Learning how to learn manifesting... What does that even mean? Sounds confusing to me. But it's a vitally important topic when it comes to consciously manifesting our desires. It's no secret that I have an obsession with figuring things out, namely having to do with Spiritual topics, and more specifically, the power that we have inherently within us. This is the power of manifestation.
Think about any time someone asks you a question about who you are. In my case, I would say, "I am Joseph Alai." I am the second born, and I am a person with brown hair. I am working for myself, making YouTube videos to teach manifesting. But why am I saying this? You might already know...
This will strikes a chord in some, and a nerve in still others because of our former training, but the truth is: our imagination is who The Bible calls, "Jesus Christ." Christ means savior. Jesus, the Hebrew YHWSA, more accurately means "God in the form of man". It is actually a formula, 'YHWSA', which explains that you are God, and your power is to create and save yourself and others. In applicable words, Jesus simply means "I AM". It is in no way referring to a literal man who came here to save us from death.
"I AM" is who you are. It is who EVERYONE is. Anyone who says the name, "I AM", is simply calling their creative power, because their true self is Jesus Christ. But do you know who else's name is "I AM"? God. As Exodus 3:13-3:15 explains, God claims his true name is "I AM". And that is His name throughout all generations. Which means anyone who ever has a "self", their true Self is God.
We are not simply a garment of flesh, here for a little, and gone soon. Our true self is immortal and everlasting. It's power, and it's creative. The more we experiment with manifesting, the more we exercise our imagination, the more we realize who we truly are. As I say, most will never hear this truth. And still more will hear it, and turn from it, mainly because of former training.
Our former training has taught us many things. But how false are they? We are coerced to believe that we have no power, save what our physical body and mind can force on this 3D plane. Enter manifesting. Then we're taught that we're simply shooting out vibrations and attracting objects via some non-personal force. This, again, is not true. I have had multiple experiences to prove this, before ever learning manifesting existed.
I've shared my mystical experiences before, but bringing them up again now is important to this message. I've had a near death experience, mystical experiences showing me who I am, but the most powerful one was when I was awake. I woke in the middle of the night, internally -- with my inner voice called, said, "In the name of Jesus Christ." At that exact moment, the literal sound of thunder emitted within the center of my skull... *CRACK*. It was the loudest crack of thunder I've ever heard. It wasn't a thought of thunder, it wasn't a feeling of thunder, it wasn't the idea of thunder, or a memory of thunder... It was a literal, physical sound of thunder landing directly front-and-center of my brain, within my skull. At this moment, in alignment with the sound, my brain started pulsating and electrifyingly reverberating -- alongside the dissipating sound, for about 30 seconds. The frontal cortex, directly behind my eyes, was the most effected -- the center of the electrifying. At that moment, I walked outside in shock, stared into the sky, and intuitively knew that I had power.
It wasn't until years later that I knew that manifesting was a real thing, what the experience was, and that another had experienced it. The only other I have ever met is Neville Goddard. He explains it as, "like a bolt of lightning - you uncoil right into your skull as it reverberates like thunder". Not "like" thunder, but actual thunder, though.
You will take the kingdom of heaven by storm. (Matthew 11:12)
As the lightning comes from the east and shines towards the west, so shall be the coming of the Son of Man. (Matthew 24:27) [East means "eternity" translated from Hebrew, west means "physical realm".]
For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. (Mark 17:24)
“When they had brought him to the place called The Skull, there they buried him.” (Luke 23:33)
"Now Golgotha means skull, but it’s the Hebrew form of skull. We speak of Calvary. Well, Calvary is the Latin form of skull. And so, the whole thing is simply your own wonderful human skull. That’s where the whole drama takes place. It all takes place in the imagination of man. There is nothing but God, and God is the human imagination. And the drama of God is unfolding within us." - Neville Goddard
What does this matter, and why am I telling you this? How can this be used?
Why does this matter?
It matters because this is who you truly are. Think about it. This isn't a metaphor. This is great news from eternity. I am not the only one to have had a mystical experience telling us who we really are. Many before me have had these experience, including those who had written the Gospels, and even before -- thousands of years ago. We are not a sack of flesh, whose awareness is limited to the skull. We are an eternal being, who came down from eternity to experience this world at the limit of Knowing. Another name for God is Awareness. Awareness knows. That is its' function. When we are pure Knowing, we know all -- for that is God.
Many have had more extreme experiences than I, but I can tell you that God is love, and Awareness, and Power, and Wisdom, and more... And THAT is who we truly are. We are all the one being called I AM. Our experience, and common knowledge make us feel like we're all 7.8 billion different people. But our "I AM", there is only one, "throughout all generations".
Why am I telling you this?
I am telling you this because it is the most essential, fundamental base of creation, of manifestation, and changing our lives. The bible is the most accurate symbolic representation for who we are, literally, and what we are capable of. It is allegorical.
A google search explains, "Allegory: is a form of narrative in which people, places and happenings have hidden or symbolic meaning." In the form of a story, people can remember. In the form of a story, meanings can enter into lowly doors. We do not have to be a genius to manifest, or to know who we are -- yet most will repress this, or claim it's blasphemy.
You are God. You create EVERYTHING. You manifested your fleshly body, knowing full well you would forget your true self, God. You made a deal with yourself, and entered here. And now you get to create your reality, as you've just woken up. You've probably been stirring a long time. But here it is... Wake up!
Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever. (Psalm 44:23)
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High. But ye shall die like men. (Psalm 82:6-7)
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; (Genesis 15:13)... "four hundred years" means the cross -- which is a symbol for the human body. We came here knowing we'd be a stranger to our Self (God), and die as flesh but if we're lucky we will awaken during this lifetime and find out who we really are...
How can this be used?
Ultimately, we are the most powerful being -- the only One True Being. Do not let anyone tell you that you are here for a little, and gone the next. Do not buy into what you were raised to believe, like me -- that I must obey a moral code lest I be cast into hell forever. Do not listen to those who would say you are only a human, without power. You are the powerful, miracle-worker, Jesus Christ. There is no other. When I say this, your former training may have you snap to the false idea that I am referring to what the Christian churches would teach... I am not.
I am simply telling you that the Christ of scripture is always referring to YOU. It's not referring to another. Any time you see Red Text in the Christian bible, which is the words of Jesus, look at it from the point of view of your imagination, or the God within you. It is always from the point of view of the immortal, infinitely powerful being that is you. When you look at it this way, and not of ANY OTHER PRECONCEIVED NOTION, you have found who you truly. are. It will all make sense. And you will know the power that you have.
Most will read this and abandon it. Fewer will listen, and hear only some of it. Still fewer will read this, and try it. I am not special for having experienced my mystical experiences. Many have had them. I am one of the few who share mine, for a practical reason -- to get you to experience them yourself.
Manifesting is the utilizing of who we truly are. Using our imagination, in any form, or decreeing something will push it into existence...
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. (John 14:14)
The "my name", spoken by Jesus Christ, is referring to, "I AM." I AM rich. I AM happy. I AM a business-owner. I AM on vacation. I AM married.
Whom do you say that I am? (Mark 8:27)
Whom do men say that I the Son of man, am? (Matthew 16:13)
Who are you saying that you are? When you equate these verses, it is saying that "I" is equal to "the Son of man", which is Jesus Christ, the Son of God. When you claim you are something, you manifest it. You kill your old conception of self, and nail the new conception on your cross, the human body. This is how you manifest.
But it is not only through verbal-decree. It is through visualizing yourself, from the same point of view as the decree above, that you are now the person you'd like to be. It's picturing a scenario in first person point of view where you already have become the person you want to be. Always imagine after the end. Add all the tones of reality, all the sensory vividness.
When you begin to look through the lens of God, you can now have a perfect lens of how to learn manifesting. Knowing who you truly are is critical, because it separates the impossible from the possible. You can manifest all things, if you can simply imagine it. Enter your journey of manifesting from the point of view of the all-powerful, eternal Being... Because THAT is who you truly are. Yes, you are locked into this garment of flesh... But when you continuously exercise your imagination, you will wake it up, more and more. And you will start to experiences the same things I have.
