I am sorry it is still not too clear for me :p
I have been reading "The Secret" before (and through it) I came across The Master Key System, and now I am here. The Secret says that you have to have repetitive thoughts about what you want and fancy yourself with the thing in your hands (so to speak), in order to get it. It teaches you also how to get money by thinking constantly that money is on your way or fancying that you are counting it.
But Manifesting Experiment-1 says "don't ask money" "drop your wish in the box and forget about it, or you'll be constantly bothering the 'person' that you handle your wish to, so delaying the manifesting process" It sound as opposite things to me, and I'd appreciate more clarification on that. What must I do then?
Another thing: Where 'Affirmations' fit in in this process?? And Visualization?? Thank you! BJ09
Both approaches are actually valid.
But I realize that, on the surface, they both appear to contradict each other - one approach says you'll get what you want by thinking about it, the other says you'll get what you want by not thinking about it.
The reason that the two methods appear contradictory is because of the following incorrect assumption that people make about manifesting...
Most people believe that focusing on what they want is creating what they want...
...but this is not true!
What you want was actually created in the split-second that you decided you wanted it. It happened in that sudden brief surge of enthusiasm or inspiration, or in that moment of clear vision that came to you.
This is a really important point to understand...what you want already exists in the universe simply because you decided you wanted it, and now your only work is to align with it to draw it into your physical reality.
Once you understand that manifesting is simply about alignment with what has already been created, you'll see the various manifesting methods in a new light. You'll see that they are all really just little games you play with yourself to gradually bring yourself closer to that alignment.
Some of these games involve focusing on what you want and some involve not focusing on what you want. Either way is okay because they are only games. You just choose whichever you feel inspired to play with, or whichever you find most effective for you.
I've previously written this answer that explains the concept in more detail...and it also answers your question about where affirmations and visualization fit into the process.
Repetitive thoughts....followed by forgetting about it.Works for me every time. The core belief must change, then the release and letting go must happen.

I find that both works, but what works better for me is forgetting about it, and it will manifest in its' proper time!

This is also my top question on the LOA. I have been studying LOA for years and I still haven't decided what works best. Both works thought. I have tried both. Hmmm..... a lot of materials also give the same contradictions. Now which is which. I would love to figure out for myself.
