MANIFESTATION VS. GOING WITH THE FLOW / DIVINE INTERVENTION

Lately I have been pondering manifestation. To be more precise, I have been pondering the wisdom of manifesting what I want. I know a specifically worded prayer that is very reliable at manifesting whatever is requested. I know because I spent a few years constantly manifesting things and situations. I said this prayer for the tiniest things, and I did it daily. I also said the prayer for big things that take longer to manifest. Not everything has come to fruition though some have. Innumerable easy, short-term things most definitely have. Why, then, would I question the wisdom of doing that technique? Why? Because I recently went through a period of time where my life was in total chaos. Great hardships, pain and tribulation occurred. It took me far too long to figure out what the problem was, but I am fairly certain that I have it now. It was that prayer, and the insidious, gradual take-over of my usual highly devoted-to-Spirit way of living that created the chaos and pain and horrible events. It disrupted the natural spiritual order of my life which involved wishing for what I wanted next and letting it go for the Soul to handle. Or not. Sometimes the best thing that can happen to us is to not get what we want.

Who is the I that is deciding what to manifest with the prayer or other manifestation techniques but the ego? Is the ego supposed to be in charge of our lives? One of the most stressed things I learned when first studying metaphysics back in the mid-1980s was that the goal of a spiritual lifetime, or of the spiritual path, was to give control of our lives to the Soul whose intermediary is the Higher Self. No one said that would be easy, either. The ego goes into FEAR when it feels threatened. It wants to run everything, fearing annihilation if it does not have ultimate control.

But we need the ego. We need it to perform the mundane: drive the car, wash the dishes, pay the bills, take the dog to the groomer and so on. But the Soul is supposed to be in charge of the important things. Before we make decisions of any importance at all, the Higher Self is rightfully consulted. This is our proper guidance at all times, not what the ego or personality wants, but what the Soul wants. As the poet Rumi has said, “What matters is how quickly you do as your soul directs.”

I have observed that there are some “movements” out there right now attracting large numbers of followers that use strange word sequences to activate the ego’s wish – which is not that different than a specific prayer, actually. These movements promise happiness, fun and lots of money – whatever the ego thinks if it needs to be happy. But our controlling certain things currently in our lives can disrupt lessons that have been created for our growth and learning by our own Soul, lessons we planned to have before we incarnated. These movements are not highly spiritual paths, in my opinion, and they are not for the person who has been walking the Path for a significant amount of time. Watching specific goodies manifest is for newbies. The positive side of the movements is that they allow those new to the path to be drawn into a way of seeing the world that is beyond what most people believe is possible. These movements are not ends in themselves, but hopefully a nice springboard into a deeper way. The promise of more money if the student just follows the leader’s tenets is a huge draw in an era when most people are just scraping by. But money is not the ultimate goal of a spiritual life. Connecting with the Soul is. Following one’s own unique spiritual path which meanders through a forest that blocks the view of what is coming next is the ultimate goal. And that way of living manifests what we need when we need it – sometimes at the last possible moment.

After much consideration I have returned to the old ways of doing things which I learned in metaphysical school half my life ago. And I am watching peace return to my life as well as things coming to me that I had no idea could ever happen, things it would never have occurred to me to “manifest.” You see, my Soul knows what I need and what will make me happy. My ego just thinks it does.

My new belief and advice is: “Stop trying to control your life path. You are blocking Divine Intervention.”
