The very first step in manifestation is to set our intention on what we want to attract into our lives, to realize what it is we truly desire. It is the next step that provides energy to our intended manifestation.
What is that next step? It is whatever we want it to be. It is merely a matter of taking the step, of taking some form, any form of action. What form of action do we need to take? It doesn’t matter.
When we initially set our intention we can sometimes fall into the trap of checking and double-checking whether or not we really want what we thought we originally wanted. We may second-guess our goals, we may feel we need to assess what hazards, dangers, and pitfalls we may encounter in an attempt to unveil the unknown before embarking on our journey.
The truth is, we cannot anticipate every obstacle before us. Even if we could, we may not know how to manage them without the benefit of the experience we gain once we’re in motion. We need to simply set ourselves in motion, despite what may or may not lie ahead.
The first step we take is akin to a starting pistol which signals the Universe and ourselves that we are ready to receive that which we desire. It sends the message that attaining our desired outcome means enough to us to be willing to face whatever comes our way; good, bad, or otherwise. It is the leap of faith that shows we are worthy of what we desire and that we believe within the deepest part of our soul that it will be achieved, that our heart is pure and in alignment with what we want and who we are.
