What do you want?
Seriously. Do you even know?
About a year ago I read a book called, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles.
In it, he explains that EVERYTHING comes from our minds.
Okay, I know that sounds weird, but hear me out.
A light bulb wouldn’t exist if Thomas Edison hadn’t conceived of it in his mind. Nor would a car, an airplane, or an iPhone. See where I’m going with this?
All of these tangible, physical “things” were ideas first. They were conceived in someone’s mind and that person or group of people then went about creating a physical product.
Isn’t that great news?
This means that with intention, and belief, (and inspired action) you can manifest whatever you want in your life too.
Wattle suggests an exercise that looks like this:
Use your mind to form a mental image of what you want, and to hold that vision with faith and purpose...The picture of your desires, held with faith and purpose, is taken up by the Formless, and permeates it to great distances-throughout the universe.
As this impression spreads, all things are set moving toward its realization; every living thing, every inanimate thing, and the things yet uncreated, are stirred toward bringing into being that which you want. All force begins to be exerted in that direction; all things begin to move toward you. The minds of people, everywhere, are influenced toward doing the things necessary to the fulfilling of your desires; and they work for you, unconsciously.
Ernest Holmes, the founder of Science of Mind also writes about this phenomenon in his book, The Art of Life.
In it, he tells a story about one of his congregants, a piano teacher who was trying to use this manifesting tool to attract new students, only it wasn’t working. When Holmes heard what she was saying, he immediately knew why. She was using vague statements like, “God is the only mind there is.”
He explained that, “she labored under the misperception that abstract statements can produce definite results.”
So he helped her create a new affirmation using precise wording and soon she was meeting people left and right who wanted to study with her or recommend her.
Her new, successful affirmation reads:
I have a service to render. My business is to teach the piano. Whoever needs my service, whomever I can peculiarly and personally benefit, those whom I can particularly aid in this art, are irresistibly drawn to me now, today, this moment.
It specifically stated exactly what she wanted. And it was written in the present tense.
(Because the only time is now.)
Both of these examples give you a template to use so you can precisely word what it is that you want.
If you’re ready to manifest more good in your life, here are 3 easy steps:
1. Decide What You Want
Be as crystal clear as possible. Take some time to really think about it and be precise and accurate with your words. Tailor the words above to meet your needs.
2. Time Is Now
Speak in the present tense. It is happening right now, today, this exact moment.
3. Be Bold
Say your statement with conviction, emotion, and power. Feel that it is true within your being. And repeat your affirmation often. The more you do it, the faster your results will flow.
The universe waits patiently to support and help us. But it needs to know exactly what we want!
Try using one or both of these incredibly powerful statements. Make them yours and claim what it is you most desire.
