I was reading about something the other night (too late at night, actually) that if people focus will onto something to come true, to such a high point, it may become true: or through manipulation. It was in relation to folklaw and the paranormal and comparable to the law of attraction. I can't remember the term for it, but it was very interesting.

In answer to the question: there is more to life than can perhaps be answered by letters and numbers alone.

Reality is what I am currently dealing with now, in the waking hours of my life. There is nothing for me here. The only thing my future holds is failure. I am worth more dead than alive. I should have never been born.


Oh, come on, please don't disappoint me. You are smarter than this. See, that type of thinking right there is what is holding you back. The more you think about that, the more it will manifest in front you. You are stuck. You are not a victim of reality, but the Creator of it. Wake up.

No. If you do think it does, then you've fallen for the illusion. If it makes you content then who am I to deny anyone from believing it works. To me though, it seems like it's a case of ignorance is bliss.

How can I create my own reality when people hate me?

Use your drive to the hospital to pray profusely, I say,and let God do the work through the doctors hands.

I really appreciate the point you are making, but God didn't give us modern medicine. Modern medicine was developed slowly, painfully, and with many mistakes and a lot of carnage. We are still learning from our mistakes, but those lessons are paid for by the health and lives of people.
The development of modern medicine can be compared to evolution by natural selection - the strategy that works gets to live.
Some proven highly successful strategies:
1) washing your hands with soap and water
2) vaccines (especially childhood vaccines)
3) antibiotics (properly used)
4) access to contraception and reproductive care for women



Yes, I agree, anything you can do to prevent disease and sickness, please do. Just as I do.

But what I meant is...God gave us the minds to create these medicines and vaccines.
I also believe that some people's purpose in this life is to "become" a physician or scientist so that they "can" help God save lives and show others how to live healthy lives(and stay away from harm)

Plus,we are only human,we can't do anything without making mistakes, which leads to the deaths of many people, but if you'd subtract the lives lost from the lives saved from these medicines, you'd see the difference is astounding!

Thank You and God Bless

prayer works for me because it calms my emotions and gives me a sense of peace when i talk to my creator and i confess all my sins and stupid things that i have done that day.sometimes it even helps me to sleep better....

How should I put this?

I feel that you should only pray either for things that are completely out of your power or after you've done all you can. Otherwise, I honestly think you're wasting God's time.

How can you waste God's time when he has infinite time? God always cares no matter how small your problem is. He has infinite compassion.

I subscribe to the teachings of the Law of Attraction, which says our thoughts determine our reality. Therefore, prays and wishes can come true if you truly belief they can and let no doubt enter your heart. Not because some sky god makes them come true, but because you will them into being because you are the Creator.


I cannot will my thoughts into reality, so this does not work.


You are doing it all the time and you don't even know it.



As Bashar would say, "What you put out you get back."

A lot of people get discouraged when using the Law of Attraction to improve their lives, because they make the mistake of trying to make something happen according to exactly how they want them to happen. The key is to preoccupy your thoughts with the things that you want, without dwelling on the things you don't want, and to have "no preconceived expectations of the outcome". Trust that what you want will come, without worrying about the manner in which it will arrive or what form it will take.

I know its real because I've done this myself, and now I'm on my way to being a published author and my dream of working for a game company is coming true. I'm living proof the Law of Attraction is real.
