Manifesting 101: How To get more of what you want faster...
The word manifesting has been misused so often, people think it’s just for dreamers. And for those that do try it out, it’s with a partial sense of hope that it may work and conviction that it’s all a hoax. Most of us have been trained to distrust our spiritual nature.
But there is no need to be distrustful of that part of ourselves. Everything we do is spiritual. Everything we have starts from nothing. The idea to create comes from somewhere. The idea and inspiration that makes everything around us tangible, started from nothing.
That’s just the way it works; from the spiritual to the physical.
Whether you admit it or not, you use your spiritual side every single day. You’re just not aware that you’re doing it. That’s where your “hunches” and “gut instinct” and “intuition” are. Both the spiritual and physical work together. One cannot exist in balance without the other.
Manifesting simply means “making real”… that is it.
It’s using what you already have to bring new things into your life . There is no magic to it; just a simple understanding of how the human experience is created moment by moment.
And whether you know it or not, you are already manifesting in your life. You can call it any name that feels comfortable to you, but those coincidences and serendipitous events that just seem to happen in your life, that’s manifesting.
The only thing is that you’re not all up in your head when they’re happening, so they flow into your life with the ease they are designed to.
The problem comes when you believe you have to “think” and “reason” your way to the results you want. You’ve have been trained to distrust your spiritual nature and trust only that which you know - your limited abilities.
So when you approach manifesting consciously, you come at it with the same “hustle” mentality. You come at it believing that your ability MUST factor in the equation somehow and as a result, you get in their own way.
Most of the reasons why a lot of us never consciously manifest stuff is simply because we “think” ourselves out of it.
We may have an intention to bring something to life, but then 90% of the time…
we think about why it’s not possible
we think about what we need to do to make it happen
we think about if we’re good enough
we’re not sure if we’ve done enough
We think, think and think…..
We think so many unnecessary thoughts..
What we don’t realise is that each of these worrisome thoughts are also intentions.
They are made of energy…just like your original intention…
so 9 times out of 10, they cancel or dilute your original intention
You can ask hard for something on one hand…and then spend time thinking about what could go wrong and why it can’t happen for you. Guess what happens next?
Nothing. Nada. No manifestation
Now normally, in the outside world, this is where a friend or confidant will tell you not to be silly, everything will work out okay - giving you the validation and assurance you need.
But when it comes to manifesting, it’s an inside job.
You’re the one that has to change the story you tell yourself.
You’re the one that has to change the narrative.
You’re the one that has to decide one and for all, if everything will work out or not
You’re the one that gas to decide to trust the process.
You’re the one that has to be an energy (vibrational) match to what you want to bring to life. Because for any manifesting to occur, you MUST be an energy (vibrational) match to it.
That’s why I always say that most of us manifest / create better when we’re not mentally involved in the process.
Because you’re able to let go of the endless thinking and step out of your own way.
It’s not your job to figure out how stuff will get to you…
Your job is to set your intention and trust in the process that is already working whether you want it to or not.
We can all agree that there is an intelligence behind all life. There is something bigger than us all. Whatever name you want to call it - universe, spirit, creative force, God mind - it exists.
If you look at this creative force, the first thing you will see is that it likes to create, and it likes to manifest. In this world alone, the Universe is continuously creating and manifesting countless life forms.
And if we are created by this intelligent energy, then it stands to reason that part of our true nature is to create as well.
But the problem begins when we believe that the process of creation is only based on what we see (the physical). Because when we look at things this way, it almost always feels like we have to swim against the current to get the results we want.
On the other hand, when we believe that no physical effort is required in the creation process, we can almost get lost in ourselves and the good feelings but without the grounding for physical manifestation.
So the physical and spiritual are both sides of the same coin. They must work together to bring things to life quickly and accurately. One cannot act without the other.
Our job is to be the vessel that allows this to happen with ease. That means we can’t clog up the process with unnecessary thoughts and actions. We have to trust that moment by moment, we will be shown by the creative force, what to do to bring to life what we want.
That’s why you hear a lot of successful people talk about gut feelings, hunches and intuition. That’s how people are able to make the impossible, possible. By creating with the universe and trusting the inspiration and guidance that inevitably comes through when our thoughts, fears and anxiety aren’t clogging the process.
So if you’ve tried manifesting at one time or the other and you find that it’s not bringing the results you want, here are 5 key things to keep in mind.
1. You are a spiritual being first.
It all starts from the inside out. Peace, calm and innate wisdom is your true nature.
Beyond your personal thinking of who you are and your personal preferences of life, you are spirit first. Wellbeing and innate knowledge that creates inspiration is your true nature. It is available for you to tap into at any moment to manifest and make real whatever you intend.
2. Your Feelings matter
Your feelings are a barometer for your state of mind, and your state of mind matters a lot.
It’s not what you say, it’s the energy behind them that makes all the difference. You can think all the good thoughts and have all the positive intentions in the world, but if you are not a vibrational match for what you want, it is not going to happen.
“Fake it ‘till you make it” won’t cut it here but that’s okay, because there’s a simpler way and it’s this:
If you can always remember that your true nature is peace, calm and innate wisdom rather than the chaos of your day to day habitual thinking, then you’ll find that you naturally begin to match your intentions more often without effort.
3. You don’t have to “figure it out”
Contrary to popular belief, your logical mind does not and cannot have all the answers. The harder you push, the less pleasant the experience becomes. Let go of what you think you know. That’s the only way to make space for fresh thinking and inspiration to come through from the innate wisdom that is your true nature.
And when you’ve got fresh thinking coming in, you get to your destination a lot faster than whatever thought you can muster with your personal thinking.
4. See it as already “done”
If you start by assuming that the creative force behind life has more than one solution to create whatever you desire, then you’ll know that there is no limiting circumstance that can’t be overcome. You are only limited to what your logical mind that conjure.
It is therefore already done. There is more than one direct and indirect way to get to your destination. And you are already linked to the source that can give you that insight into how to bring it to life
5. Let yourself and others off the hook
Your manifesting journey is all about letting life flow through you. Other people have nothing to do with this process. Let other people off the hook, they are not responsible for how fast or slow life flows through you. You are not in competition with anyone. Take the pressure off yourself and focus on getting the most satisfaction from every moment of your day whilst you wait for your intention to come to life.
