Manifesting Through the Mundane
We rarely talk about the mundane. So often, we focus on these huge moments of challenge, or suffering or growth. Very rarely do we talk about our state of being in every moment, or from moment-to-moment. The time between the big moments when nothing seems to be happening, those are actually creating our reality. The mundane creates our reality.
For example, you’re reading this right now, but what are you really thinking about?
When I was a kid, I was extremely fascinated by thoughts. I loved to count to a certain number in my mind, while holding a conversation with someone else. I tried to talk about my thoughts, but no one else talked about theirs. I heard people who talk to themselves in their mind are actually crazy – a belief that is unfortunately deeply ingrained in our society – so I was taught to be scared to bring focus and awareness around mine. Depending on what exactly we’re defining here, talking to yourself can be an extremely healthy practice.
Have you ever thought about the different thoughts that you have in your mind? You could have a full conversation with yourself in your own head and still be carrying a conversation with someone else in this reality.
There are three main categories of thoughts: conscious thoughts, subconscious thoughts, and unconscious thoughts. Conscious thoughts are at the forefront of your mind, thoughts you are very aware of. Subconscious thoughts happen in the background, like running a program on a computer. Your programs are always running, even if you’re not using them. Unconscious thoughts are really deep feelings, emotions, and stirrings that we’re not even aware of; most of the time these unconscious thoughts aren’t really even thoughts at all. They’re vibrations, they’re feelings, they’re emotions, they’re not yet realized.
There’s a stream of thought that connects all three layers. Going from our conscious thoughts at the forefront of the mind we can pick up an extra layer of depth by going into the subconscious thoughts, and then diving even deeper into the unconscious thoughts, which are essentially vibrations, frequencies, and emotions not yet realized in a categorical way that can be described with language.
Now we have more than one stream of thought. Every mundane thought, every mundane feeling, every mundane action, and reaction can significantly impact not only our vibrations and emotions, but also on memories, traumas, and attachments. So, it’s not good enough to every once in a while, take full control, have full awareness, and take full ownership over our conscious thoughts. This is not a “you get more homework today,” sort of thing, it’s something to be aware of.
I’m a very clear manifester, for example, but I don’t really do the work. I’m pretty lazy. I don’t show up every day, I don’t do daily affirmations, I don’t have a shrine that I look at, a vision board – I don’t really do any of that. So, when I do show up, I show up loud. Boom, all right, universe; all right, higher self; all right, soul. I’m showing up for you, This is what I want. This is what my focus is. But that’s not what makes my or anyone’s reality. We don’t realize it’s the less dramatic or extreme thoughts, those more mundane thoughts are what create our reality the majority of the time.
On top of that, it’s not like our mind stops at a certain point in our day. If you’re like me, your mind is always going. No matter if you’re taking a walk, talking to a family member, watching TV, your mind is constantly going. So, when we start to focus on all three layers of our thoughts and rein them in, we then get to really clearly and sharply create our reality, the way that it needs to be created.
This is why I’ve been talking about our own conditions and our own beliefs within our reality. They anchor us in the physical environment we’re dealing with on a daily basis. If you’re utilizing full awareness in your conscious mind, when you show up and you ask for whatever it is you’re manifesting, it’s a very small fraction of what your every single day reality really looks like.
For example, I was recently painting, non-artistically. Just painting a wall white, really mundane. It needed five coats of white. While I’m painting, I, all of a sudden start thinking about this girl who put out a contradictory video to what I believe in, putting me down during hers. (Related side note, I really want to stop saying hater or troll because it’s very disrespectful and condescending.) I started circling or spiraling around these different thoughts about this girl and her content, feeling really misunderstood and misread.
I thought, Really, does this really annoy you? I didn’t think that this bugged you as much as it does.
These are thoughts that just enter the mind, ones you’re really not aware of most of the time. Because I was pretty bored in that moment and became consciously aware of those thoughts, I stopped what I was doing. I’m doing this mundane task, I have some space, and this is what my mind went back to.
So, I took the time in that moment to really neutralize that frequency. I checked in with myself.
Are you okay? What do you need to feel seen and heard?
It actually came down to sending this person a really nice actually message just respecting their perspective, and opinion, and appreciating their position in my reality. It was actually a very, very lovely message I ended up sending them, and I felt good about that. All of a sudden, those thoughts went away.
Now, the problem is we are so stimulated throughout our day that we very rarely are aware of what we’re thinking about.
I feel my mind is constantly stimulated. Part of me doesn’t like that.
If you look at your life and you’re like, “Every day I drink a glass of wine,” or “I’m always yearning for a romantic partner, and I never have that,” the fear in those conscious thoughts are from the subconscious need to feel balanced, which that thing provides.
Personally, I don’t want to have to rely on any habit. I want to be free of those chains and in full fluidity in every moment. That’s just me, though. To analyze my own relationship to my habits, I asked myself, Do I need stimulation?
I’ll tell you what my stimulation is. My wife is really into true crime. I’ve been very interested in the psychology behind true crime, especially cults. So, I find myself these days, constantly listening to something. Maybe it’s a YouTube video with a true crime episode. Maybe, it’s a podcast with true crime or a cult podcast. But it was always something. So I started to question that. Can I not be alone? Do I always have to be doing something or listening to something while I’m answering emails or writing up a document?”
Obviously, when I’m creating content, I’m not scrolling through my emails. That would be very difficult and I have to show up and be present. And of course, when I’m channeling, I am forced to clear my mind, let go of any and all attachment, and be present – or else I would never get access to information. So, I was worried about this. I was worried about the stimulation. During quarantine, I’ve gotten into some bad habits that I don’t really like.
But I also don’t really hate myself for doing it. It’s all just a phase. But I questioned this, the overstimulation, the need to always be listening to something, discovering something, or stimulating my mind. Through my questioning and a little bit of meditation the other week, I made this realization that mundane creates our reality.
It was a huge aha moment for me. It all relates to the thoughts, the mind creates the mundane and manifests that into your reality. When my mind is stimulated through something like a documentary, or a true crime episode, or listening to a podcast my mind is occupied (of course doing other things while I’m watching, as that’s the age we’re in), it’s like I put my manifestation energy into a place of neutrality.
When I don’t have the stimulation, my mind is extremely clear. I am very aware of my thoughts, and everything I think about is very sharp. I’m ready to go. To have a clear thought about what I want, I let go of any and all distractions, and I manifest the shit out of it, and it comes within a week, sometimes, within a couple hours, or a couple days.
Now, I don’t know if this is just spiritual bypassing at its best, but this download came to me as far as why I work. I’ve gotten to this place where I am very concentrated, so my mind isn’t subconsciously manifesting something that I am unaware of. There are things for you to do, ways for you to work, so you are harmonizing with your mind and not manifesting or holding space for all this junk.
If I’m not listening to crime stuff, I’m listening to music and EDM, almost every single hour that I’m awake. Once again, it’s a way for me to keep my unconscious and subconscious mind rooted, so my conscious mind can focus on the task at hand.
I want you to do something moving forward.
When you are doing a mundane task – where your conscious mind can switch into an autopilot mode – it could be cooking dinner, vacuuming the floor, getting stuck in traffic, answering emails, or watching TV – w – I want you to take a step back, take a step away from your current reality, and observe how your subconscious and unconscious mind function.
What are the conversations that are going on in your head? What are you thinking about? Is it that issue that happened when you were 10 years old? Was it the conversation that you had yesterday? Is it about what you’re going to make for breakfast tomorrow morning? What are those thoughts?
The clearer you are in understanding the mundane aspects of your day-to-day thoughts, the clearer you become on why your reality is the way it is. Now, take a step forward, because I don’t want to leave you there. Be aware of your thoughts. Bye-bye.
Once you’re aware the thoughts that are creating your reality are just the thoughts in between the things, then you need to ask yourself, are these thoughts serving me? For example, once I was aware my mind kept going back to this person with an alternative opinion, when I became aware that was bothering me and recognized that, I took action steps to neutralize it. I checked in with my human, What do you need, Elizabeth? Why do you feel this way? Why is this thought coming up?
Whatever the answer is, afterward ask yourself, what can you do to better support yourself? I can’t answer that for you. You have to answer that for yourself. If this isn’t serving me, then what will help? What will serve me? What will assist? How can I change this thought around or transmute the energy of this vibration?
Thank you so much for showing up for yourself. We need that more than ever these days and I really, really appreciate you. Have a beautiful rest of your day, your night, your morning.
You are exactly where you need to be.
And until next time, I will see you in the fifth dimension.
