The Magic of Manifestation

 

Image by Susan Boulet

 

  1. Manifestation is a natural development of meditation. As you become attuned to your inner self, it’s natural to seek expansion of this inner state. Creation of new events, aspects of life, and inner development come from focusing on a specific area of life while seeing, feeling, and experiencing it in a new way. You evolve and expand by creating more of the same inner state in areas of your life where energy and understanding are lacking.
  2. Growth involves expansion and experimentation. Typically, some of your intuitions, thoughts, and feelings are correct in a specific area of life. By observing, you learn how to listen, visualize, think, and feel more accurately. You learn to tap into the parts of life, which are more aligned with the inner self. (For example, your inner self does not think fearful thoughts about the world throughout the day. It doesn’t feel angry about your relationships. It might encourage you to develop some aspect of your life and pay attention to your personal insights. But it doesn’t project and develop negativity.)
  3. Manifestation involves duality. It involves releasing the not-self, which created the current situation, and nourishing the true self, which creates a new “reality.” The current physical self unites with inner self, who receives direction from the universe. By listening and acting intuitively, progress is made.
  4. It’s helpful to bless the “good” in life while continuing to hold the visual or feeling of the desire. In this way, you honor both worlds. It’s also useful to note any progress, persistence, or the smallest motions toward your goal. Accept and bless all positive hints and signs.
  5. Let your heart guide you. It’s how you learn to hear to become intuitive. Take small risks, step into expansion, and learn the process of stop and go (flow.) Part of manifestation involves discovery through learning about your correct/incorrect intuitions, actions, and the inner and outer self. The outer self (ego) is programmed by life. It’s the cause of resistance and sabotage. The inner self teaches about alignment with the universe. (It’s easy to confuse the two voices, but the work of manifestation teaches discernment.) Every manifestation and/or heart’s desire leads to more understanding of the inner self.
  6. Your manifestation is correct when it leads you into generosity, kindness, and love. (If you’re feeling jealous, competitive, or wanting too much, you’re on the wrong path.) The right manifestation teaches letting go of negative thoughts and feelings. It doesn’t mean you don’t see the truth. It means you react and judge less.
  7. This step may seem self-explanatory, but manifestation is like everything in your life. You have to make up your mind to do it, and your efforts must remain consistent. The time will come when you don’t want to do it, or you don’t think it works. It may also feel like too much effort when your world is staying in a perfect place or falling apart. It’s weird, but that’s when you need it most. (There are also times when you may need a coach or someone who believes in your ability to stay with the process.)
  8. If you stay with the work, you will evolve. Your manifestation may take longer than you think. It may come in an entirely different form, or it may perfectly reflect your desire. Regardless, you will have developed a stronger connection with the inner self, learned the art of altering thoughts and emotions, and expanded your intuitive abilities. More importantly, you stepped into the incredible threshold where the universe and your consciousness meet.

Raising Consciousness to a Higher Level

 

Raising your consciousness can help as the planetary weather draws attention to aspects of life, which require our attention and/or a change in perspective. Problems and issues occur on a lower wave of consciousness—a lower vibration. When you raise your consciousness, you can see them from a different perspective.

It’s important because you tend to see yourself as “wrong” when correcting or examining an issue. Although the solutions are not always easy, we can find the strength to see life differently, take the next step, or calm our emotions. (Many of us are clearing patterns from past lifetimes. It’s hard work, and it takes energy.)

When you want to raise your consciousness, it’s fairly simple. It may take several repetitions for a day or two, but it’s doable. Choose from the exercises to discover what works best for you.

1) Focus on the heart chakra where emotions are balanced. There is no motion—only unconditional love. You can see pink or emerald green light in heart space or middle of the chest (and emanate it into the space around you.) Simply thinking about the heart chakra takes you into a softer, quieter place. The heart is the center of your chakra system. This exercise balances the energy of the lower and upper chakras.

2) All problems relate to some form of fear. (We all have it although I think humanity is moving out of it.) Imagine the energy of your problem and send love to it. Love diminishes fear, and it will alter your consciousness temporarily. After all, the issue is “up” for examination, clearing, and healing. You’ll feel freer without it.

3) Emotions do not always emanate from you. If you briefly feel sad, angry, or another strong emotion–and the emotion grows stronger–it is probably not your emotion. You can ask for a higher level of consciousness and to disconnect from mass consciousness. (It often requires several “takes” for this to work.) When your emotions clear, take a few minutes to visualize your desired future. This practice brings in more love and courage as well as a higher vibration.

4) Call on the angels or write an angel letter. Angels wait for your call. You can ask for angels to surround you with feelings of peace, bliss, happiness, or understanding. You can also ask for their help with a problem. (I’ve found it’s best to ask for their help to come softly, gently, and joyously to avoid abrupt changes in my life. The gentle changes feel nicer.)

5) Nature wants to help with your healing process. Energy collects in body as a result of spiritual, emotional, or mental tension. You can sit outdoors and ask for energy to heal your body or clear the mind. Walking in nature quiets the soul. The colors, shapes, and patterns are perfect for the body. You’ve walked enough when the mind becomes quiet without interruptions from thoughts. These techniques are particularly helpful when you ask for the healing presence of nature.

These practices often lead to non-ordinary solutions, realizations, and intuitions.

Overcoming Darkness with Light

 

Sometimes, the world seems dark and strange. It’s difficult not to feel specific world events or significant weather, but it’s important to raise our vibration–if we want things to change in a positive sense.

 Below are a few of my favorite techniques. These tips and techniques are helpful in raising our vibration and seeing the goodness in the world. By raising our vibration, we move back into peace and harmony, which pulls in the frequency of positive change.

  1. Affirm the power of love and have faith in the universe. Believing in the power of love and light is part of utilizing it. (The “feeling” and faith are part of sending light. Visualization and connection are also important.)
  2. Send light and love to the geographical location of any disturbance. Send light to everyone who is involved in the problem. Imagine love and light changing and raising the energy of the location.
  3. Focus on peace. We can radiate it through ourselves–and out into the world. Make a strong choice about placement of consciousness. Encourage others to do the same.
  4. See the opposite of a current situation. See peace instead of violence.  See a safe and beautiful world. (Take 5 or 10 minutes to “see” this clearly.)
  5. Believe in the power of spiritual work. Meditating, thinking positive thoughts, and helping others do a great deal in creating a better world. The work helps, and the desired change is coming.
  6. Avoid reactive people. It’s impossible to observe when people strongly express their opinion. Stay neutral and work from a place of love. Observe and detach from the media. (We’re leaving the time of Kali Yuga when negative vibrations were attractive and inviting. The media makes life seem worse by focusing on negativity. Choose to be different and stay focused on the positive.)
  7. KNOW there is a great deal of love on this planet. We may not always see it, but love and light are the underlying fabric of matter. And the light is growing. (A good intuitive can “see” it.)

Specific Tips

  • Weather. It’s best to work with severe weather by thinking about the geographical area and sending love (pink light) to loved ones and the beauty of the location. Imagine love like a soft, pink cloud, covering and protecting everything. (Please don’t try to move the storm.)
  • People When experiencing irritation, disagreement, or negative energy with a loved one or friend, pull back from the situation. Refrain from thoughts identifying the other person as “wrong”. See a solution strongly and surrender the situation to the universe. (Whenever possible, do not dwell on negative thoughts and feelings about the other person. Think about their strengths and positive skills.) It can take a few weeks for the energy to change, but a different, calmer feeling should come in a few days. (Don’t share opinions while the energy is changing!)
  • More People. Learn to detect the energetics of a person, which goes beyond actions and words. Notice wishes for changes in their behavior and pull personal desires back. Gently project happiness for the person.
  • Social Media New, and Politics. Allow other people to have judgments. Don’t correct them. Make the experience about remaining neutral and positing positive information.When we remain neutral, the person will seek out someone who strongly agrees or disagrees. In general, negative people want negative energy. Don’t play the game. (Also, people learn from mistakes, and we are not their teachers – unless they ask.)
  • Pause. Situations often change when we don’t react, talk, or think about them. Pausing returns us to the inner self where unusual and happy answers are discovered. When in this quiet place, reflect on the beauty of the inner self and the physical world.

Using Our Gifts

If we continue to search for the soul, hold our vision, and walk in love and beauty, the landscape will change. We’re recalibrating and changing with the new energies. Sometimes, we need to remember and use our gifts to make the passage easier.

  1. Using visualization is one of our incredible gifts. When we visualize, we create. It requires time and repetition, but it works. When we combine visualization and the light of meditation, results come faster—and they resonate with our heart.
  2. We can remember our true identity. We are children of universe with powers of light and goodness. It may take time to develop those inherent powers, but they are there.
  3. We can speak to ourselves with kind words of encouragement. We can notice our efforts to move into the light and make small changes in life. In general, our words of encouragement should feel stronger than our critical, inner voice. It helps in accomplishing what our inner self wants.
  4. The placement of consciousness alters our feelings and thoughts. When we meditate, connect with the inner self, or engage in simple tasks, which give joy, we find our center. We move into a higher vibration. When we live in at a higher frequency, life often alters its flow.
  5. We have the power to send light. Simply go within and send light (and color) to anyone or any situation. For example, send light to a difficulty as opposed to thinking negative thoughts. Send light to your day, friends, and animals.
  6. We can ask the universe for a higher level energy level and more inner connection. If we keep asking, the universe responds. Sometimes, it’s easier than doing it for the self.
  7. We can project a positive feeling and outcome into the future. It doesn’t always work because we are learning a lesson and/or rewriting a belief. But it will always work with a few things, which encourages our efforts for the future as we move into mastery.
  8. We can review memories of joyful times, moments of deep connection, and periods of time when we stepped into our power. We can also imagine tapping into inner power and using it more effectively. (Consciousness follows the “wand” of the mind.
  9. At least once or twice each day, we can meditate on the power and feeling of love. It is one of the most powerful forces in the universe, and it changes everything—if we let enough of it into our heart space.

7 Ways to Increase Your Inner Power

 

These are simple steps, which work well with practice. Practicing on a daily basis is the best way of finding inner power, but you can jump in with any of these exercises.

1) Believe in your power to connect with the infinite “good”, which is sometimes known as the akashic field. It is larger than you, holds the answers, and can connect you into a wonderful place. It’s linked with your inner power to change your life. (Changes do not always come as you wish, but they do always create a better life for you.)

2) Recall times of connection when life flowed into place, and you felt a marvelous energy lifting you above your “normal” experiences. When you are in this place, you locate new answers, people react differently, and the process of life takes on new meaning. There is a sensation of fulfillment. (You don’t have to find it “now.” Simply meditating on the feeling can bring in a change.)

3) Meditate outdoors. Nature feels the connection and amplifies it because she is in harmony with the divine. It’s particularly beautiful when the trees and wind move with your breath. It brings a lovely, peaceful feeling.

4) Visualize what you want to experience as opposed to what you don’t want. It’s human nature to focus on the negative which only creates more of the undesirable. It’s fun to think of yourself as a superman/woman with the power to shift the direction of life from negative to positive.  It’s possible to alter your life through visualization–and to bring your dreams into physical form.

You can also focus on the feeling of your soul (happiness, joy, comfort) and project this into the present and the future. Your soul knows what you should experience and feel. Besides, few things feel better than this.

5) Change your thoughts and emotions. Every problem is surrounded by repetitive and negative thoughts. (It’s easy to know when you’re experiencing them because your energy level changes.) Repetitive thoughts are accompanied by reactions. It’s important to create a new response. You can speak from your heart, ask what you can learn from the situation, or ask the universe to help you see it differently.

6) See the beauty in life. Take time to slow down, connect with yourself, and focus on finding the beauty and rhythm of life. When you become aware that life moves with a specific rhythm, which can be energizing, you align with the universe. When you align with the universe, the current experience of life will unfold and expand.

7) The last step is a bit different. All of these exercises alter your frequency to a higher place, but you can also become totally present. You can put your awareness in your body, observe your thoughts and feelings, and give thanks for the human experience.

Everything on earth passes through cycles. We feel highs and lows as well as positives and negatives. When we accept this as the human experience, it often fades away. It’s also helpful to learn when your lower emotions and thoughts pass through your consciousness. When you understand the catalyst, the length of time, and cycle, patterns change more quickly and take on a new, higher form.

Working with Light

Part of inner work involves finding your inner light and voice (intuition.) It’s easiest to begin by meditating and focusing on the heart, which connects you to a place of infinite light and love.

  1. At first, you may to “imagine” sending light and/or love. It takes time and practice to bring about results with  the invisible, spiritual world. If you continue, you will feel the energy and know it’s working.
  2. Focus on your heart and feel pink light (love) flowing into you. You can also imagine a pink cloud around you, which delivers unconditional love from the universe. Breathe pink light for 2 or 3 minutes. Feel the love.
  3. Send light to yourself and future opportunities. For opportunities, imagine a gentle beam of light as it illuminates a specific time in space–or see a door opening to a new way of life. (With problems, imagine the problem as a shape like a cloud. Send light to the particles of the cloud and see the cloud dissolving. Part of the trick of this exercise is sending light as opposed to thinking about the future or problem.)
  4. Use light to find answers and solutions. (You don’t have to know the answer.) See the light shining on the future, and you are experiencing joy and relief as a result. (It’s interesting, but I believe every light worker helps in solving problems for many other people by working on their own lives. It pushes the solution out in the “bowl” of larger consciousness.)
  5. Send light to any tired, achy parts of the body. Ask to see your body as healthy and whole. “See” your body moving easily and freely.
  6. You can send light and love to other people. You can imagine that their problems are solved, or they feel happier and healthier.
  7. Focus on your desired future and see it as a strong image. Send light to it and imagine living in this place of consciousness. (The light corrects our thoughts and visualizations. It also awakens our intuition.)

Find the Light

 

Light and love are always the answer. They hold the highest vibrations on the planet. If we call on the light, the universe answers. But it’s easier to access “light” through specific techniques.

Light responds differently with specific situations and meditations. These brief exercises work well for a variety of problems, including receiving more enlightenment and understanding. When we see and feel life differently, it often alters into a higher vibration—and brings more positive outcome.

“Real” love feels unconditional, soft, and centered. It brings healing, answers, and gentle self-motivation. It helps in seeing the good in the self and others. It is like looking through a beautiful, rainbow lens with a heart, which feels uplifted and calm. All of the exercises will help in finding this place.

Here are a few tips for working with the Inner Self.

  1. Come to center and find inner self on a daily basis. Meditation helps in finding the true self. From this place, wisdom, self-love, and peace flow. The answer is in the center; it feels simple and true when you find it. (It’s easiest to call in the light by becoming still. It’s helpful to pull inward to feel the inner self. )
  2. Put your attention on happiness. Happiness—like all inner states—requires attention and contemplation. (It’s actually a habit.) Notice all of the things, which bring happiness in your life. Listen to your voice to see if it conveys happiness. Notice your feelings when you look at objects, read emails, or travel short distances. Make a conscious effort to expand and find happiness throughout the day.
  3. Peace acts like a river; it eases and soothes emotion. There are no thoughts when we align with peace, only stillness. Imagine experiencing peace before/after others attempt to pull us into drama. (As our energy level heightens, others try to pull you into their drama. By detaching from their drama and visualizing a happy outcome, we can return to place of peace.
  4. Know that life moves in a cyclical pattern, marked by highs and lows. The challenge lies in finding and observing the pattern, altering emotions, and making “center” or the true self more important than the feelings and situation.
  5. Conflicting thoughts comprise part of spiritual growth. It’s how we put ourselves together and resolve the many parts of the self. When the answer comes, it will be simple. It will resonate with the inner self. Until this time comes, notice the feelings. It’s okay to feel two, conflicting emotions and/or thoughts. Eventually, the thoughts do bring resolution and wholeness.
  6. Pull the mind away from upsetting thoughts and situations. Return to the heart. Practice meditation to return to center, then visualize a positive outcome in a place of stillness.
  7. Know the process is working, and the universe wants to help. While many of these tips and exercises are not logical, they follow spiritual law. Our visualizations thoughts, and emotions alter the course of life because they invoke—and the most  powerful part of our inner being.

Working with the Outer Self

  1. You can also use light with the self who interacts in the physical world. (This is actually how you act on the inner self’s insights.) You can begin by seeing success in your endeavor and follow it with a tangible step. Every step counts, and they add up.)
  2. All new work in the outer world requires courage and persistence. You’re following your intuition, and you may not know exactly how to move in the right direction. Decide on a task, see in fruition, and take a chance.  (Any response is always a positive answer–whether it seems like it or not.)
  3. Overcoming fear and resistance is part of the challenge. You (and everyone else) have patterns and blocks. Overcoming them is part of spiritual success. Sometimes, you simply feel the fear and go forward.
  4. Find a knowledgeable person to help with your endeavor. It saves time, effort, and energy.
  5. Focus on small tasks by creating a  visual or feeling of your desirable outcome. When you feel doubt or hesitation, return to your image and feeling. The images and feelings surrounding your desires come partially from the universe, which will come to your aid if you are consistent in invoking it through your thoughts, images, and placement of consciousness. Love yourself for making this effort.

Easy, Happier Change

 

As nature alters the outer world with new life, it’s a perfect time for change. It’s lovely to create change that positively alters the direction of your life.

The world is full of tips for an easier, happier, and better life, but it really begins with you. The biggest changes come from finding the inner self, and they make life better, and happier (in the long run—at least.)

If you start with inner work, it’s easier than the way you’re taught in the “real” world. When you find your inner self first, the universe helps. Sometimes, the help comes through other people, a class, or a realization. Other times, it is simply a feeling that is used as a guide to find the way.

Here are a few tips for creating change from the inside out.

Listen to your intuition. Positive intuition is the voice of the heart, the direction of the inner self. By practicing with it, the voice – and feeling – become more noticeable. You can ask for the best way to perform a task, when it’s best to call a friend, or how to create more abundance and love. (You already listen to it in the parts of life that you’ve mastered and/or developed.)

Find balance between the spiritual and physical worlds. Discover the right balance of passive/assertive action for you.  Spend time in visualization/meditation and seeing all of life moving in the wonderful direction of your desire. Allow emotions and thoughts to move into a high vibration. Then, take a positive step to enact your dream in the physical world. (A small step is fine. Just follow your inner guidance.) After the action, visualize positive results and repeat the process.

Use your power. You’re more powerful than you think! Begin by visualizing small, happy events – a parking space, a check in the mail, or a gift from a special friend. Energize the desire. Think of times when you focused strongly and created a change. Remember when you spoke up in a calm, powerful voice. Remember when you’ve helped your self and others to find a better place of being.

Find the heart space. Your heart is the center of your being, the place of love, where you can center, send love to others, and find the help from the Universe. The heart tells you about everything that is true, lovely, and eternal. (It’s also a wonderful place to rest and detach from the world.)

Alter your perception. See the good in life. Notice the beauty, joy, and love. It’s possible to change aspects of life by changing the your inner focus. Think about the light in loved ones, notice the color of flowers, and reflect on the gift of the motion of life. (On a more specific level, you could decide your current job is leading to a wonderful one, or your bills are decreasing as your income increases. Regardless, the practice moves you into a higher state of consciousness.

By practicing these tips, you can make life easier and better because the tips engage the inner self and a different, higher part of consciousness. Over time, they will become habitual and will help a great deal. At the beginning of the practice, they will increase your energy and bring positive emotions.
