Today is the start of the second of my two weeks off. I feel much more rested and my brain is actually working. My body is healing but I still need to find some strength and energy. That will be this weeks focus. I have had the time over the past week to sit and think about my life. What do I want? Where do I want to be? What do I want to be? How and I going to get from here to there?
I started a manifesting ritual, a simple activity to imprint my desires into my heart and soul. With a smile on my face and my pen and paper at the ready, I started thinking about my first affirmation. So many things to choose from, what should be first? Do I want the money for things, or do I want the things? Which is the best way to phrase it all?
My first attempt was 4 lines long Far too long to be writing out by hand multiple times.So I adapted it the next time, still a bit long but I persevered and made it through. Finished it all up and tucked it away somewhere that it will be safe. Now I wait for it to appear like magic in front of me. It happens for others so why not for me.
The part that is not made clear is that you actually have to do something in order for your desire to manifest. It’s all well and good to write out my affirmations, say them out loud and however anyone else tells you to do it, but, you have to actually do something. I can see many people sitting at their front doors waiting for a huge check that may never arrive, or waiting for that awesome job offer to appear even though the company does not know who you are or that you even want to work for them. So what do you have to do?
The written and vocal affirmations are just the beginning. If they make you smile, and raise your vibration, then they have done their job. Now get out there and apply for that job, or find a way to bring that huge check into your life. I know there are those who have manifested in this way, a check turns up out of the blue and things all fall into place magically. But that doesn’t happen for everyone, for some of us it takes a bit more work, a lot more faith and support from the universe around you.
Maybe I should try that. Sit in my lounge room every day for a month, meditating and affirming that a cheque for $100,000 is going to appear any second. It might work, it might not. What I do know is that for those that things like this happen to, they have done something in the past that allows for it to manifest. They may not remember what they did or how they did it, but somewhere along the way energy, their own energy was involved in helping things to fall into place.
Energy is the most important part, along with intention. You have to really want it, not just want it today and want something else tomorrow. The universe matches your energy with the energy of what you want. So whatever you have your intention set at, will manifest. Good or bad doesn’t matter, it’s all about the energy.
Have you ever looked at something and thought, I don’t want that to happen to me, or I don’t want that in my life. Then boom, it manifests almost before your eyes. Into your life like magic and so not welcome. Your intention was set on what you didn’t want, but the universe does not understand want or not want, it only understands energy. Where your energy is focused is where things happen. Whether you want it or not you will get it.
My own little manifesting affirmation is something that I have wanted for a long time, and also something that I never thought I could have. Although I have very focused intention on the goal and dream I also know that the negative part of the all this has, up until now, had the strongest energy. So this time I have focused on the feeling that having this manifest will bring me. Thinking about it makes me smile and gets me excited. This is the feeling and the energy that is needed to bring this all into being.
So now I have asked, I have focused, I have put all my most positive intent into it and have let it go. It will be tucked away somewhere safe while I get on with the business of living my life. Then one day I will find and open it and marvel at how quickly it all came about. How wonderful the universe is and how lucky I am. But deep down I will know that I have taken a small step every day in order to help this along. I may not have the money yet to achieve my dream, but I can do all the parts that don’t require money. I can and will put my happiness and focus into the little details that all come together to make my manifesting successful.
One step a day, just something little to help your dreams manifest is all it takes. So now it’s up to you. One small step a day or sitting waiting for it all to just arrive. What’s your choice?
