Due to popular demand -- actually, my own suggestion and one other poster's request
-- I'm starting a thread on how to correctly manifest.
Over the last decades, I've gained a lot of experience in manifestation (and a lot of was trial and error) and have become astute enough that some of
my New Age friends have called me "the Manifestation Queen."
I noticed that in my free Tarot readings (click here to see the thread
), I often give
advice that has to do with changing your life by creating your own reality. Many people don't seem to really know how to do that, though.
So I'm going to try to provide some ongoing lessons here for everyone interested, and you're welcome to ask me questions pertaining to your own
Of course I won't be on this thread 24/7 to participate and answer question, but I'll do my best.
Let's get started, but first a few preliminaries:
1. Atheists may hate this thread because I happen to believe in God/Spirit/Creator. Well, actually, "believe" is not the right word, since I have
had close encounters of every kind, so if people ask me if I believe in a higher power, I usually say, "No, I'm not a believer, I'm a knower."
May sound arrogant to you, but that's just how I feel. In any case, this "knowing" definitely plays into my manifestation lessons.
2. All the stuff I tell you is not something I read in books, but things that I have experienced myself... thus arguing with me about its validity is
kind of moot. I'll only be able to respond with "But I experienced it myself," so there's really no basis for an intellectual argument here... in
other words, please don't start one. It's your prerogative not to like this thread, but then just don't post in it.
And with that said, here's
Lesson #1: Getting what you want
First you should ask yourself: What do I WANT, what do I really NEED, and what is my heart's desire?
Those can be differing vastly from each other. From my own experience, it is often much easier to manifest the latter two than the former. Spirit/the
Universe does not give you every single thing you want, and I'll explain that later.
Let's say you want to win the lottery (which seems to be what a lot of people try to manifest, for some reason). Do you NEED 25 million dollars? I
If you need money for something -- let's say because your car has broken down, or you have trouble to pay your bills, or you're struggling with your
mortgage -- then you should be asking for the THING you want rather than for the money to buy it.
If you need a new car, then ask for a new car -- on the cheap or even for free, if you can't afford to buy one. If you CAN easily afford to buy one,
though, Spirit/the Universe will not look kindly upon your request. It'll basically dismiss you as a cheapskate and go its merry way.
Likewise, the Universe will not support greed. If you ask for a bigger house because you know your kids and Granny are going to move in soon, that's
one things. To ask for a bigger house because you want to keep up with the Joneses or simply want to brag about it, forget it. At times you might even
get what you asked for, but boy, you're not going to have a good time with it.
So to increase your chances of manifesting successfully, you need to ask for the right things to be manifested.
- a job/new job, becoming self-employed, finding the perfect job, etc.
- a house if you need one, or need a bigger one, or in another location
- a car if you need one
- love and happiness
- being able to pay your bills easily
- finding the perfect pet
- finding the perfect spouse
- fulfilling your life's dream
- inspiration to write a book/poem/paint/invent something, etc.
- peace of mind and contentment
Maybe I forgot something, but it seems to me those things are pretty much all one could ask for, right? I mean, if you had all the above, would you
really need a luxury yacht or 25 million bucks?
I'm pretty convinced that many of the material "wants" people have come from being emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually unfulfilled...
nothing more than a feeble attempt to fill that vast emptiness inside of yourself. Think about it for a second -- does that sound like you?
If it does, know that you can turn your life around for the vastly better in a heartbeat -- just start wishing for the RIGHT things, the things you
REALLY want, instead of a pile of new clothes and Gucci bags.
- to love and be loved
- to be liked and respected
- materially, to have enough so you don't have to worry all the time
- to have a job that fulfills you, or to work for yourself in a line of work that fulfills you
- to be able to feel good about yourself
Isn't that really what everyone wants? And that's the kind of stuff the Universe loves to deliver. Of course, you can't just go and say, "I want
to be liked and respected" and it will manifest. It's not that simple.
First of all, you can never say "I want" when manifesting -- that will only increase the wanting, not the getting.
But more about that later.
