This guest post is by my sister-friend Jojopah. We recently reconnected through the 30 Day Meditation Challenge. Here Jojopah writes about how we manifest both the shadow and the light of the thing or relationships for which we yearn. If you're wondering why you're not getting what you want, read on...
I began my own conscious practice of manifesting in 1994 after reading Deepak Chopra’s, Creating Affluence. My manifestation apprenticeship focused on money (of course) and a man. Once I successfully brought forth what I desired and believed necessary, I learned the real truth about manifestation.
Manifestation is revelation. In other words, whatever shows up from your “ask, believe, receive” will reveal to you what you truly and deeply believe about yourself. The money I manifested was never enough so I learned about my deeply rooted scarcity mentality. The man I manifested was not in love with me, although I convinced myself that he was. From that, I learned about my co-dependent
Once I understood that manifestation would expose my shadow as well as my
light, I decided to set an unbreakable rule for myself in order to experience a higher state of outcomes from my manifesting:
Attempting to figure out the exact form or timing of your request is truly a waste of time and energy. Higher manifestation requires flexibility, faith, and patient endurance. You may have to experience three or more outcomes from your original request before you remove all of the blocks to what is in alignment with your light, and not your shadow. In order for your manifestations to support the truth of who you are you must throw out the clock—the timing your ego dictates, and trust in the right timing of the Universe. By honoring the healing and growth gifts of the conscious manifestation practice, you will never be disappointed.
