How to Manifest by Not Trying to Manifest
How Much Focus Is Okay?
A little bit of focus
At first this seemed completely counterintuitive to me. Isn’t that what all this stuff is about? You focus on what you want, imagine it and feel it and then you get it. But that’s not always the case is it? It’s been my experience that the more focus you place on something you care about getting or not getting, the less likely it is to show up.
So how do you go about manifesting those things you seem to get stuck on?
When I say it’s simple, it really is, only we make it difficult by getting in our own way and worrying that if we don’t try and manifest it, then the universe might start to think that we don’t want it anymore.
I've Been There
I’ve been in that place. I’d read quite a bit of material on the subject but never really found anything that completely resonated with me and how the law of attraction worked for me, or seemed to work for me. I’d seen tutorials with people telling me how to do A and B to get C. But the majority of these techniques really did nothing for me. My experience was rather more chaotic and didn’t always seem to conform to these practices.
I started to think that I must be trying too hard. This came to me when I was rummaging around in my purse one day, trying to find a N07 voucher. I knew I had a £5 voucher somewhere because they always give them to you at the till in Boots when you’re buying makeup. I never use them and I’m not sure where they all go to be honest.
Anyway, this particular day I’d gone in especially for some marvellous miracle neck cream. It was pretty expensive, so I thought ‘Hey, I must have a N07 voucher somewhere. But NO voucher in my purse amongst all of the many receipts and business cards. I was disappointed but not surprised. I sighed to myself and wished I had the voucher. It was nothing more than a fleeting feeling. When I got to the till, the young girl scanned my very expensive (and not all that good, as it turned out) cream and just as she was about to ask me for my payment, she said ‘actually why don’t I put one of these through for you.’ With that she went into a drawer under the desk and fished out….yes you guess it, a £5 voucher!
It wasn’t until I was having coffee later that day that I realised it was a manifestation. They don’t generally give you random vouchers to use on the day, but that day I got one because I’d fleetingly wished for one. So it’s really as simple as that? I wondered.
A Helpfull Book
I then purchased Becoming Genevieve by Genevieve Davis. It was a complete revelation. She was experiencing it just the way I experienced it. Once I let go of the notion that there were rules and ways of going about getting what I wanted I started to get what I wanted most of the time. I say most of the time because I am only human and a couple of times I struggled to leave the focus thing alone for long enough. I am leaving those things for now. I will go back to them when I am sure I am able to let go and just let everything happen.
Drop The Trying To
So, NO trying to manifest works for me. I still get what I want in my head, imagine it happening and I sit with the feeling for a couple of seconds. Technically you might say that’s still trying, but the reality is, it doesn’t feel like trying anymore.
If it’s just a very small thing I want, like a coffee or a phone call, then I just do the fleeting thing again and try and forget all about it.
If you can practise not trying to manifest and just let things happen then you might not get frustrated with the whole thing.
As Genevieve says...believe in the magic...
