“You are what your deepest desire is. As is your desire, so is your intention. As is your intention, so is your will. As is your will, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny.”
What is Creative Manifestation?
We are creators and that means we are more than artists or writers. We co-create our experience through our thoughts, our words, our deeds, and our will. Everything we do is a creative act. So our choice becomes do we do this consciously or based on habit and previous programming?
Components of Manifestation
There are three key components to creative manifestation:
From a mindfulness perspective, there are two distinct types of desire. The first is the desire of a wanting mind. It is a thirst that feels it can only be satisfied by something outside of the self. In Buddhism, this would be one of the mind poisons. It is this type of desire that keeps you stuck in the cycle of birth-death- re-birth. This craving is looking to be satisfied, we partake in the desire, we feel a brief sense of satiety and then we repeat the cycle over again.
The second type of desire is the desire to do. This is our want to be connected to something bigger than ourselves. It is about bringing what is within ourselves into the outer world. There is a palpable sense of energy and inspiration about participating in a way that creates something meaningful. Desire is the driving force behind our actions so the question becomes does the wanting come from a place of lack or does it come from a place of adding meaning?
Will is a bit harder to define, but it is the power source composed of two distinct characteristics. It is emotion aka the desire coupled with conscious choice. So the desire to do added to the power of choice gives us will.
Our intention is the container for our will and desire. The ultimate ideal or the big picture of what it is we want to see come to fruition. It is a single word or phrase that unifies the desire, choice and deed.
How to Create What We Desire?
By combining all of the above components we can co-create our world. We need to understand the story around our desire. Why do we want what we want? Does it come from the desire to do or the desire to satisfy? Once we understand our story, we develop meaning. When something becomes meaningful to us i.e. we understand how it fits our worldview and value system, then we make choices in alignment with them. This is an expression of our will. If all of this is done with a unifying intention and we are consistent in the expression of our desires, will, deeds and intention – we consciously co-create our reality.

Or listen to this guided meditation on using joy and sacred geometry to activate your manifesting potential.
This meditation is part of the weekly Living Light Meditation gathering in the Chaos & Light Community. In this meditation, we use sacred geometry and joy to activate our highest creative potential. You will use the flower of life image on the screen in conjunction with the meditation, so it is best if you view it on a bigger screen. If you want to listen to the audio-only, then just imagine the flower of life in your mind’s eye when directed. (Music Credit: LATEX_music)
