Idol (singing) series vs IM
Did you see those American Idol auditions? It sometimes happened that a person was singing with lots of self-confidence and believing he is giving a masterful performance while actually the jury is struggling to avoid bursting out in laughter.
It seems to me that this sort of situation is not compatible with the intention-manifestation theory. It's like a personal (subjective) reality collides with the 'real' objective reality.
Situations like these make me doubt sometimes about the application of IM in my life (I'm an Abraham Hicks fan).
Could anyone give me their thoughts on how to resolve this inner conflict in my current belief system? I would greatly appreciate your insights..

dude you don't know that person do you? I mean it looks like they are projecting it but it could be false confidence, they could just be playing it, the producers of the show could be playing it up for ratings. My friend tried out for American Idol for this past season and he told me that it works like this: You don't meet Simon , Paula, and Randy right off the bat. Those long lines are real, but they are there to meet local judges to screen out people who actually have talent and people that would make good TV, the other people (99% are turned away). So what you see on TV is misrepresented.
So believe what you believe, don't place your beliefs on what you think other people are doing would be my advice here

It is compatible with IM theory when viewed properly I believe. It is important when sending out an intention to believe in it, to imagine it and to feel it. The people in the AI auditions seem to have that part down. It is also important to take note of your current skill level (while being grateful of it, don't let it depress you) and understand that the journey to the goal is underway.
It is the second part where I think these people are messing up. Lets say I intend to win AI. I see/feel myself performing in front of large audiences, my tone is perfect, I hit all the notes and my showmanship wows the crowd. Then in real life, I bust out the karaoke machine and while singing in front of a handfull of friends, I can't even sing a single note correctly. Personally, I would see that moment as a wonderful oppurtunity to analyze what exactly went wrong and what I can do to improve. I imagine that many of those contestants on AI would respond the same way they respond when criticized by the judges. They immediately take the high ground and accuse the judges of not knowing true talent when they see it.
Consciously they're convinced that they're the next AI winner but their subconscious beliefs are catching the lie. It is important to take note of your beliefs when doing any type of manifesting. That is why people tell you to start with little things. It's much easier to believe that little things can come into your life than more monumental things. Once you have success with the small stuff it's easier to believe that more impressive things can be achieved. It is also why, I think, Steve refers to IM as a skill. The more open minded your beliefs are, the more open you are to receive.
To wrap this up, I'm saying that from my experience, intentions start in the conscious mind but they are "transmitted" from you subconscious. If there is a contradiction, the intention won't be transmitted "until" you reprogram your beliefs. There is a contradiction in the mind of these people at the AI auditions. I'm convinced that if you played a recording of their favorite singer and then a recording of them singing the same song, they would ridicule their performance. But that is only if you could confuse them enough to not recognize their own voice for a few minutes.
