Google may supply you with the top articles on how to become a master manifester, but let’s be honest – if it was that easy we’d all be driving Lamborghinis by now.
I’m not going to list out all the ways to manifest because the information is out there. We know that visualization is important, we know that feeling how it feels to have something is critical.
We know that you need to know what you want and be specific about that want in order to attract it into your life.
However, I have done all these things repeatedly over a long period of time only to realize that nothing came of it. I’ve also manifested something in a matter of days, and it turns out it wasn’t even in alignment with me.
Manifesting is a form of creating, and when those juices are flowing we can easily illuminate the dark or the light without even realizing it. A good example is this:
Let’s say all day I say to myself, “I hope it doesn’t rain. I really hope it doesn’t rain during the ceremony later.”
You may be thinking you are doing the rain dance with these convictions and saying to the Gods, “these are positive vibes for a sunny day!”
Sike – you’re actually emitting the vibration that you would like it to rain, because the focus is on it raining, and not on it being sunny – Are you picking up what I’m putting down?
This same idea applies when you are manifesting something with knowledge and purpose -you can do amazing things like journaling our goals or perhaps picking out furniture for a new apartment you haven’t gotten yet.
These are ways to actively align you with the vibration needed to achieve the desired reality you seek.
But unfortunately, this is merely talking the talk without walking the walk, and here’s why:
You can’t put in the effort to align with a frequency just on the weekend or for a week when you’re feeling spicy to properly manifest what you want.
This is not a side hustle or a fun game, it’s stepping into a new reality.
That means that every thought, every action, and every decision should be in alignment with that reality.
You may be thinking – how the hell do I do this and still function like a normal human, and the answer is, change how you human.
To change how you human, you take aligned action.
Aligned action is the deliberate practice of moving through your day with the goal of only experiencing things that feel good to you – Decisions that feel expansive and light in your body.
As an entrepreneur, I was challenged with this quite a bit as I was the one controlling my schedule and could easily sway out of aligned action.
As a freelance writer, my client base is critical for my income. However, I noticed that when I concentrated on the number of clients or the number of projects I had, all I thought about was how much money I’d make that month.
I was no longer present for the work, I wasn’t grounded in my day, because I was in hustle mode trying to add more to my plate instead.
This is not an aligned action, because it is taking me out of alignment.
As a result, I wasn’t getting the specific projects I wanted to work on, and I felt like I wasn’t successful in my efforts, even though I was actively working towards manifesting them.
I had to take a step back from my work and have a day to myself and sit with this. Sometimes when we think we’ve let go, we are actually holding on too tight, so I decide to relax my efforts and instead lean into the faith I had in my own ability as a writer.
The following day my only focus was on my writing. I wrote the pieces that were sitting in my heart and ready to be written, and I finished work in half the time.
I reached out to potential clients who had projects that filled my soul regardless of the pay. I didn’t count up my invoices or double-think my spending.
In fact, I spent more. I treated myself like my salary was double what it was.
I did this for a month. Guess what happened? I had the most impressive month to date. I had the highest measurable results, the quality of my writing landed me a dream job, and most of all, I was the happiest I’d ever been.
Aligned action frees you from the shackles of your ego.
This article I am writing as we speak is an aligned action. It’s wasn’t on my content calendar this week, but my soul said this is what I’d like to speak on today.
To clarify, aligned action is commonly missed when manifesting because we decide to do things that might help us manifest something but it’s not aligned with us as a person.
Understand that you won’t ever have to sacrifice your integrity to be worthy of something.
So instead of doing what you think you should do to attract a partner, to land your dream job, or afford that new house, start doing less.
Start dialing it back and focusing your full energy on the actions that really align with your heart – this is what moves mountains.
If you want a new job and feel the most in your pocket networking, forget all the time you spend trying to amp your resume and just go to networking events. Have faith that your ability to connect is what will present an amazing opportunity for you.
This is a new world, and in this reality, we are picking out the colors, creating the landscape, and deciding who’s in the portrait. So harness that power you’ve watered down and lock into aligned action because we’ve got a blank canvas to fill.
