A couple of nights ago I was listening to a seminar with Dr. Wayne Dyer – who by the way is one of my favourite writers as well as spiritual teachers as he is truly inspiring, sharp and has a great deal of self distance. Dr Dyer was talking about manifesting. He was basically and how we as co-creative human beings have the power within us to create not only what we want but also, in a greater perspective, the peaceful world many wish to have.
For someone new to the subject talking about manifesting might of course sound somewhat overwhelming and for others even like a matter that is being very untrue or unrealistic. As a matter of fact, it actually made me laugh when I listened to Mr Dyer tell the story about a reaction he got on one of his seminars about manifestation as he said that:
“On a seminar I held I had this woman there who obviously did NOT know what she signed up on. After me giving my introduction I heard this lady in the back row ´-OMG this is just what I need. Two days with Mr Positive. And I’m gonna have to listen to him tell me that whatever I need I just have to ask for it`.”
I recognize that kind of reaction and I absolutely understand it. For someone who might feel that things are barely or never “going his or her way” it really sound like a utopia that thoughts become truths. I’ve been there. However, it actually is that simple.
When you change the way you look at things, the things that you look at change.
As someone always connected to God you can really create the life you want. We all have the capability to create more peace within our selves, not only in a spiritual perspective but also in a quantum scientific perspective. Each and every one of us, as pieces of this conscious “whole” – as pieces of God – also have within us the capacity to create what we want for ourselves and others. In unity we can do so much, not only for ourselves but for the world – this planet – as whole, by our own example to other who do not believe in us as “one”.
In order for you to manifest something into your life you need to realize that wishing is just not enough. You need to ask, with a passionate will. Ask God or whatever God standsfor, for you, as asking is a necessary step in receiving. We all know it “ask…and you shall receive”. Learn to put your attention on what you want, be passionate about asking for it – independably on what others might think – and you will receive it. We all have the ability to manifest as, as Deepak Chopra put it,
“the power to manifest is based on the biological functions supporting our need for survival.”
Remember though that what you really do not want, you will also get. That’s logical. Whatever you put your intention on in life you will get. What you think about is what will expand – “as you think so shall you be”. There’s an abundance of disciplines pointing out the power of thoughts as an amazing force to create into the material world. This is why if your inner energy is on what you don’t want, then what you don’t want is what you will manifest into your life. So, shift your focus instead to what you do want and that’s what you will receive.
“I have never listened to anyone out there telling me what to feel or do – well I listen as I’m polite about it – but I’ve left the tribe. I’ve left the tribe a long time ago. They don’t know I’ve left. They still send me invitation to all the tribal functions. And I rarely attend. They explain that away by saying ´-oh that’s Wayne, that’s just how he is, you know how he is, you can’t tell him anything´ and that’s fine.” – Wayne Dyer
