This may seem like a strange question, but I wondered what the qualities of great 'manifesters' are? Does being great at 'manifesting' make people into highly evolved spiritual beings, or more self-focused on attaining their next manifestation? Many experts in different areas seem to somehow develop a certain arrogance in their extensive knowledge on a subject. Does this also apply to great 'manifesters'?
As a spiritual person, I see a certain 'humility' regarding myself as a human being in relation to the Universe. I wonder whether the belief that we can be or maybe already are great 'manifesters' can negatively impact on this relationship so that we lose our humility. And even if some believe that we are all-powerful, how does being a great 'manifester' impact on relations with other human beings? I wonder whether being good at 'manifesting' can be yet another thing that people may use to imply their own superiority compared to others? Would be curious to know whether those people are who good 'manifesters' or experts on 'law of attraction' are actually nice people?

I think if you are consistently in the vortex you establish very, very quickly that it's not about the things. You manifest things you desire large and small for the joy of it but you realize that feeling deep love for yourself and for all others gives you a bigger, deeper rush of good feeling than acquiring things does. You see the world through the eyes of source so uplifting others with a kind word, a compliment, an act of care, a hug or embrace feels fantastic. As does raising yourself upwards, talking to yourself with love, softness and kindness, talking to yourself with deep love and enjoying the feeling that is triggered in you by such loving thoughts.
Don't get me wrong the 'stuff' is exciting too and the money and all of the material things lift your spirits but it's incomparable to the feelings that loving, appreciative thoughts trigger in you. The desire to deliberately manifest things is really just an excuse to get that loving energy surging through us, unrestricted by resistance.

love your answer @yes. Thank you! Very helpful. It would be great if people did really feel this way about manifesting. I'm sure most do. I wonder also whether using the same methods to manifest things/happiness for others is also a goal for many.

What do you think of your Self? You're a great "manifester" and it's just a question of whether you are manifesting what's pleasant or not. It's really not different at all except in the choice of perspective. Pleasant experiences implies one thinks pleasant thoughts.
answered 18 Sep '14, 14:02
Thanks @harsha. I guess I should have said conscious manifester. But I take your point that if you are having pleasant thoughts then you should also be a source of pleasant experiences.
(18 Sep '14, 14:50) Inner Beauty
About the same thing, conscious "manifesters" are merely those who are aware that their focus generates a corresponding experience. Pleasant focus = pleasant experience. The only difference is that they know that the cause of the experience is their focus. I suppose that means they take on total or a tremendously high degree of joyful responsibility (: not a shoulder-the-burden type of thing :) for their experiences.

Hmmm. At some point, when I realized how easy it is to manifest anything that I want, I went into a funk, because I realized that things don't matter. They're just things. I can manifest them whenever I want but they don't really make me happy. Things came to me too easily. I wondered for several years what I should manifest that would give my life meaning, but all of those years, I didn't believe that I was worthy enough to dare to manifest something magnificent - a gift for all of humanity.
One day, I saw the limiting belief and asked myself "why not". So now I'm reaching for the unreachable star. Turns out Jesus is right. The master becomes the servant. I'm in the middle of a project that is worthy of me (and humanity).

glad to hear that @Gail. :-)

Most people who are aware of Law of Attraction, are also aware of The All being One. It is easy to give to yourself, but what is it like to give to others? When you give to yourself , you give to The All, because you are a part of The All; but if giving to yourself means giving pain to others, then that pain is your pain since others are also apart of The All. To give joy to others, is to give joy to yourself, and to give to yourself is to give to others.
When you give joy, you automatically receive it, because All is One. When you give advice, you automatically receive it, because All is One. When you give assistance to help others achieve, you achieve, because All is One.
Whatever you give, you are. We know Light from The Shine it gives.
A course In Miracles says:
"To spirit getting is meaningless and giving is all. Having everything, spirit holds everything by giving it, and thus creates as the Father created. While this kind of thinking is totally alien to having things, even to the lower mind it is quite comprehensible in connection with ideas. If you share a physical possession, you do divide its ownership. If you share an idea, however, you do not lessen it. All of it is still yours although all of it has been given away. Further, if the one to whom you give it accepts it as his, he reinforces it in your mind and thus increases it. If you can accept the concept that the world is one of ideas, the whole belief in the false association the ego makes between giving and losing is gone."
If Spirit is Light and Spirit is without ego, then giving is shining, and you give to yourself as your own light brightens everything. Humility is knowing that All is One and therefore that everyone else matters. The ego wants to be better than everyone. When you give others that respect that they are equal rather than lower, then you are giving love from your spirit. The Spirit already knows the truth, so it is already giving love. By giving love, The Spirit can help the person come into awareness about this.

If you really want to know the answer to your question. I'd suggest the following:

Seems like you've done that already, so perhaps you can summarise. :-) One thing I can say for sure about Stingray is that he is very generous with his knowledge and that is obviously a great quality.
(23 Sep '14, 17:35) Inner Beauty
Of his 1,140 answers and 96 questions (as of today), I'd say I have read probably around 200, so I have a long way to go. But it's taken longer because I have read some of the answers many times.
Up until this point, I never found a teacher who would resonate with me. Several showed early promise, but then their inadequacy showed up.

I thought I was a very strong manifester and spiritually fairly advanced - until I started reading Stingray's materials. Since coming across his stuff my progress has suddenly accelerated. Up until now, I used to look back a year or six months, and I'd say to myself "Yes, I have made a lot of progress". Now I am looking back a week or a month and I detect the tremendous progress I have made since then.

I can summarise his teachings in one sentence: Have fun all the time!
I am having an absolutely awesome time! The best time of my life.
