Manifestation is initiated when we set our intention, but it is actuated through our every decision, through each and every choice we make.
When we begin to learn about the energy behind manifestation, we can sometimes get caught up with merely setting an intention and employing visualization. While this is certainly essential, a prerequisite to creating an intended outcome, it cannot suffice in and of itself.
The true power of creation resides in the very moment of making a decision. Each moment of decision brings us to a crossroad where we are charging up our inherent power as creative beings. Once we make a choice we are nudging the entire universe in the given direction of our decision. We are bending reality to our desire, releasing the unwanted reality and moving ourselves into a state of existence that is in alignment with the envisioned desire we originally created.
Sometimes we forfeit the intense energy behind our decisions by claiming they are forced upon us by external factors. When we believe we are making a decision that is counter to what we want, we instantly create for ourselves a role of victim, then we step into it immediately. This merely serves as a façade to give us license to appear as if we should not be held accountable for our decision, seeming to allow us to blame the circumstance for forcing us to make a decision we would not have made otherwise.
The overarching truth is, that every crossroad is composed of two or more roads. Though decisions may seem at times to be made based on what we are trying to avoid, every decision is based on what it is we desire, what we actually do want. At every decision making opportunity, if we can in that moment, recognize that which we desire as opposed to that which we do not desire, the result will be a decision fueled with the most profound and effective manifesting energy behind us, as it will be aligned with our greatest positive intentions we originally set for ourselves.
