In earlier post – The Art of Manifestation -1 – we explored how our mind-state typically oscillates in different directions. Now, how do we move towards gaining mastery over the process of manifestation? Is Manifestation an art or science or both or something totally random? Nobody knows, otherwise all of us would be conjuring gold coins out of thin air!
I see manifestation (the process of converting an intention into something real) as both an art and science. Manifesting an intention into reality can simply be a case of taking few steps and, in that sense, it is a science. However, our circumstances and realities are far too complex for science to be able to accurately ensure an event. There is where Art and our intuitive faculties comes into picture.
One way to begin mastering manifestation is to test various hypotheses. Here is one of the the most powerful hypotheses ever:
You are your circumstances.
This hypothesis implies that each and every detail of your outer reality is an exact replica of your outer reality, If your reality is a hotch-potch then it indicates that your inner reality – the complete web of memories, thoughts and emotions – is messy. Cleaning up this mess may not be easy but this is the simplest and most powerful too available. Whenever, something is not happening to your liking, check what are the confusions, doubts and contradictions in your mind.
Here is a hard-hitting test – whatever is happening in your life is happening because it happened first in your mind. Check with yourself as honestly as possible (may not be easy as we all love our illusions) – about whichever results you are NOT able to achieve in your life – did you have concerns and fears regarding those goals? If yes, then the hypothesis “You are your circumstances” holds true – it is so simple – the first rule of manifestation is to have clear thoughts and intentions.
Universe does not understand confusion. The Universe is waiting – for a clear command – ask clearly and you shall receive.
In the post “The Free Response -2”, the discussion moved from freedom to manifestation. According to me, the first step (and probably the “almost” last step as well) is to have clear intentions expressed in minutest detail.
Check your mind. Check your reality. Your mind is like a pendulum ever swinging in different directions. Your reality is a hotchpotch because you mind is almost always in a hotchpotch state.
Like in the post “The Free Response -2”, the entrepreneur had intentions but actually his mind was filled with doubts and negative possibilities:
Me: What exactly is your intention?
He: To close these sales.
Me: Not clear and detailed enough. Technically “closure” is a correct term in Sales, but for the mind, the “closure” could even be read as closure of lead without conversion.
He: Is it?
Me: Maybe. Maybe not, but why take the risk? Why not specifically intend that you will get the Purchase Order of a specific amount?
He: Sounds interesting!
To be continued!
In part 1 of this post series, I had shared a discussion with an entrepreneur where his passion for Stand-up Comedy was revealed. We have begun manifesting that “part of his life” to reality. In the meantime, the discussion on regular business continued:
Me: Let us get back to your poor Sales Closure. Any current leads in processing?
Entrepreneur: Yes, I have two leads that I would love to close ASAP.
Me: You said you are anxious. What exactly are your thoughts?
He: I feel they might fizzle out.
Me: Then most likely they will fizzle out.
Me: There is power in using the principle, “What I think, happens”. If you consistently think that you will win those orders then there is a better chance that you will think, communicate and act constructively to achieve your goals.
We delved a bit more on this. He agreed to try this out. Let us see what happens to those leads.
Maybe the elusive “magic” to creating “manifestation” in our lives is simply consistent focused thinking. It may not be easy though because the mind will almost always trip you every other second.
