There is a discussion thread here
(if you're interested)
The purpose of this thread is to provide tips and techniques regarding manifesting your dream life.
The first two things to always remember are: 1)
Anything and Everything is possible. Literally. The only blockades are the ones that you yourself create. If you find yourself approaching your desire as "impossible", just realize you are making it impossible by continuously choosing to view it as such. It's not impossible. Nothing is. Take a breath, remember anything is possible. Anything. 2)
You are manifesting 24/7. There is never ever a time when you aren't manifesting. Reality is the mirror for your consciousness. Whatever state your consciousness is in, is reflected in your reality. Paying attention to your attitude, your thoughts and your feelings will allow you to see that your reality is in fact reflecting everything, everything going on inside of you. Always.
FIGURE OUT, EXACTLY WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WANT/WANT TO BE
You may already know, you may not already know. Sometimes the best way to figure it out, is to pay attention to the negative judgments you make about yourself and your life. Write down absolutely everything you want in a journal. Do it from the positive. Don't write "I don't want to be fat anymore!" Write "I have a great body!" Don't write "I don't want to be socially awkward!" write "I am a fun, social person". Figuring out exactly what you want is the first step to controlling your life and getting the life of your dreams.
DAY DREAMING vs VISUALIZATION
Day dreaming is picturing your desire happening in the future. This is not what you want to do. As we've already established, reality is the mirror for your state of consciousness. Seeing it in the future will only reflect exactly that back to you: Your desire existing in the future! And not now! And the longer you do that, the longer your desire will stay in the future! You want your desire right now don't you?
"Want" will also be reflected back to you, as you "Wanting" your desire, meaning that you don't have it.
Visualizing is different. The purpose behind visualization is perceiving yourself to already BE exactly what you want to be. It's perceiving yourself as having right now exactly what you want to have. Your mirror will then reflect that back to you! PLAY PRETEND for 15 minutes a day. Pretend to already be that person, right now. FEEL IT! Pretend to already have those things that you want, RIGHT NOW. Feel it to be real right now! What would it feel like if you had that one million dollars right now? There'd be no worries about whether or not it was coming your way, because you'd already have it! Those worries regarding your intention wouldn't be there, because you'd already have it. And your mirror will reflect this.
The best times to do this, are in the morning immediately after waking up, as you're falling asleep at night, and after meditation, while you're still in that meditative state.
CELEBRATE YOUR MANIFESTING ABILITY
Spend 5 minutes a day, having a little mini celebration for how terrific of a manifestor you are. Even if you are only manifesting negative things into your life, CELEBRATE manifesting, and you're amazing manifesting powers. Do some activity purposely designated for celebrating your manifestation powers. Once a week, do it on a larger scale. Treat yourself to something, like a glass of wine, or something that you enjoy, and remember that you are doing it to celebrate your manifestation powers. This will super charge your manifesting, because like we've established, reality is your mirror. Celebrating how awesome you are at manifesting will be reflected back to you, especially if you are the type of person that is used to beating themselves up for your desires not manifesting. Celebrate it!
PREPARE FOR YOUR DESIRE'S MANIFESTATION
Be like an expecting mother, arranging her unborn child's bedroom. Painting the walls, building a crib, filling the room with stuffed animals, hanging cartoon paintings on the wall..you get the idea. Prepare your environment and yourself for your intention to manifest. What can you do to make space and to prepare your environment for your desire? If you are trying to manifest a new car, clean out your garage. Are you trying to manifest one million dollars? Well, how about researching different banks? Go down to the mall, and find all the things you are going to
buy as soon as your "baby" arrives.
Actions like preparing your environment for your desires arrival act as triggers for your desires to manifest in the physical realm. Literally, any action could be used as a trigger for your intentions, as long as you believed in what you were doing. You could hop up and down 25 times after telling yourself "Hopping up and down 25 times will trigger the manifestation of my desire." As long as you believe in it fully and confidently, that action will be a trigger. I personally find it's best to keep the action tied to the desire some how, because it's easier to be confident in the action. So go clean that garage! Your new car is coming and it needs some space! Go research what banks would be best to hold your large sum of money!
FACE YOUR FEARS
We sometimes harbor fears towards our desires and the manifestation of our desires. Classic LOA material has convinced us to ignore those dirty negative feelings/thoughts and stay focused on our desires. But this doesn't help. Ignoring our negative thoughts and feelings does not make them go away, it simply keeps us willfully ignorant to their existence. By facing, and paying attention to those fears and negative feelings/thoughts, we gain understanding as to why exactly we have that fear, and we begin to understand how that fear has been manifesting into our reality. Feeling it dissolves the feeling, sheds light on the conditioned thought cycles that created and sustained that feeling, and it allows us move beyond it. Ignoring the fear will not get rid of it, nor will it stop it from manifesting into your reality, it only serves to keep you ignorant of your fear.
Spend some time thinking about your desire, and see how it feels to you. If you desire money, meditate on "money" for a little while and pay attention to the feelings focusing on "money" produces. The way you feel towards money, is exactly what your experience of money is. So figure out how you really feel about money, and why you feel that way. This will help you bring to light thoughts that may be contradicting your intentions, and therefor keeping them from manifesting. Remember, anything is possible.
Let's say you want to manifest money. If you find yourself worrying where the money is going to come from, it's because you are afraid the money won't manifest, so then it won't. If you want to win the lottery, and you avoid checking the results of the drawings, it's because you are afraid of being let down by not winning. If you want a girlfriend/boyfriend but you are afraid to ask anybody out, it's because you're afraid they will say no. These fears make us stand in place in regards to manifesting our desires. The only way to break on through, is to face those fears, as scary as it might be. Meditate on them, pay attention to them, feel them, bring them from the darkness and into the light and dissolve them! You can't fight your fears! You have to face them if you no longer want to lug them around, and have them reflect back to you in your mirror.
