Those who want to stay on our evolving planet need to trust the resources available to adapt and not give in to victimhood. In the midst of what appears as chaos, it is possible to carve out a preferred existence. We have all been given the raw material and ability to accomplish this. It has been so long since we used the system, we have forgotten how it works and even that it exists. But our forgetting about it has not caused it to go away. The manifestation machinery has been operating on the 'default' settings instead of directed input. It has been dutifully pumping out imprinted images. There is no screening mechanism for determining image worthiness. The electricity of emotion brings the images to life with no consideration of good or bad.
Therefore, the key to positive manifestation lies in only investing emotion in that which is desired. If everything else receives no life, it will fade away. Emotional reaction invests in the recreation of whatever is causing the emotion. This is why so much of life has become 'vicious circles.' Anger, fear and guilt are hot, intense emotions that are powerful manifesters. One must learn to not react to what one does not want. Understanding this process will make that a little easier.
* I wrote this article a few years ago in an effort to illustrate the process that I am privileged enough to be able to watch in motion. I wish to add that since I wrote this, I have been taught the benefits of complete surrender and trusting the input from my heart as opposed to thinking that I know what I want. If a desire is coming only from my mind it will always be limited because my mind is not aware of all the possibilities.
At this point in our evolutionary cycle, the process of manifestation is being rediscovered. It is a rude awakening for those who suddenly realize we are responsible for creating the circumstances we have endured. Many have found it much more comforting to think of themselves as victims, rather than facing accountability for their own creation. However, once the initial shock wave has passed through, there comes a new feeling of hope through the realization that our lives are in our own hands and if we don't like it, we can change it.
The manifestation machine (MM) is basically very simple. Once there is understanding of how it works, it can be programmed to bring forth our deepest heart's desires.
The magnetic material is called akasha. It is a very pliable, fluid material that takes on the form of the image being projected on to its surface. Instead of reading the letters and symbols of the computer languages, it reads pictures - images that we see and project. These pictures make up the blueprints from which the MM creates.
The subconscious mind is constantly bombarded with millions of images from all the eyes (the 'third' or 'mind's' eye also projects images to the subconscious mind). The MM is equipped with a filtering system based on the depth the image is imprinted into the akasha. Images that are seen and do not evoke an emotional response are passed over. Images that sink in continue on in the manifestation process.
Imprints (images with depth) are stored in the data banks until they reach the depth required for punching out into reality. An image that evokes a strong emotional response will come to life very quickly. Conversely, an image that evokes only mild reaction would take many repetitions to meet manufacturing requirements.
Key Point: The manifestation machine is not designed to discriminate between positive and negative emotions. It only measures the degree of emotion - how much electrical charge surrounds this image - how much heat is being generate. It has no way of knowing if the feeling is good or bad. When the feeling generates enough heat to imprint the image to manifestation depth - out it comes, with no judgment as to good or bad. It is simply what was requested via imprint. Fear is a powerful manifesting force. When fear is evoked by an image, this hot emotion imprints deeply and propels the image towards reality.
At this point the manifestation machine has completed processing. However, the mind often creates a barrier or bottleneck at the end of the chute, holding back the delivery. The mind erects these barriers through an assortment of triggers such as undeservability or incredulity. A tug-of-war occurs between what is truly wanted and what it is thought to be available. If and when the mind surrenders, the barriers drop and dreams come true.
When the mind surrenders to the leadership of the heart, a whole new system of divine guidance becomes activated. Imprinted images stored within the heart are reflected up to the mind. The manifestation machine is then accepting input from the unlimited resources of the divine connection through the heart instead of the very limited selection available from data collected by the mind.
Once again, this can be illustrated through a comparison with computers. In the mind-directed approach, the operator is sitting in front of a computer screen keying in the specifications of what he or she thinks they want based on data stored in the mind. This process usurps the time and energy of the operator. In the alternate heart-directed mode, the operator simply inserts the programmed magnetic disk from the heart directly into the computer. The operator is now free to focus all his or her energy on enjoying the moment at hand.
This heart-directed mode places the machine on auto-pilot, allowing the pilot to fully enjoy the trip. As the pilot, one can relax completely, trusting that the heart's navigation. Surrendering the 'need to know' about what is going to happen next and how it is going to happen, accesses the power of adaptation = flow. From this comes the knowledge which creates peace of heart and mind . . . peace that passes all understanding.
