“I’m doing everything you teach—why can’t I manifest what I want?”
I understand this frustration!
Manifesting what you want doesn’t need to take a lot of effort.
In fact, to really manifest your desires, the less effort, the better.
When you become aware of the powerful role you play as a creator in your own life, you can then work with the universal laws of creation to manifest the life and experiences you want to have.
The process of creation is a simple five-step process. Understanding this process, and practicing it to gain mastery, allows us to become master creators.
Learn how to create the life you desire by practicing these 5 simple steps.
Here are 5 simple steps to manifesting what you want with less effort:
Step 1: KNOW what you want & DECLARE your desire.
Do you really know what it is you want? (Health? Joy? Friendship? More money? New career? Great relationship?)
Get clear about your desire and even write it down on paper.
Get as specific as possible. If you only have a vague concept of what you want, it’s hard to manifest something specific. Undefined desires don’t go very far.
Step 2: ASK for what you want.
Ask the Universe.
Ask the heavenly spiritual powers greater than you to assist you in creating it.
Step 3: BELIEVE you can have it.
Have faith, free from any doubt, that what you desire and have asked for is good.
Trust that what you have asked for is going to be manifest to you when it is timely and appropriate.
Step 4: LET GO and allow.
This is the part where you get out of your own way.
Let go of “doing” to make it happen and allow the Spirit to be in charge of bringing your desire to you.
Trust that you will be guided when and if to take any inspired action to follow through.
Step 5: Express GRATITUDE.
This step immediately follows Step 4—yes, even before your desire is manifested to you in the physical realm.
That’s because gratitude is both the completion and the beginning of the creation process. Gratitude energy initiates more things manifesting in your life for which you feel gratitude.
And because you have the faith that your desire will be fulfilled in some way, you can express gratitude, knowing that your desire is already created spiritually and that you’re grateful for it showing up.
When you’re still not manifesting what you want
I teach the following technique to help people become clearer on why their desires are not showing up.
First, take your desire. Let’s use the simple example of wanting a new car. Let’s say you really want a car that is reliable, fun to drive, good-looking, and reasonably priced. Rate your desire for a new car on a scale from 0 – 10, 10 being the strongest, 0 being the weakest.
For most people, what they really want is a 10. So, in this case, your desire for a new car is a 10.
Second, examine your belief. Do you believe that you deserve a new car? That you can have what you have asked for? That it will show up easily and effortlessly? That it will be as good or even better than what you have asked for?
Now rate your belief using the same 0 – 10 scale.
Is your belief that you can have and receive what you want as strong as your desire? In the case of wanting a new car, let’s pretend that your desire is a 10, yet your belief that you can and will have one is a 3.
This energy setup will keep you from attracting what you want! When there is a discrepancy between the energy of your desire and the energy of your belief, you cannot attract into your life what you want.
When your desire is a 10 and your belief is a 10, you come into vibrational harmony with what you want and it shows up for you.
Finally, if you are still not getting what you want, consider the possibility that your timing is off. It is just not the right time, or it is not in your highest and greatest good to receive it.
Want to become a master at manifesting?
As you continue to play with these steps, make sure you are having fun. If you get serious and stressed with the steps, you will create all kinds of interference. Keep it light and free.
