It was an almighty revelation to me when the angels finally impressed up on me that the universe follows our direction whether we set it consciously or not. I grew up steeped in the belief that God had my life planned out and I was rewarded for following “His” plan, or punished if not. According to the angels, and the experience of many embracing a more accurate paradigm, it doesn’t quite work that way.
In reality we choose a destination or goal (either consciously or unconsciously) and then the Divine tries to guide us there in the most loving and joyful way possible – a way that is typically so elegant and beautiful that it is often beyond our wildest dreams.
Take one of my clients for example. He was doing very well at one point in his life and then he went through a tough phase where he wasn’t sure how to pay the bills. He ended up driving Uber and hoping for good tips. That’s when he started manifesting seriously. His goals were pretty “unrealistic” in human terms, given his current situation. He wanted to live on a large piece of property that could support horses and eventually start a charity.
He stayed in touch with his heart, even though appearances would have him doubt his dreams were possible. He worked diligently to get his mind in the right place, until he knew, without knowing how, that someday this life would come about. He spoke confidently about his future. I could tell his energy was lined up perfectly with his desires.
One month after months of working on his inner world, the little miracles started to show up in his life. A few weeks later, the big one arrived. Out of the blue, an old family friend he’d not heard from in years called. This angel had just “thought of him” when a local store in her town was about to shut down. Being an astute business woman she talked to the owner and conditionally orchestrated a deal where my client could take over the business for free, with no money up front, and pay it back in several years. Added to that she offered him a place to live on her large property! “By the way,” she told him, “I know how to write grants if you ever want to set up a non-profit.” Way to go God! He is off to his new adventure, manifesting even more.
This is how life really works. We weren’t taught that. We were taught to believe only in what we know. How sad it would be if we did. I don’t know how to make rainbows, nor paint the trees with autumn colors. I don’t know how to pick or roast coffee, nor do I understand how my car works. I don’t even understand the half of it when it comes to how my own body works. Why, oh why then, do we believe we have to know how our dreams will come true?
This week, allow yourself to dream… then, here are a few pointers from my Manifesting in the Flow of Grace playshop to help you get your energy lined up with your desires.
1. Get juicy with your imagination
What would life look and feel like to have your dreams? What would have changed? Who would be in your life? Who would move along. Fill in as much as you can imagine. Details don’t matter so just pick ones that make you feel good. The feeling is most important. How would you feel? Really get into it.
To the degree you can feel your dreams, you send out a strong signal.
2. Look for examples of people who have what you want
If someone else can create the life you want, you can too. It has little to do with money, circumstance, etc. It has everything to do with their beliefs about what they can have. That is why they have attracted the money, help, and/or circumstances. The universe and the Divine have infinite resources. God is your benefactor and mentor… and may show up in many forms!
Seek out examples and learn from their mindset. Don’t worry too much about how they got what they have. Focus more on their mindset.
3. Find ways to feel the feeling you ultimately want… now
If you want something in the future, it is always because you want the feeling it will give you. How can you feel that now? Get creative. Years ago a friend wanted a new car. She decided it would make her feel classier since her old one was pretty tired looking. In the short term, she cleaned up and detailed the old car with a paintbrush, knowing that when she was done with it it was likely turning to parts. She felt better already, classier, and more willing to go places. Sure enough she manifested a new one in a lot less time than she thought was possible.
Find the feeling and you’re tuning your inner dial into the energy of what you want.
Miracles happen on a dime. We don’t have to know how. We just have to keep our energy in the right space. Find that feeling this week and enjoy the journey!
Love you all!
