I came across a great formula for manifesting, that hit me rather like a slam as I was preparing a presentation. I've used it for decades without realizing it; so simple and easy to apply that I incorporated into a 5 step plan.
I used it with myself as an example, and someone you would know, say, Freddie Mercury, so you can see it as it works.
1) Find out what you want
Even if you don’t know what your ultimate dream is, you can find something small that you want right now.
At a point in my life at about 30, I didn’t know what I wanted in my life, I just wanted out of the rut I was in. I found out what I wanted for today, or this weekend – perhaps to go for a walk in the woods or a bike ride along the river. I knew each day, slowly, my life had improved. What I didn’t know was that I was inching my way to the life I wanted.
Freddy always knew what he wanted, or it appears that way. He lived for his music, to be a rock star – and he got it.
2) Find your Tribe
Hang out with like-minded people who support you.
I found an outdoor program, where I could go on hiking trips and enjoy a group of people who also enjoyed what I did. I knew I was happy, and slowly discovering my passion.
Freddie had Queen. The band supported and encouraged him and created together.
3) Follow your passion
Whatever your passion is – what makes you feel joy, even for a while - do it as often as possible.
My passion changes, too. At that early time in my life, I discovered snowboarding. I couldn’t afford to go very often, but I signed up on budget group trips with the outdoor program, and kept going. I felt exhilarated when I was gliding on the snow. I knew in those moments, I had found utter bliss.
Freddy, of course, had his passion in music, and most of the pieces he wrote, had a connection in his soul.
4) Set an intention
When you know what you want, write it down, and allow the Universe or the Divine to bring it to you. Hint: It helps if you forget about it.
After all the time spent with my new friends, eventually something was missing in my life – a partner. I wrote down a wish for a man who enjoyed all the things I loved, and would be compatible with me. Within 3 months, I was dating a man who shared my passions. We’ve been happily married for 11 years. I met him within a week of writing it down, but somehow forgotten about my wish. I found it written 2 years later.
I’m sure Freddie set intentions, too. Whether he wrote them down, or stated them, he achieved everything he set out to do.
5) Just say no
Say no to anything that goes against your dream, goal or your what’s in your heart.
I don’t listen to anyone who prevents me from doing what I want to do.
Freddie argued with record companies, the band and anyone else who tried to convince him of doing something he didn’t want.
See if this works for you, try it, and play around with the steps. If you can do it most of the time, following your passion, you’ll be on the right track.
I'd love to hear how it works for you. Please comment below with your experience.
