Years ago, when The Secret came out and manifestation techniques were getting popular, no one really knew what they were doing. I mean, you knew you wanted a better life, right? But that was really about all. You were told to visualize, do vision boards, do affirmations, think positively, live ‘as if’ you had already received it all. But how did you really put that into play and what kind of results did you get?
No one talked about the fact that there is a right way to do it. Because really, no one had any idea that there was a right way. Not to mention the fact the you have to manifest from your heart and reprogram your brain to work with it – and that all starts with a healing and self-love journey, with a highly important element of spirituality and surrender to the divine. There are elements that need to align, at least to really attract more specific and bigger things to your life.
You can only Attract what You Believe You can Attract
We are all capable of doing this on a basic level for sure. But not everyone. There are definitely those who believe they are always getting the short end of the stick, and based on that belief, they will continue to. You are basically able to manifest at the level you are at with all of the above. And really, you’ll know in your gut what is possible for you. You will know if you need to reign it in just a little. (Also a potential sign of worthiness issues that could need some healing.)
We know there is a healing journey that leads up to greater manifestation, so I’m not skipping over that. But you can work on your manifestation at any time. It’s just a matter of whether or not you have things that need to be healed that are holding you back, like unlovability, unworthiness, poverty mentality, etc. So know that if your heart magnet isn’t pulling in what you desire, you may still have some healing to do. You won’t believe that it’s possible until you have healed what needs to be healed to open your heart to greater manifestation.
The cool thing is, my guides have me shooting for the moon right now. I have been doing years of work on these areas, and now I have been told to get super specific in my manifesting. That I can manifest at that level. So, my vision boards are full of specific words and pictures of what I want. There may be others of you that are at this point as well, and you will know by whether or not you can feel it in your heart.
Your Heart is the Magnet
That’s really the most important element in manifesting overall. Can you feel it in your heart? I mean really – this is not a silly “do you love it?” way, where you say, “of course!”. This is – can you feel that expansive feeling across your chest when you look at the picture and imagine it/them being in your life? Do you actually feel it in your heart? That is how you will know if you are on the right track. Because that is the ONLY way to manifest it. Does it/that person make your heart feel expansive? That is the feeling of loving something/someone and being deeply passionate. And THAT my friends will draw it to you.
I find that I can achieve this feeling now through both my vision boards, and through the affirmations that I say that align with the same areas I am working to manifest in my life. I have focused in on what aligns with my heart and my passion, what I truly love, and that is what I am putting my energy into. And I can FEEL all of it! Mind you, I have some days that some of it doesn’t resonate as deeply as other days and there is a reason for that. Because if you are not really in the moment, you’re rushing through your affirmations, or just not letting yourself feel the feelings – your magnet is off. You need to take the time to really feel it to attract it.
The RIGHT Way to Visualize
How do you REALLY feel it? Well here you go – the RIGHT way to visualize…. So, this was actually clearly outlined to me by my guides today when I was rushing my affirmations and not feeling it, and then I stopped, closed my eyes and had a very vivid visualization that I felt deeply in my heart. My guides were chiming my solar chimes like crazy (my sign of confirmation – and it was also a cloudy day, so clearly the sun wasn’t doing it – LOL). And then suddenly I got the ‘download’ of this blog and what I was to write about (and they are chiming the chimes in the bedroom right now in the dark….LOL). Yep.
So, it’s about FEELING it. And I mean REALLY feeling it. Let me give you a few examples.
Maybe you look at your vision board and you have a happy picture of a couple because you want a relationship. Great. Maybe you even have affirmations about being in a happy marriage with a wonderful man. Excellent. Maybe you even have a specific person you love, and you have their picture up – and it makes you smile when you look at your vision board. Wonderful.
But here’s what you need to do in addition to really attract them. You need to close your eyes and see them (if you don’t have a specific person in mind, use a famous star as your stand-in). Maybe imagine yourself in a beautiful location, hand in hand. Can you feel the warmth of their hand? Look into their eyes and see the love in their eyes, and feel it, really feel it in your heart. Get close to them and feel the touch of their skin, the amazing feeling of their arms around you, and the softness of their lips as they kiss you. Sorry, is it getting hot in here? LOL.
Seriously though. Your visualizations have to get REAL. I mean REALLY real. If you can feel it, experience it in your mind, and have that expansive feeling in your heart of love/passion – you WILL draw it to you.
So how about a less sensual example. LOL. So, let’s say there is a specific car you want. You probably even have it on your vision board and look at it daily. But you are missing this heart-centered, ‘feeling it’ experience with it. While some will go out and drive the car at a car dealer to have that experience for real, you actually can have just as real an experience in your mind. And I think it’s better (if you have a good imagination), because you can sit and create the vision that makes you feel amazing about it.
So, go and look up the interior of that car so you can really see it. Then close your eyes and visualize it. Can you feel that leather steering wheel in your hands? Can you smell that incredible new car smell? Feel the exhilaration of knowing that it’s yours? Take it for a drive in your mind – feel the pride and comfort of having the car you have always wanted! Let that expansive passionate feeling fill your heart! If you can really see it and really feel it – that is REAL visualizing. That is how to magnetize it to you.
Let Your Passion and Love Guide Your Heart
I’m also going to say that the more you can do this, the better. But within reason of course. You don’t need to take multiple breaks from your job or anything. But maybe make a routine of doing this when you sit and look at your vision boards at night? Whatever works for you, but just know that this deeper level of visualization – realistic visualization with passion – that is going to be the biggest pull for you. Because passing by and glancing at a vision board every day is lovely, but it’s not activating your heart magnet enough. Do a deep and passionate visualization. Feel the love. Turn it all the way up to 11 my friends. Let it feel as real as possible and feel it in your heart to attract it!
