Sometimes we fall into the trap of telling God how our manifestation will look in the end. “I’ll meet a single man/woman, who’s a certain age and drives a certain make of car.
Here are three questions to ask yourself:
- Do I trust God?
- What do I want in a relationship? (Or whatever you want to manifest)
- What do I contribute to a relationship? (Or whatever you want to manifest)
Another trap we get pretty close to outlining, but remain vague. “A cute, unconditionally loving blonde who’s happy to see me when I come home, and likes to cuddle in the evenings.” Then, we complain when we’re at home with a golden cocker spaniel in our lap on Friday nights! (cute, unconditionally loving…) Leave the details to God. Stay open,knowing if what you’re heart desires is for your highest good, it’s on its way. It’s God pleasure to please you! The Universe only says, “Yes!” and the happier you are every time It says, “Yes!” The more experiences It will bring you that make you happy – because It’s responding to your energy filed with a “Yes!”
Rather than telling God, I want to work at XYZ, doing ABC, feel the attributes of the company and job you want to experience. Do you want to be respected in your line of work? Do you want to be the one they call when they need a certain job done? Put it all out there—and know that this or something better can come your way. It can happen instantly, and it can take what seems forever.
If you’re consistent with your desire and stating your claim, your good will come your way. It’s up to you to recognize it. The “No” from a top employer in L.A. was hard to take—until I got a job in a like-minded environment in a far more fun, supportive, company culture. During my job search if I’d start to feel sad over not getting “the one” I’d give thanks for not getting it, knowing something even better was on its way—and I could hardly wait to find out what it was! I’d remind myself I was open and receptive to my highest good. This scene has played over and over in several areas of my life. When the dust settles, I’m doing the happy dance! Even if it took me two years to heal a broken heart. . . Shazam! Oh, it is so worth believing in your dream, yourself, and a power for Good—greater than you.
Go ahead, tell God your plans. Keep some wiggle room for even grander ideas!
