One thing that has become more and more clear to me as I walk my path of spiritual growth and awareness is that we are literally surrounded by all that we need, always. We are amazing transmitters of energy and conduits to receive energy into our being as well. Information is constantly going in and out of our fields, a non-stop communication transmission between us and the Universe. The truth is, most of us have very little or no awareness that this communication is happening.
Yet, our beliefs, thought patterns, habits, emotional patterns and intentions all send out signals to the Universe regarding what we want, don’t want, need and don’t need in our lives. They express what we are ready to take on and what we have not yet learned ways to handle. We then receive experiences that match the frequency we are sending out.
Often when we are not living the life we want to live or our life is filled with obstacles or lack, we begin to blame outside forces, such as another person or just “bad luck”. We can tend to fall into believing we are a victim of the Universe, rather than an active participant in what we ask for and receive. This then becomes another belief system that influences the signal that your energy sends out. That belief will be reinforced in your experiences until you decide to question its validity.
Many spiritual leaders, including Jesus, have taught us that we are co-creators with the Universe by way of sending out signals that then bring in what we need. “Ask and you shall receive,” is an example. There is also much mention of doubt being a stumbling block and belief, or faith, being the path to creating what you desire. This speaks to a shift in your understanding of how the energy system works within the Universe and how your thoughts, beliefs, intentions and emotions affect it.
If you wish to create a better awareness of this process, one of the first things to do is to simply ask that the blocks that you have to seeing and understanding the process be dissolved or removed. Set an intention for this every day and pray or meditate with this intention as your specific focus for a few minutes. This is very important, because we will not see the process at work until the beliefs that block it from our sight are gone. Don’t try to force the process, simply allow it to happen.
Next, you can begin setting intentions for manifestations. You can start very small, if you like, or go much bigger. I feel that it helps to set an intention for a larger manifestation and then “practice” every day with small ones to build your confidence. Focus on the way you wish to feel, rather than on the precise material path you believe you will take to get to that feeling. Envision yourself in that setting. See what’s around you as you feel this desired emotion. Don’t ask for things you don’t really want!
Keep in mind that small manifestations don’t take as long to show up as very large ones. A large manifestation, such as a new business, will require energy to shift and reshape in the material realm on many levels and various areas in order to manifest. And it will likely also require shifts in your thinking and your beliefs, and perhaps a few lessons that you need in order to be able to have the knowledge to handle the request. A smaller manifestation, such as seeing a particular bird or a butterfly, is something that can happen fairly quickly. As you practice, you may find these small things happen almost immediately after your request.
Always be open to how the manifestation will be given to you by the Universe. You can’t see the whole picture, so allow the Universe to do the work from a higher perspective, without insisting that it go your way. You may only create new blocks by being willful about the precise way it manifests.
Express gratitude in advance, and each time you notice something falling into place as the manifestation begins coming into view. Gratitude sends out a loving energy that creates an open channel for more to be received. A simple way to open a channel for abundance to flow using gratitude is through blessing your money and your bills. Before paying your bills, send Reiki to them, being grateful for whoever supplied you with that service and for the money you have to pay for it. Send Reiki blessings to whoever you received the money from as well, and ask that all that the money touches receive a blessing, creating a lovely ripple effect.
