You Are a Powerful Manifestor. How to Make It Easier by Co-Creating
How to make your job of manifestation easier by allowing the Universe to do its job of co-creating with you
Your job is to manifest. The Universe’s job is to create
You are the pilot of your plane. As the pilot, you don’t push the plane forward. The engines do that. You don’t lift the aircraft off the ground. The magic of aerodynamics does that. Your job is to choose the direction, navigate and fly the plane.
The same is true in manifesting. You don’t do the creating. Something much bigger and more powerful than you does that. If you want to conceive a child, choosing to have sex is the easiest way to do it. After the sexual act, the magic of the Universe takes over. Thank God you don’t have to worry about the actual creation process. It is far too complicated. Your part is easier and a lot more fun!
However, just as the Universe will not create a child for you without you choosing to have sex, it will not manifest your desire without you first choosing it. If you climb into the cockpit of a plane and sit there, nothing happens. You must know where you want to go and choose the destination.
Know what you want
“The first secret of getting what you want is knowing what you want.” — Arthur D. Hlavaty
How will the Universe manifest if you don’t know what you want?
Too often, people do not know what they truly desire. Be clear in what you desire. Choose it and set your intent that it is so. A good pilot tells the plane where to go and takes the aligned actions that enable the aircraft to do its job, to fly to the destination. As the pilot of your life, your job is to be clear in what you desire, to choose the desire, and to set your intention that it manifests. It is the Universe’s job to bring it into creation. Do your part, and the Universe will do its part. This is the magic and power of co-creation.
Choose what you want
“It’s choice — not chance — that determines your destiny.” — Jean Nidetch
Wanting something is not the same as choosing something
There is a difference between wanting something to manifest and choosing something to manifest. The latter engages your intent. Intent is the combination of will and desire. Choose what you desire and engage your will that it will be so.
If you are efforting, you are doing the Universe’s job
Engaging your will does not require effort. If you are efforting, you are trying to do the Universe’s job. By combining your chosen desire and your will, you send your intention out into the Universe. The Universe then starts doing its job of lining up the probabilities to bring your desire into manifestation.
Surrendering without first choosing is not doing your job
I knew a woman who was very tuned into her guides. She would often have conversations with them. She believed that surrendering to the will of God was the way. She would constantly say to her guides, “Thy will be done. They will be done.”
One day I met her, and she was visibly upset. I asked her what was wrong, and she said that whenever she repeated ‘Thy will be done,’ to her guides, they would always answer her back, ‘What do you want?’ She would answer back, ‘I want your will to be done. I surrender to you.’ They would inevitably answer the same question, ‘What do you want?’
Surrender and Let Go
“The greatness of a man’s power is the measure of his surrender.” — William Booth
Choose then Surrender
Surrender is important, but you need to know what you desire and choose it. When asked what you desire, many people say I don’t know. Or they respond with a surface desire that changes the next time you ask them. If you don’t set the plane’s direction, where will it fly? How will the Universe manifest if you don’t know what you desire? Once you have made a clear choice and set your intention to be, then allow the Universe to do Its job by surrendering to it.
Let it all go
Once you have chosen what you desire and put your intent behind it, let it go. By letting go, you allow the Universe to do its magic. Too often, people try to hold on tight and control how the manifestation will look. Doing so limits and can even stop the manifestation from occurring. When you surrender and let go, you will often be surprised as the manifestation will be bigger and better than anything you could have imagined.
You are a powerful manifestor. Manifesting is part of the reason you are here in-body on planet earth. As you manifest, you grow and expand. The Transcendental Self that you are becomes larger from the experience of your expansion. By clearly delineating your job of manifesting and the Universe’s job of creating, your manifestation process will be more powerful, and you will carry it out with ease. This is the secret of co-creation, working together with the Universe and its unlimited power of creation.
