There are 3 things you should always do when writing a manifestation list. (The following is an excerpt from To The Highest And Best of All Concerned, a free report on how to write a manifestation list.)
Please remember, this is in additionto aligning the five pillars of manifestation: attention, intention, imagination, emotion, and faith. Without this alignment, you won’t get very far, list or no list.
So here’s how I write a manifestation list.
Secret Tip #1: The Karmic Protection Clause
At the end of every manifestation list, I add another safety clause—and I never, ever skip that one:
“To the highest and best of all concerned.”
(Followed by “So be it” and my signature.)
This one’s crucial, so don’t forget it. It keeps you from accidentally hurting yourself and others.
You want to get that rent money by getting a large tax refund—not by breaking your leg in six places and winning a lawsuit against the store owner who failed to de-ice his sidewalk.
You want to get that three-bedroom house through a series of fortunate events—not by your mother dying and leaving it to you.
Or you have a huge crush on that tall, dark, handsome coworker that you ask for him to fall in love with you--which is a violation of his free will and a big-ass karmic boomerang.
If you do make a glaring mistake writing your manifestation list, the Karmic Protection Clause will shield you from the consequences by undoing it. It protects you from errors that could cost you dearly.
It means nothing can happen that goes against the highest and best interest of any person involved in your manifestation, whether it’s yourself, your family and friends, or some stranger you don’t even know.
Secret Tip #2: The Middle—Be as Specific as You Can
The Soulmate Manifestation List I wrote for my husband consisted of 72 bullet points. He ended up matching 70 of them.
Don’t be afraid to be super specific. Exception: For soulmate lists, you should never ask for a specific person (violation of their free will) or at the very least add all the safety clauses.
I also recommend not asking for a specific appearance (like dark hair, blue eyes, etc.) because the person who turns out to be perfect for you might look nothing like you imagined him or her.
However, when it comes to specific inner qualities, don’t be shy to go into great detail.
I learned that the hard way when I wrote my first soulmate list. I was just recovering from an unrequited crush. The guy had been funny and charming but never revealed anything about himself.
Trying to pry any kind of personal information out of him was like pulling the proverbial teeth.
So I wrote in my manifestation list, He is open and can freely talk about his feelings.
A few days later, I met Joshua, a poet who had moved to Sedona from Oregon. We got together very quickly, and one week later I let him temporarily move in with me because he got kicked out of the place where he’d stayed before.
That should have been a red flag, but I wasn’t really thinking much. Joshua was very sensitive and completely open about his feelings.
Well... maybe a little too open. In fact, he was constantly complaining how his tender feelings were being hurt by people who were mistreating him. The world was an unfair and cruel place, and apparently it was out to get poor, sweet Joshua.
I tolerated his perpetual whining for about ten days before I kicked him out. Needless, the end of our rooming together was also the end of the relationship.
In my next manifestation list, I wrote, He is open and can freely talk about his feelings, but he also possesses inner strength and knows when to shut up.
As I said, cover all the bases.
Secret Tip #3: Write Clearly, Positively, and in Present Tense
Wishing and wanting will only get you more of the same: wishing and wanting, not the actual thing that you wish for. So make sure not to sound needy when you write a manifestation list. Phrase it in the present tense, as if what you want is already here.
Don’t say, “I want a new car.”
Say, “I have a new car that’s running perfectly.”
Try to phrase all your affirmations in a positive way and avoid words like not, never, don’t, can’t, etc.
Don’t say, “I don’t smoke anymore.”
Say, “I am free from cigarettes.”
Write clearly and leave no doubt what each of your affirmations means. To achieve that, I recommend short sentences. Convoluted tapeworm sentences have a high potential of having unintended consequences.
