I once watched a video of author, Dolores Cannon, in which she mentioned that one of the keys of manifesting is to pretend that you already have what it is that you want. The key is to have it set in your mind that you already have what you want. According to Dolores, because you are saying that whatever you want is truly reality, the universe will respond accordingly. Everything will be set into motion and will be aligned so that whatever you want manifests.
Through the blessing of Claircognizance (when previously unknown knowledge and information flows through to you automatically), I was also given the following suggestions for manifesting: 1) If negative thoughts or thoughts of lack automatically come into your mind, push them away immediately, and refuse to accept them. Strongly state in your mind that you already have what it is that you want. 2) Do not think that whatever you want “will” manifest in the future, because then you may always be in a state of projecting whatever you want into the future and not in the present moment. When thoughts of “will” come into your mind, reject them, and replace them with a statement that suggests that you already have what you want. Focus on the fact that you already have what it is that you want right now, in the present moment.
Long before I watched Dolores' video, years ago when I was beginning to go through a profound spiritual awakening, I was so thrilled with my newfound ability to communicate with loved ones who had passed away. I read about many other intuitive abilities and eagerly wanted to experience those as well. My mind automatically believed that in addition to communicating with my departed loved ones, I was also extremely psychic and possessed other intuitive abilities such as Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, premonitions, prophecy, healing, etc. even though I had never recalled experiencing those abilities in my life previously. Sure enough, not long after my mind was set that I was already extremely psychic and already possessed the intuitive abilities that I wanted to possess, I did actually begin to experience more psychic phenomena. Gradually over a period of a few years, I experienced almost all psychic phenomena at one time or another. Now, I currently operate from an intuitive level on a daily basis. It is my compass that guides me through my whole day. I could not imagine my life without it. I am not limited to operating from my five physical senses. I have an extremely strong 6th sense that I operate from much more than I do from the physical senses.
So, the next time you feel that you need something, erase the thought of “need” from your mind, and replace it with thoughts that you already have it. Truly believe that you actually have whatever it is that you want, and feel the emotions of joy, excitement, or whatever emotions you feel for whatever it is that you want. Do not think that it “will” manifest in the future. Focus on the fact that you already have what it is that you want right now, in the present moment.
