Smokin’ Hot Manifesting via Identify Shifting
“You do not attract what you want. You attract what you are.”
That’s what Wayne Dyer shared in an interview where he said the law of attraction has been misstated.
He’s saying that it’s not about what we desire, it’s about what we vibrate.
We deliberate creators already know that there can be a difference in what we want versus what we’re signaling.
(Example: someone wants to be healthy and fit, but is focused on disease and discomfort. Big gap.)
And we know we have to close that gap in order to create what we want.
One way to close that gap was the subject of a GVU call last week: how to shift our identity.
Because at the core of our vibration is how we see ourselves. That is, who we know ourselves to be. (What our self-identity is.)
When I think of myself as someone who isn’t good with money, I’ll inevitably manifest a bad experience with money. Or when I think of myself as someone is good at getting what she wants, more often than not that’s what happens.
So ‘who you are being’ is worth paying attention to – and learning to manage – since it’s where our manifestations are sourced.
We talked about different ways to shift our identity on the call, and I wanted to share one of those here.
A fun way to shift who you’re being is to try on a new identity using a label you create that matches your desire.
For example, when I was feeling a bit frumpy and unattractive recently, I gave myself a new “Smokin’ Hot Girl” identity.
I tried it on sort of like you would an outfit – mentally becoming a “smokin’ hot girl.” I wore this identity throughout the day, asking myself “what does a smokin’ hot girl do next?”
It turns out smokin’ hot girl does some things different than I do, including what she wears, what she eats for breakfast, and when she likes to take her showers.
But it isn’t even the new actions that make the difference - it’s the energy we’re BEING that changes things. So even if I didn’t do anything different, the vibration has changed – and that’s what matters.
I didn’t have to consciously be ‘smokin’ hot girl’ for more than a day before I started to feel it in my bones – and see it in the mirror.
That identity shift was so much fun that I created another one to play with for business success: Rockin’ Business Owner.
It so happens that when I turn on my rockin’ business owner identity, we spend a lot less time on emails and facebook. We have a laser sharp focus that easily knows and maintains our highest priority. (It was a cool thing to experience!)
One of our GVU members brought this point home (about the importance of identity) when she quoted Jim Rohn as saying if you’re not a millionaire when you win the lottery, you better become one fast. (If you want to keep your millions.)
I know that becoming someone that doesn’t seem ‘real’ or ‘true’ yet is kind of tricky. But if deliberate creation was easy everyone would be doing it. (tee hee)
You’re officially invited to play with identity shifting for bullseye manifesting with whatever you’ve been wanting to create. Find the label that nails it, and then try it on a couple times throughout your day and week and see what shifts.
(If you have trouble coming up with your new label or identity, Goddess Jacqui is a pro at this work and is ridiculously affordable.)
In the meantime, I’d love to hear from those of you with experience in identify shifting … how you did it, what came from it, what tips you have. Thanks in advance for sharing!
