Manifestation is the act of bringing into being what we think about, focus on and align with emotionally. To consciously create means that we manifest what we want to achieve and receive in life from our highest awareness. As young children we are much more aligned with this ability but as we get older, we forget our power and we focus more on the reality we have created from our habitual perceptions and conditioned understanding of life than on the possibilities that are on offer to us that we access when we move beyond the limiting beliefs that tells us that what we dream of and wish for is impossible, unsafe for us or requires hard work, struggle and sacrifice.
It is when we remember who we really are that we create well. It is when we move beyond our unconsciously created personal reality that we manifest miracles. Beyond unhelpful conditioned thinking and a focus on what is known to the limited mind, we are enter a state of consciousness that is the creative energy of life, absolute awareness of our truth and beauty, our ability to bring into being all that we wish to from the space of wholeness and wellbeing. We are worthy and we create well when we know this, when we connect with and operate from our truth and understand that realisation of our innate worth and deservedness is our gateway to accessing the mystical, the magical, to harnessing the creative power of life.
To manifest, we set an intention, we visualise it as having already happened, we create the emotional experience within us of having received it and we operate from it, guided in how we think and feel, allowing this state of being to inform how we live and create and respond to life in every moment. In doing so, we become the people we envision having what we desire and we raise the frequency of our vibration to match that experience and draw what we want to us. If we make this an act of play and allow it to be simple without spending time on how and when what we want will be received, we allow ourselves to imagine into being an experience and expression of self that trusts in our power to create and the power of the life to handle the logistics for us. We send out messages of desire, we radiate our intent and match the vibration of the having in our doing. We do not wait to get what we want to become the people we wish to be, we get what we want because we discover that we can be the people we wish to be now and surrender outcomes to a higher power.
We all want to feel well, balanced, harmonious and until we realise that these feelings come from within us, we look to the world outside of us to makes us feel what we wish to which often leads to disappointment as well as feelings of powerlessness.
When we are not aligned with our wellbeing, aware of our ability to decide how we feel, guided by our desire to express our wholeness, we often feel as if our needs are not met and are left believing that we are let down by life, lacking in some way, unsupported. When we begin to understand that within we are whole and well, spiritually perfect, able to manifest an experience of worth and fullness, we start to live in a way that is guided by and supports our wellbeing. As we do, we find that the act of conscious creation or manifestation allows us to use our creative power to bring into being and open up to opportunities for us to engage and express our inner truth, health and happiness.
To set your intention, identify why you want what you do which is usually a case of discovering what it is you want to feel and feel it now. Because these feelings come from within you and are available to you always, no matter what is going on outside of you. You are perfectly capable of having everything you desire and feeling miserable. You choose what you think and feel in response to life so choose now to feel how you imagine you will when you have what you want and become the person who feels this way. When you are creating and connecting with and energising feelings of abundance, health, love, you act as a magnet for abundance, health and love, attracting what you are and calling towards you more of what you are already experiencing. Life will give you many opportunities to reset your behaviour so that this attitude becomes your default setting.
Next, communicate clearly to the Universe what you want and trust that it will manifest in the way that is best for you. Allow yourself to feel supported as you take steps towards achieving and creating what you desire. Believe in the possibility of it coming into being and take action from this belief. You trust in your health whilst doing your best to make choices that support and maintain and increase health. Likewise, trust in your ability to co create with the Universe to bring into being what you wish to experience whilst making choices that support and maintain and increase your connection with the creative energy of life and the likelihood of getting what you wish for. Give up ideas about worth and deservedness that question or challenge your right to receive. Suffering is not a prerequisite for healing and evolution. Whilst we can reframe our experiences in any way that works for and resonates with us, we do not have to suffer to grow. This model of thinking is based on an old paradigm that we pay our dues here on Earth in order to be granted access into heaven. We do grow through what we go through when we see that we have the faculties to and yet, still, we are able to realise and connect with a higher expression of self without suffering, just by waking up in the moment to who we really are which can happen to any of us at any time.
Children can manifest more easily because they know how to play and engage and operate from their imaginative power and are more free flowing, more present, more engaged and connected in the moment. Everything we give our energy to requires focus, time and attention and being aware of this can help us to utilise it more joyfully. Conscious creation is the act of reawakening these abilities so that we decide what we want, act as if we already have it and in feeling blessed and loved and supported and expanded by our good fortune, act as the people who have already received it. Ask yourself who you think you will become by having or achieving what you’ve asked for. What difference will there be in the way you think and act and behave? This person who has what they want and lives in a way that recognises their ability to create and receive it is already within you. Start living as this person now. What choices does this future you make from the moment they wake up until the time they go to bed at night? How does this future you relate and respond to others? How clear minded and effective is this future self? How does this future you think and feel as they go about their day?
Take action from the person you’ll be when you have what you want. Live this life now. Live from the feeling of your new self. Operate as this person today and practise your new approach to life in every moment. Manifestation is active and not passive and yet trust enables surrender so that you do the work to be the person you imagine enjoying what you have asked for, take action to open up to new opportunities and possibilities and then release your vision and allow the Universe to deliver what you desire in the way that is right for you without attempting to control what or how it is delivered. If you think you know what your delivered desire will look like or how the receiving of it will unfold, you might miss it when it arrives. You have set your intention. You are taking action to think and feel and operate as the person you believe receiving your request will make you and you are evolving to become this person now. Do what you can and leave the rest to the Divine. Trying to micromanage God’s work will see you neglecting your own.
Do not try to force an outcome. What happens when you force a lock? It breaks or jams. You do not need to break down doors that are not open to you. Widen your vision, open up your focus. Notice the path that is welcoming you and the doors that are standing wide open. Walk alongside the energy of life towards your dreams. Let its intelligence guide you, its love inspire you and its limitless abundance provide for you as you uncover who you really are, live from the awareness of who you want to become and feel the feelings of joy, peace, love and gratitude that arise when you realise your connection with the loving intelligence of life and work with the power of creation to manifest all that you desire, surrendering to the true self that actualises your limitless potential.
You have the right to be happy and joyful and supported and loved because you are all that you seek and ask for from your highest awareness. Get clear on this, embrace it as truth, uncover the wisdom within you that knows who you really are and the limitless abundance you are worthy of creating, receiving and experiencing. Become aware of the thoughts you don’t believe in when you are aligned with the truth and knowledge of your magnificence but continue to repeat and energise anyway. Notice the ideas you invest in and continue to cultivate from the limited mind that hold you back. Pause every time you get caught up with thoughts about being realistic or that judge your dreams and aspirations and desires as wrong somehow. Release your hold on fearful thoughts about risk and safety.
Realise your worthiness. You are a child of God, life, love, source, light. You are Divinity in action, creating as, from and alongside an energy that you are of, that you are lived by and that is you. There is no less than or undeserving.
You are safe within. You were born with spiritual wisdom, strength, resilience and immunity. Tuning in to your truth will only lead to the expression of your highest good. Start to play in life again, bring your most brilliant dreams to life in your mind and feel the fun and lightness and creativity and joy this affords you. Rest in the awareness of your wellbeing. Understand that you are safe and whole within. Be the peace that you are. Notice how your thinking creates your feelings and read them as a guide to the helpfulness of your thinking in the moment. Engage with truth and let everything else pass by.
When we realise that we are the creators of our reality and we embrace this, we begin to notice and look for ways to express our innate desire to celebrate life. We encourage our natural good feeling without waiting for anything or anyone else to do it for us which empowers us and puts us in control of our experience and we find that the more good feeling we generate, the more wonderful our lives become. And when we default to past habits of being that do not create a healthy feeling experience, we treat ourselves kindly, allowing our feelings to arise, letting them go or exploring them safely from the clarity that innate peace of mind affords us as we affirm our truth, remember our potential and engage in visualising and energising an experience of an ever more healthy feeling expression of self.
It is judgement of our feelings that causes tension as well judgement of ourselves for having them and judgement of others who we might believe to be the cause of them. Love is whole wellbeing, total connection and harmony and peace. When we drop into love, we are without judgement, we are clear and we find that as beings of love, we do not need to do anything with our feelings but allow them to come up and allow them to move on, reflecting on them if we feel called to in order to gain insight into where they stem from.
Although manifestation tells us that we are the point of attraction for what we receive and we receive what we do based on the frequency of our vibration which we create via our thinking and feelings, we do not need to be concerned when past thinking and feelings occur that we will be bringing into being what we don’t want. We can simply know that allowing thoughts to flow and feelings to rise up and out of us, allowing ourselves to reflect on them without dwelling in them leads us to greater understanding of their origin and how we might move on from them and create new experiences in future. This allows us to take action that is motivated by our internal wellbeing and happiness rather than a need to fix ourselves and acquire wellbeing and happiness in order to feel better.
When we operate from awareness of how we are creating our experience rather than a need to control life in order to try and make sure external events and our environment give us what we think we need to feel good, we notice that we are primed to turn towards good feeling, that we are innately directed to connect with and express our inner joy and happiness and wonder for life and that our innate health is always leading us towards enjoying better circumstances in life. Feeling that something must occur in order for us to feel good causes us to look away from what is available to us within and towards a sense of fundamental lack and powerlessness. When we know we have the option to feel well and happy and safe within we are guided by our wellbeing and wisdom to seek out ways of expressing and experiencing them in all areas.
Manifestation leads us to trust that when we are aligned with inspiration and intuition, when we take wise action, when we visualise and enact the experience of our hoped for future, what is for our highest good will unfold.
As we look forward to receiving without delaying our good feeling, we give ourselves the gift of feeling good as we manifest and we feel good even when we do not receive what we have asked for, trusting that we create well when we think and feel well and knowing that as we expand into our truest selves, we experience more joy and peace simply by being and because we have given up trying to control the journey and surrendered the outcome to a more qualified source. We know that no matter what happens we are whole and well and healthy within, we live from appreciation for life, present and grateful and aware that gratitude is the state in which we receive and that awareness, grace, faith and trust are the states in which we create.
Conscious creation is the act of looking beyond what the mind tells us is probable to what the heart tells us is possible. We look forward to possibilities as a way of exploring our imaginative capacities and expressing even more innate good feeling. We are aware of our ability to celebrate life in every moment and there is no element of need or want that can detract from this. When we defer pleasure, contentment and satisfaction and live in a state of perpetual want that sees us never fully immersed in joy, we overlook how we are creating our experience, living from an idea that it is what is available outside of us that determines our feelings rather than knowing that it is what is inside of us that will lead us to expressing and experiencing our innate health and happiness.
Affirming that we can think, feel and act now as we imagine we will when we have what we want leads us to affirm qualities and traits within ourselves that guide us to live in a way that feels more attuned and in alignment with who we really are. It raises our vibration to the frequency of happiness, joy and even bliss because it is not receiving or having the things we want that makes us feel good, it is how we think about receiving and having them that does. And this is because we have access to good feeling at all times, we just need to look towards it in order to experience it and celebrate the gift of creation we are born with in the way we live our lives in order to bring about more opportunities to express it.
When we celebrate potential and possibility, we operate from an awareness of our ability to co create with life, to engage our power to feel good in any moment, to imagine what we might bring into being and enjoy how we feel when we visualise receiving it because we do so from a sense of fun and play and a space of wholeness, happiness and health. This leads us to create lives we love because we do so with awareness and gratitude, we consciously raise the frequency of our vibration, expanding and dissolving into an experience of pure love and wellbeing and as we do, attracting and opening up to more and more opportunities to express our truth in our lives. We appreciate our gifts, we celebrate what we are capable of and we reflect on what is and isn’t occurring for us with curiosity, living from our spiritual wisdom and experiencing more good feeling because of it.
This is a lifelong practice, not something we figure out overnight. Life is a journey of learning to return to our true selves. Trust and faith are fundamentals on this journey and in the practice of conscious creation. We have to move beyond an intellectual understanding of manifestation in order to create a life of flow that honours our truth and expresses our passions and brings to life our desires. We have to fully trust in the power of the unseen and the unknown, as well as our own worthiness and ability to receive.
Living in a state of trust and co creation, knowing on a fundamental level that we can in any moment begin to create a life we love in every area is about giving up the urge to try and control how we receive. Manifestation and living from a higher consciousness are about intention and surrender. And when we live intentionally and surrender outcomes to the spiritual, the mystical from an authentic trust in its power, we are gifted with the time and energy we would have spent trying to control what is beyond us and we do so in a state of trust and faith that frees us from stress and worry and aligns us more fully with our truth, allowing us to explore new ways to live and create.
Trusting and having faith in the creative power of the life as well as in our own ability to bring into being what we want when we do, bypasses our focus on the interpretation of reality we have created via our limited vision, understanding and ideas about how things are or should be. Doing so allows us to play at life without attachment, enthusiastic about our ability to change how we think and feel and notice that in doing so we are changing the world around us. We feel connected and present when we are no longer striving and forcing but allowing our natural good feeling and ability to flow with inspiration and imagination to lead us in exploring the potential we have for transforming our lives as we do.
When we focus our energies on bringing into being what we want to see in the world, feeling the feelings of it as already in existence and surrendering the outcome of our efforts to a higher power, we take guided action to move towards our desired futures. Manifestation works to help us shine a light on the areas where we feel held back, invested in limited beliefs, not fully faithful and trying to control outcomes rather than following our intuition and surrendering what is beyond us.
Manifesting is the act of deliberate co creation with the life.
One area of struggle can come from our efforts to resist what we do not want and believing this to be the same as or a part of the process of manifesting. When we believe in the possibility of something, we are teaching ourselves to feel like it already exists and we work towards achieving it, operating on the faith that we are sending energetic signals of intent into the world around us. Manifesting is the awareness of possibility and our potential to bring into being what we want to experience. We allow ourselves to be guided in action by a trust in our ability to create from a space beyond the logical and physical and our expectations or beliefs about how things should unfold so that we allow them to in the way that is right for us.
Resisting is the act of struggling to withstand the effect or action of what we do not want to occur or the attempt to prevent it from happening by fighting against it. When we are focused on resistance, we fall out of alignment with our truth, our core values, our ability to experience insight and spiritual guidance as well a state of faith and trust. We are all familiar with the phrase ‘what we resist persists’ because when we focus our energy on what we don’t want we create more thinking about it and feelings of struggle. If we direct our energy towards what we do want and the possibility of working towards it at the same time as trusting that we are being supported in the manifestation of it, we feel better, more hopeful, competent and capable and are able to imagine a positive outcome which feels good to us and guides us towards useful and positive action.
When we remain true to our inspired goals and empowering beliefs and trust in our ability to co create and communicate with God, source, light, love, Universal power, we remain connected with our own power to create, centred and focused and in touch with the knowledge that we have the ability to maintain our truth at all times, able to distinguish between having a thought and creating thinking about it, as well as conscious of the state we choose to live in. In this space, we recognise during moments of doubt, stress or overwhelm that the wisdom within us that exists before, beneath and beyond the experience is guiding us to let go of yet another set of limiting beliefs and behaviours in order to expand more fully into who we truly are and what we are capable of.
We have the power to decide on our actions, our choices, our thinking, our focus. It is not an act of struggle or forcing but surrender and allowing. When we believe in our worth, our wellbeing and ability to feel good, we choose to be guided by these even when we make mistakes and limited thinking would direct us otherwise. We are always being guided to uncover and explore and celebrate who we really are and what we are really capable of creating and achieving. The energy of life is loving consciousness that powers and supports us in every moment, allowing us to create an experience of everything we imagine. When we default to its wisdom and power, we do not need to resist life, we can embrace it, aware that we decide on our experience of it, choosing who we are and how we think and feel and act and knowing that as we do, we are directing the creative power within and all around us to create outcomes for us that we are deciding on in every moment.
Manifestation is about uncovering the freedom we have to explore our creative capacities and realise our abilities.
We have all had an experience of thinking something into being and yet we often seem to question the power we have over manifesting good and might even be more comfortable when our fears come to pass. This does not mean we are attracting or manifesting the challenging events and circumstances in our lives, rather that we are more trusting of and invested in confused ideas about tempting fate, bad things happening in tandem, things being too good to be true than we are in the possibility of conscious creation, our ability to feel good whenever we choose to and the phenomenal impact this can have on our lives.
Beneath all of this is a foundation of belief that centres on what we can expect in life, what we deserve and why and we can start to change the narrative by just allowing ourselves to feel as light and peaceful and joyful as we can when we notice we are feeling otherwise. In this way we are aware of our energetic state and the process of flow that allows us to show up fresh to life rather than rigid, fixed or stagnant. To really get to the heart of things we need only return to the love that we are and let love guide us to recognise that what we really want is to feel whole and well and supported and connected, to feel able to trust ourselves, to act in alignment with our truth. When we do, we begin to understand that if we allow a loving expression of self to be known to us and guide us, we will automatically begin creating a healthier, more satisfying experience.
As we work to manifest, we benefit from releasing any ideas we have come to internalise about asking being wrong or showing us to be greedy or needy or bad in some way. We exist as a part of a creative and intelligent and loving energy that does operate from or with judgement. We direct this energy in every moment of our lives to create an experience and not asking does not mean we are not sending out messages of desire or requesting and receiving, it means we are using the creative power of life without conscious intention in a way that may not be benefiting us.
Redirecting ourselves to feelings of love, freedom, peace, joy and expansion every time we begin to consider the value of past beliefs about what is allowed, what is deserved, what is right, can help us to drop into an experience of wholeness and wellness and in this experience we can reflect on what we want and ask for it. Once we do this, we can write down action steps towards fulfilling our own needs, moving towards the achievement of our goals and bringing our dreams to life, being sure to celebrate even our smallest successes and being flexible and adaptive as life flows and our plans need to.
We have the power to choose to do things differently in every moment, to realise that we always have the option to decide again, to understand that how we feel is not the result of the lives we lead but that the lives we lead are a result of how we feel.
Life can feel beautiful no matter our circumstances when we open up to the love and wellness that exist within us and that we are. Thinking thoughts of joy, peace, wholeness and appreciation trigger emotional states that raise our vibration and change our physical make up and committing to choosing to follow thoughts that lead us in feelings of acceptance, connection, happiness and gratitude is an acknowledgement of the power we hold to feel well no matter what is occurring around us and make this a habit of being.
This is an ongoing practice. We know when we need to make changes and in which areas we need to make them because it is in these areas that life isn’t flowing for us, isn’t representative of what we want and doesn’t seem to be offering opportunities for change. Stepping back from focusing on what isn’t right allows us to channel inspiration that opens us up to what is and might be so that we see a way of moving forwards. It doesn’t have to be that our situations are bad, they can actually appear to be wonderful but when we feel deeply that we aren’t fulfilling our potential or are holding ourselves back or not living in a way that is guided and motivated by and aligned with our core values, our truest awareness, we know it, we feel it and we are ready to take steps to move beyond our supposed comfort zones because we know they don’t or never did feel truly comfortable to us.
As we reflect on the lives we live and what we ultimately want to feel and do and explore and enjoy, imagining new experiences can lead us to consider why we are withholding ourselves from fullness and fulfilment, where we are being guided to expand, what achievements or goals or desires are just beyond our reach and where in our lives we dream of shining more brightly. This is a practice of presence so that we are not distracted by or caught up in past beliefs or habits and are able to honestly with gentleness and kindness reflect on what steps we can and want to take to move forwards.
Practicing appreciation without force or effort but with a natural willingness to be grateful and aligned and fulfilled keeps us centred in our innate joy and peace. No one can do this for us and taking responsibility for how we feel is not just an act of empowerment and liberation but an organic consequence of tuning in to the ability we have to inhabit a healthy state of being. In realisation we know so we do not force but align and allow. In doubt we struggle and attempt to control. Self love is the means by which we progress well and evolve. Self discipline is the result of knowing that being aware and intentional and vigilant is the act of love we commit to that elevates our experience without judgment or punishment.
Noticing our physical state is key to keeping ourselves in alignment, letting go of tension and tightness when we become aware of it, relaxing and resting when we need to, supporting healing and reflecting on what the physical might be revealing about the mental and emotional. Habits of being become habits of self on every level. We are not dual beings, we are and of one energy. Loving ourselves into a higher vibration shifts things in the world of form so that we dissolve blocks, let go of resistance, revive, restore, recharge. Letting awareness of where we physically feel pain or struggle guide us in gently uncovering where we feel pain or struggle mentally and emotionally can allow us to move into healing that is holistic. This is achieved by our inhabiting who we really are and not what we have been told, taught or shaped into. It is the return to a truer state of being that allows for and unfolds as an experience of love, clarity, health, truth and absolute wellness.
In peace, joy, love and harmony, a perfect affirmation to repeat is, I invite in miracles. We all know that to live well, we have to think well so that we feel well and act well and letting transformation feel magical and mystical helps us to experiment with an easy, fluid and flexible approach to life. We can experience miracles and we can create them. Letting love lead us in grounding in this truth leads us to nurture our creative impulses and investigate our inspired desires and feel comfortable in allowing ourselves to be led by the experience of fulfilment we enjoy when we imagine following and receiving them.
In presence, we are also in joy and as we release what we have been holding onto, make peace with the present moment, enjoy a feeling of spiritual, mental and emotional clarity and wellness, we embrace joy, we feel optimistic, bright and light and are enthusiastic about life, able to delight in the simplest pleasures and be grateful for all that we have and are able to create.
As the saying goes, a dream without a plan is only a wish and changing how we think about ourselves, how we express ourselves, how we spend our days and where we are headed in life allows us to become clear enough to identify what it is we really want as opposed to what we are conditioned to believe it is safe or realistic to ask for. Manifestation is a practice we are all engaged in all of the time. Simply, as energy we send out information into the world around us via our thinking and the feelings it generates and if our state of being is not in alignment with our health and wisdom, we do so regardless of our intentions and desires because they are at odds and our state of being overrides them.
Manifestation is the act of creation and what we create within is what we experience without. A simple practice for conscious manifestation is to imagine that there is no deserving or not deserving, no worthiness or unworthiness, only straightforward requesting and the receiving of our requests. Taking this approach allows us to bypass any contrary feelings generated by past beliefs, identification with them and subconscious patterns of being. When we make manifestation neutral, we are neutral in our thinking about what we want to receive and far more open to the receiving of it and to allowing an experience of joy, gratitude and enthusiasm to arise because we are not struggling in any way with it. From neutrality we can begin to explore whether the thoughts we follow, the way we think and how we feel are aligned with health and peace and whether we are practicing a state of being that has us feeling we are lacking in some way. In lack we are not in gratitude, presence and worth.
In order to request and receive, we must simplify our approach so we can begin to consider why we want what we want. Can we imagine having it? How will we think and feel and act when we do? How will having it guide the way we talk to and about ourselves, the scenarios we bring to mind, the stories we tell about who we are, what we have and what we do and can expect in life? We have the power to do things differently and change can feel light and bright and joyful. There are times life feels heavy and hard and in these times, we can take a deep breath and release all that feels tight and tense within us, inviting in healing energies, tuning into our spiritual grace and harmony and allowing our natural and innate ability to reset to be known to and guide us.
As we move forwards, make plans, explore new ideas and desires, it can be helpful to remember that what we have now may have been want we once longed for which directs us to gratitude and appreciation and seeing that what may now look to the limited mind as failure to achieve in terms of what we don’t yet have, can be understood as opportunity for insight, release, expansion, growth and evolution. As we move on, as we explore and investigate and expand into new expressions of self, it is helpful and healing for us to be kind to ourselves, to be gentle and patient and understanding. In the moment that we feel tension or struggle, we do not have to strive for optimism or positive thinking, we can simply move into not thinking which allows us to realign, to focus on being, breathing, connecting with the moment, choosing peace and clearness, knowing we have access to them.
The experience of co creation with a higher power is one of trust, hope, surrender, faith and happiness and these are available within us all of the time.
The Universe can hear you. Are you paying attention to what you are asking it to deliver? Are you ready to receive all that you truly desire? Are you willing to let go of all that holds you back so that you vibrate at a frequency of health, hope, allowing, gratitude, joy and celebration? Manifestation is the act of deliberate creation. We are always creating. Choosing to be conscious of how and what we create leads us to realise the power of our potential for focusing our energies onto what we want to receive and experience in life, rather than what we don’t. Until we decide to become aware of the subconscious beliefs and paradigms running our lives, we default to them the majority of the time and come to believe we have little control over the way our lives unfold.
When we choose to explore our truth and trust in our intuition and the power of a greater consciousness to guide us, we purposefully take steps to explore our greatness, connect with our potential and do the work necessary to move beyond our subconscious beliefs and programmes so that we can begin to manifest the lives we want to be living. Use this workbook to get clear on what you want to manifest and why and to envision who it is you believe you will become by receiving it. As you record your insights and intuitive guidance, you will be creating a manual on how to live in alignment with your highest expression in the moment. We receive by becoming, we do not become by receiving. Use this workbook to set your intentions, record your progress and expand your goals and vision. Become the person you want to be who is already within you. Imagination is key to creation. Visualise your new and greater expression of self and record your insights here as your guide on expanding into it.
