We are always manifesting… just not always intentionally.  Like it or not, it’s true – we’re always creating what’s next for us even if we’re not aware of it.

If we want to manifest powerfully, with intent, there is a mindset and vibration that we must embrace and embody…

There is indeed a way you can invoke what you want.  But there’s a catch – it requires you to do your inner work. Because “manifesting,” in essence, means “becoming.”

What can block us from manifesting what we really want?

These ABCs are not as simple as 123 because our ego, inner-child and fears can hijack our intent.  That is where true mindfulness comes in… managing those fears and doubts.

But, there’s a way to bypass the harmful effects of those fears and doubts… with the ABC Formula for a Manifesting Mindset…

An ABC formula for manifesting what you want

Well actually, it’s really an AABC Formula. Here’s how it works…

A1 – Appreciate, appreciate, appreciate.

My mom always told me, “There will always be someone who has more and who has less than you – be grateful for what you do have.”  When I get triggered into a scarcity mindset I always remind myself of this:  You are on your own journey and you have everything you need to live your life’s purpose.

Gratitude is the gateway to manifesting all that you need, want and desire.  Always focus on what you do have first, and then go from there.

An advanced step — and a way to speed up the process — is to extend gratitude to what you desire as if you have already received it.

How do you know if you’re falling out of the flow of appreciation? When you start complaining and comparing.  We get hooked by comparison sometimes, right?

I usually know I’m blocking my flow when that little voice kicks in I ask myself: Why haven’t I done that yet?  What’s wrong with me?  I should be further along than I am…blah blah blah…

Comparing ourselves to others is a quick downward spiral to misery.  Appreciation can pull us out of that black hole, and another way to elevate ourselves out of this trap is by adopting an Abundance Mindset.

A2 – Abundance. 

You need to remind yourself that there is plenty to go around, and know that your time will come.

Keep focusing on what you are creating – yes creating – because you are never competing for resources, clients, or the next thing. 

The universe is plentiful and wants to reward you.  You just need to stay in the flow of what you are doing. AND when you notice that everyone around you has what you want, that just means that you are closer to having it for yourself.

This happens to me with my book. I’ve been writing for 3.5 years and everywhere I look, someone I know is launching their new book…

I often can find myself heading into a shame spiral and beating myself up about Why isn’t mine done? Will I ever finish it? Etc…

What I have come to realize is that this is just a sign of affirmation, a validation that I am one step closer and on the right path.  So instead of getting jealous or frustrated, I remind myself that if it happened for them, it can happen for me too and I am one step closer… and this lights a little fire under me to get myself writing!

So, remember the universe is always sending you signs of validation and encouragement – and sending you what you need.

B – Believe you are worthy of what you want.  Easier said than done…

This may require more soul searching and inner work.  Affirmations help, but are not enough.  You must demonstrate your worthiness through your actions, too.

This means honoring yourself and your boundaries. Raising your standards. Not settling…

Look at what you are attracting and ask yourself: do I need to raise my standards here?  Remember, like attracts like.

Ask yourself what internal shifts do I need to make in order to honor my own divinity to receive what I truly want/desire/deserve? This is where you regain your power. If you believe in your worth and respect yourself, others will too, and your world will begin to shift.

C – Clarity.  Be clear about what you WANT. 

You don’t need to know HOW it will happen – this is where we usually get tripped up… but remember, the universe will figure that part out for you.

If you’re not sure what you want, take a break and meditate or have an internal brainstorm with yourself and get your intentions crystal clear.  The more specific the better – remember your standards.

Connect with WHAT you truly want – without settling. Your soul knows.  Sit with yourself and allow it to come to you.

Your job is to figure out what it is and get clear on your next step – not how it will all play out – just one step you could take to get closer…

Then surrender the how to the universe. When we get too focused on the how, we disrupt the flow of things. That causes us to shift our expansive, enthusiastic energy to a fearful and doubtful place, and we block our way of manifesting.

Where are you blocking yourself?  Do a quick AABC scan and make some subtle shifts and see what opens up.
