This week we welcomed another New Moon and witnessed a rare astronomical event in the solar eclipse. Energetically, it’s a great time to begin something new. I started a new group Abundance Journey on my Facebook Abundance group page and look forward to the bountiful blessings the participants will receive and the news they will share with each other along the way.
I love teaching abundance and prosperity; probably because I have so many experiences day-to-day that I can share and that are real-life, average person and can be understood by anyone. This blog is another of these stories.
My daughter and her family recently bought their first home. With young children and plenty of expenses involved in raising a family, she and her husband plan carefully for major purchases. My daughter received an IKEA catalog in the mail a couple weeks ago, and found a chair that she wanted for her new living room. It retailed for $279 (sale priced $229) which was not in the budget right before back-to-school, but my daughter knows a thing or two.
She admired the chair and marked the page as something she would like for her house, imagining just where she would put it in the living room, and how it would fit in with the other decor, and then went on about her life.
She did not put any energy into how much it cost, that their budget didn’t have room for the purchase or any negative thoughts. She simply desired the chair, admired the chair, pictured it as a part of her living room, and then let it go.
The very next day she wandered into a local thrift store and had a couple small purchases in her hand as she headed to the checkout area. At the front of the store she spied a chair – it looked a lot like the IKEA chair she had been admiring in the catalog, and the sign on it said $15.00
She noticed that there were some stains on the chair so she asked the cashier if they would take $10 for it. The cashier called the store manager, and sure enough – her $10 offer was accepted as the selling price.
My grandchildren helped her load the chair into the van and as they were securing it, my daughter saw the label on the bottom of the chair: this was the exact IKEA chair that she had admired in the catalog!Once they got it home, a once-over with their steam-cleaner made it as good as new. This is exciting, but this is not an unusual occurrence in our family. These kinds of things happen all the time. As a writer and spiritual teacher, I’m blessed to have a never-ending supply of stories to help me illustrate these life-changing principles.
This is a TEXTBOOK example of how to manifest.
- put your attention on something that you desire
- visualize how it will fit into your life
- feel the positive vibes you will get from having this as if its already here
- avoid any negative thoughts (like “I can’t afford it” or “this will never happen“)
- let it go – knowing that the Universe has Its own time-table AND avenue for delivering your Good
Early into these spiritual practices, it is easy to get caught up in (using this chair scenario as an example) putting our energy and attention on getting the $279 to purchase a brand new IKEA chair; but experienced manifesters know that we must-must-must avoid micromanaging our miracles! We need to practice the Jedi art of allowing.
Wayne Dyer taught that infinite patience produces immediate results (I wrote about that here) and this chair story is about as close to illustrating the raw power of that principle as it gets!
Is there something in your life that you would like, but can’t quite see how you can get it into your life right now? Follow these simple steps and reconnect with your “seat of power“…it’s been yours to use all along.
