The following are guidelines for becoming an active and conscious manifester in your life. We human beings are constantly manifesting. The power to manifest is already a part of you. It is your Being. We manifest through our body, mind and soul. Our thoughts, words, and actions are our tools. We manifest in our lives that upon which we focus. Most people manifest passively and unconsciously; they are victims of how their unconscious thoughts and words manifest outcomes in their lives.
It is very important for us, who want to be conscious manifesters, to become exquisitely aware of what we focus on, consciously and unconsciously, and how to directly engage our thoughts, words and actions so that we are more productively working towards creating our heart’s desires. These simple steps will help you become more conscious and more directly involved in manifesting your goals and dreams. If you are a helping professional like a therapist, coach or hypnotherapist, you may facilitate your clients towards manifesting their life goals using this process, as well as use it for yourself.
1. Choosing a Goal to Manifest.
Make sure that your goal is your own; that is one that is congruent to your own desires and to who you are as a person. It will not work, for instance, to try to manifest your parent’s goals for you to be a politician when you really want to be a dancer. You and only you can decide if this goal is truly important and of value.
2. The Importance of Manifesting with Intention.
Make sure that your goal is moving towards what you want, not what you don’t want. Get specific about the details or qualities of what you want. Brainstorm and make a list of these details.
3. Reinforcing with Affirmations.
Write an affirmation that includes the specifics of your goal. Be positive. Use present tense. Relate it to yourself as coming to you at just the right time and for the highest good of all. Give the statement some “juice” or emotion. Example “I love to public speak to and inspire 100’s of people.”
4. Doing a “Body Check”.
Say your affirmation aloud and feel it in your body. Make sure that it feels right and important to you, especially in your heart chakra. If it doesn’t feel right, keep working on the specifics until it does feel right.
At this stage you may become aware of limiting beliefs, unconscious attitudes or negative self talk that need clearing. Muscle testing can be used to check for psychological reversal. Inner work with EFT or Hypnotherapy may be needed to clear the unconscious blocks.
5. Engaging the Unconscious.
Using hypnosis and creative visualization skills, close your eyes and say the affirmation. Allow yourself to experience being your future self, the person who has already manifested the goal. Awaken all of your inner senses and experience what you feel, see, hear, sense, think and if appropriate taste and smell. Associate in the experience as fully as possible. The unconscious is now engaging in the manifesting process! Use hypnotic skill rehearsal techniques to be in the moment the person who has already manifested his or her goal.
6. Anchor your Goal.
Choose a word, phrase, an image or a feeling that come to you when in trance that will be your anchor to reinforce the positive experience of stepping into your future self.
7. Give it substance.
Draw a picture, make a sandtray, take a photograph, find a symbol or make a collage of what you want. Keep it in view of your daily activities. What color or colors are the essence of your goal? When thinking of your goal you can use your anchors and put a big ball of energy over your head that is the color of your goal. Allow the color and feelings of energy to move into your aura and body to give it space to manifest through you and in your life.
8. Let it go.
Now release this color or feeling through your solar plexus. Surrender it to the Universe. Letting it go is very important to the manifesting process. As a part of the energy mechanics of life, the vibration of your thought and words have been released and broadcast into the universe so that they can attract to you opportunities and what you need. Be where you are right now. Know that what is at this moment is perfect and right.
9. Know it as Reality.
There is no time in spirit. It does, however take time for goals to manifest in physical plane reality. Know that your goal will manifest in the time and way it is best for you. The Law of Cause and Effect is in action. “Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find, Knock and it shall be opened unto you.” Manifesting is a process that takes time. You can support it by acting as if you already have what you want. Validate even the smallest steps.
10. Take Action.
Manifesting is a process. Give your manifesting process attention. Every day do something towards making your goal a reality. The universe will give you signs along the way that will lead you on the path of manifesting. Stay alert to the opportunities that show up. Use your intuition and explore those opportunities that get your attention. Follow up on the cosmic “leads” that appear. Engage in your life as a part of the process. Stay open and receptive to opportunities coming in surprising ways. Work with your affirmation daily. Write it out and place it in a conspicuous place so you will see it as you go about your daily routines. Stop any negative language or limiting thoughts. Use EFT and hypnotherapy to delete any negative programs that show up.
11. Give thanks.
Hold gratitude in your heart for the abundance of the universe and the knowing that you are manifesting opportunities and exactly what you need for your goal to manifest. Celebrate and enjoy the process.
12. Use your other resources.
Once you get started, you can see “obstacles” as opportunities to self-navigate and get back on track. Use the manifesting process as an opportunity to flush out any blocks or unconscious beliefs. Use tools for transformation like hypnosis or EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to clear the blocks. The process of conscious manifesting will hone your soul and spirit and will keep your ego in check! Conscious manifesting is one of the tools of a spiritual master. You are a spiritual master in training!
