While much information has been written about the steps for participating in successful manifestation, some key elements that are less explored have to do with our attitudes, our beliefs and our perceptions. These unmeasurable, intangible parts of the human experience are the very ones that affect our relationship with the universal intelligence.
9 Perceptions for Creating Abundance
1. Focus on what is good.
Learning to live in this way can be challenging, but with desire, awareness and practice we can each learn how to create a life of greater peace. First we must choose to live in trust rather than in fear. Then, when we become aware of those moments when fear takes its grip, we can remind our self that we have a choice. Rather than focusing on what is “bad” or “wrong” or “unfair” we can change how we think. I have lived a lifetime of creating meaningful outcomes with successful results even when all odds seemed to be against me by focusing on what is good. My husband and I trust that we are well supported and that everything turns out fine even when life throws us a curve ball.
2. Take action and let go with trust.
The best approach for successful manifestation occurs when we have both faith in the life force to do its part AND we are willing to take action and do our part too. Much like a bird in flight, we must find a working balance between flapping our wings and knowing when to rest. This ebb and flow between taking action and letting go is founded in trust; trust in our self to do our best and trust in the life force to support our goal. This is similar to when we are young and we instinctively trust our parents to do what they say they will do. This intrinsic knowing demonstrates a different attitude of “Thanks for your help. I feel peaceful and I trust that my needs are met.”
Although many people struggle to live in this way, the life force hasn’t any ego interference and easily creates congruent responses that support the continuum of life. Just as we are more inclined to give to others when we know our efforts are received with joy and appreciation, the same holds true for the creative life force. An “attitude of gratitude” works to our advantage because it is a respectful and humble way to live.
3. There is always enough.
Everything that is needed for our survival, for our happiness and for our desired experiences already exists. There is plenty for everyone. If you think about an apple, it contains many seeds within its core. Each one of these seeds can produce another apple tree. Apple trees grow and give forth a great many apples each year. This cycle of giving goes on and on.
Instead of living with fear and believing that there is not enough, our job is to receive and enjoy only as much as is needed. Rather than living excessively, the universe serves all of life with a natural flow of abundance that is just right.
4. Fear and worry block results
Fear and worry tend to evoke the “prove it to me attitude.” What relationship can function smoothly under this kind of disrespectful pressure? Rather than needing proof, when we are grateful for what we already have, it opens the door for more to come. Keep in mind that the universal energy supports all of life. A deer doesn’t worry about growing more fur for the winter. When we trust that the universe supports all of her creatures, including us, and we are humble and grateful for what we have then this opens the door for greater possibilities.
5. The universal intelligence is always ready to help.
The natural connection that permeates all of life presents us with opportunities or answers, often in subtle, or disguised ways. We often refer to these moments as “coincidental.” Our part is to be present, aware, and willing to listen or to step through the doors when these are presented. If you miss the chance, don’t worry, it will be provided for you again.
6. Have kind intentions for the common good of all.
The universal energy is happy to support you and your desires as long as these serve to make the world a better place. Even if you are seeking something for yourself, there is always some kind of impact that affects others. When you focus on creating common good with appreciation and humility and you are willing to do your part, you are more apt to influence the universal energy to support your cause and create a balanced relationship that supports positive results.
7. Universal time and ego time.
Universal time is measured by our heartbeat. Ego time is measured by our logical mind. Perceptions of time can be tricky and tend to be based on how we feel in our current environment. The process of manifestation works best when we let go of ego time constraints and allow the magic to unfold. Heartfelt time is “the very best time for everyone involved.” This is often different from what our ego mind wants. The same amount of universal time passes whether we trust and feel peaceful or whether we get trapped in feeling impatient and frustrated. Feeling peaceful supports health and vibrant life. Letting go of attachments to outcome including time-lines, demonstrates complete trust and confidence in knowing that our desires are realized. Again, we must be willing to participate in this dance and to do our part.
8. Nothing is ever as it appears to be.
We are taught to believe that “seeing is believing” yet in truth we have it backwards. “What I believe creates how I see” is a much more accurate interpretation. Most people can relate to an experience when things appeared to be a certain way, yet with more time or information we learn that our perceptions were inaccurate. This has to do with focusing on the tangible world of effect rather than the unseen world of causation. It also reflects back to our own insecurities and subconscious patterns. Whenever you are in a moment of being judgmental or fearful, remind yourself that “Nothing is ever as it appears to be.” You may be surprised at how different you feel. It can alter your responses as well as influence what happens next. One thing always leads to another.
9. Let go of judgments and find acceptance.
Judgments are a man-made perspective. Many of our judgments come from past experiences and tend to be founded in whether or not we feel safe, accepted or validated. Perceived judgments can be mistaken for our intuitions which provide inner awareness for our survival. Remember that in the eyes of the universal energy, we are all the same and everything just is. Acceptance is a wonderful gift. When we live with love in our heart and we free our self of judgments, we open our self for receiving what is positive and uplifting.
In closing, I strongly believe that a new consciousness, one that is more evolved and constructive is emerging. When we make the choice to live with compassion, trust, love and appreciation for life and all that is, then we create increased good in our mind and body, in our life and ultimately in the world.
