You are the genie in the bottle
The law of manifestation
Written by Frank La Macchia


The genie represents our spiritual nature, our highest consciousness. The bottle represents the physical world around us. The cork is a symbol of our beliefs, our ego personality, our inner critic. It is these beliefs that can free us or limit us.

How would you feel if you knew that you were the co- creator of your life and that you are manifesting in your life right now? As a metaphysician and professional musician since the age of 14, my own personal experiences and knowledge conclusively supports documented research and what has been known for centuries - that we have this amazing power of manifestation.
Over the years, hundreds of people have asked me how they, too, can manifest in their lives. The simple answer is, that you already are manifesting - as a result of what you continually focus and think about. We do it consciously or unconsciously throughout our lives. Sometimes unfortunately we end up with things or circumstances that we don't necessarily want and wonder how they prevailed. We almost wish we had the power of hindsight to help us with simple solutions to some perplexing problems.
The good news is, you can actually transform hindsight into foresight, which can be accessed by being still, tuning in and listening to what your feelings are telling you. Foresight is resting in your deepest truth with the rest of the qualities of faith, belief, passion, trust, love and miracles - just to name a few, and of course whatever you perceive God or the Universe to be. It resides in this common space of silence that we can all access. If you want to know where to find it, look inside your own heart, all too often the last place we look. In your own heart, the hours are 24/7 and no appointment is required. Simply place your hand on your heart, and wait for your feelings to show you in. Once you are in, communicate with them and listen carefully with full awareness and observation.
The other main character that comes along for the ride on our journey, if we allow it to is fear. This is all the doubts and uncertainties that we may or may not acknowledge. Fear is best mates with criticism, judgment and some of the other destructive crew like guilt, shame and worry. The comedian of the ship is laziness who only shows up on Sundays. They all party and sail on the ship of illusion and are the experts in helping you get what you don't want. The ship is called 'EGO ROCKS'. If you want to know where to find the ship and go for a cruise, look inside your own mind and I bet you they'll be there with bells on. They do anything to keep you from your heart because they intuitively know that darkness (fear) disappears in the presence of light (love).
A lot of people focus on and think about what they don't want instead of focusing on what they do want.
Another question that is often asked is "how did I get what I did not want"???
It's well known that what is focused on in thought, expands. So if you focus on the problem, the negativity of the problem expands, if you focus on the solution, the solution expands, problem solved. It's really that simple. In fact it's so simple that a lot of people don't buy it until you make it complicated.
Here is how this works in more detail
The mind is an inborn quality, an instrument that when it is used in a focused way starts to create events in our lives. It does not discriminate or judge what you focus on. It doesn't know whether it's something you want or don't want. It just simply understands, "let's go for it". This is why it's imperative to observe what you are thinking, saying and what you continually focus on.
When you put your energy and thoughts into something you don't want, you actually start creating more of what you don't want. In other words if you stay on the boat 'EGO ROCKS' you will eventually invest your energy and slowly but surely become those thoughts.
Let us examine some classic thought processes that can be clearly and only heard from the boat 'EGO ROCKS'.
"You watch, I'll bet you I'll make a mistake in my speech tonight". "You're an idiot, I can't have that, I don't deserve it". "Oh no!, its winter and here comes the cold". "It's just too hard I'll never get it". And the most popular statement is," I can't do that. ! WHAT WILL THEY THINK"? This last statement can really stop you from getting what you want. It can also help you become the manifestation of somebody else's reality. In other words, you may live somebody else's truth rather than your own. Seek advice not approval.
I'm sure you can come up with many more examples of your own. How on earth are any of the above thoughts going to help you achieve what you do want??? How will "it's just too hard, I'll never get it" going to help you get it???? If you keep sending out negative energy and thought patterns to yourself and the world, you will keep seeing that energy in your own life. But you see, we often say and do things unconsciously - or even consciously - without being aware of what the consequences are. You cannot manifest abundance from thoughts of "I have nothing in my life". You will start to create more of having nothing. And you know, it's not what you want. One way of knowing what you've been focusing on is by observing what you have in your life right now. Reflect for a few minutes on your life and ask yourself, how have I contributed to what I have in my life?
Changing your way of being
First, you need to get clear on what it is you want to create for yourself. Then begin to consciously change your thoughts, words, actions and what you focus on to match
your greatest vision. For example "How can I create more abundance in my life? "How can I attract more love into my life". This will open up new and infinite possibilities for you to choose from. Remove the words" I can't" from in front of your sentences - "I can't" shuts off all possibilities.
The more we direct our energies and become conscious of what we are being, thinking and doing, the more power we have to create the circumstances and events in our lives that we truly desire. Then, we can make the shift from fancifully wanting things, to actively and consciously creating them into a reality.
You will experience miracles all around you
when you see life more by its possibilities
rather than its limitations.

Go for it
