I’ve been studying and applying Law Of Attraction (LOA) concepts in my life lately, and have seen some very awesome things happen because of it. If you are unfamiliar with LOA, you can learn more about it here.
With only a few months’ practice under my belt and being the results-oriented person I am, I have been asking myself, “Is this really working?” Even though I am seeing desired things manifesting in wonderful and unexpected new ways every day, I still have had this little niggling doubt in the back of my mind.
One of the teachings of Abraham-Hicks (you can check them out on YouTube, highly recommended; changed my life) is that it is easier to manifest something that is less emotionally charged. For example, it is easier to quickly manifest smooth traffic on your way to the park than it is to manifest the $8,000 you need to stop foreclosure on your house. Both are possible, but we usually have a harder time releasing resistant thoughts and beliefs with regards to something we deem vital or extremely important.
And so it has been with me. I have been quite successful at reducing my resistance to some very big desires I hold for myself and my family. I have seen things coming into play to help in the manifestation of these desires. I can feel the momentum of it, and it’s very exciting. But still, that doubt. Tiny, miniscule, but present some of the time.
I have found it very beneficial to notice and appreciate the “small” things that I have successfully manifested. It encourages me to keep looking for evidence of the bigger manifestations.
So a couple days ago, my ex asked me for a small, inexpensive item I had borrowed. Now, I knew it was around. And I was not looking forward to searching for it, as I had just hurt my back and moving around was painful.
So I put it off for a day or two. Actually, I pretty much forgot about it. Yesterday morning as I was grabbing a few things from my nightstand, I successfully knocked over not one, but TWO glasses of water (I have nightstand hoarding issues 😆). Some on the floor, some on the bed. Cleaned it up, but the sheet right where I sleep is wet. Oh well, I can just sleep on the other side of the bed tonight (I would have just changed my sheets, but my back wasn’t having any of that).
Then last night, getting ready for bed, I was having difficulty plugging in my phone charger and knocked over my ashtray, right onto my still-damp bed. Immediately a thought came to me: WHY have I kept messing up this area today? I looked on my nightstand and realized the spot that I had made to honor my ancestors was just a mess. Wrappers, junk, etc. And I thought about how disrespectful that was to my departed family.
So I started straightening my nightstand a bit. Moved an item that had fallen over, and there was the thing I had borrowed from my ex!
In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal. And I got a chuckle that for my stubborn ass, my path of least resistance was cleaning up an ashy, wet sheet and a nightstand. But the experience showed me that by putting forth a desire (to locate the item I borrowed) and then simply forgetting about it, the Universe gathered all the cooperative components to bring it to me in a very short period of time.
If Source (or God, or the Universe, or whatever name you wish to bestow upon it) is so involved with my well-being that it concerns itself with such mundane things as a $10.00 borrowed item, then how can I doubt its ability to give me all I desire, if I would just stop the thoughts that impede momentum and allow it to flow to me?
Source loves us. Source adores us. Source wants us to thrive and have a joyous, abundant life. And all we have to do is get out of the way and allow Source to gather whatever we need to live that joyous, abundant life.
Peace to you!
