So, manifesting. There is a lot to know. I truly believe I come from a long line of people who manifest things. My mother who raised us, could make anything appear. Seriously, she could think on something and then there it was.
Is it as easy as putting the thoughts out there? Do ideas mean energy that turns into being?
I read a really great book about this. It is called E Squared by Pam Grout. In this book she breaks down some pretty interesting universal principles. It even has several "experiments" you do along with the reading, that can confirm that manifesting and mind set are connected and real.
The Universe wants us to be happy. Its wants to give us what we ask for. However, we seriously do not know how to ask. We spend so much time focusing on what we do not have, we actually send a message to the universe this is what we want. Crazy huh?
The activity that had the biggest impact on me was one where we had to think of something and actively look for it. I chose butterflies, in the dead of winter. The idea was to believe and to actually actively look for those butterflies. I was amazed at how many I found. I found them on stamps, on tattoos, on bumper stickers, on letter head, on the tv, on someone's bracelet. I was surrounded by them. Now the question is were they always there, and my mind had convinced me they were not? They were not important so I was not looking? I assumed there were none. I was wrong.
Could that be applied to other things we seek in life? Is happiness as simple as noticing it? Can we simply choose to notice good things to draw them into our lives, or make ourselves aware they exist?
I have to think this is true. We are spirits having a human experience. We are essentially energy? No? Yes? MAYBE..
I have seen it happen too many times in both directions. The friend who attracts amazing fortune, versus the person who seems to have nothing but terrible things happen over and over.
I am not saying people deserve bad things. I am saying the opposite. I am not naïve and think nothing bad ever happens. This is life of course painful things happen. I am just believing how we internalize and react to those things, can make a huge difference in how we perceive our lives, our relationships, and our role in this world. If we only expect and look for terrible things, that is where the energy goes. The universe is answering what you are thinking and dishing it out. You are responsible for your own energy, what you bring to the table, and the power of your thoughts is unmeasurable.
