Extending is just another word for creating. According to ACIM, God extended himself and created us- you and me- in His likeness. Which means, we are co-creators of our lives. We have the exact same powers of creation that God has since we were made like Him. (Or Her. Remember, it’s just a damn title, don’t get hung up on it.) Having this power of extension is FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC news! It means we can extend into our lives what we want, simply by BEING it!
You manifest into your life that which you already are. So when we're coming from a place of anxiety, or scarcity, or anger, or judging someone, or hating someone, or resentment, or fear, we are manifesting more of that.
What you already are, extends into the world, and you attract more into your life that matches that extension.
I was just having this conversation with my fiancé. He wants to manifest more work and financial stability, and I was like “dude, you are NOT going to attract more work and money into your life, because what you are right now is a hot stress case! You get more of what you ARE. You can’t be a match for good, when you’re in this mental shitstorm, worried and stressed out. You have to change your state of being.”
If you’re wondering HOW you change your state of being, that’s what prayer and meditation are for. Through prayer and meditation, we change our state. We change what we are. Prayer and meditation are two tools that God uses to heal our mind, which heals our being. By implementing the first two practices, you can then do practice number three and step into what it is you truly want to create in your life. See how these three steps all go hand in hand?
Whatever you already are, it shines out into the world and you attract more of that and in this day and age, what are most of us putting out there? We’re stressed right? Most of us feel anxiety, or depression, or worry. Most of us are in some form of fear. Anything negative is fear. If you’re worried about how you’re going to pay your bills, stressing out about getting married or having babies, anxiety over being broke or your body...it’s all FEAR. Most of us are in some form of FEAR. That’s what we are in. That’s the energy we are in and since it’s what we are, we extend that shit into the world and get more of it.
This is the reason a lot of our manifestations are completely fucked up or not happening or are not coming into our lives. It's because we're coming from a place of being broken. We are coming from a place of being hurt, we're coming from a place of pain. We're coming from a place of scarcity, we are coming from a place of FEAR!
You create more of what you ARE!
So the key here to manifesting what you desire is to change what you are, change your state of being. And again, you do this by using prayer and meditation to connect with your Higher Power and have Him (or Her) heal your mind where all your fears and worries live. That is the power of those two steps and as you heal and heal, you’ll feel better and better and be able to do practice three and extend more into this world what you truly want.
I extend peace, love, and joy, every single day. And so my life is filled with peace, love, and joy. It’s that simple. Whenever I lose my peace, or shit happens that messes me up, I return to prayer and meditation to heal me. That simple homeskillet!
The only requirement here is that you SHOW UP for these practices and implement them. Practice one and two require your effort, practice three is a natural side effect from practice one and two.
