Q&A: ‘Why didn’t the Law of Attraction work for me?’

Let it out…and then keep moving!

Question submitted via Formspring: “How can I tell the difference between inspired action and action to “force a result”? I was feeling good and confident on manifesting something into my life, took what I thought was inspired action only to have it blow up in my face. What happened?”


We talked about this question on a recent episode of my radio show, Rise UP with B. Dave Walters, along with: Hitting Rock Bottom.
What to do when you don’t know what to do, how to pick yourself back up again, getting over an abusive past, can sex ever have no strings attached, how men and women see love differently, the Law of Attraction, Q&A, and more!

We have talked before about how the Law of Attraction does not fail, ever.  So the better question is what do you mean by ‘blow up in your face’?


The ‘secret’ to the Law of Attraction is to stay in alignment, and keep taking those inspired actions until the result arrives.  If you allow yourself to get distracted, or discouraged when it doesn’t work the way you think it should, then in those moments you are pushing your goal further and further away.  If you look at the lives of most people who’ve been successful at anything, they have worked hard for a very long time.  They get knocked down, but they get back up.

Being a conscious creator doesn’t mean you have a magical wish-granting genie at your disposal.  It doesn’t even mean that things are always going to go your way, or that you’ll never have any problems.  What it does mean, is that you are the captain of the ship, rather than a passenger.  The ‘sea’ around you may be smooth, or may be choppy, but you direct your energy, and by extension you direct your life.


So, if you really did take inspired action, and yet your goal did not manifest, the thing to ask yourself is: What do you need to learn from this situation?  Is it possible that the thing you want to be, do, or have, is still in the process of coming to you?  Were you unrealistic in your time table? Did you really do ALL you could do to help it show up for you, and what can you do next?

Remember, it took your entire life for things to become who you are and have the exact life you have right now, and it will take time for things to change in a new direction.  As long as you stay focused, and in action, it will show up as fast as it possibly can, but no faster.  Every time you give in to fear, doubt, or frustration, you just make the whole thing take that much longer.


You are great, and I love you!
