Have you noticed that how, when, and what you manifest in your life is changing? Previously, we would just place our order with the universe and, hopefully, it would respond.  We requested what we wanted and visualized it happening in the present moment. If we took the process to a higher level, we would express gratitude before it materialized and affirm that it was ‘already here.’ We would also be open to something greater for the highest good of all concerned.  This still holds influence in manifesting but placing a very specific request, as if the universe was a vending machine, has lost its magnetism.

Sometimes, we would use a more evolved word such as ‘co-creation’ to manifest in a reciprocal manner with the Divine or God. Sometimes we fooled ourselves into thinking we were co-creating, when all along we were just trying to control the universe.

Higher Vibration

Since our vibration and the Earth’s frequency have increased, and we are still in the throes of the Great Awakening or Shift, our approach needs to change.  For those who are committed to their spiritual growth,  acknowledgement of how multi-dimensional we are is a must.  The fifth dimension of Unity Consciousness and the Mystical Heart (love for all of humanity) has become readily accessible to us.  We are also living life more from our souls versus our egos and honouring the I AM presence, or the knowledge that God is within. Hence, when we try to manifest from the ego only in the third dimension, it does not work very well.

Paradoxical Intent

Coming from fear, desperation and urgency seems to hold negative gravity now more than ever! Author, Sandra Anne Taylor, uses the phrase ‘Paradoxical Intent’. She states that “The Law of Paradoxical Intent reflects the Law of Magnetism in warning that you’ll only get a return of your own negative energy. If you’re desperate to make something happen, that repulsive vibration will push it away, turning away the very people and situations that might bring your desired outcome. Your desperation, therefore, creates the paradox, or the opposite of your original intention, leading you to failure instead of success.”

If we focus on what we don’t have, we become unhappy and just attract more lack. We don’t live in the present moment as we are always desperately waiting for something to arrive.
In order to manifest effectively, now more than ever, fear cannot be present.

Instead, fear, urgency and desperation need to be replaced by faith, hope, trust, belief and calmness. We cannot have unhappiness or dissatisfaction around not having what we want in our life, as these are not magnetic emotions. Rather, these feelings push goodness, and what we desire, away from us.

On God’s Time

Importantly, manifestation is occurring more on God’s time and we need to come to an acceptance of this. If we are manifesting from our ego only (and have fully owned our spiritual nature) this can set us up for failure.  This is not to say that our ego is not involved in manifestation, because we do have material and physical needs to be met. Also, it is important to let go of expectations regarding how the manifestation will show up with respect to details and form.

If you are at a higher level of spiritual development, it is almost as if the soul will assign priority on what you manifest. The soul will also take into consideration whether or not what you desire will actually benefit you. If deemed to be detrimental to your soul’s growth, then perhaps your soul will block it. If your soul determines that you don’t need a 10,000 square foot mansion in order to grow spiritually, then you won’t manifest it. In fact, for some, a house of this size could be a hindrance as they would need to be so materially focused on its upkeep.

There are few people in the field of spirituality who are extremely wealthy. The exception is celebrity-based authors who are known worldwide. One can imagine that some may struggle internally so that they don’t become too material-based. Others, because of their global prominence, might wrestle with their egos so that they don’t become too fame oriented and turn into demanding divas.

Stay in Synch with Your Soul

Everybody, in coming from their egos, would love to have millions but, if it is not meant to be for our soul, it won’t happen. It is interesting that some who win the lottery lose it all within a few years. Others, who now don’t have to work, become bored with their lives. Here, the manifestation of millions of dollars ended up being an important soul lesson.

Be sure that what you want to manifest is in alignment with your soul and I AM presence, and is for the highest good for all.  Have a sense of turning it over to the universe and ‘letting it go’ so that you are not attached. Remember that you are what you hold in your Source; it will be reflected back. If you want more love, give more love. When it includes other humans it becomes more complicated since we cannot interfere with their free will.

Magic and Synchronicity

Also, leave the request more open ended and the universe will work its magic and synchronicity for you. For example, for prosperity you can state a specific monetary amount, but strongly intend unlimited prosperity with an array of infinite possibilities. This way, more can flow to you and you might get some pleasant surprises!

Very importantly, have gratitude for what you have; thank the universe and this will allow more to come to you. When you don’t manifest on your timeline, do not go to disappointment; go to a space of neutrality and know that something else will fill the gap. Always, come from the glass half full versus half empty belief. Being spiritual does not mean taking a vow of poverty, but rather claiming abundance and prosperity as your birthright. The universe is friendly, and similar to you it likes to create and wants to support you in your co-creation. Believe in a good, bountiful universe, that miracles do happen and TRUST!
