Guidance from Spirit
Intention combined with a ritual (of your own personal choice) creates magic. It’s about empowering the intention with the faith that it SHALL happen, that makes it manifest in such a wonderful way. To truly be a co-creator of your own life you need to stay focused and aware of your thoughts. Focus on what you want in your life instead of what you don’t. The Universe doesn’t understand negative. Negative is a lack, but the Universe is abundant and can only operate in this way. Focus on what you love, be grateful and you shall receive this in abundance.
Setting rituals highly improves the speed of the manifestation. You can do this in a way that feels powerful to you. No need for others to be involved in this, or to tell you what to say or what not to say. You don’t need dragon’s blood or magical stones. A shoebox and string can work well if it has meaning to you. To manifest is FREE. You all have the power no matter where you are in life. It’s a conscious choice.
Now, do you want to live your life operating from an unconscious state, or do you want to break free and wake up? Divine tools (like manifestation) are yours for the taking. Use them. Do not listen to people who say their truth is the only truth. This mindset is set in ego, not in spirit. Be open, accepting and trust your heart, not the heart of others.
At home, in the divine/spiritual realm, manifesting is instant. It’s there at the same time as your thought. Blink. Poof. There. This is similar to what happens when you dream (although this is a clutter of many things, some important, some noise and some release of your brain’s excess information and impressions gathered in your awake state), you create your dream instantaneously with your thoughts, both from your unconscious, subconscious, and conscious mind. This is why it feels so real. Sometimes it also is real, in a spiritual sense. Your soul can partially leave your body when you’re sleeping or when in a still, silent manner as with meditation (you need to quiet your mind and relax/disconnect your physical body, your heavy garment in this existence), to heal and to refresh energy. Your sleep is important both for your body, mind and soul.
You are manifesting every day in a similar fashion when awake, but it’s not instant. You don’t see the results right away, and you can therefor be unaware of it when it is happening, and blame it on bad or good luck. There’s no such thing as luck. Just the moving and transforming of energies in an unconscious or conscious manner. Although this can sometimes be moved into your favor by divine assistance.
Prayer is also a manifestation, but more direct and powerful. You should do it more often. It clears your mind as well. Magic is your divine birthright.
