Last week I asked my spirit guides during meditation to guide me through the easiest way to manifest bodily changes. I slowly started realizing stuff, and yesterday everything suddenly clicked for me (I have no doubt my prayers were answered!)
First, I realized the famous act as if method is just a tool not meant for everyone because it makes us so attached to the outcome, and that you don't necessarily have to look in the mirror! In fact, don't look at all or ignore/don't give a f about what's in there! Why would you pay minimal attention to something you no longer represent on a vibrational level?? Same with your thoughts!!! You don't have to deny/replace them every time your old body comes to mind!!! Just ignore them and say I don't care! It's like ignoring the pieces of what used to be, and allowing that new mental image to come to life! Can you imagine replacing your thoughts every time?? That would be exhausting and would be like trying to take control of your manifestation when that's not your job! Although it IS your job to be aware every time your mind goes into negative thinking about whatever, so you don't get dragged down by it! Do you understand the difference? Mental images of your old body is like looking into a mirror, you feel neutral about it/ignore it! Positive/negative thinking is what aligns you with your desired reality! Because THAT is the fuel you need to be a vibrational match! Feeling good and becoming a match is your ONLY job!!! But understand you don't need to feel happy all the time, I'm just saying don't fall into negative cycles and let happiness and relaxation flow naurally to you. It's all about flowing, you don't force anything. And here goes the second part..
Second, If all you need to manifest your desires is to be a vibrational match, why would you need to be reminding the universe every single time of what you want? (when thinking, NO, I'm not this, I'm this!!) The universe knows EXACTLY what you desire in perfect detail (if you are not clear on what you want then you need to work on that) Do you know exactly how you want your body to be? As I've read, this is extremely powerful as it is just ready to go from the invisible to visible!
Now, how would YOU feel once you have it? If all those body changes will make you feel confident, generally happy about life and more social, then practice those feelings! You don't need to brainwash yourself to make you believe you're a certain way, believing you can do it and aligning is ENOUGH! When practicing those feelings, don't think you're feeling that way about your old body, you're already ignoring that! Just recreate those feelings without having a mental image! Think about it, if you really had what you want you wouldn't be saying every time "I have the body I want!" NO! You would be just generally happy and confident! This is being a vibrational match! That's why other things we've manifested without putting much attention have felt so efortless. If you feel manifesting is hard, you're doing it wrong! The only difficult part in my opinion is getting rid of deep rooted beliefs and "big" blocks, which is actually a stage before manifestation!
Third, I'm pretty sure this is optional, but you can practice the feeling of having what you desire when you feel good, just ocassionally, when you feel like it. Maybe just picture in your mind what you want and feel how great it is to be that person, say it confidently with no doubt in mind. It's the feeling that matters, not the mental image. Visualization during a meditative state plays a role here too.
Yesterday I applied this for the first time and i felt incredibly CALM! And just generally happy. I felt sooo relaxed I cannot express it! I went through several pages on this group yesterday and found several stories that were basically what I explained! Manifesting deliberately shouldn't be hard!
I'd love to hear about what you think!
