Have you ever talked about someone or something that you haven’t thought about it in a while and then all of a sudden you see that person or that thing a few minutes or hours or days later? Maybe a friend or a celebrity or an object or product. You have a spontaneous thought about it, and/or talk about it with a friend, and then out of the blue you encounter that same thing in your day to day life without you actually having to do a thing. By various names it could be called instant or immediate or effortless manifestation. You didn’t lift a finger. No effort. It just appeared in your life or line of sight seemingly out of nowhere. Carl Jung referred to this phenomenon as Synchronicity.
Some people who are prone to a more logical pragmatist view of things will rush to dismiss events such as these as “coincidence”. But seeing that we have begun to discover through scientists specializing in physics that there may not be any accidents or coincidences in the universe, especially as it concerns sentient beings or to break it down even further, “consciousness”, we are not going to take the time here to debate the “coincidence versus created” argument. Instead we will continue presupposing that everything that happens to us in our day to day lives happens because WE created it, one way or another, whether consciously or unconsciously.
Besides the fact that science is now discovering and proving this to be true, there is an added bonus to this seemingly miraculous idea: it removes us from feeling like meaningless pinballs in a giant random and chaotic game with no meaning or significance and instead places us in a position of personal responsibility; it takes us out of a tendency toward victimhood and invites us to begin accepting that we may operate at a level with much more control over our reality AND more responsibility for how our day to day lives unfold.
It’s not important how or why we do this — psychic or telekinetic power, a sixth sense, invisible energy waves or particles that we’ve yet to discover. At this point both spiritual masters and scientists are beginning to understand that consciousness i.e. sentient beings, are creating nearly everything that they experience through some sort of power that has heretofore not yet been discovered. This discovery — a burgeoning field in the sciences that is just getting started; a long held belief taken as fact and for granted by spiritualists for tens of thousands of years — doesn’t have any room for coincidences.
What we are interested in here-now is HOW does this instant manifestation aspect of conscious creation take place? Why does it happen with some things and not with others? Why do some things in life seem so easy to create, as if by magic, and other experiences that we wish to create seem to take forever? No matter how much we want them and how long we work on creating them?
Observation: Most outcomes that are desired seem to possess a combination / or a ratio of desire for the outcome and resistance to the opposite of the outcome i.e. “I desire to make a lot of money. I resist not having a lot of money.” The experiences that we seem to create out of thin air with no effort whatsoever usually seem to manifest so easily because at the time that we thought of them or talked about them all we felt in that moment was curiosity and desire, and maybe some excitement and/or enthusiasm. We weren’t feeling any resistance. In fact these things are usually things that we don’t care too much about one way or another. No resistance. But sure enough BAM there it is a few minutes or hours or days later. Somehow we manifested it.
So therein seems to be the key to it. Our passion for it may be strong; or it may be slight. But it doesn’t feel like a matter of life or death to us. We feel the desire and curiosity for it (or why would we be talking about it?) But we possess very little resistance to it. Here we are talking about resistance as “resisting the opposite of what is desired”.
To be clear it is important to note that there is another type of resistance: resistance to what IS desired, (as opposed to “resistance to the opposite of what is desired” as discussed above). i.e. “I desire to make a lot of money. I resist being perceived as a rich arrogant snob.” This is a different kind of resistance. Obviously we have to discreate this resistance, to what is desired, if we ever want to create something desired in the first place. That’s a given; and not even of prime import regarding the subject of this exploration.
But what about the resistance that is simply the inverse of the desire? For example “I resist not having money” — the inverse of the desire to have money. It appears that if there is more free desire coupled with enthusiasm curiosity and excitement, without any attention on or awareness of the resistance portion (“I don’t want to/enjoy/like not having money”) then instant manifestation transpires much easier. As if by magic.
A real world example might look like this: “I don’t feel well. I’m afraid I might be getting sick. I don’t want to get sick.” This is resistance. This is the resistance portion of the desire/resistance ratio. If one is focused on only the resistance aspect of this ratio then they will naturally be attempting to manifest “I don’t want to get sick”. (As opposed to “I want to be healthy”).
Manifesting like this, manifestation from resistance-only is the most challenging and difficult path. The most difficult point of view to create from. We can greatly and immediately increase our potential to manifest by recognizing that we are presently feeling resistance, rather than desire, and attempting to create from that point of view. Then deliberately change our point of view towards the desire side instead i.e. “I want to look and feel healthy and strong.” So we do our best to discreate all of or as much of the resistance portion of our desire as possible; and increase JUST the desire + excitement / enthusiasm / curiosity portion.
If it’s possible it is optimal to only feel the desire side and none of the resistance side. Of course this all depends on what it is that we are trying to create. If it’s something we perceive as being disturbing or frightening or threatening — getting sick and dying, or going broke and having to file bankrupcy– then we may be at first only aware of the resistance we are feeling i.e. “I don’t want to be sick” or “I don’t want to go broke”.
(At this point it is paramount that we remember and acknowledge that WE are the ones creating how we feel and what we feel. We are not victims of what or how we feel. We are the creators of it. As we become more adept at (using whatever tools we have in our toolbox or at our disposal), to deliberately change what and how we feel, it becomes easier and easier to shift our viewpoint from resistance to desire. Especially once 1 – we become used to being able to remember that it is we and only we who are responsible for how and what we feel and 2 – we have the experience a few times of being able to make this shift; once it becomes second nature to us. Soon it becomes effortless, no more difficult than flipping a switch on or off.)
Perhaps there are times in life where we find that certain things (experiences) render it nearly impossible for us to completely discreate the resistance portion of our desire. We find that we just cannot discreate the resistance 100%. That’s okay. The key is to increase the desire portion as much as possible while simultaneously decreasing the resistance, i.e. we deliberately shift our attention from “I don’t want to be sick” to “I really want / would love to feel healthy and strong, vibrant and powerful.” The resistance is still there.
(Again this is not a given. There is no rule that says that we HAVE to feel resistance. No matter what we are talking about. How much resistance we feel towards anything is up to us. A combination of nature and nurture (how and where and by whom we were raised, and genetics), past experience (how much or how little experience we have with what is desired or resisted (and how we perceived and processed it), inner power, strength of will, practice (based on past experience), self discipline (how adept we are at deliberately controlling our attention thoughts or feelings), and most importantly our own personal set of beliefs about whatever it is that we are desiring or resisting. (None of us feel the same level of desire or resistance for the same things (experiences) in life. That’s up to us, up to each individual.
Some people perhaps have no resistance to being sick. When they were sick as children for example their mom let them stay home from school for a few days, tucked them into bed and made them chicken noodle soup and pampered them. So feeling sick may be a drag. But they view it as “a good opportunity to get some rest”.))
For someone in the above example there is no reason (no universal law written in stone) that they need to feel ANY resistance at all if they want to create feeling well. They can if they so choose immediately shift their attention to 100% desire to feeling well, to something like “being sick is no big deal but to be honest today I really just want to feel strong and healthy”. Total desire. No resistance to being sick. Just a strong desire to be healthy.
This is optimal. We’re making note of it here because it’s important to acknowledge that resistance is not mandatory. We’re not obligated to feel it or operate from it. If you don’t feel any, don’t go looking for it. If it’s not there then it’s not there. Getting to the level of being able to easily shift from resistance to something to feeling desire for the opposite of that same thing is the key.
But what about those cases mentioned above where no matter how hard we try we just can’t seem to be able to shift 100% of our attention from the resistance portion. One of those things (experiences) that we find disturbing challenging frightening or threatening. In these cases the key is to just try to flip the scale as much toward the desire side as possible. Increase the desire to resistance ratio.
It’s important to note that getting rid of the resistance portion completely is not essential. If it’s there, it’s there. Acknowledge it. Discreate it or as much of it as you can. (Again, by using whatever tools you’ve learned and find work best for you. It could be Avatar — this is what I personally find works best for me, or meditation or yoga or NLP or the Sedona Method / Release Technique or an immersion/abstinence technique or creative visualization or affirmations or even prayer.)
Then start deliberately increasing the desire portion (feeling desire for the opposite of whatever you are resisting), and then in addition add some curiosity (“hhhmmmm why have I created getting sick? Isn’t that interesting? I wonder how fast I can create getting well again?”), then some excitement and enthusiasm (“Wow I can’t wait to feel strong and healthy! That’s going to be awesome! Gosh think of all the cool things I could do as soon as I feel strong and healthy!”)
Now you’ve flipped the scale towards feeling much more desire for what you want rather than feeling resistance towards what you don’t want (it’s opposite or inverse). From that viewpoint it appears that instant manifestation becomes very easy. To the point where all we have to do is think about something, or talk about it, and BAM we see it manifest.
(Consider the case where someone is feeling a little under the weather and they just casually remark “I’m sure I’ll feel better tomorrow. I always do”. And sure enough they do. Why? Because there was very little attention on resisting anything. Instead they just have a desire to be well.)
Next time you find yourself experiencing one of those “coincidental events” where something or someone that you’ve just thought about or talked about mysteriously appears, acknowledge it and immediately try to remember what and how you were feeling when you were last talking or thinking about it. Make note of it. Chances are it will fit this mold explored and discussed above. By applying these observations to bigger things, experiences or desired outcomes that we deem to be “very important” to us, we can greatly increase our ability to manifest them.
