I am working on different topics systemamatically and simultaneously. Stingray often mentioned this kind of approach to manifesting with his "manifesting spreadsheet" here on IQ.

I am able to move up the emotional scale often from negative emotions to optimism or hopefulness about a desire. but i know somewhere abraham mentioned it is better to move your emotions to "knowing".

For example if you want to manifest a car you can be hopeful that the car might be on its way to you. or you can know without a shadow of a doubt that you will get your car. Sometimes i can achieve this knowing state especially when i take advantage of my physical body. But it doesn't last for very long then i return to hopefullness when i live my busy life.

How do you develop "knowing"? What do you do to feel "knowing"? Is there a quick and permanent way?

the quick and permanent way is born of water and spirit. it takes over 40 days. like everything you need to seek and to learn. or you can go try faster things but how many will you try? and how long will it take? and will it work? you have free will do what you want,experience and enjoy.

@releaser99 - That feeling of knowing, it is such a good feeling, isn't it? I love it. Up til now, I had always just sort of passively assumed that this was something that would come to me, without my having any control over it. Of course, that can't be right, can it? Since we get to do what we like... so, great question!

(20 Nov '12, 22:17) Grace

@Grace i hope the great answers here help you also:). i feel it's somehow related to your question of how to create a new reality. the feeling of knowing will speed the process up i believe:)

(21 Nov '12, 11:19) releaser99

Knowing without a shadow of a doubt is just like faith not seeing anything else but itself. No wonder faith is blind. The state of absolute certainty, is also state of absolute ignorance. I tell you not what's wrong or right, you do what you want, but you don't need beliefs, faith nor knowledge to get anything you want.

If the only unchangeable thing in the universe is change itself, how can you want to be certain of anything, quite absurd to look for certainties, isn't it.

(22 Nov '12, 05:35) CalonLan

@Calonlan how can you be certain that the only unchangable thing in the universe is change itself? you seem to be very certain about your point :). so you see your answer implies that there is always something to be certain about :).

(22 Nov '12, 08:41) releaser99

@releaser99, because it is paradox, the infinity loop of duality where one proves existence of another, the point of perfect balance between those two sides, the oneness. But funnily enough, this paradox applies on itself as well, so although the only unchangeable thing might seem to be the change itself, even this statement may change, and so can my answer.

Don't let the style of my writing trick you into believing otherwise. ;-)

(22 Nov '12, 09:01) CalonLan

@releaser99 - Thank you, and yes I agree. These answers are continuing to make me feel more and more clear and solid within myself. Another way of expressing that fantastic knowing feeling. I love this feeling. It's strength and trust and serenity that I really did not believe until recently that I could experience. And it just keeps getting richer and richer, sweeter and sweeter.

(22 Nov '12, 13:03) Grace

@Grace yesl absolutely! this is where knowledge becomes really useful.

(23 Nov '12, 02:26) releaser99

@Releaser99, great question. how did you reach believing? i am oscillating between doubt and belief, your help would be much appreciated :)

I have been trying to keep things as simple as I can as of late. I think the simpler we can keep things, the less resistance we have to the subject or situation at hand.

I think a key point to getting into a state of knowing is to understand that we are manifesting every single moment of our life. There are a lot of minutes in a day so it can be hard sometimes to try to keep up with the idea that every second is a manifestation.

This is where the idea of being in the Now moment and being present come from. When we can can be aware of our own awareness, we can completely transform our lives. It takes us out of the "default skipping of the record player" and into a consistent moment of deliberate creating and conscious manifesting, instead of unconscious manifesting.

The consistent thought process of thinking - "I know and am aware that I am manifesting every single second" helps to get me in the mindset of simplicity. I have confidence that I am manifesting no matter what the circumstances or the time of day.

Now once I know that I manifest no matter what, I can get into a mode of manifesting deliberately. Sometimes we need to start small to build up confidence. A lot of us have been conditioned to put things into categories or levels of achievement from low to high. When we use this mindset our whole life it becomes a strong belief system. We need to lose that idea and let everything drop evenly to the floor.

If you can believe in the simplicity that every time you think a thought it exists right now in the universe of your vortex bag of creation, you can then have a better knowing that it has a 100% chance of coming into your conscious reality if you allow it.

alt text

Getting to a point of knowing that every thought you think exists can be a huge boost to your confidence. Once that energy wave leaves the head (as a more easy to understand example) it is in existence right this very moment. That thought is waiting for you to line up with your own personal frequency so it can manifest in your reality.

So the key to knowing is to simply get into a state of believing that you know that everything you desire does exist right now. The thing you desire could be right next to you but it will be invisible if you have doubts or regress back into a state of repetitive unconscious awareness.

We came to this earth with an intention of playing a game similar to what children do. We knew it would be tough and it might become frustrating at times, but we had a knowing that we could overcome our limitations and eventually remember the powerful creators that we are.

We liked the idea of having this "time lag" in the conscious manifesting process. It is a good way to use our focus, concentration, awareness, and it was something unique and different to do. That Is why Abraham talks about us living on the leading edge. We came to this planet because it is the best gaming going right now.

You ask for what you want and it exists. - The bold part is the key to knowing.

You then simply allow it to come (in its own due time and own unique way) and find things to feel good about no matter how big or small they are. Even if you can do this for 51% of your day, mountains will move and rivers will flow in different directions to get you what you know without any doubt is in your life already.

Just allow the parallel universe where the thing you want is sitting, patiently waiting for you to line up with it into your physical life. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it is in non-existence. It's just not in vibrational existence.

We know that a dog whistle works even if we can't hear it.

We know that radio waves and cell phone signals work even if we can't see them.

Just make a simple choice of what you want to know and then live that life. There are so many different versions of "you" that exist. The possibilities of manifesting what you want are literally infinite when you know anything is possible.

@Grace Just remember that if you have the ability to feel the abundance of hope and confidence in the moment that you made the comment above, you have these feelings available to you at any time you desire no matter what situation is in front of you.

@Cory - Thank you, what a timely reminder. IQ mind-meld, or simply life experience, Cory? ;) As it happens, I have a bit of a challenge setting up in front of me. It's all good, but difficult emotionally, and I am frankly a little bit frightened of the life change coming. Although I only just now found your comment, a few hours ago I had been thinking over ways to maintain my current perspective as I watch this head my way. :) ...

Thank you!

(25 Nov '12, 21:42) Grace

@Cory, great answer, its encouraging to see that so many people at IQ have advanced so very well in their understanding of idea of reality creation and yet sometimes I find myself frustrated with the knowledge that I am no where near that :) I sooo want to be at that point of understanding!!!

(06 Jan '13, 13:21) dreamersmiles

@dreamersmiles Every bit of understanding is within you. It's just not visible until you allow it into your frequency range. We are all on the same level. Nobody is higher on the scale than another. It just comes down to who allows it in and who resists allowing it in. You help me and many others just by your asking of questions. Your questions help other people grow. We are all one in this together.

(06 Jan '13, 16:40) Cory

@Cory- After reading this, I now officially promote you as a jedi master. I look at your posts as if written by @Eddie or @Stingray now (Sting- Cor- ddie). There is grand value and truth in this simple post. Also, two points I'm going to add via Bashar:

1) Whilst we often hear in LOA about "time lag", and yes, there is a physical time lag for manifestation, is doesn't mean you are waiting! It simply means you need to discover excitement elsewhere for now!...

(09 Jan '13, 09:21) Nikulas

2) Bashar also states earth is a "master class", and commends any individual (and other races also commend these individuals) who chose to incarnate or re-incarnate on planet earth. Compared to other worlds, dimensions and living amongst other races, earth, the life you are living now is the hardest. Period. But it's ok, because out of so much darkness, one can find that much more light, and it gleams brighter as well. Peace to all, good post Cory, love it.

(09 Jan '13, 09:26) Nikulas

@Cory - Brilliant!

(09 Jan '13, 16:17) figure8shape

@Nikulas I appreciate the promotion Master Yod-kulas. Now can I finally get rid of this fake plastic light-saber from Walmart and get a real one:-)

As for your first Bashar point, you are correct. It goes back to my answer about taking it as far as you can. Keep that excitement energy at a peak level as much as you can and everything will work itself out...

(10 Jan '13, 15:24) Cory

@Nikulas ...and things will show up seemingly out of nowhere because you were too busy being focused on your excitement at every given moment.

Yes, the Master Class clips that Bashar shares on different occasions are probably my favorites right up there with the circumstances don't matter clip. Bashar teaches great things in my book.

A good trick for me that comes up when I run into this problem is telling myself "its already done"- sometimes after I say that statement a few false, or lack-limited beliefs pop up. Like say "I want x" (maybe its something big) and then you say its done but in reality you are feeling "well I dont know how I would actually get that and blah etc.etc."- thats when you catch those beliefs and release them and get back to "anything is possible in this crazy world, things can happen in an instant, people can manifest what they want, the past doesnt predict the future. i desire this because (get into feeling of desire and expectancy). Get into that clear place first- and get your limiting beliefs cleared out first (remember faulty unconscious programming leads to faulty conscious programming and erroneous thoughts) When you are clear and say "it is already so, its done, it will appear shortly because it is already so" then usually things start to appear quickly- the key is to get your limited beliefs and feelings about it out of the way so that that feeling of certainty overrides.

Today I was struggling because I wanted more clients. So I cleared out the thought gunk that was telling me otherwise, then I focused on when I remembered a time (or multiple times) when clients had came to me in the past and that its not a new thing to me and I said "I have two new clients"- sometimes it helps to attach imagery to this ( I imagined someone calling me or receiving some new email and meeting these new people) Within 10 seconds or less I felt an urge to check my email on my phone and there were two new clients in my inbox who were desperate for service and asking for consultations!- sometimes miracles happen so fast when you are clear and you expect that its already done and you don't have to go out and be, do, or have anything different "to get"- thats a masculine energy of "going out to get" but try the feminine energy instead of "bringing it in, allowing it to come to you in the easiest and smoothest way possible"- the means should already be present with your asking. Maybe the idea to go out and get or achieve a certain thing will pop up when you aren't thinking about it in the shower or before bed. But the desires have to be there first.

Another good tip is to ask "what if this was here right now? How would my life be different if I had this thing, person, place, ideal, etc right now?" And that feeling will tell you what adjustments need to occur where.- its like a calibration check in process.

Crazy stuff happens, people find money on the street, weird mystery inheritances come, people win some random contest or something is given away to them for free- that stuff does happen no question so don't doubt those kind of avenues either. Be open to allowing things to come to you in crazy and unpredicatable ways. But it happens to people who are clear about it, even if unconsciously- and they are just feeling good and whatever comes along is in alignment with their vibration or upward spiral of feeling expectancy. Releasing attachment also helps. Knowing but not freaking out if it doesn't come.

Sometimes it takes practice, but just the fact that you are consciously trying to practice says alot and you will master it- remember think of ease and that it is already there. So much of our struggles are just because we believe its hard to get something in the first place- this belief of lack and difficulty is one of the false beliefs programmed into us that needs to be cleared and let go. Its easier to do the big things than the small, if we are clear. Keep feeding your mind positive- abundance oriented and consciousness oriented material and avoid mass conscious thinking which programs erroneous false truths in the mind and keep working on clearing negative beliefs and you will be able to manifest your truth more clearly also. Keep at it and watch what negative beliefs might be seeping in to your subconscious programming- for that is what gunks up the process..

Good luck. It is already there for you and done!<3

@kanda wow i'm really fascinated.

i tried this just to see if i can experience the truth of this approach and can clearly see that it works. i don't have to go searching for limiting beliefs to clear them. they come TO ME if they are in the way of the statement that "it is already done on its way to me".

  1. clearing those beliefs that are in the way = knowing.
  2. not having those beliefs in the first place = knowing

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! this "calibration" is what i needed.

Hi Releaser99

Excellent answers here so ill just add this. Being in your Vortex is the ultimate knowing state.

Make a habit of getting into the Vortex daily, preferably first thing every morning. Very soon this will become your almost permanent state.

Then living your life from the Vortex your Allowing All good things to manifest when the time is right, whilst enjoying and appreciating your life right Now.

I use Stingrays Advanced Focus Block Method to get me in the Vortex daily. To me it's the Ultimate Manifesting / Vortex Entry Method. Here why.

Everything you want resides in your Vortex. You've only got to deal with what's happening right now. So whatever is knocking you out of your Vortex right now is your current obstacle (limiting belief).

This current obstacle is the biggest thing standing in your way from what you want and also keeping you from feeling good right Now. So it makes sense that only molding this issue for now is the most efficient and fastest way to feel good now and manifest everything what you want. Then when the next obstacle comes along just repeat the process.

The Advanced Focus Blocks Method from Stingray takes care of this beautifully. This is why I believe going looking for limiting beliefs can be unproductive. It took me a long time to realise this.

(06 Jan '13, 13:16) dreamersmiles

@Dreamersmiles- Abraham say that we enter the Vortex at some point everyday without even trying. For instance maybe while your petting your cat:) You might be trying to hard. Trying too hard has the opposite effect in my experience. You cannot jump to a good feeling place from a bad feeling place. Accept where you can get to vibrationally for now, and don't berate yourself if your not feeling great......

Although the answers here, especially from @Cory and @Satori are excellent, i'll give you a more practical version of how i see this whole "changing beliefs" thing. I don't claim to know much about manifesting and how to be happy. You better listen to those who have years of experience. Here are just my observations of how i see the bigger picture and what works for me so far.

"Believing" becomes "knowing" when there is no other belief involved that gets in the way of your knowing. Knowing is already available. But you cover it up with beliefs that cause resistance. When you remove those beliefs (and resistance) you simply find and feel knowing naturally. It's your natural state.

Knowing also means that you are completely aligned with your higher self. It means all the same thing.

knowing = getting out of the way of your higher self = aligning with your desires

It is all the same thing.

For example lets say you want to have a new house. Your higher self is already aligned with the house of your dreams. While you live in your old measly house, your higher self already takes a bath in your new luxury whirlpool in this new house with cool sunglasses and a cuban cigar in his mouth:)...and waits for you till you no longer stay in the way of that reality that he created so he can give you that one...for free.

alt text

But why should you listen to your higher self and not go get the thing all by yourself? The answer is very simple and extremely important.

Because you cannot do this. You are not able to do this. You are not capable of figuring out how things will happen

Yes, we often think we can. But in fact we can't. We love to think that we can analyze something, make a plan, take action and go get it. But that's an illusion. We live in an illusionary reality. It's like in the movie "the matrix". The main character thinks that he lives in the real world. But in fact, he lives in an artifical dream world.

In fact the reality of your higher self is much more real than your physical reality that you see with your eyes. But because you believe that "seeing is believing" and not "believing is seeing" you unconciously ignore the truth of all universal creation.

OK, but what to do now?

You can only get out of the way of your higher self and let him lead and give you the life of your dreams. Why? Because you can't do anything that creates results anyway. So why bother with pointless activities such as analyzing something to death, figuring out how things will work or taking absurd action?

How do you get out of the way of your higher self or in another words: how do you align with your higher self and let him lead you?

Now here is the only action taking part that makes sense in the dream reality that we live in. It is taking action to get out of the way of your higher self. Nothing more. Nothing fancy. Imo you can do only 2 different things to get out of the way / achieve the knowing state.

ffalt textff

1.Get out of the way of your higher self by thinking thoughts that match the reality of your higher self.


  • You feel in control of the creation and action taking process although in fact you are not. Just your higher self is.
  • You do something and therefore you feel involved and proud.
  • It is (and it should be) fun to do the processes.


  • If you try to find better feeling thoughts at all cost you sometimes create resistance to the process and it doesn't feel fun anymore.
  • If you can't feel better, you feel frustrated and you are angry at yourself because you know that now your desire is not coming to you. Therefore you don't feel in control of the creation process anymore (although you never are anyway).

Methods and techniques:

  • All Abraham Hicks Processes in the book "Ask and it is given". I recommend @Stingray's Focus Blocks Method.
  • Planing, analyzing, goal setting etc. All that makes you feel better and aligns you with your higher self (you get out of his way).

2.Get out of the way of your higher self by doing nothing, surrendering and giving your higher self free rein to do his magic.


  • You literally have to do nothing. You can can relax and lean back. You don't have to worry what you think at all. Your higher self will lead your thoughts rapidly to better feeling places on autopilot.
  • It feels freeing to know that something powerful is in charge so that you can relax. You don't have to figure out anything at all.


  • You don't feel in control of your life. This can be disappointing if you your whole life thought you are in control.
  • It can be boring to not have challenges, obstacles and drama.

Methods and Techniques:

  • Ho'oponopono
  • Praying to god and surrendering so he can lead your life
  • Meditation and techniques to stop the thought process
  • Simply giving up, letting go all the time in daily life and realizing that you can't do anything anyway.

@Releaser99, wow thanks for the detailed answer to my comment. Its funny that I keep drawing the 'surrendering' part to me yet I do not know how to do it. I feel at times like giving up not caring anymore and then i find myself drawn to the manifesting techniques as i want to bring about change in my life. How does one surrender?

(06 Jan '13, 13:14) dreamersmiles

@dreamersmiles You are welcome. The point about surrender is, that you do nothing. So in fact there isn't really a "how". Because you simply give up all trying and doing. Everytime you feel an urge to do something, or you feel negative emotions, or you want to control your life... you simply relax your muscles in the body, breath in deeply and give up. You can say "I give up, i give up, i give up", "I let you my higher self do everything.", "It's not my job. It's not my job. It's not my job..."

This depends on how much we believe what God has told us over and over again in the Bible. Many times though both the old and new testament we are told we will not be abandoned, that what we ask in faith we will be given. The more we read these promises the more we can not help deepening our faith until we know fully that we are thankful before we even receive because it is a done deal, God has heard and is right now even responding. Then it is as soon as asked known that there is nothing to worry over, it will be.

what is knowing? is it not learning the truth about something? then if you know why do you doubt?o men of little faith why do you doubt and why are you afraid? "Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" if something is really needed ask your holy father in spirit and truth.In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. http://bible.cc/john/16-23.htm
