The Secret of Creating Exactly What You Want

One of my favorite parts of a journey is realizing I just got off the train. Let me explain…

Often I find myself wishing for the greener side of life (literally: more greenbacks, more green protein shakes, and more time in my favorite place: a lush and verdant forest).

Manifestation 101

Formulating a desire, which Law of Attraction lovers will recognize, is what jumpstarts the creative potential of the universe—the start of our journey. It’s the first step in creating what we want.

Then life happens. Stuff starts to breakdown. Sometimes it’s a crappy experience, sometimes it’s exhilarating. Destruction is the first step of creation—you have to make room for what you’re bringing in!

During this process, the strength and consistency of our desire, despite what life throws our way, is another way we communicate with the universe. The more we hold our desire steadfast in our mind’s eye, and in our heart’s intention, the more solid a foothold it gains in our manifest reality. At this point, we’re on the train, traversing a myriad landscapes on the way to our goal.

Just as we’re not in control while on the train—the tracks will take us wherever the universe has saw fit to lay them—our creative process can feel both completely intention and out of control, like going through a dark period where it seems like no matter what we do, the universe is ignoring our desire. The train keeps following those tracks that we laid down with our initial desire.

Life is happening, but that outcome we are focused on is just not appearing. We’re not in control, and what we do doesn’t matter. Now here’s the secret of creating exactly what you want. Most people don’t even see it when it happens right before their eyes, but that’s why it’s a secret.

Secret: Get off the train

After you’ve gone through that dark period where it feels like you had no control, what happens next is—you get off the train. You stop trying. Poof. Bam. Done. JUST LET GO.

Before we even know it, that journey we thought we were on is over. And we didn’t get what we want! Or so it seems…

At this point, take an honest look back at your original desire. The universe always delivers what’s true for you in your heart. Did that scary accident or unbelievable serendipity create something in your life that has yet to be recognized? Was it more real and true than what you thought you were creating? Was it exactly what you wanted, even if your mind doesn’t recognize it as so?

Chat with a friend about this. Get some objective feedback. Let us know what you discover.

Over the years, I’ve found I created exactly what I wanted, even if it took me awhile to recognize it after I got off the train.

About the Author:

Matthew Koren is a personal life coach and spiritual development guide at Spirit in Transition. As he was growing up, he always felt drawn to fantastical, magical things. He read fantasy and sci-fi voraciously, and often his head would be so deep in the clouds with the visions he saw before him, that he’d fail to hear what was going on around him. Determined to ground his visionary experiences into this reality, Dorjee began seeking tools and trainings to help ground these experiences into his everyday life. He explored such diverse modalities as meditation and mindfulness, shamanism and plant-based medicines, ancient mystery school initiations, and modern psychology principles to support his clients. He founded Spirit in Transition in 2015, a community of conscious creators actively evolving their potential to help bridge the gap between who they are now and who their soul wants them to be. He invites you to join us for any of our spiritual development classes and events.
