When you get triggered by a threatening stimulus, your amygdala and hypothalamus work together to dump chemicals into your body such as cortisol and adrenaline so that you can fight or flee. In addition, blood is diverted from your brain so that your extremities will have more energy and power.
It’s a self-defense mechanism that can come in very handy when you are being physically threatened.
But as we evolve as a human race and become more civil, it becomes less and less necessary to physically fight or run. The only problem is that most of us can still be triggered from normal day to day stresses where we aren’t able to use the chemicals created in our bodies to fight or flee.
The result is extra hormones dumped into our system such as cortisol, the stress hormone, which can cause a number of health related issues such as more susceptibility to cancer.
But it’s not just important to exercise our minds in relaxation techniques in order to maintain good health. It’s also important to learn how to relax so that we can be a vibrational match to the things that we want to manifest.
This article is going to cover this topic in more detail, and include a guided relaxation manifestation meditation that you can record and use in order to manifest whatever you want.
Are you ready?
Great! Let’s go…
Relaxation and the Law of Attraction
We all intuitively know how important it is to relax. When we are relaxed, we think better. We think more clearly. We act more decisively. And we make better decisions. This is why relaxed athletes perform better under stressful game situations. It’s also why students do better on tests when they implement relaxation techniques.
But what does relaxation mean in terms of the Law of Attraction?
Basically, a relaxed body and mind is a healthy, aligned body and mind – it’s the natural state of well-being that we all can have. When we are relaxed, we have better and more clear communication between us and our inner-beings, or that source energy part of us. And as far as the Law of Attraction is concerned, when we are relaxed, we are a vibrational match to the things that we want.
Stress Blocks Your Manifestation
When we are stressed out and upset, we offer up resistance to the Universe which blocks us from the well-being that otherwise could be ours. Resistance is any negative emotion such as anger, frustration, worry, doubt, fear, concern, disappointment, stress, sadness, depression, guilt, shame, etc…
But when you are truly relaxed, instead, you feel good.
If you knew the amount of impact that feeling good had on your ability to attract everything that you wanted into your life, you’d do your absolute best to be happy and relaxed in life no matter what was going on!
Neville Goddard, the teacher and mystic on the best ways to visualize understood this. He understood the power of relaxing to the point between full consciousness and sleep.
Now, let’s go through the steps.
Relaxation Technique to Manifest
Try the following meditation exercise in order to fully relax and manifest what you want.
In this meditation, what you want to do is to get as close to sleep as you can without falling asleep. In order to accomplish this, one technique is to sit in a chair and instead of folding your hands in your lap, put one arm on your armrest with your forearm and hand pointed up – either at a comfortable angle or vertically.
The point is that if you get too close to falling asleep, your arm will fall and gently wake you back up so that you’ll stay awake through the meditation.
Before you begin, first, choose something that you want to manifest. It could be a new house, a new car, a lot of money, a vacation – whatever you want. Figure out what you want to manifest for this exercise first so that you won’t have to in the middle of the meditation.
This is a guided meditation. You could record it for yourself and then play it back.
When you breathe slowly, you signal your parasympathetic nervous system that it’s okay to relax. Slowly close your eyes and take a deep breath in and breath out slowly. Repeat this process 3 times.
Take a deep breath in and hold it for a few moments and release it slowly. One last time…
Take a deep breath in, hold it for a count of 3 and release it slowly. Next, focus on and relax your feet and ankles. Feel them relax and let go. Next, relax your lower and upper legs. Feel the muscles relax and let go. Now, relax your buttocks and thighs. Let them go and relax.
Next, relax your stomach, chest and back. Feel yourself sink into your chair just a little more. Now, relax your arms and hands. Feel them relax while still keeping one arm up. Now, relax your neck, your face and all the muscles in your head. Feel them let go and relax.
And now, starting at the number 50, slowly count down to 1.
49, 48, 47, 46, 45 – keep going all the way to 1…
And with every new number, relax just a little bit more. You are now very relaxed. Feeling very relaxed but aware. Now, think again about what you want to manifest. See it clearly in your mind’s eye. We are going to imagine it so clearly that it feels real.
But instead of just seeing it, immerse yourself into the experience. See through your own eyes using all 5 senses – see, taste, touch, smell and hear exactly what you’d see, taste, touch, smell and hear if it was in real life.
And now, see someone significant to you compliment you on your new manifestation. Seeing through your own eyes, use as much visual detail as you can. Take a couple minutes to imagine the scene.
Now, imagine that your manifestation is here with you – right now. How do you feel?
Milk the feeling.
Wallow for a little while in the feeling of having what you just manifested. Feel it as if it is here, right here, right now…
Take a minute to focus on the feeling.
End the Meditation
Now, slowly come back to your current reality. But bring your manifestation with you. Don’t see this as just an exercise.
See this as your new creation. You have manifested it.
It is here. When you are ready,
Open your eyes.
Being in a state of relaxation is helpful on both a physical and a manifestation level. The Law of Attraction teachings are that you are a powerful, spiritual being capable of anything. You can manifest whatever you want. It’s the idea that one who is connected to source energy is more powerful than millions who are not.
Connection to your own source is key to manifesting. And relaxing while imagining what you want is one of the best ways to do it.
Now you can use the included guided meditation to attract whatever you want more deliberately than ever before.
