The Secret of Manifesting Is…(Wait for it…)
The secret of succeeding in your manifesting exercises is, manifest less.
You are a flower, a unique flower in the Garden of Eden. Without you, the Garden would be missing an important item, yes?
You can not be replicated. You, exactly who you are. Your dog, your family, the world, the Universe, needs you. As you are. Simply as you are. Full stop.
Now, as you are culturing your pet little idea along, just water it – with activity.
So yes, do think it out, think it again, then drop the thinking and move into the real world with it. You will not move in perfection. But if you move, and move to the the limit of what you can feel comfortable with, and then another two feet after that, a surprise miracle will happen.
Wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you, would it?
So after you have passed the limit of your comfort, as Jennifer Anniston says, “You can do Miracles if you live only 10 percent out of your comfort zone.” A measly ten percent.
Your discomfort only arises in displaying the real you. Now, please be consoled, that is wholly natural, as the real you is a deep delicate reality which feels better never showing its face, but which needs to show its face as part of the drama of the Universe. Imagine a Broadway play where actors were too shy to say their lines.
Only here we do not need to put on a role. The role is what we already dream inside. Just act that out. And each day, push that drama a bit further. This pushing does not need to be uncomfortable, though sometimes it may be and that’s OK, too.
The faster you send it out, the more crazy and fun and real it all becomes.
But the fact is, you are doing your duty to humankind, because you are watering and nurturing that delicate, unique flower that is you.
So each day, just manifest slightly, your idea, your desire. Manifest it. That means make it just a teeny bit more real. Err on the side of action and your senses. Use your hands. Use your feet. Use your voice. Use your phone. Use your blog. Use your friends. Just use something outside of your head.
Of course, your idea loves to live in your head, where the temperature and humidity are perfect. Now you move that idea out of the house. Bang. Out of your head. “Teenaged idea, time to move out. You are big and almost grown up, enough! You will thank me for this later. Do I think you will fall on your face? You bet! I will forgive you instantly. I will chalk it up to Learning. So will you. You will forgive yourself. You will laugh about it sooner than others will laugh at you. That is the teenage way. But it will be exhilarating. Life: much more than high school.”
So push your idea out, and be gentle but insistent about it. Take it to the teeny-weeny next step. Manifest it further into a sensory reality. Something you can taste, see, hear, touch, feel…something others can taste, see, hear, touch, feel…
Once you do that, you will be actively interacting not only with your own thoughts, but with molecules and atoms all over the world.
Then the surprise miracle will happen because some re-action will come from that action that you have set into the world. So you act out, and then the Universe acts back. You will have no idea where the Universe came up with that reply to your activity. It’s got a mind of its own, dammit! How can that be!?! Well, the Universe is also known in some circles as God. Small potatoes for the Big Gal/Guy.
So here, also is the lesson of why it is always better to give than to receive. When you give, you send your energy out as an action. And having authentically acted, a Universal reaction must be one of the results. Don’t expect it, anticipate it, try to engineer it, or pout if it does not come according to your Master Plan. ‘Cause it’s the Creator’s to plan. Check it out.
So just act. Focus. Make a plan. Pick up the very next action item in the sequence of what needs to be done. Do it. You merely need to mouth the lines of the humankind’s best actor named you. “Be yourself, because everyone else is taken”. Manifest a teeny bit, maybe less than you thought was required. But manifest you. You must, by definition, succeed. In. Being. You.
