3. FEEL YOUR DESIRE. If you want a trip somewhere, visualize yourself in that place and pay attention to how being there makes you feel inside. Right before I went to Paris, I felt myself in a beautiful place, with autumn crispness in the air and a feeling of love enveloping me. (I had no idea I was going to Paris at the time.) Just days later, I replicated the exact feeling in Paris! This is how the law of attraction works. What you’re really drawing to yourself is the feeling - not the actual “thing.” This is why I like to think of manifesting as attracting an experience or emotion, rather than some physical outward tangible thing. We’re here to experience, not to accumulate.
When it comes to our goals and dreams we all want to know how we can make those ideas or thoughts materialize in our lives. This art of bringing a thought form from an energetic state to the point of materializing in one’s present reality is called Manifestation. The Art of Manifestation is not new. The techniques used to manifest dreams into reality have been available to us since ancient times. The steps are actually quite simple and easy to apply, but don’t let the simplicity fool you. Just like working out to build a muscle, the process is simple but requires consistent practice, dedication and focus to attain the desired result. One must focus their attention on the right things to create the right results.
The very next day at work, I got a phone call from a number I assumed was telemarketing, but for some reason, I didn’t hesitate to pick it up. It was a woman interested in buying my old car (I posted the ad months ago and haven’t heard from anyone) and about 5 minutes into a lovely conversation, I realized she was offering me the exact amount of money I need for B-School…. I was so overwhelmed with the feeling of love, that I had to grab the table to prevent myself from falling over.
Step 1: Define what you want. Often we think we know what we want, but we can only define it by what we do not want. In the process of defining all the things we do not desire we end up shifting our energy and attention to manifest that rather than what we want. Where we place our attention is where the energy of manifestation goes to work. Clearly working at manifesting our dreams this way will not be productive.
Always write in present form. You have this or you have that. It establishes that belief that what you speak is yours. That’s because it is! When you speak in “will get”, you leave the opening for doubt. Be in your blessings now in your spirit and soul, and what you are lacking will manifest. That is the only time you use the word “will” in your speaking and writing when bringing things to pass. Only in description use future tense. When meditating or speaking things into existence, say I am, I have, I do.
From the moment we’re born, every single one of us receives societal programming: parental, media, peer. Very few of us have a true idea of what our authentic essence is and what it truly desires to thrive. Manifesting starts with taking deep inventory of that programming we’re raised with, then getting into your authentic essence and asking yourself what you truly want—and, finally, breaking the mold of what limits you from achieving that.
