Emergency Manifesting: Using Law of Attraction When There’s No Time to Fool Around

By Jeannette Maw

Rent’s due but the bank account is empty. Your boss just gave your third written warning for a job you can’t afford to lose. Your beloved sweetie eloped with your best friend. The doctor confirmed the diagnosis you feared most.

Sooner or later it seems like life gets the best of us. What to do when all seems lost?

If you know how law of attraction works, you know that you get what you vibrate. Your vibration is based on your thoughts, since thoughts drive feelings and feelings are what comprises your vibration.

So if it feels like the stuff has hit the fan and you need to do some emergency manifesting, here are three simple steps to remember:

1) What do I want?

2) What does that feel like?

3) What feels good to do next?

When we’re caught in the loop of things gone wrong it’s all too easy to forget about our vibration and lose sight of our desired end result. Rather, our attention is quite naturally focused on exactly what we don’t want, like a “deer in the headlights” effect.

Remember you are in charge of what plays out next. You can effect change. I repeat: you can effect change! And that is NOT best done by leaping into action with the same vibration that escorted you into the problem.

Instead, first shift your energy (i.e. vibration), and then take action that feels good. (Which may not be at all what you would have guessed. Be open.)

Let’s look at the three steps for emergency manifesting in more detail:

What do I want?

When things go wrong, it’s easy to get stuck looking at what you don’t want. So although this seems like a “no brainer” of a first step, it’s a crucial one. Take your attention off what you don’t want. Redirect your focus away from “reality,” or what you fear might become reality. Put the spotlight of your mind on the results you desire; on the outcome you’d love to see unfold. On what you want. Simple, and important.

What does that feel like?

With the results that you want firmly in mind, now pay attention to what that feels like. What does it feel like to know your healing is on its way? What does it feel like to know you’re appreciated and valued at work; that your sweetie truly loves you? What does it feel like to know all is well?

Hang out here. Spend time with this vibration! Because it is exactly this vibration that allows “reality” to turn the corner and start going your way. This is where miracles can enter your life; when you vibrate in a way that allows them in. So FEEL what it feels like to have what you want.

What feels good to do next?

Now that you’re vibrating what you want, you have access to information that can help. From this place (of feeling what it feels like to have what you want), ask yourself the question: “What feels good to do next?”

Trust your inner guidance for that answer, friend. Don’t let your analytical mind hijack you to an automatic response that isn’t authentically yours. No one can tell you this action step better than you. The world is full of advice, but none of it will serve you if it’s not in alignment with what feels good to you.

Here are some examples of what others in one of life’s pinches came up with when they took time to shift the vibe and ask inner guidance what felt good:

  • Donna wrote a letter to her real estate employer, explaining her situation and asking if she could have full commissions paid until she got back on her feet.
  • Reid called an old friend to talk about what happened with his girlfriend, and gained valuable insight about his role in what transpired.
  • Tyler took time off work to better relax and explore healing options, which led him to new treatment solutions right in his own neighborhood.
  • Shawna realized her boss was doing was her a favor to give her the impetus to find work that was more in alignment with her true self. She gave notice, was paid out unused vacation, and drew off the retirement account she now had access to.

As long as we’re stuck in the vibration of the problem, we are not allowing the solution to unfold. Shift your energy and get creative by listening to your inner knowing about what will serve you best. The Universe is conspiring on your behalf, and the system is set up for your success.

If you’re not experiencing an emergency right now, congratulations! Clean up your vibe so you’re not aligned to anything you don’t want in the future. Remember you’re in charge of your world. When you focus your mind with intention and align your energy with what you want, you are an unstoppable power!
