manifesting abundance

L et us explore this magical journey into the different stages of manifesting abundance that moves us from the ordinary world of effort into the extra-ordinary world of flow.

This sharing of this magical mystery tour will be unfolded

Level 1 Abundance—The Ordinary World

Level 2 Abundance—Beyond the Ordinary

Level 3 Abundance—The World of the Extraordinary

Within each of these three stages of manifesting I will share with you the challenges, the stage of life from which it is directed, the focus in relation to the personal will, the relationship to your energy system (Y-E-S) and the cultural pressures involved.

Manifesting Abundance – Level 1

Culturally Sanctioned

In our culture we social sanction Level 1 Abundance. It is all about success, achievement and getting what you want. It is the foundation of the toxic capitalist system under which the world is being destroyed.

Manifestation at this level comes from the foundational belief that everyone who lives in the ordinary world is separate from everyone else.

Because of this belief in separation resources are limited and if you are to be successful, you better get what you can while you can.

It plugs you into the Matrix and programmed to live the conditioned life of the separate sense of the personal self. This is who you think you are. It is who most everyone thinks they are.

To move beyond this idea of self (Red Pill) threatens the established order and your place within it.

We experience this first level of manifestation and abundance in this way:

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. – Genesis 3:19

Because of the belief in personal separation, this is how we live life on this planet.

You as the personal sense of the self think you have to do everything. At this 1st level of manifestation it is all about action and effort.  The focus of your life energy is on “doing.”

The more you “do” the more you tend to “get.” This is the accepted norm in relation to the idea of manifestation and abundance at this 1st level of manifestation.

However, at this level of manifestation the more you “do” the more you create a collective “do-do.” You become addicted to the experience of “never enough.” There is never any real experience of contentment.

This is where we all begin.

If continued, it is often how many of us get burned out and addicted to some form of much-needed relief. We might achieve much but at the cost of our health, our relationships to family and others and collectively to the Earth and other sentient beings on the planet.

At this level of manifestation our level of GDP (Gross Domestic Product) goes up and our level of GDH (Gross Domestic Happiness) goes down.

Will to Power

The focus of the personal will at this 1st level of manifestation is on the will to power. The more power the more you achieve and the bigger the rewards. This is how we formulate the present system with the 1% holding and mis-using much of the resources for the other 99%

From this 1st level of manifestation your energy system is driven from the demands of the personal will (ego) rather than in alignment with the true purpose of your existence. Your mantra at this level of manifestation is, “My will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

You achieve success because of effort and hard work. There is nothing wrong with this but those who manifest at higher levels recognize there is not enough balance between “doing” and “being.”

Driven from the will to power, there is a lot of focus on goal setting and time management. This is a very masculine dynamic. You are assured, “You must have goals,” (Zig Ziglar) and that “Time is money.”

Many people successful at this 1st level of manifestation can live their whole lives with no awareness of a more balanced, healthy and wholistic way of manifesting what would give them greater happiness.

The paradox is that you manifest this greater happiness to the degree to which you move from being in control (personal will to power) to allowing Creation to manifest through you (Universal Will to Love).

Manifesting in the 1st Stage of Life

manifesting abundance and the 1st Stage of Life

Manifesting abundance at level one is a Stage 1 life experience. Hopefully, it does not remain at this stage, but for most people this is how it is.

Life Stage 1 is the period of life from around the time you are twenty to around thirty-five to forty. This is the period during which you develop your personal sense of self (ego). It is who you identify yourself as being.

You may have a career, you may have a family, you may be successful by cultural standards. You may have a clear sense of who you are and have firm ego boundaries.

This is fine. It is best if at this stage you have clear ego boundaries and a sense of what it means to be successful by the terms of what we consider the norm in the ordinary world.

By the time you reach the age of 35-40 years you will have had some life experience. While you may well have had some success in creating a life you desire, you will have suffered some loss.

If you are lucky, this will draw you to ask deeper questions of life.

You will, if you are fortunate, be drawn into a crisis of meaning. You might ask, “Is this all there is?” There have been many who reach a large degree of success at this stage of life who feel empty inside.

This crisis of meaning can come earlier in life. It came to me in my middle twenties. For many people, it just doesn’t happen. As the mythologist Jean Houston declares in her wisdom school teachings, many people are content to live what she refers to as, “The same old same as.”

They might experience The Call to Adventure (1st Stage of Awakening) and refuse to follow the call. When offered to choose the Red or Blue Pill they choose to stay in the Matrix (the norm) and refuse to venture into the wonder of who they are.

The Lower Chakra Dynamic

manifesting abundance and the lower chakras

Photo by Natalie Grainger on Unsplash

We achieve manifestation at this 1st level of abundance from the energy of the lower chakras. These are the lower chakras related to personal development.

The lower chakras are:-

  • Root Chakra—Embodiment
  • Sacral Chakra—Relationship
  • Solar Plexus Chakra—Empowerment

If you are manifesting in the 1st stage of life, the reason this might be from a positive point of view is that the above three centres are in alignment.  You feel embodied; you feel connected, and you feel empowered.

This is not how it feels for most people in the 1st stage of life.

Many are driven from the dynamic of the 3rd chakra, which is the energy of the personal will. These are the driven people of the world. They attain success in pushing through whether that negatively impacts the health of their body or the health of their intimate relationships.

Even when these energy centres are in alignment, there may as yet be no awareness of the transition centre (heart) centre that is the gateway into the higher dimensions of manifestation and abundance.

It is necessary that these energy centres be in alignment so that the energy of the higher centres can be felt. This leads to experiences of flow and creativity from Source energy. Your life takes on a larger meaning.

The personal and the universal are dancing together. This is when you experience the real magical mystery tour that is you one wild and precious life.

If this is not your experience, then as the mystic poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe declares in his poem The Holy Longing:

And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth.

The Holy Longing
poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Tell a wise person, or else keep silent,
because the mass man will mock it right away.
I praise what is truly alive,
what longs to be burned to death.
In the calm water of the love-nights,
where you were begotten, where you have begotten,
a strange feeling comes over you,
when you see the silent candle burning.
Now you are no longer caught in the obsession with darkness,
and a desire for higher love-making sweeps you upward.
Distance does not make you falter.
Now, arriving in magic, flying,
and finally, insane for the light,
you are the butterfly and you are gone.
And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth.

Translated from the German by Robert Bly

1st Level Challenges

1st level manifestation challenges

Photo by Matthew Sleeper on Unsplash

The challenges at this 1st Stage of Life are many. The primary challenge is to create firm ego boundaries.

There are many spiritual teachers and teachings that insist that the disciple get rid of the ego. If you wish to see what getting rid of the ego looks like, then I suggest you spend time at an institution for the insane.

These suffering souls are the individuals who have no clear ego boundaries.

Anyone who wishes to journey into the wonderland of the True Self needs to build clear ego boundaries. I see far too many disembodied and etheric individuals who travel this road of spiritual awakening.

It focuses them on the spiritual without being grounded in matter.

To become a free flow of abundance, you need to be grounded in the body. The first thing you have to ensure is that you take command of the voice in your head. In the song World Party by The Waterboys as  this voice is referred to as “The Madman in the Cave of the Skull.”

The Madman in the Cave of the Skull is referred to by the modern mystic Eckhart Tolle as “The normal insanity.”

This is the norm of the Matrix—The Ordinary World.

This norm is the voice in your head that sucks all the life energy out of you. It is what drives much of your life. It is the servant who has taken over the Palace. Your sovereign sense of self has left the building to wander in rags in a foreign land.

If you are blessed, then you will find success only to recognise toward the end of the 1st Stage of Life that there is no real meaning in what has been have achieved.

Not that you do not felt a certain degree of satisfaction and happiness in accomplishing tasks such as bringing up children, advancing your career, developing a loving relationship with another.

Please note that none of this is wrong. It’s just not the complete picture.

You can, and most likely will, get caught up like so many other people do that it is the complete picture. At this 1st Stage of Life you identify yourself as a creature of one world when in reality you are a creature of two worlds.

These two worlds are not separate, but you remain ignorant of the world beyond the personal sense of self even if you believe in it.

These are the worlds of:-

  • Time and Eternity.
  • Finite and Infinite
  • Personal and Universal

If you ask deeper questions for your existence, then you become open to the 2nd Stage of Life.

Many people resist this experience. This is understandable. This is the period where you decide that you will take the Red Pill and see how far down the rabbit hole you might venture into the wonderland of your True Self.

This, more often than not, is a period of deep transition. It is not comfortable. It has been called The Midlife Crisis.

Manifesting Abundance Level II

This level of manifestation is where you move beyond how most people understand that manifestation works.

Lets explore each of the above aspects of level II manifestation.

Metaphysically Sanctioned

Level II is where you explore the power of the mind.

In the ordinary world of everyday living (The Matrix) your personal mind uses you and sucks the life out of you. The servant is running amuck in the Palace. The Madman in the Cave of the Skull drives your life. It is the driven life of never enough devoid of Soul Purpose.

At Level I manifestation you live your life from the borrowed thoughts of others.

You become not your true self, but a collection of ideas and concepts that you are told to live from by others who have been taught to live from the thoughts of others.

At level II manifestation you enter the realm of metaphysics.

This is what I will refer to as New Age Thinking or New Thought. This level of manifesting abundance is popularly known as The Law of Attraction or The Secret.

The best explanation to the question “What is metaphysics?” is given by Dr. Paul Leon Masters who is founder of the University of Metaphysics.

The is what the International Alliance for New Thought have on their website to the question “What is New Thought

The answer to this question can be as short as an elevator answer, meaning about as long as one might be in an elevator and asked the question, or a far more in depth answer that is the stuff books are made of. The elevator answer might be a simple statement that “New Thought is an ever evolving understanding that all of life happens through us, never to us. It uses the term or word consciousness to further explain the process, often quoting Emmet Fox’s statement, ‘Life is consciousness,’ that leads one to the ever unfolding idea that in order to affect a change in our life, the realm of mind called consciousness must first change.”

There is some variance in the story of where New Thought got its name, but the most agreed upon was reported in The Christian Commonwealth, June 17, 1914. An unnamed reporter wrote, “It is the outsider who has given this name to the teaching. For when hearing about the use to which this knowledge has been put, and the new interpretation which is given to old truths, conditions and experiences, the commonest remark of the listener has been, ‘Why, that is a new thought!’ And, afterwards, when wishing to refer to it, he has described it as ‘that new thought of yours’.”

You can read more about New Thought at.

https://newthoughtalliance.org/what-is-new-thought/

The reality is that it is not at all new and it isn’t the real secret. It is a useful step on the way to real abundance but take it that this is Class 101 in relation to manifesting abundance.

The Will to Magical Thinking

manifesting abundance level 2 will to magic

Photo by Artem Maltsev on Unsplash

I call entry into Level II Manifestation and Abundance the Will to Magic. It is a different way of thinking than the driven energy of the Will to Power.

Let me say, however, that The Will to Magic it is not “Magical Thinking.”

Magical thinking is a stage of consciousness we all go through. It is the stage of a toddler and young child. They believe in magic. I think this is because they have not as yet lost contact with Source energy.

They have not as yet developed an ego personality that is driven from the voice in their head. They are still in touch with their Essence which is magical.

This is fine for toddlers and young children. However, in many spiritual groups you will find this kind of magical thinking being promoted by people who promote spiritual awakening in some form.

For example, in many Facebook groups you will see the following post

I am focused on becoming a Millionaire. Type YES to affirm.

I find it astonishing the number of people who will type “YES.” What do they believe will be the consequence of such an action?

Magical Thinking:  Ken Wilber’s Cautions about the New Age Movement

It’s like jumping inside a living fairy tale–metaphysical fairs, ear candling, crystal healings, the pretty, Medieval inspired costumes and the many faces of the Tarot deck. There is a harmless, innocent regression in the service of the ego when enjoying some of the pastimes of the New Age Movement.

These are fantastically appealing methods of both entertainment and in some cases, personal healing. However, the philosopher Ken Wilber sees past the pretty packaging and identifies the dangers that lurk in magical thinking and the presumption that our thoughts can create reality.

Magical thinking in a psychoanalytic sense is of course the belief that one is the center of the Universe. It is desirable in children while they are being raised up and nurtured but profoundly dangerous in adults.

It is a derangement of normal narcissism that is transitory in most people when they are at their happiest and their saddest. It is the same narcissism that marks the “King Baby” notion of Bill Williams, originator of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is the essence of selfishness and can, when held to absolutely, cause psychotic states.

It is the keynote of Borderline Personality Disorder, the foundation of that disorder’s ability to be at times grandiose and at times utterly contrite for actions good and bad that reach well beyond that individual’s capacities.(1)

Wilber is concerned by a trend in magical thinking in New Age culture since it derails true meditation and true enlightenment by devolving into narcissistic thinking. The notion that the Universe starts with me and ends with me can be comforting, but the loss of perspective and narcissistic encapsulation blinds one to the gloriously complex matrix we are a part of.

Magical thinking induces a loss of humility because it fails to recognize hierarchy. Wilber issues strong cautions against this relativity, its lack of scientific rigor as well as its lack of moral compass.

I believe that the hyper-individualistic culture in America, which reached its zenith in the “me decade”, fostered regression to magical and narcissistic levels. I believe…that the breakdown of more socially cohesive structures turned individuals back on their own resources, and this also helped reactivate narcissistic tendencies.

And I believe, with clinical psychologists, that lurking right beneath the surface of narcissism is rage, particularly but not solely expressed in the belief: “I don’t want to hurt you, I love you; but disagree with me and you will get an illness that will kill you.

Agree with me, agree that you can create your own reality, and you will get better, you will live.” This has no basis in the world’s great mystical traditions; it has it basis in narcissistic and borderline pathology….”

This is the dark side of what Wilber calls “boomeritis”—that which ails those of us who are part of the proverbial Baby Boomer Generation.

This egocentrism, narcissistic encapsulation– whatever words one uses to describe the focus on the importance of self–this is the common cold of us Boomers. Because of its childishness, it can certainly be comical in adults and one is reminded of the character Stuart Smalley, a 12-Step devotee (and professional victim) with a fictional talk show, featured on the American television program, Saturday Night Live.

Wilber’s book is replete with the many character manifestations of this sensibility and he presents one such, a professor giving a lecture attended by the book’s protagonist. This professor is issuing a clarion call that now is the time for the greatest level of understanding ever, the greatest synthesis, and that true enlightenment is about to happen due to the spiritual readiness of the current generation.

And he bottom-lines this amazing moment of opportunity—

…many eggs were broken to make this extraordinary world omelet.

Some have criticized Wilber’s book, a radical departure from his previous work, as an uneasy pastiche of rollicking satire interspersed with his more characteristic hierarchical theorizing.

Irrespective of the concern for its fictional merit, it could certainly be argued that Wilber chose to use humor and fictionalized case examples to drive his point home in this case—as his work has, by his own admission, become highly abstract, complex and is easily misunderstood.

In one way, Wilber proposes that an understanding and appreciation of hierarchy is the antidote to boomeritis. Rather than everything being equal in value and reducible along a flat continuum, there is an inherent hierarchy along which all building blocks of matter and consciousness are arrayed.

Also, Wilber maintains that all the wisdom traditions of humankind have in common a “perennial philosophy” which recognizes this hierarchy.

Central to the perennial philosophy is the notion of the Great Chain of Being. …reality is composed of several different but continuous dimensions. Manifest reality, that is, consists of different grades or levels, reaching from the lowest and most dense and least conscious to the highest and most subtle and most conscious. At one end of this continuum of being or spectrum of consciousness is what we in the West would call “matter” or the insentient and the nonconscious, and at the other end is “spirit” or “godhead” or the “superconscious” (which is also said to be the all-pervading ground of the entire sequence, as we will see).

The central claim of the perennial philosophy is that men and women can grow and develop (or evolve) all the way up the hierarchy to Spirit itself, therein to realize a “supreme identity” with Godhead–the ens perfectissimum toward which all growth and evolution yearns.

Thus, Wilber’s argument against the New Age could be stated this way: it seeks tolerance through an abdication from dialectic. Everything is “okay” because everything is relative. Let’s face it–dialectic is tiring, argument is confrontational and appraisal is inherently an act of judging. Rather than run these risks, it is easier to think magically—but far more dangerous.

The Will to Magic is where you trust in a power beyond the sense of the personal self. This is what I call authentic faith.

Authentic faith is step one of learning the process of manifestation and abundance. It is using your personal will in true alignment with your soul purpose.

All true manifestation that leads to fulfilment and genuine happiness is the consequence of soul alignment. It is a happening through you rather than something you “do.”

This is the gateway into real magic and not the childish activity of “magical thinking.” It’s OK for toddlers but if your focus is on spiritual awakening, then you need to put away childish things.

2nd Stage of Life

manifesting abundance level 2 stage of life

Photo by Fred Kearney on Unsplash

The second stage of life I refer to as The Period of Transition. You come to a point where you are interested in the larger existential questions of life such as.

  • Who Am I?
  • Why Am I Here?
  • Is This All there is?

You open to the deeper experience of being human being. It isn’t easy because it takes you into a period of uncertainty and doubt about who and why you are and what you have been doing with your life.

We term this the Mid-Life Crisis. It can happen in the 1st Stage of Life where we refer to it as the quarter life crisis. This happened for me around the age of twenty-five. It happened again around the age of fifty years.

You begin the quest for meaning. It is a stage of getting rid of a lot of baggage. This is letting go and letting God. If the word God does not suit, then use your own word.

You start the process of moving from the will to Power to the Will to Love. Metaphorically speaking you leave Egypt (identification with the personal mind) to travel in the desert (the unknown) and find the Promised Land (meaning and purpose for your life).

You let go all those myriad voices that you have taken as your own. You enter the silence and the process of intuitive KNOWING whereby you are KNOWN through. This is the 1st real step on the ladder of learning to be available to the infinite creative power of manifestation.

Chakra Dynamic – 4th Chakra – Heart Chakra

manifesting abundance level 2 heart chakra

Photo by Rustam Mussabekov on Unsplash

The 2nd level of manifestation the energy centre from which you manifest is the heart centre. This is the energy centre that is the point of unity between the lower chakras and the higher chakras.

The Christian mystic Meister Eckhart says it this way:-

When the higher flows into the lower, the lower is transformed by the higher—Meister Eckhart—(1260-1328)

He is saying that when you allow the energy of the transpersonal (the soul) to flow through the heart, then the personal sense of yourself gets transformed.

This requires cleansing of the heart centre. It requires that you be willing to allow the higher to flow into the lower. This requires your change of heart. You move from the mantra “My will be done on Earth” to “They will be done on Earth.”

This requires that you have some sense of the lack of meaning that a focus on pure self-interest gives you. This focus on self-interest is a 1st Stage of Life interest. It develops the sense of the personal self. However, if that is all you ever know then you are as Goethe says, “only a guest on this dark earth.”

Unless you will die to the separate sense of the personal self, then you will remain at the 1st level of manifestation. It will remain a kind of Cosmic Ordering system focused on the Cosmos meeting your never-ending desires. The mantra “I want” will drive your focus.

Until your mantra  becomes “How can I serve?” manifestation will always be driven by the power of the personal will. There won’t be much love in it. At the end of the journey you might well be wealthy, but have no one to share it with.

At the end of the journey you might well be wealthy, but you have compromised your health. It burns you out and you have no energy with which to enjoy your self-created success.

I have seen this so often that it is really very much the norm. People reach retirement and remain identified with the personality and send their time finding ways to put their time in. They have no relationship with the power, the magic and the glory of the Timeless (3rd level manifestation).

Manifesting Abundance Level III

Level 3 Abundance – The World of the Extraordinary

Section B

Divinely Sanctioned

manifesting abundance level 3 divinely sanctioned

Photo by YUXUAN WANG on Unsplash

I call this way of living in the world Practical Mysticism. I am inviting you throughout the invitation from this website to become someone who is a practical mystic.

In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic (someone who has experienced God)  or nothing at all—Karl Rahner

You are now learning the real Secret. This is how to access the Secret of Secrets inside you from the Land Not Mine. (Anna Akhmatova) To date you have approached manifestation from the point of view of lack.

A Land Not Mine
by Anna Akhmatova
(Translated by Jane Kenyon)

A land not mine, still
forever memorable,
the waters of its ocean
chill and fresh.

Sand on the bottom whiter than chalk,
and the air drunk, like wine,
late sun lays bare
the rosy limbs of the pinetrees.

Sunset in the ethereal waves:
I cannot tell if the day
is ending, or the world, or if
the secret of secrets is inside me again.

A mystic is anyone who has had a direct revelation of the Divine KNOWS, one thing for certain. This is that their joy is in abiding in the fullness of the Infinite which they allow to pour through them.

The mystic KNOWS how the Cosmos works. This is not intellectual knowing. It is direct revelatory KNOWING. This kind of KNOWING is invited in the instruction.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.-Matthew 6:33

The Kingdom of Heaven is not a place.

It is a state of Being. It is your natural state of being before the walls of the prison house of the separate sense of self closed around you.

Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood
BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
Shades of the prison-house begin to close
Upon the growing Boy,
But he beholds the light, and whence it flows,
He sees it in his joy;
The Youth, who daily farther from the east
Must travel, still is Nature’s Priest,
And by the vision splendid
Is on his way attended;
At length the Man perceives it die away,
And fade into the light of common day.

This enclosure is necessary for how life on this planet manifests. However, to remain in the prison of your personal sense of self is the primary cause of most unnecessary suffering on this planet.

The choice is yours. You either serve the purpose of your soul manifested from Divine purpose or you serve your ego which manifests all things driven from the experience of ‘never enough.’

There can never be enough for you or anyone unless you are connected to that which is Infinite.

Will to Love

manifesting abundance level 3 will to love

Photo by Roman Kraft on Unsplash

The 3rd Level of Manifesting Abundance is all about your availability to the force that drives all Creation and creates you to express through. This is the Force of Love.

Do not confuse this force with love as promoted in the latest romantic comedy. Do not confuse it with the energetic dynamic between two people. This is the 1st stage of life stuff. There is nothing wrong with romantic love, but it involves a lot of personal stuff and all the drama that comes with it.

Level III manifestation moves from a feeling connection to the force of Creation. Do not view this force as “Loving.” This force is Love. There is no duality here.  It is not separate from you, although for most of us for most of the time we feel separate from this Force.

The grace experience of spiritual awakening allows you to KNOW for certain you are a part of this Force but never apart from it. Mystics (KNOWERS of Love) have likened it to being like a sunbeam radiating from The Long Time Sun (Eternal Life).

This dynamic of Love (Capital L) only wants to do one thing.

It wants to pour itself into myriad forms of creation. You are its creation. It wishes to pour through you would that you allow it.  There is no pushing to achieve results, which is always moving from the dynamic of the personal. You are the flow of Creation expressing through you.

You feel this flow. It is all happening through you. You and life are the dance of Love. Its effortless. The Taoists call this Wei Wea.  It is living as action through non-action. Don’t try to figure this out with your logical mind. It can’t be done. It would be like trying to bite your own teeth.

This Will Love aligns you with the purpose of the Universe. You recognise your purpose as serving Love’s Purpose. When your will and the Will of the Divine are in alignment, the possibilities are infinite.

3rd Stage of Life

manifesting abundance level 3 3rd stage of life

Photo by Huyen Nguyen on Unsplash

In the 3rd Stage of Life you move from reliance on knowledge to the wisdom of KNOWING. In fact, wisdom is when you begin to KNOW that you know nothing.

This is an affront to the ego that is your separate sense of the personal self. Wisdom is the intelligence of emptiness that is forever full and which fulfils you.

The 3rd Stage of life is where you become an expression of the Beatitudes—attitudes of Being. 1st Stage life is where you are living more from the ten commandments. It’s about duality and control. Mostly it’s about your being in control.

The movement from the 1st Stage of Life to the 3rd Stage of Life is a huge leap in consciousness. However, the consequences in relation to the power of manifestation are also huge. Think of the ability to feed thousands of people from two loaves and fishes.

The key difference is the movement from the focus on “wanting” to the focus on “giving.” The focus on giving is the focus of the mystic. The mystic has been graced the revelation of Source or God. Once that has happened there is only one focus.

This focus is shared in the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.

Prayer of St Francis of Assisi

Peace Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.

This prayer shows you how different manifestation is to a mystic.  They are not engaged with vision boards, affirmations and creative visualisation. They have enough to deal with because Creation is pouring through them for the highest good of all.

In the 2nd Stage of Life, if you are so graced you will have experienced what we call, “Necessary suffering.” This is where you suffer the humiliations of falling apart.  This is not a punishment. It is the imitations of your soul calling you to begin Falling Upward.

The 3rd Stage of Life is a great emptying out so you become available of the great Outpouring of the Divine through you. This is the true experience of Attraction. Once again, the Secret of Secrets is inside you.

The Higher Chakras

manifesting abundance level 3 higher chakras

I See Your True Colors Shining Through

Photo by Mohamed Nohassi on Unsplash

When you ground the body (1st chakra) and open the mind and heart you allow the higher to flow into the lower (Meister Eckhart – Christian Mystic)

The higher chakras relate to the transpersonal energy centres of the body.

  • 5th Chakra–Throat Chakra—Communion
  • 6th Chakra–Brow Chakra—Seeing
  • 7th Chakra–Crown Chakra—Union/Yoga

You commune with Divine Presence. You see with non-dual vision. This is how mystics see.

Opening the Crown Chakra is the direct experience of Union or Yoga. This is the real purpose of all forms of yoga. It is the experience described by the Master Jesus when he declares.

I and the Father are One—John 10:30

From this dynamic of union, seeing and communion there is no trying to manipulate the Universe to give you what your personal sense of separation tells you you need.

You are open. You are empty of your personal agenda. That you would dictate to the Divine is the second best choice. The Universe may do through you what it always intended to do and be through you.

Manifestation is flowing. There is no one trying to make it happen. Your joy is in being the happening. You are an instrument of Divine expression.

Level 3 Challenges

manifesting abundance level 3 challenges

The Challenge of Falling Upward

Photo by Matt Sclarandis on Unsplash

The real challenge of the 3rd level of manifesting abundance is the need for continual trust and patience. Not that you want things. It is that you want to serve Love’ Purpose as intended through you.

There is that stage of the spiritual journey referred to as “God’s Waiting Room.”

This is the recognition that there is nothing you can do to feel in union with that which fulfils your life purpose. This is you waiting on Grace. If it happens and when it happens is not for you to decide.

This waiting without being able to do anything to control the situation is a continuing humiliation to the personal sense of self. This is the difficult practice of waiting without waiting.

You will not be told this in any Law of Attraction seminars or workshops. This waiting without pushing for results is the difficult and challenging process of becoming available to Creation, so it co-creates through you.

The way the Law of Attraction and the Gospel of Prosperity is taught is that you as personal co-creator tell God or Source what you want. You are in control with your affirmations, vision boards and your mantra, “My will be done.”

This is like the dewdrop directing the Ocean.

This is OK at Level I manifestation. It’s even necessary as part of the Cosmic drama, but don’t get stuck there.

Level III manifestation is only for the few. This is because most everyone gets addicted to their personal sense of self in the 1st Stage of Life. They are not prepared to die to the personal in order that the Transpersonal dynamic of Love can freely manifest through them.

It is only at Level III that the real Law of Attraction and the Secret of Secrets operates. This is the real magic, but it is only available to those willing to become practical mystics.
