Almost two weeks ago, the FriendZone featured a special guest, Maryam Hasnaa and I got my entire life. I’ve been hearing about manifesting for years but to hear her and Fran discuss it and use real life, recent and current experiences was mind blowing. Something about their experience ignited a flame in me, however. I found it completely fascinating that they spoke their current lives and situations into existence.

I set out on a mission to manifest and I manifested two things since that episode. Blew my own mind.
In the church, they call it speaking things into existence and walking by faith and not sight. Scriptural reference is important so I searched and was led to 1 John 3:20-22. I think the 22ndverse is the most important: “if our hearts do not condemn us.” Meaning if we remove the guilt, the shame, the negativity, we will receive what we desire because we can go confidently before God and ask.
Manifesting, for me, means not entertaining what I don’t want. I even stopped writing it in my journal.Writing it down or speaking it, gives the thing power that it doesn’t deserve. Too often, I talk about what I don’t want when it doesn’t matter. I realized that manifesting is about envisioning what I want and feeling as though I already have it. And then actually believing it will actually happen. I have started focusing on the feeling itself such as the happiness, freedom, joy and peace I would feel. In the end, that’s what we should be after anyway. Not the accolades or the accomplishment but the feelings that come from achieving. That’s what’s going to last. That’s what we’ll be able to tap into when we need to recharge and look back on where we’ve been.
Initially, I would believe the opposite but still expect good things which would release contradicting energies. Deep down, I wanted the good thing but I focused on the bad, the feeling of disappointment I would feel if it didn’t happen and of course, that’s what I would get. I also would focus on the how instead of letting God be God and trying to control the narrative.

I also realized it’s not the same for everyone. The way I manifest won’t be the same as anyone else. We all don’t have the same mental and spiritual blockage or wavelength so the challenge is to figure out what works for you. I’ve been reading and hearing about this for years but it wasn’t until recently that I realized what I needed to do. And I believe that’s for a reason as well. Had I mastered this in my twenties, I would’ve attracted and manifested some stuff and people that don’t belong or fit. At this point, I’m bout my business lol. I’m all about letting feelings and people come and go freely. I FINALLY realize I’m on a constant journey of growth and development. I still would’ve arrived to this place, however, because God’s plan.
I could go on and on about this. I’ve had crazy revelations this week. Know that manifesting is simply channeling your God given power within. You have been blessed with the authority to speak life into dead things and claim what’s rightfully yours. But that is where faith kicks in. You really have to see it before you see it. Get excited. Feel the feelings that come with it. Don’t be afraid or get scared or think about the possibility of it not coming to pass. Entertain only the thoughts in which you win and trust and believe that you will win. That’s the one thing we always tend to forget: in the end, we win. Nothing but dubs, forever.
As always, take what you need and leave the rest.
