How to Amp Up Belief
We know the two keys to successful manifesting are desire and belief. When these two elements are present, you’re home free to getting what you want!
For most of us, desire comes pretty easily and it’s our belief that could usually use some work.
Doubt is kryptonite to miracles and dreams come true. Belief, on the other hand, doesn’t just grease the wheels, it requires things to happen!
Which is why clients know that believing is key to receiving, and thus often wonder how to best believe that what they want will happen?
Because it’s a common question, I thought this was a good topic for our consideration.
Here are four of my favorite ways to amp up belief (and I’d love to hear yours next):
1. I’m a big fan of Abraham’s Amp It Up exercise where you write down what you want on the top of a sheet of paper, then underneath that list the reasons why you want it, and then on the backside write the reasons why you believe you can have it.
Abe says it doesn’t matter how many reasons you list, but you’re done once you start stretching to come up with another reason. That exercise puts a nice spotlight on both desire and belief, which makes it a powerful manifesting tool.
But there are other effective ways for amping up belief as well.
2. One is to keep a running tally of successful creations – an accounting where you track things purposefully manifested. Writing down past “wins” is a great way to start the list, then adding even “little” things like rock star parking and green lights in traffic and fabulous waiters (you all practice that one, too, right?) – all those things go on the list as well.
We know that wherever our focus goes, more of the same follows, so using this tally method to deliberately get our attention on successful manifestations is an empowering habit. (Shoot, even thinking of others’ stories is uplifting, isn’t it?!)
3. One of the easiest ways to increase belief is to tap into a powerful reminder, like The Intention Experiment or Quantum Success or The Answer or Infinite Possibilities or I know for many The Secret works, and for others plugging into a like-minded community like this one helps.
Surrounding ourselves with reinforcing material about how the world really works helps to undo old teachings about the necessity of working hard or taking massive action to succeed.
4. Another method I ask clients to play with when they’re not feeling their manifesting muscle is “practice projects.”
A practice project is where you choose a unique thing or experience to manifest (something you don’t have any “charge” on), then just hold it in mind briefly once or twice a day for a couple of days in a row – and then simply keep an easy eye out for its appearance.
(No figuring out “how” or worrying if it will or being attached to what/where/when. Just nice simple holding pleasant thoughts of little things that would be pleasant to see unfold, and then let the Universe bring it to your feet.)
Once you do a couple of those in a row, you not only start to properly acknowledge your manifesting skills, but you also have a nice template of how you best get the job done.
In fact, last week I joined a client in a practice project of her choosing – $50 from out of the blue. I added that my $50 would be a “pleasant surprise.”
We spent maybe 25 seconds each imagining a $50 surprise windfall before we wrapped up our call.
Three days later I wrote my client to admit that I hadn’t remembered to do our homework of holding it in mind over the following days. But before I sent the note, I realized Universe had already delivered it!
It turns out the day after we initially chose our practice project of 50 pleasant surprise dollars, a check arrived from another client who had inadvertently paid $250 for our one time session, rather than my real rate of $200. I wondered if she paid extra because we’d gone over time, or if there was a misunderstanding about the fee. Regardless, I wrote to tell her I owed her $50.
Her email back cleared things up:
“HA! Are you having an issue accepting a tip? I see why the universe had me send you one!
🙂 Love Ya!”
I’m not positive, but I think that’s the first time that ever happened. (PS – thanks for the tip, my friend!)
Which is my proof how easy it is to miss the delivery on a practice project! (Don’t let this happen to you. lol)
My point being that there are lots of easy ways for us to amp up our belief, and when we do, magic happens.
Your turn: what are ways you’ve found effective for increasing your belief about having what you want?
