The question I am often asked as a life coach who teaches Law of Attraction strategies is,
"Why do they work sometimes and not at other times?" For example, one person
imagines attracting the ideal partner and it happens, but when this same person imagines
a great career it doesn't happen. Why is it that someone can visualize a desired outcome
and feel positive emotions about it for over a year and still not manifest their goal? This
is the primary question I want to address in this article.
Why do law of attraction strategies sometimes fail to work? What is the main obstacle in
the way? The answer is, "Your own inner resistance." I am referring to your resistance to
achieve the goal you desire to fulfill. This resistance may be conscious or unconscious.
There is a part of your mind which does not feel that the achievement of this goal is in
your best interest. This part of your mind can sabotage your success. This creates an
approach-avoidance conflict. All parts of you are not in alignment and unified toward
fulfilling the goal. So it is like you are driving to a destination with one foot on the
accelerator and the other foot on the brake. How can you get to your goal if you are
pulling in different directions? This is the problem.
Without resistance you can easily achieve your objective.
Your Law of Attraction strategies will work easily for manifesting your desires when
there is no inner resistance. This explains why you might easily and quickly attract the
career of your dreams and fail to attract the love of your life.
The part of you that is resisting can be about many things. For example, deep down inside
you may not feel that you deserve love, happiness, or success. As a young child you may
have concluded that you were "not good enough" to receive some of life's blessings for
example. This false conclusion made as a child may be long-forgotten, but it can be
running your life at an unconscious level. You are longing for a particular dream to be
realized and yet one part of you is saying "no."
If Law of Attraction strategies are not working for you, identify the inner resistance and
bring it into the light of consciousness. This will dissipate its power. You can win over
and befriend the resistant part of yourself so there is nothing holding you back from
fulfilling your dream. There are many ways to find out what your inner resistance is
about and to overcome it. These strategies for how to conquer inner resistance can be the
subject of a future article. I discovered an unusual way to bring my unconscious
resistance into my conscious awareness and this removed the last obstacle between me
and my dream of attracting an ideal partner.
You may be thinking, "Okay, maybe I have inner resistance to realizing my goal because
just imagining I have attained it has not made my dream come true." The question you
have to answer is, "How do I identify and win over this resistant part of myself?"
Which of your dreams and longings have remained unfulfilled? Imagine that your goal
has already happened, associate positive emotions with it, and then overcome any inner
resistance to your dream becoming reality. This is the secret for getting Law of Attraction
strategies to work for you.
