About a month ago, Christine took a weekend program in reflexology. She had been waiting to take this course for months, which was originally supposed to happen in April, but it kept getting delayed.
Finishing that course gave her the certification she needed to practice reflexology in the state of Pennsylvania. Obviously, she was super excited to complete the course and get that piece of paper.
But that very same day, she was worrying about how she was going to find clients, whether she should try to find a place to work for or set up her own practice, etc. All perfectly understandable concerns, of course.
But I told her, “Just take a day or two to enjoy having arrived at your goal.”
As I mentioned, this was a goal she had waited for for months. Now, she had arrived. It was over. But, she was already jumping ahead to the next step.
But I believe in the importance of completion: acknowledging when you’ve arrived at your goal, and enjoying that sense of finality and accomplishment.
I’m often the same way though, but it’s something I consciously try to work on.
When I’m working on manifesting a goal, and it finally manifests in the physical, it is tempting to jump ahead to the very next goal, without ever stopping to acknowledge my progress.
But I believe this is dangerous. Your will is so potent because of the tension it places upon reality.
But if you never let up on that tension — if you just jump from one goal to another to another — you can suffer a sort of fatigue of the will.
It’s like if you constantly exercise a certain muscle. If you exercise that same muscle group day after day after day, there comes a time when you experience diminishing returns, or even start to damage that muscle because you’re overworking it.
Manifestation is about tension, then release. Tension is created by the difference between your vision and your current reality. The release comes when reality changes to conform to your vision.
But if you don’t allow the release to happen, then your will may actually become weaker over time. We’re not meant to live in a constant state of tension, after all.
It’s good to desire, but it’s equally good to enjoy the fruits of your creation. Be grateful for what you have accomplished. This is literally an act of magick: you have brought into being something that did not previously exist, solely using your will. That is to be celebrated.
And the more you acknowledge your accomplishments and enjoy completing your goals, the more positive reinforcement you will have to repeat it again later. Arriving at the destination feels good, and we’re programmed to seek out that which feels good.
Plus, every time you complete a cycle of tension and release, just like the muscle you exercise and then allow to rest, your will gets that much stronger. Creation becomes that much easier to you.
You may be surprised at this, as this is a concept rarely if ever discussed by most LOA teachers. But I believe the science of the will is the most important thing to master if we hope to become powerful creators and gods of our reality.
As such I’m holding a brand new masterclass this weekend to teach you everything I have discovered about the will. While some material may be familiar to you, much of it is material I’ve literally never discussed before in any setting.
The class is called, What Does It Mean to Will?, and you only have 2 more days to sign up for it.
