I first started using the Law of Attraction consciously to manifest things back in 2002.
I say “consciously” because in reality we are ALL always manifesting every aspect of our realities, whether we realize it or not.
There is no such thing as being “good at manifesting” vs “not so good at manifesting”.
We are ALL always manifesting everything in our lives, but the only questions is how skilled we become at manifesting those things we WANT or DESIRE versus those things that we DON’T WANT or DON’T DESIRE.
Lately, I’ve been noticing that my skill / ability to manifest things that I want / desire has been getting much, much stronger.
I am becoming more and more proficient at manifesting what I want faster and easier than ever before.
As I’ve been going through this experience, what I’ve come to realize with more clarity than ever is that the MOST IMPORTANT manifesting skill that we can work on is to consciously be able to manifest how we feel in each moment.
Meaning, yes you can manifest THINGS or SITUATIONS or PEOPLE in your life, but our true desire behind any of those things is to feel a certain way.
For example, we may want to manifest a new TV because we imagine having friends over to watch a football game, or the latest UFC match, or having a movie night full of laughs and enjoyment and we think we want the TV, but in reality we want to experience the FEELING of having that experience with our friends.
Or another example is when we want to manifest a vacation or a trip somewhere. We THINK that we want to manifest a trip to Disneyland or to Paris or to Mexico or some place “out there”, but in reality what we really want is to experience a feeling that we may have felt before while on vacation.
Maybe we went to Disneyland and as we walked through the front gate, we felt this FEELING of wonder and awe and amazement, and now we want to go to Disneyland again because we want to recapture that feeling.
Or maybe we went on a trip to some warm place where we sat on the beach and just felt the sun on our skin and enjoyed the feeling of relaxation and stress freedom because we allowed ourselves to not think about our work or our jobs or our businesses or any of the other things that normally race through our minds.
Or maybe we imagine getting into a relationship with someone and we think it is that person or that relationship that we want, but in reality what we REALLY want is the FEELING that we believe we will feel by having those things.
Now here’s the little secret to manifesting all of those things…
See, if you become good at manifesting the FEELINGS that you believe you will experience when you have those things, even before you have those things, then you will manifest those things even faster.
For example, one of the things that I have been blogging about in in the last few months is the FREE CAR that I want to manifest from Blogging.
A car is a “THING” but in reality it is not the car that I want. What I really want is the FEELING that I will feel when I have manifested a free car from blogging and how much fun it will be to drive my new car.
Now, here’s the cool thing.
For the last month or so, when I’ve been driving my old car I’ve been imagining myself already being inside my new car and driving inside it and I’ve been focusing on trying to capture that FEELING of owning a new car.
I’m not yet at the point where I feel 100% the same way as if I had the car already in my possession but the first time I did this I was able to convince my mind that I was already driving my new car by about 20%…
… so I felt 20% of the amazing feeling of having that new car already…
Then, the next time I did this I got to about 30-50% feeling of having the new car…
And then a funny thing happened. It turned out that my wife got HER new car…
And what’s really interesting about that is that I’ve had a chance to take her new car for a drive a few times and NOW when I drove her car I imagined that it was my new car, and it was even easier to do it since obviously her car is NEW and it’s really fun to drive.
So now when I drove her car, I was able to get to the point where in my mind I was 80-90% convinced that I was driving my new car already, and I was able to FEEL 80-90% of the joy / fun / excitement of already having my new car – even though I don’t have it yet.
See, that’s the little “secret” to making the Law of Attraction work in your life.
If you can develop the ability to manifest FEELINGS inside of yourself, you will be able to manifest anything and everything that you want.
Now, some of you might be thinking “Oh, well Paul it’s easy for you to say, because your wife just bought a new car so it’s easy to get yourself to feel excited and happy and joyful about having a new car when you’re driving a brand new car, but my car is old so how am I supposed to be happy about that?!”
Well, that’s just an excuse your mind is giving you.
Here’s the thing… way back when I was 18 years old I had saved up $1800 in cash from working at my job at McDonald’s and I used that money to buy my first car.
It was a 1983 Honda Accord. It was brown in color and it had rusted fenders and basically it was a piece of crap! LOL.
It was a beater car, and it had engine issues and rust holes and all kinds of problems that I had to fix – BUT – I was SO HAPPY!
I remember the day I got that car, and just sitting in it at night, by myself and feeling so HAPPY and EXCITED and JOYFUL because it was *MY* car that I had to bought for my own money.
That car represented FREEDOM to me and I loved it!
So here’s the thing… if I can feel that much excitement and joy owning a piece of crap $1,800 rusted Honda Accord, there really is no excuse!
It’s all just how we choose to program our minds.
You CAN program your mind to feel relaxed and worry-free without having to fly to Mexico and sit on the beach. You can feel stress-free and relaxed right NOW, wherever you are.
You CAN program your mind to feel loved and appreciated even if you haven’t manifested the perfect relationship yet.
You CAN program your mind to feel excited and happy even if you haven’t manifested whatever that “THING” is that you’re trying to manifest.
And the cool thing is that the better you get at manifesting those FEELINGS, which really are what you’re going after anyways, then the vacations and the relationships and the things that you want will also show up anyways!
Here’s a cool video from Abraham / Esther Hicks where Abraham shares their perspective on this topic:
