Instant Manifestation Made to Order!

–Law of Attraction and Miska’s Perfectly Timed Arrival
Miska, the constantly moving puppy!

I know it may not make sense to most people to bring a new puppy into the fold so soon after unexpectedly losing our sweet Luna (See “The Rainbow Bridge” for Luna’s story).

But sometimes the Universe arranges things just so, and you know they are simply meant to be. This was one of those times.

We lost Luna 4th of July weekend. That next week was rough for all of us. We felt heavy and sad, missing our loving friend, and I kept replaying the discovery of her broken, lifeless body over and over in my mind.

A Little History

When I started travel nursing almost five years ago, one of the first things I did was gift myself a dog. This dog was going to be MY dog. I anticipated my new role as “dog mom” with great excitement. I made decisions about the size of dog I wanted, it’s temperament, and intelligence (I often referred to Dobby as my “empty nest” dog!). After a great deal of reading and researching, I decided on the Rat Terrier breed (Side note here: I have since become more aware of the number of incredible “mutts” that are overrunning shelters. And of puppy mills. Had I understood back then, I would not have looked for a purebred. But I did, and I am head over heels in love with my Dobby. So here we are…).

“Just Putting It Out There”

In the past we had discussed adding another dog to the homestead, but the consensus was that it wouldn’t be until our old, sweet, tired Mama dog, Babycakes, passed. We never thought that a healthy two-year-old dog would be the one leaving an empty space in our family.

Mike and I were driving back roads, talking about Luna about a week after she died. We discussed the idea of getting another dog, but neither one of us was completely invested in that thought. I had casually looked at some Rat Terrier breeders the day before and immediately determined that I was not shelling out hundreds of dollars for another purebred. We all love the Rat Terrier breed, though: Smart as a whip, comical, small enough to easily handle, and loyal to a fault. Yet we also know that we understand dog behavior and training very well, especially after seeing the beautiful healing we helped Luna achieve. And we certainly don’t need a pedigree for a dog to be “acceptable” to us.

We then decided that while we WANTED another Rat Terrier, we would leave it to the Universe to bring our next companion to us at the perfect time in the perfect way, leaving no doubt that it was destined to be ours all along. No resistant thought. No painful, aching, longing to find our next pet. No hours-long Google searches for breeders. We expressed our desires with no thought as to when or how this would occur; We simply stated what we wanted and left it at that, confident that it would all work out.

Easy As Pie

After that conversation, the subject of getting another dog never came up again. A couple nights later, I was up at 3:00 a.m., getting ready for work. Mike texted me to see if coffee was done; he wanted to stop over before I left.

I figured he had worked on some house plans and wanted to show me. Wrong. In strolls Mike with the cutest little brown and white puppy and the biggest smile on his face. On the way to fireworks the night before, they saw a stray Border Collie walking along the road. Mike’s wife and kids went gaga over it. Mike simply said, “No.”

From the back seat, the kids’ little friend pipes up: “Are you guys looking for a puppy? We have one left and my dad says she has to go. It’s a small dog.” So after fireworks Mike grudgingly takes the family to the girl’s house to see the puppy, dreading having to be the bad guy who says no. Puppy’s parents are both on the premises, and of course, they are both Rat Terriers! Mike is now frantically trying to think of a reason why this just isn’t a good idea. It’s so sudden. Both mom and dad are sociable and well-adjusted. Puppy is 12 weeks old, old enough to go to a new home. She is healthy. She is lovable. She is smart. And……she is ours. For free! And this is how Mike and I manifested the dog we wanted. It is so amazing to realize that we wanted a Rat Terrier, and we didn’t have to do a single thing to get her. Mike was going to drop this little girl off at her home whether or not there was a dog there.

The Little Healer

We all love our Miska. Tending to the needs of a new little one has helped us all work through some of our grief over losing Luna. This is especially true for Luna’s Person, Herm. Having a new puppy to fuss over has given him an outlet for the love he used to shower on Luna. Before Miska came, it was hard for any of us to talk about Luna. But Miska is making it easier to talk about old fond memories, and it doesn’t hurt as much to mention Luna’s name anymore.

Another blessing is enjoying the way Miska is exhibiting many of the same quirky behaviors Dobby had when he was a puppy: The way she zips around, tunneling under blankets, how she loves being wrapped up and snuggling with her people, and her adoration and veneration of the squeaky mini tennis ball Herm gave her is fun to observe. It is such a joy to see her doing the same things that endeared Dobby to us when he was a puppy.

Finding Her Place

The past couple weeks have been a difficult time for both the human and dog population on the Homestead. Our canine friends have had their stability ripped from them-a once cohesive pack has both lost and gained a new member nearly overnight. The dogs are doing well, and we haven’t had any major issues, but we also understand that it will take some time for all of them to find balance and security again. We figure we are looking at a few weeks to a few months until everyone settles in.

We joyfully welcome our newest family member, Miska, and we will always remember and appreciate the incredible way the Universe arranged everything for us to come together.

****Update****

Miska has been with us for a couple weeks now, and has totally settled in. Dobby still grumbles about her occasionally, but he often acts like a cranky old man anyway, so no surprise there. Housebreaking was nearly effortless. She is smart, happy, confident, and loves everybody. We are so glad she made her way to us.

When Manifestation Is Effortless

An Inauspicious Beginning

My days off are rare and very precious to me. So when I learned I had to give up a Thursday morning for some work-related computer training, I was less than pleased. However, my oldest son Mike offered to drive me out (work is an hour commute). He would drop me off, get the grocery shopping done, and we would hit some garage sales on the way home.

I always enjoy road trips with Mike. We are on the same page spiritually, and we have some really awesome conversations while we’re driving. So things were looking up; we had a plan to get some things done and have fun at the same time.

At 5:50 a.m., we left the homestead for the metropolis of West Plains. There is an intuitive Tarot card reader that I listen to on YouTube: Lotus Spirit Tarot. Shannon Colleen is incredibly gifted and a joy to listen to, and if you are so inclined, I encourage you to check her out. Anyway, she had a reading posted for Thursday, which explains the dominant energies of the day.

Setting The Tone For The Day

We started driving and decided to see what Shannon Colleen had to say. The entire reading kept bringing up the subject of abundance: Today would be a wonderfully abundant day, abundance will come to you in surprising and unexpected ways, etc. We were impressed and hopeful due to its positivity, but both of us wondered just how much abundance could come through a computer class, grocery shopping, and yard sales? She DID say surprising and unexpected though…

Abraham-Hicks teaches that manifestations occur more rapidly when there is less resistance to the thought of the manifestation. In this case, we really weren’t too concerned about whether or not we would actually see the abundance come. We were open to it, but not heavily invested in whether or not it happened. We were already anticipating a pleasant day, and we were content with that.

Perfect Timing

Mike dropped me off at my class and left to go grocery shopping. Class was painless, and over in 1.5 hours. I tried to get a hold of Mike, but he didn’t have WiFi. I enjoyed the warm sun on my skin for 10 minutes and Mike pulled up, all done with shopping and ready to hit a few yard sales (Family passion: Yard sales and auctions).

Away we go, lured by a neon green sign with clear writing, which led us to our first sale. It was several families in front of an empty school building. Promising.

Items Worthy of “The Look”

As Mike and I perused the tables, not overly impressed, we both suddenly stopped and gave each other “The Look.” It’s the look we give each other when we stumble across something awesome, but don’t want to give away our eagerness in anticipation of the haggling stage. Gotta be cool…! Mike and I have both determined that we need our own computers. Me for my blog and writing (borrowing the ex’s for now), and Mike for his future mushroom lab (edible and gourmet mushrooms/growing kits). Again, something we knew we needed, but simply left it up to the Universe to provide at the perfect time.

Cue the Angel Chorus and Golden Sunbeams

And did it ever provide! There before us, amongst baseball gloves and scattered books, was not one, but TWO Acer Aspire One notebooks, with the protective film still on them! No sticker. We find a lady to ask the price. She calls the owner. $15.00? We pretend to discuss whether or not to buy both, but we know damn well we aren’t leaving without the pair. Threw in a couple baseballs and a mitt for Gabe, and away we went, giggling like kids over our score.

We found a church sale next. Got a handful of fun things: Some movies, a dress, etc. Got to pet some adorable puppies, too.

Then suddenly, the sales dried up, and we hit a couple lousy ones. It happens. At this point, we decided to start heading towards home, figuring there would be a couple sales on the way. There were none. As we discussed the sudden disappearance of yard sales, we concluded that we had allowed ourselves to be led by the Universe with no expectations other than to enjoy each other’s company, and the path of least resistance led us to those notebooks.

Another amazing thing I realized was the money I made from attending that class paid for all our yard sale purchases, almost to the dollar.

The Fun Continues

We had the most awesome, deep, incredible conversation driving the back roads home. It was just so exciting and fun to see how the Universe worked to provide for what we had asked for. So many things had to come together and be timed perfectly for this to happen. I am amazed at how much Source cares about and provides for us.

So here I sit, feeling like John Boy Walton the day he got his typewriter. Mike, putting on his IT hat, tweaked up, reformatted, and did the magic he does to get me up and running. It’s an older, basic notebook, but it’s perfect for my needs: I can work on my blogs and my writing projects, take it anywhere, and it’s small with a nice keyboard. I am so grateful for the way it all worked out. I am also thankful that I was able to gift the other one to Mike for Father’s Day. Now he too has what he needs to keep moving forward with his lab plans.

I see the components of many long-held desires finally falling into place. This is an exciting time for me and my family, and we look forward to many more surprises and delights along the way.

A Small Law of Attraction Moment

4/22/2021

Jack’s Fork River in Mark Twain National Forest, SE Missouri

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!
