Manifesting has become a popular buzzword. What does it mean? Making your dream a reality? Yes, absolutely. Are we making this dream a reality…yes! Is it hard work and perseverance and belief? Yes and yes and yes!

What I’m going to tell you right now is a big secret of successful people. Successful people know that if they make a very specific request of what some call the Universe, the Universe will respond with the “how to” information. It will do this by placing the right people, circumstances or information into our view and it will be up to us to receive that information. It is up to each and everyone of us and we need to remind our “creative mind” to make those requests.
How do you make such a request? Focus on what you want without reservation.

Write it, see it, listen to it; anyway that you can communicate to your creative universe your heart’s desire. Then, end your communication with the universe by releasing your request. and then leaving it up to the universe to take care of how your wish is delivered, is the key to this kind of manifestation. It all seems so contrary…work so hard and then let it go…

The truth is you and I have a very limited knowledge of “how” things are actually done. If it was completely left up to us to figure it out, we would not be learning new methods, but instead having to draw upon our own limited experiences, which could make success take a very long time.

For this reason, I leave my ego at the door and make specific requests of the Universe often. Not all my requests are fulfilled, and I have come to understand, as I hope you will too, that when my requests are unanswered, it is always for a reason that has my best interests in mind.

So how does it work? There are basically six steps to manifesting what you want:

1. Make a decision to have what you want, when you want it.
This is deceptively simple. It would seem that making the decision to have whatever you want would be easy, but it is not that simple. You must be resolute, and allow no one (not even yourself) to undermine your confidence in your decision.

2. Be clear about the outcome.
The next step is to be extremely clear about the details of the outcome. You must visualize the money, the bank statements, investments or just plain truckloads of money arriving into your life. Visualize the clients, the programs, the radio shows the countries we will speak in ..the lives that will be changed.

3. Detach from the process.
One thing that holds many people back is not knowing “how” to do something. Forget it. The “how to do it” instructions will appear after you have clearly defined what you want.

Detachment comes in the place that I refer to as the wisdom of uncertainty. Knowing, believing that all is in right order. You are either in belief or doubt. Faith and real belief are the most powerful creative forces at work. When you are attached to the outcome in a certain way, it carries the seeds of disbelief. Through adversity come the seeds of great achievement…hold your vision, stay in belief, remain unattached to the outcome. When you can truly detach and surrender, that is where the magic lives. Surrender is the simple but profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing the flow of life. To surrender is to accept the present moment unconditionally and without reservation. Emotional negativity can become particularly pronounced when things “go wrong”. And things will “go wrong” from time to time. It is ever so important at these times that you stay focused on the vision, stay in your belief and surrender. Surrender is not giving up, it is joining forces with the creative flow of life.

Belief, also referred to as faith, is by far the most powerful and creative force in the universe.

4. Expect that it will happen.
Once you are decisive and clear about what you want and not trying to control the process, set an expectation that what you want will in fact appear. It may not appear in the way you thought or at the precise time. In fact, it may not appear at all! Possibilities you thought were a sure thing may disappear. You may even experience frustration, anxiety or impatience trying to control the outcome. Ask yourself “What lesson could I learn from this experience?” and turn it into a personal growth opportunity.

5. Be Open To Possibility
As I mentioned in the last step, the path to the outcome may (and probably will) show up in ways you never imagined before. It is your job to explore possibility. Suspend judgment of how things should be done based on your past experiences and ask yourself “Is the situation, person or resource that is in front of me supposed to help me on my journey?” “If so, how?” When you ask the question, you will be given the answers – one step at a time.

6. Practice Gratitude.
Are you thankful for the things you have in your life right now? Do you look at your challenges as opportunities to grow or burdens that need to be eliminated? When you practice being thankful for specific events in your life, including the burdens, even when you don’t understand why they appear in your life, your ability to manifest accelerates almost to the speed of thought.

It isn’t always necessary or advisable to try to change every challenge in your life. Some are there as lessons for you. If all efforts to change something seem to be ineffective, try asking, “How does this situation benefit me?” It is not only a much more positive way to approach a challenge, but a much more insightful one as well. Many times, the answer at the moment is just to trust. Say, “I don’t know, but the situation will serve a purpose in the future.” Chances are it will.

Practicing these steps means taking action, being consistent and being open to change. Getting what you want is not always easy. Challenges occur. Emotions, other people’s negative views and comments set you back. But in the end, it all comes back down to your choice. Choose to get what you want, stay focused, be in your belief, never give up and it will happen for you.
