This picture of Marilyn might seem like a parody about our fixation on money, but it's not. Nor is this post supposed to be a how-to article on getting rich. Rather, I wish to provide a template for what I understand to be the certain preconditions for materializing unfulfilled desires.
The topic of manifestation is expansive since it’s all about the innumerable facets to our essence-being. And so, in this post, I’ll try to summarize a few key points and then come back to this topic later to elaborate in greater depth. I expect there may be several parts to this because there are so many ways to approach this topic.
If you haven’t already watched or read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, I would recommend it as an introduction to what manifestation means. Many find this production unrealistic, but then, that might say more about the sceptics than the content itself. In any case, there’s more that needs to be discussed in The Secret since it is a vast topic that has everything to do with our attitudes human complexities.
So, to get us started, here are a few ideas that life has taught me.
To manifest what you want, you need to know what you want. This might seem obvious, but what is not so obvious is whether this desire is from you or from someone else. Also, ask; does this desire come from your mind or your heart, that is, from your ego or your the authentic you?
Do you feel good about it? Or is what your mind thinks you want, based more on what someone else wants for, or from you? In other words, is this desire emanating from your inner being, or from the illusory, grasping ego that purports to be you?
Realize that you get to choose what you wish to manifest, not someone else. You have freedom. So why not come up with something that expresses who you are rather than mimicking what someone else might have accomplished. Get creative because you are creative... even if you don’t realize it.
If you want to manifest wealth, then get past the limiting beliefs that you place on yourself. The universe is infinitely spacious. Ask why you are holding yourself back, then get past whatever that is. It's probably a lie you've been telling yourself because of something that happened to you in the past. Once you identify what you wish to manifest by getting excited about it, you have taken the first steps towards manifestation.
Feeling jazzed about what you have envisioned is what brings your creation into existence because it's an extension of who you are. Dreams fall apart and are destroyed by negativity, so that is not where you want to be. If you believe in victimhood and entitlement, you'll have to change your attitude about abundance. But that’s another topic for another time.
To manifest anything, it's necessary to consciously focus on what you wish to bring about with expectation and excitement. Emotions are big in this process because they produce the vibes that energise the process of manifesting. If we feel emotions of failure before we start, we will fail, but as we are more likely to succeed if we already feel the vibes of success.
But it should begin by taking little steps rather than setting unrealistic goals, otherwise, you might get discouraged and quit. You can't afford to bring down the frequencies that are necessary for manifestation. This really is all about the state of consciousness. That's why, to make things happen, you need to remain detached with how things will manifest, refusing to fall into fear and striving. It's important to have an attitude of gratitude, even for setbacks you might encounter, realizing they are just lessons you need to learn to get things right.
If you consciously stay in a zone of feeling good about your goal, you will ultimately rise above whatever limiting thoughts that tell you can’t achieve your desires. Depending on how entrenched these misconceptions might be, it might require some work to clear the path. Then you can build up more steam with more and more exciting visualizations that propel you into action. Become a happy conscript to wherever your vision leads. Get excited about it, rather than waste your time trying to talk yourself into something your heart is not into. If you’re honest with yourself, you’ll know the difference.
As Joseph Campbell once said: 'Follow your bliss.' I would add, find your passion and follow it to whatever mountain top it leads you to. If you discover the journey there doesn’t feel so blissful, then find something else. There’s no end to what you could get passionate about once you focus on your heart rather than just your mind. Remember, the mind on its own is confused about everything without the heart’s inner wisdom and doesn’t get passionate about anything, just analytical.
Does your desire come from your ego, or from who you are deep within? Do you want abundance to impress others or, would you prefer it fulfil your underlying desires for new experiences, relationships and surroundings? Why wait to write a bucket list in your senior years. Do it now… by envisioning abundance now! Maybe it’s travelling the world, having a more comfortable living environment, etc. There is nothing wrong in wanting to manifest great abundance into your life, even if it means getting rich. (Smile). In fact, what is wrong is just the opposite. By limiting yourself,, you rob yourself of what your soul wished to give expression to; the inner abundance of what you denied yourself.
Most of us, I think, have latent desires stashed within that we haven't acknowledged, let alone released into manifest reality. And it might have nothing to do with money. At least that's how it was for me about seven years ago when I started my writing career. At this time, I have written six novels out of the seven I’ve conceived. They are more or less completed and I can hardly wait to write the last once the others are edited. I’m excited about sharing my fascinating story that has come out of my inner abundance. At least for now, abundance is not about earning money so much as giving artistic expression through writing a novel series that took over my life.
I said above it is necessary to find your passion, but what if you don’t know what your passion is? I can’t say I knew I had a passion for writing novels. So, in that sense, I didn’t find it so much as it found me. Really! I was doing some journaling when the story suddenly, and unexpectantly, began to emerge. First, it was just an illustration to a point I was making, then it became an allegory. Before I knew it, it was someone’s dream who suddenly came alive and started narrating his story to me. (Maybe it was me from a parallel life. LOL)
Stange stuff! No one was more surprised than me. But at least I had put myself in the zone where I could receive a vision for the creative expression I was looking for but didn't believe I could do. Then the rest took care of itself. Often that’s how we discover our passion. Our mind can’t find it, but our heart can if we are open to what might come.

So, for me, this is the best example I can offer about manifesting from my life experiences. Yes, I was able to manifest plenty of money at various times in my past (when not losing it), but that pales in comparison to creating books out of nothing. Isn’t that what manifesting is... something out of nothing?
If what you think you want comes from your ego’s desires, you will not be happy in achieving your goals, because this phantom has no desire for you to be happy. In fact, the ego’s illusory existence depends on your unhappiness. However, if what you want has to do with a genuine desire to be happy and to reach out to others and their happiness, then you know you are on the right track for manifesting. It’s okay to be in ‘service to self,’ provided your primary drive is to be in ‘service to others’ because, in the divine scheme, we can only receive what we give.
So, if you’re passion is to provide some product or service to become more abundant, first ask if you’re more enthused about whether your business is in service to yourself and is it in service to others. Those who put the best interests of their customers first will succeed over those who don’t; that just common sense and so, therefore, before you go too far with your plans to manifest your dreams, apply this principle to everything. Service to others first makes it win-win, and that’s a great vibe.
Last word to the Flying Lizards...
There is so much more to be said, so let me conclude this post with a few more ideas I wish to pursue in my next post on manifesting abundance.
- Consciousness is about choosing where to focus. This is why it is good to first ‘Know Thyself’ or at least get to ‘Know Thyself.’
- Choosing and deciding creates momentum.
- Creativity is in the choosing… that leads to manifestation.
- Learn how to imagine what you haven’t yet experienced. It’s not hard… just allow
- Be a vibrational match with what you want. Make what you want your focus.
- Allow yourself to be alert to the feelings of abundance coming your way. Be caught up with feelings of joy, peace, bliss, and all that’s uplifted. Be caught up with higher vibes to encourage your imaging abundance.

SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: THE SUMMIT
This the first in a series of five Elysium narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips, who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding of life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.
An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality, and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil, and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

The following comments are excerpts from among the first readers, including a number of Amazon five star reviews. To read the full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com or directly at https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/reader-reviews
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture, and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"
“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher, can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting yet calming experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it to other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
