Have you been trying to work with the Law of Attraction but still can’t seem to make progress on manifesting your wishes? Try this super-simple approach to manifestation.
Before I go into the details, I want to ask you to first put yourself into the mind-set of a person who wants something, knows where to go to get it, and knows exactly how to ask for it once they arrive. A restaurant is a great example.
Believe it or not, the process is no different whether you are placing your order at a restaurant, or with the universe.
Step 1 – Figuring Out What You Really Want
One of the most common stumbling blocks in manifestation exercises is figuring out what you really want. When you first go into a restaurant to eat, the waiter gives you a menu to help you decide what you want. You look over the selections and make a decision.
Choosing a meal from a menu is much simpler than making major life decisions, of course! But at least spend a few minutes considering it carefully. If you could have anything you wanted in your life right now, what would it be? Think about experiences, qualities, physical objects, or even relationships. Choose something you feel excited about, but that you don’t desperately need.
Step 2 – Placing Your Order
When you place an order in a restaurant, the waiter will usually ask a few questions to further clarify exactly what you want. “Do you want fries or mashed potatoes with that?” “What kind of salad dressing?” “What would you like to drink?” The universe won’t ask you those questions, however! That’s why it pays to be very, VERY specific.
Once you’ve ironed out all the details, it’s time to place your order. There are many ways to tell the universe what you want. You can write it down, speak it aloud, visualize it, pray about it, sketch it, or cut out some magazine photos that represent it. Follow the procedure that feels most natural to you.
Step 3 – Relax!
Unfortunately, this is another common stumbling block. Most people, upon placing their order, think they either have to go out and force everything to happen on their own, or become very impatient when their desire isn’t granted immediately.
When you order food in a restaurant, do you agonize over whether it will be delivered to your table? Do you keep begging the waiter to hurry? Do you sneak into the kitchen to supervise the chef? Do you sit at the table and fume because your meal isn’t delivered in the first 5 minutes? No!
What do you do? You sit calmly and chat with your dinner companion(s). You perhaps enjoy an appetizer, soup or salad. You gaze out the window, or around the inside of the restaurant. You are absolutely confident and certain that your meal WILL be delivered. You may not know when, but you know it will arrive. And in what seems like no time at all, here comes your meal.
In order to place your order and have it delivered by the universe, you need to be detached and calm. You need to enjoy where you are right NOW. Live in the moment. Keep busy with other things. The time will pass quickly and before you know it, that trusty cosmic waiter will come walking right up to your table with something delicious.
