Spiritual lifestyle advice and guidance for modern women from bestselling author Alice Grist.
Manifestation is a spiritual 'tool' I take with a pinch of salt. I believe it happens. I believe it works. I also believe that sometimes it isn't so simple.
It reels you in. In the beginning. Manifestation can happen in impressive and unexpected ways. You can bring on that new car, that moment, that job... Of course you can. But there is a deeper reason that this attraction works. So that you see a bigger picture. It's a treat given to you on the premise that you realise there is so much more to this life. And from there, you launch. Manifestation is but a clue, a hint, at a much, much bigger animal.
So if you don't take the clue, or the hint, and you just continue onward in some kind of manifestation daze, It dries up. Suddenly the material wants are no longer happening. The desire for more, becomes just that; a leach like desire on your soul.
It was never about the creation or accumulation of things. That was just a fancy trick the universe played to keep you keen. So when you don't applaud the magician, and when you don't get loyal to the magic behind the trick, the trick dies...
So how do you manifest when your manifestation skill has dried up? I'll tell you how. You do the opposite of manifestation. You give. You give your fucking heart out. And you commit to something that stirs your soul. And you believe. In something more. Call it what you want. You find a faith, your faith and you shift it through your veins in a chaotic and change bringing stab at enlightenment. Over and over again. You assimilate the lessons, you forgive, you move on, you get better. And then you keep doing this. Slowly the desire to manifest is replaced by a desire to be real, to have purpose, to give purpose, to provide, to be a part, to turn the wheel, to be of service.
At this point you may be lucky enough to manifest again. But it is different. It means more. It is people and love and spirit. The reasons you do so no longer matter. It becomes a perk of the ride. It is no longer the ride. It becomes real, it becomes true, as you do. Herein lays it's power.
