David: There are a lot of people who watch the movies you create and learn from the books, and a lot of masters with great keys. And sometimes, they write to me, “Oh, I know everything about that, I tried, I tried, but I don't understand why it's not working for me.” So, what do you want to say to people that think that it's not working?
Marci: I have two answers for that. One answer is, are they really doing all the steps, because there was one step that I think many people overlook, which is the step of action, you know? I actually learned a formula that was similar to what was taught in “The Secret,” but for me, this formula works…is a more appropriate representation of the law of attraction for me. It's three steps, and they rhyme, so I like it. I don't know if they rhyme in French, but they rhyme in English, and they are intention, attention and no tension.
David: It works in French.
Marci: How do you say it in French?
David: The same.
Marci: Say [foreign language 00:01:25]. How do you say?
David: [foreign language 00:01:28]
David: [foreign language 00:01:30]
Marci: Those sound the same to me, okay. No [foreign language 00:01:35].
David: [foreign language 00:01:38]
Marci: Okay. All right, so, we have to be clear on what our intention is, we have to put our attention on it, that means our life energy into it, and that includes our thoughts, our words, our feelings and our actions. So, all four of those need to be really aligned with your intention. It's not gonna work just sitting around in the living room, you know, thinking about this thing happening. I'm gonna win the lottery, I'm gonna win the lottery.
And then, the third thing is no tension. Once you are clear about what you want, and you have done everything there is that you know to do with your thoughts, your words, your feelings and your actions, then you need to let go, relax, surrender. Let the universe bring it to you, let the universe bring you that or something better.
Maybe your intention is not necessarily for your highest, so we think that we can completely control the universe. I want, you know, a purple elephant to show up in my living room. Well, maybe that's not the highest and best thing for you, maybe…you know, so sometimes it doesn't happen because it's actually in our best interest. I believe it's a friendly universe.
David: Okay, so it's a goal, but it's not your goal?
Marci: It may not be the best goal for you. You know, there's a saying called, “High intention, low attachment.” Let go, allow the universe to bring you what is best. You put in your order, thinking you know, and that's great, but don't be so attached to it that it has to be the way you think it has to be.
I could never have dreamed that the things that have happened to me have…I couldn't have made them happen if I had tried to control it, I couldn't have made it as good as it is then. So, a lot of it is just letting go, trusting, believing it's a friendly universe, and that what's happening is always happening for your good, and patience.
Sometimes…so that's the second part of my answer, timing is involved, and you know, your timing might not be the universe's timing. And so, that's why it's so important to be happy for no reason, don't wait for the things you want to manifest to make you happy. When you're happy for no reason, you can be in that state of no tension because you're happy whether or not that thing you think you want happens.
