Why isn't this working?

What we think about becomes our reality. The Law of Attraction is always working, and works every time. So why do we not always get what we want when we want it? There are reasons why some of the things that we wish for come to us, while others take longer or never seem to show. Why?

Well, I would say that the most common reason we do not receive what we want is because of our beliefs. What do we believe is true? For something to manifest in our lives we must truly believe that it is possible and that we deserve to have it. A lot of our ideas seem so far away and impossible sometimes. Because that is what we believe to be fact. When we change our beliefs then we can change our reality. What is on your mind? Abraham (Ester & Jerry Hicks) put it simply as "your habitual dominant vibration," this is what will create your world. What are you focusing on? What is attracting your attention? These thoughts are what will continue to create your world. Your dominant thoughts. But, the beauty of it all is that we are choosing what we think about, just like we can change our thoughts if we want to.

The next reason that could be causing our desires not to show would be a lack of patience. Louise L. Hays compares the Law of Attraction to a seed. When we ask for something, our desire, we must give it time to appear - just as if we were to plant a seed. It takes time for a seed to grow, it doesn't just happen over night. Some plants take little time, while others can take years. We must be patient and believe that it is happening. And we must not be so desperate for our desire to come about. Once again, Abraham (Ester & Jerry Hicks) says: "The most common misunderstanding that prevents people from getting control of a situation and gaining their personal balance is the belief that I need to get where I want to be right now or as quickly as possible. The urge works against you. When you feel an urgency to be somewhere else, you are pushing hard against where you are." And although we are asking for more we must continue to be thankful for all of the things that we do have. When we are in that happy, thankful, joyous mood then that is when the magic happens. Our positive mood is like fertilizer to our plant, it helps it along, gives it nourishment.

And lastly, another reason we may not be seeing our desires in our lives could be because we are focusing more on the bad then the good. If you are ill and want better health, yes you may ask for that better health but you are focusing on the uncomfortable situation, the pain, it's all you can talk about. Or if you need money - you ask for it, but then all you can think about are the things that you don't have instead of the things that you do. You keep thinking about those bills or how you never have enough. What are you focusing on? You can't ask for prosperity and then expect it to come out of your thoughts of being deprived. Sometimes it can be very hard to change our thinking patterns, but with practice it can soon become natural to us.

So ask yourself, "What am I really thinking about?" When you put forth those thoughts of desire, do you really believe it is possible? Do you really believe that you deserve it? Are you practicing patience, or doubting because it hasn't happened yet? Are you thinking about what you want more than what you don't have? These are all very important questions which will really steer you into the right direction when it comes to fully utilizing positive thinking and the Law of Attraction. Believe it is happening, your dreams are right around the corner!

  1. I really appreciate what Ester & Jerry are saying about "now vs. wanting to be somewhere." That is great advise for living in the moment as well and being content with the NOW. Not just wishing and being focused on the future.
