A Pseudo-Scientific Manifestation Craze
The Law of Assumption, manifesting and the law of attraction is a path to manifesting one’s desires, it promises the ability to shape one’s reality through focused thought and belief.
Some individuals within this movement, often characterized as a community, can display cult-like behaviors. They may aggressively promote their interpretation of these principles, stifling alternative perspectives and discouraging critical thinking. This narrow-mindedness can create a toxic environment where questioning or expressing different viewpoints is met with resistance or shaming. There is no need for that. You can be as complex of an individual as you like, and STILL create. It is a limiting belief that shows up again and again. YES it can be easy, and no, nothing “breaks” if it isn’t.
This blog post dives right into the thick of it, into the darker aspects of the Law of Assumption, exploring its manipulative cult-like tendencies and its divergence from genuine spiritual and scientific principles.
Calling out the cult
A cult is not an ideology you are encouraged to disagree with. A cult is an organization that enslaves mind. Cults are the ultimate form of tricksterism, and we should not be surprised to find that cults are cropping up around LOA. The law of assumption is experiecning an enoutmous amount of myth, disinformation, and prejudice, and as always, mind controllers like it that way, because it makes you more vulnerable. This is nothing new. It happens in all religions, and it happens in LOA too.
The Distorted Notion of God
One troubling aspect of the Law of Assumption is the way it manipulates the concept of God. Followers often confront those using traditional religious terminology, pressuring them to adopt a godless worldview. This approach aims to establish the individual or the coach as the ultimate authority of YOUR definition of God. The distortion of the concept of God to fit the egoic mind reflects a shallow understanding of spirituality. You can dive deeply into the Law of Assumption and at no point do you have to compromis or alter your idea of God to fit someone eles prejudice. Remain in power of your idea of God, it will evolve and change throughout your life, and will not affect your “manifestations”. Find comfort in your viewpoint. Rely on religion if you like, it is not mutually exclusive.
Ultimately, while oneness, the core of the Law of Assumption, fosters a sense of unity and empathy, the shallow version is more likened to solipsism, a limiting and harmful distortion of reality that isolates the individual from the richness of the world and other people. The egoic mind stands as a wall between oneness consiousness and the individual. This does not have to be you, you can embrace the the depths of your own soul.
Law of Assumption vs. Authentic Teachings
Contrary to the claims of being grounded in science or authentic spiritual teachings, the Law of Assumption coaches often deviate from these sources. Authentic spiritual paths, like Vedanta, or Kabbalah, emphasize a deep and intimate connection with God and the importance of genuine growth. In contrast, the Law of Assumption Z-coaches tends to reduce spirituality to a means of material acquisition and self-obsession and nothing else.
Manifesting: A Materialistic and Superficial Approach?
Manifesting is often approached with a materialistic mindset. The focus on obtaining possessions, or specific relationships, oversimplifies the complexities of life. This reductionist approach icreates a distorted sense of self-worth, not to mention a borish personality. You can do better, you can have depth, be authentic and interisting, AND manifest your dreams, you do not have become a bliss-ninny or toxic materialist. The core teachings stem from deeper more complex traditions, and this reductionist apprach has become a new cult-like religion. It can be as simple as you like, but it can also be as deep as you like. There is no one size fits all.
Is It Necessary to Embrace Blind Positivity to Practice Manifestation?
There’s a prevalent misconception that to be a successful “manifester,” one must embody a persona of relentless positivity or a blissful, attitude. Additionally, some believe that using the word “God” is discouraged or should be replaced with more secular or personal terms. However, embracing genuine beliefs, YOUR OWN personal undertsanding is all you need. You don’t have to be bullied into toxic positivity, or to adopt someone else’s beliefs. Acknowledging your own interpretation of the word “God,” and allowing for a range of emotions and experiences are key to effective manifestation.
Freedom to Use the Term “God”
The term “God” holds immense personal and cultural significance for many individuals. In the realm of manifestation, individuals should feel free to use the term “God” if it aligns with their beliefs and enhances their manifestation practice. The focus should be on personal connection and belief systems, rather than conforming to a one-size-fits-all definition.
Additionally, the exploitation of these principles is a cause for concern. Coaches and influencers within this space often exploit vulnerable individuals seeking change or improvement in their lives, failing to notice when real mental health issues need to be addressed, or when chasing a specific person has become an obsession etc. This opportunistic approach exploits genuine desires for happiness, potentially causing emotional and financial harm to those seeking guidance.
Manifestation Beyond Stereotypes
Breaking free from stereotypes and preconceived notions about manifestation allows for a more expansive approach. Manifestation IS expansion. Manifestation is also deeply personal, and there’s no need to fit into a specific mold or act contrary to your authentic self to engage in it effectively. All of those zombie-cult approaches are LIMITING BELIEFS.
The Law of Assumption in its CULT FORM, represent a shallow and potentially damaging interpretation of spirituality and self-improvement. Encouraging only materialistic desires and exploiting vulnerable individuals, it falls short of authentic spiritual teachings and scientific understanding. Nothing “bad” will happen, if you dare prioritize a holistic and approach to your personal growth and spirituality.
So CAN you be materialistic and reductionist? Absolutely! But you don’t HAVE to. It is NOT a requirement for manifesting.
