Intention + Attention = Manifestation. ~ Sara Camiscioni

Manifesting. What is it really?

Is it believing in something and then willing it to come true? Is it some wishy-washy talk about mystical powers or something unbelievable or something too abstract to be understood?

Are we only getting a small amount of success in our business? Are we waiting for things to come our way? Do we have life, career, relationship goals?

Let me break it down.

Manifesting is an awesome way to really take our life into our hands. Even if we are super-go-getting people, if we can open our minds a little, we acquire the experience of what we want to feel—being, living and believing in that experience, and then allowing that experience to come into form.

I’ve found myself on an impromptu trip to Las Vegas, thank you manifesting 101. In addition, many great things have recently come into my life.

Manifesting is creative using our presence and higher power energy, and using that energy to co-create. The energy of believing is one of the keys to manifesting. We are co-creating with the uni-verse. There are no such things as coincidences. We play an active, and yet passive role in helping things come into your life.

“Miracles occur naturally, and when they are not occurring, something has gone wrong.”  ~ A Course in Miracles

The effortless action—that we were thinking about something, and then it just shows up; that is how life is supposed to be. Our negative thoughts, our anxieties, our future projecting; we get in the way of the flow of our own lives. All our projecting of negative energy affects our energy and prevents those things from coming our way.

Here are the keys to manifesting.

1. Clarity. First step is to get very, very clear. Be clear on what you desire, (i.e., I want/am a successful yoga student and becoming a successful yoga teacher, I desire to get ___ job promotion, etc) otherwise we can call in some funky and super confusing stuff. We have to have clarity. We get clear in what we want, then release the blocks and disbelief which are holding us back.

2. Be clear of Limiting Beliefs. Become clear as to what we don’t believe, and the limiting beliefs which may be blocking us from believing what we want. By becoming clear in step 1, it allows us to see the limiting beliefs holding us back from obtaining our desires. (i.e., I am not a good writer, I will never be a published author, I will never be a successful yoga teacher, I will never experience a loving partnership, etc.) Recognizing the self-limiting beliefs and then cleaning them up. (I am a great writer. I am a successful yoga student learning how to be a successful yoga teacher, I am a loving partner and desire a loving partnership with these specific qualities.) I would start telling myself and believing these things way before it was ‘real’ in the sense of it taking actual form in my physical life.

**Recognize it is a story we are telling ourselves** Those limiting beliefs are holding us back. When we recognize that the internal story we have told ourselves isn’t true, we can forgive ourselves and release the false beliefs, which sometimes may be the simple step in allowing ourselves to open up for the manifestation to take form in our lives.

3. Be in the presence, the energy, in the knowing that you are ready to receive your manifestation. We have healed limiting beliefs, we are active, engaged and aware. Getting into the know. Know the universe has your back.

When we are in the zone, the know, we have released the disbelief and we start to acquire what it feels like to be in that manifestation. I felt like a successful yoga student and teacher (even when I wasn’t there yet). I felt and believed I was a successful and great writer (even before I was close to having anything publishable).

What can we do on a daily basis if we lack money, resources,etc.?

We can not let your outside world dictate our internal world. If we have low income and can not afford to do the teacher training right now (real life situations/scenarios) we can not let the outside world dictate what is going on internally. We are not allowing ourselves to co-create. It will be a manifestation mishap, (“I’m having this experience, I want to be a successful yoga teacher/student, I want to be a published author”). Then we allow outside shit to affect our thoughts (“I’m never going to be published, I don’t have that money and can’t do it. I don’t have enough”).

Our internal condition will support the external. Us, in us, have to support ourselves. We have to believe in our abundance and self-worth in order to really allow that manifestation to come into our lives.

Hold the energy and let the outside world meet the energy inside us.

4. Patience! Stay in the know.

We can be in the knowing. We can be trying something and thinking “it isn’t coming.”

The most important step is patience

“Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait and wait without anxiety.” ~ Gabrielle Bernstein

Presence of certainty, (“That man is on the way. I am abundant and loving and know I am love.”) If we can allow, be patient and be in the know. When we are not patient, we control, manipulate and block the natural energy from flowing toward us , which is the energy we use to attract those things into our life. So if we are putting out some funky energy, we get funk back.

Manifesting is possible. I learned a tom about this from Gabrielle Bernstein, who uses A Course in Miracles as her spiritual text and her guide in manifesting.

Hey, lets go co-create our lives.
