Isn’t it amazing how often we complain that we have wished for and worked towards something and yet it just didn’t manifest in our lives. And yet if we took the time to sit down for a moment and have a good look, we would see that what we asked for did indeed manifest, just not in the form we were expecting it.
The more precise we are in our requests, the more likely they are to show up the way we would like them to.
One example I came across a few years ago was where the housewife wished her husband could spend more time looking after the kids so that she could be out more. With no further specifications on the cosmic ordering form, that one was delivered as the husband becoming unemployed and the woman having to go out and take on a 9-5 job to make ends meet.
Perhaps not the manifestation the woman was hoping for, but certainly a very valid interpretation of the request. Some vital details were missing which could have taken this in a totally different direction. She omitted to say what sort of experience she actually wanted for herself amongst other things. One thing is for sure though, she got what she asked for.
When I am meditating or journalling or doing any other exercise where I am filling out my wishlist for what I would love to manifest in my life, I always ask for it to manifest for the highest good of all concerned. That way I am making sure that whatever happens will keep things in balance and no-one will be going home with their tail between their legs.
If I have my eye on a specific job somewhere and continue to visualise me working there and feeling really happy and fulfilled, it won’t work if I don’t have any regard for the person who already works in that position. By asking that I manifest this job for the highest good of all concerned, there’s a possibility that the other person suddenly gets a wonderful job offer somewhere else that they just can’t say no to. Or that they suddenly want to sell up and travel the world. It’s great to totally surrender to this process and just watch what can happen when everything is in the flow.
I wanted to share something with you that happened this weekend and that did more than bring a smile to my face. Yesterday morning I sat writing my journal when the sun came out unexpectedly. I had a great urge to go off and do something outdoors and so began contemplating different possibilities. The perfect idea popped into my head. A day trip over to Bath. We hadn’t been there in such a long time.
It was a lovely day, sunny with blue skies. I’ll be documenting the trip with some photos in a future post, but this is the lovely bit that I wanted to share with you.
As I sat this morning thinking about what a lovely manifestation the day had been, I realised I had got just exactly what I had asked for in the morning – a lovely warm Bath! I just had to chuckle out loud at that. I really got exactly what I asked for – just with a slightly different angle. But every bit as delicious. And I’m very grateful for that.
I’ll be sharing some further insights on this with you in Part Two.
Have you recently got what you asked for and did it show up in the way you hoped for it? I’d love you to share your comments below. Thanks.
