The secret of the universe.
I knew what it was.
I had a dream, writing appeared on a giant blackboard and it was simple. And it was the secret of the Universe. And I remember thinking gosh, it’s so obvious. How the heck did I miss this?
And then I woke up and couldn’t remember.
I’ve never remembered since.
So I’ve got no universal secrets from God to share with you, unless my memory returns before the end of this post.
What I did come away with is this….we live in the very heart of creation…our imagination…but many of us are no wiser for all that takes place within.
1.You’re the one
Perspective is everything. From Jen’s point of view there was a ‘something’ outside of herself that would provide her with what she needed and ‘the universe’ had a plan already mapped out for her and she couldn’t change ‘the will’ of the universe.
So she wasn’t about to get caught up in choosing to live a better life.
Didn’t matter that her life wasn’t working so well. This was what she had chosen to believe so there she sat, pretty much in the role of victim.
Always looking outside of herself for what went wrong. Always asking for someone to come and save her. Mostly miserable. Mostly filled with complaints and fears and anger.
Her ‘universe’, that she didn’t want to interfere with, wasn’t being very good to her.
Aaargh Jen…free will is yours girl. You are the plan…you are the one. You are your own rescuer.
We have the ability to be creatively transformative and realize our wishes, but first we have to change our imaginal activity.
2.Constant change and then some
If there isn’t a universal law called the law of constant change, there blooming well should be. Constant development is a law of nature and we are part and parcel of it all.
Change is forever at work in our life which means…guess what…we’re going to experience change and sitting stewing in a mess of our own making isn’t helpful because the changes that occur, and believe me, they will happen, are likely to be on a downward spiral. Yikes.
Since life simply can’t and won’t stay the same, we need to get out in front of it and have life conform to how we decide it should be. Hey, accept your power, don’t be afraid of it…it’s yours to do with as you will. Only please do us all a favour and make it work for you and not against you…remember we’re all one and your success is mine too. Not that I’m totally self-absorbed…I’d do the same for you. 🙂
All we need do is follow three little rules.
Decide what you want. I know, I know it’s obvious, but do you know how many of us aren’t exactly sure of what it is we do want?
Your power to create, which is all that manifesting is, is sadly diminished without some clarity.
You might know that you’re here to help make our world a better place. But maybe you think that’s for a later date, maybe when you have more time, or become more experienced or maybe you’re waiting to become more well known.
Would you be surprised to learn that all the resources you need are available to you right now? That you have all the gifts and tools you need to begin…right now.
I want to remind you that what you think and what you do matters. I want to remind you that you are already powerful.
Don’t worry that you might choose something and change your mind later…so flipping what. This is the journey. We get to choose our path, and chances are it isn’t a straight one. As we said before everything is in a state of constant flux and that includes us.
Have the courage to look at what gets in your way. And yes, it’s going to be those self-doubting beliefs that appear from ‘out of the blue’. Except there is no blue, only our consciousness operating.
When the obvious things show up, like your nearest and dearest explaining you probably can’t do what you want because blah blah blah or you think holy moly I need money for this and I don’t have any, or my own particular favourite, I don’t know how…this is time for releasing.
One by one, just choose to see these limiting beliefs dissolve, poof into thin air. Yes, just like that. Release and let them go. Thank them…they’re just trying to be helpful…and let them know you no longer need them. Goodbye.
Rule three will take care of most of the limiting beliefs that aren’t so obvious. And yes, you probably do have them.
You’ve got to have patience and faith. Faith is like the twin of doubt, but doubt fills our eyes so we can’t even see faith, but it’s a bigger and stronger twin, more powerful than any doubt ever could be and all it needs to truly bloom is a little attention.
Faith is what makes the invisible visible and we find it as we become more receptive. Let your faith in the outcome nourish and feed you.
Feel yourself being the one you’ve decided to be, feel yourself in the presence of whatever it is you desire. It’s important to feel the presence of abundance, love, health before it arrives. Those who can happily mentally dwell in the outcome, live without anxiety.
Don’t let the current outer experiences dictate what’s going on within; just a little faith will do, and you’ll find all manner of things coming to your aid that you’d never noticed before.
A teacher might appear, or a class, a book falls off a shelf.
And remember impatience is all about wanting control and being needy, which tells you the space of faith you need to be occupying isn’t quite there yet. Anything other than faith is a block to your receiving, so open up dear hearts and let it all rush in.
Now we have those three easy steps to manifesting out of the way, in the comments below tell me your manifesting secrets, ‘cos we all know these three are just the beginning. You might make a huge difference in someone’s world with your ideas, and we know that’s what you’re all about. Right?
As always we so appreciate you stopping by to read and share.
Encourage one another.
