As we believe, so shall it be.
In the popular book The Secret, and all the related pop-culture myths on manifestation, it is said that our thought governs our ability to get what we want. In other words, “If we want something, all we need to do is think the right thoughts.” In this mythology, the opposite is also true, “If you are not getting what you want, it is because you have thought the wrong thoughts.”
While there may be some truth to these myths in causal (3D/duality) consciousness, in the world of Unity Consciousness none of this is true. If you are already living in Unity consciousness (or at the least, holding the intention to live from a place of Oneness), if we even try to think our way into manifesting, it will fail and likely blow up in our face.
In Unity consciousness, manifesting what we want isn’t even the question and thought has nothing to do with it. Instead, manifesting in Unity consciousness is about a process of emptying, being guided, believing, allowing, taking action where needed, and receiving.
First we have to be emptied of all perceptions and belief systems rooted in the false perception of separation. Most importantly, we have to be healed of all the inner wounds and fears that keep us from remembering our original nature as One with that which some might call “God,” One with ourselves, one with each other and one with all creation.
Then, from this place of intimate connection with Source/our Higher self, we free ourselves of our own plans, ideas, strategies, agendas, itineraries, need to know and to control and be open instead to Higher Guidance – the place where truth resides. We have to receive this truth and believe it no matter how startling, counter-cultural, life-altering it might be.
And then, we have to believe. Belief, I have learned is the key to manifesting the guidance we receive from that place of intimate connection with Source. As we believe it, so shall it be. This belief starts with perception. How do we judge the circumstances of our life and the world around us? If we believe that what we are seeing is negative and will lead to our destruction, then it will. If we believe that what we are seeing from a higher perspective, from the Divine perspective colored by love, then we will trust that it will unfold in our highest good (even if what is happening includes a loss, a failure or a disappointment.) Once we learn to guide our perception to the highest good, then we have faith and trust that all roads are leading to the fulfillment of the guidance we first received. As we believe it to be, it shall be so. Then, we allow the natural unfolding of this manifestation and we are open and willing to receive all we need for this dream to be made manifest. And if there is action to be taken on our part, the revelation and guidance of this comes, again, from this place of Oneness.
Emptying. Accepting Guidance. Believing. Allowing. Taking Action when guided. Receiving.
Let me offer a concrete example of this as I have witnessed it in the Catholic Church of my youth. Every day, while presiding over the mass, the priest takes a simple glass of wine and a plate of unleavened bread (or communion wafers), says a few words and prayers over them and viola, they are suddenly transformed into the body and blood of Christ. Yes, the appearance of the bread and wine remain, but the substance has been transformed (transubstantiation) into the body and blood of Christ. This transformation doesn’t not happen because the priest performed the “Jesus magic,” (though that is likely what some Catholics believe); it is because he and the people BELIEVE that the bread and wine have now been transformed so that they may receive the Presence of Christ in consuming the bread and the wine.
- Emptying so the will of the Divine can be fulfilled.
- Believing in the guidance and the manifestation of that guidance.
- Allowing it to be done through us.
- Taking action where guided.
- Receiving the manifestation of the Divine guidance.
And the bottom line: As we believe, so shall it be.
