I always manifest what I want
First, I want to say I really appreciate every single member of this forum. We all have something important to say and I have learnt a lot from all of you. Sometimes I have disagreed with people, but they have helped me see a different point of view, and I appreciate that. I love everyone here
Anyway, I saw an interesting question and I thought I would answer it with a new topic post. The question was "Can you manifest something intangible?"
And the answer is yes. A big YES. And I know this to be true because I do it everyday.
I used to spend a lot of time trying to intend and manifest material things, but grew quickly frustrated when nothing happened. The problem was that my thoughts and emotions weren't congruent with the type of person who could manifest my desired lifestyle. At that time (2004) I wasn't aware of IM or LoA, and I was just setting goals, reading books and using vision boards. But after I learnt about IM/LoA and I went through some trial and error (I misunderstood a lot ), things got better.
What I did, was to begin to focus on how I wanted to feel about myself instead of the material things I wanted to have in my life. And when I began to focus on changing my behavior and mental habits, material things started coming into my life much, much, much easier.
I've gone from making ONLY intentions like these:
- Awesome loft apartment in Boston
- Land Rover SUV
- Trailrunning in France during the summers
- Finding my dream person
To keeping these exact same goals, but making them secondary to these intentions:
- Peace in my life
- Appreciation for everything and everyone
- Confidence and trust in myself
- Postive expectations in all situations in my life
- Trust in God (the Universe, Jesus or whatever you want to call it)
- Abundance (Financial, Spiritual, Emotional, Relational, Health)
- Connectedness to God
And since I have combined these two types of intentions, while focusing on how I want to feel instead of what I want to have, I have:
- Greatly increased my income and have improved my financial habits
- I now live in the two countries (America and France)
- Have gone from geek to chic (I've improved my appearence and health)
- Moved into a great apartment (I'm saving for my loft )
- Increased my self-confidence and trust in myself
- Have become more spiritually connected (I've improved my meditation habits)
- Have learnt to "Let Go and Let God" and I always expect a positive outcome for everything
Well, it wasn't easy for me to get to this point in my life. Actually I would not say it was hard, but rather uncomfortable. And it was uncomfortable and sometimes it still is, because I'm mentally overcoming a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me manifesting what I didn't want. I have to consistently replace these limiting beliefs every day and sometimes it's painful, but I do it anyway. I've had to change the way I've thought about myself, my abilities and the entire world. And I didn't change everything overnight. Honestly, I have working on serious personal development since September 2004, but some people in these forums have been doing it for much longer. And what's more, I spend a lot of time reading books, listening to audio material and practicing personal development techniques every single day of my life. Well, I don't do anything on Sunday because it's my lazy day
There were times when I felt like things were going slow and times when things felt like they were happening fast. Now that I've been practicing PD techniques for a while and have learnt to be patient, things move soooo fast. In fact this morning while meditating, I learnt that when things seem bad, it's the best time to practice your manifestation skills! It's the best time to build faith in yourself! It's the best time to get to know who you are. I'm at the point where I'm thankful for the challenges in life, because I learn lessons and I get better at manifesting
The progress I'm making now is so amazing and my life is perfect. Now of course that doesn't mean I don't have challenges (or problems as some people like to call them). I still have bumps in the road, but I look at them as opportunities to learn something about myself. And as a result, I have gotten some of my best ideas when I was supposed to be feeling down or sorry for myself.
I no longer worry about money, my career, or falling in love. I trust I will get what I want and I always do. But not when I always want to get it. Just because I want something now, doesn't mean I will get it now! I was struggling with the instant gratification issue for a while. But when I just let go and trusted that everything happens in perfect timing, I've greatly diminished stress from my life.
So as you can see, nothing I have said sounds like fairy tales or magic! And it really isn't. All I have done is change the way I think about everything and as a result, my world has changed. That's basically The Secret.
Good luck to you on your journey of personal development

Alexia, I'm so glad to read what you say about manifesting the feelings you want on a higher priority than material gains. Eliminate the middleman! Why waste time trying to image and ordain a million dollars, when your true heart's desire is security or abundance or making a difference? I think it makes much more sense to go straight for the good stuff.
Those folks who wish to manifest material things would be well served to take a look at what they would really have in their lives if they had the car or the pony or the bank account.

Thank you very much for sharing this with all of us.....
I was reflecting on my life and noticed inconsistencies with what I have manifested. Some things have come to fruition exactly how I imagined them....while others after several years have not.
Reading your post has opened my eyes to what I need to be focusing on to achieve the results that I want.
Thanks for the detailed examples too...this really helps!
Have an awesome week!

I think that when you focus on manifesting a "thing" you're only going part way there -- why not go all the way?

The emotion is the thing many people leave out.
Don't just see it you gotta feel it.
A million dollars isn't really a good goal until you feel what it's like to have it and what you'll do with it and how that makes you feel
