I picked this manifestation meditation up in 2014 and it has changed the way I look at life. It is based on the theory of void mechanics/quantum physics, which I am not going to get into currently but its reliable.
The purpose of this meditation is for fixation on achieving our goals. When it comes to accomplishing anything, we first have to fix our minds on the object of our goals. When we fix our minds on that goal(s) our reticular activation system(RAS), which is just a fancy term for “what are brains look for,” seeks out and locks in on things that can help us.
Step 1: First, sit in a comfortable spot in a relatively dark, quiet room. Be sure to set aside at least 15-20 minutes to complete this meditation uninterrupted. You can sit lotus(cross legged), in a chair, or even kneel Japanese style but be sure to keep your spine straight and palms in lap. Close your eyes.
Step 2: While eyes are closed and you are relaxed, muscles loose, jaw relaxed, tongue on the ceiling of your mouth. Take a deep breath. In through your nose, out through your mouth. In through your nose out through your mouth. Now what we want to do is keep breathing in and out calmly, slowly, in order to bring our minds to a quiet calm place or blackness. At this point you are going to notice all sorts of thoughts come flying into your mind. The key is to focus on your breath. Every time you find yourself identifying and lost in a thought(s) remember to bring it back to your breath. Do this for about 5 minutes.(Or until you get steady blackness)
Step 3: Once you got hold of steady blackness, we are going to imagine what our life is currently like. Come up with an image that exemplifies your currently life situation. It can be your job, your last paycheck, your bank balance, house, car, etc. Any aspect of your life that represents what it is currently like and what you would like to change, come up with that image.
Step 4: Now that you have this image, with no emotion*, you are going to take it and super impose it on the blackness of your mind. Sort of like how a movie projector does it. Project that image onto the black screen of your mind and silently say “I am…”(this is an admission that you have created your currently reality and therefore have the power to change that reality)
Step 5: Now once you say “I am…”(with no emotion) bring your mind back to the still blackness.
Step 6: Imagine what you want to achieve. A new job, opening your own business, thriving doing what you love to do day to day. It can be anything. Start with something small and work your way up. Be specific and detailed in your imagination as if you already have it.
Step 7: Take the aforementioned image and superimpose that onto the blackness of your mind. Remember, your mind is a projector. It projects the imagination onto to “reality.” Here we are just mimicking the universe’ creative process. Similar to the way that a flip book works. Once you superimpose this image we are going to say “grateful” coupled with the emotion of gratitude. We are going to invoke the the feeling of gratitude because in our imagination we already have what we desire.
The reason we do this is because our subconscious mind does not know the difference between something that we are looking at with our own physical eyes in our waking consciousness and our minds eye when we are unconscious or contemplating. What happens when we are going through this visualization process is that we are “hacking” the way the universe creates reality but projecting our imagination intentionally into reality. Sooner than you realize, our egos(the ego that puts together our daily lives and allows us to navigate it) will take steps, seek out information, etc in order to help us achieve our goals. In a nutshell, this is not magic. It is practical psychology.
Step 8: We repeat steps 1-7 as much as we like without burning ourselves out, which is approximately 15-20 minutes.
Try this for a month and let me know how it works out for you.
