I used to roll my eyes when I heard that everything was energy because I thought I had so much energy and so much desire and so much focus and so little of anything good in my life!
I still, to this day, won’t listen to lots of Law of Attraction stuff because OMG I did it all and I had such a drift of nothingness the further I dove into complex formulas and near-paranoia about how “I was vibrating” to attract what I needed… And given that I was failing so much, I realized something was deftly missing for me.
If it works for you—— go for it!
I have found that there’s something less mentally daunting to do to manifest stuff and make it happen, less introverting for me, more predictable and deeply awesome. I’m personally less paranoid, more powerful and even when the chips are stacked against me at times, I have found my way out without freaking out.
I’ve learned it’s actually what people are now calling Fifth Dimension (5D) manifestation, but let’s just call it “creating the things you need” and let’s look at the most practical ways to get that flow going!!
The idea of making life happen in the Fifth Dimension is not really that cosmic. It’s actually a choice to create from your heart. Your heart makes things happen. Your passion reorganizes the universe. Your deepest desires are fuel to shift and heal and grow and make. You aren’t actually even attracting anything to you, you’re sort of claiming things as you go through life, making the choices and the decisions to move toward the things you’re ready to claim or create next.
Basically, when you’re in love with what you’re doing, you don’t need to wonder if your vibration matches anything… because love is love.
How do you think you create things? (OR: do you actually believe you create anything?)
While intellectually you may acknowledge that everything is energy, do you actually believe that? Do you believe that you can influence life with your own power? Do you believe you can shift things?
This experiment may be enlightening to you, especially if you sort of believe you can change matter with your energy, but you’re not really convinced you are that creative or powerful!!!—>
I’ve found that when it matters deeply to me I can move mountains.
The thing is, so many things that intellectually sound good (“Oh, it would be great to own a country house… Oh, how cool to be able to travel a lot… Oh, it sounds wonderful to have more savings in the bank”…) aren’t necessarily things that feel epically exciting.
If you’re so excited to travel the world that it’s a visceral need and drive… I bet you’ll be packing your bags soon, somehow! If you’re just thinking that it may be fun, and you could do without it, as cool as it sounds, you’re likely not on fire with creativity.
If you don’t love someone or something or a goal that much, how could you possibly summon your creative magic authentically, deeply, richly, intensely?!!!
Pretty tricky, right?
So, do more of what you love and aim for what you love. You won’t have to worry much about your vibes overall, because you’re in love with the whole thing already!
Where do you sink in the day?
Where does your energy dive? Afternoon? Morning?
Do you have places you go that drag you down or lift you up?
If anything is a vibe killer, it’s the energies and habits that we’re used to even if we don’t like them, the habits as innocuous as skipping meals or as sabotaging as deep procrastination.
Feng shui teaches that all these vibe-killing habits are demonstrated in your space. When you change your space, you can eliminate a whole lot of these habits and make things far more seamless.
Do you get triggered with things (we all usually do!) and what are they right now?
Wherever you get deeply emotional in a heavy, angst filled way, that’s where you can start clearing energy.
If you’re triggered by the bathroom scale, get rid of it and start a more holistic way to embrace your fitness. If you’re triggered by looking at your bank balances, organize your finances so you’re now inspired to grow them. If you’re triggered by someone or some activity, start clearing the energy and blocks around this.
Start with a decision. “This is going to change for the better!” is a great big decision.
Make your decision and get to making more greatness happen by feeling lighter.
How can you feel lighter right now?
Some ideas I love on the left side:
These are some of the insanely simple but often-overlooked basic-basics to having a life of making things happen, manifesting, creating, expanding…
There are so many tools in feng shui in my way, in life every day, always easy to access, that put life on an instant creative path of more light.
There are so many on the blog to try, so many to experiment with… and I encourage you to explore everything that grabs you.
