How To Done Deal It

Sometimes successfully manifesting what we want calls for distraction. Or letting go.

Sometimes it’s best to act as if. Or appreciate what is.

And you know I’m a huge fan of praying rain.

What if you could roll all of those alignment practices into one?

That’s sort of how I think about the manifesting process of Done Dealing It.

That’s where you treat your desire like it already happened. So you can move on to other things, because this one is complete.

It combines the power of praying rain, letting go, distraction, appreciation, and acting as if. Cool huh?

Here’s a small elaboration on what it means to Done Deal It:

In your mind, just consider it done. Maybe even do a little mental happy dance that that particular dream came true, and don’t focus on it any more. Because you already nailed it.

Until your mind goes back to it, and then just remind yourself you already got what you wanted and go about your business. Done deal it.

You want to author a best seller? Or solve a health crisis? Sell a home, or buy a dream one?

Treating it like it’s a done deal may be your best ticket to alignment.

Because think about the signal Universe gets from you when you treat this thing like it’s done – it’s gonna hustle to make you right!

(Since that’s all Universe ever does – hustle to make us right no matter what we think.)
When you done deal it, you’re no longer wanting it, or trying to figure it out, and you’re certainly not fretting about it. Because it’s already done.

The best thing you can do is move on to your next dream until you feel the tap on your shoulder from Universe to accept delivery of the thing you already practiced knowing to be complete.

This may not work for every manifesting project we’re working on, but sometimes, when you’re not getting traction with your current manifesting approach or you’re starting to get a little fed up with lack of progress, this one can make the difference.

In fact, it’s how my foster kittens have been getting adopted in record time into fabulous homes this past year. Nancy Barry-Jansson heard me speak to an intention to get my kittens adopted swiftly into good homes (I had some anxiety about it for a variety of reasons not worth repeating), and she responded by saying they already were adopted into fabulous homes. It was already done!

And when you remember that time is just an illusion, it’s easy to feel the truth of that. Everything’s already happening and it’s all happening now. So this isn’t even a stretch to embrace the thought of it as done. Because on some level it is.

I took Nancy’s cue, and every time I noticed myself wondering or doubting or worrying, I remembered it was already done. They already are in fabulous homes. As I felt that feeling, I knew I was conjuring magic.

Even though I was right there scooping their litterboxes, I tuned into the “done deal” of kittens in fabulous homes, and it didn’t take reality long to catch up to that vibration.

In fact, I had to manage some unpreparedness for how quickly they were adopted. (My head spun it was so fast!) It wasn’t just fast, either – it’s fabulous families who showed up to take them home! Which is a big deal for me, because this particular subject has in the past been shaky territory for me vibrationally.

And for the record, this technique doesn’t preclude inspired action; on the contrary it fosters it.

But if you have any questions about how to engage this manifesting method, post below and we’ll share our best tips for putting the magic of the Done Deal into your law of attraction success bank.

    I keep going back to this post because of one area where for years I haven’t made any headway — selling stuff on Craigslist and such. When I have good stuff to pass along, I’ll donate it to a thrift store, give it away via FreeCycle, etc., and sometimes I just leave it on the curb. No problem — I know that we sometimes sow in fields where we have not reaped, and vice versa.
    But I also enjoy cash, and sometimes I just want a cause-and-effect exchange. Selling the old dinette set before the new one arrives, for example. Maybe I’d like to use the cash to pay for the new one. I like variety in my money avenues! I’d like to feel like, “Hey, I’ll just post it on Craigslist, and it’ll sell quickly.” It rarely happens that way, though. Whatdya think, Jeannette?

  • Ariadne says:

    The Beatles’ song Let It Be makes so much more sense now. Great post. And Elle, Donald Trump’s success baffled me – your take on it is brilliant.

    • Elle says:

      I know, right? He does not care who he offends, how his business of going and who drops him, what people say or do for or against him, whatever, just fill in the blank. He is totally milking it and basking in it and hence the results. It just dawned on me the other day and this is LOA! Freaky but true! Let’s face it.

      • Elle says:

        Oh, yeah and a few other things, he does not need to kiss anyone’s ass, be political or anything like that, and relies on himself, that is more LOA for ‘ya. I listened to Abe about politicians and then was like, wait a minute, the Donald is not doing any of those things!

  • Steve G says:

    Great post!!
    Thank you,

  • Elle says:

    Ok guys, this is LOA at its best. Donald Trump is leading the race and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is the republican nominee. The point is, he is having fun doing it and it had been fun for him from the beginning. He did not care about what people thought or anything like that. In fact, I suspect he was dared by one of his cronies to enter while in the sauna and he had so much fun doing it he’s now the front runner! so, let’s have more fun, shall we, and let source run through us!

  • oana says:

    Elle, thank you so much:)! I know that there is a reason for everything and, because I was single,I discovered myself so much, I know who I am and what I want, I can do whatever I put my mind into and I can be a great listener.Thank you!

  • sunshine says:

    Hello, Jeannette! In my sadness of no findind love I guess I could use yout technique in order to release resistence and to begin saying:,,I am in a great relationship” when I feel that time is passing by and I am still single ?
    When I go out I don’t find anyone, but also I am afraid a little bit of a relationship, not in such a way I used to be, but there is a part of me who thinks that, maybe I will find or I will accept out of desperation someone who will not treat me right and will profit of my lack of experience and my desire for a family.

    • Jeannette says:

      Sunshine, that would be a big improvement over the signal you’re sending now of being sad that you’re single. Nothing to lose, right? 🙂

    • Elle says:

      Hi sunshine,
      You are sunshine, after all, so there is no need to be sad! I am sure you picked your name deliberately and if not, subconsciously you know you are sunny. So why not radiate that? And as Jeannette mentions, you have nothing to lose. When we are sad, we are not in tune with the universal forces, trust me I know. It was not until I got happy that things started popping.
      Embracing singledom is the best approach. It doesn’t matter if those around you are in relationships or not. It is interesting that those who were in relationships when I was single have split up now. Anyway, embrace life and it will embrace you. I promise! I hope this helps you. I was going to delete it but I wrote too much to do so!

    • Angel says:

      Hi, Sunshine!
      You mentioned feeling that “time is passing by” and you’re still single. And that obviously this spirals into fears about finding someone wrong out of desperation.
      There seems to be a lot of pressure in how you feel, both for yourself and the universe. I can’t imagine that you can even have fun on your own under that kind of weight, much less having fun meeting and dating someone. I know how overwhelming the need to pair bond can be, but you’re not leaving yourself much space to imagine and/or experience something good – starting with just enjoying the time on your own instead of feeling like it’s being “wasted”.
      Experience is gained and everyone starts at zero, goes out there, makes a few missteps before finally getting clear about who and what they want then consequently attracting it. So don’t worry about not being experienced, just focus on “playing”, being a better friend to yourself and opening yourself up to new friends.
      Elle mentioned getting happy, and I agree. The happier you are, the more interesting and attractive you become because no potential amazing partner wants the burden of “filling a hole” BUT they do want to relate, engage and love. I’m sure you wouldn’t want anyone to be with you just because they want a family and you happen to be the best bet, right? You want to be seen and appreciated, loved for who you are. So set the example by doing it for yourself so others can follow!

      • sunshine says:

        Exactly, there are times when I feel so bad about that and I can’t do anything.I can’t enjoy my life because I am scared that time passes by and every year I wish to find and live love…I cannot have fun on my own:(

        • Angel says:

          Yes, you CAN have fun on your own. Think of it this way, how can you expect someone to enjoy your company if you can’t enjoy it by yourself?
          Everything about relationship, to ourselves and others is essentially a dance. You know what it’s like when you show up for a dance right? You’ve practiced some steps, you’re there to enjoy the music, enjoy being dolled up and ready to engage with whomever. This is the part you can actually control, BEING YOU.
          You don’t have to worry about HOW or even really WHO. You just focus on you and your enjoyment. It’s natural to be scared, but courage is going forth despite of your fear. Fear is never really absent, but you decide how useful it is for you.
          So I’m going to leave you with these words from Rilke, who points out quite rightly that we “ripen” ourselves in preparation for the Other. It doesn’t mean we don’t ripen further when we finally couple, but he’s right that we have to get to a point of wholeness before we invite someone in.
          “To love is good, too: love being difficult. For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.
          For this reason young people, who are beginners in everything, cannot yet know love: they have to learn it. With their whole being, with all their forces, gathered close about their lonely, timid, upward-beating heart, they must learn to love.
          But learning-time is always a long, secluded time, and so loving, for a long while ahead and far on into life, is — solitude, intensified and deepened loneness for him who loves. Love is at first not anything that means merging, giving over, and uniting with another (for what would a union be of something unclarified and unfinished, still subordinate — ?), it is a high inducement to the individual to ripen, to become something in himself, to become world, to become world for himself for another’s sake, it is a great exacting claim upon him, something that chooses him out and calls him to vast things. Only in this sense, as the task of working at themselves (“to hearken and to hammer day and night”), might young people use the love that is given them.”

    • Marieke says:

      Dear sunshine,
      Find love right here and now! Love yourself & I don’t know what will follow, but you will feel a lot happier! (and you wouldn’t ever settle for someone who doesn’t treat you right)
      That said: I know it’s easy to write that, I’m still learning too, but I think it’s the essence of it all.

    • Elle says:

      Sunshine, I am telling you, I know feeling bad has its purpose and whatnot, but my point here is, I spent years being depressed and when I look back, I’m like, why the heck did I feel that way when nothing was really wrong? Of course, there was a lot of learning and introspection, angst, I also felt regret for something which I should not have. Whenever I hear someone be sad, I try to spread some sunshine because most of our bad feelings are uncalled for and we over-dramatize and over-react to life, when we should be taking it less seriously. Like, instead of going up and down all the time, going neutral would be nice as well. Like, ok, man, you know, things will happen and I know it but until them I will chill and enjoy. Something like that.

  • anonymous says:

    Love this advice and your story with the kittens, Jeannette! This technique makes so much sense and is very simple. I wonder if it would work for something “big” that I’ve been trying/wanting to manifest for years that still hasn’t manifested. I’m afraid if I stop taking forced action, then I won’t get it.
    On the other hand “should” action, the non-inspired type, feels so tiring and is no fun at all. What feels like relief at this point is giving it up all together, stopping all action unless it feels super good, and trusting that if this manifestation is truly meant to be mine, then the Universe will deliver it to me when the time is right. And the path will be clear, fun and easy.
    I’m afraid if I do this though, that I would be squandering my responsibility. And everyone talks about how you have to take responsibility for your life and can’t just leave things to a higher power/higher self. That nothing is meant to be, we have to be proactive and there is no force to support us except ourselves. Oh, but the idea of doing so feels so good!

    • Jeannette says:

      Anon, you’ll find inspired action serves you way better than forced action:
      And if you threw in some “already done” energy on it – woo hoo!! That’d be some powerful stuff to play with.
      As for not taking responsibility, I love how P’taah says it’s more irresponsible not to use your true creative power. But it all depends on your own belief system, so if I were you, I’d get clear on what mine is and leave everyone else’s opinion out of it. As long as you’re following your own heart, you can’t go wrong, my friend. 🙂

      • anonymous says:

        Thank you for your encouraging response Jeannette! And thank you for the article you linked 🙂
        You are right…I need to trust my heart and leave everyone else’s opinions out! I guess this way of thinking, fully using our creative power, is something that would seem pretty out there to most people. But we know it, so why not use it? My intuition and inspiration are telling me to back off from this desire and just focus on non-related things that feel fun to work on! I keep getting the message to let go, relax and trust.

    I accept delivery.

  • Gabi says:

    I am using this technique right now on my amazing win from the Travel Channel! As a matter of fact I told the universe today that as soon as I submit my name for the vacation sweepstakes that it is mine because I deserve a beautiful and relaxing vacation-this vacation! And it is done. I have to finish packing my bags, but a new swimsuit, and let the universe do the rest!

  • Kate says:

    I love this tip! I had been getting stuck with how to do something for a couple of days. It was really stressing me, so I’d walked away and decided to leave it. As I was vacuuming, I could here Esther’s voice from an Abraham Hicks video I’d watched saying repeatedly “It is done! It is done!” I decided then and there to focus on that. I opened my inbox this morning and there was your post. Definitely a sign that I’m on the right path with this approach for this situation anyway. Thanks Jeannette x

  • Elle says:

    Ah, Living the vibration of your dream- This wonderful technique would definitely free up the worry, which slows manifestation down. I know it is so silly to want something and then worry about it not happening. What the heck? It does not even sound logical to me now as I type this, yet it happens and some of us get sick with it, which impedes our wonderful journey. It really sucks and it can suck the life out of you. This technique helps soothe the worry.
    I would like to add that posting on the blog helps as well. I have seen many manifestations after posting on here, so thank you very much! Namaste!

    • Jeannette says:

      Soothing those doubts and worries is so often the trick, isn’t it, Elle? I’m delighted to hear how posting here amplifies your magic! Fun fun fun! 🙂

  • Kathi says:

    I just love you, Jeannette. You’re so helpful. This post comes at just the right time for me. I was already trying to be “hootless” as you have said (I love that word). And I know that desperation pushes money away. I have been in kind of a 2 steps forward 8 steps back situation. For instance, money has literally blown in on my porch. That’s right. First a $5. Then a $10 about a week later. Things I dream of having appear beside me or in my line of view. Indicators everywhere. Receiving groceries and money from my sister out of the “blue.” And then? A huge debt…and I’ve been climbing my way around the emotional scale and poking around trying to get the feeling of being debt-free. I am going to try the done deal and then start a jigsaw puzzle. I think about 1,000 pieces is necessary. Ha!

    • Jeannette says:

      Money manifesting sure gives us a chance to hone our skills, doesn’t it?! I love that you’ve experienced money literally blowing in, Kathi!
      Here’s to financial freedom and confidence and abundance flowing your way, too. 🙂

  • Dani says:

    My question would be what kind of situations would it be good to use done dealing it? Try and if it doesn’t feel believe able move on? Or just keep repeating it?

    • Jeannette says:

      Yes, I would trust my inspiration/intuition to lead, Dani. I had suggested this may not work for every manifesting project we’re working on, but sometimes, when you’re not getting traction with your current manifesting approach or you’re starting to get a little fed up with lack of progress, this one can make the difference.
      I tend to use it when I’m feeling a bit stuck with something. Or when it’s a project where the present seeming reality isn’t so “in my face” every waking moment.
      When it feels appropriate to use it, this can be a good way to get the good vibes rolling again. 🙂
