Home   Mandalas   Manifesting Diva   Generalised Goals May Exacerbate Depression

Manifesting happens anyway. Manifesting is what happens to us as we witness our life. What we have now is the result of unfocused manifesting. To direct the events of our life is to manifest consciously. Manifesting is a choice, no matter if we say so or not. We experience everything through that filter. Since that’s the case, we might do better for ourselves to design the outcomes that suit, the kind we like, the kind that describe our aspirations perfectly.

The key is focus.

When you focus on a specific time, place and result and more of your vision is achieved. Ability to focus is the number one trait that energizes and enables fulfilling manifesting outcomes. This focus shapes into a crystal-clear hologram, an image so sharp and a context so interwoven that your vision is a mere rearrangement of molecules.

The opposite of this crystal-clear vision is the careless daydream which passes for intention. Focus is not applied where blurry vision manifests the wrong scene! Those who visualize piles of one hundred-dollar bills are sometimes successful in a literal sense. They will manifest a position that gives them the job of handling lots of cash, but none of it is their own.

Abstractions are always a mistake!

Turn dreams into chunks of possibility. Follow that with a drive to fulfill. Make before-and-after measurements and commitments to ensure they are recognized. Live a little and celebrate lots of small accomplishments. Go for a large idea, create more than you think you can. You can always do more  and better at what you are visualizing.

Examples of Unfulfilling Goals:

  • “My objective is world peace.”
  • “I want to be known as a top actor.”
  • “I want a million dollars.”

Another type of generality can simply ignore anything that defines it in time and space, like a length of time (to confine yourself and commit) or a measurement seen by all.

Examples Without Commitment or Vision:

  • “I want to lose weight.”
  • “I want to fall in love.”
  • “I want to race in the decathlon.”

To correct this fatal error, to either category the great big over-generalized goal takes on new energy when you add various “reality checks” to more succinctly describe what you envision:

  • Time
  • Place
  • Date

Transform your depressing “goals” into energized and personal stands on which to bend your life in the direction you choose. Here’s a rewrite:

  • “I want to generate a peace mission in my local area with help from specific organizations in place to help bring greater civility (measured by standards described elsewhere) to my street before February 2018.”
  • “My first year as a world traveler would begin on a Sunday in March, and my first month of travel requires $2100 to launch and $1400 in monthly costs The blog is earning over $2000 per month so it’s not far off.”
  • “I want a million dollar support system between several friends who want to invest in real estate with me before next December.”

Develop a crystal-clear hologram, an image so rich and alive that you are walking and talking and living the reality of your achievement. Keep that image fresh, adding more detail as you approach it.

The very broad, and abstract goals may exacerbate depression. Clarity is what frees the mind to work toward specific, clearly visualized goals.http://news.liv.ac.uk/2013/07/08/people-with-depression-tend-to-pursue-generalised-goals/
