Someone recently asked me why terrible things seem to always happen to him. I explained to him that his thoughts and emotions determine everything in his world. But one must be careful of their thoughts.
If one thinks the world is shit and everyone conspires against them, the universe will return to him more scenarios where those values are reinforced. If one is grateful for everything they have, even if they have nothing, the universe will return to them more things for which to be grateful.
If one performs actions to avoid certain things, they must not dwell on them. If you are trying to avoid illness, for instance, you wouldn’t constantly think, “I eat this way not to get sick. I don’t want cancer. I can’t keep getting sick and miss work.” The universe is quite literal. It will take you at your word, or actually, your thoughts. But the universe ignores certain words or concepts. It seems to want to disregard words like won’t, can’t or don’t. It appears to only listen to the concepts of illness, cancer, and sick. This is the concept around which you center your thoughts, and the universe complies. It will return sickness to you, as you requested with your own thoughts of illness.
One meets his fate on the path he chose to avoid it.
Conversely, the universe takes other phrases quite literally.
Let’s say you run a small business and you wish to be more successful than you are. Or that you really want that promotion at work. Or that you really need a new car but can’t currently afford one. If you center your thoughts around wanting something, needing something, or will do something, the universe will continue to keep that thing as a future possibility. If you want something, the universe will continue to keep it just outside your grasp, so you’ll continue to want it.
In order to manifest the future of your desires, one must feel it as if it has already happened. Generate the feeling of having already attained it. Live as if it is already yours.
I’ll give you an example.
In 2012, I was working as a motor patrol officer on our local police department. A detective position opened in Financial Crimes, a job I had wanted since joining the department. It was a coveted position for those so inclined. It was Monday through Friday, holidays and weekends off, offered a take home unmarked vehicle, and an eight percent raise. I really wanted this job. I needed this job.
So I began to truly believe I already had the job. I deeply felt the job was mine. I walked by the office every day after work and looked at that empty desk. I would go into the office several times a week. I stared at that desk and imagined myself working there every day. I never allowed thoughts of wanting the job to enter my conscious mind. I had the job. I would look at the desk and picture how I would arrange my work and personal things. The phone was in the wrong place, papers were scattered and messy, staplers and hole punches were strewn about. I mentally rearranged everything on the desk, putting items where they belonged. I then asked other detectives how to create a felony case file, what kinds of crimes they worked and how they went about working the cases. I would go home and quietly imagine myself sitting at the desk I had memorized, putting files together, interviewing people, making phone calls, going to the coffee maker, etc. I lived the job like it was already mine, because in my mind, it was.
I got the job. Seven and a half years later, I retired.
Matt Furey released a book based on Maxwell Maltz’s works called “Theater of the Mind.” Furey had been using Theater of the Mind concepts for decades before encountering Maxwell Maltz’s works. He was so moved by the coalescence of the concepts that he purchased the rights to the entire collection of works.
When one wants to manifest a certain outcome, he sits quietly and centers his breath. He then quiets the mind and begins to relax his body. Then he reaches back to his past accomplishments, a time when he felt good about having, gaining, making, earning, or winning something. He relives that moment and recreates the feeling surrounding that event. Then he begins to play his current situation as a movie on a movie screen in his mind. The good feeling created and applied to the current situation sends a message to the universe that you already maintain wonderful feelings about having already realized that desire.
Chuck Norris did this during his days as a tournament fighter. He would train vigorously and consistently, then spend just as much time visualizing the future fight. After having reviewed his opponent’s past fight tapes, he would apply those concepts, moves, and tendencies to the future fight he had created on the movie screen in his mind. In his mind, he had a perfect counter to every one of his opponent’s moves. Obviously, he pictured himself winning every one of his imagined fights against his upcoming match. He became a champion and held his record for years until working his way into action films. At 83 years old, he still trains every day.
Create your future. Manifest your desires. Conjure your success.
Don’t think about it as a future thing that might happen someday, but feel it as though it has already happened exactly as you desire.
Do this, and manifest the best version of you.
All the best,
