Today’s lesson will be a discussion about how you can manifest in situations where you can’t use a formal process.
Before we get into that, though, let me explain why this may be important. You see, you won’t always have the option to sit down, relax into yourself, elicit positive emotions, imagine the desired outcome, then anchor that in with feelings of Absolute Truth and Divine Power. Sometimes, you’ll find yourself in a situation where you want or need to influence the outcome while staying alert and active, such as when driving, walking down a sidewalk at night, or in a social situation.
Maybe you’ll notice someone you’d like to meet, and you want to make sure you make a good first impression. Maybe you’ll see someone driving erratically, and you want to reinforce Divine Protection for yourself and your vehicle. Or maybe the boss has just called you into his/her office, and you want to make sure it’s going to be an enjoyable experience.
In times like these, you want to be able to channel Divine Power into the situation quickly and without taking your focus off of what’s happening around you.
There’s also another benefit to learning how to manifest without a formal process. When you master this ability, then you can spend less time in prayer, and more time enjoying life.
So, let’s talk about how you can do this.
Creating a No-Process Process
Just as we did last week in creating a custom process, the first thing we need to do to create a no-process process is review our basic principles. The primary keys to manifesting are Faith, Focus, and Feeling, or as I described them last week, connecting to the Divine, communicating what you want to manifest, then declaring success.
As long as all three of these factors are present, your manifesting process can be anything you want it to be. This allows you to put your own personality into it, and it also allows for the possibility to use a very quick process that seems to be almost nothing at all.
In last week’s lesson, we also talked about how these factors can be referenced through symbols to bring them in quickly. Prayer beads, crystals, pyramids, music, and other symbols can trigger the mind to make a connection to the Divine. Words, colors, pictures, and other symbols can serve as a shortcut to describe the end result desired. And symbols can also associate what you’ve just done with the concepts of Absolute Truth, Divine Power, and so on.
When you want to shortcut the process as much as possible, symbols can be used to activate the basic principles of manifesting. And the wonderful thing is that one symbol can be associated with more than one of these factors. For instance, your symbol for the Divine can trigger your mind to make a connection to the Divine as well as trust that whatever you do when using the symbol is definitely going to manifest.
One example I used in last week’s lesson was the idea of a mage holding up a crystal rod and shouting, “Money!” As long as this person believes this will attract financial abundance into their life, it will. Some folks will burn a red candle to attract love. Some carry a rabbit’s foot for general good luck. Others will use crystals to focus Divine Power and direct it where needed. All of these are symbols used for a purpose, and can help speed up the process of manifesting, as long as the person using the symbol believes that it will work.
Not all symbols need to be physical objects. Some folks will visualize a shield of white light to protect them whenever they feel they may be in danger. Others will call upon their guardian angels to help them in times of need. An imagined pyramid can be just as effective as a physical one as long as you believe it is.
The most important thing about using symbols is to have a strong faith in the symbol itself. If you don’t already have a strong belief in a symbol, it is possible to create it. One of the most effective ways is to use the Harmonic Prayer process to relax deeply, connect to the Divine, and then imagine you have a strong faith that your chosen symbol will produce the specific result you want. In effect, you are hypnotizing yourself to associate the symbol with it’s intended purpose. We will cover this in more depth in Module 2 of this course.
Luckily, this is rarely needed. The Harmonic Process itself can be simplified down to a very quick process.
When I need to be quick, I find that taking a deep breath and thinking of my own Divine Essence is enough to strengthen my connection to the Divine. This only takes a couple of seconds. Imagining the end result I want to manifest doesn’t need to take long either, and can be done in just a second or two. And because I have enough experience with manifesting and KNOW that it works as long as I trust it, the intention to manifest is enough, because I have the faith to back it up. If I do feel a need to strengthen my faith, bringing in the concepts of Absolute Truth and so on only takes another second or two.
So, in essence, the manifesting process, for me at least, can be as simple as taking a breath, imagining what I want to manifest, and knowing that it will be done, and all this can be done in less than 10 seconds. In theory, as long as you have an intention to manifest something and the belief that it will happen, that’s really all you need. In fact, I’ve taught my email subscribers that the simplest and most direct affirmation that can work in any situation is, “I Can & I Will.” Belief and Intention — the bare minimum for manifesting.
“I Can and I Will”
Now that we’ve covered all that, HOW do you actually develop the ability to manifest with a simple decision?
As I’ve suggested a few times here, a lot of it comes down to practice and experience. The more you manifest positive outcomes from your decisions, the more you will trust that your decisions will lead to positive outcomes.
It’s a combination of faith and intention.
We’ve covered several methods in this course to increase your faith. One of the best ways is to use the Harmonic Prayer process to manifest greater faith, imagining yourself channeling Divine Power to manifest miracles, and anchoring this into your mind by associating your manifesting ability with the concepts of Divine Power, Absolute Truth, and Eternal Persistence.
As far as intentions go, we all know folks who are very firm in their intentions, and others who are incredibly wishy-washy about things, and have little to no willpower behind their intentions. If you want or need to manifest with nothing more than a simple decision, your decisions must be firm and unwavering.
Luckily, there are some easy and fun ways to develop your willpower and strengthen your intentions.
A quick way to do this is to focus on little things that can be done easily. For instance, when you wake up in the morning, decide to get out of bed, then do it. Make a decision to go to the bathroom, then do that. Make a decision to get dressed, then do it. Within a few minutes, you’ve already made 3 decisions to manifest an outcome and all have been successful.
Willpower is essentially the ability to make a decision and follow through on that decision. When you go through your whole day making conscious decisions to do each thing before you do it, you can easily develop a pattern of success very quickly. Again, this is like the example I shared where I increased my ability to lift heavier weights by doing nothing more than developing a pattern of success, and using that pattern to support my faith that I could do more, one small step at a time.
If you keep going with this idea, within a few days, you’ll have made several hundred decisions all leading to positive outcomes, and this will make it much easier to trust that you can make more difficult decisions and follow through on them as well. Just increase the degree of difficulty slowly, like I added only 2.5 pounds each day during my experiment.
Where many of us have trouble with this approach is where we have to choose between things that are similar, but different. We feel that if we make the wrong decision, we’ll lose out on something. For example, do you get the waffle cone with mint chocolate chip, or do you get the butter pecan in a cup instead? Do you decide to mow the lawn, or do you decide to kick back and relax? Or which movie do you watch tonight?
I used to have a very hard time making these types of decisions. I’d go to the video store to rent a movie, and I’d spend an hour browsing the shelves to find the movie I MOST WANTED to see. Eventually, I realized that I would eventually see all of them, so it wasn’t a life or death decision, and I could grab the first one that caught my eye, rent that one, then get a different one the next time around.
Of course, even after that, there were other situations where I spent WAY TOO MUCH time researching a purchase. Sometimes, I’d spend 40 hours over several weeks researching a purchase of one of two products, where one was only $50 more than the other. I eventually realized that if I just bought the better option, I could use the time I’d otherwise spend researching on something more profitable, or at least more enjoyable.
And just as I’ve been suggesting to you, I found that the more I made firm decisions and followed through with them, even with the stuff that didn’t really matter, the easier it became to make more difficult decisions and stick with them, even when doing so meant that I was inconveniencing myself to follow through on what I felt was right and fair to others.
In lesson 13, I’ll show you how you can use your connection to the Divine to make perfect decisions every single time. For now, just focus on the idea of making decisions and following through with them.
Going back to our idea of starting small and gradually increasing the difficulty of the things you manifest, this program of consciously making decisions and then following through on them will eventually lead you into areas where you can decide to manifest really big goals and see them successfully completed, including goals that require certain actions by others and physical events outside the direct control of any person, like controlling the weather, or games of chance.
By that point, though, you’ll realize that nothing is truly outside of your direct control, because you’ll know that your decisions, backed by Divine Power, can influence anything.
This week, we’ve been talking mainly about developing an ability to manifest quickly in situations where you may not be able to use the full Harmonic Prayer process. What I haven’t mentioned is that the skills you develop here will also improve the results you get with the Harmonic Prayer process itself, as well as any custom process you may have put together for yourself.
For this reason, I strongly encourage you to do the homework assignment, even if you feel you don’t really need it.
And here’s what I want you to do.
Starting right now, every time you’re about to do something, make a conscious decision to do it, then follow through on that decision. Before you decide to close out this webpage, make a conscious decision to close it out, and then do it. When you get up tomorrow morning, make a conscious decision to get out of bed, then do it. Make a conscious decision to go to the bathroom before doing so. Make a conscious decision to get dressed, and then follow through with that decision.
Before you get something to eat or drink, make a conscious decision, then proceed to do what you were going to do anyways.
At some point, you’re going to feel that this is ridiculous and maybe even a bit pointless. Trust me, there’s a point to this madness. If you’ve had any trouble making decisions and sticking with them in the past, this will completely turn that habit around and get your willpower working the way it was meant to. Even if you have an incredibly strong willpower, this will help you associate that strong willpower with your manifesting ability.
Combine this with the practice of setting an intention to manifest things that would probably happen anyways. By working with both of these ideas together, you are establishing a history of success, and our belief systems are supported by our memories, especially recent memories.
In addition to this, use your Harmonic Prayer sessions to manifest a pattern of successfully manifesting using nothing more than simple decisions. Relax deeply into yourself, make a strong connection with the Divine, imagine yourself manifesting with simple decisions, and anchor this in with the feelings and ideas of Absolute Truth, Divine Power, and so on. If you’d like, include an affirmation you can use when quick results are necessary, such as “I Can & I Will.”
One way to think of all this is that the Harmonic Prayer sessions will open the channel for Divine Power, and your quick manifesting efforts will depend on that channel being open and ready when you need it.
When you get these two processes working together, you’ll be well on your way to being a true master of the art and science of manifesting.
Until next time, be blessed, my friend.
