Most people have spent lifetimes seeking, yearning, and hoping for that special “something or someone” to show up before they can relax and be truly happy. There is always that bigger and better something or someone showing up someday, so the desiring machine inside you never becomes satisfied. It is only knows three things…wanting, wanting, and more wanting. If you’ve become wrapped up in a constant state of desiring that better relationship, that bigger bank account, that skinnier body in the future (or whatever the mind is addicted to), you might want to see what you’re really experiencing on the inside and actually manifesting on the outside.
“Outwardness of the mind is suffering…inwardness is happiness.” ~Ramana
The energy of desire is not a bad thing. It just creates a false sensation of lack within. The desire to pay your bills and feed your family might be something that helps you spring out of bed each morning, yet if it has become the main carrot that drives your entire life purpose and mission, it is blinding you from seeing why you are truly here. I invite you to try on something very radical today. Perhaps the most radical experiment you’ll do in your entire life. For one hour, don’t desire anything. Try it! Step away from the desiring mind by calling off the perpetual search addicted to wanting, yearning, and hoping. That special “something or someone” will find you much easier. By putting your attention on what permanently satisfies your soul, you become a magnet for manifesting all of your desires instantly.
“There’s no way to freedom. A ‘way’ means you have to start from somewhere and arrive somewhere. This is the deception of the mind. You don’t have to go anywhere to find freedom. Forget about finding your way, you are already That which you are seeking.” ~Papaji
The Universe wants you to be financially abundant and is always supporting you in making this a reality. So it really doesn’t matter what the economy is doing, or how long you’ve been struggling financially, it’s more about the vibration you’re sending out into the world today! Financial abundance is your birthright! It’s time for you to claim your abundant nature and start manifesting the financial abundance you truly deserve. Here are 5 easy steps that will support you in manifesting much abundance into your life:
1. Fully Acknowledge, Accept, and Embrace Your Abundant Nature.
The secret to feeling your abundant nature is to open your heart, and fully embrace the abundance that has already blessed your life. Let your armor melt away. Remove any shielding around your heart and imagine throwing it into a big fire. Breathe deeply and physically open your arms wide, inviting this abundant Universe into your heart. With each in-breath, imagine that EVERYTHING in the entire Universe is pouring into your heart; all the stars, planets, Earth, and all its people. Feel how truly abundant life already is. Let your heart welcome it all!
“It is not only my right and my privilege to walk in the abundance God has for me, it is my responsibility…just as it is my responsibility to live the rest of my truth.” ~ Jan Denise
2. Welcome with Gratitude the Abundance that is all Around You.
“Expect your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level, expect to grow spiritually. You are not living by human laws. Expect miracles and see them take place. Hold ever before you the thought of prosperity and abundance, and know that doing so sets in motion forces that will bring it into being.” ~Eileen Caddy
All of your poverty, all of your financial struggles, and every desperate lacking feeling you’ve ever had around money can be easily eliminated. You have the power to effortlessly create abundance all around you, if you are willing to be wrong, to let go of all your old thinking and feeling habits, and try on something completely new, radical and revolutionary. From this day on, go to the very root of what is instigating your feelings of financial challenge, uproot those old thought patterns and replace them with the following exercise below, and you’ll see before your eyes that everything changes.
The very core of your all your struggle with money stem from that one place which you never thought to look. It’s underneath that most subtle, slippery, sneaky, unsuspecting source inside our mind. Every experience of financial suffering came from the root identification, “I AM struggling with money”. You see, whenever you follow any idea in your head after these two magical words “I AM” you will manifest exactly what follows. All financial issues stem from this thought, or a thought that sounds similar to it.
So there you are…sitting with your eyes closed and your legs crossed, visualizing a huge check in your mailbox, being a lottery jackpot winner, landing an amazing business deal, being hired for a higher paying job, or receiving that million dollar inheritance from that missing uncle you never knew you had. You know you deserve to have this kind of financial abundance, and part of you believes it’s really coming to you. You have been doing everything right for some time now, visualizing your success and feeling as if you are already living the abundant lifestyle you desire. Yet, nothing seems to be happening in your outer world. Should you just throw in the towel and give up? Absolutely not! This is a grand opportunity to get super curious about what is blocking you from manifesting the abundance you desire.
If there was one thing that continuously creates a wall between you and manifesting your desires, it is the energy of attachment. Attachment is always the culprit hindering everyone’s manifesting vibration. Whenever you MUST manifest a desire or dream in order to be happy, then you’ve missed life completely and have become overly attached. When a desire for money becomes incessantly more important than being intimate with your beloved, you’ve again missed it and are too attached. Anytime you NEED to make an ridiculously abundant income to be “fulfilled”, then your being tenses up with anxious neurotic energy and you actually end up unable to receive your manifestation. The tight, contracted consciousness lowers your ability to manifest and keep you from FEELING and KNOWING yourself as the Divine All-Powerful Manifesting Being you already are.
“The law of detachment means that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it. This doesn’t mean you give up your intention to create your desire. You don’t give up the intention, and you don’t give up the desire. You give up your attachment to the result.” ~Deepak Chopra
“Why hanker for security? Life is insecure in its very nature, hence it is simple logic: those who want to be more alive, they have to live in insecurity. The greater the insecurity, the more will be your aliveness.” ~Osho
Each one of us naturally carries a deep and sacred clarity about ourselves and our world. We were born with a crystal clear perception of life that has no judgments nor any limiting beliefs. However, through the years this innate understanding became clouded by others judgments, opinions and misperceptions. Habitual thinking patterns soon developed that were embedded with gobs of assumptions, societal beliefs, and countless stories about what limited and powerless human beings we really are. With all of this misunderstanding, the mind could assume that this whole world was unjust, and that human interactions were a constant struggle we all just had to deal with to survive.
The habit of unclear seeing can be so cloudy that you don’t realize you’ve got it. If you feel that you’re in a whirlpool of challenges and have been suffering on any level for weeks or months, you will want to break out of this spinning toilet bowl of limited thinking and simply return to your greatest truth. Your greatest truth is that which liberates you on the deepest level and causes your life to overflow with joy and ease. It is your most natural state of being that has the taste of unbounded freedom! When we can clearly know our truth and feel what is exactly going on within our heart, we become aligned with our soul’s mission and feel a deep aliveness bubbling up from within. The truth brings us into the experience of “divine alignment” with the whole Universe, where every day feels like you’re floating down a fun effortless river made of milk and honey.

“Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of living in the way. ~Buddha, from the Dhammapada

“First figure out what you want. Second, you have to decide that you deserve it. Third, you have to believe you can get it. And, fourth, you have to have the guts to ask for it.” ~ Barbara De Angelis
Get ready, you are entering the most exciting year of your life! There is nothing that is going to compare to the levels of love, spiritual evolution and conscious inner growth that will be available to you this next year. Yes, 2012 is here and the essential key to getting the most out of this awesome enlightening adventure will be in how conscious you truly are. The more unguarded, sensitive, truly present, and receptive you can be, the easier it will be to receive whatever your heart desires Make it your goal to allow your heart and mind to become fully unguarded this year. Be willing to let people in, allowing love to pour into you, through you, so that you can take your soul far beyond the ordinary experiences you’ve had before.
The moment you live in a deep receptivity, with your heart open to existence, you also become available to experiencing the divine all-intelligent God Source that is right here right now. From this deep spiritual connection you have the ability to receive anything you want in life. Yes, anything! Whatever your mind can believe is possible is possible. You can manifest anything when your vibration is high enough to not reject it. When you truly become surrendered to each moment, you become like two hands open with palms facing the sky, willing to feel the sunshine or the rain. From this place your gates are open wide for miraculous manifestations to magically occur. In truth, miracles are already happening to you now, its just that when your mind gets out of the way you’ll be able to see all of them!!
Manifesting without effort simply happens when you stop guarding and defending your ego, and start being a vessel of pure love. Instead of thinking how others hurt you, think about how you can help them. Who is it that needs guarding anyway? Your soul is made of pure conscious light. Why on earth would you need to protect that? Stop trying to assert your power over or under others, pretending to be something smaller or bigger than who you are. You are already the God Source itself, so trying to be any one thing just means you don’t realize the absolute vast being that you are. Simply give up this ego trip. That is all. This defensive guard at your gate can overlook the positive and negative commentary that others may unconsciously spew out. It really doesn’t matter what anyone says, what’s the most interesting thing of all is how YOU respond.
“That which is real cannot be threatened, and that which is unreal does not exist.” ~The Course In Miracles
Through a 100% pure receptivity to life you’ll develop a laser-like focus for seeing the Divine in all people and the conversations you have with them. Others may spit out buckets of rubbish and all you hear are the awesome creative juices of life gurgling forth. Through full receptivity you stop resonating in judgment and fear. You begin to merge with the Divine and trust life completely. You realize your life purpose is to become aligned with the highest possible consciousness. This is the only way to know what is real. Otherwise this entire life is spent in following illusions. Use your heart to find your way through the mirage. Trust your body and its intuition. It is the MOST sacred vessel in this Universe. This body is The Divine and when you love it unconditionally, being sensitive to what its telling you, amazing manifestations can flow through it and into your life.
You are always manifesting something, whether you are conscious of it or not. You have manifested everything in your life from the shoes on your feet, to the amount of money in your bank, to the quality of every relationship in your life. The truth is you cannot stop manifesting. You are a super powerful manifesting being! So if you were to start consciously using this awesome power, what would you focus on manifesting into your life? Are you focusing on what you want from a place of hoping it will occur, or really trusting it will show up? Are you always conscious of how you are focusing on what you want, or do you tend to manifest things at an unconscious level out of habit? We are always sending out a vibrational energy into the Universe that boomerangs back to us in the form of physical manifestations which reflect the quality of this vibration. The question is what quality of energy are you putting into the thoughts you want to manifest?
“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.” ~Brian Tracy
Perhaps you are simply humming along in life, living in a tick-tock 9 to 5 job with the TV as your companion without consciously asking yourself, “What kind of day do I want to manifest today?” Think about it. How would you like to FEEL at the end of today? When we are consciously manifesting, we are more specific, intuitive, and can create more energy around our dream. When we are unconsciously manifesting, we don’t exactly get what we really want. It tends to be more hit or miss. We get a little of this and a little of that.
“We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
