Manifesting Your Future Self; Harness The Power of Your Thoughts
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have all the good luck, and others only have bad luck, if any luck at all? It’s like some people attract good things in their life, and others, well, they don’t. It’s a question that has intrigued me over the years. Today, we’re going to dive into a concept that could radically change the way you think about your future.
“What you think about, you bring about.” ~Rhonda Byrne
This simple but profound truth sets the stage as we explore how your thoughts and the energy you emit play a significant role in manifesting your future self.
The Energetic Universe
Our journey begins by understanding the energetic nature of our thoughts. While it might seem mystical, this concept is firmly grounded in science.
Everything is made of energy.
I have a vivid memory as a child of looking at my very solid desk, learning that everything is made of molecules, filled with a lot of space in between, all vibrating very fast. I was perplexed and amazed by this idea. Then I learned that water could change from a liquid to a solid or gas depending on how FAST those molecules were vibrating.
What you may be surprised to learn is that your thoughts are energy too!
Quantum Physics of Energy
The fact that your thoughts are energy is not mere wishful thinking. It’s rooted in the realm of quantum physics, the science, and study of matter and energy at the most fundamental level. Quantum physics aims to uncover the properties and behaviors of the building blocks of nature. Behavior is an interesting word in this definition. Science has just begun to reveal the profound connection between thoughts and energy, even at the microscopic level.
In the quantum world, we find that thoughts and energy are intricately connected, influencing the very fabric of our reality. Studies have shown that particles separated by vast distances can instantaneously influence each other, defying our ideas about time and space.
Quantum physics has now proven that our thoughts have the power to influence the outcomes of experiments!
The Vibrational Reality
Now, let’s take a closer look at the concept of vibrations.
All matter is composed of tiny molecules. These molecules are bound together by their inherent vibrations, like the glue that holds the universe together. And everything, from the chair you’re sitting on to the thoughts in your mind, has a unique vibration.
Have you ever seen those mesmerizing experiments with sound energy? When sound waves pass through sand or vibrate water, they create intricate patterns. These patterns visualize how vibrations work, demonstrating beautifully how energy shapes and organizes matter.
The Energy in Our Interactions
Now, let’s connect these scientific concepts to our everyday lives.
You’ve likely met people who seem to sap away your energy. Sometimes they are referred to as “energy vampires.” The energy we encounter in these exchanges significantly affects our well-being. We may leave feeling exhausted after spending time with people who emit negative energy.
On the other hand, perhaps you’ve experienced a person who seems to radiate. These kinds of people exude positivity and serenity. You may feel uplifted, and even refreshed after spending time together.
When you were around someone who radiated negativity, how did it feel?
And conversely, when you experienced positivity, how did it uplift your spirit?
It’s proof of the influence of energy in our lives, and how this energy can significantly affect our well-being.
And you exude energy, too. Picture a day when everything fell into place seamlessly, like a beautifully orchestrated symphony. Maybe it was a perfect moment on a vacation, an event where everything worked out exactly as planned. Perhaps it was a connection you had in meeting someone new, or a solution fell into place better than you dreamed. These moments of alignment and serenity are when you’re in the flow, connecting and experiencing the beauty of your positive energy.
Manifesting Your Future Self
So, how do all these ideas about energy, vibration, and thoughts relate to manifesting your future self?
The energy generated by your thoughts directly contributes to your vibrational frequency. Your thoughts shape your frequency. As a self-leader, by consistently choosing to think positively and envisioning your desired future, you emit a higher-frequency energy that attracts similar vibrations from the universe.
This high-frequency energy becomes a magnetic force, drawing into your life those people, experiences, and circumstances that align with your vibrational frequency. This is the essence of manifesting your future self.
Manifesting in Action
Let me share a couple of personal stories. When my husband and I were looking for our first home, we made a list of all the characteristics or attributes the house needed. It was a long list, and namely had to fit our budget. We found a cute cape cod that met most of our criteria. It was a great house, but something just didn’t feel right, so we paused our house hunting.
The following year, we resumed our hunt and found another cute cape cod, in another neighborhood. This one fulfilled every attribute – including attributes we hadn’t considered yet. You see, we imagined ourselves living in that home, parking our cars in the 2-car garage, cooking dinners, and raising our imaginary family in that home. And, what began as our starter home, became our forever home!
Another example that comes to mind is when I was job hunting. I had a list of attributes I wanted in my new job, including working part-time, to better meet the needs of my “real” young family. When I landed on the “right” job, everything flowed effortlessly. I had two interviews in the same week and an offer by Friday. In reviewing their employment offer, I laughed to myself. I’d included on the list, “a company with a heart”. I’d written down those words, and not only did the company have a heart, but “heart” was in the company’s name.
Manifesting My Future
And more recently, when I began contemplating a transition to full-time coaching, I began imagining my future. What could I envision myself doing? Making a meaningful difference in the lives of others and working with interesting people. Where did I want to work? I pictured myself working from home. How would I prepare for this new role? I could see myself learning how to do lots of new things. Who do I want to be? Immediately, I began to surround myself with people who would inspire and support me in my new journey to becoming the person I wanted to be.
Each time I embraced the power of manifesting and shifted my thoughts toward the future I desired, remarkable things started happening. Opportunities I never imagined came my way, and my journey to my future self began to unfold.
More Than Hoping and Dreaming
But here’s the catch – manifesting isn’t just about hoping and dreaming or wishing and waiting. You can see from my story, that manifesting is an active process. Instead of wishing to win the lottery, it’s about doing the work and saving money to buy a home. Rather than waiting for the perfect job to fall into your lap, it’s building skills and experience that add up over time, that allows your future to seemingly, magically unfold.
- Manifesting requires your active participation. It starts with creating a vivid mental image of your future self and the life you desire. Visualize it. Try making a vision board.
- Write down your vision, giving it a tangible form. Read it often, reinforcing your commitment to the journey. Imagine how you feel, immerse yourself in the vision.
- Take deliberate, small actions, one step at a time, knowing that each action contributes to the unfolding of your dreams. Trust that the universe is in alignment with your vision and that it will conspire to make it a reality.
Harnessing the Power of Your Thoughts
In conclusion, we’ve explored the profound connection between thoughts, energy, and manifesting. The power is within you to actively create the future you desire.
I encourage you to harness this power in your life. Take charge of your thoughts, and you’ll take charge of your future. You can manifest a better future self and a life you love living.
