So I was thinking...How do you explain when people think for sure one thing is going to happen, and the total opposite happens or it doesn't happen at all. I mean if the excitement, feeling and thought is there then how come alot of times things or intentions do not manifest if a person is so sure about it?
I see this happening all the time. With people who don't necessarily practice loa. I know in the past I have done it. Been SURE something is going to be one way, or that I would get something specific, and been dissapointed.
Here is a quote from Eric Butterworth that always helped me understand this,
"Faith is expectancy. You will not receive what you pray for, or even what you say you have faith in. You will receive exactly what you expect."
Does that help?
Even if you have a tiny part of you, no matter how small it is, that doesn't believe it will work... than its possible it wont. Or if a part of you still questions it, that doubt will affect it. It is precise... the universe pays attention to the whole of your vibration and everything factors in.
And then... how do you know it just hasn't manifested yet? Your desire is there, but there is some form of resistance that is keeping it out of your reality... maybe the doubt? Are you frustrated it hasn't happened soon enough? Think about it... because if you don't truly expect it to happen, it won't.
Also, its hard to say what another person believes in... you'd have to ask:
Does this person truly believe this will happen? Do they have any limiting beliefs that could affect it? (Ex: things don't always go the way I plan, sometimes bad things happen, things don't always turn out great)
Like others have said, there wasn't real belief there probably. And even if those people felt belief, they didn't hold it for enough time.
From my experience, there are 4 manifestation stages when you align with the vibration of your desire, as you hold the vibration :
So anyway (I got a bit carried away, that's what happens when you just get into the vortex and start writing:)), it looks like the people you talk about where about at stage 2, and then some kind of doubt stopped them. Also it is possible that in that high state, an unconscious and unwanted vibration has manifested itself to "process itself out", and that's what caused the doubt. Anyway, the only solution is to keep allowing and watch what happens.
I am stepping here because I am not Eddie or Stingray, but I am reminded by them that reality is fluid. Soo manifestations and there outcome are fluid. What are the things to consider? How strong is the desire? How clear was the desire? Was it left to the Universe? Did the person let go? Was time Allowed? Did something better come along instead?
I could go on. Keep practicing..

To get what you want in life -- here or hereafter...
You have to WORK at it... physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
If you are dilligent, eventually you WILL succeed.
But True Success is even more than mortal decision and human determination; it is a wholehearted consecration of yourself to an unreserved bestowal of love.
