Over the years numerous people have sent me messages asking why, despite the fact they are trying very hard applying The Law of Attraction, they have still not attracted their wishes, needs and desires.
I should mention that I also receive numerous messages from people who have successfully applied the Law of Attraction, and as a result continue to do so in their lives, attracting all of their wishes, needs and desires. Once success with The Law of Attraction is experienced, all doubt, one of the major blocks, fades away, and the true power of the Mind can be more fully realised. Such people will never want for anything ever again.
So why in many cases does The Law of Attraction not seem to "work".
Well there are numerous possible reasons for this. It should be mentioned that everything we ask for is instantly given - all we have to do is harmonise with the Thought Form to bring it into our reality.
Lack of success is very often for a procedural reason due for example due to a lack of true Faith and Belief in absolute terms - i.e. not in religious terms. Other times it might be due to a lack of thinking in terms of the present tense, knowing that the object of the desires is already in the experience of the person, or a lack of feeling that it is true right now.
We have discussed many of these factors in previous newsletters, and will doubtlessly discuss them again in the future. My book also discusses The Law of Attraction and the necessities for success in great depth:
Suffice it to say that attracting anything we could possibly wish for, need or desire should never require any effort - we all have the natural God given ability - all we need to do is realise it.
This week however I would like to discuss the reasons for apparently delayed manifestation when a person is doing everything right. This is very important because so many people give up on their desires just before they are about to manifest into their experiential reality, thereby never seeing them, after often being too disillusioned to make conscious use of The Law of Attraction again. As soon as you give up the Universe will react accordingly and assume that the wish, need or desire is no longer wanted.
In the Astral and inner worlds our thoughts manifest instantly so they can be experienced without delay - this is why the Astral worlds are known as the "desire worlds". Beyond the Astral the same applies and even more so, but by then people have recognised material things for the illusion they are.
The physical Universes are right at the very extreme of vibration, at a vastly slower rate than the inner worlds, as well as at a much higher density, and this is one reason why it apparently takes so "long" to manifest a desire, even though "time" itself is an illusion.
The transition of the Ages, marked by the iconic date 21 December 2012 could see an end to this, where "time" and "space" no longer exert their influence.
Until then however, what are people to do.
One of the very first things to do when using The Law of Attraction is to realise that, due to the very nature of what we call "physical reality", there will very often be a delay between applying The Law of Attraction and experiencing the desire in physical reality due in part to the high density, low vibration of the physical Universe.
The Master known as Jesus knew these truths very well, and taught them in several parables, and this one in particular:
"He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down." Luke 13:6-9
In this parable the fig tree is a metaphor for a partially developed Thought Form that has not yet come to fruition. The owner of the vineyard was upset because he believed the tree was occupying space in his vineyard, without producing any fruit.
The fig tree and figs, the fruit, are again metaphors for the Thought Form and the manifestation of the Thought Form respectively. He goes on to suggest that the vineyard owner was being much too impatient, and that he should be allowed to spread fertilizer around the tree, and only cut it down if it still failed to produce fruit the following year. The vineyard dresser knew of course that, with the right nurturing and attention, the fig tree, representing the Thought Form ,would bear fruit, representing our desires.
These then are metaphors for being patient with our Thought Forms, and to nurture and fertilize them them with loving care, until they finally came to fruition.
This is precisely how The Law of Attraction works in this respect, and what Jesus was teaching in this parable. Again we must remind ourselves that the Bible is not in any way theological, but is rather a book of Metaphysics and Spiritual growth encoded so only those ready and able to understand, would understand, because in reality the Bible is a book of initiation, and nothing whatsoever to do with theology or religion.
So what is the moral behind this parable?
This parable teaches that once you have created your Thought Form intentionally for example through The Law of Attraction, just because it does not come to fruition quickly it should not be abandoned. Instead, know beyond doubt that the Thought Form exists, that the Universe is already bringing it into your own experience, and to nurture and fertilize that Thought Form with the right thoughts, expectations, feelings, knowing and above all true Faith and Belief in the process as an aspect of The Source, The First Cause, God, and co-creator in the Universe with the same God-given powers of creation.
