The Manifestation Guide - A Reality Check for Musicians B(L)og 015

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

Well here we go! I’ve never heard the word “manifest” so much within the last decade. Well that’s not true. I once worked at a fashion company that used Manifests for shipping orders. I heard the word “MANIFEST” about a million times a day back then!

Anyway back on topic. You’ve been manifesting all of your life. Trust me you’re a pro at it. What are the tips and tricks or keys to manifesting intentionally today; especially when so many seem to fail at it? That’s what we’re going to cover today. And we’re going look at it from a musicians’ standpoint.

What Does The World Say?

Common sayings are everywhere and they point towards the keys to manifesting anything. Take a look at the following quotes:

“You don't get what you wish for, you get what you work for.” - Anonymous

“Nothing worth having was ever achieved without effort.” - Theodore Roosevelt

“Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort in your life makes all the difference.” - Anonymous

“Don’t put in half of the effort unless you’re okay with half of the results.” - Anonymous

“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.” - Winston S. Churchill

Well What Does Religion Say?

The Bible - James 2:14-17

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

The Qur'an - 16:97

Whosoever does righteous deeds, male or female, who have faith, to such God will grant a higher existence in the hereafter that is good and pure. They will be rewarded according to the best of their actions.

Hinduism (the oldest recognized world religion)

The principles behind Dharma (acting in accordance with cosmic law) and Karma (action, work, or deed) covey a similar outlook on a greater scale which can span between past lives and the present.

Well TDS What Do You Say?

Who Me?

“Think about what you want to do……not too long…...……And do it! Make your actions fall inline with your thoughts”.

Complete and persistent thought in conjunction with complete and persistent action!

Manifestation requires the mental process and the other half of the fruit is the physical action component. That’s how you manifest.

All life guidance practices/religions address this and arrive at the same answer. Take the religious framework out of it and the process is the same. Why? Because it’s common sense. The answer is clear.

Remember, you’ve done this before and certainly been doing it all your life. How many times have you manifested your Christmas present as a child? You imagined yourself playing with it. You spoke to your parents (Santa Claus) as if you already knew they were going to put it under the tree for you. It was as real as homework to you and more often than not you got it on the 25th day of the 52nd week of the year. The missing key as we grow up is action based on what we’ve spent our time thinking about.

An open connector has all the capabilities excluding the power to act. A connection has to be made between your thoughts/desires and your actions, which are a physical confirmation that you really want what you say your want.

Hold On. What Does Manifest Really Mean?

To Manifest can be restated as:

1. readily perceived by the senses and especially by the sense of sight.

2. easily understood or recognized by the mind: obvious.

3. to make evident or certain by showing or displaying.
