Now that we have covered how energy works, you might ask what energy has to do with anything. The answer is that you can maneuver, if you will, energy to work in your favor. By being intentional about your field of energy, you can manipulate it to your advantage.
When does manipulation of energy backfire? Well, there are plenty of circumstances. When it comes to manifesting wrongfully, you need to be careful of the underlying subconscious thought behind the manifestation technique.
If you go around acting positive, repeating positive affirmation mantras every morning and smiling broadly, but do not truly believe you have this power, then manifesting will backfire.
You are basically validating the proof that “this doesn’t work – see, I told you so.” What you think, you become, and what you think will show up in your life. Wrongful manifestation can backfire in this situation. If you don’t start at the subconscious level, your manifestation efforts will fail.
If you’ve ever had a wrongful manifestation, don’t worry, because you are certainly not alone. You must start at the root level. Your subconscious mind runs the show. Once you truly understand this, you get that you have the power to either manifest with powerful results or to manifest wrongfully.
Pick an area in your life where you are not at all satisfied. Let’s use relationships, for example. Are you in a relationship where you are not treated well enough? You may not realize this, but if you believe in your subconscious that you are not good enough, then this is what will show up in your life. This is a perfect example of wrongful manifestations. You certainly do not want to be treated as though you are not good enough; however, if your underlying subconscious belief is one of not good enough or even second-best, this is what will (wrongfully) manifest into your life.
Another example is in the workplace. Do you believe that everybody gets a raise and everybody else gets praise or even a promotion while you sit there and go unnoticed? You could have an underlying story about how everyone else has it better – a “woe is me” type of underlying belief. This, again, is a perfect example of how you can unconsciously have an underlying belief that works against you instead of for you. It all begins at a subconscious level.
