Manifestation Tips and Tricks
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.
THINK FROM THE STATE YOU WANT TO OBTAIN
A) THINK FORWARD FROM YOUR DESIRED STATE OF BEING
This goes back to visualization. Let's say you want to manifest a new car. So you do the visualizations of having it right now and already being there. A helpful visualization exercise is to think and make plans FROM that state, of having a new car. Think about what you would say to your friends or family about your new car, and events that would immediately follow you getting that new car. Who are you planning on driving around? Since you already have that car, what do you plan on doing with it? Any road trips? If so, where to? Think forward FROM the state of being that you desire. Feel that state of being as being real, right now, as having already obtained it, and make plans FROM that state.
B) THINK BACKWARD FROM YOUR DESIRED STATE OF BEING
A good technique for visualization, is to see yourself right now as having your complete dream life, then "remember" things that led up to that moment. Try and remember talking to the car salesmen. What did he/she look like? Start from your dream life, and remember backwards to your state now. Some of these invented memories, will actually be the way things happen when your desire manifests. How does it feel to be sitting in your dream car right now? Now think backwards FROM there. "Remember" being at the dealership, seeing the people there. Let's say you're intending for a new house. See yourself as having it RIGHT NOW, then think backward. See the realitor who helped you find the house, remember taking a tour of it....think backwards and build memories.
(this will be updated tomorrow/ anybody can contribute any techniques that have worked for them and are encouraged to do so.)
Nice post TractusVicisLiberatio! :)
Loved it, thanks.:)
Very nicely written. I particularly liked this:
Thank you for the framing here. That it's actually FEAR. I have tended to frame it as "belief" or "attachment" or something else benign or neutral, but you're completely correct. It all comes from FEAR, plain and simple.
I look forward to the next installment. :)
Thank you for sharing!!
How do you really view reality? I'm not asking how you want to view reality, I'm asking how do you really view it? There is a massive difference. It's very easy to want this subjective reality stuff to be real, so you convince yourself that you believe it when you actually don't. This goes back to facing the fear, because what's happening is you are just covering up your actual beliefs and feelings. When you think about subjective reality/LOA/IM, how does it feel? Does it feel comfortable, or does it feel desperate? Our conditioned views on reality don't go away by covering them up with what we hope to be true, what we desperately want to be true.
Pay attention to how you actually feel towards all of this. What are your true feelings towards reality? Is it a stone, an unchangeable object that exists outside of you? Are you afraid of truly committing to LOA/SR in fear of being crazy, or judged by the people in your life? If deep down, you don't believe reality to be malleable, then your reality will always reflect that back to you, regardless of how much desperate dirt of wanting SR to be true, you shovel on top of it. You will never get anywhere if you delude yourself into think you believe something that you actually don't.
Pay attention to how you actually believe reality to be, and feel the feelings associated with it. This turns that stone rock into sand. Refusing to pay attention to your actual feelings keeps them solid, and in place. Having the strength and the will to face them will help you get past them. Pay attention to how it feels, and once you feel better about it all, let it go! See it for the illusion that it is, and choose to see reality the way you truly want to. Face that fear of being judged and let it go! A wave of peaceful euphoria rushes over me when I do this, and I can calmly choose a new perspective, that doesn't feel desperate, or as if I am trying to force it to be true, because there aren't contradicting beliefs existing beneath it anymore.
This alone will help super charge your manifestations. Seriously, you want see some immediate results when you examine your actually beliefs on reality and decide to let them go, or transform them, or whatever you'd like to call it. When I had first done this, it was literally like BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! just a series of manifestations, that allowed me to truly see that infact these old, stale believes were in fact holding me back.
INTEND FOR YOURSELF
Sometimes while intending and manifesting, we might intend for a desire to manifest that includes other people. Sometimes this works, but a lot of times it doesn't, and will only hinder your manifestation. Well, why is that? Look at your perceptions of the people in your life. You see them as having their own lives, goals, and desires, correct? Now, if we are intending to start a successful business with all of our friends, this might not manifest. Why? Well it's because we know inside, that Tom is actually a painter and he has aspirations of spending his life painting and going in that direction, and Jill loves penguins and she wants to go and spend time with penguins and do work there. So intending to start a business with Tom and Jill won't manifest, because in our minds, we know they have a different path to take, even though we may really really want them there with us. Sometimes your intentions are just that...YOUR intentions. Not Jill's, not Tom's. You are doing this for you. You want to start that business and the more dependent this desire is on other people, whose life path's contradict your intention in your mind, the longer you will wait for it to come into fruition.
Realize this is your path, and sometimes we have to walk our paths alone. While it might be fun to have all 42 of our friends working in a bakery, the reality is we perceive 38 of those 42 friends to have different desires, different intentions, and different destinies than we have.
"Well what about those 4 of the 42? Can we still intend for them to be there with us in that bakery?"
Yes and no. It truly depends on where you personally view those 4 people going with their lives. The best way to manifest this type of desire, is to intend it solely for yourself, not for them but for you. Always remember that just because you are intending it solely for yourself, doesn't mean that you can't tell them about it, and invite them to join you once the wheels start moving. But this is your life, you manifest for yourself. Making your manifestations dependent on others is not a good idea, especially if your views of those other people contradict your intention right from the get-go. This isn't a selfish idea. You can still invite Tom and Jill to run that bakery with you, but don't make your entire intention DEPENDENT on it happened to you and all of your friends, or your family, because it won't manifest. You make the decision in your head that this is what you are doing. You are starting that bakery. You are moving to Buenes Aires. You are going to start a band. You are going to be a millionaire. Be independent and now where you are going. Decide that your intention is what you are doing. It's harder to do this when that intention is wrapped around 42 other peoples' lives, who each have their own paths to take. This is your path. Take it.
And you can always invite your friends and family along later, once it's happened.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT
Practice all of this on stupid, little, insignificant, things that you don't really care about. Intend to manifest something small that you don't care about. For instance, I manifested a really rare film, that I hadn't seen in a while. I didn't care if it manifested or not, so there wasn't much "trying" to get it to work. There were no desperate feelings attached to the film, and whether or not it would manifest. I didn't care if it did or not. I flipped on the television guide, and turns out that film, which hadn't been on television in a long while, was starting right then and there. The craziest, eye opening part of this all, was that the time wasn't on the hour or half hour. It was 6:45, and the film was starting at...6:45. An awkward and rarely used time for programs to air on television, right? Seeing the stupid little things manifest will boost your confidence for the "bigger" things to manifest.
So spend time intending for small stupid things to manifest. A certain drink or soda, a specific song, a book......you get the idea. Just something dumb that you don't really care if it manifests or not.
YOUR DESIRES ARE AS HARD TO MANIFEST AS YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE
If you constantly view your desires as "big" or "hard" to manifest, they will be. If you change it up and decide it's easy and no sweat, than it will be. This is true with everything. If you're playing basketball against another team, they will be as hard or as easy to beat as you believe they will be. If it's all no sweat, than it'll all be no sweat! These words "big" "small" "easy" "hard" are simply labels that don't really exist. You give these words their meanings. Nothing is ever hard, or easy, but we simply choose to view them that way. Start becoming more aware of the way you actually view things!
Every time you think "I can't", you make it true. Every time you think "This is a big desire, it's going to be hard to manifest" you make it true. Every time you think your desire will take a long amount of time to manifest, you make it true.
Be aware of your reactions and judgments of things in your life!
The key to all of this is consciousness, because manifestation is simply the transformation of your consciousness. You are choosing a different state for your consciousness to assume, and your reality reflects that. The key to understanding your consciousness is honesty. You can't live in delusion, you need to be honest with yourself. That's how you succeed in this game, by being honest with yourself. By being honest with yourself, you allow yourself to see your own psychological make up, and how that is constantly reflected back to you by your reality. You need to be able to truly let yourself feel what you are honestly feeling. You need to understand what thoughts are in your head. You can't lie to yourself and say "I think I'm a millionaire!" when you have countless thoughts in your head that say otherwise. This isn't about delusion. This is about being 100% honest with yourself, to promote greater self understanding, personal growth, and taking the reigns of your life by understanding the thought cycles that hold you back, and transforming them into cycles that guide you where you want to go.
BE HONEST! It's easy!
I love the part about facing your fears.
I've had some pretty cool things happen when I realized that I was afraid of actually getting what I wanted, and basically decided, "even if that happens, it'll be worth it. I accept this risk."
I was just thinking about a couple things and decided to try "facing my fears" about them so to speak -- it was kind of scary/uncomfortable at first, to actually admit to myself what I was afraid would happen, but then it was like another part of me stepped in and said "but I believe that I can handle this because _____." It was neat. We'll see what happens there. ;)
Thank you for posting this!
I enjoyed the tip on intending for oneself. But then, how do we go about manifesting relationships that we want without visualizing the other people there with us?
Very interesting and enlightening article. It not only tells you about manifestation but also how to view reality. Thanks for such a nice post. Keep posting.
Without going into a lot of sticky details, stuff has been going on in my reality that points me to continually consider the nature of reality AND think about how and why my reality manifests as it does. Lately, the focus has been on money and my own attitudes toward it. I have seen that I have always had a "lack mentality", and thus, that's what has manifested in my life: lack (only when it comes to money; I have abundance in most other areas of my life).
This thread has been part of the clarity of focus that is developing, so I'm grateful for that.
I also realised today, quite clearly, that spending money makes me uncomfortable and nervous, mostly because.... I expect to run out of it, I expect to have "not enough", I expect to be caught short, and so on. And that's what happens. I FEAR running out of money, and, because fear is energy, because fear is focus, that's what happens. It's definitely fear. I can feel it, coursing through my chest when I spend "too much money" (even on things I can justifiably say I "need").
So, now that I've identified it, I'm getting rid of it. I know this is doable because I've released all manner of fear about all kinds of things. I can certainly do this. And then, I suppose, I'll post and share what I've learned and how I did it (if I can articulate it ;)).
Anyone who cares to add their positive intentions to my ridding myself of this fear, please accept my sincere thanks and gratitude. I WILL do this, and I will do this NOW. (Thanks for reading. Writing it down gives it some sort of substance, at least for me.)
Good gracious, I came here for light reading and I've been getting hit with 'novels' instead! :D IngensCopiaVerborum*! ;) Nose to the grindstone, Waxy, nose to the grindstone...
*per Google Mistranslate
I'm too tired to do more than skim, but it looks as if you come at this in a way similar to the "Busting Loose..." and "Presence Process" approaches... :) I took a break for awhile, but I'm starting to get back into the habit of facing and 'digesting' my bad feelings...
Very good thread, thanks for starting it!
This is one of the best articles on LOA that I have come across. Thanks for sharing, TractusVicisLiberatio. Your writing style reminds me a lot of Steve. :)
Thank you for this very educational post, TractusVicisLiberatio! I have a question about it though. In fact, someone actually already asked the same question I was wondering about:
If, in the back of your mind, you keep thinking "Sally doesn't like guys like me, I'll always just be a friend.", it doesn't matter how often you visualize yourself with her, because those thoughts will contradict your intention. Examine the ways you think this person views you, what you think this person thinks of you. If you are displeased with the way you assume this person thinks of you, than change that assumption to one that is more satisfying and inline with your intention.
It's not that it's impossible to manifest for others. Let's bring back the bakery example. If I desired to start a bakery, and I intended to own a successful bakery with all of my friends, this desire might get stuck because my perceptions of my friends include them each having their own individual goals, desires, and paths to take, that don't include a bakery. So, by including them into the intention, I am contradicting what I actually want, because deep down I know Tom wants to be a rockstar, and Jill wants to spend her life taking care of penguins. In my perceptions of them, a bakery isn't actually apart of their path, even though I might truly want to intend to start one with them. So it's easier just to manifest for ourselves.
But with relationships, I'd say it's possible, as long as you know exactly how you view that other person, and you are aware of how you think they view you. Thinking "She only thinks of me as a friend", while trying to manifest that relationship into something more, isn't going to work. Changing that perception will create the reflected change in that relationship, as long as you are honest.
Think of most of your relationships you have right now, with friends, family members, lovers, enemies...whoever. They are all exact representations of how you assume that person to be, and how you assume they view you. If you think all of your friends judge you, this will be the truth. It will change the way you behave around your friends and create that reality. If you think all of your friends love you, this will be the truth. Your behavior will be more freeing around your friends, more open and more "you".
How does thinking "She only views me as a friend" effect ones behavior around a woman that he likes, and wants to have a deeper, more intimate relationship with? How would changing that perception to something more satisfying create a resulted change in behavior, and therefor a change in the interactions between them?
People create their own social situations. Some people have social anxiety that they create themselves. Some people are social butterflies and everybody loves them. It's all about the attitudes, and perceptions these people bring to the table when approaching social situations. Those with social anxiety probably approach social situations with fears of being judged or assuming that nobody is going to like them. How does this affect their behavior? It probably closes them off, makes them awkward, and creates situations for them to be judged. Where the person who approaches that same situation with the attitude of "I'm awesome, these people think I'm awesome" are going to have much different behaviors and interactions. And nothing/body forces you to view yourself anyway. This is all self created, you are free to view yourself any way that you would like to.
Well I went off on a tangent there. LOL.
Ahh yes! Perfect :) Great answer, thank you!
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF RIGHT NOW?
SUPER CHARGE TIP:
Pay attention to how you feel about yourself right now. Not in a day dreamy type of way, but honestly. Are you happy with yourself? Do you judge yourself? In what ways do you judge yourself? What aspects of your life do you struggle? HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF?!!?!?!?!?!
Pay attention to it, and realize that you can feel great about yourself RIGHT NOW, so do it! Warm up to who you are! You are awesome. When we feel about about who we are, it changes the way our energy oscillates (you never lose or gain any energy, just change the oscillation of it). When you feel great about you, your reality changes drastically for the better to reflect that!
I like the phrase, OWN HOW AWESOME YOU ARE!!
I recently ran across that from a place where I read alot about LOA, and the way it was written YOU ARE AWESOME now OWN IT!!
really really resonated with me in a big way.. and personally with my LOA works I am finding a very important to me relationship is now connecting at deeper levels. Last night was a request for more open and deeper communication from that person. !!!
Today a request for communication in voice from the same person!
I have been visualizing and feeling this person showing more of the qualities I appreciate about them and yes that side is coming more to the front!
Just wanted to share!
So be honest about yourself and negative feelings you have towards yourself and/or others? Once you are conscious of them, change them?
I desirr to attract certain people into my life, I'd say more 'like-minded' people but with no success. I realise now through meditation that I have constant judgements against my current friends but just can't seem to fight it. Any tips?
Absolutely great post. Didn't get ac chance to read it all, but its the kind of post where there is so much to grasp in each insight.
Thanks for posting it.
I also think it is worth mentioning how important giving is in atracting abundance. I think giving puts us in a frame where we already have enough, so we can give. And hence, it is easier to atract abundance
Thanks for sharing this post, TractusVicisLiberatio. I've gotten some very interesting ideas about LoA/IM. :)
What an Amazing Post
Wow! What an amazing post here TractusVicisLiberatio. Thanks for such deep insight. I've only skimmed this thread but will be back. Been looking for some new insights about IM. Can't wait to apply some of this advice.
Can you give us any concrete manifestations you've intended lately using this info?
I have found that when I learned how to be a better friend, I attracted better friends. And when I stopped judging myself, I was less judgmental of others. :rolleyes:
This is a great post!:)... I was always making the mistake of thinking and visualizing in the FUTURE. Now I undestand why it's important to see yourself as already having what you desire. The other light bulb went off around the issue of wanting although I have a hard time consciously realizing it. We still need to "want" something in order to have it. Maybe it depends on the consciousness we have around the wanting. If it's not like "desperatly" wanting but rather "happily" wanting!?
What Great Advice
Thank you. I think I'm gonna start following your advice. I'm a newbie conscious manifester. I will try to use the tips and tools for betterment.
There is a HUGE block I had and that many people probably have. I found the solution when I honestly and frequently asked myself, "Why do I want that?". We actually want FEELINGS! It isn't that we don't like our job and we want to do something more rewarding. It's that we don't like the way we feel at our job and we want to feel like we're doing something more rewarding. The way we feel is the most important thing to us. It's the thing we care most about. It is what matters most.
After realizing this I saw that the path to my desires can be much shorter. I don't want the money, I want the feelings of power, freedom, abundance, happiness. I can set and directly achieve such goals. Anyone can. Emotional goals are very clear goals. The fact that after I feel the way I want to feel, I also get what I want to get is Great! But it's less important than the fact that I will almost Constantly feel the way I want to feel. That is the best reward!
I also think that the term "Law of attraction" is pretty inaccurate. Law of reflection would be more accurate. Reality ALWAYS reflects what you ARE. That is the law of (attraction) reflection.
