I did an experiment a little while ago. I posted a poll in a forum and asked people for their experience with the two cup method. I had an overwhelming response of 55 people who said “I used the two cup method with zero success”. Twenty people said “I used the two cup method with success every time”. And another 13 people responded “the two cup method works sometimes but not every time”.
So, let’s talk about: what is the two cup method? You take two cups. One of them is full of water. You label this cup “my current reality”. The empty cup you label “my future reality”. Then, you hold the cup full of water and you basically breathe into it where you are today and how you feel about where you are and what you want. Then, you hold the other cup in your hand and you feel the manifestation. It’s exactly like doing a visualization. Honestly guys, there’s no difference between this method and just visualizing the end result that you want. So you feel the end result. And then you take the cup full of water and you pour it into the other cup.
At this point, supposedly you’ve entered a new dimension. You’ve skipped a dimension. Now you drink the water from your future reality cup, every drop of it, and just by doing that you’re supposedly going to get what you want.
To me it sounds a little suspicious because if it were as simple as that then everyone would have everything that they want. But it’s not that simple. And that’s what I want to explain to you here today.
Here are a couple of things that I want you to understand.
There were tons of comments with people’s examples, etc. But really what I want to get to is, why is it that the same method works for some people and doesn’t work for other people? What are the people who are getting results doing right, and what are the people who are not getting results, or not getting consistent results, doing wrong?
frustration…all the way up to satisfaction, eagerness, hope, love and joy. So, when you discover a ritual, it takes you up the emotional scale. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been waiting for something to happen. Because when that is the case, if you’ve been waiting a very long time, you’re somewhere at the bottom half of the emotional scale. But suddenly, the ritual gives you hope and it takes you right up to the top of the emotional scale.
Now, if you’re able to keep yourself in this vicinity of the vortex, the highest emotions, in the feelings of eagerness and hope and joy, without looking for the manifestation, just trusting that because you’ve done the ritual the rest is going to follow - that’s when the ritual works.
But unfortunately, for most of us, we have habits of thought. And even though we feel the excitement and we go up the emotional scale, we do the ritual and we immediately start looking for the manifestation. “I asked for this, where is it? The ritual said I would get it. Where is it?” Trust me, as soon as you look for the manifestation, you push the manifestation away. That is the concept of attachment that Dr. Wayne Dyer used to talk about and teach. Anytime that you look for the thing that you want to manifest, you actually push it away if you are not at the top part of the emotional scale.
All of this comes from a well-grounded understanding of the law of attraction, which I’m not going to get into just now. But if you want more information on my work you can visit my website zmahoon.com and you can visit my channel on YouTube.
Let’s summarize now. What are the three factors that affect your manifestation if you’re using a ritual? (Even a visualization is really a ritual).
Number one is your ability to stay up in the highest levels of the emotional scale.
Number two is your ability to make sure that you don’t look for the manifestation.
Number three is your belief in the person who’s introduced you to the ritual and the process of the ritual. Because if you believe in it, it gives you the hope that you need to keep you in the top level of the emotional scale for long enough to allow the universe to deliver what you want.
So those are the three important things. I hope you enjoyed this little game that we played together, and I hope you got value out of this discussion.
Questions are always welcome.
Much love and appreciation,
