I note the earlier mention of some people being able to change the colour of their eyes. I think that it is possible, but I don't think it's got anything to do with belief. They have learned to control it somehow. It's just a few steps further than being able to control your breathing, for example. You don't have to 'believe' you can stop breathing. You just do it.
The next step on is being able to control your heartbeat. Lots of people can make their heart slow down or stop. Belief doesn't really come into it, well not in the LoA sense, anyway. Some people are just better than others at overriding the controlling impulses of their nervous system.
Yep, yep, yep. As I said, none of these tests or experiments in themselves are in itself going to prove that mind creates reality. As you consider more and more experiments however, they gain more and more collective weight.
So it is with your personal LOA experiments. First, you manifest blue feathers, and it works, but this can't be conclusive. Next you manifest money out of the blue, and it works again, but this can't be conclusive. So you go on experimenting, you manifest A, B, C, D, E, F and G and as it keeps happening again and again and again, often against great odds, hmmm, well you get some serious food for thought.
There is also the interesting question of how far you should rely on science. Eg I know that you personally believe in God; and if I asked you why you believe in God, you would probably be able to articulate a fairly decent explanation. Yet your explanation would certainly be unscientific. God can't be scientifically established. But is this, to you, enough reason to not believe in God? Probably not.
