You Don't Have To Know How (or Even What)

One of our stumbling blocks when it comes to manifesting is that we get stuck with the question of how we are going to do it. Our dreams and desires seem so out of reach, so beyond us, we don't know how we're going to achieve them.

The problems we are dealing with seem so immense, so insurmountable, we don't know how we're going to overcome them.

We feel so mired in the situation we're in, we only know we don't want to be here, but can't imagine what it would be like to be out of it. That's okay. You don't have to know how (or even what).

In fact, in some way, not knowing how or what is a good thing.  Our best thinking got us into this, so using the same thinking is only going to create more of the same.

When we are manifesting change, it is a collaboration between the little will and the greater Will. It's a co-creation of our Selves and Consciousness and our personality.

You just have to set your sights on what you want to manifest. It may be specific, such as a new job or relationship, travel, a house, etc. Being specific is useful, because it gives parameters of the manifestation to materialize.

Setting your sights points you in the right direction, and here is where we trip ourselves up. Then our little will starts furiously paddling towards the desired thing. But we're in a sailboat, in an ocean.

The greater Will is the wind and the ocean current.

Manifestation comes easily and effortlessly when we focus towards what we want, and then we allow for whatever it is that will either carry us there or bring it to us.

Often the How doesn't show up until you've stated your intention, until you've committed to taking inspired action. Stating your intention is setting the direction. Commitment is raising your sails. Allowing is taking up the anchor.

What if you don't know what your intention is? You only know that you're boat is in uncharted waters. You just want to feel better.

Aim towards feeling better. You don't have to know what, or what it looks like. Aim towards the feeling.

People confuse getting out of their own way, with not doing anything. Getting out of your own way means not taking counterproductive actions, like trying to control everything down to the smallest details.

Or they think surrendering to the process means to give up or stop trying. It really means to let go of effort (which blocks creativity).

The little will wants to huff and puff into that mighty sail. That may be why you've tried for years to accomplish something and it never happens.

Once you get the knack of all of this, creating your reality becomes great fun.

Even though you are creating everything as Consciousness down to the smallest detail, you're not *controlling* it down to the smallest detail.

Your purpose in life, your purpose on this planet, is to create, to express your creativity. And you're already doing it.

As Consciousness, there are no ethics. To Consciousness, there is no good, no bad. It's equally creative to manifest disasters as it is miracles.

Where do you want to set sail to?
