Since the LOA and Manifesting are dependent on thought, how can a brain-damaged or mentally ill person ever manifest anything correctly?
[Assuming we're talking about the human experience here, and our applications of the LOA in our physical lives.]
Well.. I don't believe all humans are created equally. The souls driving us perhaps, but that's not the perspective we are speaking from is it?
Well, in my personal experience it takes learning and dedication and application to improve one's self.
Also in my personal experience not everyone learns or adapts at the same rates.
I know that intelligence, life experience, disposition, mental resistance to new concepts, and many other factors strongly influence a person's rate of learning.
Since we are in essence craftsmen of thought, with our brains being the tools we use to make our creations, I don't see how the answer could possibly be no. This however doesn't necessarily mean it isn't just another 'obstacle' that can be solved through one application of will or another.
Who are we to say what is "correct"... for their life experience everything may be in perfect order.

I have wondered this alot myself because my son has C.P. He is 13 and has the" mental aptitude of a 18 month old or so, or at least that's what the doctors say. Even at this level he is limited by the damage the brain did to his body and so he can not communicate his thoughts, feelings or emotions in a "conventional manner". I have always wanted to connect to his consesnesses and see why he choose this experience and what he feels and experiences. So I ask my source to see if he can communicate these energy's and thought form my son. He tells me that my son is very privet and stubborn ( I knew that any way lol ) and doesn't want to share this, it is his to have and that's what his life is, and even though it bums me out I can't be part of his experience in a more intimate way, I suppose whats best for him is that I experience him in the way I do now . And I guess even if he didn't have his physical issues, he'd still be a "regular" 13 yr old and Id probably communicate with him 10X less than I do now lol,
I guess my point is this the l.o.a. and all things that were meant for his experiences are being met. just because we do not see the reason and have trouble dealing with what we see as a "regular" mind set in all this so I would imagine that it is much simpler for others who do have issues of mental illness and down syndrome and whatever they want to label it, because in truth there versions of L.o.a. are the same and show the cause n effect much more directly, because these types of mindsets they have are not clouded with indicission.

As far as I have known, experienced and understood the Law of Attraction, I can say that the limitation for this could only be a "diseased soul".
For example: The Law of Gravitation is true everywhere on earth. The limitation for this law can be seen in elevators (we are taken upwards). The body of the elevator can be a "diseased environment" for the law of gravity.
Similarly a diseased soul, that would think about manifesting something that is not in-tune with other laws of creation will limit the Law of Attraction. Although, the diseased souls get what they want - but with greater force (just like elevator needs external force to move upwards and oppose the law of gravity).
Therefore, diseased brain or a brain for which today's science claims to be not normal, cannot limit the law of attraction. For me, the diseased brain is same as a brain that functions normally but has disorganized thoughts that hinder the manifestation process. The diseased brain can be compared to a mountain or valley or man-made structures on the face of earth in the law of gravity analogy. The law of gravity is still true on the mountains and valleys and other structures, and there does not seem to be any limitation. Elevator is the example of man-made structure that shows the limitation.
I hope I am clear in writing about my understanding.
I would have to say that based on my understanding of the LOA, it's not our thoughts, but our vibration that attracts like vibration. Our thoughts affect our vibration and our vibration affects our thoughts. The more aware we are, the more we are in control of out thoughts and how we feel about our thoughts, which controls our vibration.
I guess it also depends on how you view mental illness and brain damage. If you see mental illness as being controlled by ones thoughts and emotions instead of controlling their thoughts and emotions, you can see that mental illness is a deep unawareness. Detachment from self. We all have thoughts, I see mental illness as an inability to realize that the thoughts are theirs and they have control of them, so they allow the thoughts to control them, and even view the thoughts as being separate from them, outside of them. A deep unawareness of self. The more aware we are, the more we can control our thoughts and the way we feel about our thoughts. It's a range, or spectrum of awareness to unawareness, consciousness to unconsciousness.
The more unconscious or unaware we are, the less we control our vibration. It is our vibration that we need to learn to control in order to control our manifestations. Along with unawareness comes limiting beliefs. These limiting beliefs cary a vibration that attracts more of that vibration.
