If you have not been following this is the fourth article in an seven part
series. This will make since on it’s own but you will get more out of it if you
see the whole thing. You can see the last lesson here.
Let’s break down intention manifestation and demystify it a bit. When you really
break it down you get:
Desire + Belief + Action = Obtainment
It truly is that simple. Wait, if it is that simple why do so many people have
trouble with it. Well, let’s take a look. Desire is not that hard, although I
have met people that can’t decide what they want and in turn are not manifesting
anything. However, many people can come up with a clear desire and are still not
manifesting it. That brings us to belief. This is the hard one and likely, the
problem you are having if you are having trouble manifesting your desires.
So, what are beliefs? Beliefs, when you break it down, are repeated thoughts
that have strong feelings attached to them.
Our feelings have a big impact on how we manifest our desires. Feelings give off
strong vibrations that influence the magnetic energy field that our body
produces (more later). Now, think back for a second to a past lesson,
everything is vibrating, these vibrations are very important and now it begins
to make sense why. The energy field around our body largely represents our
ability to communicate our intentions to the universe. With that said our
ability to manifest looks just like T. Harv Eker explains:
Thoughts -> Feelings -> Actions = Results (obtainment)
The interesting thing is, If you have a desire and you truly believe you will
obtain it your belief will shape your thoughts, feelings, and actions.
So, the critical piece is belief and that is what we are going to work on.
Let’s start with an old quote:
“Chance favors the prepared mind.”
With that said, I say, “A prepared mind believes.”
That’s why Dr. Pasteur is correct when he says chance favors the prepared mind.
Prepared minds are minds that believe. Often it takes years for someone to
believe they can make a scientific discovery or make a million dollars. However,
if they could generate the absolute belief upfront they would obtain it almost
immediately. Action is still required for the person with absolute belief but
the action be more supported by the universe and seem minimal to the outside
I believe what Dr. Pasteur called chance we call luck. Whether it’s a scientific
insight that comes out of nowhere while you’re stirring your coffee or a chance
meeting with an angel investor, luck, or what we perceive as luck, has something
to do with shaping our lives. For those of you that believe you are one of the
unlucky ones, don’t get down on yourself, I believe you can change your luck.
Let’s get back to Dr. Pasteur. The big question the quote brings up is, how do
we prepare our mind? Let’s explore how to prepare our mind and break down
intention manifestation a bit. Some people see intention manifestation as
something outside of normal everyday life, as some mystical processes, and that
is just not the case. You create your life, put another way, your inner world
creates your outer world. There are many ways to say it but it is happening
whether you know it or not.
Dr. Pasteur was a French microbiologist and chemist who made some great
discoveries, to include the invention of the process of pasteurization (when you
buy pasteurized milk you can thank Dr. Pasteur). He spent a lot of time
studying, experimenting, reviewing, and contemplating the data to come up with
the above conclusion. I have studied many other successful visionaries that
manifested their goals and I have broken out what I interpret as a great process
of preparing your mind, or making your mind believe, which will in turn move
chance in your favor.
Again, all you really have to do is state your desire and truly believe you will
obtain it. The key here is truly believe. So I have worked out a process for
manifesting below, it’s really a process for increasing your belief because the
process of manifestation is Desire + Belief + Action = Obtainment, everything
else is increasing your level of belief.
Visualize –provide vision
These don’t have to be in order and they are iterative.
To better understand this process let’s look at another person that our society
has deemed successful (I didn’t say happy, I can’t confirm that). It might be
helpful to show these principles at work in people other than scientists and
self help gurus. My favorite example is Steve Jobs. I have no idea if he knew
the new age definition of the law of attraction and intention manifestation but
I have one example of him using very effective methods that I outline above.
When Steve went back to apple after a 15-year hiatus he found the research
project for what is now known as the Imac. He decided the Imac was going to be
the next big thing for Apple and he provided that vision to the company. He went
so far as to get a Styrofoam cutout (prototype, a fantastic way to visualize)
that he carried everywhere with him. Steve increased the research efforts on the
project and increased his interaction with the team (study) and he set sales
goals that he intended the company to reach (Goals). Steve was a consistent
meditator, while I don’t have the exact routine, I am sure there was meditation
involved (Meditation). When the Imac was released, it broke all sales goals that
were projected and put apple back on the map.
Now let’s take a step back. I am saying that you can organize your mind and
thoughts and it will re-organize your outer experience (your inner world creates
your outer world). Now your question might be: why? Thanks for asking. That is
what I discuss in the next lesson so don’t miss out. I will discuss the 4-step
process in more detail and talk about organizing chance. Yes, I mean changing
and improving your luck!
