Terminology dictionary to lift LOA up, into a the spiritual field, and a functional practice.
Definition: Doership refers to the belief or tendency of individuals to take on the role of God or ultimate creator, attempting to exert direct control over every aspect of manifestation or desired outcomes. Aka micromanaging.
Client: “I’ve been trying to breathe my lungs and make it happen, but it’s not working!”
Me: “It seems like you’re caught in a state of doership, where you’re trying to micromanage the process. Remember, manifestation involves a partnership between your intentions and the natural flow of the universe, your job is simply done after the inhale, and then the molecules exchange themselves.”
Me: “I’ve been working tirelessly to force my desires into existence, but nothing seems to be happening!”
Coach: “It appears that you’re stuck in a state of doership, trying to play the role of God. Instead, focus on setting intentions, taking inspired actions, and allowing the universe to co-create with you.”
The term “doership” is used here in the context of understanding the tendency to micromanage the manifestation process.
Definition: Fulfillment bias refers to intentionally training the brain to adopt a biased perspective that aligns with the desired manifestation or goal, focusing on thoughts, information, and experiences that support the fulfillment of that goal while avoiding negative or limiting beliefs.
Person A: “I’ve been struggling with manifesting financial abundance. Every time I search online, I end up reading articles about financial hardships and scarcity.”
Person B: “It sounds like you’re experiencing a lack bias. Instead of seeking out information that reinforces lack, shift your focus to thoughts, resources, and success stories that align with financial abundance. Train your brain to be fulfillment biased, towards wealth and prosperity.”
Person A: “I want to manifest optimal health, but I keep getting influenced by negative health news and stories about illnesses.”
Person B: “You might be falling into an illness bias trap. Instead of seeking confirmation of illness and limitations, rewire your brain to be fulfillment biased towards wellness and vibrant health. Surround yourself with positive information, practices, and examples of individuals who have achieved optimal health.”
The term “fulfillment bias” is a manifestation concept. It is used here to describe the intentional training of the brain to focus on thoughts and information that support the desired manifestation, while avoiding negative or limiting information and beliefs.
And in contrast of course:
- Anxiety Bias: Anxiety bias refers to the tendency of the mind to prioritize and amplify potential threats or negative outcomes, leading to an increased focus on anxious thoughts and feelings. Individuals with anxiety bias often perceive situations as more dangerous or threatening than they actually are, which can result in heightened anxiety and fear-based responses.
Example: Sarah has an anxiety bias, and as a result, she constantly anticipates negative outcomes and worries excessively about potential dangers in everyday situations. This bias leads her to interpret neutral or ambiguous situations as threatening, causing heightened anxiety levels.
- Negativity Bias: Negativity bias is the psychological phenomenon where the mind gives more weight and attention to negative information or experiences compared to positive ones. It is the tendency to remember negative events more vividly and for longer periods, and to be more influenced by negative feedback or criticism.
Example: John has a strong negativity bias, which means he tends to dwell on past failures and rejections, often overlooking his accomplishments and positive experiences. This bias influences his self-perception and can contribute to feelings of self-doubt and low self-esteem.
Both anxiety bias and negativity bias can impact our thoughts, emotions, and behavior.
Definition: Manifestation vertigo refers to the state of experiencing fear, panic, or anxiety when one shifts their focus from the state of the wish fulfilled to the perceived limitations of their current reality or circumstances.
Person A: “I was so excited about manifesting my dream job, but when I saw the rejection email, I started doubting myself and feeling anxious.”
Person B: “It seems like you’re experiencing manifestation vertigo. Remember, staying focused on the state of the wish fulfilled is essential. Don’t let temporary setbacks or external circumstances shake your belief. Keep your gaze fixed on your desired outcome and trust that it will manifest.”
Person A: “I’ve been visualizing my ideal relationship, but whenever I see couples going through a rough patch, I start questioning if it’s possible for me.”
Person B: “It sounds like you’re encountering manifestation vertigo. Don’t let external examples of relationship challenges deter you. Stay fully focused on the state of the wish fulfilled, visualizing the love, harmony, and fulfillment you desire. Keep your faith strong and continue aligning your thoughts and actions with your desired relationship.”
The term “manifestation vertigo” is used here to describe the state of fear or anxiety that arises when one shifts their focus from the desired outcome to the perceived limitations of their current reality.
Definition: Divine perception refers to the ability to see beyond the illusions of duality and perceive the underlying fabric of oneness, guided by the all-encompassing perspective of the divine or higher consciousness.
Person A: “I used to get caught up in the appearances of separation and limitation, but now I practice divine perception. It allows me to see beyond the illusions and recognize the interconnectedness of all things.”
Person B: “That’s incredible! How does divine perception influence your manifestations?”
Person A: “By perceiving from the eye of God, I align my thoughts and actions with the truth of oneness. Instead of being swayed by external circumstances, I focus on the inherent unity and abundance, which empowers my manifestations to unfold effortlessly.”
Person A: “I’ve been struggling to manifest my desired financial abundance. Sometimes, it feels like the world is against me.”
Person B: “Have you considered practicing divine perception? It can shift your perspective and help you align with the infinite abundance of the universe.”
Person A: “Tell me more about it.”
Person B: “Divine perception allows you to see beyond the limited appearances of lack and recognize the abundant nature of the universe. By perceiving with the eye of God, you tap into the truth of oneness and open yourself to receive the blessings and opportunities that are already present.”
The term “divine perception” is created here to capture the essence of seeing beyond the veil of illusion and perceiving the underlying unity and abundance. It represents a spiritual perspective that guides one’s manifestations with the understanding of oneness.
Definition: Divine projection refers to the understanding that everything in the external world is a reflection of the divine consciousness within oneself. It emphasizes the recognition that the outer reality is an expression of God or the divine source, and one’s own consciousness plays a role in shaping and manifesting that external reality.
Person A: “I’ve been exploring different manifestation teachings, and I’ve come across this concept of divine projection. It suggests that everything we perceive in the world is a reflection of God or the divine source.”
Person B: “That’s fascinating! How does divine projection differ from other perspectives?”
Person A: “Instead of seeing everything as merely a reflection of myself, I tap into the deeper understanding that everything is an expression of God. It allows me to connect with the divine consciousness within myself and recognize the divine essence in all aspects of life.”
Person A: “I used to struggle with taking full responsibility for my manifestations based on the idea of ‘everything is yourself pushed out.’ But now, I’ve embraced the concept of divine projection.”
Person B: “What does divine projection entail?”
Person A: “Divine projection acknowledges that everything in the outer world is a projection of the divine consciousness. It shifts my perspective from solely focusing on myself to recognizing the divine presence and influence in all situations and individuals. This understanding deepens my connection with the divine and expands the possibilities for manifestation.”
The term “divine projection” is created here to capture the concept of perceiving the outer reality as a manifestation of the divine consciousness or God. It offers an alternative perspective to the idea of “everything is yourself pushed out” (EIYPO) by emphasizing the divine essence within oneself and its role in shaping the external world.
Definition: Sensory embodiment refers to the practice of engaging all four senses of sight, smell, touch, and sound to create a vivid and immersive imaginal scene during the manifestation process. It emphasizes the active participation of the senses in the imaginative visualization, enhancing the first-person experience and deepening the manifestation potential.
Person A: “I’ve been exploring different techniques for manifesting, and I came across the concept of sensory embodiment. It emphasizes the importance of engaging all our senses in the imaginal scene.”
Person B: “That sounds interesting! How does sensory embodiment differ from traditional visualization?”
Person A: “With sensory embodiment, we go beyond just visualizing images in our mind. We actively involve all our senses – sight, smell, touch, and sound – to create a fully immersive experience. It’s like stepping into a movie scene and feeling the reality of it in our whole being. It adds a deeper level of engagement and makes the manifestation process more powerful.”
Person A: “I used to struggle with visualizing my desired manifestations. It felt distant and disconnected from my actual experience.”
Person B: “So, how did you overcome that?”
Person A: “I discovered the power of sensory embodiment. Instead of just relying on visualization, I started incorporating all my senses into the process. I would imagine the scene not only visually but also engage my sense of smell, touch, and sound. This made the experience more real and alive in my mind. It brought me closer to the feeling of already having what I desired, and the results were remarkable.”
The term “sensory embodiment” is coined here to capture the essence of engaging all four senses in the imaginal scene during the manifestation process. It emphasizes the active participation of the senses to create a more immersive and realistic experience, moving beyond traditional visualization.
