Manifestation is all about making things happen, making our life into one we envision. As we come to understand how to create the life we want, we learn that it is important for us to take action. We create the life we desire when we do more than wish and hope, sitting still and waiting for all we want to come to us, to fall into our lap. Manifestation happens constantly for us, but specifically attracting a positive outcome takes effort on our part.
What we need to understand, however, is that effort does not equal brute force. When we try to force an outcome, we are working too hard to determine the results. We often work harder than we need to when we do not have the faith that the efforts we take are enough to affect the outcome. We may try to force our way through an obstacle and cause more strain to ourselves that we need to when another solution may be readily available.
Using our own strengths to overcome our adversities is the most affective approach to influencing a positive outcome. When we work from our strength we work from a most advantageous position with the least effort. We place ourselves in a position of faith in our own abilities to get through a challenge. This show of faith signals the universe to work on our behalf to create for us what we want. When we try to force an outcome we are telling the universe that we are uncertain of our ability to bring the desired outcome into our reality and the universe hesitates accordingly. The force we exert actually contributes to creating the resistance that is causing us to force the outcome. The result is a vicious circle with no forward progress.
Strength is the opposite of force. Strength is exhibited through ease and confidence. Strength is built completely on faith. We can crumble a mountain with the gentlest touch if we believe we can. The requirement is the belief, the faith, that our efforts will bring the outcome we want. So we put forth our efforts then we release our trust to the universe that we will receive what is in our best interest.
