What and how we manifest the intentions we set has many layers. It may seem as simple as setting an intention, focusing on that intention, then applying our efforts toward making it become real for ourselves. However, we human beings are much too complex for it to be that simple.

What may prevent us from manifesting a specific intention is having a greater desire that overrides the one unrealized. Invariably in the human experience there is a hierarchy in the degree to which we set our desires. While we may believe we want a specific intended outcome for ourselves, we are not regarding another desire that we want even more that takes precedence over the one that did not manifest.

This arm wrestling of desires vying to claim trumps often comes from expectations we have place upon ourselves that originate externally. We may have accepted specific social concepts of the ideal member of society that may run counter to our true identity. Rather than seeking out the core of our true source of fulfillment we instead seek the approval of the various social constructs surrounding us that appear to measure an individual’s worth on income, appearance, social status, or career.

When we pursue intentions that are set based on the approval of others rather than of ourselves, we can find it difficult to attain these desired outcomes as they conflict with an intention that is in alignment with what we truly want for ourselves. To bring ourselves back into alignment with our core, we must strip away all the superfluous adopted desires by asking ourselves what we want at the highest level. We have to look at what is our greatest desire, then look past that to see if there is still something even greater we want that feeds that desire.

Once we have looked as far as we can to find that which we truly want that no other desire can surpass, we have found ourselves, and we have found the conduit to the greatest degree of successful manifestation. This lends to the truth of the saying: “Don’t ask what the world needs, ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs, is people who have come alive.”

  1. Excellent! I hadn’t made the connection between triage (prioritizing) and manifestation. Throw the unconscious or subconscious in the mix and things do get tricky! Triage is key in a lot of things…a real tool for progress, or if everything becomes one high priority, the mechanism for paralysis…like the opening of that TV show “Halt and Catch Fire”.

  2. It does get tricky indeed, especially when subconscious-fed paralysis comes from an inability to discern between what we want and what we think we’re supposed to want.

    I always appreciate your comments… always highly insightful!
