Several weeks ago, as I was creeping the newsfeed on Facebook, I came upon one of those posts that is supposed to challenge our math skills and determine whether of not we are geniuses! Being very good at math I say to myself... let's do this! So I proceed to read this lengthy equation. So many numbers... some in parentheses, then there were plus signs... minus signs.... signs for division... oh my!! But somewhere deep in the equation was times sign... and after that times sign was the number 0.
Now in my early childhood I recall learning that anything times 0 is 0!
So I didn't bother doing all the addition and subtraction ... the multiplication and division that the equation called for, I simply answered 0. Now, other people were responding with different answers...some, of which, I can't even fathom how they came up with, others I could rationalize their answers. But I felt confident in mine! ZERO! I was sure....
Sure enough, it turns out the answer was 0, because, as I stated before... anything multiplied by 0 is 0!
As I relished in the satisfaction of being somewhat of a genius - hey... that was their claim... not mine! :) - I began to wonder... could this apply anywhere else in life?
This is what I came up with.
I have a mentor. She is amazing! One of her favorite sayings is "1% doubt is 0%faith." In other words, if there is any doubt... there can be no faith. A friend of mine likens faith and doubt to light and dark... and of course we all know that there can be no dark where there is light and vice versa! So my mentor's statement and belief is supported by that thought!
Now the title of this article is Become a Magnificent Manifester.... So, how does this apply to being a manifester you are probably asking......
Here it goes....
I've learned from many different mentors that like attracts like. That statement is true with vibrational energy... we attract back that which matches our vibrational energy. In addition to that law.... I have been taught by another one of my favorite mentors that our thoughts, feelings and actions must all be in alignment to be a magnificent manifester!
I'm here to say that there is one more component! Belief.
If you don't truly believe that you have the power... you know, the ability... to manifest the life of your dreams then all else is immaterial. It's like climbing up a snowy hill.... you're almost to the top and you hit a small patch of ice and what happens? You slide all the way back down to the bottom of the hill... having to start your ascent all over again!
The same with belief.... You can be vibrating high.... thinking, feeling and acting all towards your goal, and that little voice in your head pops up and says... What makes you think you can do this? Why will this time be any different than before? Who do you think you are?
All those statements are statements of doubt! And.... 1% doubt is 0% faith... so what happens? You slip back down to the bottom of the proverbial manifestation hill and you have to start all over again!
Here's my conclusion.....
Faith is another word for belief... and when your heart and mind are filled with faith, there is no room left for doubt!
When that little voice starts chatting away in your head... silence him with faith! Faith can move mountains.... it can certainly shut that voice in your head up! :)
With some practice, you can become masterful at shutting that voice up... with faith!
Remember, when light is present, there can be no darkness!
So go ahead... vibrate... think, feel and act..... and believe my friends.... believe that you can... with all your heart, and all your mind! Believe!
Belief is truly the key to becoming a magnificent manifester!
