(The Idea of) Manifestation, Before and After

(The Idea of) Manifestation, Before and After

Do you put more time into thinking about your desire manifesting rather than living with it after it does?

The need for manifestation can be strong enough to tempt one into focusing on the manifestation part alone…but what happens after?

When one chooses to focus on the manifestation part alone, they are guided by need instead of love. True love for one’s desired life allows for seeing oneself living that life instead of just experiencing a high from a desire manifested.

When you think about receiving or living your desired reality, are you honest with yourself? Do you want to just receive your desired reality or do you want to live it every day? Do you see the difference?

How Happy is Your Social Life?

How Happy is Your Social Life?

Does your social life make you happy and help your manifestations?

A social life is an important part of happiness. Our friends are the people we love to share a great deal of life with – they support us, comfort us when we need it and challenge us when necessary. They love us and we love them. The people we work with, our family members we are close with and the people we date can all be a part of our social lives.

Some like an active social life and others prefer a calmer one. Some like to engage in calming activities with their friends, others like to engage in long conversations and often while some others enjoy living various adventures with their friends on a regular basis. Some like to surround themselves with many new people while others prefer spending time with their closest friends. There are many possible scenarios out there and they work for different people.

I like an active social life. I love my friends who live all around the world and I love traveling to see them only to spend time together and create new memories. In its essence, that is what we’re doing – no matter what it is we do, we will have created new memories if we make sure to have fun. My friends vary in age, nationality, occupation and residence but the one thing they all have in common is an open, heart-driven personality. This core character trait matches their different personalities in various ways, making them exactly who they are.

Who are the individuals you choose to spend your time with?

Just like with relationships, you will easily attract the friendships you feel comfortable having, want to have, believe you CAN have and feel good enough to have. You get what you believe you deserve so think the best of yourself!

Did you know…

When it comes to your manifestations, friends can help you let go. Think about this – who would you turn to for distraction and a reboot of gratitude after they remind you how amazing your life is already?

Rely on your friends. Let them remind you of everything you have. Share experiences, have fun and laugh together. Appreciate each other.

Surround yourself with people you genuinely like, those who make you feel great, and you can’t go wrong. Whether your social life consists of a few close friends or many people you enjoy spending time with, be happy and laugh with them. You will be in the moment completely and won’t feel the need for anything else.

Happiness in the moment brings future happiness just waiting to be experienced.

The Time Spent Focusing on My Desire

The Time Spent Focusing on My Desire

Many spend much time focused on the negative thoughts connected to their desire instead of the positive thoughts about it; these individuals sometimes wonder how exactly to feel good about their desire if they start from the place of not believing in it.

What I find is,

When one spends consistently positive thoughts on your desire, one naturally lets go to manifest. Visualization, heart energy or just sheer happiness connected to the thoughts of having one’s desire in one’s life make a manifestation happen and if you feel unable to manifest now, just keep going back to your positive thoughts until you do.

Eventually, you’ll know it’s yours and let it go happily.

When you think continuously happily (or just do so briefly before being able to naturally let go), you win. Just think positive thoughts about having your desire and everything will fall into place. Your feelings will influence your thought process and your expectations so as to cause manifestation.

When continuously focused on the positive thoughts, you automatically feel like it’s going to happen. This continuity might be short lasting before you actually manifest but for as long as you love what you desired, it will stay in your life while making you happy.

When you think about having your desire, do you feel uneasy? Do you have doubts about its ability to make you happy or, do you feel disappointed that the “chase” is now over and your desire is yours, changing your life, creating the mystery no longer? Have you ever had that feeling?

There are various reasons as to why you might not be feeling happy and comfortable with the awareness of having your desire but remember – if you don’t feel comfortable with it now, you wouldn’t even after its manifestation. If you still want to manifest any specific desire, boost your positive feelings with gratitude for having manifested that desire, as if you have already. Don’t be afraid to be creative and use your imagination in order to achieve this feeling.

Be comfortable with your thoughts and your ideal reality.

LoA and Life Goals

LoA and Life Goals

I want to share with you the story of a friend of mine who used LoA in her life simply by immersing herself into positive feelings and believing she would get everything she wanted, when she wanted it.

Before I started bouncing around Europe and USA, we went to school together. We met at the age of nine when I changed schools. As it turned out, we also lived in the same building. Soon, we were good friends.

We kept in touch throughout our lives and at the age of twenty-five, I attended her wedding. This was a major life event she had manifested at the exact time she intended it.

Years earlier, she had decided she wanted to be married by the age of twenty-five. Having made the decision, she was sure her desire would manifest. She moved on with her life, enjoying work, friends and family, having fun and feeling grateful for everything she had.

When we were twenty-four, she informed me she was getting married. Informing me of the time period to give me a chance to plan my trip from abroad, I was absolutely thrilled. The wedding took place two months after her 25th birthday.

Another goal she had was to be a mother by the time she turned thirty. However, after the wedding, she was putting a great deal of importance on this goal and its manifestation. She then realized she had developed attachment to her goal and was worrying about its manifestation, preventing her from enjoying any thought she had about it. This was out of character for her.

She was a person who had used LoA effortlessly in life but had now realized she was using it incorrectly.

Attachment to one’s desire which means noticing it missing and allowing that to lower one’s vibration prevents the said desire from manifesting. In order to manifest, one must let go.

Then, she said to herself,

“I have to relax. This is going to happen but I have to relax. If it happens now, great; if not, it’ll happen when it happens.”

After that, her pregnancy happened almost immediately.

This magnificently simple story describes the essence of LoA. This is all we need to do in order to manifest. She has since used LoA to improve circumstances at work and manifest many positive circumstances for her family. She doesn’t believe anything to be impossible but knows that everything in life is a matter of choice.

This is simply all we need to do.

Getting to Know Me

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.

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

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.

Love Your Manifestation!

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. 

Take the Responsibility and Raise Your Vibration!

Take the Responsibility and Raise Your Vibration!

When evaluating our negative thoughts, their origins and current form, we may be tempted to blame our pasts, parents, exes or misfortunes for all our limiting beliefs.

The truth is, everything one allows into one’s belief system creates their reality. One’s past, parents, exes or misfortunes were merely the vehicles offering specific beliefs which are one’s choice to accept or reject.

Taking responsibility for your limiting beliefs which attracted your experiences is a great way to raise your vibration. No matter what it takes, you may choose to hold onto the negative feelings or break free from them. If you genuinely want to and know that you can, you will emerge on the other side a more positive individual than you ever knew you could be.

Just to be clear, I am not saying you have asked for your specific negative experiences to manifest in your life. I am not saying you deserved them. I know that fear can be paralyzing and I don’t blame you for being unable to escape it at certain times in your life. I am merely saying that where you are today is the only thing that matters right now. From here, you can create any kind of life you want. If you genuinely want to be happy, you can and will achieve your bliss. If you genuinely desire to overcome your troubles, you can.

I’ve experienced breakups, unemployment, living in a place I hated profoundly and insecurities. Once admitting that I’ve attracted these things into my life with my temporarily negative attitude, I was already on my way to fixing them.

Once I admitted to myself that I felt guilty about not genuinely wanting to be with a boyfriend, having second thoughts, that I picked fights with him because I wanted out and made mistakes (having not loved him enough), I could make peace with a break-up and move on.

Once I became grateful for being unemployed, having all the time in the world to spend with my friends, family and dogs, go to the gym and travel for pleasure as much as I wanted to, I would find employment according to my exact specifications. During this time, I always knew that the job was mine already, already on its way to me. I just knew. That was all I needed.

Once I became determined to find the good aspects of living in a specific place which I practically hated, I got the opportunity to move. I decided to make friends, tutor students, learn to play drums and join a choir. I was also Suddenly, I got to miss school for a while and during this absence, I found out my family was to move away. I was beyond grateful.

Any and every insecurity I’d ever experienced ended when I decided it would – that was how much I wanted to be confident and happy. I knew who I wanted to be and filled this idea with pure passion. This is why having the clearest possible idea of what you truly desire is vital to your success – knowing what you want and how you want to feel can only be experienced without resistance once it resonates with your heart.

Does this sound familiar?

Taking responsibility for your past comes down to making peace with it and leaving it behind instead of bringing it back into your reality. It comes down to being unburdened by it or simply taking all of its positive aspects into your present – nothing else. The “taking responsibility” part comes down to one decision and much positive recognition to follow.

Do you feel that a negative experience from your past is preventing you from being yourself?

If a negative experience you once went through was simply too painful to attach gratitude to, finding only one positive outcome it had will already raise your vibration. Maybe your negative experience made you stronger. Maybe it raised your awareness of specific issues in the world and motivated you to help others. Ultimately, will you break free from the prison of this negative experience and claim your happiness? Because you deserve it.

If you think you can’t, consider the benefits your present situation of being stuck brings.

None. You already knew this. Now, imagine how amazing you would feel if you overcame your negative experience – don’t you think you deserve that much happiness?

Recognizing one positive outcome that came out of your negative experience is enough. It might even be enough for you to entirely make peace with the said experience.

Once you’ve made peace with your past and taken responsibility for your thoughts, fears and actions, you can put all the passion in the world into your desire.

That is how I often create.

Everything I received rapidly, I’d put endless passion into. If I couldn’t see the way something would happen, I would decide that a miracle would occur. I rely on my decisions, trust the Universe and in turn, I have experienced more miracles in life than I could almost believe. I intentionally manifested a move to another continent at age fourteen. Every relationship I’ve ever been in was manifested intentionally, with a specific or a generic person at a specific time. I received double the fees I had asked for my work. Leaving the creation part up to the Universe feels right to me, which is not to say that I never took any specific steps towards a specific desire.

When you know it’s yours, you know what to do.

However, you won’t believe it could be yours until you’ve rid yourself of limiting beliefs. Taking the responsibility for them will allow you to receive your desires. There is no reason to hold onto those limiting beliefs – you already know that, too.
