I hear the slogans out there within the spiritual communities, “you can manifest anything you want, right here, right now!”
“All you have to do is want it and allow it!! I laugh!
I don’t laugh because it is impossible, I laugh because we think we are in charge!
We get so caught up with “wanting” and “needing” change that we trip ourselves up and miss the process of the unfolding, which is meant to teach us and is happening for a reason.
Every moment of our lives is a manifestation, whether we like it or not. And trying to escape the discomfort is basically escaping the growth.
Plus, spirituality has become a money-making industry, which is suggesting to us that we can change our circumstances NOW!
This results in people blaming and shaming themselves as incapable or not worthy because they aren’t able to manifest as quickly as some others suggest.
For example, I heard a woman say with resignation in her voice, “I guess I am just not a good enough “manifester”. Maybe I am not meant to manifest?”
That’s not what spirituality is about and not what it is meant to do for us. Spirituality is not about racing ahead, pushing the river or to prove how powerful we are.
Surely we are “manifesters” and are powerful incarnations of gods and goddesses, but we are here to evolve on a soul level first and foremost. If something you really, really want is not to your highest and greatest good, guess what, you’re not going to get it. Or, you may get a washed down version of what is possible by forcing and willing it into existence that will only backfire and serve you as yet another lesson.
Manifestation only serves us if and when we are consciously manifesting from our souls wisdom. This co-creation requires a relationship with our higher self. As any healthy relationship it requires trust and listening, it takes time and attention. When we are aware of this relationship with the part of our soul that knows our intentions for incarnating, we feel when it is time for action, for preparation or for patience.
When we are in relationship with our higher self, manifestation becomes a dance, a rhythm and enjoyable. We do not need to push the river anymore or aim to stroke the ego by having to impress. We trust that all manifestations will materialize, when the timing and all circumstances are in perfect alignment to assure success and greatest impact. This way, manifestation becomes a dance that is effortless, confident and empowered.
As with everything here on earth, the concept of manifestation is a wonderful tool to measure our inner connection with our higher guidance. In the end this entire earth play is just an illusion and made up out of energy.
The second we get caught up in the manifestation drama of how and when we want it to happen, we are caught up in the illusion and have lost our true self connection. Meanwhile we miss out on the lessons and the growth we gain mostly from uncomfortable experiences.
“Yes,” so maybe it does suck, not to be able to pay your rent on time. I’ve been there! And it made me stronger! I learned to trust in myself and in the light.
I gained in self-respect, patience and persistence. There is a higher orchestration governing everything and the ultimate way of manifesting is to learn to connect with its energy. To step into the flow of right timing means to pay attention to what we feel deep within. And we may very well feel the passion and excitement that comes with creating something meaningful to us, only to become disappointed by it not working out the way we had hoped it would. Again, I have been there! To get shut down on an idea and creation of mine many, many times over before it finally came into flow was highly frustrating and deflating. But it served me in the long run, it strengthened me, it broke my ego, it gave me perseverance and most importantly – myself.
In the end this is what all manifestations are meant to give to us – ourselves. No matter how big or small the manifestation, it will take us through a process and give to us what we need the most spiritually and on our soul level. It is not about the accomplishments, they will be there if you keep following your passion and inspiration. It is about the journey of healing, growth, trust, strengthening and authentic empowerment that comes with every manifestation.
Whatever your hearts desires may be, know that most likely you will be taken through a unique process, distinct to your souls evolution. The manifestations that take the longest will be the ones worth working and waiting for, because they will stand the test of time. And, the longer the process the stronger you will be to own your responsibilities that come as a package deal.
Trust that what is meant to be yours will appear in your reality. The soul that you are is always aiming to steer you onto the highest path of your potential for this lifetime, in all areas of your life.
With blessings of love and light,
