After I wrote a post about being persistent in effort, @Stingray commented that he finds "it easier to turn it all around and dispense with the "hard work" belief instead :)". I loved his answer, but have always wondered this: Just how can he do that with everything??? Is it magic or what? Then I thought about state of mind.
I am usually to the point of pleading with the Universe when I think of manifesting. (LOL) But I never seem to hit that sweet spot of thought that allows me to just let it go. I have manifested some great events and things, though- I remember five years or so ago when @Stingray posted his manifesting box experiment. I immediately put Wade's name in the box, and at that moment, let the wish release into the Universe, and believed it would come to pass.
Of course, it did. :)
(I apologize for the size of this pic, but it took so long just to figure out to upload this pic...)
I have not been able to duplicate that state of mind as well since. I need to figure this out, so I can easily manifest. I have read all the IQ info, but I still flounder. Help, @Stingray?
Thanks and blessings,
If you truly want to manifest "things you actually prefer" then you have to understand that you are no different than @Stingray or anyone else for that matter. We are all on the same vibrational scale when it comes from a source energy (or god) point of view.
You really are in the same place. You just have to allow yourself to know that. People who know that they can manifest easily may very well be seeing that vibrant blue sky through the sunglasses, while other people may be kinking their own garden hose consciously or unconsciously, and the end result is a drab boring black and white landscape.
Start creating a new story for yourself. No matter how fake or make believe it feels like. Telling a new story that you prefer will eventually turn into the new story that you prefer.
For example: Saying this...
"I am usually to the point of pleading with the Universe when I think of manifesting. (LOL) But I never seem to hit that sweet spot of thought that allows me to just let it go."
...is not telling the story you want. The universe only hears the pleading and grants that wish. The universe says... I will grant you the wish of pleading and never hitting that sweet spot of allowing thoughts I prefer to let go. So technically, you are manifesting that situation effortlessly and without fail.
On the other hand, saying this...
"I have manifested some great events and things, though- I remember five years or so ago when @Stingray posted his manifesting box experiment. I immediately put Wade's name in the box, and at that moment, let the wish release into the Universe, and believed it would come to pass. Of course, it did. :)"
...is a prime example of manifesting what you prefer effortlessly. Here is proof that you can master manifesting things that you prefer so why are you here asking all of us this question again? :)
You need to get into the feeling state of your manifesting box manifestation of @Wade and use that feeling state in every situation in your life. All you need is one thing that vibrates the frequency of good feelings and use that again, and again, and again, AND AGAIN, just like you would with a rusty old hammer that has been hanging in the garage for twenty years plus. You need a job done (manifestation you prefer) go get that trusty rusty hammer out of the garage (manifesting box manifestation feeling/vibration/frequency) and just effortlessly tap the nail in.
I've noticed your biggest issue in the years I have been on Inward Quest is negative self talk. I'm not going to even attempt to tell you to stop doing that because it is 100% your choice to do so. But negative self talk and living in your past is your greatest obstacle in manifesting what you prefer, and it will not change unless you decide it does.
The thing that I find interesting is how you ask the question above and yet throughout the comments in the answers you are rooting yourself in deep like a tree with negative self talk. Which will create negative manifestations you don't prefer.
"Typing seems to cause me to misspell often; I have dysphasia (dyslexia of the body, which has hindered me in Karate). But also, I am getting old."
"when I was alone for weeks at a stretch while my husband was with another woman, at a new job, in another state"
"I am almost unteachable sometimes"
"My past abuse was pretty bad, but that does not mean I have to let it limit me anymore."
Again, I am not telling you what to say or not say, or think or not think. I am just trying to put as much evidence in front of you as to why you are not manifesting what you prefer effortlessly.
The last quote above is a good example of negative with a hint of positive. Even thinking about your past abuse (which has absolutely nothing to do with the you of right now) is activating that negative vibration no matter what you say at the end.
Why not just forget that that first part and say... "I have no limits anymore. I am completely limitless, I am completely free, I am one being with the universe (or god) and it/he is one with me. I can do anything, be anywhere, and live the perfect life that I choose to live because I am a master manifesting machine and it is so effortless and fun that I just can't stop laughing because I am filled with so much joy, appreciation and gratitude."
Well something along those lines. Whatever wording works best for you:)
I actually got into a better feeling place by just writing that small uplifting quote.
Maybe just forgetting about everything for a few minutes a day and writing something similar above just to simply get in a good feeling place could be helpful for you. Maybe even writing a bunch of quotes like that (not matter how fake or unrealistic they seem to you) and going to read them when you need a boost in your mood could be very beneficial. Get into a good feeling place, and then focus on manifesting through your thoughts and actions.
You are always manifesting or you wouldn't even exist as a human being. You are the one creating this stage play called earth. The question is, what type of manifestation do you prefer to create? Tell a new story starting right now and leave the justification of the past where it belongs...in the past.
Well Jia, for me the one thing that really worked for me was kind of a list of things. First of all we need to look at this like a computer program. This program is life in general. Start simply with showing you how it works. The beliefs are your "out of bounds". NOTHING can go outside of your beliefs (although some can ill explain that in a min). Your thoughts are mostly related to our beliefs and fuel your desire to act upon things. When our thoughts are negative it feeds negative/limiting thoughts into our manifestations. IE I think I can not do something (because my belief is I'm not good enough) and then when I try to do it the manifestations come out imbalanced (or not the way I wanted them to). Our actions on thoughts and beliefs alike create the manifestation into our reality. (IMPORTANT) The degrees of our beliefs are what gives us the percentage of ability to manifest from our actions. IE. I MOSTLY believe that people are bad. Mostly allows 75% of an investment of yourself into a belief, therefore when I put my energy into interacting with people, I only have a 25% probability of that experience(manifestation) yo go OUTSIDE of my normal "out of bounds" reality belief barrier. What causes resistance in beliefs? Bad psychology, EXPECTATIONS, and lack of feeding in positive thoughts. I know this is only scratching the surface to explain this chart, but I hope this gives clarity. To see the mechanics, is to understand what step you are missing. LOVE YOU.

I think that when the experiment was originally performed you had a "what have I to lose" attitude.
But now you have a "I want that back" attitude. So when you originally attempted that it was a fun carefree playful "I'll give this a try" attitude.
Now that it's serious "this has to work I need it to, and besides it worked before" attitude, this type of attitude that lacks the fun inquisitive "let's see what happens, what could be the harm" feelings there now would be a fear of it not working.
The fact of feeling "I really need this to work" is a lack of faith.
If we pray to God and feel like "I really hope God will answer this prayer" then have we faith? I believe that is the faith like children, they don't feel like "I really need this or I hope this works." They are happy, playful and excited at the potential future. Instead of fearing the unknown they boldly go into that exploring to find great and wonderful things.
I know honey it is hard to have that kind of confidence and faith when life is hard, we both experience that.
This isn't an answer to your question but an illustration of why you really shouldn't be asking me for help with your issues.
I've written many comments and answers to your questions in the past and they have ultimately resulted in you apparently trying to get me banned from Inward Quest. Unfortunately, I'm still here :)
So being the official Inward Quest "persecutor" - "so many to persecute, so little time" :) - it's kind of mystifying that you think I'm going to say anything different to you now than what I've said many, many times to you before. If anything, I'm annoyingly consistent :)
The basic issue is that until you decide to stop telling your same old "story" about how bad your life is or has been, it just cannot change because your determined focus on your "story" keeps the influence of your "story" alive. There's no-one making your life miserable except you.
That decision to change is yours, not mine, and until you do actually change (instead of just talking about changing), anything I write to you is going to be interpreted by you as more "corrective comments" and that might result in more official complaints against me.
I really wouldn't want to put my daily persecution activities on this site at risk ...my victims would be sooooo disappointed :)

The good news is you are manifesting effortlessly. :) Everything that surrounds you now you manifested, they're your creations under your complete control.
If you want to experience 'new' creations, a new reality, then you have to feel differently in this eternal moment of now, now, now.
A good way to try to create new ways of looking at your life is to ask yourself how you would feel if you found out that you would NEVER be able to have your desires. No chance, they're not coming.
How would you feel? If you feel, 'Ok, no problem. I'm very happy with my life. Whatever tomorrow brings I will enjoy so it's no skin off my nose.' then you're probably spending a lot of your time in the vortex. If hearing that news would depress you then you're probably spending more time out of the vortex than in.
How to change that? Well, if you knew your desires weren't ever coming. How would you make do with the life you have? Where would you find the joy, the excitement, the calm, the peace in your current life experience? Where are the good things that you would focus on if you knew there was nothing else new that was coming along for you?
Put your focus there on those good things. I'm assuming one of those lovely, positive things would be Wade? If he makes you feel fantastic and positive (slap bang in the vortex on that subject) then just think about him as much as you can and ignore everything else.
Find those sweet points in your life as it stands now today. Bathe in the good stuff, FEEL it, revel in those good things, seek them out, draw them out and then you will be a match for more and more good-feeling manifestations. :)

Dear Jai, For all intents and purposes, I would agree with the response offered by @Cory. I would like to suggest some additional points for you to consider, some of which may seem redundant. My purpose, however, is to try to answer your question as simply as I can. This is not to suggest that you are in any way incapable of understanding lengthy or complex explanations. There are plenty of those available for those who want to believe that the nature of our reality, our existence, and all that is, must be so complex that it is beyond any hope of comprehension. It is not. It is actually quite simple, quite "effortless". This is something we all rediscover when we transition to our natural "soul" state of being and are no longer hindered by the 'complex' nature of the human brain, its five sensory inputs and the limitations of language (voice output).
Recognize the fact that you are manifesting every 'thing', every interaction, and every event that occurs each day of your life. Even your physical body is one of your most magnificent manifestations (In sickness and in health). All of these manifestations come about with little or no recognizable effort, and no special "state of mind" is required. It is simply a matter of your thoughts, especially the persistent ones (beliefs), reacting with the conscious energy of all that is. Release a drop of food coloring (thought) into a glass of water (energy) and notice how it "colors your world" (your perceptions). Manifesting, in and of itself, is effortless in any state of mind and occurs at a subconscious, or supra conscious level of awareness or state of being. (Whichever term you prefer).
If you want to manifest your 'conscious' desire, you will first have to 'transfer' it to the subconscious mind. This act of transference has been described in many ways, some of which you may be familiar with (Give it up to God. Put it out to the universe. Leave it in the hands of the lord. Send it into the vortex and forget about it. Pretend it is already there (so you can forget about wanting it). All these expressions are describing the process that is getting your conscious thoughts to the level of awareness where the thought/energy reaction (manifestation) can occur.
In my own experiences with manifesting, I have found (correctly or not) that manifesting occurs more quickly when what I desire is a blending of both what I am wanting with what I needing. These two are primary for a manifestation to occur. Wanting something by itself just for the sake of having it (for example: a private jet, yacht or million dollar home) is less likely to manifest because it is not something I really feel I need. I have always been able to manifest things, relations, and events that I wanted and at the same time really needed. (Note: Simpler objects manifest much more quickly that complex ones!)
The best advice I can offer to effectively accomplish the all important task of getting your conscious desires to the necessary subconscious state of being is simply this: DO NOT DWELL ON IT! Put it out there every now and then and get on with your day. When you dwell on it, you inevitably risk crossing the fine line between wanting something and giving too much attention to not having it, which will lead to more of not having it!
perhaps life is not about

Effortless manifesting comes from a place of wholeness, but most people practicing deliberate creation may have a hard time reaching and maintaining a level of complete wholeness, so the alternative would be to reach a state of mind where the manifestation has already been achieved, in the past tense if you will. Just asking the question above indicates a vibrational gap between you and what you want, but it also points you in the right direction because keep in mind that you are always moving towards what you want, it just depends on you and you only, and how you allow yourself to close the gap between you and what you want, how to do this?, by changing your perspective and looking at things from a broader point of view, by moving more into an ''allowing'' place because manifestation is an effortless and natural process. A good example is planting a seed, watering it regularly, and knowing it will grow full bearing delicious fruit. [manifestations] All things work in the natural order and effortless manifestation is no different, it doesn't matter how big or small a desire is, it's all a form of energy, we and only we decide what's big or small, important or un-important, through our perceptions and beliefs [vibrations] and it's mirrored back into our physical reality. When a desire feels natural or even ''ordinary'' to you, it's going to manifest in your physical reality much easier, the less and less you care about it, you're offering less and less resistance to it, it's just a natural thing you'll expect to happen, so you feel relaxed about it. Of course over time you could get sick and tired of putting so much energy into your desires that you finally decide to relax and [allow] them to manifest in their own timing, this is what happened to me, I reached a state of boredom when I thought of my desires, they'd already ran their course at an energetic level so I simply put them behind me, not giving up mind you, because you cannot stop a desire from manifesting, sooner or later it'll sneak into your physical reality when you least expect it, again, more than likely this will occur when you've grown tired of putting so much effort [energy] into manifesting your desires. In my experience putting my desires behind me allows faster, easier, and smoother manifestations because I trust the life stream to deliver everything in the perfect time so I'm more relaxed about it all, it feels like no big deal to me so the Universe can bring these wanted realities in unexpected and surprising ways. As paradox as it seems, the less you care about your desire and even manifestation for that matter, you are allowing your desire to pull you towards IT because there is no resistance keeping it from you.
