“I hear some places that I should visualize in as much detail as possible. Then I hear from other places that I shouldn’t worry about the details, and let the Universe do it. Which is right?”
It depends on which part of the manifestation process you’re looking at. To master the art of conscious manifestation, we aim to master three Universal Laws.
Let’s look at each Law as it applies to visualization.
The Law of Attraction
What you send out, you get back. It’s a vibrational thing if you need to add physics into the mix to believe it: Like Attracts Like. This law applies whether you know you are doing it, or not.
The Law of Deliberate Creation
Now knowing that what you send out you get back, here’s your chance to make conscious decisions about what it is you actually WANT to experience in your physical world.
Send out the image in as much detail as is important to you. If it’s not important, such as the color of your next partner’s eyes, then don’t bother visualizing it. We incarnated with the desire for some surprises! Then feel the feeling of having what you sent out. Remain in the feeling of having it for as long as you can.
The Law of Allowing
After you’ve defined what you want, and sent it out, now you allow it in. This part is the most challenging for us, since we were raised in a society that asserts that change only occurs by taking physical action.
It is this part of the manifestation process that trips people up when it comes to details: they try to rationalize in their minds how they will get from where they are…..to where they want to be.
This is merely a case of using outdated tools! We are attempting to define the holographic process of creation through linear terms. Your reality is holographic, and you are not limited by linear time unless you believe that you are. Try using a new tool: Trust.
Rather than taking action or worrying about you needing to be in the right place, at the right time for your desired outcome to occur, leave that part up to the Universe. Go have fun!
You can move to any timeline that you can imagine, and jumping to it is simply the process of focusing on the preferred timeline more often than you focus on the current one, with a knowing that both are just as real. You will soon begin to see bits and pieces of your desired timeline show up in your physical reality.
Still a big pill to swallow?
Of course you may slip up in the beginning. There is no need to chastise yourself if you find yourself devising a path from where you are to where you want to be. We’re letting go of time, for crying out loud. That’s a big belief system for most people to transmute; and you’ll get there as you see more examples of how malleable time really is.
And when you loosen up on yourself about any slip-ups, you allow those old belief systems to arise and be processed. Try it with a toy laser gun if you tend to be hard on yourself.
So in answer to your question, both resources are right, depending on which part of the manifestation process you’re focusing. Send it out in detail, and allow your desire to show up in its own package. The specifics you sent out will be included, and yet your new partner’s eye color will be a welcome surprise to you.
