Over the last 5-10 years, “manifestation” has become a catchphrase.
Some folks teach that all you need to do to manifest something is to visualize it…and the Universe will take care of the rest.
Others say you need rare mystical, magical powers in order to manifest. Either you got it or you don’t.
And yet others claim that you need hard-core, break-your-back action for manifestation to happen.
The most powerful manifestations in my life defy these teachings.
What I’ve come to learn is that manifestation is actually a beautiful combination & balance of 6 powerful principles that anyone can use.
1. Activate Your Conscious Self To Get Clear On What You Want.
In order to manifest, you need to know what you want. If not, then it is very difficult to co-create.
Think of it this way — if you just say “I want a house”, well, there is a huge range of the kind of house you may end up living in. But if you can clarify that you want to live in a 3-bedroom ranch in California with a renovated kitchen on at least an acre of land, then you’ve got much more manifesting information to work with.
Whether it’s manifesting 10 clients, or more free time, or a romantic partner, do some real self-inquiry to uncover exactly what it is you want with as much detail as possible.
You use your “Conscious Self” (otherwise known as your pre-frontal cortex) — the part of yourself & your brain that reasons, computes and thinks — to get clear here.
2. Activate Your Highest Self To Commit To What You Want.
In every manifestation process, there is a moment of choice — to commit or not to commit.
It might sound obvious that you need to commit in order to create.
But I’ve seen it happen (for myself & others) too may times. When you don’t truly commit, when you don’t truly make that choice inside of yourself to bring something into your life, then the Universe doesn’t really get the clear message to go ahead and help you manifest.
Your Conscious Self can’t make this commitment. It’s your Highest Self — the deeper part of yourself that really runs the show — that makes the choice here. While your Conscious Self responds well to “thoughts”, your Highest Self responds well to feelings.
So, part of making the commitment is to really feel deep inside of yourself what you want and to emote it.
3. Communicate With “The Universe” (Spirit, God, Energy, Nature…) To Ease The Path.
Manifestation, at its core, is a co-creation between your conscious self, your highest self, and the Universe.
You can absolutely accomplish things by sheer action, without getting the Universe involved. But it’s been my experience that bringing in the Universe helps get things done MUCH more easefully and meaningfully.
This is the part of the manifestation process that the book, “The Secret”, made famous. Some of my favorite ways to connect in with Spirit on what I want are to visualize, make a dream collage, meditate and pray on it.
4. Take Action.
Connecting in with what you want, committing, and then letting Spirit lead the way is often NOT enough to get it done.
This is where folks that expect “manifestation” to be totally Universe-led and out-of-their-hands get really frustrated and disappointed.
Remember, manifesting is a sacred intersection and co-creation between yourself and spirit.
And what’s required is for you to take action. Sometimes it can be one simple, elegant action to take. And other times, it’s a plan — a series of actions over time.
5. Be Open (For Instructions, Pathways Or Better Ideas/Opportunities To Come Your Way).
This is where, if you’ve invited the Universe to co-create with you, it really kicks into high gear.
I have seen this happen time and time again. When you follow this manifestation formula, the Universe will actually present an idea or opportunity that is even better than the one you expected might happen.
The trick, though, is to be open enough to notice the suggestion, perceptive enough to realize it’s a sign from the Universe, and then courageous enough to follow it.
Yes, it’s wonderful to have a plan of action to follow when you manifest. But being flexible with that plan and allowing for unexpected opportunities to support you makes the process that much more easeful, magical, satisfying…and usually more successful.
6. Savor And Be In Gratitude.
Worst thing ever is to actually manifest what you want, and then to not notice or appreciate it (or complain about it!).
It sends “Don’t Manifest Again!” signals to your highest self and the Universe. It also is just generally not fun.
Once you bring something you desire into being, celebrate it, honor it, and be happy about it!
