Law of Attraction works quite well… but there is a caveat. You must go within and be aware of when you are self-sabotaging. For instance, if you think positively about how much you DO want the car in the garage, but you find internal chatter stating “I don’t deserve it” or “I have never had something that nice so it can never happen for me” or you have more anger or resentment over how that has been unavailable to you in the past or present…. you now have a big problem.
The “Bow and Arrow Theory of Manifestation” (described in the book ‘Shift: 12 Keys to Shift Your Life’) describes how powerfully we create with the strongest (emotional) intention to create the thought we are focusing on. An example would be a person who states a desire to lose weight (“I want to lose 10#!”). Unfortunately, when the same person walks into their work break room and finds the triple layer chocolate brownie cake and thinks with intent desire “I WANT the chocolate cake!!”, they are now much more powerfully sending out the intention of desiring the cake rather than the less intense desire to lose weight.
When there are conflicting intentions, the most powerful one will win out.
