The Secret of My Manifestations, Four Tips Your Guru Should Have Told You

Updated on December 8, 2008

A Half-Truth Beats a Bold Face Lie Every Time

Like attracts like. We are magnets attracting what we believe we are. That's why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. It can be hard to believe you are rich when you know you don’t have a penny to spare. But feeling poor will only attract more poorness. So, its imperative that you attract from a rich person’s perspective. This can be a tall order when you are in debt up to your eye balls. So here’s a little trick to get the ball rolling. I find its much easier to believe I’m in the midst of change than actually at my goal. I meet it halfway. When I had my second child at age forty, my body didn’t bounce back as quickly as I would have liked. Directly across from my walk in shower, my vanity mirror reflected back the awful truth every morning. I could not look in that mirror and say “I’m thin” with even mild conviction. But I could say “I am getting a little bit thinner everyday” and that I could believe it. As I got thinner, I could move closer to my goal with conviction. “I’m looking like my thinner self again.” Try this with money by saying to yourself, “I’m getting richer and richer” every time you put a coin in your piggy bank. When you see a coin on the street, pick it up and say “the Universe is just throwing money at me now.”

Don't Ask How

One of the fastest ways to stop your dreams from coming true is to ask how its going to happen. “How will I come up with the money. Where will this person come from. Why would anyone pick me.” You don’t need to know how.

Asking how will do several undesired things:

  • Change your focus. Instead of being squarely focused on your goal your thoughts will fragment to all the hurdles between you and your goal,
  • Change your point of attraction from the positive place of your goal to a negative place of lack and why you can’t have it.
  • Weaken your believing. As the questions pile up, your belief in your desire manifestation will dissolve into self doubt and worry .

It’s much better to focus on what you want and why you want it, giving strength to your creation than to dismantle it with how questions. Just sit back and let it unfold. Often the Universe will come up with a much better way than you could imagine anyway.

I was trying to manifest more business on our store’s website. I stated my want. I imagined lots of sales showing up in my e-mail box. I imagined a hundred sales and running out of boxes for shipping. Luckily, my end result “more dollars in web sales,” is the want the universe fulfilled. Instead of hundreds of individual orders I got one for thousands of dollars. It didn’t dawn on me to wish for that. Overtime that customer calls, we fill boxes with thousands of dollars worth of product for her. So much better to let the universe handle the details.

Or Something Better

Always end your requests with a “or something better” clause. From your limited vantage point, you may not see an even better fit to your desires. My website story illustrates this beautifully. I thought I knew what I wanted, but luckily I also knew to say “or something better,” just in case. Good thing. The Universe sent me a much easier way to increase my web sale revenues than I had envisioned

And, Action

Day dreaming can be too easy for some of us, while action can be daunting. The idea behind manifesting is the whole Universe is on your side. Its like a travel agent booking your trip. When the shuttle pulls up outside your door, don’t go “what a pretty shuttle I wonder who its for.” GET IN! Action will not be the upstream paddle of the past. It will come as opportunity knocking. It will be right time, right place happen stance. It will be lucky coincidences (if you still believe in coincidences.) So keep yours eyes peeled to what the Universe may be sending you. Look for people, messages or bits of inspiration. These will be the easy steps forward guided by your angels, spirit guides or the Universe. And don’t worry if you look a couple gift horses right in the mouth, and don’t realize it; the horses are lined up around the corner just hoping you might notice one of them. They can’t help themselves. They are drawn to those focused thoughts of yours.

Thought, word and inspired action work best together. So follow your day dream with an action toward it. Even if its small, forward momentum is forward

      This hub really helped me today, as did PWalker281's hub on the Law of Attraction. These 2 hubs are really what I needed to hear, as I have a major life change coming up. I was really happy about it, then let other people in my life make me fearful. I have to stay with my positive thoughts and manifest my success. Thank you so much for this hub! :-)
