There are two problems with the Law of Attraction. Firstly — it doesn’t address that the law applies to you and ONLY you. Secondly — you can’t create whatever you desire out of the void.
A perfect example of the first problem is Donald Trump. What he wants isn’t about him — it’s about making other people propping him up and doing his bidding. Hence, he’s trying to consciously create a reality in which people chose him to be President. But he has ZERO control over other people — so he’s misusing the law to attempt to create a reality that’s not possible because it’s not truly about himself and his desires.
The second problem is the one most people face with the law. They get caught up in this idea that if you simply will it and put it out there to the Universe — without doing any work at all — it will simply come into being.
But even the fastest supercar needs time to accelerate from zero to sixty. Likewise, there needs to be a process — you cannot just create reality from the void.
Ergo, you can’t become an astronaut if you don’t have the money to buy into space tourism or the science degree or military training that could get you into the space program. A dreamer who has taken no steps in any of those directions can’t consciously create reality out of the void.
The truth of the Law of Attraction is not pie-in-the-sky conscious reality creation. It’s about what you truly desire — in the present — to better your life.
For example — healing from injury. This is where it can and does work — because impossible and possible are the same coin and flappable as such.

My right clavicle (collarbone) was shattered, and the brachial plexus (the nerve bundle that controls all the…
