What's Your Secret?

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 173

Several years back, everyone was buzzing about a certain book that had just come out, called "The Secret." Curious as always, I went out to buy it. At the end of the first chapter, I wasn't very impressed. It wasn't that well written, and none of the ideas expressed were anything new. I already knew that what you put out into the universe, you would receive back-didn't everyone know that? I knew that if you wanted something badly enough, you could make it happen. Why was everyone talking about all these simplistic ideas as if they had never been considered before?

It didn't take me long to finish the book, and my opinion of it did change somewhat. Rather than viewing it as an innovative work, though, I saw it as a feelgood story designed to cheerlead the disenchanted into revving up their passion for achieving their goals.

It wasn't until a few years later that I began to view those theories in a new light. I was driving to Boston with my sister to look at an apartment. When I got there, I found the new place to be large, conveniently located, and very well-priced. In essence, it was everything I could have hoped for. On the ride back, my sister made a comment about my ability to manifest what I wanted.

"Anyone can do that," I responded.

"Not like you. Everything always works out for you," she answered... a bit snippily, I might add.

"That's because I'm really passionate about getting what I want, and I don't stop until I make it happen," I replied.

But then I started to really think about it. Am I passionate? Absolutely. Am I lazy? Hell, yes! If I love what I'm doing, I will devote every ounce of myself into the job at hand. If I don't care? Eh, not so much. I'm the queen of procrastination and half-assery when it comes to working on things I'm not fond of. This is why most of my dinners come from a can.

So, what is it that makes a good manifestor? As I pondered the question, I realized that the key to it all is a lack of doubt. Once I set my mind to something, I never question for a second that it will happen. If I walk into a job interview, there is not a doubt in my mind that I am already hired. I always talk about things I want to happen as if they have already taken place... because in my mind, they already have.

Of course, if it was as easy as I am making it sound, we would all be millionaires with perfect spouses and abs. Visualization is hard. There are some people who can't seem to do it at all. (Over the years I have met lots of people who have told me they've never had a daydream. I find this really hard to believe, but why would they lie?) Even for those who are really good at visualizing what they want, though, it is still difficult to let go of experiencing reality as it is, rather than what it could be. We are trained to live in the here and now, and living in a world of your own creation is seen as...well, insane.

This weekend, go forth and practice manifesting something simple, just to get started. Just manifest silently, or the doubt of those around you will taint everything. Start small, and think of one thing that would make you happy... then visualize the crap out of it. Train yourself to ditch the doubt, and you will soon be creating all kinds of wonderful things for yourself!
