“Defenses are but foolish guardians of mad illusions.”—Course in Miracles
I have four main intentions: peace of mind, surety of purpose, clear, unmistakable guidance and unceasing joy. I used to keep that last intention to myself. People tended to think it was foolhardy and not at all possible.
“What?” they’d mock. “How can anybody be joyful 24/7?”
What I now know is that any other goal is simply irresponsible.
Our only function here on Planet Earth is to having a rollicking good time. I mean, we are meant to laugh and have fun and enjoy ourselves at every moment. And I refuse to feel guilty for proclaiming that.
Recently, I’ve been getting emails from people wanting more tips on how to manifest, how to kick their natural, create-their-dreams skills into high gear.
So, here are the three best techniques I can offer for letting go and letting your every intention happen:
1. Focus on the end result. Period. Do not give any air-time in your thoughts–and especially your feelings–to the way it appears now. What appears now is history. It only appears that way because you think about it. You don’t even need to worry about how you’re going to get to where you want to be. In fact, one of our biggest stumbling blocks is obsessing about the process for getting to your goal. It is irrelevant. Just keep focusing on where you want to be. Tune in to that reality just like you tune into your favorite radio station. Ignore the other channels. Ignore what appears so real now. Again, it’s only “real” until you get clear focus on where you want to be.
2. Live by Bobby McFerrin’s mantra: “Don’t worry. Be happy.” The more joy you can have in your life, the wider the door opens for life’s largesse to flow in. The only person who can erect walls that keep it away is you. If you’re in a state of perpetual joy (again, this is your natural, God-given state), all the security forces in the U.S. Army can’t keep it away.
3. Throw this phrase overboard: “It’s hard.” Do you know how often I hear this from people, even people who know good and well how to manifest? I even hear myself saying it sometimes. But the moment I catch myself, I turn it around immediately and remember that it’s my choice. Life can be hard, complicated and difficult to manage. Or it can be a pleasure trip down easy street. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, affirm often that it’s easy to get there. The only reason life is anything but a piece of cake is our focus on hardship.
