I’m sitting on my balcony, watching the rain come in… And it occurred to me that I need to say a few things this wintery Sunday afternoon about manifesting what you want from life, and more specifically, how to do it.
I just signed another 12-month lease on this place, but have you heard the story about how I landed here? How I manifest this apartment?
I thought you might appreciate this insight because you can put it into action in a few simple steps too…
The thing about manifestation is that it’s in the detail. That means being clear on what you want.
What’s the one tangible thing that you want to create in your life right now? Can you visualize a very definitive outcome? Is it something that will make you happy, feel good, be at peace?
In my case, it was this view! I wasn’t happy living where I was living. And I wanted to live in a place that had this view. Simple as that.
So here’s what I did:
- I got online and found a photo of the view I wanted, and I stuck it next to my computer where I’d see it every day. The image I used was actually taken from one of the apartments you can see in the photo above. I wasn’t too fussy where my apartment was, I just wanted the view. I also wanted a balcony to sit on, and enough space to run my business. The other details didn’t matter so much to me.
- A few times a day I’d look at the image, and visualize myself sitting on the balcony looking out over the lake with a cup of tea, my laptop, and my to-do list. I got emotionally involved in the image. I just let my mind work through it – feeling relaxed, feeling organized, feeling happy.
As Raymond Holliwell says in Working with the Law, there’s no point in wanting something if you aren’t expecting it to turn up. If you’re visualizing something but not expecting it, then it’s wasted effort.
The Law of Attraction only works when you are emotionally invested in the outcome. It’s that feeling of receiving the thing you want that puts the law into action.
So you’ve got to find a way to feel yourself already in receipt of what you want. Because that’s where you are specifically giving direction to the Universe that you are going to experience this thing. And from there, you can attract the circumstances required to move it from your mind and into your physical reality.
When I got online to find this amazing view, I realized there was nothing available. I found some apartments in the area and decided to look at a couple just to see what was out there…. and immediately said no to them both – too dark, too small, not what I wanted.
But intuition was telling me two things – don’t give up on the view, and increase you’re the price you’re willing to pay.
When we really want to attract something our intuition will always lead us clearly and patiently. The key is to listen! Because as soon as I’d committed to that rental increase, having no idea where I’d find the extra money, this apartment popped up online – literally within a few hours.
I booked a time to view it, turned up and found out that none of the other people who’d booked in to see it had turned up… I could feel that it was mine. I didn’t have to visualize anymore. It was done. And a few hours after submitting my application it was confirmed. I signed the lease a few days later.
So that’s the logistics of it all.
But I’m conscious as I write this that the real moral of the story is allowing yourself to RECEIVE the good things you seek.
I could have just decided that I couldn’t afford it. I could have rejected my intuition about increasing the rent. I could have stayed where I was in a bigger place that had no view, dealing with a real estate agent I didn’t like. I could have settled for one of the first apartments I saw.
I didn’t do any of that.
I chose to receive what I wanted, knowing that all the details would be sorted out along the way. And, of course, they were. I chose to believe in my right to what I wanted too. The place I was living previously had outlived its use. My inner self was calling out for me to receive more now…
So what is it that you want? What is your soul calling out for? And are you willing to make it happen?
