Fear of Manifesting

One of the loop holes I have seen many people fall into while working with the concept of a law of attraction is that it seems almost foreboding. As if there is a force void of compassion or understanding which automatically creates every thought we have. That is a pretty scary idea, especially before we have attained mastery over our attention.

I have watched so many people struggle to control their thoughts for fear that they will create something harmful.

The idea that the untamed mind has the power to instantly create is a pretty terrifying thought. Even the ego is afraid of this.

Imagine a 6-year-old child being left alone with no rules whatsoever. At first he might be excited for the freedom. The unbridled opportunity to explore and choose whatever he wants would be an adrenaline rush. That rush would be followed by fear as the little one realized he did not feel the capacity to keep himself safe.

This is how the mind feels about the idea that it has full power to create in an instant.

I remember years ago, back when I was very sick, on the verge of death. My children were young. I wanted to live but I felt death hovering over me for months. I literally saw it as an image of a door in my peripheral vision.

I was terrified that if I allowed myself to think about it, give it any attention, I would die, abandoning my babies.

I prayed. I chanted Mantras. I meditated.

I did everything I could to create the path I was intending. When thoughts of exhaustion and pain came over me, I fought them for fear that they would overtake me and lead me towards that door of death.

I reached a point in which my mental exhaustion caught up to my physical exhaustion. If I could have willed myself into health, I would have done it a thousand times over but still that door to death hovered in my peripheral vision. Then one evening I could not take it anymore. I decided to walk through the door; to face whatever it led me to.

I walked through the door of death in my imagination, not knowing whether it would lead to my physical death. Peace overcame me. The battle of my mind silenced. It was blissful and calming at the same time. I felt complete surrender. My heart, mind, and spirit were once again aligned with source energy. I simply rested into that space. No intention, no need to control, just open to receive.

I will never know how long I was in that space. It was a space beyond time.

Then the phone rang drawing my attention back to the physical world. I answered the phone still in surrendered peace. A man on the other end said, “God directed me to call this number right now. I do not know why, but I am calling because I was told I needed to.”

This was not a dream. I was up and walking around during this phone conversation. I told the stranger on the other end that I had been lingering between life and death and his call had brought me back. I thanked him. We hung up and I never heard from him again. Oh, and within a few days, I regained my health.

This is the power of manifesting. It is more than a thought or an intention. It is the full alignment of thoughts, feelings, and Source energy.

We don’t have to be afraid of our thoughts. On their own, thoughts are not that powerful. Which, if you have been trying to think your way to a new car you might have already figured out!

This is a wonderful thing actually!!!

The true power of Manifesting comes in our full alignment with Source. In this space we can only create perfection. When we are not fully aligned in our remembrance, we create only the opportunity that supports us in remembering we are one with All That Is.

So, the fear of our power to create is no longer necessary.
