Example: if I want to manifest weight loss, there is a simple brute-force method to do it (restrain the desire to eat consistently). If I want to manifest muscle gain, there is a simple brute-force method to do it (eat enough, rest enough and handle heavy weights consistently). These things may not feel good as such but they give you a sensation of control and expectation; if blocks arise the simple choice to persist overcomes them.
Is there some kind of template for a general, simple, brute-force method to manifest specific objective changes in your reality?
Subtlety seems to be the main element in everything I see and it is actually a very difficult thing to handle; to the point that it just makes me wonder if the reason these methods are so subtle is that they are bs and there needs to be lots of room to explain why things didn't work out.
Actually surrender is the easiest thing to do. Asking how to surrender is like asking how to not hold a 500 pound barbell on your shoulders all the time.
You simply put it down, let go, give up, stop trying and relax your body and mind.
But there must be one ingredient in place first. It is trust. Trust that it is ok to give up. Trust that god/universe will take care of you. Trust that all is well.
How can you achieve trust? You have 2 options.
1 is easy. 2 is hard because you need pain to let go. You must be in a extreme stage of pain like just before commiting suicide (that's how i learned surrender myself)
I recommend choosing option 1.
Here is an example of how your surrendering experience could look like.
You shut down your pc, sit on a couch and... you do nothing.
You could close your eyes and say for instance: "I will surrender for the next minute completely. I give up completely. I trust in you god! I give up. I will do nothing. Come and get me if this is what you want! Do whatever you want with me! I know you love me and i love you. Thank you. I give up. I surrender".
Then after surrendering for 60 seconds you do another 60. And then another 5 minutes, then 15 minutes, then 4 hours etc.
The next day you could write down all your issues, desires, aspirations that you have right in your life. And then you could write or say "I give up. I will do nothing about this issues. Simply nothing. I give up. I surrender. I trust in god and that all will be ok without me doing anything. Thank you." And you will then do... nothing.
There will come up emotions and justifications. "Maybe this is bs. I should do something.". No, that's not surrender. Real surrender is doing nothing or at least just doing things that feel REALLY inspired. All other actions in order to wanting to solve issues are not necessary.
There will come up pain and very unconfortable feelings. If they come you surrender to them. You let them in. You let them be. You let your thoughts be. You don't resist them. You give up and let feelings and thoughts do whatever they want to do with you. As if they were entities on their own and you were their slave.
You surrender to them as if you have choosen them deliberately. You let them make whatever they want with you. Because you accept that you cannot do anything about them. You give up and let go, let them pass through you.
And the moment you truly surrender the pain will disappear almost magically. Maybe after 5, 10 or 300 minutes you will be in the vortex... simply by surrendering. And you will realize that surrender is like magic. It will bring you hope and manifestations without you having to do anything when you keep surrendering all the time.
(Inner body) Meditation and other techniques can help with surrendering. But ultimately it is all about you and your attitude. Trust and surrender, trust and surrender... Nothing more, nothing less.

There is an AWESOMELY brutal force way to manifest! It's called YOU CAN! In your comments and in your questions there are a lot I can't,it doesn't,I don't <br
@flowsurfer I have a metaphoric view of where you are in life. You want to race in the Indy 500 ,you have the ability and the drive. But your driving a geo metro with 100,000 miles on it with a learners permit!

This is putting the deed before the belief, LOA works this way. It also works when putting the belief first. To do and achieve anything one must believe in it if one is to see results.
Now this is where the two cross, both need the belief but both also need the deed the action part. So many times people in LOA lose it at the application part. You are willing to do the hardest part and the fact that you do will keep up the belief.
This is why there are very many successful people applying LOA that never even heard of it. It has been turned into formulas and methods but it comes to belief and action. In that belief and action comes the attraction for what you are choosing to believe while applying the action. Example if I apply action with an opposite belief I attract what the belief has been about the action. How likely am I to finish a race if I enter not sure I can even make it to the finish line?
