To me, manifesting comes down to one thing and one thing only – focus. Earlier this year, when I first learned about Neville’s teachings, I spent hours on Youtube trying out a million different techniques and trying way too hard. Only after I found this website and was coached by Jennifer (the best Neville Goddard coach ever), did I realize how simple it indeed was.
I would spend hours on Youtube, then hours trying to manifest but kept focusing on what I didn’t want. After all these hours of trying different techniques, I would end up on social media checking to see if the techniques had worked yet.
As Jennifer has stated before, when you water a plant and give it attention, it grows. But when you stop watering the plant and give it no attention, it dies. And for a very long time, I was watering a third party, and of course, all it did was grow.
The moment I realized where my focus had truly been placed, I said to myself: I am done. I am done placing my focus on what I don’t desire. I committed myself that day, and I declared to myself that I would never waver again, no matter what I was faced with, because I knew that I was stronger and more powerful than whatever dead thing was in front of me.
At first it was hard, I’m not going to lie. I still thought about the third party a lot. But I wasn’t afraid of my thoughts anymore, nor would I get mad at them or worry. Instead, I would laugh about it and be like “this doesn’t even matter anymore because I already changed my assumptions, and that is the only thing that is real”. And as Jennifer has stated before, assumptions are built from what you are focused on.
Every time I felt the urge to check social media, which at first I felt a lot, I stopped myself. Instead of being in question mode trying to find out something from the dead world outside, I would switch over to answer mode because I am God, and I already have all the answers.
When I felt this urge, I would declare to myself that they were gone, that they did not exist anymore, and that my specific person was mine and only mine. Slowly as the days went by, the urge to check the 3D world just vanished. I had stopped watering the plant.
Before this, everyone mentioned her to me. I would be talking to a random friend, and all of a sudden she would be like, “oh, did you see what she posted?”. I would be on social media, and she would pop up randomly on mutual friends’ pages. Because, of course, my focus was on her and what you focus on manifests, as well as other things in its likeness.
Less than two weeks after I had told myself that she was gone, she was actually gone. I had continued to live my life and go on social media, but I had stopped checking up on her and giving her attention. I never once saw her again or heard anything about her again. I had stopped watering that plant, and it died and ceased to exist in my reality.
So every time you catch yourself giving attention to something you do not want in your reality, whether that may be a person, traits about a person or just anything, realize that you are watering it and allowing it to grow. The moment you take your attention away from it, it has no choice but to die. Instead, spend your time placing your focus on the things you do want to manifest and the good things you have already manifested. They deserve to be watered so that they can grow.
