So you want to manifest better health or more money and you follow step by step instructions described in some law of attraction source.
You meditate on your health, you visualize cash in your hands, you do affirmations and whatever you think will work to attract your love.
After some time you look around and notice that not much has been changed – same old crap around, just like before.
Sounds oh so familiar?
Then you usually come to either one of three conclusions:
- Drastic one: LOA does not exist and does not work and it’s all scam.
(you move to other modalities to improve your screwy conditions but LOA is now a 4-letter word in your dictionary)
- That Law of Attraction book you been following is giving totally misleading information.
(you decide that given author does not have a clue or credentials and search for another author).
- Most probable case: That Law of Attraction book sounds ok but likely missing some “real secret” key.
(you find source that includes “the real secret”, “the missing key”, or alike in it’s title, and with the new wave of inspiration start practicing again)
Law of Attraction in it’s nature is so simple that most publications, even the ones including “the missing secret” and “the real key” appear to be regurgitating the same old stuff in a slightly different font and color.
So why is it so hard to attract what we want?
Because we do not attract stuff by our desire to get more stuff and we do not attract stuff by doing some proper law of attraction exercises.
But exercises and structured approach fits western and european school of thinking really well. People like certainty and mechanical predictability of their actions:
I am willing to do dedicated exercises 15 minutes per exercise, 3 times a day and in two weeks I expect to see the tangible results or consider the whole thing a failure!
Western mentality also sprinkles “working hard” statements to above.
“Working hard” is so ingrained into the hearts and minds of north american people that when “working hard” fails as usual to deliver any results to speak of people conclude that they just need to “work even harder”. “Hard workers” are usually the ones who manifest the most “hardness” but least prosperity.
So, lets get to the root cause of manifestations, any manifestations.
We attract “stuff” by being in “the manifested state”.
Please note that anything above and below this statement is just a commentary – this statement is the only thing you need to know and do about The Law of Attraction to live happily ever after.
Lets repeat it again in a slight variation:
We attract anything we want by being in the desired manifested state.
Manifested state – is an inner emotional state we would experience having our desire already manifested for us.
Welcome to the ultimate catch 22 of the law of attraction:
We want stuff because once we’ll get it – we will feel happy.
But to get stuff that will make us happy we absolutely have to be into the happy emotional state first.
Try to attract more money visualizing cash while feeling miserable and fearful of piled up bills to pay.
So it does not matter if you do or not do any law of attraction or manifestation exercises – as long as you manage to enter and stay in the desired manifested state as much as possible. Exercises are just a little crutches that helps you to enter the state and get the feel of it.
Don’t buy into illusion that doing will get you where you want to be. It’s the Being that will. You have to BE first and then DO what you feel inspired for.
Doing exercises for 1 hour a day is wonderful but spending the other 23 hours being pissed off at the quality of your current life situation will attract you that which matches your dominant vibration – the state you feel most often.
Being in The Manifested State is the secret sauce of manifestation. The practice is to learn to enter and to stay in the manifested state as much as possible. Not just 1 hour a day at predefined times, but as often as possible.
Your imagination and your thoughts are firewood that will keep the manifested state fire burning. This is your work if you want to change your life situation. This needs to become yournew thinking and feeling habit to overcome old destructive patterns and make material world to reflect the new reality to you.
My personal preference is to practice the manifested state throughout the day – whenever possible. My clients are guided to do that as often as possible and to discover their own personal ways to achieve desired emotional states.
Here is an example of the process I do to heal myself from temporary undesirable physical states – such as headaches, muscle or joint pains or even teeth pains.
Recently I had an uncomfortable headache from undersleeping and overworking on a computer. Headache disappeared within minutes after the manifested state practice.
Yesterday I felt strong teeth pain after eating some overly sweet food. Disappeared within 1 hour of the manifested state practice.
Today I had a strong elbow joints pain caused by previous arm wrestling with my son, his friend and our house guests. Disappeared 4 hours after beginning of intermittent practice of the manifested state.
Here is the example of The Manifested State practice I use, step by step:
- I observe and acknowledge what is that I don’t like:
– headache, muscle pain, etc..
- I define what is that I want to get or to achieve:
– feeling of good energy.
– feeling rested.
– feeling positive.
– feeling happy.
- I set my external physicals to match the desired state:
– I set myself into straight posture.
– I made few conscious breathes.
– I flexed a few muscles to become conscious of my body.
- I work on moving my emotions toward matching the desired state. This is the hardest, yet most important part:
– I imagined how feeling rested “feels” and reignited that emotional state inside of me to some extent.
– I imagined how feeling “good energy” feels – easy – energetic – inspired and reignited that inner feeling.
– I imagined how feeling positive feels – smiley – ready to take off – easy to fix things – and reignited that inner feelings and flexed some muscles to acknowledge my ability to easily move without problem
– I imagined general happiness – no need to rush anywhere – no obligations to fulfill to anyone – joy – peace – reignited these feelings inside and used imagination to to see me moving, smiling, feeling good.
– Imagined what i would do in the desired state – have joyful physical exercise, easily take care of some clutter, do some writing on subjects i feel inspired about.
Once I reignited the bouquet of inner feelings matching my desired state – I worked on maintaining it. This is practice of “throwing logs” into the “positive emotional fire” to keep it going. One feeling “log” to remind of “good energy”, another emotional “log” to maintain feelings of inspiration, yet another log to feel lightness, joy and ease. Few more imagery exercises seeing me in desired action, enjoying my new state.
This process requires consistency and focusing. But it can be done at any time, while driving, while talking, while resting.
And the best part of it is rediscovering your inner power – the ability to ignite positive feelings and emotions within yourself at will.
This skill will eventually make you independent of any outer circumstances, will help you to become a free person and manifest anything you want in your life.
When I try to enter the manifested state from initial physical discomfort – this usually requires some sort of inner energy jolt – sort of kicking myself in the butt to shift to the new energy state.
This step requires will power, effort and strong focusing.
You have to be willing to go through initial discomfort of switching your inner energy state.
Such discomfort is sensually similar to overcoming desire to sleep in the morning and deciding to physically move out of warm and cozy bed.
Even though the manifested state work is mostly just inner emotional work – it could be quite challenging at the beginning.
The reward for that is quick and noticeable improvement!
And the best part – it could work for everything.
The process manifesting more money, finding lovemate or achieving more success in your life is very similar to the process of overcoming headache!
To summarize the steps:
Decide what is that you want, describe the matching state – and start working on igniting your inner emotional feelings, powered by matching thoughts. Start easy and slow.
When you notice that your emotions start shifting toward more positive – you will know that your practice is successful. Keep doing it, make it your daily habit moment to moment.
Remember when your emotions match the desired manifested state regardless of your current physical circumstances – IT IS THE PROOF OF YOUR SUCCESSFUL MANIFESTATION WORK.
When you are in The Manifested State – physical “stuff” is on the way – This is The Law.
PS: I had to finish this article by manifesting 2 empty tables for myself in absolutely packed StarBucks coffee place with no places to sit. Invoking The Manifested State does it’s magic every time 🙂
