Monthly Manifestation Manual

As long as I can remember, I wanted to create my own stationery company. I fetishized office supplies, Hello Kitty, Lisa Frank, and trapper keepers. Infatuated with the privacy of a diary, the smell of colored pencils, and the magic of graph paper, I always kept a Moleskine for notes and doodles.

After I learned about The Secret and Abraham-Hicks (those law of attraction folks), I became intrigued by the games Abraham suggested people play to raise their vibration and feel better. These processes got me excited, not only because they work, but because I immediately started seeing how I could design my own.

 

Gathering Momentum

I condensed a lot of what I learned from Abraham and other teachers into my first worksheet, Gathering Momentum. With spaces for gratitude, excitement, love, and intentions, Gathering Momentum was my first attempt at a positive thinking exercise.

That was four years ago! Since then, Kelly and I designed dozens of positive thinking worksheets for SchoolOfLifeDesign.com, our online store and resource center. Friends began downloading the worksheets and filling them out. We sold them to people all over the world. Over time, the quantity and diversity of exercises became overwhelming. Our friend Tracy asked us, “Which worksheet should I do when, and how often, and in what order?”

Thus the Monthly Manifestation Manual was born.

Using the flower of life grid as a template, we redrew and reimagined every worksheet on SchoolOfLifeDesign.com.

We wanted the book to be as Moleskinesque as possible, so we chose a hardcover journal to house our creation. Inside the book, the structure is simple: there is a daily page for each day of the month, and between each daily page is an individual exercise to help raise your vibration and enjoy your contrast. The daily pages aren't labeled with dates, so the book will last as long as you want. You can fill it out every day or once a week—it's up to you.

We launched the first edition of MMM at our Rave Cave art show on January 10th. It was a huge success and we soon had to order the second edition. Friends started asking us to vend our merchandise at electronic music shows in downtown Austin, TX, and it’s been thrilling to hand over copies of my life’s work to someone new.

I’ve been filling out my own Monthly Manifestation Manual nearly every day, and yesterday I finished my first copy. Magick and hilarity assuredly ensued.

 

MMM Daily Page

Every day there is a space for a “To Do Not Give A Fuck About” list, which is meant to replace a traditional to-do list. Every day, I write down my big to-dos or things that are stressing me out. And as I’ve gone back and reflected on each entry, I’ve found that every single item has worked itself out, without my involvement.

Using the Monthly Manifestation Manual to focus my attention nearly every morning has changed my life. Each day I fill it out, I am reminded of all the good in life. I remember that I am the creator of my reality. I remember that I get to choose how I feel. I remember that I have to become it to see it. I remember that life is truly magickal and I can trust the process of life. I remember that I get to choose my perspective.

Keeping an MMM also helps me remember my dreams (there’s a space each day to record them), reminds me to set intentions for the day, and most of all, it helps me appreciate all that I already have in life. Even my problems are a blessing, because they are helping me discern what I want in life.

Each day I fill out a page in the MMM, something magickal happens. My wish comes true, or a problem solves itself, or I start feeling good for no reason. This book is powerful. It reminds me that I am a divine being—with powers beyond my understanding—who is finding more to appreciate about life one page at a time.

Advanced Life Design Lesson 2: Welcome to Fifth Density

 2012 May 5
by jessica mullen   6 Comments 

Art by Kelly Cree

You may have noticed things are changing. You are aware of your thoughts. You are aware of your hand in this. You are aware that your thoughts create.

It was scary at first, getting over the guilt and fear of looking conceited or powerful or delusional. But thanks to the experiences shared on the Internet, it has become common knowledge that feeling good feels good and leads to good things. As a society, we've collectively begun to understand that the meaning of life has a lot more to do with having fun than making money or repenting for sins.

Congratulations my friend! We have made it to the next level of life experience. We are aware. We have woken up from the trance of being mind-identified. We have stepped into our role as conscious creators, with a permanent hotline to infinite intelligence.

Art by Kelly Cree

Some call this transition period entering the "fifth density", which is a vibrational frequency of consciousness. In this density, we operate from the standpoint of unconditional love and unity with all-that-is. We can zoom out and see a bigger picture of life. The fifth density is where we become aware of our own vibration and our creative power. In fifth density, you exist in flow, or in sync with the universal rhythm or pulse of life. Learning to live in flow marks the transition from fourth to fifth density.

Divine inspiration. Knowing. Confidence. Tripping. Thought-free focus. Letting life live you. Walking the tightrope, trusting the big picture of life to care for you. By choosing to tune ourselves and our moods into the vibration of unconditional love, we access an awareness of flow. Access to the fifth density depends on your mood. Are you in the mood for love?

There is nothing weird or scary about this transition. It's what we have been collectively striving for. We are entering a period of joy, of fun, of play, and of unconditional love. You don't have to do anything to be part of the process. You only have to choose it. However, below are a few general principles that may ease that head-exploding feeling of "holy shit, life is deep."

Art by Kelly Cree

5 Useful Rules to Live by in the Fifth Density

1. Listen for the flow.
To live in flow, your mind must be quiet enough to hear it. As you make your decisions throughout the day, ask yourself if the choice is a "fuck yeah". If you have to think about it, it's not. You can always feel the right decision, which the flow provides, because it will feel good and you will have zero doubt.

2. Up your tolerance for feeling good.
There's nothing to be embarrassed about feeling good. Everyone gets it. Stay conscious and aware of your mood and thoughts, listen to your body and the indicators in your reality. Find your balance. Keep your cool. Life is like a 360º tightrope. If you were on a tightrope, would you give your attention to what you're giving it to currently? Choose what you focus on. Choose to ignore everything you don't want. Let the negative go. Your awareness creates it. What you resist, persists.

Notice particularly when you start reaching your upper limits of feeling good. In The Big Leap, Gay Hendricks explains there are four ways in which we prevent ourselves from reaching our ideal conscious state: feeling fundamentally flawed (how could someone as imperfect as me achieve unconditional love?), feeling disloyal to our roots (how could I choose success without abandoning those who made me who I am?), feeling like a burden (if I reach my highest potential, I'll be an even bigger burden than I am now), or fear of outshining (how can I allow my perfection when it might make those around me feel bad?). If you start feeling bad, ask yourself if something really good just happened. If so, you're upper-limiting yourself.

You don't have to perfect your mood in one day. You don't have to clean up all your thoughts at once. It's an iterative process that happens with each new thought. Just practice observing your thoughts and watch as the light of your consciousness evaporates the illusion of darkness. In fifth density, your mood is your only work. Do the work. Feel the feeling you want to feel right now, and you have instant access to the vibration where your manifestation resides. It feels almost like shapeshifting, or teleporting.

3. Up your tolerance to other people feeling good.
If you want to live at a higher vibration, you have to be ok with the people around you being on your level. Choose to appreciate the success of the people around you, instead of fearing their success will give you less access to them. You can only perceive their success because you are projecting success.

4. Focus on the feeling of what you really want.
Being able to desire and then manifest anything you want is part of the fun of this density. If you know exactly what you want, you don't have to think about your desire anymore, because the moment you had the desire, it was created. You don't water your seed by thinking about it every day, you do it by paying attention to your mood. It will come when you feel as good as you would if you had received the manifestation. Basically, it will come when you don't care about it anymore, because you found another way to feel good.

The only thing you can actively do to manifest your desire is to focus your energy on feeling good, regardless of whether you receive what you want or not. Tell yourself you have it, and live as if you do. You must become it before you see it. You must believe that it already is, and when you look for it, you'll see everything already is reflecting that truth.

5. Practice feeling good even though you don't have everything you want.
Feel good anyway. Act as if. Distract yourself from thoughts that keep you away from what you want. By saying "I want" you are vibrating "I don't have." Instead, say "I am." There are infinite ways to feel good right now, without ever receiving that which you perceive to be lacking. You can exercise, meditate, do mood-boosting worksheets, read Tuesday Tips, or play with flow toys. But the easiest, fastest, and most reliable method for feeling good right now is your breath.

Our breath connects us to each other, to the world, and to the flow of life. Focusing on one's breath is an instant connection to source energy and can be used at any time to stop thought and feel good. To practice conscious breathing, you can join others in the DoAsOne.org universal breathing room online (thanks Katharine!), or download the Prana Yama breathing app. For fantastic instructions on breath and meditation, read The Practice (thanks Sunny!).

Breath is the holy grail of feeling good. It's the tool that will always work. It's the secret ingredient we all have instant, easy access to.

Join in World Liberation Day!

At 10:30pm central time tonight, at the time of the biggest full moon of 2012, we're all going to meditate for an hour, visualizing the world we want to live in. (See here for your timezone and more detailed instructions).

If you're in the flow, you have the power that creates worlds in your hands. Life design is consciously directing that flow to create whatever you want. What happens is your decision. Do you want world peace? Do you want alien contact? Do you want all debts canceled? Do you want eternal life? Do you want to fly? What happens next for the world is up to you, and everyone gets to choose the version they want to live.

And y'all? Just remember this is all just for fun. None of this serious, and none of it matters. Enjoy the ride! I love you, and you're doing great.

Advanced Life Design: a Bigger Picture

 2011 March 8

fractal
thank you craft_uas!

If you've come across this site because you're interested in The School of Life Design, hooray! It's time to talk.

The first eight lessons in the school are integral to learning how to create your own belief system and start living the life of your dreams. But what comes next? What happens after you learn about life design, start lifestreaming, practicing feeling good, loving yourself, and letting go of negative thought? Is that all there is to learn?

Hell no! How boring would that be? That's why I am introducing the first lesson of Advanced Life Design (ALD) right here, right now! Lessons in ALD are for everyone, but they assume you've got your basics covered:

  • you love yourself
  • you practice directing your thoughts by focusing on what you want (often using a website)
  • you spend most of your time feeling good.

If you're just tuning in...

Welcome to the leading edge of consciousness expansion on the Internet! Here's what's been up with jessicamullen.com the past year: I discovered the law of attraction and power of feeling good last spring, right after running a marathon and receiving my MFA in Design at the University of Texas. I immediately began practicing positive thinking and carried the practice onto my lifestream. The two combined into a beautiful love child, The School of Life Design.

The School
The School of Life Design teaches that life is supposed to be fun, and that keeping a lifestream website is a way to focus your brilliant creative energy on enjoying life. Having a website about your life is essentially an exercise in having fun.

Now what? There must be more to life than just enjoying it. Life is a lot deeper, right?

The worksheets
Well before we can go any deeper, we better practice feeling good. A lot. Every single day. Every moment we can. I have some worksheets (and work books!) to help us practice feeling good and loving ourselves, because for the advanced course we're going to want the beefiest feeling-good muscles on the block!

The book
While we practice, let's manifest ourselves some money to fund our adventures into uncharted waters. Get a Website, Get Happy, Get Paid teaches you how to set up the infrastructure of your business of being.

The forum
Next you can join the rainbow brite club! Haha jk, but it is where all the coolest life designers hang out. The School of Life Design Forum is to help with specific questions about your unique situation - whether it has to do with your website or the meaning of life in general.

A membership to the forum buys you the best lifestreaming advice on the web along with a place to ask questions, receive site critiques, and teach and learn from other life designers. It's like going to school for a web design and positive psychology degree at your own pace.

If life genuinely is just a (really long) trip, consider the forum to be your trip guide minus the drugs. What did you come here to accomplish? Come play in the forum with other people asking the same questions!

So what comes next? How do we find more meaning in life after learning the essentials? Here's my view.

Advanced Life Design: a bigger picture

working reality model
This is what you've been training for. This is the next level. Welcome.

This lesson is a primer of concepts in Advanced Life Design. ALD is about accessing your power as a physical and vibrational creator, evolving your consciousness, accepting your inherent worthiness, and releasing all fear. If you're able to read this, HIGH FIVE for being a vibrational match to this information!

Now you understand that when something bad happens, it's actually good - it indicates change, the universe aligning to bring you what you actually want. You see setbacks as fun challenges, gorgeous puzzles gifted from the universe for you to watch unfold.

No matter what happens it's the perfect solution. Well being flows and is everything. Only your own choices of thoughts and perception would ever lead you astray. And then you realize there really isn't ever any "astray". Everything is good and it's only a matter of time before the good is revealed. The more you believe that, the more good you can perceive in each moment.

Here's what's actually up with reality: it moves in a flow. And when you're synced up with it, you have the most creative power you could ever imagine. Anything you want will materialize in front of your eyes, once you learn how to use your power.

You have to practice to get any good at using your power. There are different ways to "tune in tap in turn on", which is what you need to practice doing to access this colorful world of magick and fun.

Two paths to embracing your power as a physical and vibrational creator

#1: Practice controlling your thoughts and emotions:

  • Practice feeling good any way you can, all day every day. Feeling good is how you experience differentiation from the whole. Be you. The preferences you have developed through life experience are what tell you what feels good. Follow your unique preferences and you will always feel good. For example, if you prefer to create by writing, do that. Whatever feels like what you want is the direction you should go in. That's how we all feel we have value - in our uniqueness. That is the beauty of physical reality - our individual perspectives are all so unique.
  • Practice letting go. All you really need to move onto Advanced Life Design is to trust that the universe will take care of you. Believe in the big picture. Anything you want, all you have to do is have a strong desire and then stop thinking about the desire so you can stop projecting a vibration of lack. When you let go of your strong desires (by creating new ones!), the universe will bring them to your doorstep.

#2: Practice losing your ego and increasing your awareness of your oneness with the universe:

  • with exercise. Lots of it, every day, for multiple hours a day. Training your physical body to do what it knows how to do without negative thought interference from you teaches you that you are not your body. Vigorous, regular exercise eliminates ego-the sense that you are separate from that which you came.
  • by playing or flowing any way you can, as much as you can. Practicing being in a flow state creates more awareness of the whole. You are not separate from anything in your reality. And when you know you're not separate from anything, you can follow the divine pulse of life - which is how you flow in sports or dance or other movement activities. Group fitness classes, team sports, and choreographed movements performed with other people are a great way to get in the spirit.
  • by tripping and meditating. Entheogens remove your mental obstructions (ingrained thought patterns) to your power and visually show you the flow of reality. They teach that you are not your body by producing a feeling of disassociation from ego. Meditation induces a similar state. In an interview with the author of Psychedelic Information Theory, James Kent describes the increasing perceived value of psychedelics:

    Look at the modern popularization of yoga and meditation as an example. A hundred years ago these practices were considered esoteric and the realm of monks and orientalists, but now they are commonplace fitness routines for suburban housewives. I would wager that fringe practices of psychedelic drug use and neurofeedback stimulators will be as commonplace a hundred years from now as yoga and meditation are today.

Playing Astrojax is my favorite way to practice awareness of the whole on a daily basis. You might like poi, hooping, or other flow toys. What exactly is flow you ask? Flow is a state of moving effortlessly, of trusting your body to know what to do, of letting creativity pour out of you naturally without any negative thoughts or barriers to joy. It's the feeling of your skills perfectly matching the challenge. Flow is what any athlete, musician, artist, performer or other type of creative genius feels. It's the feeling of trusting your inspiration to guide you towards the next logical step.


Playing Astrojax at the YMCA to "Bass Head" by Bassnectar 3.7.11
Astrojax show you what the flow of life looks like, almost like tripping does. They illustrate your thoughts creating reality. They show your body the movement of the flow of the universe. They talk to you. They are a physical bridge between physical reality and dimensions beyond. If you're impatient to see the connection being illustrated, skip to about 00:53 in the video above.

That's what flow looks like. That's what entheogens give you visual access to. That's what stopping negative thought is all about. It's letting life live you. Allowing the universe to bring you everything you want, because you trust it will.

When you practice feeling good every day, it's like training your muscles to improve your ability at a sport. From my experience, the more time you spend embracing your power, the closer you get to playing in a real game. You can train without ever getting in the game, but imagine how fun it must be to play!

In life design, you practice feeling good to improve your abilities at the game. A positive vibration of feeling good is a muscle, just like your bicep. When you practice using your feeling good muscles, you get better at it. You get stronger, more powerful results.

So what are you training for, anyway? What's the game we're playing?

Consciousness evolution

As life designers, we are helping our mass consciousness upgrade to higher levels of functioning. We are unique cogs in the wheel of this big picture, but we are also in complete creative control. We're going through the exact motions we need to be for everything to unfold perfectly. We are bridges, just like Astrojax is a bridge. We take what we learn from various states of consciousness and tell people what we learn there. We are consciousness pioneers. Everything that has ever happened, ever, has lead up to this moment. We are literally the very edge of universal expansion.

As consciousness pioneers, we understand that there is more to life than physical reality, because we've been there individually. We can go there together too, as a society. Then physical reality would be much different. But we can't level up as a whole until everyone learns the power of their thoughts. We can't reach a new plane in consciousness unless we all evolve. We evolve by learning our power, practicing it, and becoming one with love. We evolve by finding the natural flow of life and moving with it. We evolve by having open minds and hearts.

What is so cool is that the more and more people upgrade their consciousness, the easier it is for everyone else to catch on. And this whole Internet thing is what's making it spread like wildfire. The Internet gave us planetary consciousness. It gave us literal awareness of our whole, just like the Mass Games or a group fitness class does. The Internet passes the meme much more quickly than the printing press or oral tradition ever could.

I went to grad school and studied things like the technological singularity and the benefits of lifestreaming. That singularity thing? It's coming up, like, today. Take a look at this calendar of events approaching, and tell me it doesn't make your heart jump with the smallest bit of excitement.

You have always been worthy

abundance
thank you Beverly & Pack

Do you deserve vast abundance in your life? Are you worthy of receiving the wealth and security you crave? Are you ready for everything you want to shower down upon you?

Whether you think you're worthy or not, the answers are still the same. Every single one of us is worthy of the universe's blessings. If we are all one consciousness, of course every part of the one would have value - the same value as the whole. All of the universe. Every single one of us is worth as much as everything in the entire universe.

Abraham-Hicks explains in their new Getting into the Vortex Meditation book that once you release more and more of your resistance to feeling good,

You will stand in complete acceptance of your value, offering no resistance whatsoever to the evidence of your value. You will feel no discomfort as the blessings of abundance and Well-Being shower down around you, indicating your alignment with the worthy Being that you are. - p53

Accept that you are worthy. You are perfect and unique and you deserve the abundance the universe has to offer. You are simply an individual sensing node on a bigger whole. We are all one. And if we are all one, our value is all exactly the same - the value of the whole. You are worthy of the universe. You are worthy of anything you can dream up. You are worthy of all the time, health, love and money in the universe. Because you are the universe.

You never have to feel guilty about wanting things ever again. Know that your desires are what keep you alive. This is the last thing you will ever need to read telling you to love yourself. There, you're enlightened.

You are now fearless

There is nothing to fear. In the next few months, things are going to get really crazy in this reality. Did you look at that forum thread yet? I just want to let y'all know that there is nothing to be afraid of, and that whatever beautiful things start unfolding in your life, just remember that you created them and you are in control. You have the power.

There is nothing to be afraid of. When you find yourself leading an incredible life because you are working with the law of attraction, not against it, remember that you wanted to go down this rabbit hole. You truly are a powerful creator and learning to master your emotions is only a step in consciousness evolution.

Once you can comprehend the idea that your thoughts create, and start living by that law, then what? That's the evolution, what happens next. I can't predict the future but I can promise you it is unfolding perfectly. Love is all there is.

Even if it doesn't all make sense yet, but you know that feeling good feels good, trust that you'll figure it out eventually. Just keep asking questions. Keep looking for the answers. They're all right in front of you. Keep feeling better and better and you'll gradually find more and more of them.
