Using proper manifesting and requesting in conjunction with initiative and action on your part is the quickest way to learning the lessons you came here to learn. Manifesting is how you use your metaphysical abilities to synchronistically influence components of your reality, including the lower freewill beings in it, to keep your life from being unnecessarily difficult. Requesting is how you allow higher forces in your network to watch over you and guide you toward what is best for your evolution and do things that you simply cannot do because of your practical limits.
The guidance, protection, and ease acquired from these two methods merely clear the path through life, but you must still make the effort (fun struggle) to progress and move forward through it. This is why manifesting and requesting (two components to reality creation) comprise only half of proper living. The other half is personal effort and action.
YCYOR promotes the idea that these two things are sufficient to create everything one needs, that no effort at all is necessary. Its followers become armchair experiencers. Like spectators of television football games, they may be watching exercise happen, but they themselves become increasingly out of shape. Doing reality creation without putting forth personal effort leads to an analogous situation, spiritual stagnation.
Here is an example of the balanced application of reality creation principles with personal action:
Let us say you wish to get a better job. Just manifesting and requesting alone will often not be enough to make this happen, if you do not make personal effort to send out resumes and go to interviews. Although possible, it is very unlikely that you can simply sit at home next to the phone and expect a company to call you out of the blue and offer you the job you want. In addition to reality creation, personal effort is absolutely necessary to get results.
On the other hand, consider the possibility that you are too skeptical or proud to even try proper reality creation. In this case, you can send out resumes and go to interviews, but you will find that your “luck” is absent. You must apply a great amount of effort to secure that better job. If you do reality creation, however, you will find your luck increasing and the perfect job popping up after just a few tries. In that case, you would have made enough personal effort to learn the required lesson, but because you utilized reality creation, which is part of your toolbox in life, you did not have to struggle with more pain than necessary.
In practice, however, your Higher Self ultimately decides what is best for you. If your effort at Reality Creation is in conflict with your Higher Self’s judgment, you will not succeed in getting what you want. Often you will later find that what you wanted would have really been a bad idea had you gotten it.
To clarify, just the right amount of personal effort is synonymous with fun struggle. More personal effort than necessary is defined as painful struggle in this article. Struggle or effort is necessary for spiritual evolution. Such effort is optional when you have already learned a particular lesson but are temporarily handicapped due to amnesia of that lesson. Thus, some people can do well with reality creation and not need to apply as much personal effort as others who require that effort to evolve. Reality creation works best for those who are most highly evolved, who do not need to learn those lessons from scratch.
YCYOR makes people think they need less personal effort to get through life than they really do. Illusory limits make people think they need more personal effort. Both are traps designed by negative forces to make their targets either easier to prey upon, or more productive energy producers.
But remember, as far as manifesting is concerned, you can influence reality when it does not violate anyone’s freewill. Also remember that freewill cannot be violated if it is not being utilized, and this fact alone allows one to create stupendous synchronicities that incur no spiritual detriment, just by manifesting one’s virtuous desires. So you do not need to be “highly evolved” (whatever that means to you), just more evolved than the components of reality you need changed to fulfill your manifestation.
A mundane example is getting a good parking spot at the super market. You can manifest that reality, and most often it will materialize. What happens is that everyone else in the parking lot is too dazed to realize that they can do the same, and they will either miss that good spot “reserved” for you, or else someone will pull out just when you need it. They will pull out at the right moment because their behavior was influenced by your attempted manifestation to create that synchronous timing. That they pulled out at that precise moment does not violate their freewill, either because the act is too trivial, or because they were too unaware to behave otherwise.
Awareness is what anchors your freewill to a particular thing. If you do not have awareness of something, your freewill does not claim it, and it therefore becomes easily malleable by forces who cannot or choose not to violate your freewill. The following four possibilities illustrate the “rule” of this principle:
When you are aware of something no one else is aware of, you can change it easily by manifestation techniques, declaration of your intent, and direct physical action. Because no one else is aware of it, your change of this element of your (and their) reality does not violate their freewill. The only resistance you may encounter in this case is non-allowance by your Higher Self who may see some changes you are attempting to manifest, as detrimental to your learning curriculum.
When you are aware of something that others are aware of as well, a potential tug of war between opposing freewill may occur. Who wins depends on who had the greater amount of freewill and the knowledge to utilize it. Should you have tremendous amounts of freewill, or else are no longer bound to the realities of others, your own reality becomes easily and directly changeable by you, as easily as is done in a lucid dream. But do not be fooled into thinking you are necessarily at that level already.
When you are not aware of something that no other humans are aware of either, then that portion of your environment becomes fluid, much like an unobserved particle becomes a wave function, an enfolded hologram. These elements of your environment are most easily changed by beings who are aware of it, but who cannot or choose not to violate your freewill otherwise. Because you and no one else is aware of it, no freewill anchors that element of reality, and it is free for alteration by lower beings or respectful higher beings.
When you are not aware of something, but another human or entity is indeed aware, then that portion of your reality coupled to theirs is easily altered by them, for such an alteration does not violate your freewill since you did not anchor it to that changeable element.
These four possibilities follow from the laws of freewill and how we create our reality in concert with others. These possibilities also follow from the macroscopic consequences of quantum mechanical laws.
Schroedinger’s Cat, a classic thought experiment dealing of quantum mechanics, illustrates these principles, though given a few corrections to the experiment. The cat, which at any moment may be dead or alive, is physically shielded inside a box through which the scientists can gather no data to determine whether it is, in fact, dead or alive. In truth, it is not necessarily lack of physical perception that makes reality fluid, that allows the cat to be in a wave state of both dead and alive possibilities, but rather lack of conscious awareness of that element. The scientists staring at the box, wondering if the cat is dead or alive, are influencing and objectifying the state of the cat because despite not being able to see into the box, their consciousness is still directed toward it, they are still aware of the experiment and thus influence it. Consciousness of the cat aside, if the scientists went out to lunch and forgot about the experiment, and no one else in the world was thinking about the experiment either, then is the cat indeed in a wave state including both possibilities. But the moment anyone focuses their attention on the experiment, whether they know the cat’s state or not, the experiment reverts to a non-wave state.
Therefore, when it comes to the fluid nature of elements in one’s own reality, it is not enough to merely close one’s eyes, but actually disengage one’s freewill from it by entirely forgetting about that element. This frees it up for influence by other forces.
Thus, the less aware and alert you are, the more malleable or fluid your reality is to other beings who wish to change it without violating your freewill. Having awareness of something locks it down, then only alterable by direct physical action, or only by metaphysical action on the part of beings with more freewill than you who wisely override your lockdown of that element of reality to ensure your learning lessons flow in smooth sequence.
Therefore, fluidity of your reality is not necessarily detrimental, for most of reality creation requires such fluidity before reality can be reshuffled into what you demand or request. The trick is in becoming aware of all possible changes (locking them down to prevent influence from lower negative forces), and then stating your request specifically and honestly, which opens up one of those possibilities to fluidity. If your request is specific enough, lower negative forces cannot take advantage of that fluidity because it only flows in a direction that is as you specified, without loopholes or opportunity for negative twisting.
It is important to note that if you anchor your freewill to an element of “reality” that does not actually exist, but was artificially created by negative forces, then the creator of that artificial element essentially controls you through that anchor. These artificial reality elements can consist of false paradigms, false perceptions, subjective illusions, and so on.
Another critical thing to realize is that when you do reality creation, unless it is in the form of manifesting which influences the behavior of lower evolved beings, reality transforms only because something higher than your present state of consciousness made it change.
Reality creation, in the form of requesting, changes reality indirectly via a higher force. This higher force often makes it clear to you that you were not the creator of that change, merely its requester. How does it do so? By fulfilling the request in such a way slightly different from the way you requested it. The synchronicities created to fulfill your request often come as surprises, in a way you did not expect.
The primary reason for this is to prove that you, the ego-level consciousness, are not complete master of your reality.
The secondary reason behind surprising synchronicities is that synchronicities in general happen most easily when that aspect of reality is fluid; it is fluid because you are unaware of it, which in turn leads to its surprising nature when the requested change materializes. If you make a request, then keep expecting it to materialize, never allowing that possibility to become fluid due to your constant obsessing and lack of faith whether it happens or not, if your request is indeed to be fulfilled, it must happen through elements of your reality that are still fluid, not locked down by your constant expecting, and thus consist of elements you are not aware of, which will seem surprising when they create a given synchronicity.
This leads to the core issue of how reality works and how synchronicities happen. What we know to be physical reality is nothing but a shared dream maintained by the collective consciousness of all who participate in this reality. The collective consciousness is bound via a central coordinating mechanism that may be called the Grand Matrix of physicality. Within this physical universe exist minor matrices, including that overlaying the earth, known as the earth grid. This is a local mechanism interfacing with the collective consciousness of humanity to maintain reality on earth as we know it. Like Einstein said, reality is illusion, albeit a persistent one. Its persistence makes it objective for all practical purposes, but its illusory nature makes it malleable enough to be influenced by our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs.
Our reality consists not only of the present state of things, but our perceived past as well. The sum of our present and past states of recorded personal existence comprise a particular timeline.
We are conditioned to accept that the past is written in stone, and are divided over whether the future is fated, or if it is open. In truth, it is open because we have freewill to change it, or rather, choose which future we manifest by our actions and metaphysical influences.
Those who think the future is alterable are comfortable with the idea of shifting through probable futures, but most are bothered by the idea of a shifting past. In actuality, the liquidity of the future is exactly the same as liquidity of the past. Causality only applies within timelines, and can be thrown out the window if you move between timelines and have your memories (and anything that records the past) rearranged in the process.
Linear time, the idea that our past is set and future yet to come, is all an illusion. Linear time is a product of our minds, a limited interpretation of the way time actually functions. It is not time that moves past us while we watch, but our consciousness which moves through various timelines and experiences. Everything physical, in all its manifestations and possibilities, has already been created and exists as a static hologram. What has not been created yet is the world path we freely take through these possibilities, which particular experiences we choose, and what paths we take in learning a particular lesson. All probable futures have been created, but which of those futures we choose to move into is open.
All this is not to say that we are hopelessly lost due to the fickle nature of our past and instability of our memories, because changes to the linear past obey the same laws as changes to the present or future, which mean respecting freewill. Manifesting and requesting things which materialize in one’s future work best when they do not violate freewill, and changes to the past follow the same rule.
In other words, changes to fluid elements in reality does not only mean changes to present reality, but shifts in an entire timeline, past and present.
Just as negative entities with lower freewill cannot successfully attack you and manipulate your future unless you allow them or have a lapse in awareness, so are they barred from altering your past unless similar conditions exist. This is because past and future are identically frayed. These negative forces, most existing in a hyperdimensional state beyond linear time, do not concern themselves with causality, with “going back in time” and changing key events, but rather merging an alternate timeline (or dimension) with your current one, which is identical to pulling all of mankind on to that alternate timeline. Whether timelines are merged into yours, or whether you and mankind are pulled into the alternate timeline makes no difference, for both are the same concept.
To these hyperdimensional negative forces, messing with your timeline is simply a matter of moving you and all connected to you spatially across timelines into another, if they can. Because of your freewill and higher protection, they are very limited in where they can move you, or which timelines they can merge with yours. This is just another way of saying that they are limited in what elements of your reality (which includes recorded past and present circumstances) they can change.
All their timeline manipulations only affect linear time. Linear time is the progression of physical events which are in actuality already created and remain a static hologram of quasi- infinite possibilities. Linear time is like the “time” of a movie or audio CD, already recorded, but selectively playable. Actual time consists of one’s progression of choices among these possibilities of experience, and is measured not in tics of seconds, but in demarcations of lessons learned.
The timeline manipulations cannot affect your freewill path through the spatial time plane unless that is what you choose, though making a choice difficult for someone is not a freewill violation if it does not keeping him from making that choice.
Choosing, the core process engendered by freewill, is necessary to complete learning lessons in life. With choice denied, freewill is violated, and a lesson is delayed indefinitely. Thus, while negative forces with lower freewill cannot deny you choices, they can bias them toward one most benefiting to their agenda. For them, it is a gamble. If they win, you will make a foolish choice because you gave in to negative principles such as hatred, laziness, greed, lust, or fear. In that case, they get some of your energy, a partial conversion to their polarity, and the temporary removal of a potential threat to their agenda. If you win, however, the more difficult they biased your choices, the greater and quicker your spiritual evolution, and the more invulnerable you become to further manipulation. This reveals the ultimate purpose of negative forces, which is to act as resistance for those striving in a positive direction just as weights act as resistance for bodybuilders.
When it comes to timeline manipulations, negative forces of lower freewill can only alter your timeline in a way that biases your choices, that makes things more difficult for you. That is, unless they possess time travel technology which works on physical principles you agreed in the contract with physicality, in which your ego-level freewill can indeed be violated.
Disregarding that possibility, these changes will appear as negative synchronicities to you, also known as bad luck. Your Higher Self does not create bad synchronicities for you, it merely opens the gates and allows a few negative forces to do what they do best. The purpose of such bad luck is to alert you that a change in belief, perception, thought, feeling, and action are necessary. Whether you change them toward a more negative polarity and carnally fight through them, or whether you follow a positive polarity and proceed with wisdom, discernment, and fun struggle, is entirely up to you. Your goal is to learn the lesson and apply it, so that the particular timeline manipulation and resultant negative synchronicity does not happen again. Remember, when implemented by lower negative forces, it happened only because you were not aware of it, which provided an unguarded bridge into your reality. Become aware to passively protect, and utilize knowledge to actively protect.
So far the article has concerned theory, discussing why YCYOR fails, and why true Reality Creation works.
My goal is to inform you about the importance of using all your life tools and help opportunities, to be careful about assessing what you are truly capable of, and to proceed in life with awareness, wisdom, and discernment. Your learning lessons should be as fun and easy as possible.
To continue, the subject of “positive thinking” needs to be clarified. The problem with New Age’s version of positive thinking is that it comes at the expense of awareness, for it is a product of pure ignorance and denial. On a scale of awareness, there are two places where one feels blissful: either at the point of no awareness, in which one wallows in ignorant bliss, or in total awareness, where one understands that there is nothing to worry about since all preparations have been made and lessons learned. YCYOR positive thinking urges one to be at the bottom of the awareness scale, while true Reality Creation requires having full awareness.
True positive thinking is not denial or ignorance of the negative, but full awareness and understanding of how to deal with the negative. New Age positive thinking is merely a false fix, an attempt to suppress internal pressure and misery which arise because of fundamental misperceptions due to lack of awareness. If a pressure cooker is about to explode, it is better to turn off the heat than press down harder on the lid. With true positive thinking, your awareness fosters correct perceptions, which lead to the correct emotions and actions to match a given situation. Perceptions, emotions, and actions are a balanced trinity when awareness is sufficient.
The less awareness one has, the more unbalanced the trinity, with resultant detrimental effects which benefit negative forces. Unbalanced perceptions make it easier for your reality and timeline to be manipulated, for attacks to happen through gaps in your awareness. Unbalanced actions lead to self-sabotage, a missed opportunity to take active protection. Unbalanced emotions lead to either mechanization of the soul, or an overflow of emotional energy which are lapped up by negative forces who feed upon it.
Gaining awareness and utilizing knowledge balances perceptions, emotions, and actions, solving all these problems. For example, we often mistakenly assume that others act upon motivations that are identical to our own. Given the same circumstance, it seems we would behave the same. In reality, there is more to behavior than environmental circumstance. We differ in our individual experiences, what programs we have assimilated into our neural circuits, our genetic predispositions, what we have learned, our emotional learning path, and the orientation and degree of sophistication of our soul development. Often it is our emotional learning path that determines, via acausal principles and shuffling of the timeline, what circumstances we are born into and encounter throughout life; this complicates the “nature vs nurture” dichotomy concerning human behavior.
Nevertheless, the assumption that everyone is functionally equal leads to much emotional anguish when we fail to reconcile their behavior with our own. A paradox arises because reality conflicts with our assumptions, and our attempts to solve the paradox without further awareness only puts our hearts through the perpetual grinding stone. In such cases, our perceptions are skewed. For instance, we may mistakenly see a virtually soulless person as having a heart, and then attempt to rationalize how he could do such horrendous things if we ourselves could never commit such cruelty.
False positive thinking would consist of ignoring the paradox rather than solving it. Changing our perceptions via ignorance or awareness may both lead to emotional tranquility, but these comprise only 2/3 of the trinity. The third element, action, differs between the two cases. Those who ignore the paradox will be incapable of taking appropriate action to rectify the source of their problem. But were we to gain knowledge about the true nature of this person, after necessary contemplation and discernment we may recognize his true nature. If he has no soul, for example, we would realize that he therefore has no empathy. In other cases, the person may have a different soul orientation from our own, different experiences, or differences in any of the other numerous physical, psychological, and metaphysical variables that bias freewill and contribute toward human behavior. Being open to the idea that such differences exists prevents us from overlooking them. Therefore, in such cases we neither take offense nor continue to perpetuate the paradox. This corrects our perceptions, and we may then behave in an appropriate manner without spilling emotional energy.
If any single element, be it perceptions, actions, or feelings do not match and balance the others, you will be fed upon, exploited, controlled, and sometimes even sabotaged. For example, if you understand the nature of psychopaths and do not shed tears for their contrived dramas or get into rage over their intentional provocations, but neglect to take any action to stop them from doing so, they will just hammer away at you and feed off you in other ways. That is because despite your perceptions and feelings being appropriate, lack of action creates the imbalancing factor. Likewise, if you have balanced perceptions and take appropriate action, but your feelings are in turmoil, these etheric vampires stick around to soak up the energy. All elements of the trinity must be in balance.
More generally, correct positive thinking means viewing life from an aware perspective, and thinking/acting/feeling in a manner consistent with this new understanding. The more aware you are, the higher your evolution, and if you are evolving toward a positive polarity, the more resonant you become with your Higher Self. Feeling good emotions is secondary to becoming more aware and acting upon that awareness. For some New Agers, feeling good emotions is the primary goal, and actions or awareness is often neglected. Unlike this faulty type of positive thinking, the good emotions that result from correct positive thinking happen because of a true understanding of the situation. Without taking action, preparation is avoided, and ignorant bliss becomes short lived. By taking action, preparation is made, and attacks are prevented or defeated.
It is true that you attract what you focus upon. This does not mean that you can prevent what you ignore, however. Attraction of probable futures (or merging of alternate timelines), via manifesting or requesting, does not “prevent” anything, it merely increases the probability of that focused possibility. Prevention requires not ignorance, but the active utilization of knowledge.
How can you know if thinking positively about something is an act of denial or one of understanding? Sometimes you cannot. The best course of action is to think positively regardless, but always act upon your awareness and do what you have to do, be it prevention, standing up to an imposing force, or actively deconstructing illusory limits. In this way, you attract positive experiences, but also take physical measures to prevent negative situations. The latter is missing from YCYOR, which leaves its followers very vulnerable to attacks.
One rule of thumb that works well for me goes as follows: Let the heart be your compass and intellect be your flashlight. The heart shows you where to go, the intellect shows you where you’re stepping.
Your Higher Self does not fear anything, nor does it have hatred, jealousy, vengeance, lust, or greed. These emotions, among others, are to be avoided, but not suppressed. If you have to suppress them, this means you are merely patching over faults in your perceptions rather than increasing your awareness. You increase awareness by observing, thinking, contemplating, analyzing, theorizing, testing, feeling, and experiencing. You will know that your positive emotions match your perceptions and awareness if it thrusts you into taking action that cuts off the source of an annoyance at its root, that gets you to change your reality via active participation.
Due to illusory limits and programmed misperceptions, most of us have a more negative outlook on life than necessary. A negative outlook is one that makes us feel we have more limits than we actually do.
When we have negative emotions, they consist of two parts: one subjective half induced by illusory limits, and the other objective half induced by provocations in the environment. To solve the problem of a negative emotion, change must take place both internally and externally. Internally, we must dissolve subjective emotions based on limited awareness by filling in perceptual holes with true understanding. Externally, we cut off the source of an annoyance by taking action based on discernment.
For example, if a person at work pushes your buttons all the time, not only must first you understand his true nature and thus diffuse the subjective half of the negative emotions you would otherwise generate, but you must also take action and stand up to him or do whatever is necessary to get him to stop attacking you, which then removes the other objective half of your negative emotions by cutting off its external source or removing oneself from it.
It is not enough to only extinguish subjective emotions, because objective negative emotions remain unsolved and not acted upon. Thus, the external provocation remains. Ignoring objective emotions and failing to take well planned action leads to a “turn the other cheek” attitude, a submission to violence, and one remains a victim.
Victimhood is not only a state of mind, but a state of inaction. There are some who think that merely changing one’s mentality removes them from victimhood. Plenty of talk exists about ridding oneself of “victim mentality”, but that is only half of the solution. The other half is to rid oneself of “victim behavior” by not allowing the predator to feed, exploit, or control oneself.
Although malleable, reality does have much objectivity, which as already explained is a consequence of contracts one has made with other beings and forces, contracts made at a level you cannot break without evolving to that level or requesting your Higher Self to make such exceptions. Because of the objectivity of reality, changing your mentality is not always enough to solve a problem; action is often needed. The proportion of mental to physical change required depends on the situation, of course.
But to deny the objective component of such an experience is sheer ignorance, like in the case of a prisoner who thinks he is free just because he changes his mentality and tries to enjoy being imprisoned. Besides, is that not one goal of negative forces in their quest to manipulate us, to get us to love our prison or perhaps deny that we even exist in one? This is another trap of YCYOR, to make us believe our reality is more subjective than it truly is. In truth, our prison is both psychological and physical, internal and external, and breaking out requires changes in both.
When it comes to organic portals, to apply the preceding principles you must first dissolve all subjective negative emotions within yourself by understanding what is really going on, and only then should you take action to remove the rest of the annoyance. If you attempt to remove an organic portal without first changing your perceptions and diffusing the psychologically induced component of your emotional response, the organic portal will simply feed off of you. Crudely put, their behavior will not change because your over-emotional attempt to tell them off actually gets them off.
By first understanding the situation, what emotions you do have left are objective, righteous, and in alignment with your perceptions; these, the organic portal cannot feed upon. By taking action without submitting food, the organic portal has no choice but to retreat and find someone else to feed on.
The benefits of true Reality Creation, when used in conjunction with personal effort and objective action, should be apparent by now. The remainder of this article describes two ways of how to apply Reality Creation.
Once again, when it comes to manifesting, you can best influence elements of your reality that you have already evolved beyond, whose associated lessons you have learned, and who exist in a lower frequency of awareness than you. The less evolved and aware you are, the more you stay slave to your physical reality, and the more you might tend to rely upon technology to manipulate it into obeying your will.
If evolved, you are entrusted with the ability to change lower elements by virtue of your relative higher awareness and discernment. If you try to manifest something for negative reasons, either your attempt will fail due to lack of awareness which generated the negativity, or else you will tarnish your spiritual track record and impose upon yourself some karma. Karma is just a check list of things one needs to experience to learn.
Manifestation requires utilization of one’s freewill, the active employment of will, intent, and focus. Mere mechanical attempts at manifestation tend to fail, unless they are of an extremely ritualistic and symbolic nature which actually comprises a way of hacking into reality. Ritual and magic is a type of technology, a crutch that atrophies freewill and hitches one’s soul to the negative hierarchy if used as an ends rather than a means to an ends. It is recommended that one stay away from ritual and magic, for they are not necessary, and tend to be detrimental methods of manipulating higher forces irresponsibly.
Manifesting means changing your reality without applying physical action. It is a facilitator of physical action, not its replacement. The basis of manifesting involves using one’s mind to create or seek out an alternate timeline, an alternate possibility to the way things are now or will most likely go in short time. Present reality and that alternate reality must be made identical in order for manifested changes to materialize.
How exactly one goes about doing this varies from person to person. What works for one might not work for another. To discover what works for you, just think back to all the times you actually got what you intended to manifest and what state of mind you were in.
The following method and theory describes my personal application of Reality Creation principles, which may or may not be identical or similar to what works for you. Keep in mind that these are no substitute for direct action, preparation, fun struggle, or prevention. There merely aid these things, ridding one’s life of unnecessary friction.
Here is the method and theory I use:
First, you must be fully conscious to manifest something, which means planting your mind firmly upon this point in space and time, becoming aware of the here and now. This channels your will and energy into the actual present reality within which you exist, rather than sloppily diffusing it across random dimensions and moments as is typical of daydreams or states of inattention. This energy will be used to bind present reality to the one you intend to manifest.
While maintaining this alertness of the present moment and location, visualize what it is you intend to manifest. This creates an alternate dimension, an assemblage of thoughtforms, a way of seeking out candidate timelines which match the intended manifestation. The best fitting timelines are automatically selected, ones that accommodate the freewill of everyone whose realities are coupled to yours.
Last, you need to merge your visualized dimension or candidate timeline with present reality. This is done by identifying both of them as being the same thing, by intending and believing that what you visualized is present reality. You use the feeling of full consciousness and awareness of the present reality to empower the visualized reality. They thus become bound together, and synchronicities arise to complete their merger.
To summarize, first you consciously grab hold of the present reality by focusing on this point in space and time, then construct or select an alternate reality by visualizing the subject of your manifestation. You empower that visualization with the feeling of presence gained from focusing upon the present reality, and then fully bind the two by seeing them as identical. This process can be abbreviated by skipping the first step, and simply placing full focus and intent into the visualized reality. The purpose of the first step is just to get a feel for “actuality”.
In other words, know what you want, demand what you want, and mean what you demand. The more specific you are in your demands, the more likely it will happen. This is because manifestation requires the directing of will, and being specific directs one’s will with precision. Being specific also shows use of awareness, the accurate pinpointing of one’s demands rather than a blind shot in the dark.
Whether manifesting is an act of wishful thinking or the positive use of one’s abilities, depends on whether it aids spiritual evolution, respects freewill, is demanded with full consideration of truth and, is directed downward on the spiritual hierarchy, and is even possible to achieve.
On the one hand, it can be used for negative purposes and the control of others, or it can be used for positive purposes such as protection from redundant attacks and hassles. Whatever the case may be, keep in mind that the method of manifestation is only auxiliary, to be used for making things as easy as they should be, but cannot be relied upon to actually thrust you through life.
This method is also known as prayer, though it does not require kneeling or folding one’s hands. When requesting something, you can direct it toward all positive and higher aspects of your own consciousness, including your Higher Self, positive entities who are more evolved than you, and the universe itself. The point of requesting is to make use of the network you are part of, to allow higher aspects of yourself to do things that you yourself cannot do because of your limited evolution. They will help if they deem it a wise thing to do, if it does not hinder your spiritual evolution.
Unlike the process of manifesting, you are not sending your will and energy outward to twist the arm of anyone or anything. You are merely announcing your openness, making an earnest request for help from higher positive sources, who normally respect your freewill and therefore do not intervene unless you give them permission.
Help from higher forces is unlike influence from lower negative forces, who absolutely cannot interfere unless you give them permission, which unfortunately comes in more forms than mere verbal submission. Other forms of permission included your contract with physicality, personal displays of ignorance, and succumbing to subjective negative emotions.
As the saying goes, “God helps those who help themselves”, and “ask and ye shall receive”. Reality must be met halfway, and requests are only granted if one has first done everything one can do. In other words, do all you can do, and if you request, the rest will be taken care of.
Like manifestation, requesting is merely an aid to living. Its best application is in helping you get protection from things you cannot personally protect yourself from.
We exist to learn and evolve. The nature of a particular reality we operate within reveal how such lessons should best be learned. This is because at some level, we choose the circumstances of our lives to best facilitate our evolution. Evolution progresses most efficiently when full use is made of all available resources, physical and metaphysical.
Attempting to evolve while adhering to a purely physical paradigm results in unnecessary pain, friction, and interference. Trying to evolve while only following a metaphysical perspective leads to stagnation, vulnerability, and sloth. But combining both to create a balanced paradigm and approach to life results in efficient learning and evolving. We exist on earth for a reason, which is to learn and evolve by both physical and metaphysical means, by transforming both ourselves and our environment in accordance with divine structure.
Changing our environment without changing ourselves leads to irresponsibility and refusal to learn, while changing ourselves without changing the environment is a selfish act that defeats many people’s purpose for even being here. This change of the environment is simply the physical effect of a higher positive metaphysical cause, the creative influx of higher energies which lead to personal actions which change the environment in a way that facilitates the evolution of all. Change of oneself means personally evolving by gaining knowledge and awareness. The purpose of physicality is to lock different beings into common dimensional arenas of interaction, so they can evolve via that interaction. Thus, the goal of physical existence is to personally evolve by helping others evolve, no matter the polarity.
The objective nature of our reality demands that it is not enough to change the world by merely transforming our internal psychological and spiritual state. We do create our own reality, but at a level beyond our total control at this level of evolution, and thus there are some things we cannot change by merely changing ourselves. These require utilization of knowledge, putting what one has learned into practice.
Internal transformation and growth by themselves only have a passive effect upon reality by setting up synchronicities, passive protection, and other reality creation processes. These can only do so much; they cannot do all. The rest can be achieved only through active efforts, which occur when internal transformation guides one’s actions. When it comes to seeking to materialize something positive, it is not enough to only think positively and do reality creation, but to take action and make it happen. And when it comes to protection, it is not enough to become aware of dangers and request protection or intend that they keep away, but to get into action and take preparatory or preventative measures. Reality creation facilitates action, but does not take its place.
While YCYOR is a trap designed by negative forces to disarm its targets for easier consumption, true Reality Creation provides metaphysical tools which help one progress through one’s learning lessons as efficiently and painlessly as possible. Manifestation and requesting are methods of true Reality Creation which make good use of our position on the spiritual hierarchy between higher and lower evolved beings and forces.
