Manifesting a new You and a new Reality



These are exciting times to be alive in this World. A new wave of awareness is sweeping through the human race, and many, many people are attempting to manifest a new way to be true to themselves, and a new reality that is more relevant to their new-found balance with their Soul.

Much has been written about how to do this, and “manifesting” is a truly hot topic with many inspirational writers rushing to give their opinion, slant, and perspective on the subject.

I have been thinking about writing my own angle on this, instead I found the most eloquent and explicative explanation in the book “The Science of Being Great”, written more than 100 years ago by Wallace D. Wattles, and I am providing below an extract of “Chapter 21: A Mental Exercise”, which speaks for itself. I strongly recommend reading the whole book, which is freely available in many formats, including as an audiobook, on the internet. I would also suggest to read the whole “The Science of” trilogy, and his other works, as they provide an unbelievably contemporary Spiritual perspective. It is extremely humbling to see how such a long time ago someone would have touched on subjects which we tend to believe have only recently become relevant to the new generations.

Those who are uncomfortable with the use of the word God can simply replace every occurrence with Source, Spirit, Creator, or whatever is more intuitive.

Happy reading. Repeat the exercise below twice a day with all the conviction you can muster and the new reality you wish will manifest!

A Mental Exercise

First let your attention travel over your body from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet, relaxing every muscle as you go.

Relax completely. And next, get physical and other ills off your mind. Let the attention pass down the spinal cord and out over the nerves to the extremities, and as you do so think: - “My nerves are in perfect order all over my body. They obey my will, and I have great nerve force.” Next bring your attention to the lungs and think: - “I am breathing deeply and quietly, and the air goes into every cell of my lungs, which are in perfect condition. My blood is purified and made clean.” Next, to the heart: - “My heart is beating strongly and steadily, and my circulation is perfect, even to the extremities.’ Next, to the digestive system: - “My stomach and bowels perform their work perfectly. My food is digested and assimilated and my body rebuilt and nourished. My liver, kidneys, and bladder each perform their several functions without pain or strain; I am perfectly well. My body is resting, my mind is quiet, and my soul is at peace.

“I have no anxiety about financial or other matters. God, who is within me, is also in all things I want, impelling them toward me; all that I want is already given to me. I have no anxiety about my health, for I am perfectly well. I have no worry or fear whatever.

“I rise above all temptation to moral evil. I cast out all greed, selfishness, and narrow personal ambition; I do not hold envy, malice, or enmity toward any living soul. I will follow no course of action which is not in accord ‘with my highest ideals. I am right and I will do right.”

Viewpoint

All is right with the world. It is perfect and advancing to completion. I will contemplate the facts of social, political, and industrial life only from this high viewpoint. Behold, it is all very good. I will see all human beings, all my acquaintances, friends, neighbours, and the members of my own household in the same way. They are all good. Nothing is wrong with the universe; nothing can be wrong but my own personal attitude, and henceforth I keep that right. My whole trust is in God.

Consecration

I will obey my soul and be true to that within me that is highest. I will search within for the pure idea of right in all things, and when I find it I will express it in my outward life. I will abandon everything I have outgrown for the best I can think. I will have the highest thoughts concerning all my relationships, and my manner and action shall express these thoughts. I surrender my body to be ruled by my mind; I yield my mind to the dominion of my soul, and I give my soul to the guidance of God.

Identification

There is but one substance and source, and of that I am made and with it I am one. It is my Father; I proceeded forth and came from it. My Father and I are one, and my Father is greater than I, and I do His will. I surrender myself to conscious unity with Pure Spirit; there is but one and that one is everywhere. I am one with the Eternal Consciousness.

Idealization

Form a mental picture of yourself as you want to be, and at the greatest height your imagination can picture. Dwell upon this for some little time, holding the thought: “This is what I really am; it is a picture of my own perfect and advancing to completion. I will contemplate the facts of social, political, and industrial life only from this high viewpoint. Behold, it is all very good. I will see all human beings, all my acquaintances, friends, neighbours, and the members of my own household in the same way. They are all good. Nothing is wrong with the universe, nothing can be wrong but my own personal attitude, and henceforth I keep that right. My whole trust is in God.

Realization

I appropriate to myself the power to become what I want to be, and to do what I want to do. I exercise creative energy; all the power there is, is mine. I will arise and go forth with power and perfect confidence; I will do mighty works in the strength of the Lord, my God. I will trust and not fear, for God is with me.
