The “As-If” Approach to Authentic Manifesting
Anyone in the Spiritual Community has most likely heard the term, “ascension” a time or two. It is apparently the universal (no pun intended) term for the overall process that humanity is undergoing via this massive wave or shift in consciousness. But what never felt quite right to me with this was the feeling that I think so many of us can relate to; not feeling good enough right now, right here.
And ascension literally encourages a climb, a rise. And while it reflects the raising of one’s frequency that occurs naturally the more wisdom that one acquires and thus also amplitude one can hold when you are attempting to already reach for a goal, it seems to only add to the pressure, and I honestly think that subconsciously holds so many of us back before we even get started.
I like to think of personal growth as more of a linear progression. A space that already exists that you simply step into. This is quite similar to how I approach manifesting in that I use the visualization techniques of living “as-if” you already have that which you desire. In this case, it’s the same thing, but rather instead of this being a calling on the Universe, this is could be considered an answer to a calling from the Universe.
You can do this in a number of ways such as paying attention to all of those synchronicities appearing in your life as symbols and omens and little signs pointing the way to some pretty awesome stuff trying to make it’s way to you.
So often we curse the Universe, Source, God…(whichever label is most comfortable for you) for not delivering our wishes, answering our prayers…etc. but if we really step back and think about it, we are always given exactly what we BELEIVE. We can put out that we want this or that, but if we have a limited belief on what this or that looks like or are very limited on how we will allow it to come to us, then we are literally closing off ways for the Universe to deliver it to us.
It would be like placing an order and then calling UPS and being like, “Yeah I know I ordered it, but I’ll only accept it from a man named Brad and he’s gotta bring it on a Tuesday at 3:47 pm wrapped in an orange bow or else forget it.” It makes it nearly impossible to meet your demands. So, manifesting can ONLY work when we put it out there, let it go lovingly and excitedly, and trust it will come back on the best way, at the best time, and in the best form for our highest good.
So, rather than having all of the lag, pressure, and oh-so-lovely self-loathing, guilt, etc. that often accompanies those times you either don’t meet your milestones, catch yourself procrastinating, encounter anxiety or depression, or manifest another pain/illness that distracts you from your purpose path, etc. we can get out of feeling like it’s always an uphill climb and so much work and begin to just realize that there’s nothing to do per se, but there’s simply so much to remember and realize.
And this is stepping into what I call your authentic integrity. Two more hot words in this community that have very key meanings and when coined together, I feel that it bring a new facet to what it means to be true to yourself. When most of us think of integrity, we usually consider what it is that people do for others that would determine them virtuous or not. But this also includes that which we do for ourselves because one of the most precious lessons I’ve ever learned is that if you never learn to show up for yourself, love yourself, and take care of yourself, you simply cannot be fully present in that way for anyone else. At least not authentically.
