Frequently Asked Questions

Law of Attraction Science Guy

Thank you for checking this page to see if I have already answered your question(s)


1. I’m at (insert your current emotional perspective) on the Emotional Reference Chart, so why am I not seeing manifestations related to that emotional perspective?

You are playing “Grow a Greater You” backward. You are Newtonian Manifesting.

Here is the problem with Newtonian Manifesting: You play “Grow a Greater You” and work your way up the Emotional Reference Chart. You get to the emotional perspective of, let’s say, “Excitement”, and you start saying, “Where are the manifestations of my desire related to the positivity of this emotional perspective? I don’t see any and, from this emotional perspective, I should definitely be seeing quite a bit of pretty awesome variations of my desire by now!”

  • You cannot reflect anything except your true beliefs.
  • Thus, your material experiences (your manifestations) are teaching you where you really are on the Emotional Reference Chart and what emotional perspective you are really on too.
  • You are learning how to listen.
  • And then learning to listen to your feelings.
  • And your feelings will teach you everything you’ll ever need to know about how you’re creating your universe.
  • Stop “looking for” the manifestations to “prove” your beliefs are growing; start allowing your feelings to teach you about the growth of your beliefs.

You’re on the path. Simply keep walking.


2. I’m having difficulty coming up with a good-feeling (or better-feeling) story about (insert a troubling person, place, or thing).  What should I do?

You aren’t asked to tell yourself “good-feeling” stories.  Making your stories feel “good” is not how you make them “better-feeling” when you play “Grow a Greater You.”

Instead you want your stories to be believable, which means they must be honest.  First and foremost make your stories honest.  And don’t worry about, or second-guess, what that honesty sounds like or whether or not you “should” feel that way.

Actually, just be completely, totally, 100% honest about how you feel all the time.  If that is your story, you’ll always be telling yourself the best-feeling, believable one.  Always.


3. I’ve written about how I truly feel about my desire being absent, but I’m not sure where I should start on the Emotional Reference Chart.  Where should I start?

Start by looking up the definitions of some emotions that appear to be likely candidates.  You may answer your question right away.

If that suggestion doesn’t bear fruit, err on the side of choosing an emotional perspective that is too “negative” and go from there.


4. How do I know when I’ve lived my way into a new emotional perspective fully enough to proceed to write about the next emotion on the Emotional Reference Chart?

There are two primary signs that you’ve lived your way into a new emotional perspective:

  1. You are perceiving people, places, and things in ways that more naturally reflect that emotional perspective back to you.  You are not straining to craft better-feeling, believable stories in that regard.
  2. You are experiencing your desire manifesting in ways that reflect that emotional perspective.  You see, hear, and feel your desire manifesting in accord with it.

Above all else, listen.  Listen to your gut.  Listen to all the reflections of your beliefs in the people, places, and things around you by paying attention to how you really feel about them.

You will get better at it, your confidence will grow, and you will get the hang of it soon.


5. I don’t like to write, so what should I do about playing “Grow a Greater You”?

You can experiment with using a recording device, although that sounds (pun intended) cumbersome.  I’ve never heard from anyone who hasn’t played “Grow a Greater You” by writing.

My main suggestion is to be completely honest about your aversion to writing?  What is going on there?  Do the feelings you notice inform you of beliefs (about writing) that serve you and ones you want to retain?  Or are you willing to grow your beliefs about writing because doing so will help you immensely as you play “Grow a Greater You”?

There’s gold waiting for you in the previous suggestion.  Happy hunting and happy growing!


6. I’m at the top of the Emotional Reference Chart and I’m not manifesting my desire.  What is wrong?

Even with beliefs “spit-shined” into alignment with a desire, you still need to be aware of a very natural tendency to:

  1. “Need” to experience your desire in its fullest manifestation in order to “prove” to yourself that you really have changed, and aligned, your beliefs.
  2. Intently “look for” your desire (as in “Where is it? It’s gotta be showing up any day now!”) because it “should” be manifested since you have “earned” it by authentically changing, and aligning, your beliefs.

Regarding tendency number one: You really did authentically change your beliefs, aligning them with being worthy of your desire, by playing “Grow a Greater You” exactly as everyone is instructed. And doing so really does, according to how our universe works, mean that the reflections of your new beliefs, cast back to you via the people, places, and things in your material reality, will reveal the experiences you’ve long desired.

So it’s completely natural and not unexpected at all for you, or anyone, to want to “see” your desires manifest (especially the first time up the Emotional Reference Chart) so you can really know, for certain, that you did it.

And regarding tendency number two: it is also perfectly natural, and expected, for anyone (especially on your first time up the Emotional Reference Chart) to feel a sense of, “Okay, I did what I was asked. I played ‘Grow a Greater You’ just as I was asked. Now, where is my desire? I did the work? Where is it?” That is completely understandable.

Results will happen.

The solution is the same as it always is when playing “Grow a Greater You.”


Any time you experience frustration, doubt, worry, or anxiety (about “where” your desires are), all you have to do is be honest about it with yourself. Simply admit to yourself that you feel that way.

  • Experience the feelings (allow yourself to really feel them, not just merely intellectualize them as in “I can admit they’re there; I know I have those feelings”)
  • Express the feelings (share them with yourself and anyone else you trust without shame or judgement – they’re just information after all and not defining “who” you “are”)
  • Release the feelings (once felt and expressed, the feelings are now simply information you can make use of rather than some dark secret you have to adamantly pretend you don’t feel).


7.  What do I do now that I’m at the top of the Emotional Reference Chart?

Now that you’ve arrived at the top of the Emotional Reference Chart all you need do is look out for your natural tendencies to:

  1. “Need” to experience your desire in its fullest manifestation in order to “prove” to yourself that you really have changed, and aligned, your beliefs.
  2. Intently “look for” your desire (as in “Where is it? It’s gotta be showing up any day now!”) because it “should” be manifested since you have “earned” it by authentically changing, and aligning, your beliefs.


The subtleties of Newtonian paradigms are spotlighted by both of those completely understandable tendencies.

In the first tendency, you have inadvertently invoked the very limiting Newtonian paradigm of “causality.” You’ve actually painted the quantum field into a corner with your “need” to experience your desire to “prove” you did what you think you did.

In the second tendency, you have inadvertently invoked the very limiting belief that there is a “gatekeeper”, outside of you, who subjectively (and mysteriously) says “Yes” or “No” to you. You have actually taken away much of your very real power and handed it back over to some mythical “power outside of you” who can “give” you your desires once that “power” decides you’ve earned them.

Thus, the rest of your days will be spent doing two things regarding your desire:

  1. Letting go of “needing” to experience your desire and “looking for” your desire (in the context described above) on a continually deeper level
  2. Staying aware of any pain informing you that your desire has grown and, great news, you get to play “Grow a Greater You” and grow your beliefs into alignment with your newly grown desire


8. Can I play “Grow a Greater You” on more than one desire at a time?

I recommend strongly that you only play “Grow a Greater You” on one, and only one, desire at a time.  I’ve found that spreading yourself out across more than one desire defeats the true value of your journey – being fully present and alive, with yourself, in this moment.  And that is where all your gifts come.


9. Is “Grow a Greater You” just another way to teach positive thinking?

Intentional positive thinking is positive thinking you have to conjure and which does not arise naturally and of its own accord.

Intentional positive thinking is lying.  It is how people play “Adult Dress Up” and it will never work to manifest anything strongly desired (yet absent).   Intentional positive thinking, however, is more insidious than not working to help you manifest; intentional positive thinking actually keeps you numb to the very things so vital to creative control over your life experiences – your feelings.

Intentional positive thinking is absolutely not part of, and never will be part of, “Grow a Greater You.”  “Grow a Greater You” doesn’t work unless you are completely, totally honest about how you feel.  At all times, no matter what.  No matter if your true feelings are very “bad” or awfully displeasing.

Now, authentic positive thinking?  If you’re thinking positively about something in a natural, authentic manner which you don’t have to “make” yourself do?  There is not a thing wrong with that.

Likewise, if you use intentional positive thinking to nudge yourself back into alignment with beliefs that are normally very pleasingly aligned?  In other words, if you are intentionally positive about some desire you normally have no issues with experiencing as you truly want – go for it!  But, for now, until you truly feel confident about telling the difference between intentional positive thinking and authentic positive thinking – stay away from it.
