"...Don Juan and Castaneda are in the desert at night searching for a spirit when they come upon a creature that looks like a calf but has the ears of a wolf and the beak of a bird. It is curled up and screaming as if in the throes of an agonizing death.
At first Castaneda is terrified, but after telling himself that what he is seeing can't possibly be real, his vision changes and he sees that the dying spirit is actually a fallen tree branch trembling in the wind. Castaneda proudly points out the thing's true identity, but as usual the old Yaqui shaman rebukes him. He tells Castaneda that the branch was a dying spirit while it was alive with power, but that it had transformed into a tree branch when Castaneda doubted its existence. However he stresses that both realities were equally real."
This is absolutely true - we see what we believe. Conversely, we are completely unrestricted Beings, having the full power of The Source within us - but that Power can only be realised if we believe it exists and is available in the first place.
Most people are so indoctrinated by the physical world, there is a deep seated belief that "things" can only be accomplished by physical force or intervention. Similarly, and in accordance with the example above, if we doubt what we see, then it is not "real" to us. In this case if the person could not believe what he saw was an unfamiliar Being, then it would not be - he believed it was a tree branch and so it was.
This is why the "material world" that most people believe is reality, is in fact an illusion - although a very persistent one.
Infants have no such restrictions - they see the world as it truly is, and can therefore see fairies and other fairy tale Beings, and can interact with them. A child has no limitations and in theory of course could use the Law of Attraction effortlessly - they do not because they have not been taught what it is. Instead children are taught about the material world. From a very early age children are given tactile toys to encourage use of the physical senses, and later toys that mimic the material world, being taught that these are reality. Also, sadly, children are taught to "stop imagining things" which is just about the worst instruction a parent can ever give to a child.
There should be no need for "schools" because every fact and information that exists, has ever existed and ever will exist, as well as all the power to achieve anything, exists within - all a child or we need to do is to realise it.
We are Magical Beings - or should be - years of "civilisation" has changed all of that - for now anyway.
