THOUGHT OF THE DAY

Feeling your desire close to you means you’re just a step or two away. Now, it is your responsibility to keep your vibration high, allowing your desire to come to you.

Have you ever felt your desire so CLOSE, almost there?

Motivation, Determination and Knowing

When it comes to manifesting, your focus and confidence have to override all of the current circumstances, “reality” as you perceive it and all your negative thoughts. In other words, your determination and belief that you can create what you want, that your desire is yours already, have to be stronger than anything else. You just have to believe you can create your dreams simply because you have decided so and it is going to happen.

This state is naturally achieved once you deeply know you want to live or just experience your desire.

Weeks ago, I wrote about my resolve in creating (https://thelawofattractionandmylife.wordpress.com/2015/09/18/the-garage-door-metaphor/). That’s how I do it!

I manifested a move from Europe to USA at age fourteen. My parents’ friends thought my conviction that I was going to live in the States was “cute.” My school friends held less disbelief but didn’t hold too much belief in the idea either. However, nothing was going to rattle my belief – when it comes to LoA, it is you and only you, the only person whose feelings count when creating your reality. Other people can influence your feelings if you let them but they can never decide for you. I knew it was all happening without needing anyone’s approval.

Then, my father was sent to the States for work. My whole family moved, to the shock of many. However, it wasn’t shocking to me at all – this was exactly what I’d manifested. I had only focused on being there, living there, loving it.

When your focus on your decision to live your desire fails to be rattled by anything or anyone, you will have walked a very short path to your dream-come-true reality.

Over the past three weeks, I have received several gifts of organic and luxurious cosmetics. I received a Givenchy gift box of perfume, shower gel and body lotion. I was gifted a beauty treatment at Lush for a group of up to six people. Prior to receiving these gifts, I remembered how easily I attract beauty treatments and my favorite cosmetics. Gifts are also one of the ways in which I attract money, as many times I end up being gifted what I would ordinarily buy for myself.

You would imagine I feel pretty light and confident about manifesting gifts such as these, right? Well, I have definitely felt just as light about manifesting “bigger” things – moving countries, travel, university acceptance, money, renting apartments and most of my former relationships.

If you feel your desired manifestation to be “a big deal,” you will face a draining manifestation period of convincing yourself it is possible to have. However, if you accept that everything in life is created based on the same principle, you can start to believe your ideal relationship can be created just as easily. Relationships and love are beautiful experiences so why pass up the opportunity to gift yourself and someone you love with one?

Whenever I felt “heavy” about anything I wanted to manifest, it would move slowly. In truth, these occasions were rare and always involved the things and people I didn’t truly want (anymore). I didn’t want them because I didn’t believe that these jobs, friends or men could truly make me happy. I felt happy manifesting short-term linkage to them but not permanent. I only truly wanted to experience them.

I find relationships to be one of the most emotionally consuming, fear-inducing yet wonderful desires one could manifest. However, what if you could feel as light about manifesting relationships as you would manifesting beauty products I mentioned?

Your history with relationships or the specific person you are manifesting might decide your initial excitement or fears related to your current relationship desire. However, if your thoughts related to your desire are dissatisfying, you can work through them!

Is your potential desired relationship manifestation exhausting you? If so, you either don’t believe it could manifest or don’t like your specific person enough to feel good about them – this part depends on your personality and belief system, as well as your knowledge of yourself.

If you feel that the only potential partners who ever fall for you are those you don’t like that much, you don’t believe you could manifest the specific person and relationship you truly desire. If you keep thinking about the negative aspects of your past with them instead of the positive, you hold many negative feelings not just for the relationship but the person in question as well. Even when you briefly think about possibly being happy with this specific person, you don’t believe it could last. You don’t believe that this relationship is right but you want it to be.

It’s OK to feel whatever it is you’re feeling. It’s OK to be tired and frustrated. Once we reach the answers we need, we can calm down.

Now, you might be used to believing only after seeing external proof in life.

I believe this particular issue plagues many relationship manifestations – when not entirely believing yourself to be capable of manifesting your desired relationship, your energy can be practically lethargic, tiring and slow. You are drained and exhausted from trying to feel good. You keep changing your “manifestation technique,” hoping it’ll bring you what you want. However, it isn’t hope but profound knowing that manifests your desire.

An increase in motivation is all you need to achieve – it’ll make you feel great, raise your vibration and allow you to believe that your relationship is yours! An unconditional focus on your goal combined with motivation will make you see that your desire is in the bag!

Now, I am not saying you will be exhilarated every time you think about your desire but suddenly, you will be focused on it and be happy that it’s yours. Your determination, once truly achieved, will have let you know that your desire is yours already. Every time you think of your desire, you’ll be happy it’s yours!

Motivation equals positive energy. Motivation comes effortlessly once you clearly decide what you want your desire to be. What is it that makes you happy? In what way would living your desire make you happy?

When creating a love relationship, I only need my own belief that it’s mine. Even if I shared my belief with anyone else and they disagreed, I wouldn’t care because I know what I can create.

Motivation increases positive emotion. Allowing you to move towards your goal without the need to do any work, without impatience, letting you focus on life in the meantime while valuing your happiness and nothing less, motivation allows you to orchestrate your reality without the need for anyone’s approval.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

We are all connected. If we weren’t, we wouldn’t even react to each other’s thoughts or behaviors. You wouldn’t be capable of being delighted or upset by someone you’ve never met (such as famous do-gooders or criminals in public trials). You would never sense that a friend needs you.

You can feel a heightened connection to anyone you want once you allow yourself to believe that you two are close.

No matter what we feel from a distance, we still create our realities. Once you change your feelings, you will feel your desires coming to life.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

Here’s a little trick I use to manifest money.

I think of something in my life which I spend a lot of money on. Is there anything you feel should cost less but willingly pay the retail price for? Now, instead of banging your head against the wall and feeling that you overspend every time, especially when you compare it to your monthly salary or your current financial situation, instead take a moment and feel gratitude for having so much money! You can afford to pay so much money for something you love

The price range here is irrelevant; “expensive” is a relative term.

Being aware of an abundance of money in your life will effortlessly create a new flow of it, without imagining how much you want to make from now on or convincing yourself that you can become wealthy. You already are! You are now focusing on the money you have, creating even more of it.

You are the one bringing all your desires to life.

The Power of Gratitude

Why is gratitude going to serve you profoundly?

Gratitude ignites passion. When you feel and express gratitude for having your desire in your life already, you remember every reason why you fell in love with it in the first place.

Gratitude heightens the awareness of having your desire in your life. Appreciating what you have leads to appreciating what you want to have and vice versa. Appreciation for what you have also allows you to feel that your dream-come-true reality is possible to obtain.

Gratitude reminds you of everything you already have. When you focus on a single thing you appreciate about your life, Law of Attraction gives you even more to love. Sometimes, this is done with suddenly getting a simple reminder of how much you love your life just as it is, allowing even more to come into it.

Gratitude raises your vibration. With it, gratitude gives you exactly what you need to bring your desire about. Suddenly, you can imagine yourself living it; you know what it feels like.

In order to work, gratitude has to be authentic. Observe everything you are truly grateful for. I once read that we should feel gratitude for the good and the bad in our lives – I say, if you can’t, at least find the good sides of the bad. Think of the ways in which the bad things have improved the person you are. What have you learned from them? What were the good sides of those bad things? That is what gratitude for the bad means – focusing on its few good results, some of which may have been crucial to the strength or fearlessness in you.

Sometimes, that one good result emerging from a mostly negative experience signifies a turning point in your life.

Gratitude is one of the most beneficial habits to develop. Without fail, gratitude improves your own life as well as lives of those you love.

Getting to Know Me

When I wish for something I truly want to live, the only assumption I could possibly hold is successfully bringing it into my reality.

If I change my mind later, so be it. Every time. And, it’s okay.

When I think I want something, it has an expiration date. Sometimes, I try to want it more. I manifest it to the point I genuinely want it. Some things, I wanted to give up and start fresh. I only wanted specific jobs for a limited amount of time. Sometimes, I wanted small amounts of money. Some relationships I only wanted partially or short-term.

Every single person I am close with knows this about me.

The truth is, we don’t always know how we’re going to feel down the road. You might desire your current or ideal reality for the rest of your life; other aspects of life, you might want to change in a few days, months or years. Some things we know for sure and others, we don’t – we might not even know what exactly we’ll change our minds about. However, some things we do know from the start.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

If you have the patience to allow your desire to manifest, you love it and truly want to live it.

If you are impatiently rushing your desire into your existence, it is possible you (only) want it to validate yourself, raise your self-confidence, want to use it to increase your happiness, add value to your life or prove something to the rest of the world.

If you are impatiently waiting to receive your desire, you are unhappy in your current reality. However, you are directly defying Law of Attraction, as you must be happy in your current reality for your desire to appear. You might be impatient for a job, money or a relationship but that only creates more impatience.

When you know you are impatient and know you are trying to rush your desire, that is your awareness! You don’t feel that you have your desire – you are trying to rush it. 

When you know you have your desire, you stop worrying about when it might appear.

When you enjoy patience, confidence and happiness, you clear your energy to receive.

Don’t be embarrassed about it – we’ve all done it. Just recognize it and change your energy into something better, clearing the way for manifestation.

The Illusion of “Steps” – The Traps of Postponing Your Desire

The idea that your desire must manifest through a series of steps is an illusion. Your desire can manifest immediately, skipping every “step” you think it may require.

You can go from not talking to someone to being in a relationship with them. You could go from not knowing someone to being close friends in what seems like an instant. You could be homeless and manifest wealth. Anything you believe is possible will be.

However, life often makes many believe they need to go through stages before their desire can manifest. These stages are “steps” others have perceived as necessary in their own lives, passing those limiting ideas on to their offspring, friends, collaborates or any individuals asking for their advice.

You will begin to live your dream life once you accept that the Universe is limitless.

You’ve probably experienced the following.

  • Someone you know struggles to find employment. This person could have also been you. They send their CV out without result which in turn deteriorates their self-confidence. On the other hand, you’ve seen someone who sent out one application, a few at most, confident in getting what they want and, they did. This person could have been you.
  • Someone you know struggles to find a relationship. They might date or want a specific person but nothing is happening. Their frustration slowly takes over their desire. This could have been you. On the other hand, someone else seems to flow through relationships (or lives a relationship they love) effortlessly and as soon as they are single, usually by their own choosing, new potential partners seem to wait in line to be with them. This individual believes in their own high value. This could have been you.
  • Someone you know (or yourself) continuously struggles with money. These struggles never end, even during times of employment. No matter how much money this individual may earn, they fear losing it and almost feel as if the world tries to rob them of it. Another individual, or you, comes into and enjoys money easily. They earn competitive fees. They receive gifts. They travel as often as they want. They own beautiful clothes. They often donate money to charity and give gifts themselves. They enjoy money and see an abundance of it.

The second group of individuals in the examples above doesn’t feel the need to postpone their desire in any way. Their energy causes rapid manifestation because they effortlessly work in accordance with the Universe that wants to give us our desires now!

One perceives or even prefers to go through steps if they feel the need to earn their desire, showing they don’t feel worthy of it just yet. This is also a trait of individuals who want their desire to manifest at a specific point in the future – after college, after they lose weight or after they get their dream job/desired salary. “Steps” are nothing but an indicator one doesn’t feel worthy of their desire just yet, or believe they can manifest it.

Have you ever tried to visualize your desire and it just didn’t work? You couldn’t see yourself having it. After asking yourself whether or not you truly wanted it, you concluded that you did. Then, you either had a choice of repeating your visualization until it felt natural to you or diving into your fears, preventing yourself from manifesting the said desire.

You might be unemployed today but have a job you love soon. You might be earning next to nothing today, receiving a large amount of money shortly. You might be single today but could be in a relationship in just a few days. Just because someone told you you have to work hard for anything you want doesn’t make it true. Only if you accept and agree with this idea will you find it to be true, continuing to see those who believed in their own value manifesting rapidly.

You are enough. You are good enough to live your desire now, let alone after you start to feel even better about yourself.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

The more I discuss manifestation, the simpler it feels.

The more I repeat its basic principles, the simpler they become in my mind.

Love Your Manifestation!

When you love the manifestation period preceding your desire, you receive it fast; you’re probably aware of this already.

Let me explain.

Every single time you manifested something without the need to rush it, it came to you fast. Sometimes, this desire appeared in your life instantly.

This can happen with desires one perceives as “small” or “likely to have.” However, those perceived as “life changing” cause resistance, fear, uncertainty and doubt many use to give up on them. If unfamiliar with creation principles, unaware of LoA or not used to consciously creating, one might automatically shut down the flow of positive energy upon the appearance of those thoughts. One might feel all sorts of doubt and anxiety lowering their vibration.

When attaching profoundly positive feelings to your desire, no matter how big or small you’ve perceived it to be, that desire becomes a natural course of events in your mind. You know it’s coming. You know it’s yours already.

MANIFESTATIONS NOW AND THEN

I used to create intricate manifestation stories in certain areas of my life instead of allowing them to come to life easily because I perceived that easy path as boring. When manifesting my past relationships, I wanted to make all the first moves and then, enjoy what I created. Many wish they didn’t have to make an effort with relationships and I thrived on “making it happen.” I would create work where there wasn’t any because a great story of a relationship coming to life had to be present.

In addition, I thrived on showing others they could make anything happen and being assertive about everything I desired was the way to go. I was comfortable with taking action and over time, I realized the following.

Projecting the right energy was an action in itself. In truth, one doesn’t have to do anything in order to receive their desire – some do nothing and receive and others do everything without seeing change.

Manifesting money has always gone interestingly in my life. I continuously receive double the expected for any amount when shopping, as the items I desire seem to be on sale most of the time. I have often received gifts and beauty treatments. I have unexpectedly found money in the past. I went on all-expenses-paid trips. When envisioning my last professional fee, I received double the amount.

I also enjoy giving, donating and treating my loved ones greatly. I love to pay for dinner, concert tickets, groceries, drinks, gas (when someone else is driving) or cab rides, donating money to charities and give gifts. I donate clothes on a regular basis, all in fantastic condition. Others also enjoy treating me to dinner, drinks or entertainment. Positive feelings are attached to money in my world.

There was a time in my life when I was unsure if budgeting could bring me positive results but wanted to try it anyway. It was one of the least fruitful decisions I’d ever made. Budgeting created momentary money limitations in my mind, which would lead to generally having less, not more. I needed to change those beliefs once again but learned several valuable lessons along the way.

When manifesting work engagements, I quickly discovered my likes and dislikes. Before deciding on what I truly wanted to do, I tried out a variety of jobs. I was interested in life and wanted as many different experiences as I was willing to dedicate my time to. Twice in my life, I gave sending out my CV to apply for jobs a try and hated it with passion each time (even when it would lead to employment).

My preferred method rested in the expectation that others would seek me out for professional engagements and, they did. I would decide what I wanted to do, as detailed as I could, and know it was mine.

I believe it was so due to a simple creation principle – that which perpetuates the lack of our desire makes us miserable and creates more of the same.

To me, sending out my CV only made me feel like I was searching for a job instead of having it. I felt this practice lowering my personal standards. I am much happier asking for my perfect gig and letting it go, inevitably leading to manifestation. This hasn’t changed but my relationship manifestations have.

Your intention is what matters. To some, CV sending perpetuates the feeling of looking for a job. To others, it is a highly positive practice that will lead to their ideal job. You may either alter your perception or your practice in order to change your awareness.

An additional factor involved in this idea was my knowing I would return to writing as soon as I was ready.

Over time, I discovered the appeal of relationships, observed my old mistakes without emotion and reassessed my true desires.

There was a time I held mostly negative views of relationships but learned it was so because I wasn’t entirely basing them on pure love. However, I would also always preset their expiration date (instead of allowing them to take their natural course, whatever that might have been). Holding negative views on relationships was fueled by my belief that I was meeting and dating men who could simply never be enough for me. I started to wonder about what I was missing and therefore wanted.

Relationships can be pure bliss, with energy clear, loving feelings prevailing and problems easily solved. When problems appear, many see them as the end of the world, lowering their vibration and causing more problems. When good times come, one may either be grateful for their abundance and lasting bliss or expect them to fade any minute because “good things don’t last.” Either way, their awareness will determine the continuation or the halt of bliss in their lives.

When manifesting relationships today, I ask for my desire and automatically know it’s mine. I visualize everything I want the relationship to be. I visualize everything I want us to be and live. I live it before we do together – I feel what it’s like to have it. There is usually one visualization I repeat more than others – spontaneously created, emotion-filled, a favorite. This particular visualization reflects everything I want to be, the adoration I feel for my man and the relationship I want to live. Sometimes, I only have to do it once before the relationship appears.

The reason for manifesting a specific relationship should rest in nothing but love for the person you want to be with. Some relationships, I manifested because I saw the man I had my eye on as an amazing person who would be an exceptional boyfriend. Others, I manifested when simply wanting the experience of being with a specific man.

I am tempted to add the following passage to every single post I ever write from now on.

KNOWING that your desire is yours brings inner peace and removes the need for signs. Knowing your desire is yours already boosts the feeling of love for your manifestation period. If you discover that having your desire doesn’t make you feel good, this is an entirely separate issue from the feeling of not having it in your life; you must feel good about having your desire in your life. 

If you don’t KNOW it’s YOURS, no amount of signs is going to help.

How can you know?

Because your desire belongs to you the moment you ask for it. The Universe creates the very moment we ask. Then, allowing your desire to come into your reality is the only thing left.

Does having every desire in your life make you feel good? It didn’t always make me feel good, especially with relationships. Seeing myself with several specific men was only tempting in theory while in reality, I had to admit to myself that I didn’t truly want them. Wanting to care about someone didn’t mean I automatically would.

As one of my close friends once said, “I know you tried to want that relationship but if you don’t, you don’t.” Obviously, the “trying” to want it only leads to more trying and unless I was willing to alter my beliefs, the time had come to move on.

When manifesting anything, one would go wrong seeing it as following the steps and manifesting their desire. Are you aware of having your desire or currently manifesting it? From moment one, be aware that your desire is yours already and follow the steps without overthinking them. Observe your thoughts emotionlessly. Don’t think about the steps as you’re making them and how correct they are while looking out for your desire to appear at the same time. That is not having; it is manifesting which will lead to more manifesting.

From the moment of asking for your desire, assume that it is yours without waiting for it to appear. Complete manifestation steps as you feel that your desire is yours already while also feeling gratitude for having it in your life. This knowing will make your manifestation period a happy one, not to mention the necessity of knowing that your desire is yours before being able to receive it.

Getting what I give has never been a problem. Would you like to do the same?

Make doing what makes you happy your priority. Those who do receive everything they want from the Universe, as if they never had to seek it out. When doing what makes you happy becomes your only action taken in life, you need for nothing and see everything you want practically handed to you.
