Did you know that there is actually a science behind manifesting what you want in your life?
Alchemy was one of the first sciences that began to tap into the nature of reality and using basic alchemical principles to realize the material from the immaterial.
If you think that might be a little far-fetched, have you ever wondered how an acorn becomes a giant oak tree? If you cut open an acorn you won't find anything that looks like a tree, and yet the information of "tree-ness" is already encoded, waiting for the right environment to be expressed. Sound familiar?
Material from the immaterial.
Kabbalah is a mystic sect of Judaism that also breaks down this science.
Essentially there are four elements (five if you include the ether, which is the dance floor that allows the whole dance of life to be possible):
Each of these elements (besides ether) has a physical and non-physical correlate. I will relate them as they relate to the psyche and the process of manifestation.
Air has to do with the recognition that whatever you can conceive of exists as a potential. A plane was born out of the recognition and belief that traveling through air is possible.
Fire has to do with taking all the "up in the air" ideas and collapsing them into a clear intention and vision. The conceptualization of a vessel that can effectively travel through the air.
Water has to do with the emotional charge that turns an idea into a burning desire. This is typically where planning and preparation takes place.
Earth is the physical labor of executing on the plans and preparations of the burning desire. The plane is built and tested.
That's about as simple as I can put it. This is the step down process that every-thing has gone through to be realized in our material realm.
In my own personal experience, I like to use the analogy of a bow and arrow. The idea of the possibility (air) and the clear intention to make it real (fire) is the target. You use your focus and your atonement (water) to steadily aim at your target. You use your will (earth) to take action and pull the bow back. And then at a certain point you must decide to let go and surrender to the outcome as you continue to engage in the work required to realize your intention. There are many winds and obstacles and unforeseen circumstances that can make even the best intentions and focused work fall short -- some things just weren't meant to be for you at this particular stage in your evolution.
There's a great (and short) book by Ivan Antic called The Process of Realization that walks through this process beautifully.
If you would like to receive a more thorough explanation, I highly recommend you go and watch this recent video I made that breaks this all down even further and adds one more aspect that is worth consideration.
And if you'd like some guidance in practically implementing this process to create the life of your dreams, schedule a call with me and let's get to work.
I hope this helps.
