There are many schools of thought regarding manifesting things we desire.
They all involve some affirmation to the universe to bless us in a way that can improve our life circumstances.
And so, we follow this path and do as we are told. We write in journals, create vision boards, pray each night, light candles, and throw cards to see how it will work out.
In some cases, we might be successful using these means, and I will encourage you to use them as part of your manifestation tools but not to rely on them alone for creation.
Creating prosperity in our lives depends on three factors, each equally important to master if we want to be instant manifestors of abundance.
So let’s take a look at it!
SPEAKING IN THE PRESENT
The past, present, and future all exist simultaneously, but we can only perceive the present.
“I wish, I want, I am going to, or I will” are all phrases that denote a future timeline. However, since we can only access the present dimension, affirming our prosperity using wants and wishes keeps those things out of our reach.
Let’s say you wish to manifest a new car. You run out into the arms of the universe and say, “I want a new car!” And the universe takes that in as a want.
The energy of wanting leads to more wanting because the universe is neutral. It reflects what you put into it. So wanting does not lead to receiving. Needing is the same. “I need money.” Keep telling the universe you need money, and you will continue to attract more situations where you need money.
When you affirm, “I have a new, beautiful car,” you have brought your attention and awareness to the present. And it is only in the present that we can manifest the life we truly want.
Living in the present as though you’ve already received your desire is paramount to receiving blessings from the divine.
FEELING THE JOY OF HAVING RECEIVED
This is the one many people have a hard time with, which is why they find manifesting prosperity so trying.
To genuinely manifest, you must allow your creative energy to come into being. How do you accomplish this?
The gift to humanity is our ability to emote.
Once you’ve affirmed your new life or desire in the present moment, you must feel the emotion of having already received it.
Two emotions I’ve noticed move things along regarding manifesting prosperity. I spoke about this in Cracking the Abundance Code.
Joy and Gratitude
This is the essential part. It’s the key to unlocking infinite abundance and possibilities in your life.
Gratitude for all we have opens the doors to receive more abundance.
Look at your home and bless everything you have, even if you aren’t where you “want” to be. Remember, some people don’t have homes.
Bless your boss and co-workers because some people struggle to find work.
Thank the universe for the opportunity to greet each new day. Many don’t get that chance.
ROADBLOCKS TO MANIFESTING
Humans are creatures that have evolved to expect instant gratification.
Therefore, we give up when we begin our affirmation practice and don’t see results immediately. This leads to more frustration and anger. And If we’ve learned anything from the above, we know that negative emotions will send you right back into manifesting everything you don’t want in your life. Mastering your thoughts is an integral part of this.
It takes around 70 days to create new neural pathways. So you’ve got to stick with it for over a month before seeing any real change.
Understanding how your subconscious mind works is also a game-changer. Many of us have no idea how to use our minds to its most significant potential.
Our subconscious mind takes direct orders from our conscious mind. So how we think, speak, and feel is essential. Negative commands will be met with negative experiences. So keeping our thoughts and decrees positive and uplifting is a must.
Imposter syndrome is another roadblock. When we don’t believe the new mantra we are implanting into our subconscious mind, we will find we return a negative result. Remember, the subconscious mind works on the law of belief, so if our conscious mind rejects the idea of wealth, success, and prosperity, the subconscious mind will see that we do not receive those things.
IS WHAT WE WANT WHAT WE NEED?
We must meditate on one final thing before manifesting our dreams and desires.
Is what we want from life really what we need from it? We must ask ourselves this question before we allow our egos to go buck wild.
Because the key to true prosperity is manifesting what is in alignment with our highest good, our souls know what’s best for us. But, unfortunately, our egos have no idea.
We may think we want one thing, but the universe sends something more aligned with what we genuinely need. And that thing is more than we could have ever wanted! Or even imagined!
So as you start your practice, make sure you allow the universe to bless you with more than you could imagine. Don; ‘t get caught up in negative mantras. What you complain or condemn, you will lose, so remain positive.
Surrender to the universal energy of abundance and watch it flow.
Below are a few examples of how to talk to the universe.
- Perfect health and well-being are mine.
- My needs are taken care of.
- I always have what I need and more.
- Prosperity and abundance are mine.
Change them to whatever resonates for you. Do them with your other spiritual practices daily to get those neuropathways running in prosperity mode.
And remember, what we want is not always what we need. But what we need can often be what we truly wanted all along.
