We talk so much about how to manifest what we want, but I think that sometimes we’re missing an important component. I believe that the thing we’re trying to manifest, is not so much a thing, but a feeling. I know for myself, when I talk about manifesting physical abundance, in the financial, material realm, the end result I’m looking for is not that my bills are paid; it goes deeper than that – what I’m working on manifesting is a feeling of safety, of security.
For the last week or so (probably longer), I’ve been riding a roller coaster – One moment I feel like everything is coming together and the next, I’m in the throes of an anxiety attack that has me paralyzed. I started to think about the feelings that present themselves at each end of the spectrum. I realized that the anxiety is pure fear, and the moments of calm are safety. Stands to reason that what I’m really looking for is a feeling of safety.
Yesterday, I was super tired in the afternoon. I was at someone else’s house – a place where I feel very safe. I laid down and fell immediately asleep (unheard of for me) – and when I was awoken 30 minutes later, I felt completely refreshed and well rested. Why is that? Clearly, it’s because of the safety I felt. We could go on and on about the psychological reasons and past trauma that makes me feel so unsafe at times, but the only thing I really need to know is how to make myself feel that sense of safety.
This morning, I had an obligation looming over my head that I was worried about. I started my serious worrying about 7AM. At about noon, I had figured out a way to take care of that obligation. I sat for a moment in gratitude, my heart was light and I felt completely…. can you guess? Safe. I felt completely Safe.
I made sure that I took note of the feeling. The ease in my body, the lightness of my heart, the stillness of my mind. I felt so much gratitude and I filed that whole feeling. Now whenever I need to feel safe, whenever I need to manifest something, I only need remember that feeling and I’m halfway there. Of course, I then need to take action, seek guidance as to what it is that I’m looking for and what I need to do to align myself, to put myself in the pathway of what I’m looking for. But, the difference is, I don’t operate from the place of fear and angst, I operate from the place of safety, love, and gratitude.
So What Do You Want to Manifest?
Are your manifestation goals financial? Social? Get really clear about what you’re trying to create and then think back to a time where you did receive that. Get quiet, remember the feeling on a cellular level – you could call it role playing, acting as if, whatever you like… but the point is that you really feel the feeling.
Allow yourself some time to sit with that, really give it the space to create the next steps that you need in order to make it a current reality.
