I often hear people questioning why it is that what they are intending to create has not manifested. Normally, if you find yourself asking such a question, there are only a few reasons. The first is that you’re feeling separate from your creation, and if you’re feeling separate from it, you’re living in lack. This means you’re feeling and living from emotions that are not based in wholeness or gratitude, such as fear, anger, frustration, and so on.

The second reason is that the very hormones that cause these negative emotions actually enhance our senses. As a result, we narrow our focus on matter, objects, and things. Because where we place our attention is where we place our energy, all of our energy is now invested in our three-dimensional reality, only further reinforcing the idea that if we can’t see our creation—if we can’t see our wealth, health, success, and so on—it doesn’t exist. If you believe this, then you are separate from it and now it will never happen because you’ve ceased creating. Instead, you’re creating the opposite of what you’re intending. You may have the intention in your mind, but your body is actually on a different agenda because it’s living in the past. That’s because thoughts are the currency of the brain and feelings are the currency of the body—and how you think and how you feel is your state of being.

This is why it’s so important to do the work every day—to consistently condition your body to the emotion of that future experience or creation. When you successfully do this enough times, you won’t feel separate from your creation and you won’t feel lack. You’ll feel like you’re already connected to it, and this in turn creates more feelings of wholeness. If you understand that you are whole—and that in the state of wholeness the thought of your creation brings it closer to you—then rather than thinking of your creation as something separate from you, it already is a part of you. This is how you begin to create outcomes in your life.

But if the thought of whatever you want creates the feeling of separation or lack, then you’ll never create it because you’ll always be keeping it apart from you. The outcome of that is a state of being whereby you’re hoping, wishing, forcing, and trying harder, and in this state of being there is no room for the unknown to appear. Why? Because you’re anticipating your creation to come in a way you can predict. Now you’re back to the Newtonian model and out of the quantum model of unpredictability and surprise.

When put in the context of a creation, wholeness is feeling the emotion of your future before it happens. If you’re already feeling the elevated emotions of your future, then you feel like it’s already happened. The outcome then is not a result, a thing, or an action—it’s a state of being.

If there is nothing for which you want, that means you feel like you already have everything you need. This is what draws your creation to you—because thoughts are electric and feelings are magnetic, and how you think and how you feel is what creates the energy of your future. The totality of how you think and how you feel is your state of being. If you practice wholeness as a state of being enough times, it becomes your state of being—and that’s when the magic really starts to happen.
