Power of Manifestation – Part 1

We are hardly aware that nearly every experience we have in life is a product of our own manifestation. Unless we look back at the recurring patterns in our lives, we cannot really see the truth or be aware of the immense power we have at our disposal. Click on the title to read more…

Every thought of ours has a ripple effect!

Nearly everything that happens to us is our creation. On the outside we may believe circumstances or people around us are responsible for certain experiences we go through in life. Looking at a situation in isolation certainly portrays it so. However, if you just take a step back and look at the whole picture called ‘life’ the truth becomes apparent.

How is it that we continually become victims in certain situations? Some of us repeatedly find ourselves in financial crunches. Some of us inevitably become the scapegoat of office politics. Some of us are regular victims of bullying. Some of us end up in only bad relationships. Some of us always get caught in the traffic.

Isn’t it uncanny that nature, fate, or people around always know to pick on you? When you look at an isolated situation of your boss bypassing you for a promotion it certainly looks like he’s been playing politics. But when you look at the pattern of similar events in your life where you never received what you deserved in your career, isn’t that too much of a coincidence? What is the common factor in all of these events? You!

Our subconscious has the ability to manifest into reality what it believes to be true. A person who believes that tragedy follows every happy situation in life, his subconscious makes it true. How does it exactly achieve such feats may be explained by rationality alone. It is true that, through our body language, facial reactions, and our general interactions with the world around we communicate our beliefs and personality.

For instance, a person who suffers from low self-esteem and believes she will never get approval from her family will always put forward a body behaviour which invites disapproval. She manages to get herself into situations where she will be disapproved for her actions. She attracts relationships that will prove her beliefs right.

In the next post, let us examine how to use this power of manifestation to our advantage and learn to manifest what we want in life.

Create your own happiness with Positive Manifestation

Positive Manifestation has four parts – belief, autosuggestion, imagination, and consistency of thoughts. Positive Manifestations can change your life forever!

I’ve discussed about the power of manifestation and how we use it to create our own troubles in life. Now let me give you the other side of the coin i.e., how we can use the same power of manifestation to generate positive outcome in our lives and also let us see how we can break old chains of negative manifestation.

There are four major parts to a successful manifestation – believe, give yourself autosuggestion, imagine, and maintain consistency of thought.

Believe: When we are manifesting a certain issue in our life, the first thing that we do is believe in the outcome so strongly that we are subconsciously preparing ourselves for the outcome. Similarly, belief plays a very strong role in creating positive manifestations also. But, how can we bring ourselves to believe in something when we are not certain of the outcome? How can we believe that we will hail an auto driver who would not demand extra fare? The truth is it is difficult or at times even impossible to believe. But a manifestation would not work without belief. Does that sound like a religious argument? You have to believe in God to realize him!

There is a simple alternative. Pretend you believe! Act as if you really believe that you are going to get into an Auto peacefully and pay a fair price. Pretend to believe you will have a pleasant chat with your boss. Slowly as the manifestations come true, you will find it easy to believe in creating situations of your choice.

Give Yourself Autosuggestion: Give yourself an appropriate autosuggestion. We always give ourselves autosuggestions during negative manifestations. They happen at the subconscious level and we are hardly even aware we are thinking negative thoughts. Later, as the manifestation has become a habit, these negative autosuggestions would become neuropathways. So give yourself a positive autosuggestion and repeat it as if you believe it.

Imagine: For the subconscious mind anything ‘known is pleasurable and the unknown is painful’. Which means it is reluctant to tread into the unknown. So make a positive manifestation ‘known’ to the subconscious mind through imagination. Imagine yourself going through the entire scenario in your mind. Combine positive autosuggestions with vivid imagination powerfully until it puts you in a positive frame of mind!

Maintain Consistency of Thought: This is important. You may find it difficult to maintain the same positive frame of mind at all times. But whenever that is happening go through the first three phases of belief (or pretense of it), autosuggestion and imagination. It is important that you maintain consistency of thought. During Negative Manifestations our belief, autosuggestion, and imagination are so consistent that it would be a miracle for the manifestation to fail!

Failure Manifestations: You CANNOT bend the will of others with manifestation. So if you are essentially trying to prevent your boss from giving you extra workload, you create a positive manifestation where your autosuggestion would be ‘I will move by my boss’s cabin peacefully and calmly. I will greet him cheerfully if he sees me.’ What you are doing here is influencing YOUR subconscious mind to take up the right mental expectancy and body language. This in turn will send the right message for your boss.

Give yourself positive sentences for Autosuggestions. If you don’t want to lose your temper at anyone, tell yourself ‘I will remain calm and understanding.’ A manifestation will fail if your autosuggestion is ‘I will not get angry.’

Similarly your imagination should involve mostly your actions and your frame of mind. If you feel somebody is trying to break the queue and go into the ATM machine unfairly, your autosuggestion should be ‘I will enter the ATM and withdraw the money peacefully and fairly.’

Start with smaller positive manifestations first. They are easier to believe and they will give you more confidence.

How we manifest our own troubles!

There are failures or obstacles in our lives that are situational and again there are failures in our lives that are our own doing. And we are responsible for more failures and issues in our lives than we realize. We create our own failures and issues in life without being consciously aware we are doing it. So how do we do it? We do it through the power of manifestation.

When our subconscious believes something it puts all its power to use to make that belief true. For example if your subconscious believes you are forgetful, it makes it true and we become forgetful. Similarly, if our subconscious believes your boss hates you and assigns you extra workload just out of spite, our subconscious will manifest it. It will make your boss hate you and give you more assignments.

But how can your mind influence your boss’s mind?

Let me show you by an example:

You are entering your office and you are passing by your boss’s cubicle. There is a glass partition and your boss is talking on the phone. As soon as you are moving past the cubicle, he happens to catch you out of the corner of his eye. He immediately summons you and assigns more work. How are YOU manifesting this?

Well, if your subconscious believes that your boss gives your work whenever he sees you then whenever you are passing by your boss’s cubicle you will be giving yourself autosuggestions that your boss will turn anytime and assign you more work (with or without you consciously knowing). Your body language automatically turns stealthy like a thief trying to escape. You try not to look at your boss but you watch his movements out of the corner of your eye.

Naturally, your boss’s mind will also notice a passing figure out of the corner of his eye. And when that figure appears to be moving with a thief’s body language, the subconscious becomes alert and your boss turns around. He calls you inside and immediately your body language becomes different. With all the autosuggestions you have given yourself, your shoulders will slump and your head tilts down slightly as if in surrender. Since the subconscious of your boss is telling you were slinking away like a guilty party, he will naturally feel inclined to give you more work thinking you were bunking some assignment.

When similar situations happen over time your boss will start manifesting the situation and it becomes a two-way feeding mechanism. When you are not slinking away, your boss’s subconscious is on lookout for you.

Another example could be our negotiations with Auto drivers, especially in cities like Hyderabad and Chennai. At times we become so frustrated with the cheating auto drivers that when we are hailing an auto, we are mentally prepared to get into an argument. So our subconscious mind tries to choose a guy who looks like a cheater. And after telling the driver our destination, we pause slightly waiting for him to give a price. This invitation is enough for the auto driver to start demanding more money and we have got our change to fight with him. Instead of simply going to our destination we spend our time getting upset and angry!

More serious issues are usually manifestations among family members. Wife subconsciously encouraging her husband to suspect her loyalty just because she believes his disapproval is a sign of his deep affection for her. Similarly, a mother waiting for her young daughter to sit very close to the television so she could admonish her. Manifestations between daughter-in-law and mother-in-law. And the list can go on…

In the next post I shall write about how these manifestations can be changed and how you can even create positive manifestations.
