What magic allows the acorn to become the mighty oak?
This is the fourth and final article in my series, The Art of Consciously Creating.
This series of articles can only provide an overview of the process - there are many places where we, as individuals, can and will get hung up as we practice this path. We all have obstacles that are specific to ourselves. Each one of our paths is unique. If I was taking you through this path as a client, we might have to focus a lot of time in one area, and even bounce around this process or do it several times, each time piercing down to a deeper level of truth. Many times the clearing of old beliefs is a process that takes considerable time, so you may move forward with this over months or even years as you dig down through the layers of blocks you have accumulated. That's OK. That is the process. You might find that you are so entrenched in the limiting beliefs and framework of obligations and other people's experiences and opinions that have been handed down to you that just doing step one, where you figure out what really lights you on fire, is impossible, and before you can really get to that, you have to do a lot of the clearing work. That's OK too. Take a sense of the whole process and try to apply it objectively. You may bounce around the steps for a while, each time honing and getting down deeper through the layers to the authentic you. (This is a perfect way to use the monthly lunar cycles described in Part III to help your process.)
Staying in the Current
Once you've aligned with your path, consciously creating your life is a lot like trying to row a raft down a river. As the current carries you towards your destination, you must continually observe and make small adjustments to stay in the current. If you stay aligned with the current, the current will do most of the work. But you must stay engaged with the process, making adjustments, avoiding obstacles, and remaining willing to go where the current takes you without grabbing onto a tree and resisting out of fear of what lies ahead.
Working through the process outlined in these articles, you have found that which sets your soul on fire, you have become aware of the beliefs that limit you, and you have taken the power back to use your mind in service to your goals by creating new belief and thought patterns.
In these ways you have created a supportive environment that will nurture your intentions into reality. Now you must get to the work of making your ideal real, by taking action steps toward your desires, but in a way that works with the current (the energy flow) and not against it.
You must stay in the current of your desires by staying present and trusting and following your inner guidance. This allows you to make adjustments as you go to stay in the flow of the current, instead of battling against it.
In this final article, I want to share with you the five requirements to manifesting an intention. Understanding these will help you as you create. "Create" means to bring into being something that was not there before. By default it requires you to step into the unknown and think and act differently. You cannot stay in the familiar. This means you will probably encounter some fear. It is helpful to acknowledge this up front. Feeling fear in this case does not mean anything is "wrong". Fear in this case means that you are actually on the right path, if you are intending to create, because it means you have stepped out of the familiar.
And now, in closing, I want to recap the process that these four articles have defined. These are the basics for successfully manifesting an intention, and they define the process of taking that little seed of an idea and making space for it and nurturing it, not allowing the weeds of limiting beliefs and fear to drain its life force or steal its sunshine.
This is the Art of Consciously Creating your Life. It requires skill and creativity, and we get better with practice. We are always in a constant state of consciously creating our lives, and if we give this process attention, just like anything else, we will become more and more adept at it.
So here is to the practice of consciously creating. May you manifest what your heart most deeply desires.
