Putting your ultimate goal out into the world—even just to acknowledge that you wish it—can itself be a scary proposition if the goal is big enough and crazy enough. We ask ourselves (a la Marianne Williamson and Nelson Mandela), “Who am I to think I can be/do/have this?” This thought and the attendant feelings and associations that come with it are what we first need to tap on.
Being able to deliberately craft and sculpt your own reality is a skill that comes in handy quite frequently in life. You can literally use it to be, do, or have anything your heart desires. And I can tell you from experience that it is freakin’ fun!
Thank you. im so grateful to have found your words. there are too many points that have resonated with me to mention, its almost like looking into a mirror. I’m very excited to commit to your methods and see what adventure awaits. you’ve done a powerfully good thing sharing this Gabriel thank you again sir. much love and respect to you.
It’s normal to sometimes just want to give up and resign yourself to the single life, even though you know deep down that you still yearn to find love. However, the good news is that no matter how bleak your experiences have been, it is possible to manifest love! Sometimes even with a specific person.
When you feel moved to take action from a place of passion and excitement, not stress, then go ahead and let those actions flow through you. It will seem to be more work to stop yourself — you’ll feel like you’re chickening out and holding back if you stay still. Follow your impulses. But don’t worry about the immediate results of those actions. There may be some twists and turns along the way.
For example, if you dreamed that you were being chased by an ominous creature through the dark streets of a strange city, that would be the manifest content of the dream. What that dream might actually mean, or the interpretation of its symbolic meaning, would be considered the latent content.
I did your guided meditation last night. It was an intense experience for me. By the end I was crying but it helped me stop caring about the outcome which i think was the one thing I was having trouble with.
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.
The first time I did this, she was really bad at it. I found several coins during our walk together, often coins that she walked right past without even noticing. Instead of finding coins, she didn’t notice anything. The coins didn’t register within her perceptual reality.
It’s a powerful thought, isn’t it? That we are responsible in some way for creating the reality around us. Sometimes it seems impossible to believe such a thing, particularly when things are not going well for us. We need to examine this in more detail!
Visualize very often what you want – as if it is already with you. This will help send out the vibrations to the Universe frequently. It is the Universe which will bring your desired product or preferred situations to you. It would be beneficial to refer to: Powerful Visualization Technique to achieve dream goals.
When you focus on the feelings of what you want it comes to you a billion times faster than you bossing the universe around telling it how he has to look and how he’s gonna come to you. That’s very limiting for several reasons. (Reasons I would explain if this were the chapter of the book, not a blog post.)
Hi! I absolutely loved this post (as I do all your posts) and it really gave awesome tools to use to start this year great. Anyway I was really hoping to ask you something and I`m sorry that this is a bit off topic, but I was wondering if you could tell me your opinion on this toothpaste? Do you think it`s paleo? Would you use it?
Yet, things might take longer than you expect for them to occur, and that’s quite alright. Not everything will happen within the timeframe that we decide for them to happen. In fact, it’s often far-removed from that. But as long as we don’t waver in our expectations and don’t falter in our persistence, they always come to pass. Always.
Only focus on manifesting money directly if you’re capable seeing the money as a plaything, like a video game score. It’s only something to manifest for fun, not something to get all worked up and stressed about.
This book is amazing! Just after reading it and applying it my life, ACTING AS IF MY EX WAS ALREADY THERE, I was able to completely let go of the how and the when. I knew that this relationship with him was already there. I knew that we were already one. Soon after, he contacted ME! We are now back together. Use the steps in this book but don’t get super frustrated and hung up on the whole process, relax and have fun knowing that you are creating your own reality. Your success is certain. Know that you and your specific person are already together. The law of attraction is not limited. It is unlimited! You can get whatever and WHOEVER you want. Apply these techniques but most importantly- HAVE FUN. Make feeling good your number one priority. Now I’m in a happy, healthy, committed relationship, it is like a dream! But first, i had to feel like it was already so. Now it is physically so, but it was vibrationally so all along. So much gratitude pours from my heart. I am living in abundance in all areas! I am so thankful and so grateful and so happy to have this beautiful relationship. You can do it! Believe in yourself and your ability to be in a loving relationship with your specific person. Your dreams are coming true! Everything is falling into place.
