Manifesting What You Desire....learning to listen
Going into a New Year it is common place to set goals and make resolutions. Many people look forward to the challenges that meeting these goals can bring while others know they have changes to make but dread the challenge. So why do so many give up or even fail at succeeding in manifesting what they desire?
Perhaps it is in setting the goal itself. Follow it all the way back to the beginning....your thoughts. What is your internal dialogue saying about you, your ability to succeed or even your worthiness to reach your goal? We are a complicated lot, we humans. As hard as science has tried to clump us all together into one set of rules for our species, and perhaps this can be done to a certain level in regard to our physical bodies, it doesn’t account for the complexity of our consciousness. What is it that makes each of us different? What is it that drives us and gives us the empowerment to achieveand to make us feel as though we have made it?
In his talk, Internal Dialogue and the Manifestation of Desire, Deepak Chopra says that our true self power comes from within while outer power depends on external power sources such as job title, material objects and always has a middle and an end. True self power has a spiritual foundation and is permanent because it is one with Spirit and Spirit lasts forever. The effect that this power has can be noticed instantaneously. People who are allowing this true power to guide them emit this powerful energy to others even before they speak. They are the ones you feel comfortable to be around, you want to listen to what they say, and you feel you are in a place of non judgment.
A strong presence can be felt that is both good or bad. For example, someone who is working only from the outer power can be very aggressive and have a strong presence when they enter a room or speak but it is all about “them” and their need to have a title, position and material objects and control. When these things are taken away from them, they no longer have the power. The opposite is true when we livefrom true self power. The inner dialogue you have with yourself is guided by Spiritnot by status. You no longer are concerned with what is known as object referrals – situations, status symbol, bank account, relationship, but rather listens to the self referral which comes from Spirit.
There are three key principals that are found in true self referral.
Independent of Criticism – no longer holds onto the fear of what others think realizing their judgment is more a reflection of them and not us. When we walk in our own truth we acknowledge that we are doing the best we can at this moment in time.
Neither beneath or superior to anyone – when we realize that EVERYONE is Spirit how can we judge?
Total Absence of Fear – facing any fears we have, and trusting we can work from our true self.
To evolve and live from our True Self Power we need to embrace the above principals. Here is an easy but very effective exercise to not only learn the principals but to become them. Once we do that, manifesting what we desire, what is important to our Higher Self and best for the higher good of ourselves and others will become automatic.
Okay, below is your homework. Do the mirror exercise everyday and begin to empower yourself. This is the first step in manifesting what you desire.
Look into the mirror, making eye contact with yourself and not looking at anything else. Now repeat the above principals and see the principals reflected back in your eyes. Then say a mantra to anchor these words such as AH HUM which means I am, also the root of the word Amen. You can use your own favourite mantra but do use a mantra. A few suggestions are Amen, Blessings Be, So Shall It Be etc.
" I am independent of criticism",
"I am neither beneath nor superior to anyone",
"I have no fears".
This exercise will create a very positive anchor for you. Every time you look into the mirror you will see the principals reflected in your eyes and the anchor makes it so. Even if at this moment in time you do not feel you these principals are part of your life, repeat them and soon they will be. Remember, to manifest we need to think what we desire, visualize it in our mind's eye and finally say it out loud.
