There are a lot of resources online about how to manifest, and you may find that the information is pretty consistent. Truth is, we’re all capable of manifesting; some more easily than others, and often without even realizing we’re doing it.
But many also find it difficult to manifest for a few reasons. Sometimes, there are obstacles in the way that need to be released. Sometimes, people are not clear enough on what it is they’re trying to manifest. Sometimes, we revert to masculine energy (the most dominate source of energy used – a consequence of living in a patriarchal society) to strong arm our will. However, the biggest obstacle that gets in the way is attachment.
Many attach themselves to what they’re trying to manifest. They become obsessed. The ego brain takes over and begins to demand that whatever is wanted look a certain way, show up in a certain way, and on a specific timeline. This is NOT how manifesting works! Your only tasks are to remove blocks, get clear, believe it’s coming, and DETACH from the outcome. This last piece is important.
If you get stuck on how YOU think your desires should manifest, you will constantly be on the lookout for something that is smaller than what the Universe imagines for you, and possibly miss it when it arrives.
For example, when I began the home buying process, I had a specific vision of building a glamorized yurt. I was HELL BENT on finding property, getting approved for a loan, and building the structure I wanted. Unfortunately, most realtors don’t know what a yurt is, and most banks don’t want to fund one. So, you can imagine the frustrations of my Leo Sun and Aries Moon.
As I was venting to my therapist, she asked, “Do you know what you want your home to feel like?” I gave a resounding “yes” because I did, to which she responded, “Well then focus on that.” That piece of advice forced me to surrender MY plan, and open to what the Universe had in store. Now, I’m in a home of my own much better than a yurt – much better than what I came up with on my own.
When manifesting, all you must do is get clear on your intention, prepare yourself to receive it by removing obstacles, and know that it’s on the way. Then, let the Universe do its thing. Trust that the Universe will match your vibration and do you a solid with something even better.
