When it comes to manifesting, there’s one really key thing you need: feeling. It’s all well and good to know what you want and visualize it as done and write your intentions down in your journal every day.
But if there’s no feeling behind it or you’re not emotionally connected to your intentions, you won’t be able to manifest them.
Feeling is EVERYTHING when it comes to creating what you want in your writing life and life in general. Without the feeling, there’s no reason to even bother.
Because the feeling is what creates the energy and vibration. And like attracts like. So if you’re writing down that you’re a New York Times Best-Selling Author, but you’re not emotionally conected to that goal–there’s no feeling in it for you, it’s just words on the page–then you can’t make the dream come to life.
The emotion, the feeling, that’s what will help you bring it to life.
Now if there’s a goal you want to make happen, but you’re not really emotionally connected to it or it’s not something that you deeply desire to have, you’re better off putting that goal on hold or setting it aside and focusing on a goal that does hold an emotional charge for you.
For many years I wanted to be a best seller on Amazon. I wanted to see my book at #1 in the Authorship category. But that goal didn’t have feeling around it.
Because I had no idea how to do it and I didn’t totally believe that it was possible for me. It felt like one of those goals that other people achieve, but not me.
And, really, that had a very distinct feeling around it: it felt bad. It felt unachievable. It felt impossible.
Those kind of feelings will only attract more of the same… bad, unachievable, impossible. So I couldn’t actually make my goal of hitting #1 in Authorship happen until I changed the feeling around it.
That didn’t happen for me until Februray 2016, when I met an author who has written and published 47 books–46 of which have hit #1 on Amazon. When I met her, a person I considered to be an amped up version of me, it finally hit me: if she can do it 46 times, surely I can do it once.
And that was the moment that shifted my feelings around hitting #1 on Amazon. Suddenly it felt possible for me. It felt like, duh! Of course I can make it happen!
That changed everything. Because now there was a supercharged feeling behind my goal of hitting #1 on Amazon.
So it’s not at all surprising that I had one of my books hit #1 on Amazon in the Authorship category less than three months later.
The feeling was everything. Changing how I felt about being #1 on Amazon changed what was possible for me.
Before the feeling changed, being #1 on Amazon in Authorship wasn’t possible for me. It was possible, yes, because all things are. But it wasn’t possible for me.
Because I wasn’t open to it. I wasn’t willing to receive it. And so I pushed it away with my bad feelings and attitude about Amazon “not counting” and “not being something I cared about.”
The truth is, it’s not nearly as easy to hit #1 on Amazon for paid books. It takes strategy and doing the work.
But just because it’s not easy, doesn’t mean it has to feel hard. Once I shifted my mindset around being #1 on Amazon and then made the decision that 2016 was the year it was going to happen, it was DONE. All I needed to do was call it in with my intentions and actions.
Everything I did after that point felt divinely guided and totally with ease and flow.
I was finally taking the right actions and doing the things that were aligned with me being a best seller on Amazon. So when it actually happened I was surprised, but not all that surprised, because that’s how manifestation works.
You want something. You decide that it’s done. You put a feeling behind it. And then you take action. What you want manifests in your life. Simple.
It’s us who gets in the way and makes achieving our goals so much fucking harder than it needs to be.
The Universe does everything with ease and flow. And it has unlimited possibilities and ways to bring its magic into your life.
But it can only work for you if you’re working for it.
So figure out what you really, really want, put a feeling of “I already have it” behind it, act as if you already do, and you’ll manifest it so fast your head will explode.
