Manifesting your intentions and desires into physical reality is not as woo-woo or cryptic as teachings like the Law of Attraction make it seem.
From my years of immersing myself and learning about manifestor’s consciousness, it simply comes down to embodying a certain attitude and state of being.
Below are five important principles on how “manifesting” and conscious creation work. Whether you buy into quantum manifestation or not, these principles can be applied to achieving goals or creating any type of change in your life.
If you understand anything about how manifesting works, understand this one point: everything in life comes down to resonance. In other words, your mental and emotional energy needs to be a vibrational match or at least in the same range as the outcome you wish to manifest in physical reality.
This is the Law of Resonance and is the most important principle when it comes to manifesting goals. Every other idea pertaining to manifesting or conscious creation (including the rest of the principles on this list) ultimately will lead you back to recognizing what you energetically resonate with.
I’ve written extensively about resonance in past blog posts. You can get started here.
Suddenly changing your attitude from negative to positive is difficult. It’s not like turning on a switch over your entire neurophysiology. Telling yourself to “be positive” rarely works when you are stuck in a negative vibe.
However, what you should really be asking yourself: can I at least come to a neutral position?
This is how mindfulness practice becomes vital. Through mindfulness, we can simply observe our limited states of being and bring them back to neutral without judgment.
Any practice that works with the mind always starts with mindfulness and the goal is entering neutrality, not turning into a spiritual superhero.
Manifesting is never about achieving something or doing more and in many ways, it’s the exact opposite of hard work. More precisely, it’s about letting go of the endless ideas rattling around in your head that you unconsciously cling to.
However, keep in mind, that it’s not about actively letting go by exerting more effort. Force-feeding surrender actually creates a state of dissonance. When you become fixated on “needing” to let go, you are sending a signal that something is wrong with you and you inadvertently begin to embody this as your state of being.
This is where mindfulness comes in.
Once you neutralize your limited thoughts and emotions, then the aim is to move into awareness which is the subjective version of mindfulness.
Through awareness, we recognize where we are in the moment and then we make informed choices by asking ourselves:
You heard it a zillion times—the way you are right now is perfect.
At certain times, life requires you to build a newer, grander version of yourself. However, most of the time, the real task is dismantling the conditions in your life that prevent you from seeing your infinite nature and full potential.
This turns life into a journey of revealing what is already residing within you rather than adding something new.
Here’s a snippet from a poem I wrote that echoes this idea:
You are an infinite being…
Residing in an infinite Universe..
Possessing infinite potential.
You have the same energy
that hung the stars in the sky
and created worlds
blazing inside you.
Resonate with just a drip of this splendor
and you’ll suddenly be propelled
by the thunder of a lion’s roar
reverberating from the center of your being.
Once you recognize this, the only thing left to do is to start slaying any ideas, beliefs, or circumstances in your present reality that stands in your way from embodying this truth.
Go from the classic mental narrative of: “Once I have that thing or achieve that outcome and then I’ll be happy and fulfilled.”
And instead, allow your mantra to be:
“When I’m happy and fulfilled, that thing or outcome I want will come.”
This doesn’t mean you have to disregard your wants and needs. But it does mean, you don’t have to identify with them.
Again, this goes back to that all-important idea of resonance and emotional range. You can have all the desires you want in life but what is your attitude when pursuing them?
Chasing goals from these latter states creates feelings of lack which in turn builds resistance and only pushes them further away from you.
