7 Reasons to Manifest More

 

 

 

Manifestation is a way of focusing the mind and emotions on a visual while connecting with the universe to realize a desired result. It must come from the heart to bring true satisfaction and relief from a lower condition. It must vibrate above fears and old projections about life–and it must take you into new realizations of perceiving life. Otherwise, you’re merely recreating old experiences and patterns, which eventually bring dissatisfaction. (True manifestation is the creation of new experiences and ideas that bring insight into the soul.)

  1. Positive manifestations begin with the heart and its desire. The heart chakra receives and distributes unconditional, universal love. In this space, you begin to find the feeling of the desirable life, which expands through visuals and aligned thoughts. The desire becomes the north star, the compass point of consciousness that leads to greater realization.
  2. Every visualization develops through intuition and meditation. It’s how you hear the universe and the language of the heart. By following intuition, you receive a positive feeling that is different from habitual emotions–and eventually leads to new, better results.
  3. The practice of manifestation leads away from comfortable routines that limit life; it leads to new opportunities, expressions of life, and a creative outlook. By holding the visualization, you tell the universe that you want a different, higher frequency, and the universe whispers directions through the heart. By learning to hear the universe through the heart, you open to colors, sounds, feelings, and a new way of thinking.
  4. With every manifestation, there is a part of self that resists the new “way”. By learning about this part of the self–and discovering its beliefs, fears, and lower vibrations–you learn how to create a new way of believing in yourself and the universe, a new way of speaking to yourself, and a method of finding and acting on your inner power. (It’s so much more fun than staying the same!)
  5. Many desires take practice and work to manifest. You may manifest part of your dream but experience parts of it as uncomfortable and/or out of alignment. This is actually wonderful because you are learning to discern between the desires of the inner self and who you think that you are. When you take action and work on a dream, you find what parts of you are in alignment with your dream and which parts of you need work and/or refinement. It’s a journey into self-discovery.
  6. The practice, work, and reprogramming lead to the discovery of the inner self, the part of you who always loves you and knows the way to higher frequencies and better solutions. In the beginning, the actual manifestation in physical form is the reward. Eventually, the discovery of the true self becomes a beautiful and meaningful journey. You learn who you truly are.
  7. All of the gifts of the universe (in material and spiritual form) lead to the recognition of the goodness of the universe. When you learn to manifest a particular gift, you can replicate it for others, teach and share the process, or simply share the light. It’s impossible to manifest positively without a higher vibration. Your work and efforts shine through, bringing a higher vibration to those around you.

 

A Few Tips

  1. See the opposite of a difficult situation. Visualize and feel harmony, possible solutions, and divert your attention from the problem.
  2. You can recall memories of happier times, physical vitality, and mental focus to change your feelings and outlook on life.
  3. Focus on the beauty of nature, the flow of life, and love of others to move into gratitude, which attracts an array of positive vibrations.
  4. When possible, see positive outcomes for others. Send pink light (love) to yourself and others. It raises your vibration.
  5. Remember that the universe loves and supports you. Make time to tap into this larger and more wonderful world.

Moving Out of Fear and Into Love

There are actually good reasons for feeling fear. First of all, we always feel fear when we act on the heart because the world teaches us to go in the opposite direction (away from the inner self.) The outer world of duality resists the motion of wholeness associated with finding the inner self.

Yet, nothing is as fulfilling as connecting with the inner self, and life changes when we live from the heart. We learn to identify the energy associated with our soul. We gain awareness of energy as a whole and learn how it resonates with us. We learn how to create our inner desires, find our gifts, and share them with others.

There are also other reasons for feeling fear. They involve mass consciousness, taking a leap in faith, listening to the heart (when it doesn’t make sense), trusting the universe, and resistance.

1) When we step into the light, it involves a leap. It means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step.

Take the first step and continue by repeating until it works or morphs into another form. You will find help; the universe will not abandon you.

2)  The outer world does not encourage the huge wave of awakening. When we expand into our inner self, we can receive a wave of fear from mass consciousness (the lower emotions of the world at large.)

If you focus on the inner self as often as possible, you will find a way to move through the resistance. (It’s not easy, but you can move through it by using your will and determination.)

3) Mass consciousness resists personal change. Mass consciousness is a compilation–or cloud of energy–based on the lowest emotions and thoughts on the planet. When we feel a lower emotion such as fear and/or anxiety, mass consciousness increases the lower feeling. It’s helpful to ask the universe to delete the connection with lower energies and align us with the inner self.

The universe responds when we ask for help. It hears us more easily if we ask often and meditate.

4)  When we step into love and the inner self, it means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step. It’s normal to feel afraid, uneasy, or agitated before taking a step, and we have to trust the universe. The universe always has a bigger, better plan.

Let go and trust. If you feel the light, it is leading you. Go forward!

5) It’s easier to feel fear about our destiny than it is to take a step. “Destiny’ is simply the soul’s path—the universe’s way of choosing experiences of teaching us to move into a higher place of being. It’s easiest to begin with a desire of the heart. Manifestation is the expression of an expanded vision of the beautiful and good aspects of self that originate in the heart.

Learn how to use tools such as visualization, positive thoughts, and the power of love.  Study angels, read books, and practice changing how you see your life. (There is a great network of “love”, which will support you.)

6) The pressure and feelings of fear will lessen when you decide to move in the direction of the soul. The pressure lessens as you listen and commit to your inner self. The relief is often immediate!

7) Moving into awakening can also bring feelings of uncertainty to the surface. While we may feel unhappy in our experience of “reality”, relinquishing control can feel difficult. We have expectations of how life should look and feel. 

Control comes from the ego. Allow your “reality” to rearrange itself in a new manner. It’s okay. The new reality will be much better.

8) When we step into intuition, it can take time to distinguish between the soul and ego—and to have a consistent feeling of direction. (This can feel frightening.) The inner self asks us to listen with the heart. It means following intuition or inner guidance as opposed to the voice of the outer world. This may feel strange or uncomfortable in the beginning. Often, the directions don’t make sense.

9) Over time, we learn to trust the inner voice and distinguish feelings and direction.After every leap, we trust the inner voice more. But it’s only in the area of the jump. There’s still more ground to cover.  We often feel the resistance of the lower self and the world, but it passes. Part of this occurs from learning to believe in the inner self, the true part of the self. (We also learn to believe in the universe’s ability to support us—or faith.)

Last Full Moon of the Decade

           Image by Josephine Walls

 

It’s the last full moon of the decade, and it appeared on 12/12 at 12:12 ET.  12 is the number of a cycle of completion in the material world; the next number is 13, which represents moving into the void of the unknown. (The void is an opening to discovery about the universe and the self. We use the information to create a new phase of life.)

This full moon cycle is supportive with many planets in earth, which provides grounding—as well as a good representation of where we stand at this time in life. The Sun is in Sagittarius, and it encourages generosity, happiness, and enlargement of lives. It’s particularly helpful when coupled with discipline and desire to move forward on the spiritual path.

Moon is Gemini, an air sign, and it encourages social events, exchange of information, and enhances communication.  Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) square Neptune (mysticism, illusion), causing cloudiness with obtaining intuitive information. (Lately, I’ve noticed many people focusing on the negative illusions in life as opposed to projecting positive truth from a calm state of mind.) Also, it’s okay if we can’t figure out what to do next; it’s part of the aspect.

The placement of the Sun, Moon, and aspects with Neptune show our current placement in life. Sun in Sagittarius beckons with expansion and emphasis on the inner spiritual journey. Moon in Gemini encourages quick conversations, mental distractions, and the desire to complete many tasks at once. Sun and Moon square Neptune cloud our ability to decipher the right direction and the “real” truth, but we can move through clouds of illusion by focusing on the heart.

Mercury (thought) is in Sagittarius, making the mind move faster and fire many thoughts at one time. It encourages creativity and self-expression. The placement is particularly helpful if we slow down and think about the more important aspects of life like love, caring, and the ability to help through visualization.

Venus (love) is in Capricorn, and love may be a bit cooler for the moment, but we can overcome it by projecting what we want to experience from others—and our capacity to share positive emotions and encouragement. Venus conjuncts (close to) Saturn (karma) in Capricorn gives the opportunity to build new structures and practices that help us to overcome karma. (For example, meditation, exercise, kindness, releasing old emotional patterns.)

Venus and Saturn conjunct (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which gives the power to pull off transformation. Together, it’s a powerful combination. Saturn can pull us through karma by teaching us to change our approach and find more strength and discipline. Venus teaches us that love for self is a powerful way of altering habits and patterns.

Mars (male energy, assertion) is well placed in Scorpio. It increases our strength, will power, and overall wellbeing, it gives the ability to move through the darkness of obstacles and stay fixed on our inner path. Mars trines (harmonious) Neptune (illusion, mysticism), heightening our inner vision and intuition.

Jupiter (good fortune) trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), giving good luck, innovation, and the ability to combine the old and new worlds. Uranus prefers innovation and new approaches to life. Their combined energy is harmonious and beneficial.

Summary:

  • As we move more deeply into the New Age, we’re asked to focus on the inner self and expand our journey into wisdom and true knowing. There are many distractions, and we continue to feel the chaos as indicated by Moon in Gemini and Sun/Moon square Neptune (mysticism, illusion). (We can’t see through the illusion, but we can take the next step on our path.)
  • It’s important to use our minds to communicate our knowledge and ideas. We can create expansion in our lives through expression—if we stay focused.
  • Venus and Saturn in Capricorn ask us to examine our habits, perceptions, and life direction to make changes through love and discernment. It’s time to actively pursue the soul and its preferred path. Both planets conjunct Pluto (transformation), which can give strength and power in rebuilding our lives.
  • Mars is powerful in Scorpio. Our willpower is strengthened in this placement.
  • In spiritual work, we continually combine the “old” self of the past and the new self of our dreams and desires. Jupiter trine Uranus boosts our ability to redefine ourselves in an innovative manner.

Conscious Change

Begin with a strong feeling of fortitude. You can do this. Now, create an image of living in the desired reality. Do something in the reality. Listen to song, dance around the room, enjoy your new “person”, plan a trip, or count your money. Smile and focus on a joyous feeling after completing the meditation. Everything is working for you.

Meditate for a few minutes every day. Connect with the universe and connect with your heart. Make sure your vision is leading you in the right direction. If so, take connection deeper.

Take one small action every day—preferably around 5-10 minutes for the first week. You can add time during the following week. Presumably, you’re working in a specific direction, so choose a task that will lead you to change. (Maybe, it’s staying calmer when your work needs a lot of focus or energy. It could revolve around exercise and diet. In this case, add a healthy meal or snack and add 10 minutes of exercise.) Compliment yourself for making the effort. (You rock, right?)

Patterns of old behavior and avoidance will always surface, particularly when you’re changing your life through spiritual work. It’s how you rewrite the energy of the ego that loves the old patterns and comfort zone. To change your feelings, you must rewrite your thoughts and emotions. (Thoughts and feelings can come from other people, past lives, or childhood. Often, they are not real. Observe, wait, and consider rewriting your feelings. How would you feel if you didn’t react or changed your behavior? Often, the answer is “free”.)

Discern between the heart and the outer self. When making a decision or choice, ask if the answer comes from the inner self (heart) or the outer self. It takes time to read answers correctly, and it’s helpful to notice when the answers are almost always correct. (You will usually have “areas” that are more advanced than others.)

It’s very helpful to remember the most important reason for the work lies in seeking awakening—the lovely feeling of connection with the universe, the rush of intuition, and the alignment of the soul with the physical world. Yes, you can create a whole, new reality, but you also create a better connection with who you truly are—the most beautiful and light qualities of yourself.

Follow Your Path

Following your inner path is part of awakening. You find the path by listening to your heart. The heart knows your deepest desires. It brings connection to the inner self.

All positive intuition comes from the heart and awakening. You can learn 1,000 techniques, but the heart leads the way. It knows what you love—and how to take you there. It receives a broadcast from the universe, which is translated through the senses and emotions. When you listen to the heart, you are connected at the right time and in the right way.

All true journeys lead to the inner self. Everything else is simply a diversion. It won’t bring satisfaction, joy, or fulfillment.

Meditation is the best way of listening. Visualization is the best way of creating the next step on your path. (Everything in the universe responds to visuals and feelings; it’s how we create experiences in the physical world.) Visualization plus positive feelings can create rapid change. (If you can’t visualize, find an image. Look at it and develop a positive, flowing feeling.)

Part of the path is learning about the duality of life. You learn what and who brings alignment with the heart. These experiences teach about energy, boundaries, and how to live your life—as well as speaking your truth. Everything is energy, and it’s how you learn to read it.

Courage is required on the path of the heart. You move through fear and limitation to become more of who you truly are. In the big picture, it teaches you to see the larger part of yourself—and to align with it.  It’s how you travel to your inner self.

Through this process, you learn practices of connection. You learn to listen to your heart, and you learn how to find the light, which illuminates your journey.
