Manifestation 101: Diluting Your Desire

Seed Sprouting

This is usually a hard lesson when you first learn it.  And although nothing and no one “makes” you mad, I might stimulate your anger here because, when we’ve been  hiding something from ourselves, by default we project our anger at ourselves onto whomever is stimulating that anger in the present moment.  That aside, let’s get started.  And I’ll keep it quick and easy, down and dirty, so that you can digest it bite-size as a nugget of truth.

At every given moment, we always have in our lives exactly what is in our minds.  That is metaphysics 101, with metaphysics being the underlying cause of how everything works in the universe.  The reason we don’t believe this is that we aren’t aware of everything that we hide from ourselves deep in the recesses of our minds.  In my case, that used to be an unconscious belief that there was something wrong with me, so every time I tried to manifest something I had co-mingled in that desire all of the fear-based ideas about myself and life that I was defending against in my mind.  Something wrong with me meant that I didn’t believe I was worthy of anything “right” or “good” and to get close to anything “right” or “good” stimulated fear in me that I wouldn’t be able to handle it because I was “wrong” and “bad”.  So if I wanted a new car or a better job or a loving relationship, I was also putting out to the universe, from the beacon of my mind, that I wasn’t worthy of receiving what I thought I wanted.  Most of you have heard this story before, in one form or another.

So in my example above, what I was manifesting was a diluted version of what I thought I was asking for.  My conscious desire for something was diluted by my unconscious desire not to have something.  As a math formula, it might look something like this:  conscious desire – unconscious desire = manifestation.

The question then becomes:  “What are you hiding from yourself?”  The answer to that question is to look at what is in your life and that will tell you what is in your mind.  It might take a little while, and maybe some help from a friend, but if your desire for truth is strong enough, you will begin to see what you’ve been hiding from yourself by following the bread crumbs, so to speak, of your life back into your mind.

The anger part is when you finally realize that, by holding on with a life-or-death fervor to a false belief about yourself, you have actively been keeping that false belief about yourself alive.  And, in doing so, with every fiber of your being you have been virtually saying to yourself and to the universe, “This is what I want!”  You have made the false belief a part of you and it literally exudes vibrational energy on an ongoing basis out into the universe which attracts back to you the physical form of that belief.

I know this may sound like a commercial, but since everything I do is integrated into the one purpose of my life, which is awakening to and sharing truth, I will share with you that these ideas were encapsulated into my deceased co-author’s (Barbara) and my first book, The Energy of Life, back in 1995.  It’s in its third printing now and I’ve just updated it into, The Energy of Life:  A Guide to Practical Spirituality, so that you can have a tool to use to manifest what it is that you really want into your life.

  1. Needed to put you a very small word to help thank you so much the moment again for your personal fantastic guidelines you have discussed on this page. It has been quite open-handed with you to allow unhampered what a few individuals would have sold as an ebook to make some bucks on their own, and in particular given that you might have tried it if you desired. These basics additionally acted like the good way to comprehend other people have the same fervor similar to mine to learn way more with respect to this issue.

  2. I agree, although outwardly I may state I want something better in my life, a deep mostly subconscious fear/anxiety/low self esteem often sidetracks me and I find the opposite of what I would like to have. I have often understood this as being caused by my need to continue working on unresolved issues and continue to place myself in situations where I have a choice to react/feel the same or learn something and move out of that situation, eradicating it from my future choices as well.

    1. Well said, Rachel! What is usually underneath what you have described is our belief that we have to fix ourselves in order to be worthy of what we want. The truth is, we already are the magnificent expression of our Source as us and that perfection remains always.

      We do have, however, a self-created image of who we believe we are and that belief is what our ego is. It’s not really real, it’s only a belief, but we believe it is us and have created an elaborate system of beliefs and strategies about how to protect ourselves, and get what we want, in the world.

      Consequently, when we move into releasing that belief about ourself, our ego resists that strongly and the movement into creating something new then feels like an aversion to something we don’t want, instead of an attraction to something we do want. It is that mixed energy, the conflicted beliefs, that causes us to manifest a diluted version of what we thought we wanted. We wanted the new thing, person, circumstance, but at deeper levels we want to hold onto our ego, the core belief of what we think we are, and that more powerful belief, the energy of that, is more strongly reflected in the manifestation than the purity of the new desire for something or someone new.

      Please feel free to communicate with me about this, Rachel, at your leisure. This venue is fine or feel free to email me:

      In the purity of desire,
