During Thanksgiving week, I kept up with my new reality of readings and sittings and feelings of gratitude, etc. I did my reads cramped on the plane to California, too confined to even turn the pages on my notebook, I read with feeeeeling – in my mind I was on a first class flight to Monaco. During the day we went to Disneyland, all day I absorbed the inspiration that all those people were there because of one man’s dream. Which went perfectly with reading – “I visualize my new reality daily as a service to others.” I was imagining all those people feeling happy at one of my holistic resorts.
I felt proud of myself for embracing my new self and my new self’s routine. But then – I got the flu. Hubby caught it from the hacking and coughing lady on the plane home, and then he gave it to me. I was tired and stuffy and behind at work. I felt dizzy from the flu and dizzy from being behind; I got behind on my readings and started feeling lost and out of control. On this week’s call, I was achy and tired and lying in bed shivering; definitely not my usual anxious and studious demeanor.
I felt like I lost all my momentum! Do I have to start all over again?! I was pretty upset.
But then – there was my beautiful vision board and my notebooks. I noticed all the chores and services I had accomplished. Everywhere I looked were the colors and shapes I’ve placed like Easter eggs all around. And they all seemed to be smiling at me.
No, I don’t have to start over – there’s no way I could start over because I’ve come so far! I’m different than I was before. I have a new sense about me that knows something I didn’t before – I CAN DO THIS! I can create my life the way I want it to be.
Even a misstep is still a step. Even a crawl is still a step. As long as you are putting yourself in alignment with your heart (dreams, goals, new reality) it doesn’t matter how fast you get there because it’s there waiting for you. Furthermore, What we want wants us just as much, if not more, than we want It!
Like electricity building up in a storm cloud, lightning needs something on the ground to connect with, just like the universe needs to connect with us to make something materialize. When we have an idea, it’s like the spark in the cloud. When we formulate and sit and play with that idea, electricity builds in the ether – a rumbling thunder in the distance. And when we let go and trust and allow the universe to use us as the ground it needs to connect to - CRACK - the heavens open and lightning strikes baby! BOOM – Manifestation of a life better than you ever could have imagined!
But here’s the Truth – the real dream that we all want, is that Connection, and then manifestation becomes just the cherry on top.
