Are you sure of what you are wanting? Do you know what direction you are wanting to take? If not, then you must really figure that out before proceeding any further. Without being clear on what you want then how are you going to know what to strive for? How are you going to figure out what it is you really want in life?
Some people know immediately what they are wanting while others may need to ponder for a while to figure out what they want for their future. If you ask a 14-year-old what they want to do with their life their level of clarity will be very minimal because they have not yet learnt all the skills and have not had all the experiences that an adult has in order to make that decision.
When talking about clarity we talk not only about what you do want but also that which you do not want. Although it is important to know what you don’t want it is equally important not to focus on that fact. You use what you don’t want as a building block for discovering what you do want.
However, you may find that your mind moves towards that which you don’t desire or don’t have, which is why you need to be clear on what you do want so you can shift it when your mindset goes to that place.
Make sure you set goals for yourself that are lined up with your vision. Be clear on why you were put on this earth and what your purpose is and then you can begin to line up goals and intentions that the universe will be able to take hold of and manifest. Without knowing what you want, the universe is unable to help you bring these visions into fruition.
If you are not yet living the life that you desire to live, then it is time to start thinking about how clear you have been with your requests. If you are not happy now, then you need to take responsibility for where you are and stop blaming others for your situation. Be clear about where you want to go and don’t miss out any details.
Remember that where we are in our current situation is based on our previous thoughts and therefore the only person that can change our situation is ourselves.
Let me give you a couple of examples to demonstrate what I mean by clarity…
Let’s say you are wanting to manifest more money into your life. There are things starting to break down in your house and you are feeling like you could really use a good holiday. You decide that you want the universe to bring some money to you, so you set about asking for that money to appear.
You might say an affirmation like “Thank you universe for bringing me increasing money on a daily basis” or “My bank account is increasing every day” or “Wealth is coming to me from expected and unexpected sources”.
Well, I have absolutely no issues with these affirmations except for one fact. Although they are helping you to change your beliefs around money by programming your subconscious mind, they are not very clear affirmations when it comes to telling the universe what you are really wanting.
The universe may hear these affirmations and send you an extra $10 today. It has brought you what you asked for. You asked for increased money daily and for your bank account to be increasing every day. You may have even received this $10 from expected and unexpected sources. However, is that amount enough to pay for your holiday or to pay for things to be repaired in your house. I highly doubt it.
So, instead of being vague about what it is you want it is important to be clear. Decide on what you are wanting to spend the money on, break it down into how much it will cost you, create your manifestation list and then decide that is what you will ask the universe for.
Say this was all going to come to $50,000, you could use an affirmation like “Thank you universe for bringing me the $50,000 I requested and for continuing to bring me wealth from expected and unexpected sources on a daily basis.”
This affirmation is clear and concise and lets the universe know exactly what you are asking for. You have been clear about the amount and about what you expect in the future. Writing great affirmations will be covered in further details later on in the book.
The other example I would like to give you is one to do with relationships. Let’s say you wanted to manifest a new partner. Knowing exactly what you are looking for in a partner is critical because otherwise you may end up with a person that is not suited to you.
Write down ALL the qualities you are desiring from this individual and make sure you don’t leave anything out. When asking the universe, you need to visualise that person and all the qualities that they possess.
I know somebody that was wanting to manifest a new relationship. She wrote down all the qualities that she could think of when it came to the person she wanted to partner up with. Then the universe answered her prayers and sent her the person that fitted every criterion on her list.
However, although she thought she had put everything down on her list she forgot a very important criterion. She should have put on the list that he was to be unmarried. But because she was not clear as to what she was desiring, the universe sent her somebody fitting the criteria she had set but unfortunately, he was married.
If she were clearer about her ideal partner, this person wouldn’t have manifested.
Please note: This article is from my book “Alter Your Money Mindset” which can be found on Amazon, which is why it is based on money, but it can be applied to anything you are wanting to manifest…
