Manifesting Abundance Though be Careful What You Wish For

By Michaela Scherr

What does it take to manifest abundance into someone's life? For me manifesting joy takes no effort, there are so many simple things I get joy out of. As a matter of fact I lead quite an abundant simple life.

I'm talking more about big material things here like manifesting money - lots of it, business success, and living a contented life where everything's taken care of.

Does attracting abundance take lots of meditation and positive affirmations or does it take a bit more than that? Is it as easy as setting an intention for abundance to materialise at our door step?

Well, meditation has, without a doubt, brought me inner peace and a change of perception. Positive affirmations set the mood for my day, and setting intentions enables me to goal set conceptually without getting caught up in every detail. These all work exceptionally well on a spiritual level.

What I do know that does work well in manifesting the big "stuff is: know what you want, focus, commitment, determination and the big one - do something. Also, if you're not congruent with what you are trying to achieve, even if there's a very, very tiny voice somewhere inside you wanting your attention, pay attention and listen. Work on what your inner voice is trying to tell you.

It may be a belief getting in the way. You might get all "fired up about an idea you have that's totally new and just for an instant, you live your dream. What happens next takes a nanosecond. Doubt steps in, and fear and so the downward spiral begins until you've given up on the idea. This is an example of a negative belief getting in the way of what potentially could be a really, really great idea!

Your inner voice might also be telling you that you need to up-skill; meet more people; look more closely at what you truly value; or that it's fear blocking your power to manifest. Sometimes we have a fear of not only failure but also fear of success.

On a more spiritual level manifesting abundance can take time, this depends of course on what it is you're manifesting. As a matter of fact it can take an awful lot of time. An option would be to start something different, but what happens then is the wait for abundance begins"again"and possibly again.

Manifesting anything takes effort - sometimes a little and sometimes a lot, and then there are times "the guys upstairs (or maybe "the girls for you) deliberately place obstacles and blocks (including fear) in the way. This will test how serious, determined and creative you really are. It can be extremely demoralising and soul destroying to continually receive rejections for that book you want published, that CD you want to sing, that movie you'd like to star in. Have faith and trust in yourself that you can pull it off. You never know what's around the corner.

If something doesn't work, improve upon it, it may be that the only thing that needs changing is your perception. Get some coaching in - there are many types of coaching these days, there's life coaching, business coaching, executive coaching, spiritual coaching, there's me - transformational coaching, and many other types of coaching. Maybe get some meditation in.

There's a flipside to all this manifesting. An expression I particularly love and has been true for me on occasion is "be careful what you wish for because you're bound to get it", and it may not be what you expect. Instead, your manifesting may bring an abundance of frustration and heartache with it.

Weigh up your wish list, look at what you're trying to manifest with new eyes - and yes, "be careful what you wish for", for it may not be what it seems.

Sometimes life can appear so complicated.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
