The "conspiracy" in this sense would be that we have been mis-educated to believe a number of things. Most things we learn in school and from our parents are the opposite of our spiritual potential and our ability to attract things by means of attention/mind.
* We learn that we should "stop dreaming" and that imagination is not real. We learn to rigidly seperate between "imagination" and "reality", rather than only seperating between manifest and unmanifest.
* We learn that the "cause" of reality are the "circumstances" and "the past" rather than our own inner vibration in the here and the now. So we start assigning causality to other people and events, thus giving away any power we had left
* We learn that "the truth" is this and that, rather than something one create oneself. By the time we´ve reached a certain age we dont even consider the possibility of creating our own truth anymore but instead go "looking for it"
* Rather than learning self-initiative and self-determination and creative expression we are told what to think, feel and do. Thinking oneself is replaced by indoctrination and reinforced by repetitive drill-like conditioning.
* We learn that we must "get a job" in order to have money and be happy (We learn we must make money for others). Neither are financial skills taught to build wealth for oneself, nor is the skill to create abundance with the mind taught. By removing this knowledge from schools and university, you create the perfect slave.
* What we learn about important issues such as the body, relationships, communication, love, buying/selling/investing, the mind, the soul, other realms of existence in school is laughable. A joke. The important things are replaced with dull and useless pieces of data...much of which we will never ever need in later life.

The results from this teaching system were that in later years Harvard, Yale and MIT were flooded with prodigy children. The same happened on the west coast. The children were suddenly smarter than the people in power and a great shiver of fear went though them. Schools again changed their entire teaching to slowly pair down and eliminate the teaching of the arts and specialties and they got away with doing it through emergency 'budget cuts'

I am "replying" to my own post because I feel my thoughts may be perceived as slightly off-topic. They are related to the book that was just mentioned, AHPFOM.
Still, I think it's important to tackle certain things, however dampening their effect may be. (But rest assured: I do not enjoy being a "wet blanket" - nor do I aspire to be one.)
I've read a few pages of the book, and can see why it would be inspiring to many people.
But, as with other such books and material, I feel that either something (vital) is missing - or that the entire "truth", whatever it is, is not being considered.
At one point (at many points, actually) the author speaks about the importance of not setting oneself deadlines (for success and such), stressing the idea that time is largely a "fiction", if you will. Instead, you have to BE what you "want" to be - NOW.
That's very familiar to all of us, I am sure.
And theoretically - to a certain extent even experientially - I certainly have no quibbles with the concept.
But here's the thing.
For many months now I've been trying to shift over to a "parallel time line", if you will.
My power of visualisation, "consciousness transfer" and such are very good - almost optimal, even if I say so myself.
(And you'll just have to take my word for it, or we'll never get anywhere. ; ))
And a certain night, a few weeks ago, I had an extraordinary experience. I felt I had taken full possession of the reality I was trying to conjure up. It was all THERE - in the "now" that I was inhabiting at that point.
I couldn't see it with my physical eyes - because at that point I wouldn't have seen them anyway (because of my location and the time of day) - but my reality was, once again, PERFECT.
It was, once again, the reality I had always given thanks for.
Now, my life has been full of extra-ordinary experiences.
(I mean a life that was anything but "ordinary", in the sense of the proverbial Joneses.)
And yet, that experience was - I am aware I am repeating myself - extraordinary even by my criteria.
After an incredible hour or so - I really lost track of time (or maybe it lost track of me? ; )) - I went back to sleep and fell asleep immediately: which would be just perfect, because - in theory, at least - nothing, no further doubts or other insidious thoughts, could tear the fabric of that wondrous new-old reality.
I don't remember what I dreamt; it doesn't matter anyway.
But the next morning the reality wasn't the one I had possessed the night before: it was the old "new" one, the one that I so wanted to dispose of. The unwanted one.
So... I would say that something, a vital piece of information, is missing from the "directions".
More likely, certain aspects of Reality are being misinterpreted or unaccounted for.
There seems to be a vital "chip" - or a "lever" - missing, when the manipulation of time/space and reality is attempted by merely one's own imagination (I mean in the Sufi/Corbin's sense of the word), however vivid and life-like its results may be.
Personally, I also have a suspicion that perhaps a "destiny" of sorts does exist - and that one can sense it. It would certainly explain many strange, very bleak presentiments that I had as a child (others in my family, too). They seem to come out of nowhere - I was such a sunny child that you wouldn't believe it - and they were not fears stemming from the past; even as a child, I sensed they were coming from the "future".
So perhaps the "negative thoughts" that people are being so bashed about are, in fact, the signposts of a very real path ahead.
I believe the path CAN be changed - but it requires an enormous amount of energy. And bashing oneself for having "negative thoughts", instead of recognising them for they really are (I am still speaking hypothetically, of course), doesn't help either.

Heres my story :- I always happened to see the numbers 222 everywhere probably for the last 7 yrs or soo,,it got to the stage that i would see it on numerous occasions each day,,i kept this to myself for a while kind of wondering what it meant if anything? Eventually i mentioned to my mum about it and at several times when we were together i would point it out to her,,eg price tag - clock - temp gauge jst whenever it would show up,could this really be all coincidence? Anyway heres the fun part for me, she also told me that i was born at 2.22 am on the 2nd,,now this could all be meaningless but i dont think so too much of a coincidence i think,,i mean i tried it with different numbers 444 - 333 and a few others to see if i brought those to my attention i would begin to see those everywhere,,unfortunately it never happened jst 222 as usual?! anyway read into it as u wish but i try to use the numbers as positive reminders that when i see them i think positive thoughts and ask for the meaning to be shown to me and know that there is a greater power guiding us good luck

I dont know what it means either? One thing i do know from my own experience of this "funny" phenomenon (i say funny because it does make me laugh when it happens repeatedly) is that if i look for it, it wont appear,ive tried this,,ive deliberately went through my day(s) looking for the sequence of numbers i constantly see and guess what ,,i dont see them,,not once,,unless i deliberately sit and watch the clock ofcourse,,but you know what i mean,,then in a moment of not paying "attention" bam there it is,,for instance as the number of mg's on the ingredient list of a shampoo bottle i was reading?! try this as an experiment,,this works for me,,when your quiet relaxing in bed or whatever,,,think of something you never see normally,,pink bag with green dots for instance? i dont know? Now do this for a few days,,jst relax and see it in your head the shape,colour,texture etc etc,,,then after each time just release it from your thoughts,,guess what,,id almost guarantee within the next few days you will see it,,,on TV,,on a person,,,now this is strange,,u wont see it while looking for it,,but you will see it will not looking for it,,,explain that one? To me its like your subconcious takes your thought and somehow pulls it into your physical experience,,this may not work for everyone due to possibly how clear you can visualise things,concentrate,relax etc,,im no expert,,only relaying from my own experience of this phenomenon

I understand your point,however
you can only imagine it from something previously seen
Why is this? Surely you can think of your own bag,people design new things everyday.The point i was making (using a bag as a reference) is that when you bring something into your attention/consciousness for a few days while relaxing be it anything,although personally i think it would have to be something you believe is possible ,(eg your not going to see a NASA rocket take off from your back garden) you will begin to see it more regularly in the next few weeks,,,now,,Is this because you are looking for your chosen item/thought all the time,,therefore when you do come across your chosen object you are mentally noting it? Or is it on a subconscious level? The reason i say this is,,after doing the experiment for a few days/week,,,try deliberately looking for your chosen item,,you might find it pretty hard to find,in my experience this is the case but the minute you stop consciously looking for it,,guess what,,you know the answer,,,it crops up everywhere,,,as i said in my previous post im no expert here,,only relaying my personal experience with this,,doesnt work all the time i suppose, otherwise id have that lottery cheque or maybe i really believe i cant/wont win the lottery,why would i be so lucky,,but if our mind can manifest such items as bags,books,cars,people,phonecalls,,,then who knows what we could be capable of manifesting for ourselves?! Depression? Happiness? Material things? just throwing this out there as i find it an interesting phenomenon
And get this: Seemingly happy slaves are good slaves. Theyve pulled it off so brilliantly that people actually believe its a worthwhile goal to "get a job at a company" (become a corporate slave). Heck, many of my friends are in the 9 to 5 work-consume treadmill and are completely happy with it (seemingly).

sending these vibrations back to me, or is my faith merely a crutch keeping me enslaved to some weird belief system, and LOA is purely "what you send out, you get back", period, end of story?
the author refers to reaching a zero-point of infinity, in order to reach "identitylessness" to access another version of oneself...
Does this mean I must basically deprogram myself into being an empty vessel again? That's not extremely hard, but it definitely takes some doing. And how will this effect the intent I already have? Or maybe I just answered myself, because if I intend a new start, none of this matters?
