Is Manifesting Bad And Dangerous For You?

After hearing so many good things about the law of attraction or manifestation, some doubts may come to your mind that, 

Do the law of attraction really work? Is it ok to manifest what I want? Is manifesting bad? Can manifesting be dangerous for me? And blah blah

Here is my short answer,

Like attracts like (as per the law of attraction). So, if you harbor negative thoughts or intentions for yourself or others, in that case, you attract similar circumstances for yourself (not to others), and your manifestation can eventually turn into a bad and dangerous incident. 

Buddha has beautifully quoted the law of attraction in a single line,

“What you think you become, what you feel you attract, what you imagine you create.”


Thus, how to apply the law of attraction and what to manifest in your life is up to you and only you. You can either use LOA to progress in life or use it to weaken yourself, the choice is yours.

Is Manifesting Bad & Dangerous For You? 

Manifesting can be bad and dangerous if you cultivate deceptive thoughts and negative feelings for yourself or for others. 

Because what you think and feel becomes your behavior, your behavior becomes your habit, your habit becomes your actions, and your actions cause the corresponding consequences – which could be bad and self-destructive.  

For example, my friend Oliver is rich and successful, and I also want to be in the same position. However, instead of learning and appreciating him, I envy him and always think bad for him. In this case, my manifestation could be unfavorable. 

“Every thought you produce, anything you say, any action you do, it bears your signature.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

Remember, the law of attraction is always acting just like the law of gravity. It doesn’t matter whether we are aware of it or not. 

In one view, we are the creator of our destiny. Our present moment is a manifestation of our past deeds, and at this very moment, we are manifesting our future either unconsciously or consciously. Isn’t it?

If we do good, we will receive good, and if we do bad we will receive bad. That’s the law of karma (cause and effect) and the law of attraction. 

5 Reasons That Make Your Manifesting Bad Or Dangerous

The following reasons can prevent you from manifesting your desires and may make the law of attraction work against your intentions. 

#1. Setting wrong intention

The manifestation process starts from setting an intention. 

So, if you set a wrong intention consciously or unconsciously, you may end up getting adverse consequences. 

For example, you are ill and want to manifest good health. In this case, if you visualize yourself healthy and merely use the law of attraction without reaching out to the doctor, you could be in danger. 

Therefore, always make a right and positive intention as per your desire.

#2. Cultivating negative vibes

“Great intention become tragic when delivered without careful thoughts.”
Michael Dooley

Cultivating the negative thoughts and feelings or fostering them in your life can be the most potent reason that puts your manifesting in danger.

As said, whether we allow it or not the law of attraction works on us and crafting our future every moment either in a positive or negative way. 

So, always stay in a positive mode, and if any self-sabotaging thoughts enter to your mind, replace them with positive ones. 

#3. Not believing in yourself

The law of attention may not work in your favor if you don’t believe in yourself and your abilities. 

This will not create anything wrong for you; instead, it won’t give you the desired outcomes of your manifesting practice.

#4. Not taking the right actions 

Many people think that the law of attraction is a magical thing. They believe that by merely thinking, without taking any actions, they will get what they want. 

This unwillingness of doing hard work leads to laziness and may result in losing their dreams, and in some scenarios, it may put you (broke) in bad or dangerous situations. 

For instance, let’s suppose I have no money and want to manifest lots of money. Will it happen merely thinking and dreaming? 

Never, isn’t it?

Instead, I have to work hard and do whatever it takes to manifest money.

#5. Being selfish

Having a selfish attitude always keeps us in negative vibes, damages our well-being, and may not allow us to grow in life.

Sometimes, being selfish means being self-sabotaging which could be harmful, especially when trying to manifest something. 

See, manifesting desire is an art; you have to learn specific techniques, cultivate a certain mindset, and force yourself to take certain actions.

Cons Of Manifesting

  • Manifestation can go wrong or backfire you if you cultivate a negative attitude for yourself or others.
  • You have to keep yourself motivated and centered towards your intentions. (follow the manifestation rituals to do so)
  • You have to keep patience and take action.

“If we don’t consciously plant the seeds of what we want in the gardens of our minds we’ll end up with weeds.”

Tonny Robbins

Is Manifesting A Sin?

According to all religions, sin is an immoral, harmful, selfish deed done through action, word, or thought. Thus, if you are manifesting to hurt another, seek revenge, or satisfy your selfish desires, then manifesting is a sin for you. 

Remember, whenever your intention causes anger, jealousy, guilt, and/or resentment means you are on the wrong track and your manifesting is a sin. 

So, always introspect your intentions before starting walking on the path of manifestation. 

Can You Manifest Bad Things For Others?

The answer is No for ordinary people like you and me, but there are some people called tantriks in eastern culture have the abilities to manifest things (good and bad) for others. 

However, manifesting bad things for others is an immoral deed (sin), even thinking this is ultimately harming your well-being. Isn’t it?

In society, you may have seen some examples of immoral people who do immoral things to rob others are eventually punished in one way or another.

Similarly, the bad tantriks who do black magic and damage others without any reason also end up awfully. 

Therefore, never try to manifest bad things for others, not even think of this, because this intention of hurting others puts you in a negative state, drains your life energies, and may backfire on you. 

Instead of wasting your energy to harm others, invest it in doing good for things, at least for yourself. 

If you just set an intention to make your surroundings peaceful and happy, eventually, you will find yourself in a peaceful happy state too. 

How To Use Law Of Attraction For Your Good

The law of attraction is the universal law, and it helps to transmute your desires into a physical reality. 

You can either use this law to work in your favor by doing certain things or let it work on you on auto-pilot mode. 

Here are some daily rituals, and by applying them, you can polish your luck and manifest what you want. 

  • Make a wishlist and write down all your intentions in it.
  • Create a vision board of your dreams and place it where you can see it often.
  • Read or write your intentions 10-20 times twice a day after getting up from bed and before going to bed.
  • Along that, visualize and feel yourself in possession of your dreams.
  • For the rest of your day, try to stay in a positive mood.

Remember that these rituals will work as fuel to provoke a burning desire in you to accomplish your intentions, but with this, you have to do necessary work with patience to transmute your wish into a reality.
