“Enlightenment means merely aligning to the energy of my Source. And genius is only about focusing. The Law of Attraction takes care of anything else. Physical humans often want to make enlightenment about finding some process and moving through the process that has been pre-described. But true enlightenment is moving to the rhythm of the internal inspiration that is coming in response to the individual desire.” Abraham (Channeled by Esther Hicks)
Are you often successful at manifesting what you want? Do you find manifesting your desires challenging? How do you deal with the success or failure of your efforts?
I am always surprised and delighted by the way that my desires manifest. Although I have worked with the Law of Attraction for many years and understand that it is based on the laws of energy, I am still often amazed by the manifestation. When I remind myself that it is available to us all through our connection to Source, I am reminded again how important being able to connect with Source is.
To Create, We Must Align With Source
The main question we often ask about this process is why does it work sometimes and not others. In order for the Law of Attraction to manifest what we want, we must first feel aligned with Source. Source is the spirit others refer to as God, Allah, the Universe, or Spirit. This means that we have to have discovered and established this connection, but it doesn’t have to be a part of a particular practice. It is a mystical connection and may come to us simply because we are open to the non-physical energy.
We may feel our connection to Source when we walk in the woods, relate to animals, love another human being, laugh, see the stars blazing at night, or are inspired by the beauty of poetry. When our heart opens, when we sense there is something greater than ourselves, and that we are more than our bodies, we have connected with Source. Anything that inspires us connects us to it.
We Must Connect With the Energy of Our Desire
So, how does this really work? We feel a desire. That creates an energy. The enlightenment to which Abraham refers is the energy we create from this desire. If we feel excited about the possibility of our desire coming true and that is followed by the feeling that we will be able to manifest this desire, we are creating a vibrational frequency that is most likely to manifest what we want.
For example, last year I participated in a bookfest but I didn’t sell many books. I asked the question, “Is this worth doing again?” It was clear to me that doing a presentation as part of the event would introduce me to more people who might want to buy the book. I wanted to speak on a topic that would attract writers and non-writers. Many people write memoirs only for their families, so I thought the topic of “Bringing Your Memoir to Life” would speak to everyone.
As I began writing an email to the person choosing the presenters with the description in it, I became very excited about my topic. I could see and feel myself before an attentive audience. Although I had no idea what the theme of the bookfest was, I felt positive energy bubbling up inside me. I sent the email, releasing it to the Universe, knowing that if it was a good match for me, this opportunity would manifest.
Positive Energy Manifests Positive Results
I was thrilled when I received an email from the person planning the event that my presentation topic fit perfectly with this year’s theme “Telling Our Stories.” I was invited to present and I enthusiastically accepted. The energy around this opportunity felt extremely positive. By surrounding my preparation with positive energy, but not attaching myself to the outcome, I created a vibration that drew to me a very beneficial opportunity.
Enlightenment Is Connected to Inspiration
According to Abraham, true enlightenment is about responding to the vibration of the inspiration we feel when a desire arises. Going against the positive inspirational energy sabotages the manifestation of our desire. We do this all the time. What if I had thought, “I’d like to present at the bookfest, but I’m not well-known enough. I’m sure they wouldn’t pick me,” or I don’t know what the theme is, so why bother.”
Our Passion Energizes Manifestation
This is why following our passion is so important. When we truly have a passion for an activity, the energy of that passion tends to draw to us what we need in order to manifest our desire. Understanding this and following this principle is the basis of enlightenment. It also means that we have to trust ourselves and our feelings about things. Some would call this intuition.
When our energy and feelings toward a person or event feel positive, we need to honor this attraction. It is someone or something that is being drawn to our lives for a reason that may not be obvious, but that may be beneficial. And when positive feelings well up inside us even when, practically, what we desire doesn’t seem possible, it is well worth our time to explore the possibilities. We never know when the impossible may become possible. It’s all up to us and Source.
