It is my wish that everyone will join me for the Meditation add-on which is LIVE every Thursday at 9pm EST. Through a live, guided meditation, each week I will teach you techniques to quiet your mind and fully engage in the present moment. It is in this space that the intentions are set for manifestation. The practice of meditation will have lasting effects throughout your life in ways that nothing else can, and will truly build a foundation for everything you do going forward. Please join me for a year of mediation for manifestation.
TRICK YOUR MIND: Here’s the best tip all… Use things like subliminal money meditations that instill new thoughts – and energy – into your subconscious mind directly, without being “discredited” by your conscious, or critical, mind.
Lately I’ve been teaching my daughter Emily (age 10) how to manifest coins. I do this by turning it into a game. When we’re out walking together, I challenge her to see if she can find more coins than I can.
This doesn’t mean you sit home and do nothing. The difference is that you await inspired action. Inspired action is that sudden feeling you should go the coffee shop even if you are not thirsty, or you should get gas on the other side of the street.
As an example, I had a strong belief that if I became really rich I would become less spiritual. A single round of tapping on that negative belief statement at an EFT seminar six years ago enabled me to more than double my income in the following year! From that moment on, I began to understand the power this process could unleash if we managed to identify the right beliefs to tap on.
Henry David Thoreau said: “[You] will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Thoreau suggests that the universe will begin to conspire with you to fulfill your wishes. This is the law of co-creation.
Once you’ve made your decision, a big part of understanding how to manifest love with a specific person lies in getting a clear sense of what it is about this person that makes you believe that looking for love with them will truly make you happy. As such, part of making a manifestation commitment involves beginning to analyze yourself in a new, deeper way.
You might not find love quite where and when you expected it. So you must keep an open mind and be alert to signs from the universe. These might come in the form of coincidences, repeated imagery, or chance meetings.
On the other hand, self-love is attractive and attracts potential mates. Make a list of ten characteristics you love about yourself and put this list where you can see it every day. It doesn’t really matter what is on the list as long as it easily generates good feelings that you have toward yourself.
Focus on understanding your part in this overall process, rather than feeling guilty or ashamed. Recognizing how your fears have manifested in your life does not mean that the bad things in your life are your fault. It simply means that the Law of Attraction has responded to the signal you sent out. Just acknowledge that the system works and your new awareness will guide you. No need to shame yourself or even feel responsible.
It is really easy to focus on all that is wrong with our lives, especially when it comes to our money issues. Our negative feelings are strong, and have a lot of pull behind them..we can get sucked in deep the second we start feeling them. But, you have to realize you have a choice regarding where you put your focus. You get to decide how you feel about your life. You get to decide whether you will keep telling yourself the same story or be willing to craft a new one.
