Manifesting is the belief that one can by force of will, desire, and focused energy; make something come true on the physical level. The Indian guru Sathya Sai Baba’s followers report many, sometimes spectacular, miracles of various kinds which they attribute to him. He is observed to allegedly manifest vibuthi (holy ash) and small objects (rings, necklaces and watches) daily.
What do you think about that? Do you believe you can manifest things on the physical level by using force of will, desire, and focused energy? Isn’t that what the Law of Attraction is all about?
Now most of us can’t manifest instantly the way Sathya Sai Baba is reported to but we certainly can over a longer period of time.
Here is one of the biggest problems we face when manifesting. We want to make it happen. We can’t just let go and let God. The problem of course is that if we think we need to do it then we really don’t believe it.
If you want to manifest a new car and then start spending the next three months trying to figure out how to come up with the money to buy it, you just don’t get it.
There is nothing wrong with going out and getting brochures, picking a color, picking options, talking with the salesman, taking a test drive. In fact that kind of action is encouraged. But… it’s not your responsibility to figure out how the car is going to come to you. Your job is to decide that you want a new car.
What if you buy a raffle ticket for a car? What about receiving an unexpected gift or windfall? What if your current car catches on fire and you receive an insurance settlement that gets you into a new car? How about going to work for a company that provides you with a new car? There are many ways the car could come to you without you doing anything.
I will bet you that if you talk to 100 people over the next month and ask if they ever received something they were thinking about in an unexpected manor you would find that the majority indeed had or knew someone who had.
It’s when you decide you need to make it happen that it doesn’t happen. Just because you think that’s the only way to get what you desire. Don’t put a restriction on the way the Universe will provide you with what you desire, let the Universe decide and you will find that all you desire will start to manifest into your life.
