have you been in a situation that no matter how much you want or desire something, and you do anything possible for it to happen.. it goes the other way.. that insane stuff happens to prevent you from your goal?.. do you think it is that maybe no matter how much you want something the universe says no, that's not it for you.. no matter if you have always thought that it is what you want in your heart for yourself. and if so... do you keep trying?.. or after yourself, other people or situations have been affected enough decide to walk away and let it be?..
Don't put so much pressure on yourself to deliver the goods :)
There is no conspiracy to keep you from having what you want. I think I heard Joe Vitale say somewhere that "you can have anything you want, if you don't need it". This statement, to me is what really struck home ...in terms of reality creation and law of attraction. We desire something and can get it (and any other thing we want), but the only thing that keeps us from getting it, is usually our energy or vibrational disposition towards it (the intended manifestation). That desperate vibration of "I have got to have it!" attitude...keeps that goal (or thing) just shy of our reach.
Change your approach. Play with the idea of having that manifestation already. Lighten up your vibration, release some resistance to it. Think of things that you would do...if you had the manifestation already. The idea is to do things to take your focus off of not having it...and switch your focus more to already having had it and/or enjoying it currently. Or, perhaps, try to get your mind off of it all together. You have to find that exact formula (key) that works for you. remember that --> pretend with intent, eventually makes it real on all levels.

I think you have to remember Jinx that the Law of attraction is always at work. However it's only when we're fully in alignment with the source of all creation (doesn't matter what you call it) that it actually works in our favour. When things seem to be working against us or we appear to be "forcing destiny" it's really something within our own being telling us that we're not in alignment or even possibly the thing we think we want is merely an egoic desire that we think may satisfy us or bring us happiness but on a deeper level our higher self knows that transient thing will merely bring us temporary relief and below the surface it may in fact be working on attracting something much more beneficial.
I feel that it's also important to remember that the moment we begin to entertain seeds of doubt we actually put a screeching halt to the manifestation coming into physical reality... remember it already exists the moment we ask ( and we don't even have to be aware we're asking because we're constantly doing so through our thoughts without being consciously aware of a lot of them ). When we allow doubt in we are noticing the absence of what we want and so that's what becomes our reality. The key component in the whole process then is obviously faith... ask and totally let it go fully knowing that what you request already exists and you will experience it soon enough with your physical senses.
This is why all power lies in that Now moment...because it is only Now that we are creating (the future is just us catching up with that creation).
And I fully agree with streetsanto...there is only Source or God ( or whatever else you want to call it) and that source is All That Is. We humans are the only ones who assign the meaning to anything and when we fully realise this we also realise that the only thing that will ever hold us back is our own hesitancy to be completely honest with ourselves... in other words our own self delusions are the only thing keeping us from living the life we want and that realisation is empowering :)

I think when you try and force anything, you may not get the desired results you are looking for. There are a lot of people in the world today trying force things on themselves and others and usually it doesn't have the greatest outcome.
One thing I have learned recently with the LOA is that forcing anything that you want is going in the wrong direction. You saying "and you do anything possible for it to happen" sounds like you are pushing against what you want instead of letting go of the oars and floating downstream. It really comes down to the ease and flow of things regarding what you get and what you don't.
I understand where you are coming from when you talk about really wanting something and thinking the universe says no but sometimes that wanting turns into yearning or wondering where my things are at.
Instead of thinking of it in a "keep trying kind of way" you would be better off working on the knowing that what you desire is done and just let the how, who, when and where work itself out. This is the part that we all get hung up on and it really comes down to where your beliefs are held on how the universe works its magic.
You ended your last sentence perfectly. Think of your desire and feel the joy that the desire flows through your body, believe and know that it is done, and then just let it be.

Let me start by saying that I believe in God.
With that said, I can say that I dislike terms like "The Universe" and "The Source"- we are talking about God! So, if there is a God, then I can also say that there must also be something like Not-God or even Absence-of-God- in other words, Evil.
With me so far? Okay.
So, if we believe in God, then we must also believe that God created the Law of Attraction. Why would He do this? Because, in truth, Everyone is connected to All that there is in some way. The Universe could not work without these connections. I saw this when I saw into The Mind of God, which was truly amazing....
Anyway, so if we are believers in the Law of Attraction, we are actually seeing into the workings of the Universe and the Mind of God. Now we come to your question: Can we push too hard? What you might actually asking is this: Is there some Force which runs counter to the Law of Attraction?
We have danced all around this topic for two years...Those who believe in The Law of Attraction alone try to convince me that if I do not get what I have desired, I must not be vibrating right or must be doing something wrong! Without a belief in God. All the Universe becomes, if you think like this, is a big, fat, machine that delivers what we want if we apply the Law of Attraction formula in just the right way.
I just cannot buy this set-up.
I have run into the very same resistance as you have, and I know it for what it is: Absence of God, or My-Will-Run-Riot, or even, sometimes Evil .
Hmmm. What do I do now? The LOA is not working for me? What am I doing wrong? Perhaps one of these things rings a bell with you: 1. You are being tested by God. Yes, He wants to get our attention really bad, and He sometimes wants us to Believe in Him so much, because He loves us dearly, and wants us to turn to Him for what we need. He wants this so much that He shuts off the LOA and waits for our Hearts to Come Unto Him. 2. We are being blocked by Evil. If this is the case, James 4:7 of the New Testament gives anyone who believes the Authority to cast out Evil. So do it if this is the case. 3. God's Will, in your case, is NOT being done! It may be as simple as that.
Sorry to be so long-winded, but this is really important to me. In MY view, the Universe, which is really the sum total of God, is not a slot-machine or a formula that spits out what we want if we do everything just so. The Universe is God! So, if you are not "creating the reality you desire", think about prayer- yes, i said the "p" word! Prayer! Pray, and ask God to show you His Will. Then be patient, and you will get an answer!

Jinx, sometimes the answer is no. We don't have to like it, but that is true. Perhaps something even better is right around the corner. Perhaps others and their free will are involved and there is a lack of cooperation. Perhaps it is not for the best. Perhaps you will be thankful later!

Hello jinxx , remember that everything we want to manifest in our lives comes much easier when we let go, feel relaxed and confident. Act happy , create happiness within yourself , be joyful for no reason at all and you'll be surprised how quickly things turn around and become positive.

thx for the time you took to answer my question. What I meant was more along the lines of what LeeAnn said, I don't mean that I personally want something and I am frustrated that it is not happening, I am one of those people that believes that if something is not happening, and even if you try your hardest strange and unexpected things keep putting me in the other direction, that maybe it is time to make that direction work.
you all have a great week.. :)
