The Secret to Manifesting Your Desires

Written by Raymond Salas

Do you really want to know how to manifest your desires?

Have you tried many techniques but nothing has changed for you?

Are you looking for something that actually works?

If you answered "yes" to any or all of these questions, I can relate.

I have felt like this before, until I came across a realization that changed everything for me.

So, what is this "secret" to manifesting your desires?

The Secret to Manifesting Your Desires

The secret to manifesting your desires is: Tell a different story, a story of what you want and stop telling the story of what you don't want (e.g. complaining, blaming, worrying, etc.).

Sounds simple, right?

is simple. Simple, yet powerful.

In fact, it's the most powerful thing you can do to manifest your desires.

The power comes from one simple truth: You get what you think about (whether you want it or not).

"There is no problem without a mental story around your circumstances."  
- Eckhart Tolle

Sorry, there's no way around this one because...

"The Law of Attraction brings you more of whatever you give your attention, energy, and focus to."  
- Michael Losier

The Benefit of Telling the Story of What You Want

The greatest benefit of telling the story of what you want is that it feels good to do it.

Why is this so powerful?

Because your feelings always energize the thoughts of what you want. Therefore, you will manifest your desires faster...sometimes even experience instant manifestation by focusing your energy in this way.

"You must find a way of feeling the excitement or satisfaction of your currently unrealized dreams before those dreams can become your reality. You have to tell a different story. You have to begin to tell the story of your life as you now want it to be and discontinue the tales of how it has been or of how it is. You are never only telling the story of 'how it is now.' You are also telling the story of the future experience that you are creating right now."  
- Abraham-Hicks

Just like planting seeds, all the stories that you're telling yourself (or others) right now are creating future experiences (wanted or not).

If you're worried about the "bad" seeds you may have "planted" in the past, there is a remedy:

The Key to Applying the Secret of Manifesting Your Desires

The key to applying the secret of manifesting your desires begins with one simple question. 
Ask yourself now: "Am I willing to let go of ALL of the stories of EVERYTHING I don't want, everything that doesn't feel good to me, starting now?"

In other words:

  • Am I willing to stop complaining? gossiping? worrying?
  • Am I willing to stop "telling it like it is," keeping it "real," if it doesn't feel good to do so?
  • Am I willing to stop seeing myself as a victim, at the effect of anything or anyone outside of myself?
  • Am I willing to stop blaming, attacking, or making others wrong for any or all areas of my life? (see "The Power of Forgiveness")
  • Am I willing to stop focusing on everything that doesn't feel good (yes, everything!) starting now?

A simple "yes" or "no" answer to these questions will do. No "yes, buts." No explanations are necessary (even if you feel justified in your reasoning).

And if you feel like this is all too much to handle (as in "a big load of crap") or you can't do this (as in "no way in hell"), let me ask you this:

"Do you want to be right or happy?"

It's your choice.

Personally, I choose to be happy. 
So, either you're willing to let go of the stories, attention, energy, and focus on everything you don't want or you're not. Simple.

I know this may sound a bit harsh, drastic or crazy to some (or many), but no one can escape or avoid the universal truth that we each get what we think about (i.e., give our attention, energy, or focus to). Period.

How to Apply the Secret to Manifesting Your Desires

Okay, then.

How do you apply the secret to manifesting your desires? 

Where do you begin?

Here's how:

"Start telling a more positive, better-feeling story about your life and the things that are important to you.

Do not write (or tell) your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before your eyes, but it is not by magic. It is by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate alignment with those Laws." 

- Abraham-Hicks

And, the best news of all is that you and only you get to decide what the content of your "new" story is. 
My main recommendation here is: Do not seek the approval of others. They do not need to believe in the story of what you want or desire. Only you do. So, stop trying to convince others. It is wasted effort.

"You do not need everyone or anyone else to align with your desire—only you need to align with your desire." 

- Abraham-Hicks

Attempting to convince others of your point of view is wasted effort because you are obviously not convinced of it yourself.

start with you. Tell the story of what you want to yourself. Then, when you truly believe it, your story will manifest and you'll be living it. You'll become it.

"I just pretended I was someone else until that someone else became me."
