Don’t make manifesting a battle, or you will manifest a battle!
In yesterdays blog I talked about planting the right kind of seeds in the right kind of soil, that is, minding your intentions, and fostering a good mindset. Today, we’ll adress the problem of unwanted, unessesary, incessant or spiralling thoughts.
The key to successful manifestation is to foster a mental environment that supports your desires, allowing the positive seeds to grow and flourish while naturally overshadowing the unwanted ‘weeds’ of doubt and negativity. Engaging in a battle with unwanted thoughts, will NOT bring your manifestations to pass any sooner, rather it slows down your progress.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’ “ ‘An enemy did this,’ he replied. “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’“ ‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them.Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’ ”Jesus Te Messiah
The parable provides an analogy to the seeds sown in our minds to come to Christ Consiousness, but of course the same rules apply to the practice of the Law of Assumption for manifestation.
Put down your weapons
In practical terms, this parable encourages a crucial understanding for manifesters: the importance of being mindful of the thoughts and ideas we allow to take root in our minds. The good seeds, representing positive, empowering thoughts aligned with your desired manifestations, need to be sown purposefully and nurtured. However, similar to the parable’s depiction, negative or contrary thoughts—referred to as ‘weeds’—might also take root unintentionally. It is HUMAN NATURE, and it is unavoidable, so don’t feel bad if you too are strugling with unwanted thoughts, but what do we do then?
Implementing this knowledge practically involves:
- Mindful Seed Sowing: Actively sow and nurture positive, empowering thoughts aligned with your desired manifestations. Just like the man sowing good seed in his field, consciously plant thoughts and beliefs that align with your desired reality.
- Guarding Your Mental Garden: While you’re focused on nurturing positive thoughts, recognize that negative or contradictory thoughts might also creep in. Similar to the weeds sowed among the wheat, these opposing thoughts can hinder your manifestations.
- Conscious Awareness: Continuously monitor your mental landscape, identifying and uprooting negative thoughts when they appear. This involves recognizing the weeds—unwanted thoughts that oppose your desires—and consciously working to replace them with positive, affirming beliefs.
- Patience and Non-Interference: The parable advises patience and non-interference in uprooting the weeds immediately, as it might “damage the growth of the wheat.” Similarly, in manifestation, rushing to eradicate negative thoughts might cause disruption or doubt in your positive beliefs. Practice patience and allow the positive manifestations to grow alongside, overshadowing the negative aspects. Thsi involves a method known as “Be Still And Know That I AM God”. In otherwords, notice, relax, accept, don’t stress, just see it for what it is and keep on keepin on.
- Focused Harvesting: Lastly, at the ‘harvest’—the fruition of your manifestations—acknowledge and separate the unwanted aspects from the desired ones. This might involve consciously letting go of the negative beliefs and focusing solely on the positive outcomes. It is a learning process, so when you see the negative manifestations, just let it go. Yes, it snuk in there, no it doesn’t matter, just let it go and focus on the good that also came along. In other words, and attitude of gratitude at this point will remove the fully grown and harvested weeds.
Burning the weeds of the mind
In the context of manifestation, the parable’s concept of burning the weeds and preserving the wheat symbolizes a significant strategy:
- Burning the Weeds: ‘Burning the weeds’ signifies consciously releasing or letting go of the negative, unwanted beliefs or thoughts that have grown alongside the desired manifestations. Acknowledge their presence without giving them power, and then deliberately release them. This process frees mental space, allowing room for the positive beliefs to flourish. Acceptance is the name of the game.
- Preserving the Wheat: Saving the ‘wheat’—the desired manifestations—involves consciously reinforcing and nurturing the positive beliefs, thoughts, and intentions. Bolster these positive beliefs. The idea is to continuously focus on and nurture the desired outcomes, allowing them to grow and flourish. Affirmations, scripting, imaginal scenes, and inner conversations are all examples of “preserving the wheat”.
- Reinforcement through Action: Beyond mental practices, taking tangible action aligned with your desired manifestations further cultivates the ‘wheat.’ This could involve making decisions, choices, or engaging in activities that reinforce the positive beliefs you wish to manifest. Actions serve as a means to affirm and strengthen the beliefs in desired outcomes in the physical realm.
