In fact, you may be one of those who has tried to use the Law of Attraction in a conscious and methodical way and has failed to get the results you sought. This may have led you to either be discouraged or to be skeptical about its concepts.

What are the reasons for this? When you put this immutably cosmic rule to the test, do you have the proper communication with your subconscious -- the part of your mind that is in charge of manifesting your life circumstances?

Here are six possible problem sources with their simple solutions which can make the Law of Attraction successful for you:


  1. 1) You secretly don’t believe your desire can or will manifest. If you doubt that the attainment of your desire is possible or believe that it is out of reach, your subconscious will block its manifestation. Solution: Examine your desire and figure out if you really think its attainment is realistic.
  2. 2) Your desire is not clearly defined. Vague hopes are often ignored by the subconscious altogether. Solution: Sit down and write out exactly what you wish to attract to your life now. And be specific and detailed.
  3. 3) You secretly believe that your wish is immoral or unwise. There may be a part of you which believes that attaining what you want might harm yourself or others. Solution: Do some soul searching. Consider the moral implications of your desire. Do some self-talk and inform your subconscious exactly why attaining your desire is healthy and good.
  4. 4) Your desire is too big. Sometimes, desires are simply too much to manifest all at once so the subconscious is overwhelmed. Solution: Break your goal into several smaller goals. For example, if you want to become president of a Fortune 500 company and you are currently unemployed, the fulfillment of your desire may require many small steps.
  5. 5) You tell others about your desire. If you tell your friends, relatives and co-workers about your manifestation goals, you diffuse the concentration of your inner power -- and thus weaken the vibration. Solution: Don’t tell anyone of your desire unless they have a direct role in manifesting it.
  6. 6) Karma. There may be some unbalanced action from your past that currently prevents you from attracting the object of your desire. Solution: Often, karmic action and reaction are hard to trace. But consider your past and how it may be impacting your ability to manifest the desired changes. Then attempt to mitigate your karma.

Whatever the reasons, the point is that the source of failure isn’t the invalidity of the Law of Attraction, as some people have concluded erroneously. The problem is each person's individual mental and emotional blockages. And by removing thoughts and attitudes that block our success, we can learn how to use the law more consciously and wisely so we can manifest the most beneficial outcomes.
