Change The Way You Ask For Things

May 21, 2011

Following on from my post about Mind Over Matter and the processes necessary to manifest what you want, I’ve also discovered that the times that I pleasantly reflected on having something in a “wouldn’t it be nice/how nice it would be if I had…” kind of way, I manifested those things much quicker than the things I found myself wanting.

When you’re thinking about “I really need this!, or I really wish I had that right now!, or I want this so badly!”, you’re vibrating from a place of stress and a deeper connection to a “lack mentality”. Even though you’re thinking about what you want, you’re thinking about it in terms of you not having it and the stress its causing you to not have it.

When we think like that, we vibrate at a different level and not the kind of level that helps bring things into your life faster.

As the saying goes: “Ships come in on calm waters”.

So you know when you say “I’m waiting for my ship to come in”, well, it’s not going to come if you’re stressing about it not coming yet, and by stressing you’re “causing rough waters”.

You have to be calm and trust that it will come when the time is right.

I recently got gifted a brand new 27″ iMac computer, not because I was constantly thinking about how much I need one in my life but I like to think because when I saw one, I thought about how nice it would be to have one, how much easier my design, photography and blogging work would be on a big screen (I was using a Macbook laptop at the time), I imagined how nice it would look along with my other Apple products and then put it on my Amazon wishlist as a “wouldn’t it be nice if someone got it for me” sort of thing. Then I forgot all about it, only remembering how nice it would be to have one whenever I saw pictures of one.

So I like to believe that I manifested this iMac because I was thinking pleasant thoughts about it in my life, I felt good when I thought about it, I smiled, it was a nice feeling, then I forgot about it, instead of obsessing over it and changing my feel-good vibration to one of stress and worry.

So in future, when you want something in your life, change the way you ask for it from “I want that” to “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” and do a lot of feel-good imaging it in your reality, then forget about it, trusting that it will come when the time is right.

Using your brain to create your reality takes time and practice. With everything, its baby steps but go ahead and try it.
