourself, in a relationship where you find that things are not flowing, it feels like it’s too much work, you argue and fight a lot, you don’t feel like you are compatible or complement each other, the passion is long gone, you constantly feel anxious about the relationship and you’re struggling to be happy, instead of feeling stronger, supported and inspired you feel weakened, or the person is in another relationship and not available to you, chances are that you’re not with your soulmate.
If you’re going to manifest your soulmate, it’s vital to first understand why it is that your attempts to find love so often go awry. Everyone’s story of looking for love is slightly different. However, there are often common factors in play that can block you from creating the romance you deserve to have. For example, you may find the following are true of you:
Amazing – this post got my attention and I have several friends that I want to send it to and generate a deeper conversation. I think The Secret has validity, but also it doesn’t work for everyone for several reasons. First: We aren’t all wired the same way – some people work intuitively and some work straight from intellect – neither right or wrong, just different wiring. Second: Our expectations in different phases of our lives are different. When we’re young, we’d love a “quick fix to get rich” and as we age – it’s just not as important because we begin to understand the price we pay for everything – whether it’s “free” or not. As Thoreau said “Everything we own, owns a piece of us” or thereby paraphrased. Third: As Ghandi said, there are seven things that wil corrupt us – one of which is “Wealth without work.” This notion of riches from the Internet or elsewhere without earning it is the Secrte gone South. The intent is to be pure of heart and yet, the focus is on money. Fourth: There is nothing wrong with earning a lot of money and also giving it back to your community, your church, your work associates, yourself – it’s just that money, in and of itself, is not the end all. Money gives you choices and that’s its beauty.
This can be done through affirmations and surrounding yourself in the energy of abundance. You can do this by dressing up in your best clothes, daily gratitude practice to be thankful for what you do have right now and also repeating mantras and affirmations that help to rewire your feelings about money. This can help so much to get you into the feeling space to welcome in prosperity. Feel worthy.

I just purchased this book this morning and after reading it, I feel 100% better about life! I was going through some really mind-boggling situations. I have been stuck in the same situation for the past 3 years and could not for the life of me figure out why! Now, after reading "How to Manifest Anything" I understand and now know how to change my life for the better. I recommend this book to anyone that is going through that segment of life, where they just don't know what to do next with their life. I give this book 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!
3) No Action: The only way to manifest your thoughts into things is to believe and live as if you’ve already accomplished your goal. LOA guru Esther Hicks said, “You did not come into this environment to create through action.” Action shows the Universe that you know you don’t have it and that you doubt its ability to manifest it for you. While it is obvious to most that action is a necessary component of goal achievement, it is completely inconsistent with a belief in a LOA.
If you are constantly cranky and upset, then you will be creating more of the same into your experience. It works like a big mirror. You create your vibrational set point, buzz that frequency out into the ether and whatever your dominant energetic patterns are will be drawn to you in the form of things, people and experiences that are in alignment with your vibration set point.
First, be aware that it seems we are stepping into the dawn of a new age for mankind. We now have two major elements available to us that foster this. One being an explosion of scientific insights, observations, discoveries, etc. This is happening now at an exponential rate. Another being the most efficient information and connecting medium humans have ever known, the internet (this being the most powerful of many new technological abilities). Very much like one of the greatest growth spurts in our history. I’m referring to the era of the Helinization of the world. With the introduction of roads connecting every part of the known world, a commonly spoken language (Koine Greek), a new ability of thought (philosophy and the introduction of cause and effect), humanity rapidly advanced. Since then we have had to redefine or enhance our understanding of reality frequently, ie once our world was flat, the sun use to revolve around the Earth, etc…
This Full Moon in the opposite sign of Taurus brings its themes to the equation. This sign is practical and simplified. It is associated with physical things, beauty, and stimulating the senses. Taurus is about the natural world as well as food, money, values, worth, and resources. It can be slow, thorough, indulging, deliberate, reliable, cautious, yet lazy and procrastinating. As an Earth sign, Taurus is grounded and realistic.
Your only job is to be in the Flow of Life by consciously experiencing your joy and your clarity about your deepest mission and Higher Vision. Do this by giving the goodness of your Self to all beings you encounter. Give the gift of listening or a smile or kind attention to everyone around you. You can do it. Do what is fun. Be child-like. Give the gift of your innate power and goodness to others and simultaneously let this power and goodness into YOUR Heart.
Begin by training yourself to notice love in the world around you, from your personal relationships to images in media to the people in your neighbourhood. For example, I’ve felt my heart break a little (in a good way!) from watching older couples walk down the street hand in hand. Despite all the madness in the world at large, love is still plentiful. All you need to do is train yourself to see it.
Most people live in this negative realm, so it’s considerably difficult to manifest money, or anything else for that matter, when this is the case. However, when you know that something will happen, your faith helps you to transcend that fear. This won’t work in the short term. The Law of Attraction takes considerable energy produced over an elongated period. Not days or weeks. Think months and years.
Specifically, you attract love with people who are aligned with your vibrational state. So if you are down on yourself or lack confidence, you often find love only with people who treat you poorly and fail to recognize your worth. Therefore, looking for love with real intention requires you to form a deeper, more profound and accepting connection with yourself.
I am trained as a "hard science" PhD in Pharmacology and do understand scientific method. The LOA is not based on scientific method and the erroneous conclusions in metaphysics are based on incorrect scientific assumptions. These assumptions may have seemed reasonable in the 1800s that there was no air around us, only ether and that thoughts only transmit through ether. Perhaps this assumption is correct, however we are not surrounded by ether.
If you read LOA websites and posts, you’d guess that it is might be over 90% effective - everybody seems to be achieving their goals this way. Talk to experts who deal with the general public trying to use a LOA, there’s a completely different story. The failure rate is huge! In fact, LOA expert John Assaraf estimated that the success rate is about 0.1%!! We believe this number to be correct.
I am going to give you the step by step process on how to get started, but don’t forget what I mentioned at the beginning of this article. This is the step by step process to follow once you’ve faced your challenges head-on and committed to carrying out deeper work. Example: If you still have anger and resentment towards an ex that cheated on you, then you have to work through letting this go. You cannot harbor any negative emotions related to love when you are manifesting true love. That’s why I created my Soulful Love workshop in which you can learn how to manifest the right man for you in 6 weeks.
Your explanation, however, hits on the crux of positive change in a way that everyone can grasp: “When you believe something is something, even marginally, you begin to do a thousand little things differently. You talk to people you’d normally avoid. You ask questions you’d have been to shy to ask. You help people you’d normally ignore. You dress a little better. You interact with more confidence. You carry yourself differently.”
I understand your scepticism about the LOA as I am someone who is open minded about it. However, I kind of lost confidence in your arguments when you started to present basic premises about the LOA incorrectly. For example, the primary focus of the law of attraction is not about material wealth. It is about self development, self love and the journey to self completeness within the context of mindfulness and positive thinking. This is a premise that is widely used within peer researched clinical therapies as well as many religions. Proponents of the law of attraction do not campaign for everyone to achieve selfish material gain and wealth. I have not heard or read anyone, no matter what level in their LOA journey that they are at. Their point is about the power of a positive mindset, a principle I am very much a supporter of and as I said, this is not unique to the LOA.
Be as clear as a laser beam. The ‘’ideal’’ effortless and conscious manifestation should look like a laser beam. Laser beam is 100% focused on one goal with all its energy and purity. We have to be certain and focused just as the laser beam is. If there is anything holding you back from believing or focusing on your goal then this something will be stopping your from manifesting your desire. I know that it’s very difficult to be crystal clear and focused but also shorter periods of time can do the magic because it brings up back to what I wrote earlier — conscious decision can create miracles. If we decide with all our will and focus then we can change an unwanted outcome into something what we want instead.
