I have been thinking a lot about manifesting over the last couple of weeks. I actually tried an experiment and decided I was going to manifest a certain thing into my life on a certain day. Everyday for a week, every chance I got, I thought about that thing and actually spoke it out loud. What I would receive and when. And guess what? I got it. I did this twice, both times it worked.
Maybe, but maybe not. So then I asked myself, if this was not a coincidence and manifestation really works, why haven’t all the other things I have dreamt about having shown up? After many hours of reasoning, I think I may have the answer.
You can dream about something or you can manifest it. What I am discovering is there is a difference. Dreaming about something is when you want it and you randomly think about it and wish you had it. Manifesting is when you consciously think about one thing in specific and you set your intentions on when you will have it.
When you are wishing for something you are saying to the Universe that this is something you don’t have. That is all the universe hears and it agrees with you. When you manifest, you believe and act as if you already have it or at least know when you will receive it. When I manifested, I said this will come to me on Friday. And on Friday it showed up.
So this brings me to another point as to why I have yet to receive things I have dreamed of. You must be very specific. I have dreamed of having a mate. But I don’t even know what kind of mate I want. Yea, I have some general ideas. I want someone tall, good sense of humor, likes music. But that could describe a thousand people. Imagine if the universe sent a thousand people to my door. What would I do with that? Half the time I am saying I don’t ever want to get into a relationship again. The same thing with a house. I am ready to buy a house. I have had my dream house in my mind since I was a teenager. So why hasn’t it manifested yet? I realized this week, I have only been partially specific. When I ask myself where I want this house, I’m clueless or I keep changing my mind. Most of the house is set in my mind, but there are parts of the house that when I think about it, the architect changes. So what is the universe supposed to me give to when I’m not even sure what I want.
Whoever is in charge of giving us what we manifest is probably out there shaking their heads telling us to just make up our minds already.
Can you imagine trying to place an order with Amazon but telling them you’re not sure exactly what you want? ‘Ok, Amazon I want a new dress but not sure what brand or style I want. Maybe red, no blue. Hold on definitely the green one. But wait, what if that one doesn’t look good on me?’
Do you think if your order sounded like this you would see that box with the big smile setting outside of your door with exactly what you didn’t know you wanted? Like Amazon was just reading your mind? Nope, sorry it doesn’t work like that on Amazon and it doesn’t work that way for manifesting either.
So this weeks challenge is to make some decisions. If there is something you have been trying to manifest but it hasn’t happened yet, step back. have you been trying to manifest it or have you been dreaming about it. Have you been saying you want it, or do you know without a doubt it’s yours?
Get into some specific thinking. If you need to write it down. I read an amazing book years ago called Write it down, make it happen. I think I need to find that book and read it again. But if you don’t want to write it down that’s fine. Just choose a specific thing and then a specific day that you want it to happen.
Now, realize there is a difference between manifesting and magic. I am not saying that you can’t manifest winning the million dollar lottery, but let’s use some common sense. I also believe the universe answers our needs based on our whys. Why do we believe we should have this. Is it going to enrich our lives or help us serve others? Are we just being greedy and selfish. There may be a reason you haven’t received that thing you have desired for so long. It may not be good for you to have, even though you truly desire it.
Let’s get busy this week manifesting. Let me know in the comments what you are manifesting and if you have used the power of manifesting in the past tell us about that too.
Have a great week and remember,
Face it…Challenge it….Conquer it.
