Q: What is “manifestation”?

A: Manifestation is the ego’s word for recognizing what is already happening in the flow of life, and then trying to take ownership for it happening.

The true secret to “manifesting” is to step back into witness consciousness and see what is happening.  This is what people call being “psychic”.  A psychic sees what is happening, and what is most likely to happen in the near or distant future by observing the currents in life that are already happening, taking into account that things are interdependent on each other, and life tends to unfold in a cause and effect straight line appearance (more or less).

One thing leads to another, to another, and so on.  If one is more identified with the witness, who just watches things unfold, one gets totally into life, and the person seems to be manifesting things like crazy because what one wants and what is happening are one and the same.

In contrast, the ego is totally out of the flow of life, so to speak, and wants what it wants, and is in a way opposing life, or God, so to speak.  Therefore, it has trouble manifesting. If you want to manifest better, take a step back, look at what is happening, and be impartial.  You’ll realize that what you want is what is happening, and is what is manifesting.

Q: What is the value of prayer?

A: Prayer sets intention.  It sets up the m-field to help you recognize, choose, and manifest things that go along harmoniously with that intention.

By the way, if you ask for something in your prayers, what you’re really saying is that you don’t have something, and you’ll manifest more of a want for that thing rather than the getting.  For example, if you say “God, please give me money, I want more money,” you’ll experience the experience of wanting more money, but not necessarily getting it.

On the other hand, if you say “I intend to live my life in abundance,” what you’re really saying is that you want to share your abundance with the world, which then recognizes this condition, and reflects if back on you. Therefore, everyone is enlisted in helping you live your life in abundance, since you are asking and intending to already be a blessing to them.

As an added benefit, in this case, even if you don’t experience a great deal of financial abundance, you will experience the experience of abundance of love, which is, in and of itself, its own reward.

The most powerful prayers are prayers that you use to set up the intention of serving and loving God and others, rather than asking God and others to serve you.  When you ask to serve God and others, you align yourself with God, love, and witness conscious, not the ego.

When you’re asking God for things, you are aligning yourself with your egoic consciousness rather than your higher self.  Everything in egoic consciousness eventually leads to pain, in some way or another.

So ask to give, rather than to get, and you’ll be happy.  The trick is to really mean it, recognize, and let go of your wants of the ego, and live life persistently serving.  Then you’ll be happy.
