Manifesting for Better Writing

by Mike Sententia on April 20, 2012

You found my old blog. Thanks for visiting! For my new writing, visit mikesententia.com.

I just finished using manifesting to write a better tagline. I ended up with something better than I think I could have written on my own. Today, I’m going to tell you how I did it.

This post has two parts. In this post, I’ll show you the command I used, and a few items that surprised me from the session. Then, for anyone who wants to try this technique themselves, I’ll post all of my notes on this manifesting.

To everyone who commented and emailed me about that first tagline post: You helped motivate me to do this manifesting, and showed me the right questions to ask. Thanks!

By the way, the tagline is the sentence at the top of the page, below “Magick of Thought.” It’s one of the first thing new readers see, so it’s pretty important.

The Technique

I connected to the ethereal software I use for manifesting by thinking about manifesting and the software’s energy signature, then sent it this command:

“Guide me as I write my tagline for my blog, to write a tagline for success in all my goals. Focus on something near-optimal that has a lot of good options near it, so even if you can’t guide me to that optimal answer, I’ll be happy with something close.”

The ethereal software connected to my mind, read my thoughts as I wrote, and gave me feedback on each possible tagline. For example:

Me: Rebooting Magick: Consciously-Directed Techniques with Unmistakeable Results.

Feedback: Good, but not great. “Consciously-directed” is too wordy. “Techniques” is good, though.

This technique requires the ability to send detailed instructions one concept at a time, and it requires your mind to be fairly well-aligned to the ethereal software’s signature (2nd half of that post) so you can accurately receive the messages. It isn’t at the absolute edge of what I can do with manifesting, but it’s by no means a basic technique.

For an easier version, you could just ask the manifesting ethereal software to give you a good feeling when you’re on the right track, and a bad feeling when you’re going astray, which should be easier to receive.

Why Not Just Ask What to Write?

I’m not good enough with manifesting to simply ask for the words I should write. In fact, I don’t think that capability is even programmed into the ethereal software, because wordsmithing has so many variables, and is so language-dependent.

More specifically, as I went through the session, it became apparent that my example sentences determine which words and ideas the ethereal software even considered. If I started with “Evidence-Based Magick,” it guided me to a whole different set of sentences than if I started with “Rebooting Magick.” This means that the manifesting didn’t figure out the best possible option, but instead helped me make something slightly better based on what I already had. Which makes sense, given the computational complexity of manifesting.

Results

I wound up with:

Rebooting Magick: Consciously Designing Techniques for Unmistakeable Results

Manifesting says it’s still not entirely optimal, but it’s well within my parameters for success. I’ll post my full notes soon. (Later today or tomorrow — they require some editing to be readable by anyone but me.)

A Faster Version

This manifesting totaled about 5 hours over 3 days. (10-15 sessions at 20-30 minutes each.) It’s probably more effort than it’s worth if you just want a better tagline, and it’s certainly impractical for everyday writing. But it was also great practice for manifesting, and I’m sure the skills will be useful later.

For something quicker, I’d write a draft, then use this technique to point out areas to delete or revise. Those areas could be at the scale of a section or a paragraph for a very early draft, or the scale of a sentence or a word for a final draft. I would specify that scale in the command I give to the ethereal software, then read the draft and receive feedback on each sentence as I go.
