Have you ever tried to quickly manifest something that you desperately needed? Maybe it was a sum of money, or a job, or a resolution to a problem. And what happened? Did it manifest, or did you bitterly give up after a few days or weeks?

More often than not, when people try to manifest something due to a life crisis (or simply in a hurry), they end up blocking it without realizing it. Either they don’t ask for the right thing, or they allow feelings of stress and fear to overwhelm their focus, or they try to force something to happen in a specific way and at a specific time. These things will mess up the manifestation process every time!

If this has ever happened to you, the information below should help you to understand why it happened, and how to avoid having it happen in the future:

Three things you must do to manifest successfully in urgent situations:

Get very clear on the essence of what you want.

Many people try to manifest something that they think will make them happy, but more often than not it misses the mark. The essence of what you want is really a feeling. For example, you want to feel peaceful about your financial situation; or you want to feel spiritually and emotionally connected in a relationship; or you want to feel fulfilled and inspired by your work.

These feelings are what you should be focusing on and expressing to the universe.

Express your desire clearly to the universe.

Rather than latching onto one method or way in which you can achieve this feeling, express the essence of what you want to the universe. Say aloud, or write down, “I intend to feel financially peaceful and secure. I intend to have much more income than expenses.” Then focus on that feeling – as if you already had such an experience in your life.

Surrender to the universe regarding how it shows up.

This last step is crucial. Don’t try to force things to happen on your own. Don’t try to make your desire be fulfilled in one specific way. Instead, detach (that means let go!) and let the universe deliver it in the best possible way. More often than not, you will be surprised and delighted by the creative, clever, and wonderful ways the universe can orchestrate the delivery of your desires. Trying to force it or interfere with the process will only cause major delays and obstacles.

If you need something to keep you busy while you wait, focus all of your attention on relaxing, feeling good and affirming that your desires will be arriving at any moment. Putting yourself into this relaxed, joyful state keeps you open and receptive to the good outcomes when they arrive.
