Do bad thoughts manifest?

Do bad thoughts manifest?

I saw this question in a facebook group, and it is a perfect question because it highlights the most common misunderstandings in the law of assumption, and also, this shows why reading your own source material can help you avoid misunderstandings like this. Only learning from YouTubers and coaches can make you more confused, because the law of attraction teaches something completely different from the law of attraction. 

I recommend reading or listening to Neville Goddard a few times through.

The question, or comment, on Facebook generated hundreds of answers. The original poster liked the comments that supported her, and generally disliked the comments that held the answer. This shows how the state we’re in is like “misery loves company”. It is not only misery that loves company, but all states that we fall into like to keep company that supports its thoughts and opinions. If you are angry, you like to be supported and justified in your anger and so on. While working at a trauma healing center, I noticed that the biggest hurdle to healing is often just that, a sense  of justification of the state that the client was in, even if that was a victimized state. The state wants to perpetuate itself.

This was the question:

I think I am going to have to stop trying to manifest stuff, coz when I follow LOA teachers,  (I’m guessing law of attraction, not law of assumption) they always say that your bad thoughts will manifest too… saying not to think about bad things is EXACTLY like telling someone to not think of a pink elephant and you are stuck thinking about a pink elephant… bad thoughts plus fear of bad thoughts equals more bad thoughts “(notice that her state of needing justification for continuing the bad thoughts is asking the group to confirm that it is too hard to stop thinking bad thoughts, she is stuck in this state)

 “I feel like I can’t get out of this pit and I’m going to have to try and let my mind rest… saying that the tiniest bit of doubt screws up your manifesting, to me that means that manifesting is impossible… coz it’s impossible not to feel doubt that a thing that doesn’t exist EXISTS… I mean I’m having bad thoughts that turn into a pain symptom in my body almost instantly… so i’m just going to have to leave it all alone until I can get my mind back to normal… unless y’all have some good suggestions other than ‘don’t think that way’.. Thanks!

This state that, she wants support for, “the impossible task of not thinking bad thoughts”, is only a state, it isn’t a personality trait and it isn’t even in need of therapy. I don’t know the quality of her bad thoughts, but it sounds like anxiety. She has noticed that her bad thoughts turn into physical pain, and this is exactly what happens at the tail end of prolonged structural dissociation. The body says no. First her mind was saying no, and eventually her body said no.  This mind-body language is the communication of our physical self to our spiritual self. Her spiritual self, her core of conscious self does not agree with the negativity of her mind, it is communicating something different, but until she lives on the edge of her comfort zone, until she decides to leave the “misery loves company state”, this anxiety and physical pain will continue. 

(Treating pain syndromes like this without addressing  the state of misery, is pointless, the pain comes back in a few days. )

The law of assumption generally does not bother with over focusing on affirmations, or “not thinking bad thoughts” though, this comes from the law of attraction, a field of information that can be ripe with misinformation. This is where you hear about things like the 555 method, the 369 method or the water method, and other methods that are more or less like spell casting. The law of assumption has no overlap with the law of attraction in that regard. (Just the LOA acronym) The law of assumption is based on nondual principles. There is nothing to attract in a nondual consciousness…

We all experience a unique world of circumstances, this includes everything from different difficulties, different qualities of relationships, and we also experience a unique set of financial health or instability, differences in health and strengths and so on. Whatever we entertain in our consciousness is like water for a seed of circumstances.

What we entertain in our state of mind is the soil, the water, the sunlight and the sustenance for our own circumstances. 

I have a way of being drawn to true crime shows for example, and when I have spent a lot of time on my inner state, on building my inner divine connection I feel averse to true crime, but as soon as I expense a little  bit of actual stress in life I feel drawn to watching true crime again, this is how the state that we are in creates our thoughts, and our desires.

Choosing a desire and pursuing it from the mindset of law of attraction can keep us in a loop like this, stuck in a state. A state that contains the whole universe of our own unique experience. This includes good and bad experiences. But all the circumstances are within the comfort zone of the state. 

When we have decided to shift state, the mind has to dare to dwell on the fulfillment and completion of the desires. Yes the desires are also sometimes generated from that old state, but it is like a lighthouse guiding you forward, on into greater states. Neville Goddard talks about  “buying the pearl”  (and selling our contradictory beliefs.) It is taken from a Bible verse, like all of Neville’s teachings:

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”

The pearl represents what you want, and selling everything that he has represents every last contradictory belief that you have, the reasons that you have stacked against yourself.

Neville puts it this way:

“If you think for one moment you can hold on to one little thing in the event this doesn’t work, you can’t buy the pearl. And so when I buy the pearl, I go all out and live by it. And there is no other being in this world, just this pearl, and I live by it.  This pearl is your own wonderful human Imagination.” – Neville Goddard

Let’s come back to the original posters’ concern over bad thoughts.  Does everything manifest, every tiny little thought? Yes it contributes to your overall state, and the state manifests. It isn’t like the thought goes into a 3d printer and you get an identical experience, that cannot happen because of hundreds of thousands conflicting thoughts. ALL thoughts go into the 3d printer, and what comes out is a blend of everything. Like a cake that had all the ingredients mixed together, it comes out of the oven as a cake, not as each individual ingredient that went in. 

Just like I described with my true crime addiction, so our negative thoughts are addictive, and all negative things that belong to your state, are all addictive. They are designed by yourself for yourself so that you can alert yourself to the state that you are in and the path that you can take to level up out of that state, so that you too can experience a quantum jump, a shift into a completely different reality and THAT is what you want. That is what everyone ultimately wants. An easier and more pleasant life. For that to happen we have to learn how to use our own circumstances to level up, and not use them to keep ourselves stuck in the addictive patterns of seeking more and more misery. The desire that you are manifesting is demanding a different version of you. A version that has “sold all belongings and bought the pearl”. Luckily different versions of ourselves are just states of mind, and a state has no actual power over us. You are free to leave a state behind at any moment, it is completely lifeless without you, and you won’t remember those bad thoughts that you were so attached to before. Just like I don’t remember that I want to watch true crime when I am in a completely different state, and if I try to watch it I feel that it is too dark and I dislike it. 

Now, some real talk about negative thoughts….

I manifested a lump sum of a hundred grand once, I did an imaginal scene, and I created a meditative trance-like state when I did it. It took two years for that money to actually come in, but number one, I thought MANY bad thoughts in those two years, and furthermore, I did not believe. I actually didn’t think about it again at all, but I was a very negative person in many ways back then. I often took inventory of what was bad in my life, and I liked to talk about it with my friends too. I mention this because I want to show proof that thinking bad thoughts does not stop a manifestation, it just colors the quality of your life.I have made videos already explaining that you don’t have to believe either.

Thoughts and beliefs are generated by the state that you are in, and your manifestation will come to you  in accordance with your state. So the manifestation comes, but how does it come? It comes in a way that you can believe according to your state. You don’t have to change your thoughts or your beliefs to get your manifestation, but if you want to change state, your thoughts and beliefs will change along with the state.

I didn’t doubt either because I didn’t believe it. I had two years worth of negative thoughts in between lol! I have manifested so many things with a mountain of negativity still in me,including my amazing beach apartment, in the most amazing neighborhood,  but I am very GLAD that I cleaned that up, for my own sake ha!

Listen. Let’s explain this from a nondual perspective.

All you do is manifest, there is nothing else happening, but you, here, made manifest by your consciousness, there is literally nothing but us, manifesting, so why bother being so anxious about bad thoughts? Does it matter if you thought a “bad” thought and it threw a wrench in the machinery for a second?  This is the spice of life that we are a bit addicted to. That is why we like scary movies and the thrill of fast roller coasters.  Becoming more and more zen is a gradual process, and you get to choose your own path there, and your own pace there. If you like to think negative thoughts, then yes, it contributes to your overall life experience, but they do NOT prevent your manifestations.

Everything manifests there is nothing else. What thoughts do is contribute to the state that you are in, but you can choose not to worry about them and let them go, or you can choose to think only about the pain of bad thoughts, it is a choice. All that good or bad thoughts do is  they contribute to the “cake batter” of your state, that you are mixing, the “cake” is your state.  Your state  is a manifestation of its own, the state is a parallel reality, in an endless universe of parallel realities. 

 The state is a universe of its own where you think certain thoughts and feel different feelings and experience different circumstances and people. All of life, every last thing is nothing but consciousness, from our waking sensing experiences to our sleep, it is all consciousness. Different experiences, sure, but still all experiences are just consciousness. Consciousness, plus an object, is experience. Object without consciousness equals no experience.  The objects change, but the consciousness is the same. 

Changing objects equals different experiences. No matter what the object is, it is an object in your awareness, in your consciousness, even a mountain is still in your consciousness,  the whole universe is just an object in your consciousness. Now, The mind is also an object. The brain is an object and the mind is an object, and as such it arises from your consciousness. The thoughts without consciousness equals no experience. It is YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS that is like a projector light shining on the object, which reflects onto the screen of space that is your circumstances.  Change the object (thoughts) and a different experience will project out. That is how it works. There is no other way.

In summary:

Your state manifests the thoughts, not the other way around. Your thoughts can help you shift state if you understand this.

Law of assumption means that your assumed sense of self manifests, and the law of attraction…well…. I don’t know that it is anything to even think about, I don’t.  Pretend it is like this:

Step 1. You assume

Step 2. Your assumption projects out and becomes your world

Step 3. You attract or repel whatever you have projected out.

Currently, you are living in your assumed reality, and you are playing with your own projection, and you are sorting, attracting and repelling the stuff of your own projection. 

You CAN manipulate the projection by deciding consciously what you will assume, but you can also relinquish all of your power and just go along the way everyone else does too. It doesn’t mean that you “stopped manifesting” it just means that you are not conscious of your own projection.
