Ansesutaa asks, “They say that you “attract” things to you, BUT they also say that you “create” your own reality with the law. Soooo: is it possible that you “create” (from nothing, of course) things or events with the law or you just attract things like a magnet. Is the law “magic” or is it magnetism? I’m very curious! Please tell me your opinion!”
What a wonderful question this is. It goes to the heart of how we create our own reality. First of all, if you haven’t yet read my free E-Book, Deliberate Receiving, you should do so. It fully explains the process of how we receive our reality, and in much more detail than I can do here. But this question is about the process of creation, and I’m happy to explore that further.
Do we actually create reality or just attract stuff that already exists? It’s both, actually. The Law of Attraction uses all available resources (and I do mean ALL, something we can’t even really fathom) to bring us what we want. Let’s break it down by using some examples, shall we?
We often tend to forget that thoughts and ideas are manifestations, too. This is why it’s so hard for us to think happy thoughts when we’re mired in misery. We don’t have access to thoughts that have a vastly different vibration. We can’t attract them (this is the main reason that I always advocate moving up the Vibrational Ladder incrementally).
So, let’s say that you’ve gone ahead and gotten yourself into a happy place. You’re vibrating nice and high and you’re feeling good. Now, ideas and thoughts start to flood in. They’re awesome ideas, which open up possibilities to you that you’ve never been able to even conceive of. Were these someone else’s thoughts, or did you create them?
All thoughts that have ever been thought still exist. They are all available to us, when we attune to the frequency that matches them. And yes, this includes the thoughts of luminaries like Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, and Nicolas Tesla. An inventor looking for a way to create an alternative power source could well manifest some of Tesla’s ideas as part of his solution, for example.
But it doesn’t end there. If we only attracted that which has already been created, the possibilities of what we can create would be finite. And they’re not. Here’s why:
The solution must be the perfect answer to the question
Think of manifestations as answers, and the problems that caused us to want those solutions as questions. We ask a question, line up with the answer and allow it (by not harping on about the damn question), and manifest the solution or answer.
Each question that is asked is unique. It may be quite similar to what others have asked, but like DNA, it carries the unique signature of the asker. Your questions are birthed out of your life experiences, your own struggles and triumphs and the conclusions you’ve come to. No other being has exactly the same mix of ideas, thoughts and beliefs as you do. No other being has exactly the same vibration as you do.
While you have to do your part – attune to the frequency of the solution that perfectly answers your question, the Law of Attraction must do its part, too. It must bring you that perfect solution. And because each question is unique, so is each answer. It must be created for you in each moment. This is where it’s going to get just a touch complicated, so bear with me.

An example: manifesting an idea
Let’s say that you want to invent a new product. The first thing you do is to define the question – the problem or need that this product will solve or fill. As you focus on the problem, you are focusing on a unique mixture of frequencies. For the sake of simplification, let’s say that the problem you’re trying to fix has one frequency.
Again, this is a gross oversimplification, but for the sake of this explanation, let’s say that problems carry negative frequencies and solutions carry positive frequencies on a numeric scale (Problems are not “negative”. But this analogy should make the concept of creation clear).
Whenever you focus on and activate the frequency of a problem, the frequency of the solution is activated as well. So, if the problem you’re hoping to fix lies at -22.5 Hz, then by simply focusing upon it, the exact opposite frequency of +22.5 Hz will be focused upon and activated by Who You Really Are. While you are focusing on the problem, your inner being is focusing on the frequency of the solution. And while you may not have an easy time focusing on something that doesn’t yet exist, your inner being has no such limitation.
The more detailed you become in your dissection of the problem, the more you fine tune the frequency of it. So now, instead of the problem being at -22.5, you’ve refined it further to -22.54258. The frequency is more precise.
As you are defining the frequency of the problem with greater and greater precision, you are causing your inner being to do the same on the opposite end of the spectrum. So now, your inner being is no longer focused on the more general +22.5 Hz, but on the much more precise +22.54258.
Why every problem is unique
Now, one could argue that since you are simply observing something that already exists, its frequency would already be set, and therefore would not be considered unique. But your definition of the problem depends on your unique perception of it, which can be similar to the perception of others, but never exactly the same. Therefore, your personal definition of a problem will always be yours and yours alone.
You are focusing on something that already exists. Your perception of this situation as a problem defines its frequency in a certain way and causes your inner being to focus in a solution oriented way. But your inner being is attuning itself and focusing on a pure frequency – nothing that precisely matches it exists yet.
The Law of Attraction in action
But as we know, anything we (big collective WE) focus on grows. This is the heart of the Law of Attraction. Just as your focus on the problem brings more of it into your reality and in greater and greater detail, so will your inner being’s focus on the opposite frequency bring more and more matching energy together.
So, as your higher self focuses purely on the frequency of the solution, more thoughts, ideas, intentions and even people are brought together to form that particular, perfect solution that precisely matches +22.54258 Hz. The solution is formed without you ever having to do anything to make that happen. Your mere focus on the problem creates the solution.
How creations evolve
As the Law of Attraction brings together the perfect components to assemble the precise solution you’re creating, it will draw from already existing manifestations. This is why I said that you both attract that which already exists and also create it. Your personal creations are built from the parts of already existing manifestations and energy.
So, let’s say that while in the process of inventing something new, you line up with the ideas of a long dead genius. The unique blend of your questions would require a unique blending of answers. And while the dead genius’s ideas might be a close match, they will never be a perfect match. So, the old ideas have to be altered, added to, morphed, if you will, to fit the exact solution you’re after.
In other words, the ideas have to evolve until they’re a precise match. You may even combine the ideas from several dead (or live) geniuses to create your solution, and you won’t necessarily know that you’re doing this (unless you’ve studied the work of said geniuses).
Another example: Manifesting a job
Let’s bring this whole, very abstract concept into something a bit more physical. You’re trying to manifest a job. You’ve been defining and adding to the solution side – the frequency of your dream job – for years. Every time something about a job pissed you off, your inner being “took the bounce” as Abraham likes to say, and focused on the opposite frequency. Over time, the frequency of the dream job has become incredibly defined. We’re talking loads and loads of digits behind the decimal point.
Again, for the sake of this explanation, let’s pretend that you’ve never focused on the issue of a job and are starting from scratch. So, you focus on what kind of job you want. A lot of that information is going to come from what you DON’T want. Your higher self uses this information to find the precise frequency of the job that will check all of your boxes. It then proceeds to focus on it, unwaveringly, unflinchingly, with all of its attention. The power of this kind of focus is unfathomable for most of us. It’s the energy that creates worlds (quoting Abraham again). It sets the Law of Attraction into motion, a mechanism that has all the resources of the Universe at its disposal.
As your inner being continues to focus on your dream job, all the components necessary to create that job will come together. What might that look like in the actual world, though?
A job that is close to what you want could be changed through a series of circumstances to fit your dream job. A director of a company might be inspired to create the exact position you’ve been after. In that case, this position would not only answer your question, so to speak, but answer the director’s or company’s question as well (it’s always a perfect co-creation). This is how powerful LOA is. It can find that one director who has the exact question that will be answered by the creation and coming together of your solution and his. Not only that, but it will find that director who is also ready to line up with that solution at the same time that you’re ready to line up with yours.
Your perception and experience of this job and the director’s perception and experience of this job will be very different. This is why one event – the creation of one job – can satisfy more than one question or problem. Your solution (your experience of this job) will incorporate details and elements that the director is never even aware of, and vice versa.
What about big problems that involve tons of people?
So, now you understand (hopefully) how your creations come together. But what about when more than one person is involved? What about solutions to problems like Global Warming or poverty or crime?
When more than one person is focused upon a problem, it creates a collective frequency. Each individual person will still be focusing using their very unique perspective and therefore creating their very unique solution, but when more than one person is focused in a very similar way, it also creates a collective problem frequency and therefore a collective solution.
This collective solution then covers enough of a range of frequencies, so that it can satisfy all the individual questions that have been asked. It’s like when you’re looking at a kaleidoscope. Change the angle of the viewing just a teensy bit, and you’ll see a different picture. Manifestations have different angles or aspects. So your perception lines you up with a different view than someone else who’s looking at the same thing. One problem can be perceived in many different ways. It’s the same for solutions.
So, why don’t I always get the perfect solution then?
If the perfect solution is always created as soon as we so much as focus on the problem, why aren’t we always getting precisely what we want? Well, the creation of our manifestations isn’t our job. It happens automatically and perfectly each and every time. Our job is to line up with, or attune ourselves to the frequency of that solution. The better we are at this, the more of our solution we receive.
Using our first example, if the solution you’ve created and are attempting to line up with is vibrating at +22.54258 Hz, but you can only get into the general vicinity of it, say +22.6, then you’re not going to be able to receive your perfect solution. But, it’s not an all or nothing deal. The Law of Attraction will bring you what it can. In other words, if you line up with +22.6, you’ll receive whatever matches +22.6, which will be similar to what you want, but not quite perfect.
The difference between where you’re focusing and the precise frequency of what you want is a form of resistance, although when you’re this close, it’s really more of a process of fine tuning.
It’s all about attuning ourselves
Do you see now why the HOW is not your problem? It’s taken care of automatically. Do you see why continuing to focus on what you don’t want, doesn’t really serve you at all once you’ve thoroughly defined the problem? And why focusing on what you don’t yet have or how a manifestation isn’t quite perfect doesn’t actually get you any closer to what you want?
In very simple terms, it’s all about using the guidance you are getting from your inner being to find its frequency, which will automatically line you up with the frequency of what you want. Your inner being is like a homing beacon, always calling you to what you’ve created. The better you feel emotionally, the closer you’re getting. The worse you feel, the further you’re moving away. Thinking of this process in more mechanical terms, takes issues like deserving and worth and unfairness out of the equation. It levels the playing field. And isn’t that just the coolest thing ever?
