Problems, Problems!

Blocks to manifesting reality

If you are interested in manifestation you’ve probably tried reading many of the websites and articles posted on the Internet – and regrettably, you’ve probably had little success with your attempts to manifest what you desire.

One of the questions I get from my readers over and over again is why there is such a discrepancy between what the gurus and other spiritual experts (that is to say, self appointed “experts”) say, and the reality of most people’s individual experience.

First and foremost, the main reason I believe we fail to manifest is that are all subject to limiting beliefs which prevent us manifesting reality in a way we find acceptable or desirable.

The very nature of limiting beliefs is that they evolved in childhood to protect us from those things which were threatening, frightening, dangerous to our well-being, or, in the worst possible cases, so abusive that they tended to erode our sense of self and our spirituality.

It’s no wonder, therefore, that limiting beliefs have usually gone deep underground (into the unconscious), and are not at all obvious to us in our adult lives.

Yet the fact of the matter is that limiting beliefs are what stop us from achieving the things we desire to achieve, and therefore for manifestation to be successful, we need to address them. In fact we need to destroy them.

One of the circularities in this is – as you may already realize – the inherent impossibility of digging out limiting beliefs when they are so deeply embedded in the subconscious mind, out of our awareness.

Fortunately, one clue you have to the limiting beliefs which stop you manifesting what you want is the way your behavior is adapted to prevent yourself from doing certain things.

Inhibition is a sure sign there’s some kind of danger in an action for you – and danger is usually based on a limiting belief which begins “I can’t” or “I’m not good enough” or “I’m bad” or “I’m not lovable”.

There aren’t many fundamental human limiting beliefs; they fall into only a few categories – the problem is that this in itself may not help you identify your limiting beliefs because the exact nature of your belief can take many forms.

Nonetheless closely scrutinizing your behavior and things that you avoid is likely to provide a key to the door into your subconscious so that you can address the limiting beliefs which hold you back.

Needless to say the next question people ask me is “How can I deal with limiting beliefs so they don’t stop me manifesting?”

That’s a difficult one. I think everybody has to find their own route through these limiting beliefs – you need to find a way of dealing with them that is acceptable to you.

There are many modalities, but deep psychotherapy has proved to be successful for many people. I know you may not have the money or the time to access deep psychotherapy, and that’s a problem, I believe.

For there’s no question that while you hold limiting beliefs you won’t be able to manifest very much – that’s very nature of limiting beliefs:  they are designed to keep you in a safe space, which usually corresponds to some childlike state of mind that you created for yourself to avoid the threats of your environment.

I’ve offered a number of suggestions about how you can remove limiting beliefs on another website I’ve written – find out why limiting beliefs are so pernicious and so difficult to deal with when you’re trying to manifest reality on this website.

If you have any questions about this, then there are a number of good books you can read on the subject.


A Great New Website On Law Of Attraction

You will all be delighted to know that I have discovered a great new website which explains the law of attraction more clearly than any other website I have ever seen.

Now I know you you may think that’s an exaggeration because there are so many good websites on attraction – and that’s certainly true, but I think the ineffectiveness of these websites is demonstrated all too clearly by the fact that so few people actually achieve any success with manifestation.

Does it not stand to reason that if websites that purported to explain the Law of attraction and the mysteries of manifestation were actually fulfilling their function, there would be far fewer people who are experiencing poverty, deprivation and unhappiness in the world ?

I think the answer to that question is obvious – you have to take it as a given that the poor performance of websites is represented by the limited amount of success that people have in terms of manifesting a new reality.

Now one of the reasons for this is undoubtedly the fact that comparatively few people are particularly serious about getting what they want, although having said that, it’s undoubtedly true that many people would be more successful if they were less distracted by the cultural demands of our society.

In other words, I’m talking about the way in which celebrity culture, bad news, constructive stories designed to hook our attention or promote our fear, can distract us from the reality of our own existence, and in particular, the reality of what’s going on for us in our internal emotional world.

Because it’s in our internal emotional world that the magic of manifestation will always take place.

You see nobody can manifest anything for anyone else – the process of getting what you want by means law attraction is absolutely down to each individual to form clear goals and then a strategy for achieving. It’s a purely personal thing; you can’t manifest something for anyone else.

Now although this may seem harsh, and perhaps even slightly unfair, the reality of our existence is that though each and every one of us is a part of the universal whole, we are still separate individuals on the planet Earth.

What this means in practice is that though we have the capacity to communicate with each other psychically, and to send out instructions using the power of our minds to the universal energy, we cannot manifest material goods for someone other than ourselves.

So having resigned yourself to that reality, you might want to know how it is that people can achieve great success with manifestation – and the truth here is that it’s about focus, of both the mind and the intention.

You can find a complete explanation of the core elements of manifestation using the law of attraction on this website – which is the one I referred to the start of this brief article – http://www.twentytimeslonger.com – where the entire process manifestation is described in great detail, along with a number of tips, tricks and techniques which you can use to speed up the process of co-creating your reality universe’s cooperation.

For those amongst you who remain doubters, all I can say is that there’s no proof like your own success – which means, in practice, that you need to get out there, set your objectives and start trying to manifest the reality that you want for yourself.

What I will add, however, is that it’s absolutely critical that you should be able to overcome any limiting beliefs that you hold about yourself which could interfere with the process of manifestation. Wondering what this means? Well you can find out if you follow the link above. Good luck with manifestation!

 


Hypnosis Simply Works

I came across a website recently on the subject of hypnosis and was very impressed with it. You can click here to see it.

I think over the years a great deal of mystique and indeed misinformation has grown up around the subject of hypnosis and what it can actually do.

We’ve all been influenced by stage hypnotists of dubious repute who have performed sickening exploitative tricks on poor sops to have been duped into coming up onto stage and joining them in their act….

…. Or have we? One of the things that hypnotists will repeatedly tell you about this phenomenon is that nobody can be persuaded to do anything against their will. That hypnotism is in fact something that a subject has to consent to before they will go under the influence of the hypnotist.

So definitely some confusion or lack of clarity – or deliberate misinformation here!

But I’m going to work on the assumption that most people under hypnosis are not going to be so susceptible that they’ll simply do what they’re told – that for example, if their moral values are called into question, they’ll simply find a way of skirting the instructions of the stage hypnotist so that they retain their integrity (in their own eyes).

In other words, people who are acting under hypnosis in a way that seems bizarre or peculiar or downright outrageous are doing that as a matter of choice.

And if that’s true, then it means that you can safely use hypnosis for changing your own behaviour patterns where they are unhelpful, and developing new ways of being in the world. Or, more specifically, you can use self hypnosis to do this, because hypnosis generally refers to a situation where there is a hypnotherapist acting as facilitator, to engage you in a state of mind which is different to normal waking consciousness.

And what is this difference to normal waking consciousness? Well, it (hypnosis) seems to be a state of mind where the critical faculty of the conscious mind is either turned off completely or considerably reduced, so the suggestions made by the hypnotist – or by the recording to which you are listening, in the case of self hypnosis – can enter directly into the subconscious mind and take effect without interference from the critical factor.

And why does listening to hypnotist or self hypnosis recording cause a different state of consciousness develop? The answer appears to lie in the fact that when you pay particular focused attention to the recording, you naturally enter into a different state of consciousness known as “trance” – and trance  is defined as a half-conscious state characterized by an absence of response to external stimuli, typically as induced by hypnosis or entered by a medium. We use the expression in contexts such as this: “she put him into a light trance”.

Just in case it’s not obvious, trance doesn’t refer to this:

One major reason I’m talking about hypnosis in the context of self-improvement is because it can be useful for people who want to facilitate self-development by means of the use of manifestation and the Law of Attraction…

As you may well be aware, the Law of Attraction depends on you making investment in some kind of belief system, which you can then energetically send out into the universe in the hope that changes in your physical world will manifest as a result.

That investment is generally emotional, or energetic, to put it in a more general form, although there is of course also an investment of time involved in any manifestation process. It’s also possible to argue that whatever investment you have in the status quo is going to be given up, and that the emotional consequences of that forsaking your current situation are also some kind of investment in changing your future. (Changing it for the better, of course.)

But investment aside, how can hypnosis help you in using the law of attraction to manifest a different reality?

The first and most important way is that it can actually be used to eliminate limiting beliefs which hold you back. Time and time again I speak to people who failed to use the manifestation principle set out so frequently and so accurately on the Internet and who have absolutely no idea why it hasn’t worked for them.

But in fact the minute you start interviewing them in any depth about what’s “going on” for them, you immediately discover they have large amounts of limiting beliefs which are getting right in the way of their successful progress towards a different outcome – of any kind – which they may be trying to achieve.

Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs are pernicious, subtle, and difficult to eradicate, because they live in the subconscious mind and they’re the product of many years’ reinforcement – reinforcement, that is, of our behavior, which is (incredibly) designed to show us that the things we believe to be true about ourselves are indeed true, thereby producing a self-reinforcing cycle which can go on for our entire lives unless we find some effective way of intervening.

Few people accept the extent or the power of their limiting beliefs, and continue to try and strive for a change in their circumstances which is absolutely impossible to achieve until they’ve done considerable work on themselves – psychological work, that is, to eradicate limiting beliefs.

And here the cycle comes full circle, because self hypnosis is a very powerful way – yet at the same time, mysteriously, a very gentle way – of eliminating limiting beliefs and replacing them with something much more functional and helpful to the person who is trying to change his or her own life for the better.

I recommend plenty of self hypnosis products to my clients, because I’m familiar g with the hypnotherapists who’ve recorded the messages on them… But what can you do? I’m simply recommending you try and find self hypnosis recordings using my best guidelines as follows:

  • first of all, find a website where the hypnotherapist is offering sample recordings, so that you can see whether or not you like the sound of the hypnotherapist’s voice
  • second, find a website where you can get a money-back guarantee within a reasonable period of time if you find that the technique doesn’t work for you
  • third, look at what the hypnotherapy website is offering. Are there recordings that seem questionable – for example offering things like hypnosis for breast enlargement (don’t laugh, this is a reality – one website on the Internet purported to be run by a reputable hypnotherapist is offering hypnotherapy for breast enlargement and penis enlargement… I need hardly point out that this is not only unethical, but also immoral)
  • and finally, find a website you like the look of, one which appears to you to be something you can trust and invest your money in with confidence.

As to which limiting beliefs you are actually going to deal with when you’re trying to manifest something using the Law of Attraction, well, that has to be up to you – but clearly, it follows that when you’re trying to make more money, then abundance and prosperity are your targets, so the limiting beliefs you need to start working on will be around self-worth and the accumulation of wealth.

Similarly, if you want a relationship, then you need to start working on self-worth and attractiveness, and possibly your charisma. You’ll find all of these things set out in detail on each website where you can buy products, so you shouldn’t have any difficulty choosing something….


Getting What You Want

All the techniques that you will ever need for manifestation using the Law of Attraction are described on the Internet – for example, all the info you need is here. Now I don’t pretend to be any kind of expert on manifestation and the Law of Attraction, but what I can tell you is that over the years I have had considerable success in actually getting what I want by using these techniques.

Come to think of it, perhaps I am an expert – LOL! I’m certainly more expert than a lot of other people who have written extensively on the subject, made vast fortunes out of their writings, and yet failed to enlighten anybody about how they are going to be any wiser, richer, happier, or more fulfilled after they’ve read those works.

If I sound a little cynical, assume I am, because I regard fooling people about how The Law of Attraction works – or indeed, any system for making money – or not giving them proper instructions, or not providing support when you call yourself a “teacher” to be lacking in integrity at best, and downright evil and misleading at worst.

Manifesting reality

We are living in a Christian culture, and in that culture it’s quite common to find people who believe that the Bible’s maxim  “ask and it shall be given unto you” refers to the Law of Attraction – in other words, a lot of authors have played into a fundamental belief we have in our society about the human “dominion” over all things – and power over the universe to get what we want through the use of that dominion.

Yet the reality (for those of us who truly understand the Law of Attraction) is rather different; the Law of Attraction actually refers to a process by which you can send out mental “instructions” or requests into the universal cosmic energy field.

These requests will trigger the universe to produce a series of events that may end up in you getting whatever you want.

“Ask and you shall receive” (a prayer) is a misjudgement, because it seems to imply a position of humility and humbleness, whereas successful manifestation undoubtedly comes from a position of confidence, control and command over the universe.

This discrepancy in approach (or perhaps it is a misunderstanding which has confused many people over the years) could be expressed thus: when you start to manifest anything using the Law of Attraction, you’re not asking the universe to give it to you, but you are commanding it to do so.

Of course that requires a very different energy from you than the power of prayer.

In short, you have to adopt a position of absolute, supreme, confidence and certainty that the universe is going to give you what you want – without this, you’re going to fail.

Furthermore, you need to have absolute clarity about your goals, because without that – you’re going to fail. And in addition, you need to take action of some kind which demonstrates to you and to the “intelligence” of the universe that you’re serious about getting what you want – without that, you’re going to fail.

So you can see that manifestation and the Law Of Attraction are not oh-so-simple processes. And let me ask you this: if you were setting out to learn some kind of demanding physical discipline like yoga, do you seriously imagine that you could reach a level of expertise and proficiency without tuition and help from somebody who was not only a qualified teacher, but could also convey the concept to you in a clear and simple way?

No, of course you could not, and the fact of the matter is that just like you would get help from a qualified yoga teacher if you were learning yoga, so you need qualified and experienced help from someone who can teach you about the Law of Attraction and manifestation when you’re trying to change your life for the better by using those esoteric concepts and principles.

The interesting thing is that manifestation is a concept we can use to change our reality very effectively, and not a complicated idea or philosophy – oddly enough, it’s actually quite simple, although a lot of people try and make it more complicated because this satisfies their desire to believe that the something esoteric going on.

And, after all wouldn’t esoteric have to be complicated?

Well no, because actually the Law of Attraction is a simple universal law which says something like this: set out your desires clearly enough and propel them into the universe using emotional energy of sufficient intensity, with sufficient belief in the power of the universe to manifest what you want, then the universe MUST produce an outcome in line with what you desire.

One of the reasons that Manifestation doesn’t work for most people is because they’re impeded by beliefs which they hold about themselves that stop them entering into a state 100% confidence and certainty about the possibility of manifestation working for them.

Good God, it’s actually bloody obvious isn’t it? If you are trying to get a relationship, and you think you’re not an attractive person and nobody would ever love you, then seriously, do you think you are going to get into a relationship?

The answer, obviously, is NO.

Yet most people who try manifestation overlook their limiting beliefs, and then they give up in despair, blaming everyone around them (except themselves) for the failure that they have manifested.

A failure which, incidentally, is most likely due to the fact that their beliefs are so fundamentally negative that they’ve manifested some aspect of their negativity, rather than the positive outcome they were trying to achieve.

The law of attraction can be very effective in producing the things we do not want – in other words, if you focus on the negative, you can produce negative things. If you focus on the positive you produce positive things.

The simple equation of input and output, of expectation and manifestation, the positive energy and negative energy is not rocket science.

It’s not rocket science, but it is a basic law of the universe and also of human nature. If you are trying to manifest a different reality for yourself, you’d be well advised to take note of it.

Now, with all of that said, it can seem quite cruel of the universe to actually fail to manifest whatever you want… you’ve spent time visualizing it, and produced a clear mental image of it… but nothing appears….. no matter how hard you try….

And, having said that, it’s a universal law of attraction (note the word universal) which governs manifestation, and so there is little doubt that if you actually spend time in the right way, using the right techniques, you will be able to manifest whatever you desire.

So if you’re having trouble, you might want to go and have a look at the website I linked to earlier in this article, because that is a very good place to discover all about the relaxation techniques, the meditation techniques, the state of mind best suited to visualization, the best methods of goalsetting, the emotional qualities of expectancy and self-belief, and the kind of action you need to take to ensure manifestation works for you.


The Energetic Component of Manifestation

The real power source behind manifestation is emotional energy.

It’s a common mistake among human beings to think that action represents power, because in the physical world actually there is often a great deal of truth in that statement.

The expression “power and control” sums it up: how we exert power in the everyday world depends on our actions, and the effectiveness of our actions depends on our power – it’s a complete circle.

In manifestation there is no such circle: energetic flow is linear, and interestingly enough it doesn’t matter whether it flows from you to the universe or in the opposite direction: all that is necessary is that there is a high level of energetic flow associated with your intention.

You see, it’s that energetic flow (which is not about physically exerting your will, but about impacting the formation of reality) which controls manifestation from the level at which everything in our planet is a potential reality.

When you tap into an energetic potential of your emotions, which are generated in turn by the emotional potentials of your intention or your vision, you can find a power that exceeds anything that you could possibly cultivate in other circumstances.

Used correctly, it is this power which actually inspires, and guides, and directs you in every way, all the way through to the manifestation process itself.

And of course one of things that helps to ensure that this energy flow takes place naturally and effectively is that you do not dissipate it.

One common method of dissipating energy required for manifestation is by talking to everybody about your intentions, and discussing with them how good it will be when you achieve your vision. I mean that goes without saying, because if that were not true you wouldn’t be trying to in tension manifest something using law of attraction as you are.

But the problem with talking to other people is that they feedback a kind of negative energy which compensates and counteracts your positive energy: people will say things like “Oh, you’re aiming too high” or “I don’t think you’re going to succeed” – and none of these statements will inject you with enthusiasm, passion or excitement!

After all it’s only the excitement, passion and enthusiasm that you have initially which leads to you being sufficiently motivated to try and in manifest some new reality using law of attraction.

Manifesting relaity

Ideas and intentions need to be backed up by reality creation

It makes a great deal of sense to keep your energy level secret, to keep your energy level to yourself, and to ensure that you have a clear vision of how you are going to use the product that you’re trying to manifest when it appears or is co-created in your reality by the universal energy.

To ensure that you have enough emotional energy to drive the process manifestation, there are several things that you can do:

  • One is of course to picture at the imaginatively imagination level benefits and advantages, and emotional state of mind that you’ll be in when you achieve whatever it is that you are manifesting – this involves focusing on the benefits advantages and general increase in your level of joy or satisfaction or pleasure or happiness.
  • A second is to focus on the ways in which you will feel different, and the things that you can do differently, which will be of a source of joy and delight to you when you have manifested your new reality.
  • A Third is to focus on why these things are important to you.
  • A Fourth is to focus on everything about the situation which you will manifest compared to the situation you’re in right now and how these things will be different.

You know what excitement is; you know what anger is, you know what fear is, so you know what an emotional state is, and you know what emotional energy is.

To be able to direct this emotional energy towards the product of your vision is the crucial element in manifestation which many people fail to master.

Visualize Your Desired Outcome

So, if you were to spend time thinking about your vision, you could do it in a meditative state or just by settling down in a chair into a point of stillness. And at that point you could then start to imagine the greatest potential outcome or advantage of your vision located somewhere just in front of you.

You can make this real, you can visualize it, you can sense it, you can perhaps imagine the taste and touch and sound of your vision when manifest. It’s important you don’t make any negative or critical judgments about what you’re perceiving, but you simply accept “what is”.

And as you do this, you can sense the level of energy, the sense the level of motivation you have, and sense the level of passion or, to put it another way, fervent desire for whatever it is that you’re trying to manifest.

As you do that, can you sense how low or high your energy your passion for the vision is – there has to be a great deal of personal passion and motivation for you to be able to manifest your vision in reality!

  • Useful questions to ask yourself are…..
  • Do you believe that you can manifest this vision in reality?
  • Do you actually feel excited by the prospect of it entering your life?
  • Are there reasons for it entering your life in accordance with your belief system?
  • Are you happy that morally and ethically you are working in tune with your deepest beliefs, values and judgments about the world?

You see the truth of the matter is that everything exists in some kind of energetic field, and every energy field is created and influenced by the person who lies or stands at its center – which in the case of your world is you!

Here’s an observation which is clear and straightforward, but often overlooked: the more powerful your focus, the more intense your focus, the higher your level of energy – which in practical terms means the higher your commitment to your vision – the more effective and powerful your energy field will be.

It’s not hard to imagine at this point that the energy field can extend on a high vibrational frequency out into the universe, and it may even be that the extent to which extends into the universe is determined by the level of energy that you’re putting into it.

Suffice it to say that this energy field, this outflow of energy, this flow of energy from you to the universe (or vice versa) is the one that will drive manifestation process.

In other words, it’s up to you to find the level of energy at which you can totally embody the potential and the vision and the opportunities that lie ahead of you when your reality changes because of the act of conscious creation.

You have seen, I have no doubt, in your own life, how anybody who holds very strong opinions about a particular subject tends to be the person who projects them with most force, and may even lead the group dynamic.

So it is with you and your intention to manifest reality – the stronger your feelings, and the more focused your thoughts, and the more able you are to control the flow of that energy, the more successful you will be in manifesting reality.


Manifesting Success

To manifest success, you have to have a success consciousness. What does this mean?

Well, first of all it means that you are in a positive state of mind, in which success is expected, and indeed, where you are so confident of achieving success that in fact it is a “given” for you.

You see, the point about this is that the old expression “success breeds success” is absolutely true in every way.

We talk about manifestation and conscious creation using the Law of Attraction as though these were somehow mysterious and magical qualities that occur without our conscious will being involved.

Far from it!

It’s a misnomer to think the law of attraction will get you what you want regardless of how you think and feel in every day life. Indeed, experts on manifestation will tell you that many of the reasons manifestation fail are about the fact that people are trying to achieve something which is fundamentally in opposition to their basic attitudes, values and belief system (including their beliefs about themselves).

To start with, if you don’t believe that you can be successful, you have absolutely no chance of being success, or manifesting in any form whatsoever.

Regrettably a lot of people who fall into this dynamic will then suggest that the problem lies with the law of attraction and creation, rather than their own inability to believe that they are going to be successful.

One of the most fundamental tenets of human psychology is that we have is something called a shadow – a part of our minds that we hide, repress, and deny, a part of our minds which holds every truth that we know about ourselves but find an acceptable to live with in our conscious reality.

As far as success is concerned, the relevance of this is the fact that success is hard-won in our society; we are mostly brought up with the idea that success is for other people, and somehow we as individuals are taught (or conditioned, more likely) to believe in mediocrity and lack of success as our reality.

Be that as it may, I’m sure you understand that simply stating positive affirmations about your level of success, or filling your mind and consciousness about success, is not sufficient to address the subconscious beliefs you have about yourself if they are in conflict with this – and particularly if they “say” that you are unsuccessful.

The truth of the matter is that the quality of your life, what you see around you right now, is probably a very good guide to what you believe about yourself and your ability to be successful.

If you haven’t got any success in your life whatsoever, or if you’re aspiring to a level of success that goes far beyond what you’ve achieved at the moment, then it’s extremely likely that you’re holding very negative beliefs about yourself – and you will need to change these before you can start trying to manifest success in the world at large.

It’s common for popular blog posts to go something like this:

  • Focusing your mind on success, and filling your consciousness, your awareness, with the feeling of success, make things start happening.
  • When the certainty of success is saturated into your consciousness, into your mind, you get a success powerful tool.
  • Do you want a new job? See yourself at your new job, and create feelings of certainty that you already have it.
    Do you want to find love? Visualize yourself being loved and awaken feelings of love.
    Do you want to go on a vacation? Visualize yourself already enjoying your vacation.
    Do you want to get a promotion at your job or earn more money? Visualize this as a fact and feel it to be true.
    Do you want a new car, or a new house? See yourself driving the car or living in the new house and loving it.

But I think you would be very naive if you believe that this in itself is sufficient to actually manifest success in your life. These are soundbites, morsels of information written for the “get rich quick” and the “something for nothing” brigades – they don’t represent any reality that I understand to be a part of the manifestation process.

If you want to manifest success in your life you have to work harder than this particular blog post might suggest.

I think what is true about success consciousness is that you can shift your consciousness and belief about yourself by having series of successes, starting with small successes, gradually moving on to larger and larger ones – this is a process which actually changes your beliefs about yourself because you have the evidence of your success in front of you.

There are many other approaches to changing what you believe to be true about yourself and your success consciousness, including the use of autosuggestion, self hypnosis, and subconscious programming.

Simply sitting down and visualizing what it would be like to be successful, even if you feel intense joy and emotion and happiness about that prospect is not going to bring you success or manifest success in your life on its own.

Not, that is, unless you absolutely 100% believe that success is within your grasp, and that you can be successful – and note that for this to manifest it’s not just a matter of believing it at the conscious level, but it’s a matter of believing it at the subconscious level as well.

Now, if I was approaching the problem of converting someone’s beliefs about themselves from the fact that they were fundamentally unsuccessful to the fact that they were could be (and indeed were going to be) fundamentally successful, the place I would start would be by working out what their beliefs about themselves actually were at the moment.

Then I would move on to a process of actually extracting those beliefs and addressing them in a rational cognitive way, before applying some powerful subconscious tools and techniques that would change the beliefs about themselves in a positive direction.

Recently however in the context of manifestation, I came across an important and powerful approach called the Lefkoe approach written by man called Marty Lefkoe who has developed a process which he claims can change any negative beliefs about yourself within minutes… And of course, as you can understand if that’s true, then it’s incredibly important that you (as a potential manifester), as a potential cocreator of your life, should seek out and use the techniques which he has on offer.

I don’t know whether the Lefkoe approach to changing beliefs that you hold about yourself actually works or not because I haven’t tried it, but I do know that Steve Pavlina thinks very highly of it and I have a great deal of respect for that man, since he has built a blog (on success) which is phenomenally successful by every single criteria that you can imagine.

Indeed, if Steve were a man who set out to teach a course on manifestation, it would be the one I recommended unreservedly, because I think he knows as much about it as any human being on this planet.

Yes, that’s praise indeed, but bear in mind that he’s simply done everything I’ve described in this post – started to change beliefs about himself, worked on his potential over a long period of time, stayed firmly committed to development and change, and now he has manifested the rewards. That’s how the Law of attraction really works in people’s lives!

 


Use Your Emotions To Manifest Successfully

Make no mistake about it, one of the most important aspects of manifestation is using your emotions to drive the process.

Lack of emotional energy is the fundamental mistake that most people make when the trying to manifest anything – at least in the early stages of their career using the Law of attraction.

Now you may think that emotion is one of the least important aspects of anything to do with universal energy, because intention is everything.

And I agree with you that the intention is indeed very important, but you have to see it in this way: what is it that makes the universe manifest things differently to the way that would otherwise have occurred had you not intervened by using the Law of creation or trying to co-create your reality using the universal laws of attraction?

The answer to that question is that it’s energy – more specifically, it’s your energy, and the only place which you can generate that level of energy around manifestation is from your emotions.

Now people don’t understand this, because there are many teachings about the Law of attraction which seem to encourage people to believe that all they have to do is sit down to meditate five or 10 minutes a day, often twice a day, and they will manifest whatever it is that they fix their attention on.

The truth is that this is a missed understanding of how the universe works. My own interpretation of what I understand about manifestation is as follows: that every single thing that could possibly happen on our planet in our physical reality, is potentially waiting to be manifested in some if the real or energetic or potential form.

Perhaps that is the same as the cosmic consciousness that was talked about by Carl Jung in his works on psychotherapy and psychology in the early part of the 20th century. This would make a lot of sense, because it is out of this cosmic consciousness, this energetic miasma, that our physical reality emerges.

Success and achievement come easily with manifestation

Success comes easily with manifestation

Anyway, going back to the main thrust of the argument: assuming that everything is potentially available for manifesting in physical reality, then something MUST impact the universal dynamic so that it manifests in the form which you are expecting to create using the Law of Attraction.

Since you are impacting an energetic state of being with your intention, the only thing that could possibly impact it in a way that would alter the physical manifestation emerging from the energetic state of being is your own emotional energy.

I say emotional energy because it’s hard to imagine any other form of energy being able to attract physical reality out of the cosmic void. (Not, in fact that it is an energetic void, because in fact is we know it’s actually an energetic state from which physical reality emerges. This is backed up by the quantum physics observation that all energy and matter are exactly the same at the quantum level.)

Now you may know a lot of people who have a great deal of emotional energy, and you may pay you know people who have very little emotional energy, and the latter perhaps forming the group who I would describe as appearing to have a ligature around their neck, as far as their emotions are concerned!

But the truth of the matter is this: that if you want to manifest anything successful in this world you are going to have to learn how to direct emotional energy – and intense emotional energy at that – into the universal energy field so that your desires and intentions can manifest successfully.

One of the interesting things about manifestation is that you generally hear people talking about positive emotions such as joy and happiness, gratitude and thankfulness and excitement as being the powerful forces that can manifest reality in our world.

Granted, it’s absolutely true that they can do that, but I think is also important to acknowledge that negative emotions such as anger fear and jealousy – with the possible exception of fear, for reasons I’ll mention in a moment – can also manifest reality equally successfully.

It seems to me that there is a culture around the law of attraction – probably promoted by the particular emotional tone of The Secret, which was emphatically positive and sweet – which suggests that negative emotions have no role to play in such an esoteric or metaphysical process.

This is a fundamental misunderstanding of the way the universe operates. Essentially the universe is neutral, and it responds primarily to the most intense emotional stimulus that it receives. This is why if somebody is trying to manifest something that could impact you, and you are trying to manifest something that could impact them, the outcome is likely to be determined by whoever has most emotional energy to drive the process.

What I’m saying here is that the universe doesn’t operate with fear or favor!

Knowing what you want and then directing an intense level emotional energy is a guaranteed way to manifest whatever it is that you’re trying to obtain* – and this works just as well with intense negative emotions as positive ones.

You see, the concept of negative emotions and positive emotions is a human construct, which means nothing to the dispassionate neutral way in which the universe manifest anything. In the space-time continuum there is no concept of good or evil, can a concept of good or bad, no concept of positive or negative there is just seamless transition between formless energy and formed matter in the real world.

Fear Does Not Manifest Reality

Now, I mention above that fear is probably not one emotion which can drive manifestation; the reason for this is that fear is an emotion which focuses on black or disadvantage or absence of positive energy. In other words while anger can focus on lack it’s a driving force towards change, it’s a driving force towards getting what you currently lack. Fear, by contrast, is an emotion which depends for its existence on the absence of something, and the fear of the consequences of that absence.

I’ve seen people recommend that anger is not used as a driving force for manifestation because the consequences for the individual using it can be to make them enter into a state of more or less continuous anger.

I strongly dispute that, and I think it’s a misunderstanding of how emotions work to suggest that might actually be the case – emotions are simply energy, and the purpose of examining up anger during manifestation is to project outwards into the universe to ensure that there is some distinct difference between your emotional level on the physical plane and your emotional level on the cosmic consciousness level.

*A final note for this section – I mentioned above that combining clear intention and positive emotional energy are absolutely guaranteed to produce manifestation of whatever it is you’re trying to create using the Law of attraction. In reality things are not quite so simple: there are no guarantees about manifestation for all kinds of reasons, but chief among them is the fact that if your belief system does not accommodate absolute and complete confidence and expectation in your ability to obtain what it is you’re trying to manifest with your intention, you will not succeed.


Law Of Attraction

Through the years, several writers have stated very particularly that the best “presents” we’ve been provided with are our imaginations. I understand what they are suggesting here. By utilizing our imagination and creativity we are able to access the deepest, most profound energy we can ever touch – and this is our link with the world beyond our conscious minds.

Certainly, it is correct that the creativity may be the section of you which could produce the life you would REALLY like. Consider this section of you as the sovereign that you experience running your life; however, it is not only the sovereign on an earthly plane. In a certain way your “sovereign” includes a transpersonal link with the planet beyond the actual reality around you.

Law of attraction and manifestation

What is the transpersonal? How does it affect manifestation?

By utilizing your creativity you can discover and know the truth of this assertion. The easiest evidence of this really is here and now around you right now because almost anything you observe, notice, or sense is the product of somebody’s creativity and began like a thought in somebody’s brain.

You may react by stating, “Well yes, obviously it did, after which people constructed or created it.” But that does not diminish the truth of my declaration that anything and everything starts with some creativity.

I’d like to be the first person to go beyond this concept, and think about how the fundamentals of the development of bodily sensation may take devotees to the spiritual world beyond consciousness. Lots of people attempt to clarify the way the Divine (I shall call it the Universal Law Of Attraction – about which you can read more here) may cause reality to change within our realm, on this material plane, our home planet, and they also resort to answers predicated on ideas of quantum physics. Therefore I would like to ask you, what do you think you have to comprehend about quantum science before you can simply accept that our lives are just a symptom of how the Law Of Attraction manifests within our lives?

Well, I can answer for you: nothing. All you require may be the work of religion to consider you beyond where you require a reason for what goes on on the planet around you.

Utilizing Your Creativity

If you are prepared to desire change and work for it, if you are prepared to spend some time working to get to where you might be and who you might become, and reside for a time in the nature of a new perspective, the world may cooperate with you and produce outcomes you cannot possibly imagine at this juncture!

Actually you will be amazed from the number of coincidences, the twists and conversions, the sudden appearance of people, locations and things that come unexpectedly into your life and create a new and better you as you begin to express the truth of your essential self.

Yet to avoid putting aside this remarkable degree of awareness, or become engrossed in it, is definitely an awe inspiring experience. And undoubtedly it takes you to specific knowledge that you are not presently aware of.

Additionally, you need to do certain things differently. Right now you are possibly making use of your creativity in ways that might be useful to you: as symptoms of one’s deeper drivers and motivations, possibly. Or maybe seeing that you have been in a way insufficiently developed to benefit from the elegant generosity and magnificence of the world or its capability to provide you with what you would like in life.

Whenever you acknowledge the fact that you’re only a small part of a powerful God, obviously your uncertainties and worries fall away. However you may be investing your own time in paying attention to things you do not wish to occur to you. The moment you turn your detailed focus on the way in which you think about yourself and talk about life, especially towards the degree of thought which exists in the fringe of your awareness, you are likely to discover that you utilize words like, “I do not deserve to become wealthy”, “there’s not enough to go round”, “what I am doing is not worth very much” or “I am merely worthless and that is how it’s always been”.

It is odd that the individual brain appears to move towards the damaging and negative rather than the good. But we don’t have to contemplate why that mystery exists: we need to consider how to change our thinking from damaging and unhelpful to positive and beneficial. From despair to hope. From mean-spiritedness to appreciation. From agony to pleasure. From bad expectation to optimism around all things.

Obviously having notice how adversely your mind is working right now, you will wish to challenge the status quo (surely?) Feeling bad about symptoms and not following the law of attraction won’t change how you expeereince life….Indeed, the alternative holds true.

But merely getting conscious about the pessimism inside your psychology isn’t enough to alter it. You really have to discover a way of manifesting your creativity as well as bringing forth expectancy around the good objectives and results and thoughts for which you can strive. A quick and easy method to do that would be to substitute every bad thought with a good one the moment you feel conscious of it.

Unfortunately, that’s not easy. If it were, then everyone would be a lot happier than they actually are!

So one recommendation for you is to begin with a definite and particular intention that you may embrace completely. In other words, find out what you would like and follow your wishes as intently as you can. Move towards whatever is within easy reach. Then aim for a bit more.

Our next recommendation is the fact that there is a creative place in your subconscious which you don’t know about…. and it can help you: if you think negatively, just permit yourself “to doubt your doubts”. Quite simply, permit yourself to ultimately take the chance of your doubts being incorrect. Permit positive expectancy and aspirations to erode doubts and negativity.

If you should be reacting adversely towards the recommendation that positive thinking might help you live a far more bounteous and positive existence, and assist you to attain your targets and goals, then you need to change your whole orientation from pessimism to positivity.

One of the ways you can do this really is by creating a training of appreciation. Possibly faster than every other psychological system, practicing appreciation may change your mindset from pessimism to positivity in mere weeks….

And everybody has a lot of things that they can truly be thankful for: it is merely a matter of how you see the world  (especially if you choose not to see the positive things available to you at this time). The fact you are living today, in our abundant world, or the flavor of a bit of fruit, or the fact that you have clothes to wear, or perhaps you have a buddy, or clean water to drink. All of these are things for which you can be grateful. And appreciation for little things – such as a short chat to a passerby – as well as large things – such as being happy or rich – allow you to make better use of the Law of Attraction.

For the manner in which you react to our recommendation of implementing a practice of gratitude is likely to be a very good sign of the psychological tone of your life. The option is yours.
