Do you ever get discouraged because something you really really want hasn’t shown up yet?
If you are human and reasonably honest with yourself, the answer is probably a resounding YES! In fact, you might even use even stronger words than discouraged!
It’s disappointing to say the least In this age of “Law of Attraction” , fast food and instant messaging when the object of our desires seems to be forever out of our reach.
And so we make a decision that since we can’t SEE evidence of our prize arriving on our doorstep, that nothing is happening and it’s NEVER going to arrive.
And that is simply NOT TRUE!
You see, our souls as integral parts of the Universe, know EXACTLY what needs to happen in order for that “prize” to become something real and tangible that we can touch here in “real” time. Think of it like a giant cosmic, world-size jigsaw puzzle! Close your eyes for a moment and imagine all the pieces of the puzzle that have to be put in place before the picture is actually revealed!!
Let’s use the example of someone winning the lottery and for our purposes, we’ll call him Joe.
First, Joe has to make a choice, an actual decision, that he wants to buy a ticket. Then he has to make a choice WHERE he will buy the ticket. Then he has to actually go and BUY the ticket. And while Joe is making those choices and taking those actions, the store where he buys the ticket is also making choices and decisions including choosing to sell lottery tickets and going through the process of being a vendor, etc. And, at the same time, there are the exact right number of people that walk into the store and buy tickets, before Joe.
Let’s not forget about all the steps that have to be set into place involving the process of actually determining the winning ticket! Can you see how many steps, decisions and choices – pieces of the puzzle – that have to be aligned before Joe actually finds out he has THE winning ticket and manifests his winnings?
Behind the scenes, the Universe is methodically arranging all of the pieces so that Joe can receive his prize. And what about the pieces AFTER Joe wins the lottery? The bank, the stores where he’ll purchase all the “stuff” he’s been dreaming about, etc.
Can you see the ENORMITY of the energy behind Joe becoming a lottery winner?
It takes a helluva lot of energy to manifest into physical form – and sometimes – arranging all those pieces of the puzzle takes more “time” than we think it “should” and therein lies our disappointment!
Here’s a useful and comforting fact for you: over 90% of physical manifestation happens in the NON-physical BEFORE “the prize” can manifest into physical! WE CAN’T SEE IT while that’s occurring!! But just like we can’t see the 90% of the glacier that’s under water, it doesn’t mean that our prize doesn’t exist!
So the next time you feel that since you don’t have evidence of your heart’s desire on your doorstep, it’s just not coming – remember this article! Don’t lose your focus and don’t let doubt, anger or fear dowse the anticipated joy of the arrival of your prize!
Because another “fact” about how the Law of Attraction works is that how you FEEL has a very direct impact on the “speed” of your manifestation. Every doubtful, fearful, or angry thought is like you holding up a giant STOP sign to the Universe! The good news is that on the other hand, every joyful, grateful and excited thought and feeling becomes a “GO, GO, GO” sign to the Universe!
I believe our lives are meant to be filled with joy and all the good things in life! Use your infinite inner power of FREE WILL to create that in your life this week!
Choose to believe you CAN have it!
It IS yours!
And you DO deserve it!
And so it is.
“Follow-Through” . . . . .UGGHHH? or YAY????
I’ll be honest. My first thought when I hear those words “follow-thru” is UGGGGGGHHHHH! BIG TIME!
It comes from years and years of making promises to myself (and others) that I wasn’t able to keep at the time. Wasn’t able because I wasn’t willing. Wasn’t willing because it was either the wrong choice for me at the time or I was too afraid . . . or both!
So . . . “follow-thru” isn’t really a phrase you will hear me use very often.
But right now . . . . “follow-thru” is a critical phrase for me and probably for you too.
Because WITHOUT “follow-thru” it is highly unlikely you will get where you want to go to, no matter how much you say you “want” to.
Follow-thru is about taking ACTION. It’s about DOING not just dreaming. It’s about manifesting into PHYSICAL form because we are spiritual beings who have chosen (this time ’round at least) to have a PHYSICAL human experience.
Follow-thru is about writing this blog post. Not THINKING about writing the blog post. Not WISHING I would write the blog post. Not FLOGGING MYSELF because I haven’t YET written the blog post. It’s about WRITING the bloody blog post!
And the mere act of following-thru with ACTION . . . is the key that unlocks the golden door of manifestation. Because when we ACT, all of the power of the Universe is activated on our behalf. Did you realize that?
The Universe can only match the vibration we give out. If we give out the “I’ll do it later” vibe . . . then we get “I’ll get it later” vibes returned. That’s how the Law of Attraction works. It’s straight quantum physics that part. So “wishing” we’d take that next step forward brings us more wishes and more opportunities to keep wishing!
But actually TAKING the step forward . . . well . . . WOW! . . . that opens up a whole ‘nother Universe . . . literally! It opens up the Universe of Infinite Possibility . . . because in our act of stepping forward, in our ACT of taking ACTion . . . we send out a vibe to the Universe that says “I’m READY! Let’s HIT IT! NOW please!”
And THEN the Universe says . . . . “GREAT! Hold onto your hat! ” . . . .
In our act of DOING instead of wishing or hoping or berating or stalling or whatever word you want to insert there . . . our act of DOING sends out a ripple effect of bringing into physical form that which we are showing our desire for by our ACTion.
Do you get how powerful that is?
Do you get how powerful YOU are?
Do you get that that tiny little wee baby step that feels so f’ing monumental . . . MATTERS? Matters BIG TIME?
And let’s be really clear here! It’s not “which” step you take. It doesn’t matter whether you choose to go forward or backward or left or right . . . the only thing that matters is the DO-ing. WHICHEVER step you take, the forward momentum of your vibration will lead you to the next step . . . and ultimately . . if you keep taking those itsy bitsy teeny weeny little steps . . . ultimately you WILL . . . WIHTOUT A DOUBT . . . manifest what you are seeking OR something even BETTER!
I know the fear can seem awfully real.
I know you can easily fall into the trap of believing False Evidence Appearing Real.
And that’s OK . . . . for a while . . . .
But please, oh please, oh PRETTY PLEASE do NOT let it KEEP you stuck.
Bookmark this post and come back and read it when you notice you are NOT moving forward with whatever it is.
Read it AGAIN to remind you of your TRUTH!
The Truth that you are a Glorious Child of a Loving God. The Truth that JOY is your divine birthright by CHOICE!
The truth of quantum physics and the fundamental principle of the Law of Attraction . . . .
What you think about . . . you bring about . . . and if you are only THINKING it . . . that is NOT a PHYSICAL form . . . DO-ing it makes it a physical reality.
DO ing the little bitty baby step . . . NOW!
Not an hour from now.
Not next week.
Do it NOW because you DESERVE it.
Then do it AGAIN because of how GREAT you feel because YOU DID IT!
DANCE OF JOY!!
And oh please, please share it with us here below in the comments section so we can all celebrate with you. When Joy is shared it multiplies exponentially!
How fun to think of all of us doing the Dance of Joy for everyone who leaves a comment below because they TOOK THE STEP!
I gave up mind-f**king myself this year.
It is part of my intention to love myself more – the unconditional kind of way – like the Universe and how I believe God loves me.
And so . . . the Universe is presenting me with lots of opportunities to confirm that I’m sure about that. It’s called the Law of Opposites – which I’m now consciously aware of (thank goodness) thanks to my friend and healer extraordinaire Leeza Robertson.
One of the ways I screw myself in the head is by using my intellect against me! Because I have the gift of being able to see all sides of an issue and I can do that with relatively no effort, I regularly feel like the little silver ball in a pinball machine, being flipped around from one end of the machine to the other with all the points going DING DING DING – look over here!!!! Of course the big problem there is that *** I’m*** the one in control of the paddles!!!!
It’s a cacophony in my head and I tell you it’s one of my biggest challenges so it’s no surprise that now that I’ve sent my intention to move THROUGH it . . . I’m creating situations to do just that!
Here’s an example:
My dryer recently needed repair and the home warranty company sent John out. He was (is) a VERY nice man who went out of his way to assist me, for which I am VERY grateful! It turns out I had a substantial repair bill so he had to call the warranty company for authorization. The warranty company gave me a choice of taking the cash of the cost of the repair (to be used towards my own purchase of a new dryer) or proceeding with the actual repair.
After considering my options briefly while the warranty guy was on hold, I chose to proceed with the repair because frankly, I was going out of town in a few days and didn’t want the hassle or the expense of shopping and arranging for installation of a new unit.
I consented to the repair with the home warranty guy, the home warranty guy authorized John for the repair and the phone call was over.
And then . . .
The pinball machine started in my head!
“Well maybe I should have gotten a new unit. I could wait till I get back. I’d have a brand new unit. But no, I don’t want to bother with it then either. Way too much hassle. ”
Yada, Yada, Yada . . . . the little silver ball was racking up points like mad!!!!!
And then . . . the AHA moment kicked in!
I suddenly and DELICIOUSLY realized that . . . .
I could make ANY choice I WANTED!!!!!!
Just because I had the SKILLS to see every side of an issue, and just because it had become a pattern for me originally ingrained by my [always-logical-never-emotional] lawyer-father – did NOT mean I had to always USE the skills for EVERY damn decision!!!!!
I’m telling you that was an ENTIRELY new concept to me!!!
For over 50 years I’ve examined every side of every issue, to the best of my ability, like it was a life or death case. That’s how I was raised. My father valued ration and logic over just about EVERYTHING. If I could use a logical, rational argument about almost anything – I not only received my Dad’s praise, but if it was something I physically wanted, I frequently would get it by being logical and rational.
But if I used emotion – AT ALL – or if I was just a kid who “wanted it” for the sake of “wanting it” – then I was pretty much guaranteed a definite NO which was also frequently followed by a “go to your room” or more dire consequences.
Light bulb moment!!!
I just turned 57 years old!!!! Dad went up with the angels in 2009!! And I’ve been on my own and out from his roof since I was 17 anyway!!!!
So I can give myself permission to make any damn decision I want! Rational or NOT!! Emotional or NOT!
MY choice!! As long as I can align with it and feel good about it because those are MY values and MY life principles these days!
HAPPY DANCE TIME!!!!
See if you can catch yourself the next time you start second guessing yourself. Pause a minute and determine whether you are just playing out an old pattern. Ask yourself whether that is serving you well TODAY!
And if the answer is NO . . . . then make a conscious, current decision to build a new pattern that DOES serve you. Ask the Universe to help you if you want.
And of course . . . .
I’m here for you also!
Here’s to happy, CONSCIOUS, aligned decisions and choices!!!
