Manifesting is Not Spiritual

“Manifesting – the business of doing nothing more than bringing into form a new aspect of yourself.” --Wayne Dyer

This entry is for those of you who are a bit hung up on asking for what you want. Do you feel guilty or selfish? Or do you feel like your life is “good enough”? Do you feel it is not spiritual to “ask” for anything? Let me tell you my take on manifesting…According to the world of manifesting (and what I have seen in my own life), we prevent more from coming into our life by thinking we can’t have it. We think we can’t have it from fear we are holding on to. That fear keeps us from feeling truly wonderful, joyful, and blissful. The fear keeps us from fully evolving to fulfill our deepest potential. It keeps us from being the best we can be; from being the source of joy to the world we are all capable of being.

When we release the fear, our whole world opens up and love and joy floods into our life. We become more loving and compassionate. Of course, now that you released the fear, you then receive all you were trying to receive. Ironically, you then don’t even feel you need whatever it was you wanted in the first place because your joy and contentment is now internal.

Manifesting isn’t about using the universe as your “personal concierge” (although, you could!) Manifesting is about uncovering another layer of yourself. Releasing your fears and unleashing your joy. Imagine what that would do for those around you. Are you a parent? Spouse? Friend? Relative? Coworker? Imagine showing up in the world from pure joy and love. I can always tell just by seeing another if they are joyful and it is so wonderful to be around those people. It is time for you to be one of those people, too!

Here is another of my favorite manifesting quotes.
“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” (by Mark Twain)
