While it is true that circumstances do not matter, you should not ignore your reality. Believe me, I tried. Shortly after my awakening experience, I thought if I just stayed inside, meditated, and tried to focus only on what I wanted to experience, the 3D would reflect it instantly. It took me a couple of months to realize that I couldn’t hide from the world.
So, do not ignore your reality when manifesting. Instead, remember how powerful you are, and instead, choose not to accept unwanted circumstances. Personally, I have found that paying attention to what my 3D reality is showing me, is helpful. The reflection indicates both current and previous states of consciousness.
Because we are always manifesting, and this world is really just a shadow, oftentimes as we are changing our story, changing our beliefs and assumptions, and occupying new states of consciousness, we may not see the reflection right away. Then again, in my experience, some things manifest pretty quickly. So, you don’t want to ignore your reality because then you may miss those things that do align with your new beliefs, etc. Again, you can choose whether to accept the unwanted things you notice. Especially if you know that those experiences no longer align with who you are or want you want in life.
I find that paying attention to the 3D allows me to really fine-tune my ability to be consciously aware of what I am doing internally. If I experience an unwanted circumstance then I simply observe and think to myself “what is this showing me” or, if I know it represents an old belief, then it allows me the opportunity to reaffirm my new beliefs.
