How has Intention-Manifestation worked for you?
Just to start up some content here, I'd like to ask a question of folks coming in: How do you use Intention-Manifestation and how does it work for you?
I'll tell you that I use a slight variation of an introductory piece which I actually and really did find on Steve's site (it's in the million dollar experiment), and then add I my own intention to it.
Here's the introductory piece:
In an easy and relaxed manner
In a healthy and positive way
For the highest good of all
In its own perfect time, with its own perfect timing
In good faith and in good humor
I intend: (and then comes my intention ;) )
I discipline myself to use this introduction for every intention (no double dipping :) !!) because it puts things into a perspective that feels just right to me.
I have several intentions which I keep daily, and then as things come up, I add others on.
I often do this while driving or before falling asleep at night.
I have often noticed a difference between days that I do this and days that I don't.
So.... your thoughts, experiences, ideas ?
All best to you and welcome!
I also watched The Secret and read Marc Allen's book.
I've started to really change my thought process and try to start each day with some quiet time visualizing the things I want to manifest.
What I've started noticing as a result over the past few weeks is a dramatic change in the results from my white collar wage slave job vs. my efforts to start making passive income. All of a sudden, business at my job has been falling apart...deals falling through, clients flaking out on me, and just a lot of problems in general. However, my passive income has started to increase dramatically!....I firmly believe this has been a direct result of what kind of intentions I've been sending out. I want to get away from my job more than anything and start generating income on my own so I can focus on waking up to my true purpose.
Although I have been familiar with Intention-Manifestation, I am fairly new manifesting intentions for myself. I'm yet to come up with an 'introductory piece' and haven't even attempted at making one. I simply address my intention to my higher self, guides and angels asking for assistance and guiding for me to manifest the intention.
My Intentions are often manifested through vibes and synchronicities (dreams sometimes) so it seems to be working.
I have recently been making an attempt to manifest £500 into my life and I have noticed a few synchronicities and some "Alpha" refelctions. This is my first serious attempt at manifesting anything so I hope it goes well.
I don't have any experiences. LOL. I will share my thoughts though. I have a VERY hard time with intention manifestation. My husband has tried to help me learn how to do it, the reason for it, and what I can get out of it, but I feel completely silly.
Your post has inspired me to reply. I'd like to explain what I see in your post. You state that "I don't have any experiences" and that you'll share your thoughts, and "I have a very hard time with intention manifestation" But it's those very thoughts that are keeping you from experiencing the intention manifestation you want. Because your thinking "I don't have" and "very hard time" THAT is what you're manifesting. Remember intention manifestation is something you're already doing, perhaps your just unaware that your already doing it... If you could try and start thinking and focus on the results you want, you are bound to "see" some results... It appears from your post that your focused on the results your NOT getting... Make sense...?
I hope this helped...
"Money comes Easily and Frequently"
I kind of like it better that way as I would feel kind of "greedy" purposely intending all the good stuff that always seems to come my way! :o
I know exactly how you feel...
I seems to have better luck when I consciously think about what I want for like 15-30 minutes, then let the thought go (letting the thought go seems to achieve better results for me) but at the same time I half to pay attention to the events that transpire...
I put out the intention to "see" a ferrari out on the road. (in kansas city in the last five years i've never seen one). So, I thought about seeing this ferrari for like 15 minutes, then let it go... Three days later I was in a car with my friend going to look at his new house, my friend makes the comment look at magnum pi over there. I was like what did you say, just then a ferrari 308 goes by... I was purely excited, I did it!!! So then my logical mind kicks in and says maybe that was just a coincidence... So I proceed to think a little more specifically about a ferrari "spyder" (different model) so I go to google images and type in ferrari spyder and peruse the images for about 20 minutes or so (thinking i'd like to see one of those)... Then I let the thought go. Not three days later I was driving to go to an appointment and missed my turn, no big deal i'll just turn around, after doing so and stopping at the next light, to my right, stopped at adjacent light the very first car in the line... I'll give you three guesses...
To my amazement I had done it again!!!
After rationalizing what I had done and how I had done it, the conclusion I've come to is that:
1) Focus on what you want (15-30 minutes)
2) Let the thought go
3) Go about living
4) and PRESTO!!
I can't explain it anymore than that, other than Ferraris inspire me (it's something I like). Now is there one in my garage (not as of yet) but their will be...
Hope this helps...
I've been playing around with this myself for the last couple months, and I find I get the best results whenever I just state my intention and then release it. I decide what I want, put the intention out there, and then trust that the universe will bring it. I like to think that the second I intend something, it's already in "escrow" waiting for me (as Esther Hicks puts it). For a while I thought I had to spend some time each day focusing on what I wanted. I didnt get very good results with that.
For instance, the other day, I put out the intention that I wanted to be appreciated more at work. That same day, I went into work, and soon found out that a patient had written a note to my manager praising me for all the help I had given her. I have been at this job for over a year and that's the first compliment I've gotten. Or... a while ago, I put out the intention to find a daycare for my son. The one we had just visited didnt have any openings. The next day, I got a phone call that a spot had opened up.
These are the only one I can think of now... I think it happens a lot more than I realize, and I will think to myself, "Man, that is so cool! I can't believe that just happened..." but then I'll forget about it. lol.
I would try putting out the intention for something small. I dont know if money is the best way to go either, because most people have a lot of issues with money to begin with. That is going to trip you up and make you doubt yourself. Try putting out the intention of having green lights all the way to work :) That's one of my favorites. On the days that I intend it, it almost ALWAYS works. And I have a lot of stop lights on my way. Just think about what you want. BELIEVE that you deserve a quick, easy commute to work, KNOW that you can create whatever you desire, and TRUST that the universe is bringing it to you. Then let it go. And have fun with it.
I am going to share something with you guys, which I believe is a direct result of intention-manifestation, and completely shattered my doubt. The thing is, its perfect representation of how you can't look for a certain path.
Anyway, here goes. I had been unemployed for almost a year. Making the most of it I played a bunch of shows with my band, disregarding how we could barely afford to change strings, let alone pay for gas to get to shows. However, it was time to pay rent and bills, and this was right around the time I started applying intention manifestation, I had no idea how i was going to get rent. So I put out the intention.
I drive my girlfriends Honda Element to shows, because it fits all our gear, and she drives my car to meet us at the venue. On the way to our show, a 16 year old girl rear ended her in my car. Nothing too horrible, but enough to make my car uglier. I was glad everyone was ok, and they exchanged information. So I waited a couple days and called the girls mom and talked to her a little, telling them that I understand she's a new driver, and that I would give them the choice of settling out of court or through the insurance companies (which I dont like, and don't want to support in any way if possible). Now, I drive a 1987 Chevy Celebrity, which isnt the nicest car ever, but it only had 70k miles on it, and barely any rust...so, its not fancy, but it was a nice car. The estimate that I got said it would run about 3200 dollars to fix, and I know that the Insurance Company would have just totaled my car and written me a check for the bluebook value (probably a lower one too, 400 or so dollars)...so I told the gils parents that I would settle for 1200 dollars out of court, which I thought was a good median, not trying to screw them (because the insurance on a 16 year old girl would most likely triple). I told them I was in no hurry and they could weigh their options, just let me know soon if they wanted to go the insurance route. Five minutes after I offered, they called back and said that the would send me a check in the morning. 3 days later, I got a check for 1200 dollars and paid my bills. I do have an uglier car, but, if I cared how my car looked, i wouldnt have bought a 1987 Celebrity, right?
Maybe this doesnt convince the doubters, but it opened my eyes to the idea of looking for the way the universe rearranges itself, not looking for the exact object. If I had been waiting for sacks of money to show up on my door, I might have handled the accident in a different way...I might have blown up, calling their daughter negligent, freaking out, and ending up with (maybe) a 400 dollar check from an institution I loathe. However, I saw an opportunity to help a girl stay out of trouble (if I had been mean, the parents might have transferred it to their daughter), not feed the glutinous insurance company, and pay my rent for 2 months.
I don't doubt it any longer, and have been working towards making myself better at I-M...because I really think it's the best personal development tool.
For me personally, the issue with intention-manifestation has not been getting it to work, it's been figuring out what I want. I have everything I need right now, and I'm not trying to pay bills or anything because I am still in high school.
I have been experimenting with it though, like when I took the SAT for the second time I raised my score about 300 points without any extra studying, because I visualized conquering the test about 20 minutes a night for the three nights prior to the test.
My conclusion is that it works, and I am excited to try it out with other things.
One of the things that I'm learning about intention-manifestation is that you manifest a reflection of yourself, including those parts of yourself of which you are not aware. So intention-manifestation seems to be great as a self-development tool.
Using Steve's ideas as well as those on HunaTrainer, I manifested $4 million this week (the culmination was this week, but quite frankly I didn't spend a lot of time or effort on it). While I can't spend a dime of it, it is a huge sum of money for a company that needs it and somehow I'm confident I'll be able to take part in enjoying a small part of it. It's a glimmer of what is possible, and has led me to uncover some fundamental assumptions I'm making about life and seem to want to cling to and is helping me challenge them.
Intention-manifestation happens. I think the real work is in tuning and refining the manifestation part by exploring our fundamental beliefs about life.
Personally, I don't use intention-manifesting regularly at this time. Perhaps I should, maybe I could sort out some of my troubles that way...
However, this summer, after I had been introduced to it via this site, I was damn good at it. :p
I've realised that I've almost always used it, mostly to make sure that I wouldn't have to worry about cash (and I've almost never have) and untimely school tasks (I should probably pick this up again.:p ).
Anyway, this summer, just before the end of the school semester; I was down to a pitiful amount in my bank account and I was trying to woo a very.. complicated girl.
In the following two weeks after I put out my intentions, I had gotten a job (albeit a short and merely decently-paying one) and my primary income stream increased by 10%.
And the girl? The thing with manifesting is... Sometimes, you don't get what you asked for. You get something even better. :D A girl I had barely noticed up until then almost literaly fell into my lap (I had, just two days before, said that I wasn't actively searching, but merely waiting for what the universe would place in my arms, to some old friends of mine) during a class party that I didn't even think I would be invited to. Currently, we're in the best relationship I've had so far (which admittedly doesn't say much), despite her moving to Holland.
So, at the moment I don't use my manifesting muscles:) at all, because I simply don't have much that I would want to have right now. I'm more or less satisfied (which I probably shouldn't be, one should always strive higher, after all). I know what you're talking about Erock.
TMTA - aren't you manifesting what you currently have in your life right now? Sure, you may not be putting much effort into it, or even think that you are manifesting, but isn't intention-manifestation really what's going on right now?
Of course; I meant that I don't actively, consciously do it as much as I used to.
I'm _not_ obsessed! really!
Okay, this may sound obsessive, but:
For fun I shared an intention with my colleague that stated we wanted redheaded females at work, since we both love redheaded females :)
two days later, one of the girls that work there had dyed her hair red.
So I tried another one, I stated I would like to see a redheaded girl in green clothes, and visualised it happening near the trainstation at work.
A few days later I saw a little girl with red hair near the station, and I thought "well, this must be the alpha state, the universe is telling me it got the message". Also, I think the universe was joking with me, saying "hey, you wanted a redhead near the station, I got you one. You didn't state her age though :P".
So I redefined my intention a little, and two days later I was walking towards the station, and there she was: natural red hair, about my age, and all green clothes. ..and two probably parents too, but again, that wasn't in my intention..)
So I definetly think the law of attraction works, but i have been slacking in using it consciously lately, guess I'll put it on my todo list with al those other development issues :)
And maybe your post is a wink from the universe for my intention (does it really work?). :D
I have been manifesting birth it feels and each new philosophy I stumble upon or hidden book uncovered adds a new technique to the way I do it.
For one thing, I am still alive! That's the best manifestation I can think of.
Books that have helped me in the past hone manifesting were definitly The Kybalion, by the Three Initiates. It is the "grand father" of all this manifestation phase we are experiencing currently. Written in the 20's and that is pretty much all we know but they bring fourth the seven fundemental principles of the Universe as seen through Hermatic philosophy. BAsically that All is Mind. Simple and to the point.
When: "What The Bleep Do We Know..." came out and now "The Secret" I thought it was brilliant as they each take on some of the principles explained in the Kybalion. The Kybalion talks more about the law of vibration, poles, rhythm, etc. Put to work, it is probably the most valuable book I have ever read.
Also, The Nature of Personal Reality, by Seth is "a grand father" of sorts. It was the first book of its genre that started this whole channeling thing in the 60s of an entity called Seth who describes quite simply, the nature of reality.
I am a Reiki Master also which helps in focusing intention as well as other occult techniques I practice, Kofutu, meditation, etc.
Basically, manifesting intentions for me are done like this, 1) visualize, and visualize as with much details as possible, 2) hold the feeling close to you, as if you were living it and 3) releasing it. I think the last part is the most important as you finally let the Universe take care of the details you might not be aware of, such as the synchronious events involved in order to give you what you wish for.
Hi all of you, what great posts here. Lots of different experiences and that seems natural in trying out something from different perspectives and situations.
Lots of great things said here. I like how you phrased this, Lucas: ..." but it opened my eyes to the idea of looking for the way the universe rearranges itself, not looking for the exact object."...and I like how you pointed out the variances of your own attitude towards others in your experience there, based on how you deal with intention.
I do think an introduction that reminds me of some important things (both in general and quite possibly important to having the process work its best) is real important. "For the greatest good of all" is a good reminder. "In its own perfect time", "In a healthy and positive way" I think formulating one's own general approach to reaching for the highest, (whether that be spiritual, emotional, physical, material, relationship, creative, other things) might be real important. And that general approach may work best if it reminds me of my highest values in life.
If everything I want is in concert and connected to my own highest values, won't it all be better?
I appreciate your honesty a lot Trina and others who've said, gee I don't know, I'm trying to do this but.... I hope this can be a good place to share these experiences and get feedback on process. I think this is highly individualized and everybody's experience will help.
Last, for those who don't want anything right now, cool! How about some intentions towards the success of this forum collection? World peace? Help for the folks down the street or that old man I saw just today limping slowly and bravely across the road with his cane and one leg dragging? I do think this works and the more we do it the more it works...maybe it's a bit like playing music every day.....
My best to all of you,
I have had INCREDIBLE experiences with Intention/Manifestation. It works!!!! I consider the most pivotal moment in my life the day I discovered HOW it works....my life has never been the same. Just to nutshell the LONG story below. I created my own "personal creed". I wrote it first...it was 4 pages single spaced typed covering what I considered "my ideal life" in all areas such as physical, financial, relationships, spiritual etc. After writing it, I then recorded it to Baroque music (in the background) and listened to it for 10 months. I made the $20,000 that was my intention. It blew my mind!!!! And so I continue doing it... just adding a zero to the back of that number now. :)
I was (and still am) a pretty down-to-earth girl...and so if I can do it....anyone can! I didn't know at the time...WHY this worked, but now I do and I teach it to others and assist them in creating their own LifeVision or Creed.
So everyone...Keep those clear intentions at the front of your brain....
I've included MY STORY, because it's completely relevant to the topic.I know it's a long story and if the mods ask me to delete it....or if they delete it...it's all good! :)
My story begins in the fall of 1988. At the time, my husband and I were a few years out of graduate school and living in the Washington D.C. area. Upon graduation, we were optimistic that our future, including our financial future, would be bright and prosperous. However, we were unprepared for the high cost of living in the DC area. That, along with our new student loan payment, and the usual expenses of a young family of 4 nearly put us under. To put it bluntly, we were dying financially! If we needed new tires for our car, or had to make a car insurance payment, it all went on the credit card. New furniture and new clothes were unheard of. After 7 years of marriage, we still couldn’t afford to go on a “date”. Instead, we had friends over to play games and enjoy a treat. Nothing wrong with that, until one time it all came to a head. Our friends wanted a drink of milk with the brownies we had offered them; they came into the kitchen and poured themselves one glass, then another glass, and another, until finally the whole gallon was gone. It wasn’t until they were gone, that I broke down in sobs, knowing we didn’t have enough money to purchase another gallon until the next week. Things had to change! I desperately began trying to make money-at-home. I tried several different things, from network marketing to piano lessons, but never made more than $300 in any business adventure I pursued.
One day my father called and offered to buy airline tickets for the whole family to come home at Christmas. He said he had 2 new ideas that were so exciting they “kept him up at night” and he wanted to share those when we came home for Christmas. I begged him to tell me then, but he wouldn’t relent, saying I had to wait until Christmas.
Finally, upon arriving at my parents home, I dropped my suitcase in the doorway and said “TELL ME!”. My dad began in a very animated and rambling way, telling how he had hired a “life coach”, created a “Creed” and continued jabbering about how all of his goals were coming to fruition. I’m sure the blank stare on my face told him “I’m not getting this!!!” My only comment was “Dad, you’re too old to play sports!”. After rolling his eyes, he started from the beginning and told me how he had hired Leo Weidner, a former student of Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich to be his “life coach”. Leo was assisting him in writing down all of his goals from all areas of his life in a method that I had never heard of before. (Remember, this was the 80’s! and affirmations were just on their way “in”.) This “creed” was a little like a personal mission statement but written in first person, present tense as if it had already happened! My dad went on to tell me that he had had an incredible experience so far and was accomplished his dreams much faster than he had anticipated. Still, I wasn’t really “getting” what he was saying, and so he resorted to handing me a booklet, that he said would explain it all!
His second “revelation” was a new business idea that a mutual friend had had much success with. When he mentioned this friend had made $30,000 in the month of November, I was all ears! It turned out the business was selling a “Wassail” mix (a hot orange, lemon and spice drink) at craft shows. The mix was packaged in a cute Christmas plaid bag, tied with a bow, gift card and cinnamon stick. They sold for about $5 each and my dad anticipated that I could sell hundreds. Then he made a powerful suggestion that kept me up all night. He said “Why don’t you use this new goal setting method that I’m trying and put into your own “creed” that you are financially stable and that you make lots of money from your wassail-selling business”. Because I came from a goal-oriented family and New Years was quickly approaching, it was just natural that I would be setting my own 1989 goals very shortly. I decided that I would in fact “TRY” this new totally-off-the-wall Creed!
And so I began. I followed the details in the booklet, writing down my goals in each section of life (spiritual, physical, relationships, emotion, personal development and financial) “as if” I had already accomplished them. It was strange at first, but I quickly got the hang of it. When I got to the financial section, I wrote: “I have a wassail business! In December 1989, I make $20,000. I do this by selling 2000 bags of wassail at 6 craft shows. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 1-3 p.m. in the afternoon, I make the necessary phone calls and preparations to accomplish this task.” Interestingly, at the time I wrote this, I had no idea what was involved in having a “wassail-business”, because it was a brand-new idea to me.
After finishing up with the writing of my creed on a typewriter (no computer!), I was a little taken back that I was instructed in the booklet to record my written creed onto a cassette tape with Baroque music playing in the background! While still shaking my head at this crazy idea, I checked out Baroque music from the library, got our Fisher Price tape recorder and while my two little girls were playing in the other room, I began the task of recording my first-ever LifeVision!. What a nightmare! I was almost finished with the entire recording and the phone rang (so the “ringing sound” was on my recording)….so I turned off the phone and started again. This time I was almost done when one daughter came into the room crying about how her sister had hit her. So I locked the door and started at the beginning once again. This time it was banging on the door about how the sister had hit her again…… all on my recording! It took me approximately 2 hours to record a short 10 minute recording! But finally I had my recorded creed on tape.
It wasn’t many days later that I began to doubt myself. I remember feelings like “Get real Ann, your husband only makes $25,000 and you think you’re going to make $20,000 in a single month! And besides….look at your track record!!!”
These thoughts plagued me for a few days when finally I knew I had to change that single word in my creed from $20,000 to $5,000. But the thoughts of having to go through that nightmare for one word didn’t make sense. So I came up with the perfect solution! I would say “$5,000” over the top of my recording each and every time I listened to it. This was being “realistic” without the headache of having to re-record the entire thing. This worked for about 2 weeks. One day I was driving to the grocery store , supposedly listening to my creed, but I got to the end of the tape and realized that I hadn’t paid any attention to it. I had been day-dreaming and hadn’t focuses on it at all! (I’m sure I was making a mental grocery list instead). I was discouraged and scared, wondering how this would all work if I couldn’t focus on my goals! I found my dad’s booklet and in the back was Leo Weidner’s phone number. I called him and said something like the following: “Hi Leo, you don’t know me from Adam, but my dad is a client, and on my own, I’ve written a creed. After listening to it for several weeks, I’m having trouble focusing and usually become distracted while listening. Do you have any suggestions?”
Leo asked me if I had followed the instruction of recording it to Baroque music in the background. I said that I had. He said…”Good, it doesn’t matter if you’re focusing or not because the super-learning music helps to take it to the subconscious by putting you in the meditative state of Alpha.” (WAY too deep for me!) He assured me that it would work even if I daydreamed! PHEW!
Needless to say, it wasn’t too many days before I stopped saying “$5000” over my $20,000 recorded goal. I continued to listen to my recording daily (at least subconsciously ) for the next 10 months and crazily enough, I made $19,800 in the month of November !!!! Can I just say how thankful I am that I was too lazy to re-record my creed (thereafter to be called a LifeVision).
After this experience, I had to ask myself… “Why did this happen? “What made it work”? I will admit that I didn’t spend the time researching the answer to these questions and the principles behind them. I was just thrilled it had worked and so I spent my time creating bigger and more powerful LifeVisions. I knew it worked, and I wasn’t too concerned at the time of “Why” it worked. The results were enough for me.
I haven't gotten any ideas that anything like this should be "mod"ded out. Thanks for putting it into smaller font, just less scrolling.
I found myself wondering.. where's the next chapter? What happened in 1989? Who needs novels any more anyway?
Thanks for participating in the new threads, let's keep them going as well as we can.
I think we are building an intention-manifestation work shop here :)
but I went over the limit....:)
Give me a minute :P
The Rest of the Story
………The Rest of the Story.
The next season, with a year’s experience under my belt, I was determined to create a much bigger business out of my little “Wassail business”. I began the year by creating a new LifeVision that included the financial figure of $100,000. (My husband Scott wanted me to “just add another zero, to the end of last years number”….but $200,000 was a little ambitious for a girl who was still reeling from the $20,000 experience.) Once again, I listened daily to the affirmation of $100,000 ~15,000+ bags of wassail to back up that figure. But the Universe had other plans….we got into the wholesale business which threw that figure into the tens of thousands of bags! We became a staple at the Gift Markets and Gourmet Food Shows, selling to over 2,000 stores nationwide. Wow! A simple idea that eventually became a million-dollar idea for our family. Now, 17 years later, we still own and run Old World Specialties, maker of fine gourmet food mixes.
Old World Specialties
Your dad must be just tickled!
congratulations, what a time you've had...
Yah, it works...
:cool: :) :rolleyes: :)
Great story annie, I loved it. It really motivates me to do something like that as well.
I guess the key is
- using the right mood, so, "in it's own perfect time" and such
- using the right words, to not force it and keep the intention clear and positive, not doubtful
- write it down, print it out, record it, so you can at least once a day:
- focus on the intention, read it, listen to it, think it, and visualize it
- let it go for the universe to work on
- enjoy every little signal that points in the direction of your intention. keep a positive, clear and relaxed mind
- profit! ;)
Maybe I'll go for the recording method today, right after I wrote down everything that's in my mind.
..err, well I guess the recording method will have to wait then ;)
I have never recieved cheques in the post except for when I visualised them arriving. I spent a few days idly imaging picking them up of the doormat and then forgot about it. the first time it happened it was a semi-plausable reason but the second time it was really random. I won on my Bonds which I had never won on before. I only have £100 worth.
This tipped it for me.
I do offer a Free Report called " The Power of Creating a LifeVision". The purpose of it is to show how a LifeVision works, what it is and what it can do for you and how it's the perfect application to THE LAW OF ATTRACTION! Also, with it, you get a free subscription to my new ezine "Let Your Life Speak" which comes only monthly (so I don't annoy anyone ;) )
If anyone is interested, send me a private message with your email address (I promise I don't sell lists or spam you...just the monthly ezine which I think you'll really like!)
and I will send you the Free Report...The Power of Creating a LifeVision.
Good Luck everyone with Intention and Manifesting. I know it can be tricky to get the hang of....but it REALLY REALLY WORKS!!
As long as you feel silly doing intention manifesting, Trina - you'll manifest silly things for yourself.
Don't - you have manifested your intentions all your life, so you're quite experienced in this ! Just tweak your methods now and manifest what you want, instead of doing it haphazardly like most people.
Thank you so much for sharing your story Annie and for providing the LifeVision idea! :)
