Notice what thoughts come up that are not in alignment with what you want.
Take some time to address each of those thoughts and/or beliefs. Keep working with them until they shift so that you have the alignment you want. These thoughts & beliefs will either shift, or you will need to let go of them completely.
Be honest with yourself.
Write about you want some more. Draw it, paint it, collage it, dance it or move your body in some way to express it.
Check in with yourself about whether there is any background thoughts or beliefs that could get in the way. It's important to do this because when you put your statement out to the universe about what you want, if there are any background thoughts or beliefs that are not in alignment, they will get sent out to the universe as well, which will create a mixed message and in return, you will receive a mixed delivery. SO, taking the time to scan yourself again and again is very important. Doing the work that is needed to completely clear yourself is important. Waiting to put your message out to the universe is key so that the delivery is truly what you want.
Continue to write it, draw it, paint it, collage it, move your body to express it! Keep noticing the alignment of what you say you want and what your thoughts and beliefs are saying.
Once you are very clear, put your wish out to the universe.
State it (out loud).
Do it in an action.
When you state it, do it simply and clearly. DON'T say "and" this "and" that "and" ...... because that creates a mixed message. Just simply state "this is what I want" BOOM.
Let me give you an example. Let's say you want to manifest a place to live. You've already worked out all the thoughts and believes that aren't in alignment, such as: I can't afford it, I don't have enough money, I don't deserve that kind of place, I never had that before, This is good enough. (etc).
Some of the ways to work out those kind of thoughts are ~ collage the belief, notice where it came from (does it even make sense in the present time?), Notice if it is even yours (a parent's belief, a friend's belief). Dance the belief and allow your body to keep moving until a shift occurs, read positive thinking books, write about it until it shifts, or work with a therapist if you need help dealing with it, processing it, and shifting it for real.
Universe, I want a new place to live that is in (town) close to downtown, but with a country feeling. And I want it to have 3 bedrooms, a balcony, a yard, a dishwasher, allow all pets, and have compatible neighbors. I want this to happen by the end of this month. So be it.
BOOM. That's it.
Your job now, is to let go. Surrender. Trust that it will come.
