Manifest This!


I know, I know. I’ve done this rant before. But obviously I didn’t rant thoroughly enough to get it out of my system. So here we go: Manifest Rant, the Sequel.

Manifest is a verb (used with object). It does not mean to attract like a magnet in a steel ball bearing factory. It is not a synonym for “magic trick,” where getting what you want is as easy as reaching into a magician’s top hat. And my favorite anti-definition – gleaned from an internet search: Manifesting is NOT “goosing the quantum field” to create a world in which “everything you desire is yours for the taking.”

Based on an internet search using the phrase “how to manifest,” I discovered that people are searching for ways to manifest…

  • money
  • love
  • whatever you want
  • instantly
  • anything
  • your desires
  • your dreams
  • winning the lottery

True confession: I used to use the term “manifest” in pretty much the same fashion, although I never goosed anything, quantum or otherwise.

I do believe we can create what we truly desire in life. I do believe there are forces – both seen and unseen – that can and will assist us once we are clear on what it is we truly want, once we put that energy “out there” with confidence and trust.

But I don’t believe that whatever we desire is “ours for the taking.” Ever.

So what does the verb manifest really mean? Here you go:

Manifest – verb (used with object)

1. to make clear or evident to the eye or the understanding; show plainly:
He manifested his approval with a hearty laugh.

2. to prove; put beyond doubt or question:
The evidence manifests the guilt of the defendant.

Alrighty, I feel all ranted out now. I’m going to go manifest my curiosity now, by trying to figure out just how one really goes about goosing a quantum field.

M  M is for Manifest.

  1. All we need is to use words properly. What would the world be like if that were so?

    lol … i enjoyed the manifest rant…:).. one gooses the quantum field ( although ive never heard the verb used with the noun quantum field before) by entering one’s manifest abilities into the minute fluctuating particles of quantum reality…..:)

    I’ve tried it, it only works sometimes 🙂 lol

    thanks for the smiles, Maggie.
