I get a lot of reader questions about the Law of Attraction. When I get a question that explores an LOA concept, I like to save it to turn into a blog post. But I also get a lot of smaller, more specific questions that often don’t quite warrant one of my mammoth explanations. In fact, they can be answered with just a paragraph or two. In that case, I usually answer those mails outright.
I realized, however, that a lot of these shorter questions are just as valuable as the epic ones, and that it’s time I start sharing some of these. With that in mind, I’ve decided to start a series of posts where I’ll answer several questions at once. Below you’ll find 4 short questions and the answers I sent to the readers that asked them. Enjoy!
Feeling “charged” when meditating
“As I’ve raised my vibration, I have started to feel more “charged”, like there are waves of intense energy moving through me, especially my arms and hands, or I shudder. It feels exactly like the feeling I get when I’m really, really deep in meditation. The thing is, it feels heavy, and I get a little scared because I thought higher vibrations would get lighter and lighter. What’s up with that?”
I know exactly what you’re talking about. This is the feeling you get when you’re accessing a frequency that’s a little bit too high for you, or higher than what you’re used to. If you’re accessing just a little bit, you may feel some tingling, if you’re accessing a lot, it can feel like you’re about to burst (like a pipe being flooded with water, but the water pressure is too high).
You can interpret this as a bad thing, which will make the experience uncomfortable. The heaviness you feel is part resistance (the higher your vibration, the more you notice any resistance that’s still present) and partially the difference between the dense energies of the physical and the lighter energies you’re accessing.
The important thing to remember is that this is temporary. The next time you access this same frequency, you won’t feel as much of a difference. And soon, you’ll notice nothing at all. At this point, people tend to freak out and think their mediations aren’t working anymore, since they’ve come to expect that charged up feeling. All it means is that you’ve grown accustomed to that level of energy.
Will doing cancer research give you cancer?
“I was wondering how things work when there is a group of people – experts – who are doing research on something negative (e.g. cancer, suicidal teenagers)… How do these things affect them? Won’t focusing on something negative actually perpetuate the problem or cause them to manifest that negative thing in their own lives? How is LOA being applied here?”
What we focus on isn’t nearly as important as how we feel about it.
Ok, so let’s say a researcher is doing cancer research. He’s focusing on cancer, so he’ll create more cancer, right? Nope.
You can’t know what his VIBRATION is just by what he’s focusing on. He may be joyful as he focuses on finding a cure and helping millions of people to heal. In that case, he’ll be passionate and will actually be aligning himself with the cure.
He may be bored and frustrated because of all the bureaucracy, but still WANT to find a cure. In that case, he’ll be blocking himself from finding the cure, or, if he does manage to offer enough energy to find it, it will be a very long, boring and frustrating road. The cure will come at a high price for him.
He may be focusing on all the suffering that cancer brings, making him feel powerless and angry. In that case, he may actually develop cancer himself (or some other disease).
How the researcher feels while focusing on his work will determine what he manifests going forward.

How Do I Know if Action is Inspired?
“I have been focusing on something but I don’t think I’ve had any inspired action yet. How do I know if action is “inspired” or just something I think I have to do?”
It sounds to me like you’re simply being impatient. You can’t miss inspired action. You take it without even really realizing that you’re taking it. There’s no decision to act, you just do. It’s easy and simple and feels perfect. Like when a friend shows up and you spontaneously have an amazing conversation. You never had to decide to have that conversation. It just happened and it was perfect.
If your mind is starting to scream at you that you should be DOING something, consider this: When you do visualization exercises to line yourself up with what you want, you ARE doing something. When you deliberately focus in a way that feels good, you ARE doing something.

Can you use little tricks and gimmicks to manifest what you want?
“A friend of mine told me that she’d heard of a new method to achieve her goals. You think of something that you want. Then you do something unusual in order to achieve it (like banging your head lightly against the wall for example, lol). Then you just stop thinking about it. I was amazed by this, I thought you had to constantly obsess about something and visualize. In fact I tried using The Secret several times but with no actual success. Then my friend and I tried using this method and some things actually came true….which was astonishing. What’s your stance on this?”
Ok, first, you don’t have to bang your head against a wall. It’s an interesting concept, but you’re not going to shake any LOA fairies loose that way, LOL. Having said that, lots of people have come up with lots of interesting little rituals over time, and sometimes, they even seem to work. You make a wish and toss a coin in a fountain, or blow out the birthday candles. Those actions don’t make anything happen on their own. However… if taking that action allows you to line up with the energy, because it helps you to let go of the wish (and allow it to come), then they can work. So, burning a letter, or screaming your desire into the wind or banging your head against a wall – these are all ways that people have come up with to help themselves let go and align.
When you believe, even a little bit, that if you state your wish, take some action and then let it go and then when you do that it actually makes you feel lighter and better, then that action has actually helped you align. But it’s still all about the feeling.
