I'm so excited to share this with you!!

The secret to manifesting what I desire is very simple yet not so simple to really really grasp. It's integration.

I will try to explain as best I can because I'd really like this to be understood, because it is the real secret to manifesting.

We all know that when we have a desire we are supposed to focus only and purely on the desire. And we all know that one major problem we encounter is that we think we focusing on the desire, when in reality we are actually focusing on the lack of it. And we have all been through trying to be positive, to think positively, to shift our thoughts and even to let go of our desire, so as to allow it to manifest. And we all know how hard this sometimes can be, especially when we are so attached to manifesting our desire.

The idea of integration is to look at all that is happening, including (a) unwanted things relative to your desire; (b) unwanted things not related to your desire; (c) wanted things which actually manifest but which are not your main desire; AS ONE WHOLE CHAIN OF EVENTS LEADING YOU TO THE MAIN DESIRE.

How do I go about this?
1. I realise (really realise with logic) that since a desire is present in me, it means that I already contain it and that I am capable of having it; 2. I realise that I have come here, in this life, to experience life and there is NOTHING that is working against me, unless I believe that it is. Why? Because my SOUL/HIGHER SELF/UNIVERSE actually wants me to experience it!! Otherwise, why would I have this desire in me? Please read this again and understand how logical it is. This means that it is NOT TRUE that there are forces outside of ourselves working against what we desire. What is working against us is simply ourselves ... our belief or trust in that which works against us ... and so we CREATE it ourselves ... reflecting perfectly our innermost beliefs.

How to put the idea of integration for manifestation:

  1. Realise that everything that manifests to us, whether wanted or unwanted, is in really neutral in nature, and it is we who assign to it the 'negative' or 'positive' connotation (but usually the negative).
  2. Look at the unwanted occurrence with a neutral perspective and ask yourself: how can this be of service to me right now?
  3. Everything that happens to us is always connected, even though the events and occurrences do not seem to be connected. They are leading us on our path to what we truly desire. Please understand this well. Even an occurrence totally unrelated to what you desire IS completely related to it.
  4. When you acknowledge the unwanted occurrence and ask 'how can this serve me', one obvious answer is always this is leading me to my desire EVEN THOUGH I do not see it now. You can then identify other positive attributes which emanate from this unwanted occurrence.
  5. At first you will feel as if you are being false by attributing positive aspects to something you clearly define as unwanted. However, the crucial point is the perception of it being neutral. That's your starting point. You will, with practise, quickly realise that it is true, that it is we who assign a positive or negative label to an occurrence, and that in fact, it contains within it positive aspects which are there leading us.
  6. This is the process of integrating all the occurrences in your life and identifying positive aspects rather than rejecting them. When we reject them we are giving them more power and more momentum. When we accept them as neutral and identify the positive aspects, we are integrating them as part of our experience, and this neutralises the negative and actually speeds up manifestation.

I really really hope that I have been clear enough. For me this was an 'AHA' moment. I wish it is for you too.

I like it a lot man! Good post and I really do mean that, not just talking you up.

It is a great re-frame that I think I have heard Bashar speak about also. And that was when anything 'bad' happened in your reality, to instantly and blindly reframe it as 'good' in retrospect to the bigger picture game the higher self is playing.

I cant lie though. For me, applying this technique is really hard for me and I cannot seem to really get it. Unfortunately, I am not spiritually mature enough (experienced enough) to accept that when something I dislike pops up in my reality, that somehow it is 'good' in terms of a manifestation path I may be on.

If someone were to smash my car window, or if I were to lose my bank card, or if I were to accidentally break my ankle through no risky fault of my own, then it is especially difficult to label it as 'good' in the moment or even in the proceeding days after that event happened.

But that is just me (at this moment)

and however...

I have heard countless stories from Bashar seminars of where a fairy tail style sequencing of events will happen to people, usually beginning with a big desire for something, and then some miraculously disaster style event occurring......which ironically led them to their desire in a round-about sort of fashion.

I have heard a story of where a person passionate about stereo speakers in their car desired a new sound system. He didn't have the money and couldn't afford the best one he wanted.

A few days later, some punk cracked his car window and stole his current audio player. Bad luck? Bad event? Not really; he went to his car insurance company and the company imbursed him some money to go to a designated car repair garage to fix his window, as well as some other money to purchase a new stereo system.

When he arrived to the car repair shop, the mechanic examined his vehicle and actually found the window was extremely quick and easy to fix, in fact, so quick and easy that the mechanic apparently didn't even charge him.

With the money saved from the mechanic repairs, plus the original money intended to purchase the replacement stereo system, the gentleman actually had the exact amount to the dollar of the original price the top quality stereo system had costed!

This was paraphrased a Bashar story, sadly, I cannot remember the seminar it was from. And Bashar says, these sort of narrative style "I couldn't believe it" stories happen all the time and says this is how life is designed to work.

Even as I write this, I can begin to appreciate that there have been a few sequential things in my life that originally began as 'bad' items but transformed into a whole host of good mini-events.

In saying this, what my gut feeling tells me is that the interpretation of events and the corresponding decision to trust life is unfolding fine is the core component of this. Bashar highlights that for these type of "stories" to happen, one must remain in a positive state of being as he refers to it.

An old zen tale that expresses the same idea here about not labeling something but rather to observe the experiences and see what unfolds.

One day in late summer, an old farmer was working in his field with his old sick horse. The farmer felt compassion for the horse and desired to lift its burden. So he left his horse loose to go the mountains and live out the rest of its life.

Soon after, neighbors from the nearby village visited, offering their condolences and said, "What a shame. Now your only horse is gone. How unfortunate you are!. You must be very sad. How will you live, work the land, and prosper?" The farmer replied: "Who knows? We shall see".

Two days later the old horse came back now rejuvenated after meandering in the mountainsides while eating the wild grasses. He came back with twelve new younger and healthy horses which followed the old horse into the corral.

Word got out in the village of the old farmer's good fortune and it wasn't long before people stopped by to congratulate the farmer on his good luck. "How fortunate you are!" they exclaimed. You must be very happy!" Again, the farmer softly said, "Who knows? We shall see."

At daybreak on the next morning, the farmer's only son set off to attempt to train the new wild horses, but the farmer's son was thrown to the ground and broke his leg. One by one villagers arrived during the day to bemoan the farmer's latest misfortune. "Oh, what a tragedy! Your son won't be able to help you farm with a broken leg. You'll have to do all the work yourself, How will you survive? You must be very sad". they said. Calmly going about his usual business the farmer answered, "Who knows? We shall see"

Several days later a war broke out. The Emperor's men arrived in the village demanding that young men come with them to be conscripted into the Emperor's army. As it happened the farmer's son was deemed unfit because of his broken leg. "What very good fortune you have!!" the villagers exclaimed as their own young sons were marched away. "You must be very happy." "Who knows? We shall see!", replied the old farmer as he headed off to work his field alone.

As time went on the broken leg healed but the son was left with a slight limp. Again the neighbors came to pay their condolences. "Oh what bad luck. Too bad for you"! But the old farmer simply replied; "Who knows? We shall see."

As it turned out the other young village boys had died in the war and the old farmer and his son were the only able bodied men capable of working the village lands. The old farmer became wealthy and was very generous to the villagers. They said: "Oh how fortunate we are, you must be very happy", to which the old farmer replied, "Who knows? We shall see!
