Seen the movie “The Secret”? A lot of people were drawn to it because it promises that if you work with the techniques you can create all sorts wealth in your life.
Are the techniques sound? Yes they are. They are based on the universal law of attraction. But did people have success with it? Not everyone. Most people missed the most important part which was not discussed in the movie.
Let’s say you want to manifest a house to live in and right now you live in an apartment. So you cut out pictures of that perfect house and put it on your fridge or cork board to help you focus your visualizations. You spend each day manifesting it by feeling all the joy of living there as you imagine each and every room.
You do this day after day, after day…and no house comes. You learn that you need to have the energy of action with your focus. So you start going to open houses, get pre-approved for a mortgage, and find a real estate agent.
Still that perfect house doesn’t come. What are you doing wrong? You haven’t cleaned out your inner house. In other words, what beliefs and emotions do have that are energetically blocking or cancelling out what you are trying to manifest?
Let’s look at it from the Universe’s side. The Universe hears your words “I want a big house”. It notices the energy you put into that request. It gets that celestial order form of all the little details you want and how it will make you feel.
The Universe also gets the vibration of all your unspoken fears and beliefs that you may be denying. Like the fear of not being able to afford the mortgage with the income you have. Or the belief that houses need so much work that you’ll end up being miserable owning a house. Or maybe your parents got divorced when you were a kid and you saw them fighting over who got the house.
All these things have energy vibration too. And when you try to manifest your dream house, all of your energy is what goes out to the Universe.
The missing secret to manifestation is to heal those instances that created the beliefs in you that resulted in fear and negative thoughts. You can do this by acknowledging your true fears – sometimes just naming them with a friend takes their power away.
Sometimes coming up with a plan B makes you feel safer and you can manifest that. For example, maybe you don’t need a house with three garages. Maybe you’ll be just as happy with a one car garage and that makes you feel better about the mortgage payment so your fear levels go down.
Other times you may need the help of a therapist. Does a house subconsciously represent relationship failure to you because of what you saw and felt as a child watching your parents fall apart and struggle? Heal the relationship (energetically and emotionally) with the parents and the symbolism of the house may change for you.
I’m using a house as an example here. People have all sorts of fears and negative beliefs that could interfere with manifestation. Do you really feel worthy of a great relationship, or do you believe that you are unlovable? Do you really want to win that big lottery jackpot, or do you believe that you’ll lose your friends and family over money? You get the picture.
The most powerful manifestation comes when you show the Universe that you are ready in both your external and internal environments.
