5 Manifesting Myths
By Jeanette Maw
It’s not surprising that the general public holds many misconceptions about the law of attraction and how to use it.
But even among LOA savvy deliberate creators there are common misunderstandings about what exactly is involved in manifesting what we want.
Here are some of my favorite law of attraction myths:
Myth #1 – You’re supposed to feel good or be happy all the time.
That’s not just impossible (for most of us), it’s not even preferable.
For one thing, 24/7 joy would get boring after a while; and for another, contrast is part of the whole creation process. It’s not only expected that we’ll run into negative emotions, it’s virtually required. Without negative experiences and thoughts, we don’t have new desires. And new desires fuel the whole expansion of life.
While deliberate creators know that bad moods are actually highly beneficial, we also know not to get stuck in them. We don’t have to be in one for long to get the benefit!
Myth #2 – You can use law of attraction to control life.
Much as you might wish you could get your boyfriend to propose, or husband to get a job, or kid to stop smoking, or neighbor to move – you’re actually only ever in charge of yourself and your vibration.
We don’t use LOA to control others. We use LOA to manage our own vibration and direct our own life experiences.
If I’m using law of attraction to get others to do things different so I feel better, I’m missing the whole point of vibration management.

Myth #3 – Negative thoughts are bad.
Sometimes negative thoughts are your best ticket to alignment.
When my neighbor once suggested we take revenge on our troublemaker neighbor by slashing the tires on his annoyingly noisey scooter, we burst into laughter at the mere thought of resorting to violence to improve our situation.
That negative thought brought a lot of relief.
Negative thoughts also contribute to our contrast, which as we know fuels expansion. There’s nothing wrong with having a “bad” thought now and then.
Myth #4 – Manifesting what you want will make you happy.
New Priuses don’t make you happy; marriage proposals can’t make you happy; promotions at work won’t do it either – only YOU can make you happy.
You can manifest a world of things and experiences, but if you don’t find the happy vibe on your own, nothing else will take you there.
Myth #5 – You can create whatever you want.
Much as we like to say we can create whatever we want, the truth is we create whatever we believe. That, unfortunately, is sometimes a big difference.
The work of a deliberate creator is to eliminate that difference by consciously choosing thoughts that are in alignment to their desire.
So the good news for conscious creators is that it’s okay to occasionally feel bad and think contrary thoughts, that you can forget using law of attraction to get others to do what you want, that it’s your job and yours alone to find happiness, and that you can manifest whatever you dare believe in. Pretty good gig, huh?
“Great stuff you are doing here.
Listen up because this is important – there is so much within you just waiting to be revealed and shared with the world. IF you limit yourself by what you think is possible, you will stay stuck – you have within you all of the magnificence of the Universe and one of the best ways to discover all of that – especially if you have kept it shut down for a long time – is to start to play.
Give yourself permission – set an alarm for 30 minutes and for that 30 minutes give yourself permission to play and to entertain any positive thought or idea that pops into your head even if it doesn’t seem logical. At the top of a piece of paper, write – “What if I am completely supported? What if everything is for my highest good? THEN what do I want to have my daily experience be?”
