I like to tackle manifesting in a very carefree, nonchalant and relaxed way. Whenever I have a desire within me, I always aim for the feeling of naturalness, as best as I can, with the least amount of effort possible. Forcing things to happen, trying too hard, and over thinking, makes me feel bad, and I am sure it does to you too.
When I realized that I am the God of my universe, some amazing things started to happen to me. I experienced “time” freezing, people appearing and disappearing, and the most wonderful manifestations that I am still shocked about, to this day. My entire life has been completely re-written. I had to make the decision to give up all of my old beliefs, completely. I decided I would break all of the rules that I had once placed on my life, and start from scratch. What I had once thought reality was, was long gone. I was very eager to put my powers to the test, deliberately and consciously.
With each new manifestation, still to this day, I ask myself, how can I push the limits even further? If I am God, then there is nothing I can’t do. I started to look at reality in a very magical way. At first, I was eager to learn and see what more I could achieve, and I still feel that way.
However, I did not immediately start to see results. At first, like many beginners, I felt like I was doing something wrong. Like maybe I was failing at this. That’s when I started to do what most people do at the beginning of their journey. I tried many different techniques, watched tons of videos, meditated for hours (I actually still like to do this), and so much more. Looking back at it, I was trying too hard to achieve my desires.
I asked myself, “If I am God, then what should my perspective on life be?”.
Feeling Your Desires To Be Real
At the beginning of my journey, I thought I had to feel happy, joyful, excited, and elated, all of the time. I thought I had to feel my desires as being real, all day long, and that, that was the only way they would manifest.
I backtracked and started to recall all of the amazing things I had manifested in my life- relationships, friendships, jobs, experiences, and so on. I had manifested all of these wonderful things, without even caring about conscious creation. Most of the time, I was depressed, had low self esteem, and didn’t have the best outlook on life. Yet, I was still able to manifest all of these things, without forcing myself to feel it.
But then, I went a little beyond that. I recalled, that not only did I not feel any particular emotion towards these desires of mine, but many of the times I did not even believe in them. I definitely did not spend any time trying to force myself to believe in the things I wanted out of life.
I dropped all of the techniques, and all of the other things I were doing, and went back to the basics. If I had manifested my entire life so easily and naturally before, then surely I did not have to try so hard. Of course, I made some tweaks here and there, and changed my self-concept, but I took my blueprint from how I was previously manifesting my life.
I realized, I was always making an assumption, and I never second guessed whether that assumption was true or not. I believed it as easy as I was breathing. But why did I do that? Of course, it was because I wasn’t fully utilizing my manifestation skills at that time. I had known about conscious creation, and was studying it, but I was too depressed to care, to utilize it properly. I did not know that I AM the God of my reality. Basically, I was accepting things from my external reality, and what my thoughts were telling me, and started to construct a state to occupy. I was then basing all of my assumptions off of this state.
It did not matter what I did or didn’t believe in, I just kept focusing on something other than the pain I was feeling.
Now, no one wants to feel pain, or feel depressed. And that is exactly why changing my self concept, and accepting I AM the only God of my reality, was so important. It helped me to dis-identify with those unlovely states I did not want to be in.
However, this is why I always say, our previous state of being was a blessing in disguise. It helped me to understand how easy, natural, and effortless, manifesting really is.
What you focus upon, will always be what manifests in your reality. It doesn’t matter if you believe it or not, whether you feel anything towards it, or not. If you focus on something, it will grow, and you will manifest more things in its likeness. When you are focusing on something, and giving it your attention, you are becoming aware that it exists for you, in your reality. You are basically saying, “yes, I accept this as part of my reality.”. Otherwise, if you did not believe it was a part of your reality, or true for you, then why would you give it any attention at all?
For me personally, whenever I focus upon something, it does not always trigger some kind of emotion or feeling within me. As a matter of fact, whenever I am stating intentions, or declaring something as mine, I don’t even feel anything. I might not even believe it. However, I do know that if I focus on it, it will manifest. I know that the moment I state an affirmation, or give gratitude for something, it has no choice but to manifest in my reality.
I do not have to feel it real and I do not have to believe in it fully. All I have to do is take my attention away from the unwanted, and keep focusing on what I declared, or what I see in my mind’s eye. That’s all. I pretty much feel nothing when I am affirming something in my reality. If I asked you right now, “what are you feeling?”, you would probably say, “nothing”. That “nothing” is what I equate with the feeling of naturalness. Of course I have many moments where I feel happy, loved, at peace, and blissful. But I know that, that is not what determines whether my desires manifest or not. It will always be my assumptions, and my assumptions will always be based on what I am focusing on.
Many people are focusing on, “How do I become a master at this?”, “How do I make myself believe?”, “Why is it not working for me?”, “Why is the external reality showing me this thing?”, “How can I feel my desires as real?”, “Am I saying my affirmation correctly, or am I not supposed to be doing it this way?”, and the list goes on. Then they start to assume they didn’t do it correctly, or that something else must be done.
It is because they are focusing on that, is why their desires aren’t manifesting. I did not focus on any of these things after I realized how I had been manifesting my entire life so effortlessly. I stopped questioning everything, and I stopped searching for answers. I kept going back to the one and only reality– what I see in my mind’s eye, and the story I was telling myself. And I felt that nothing feeling while doing so. I didn’t always feel “nothing”, but my point is, I didn’t force myself to feel anything.
I had my ups, I had my downs, but my attention kept coming back within. To my I AM, to the stillness beneath the noise.
I refused to place my attention on something, whether that be doubts or fears, or something in the dead outside world, that I did not want to accept in my reality.
Even if I was not focusing on something within me, I knew that so long I took my attention away from the unwanted, and gave it no thought or contemplation, it would disappear and cease to exist in my reality.
What you focus on within, does not always have to be a scene, an affirmation, or a story. It can simply be the stillness. That alone has the power to overcome anything. Whatever, and whomever, is in your presence, automatically becomes perfect. But if you give more value to the outside, than the inside, then you will always fall for the illusion of imperfection.
No forcing, no caring, no questioning, no anything really. I could just go about my life, knowing that what I gave attention to, would grow. And since now I know, that imagination creates reality, and not external world creates reality, then that is what I give attention to.
Mental Dieting – Doubts, Fears & Thinking Positively
I love everything Neville teaches, but one of the terms I did not always resonate with, is “mental diet”. I thought to myself, I don’t even do food related diets, so why would I do one mentally? Of course I know exactly what Neville means by this. However, my entire aim was to make manifesting natural.
God does not walk around saying, “I need to be on a strict mental diet”, so why should I?
I decided, that thinking and accepting thoughts I want, is me simply selecting a reality, a state, in that moment, that I want to experience. I no longer correlated thinking wonderful and lovely thoughts, as something that is hard to do, or something that I needed to work hard at, or force myself to do. I do not need to be strict at anything. I was simply doing what I had always been doing, but intentionally.
I walk around my universe, at all times, with the understanding that I am selecting a reality in each moment, with whatever thoughts I am accepting. I also walk around in my universe, with the understanding, that whatever I am focusing on and giving attention to, is me choosing my preference.
I do not battle with my doubts and fears. I treat them lovingly, and I release them. I even sometimes get excited when a doubt or fear arises within me, because I know it’s the God within me, giving me an opportunity at that moment to release something that is no longer relevant in my life any longer. As I write this, I can even feel the love for my doubts and fears. Because why would my Godself ever present something within me, that isn’t for my benefit?
It can only harm me, and make me feel bad, if I accept it as true for myself, or if I think it is something against me.
Treat Everything As Part Of The Fulfillment
The reason you might feel any sort of internal struggle or conflict, is because you might think that there is something against you. That there is a battle to overcome, or a person to overcome. But this is only because you are giving importance to a battle, which is the opposite of manifesting your desires effortlessly. You are giving into an illusion, and the illusion of separation.
Not only do some people battle against the external reality and circumstances, but they also battle against themselves. Like I stated in my last article, you are not that person with the conflicts, battles, or struggles. There is nothing or no one against you, and there never was, nor will there ever be. There are no requirements for you to manifest your desires effortlessly.
When you drop the assumption that anything can go wrong, and treat everything as part of the fulfillment, things will start to unfold naturally.
If something seems bad, or like an obstacle in your reality, the first thing to do, is not to go on social media to post about it, or tell your friends about it. The first thing you should always do, is label it as part of the unfolding, and part of the bridge of events. There is no such thing as things not working out for you, or no progress, there is only you settling too early, and giving up.
Things are always unfolding for you, even behind the scenes.
I always assume, that even if I manifest something “bad”, that it isn’t actually bad. It isn’t an obstacle or a threat to me. I can rest at ease and relief, knowing that everything I come across, is all perfect in its likeness for my manifestation to occur. I give no importance to circumstances, and I give no importance to an unlovely experience, or past, that I do not want to accept as true for me.
There are no conditions, no rules, and no limitations on your desires. There are no “what if’s”, “buts”, or “it can’t”.
This is a lifestyle, and so I treat every day as a fulfillment. I spend my time giving importance within, and less time focusing on what more needs to be done. If I am the fulfillment and the promise, then I already have everything.
