Manifesting – A Mindful Practice
A Mindful Practice
Manifesting, what does this mean?
According to Merriam-Webster it is defined as “readily perceived by the senses and especially by the sense of sight”
Honestly speaking when I hear the word manifest I think of a genie, you know the kind that live in old lamps, a mental image of items materializing in front of me seems to be my direct interpretation. Which of course is not exactly as we see described above
When I think about it a little deeper I realized that I had been confusing manifesting with wishing for magic. Now some people might have already had a clear definition of this word but something tells me I am not the only person to fall victim of this misinterpretation.
So what does it really mean to manifest your true intentions?
Well it is clear that it does not mean making the things you want in your life just magically appear.
My interpretation of this expression is that, to manifest your true intentions means fine tuning your mind to be hypersensitive to people, places and things that resonate harmoniously with the great essence that dwells within you.
What? Yeah I know hold on, Let me adjust my vernacular.
Manifesting your true intentions is like calibrating your mind and body so that they can notice all the things around you that make you feel at peace thus allowing you to act upon things that uplift your spirit.
I think that makes more sense…….I hope.
Why do people keep talking about it?
First off it just sounds so damn catchy right?
People are prone to repeat things that have a certain ring to them. Then there is the whole wishing for magic things that could be causing some of this as well.
Other than bogus “spiritual” leaders or new age philosophers having something new to sell you in their next book what is the importance of this practice?
It seems clear to me that becoming attuned to the things that help elevate your spirit is like magnetizing your life to naturally attract things that help you grow with appreciation.
When we look at the world at large we can say there is a growing percentage of people who are becoming more disconnected from their higher power, inner being or self. If I were to assert my observation on this situation then I would say it seems that quite a few people are in careers, fields of study, relationships, and locations that do not agree with what they truly want for their life.
Perhaps the collective consciousness is pushing towards practices that will put us back in touch with our true self and how to change the course of this ill fated journey known as the human experience.
Sounds like a bunch of psychobabble
Fair enough, but if you have gotten this far into the blog entry then it is safe to say you would like to have a little bit more of the things that make your soul feel at ease in your life.
I consider it equivalent to exercise or reading, except you don’t need anything other than a little bit of time and the desire to live a life that brings out your true potential. Personally I don’t see anything negative in wanting to consciously improve your life so that it reflects your inner most desires.
How does one manifest?
There are quite a few people out there that will sell you workshops or one on one training in this practice. By all means if you are interest in paying someone else to help you remember how to tap into your innate prosperity then that is your decision. Of course you might as well be purchasing your own flatulence in a jar because manifesting is something you do naturally.
The truth of the matter is we are all expert manifesters sometimes so good we end up getting buried under negativity and mindless garbage.
Policing Your Thoughts
Don’t worry this can easily be changed it simply requires you practice a habit I like to call “policing your thoughts” this doesn’t mean imposing your negative emotions from being picked on in high school on your thoughts. What it means is actively watching your thoughts and feelings to make sure that you are not focusing on the negative aspects of your life or projecting your fears into your foreseeable future.
Along with “policing your thoughts” you must learn to get in touch with things that resonate with your true essence. This is actually a lot easier than you would think because your body and mind are giving you cues as to what reflects your true intent. The real problem is you don’t know that you are missing these cues because they have been inadequately labeled your personal interests on average.
So steal a couple minutes from your day ask yourself questions such as “What do I want from life? How do i feel about my current situation? What are things I enjoy most about my existence?” Keep an eye out for negative thought processes such as doubt or unfounded skepticism. When you find yourself in that moment of extreme bliss stop for a second try to observe what you are doing so you can try to recreate it or foster a life that cultivates that feeling.
Thanks for tuning in and as always you are worth MORE THAN GOLD
