Welcoming New Beliefs
Integral to welcoming the change into our lives is a method of visioning that Jessica Alstrom calls ‘research.’ Once you have a particular manifestation goal in mind, begin doing research. Immerse yourself in creating a ‘new you’ in that way. If you plan to increase your abundance, try on clothes that reflect the lifestyle that you are manifesting. No matter than you cannot currently afford them. Chose clothing to try on that reflects your desired lifestyle. Take time, enjoy looking in the mirror in the dressing room. Take photos to remind yourself later how it felt when you were wearing them. And especially, noticing exactly how you feel is key to manifesting our desires. We can look in the mirror and think about how nice we look, but if we don’t pay attention to the good feelings that accompany them, this method of research doesn’t do much good.
In like manner, make every effort to explore all things related to your desired manifestation. Immerse yourself in research, learning everything you can and always noting your feelings as you do so. Train your mind and heart in what you aspire but keep in mind that as you do so, it is essential that you believe that it is present right now. As you are clearing your space, both external and internal, this step is important to welcome in that which you truly want.
