I hear this all the time in my office. “I DO focus on what I want! I have for years! Why isn’t it here? Where are my angels?” The angels patiently smile and remind the person that, hand in hand with focusing on what they do want, they have also been focused on it “not being there.”
This is a finer point to manifesting that even trips me up at times! The trick to creating is to have two worlds going on at once. One is the world you live in every day – the so-called “real” world. Fill yourself up with gratitude for everything you have now. Pour love into every aspect of your current life. Bless the Mess and trust the rest!
Then there is the life of creation. You are living your “real” life now but in your mind you are also in parallel, living your future. You already feel the way you feel when it arrives. You kmow it is going to happen. You have a joyous sense of anticipation. Like a child at Christmas anticipating their presents, you know your creation will come even if you have no clue how or when.
A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to replace a few drinking glasses that had broken. They were inexpensive when I got them, but to my dismay they were no longer being produced. I went on ebay and found a set for $80. That wasn’t what I wanted to pay.
So as the angels say, I “grabbed the remote!” I decided I wanted to get them at a thrift store. I imagined the joyous feeling of finding them on sale. I got all happy as if it was a “done deal” in the future. This didn’t happen because I can predict the future (which I see often as the most probable path) but rather because I knew I was creating.
I woke up the next morning with a certain thrift store in my head, went on faith, and picked up my glasses! There were exactly four and they were $1.29 each!! The funny part is that I found only two originally, but I was so convinced the rest would be there that I kept circling around different sections and shelves until I found the rest!
On a more serious note I’ve been in physical pain on and off for a few months. I hiked 20 miles last fall after sitting all summer and sprained a foot. I had a broken toe on the other one over the holidays (all healed!). I have had pinched nerves in my neck after painting my bathrooms three times each in December. I was healing all of these, but slowly. Sometimes, when I focused on other things, I had no pain. When I focused on the problem, of course I felt the problem. The angels continuously reminded me that my focus was the problem that was slowing the healing.
So at the event I advertised last week, THEO (a group of angels that speaks through channel, Sheila Gillette) came through and suggested we all just make a decision right then and there about what we wanted. By the way, I LOVED THEO!!! Their energy is fantastic, honest, accurate and deeply compassionate. Many people I know received love and healing energy. They are having an online mentoring program beginning 2/20 that promises to be life altering, which you can check out here.
Back to my story. I made a decision at that moment that I would walk out of that room pain free – no sprain, no pinched neck, nothing. That was that. I was done focusing on the pain and holding it in my body. I used every ounce of willpower to imagine feeling great. Of course, within minutes, the energy of God that is already and always there, flooded me and the pain was gone. And to make it even better THEO talked to me about my sensitivity and repeated a few things my own angels have been telling me! It was BLISS.
The pain tried to sneak in a few days later and that is where faith and focus come in. I told it quite firmly but kindly. “I’m done. I’ve decided to feel good now.” I “grabbed the remote” and focused on feeling good. In an instant the heat and love of God flowed through me and no more pain.
I think a lot of us feel like we’re having a tug of war with the “remote” in our heads at times, but hopefully your conscious self is winning!
Here are some pointers this week to “grab the remote” and choose the life you want to live!
1. Direct it
Remind yourself, life does not work the way most of us were taught.
We don’t need effort and struggle to have results. Healing doesn’t have to take forever. Abundance is not directly proportional to hours worked. You can’t save or fix or change another unless they want it. You don’t have to earn love.
Instead the universe responds to vibration. Remind yourself, “My life can start to change now, because I can change my energy now.” Begin to do this by asking yourself, “How would it feel to have what I want, right here, right now.”
Grab the remote and direct the energy with your focus, feeling, and faith.
2. Expect it
Now that you know how the universe works, know that the minute you focus on a loving feeling, the universe starts to match that energy. Now is the time for faith.
Expect that what you want to appear (or better) will come. Anticipate it. Trust it. Live your life relaxing into the knowing that you have “grabbed the remote” and the universe will deliver.
Don’t keep checking in. “Is it here? Did the universe hear me? Does God care?”
The question is, “Did you hear you? Do you care enough to maintain the feeling with faith? Are you willing to focus on what you want more than what you don’t?” Your energy is what matters. Anticipate joyfully. You are in charge. God gave us the incredible gift of free will to direct the creative forces of the universe through our faith, focus, and feeling.
You’ll know you’re manifesting when you don’t have to wonder if what you want is coming. You’ll live your life in joyful anticipation, relaxing into the “now “because you know what you’re creating in the future.
3. Allow for it
Manifesting makes us grow. We must throw away our notions of a capricious, external God that “grants wishes if we’re worthy” and realize that we are simply interacting with the Love that lives inside of all creation.
In doing so we bump up against all those parts inside of ourselves that still hold onto notions of unworthiness, anger, abandonment, forgiveness, you name it.
If you feel blocked, get in touch with the “inner committee” as my angels like to call it. Shut your eyes and ask, “Who inside of me doesn’t feel they deserve this creation?” Wait till you see, feel, or imagine something – a part of yourself. Then say to that part. “I love you. I’m creating this. Would you like to enjoy it with me? If not I have to ask you to allow me to enjoy it.” You get the idea.
Find those pieces of your soul that don’t believe or resist love. This is the healing we came for. Manifesting is a fun way to trigger it!
Have fun this week “Grabbing the Remote!” After all, none of us really want others or the world to choose the reality we get to experience… unless of course, they’re choosing something really great!
Love you all!
