I don't see believing and knowing so separate from each other.
I know the Sun comes up in the morning, and still I believe it will come up again tomorrow. I have no way of knowing it will absolutely come up tomorrow. It's made of hydrogen. It could explode overnight for all I know!
I know the LOA works because I've witnessed it through people I know, and I've read or heard about the countless experiences of others. Like CaterpillarWoman says, I know it works for other people. I have experienced it happening somewhat for myself, too. So I know there's something to it. I have to, then, figure out to believe it to the same degree as I believe the Sun will rise, or a chair will support me when I sit upon it.

I think one has to get to an even deeper level of who than even what you've said. The surface, false, ego self, which is where those blocks to abundance exist, are what you want to override; those are not inherently who you are, right? When we accept who and what we inherently are, there is nothing that needs to be overridden.
If you really can override who you inherently are,
| You and I must realize that having not happened is not more powerful than it does happen. We just have yet to "align" ourselves with the experience of it, because like all these things we discuss here, personal experience is always the most convincing convincer.

One thing I'm trying to avoid is making too many statements like, "I can't seem to create/manifest _______", even if that's "true" of my present experience. The more I say it or type it, the more I'm thinking it, which is the opposite of what I intend.
I'm replacing those thoughts with "What if? up" questions like, "What if I suddenly started manifesting stuff easily?" This idea should not seem too far fetched even to the most troubled manifestor, because anyone can win a lottery prize. (And there are other ways money can suddenly come from "nowhere," that are easy for the logical brain to accept.) Asking questions like that allows natural forces to provide whatever great response fits for me in that moment.
