Common Questions & Answers:
So What exactly is Intention Manifestation?
It's quite all-encompassing, really. The way it operates ranges from the very mundane to the very bizarre. A manifestation is basically anything that appears into your reality. Many people on this board try to intentionally manifest things, situations, events, into their reality, thus the term "Intention-Manifestation".
It simply means that you intend, or decide on what you want (for example: a new job or a new car, or a new relationship, etc.) and then you use manifestation techniques to bring it into your reality.
What's the difference between LoA (Law of Attraction) and IM (Intention Manifestation)?
The Law of Attraction is a proposed operating law of nature and, being treated as a principle or fundamental law of nature, is something that exists (or does not exist) regardless of what people say about it. On the other hand, Intention-Manifestation includes the belief structures and techniques that people use as a conscious application of the Law of Attraction, the principle in theory of which it is based, with the validity and/or effectiveness of IM varying from person to person.
Subjective, Objective & Solipsism Realities:
In philosophy, an objective fact means a truth that remains true everywhere, independently of human thought or feelings. For instance, it is true always and everywhere that 'in base 10, 2 plus 2 equals 4'. A subjective fact is one that is only true under certain conditions, at certain times, in certain places, or for certain people.
Subjective Reality (SR) - Here’s the way I’m using this term: Subjective reality is an integrated belief system where consciousness and awareness are primary. They are the container in which everything else exists. And I do mean EVERYTHING. (subjective reality Q&A) & (subjective reality simplified)
Objective Reality (OR) - is the perspective that you’re the character in the dream world, and the dream world is solid, real, and objective. An OR person wouldn’t normally think of the physical world as a dream at all — they accept the (socially conditioned) notion that the dream world is reality itself. The objective world itself is seen as the basis for knowledge. Note that there can be no proof whatsoever that this is how reality actually works; it’s one giant unprovable assumption. It’s also not falsifiable.
Solipsism Reality - is the perspective that you’re the character in the dream, and the dream world is either a projection of you, some other kind of illusion, or simply unknowable. Other people are not real in the same way you are. Your own mind is the basis for knowledge. Even though it’s impossible to prove it wrong because solipsism is not objectively falsifiable, many philosophers dislike solipsism because they see it as a philosophical dead end. I tend to agree. If you want to learn more about solipsism, the Wikipedia entry on it is quite thorough.
Here are a few examples, in the "experiential ability" sense:
1. Abraham talks about how you can create, if you simply hold the relevant thought for 68 seconds. Actually, it can be difficult to hold the relevant thought for even 20 seconds. Concentration is one of those abilities that can be developed with practice, but ... practice is needed.
2. Going to alpha is another skill that needs to be learned. Some people won't really be able to do this consistently, that is, maybe they succeed 2, 3 or 4 times out of 10 tries. Other people will have difficulty staying awake and alert in alpha - they may doze off or daydream randomly.
3. Doubt naturally arises, when you mentally try to do something which strikes you (to a lesser or greater degree, and due to your past conditioning) as unlikely, improbable or inherently impossible. Eg, visualizing yourself as slim, when you're actually very fat; or trying to mentally contact a long-lost friend, or holding a conversation with Jesus etc etc. Again it's a skill to be able to suspend that doubt.
4. Identifying your own limiting beliefs is another skill that needs to be learned. Many LOA beginners aren't actually very able to identify their own limiting beliefs; because they keep mistaking their own limiting beliefs for parts of an "objective" reality.
5. Managing your emotions is yet another skill. Many people are really just captives to their own emotions. If X happens, they feel happy; if Y happens, they feel sad; if Z happens, they feel angry. And so on.
6. Even visualization is a skill that needs practice and cultivation.
