“Wait, I have something for you.” My neighbour told me as we chatted between our two houses, on a snow covered lawn. Wilson and I had arrived home just at the same time that she and her son Damon, drove in. Since being back home from Rwanda, we had barely seen them. She quickly slipped into her house and came back with a poinsettia plant, in full bloom. “I got this for you to support Damon’s club’s fundraising drive.” she said. Damon is her 7 year old son whom we are very fond of.
I walked inside with the poinsettia bloom and the only words which popped into my head were, ‘How beautiful it is to manifest from thought!”
A couple of days earlier, I was at the Home Depot and wanted to buy a poinsettia plant. I talked myself out of it because at that moment, I could not quite figure out exactly where I would place it in the house. The plants seem to be a bit too big for my space. I decided that I would try to find a smaller plant.
Damon’s mom, gave me exactly the size of the plant which was a perfect match to my space. It could easily fit on the table or on a little stand which I have in my living room.
There is something magical and reassuring about manifesting things or experiences which I really want. It makes me feel that the universe always has my back, even in the smallest ways. How can a poinsettia show up for me, when all I did was decide that I needed a smaller plant, instead of a big one. I said ‘No’ to the big plant quite freely.
Well… I just said it, this is one part of the magic of manifestation – DECIDE. What is it that you want? To say YES to something, means that you have to say NO to something else. To say NO to something which is not in alignment with you, creates SPACE to say YES to that which you really desire.
I have noticed some trends in my life that when I am not sure about what I want or what to do, I seem to manifest exactly that – confusion, indecision, contradiction! Being undecided is also being decisive. The universe gives me exactly what I am thinking and feeling.
What I have learnt, is to be mindful of the messages, emotions and attitudes which I hold moment by moment. In each moment, we have the poser to choose. We can all begin with clear thinking, a deep heartfelt desire and take both small and big actions to manifest our desires.
Here are a few questions for you to think about:
- How do you experience life? As a negative or positive experience?
- What shows up in your life? Happiness? Contentment? Joylessness? Confusion? Stress? Lack of support? Lots of support? Helpful people? Unhelpful people?
- What do you give back to life? Support? Love? Joy? Happiness? Joyfulness?
- What do you sincerely want to manifest? A job? A better job? A home? A better home? A caring family? More money? More time? More self-care? A larger table? An education? Travelling experiences?
- Try to develop a vision of what that thing you want. What does it look like? How does it feel? Can you write it? Draw it? Get a photo of it?
I know for sure that I (and all of us) hold the magic of manifesting our desires by unlocking the right doors to our thoughts, emotions and actions. Unlocking those magical doors can increase our manifestations but it requires the discipline of constantly taking note of what is showing up in our lives and making quick decisions about what we CHOOSE to KEEP and what we CHOOSE to RELEASE.
In my next post, I will look at 10 things which we can do to increase our vibrational frequency and manifest more of what we desire!
