Manifestation is not the same thing as goal setting.
You’ve probably heard that you have to know exactly what it is you want and then focus on it to manifest it. Set the intention. Visualize it. Think about it all the time. Take #alltheinspiredaction (which you can get confused by when you are in a state of feeling like you have to control and force).
But for a lot of people (myself included) this actually creates resistance. It makes you ninja-death-grip your desire, which cuts off your flow.
The way a lot of people are teaching manifestation is not the truth. It’s what they learned from someone else who didn’t fully understand it either. So misinformation keeps getting passed around.
I want to clarify this for you.
Manifestation isn’t actually about the things you want. It’s about the feeling you think those things are going to give you once you have them. I know you’ve heard this before, so bear with me. This is next part is what you probably haven’t heard before.
You don’t have to focus on what you want for it to manifest. A lot of times, it will actually manifest faster if you’re NOT thinking about it because as humans we get attached, and our wobbly energy mucks up our attracting.
Instead, focus on good feeling thoughts. ANY good feeling thoughts. Think about kittens for half an hour if you need to, and that is adequate “mindset work”. Instead of thinking about your version 2.0 self and forcing yourself to be that in an effort to get the thing (which is creating a shit load of resistance btw) focus on how awesome, capable, and valuable you are RIGHT NOW.
Manifestation is about appreciating what is. (That’s “gratitude” btw)
Appreciating and accepting yourself speeds up the manifestation process. Feeling light and good, for the sake of feeling light and good (without any other agenda), speeds up the process. Because you only *think* you want the thing. What you truly want is the feeling. And what I want you to see is that anything you feel is lacking in your material world is only lacking because you’re withholding your own love, joy, and peace from yourself.
Focus on that - self love, joy, and inner peace - and your material world will start to match what you’ve got goin’ on on the inside. And you can trust that the Universe knows what to send you to make you happy. You don’t have to harp on it and keep reminding the Universe that “Hey, I’m setting this intention again. I want 3 clients by Friday, and a free coffee today to prove you exist, and an angel number, and send me that $10k while you’re at it.” Netflix and chill. The Universe is already on it. You can stop worrying because what’s in control of your receiving, is how much you are giving to yourself. You are already abundant if you let yourself be.
