What Everyone Overlooks from My Best Manifestations
Maybe you’ve heard some of my favorite personal manifesting stories …
Like the time I scripted my foster dog’s perfect home in two days (after three months of begging God to please-let-someone-take-this-freakin-dog).
And then the time I journaled my way into a big sale within hours of writing about it as if it were a done deal. (After being told I was on the verge of being fired for non-performance.)
Stories like that have inspired some fellow creators to start their own scripting practice or to begin their own pray rain journal.
And sometimes they get great results!
Sometimes they don’t.
Here’s why, and how you can improve your own manifesting results as well …
First of all, it isn’t just the scripting or the journaling.
That’s a key component, no doubt. A big part of getting aligned. But the success didn’t end or even start there.
The reason my experiences were so immediate and dramatic is because of two other factors that a lot of manifestors don’t notice:
I was in a very dark place on both of those occasions. With the foster dog, I’d just had my very first mini-nervous breakdown. And with the sale at work, I’d just come out of a meeting where they basically said I was out of a job within two weeks if I didn’t turn my numbers around.
Why is that part so important?
Contrast is a huge setup for success, when you know how to give yourself the gift of relief.
The two analogies I use to explain the power of contrast are how when you’re in a dark room with the door closed, just cracking that door a little bit lets in enough light to make a big difference. When the door’s already halfway open, opening it another crack doesn’t feel much different. But when you’re in the dark (I mean the dark-dark), that crack of light is a game-changer!
The other analogy is like pulling back on the rubber band: if you don’t pull back very far, it doesn’t fly very far. But when you pull it back as far as it’ll go without breaking, that thing could travel the football field when you release that tension!
And tension was definitely part of my experience in both those situations!
Contrast. It fuels dramatic change.
If you don’t have a lot of contrast flowing in your own situation – congratulations! We don’t have to suffer in order to win big.
But if you are miserable, put it to work for you!
Second, vibrational relief.
Call it inspired action. Call it doing what feels good. However you describe it, doing what feels better is an essential part of letting in what you’ve ordered up from Universe.
I didn’t just script about the foster dog adoption and then keep slogging away at the same old actions to make it happen …
I went to bed. Because I had given up on trying to make life work!
I didn’t journal about the miraculous sale and then get back on the phone to make the same old cold calls that hadn’t been working for four months …
I went goofing off on a long lunch (because that’s the answer I got when I asked what sounded good next). On my way back was when my prospective client found me in the elevator.
The point being I became a cooperative component, as Abe would say, by tending to my vibe. That just means following inner guidance about what feels best next. Or as Bashar would say, “following your highest excitement.”
So for me, it wasn’t just journaling one page or scripting one session.
It was also being willing to follow the inner nudge about next steps. The nudge that doesn’t usually agree with what your gremlins (aka inner critic) thinks you should be doing.
Unhappy journeys don’t have happy endings. Letting go of struggle is a key part to successful manifestations!
While I don’t recommend anyone experience high stress in order to have a better manifestation, I certainly suggest you combine your manifesting process (whether that’s visualizing or acting as if or journaling or scripting or whatever) with some element of relief. Aka feeling better. Aka taking inspired action. Aka releasing resistance.
It just may be the missing ingredient to your next magical success.
