Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan may not realize it, but in this January interview with Stephen Colbert he is describing the exact mechanism behind thoughtform manifestation that I describe in my downloadable course. He needed to cast a very specific type of actor for a complex role, and that actor literally walked up to him out of the blue (scroll down for video link).
Shyamalan had visualized, created a preliminary "template" for, and consistently reinforced the specific thoughtforms he wanted to manifest; the "Universe," as he describes it, delivered. (Or to use the language of thoughtforms, he set up a powerful vibration on the Vibrational Web, which began "arranging" people and circumstances to deliver exactly what he asked for.)
I watched this interview when it first aired. That Shyamalan felt the need to "shuffle his feet" a little while crediting unseen forces for his manifestation underscores the reality that all of us are always manifesting; we just have never been taught how. But he is clearly very well aligned in terms of subconscious expectations, conscious intention, and most likely the energetic aspects of his physical form. Based on his language alone, I would guess he has a longstanding, committed practice of meditation and spiritual/psychological work. ~Rishika
