You’ve watched The Secret; conjured a feather, found a penny, and manifested rock star parking.
You're confident you’ve got a hang of the law of attraction: focus on what you want, believe that you can have it, and let it in. EASY!
(Isn't it wonderful when everything falls into place like that? What a great feeling!)
You are now ready for the big league, and you turn your attention to realising your dream job, or getting a new mate, or fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning your own business.
Then the magic disappears; “POOF!” Just like that, your ability to part the Red Sea deserts you when you need it most. You try this visualisation technique. Chant that mantra. Buy a different meditation – and still, nothing happens!
Yet, you remain hopeful and persist. Because there is much joy and empowerment in knowing that you are responsible for creating your own life. It means you have the power to change things and experience miracles.
Here are three tips to help you out of the funk, so you can manifest a miracle.
1. Watch your language:
Your thoughts and words are truly your prophecy; with each word you speak, you either breathe life into your goal or deny its fulfilment.
You just can’t ask for a job you love then go around complaining about your current one. Each time you passionately contribute to a conversation about how difficult it is to succeed in business you are only delaying your progress.
Speak words that reflect those spoken by someone who is successful; words that exemplify what you want to achieve and experience in your life.
If you want business success, ask yourself, “What would someone who has a thriving business with lots of clients be thinking? What would they be saying?” Then think it. And speak it.
As you repeat positive success affirming words, they will replace negative thoughts and patterns in the subconscious that have blocked your success, and align your energy and beliefs with success.
Do this with all your desired good.
2. Release the how:
We tend to have preconceived ideas about how our desired outcomes should manifest. We attach a particular way, time or sequence to the unfolding of our dream. But what you’ve asked for can show up in different ways than you’d imagined. You don’t have to know the ‘how’ – but you have to be willing to put your trust into something other than your own limited mind and resources.
Your job is to plant the seed of your desired outcome very firmly in your mind, and nurture it with positive thought and expectation. Then turn it over to the creative forces of the Universe to orchestrate its perfect completion. You can then relax and let go, knowing your manifestation is on its way.
A fun game is to think of different ways your desire could unfold. Get creative and outrageous – this will help you surrender the ‘how’ to the Universe. When you do this, it will take form in the most unexpected, delightful and miraculous way.
3. Give thanks in advance:
If you want your desires to come quickly, start expressing gratitude for them now as if they were already here. Being grateful in advance is the ultimate show of trust. It is what creates magic, and moves ‘wants’ and ‘wishes’ into the realm of manifest reality.
Even before you receive your dream job, be grateful now that someone, somewhere is looking for a person just like you.
Before you thrive in your new business, give thanks for the appreciative clients who are on their way.
Be grateful for the loving and loyal friends, well before they meet you and appreciate your charm and wit.
Give gratitude in advance and watch as miracles happen around you.
