What does it mean to manifest? What was the first thing that popped into your mind? Was it 'to create, to come to be, to bring to reality?' Close. The definition is: 'clearly apparent to the sight or understanding!' Did you know that an infinite number of things are manifested every day? That's right! Each thought, each vibration, each feeling or belief manifests a response. Be it positive or negative, good or bad.
One of the most powerful things to understand about manifestation is that what comes to be in your life began with a thought, feeling or action by You. Compelling, isn't it? The wonderful person you met, the great new job with full benefits, or the perfect house with all of that closet space and the finished basement, all began with your thoughts. Did you pat yourself on the back? Go ahead. Please give credit where it is due! On the other hand, the lack of funds, break-up, and business standstill are also of your making. How does one harness this powerful tool to create the things that are wanted, instead of the things that aren't? The answer is by becoming more in tune with your thoughts, feelings, situations, and actions. The more aware you are of where your thoughts are wandering to, the more control you will have over what is being manifested.
Ben is one of a growing number of work from home dads. It is his responsibility to take care of two children under the age of four each day, while running his successful web design business. Is it challenging? Absolutely, but Ben has managed quite nicely by making manifestation work for him. His sons used to pick the most inopportune time to make noise, wreak havoc, and well...act like toddlers! But now this rarely occurs because Ben takes the time throughout his day to focus his thoughts on what actions he would like to see occur: quiet play, easy nap-time routines, and uneventful meals, and it works! No longer does Ben have to hide in the bathroom to take important business calls. He has effectively managed to create the work environment that he needs.
Manifestation requires time, patience and practice. It can be difficult to change bad habits and to train yourself to think differently, but so rewarding when the effort is made. So begin manifesting the things that you want by making that mental shift. Start small if you have to, but start today. Focus on what you want, instead of what you don't have, always keeping your eyes on the goal. Remember to look for and appreciate what is manifesting (going back to the definition - the things you request will show up clearly and in plain sight), you just have to identify them as what you asked for, so be careful what you ask for. Also remember to show gratitude as your dreams and desires appear. Remember attraction, the more gratitude (positive energy) that is shown, the more positive energy that will flow back to you. With all of this positive imagery and energy, success will abound. So, start using these tips now. You'll be manifesting a great deal more of what you want. I guarantee that you will be impressed by the fruits of your effort.
