Manifesting, as defined by Dr. Judi Neal in her book “Edgewalkers” is “The ability to try what hasn’t been tried before, to trust your instincts, and to break new ground.” Manifesting is one of the five Edgewalker Skills that can be developed step-by-step through training, attention and practice. It is one of the ‘doing’ elements of Edgewalkers that has been identified – the actions, behaviors, and skills that help an individual or an organization to function on the leading edge.
Manifestation is bringing something tangible into your life through attraction and belief – if you think it, it will come. However, there is more to manifestation than positive thinking and willpower via your thoughts, beliefs, actions and emotions. Magical Manifesting begins when you realize and apply the Universal Law “What You Focus on Expands” and continues with the Law of Attraction “Energy Follows Thought”. The exciting truth is Law of Attraction knows no bounds and manifestation can be wide-reaching in all areas of your life. Once you start “Mastering the Magic of Manifesting” there’s no limit to what—or how often or how much—you can manifest.
Often what is stopping you from manifesting your dreams is you. Self-Awareness is essential in changing your mindset and behaviors. You will need to stay focused and remove any obstacles which may cloud your vision, including fear and negative self-talk. For example, if you often find yourself questioning your worth or saying “I don’t deserve this,” think of all the reasons why you are worthy and deserving. It is also important to focus on what you have, not what you don’t have.
The good news is you have the power, the “magic wand”, to manifest your dreams and desires. An exciting and life-changing result of my Edgewalker journey has been “Mastering the Magic of Manifesting.” I focus my attention on what I want, knowing that I DO create my reality by choosing to consciously co-create with Spirit. I connect with and trust my intuition and take inspired action that results in breaking new ground in manifesting my dreams and desires. I always ask for the Highest Good and Divine Right Timing for myself and all involved. I am open and expectant to “This or something better” as the Universe often has a bigger plan, more creative outcome and unexpected surprises that I could never imagine with my conscious mind and limited perspective. I remember that the “Universe Handles the Details”. The how is none of my business. My focus is on what I want (NOT what I don’t want).
To begin manifesting be clear about your goals, dreams, your heart’s desires. Everyone is unique and approaches manifestation differently. Honor what feels best for you. The more clear and concise you can be, the better. You need to ask the Universe for what you want once you’ve identified exactly what your hopes, dreams, and goals are. You can write a letter to the Universe, or speak your intentions out loud, do a ritual, or create a vision board with images, phrases and photos that speak to you. Use visual tools to keep you driven and focused. Once you ask the Universe for what you want keep an eye out for signs of achievement or success.
Knowing what you want is half the battle and taking action is key as you will not see any results without action. As an Edgewalker coach I often ask my clients the question, “Where do you see and feel yourself a year from now.” I support them in imagining and envisioning their future self. Reframing your mindset this way will enable you to be successful. Act as if, fake it to you make it. ‘Being’ the person who already has, does, and feels your dreams, desires and goals helps you become that person and magnetically attracts to you what you want to manifest. Gratitude is key. While you may not get everything you envision in the order and time frame you want, however you should receive and acknowledge what you do get. Be grateful for what is on the way and mindful and thankful for what you do receive.
“Magical Manifesting” is a fluid process. To be a “Master Magician” you must be flexible. Faith is a guiding force and a powerful motivator. Work towards your goals and remain receptive. The steps you take do not matter as much as your belief, so trust your actions, visions, and clarity as well as the ‘Powers that be.’ If you see it and feel it, you will achieve it. The easiest way to manifest anything is to be clear about what you want. Don’t give the universe mixed signals… and take action. What you can visualize in your mind, you can hold in your hands. Use your magic wand! You have manifesting to do!
