Navigating the law of attraction can be a bit tricky at times. The concept that thoughts create reality leaves a significant gap in most people's understanding of LOA principles.
It's for this reason that occasionally, one can end up practicing a manifestation technique perfectly yet get the exact opposite of what they originally wanted.
This phenomenon is known as a paradoxical manifestation, and the reason behind it might surprise you.
We must remember, Alchemist, that reality is simply a reflection of our inner mental and vibrational environment. Therefore, words, mantras, visualization, and meditations are only as powerful as your ability to believe in them.
For example, when you repeat an affirmation for prosperity, such as "I have everything I need and am open to receiving more." The universe will pick up on the vibrations emitted by your aura at that moment. The words only help shape and direct your energy towards the intention.
And by having a misaligned intention with an LOA practice, what can happen is the exact opposite reality becomes manifest. So in the above example, if your intentions do not align with the affirmation, you may close yourself off to abundance and limit your potential.
The key to changing these paradoxical manifestations is to assess what you genuinely believe without trying and slowly bending those beliefs until less limiting beliefs form.
Alchemist, it's better to have gradual and steady change rather than no change at all? If you feel like the beliefs you're trying to create are too unbelievable, then there's nothing wrong with slowing down your manifestation journey and building a better foundation for your mental well-being.
