When we think about the process of manifestation, we think about that which we desire. We think about a goal we set for ourselves or the life we wish to create. We may see the process of manifestation as discretionary, as only in play when we are setting a deliberate conscious intention, as only being affective when we are applying acute focus to our vision.
We would do well to remember that manifestation is a perpetual process, bringing with it a myriad of outcomes. We are always manifesting. In every moment of our lives, without exception, we are presented with a choice. It is in this series of choices, without any gaps between, where manifestation truly takes place.
Creating our outcomes reaches far beyond creative visualization, focused intent, or vision boards. It occurs from the wellspring of our own identity, of who we believe ourselves to be. Every choice we are presented with is made based on our perception of self. As a result, our reality is not created based on what we want it to be, rather on who we already believe we are.
While manifestation is fueled by our desires, our desires are born from our needs. We may experience an outcome in our lives that seems contrary to our desires, but the outcome is actually serving our needs. These needs extend beyond simply surviving, they are what we require for a given set of experiences and growth, to create who we believe ourselves to be.
If we have a tendency to manifest outcomes that are contrary to what it is we want, we need to examine who we believe we are at the core. A string of undesired outcomes often indicates that we are in denial of having the power and the innate ability to manifest the life we truly desire, that is in alignment with the deepest part of our soul. This is our truest birthright, our inherent divine nature.
