The difference between manifesting something “big” and manifesting something “small” is only the belief in a difference between the two. Just a friendly reminder.

You know, a lot of quotes go around that carry the sentiment of “if things don’t go your way it wasn’t meant to be” or “God has something better in store for you” or the like. And I totally get it—I realize that these quotes bring relief from disappointment and heartbreak for many, and that’s a very good thing. But at this point in our Awareness aren’t we ready for the Truth? Because the Truth is that You are God, and God wants what You want because there is no separation.
And that desire you had that wasn’t fulfilled? Well, there are infinite versions of reality, many in which that desire was and is actualized, so to say that “it wasn’t good for you” doesn’t make sense, because for every version of reality in which it wasn’t good for you there are those in which it was—and still is—very, very good for you. How can you tell if something’s good for you? If the thought of having it feels good. Period.
The bottom line is that we can experience precisely what we want in physical reality. Any idea that is available to us in the thought plane is equally available in physical reality. Because physical reality is nothing more than an extension of our own Consciousness, a reflection of those ideas filtered through our own individual belief systems. Every last thing we experience in physical reality is *only* a product of our own individual focus as filtered through our own individual belief systems.
So what does that mean in relationship to unfulfilled desires? Well, that means that the *only* possible reason a desire goes unfulfilled is because we and we alone have limiting beliefs that are preventing that experience. And the GREAT news is we have the ability to change our beliefs so that we CAN experience EXACTLY what we prefer.
I promise you with every fiber of my Being that this is True. And I work every day to release my own limiting beliefs because I Know this is True, and beyond the “stuff” I desire, I want nothing more in Life than to Live my Freedom and to Be my Truth…and to share it with others on occasion.
Long story short: There is a fine line between making peace with what-is and settling for less than you have every right and ability to experience in Life. The next time physical reality shows you the absence of something you really, really desire, recognize that it is not because the desire was unworthy of being fulfilled because no desire of the heart is unworthy of being fulfilled (and you know if it’s a desire of the heart if the thought of having it feels good. Period.); understand that when you are experiencing the absence of your desire, physical reality is only telling you that you have one or more limiting beliefs standing in the way of you having the desire. Period.
And from that point, you have the option of finding and releasing the limiting belief(s) so that you may fulfill your desire—or not. It’s entirely up to you. It’s not that you *have* to do anything about it, but please Know that you do have a choice, and Know that the choice of whether or not to fulfill that desire is Yours and Yours alone to make. Always. Every single time.

Time and Manifestation
I’ve been doing a lot of Soul searching regarding the topic of time, especially as it pertains to manifestation, and here is what I’ve concluded (and I use that term loosely knowing that my Awareness/Understanding is constantly and eternally expanding):
With the date of the foreclosure auction on my house ever drawing nearer, it’s understandable that I would feel an amount of pressure to line up with the money I desire to save my house before it’s “too late.”
But the thing I’ve realized is that time is truly irrelevant in regard to manifesting/lining up with/expressing our desires in the way we prefer. Process is an illusion and everything is now. I’ve given up the idea of declaring “I desire to have this money (or whatever I’m desiring) by such and such date,” because the simple fact of the matter is that we experience the manifestation of our desires (in the way we prefer) the SECOND our beliefs allow us to; or another way to put it is when we offer a frequency that matches the frequency of the version of reality in which we have the desire (which will naturally be offered when our beliefs allow us to offer it LOL).
How long it takes before your beliefs support the having of your desire is going to depend on several factors; it’s going to be different for everybody and different for each desire. For example, we desire air to breathe, right, because we believe we need it to survive (and yes, that, too is only a belief)? Well, most of us believe we have unlimited air to breathe, so we experience instant and continual manifestation of air to breathe. There is no resistance, no limiting beliefs preventing us from experiencing the having of the desire, so there is no waiting or process of “lining up.”
Now, let’s say you desire a million dollars (I know that many of you have no problem lining up with your infinite abundance, but hey, I figure I might as well use an example that I can relate to). How does that idea feel different than the idea of desiring air to breathe? What kinds of limiting ideas come to mind as you ponder the having of one million dollars right now? Exactly.
You could say that the time it takes to express an idea (manifest it) in the way you prefer is the time it takes to release the limiting beliefs that prevent you from doing so. If you didn’t have limiting beliefs around the idea, you would experience instant manifestation (unless part of your desire was to experience process). It really is so simple, isn’t it?
A couple of nice manifestations I lined myself up with:
1. Even though I know that my reality is shaped by my vibration, regardless of what’s happening in the world “out there” and so have VERY little interest in politics, I still had a preference in terms of who became president and I’m happy to report that I aligned with my preference in this matter!
2. The issues I was facing with the IRS that I wrote about last week have been resolved! And much quicker, easier, and less invasively than I was told (by one of their reps) it was going to be! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I didn’t expect to write about my journey again so soon, because I’ve just been taking an easy and relaxed approach to this one. Plus, how many ways can you say “today I’m taking an easy and relaxed approach to manifesting two million dollars?”
Anyhoo, I decided to write today anyway, because I experienced a huge shift that I’m so excited to share with you all. And wouldn’t you know it, I have the IRS drama I wrote about yesterday to thank for it!
I don’t want to say that I’ve backed myself into a corner, because that’s not the energy I feel around this situation. But with the tax bill and other bills, repairs, etc. mounted up, it’s gotten to a point that there’s just no physical action way I can acquire enough money within the time I need it to take care of everything, at least not one that I’m aware of and/or am able to do. But, of course, I’m certainly open to inspiration and if that action idea comes to me I’m more than willing to take it!
In the meantime, and in light of the situation at hand, I came to the conclusion that I just have no other choice at this point but to allow this money into my life once and for all.
And I don’t mean by forcing my vibration into submission, because I know all too well that that just doesn’t work. What I mean is absolutely owning my Truths, that there is always a cooperative component to my desire, that there is no manifestation too “unrealistic,” no amount of money too large or out of reach, and that the only, only, ONLY reason I do not see this money yet is because I am not a vibrational match to having it—which means I don’t yet fully accept it as done.
But, thanks to my convo with one of the nice people at the IRS office (I mean that, seriously—with all the fear we are taught to have of this agency they have been nothing but kind and as accommodating as they possibly can be throughout this entire journey, and I’m truly grateful for that), I finally stepped up to the plate and shifted from mostly believing that the money is coming to accepting that it is already mine.
I can literally, physically feel that I’ve shifted to a new version of me, and I have to say it feels pretty freakin’ fantastic!!!
And here’s more proof: Today I was doing some research to refresh my memory on the current gift tax laws, and I re-learned that the current lifetime maximum tax free gift(s) one can give is in the neighborhood of $5 million dollars.
But unless congress acts fast, that maximum is going to be dropped to $1 million next year, and I found myself imagining how many wealthy people would be scrambling to use up some or all of their gift allotment this year. And then I thought how many of those people might not have close relatives or friends to offer their gifts to, and how they could very easily and synchronistically happen across my blog, find resonance with me and what I’m doing here, learn that I’m desiring to attract millions of dollars in gifts, one thing leads to another and suddenly I’m a very, VERRRY wealthy woman!!!
And then I briefly had to consider if I need to change the amount I’m focusing on, but I decided to keep it at two million for now, because a) I think there’s something to be said about staying focused on one goal rather than scattering one’s energy, and b) there’s no reason I can’t align with more once I get this first chunk, and c) even if the rest of my millions come after the law changes, I can just simply line up with enough to cover the *ahem* 55% gift tax beyond the one million dollars I’ll be able to give tax free.
The reason I’m even concerned with this at all is because it’s important for me to not only line up with the ease and comfort of having my own wealth, but to have enough to be able to share with my loved ones. I mean, I just can’t see myself enjoying my GIGANTIC home, luxurious vacations, and leisurely lifestyle while my parents are working themselves to death (literally) to scrape enough together for retirement, or while my brother and his wife struggle to send their girls to college when the time comes. Not to mention plenty of other extended family members and friends who could use some financial relief in their lives.
It just ain’t gonna happen.
And while I know their abundance can come to them in other ways, I figure my way, the way of understanding the Laws of the Universe and using that knowledge to line up with what I desire, is much easier and probably faster (and even more likely), so when I think of attracting my own abundance it just comes to mind as a sort of package deal. But I’m cool with and totally open to whatever works and whatever happens first.
So back to the shift: After I read about this and figured out how much extra I’d need to manifest to account for the gift tax and still give (and have) enough for me and my immediate family to be set for life (and others to have a considerable financial boost), I found myself automatically moving to read more about estate planning and taxation, and before I knew it I was researching and comparing Romney and Obama’s tax plans.
And then I realized, for the first time EVER, I’m thinking like a freakin’ rich person!!!!
God that was such an awesome realization!!! And such an out of character thing for (old) me to do, especially the last part, as quite honestly I’ve had no interest in this election (and little to none in any other) up until that moment.
Woo-hoo!!! One percent, here I come!!! LOL
You know, I joke about desiring to be in the one percent, and in a way that’s true, but the reality is there is no one percent. And the travesty of it all is that the ones that are creating and perpetuating that illusion are the ones that feel they are victims of it.
But that’s why I share my personal journey here; I figure as I align with my own desires I can help people understand that nothing is out of our reach, if we only believe that we can have it. And before we know it, the 1% will become the 100%, and physical reality will become a whole different ball game.
And I’m sooo ready to play!!!
As always, thanks for co-creating this magical, marvelous adventure with me, I Love you all sooooo much!!!
Since I started this journey I’ve been doing really good about ignoring what-is and reminding myself of my Truths around money: That there are no limitations in terms of how or how much money I can receive or how soon I can receive it; that this is a vibrational journey, not an action journey; that there is always, always, always a cooperative component to every desire, and so on.
And as a result I have been seeing some small increases in the money I’m earning at my job, and I also received a surprise $200 that I wrote about last week. So these Truths (beliefs) are starting to be reflected in my physical reality, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about that.
However, today I got some disturbing news about the installment agreement for my back taxes that I had defaulted on, as well as the amount I owe for 2011, and admittedly I temporarily allowed this news to suck me out of the Vortex.
But you know what’s so cool? Even as part of my mind was going into total panic mode, that feeling/thought process didn’t consume me. Because even as negative thoughts were racing around in my head about what is going to happen as a result of this situation, I kept hearing “Phoenix San Diego” ‘playing’ in the background.
And that made me laugh. And that gave me a little relief. And from there I was able to say to myself, “No, I don’t want to go back to Phoenix at this point, I’m too close to San Diego.”
And then I re-reminded myself of those aforementioned Truths about the nature of reality, and in a very short time I was able to soothe myself back into the Vortex. And it feels so good to be back!
Not only that, but I even feel a little excited about this seeming obstacle, because some other Truths I hold include that I’m always taken care of and things always, always, always work out for me; so rather than looking at this situation as a measure of the distance I am from my desire to have the money, I feel like it’s a sign of just how close I am to having it.
And I love that I am able to genuinely feel this way about it, not only because it feels better than worrying, but because it’s a huge shift in my perspective from even just a short while ago. And as we know, physical reality is just a reflection (or extension) of our perspective, and once the perspective changes, the reflection has to as well.
So I’m looking forward to seeing continued improvements in that reflection. In the meantime, I’m continuing to focus on being easy about it all, going general as needed, and allowing the law of attraction to work for me. Because it does anyway, so I might as well use it to experience what I prefer.
Makes sense, right?
Thanks for co-creating this exciting journey with me and for just being awesome in general.
I Love and appreciate you all immensely. ♥
RESULTS! OK So I’ve been intending and “Wouldn’t it be nice”-ing this for a little while, and wouldn’t you know it, I went to my local grocery store to discover that they now carry Daiya, the God of vegan cheese!!!
I have to say that even though I’d still prefer a big natural food store like Whole Foods in my local area for the variety and luxury of it all, I’m so appreciative of Publix and their efforts in keeping the main vegan/organic essentials stocked for me. Yes! Just for me!
And I appreciate Daiya for making it that much easier to be vegan!
And I appreciate me for desiring, believing, and after just a tiny bit of allowing, lining up with what I prefer. Yaaaay!
There’s not much change to report in my outer world, but I’m enjoying my inner world so much right now I really don’t mind that.
I love experiencing evidence that I’ve shifted in the way of my thoughts and feelings, especially in response to physical reality. For example, some time ago I saw an article about a guy who asked for one million dollars via Youtube and his website, and someone gave the money to him—or so I thought. I thought it was a fun piece of evidence that you get any and everything you ask for, so last night I went looking for articles about him and discovered that the whole thing was a hoax, he never really received the money.
But instead of old response of doubting my own desire (and the manifestation of it) and feeling hopeless and defeated, my instant mental response was “What an idiot, if he would’ve held out and believed he would’ve received that money.”
I love that! I especially love that it was an automatic response, rather than something that I had to talk myself into. Progress!!!
The other area in which I’m noticing a huge improvement is the feeling of pressure and urgency attached to, well, just about everything—every time I think of a goal, whether it pertains to money or not, I feel like I’m in a race against time to accomplish it, which is just not a very good feeling, not to mention very counterproductive.
But lately I’ve been much more relaxed around the projects that are in the works and find myself just going with the flow, doing the best I can, and trusting that that’s enough. And although some money goals do have a time limit (such as bills due or the fridge dying on me), I even feel greater ease around those; my new catch phrase is, “they’ll wait for me,” and it’s turning out to be true statement.
Everything always works out for me, and I’m so thankful that I’m finally at a point in my journey where I believe that.
I feel like the intensive EFT work I did the past couple of months to release limiting beliefs has paid off, which is particularly wonderful because, although I love the relief I get from EFT, there are many, many other ways I prefer spending my time than tapping like a mad woman. LOL
Now I’m at a place where whenever I think of my two million dollars, I get excited about having it like always, but it’s a purer easier excitement—no pressure, no worries about how or when, just total confidence that if I believe I will receive in the perfect way and at the perfect time.
So I’m loving my inner world right now, and I’m also loving that any time now that inner confidence and Knowing is going to be reflected in my outer world.
I’m also loving you, my Soul Family, and appreciate the abundance of Love, support, inspiration, and laughter that I receive from all of you. So thank you for that, truly. ♥
Bashar teaches that in order to line up with our desires, we need to “act as if” we already have them. But how many of us really do that, at least consistently enough to experience our desires in a timely fashion?
Personally, I find it challenging to act as if I’m the “having” version of me, especially when it comes to money…especially when that money is urgently “needed” (I know, need is such an ugly word), so I came up with a very simple exercise to help remind myself of the difference between the having and not-having versions of me, and to help me identify which version of myself I’m “acting as if” in any given moment.
If you find that you’re still not seeing the results you’re trying to manifest (or just want to manifest them more quickly), this exercise may benefit you as well. I’ll give an example using my own situation, but it works the same for absolutely anything you are desiring to experience.
EXERCISE: Take out a sheet of paper (or open a document) and make two columns. Title the left-side column “Not Having Version,” and the right-side column “Having Version.”
Now in the not-having column, list all the qualities of that version of yourself. What are your thoughts? What are your beliefs? What are your feelings? What are your actions?
If you are doing this exercise at all, then you are probably the not-having version of yourself right now, so it should be pretty easy to fill up this side of the page.
After you’ve completed the not-having side, do the same for the having side. Since you are likely not the having version of yourself right now, you may need to spend a little time conjuring the feelings, thoughts, actions, and beliefs of this version of yourself. But the good news is, the more time you spend imagining what the having version of yourself is like, the more you are “acting as if” you are this version (there is no difference between imagining and being in terms of attraction).
I have a strong desire to receive $3,000 easily and effortlessly, and to have it now and use it any way I choose.
Here is the not-having version of myself:
NOT-HAVING $3,000 TODAY
-Pressure to work more than I want to
-Defeat knowing I don’t have enough hours in the day to make that amount by the time it’s needed
-Trying to become the $3,000 Having version of me
-Scared of not having enough to cover everything
-Angry with myself for not being the Having version
-Disappointed in not having what I need
-Doubt/Disbelief that I can have the money when and how I prefer
As you can see, the not-having version of me spends a whole lot of time thinking about and feeling the not having.
Now, here is my having version:
HAVING $3,000 TODAY
-Ready for anything!
-In Love with life!
-Writing, playing, cleaning, organizing, listening to music, and doing anything else I want, when I want!
-Total belief I can have the money when and how I want it (because I already have it)
I felt a shift within myself just writing the words that describe the having version of me, and I think it also illustrates the point that Abraham has made time and time again that manifestation really is about the feeling, because the feeling is the main difference between the having and not-having versions.
Give this a try yourself and see if it helps you stay in having mode more of the time, so that you can experience what you prefer that much more quickly and easily.
One last thought: If you are still having difficulty acting as if you have what you prefer even after identifying the qualities of that version of yourself, I recommend using EFT or some other modality to release the list items in the not-having column. It is also important to note that belief is the foundation for any experience, meaning if you don’t believe you can or should have your desire, then you will never allow yourself to experience it, no matter how much you “act as if.”
So, before you even get into the acting as if part of this equation, you may want to double check with yourself to ensure that you actually believe you can and should have what you are desiring. If that checks out, then just remain in having mode as often as possible and you’ll see your desire manifest in no time. If not, then go back to the EFT or other tool of choice to release those limiting beliefs and convince yourself that you can and deserve to have whatever you want (and that you already do have it).
I’ve just had yet another big a-ha moment that has helped me shift my belief in the ability to manifest exactly what I prefer to yet another deeper state of Knowing, and of course I couldn’t wait to share this revelation with all of you.
In my last article about thought manifestation, I talked about how simple the process of moving an idea from thought, to thoughtform, to manifestation in physical form really is, and that an idea can be likened to water in its various states of manifestation in that whether water exists as a solid, liquid, or vapor, it is equally real and existent in any one of those states. I made a handy-dandy info-graphic to illustrate that fact:
This comparison helped deepen my belief in the concept that every single thing we can imagine as an idea can be actualized in physical reality because it is already as real as it’s ever going to be in its thought state, just like water is as real in its vapor state as it is in its solid form as ice.
Not only that, but it also helped me realize that all ideas are equally real and equally able to appear in physical form, so in the example that I used of my own desire to “earn” a living receiving blog donations as opposed to doing so working at a traditional job, I came to the understanding that there is no difference in terms of either idea manifesting in physical form, and that the only deciding factor as to which would be my reality is my belief—the driving force behind any manifestation.
Although this analogy was extremely useful in helping me believe that I really can create any reality I desire—and I even received my very first blog donation after posting that article, which was an absolute thrill—I still found myself with some resistance around how quickly those desires can be actualized.
In fact, the idea of time, or timing, has been somewhat of a point of contention for me, considering I’ve been lining up with a fair amount of financial contrast these past few years and as the bills come due each month, and then become late, and then things like utilities and car insurance become candidates for disconnection and cancellation, well, let’s just say that I’ve created quite a bit of excitement for myself, albeit not the kind of excitement that I particularly prefer…much less desire more of moving into this next month.
So I continue with my daily EFT sessions, tapping on these issues so that I may be free of them once and for all and live the joyful, easy, abundant, and fun(!) life that I KNOW I came here to experience.
As I revisited the money issue tonight, I recognized that my shifting from the other night has pretty much “stuck” as far as the belief that all ideas, whether the idea is a lot of money or just a little (castle or a button, as they say) are equally and easily manifestable is concerned. I feel confident now that I can receive as much or as little as I desire, it’s all the same in terms of the process and causal factors that bring all ideas into physical form (beliefs).
And I’m also pretty solid in my belief that all cooperative components exist as part of the original idea, sort of like a package deal. In other words, and again using my situation as an example, the people that are willing and capable of giving me thousands of dollars already exist as part of the idea of me having thousands of dollars, just as those who are not willing to give me anything are tied into the idea-bundle of me not having the money I desire.
All the details of every idea are always included in the package and they’re all here, right now; and which idea-bundle that ends up being experienced as physical reality once again always (and only) depends on which is fueled with enough belief to cause it to move from its vapor to liquid to solid physical form (metaphorically speaking).
But, even knowing all this, I still found myself worrying about whether I would receive the amount of money I desire soon enough to avoid those pesky disconnections and cancellations I was talking about a moment ago. So, naturally, I started tapping on that. And not long into the session, I realized that timing is—are you ready for this?—just another cooperative component included in the all-inclusive package deal of the overall idea!!!
Oh, wow, when this occurred to me I felt a HUGE wave of relief and even more confidence in my ability to manifest what I need when I need it. Because I am such a visual learner, I made another info-graphic to help illustrate this point:
When you consider that having the money desired (or any desire) AND having the willing person(s) to give it to you AND having it by a certain time is all ONE idea-bundle, well then there’s just no question of whether or not it can come OR can come in time, is there? Because it’s all ONE freakin’ thing!!! No variables!!! No reason for doubt or concern!!!
Although this should’ve been obvious after I realized that all cooperative components come bundled in the idea package, I had not previously been looking at time (or timing) as one of those cooperative components included in the deal; I was looking at it as an outside variable and as such created a whole bunch of uncertainty, worry, and doubt for myself as a result.
But of course, there are no outside factors and there are no variables (unless you believe in them). The only causal factor, and I don’t mind being redundant here because I don’t think it can be stressed enough, is our beliefs. Period. And so, if we say we want such and such at a certain time or within a certain amount of time and believe that we can have it as such, then we can. Period. There are just absolutely no limitations as to what we can experience for ourselves. None!
And I love Knowing and feeling the freedom of that more than words could ever express.
Well, once again I have to thank you, my precious Law of Attraction/Soul Family for allowing me to share with you today, and I do hope that the next time you find yourself concerned over manifesting something within a certain amount of time this information will provide you with some relief and the absolute confidence that you really can have anything you desire and within any time frame you choose, because everything exists, ALL cooperative components included, right here and right now. It’s done!
