More often than not if you’re like many people you truly do not focus on what you want in life.
Are you concentrating on what you desire in life from your innermost-core and trusting the universe to lead the way?
To manifest precisely what you actually want means much more than simple visualization.
Imagine you’re gladly driving down a road through the woods on a clear, bright day.
All of a sudden a chartered travel bus crosses the center line and is heading right at you. In this minute, your life depends on where you focus.
Expert driving instructors tell us that what individuals typically carry out in emergency scenarios is to stay concentrated on the item they are attempting to prevent.
In driving, where your eyes and mind are focused is frequently where you will lead yourself to.
So what’s involved to focus on what you want?
The Course in Miracles teaches us this below through its many spiritual metaphysical lessons and principles:
- Within you now and always is the unborn possibility of a limitless experience of inner stability and outer treasure, and yours is the privilege of giving birth to it…
Sadly, if you were focused on the bus in the circumstance above you would likely steer right into it.
The route to security is to concentrate on where you want to go. In this case, you’d look away from the bus to a location that’s more secure.
You would then instantly guide the automobile because instructions. Safe!
You may be wondering, “What the heck does that pertain to developing more pleasure, passion, and purpose in my life?”
My reaction is “A good deal!” As in the example of the bus, your life depends upon where you focus.
Concentrating on What You Don’t Want Steers You to More of That
Often when we are feeling stuck, disappointed, baffled, or dissatisfied we are focused on what we DON’T desire. We are taking a look at the bus we’d like to avoid.
We’re thinking or saying: “I do not wish to remain in this miserable career another day.” Or, “I do not want to work on this project” or “I don’t want to have fish again for supper tonight.”
(Also when you’re finished here or in between, hop over to to this related review article I’d done on manifesting what you want.)
From the huge occasions to the small details in life, we tend to put a great deal of our thoughts and attention on specifically what we do not desire.
So, what’s the problem with that?
Well, it’s like guiding your car into that bus. The more you concentrate on what you do not desire, the more you head in that direction.
Your mind is wired to produce when you focus on what you want.
My friend Wayne Dyer’s many books including my favorite, Real Magic, and many others, too, are traditional books on this subject.
Even back to Nietzsche, Carl Jung, and again countless others, have informed us that the mind can’t discriminate.
I mean between something you’re thinking about that you want and something you’re thinking of that you do not want.
These Masters including Jesus wanted us to learn one easy thing. It’s that while we’re in this world whatever you think about, your mind goes to work to make that occur.
Getting More of What You Really Do Want
If you’d like to get more of what you desire in life (enjoyment, passion, purpose), shift your focus away from what you do not desire.
Yes, and clearly, purposefully towards what you do desire. Your mind will go to work developing that. You’ll get unstuck.
Here’s a current personal example.
At the end of a long day, I was preparing supper. I ‘d been grocery shopping and had the ingredients for three complex dishes I had not made before.
Then I began saying to myself, “I do not want to make these dishes. I don’t desire these dishes to be so complex.”
Those ideas increased my agitation. I felt upset and stuck.
The answer was: “I wish to make a fantastic and healthy tasting supper in such a way that is fast and simple for me.”
I quickly saw an option I ‘d been unable to see minutes before.
It was to make only one of the dishes that night along with an easy salad. Then, have the other new recipes for another evening.
The cooking was less difficult and the food turned out fantastic. I switched from what I didn’t want to what I did want.
Are you focused on what you want or what you don’t want?
I know lots of (perhaps most) people have an ingrained routine pattern that focuses us on what we don’t want.
Changing this pattern can be difficult when you’re not able to focus on what you want. And I’ve seen with myself and my readers that it’s definitely worth doing!
The more you concentrate on what you do desire, the more enthusiasm, enjoyment, and ‘know-how’ you will develop in your life.
Concentrate on the clear roadway ahead, not on the bus coming at you.
Give this following power of visualization idea a “good old college try.”
- When you’re feeling stuck, worried, anxious, angry, unhappy, or upset, end up being mindful of what you’re concentrating on.
You might be focusing on precisely what you do not want.
- As quickly as you observe you’re concentrating on what you DON’T desire, ask yourself, “What DO I desire in this scenario?”.
Focus on what is in your heart!
- With the power of intent alter your focus to and keep your concentrate on what you do want.
Repeat as needed.
The route to security is to focus on what you want and where you want to go. The more you think about what you do not want, the more you head in that direction.
I changed from what I didn’t desire to what I did want. I understand many (maybe most) of us have a deep-rooted habit pattern that focuses us on what we do not desire.
The more you focus on what you do desire, the more satisfaction, function, and passion you will develop in your life.
(I suggest another related article on: as a massive component of identifying why your Creator wills that you know your purpose is living according to what inspires you.)
Next, let’s look at what you never were taught in your school days about creating the life you want.
Were we Taught to Truly Focus on What you Want?
As more and more people are getting interested in the law of attraction there are an increasing number of individuals who question that it works.
Someone asked me just recently, “Is this manifesting thing a joke?”
No it’s not a joke, it is one of a number of universal laws which assist to create a great balance.
The Course in Miracles also helps us see that:
- Expect your every need to be met. Yes, expect a solution to every problem. Expect to grow spiritually. Expect abundance on every level.
With a lot of individuals having difficulty in getting success with understanding the real universe, I could see something.
It is much more plainly how misleading “the secret” theater screen has actually been.
Then for others it has actually fallen short of exposing the real tricks to manifesting, if it is not misleading to you.
The secret theater screen in your mind tells you do picture and feel that you currently have the important things.
I mean that you want and then take ideal action and you will get it by learning how to focus on what you want.
Less than one percent of people understand how to properly learn presence and inner power principles.
Second of all many people do not understand the right state of mind which you absolutely need to go into in order to make quick modifications.
The right-minded favorable thinking few individuals understand the deeper factor for favorable thinking.
Both favorable thinking and visualization have their base in thought. It is essential to understand the nature of idea initially.
If you comprehend at its micro or subatomic level you will rapidly come to manifest precisely what you desire.
The law of manifestation needs that you comprehend how to direct thoughts to the material world.
Yes, for what you desire!
Many individuals encounter different blocks in using the power of reflection and aligning to the universe.
You can discover numerous tools and teaching that will advise you on simply how to get rid of one issue or another.
You know, which holds you back from manifesting what you desire.
Nevertheless I have discovered that the most effective strategies are those found in old mystical teachings.
Many years ago when the science of thought and focus on what you want was too shallow.
I’m saying, was being taught by mentors and teachers who were basic on the practices and development.
Much of those ancient mentors would do well for today in assisting others to remain simple. Yes, and deal with the developmental part of attracting.
You need to ask yourself how prepared are you to take the steps needed to master to manifest what you want?
Are you prepared to quit and disbelieve, or are you going to believe that there are a few things which you must discover in order to really master the law of manifesting?
It is what the Creation is all about!
As more and more individuals are getting interested in the real power of the universe there are an increasing number of individuals who question that it works.
If you understand thought at its subatomic level you will quickly come to comprehend how to direct it to manifest precisely what you desire.
Lots of individuals come upon numerous hurdles in applying the power of visualization to their lives.
You can find lots of teaching tools that will instruct you on just how to get rid of one issue or another which holds you back from manifesting what you desire.
(Here’s another related article on: how to make things happen and naturally manifest your desires:)
Next, I want to briefly explain why it’s so important that you help the universe to help you.
Let’s Help the Laws of Manifesting to Help Us!
You believe and perhaps do understand the concepts of manifesting. BUT, you can not discuss why these things are not coming to you.
First of all let’s try to see that what else could the power of the universe be other than God’s Holy Spirit?
You comprehend more easily the laws of manifestation when you realize that you are of this Spirit of your all loving Creator.
Keep in mind a principle from the Course in Miracles which states:
- “The Holy Spirit has the power to change the whole foundation of the world you see to something else; a basis not insane, on which a sane perception can be based, another world perceived.”
That’s why what we believe about we attract into our experience.
When you think about it, you are repeating affirmations such as: My ideal relationship is offered and I are worthy of to have it.
You may be trying to focus on what you want all the while you are blaming the world for instilling some restricting beliefs. Like, perhaps, that cash is bad or that there is something spiritual about suffering.
You absolutely have to focus on what you want that does serve you better such as:
- The Universe is complete of abundance.
- The Universe wants to bring my desires to me.
If you want to find greater happiness and fulfillment in your life, you must begin to understand and live in harmony with the Law of Manifestation.
You might be feeling unworthy.
If you do not believe that you are worthy of to be effective and delighted, how can you potentially develop that in your life?
Keep in mind again, that the so many ancient Scripts inform us that all things are possible.
You feel like you have done your part and now you are just waiting for the Universe (or God, if you prefer) to meet those desires.
I believed that I just have to understand and ask that the Universe will provide, and presto! Let’s see how taking action can help in this process.
Focus on what you want when you take action.
Yes, any action in the direction of your desire, you are showing the Universe that you are serious.
One extremely important thing to keep in mind when you do take action: be sure to feel great about it, about yourself and what you want ahead of time.
Now you know how to help the Universe in satisfying your dreams.
The Universe wants to bring your true free will to you because it is God’s Will that you live with purpose and passion.
You feel like you have actually done your part and now you are just waiting for the Universe (or God, if you choose) to satisfy those desires.
Final Thoughts on Living with Passion and Purpose:
Remember, learn to truly focus on what you want when you are feeling stuck, to manifest precisely what you desire in life by the true power within you.
When you take action, any action in the instructions of your desire, you are showing the Universe that you are the author of your life here on Earth.
Now you know how to help the Universe in fulfilling your dreams.
