Ever since I learned to manifest, I learned that there are "religious" people who believe that manifesting is not aligned to have a spiritual faith. I have never understood that. In my mind, these two are not in conflict. Here are the reasons why.
1. What you want, wants you. God does not put a desire in your heart, without giving you a way to achieve it.
God is not out to "get" you. You love the things you love and want the things you want because of every single life experience you have had has lead you to these conclusions. So, there is no "your" way vs. "God's" way - it is the same outcome, though, it could have vastly different paths. But, that is no different than when you ask for what you want and the Universe delivers it in its own way. You do not get to control the "how" but the "what" comes from your heart, which is tied to a higher power.
2. Handing it over to God vs. Manifesting
This is where things get SO fun! Ok... so, there is this feeling of I can either do what God asks of me or I can be happy. Like the two are in conflict with one another. Let's look at that belief.
Have your ever really, really, really wanted something because you knew it would be the best thing or make you happy and it turned out to be, well, not-so-great. Or, have you ever done something that you had to and you knew it would be terrible and it turned out to be amazing?
Welcome to life. None of us are in control and none of us know what amazing plan is unfolding for us. What about when something "terrible" happened and it turned out to be a blessing in disguise?
The reason this one is hard is because we believe we are in control. However, if you admit, you are not in control and that in fact, life would work a heck of a lot better, if a higher power (your higher self, God) was in charge, then there is no conflict.
My favorite way to do this is to do the morning prayer from a Course in Miracles, where you hand your day over to God. This is an understanding that the way God/Higher Power has your day unfold is much better than anything you can come up with for you to get not necessarily "what you want" but "what you need".
Where would you have me go? What would you have me to? What would you have me say and to whom?
When you hand your day over, what you will see is the "how" on the things you want, start to take care of themselves. You can be clear on the "what". Then, hand the day over. And, watch miracles on "how" what you want shows up. And, in some cases, you will see that you get something even better than the thing you thought you wanted.
Most importantly, life gets a heck of a lot easier. Instead of getting out there and making it happen, you can hand it over and allow it to be delivered. There is this feeling that everything will go to h*** if you hand your day over to a higher power. But, what happens is life gets a whole bunch easier and you get what you want easier than you ever have before.
