The devil is in the details.
You have probably heard the phrase the devil is in the details. Most of the time when we use this phrase we mean that we may need to pay more attention to the details. Sometimes we mean that we think someone has missed planning some certain details. But that’s not what I mean here at all. I am talking about one of the biggest blocks people experience in working on manifestations.
When we have big dreams and big goals that we are working on bringing into reality, the details can get in our way. When we are manifesting, our focus needs to be on the big picture. What is our final goal? Have you figured out what you want your final outcome to look like? Sometimes people call asking for help on a dream a prayer. It is also asking for a manifestation. Our manifestations will come into form much more quickly if we’re focusing on our end point, the final score or the big picture.
When we focus on the details of our manifestations or dreams we can either slow them down. Sometimes be focusing on the details, you can actually limit them or stop the manifestation altogether. We are giving universe a script when we focus on the details. When we give the universe an outline our focus is on the minutiae and by doing this, we are really limiting the possibilities The Creator has in store for us. Don’t get worked up over the name of your higher power. Use whatever makes you comfortable to call your higher power; God, Source, The Creator or The Universe. No matter your name, your higher power wants the best for you. In fact, your higher power wants even better than you can imagine! If you get stuck in the details of your dreams or manifestations, The universe, God, source, can’t work as freely.
One easy thing to focus on for manifestation
As you manifest, focus on the big picture and leave the specific details alone. Don’t worry about what author and speaker Mike Dooley calls the “cursed how’s”. Leave those how’s to the universe. You don’t have to worry about *how* something will come to be. That is when focusing on the details can cause a lot of trouble. That’s where we find the devil in the details, when you are trying to control them!
Your job is to let go of *how* what you were dreaming about will come into reality. Let go of what your dream lover looks like or what he/she does for a living. Let go of the perfect job at a specific place in a specific company.
Instead, of focusing on the details, you might consider making a list of the things you really want from your big picture. For example, list all of the attributes you want in the perfect job, the perfect man, the perfect house, the perfect car, the perfect family, etc. Then step back and let the universe deliver. Doreen Virtue tells us that one of the best and most fun ways to do this is to make your list and end it with “this or something better”.
When you are manifesting or prayers, it is important to keep in mind that you cannot manifest someone specific to do or be something specific. For example, you won’t be manifest a particular person will decide to hire you for your perfect job. That person is also enjoying their free will choices. But you CAN list what you want your ideal job to include and put that on your vision board. Do you see what I mean?
