Have you ever stopped to ask yourself WHY you want the things you want? In other words, what is the bottom-line essence of your desire?
Why do you want financial abundance, or to be physically fit, or to finally meet your soulmate?
Just for a moment, go to the root of each of these desirable circumstances, and ask yourself, Really, why do I want this?
What you’ll discover is that behind every, single desire – whether it’s big or small, superficial or deep – is the desire to experience a certain feeling.
At the essence of every desire is a yearning to feel a certain way.
At the essence of a desire for financial prosperity might be a desire for freedom, security, worthiness, or self-love. Maybe you believe an abundance of money will leave you feeling proud, seen, important, or loved.
But here’s the thing: freedom, security, importance, pride, and self-love are NOT tangible things! We can’t place them in a shopping cart and ask the cashier to ring you up. These – like all things – are energies that we have the potential to align with.
Most of us have been conditioned to believe that lots of money is the ticket to experiencing these intangible feelings. And some of us spend our entire lifetimes chasing whatever it is we believe will yield us that kind of inner fulfillment.
We’re using a formula that goes something like this:
When I achieve X, then I will feel Y.”
And of course, each one of us solves for X according to our own value systems.
Some of us believe we’ll be happy when we find the right man, or when we have a child, or when we get that big promotion. Maybe we think we’ll finally feel lovable or worthy when we reach our ideal body weight or move into the house of our dreams.
But at the essence of every desire is an energy stream, a vibration, a feeling state that we are truly seeking. Once we understand this, we make a quantum leap in our power to manifest.
Learning to connect with and vibrate in energetic resonance with the essence of what you want to manifest, while it exists in its unmanifested form, is the key to attracting it into your life.
Aligning with this essence is like plugging into the universal stream of energy that exists everywhere, all the time, and is accessible to every one of us.
Here are 3 energy mastery steps for aligning with the essence of anything you desire:
Step #1: Identify something that you’ve wanted to create for quite some time.
This could be a wish or a dream, like taking an exotic trip. Maybe it’s an ideal condition, like starting your own business or reaching your optimal weight. You might have a specific goal in mind, such as writing a book, having a child, or completing a creative project. Whatever it is, envision clearly and exactly what it is you would like to create or accomplish.
Step #2: Once you’ve identified what you want, begin to ask yourself, “Why?”
What do you think the fulfillment of this desire will enable you to do? In what ways do you think it will change the kind of person you consider yourself to be? Most importantly, how do you believe you will feel having created this for yourself? Really take some time with this last question. How would you feel if you had already fulfilled this desire?
Step #3: Imagine this desire as if it were already fulfilled, and connect to the bottom-line feeling or energy.
Step into the energy of your desire as if you are putting on the perfectly-fitting clothing of the version of you who has already manifested it. Feel yourself literally wearing the vibration of joy, abundance, freedom, love, or whatever essential vibration you’re reaching for.
Feel this essence flowing through your emotions. Notice it pulsating in your belly, your power center. Allow this vibration to rearrange your body, your posture, and your presence. Imagine it infusing your mindset and your thoughts, effortlessly directing you toward new choices and actions. Affirm to yourself that since everything is energy and energy is the essence of your desire, you already have – you already are – that which you are seeking.
Choosing to stay in alignment with and in love with the essence of your desire is the secret to so many things in life. First, it’s the secret to attracting all that you desire. But it’s also the secret to overcoming any circumstance.
In every moment, we have the profound choice to focus on what has already manifested, or to focus on what is in the process of becoming. When we align with the essence of anything we desire, we are truly using our power as deliberate creators. What we give our attention to, we draw to ourselves on the current of our vibration.
