Releasing a Potential
How to release a potential that already exists is part of the manifesting process. In fact, once you understand the real meaning of manifesting it become much easier. The dictionary's description of manifesting is: Not hidden, clearly defined, easy to see and understand. So, clarity is the key to manifesting, a clear concise vision is what works.
As Wayne Dyer said, "You can believe it when you can see it." I want you to know that clearly defining your goal is a major key to manifesting. Let's pretend there is a big field of infinite possibilities as Chopra says. Anything is possible. And we need to realize what you think about and what you say are paramount to what you receive.
You know other filmmakers have found money for their films. So your job is to see this potential working for you in your life. For example, an artist has something concrete to look at, either a model or a picture. He knows it exists and he wants to replicate it. He sees his potential and he releases it on canvas. A writer has an idea and she manifests it as a book or screenplay. At that moment, she gives that idea physical form.
First Law in Manifesting
Both the painter and the writer are manifesting something from their mind into this physical reality. This is the first law in manifesting. It is changing a form of something. You are not creating something out of nothing, what you want to create already exists. A piece of coal by itself is cold and black. Yet, it can burn; it contains the potential of heat. When coal is ignited heat is released. The potential was always there just like it is there inside you waiting for you to release it. Once you clearly see what you want to manifest you start the process of releasing it.
So, take something that you fully believe you can do and put that on your goal list. Something that you feel you can create. Manifesting uses natural laws because it is an active state. You need to see what you want, visualize it, see it, and feel it. What would you feel like if you had achieved this goal? Move into that feeling now. Experience it. Is it pride? Is it success? Is it pure joy? Save that feeling and write it down... Emotions heighten manifesting and the more emotions the faster the rewards. Shakespeare said, "My words go up; my thought remain below, words without thoughts never to heaven go!" Shakespeare knew the laws of manifestation require you to see your vision and that sending thought with emotion manifests.
