Are You Building Castles in the Sky?
If you’ve been dreaming about being a movie star, walking the red carpet and living the high life and you’re wondering why you’re not there yet, you’re probably building castles in the sky. Visualizing what you want can only take you so far. In order to wake up from your day dream, you need to take action right away. But not just any action – right action.
The Process of Manifestation
To help you get started, you need to know how the process of manifestation works. It’s actually very simple. If you can remember these four simple things, you’ll be up and running in no time.
Thoughts lead to feelings. Feelings lead to actions. Actions lead to results. When a thought arises in your mind, you either feel good or bad about it, or somewhere in between. Then depending on the emotion it evokes, you take some sort of action which will yield some sort of result.
Let’s break down a simple thought process so you see how it works. “I want to become a famous recording artist.” If you’re excited about the thought, you’re apt to take positive actions to make that a reality, like taking singing lessons, learning how to record songs, making CD’s, and meeting the right people so you get up and running, all of which will point you toward your goal so you see the result you desire. The more excited you get about it and the more energy you put into the realization of the goal, the quicker you will see results.
Now let’s say you have the same thought but you immediately think, “It’s too late for me,” or “I can never do that, or “I don’t have the money to do that right now.” Chances are it will evoke a bad feeling and you will table your initial thought and take no action to bring your singing career into fruition.
If you have mixed emotions about the idea and you force yourself to go into something half-hearted without fully immersing yourself in it with unbridled excitement, you’ll be holding back a lot of your magical manifestation energy and see fewer results.
You can apply the same thought process with becoming a movie star or famous writer, director or filmmaker. If you’re excited and passionate about the thought, you’re apt to take positive actions like learning how to act, how to write a professional screenplay, how to produce a film and where and how to network with influential people who can help catapult you to success. If you have negative thoughts, feelings or mixed emotions, you’re likely to table your initial creative thoughts and your dreams forever.
You Can’t Until You Can
While we’re on the subject of singing, acting, writing, producing, here’s a little enlightenment tip for you, especially if you’re thinking, “Well, I can’t sing, act or write so this doesn’t apply to me.” Take a moment and observe the negative thought. What was true a moment ago does not have to be true in the next moment. You can’t until you can. That’s enlightenment. Take it with you in everything you do.
I’ll tell you a secret. If you are completely tone deaf or don’t think you can sing and resign yourself to that sour note, you will never experience the magnificent voice that hides behind that negative veil. But if you take some time and sing at the top of your lungs, off key for as long as it takes until you get the voice you want, you will experience the extraordinary gift of spiritual manifestation. It’s almost like the universe says, “Okay already. They’re serious! Give it to them!” On a lighter note, no pun intended, the universe would rather listen to the voice of an angel anyway. So give it your all and see what happens. I did it so I know it works. It’s the same thing with acting, writing and producing. The more you immerse yourself in the craft, the quicker you master it.
Next time you think something is out of your reach, think again. It’s time to start growing. Never let a bout of doubt take you out. And never listen to other people’s discouragement about pursuing a career in Hollywood. Always look at successful people and say, “If they could do it, I could do it.” Get excited, get up to speed and get going! It’s that simple!
