The ability to transmute thoughts into actions, this is driven by the inexhaustible force of desire which becomes the foundation of this material plane of existence, this is the attribute of manifesting.

After you have learned and integrated the first rule, to know exactly what you want and don’t want. The second rule to manifesting is the art of visualization. This is the ability to see, hear and feel what it is that you desire as though it was actually yours now. Whether it be the accumulation of an experience, a material acquisition or the accomplishment of fulfilling a sense gratification, visualizing your desired manifestation to the most minute detail will be of great benefit.

As it so that we are embodied in these temporary flesh vehicles what we can experience through them is defined with its inherent limitations. The body as a construct of Nature has its flaws as well as its strength, one of them being the power of the intellect. Through the intellect we imagine ourselves to be in accordance with the autonomous functions of the body we are designed for two primary factors, to survive and to procreate. This base understanding is imperative in seeing the potentials through which he has and can have.

By not only understanding but accepting the natural limitations of the body-mind as an apparatus we can now filter our intentions in their appropriate channels. As we allocate our intentions with their respective complementaries we can see what is indeed possible and what is not. This is not say that you must limit your intentions to just what you know can be done but if you want to manifest wings growing out of your back so that you can jump off a cliff and fly, that is an intention that will cause grievances.

You can spend a lifetime trying to imagine with all of your might, you may even undergo surgery in the most extreme case but you will not fly because the body was not designed in this manner. This is an intention limited by the confines of the natural body. The emphasis here is to be grounded in the specificity of your intentions. I don’t fancy using the common phrase of “being realistic” as we all possess different subjective interpretations of what reality is but it goes without saying that if you are intent on manifesting something that illicitly goes against the boundaries of the body, you will only create unnecessary suffering for yourself.

There are many beings that want to live off of nothing but air or make their body entirely made out of light or even those yogis who bounce up and down on mattress in the lotus position thinking that they can meditate while floating in the air. These are just a few examples of absolutely meaningless intentions that will not serve you nor enhance the overall quality of your life in the least but regardless of this fact, many will spend their lives trying to force something that isn’t meant to exist. It is for your own benefit, that you do not become one of them.

There is an element of being grounded in your intentions if you truly want to manifest them. If you are just looking at something to take your time or your sheer entertainment but no successful outcome then you are welcome to keep polishing the tile until it turns into a mirror. This is noted only to serve as a reminder to those who want to manifest an intention that lacks true depth and heartfelt cause. It is both in the mental sincerity through which you can imagine your intention and the power through which you can physically feel it coursing within your body, these attributes are necessary in the art of visualization.

“If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it. Any other form of existence will be yet another dull book in the library of life.”― Charles Bukowski

One of the primary methods in visualizing your intention is to physically see what is that you intend on manifesting every day. Take a photo, a drawing or even the words of your intention and place it in a location that you see every day. You can place it on the back of your door so that you can see it everytime you leave, you can place it on your mirror or bathroom mirror so that you can see it everytime that you see your beautiful face. The reasoning behind this act is that the constant repetition of visually observing your intention affects the conscious and subconscious parts of our mind.

To manifest my dreams into reality I create vision boards with images and illustrations of my intentions. Writing on pen and paper is another great method as it physically establishes the connection from mind to material, there is great power in the word. I have used these particular methods in the art of visualization for several years and it has reaped abundant rewards, from smaller intentions of obtaining material resources to bigger intentions such as world travel. With every successful experience in the fulfillment of your dreams, your ability to manifest will become stronger and stronger.

The metaphor of the iceberg appropriately explains this phenomenon of manifesting through visualisation. When you see the top of the iceberg, you are only seeing 20% of it. You can say that if our conscious mind, the part that does the logical present moment thinking is represented by 20% of the ice that is above water, then what is the rest of the submerged iceberg represent?

This is the subconscious mind which possesses the potentials, functions and capabilities of our unconscious. Every experience, thoughts and emotions that we experience is archived in the subconscious through repetition and emotion. When there is an emotion that is intense in nature, either through pain or pleasure, the strength of the impression is accompanied by thought and that thought is archived as a memory. The subconscious is responsible for the functions of our beating heart and bodily functions that occur autonomously without any effort on our part. By taking the initiative to become self aware of our actions, thoughts and intentions aspects of the subconscious can become conscious.

While there is a distinct difference between using our conscious and subconscious mind, they are often used interchangeably. Just as when we ride a bicycle, we use our conscious mind to properly navigate us in the correct direction but the automatic balancing of our bodies on the bike is a consequential action of the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is a manager at best, absent of any inference to discretion or direction.When we are aware of the present moment, we are using our conscious mind and through this synergy we can utilize the power of the subconscious and manifest incredible potentials that enhances the quality of living life awakened. ~ ༺ 𝓖
