Wanna hear the most incredible story about manifestation? I am a big believer that we manifest our own reality. I first heard this concept about nine years ago in the movie “The Secret”. I was so intrigued by this whole concept, plus it was coming on the heels of the “tragic” break-up of my 11-year relationship with my honey. If I took this concept to heart, I had to accept that I manifested the break-up. I struggled to wrap my brain around that, yet I intuitively knew this concept to be a spiritual truth. So I started reading everything I could get my hands on about the topic.
I also have a really good friend, whom I nicknamed “the master manifester,” who can manifest the exact things she wants unlike anyone I’ve ever seen before. I have asked her in the past how she does it. She said she’s very specific about what she wants. I told her I have been very specific, too, with no results. She said that she’s also very clear about what she doesn’t want. I told her I have been very clear, too, with no results. She then threw up her hands and said, “Well then, I don’t really know what to tell ya.”
After pondering this for many, many hours, I think the difference between us is that she decides what she wants and sticks with it until she gets it. I, on the other hand, am more of an opportunist. I want something specific one day and a week later I want something completely different. It drives me completely batty sometimes; but I’ve finally accepted that this is just who I am. And the less time I spend trying to change who I am and instead embrace it, the much happier I am—even if I don’t always manifest exactly what I want.
That said, I want what I want! I mean, who doesn’t? Don’t you? So I keep working on my manifesting skills. To date, I still haven’t totally figured it out—because if I had, I would have already manifested that long-term boyfriend, among other things. However, every now and then I get lucky and manifest something pretty quickly. So here’s how my story goes: About a six weeks ago I thought I had found my next potential long-term mate, but it didn’t work out. This one hit me kind of hard because I had been doing so much “work” on myself to be ready for an intimate, expansive relationship (plus I REALLY liked him) and yet I got the same result as before. There was also a pesky Pluto / Uranus square happening, so I know this was all part of a greater lesson for me; but I digress…
Unfortunately, I felt myself slipping into a depression and I NEVER, EVER want to go there again! So, I started whipping out all my tools I’ve learned over the past decade to love myself more, to see the bigger picture, to be grateful for everything just as it is, to trust in God/Spririt/Universe, etc. During this process, one very wise epiphany I had was that living alone—where I spend far too much time with my tempestuous ego—is not healthy for me. Therefore, I decided that I wanted to take on a roommate—to bring more energy into my house. I also decided that I wanted it to be someone who worked at the nearby gym I go to because I wanted my new companion to value a healthy lifestyle like I do. That was on a Friday. I talked to the gym owner about it on Monday and by Wednesday I had a gym employee call me within one hour of posting a flyer, saying he was looking for a place to live. We shook on an agreement and he gave me a deposit that afternoon. So, in less than a week, I manifested exactly what I wanted. VIVA!!! Now, if I could only manifest a long-term relationship that quickly!
As a postscript, what I now know in hindsight is that my Soul did have me manifest that painful break-up 9 years ago because it was time for me to wake up spiritually. It was literally the catalyst to my spiritual awakening. My spiritual journey over the past 9 years has been an amazing blessing. I sometimes say that I was sleep-walking through life up until that point. I am living a much more conscious life and I have experienced joy unlike ever before. It took a while for me to see this; but it was the most profound turning point in my life—in a very good way. If you look for it, there is always a silver lining. DOUBLE VIVA!
So, what experiences have you had manifesting things quickly? What are your tips? I'd love to hear from you!
