Chris Michaels, a handsome and very wise Science of Mind minister, told a great story a few weeks ago.
He explained that when you make an intention (or pray or send out a ‘rocket of desire,’ as LOA students might call it), you must act with authority. You must KNOW that your words and consciousness are powerful.
Remember that bit in the Lord’s Prayer where we say, “Give us this day our daily bread?”
“Our daily bread,” say Chris, “is everything we need to live well and be happy. How bold. How absolutely courageous!!”
Notice that Jesus taught us to command.
He didn’t beg. He didn’t plead. He didn’t even ask. Or say, “Please, pretty, pretty please, God, send me a loaf of pumpernickel.”
Jesus knew his word had power. He knew that when he spoke, his word was activated by a law of energy that only knows how to deliver whatever is held in consciousness.
You don’t beg the soil to grow a plant. You simply put a seed in the ground and watch it grow. You don’t plead with your coffee pot to make your morning coffee. You don’t stand over it and say.“Please, God, I’ve been really good and I need some caffeine.”
No, you simply plug it in. You place a demand upon the law of electricity by plugging in your coffee pot. And you know with complete authority that within a few minutes you’ll have coffee.
We simply must give up this notion that there is a reluctance by God to provide our good.
There is no reluctance on the part of the universe to give you absolutely everything good you can possibly imagine. But nothing can be given until it is claimed.

Amen! I think if prayer as an affirmation, not begging for something, but co-creating with God.
I think this is where many of us fault with our desires and requests to the universe. We forget that we are powerful creators and one with source. The universe moulds to our thoughts and wants. It’s the lack of faith in the fulfilment of our desire actually manifesting based on what we observe in our current reality that hinders the magic from happening. The universe decides how and when things come into fruition, just focus on what you want and the feeling of it, don’t worry about how it will come to you. When you KNOW and eliminate ALL doubt, declare your desire as a fact and expect it, it will come to you. Relax and watch it fall into your laps 😉
Very well said!
Often enough our current reality is exactly what creates the disbelief.
Because we are our own creators, we must believe in ourselves wholeheartedly to create a fulfilling reality. We must fuel the engine 100% if we want the result to be satisfiable.
Thank you for your post, it made me stronger :).
Just started your book and I will be using it for a talk series. Happy to see that you are familiar with SOM..since your book is SOM 101:). And wonderfully accessible for everyone! Thank you for the worksheets you posted online.
Deadlines! what if it is past the deadline and the FP has not provided yet? I gave up 2 full days for attracting a blue feather with the beliefe that it is coming and the feeling that it has come. I visualized my self with it and tried cultivate the feelings of it is being here already. I suspended all conscious, I cant know about unconscious, doubts, hesitations…It has been almost a week and nothing happned!
I am reading your book (E2) now and am on the second experiment now. So far, so good. Still, overcoming negativity is really not easy. Upon reading that we “don’t have to pray to plug in a toaster and make toast”, I kept thinking “of course we don’t. But what if the toaster is broken?”
Still, I am trying to stay positive and open-minded. I’ve had a number of experiences in my past that prove what you write about is true, but somehow my brain keeps trying to convince me otherwise.
I’d love to discuss my results from the first experiment with someone.
Are you sure tha giving deadlines is a good idea? what if for whatever reasons, you have a subconscious beliefe that it is possible to manifist a particualr thing but it takes more than 48 hrs for example or your ability to magnitize is not strong for example , it takes more than 48 hrs to manifist things. is it a must to have a deadline and if it is, how do you decide how many hours or days or..
Deadlines are simply a way to jar us into paying attention. Oftentimes, the manifestation occurs later. Sometimes, it occurs within minutes. The main thing is to have fun and start scouting all the blessings that constantly surround us.
I am very happy to read your response, thanks!! ONE last question :). I was able to attract a yellow butterfly within hours, I started seeing green cars everywhere but I could not manifist a blue feather or all the other little things I wanted to manifist based on the teachings in chapter 4. I ended up giving up completely and feeling very disappointed. Consciously, I tried to cultivate everything you mentioned in the book, however some say it is not the conscious mind it is the subconscious beliefs that manifist things. What can I do about those subconscious blocks, if they are what blocked the wishs from coming true.What should one do when their wish does not come true and start feeling frustrated and deeply disappointed.
