“You are all worthy; if you weren’t all worthy, believe me, you would not exist, because creation does not make mistakes. Thus, if you exist you belong; there is a reason why creation is not complete without you. Stop arguing with creation. Take it at its word; if you exist, you deserve to exist and if you deserve to exist you deserve to be who you are as fully as you possibly can. This is just simple logic”. Darryl Anka
I have heard many variations of the basic laws of manifestation, how to create and live the highest expression of yourself, but the following steps based on the work of Darryl Anka offer the clearest and most inspiring template I have come across. If creation really is incomplete without us, then surely we have some sort of moral responsibility to honour the gift of ‘us’ by being ‘us’ in the highest expression we can manifest? Here are the 7 steps:
Step 1 – Find your vision
Where is your joy? What could you embody that would bring you the most peace, happiness and fulfillment? What is the way of living that allows you to most fully express your true self? This could be within a job, but generally is a way of life rather than a career choice. It will need to be for the benefit of others in some way if it is to give you that tingle of validation from your soul, rather than the less fulfilling and less enduring satisfaction that comes from soothing the wounded ego. Our souls are only satisfied by some form of expression of love in service.
In setting your vision, remember to make it a statement of intent rather than a route map. If you want to teach, set that simple goal as your vision, without expectation of grade, location, subject or timescales. Life could well have a mechanism to deliver your vision that is far beyond anything you could possibly imagine.
Step 2 – Give it your passion
Knowing what you want to do is important, but it is the raw desire you imbue into your vision that provides the energy to bring it to life. An idea needs the driving force of a racing pulse and your burning passion.
Step 3 – Believe it can happen
If you are excited about your vision, but do not believe it is possible or that you deserve all the joy it represents, then it will not happen. You will create exactly what you expect to receive, as little or as much as you can embrace within your sense of self-worth and within your faith in your creative powers. Creation is absolutely precise; you will get what you envisage to the exact extent that you believe it to be possible, safe and deserved.
This is the area I focus on most in a kinesiology session; I look to find and release all the shadow beliefs that stop you allowing your vision to take form.
Step 4 – Acceptance
Now is the time to accept that your vision, supported by your passion and your positive beliefs, must come true. There is no other way; this creative journey is inevitable. Embrace it as such.
Step 5 – Intention
Having an exciting vision in important, but you must also have the willpower and focus to bring this into effect. You will need to make the conscious choice that this new way of being is to become your reality. This is not about passion or desire, this is about clarity of intent, the dedication that takes your vision beyond a wistful dream to the clear statement that ‘this is who I am’.
Step 6 – Action
With this all in place, it is time to behave and live your life as though this vision is already in place. Ground the first 5 points into action through your words, body language and behaviour. As Ghandi once said – “be the change you want to see in the world”. If you want to be an artist, then paint, a writer, then write.
Step 7 – Allowance
Having set all of this in place, now let it go, utterly. Completely disconnect from any need for a specific outcome, let go of any expectation that it is either necessary or needed, that there is a right or wrong way for you to live your life. This is one of life’s many paradoxes, that to receive something you must let it go. This non-attachment greases the wheels of creation and allows you to effortlessly move from one plane of existence to another, from the life created by your old beliefs and perceived obligations to one based on your new joyous vision.
When you put all this into place, you will create your new reality and life will reflect that back to you. The key point here is that you need to take the first step, you cannot expect to be receptive of support in life unless you lead the creative process. I have heard people say ‘it was not meant to be’, as if creation has a specific list of what you are allowed and not allowed to do or become. I believe that the real truth here is that life is continuously reflecting back to you everything you are projecting through your beliefs, upbringing, genetics, community values, faith system, education and self-worth. As you have this power of creation, you might as well use it consciously. Why follow false trails from these tired old programmes, often based on duty and guilt, when you can create a loving and joy-filled life based on genuine free choice?
