Affirmation: I am always manifesting. I manifest to my highest and best.
What we think about, we bring about. What we concentrate on, we draw towards us or are drawn towards. I think of the story about the father teaching his son to drive. Up ahead is a bolder and the father is very concerned that the boy will run into it. He repeats over and over, “Watch out for that bolder!” What do you think happens? Of course, the boy hits the bolder. How could he possible miss it? It’s the one thing that’s being pointed to over and again.
We do the same thing in life and so many times, it’s about something negative. I was with a person once who kept telling me how much trouble she was to her husband. The man seemed genuinely crazy about her but she kept telling him over and over, how difficult a person she was with whom to live. I could only imagine how long it would take him to start to believe it. And, then what would happen? Would he stay around or would the ground be prepared with the negative comments to grow something she had believed would happen all along?
I participate in the Pink Ribbon Yoga Retreat (.org) every year. I facilitate it and am one of the yoga teachers. Our first year in 2005, one of our yoga teachers kept repeating that she didn’t feel skilled enough to teach cancer patients. She was an extremely gifted teacher and she taught a wonderful gently yoga, a type of yoga very appropriate for cancer survivors. When the evaluations came in there was one (out of about 20) that mentioned one of the teachers seemed uncomfortable in her teaching skills. Did she manifest that?
That’s not to say we manifest everything, although there are some who would disagree with me on that point. What about you? I am a breast cancer survivor. I never dreamed I would get breast cancer. Now, I have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, pre-high cholesterol and with osteopeni. I don’t know who they are talking about because to look at me, you’d never guess I was dealing with any of those issues. And, just last month, an eye doctor diagnosed me with some sort of condition that exists in only 10% of the population. I know, I hadn’t manifested that ailment. I didn’t even know it existed. And, I know I’m not the only one who has received surprises throughout their lives.
I did however manifest the life I am now living. I feel blessed beyond belief. My life is full of love and joy. My days are rich with people to nurture and who nurture me. I wake up to a world of beauty and richness. My faith is continuing to grow. Even though I have these physical challenges, I still feel like I am strong and healthy. I think it’s because one of my affirmations is: This terrific body is Powerful, Strong and Balanced.
It is a puzzle isn’t it? I know we manifest our own reality. I know it! I also know, life throws things at us we never even dreamed of, both blessings and challenges but why take the chance to manifest those things we don’t’ want to deal with, they may come along anyway. Why not make the effort to believe in the concept that we can create our destiny? Why not go for the moon? Maybe then if you fall, it will be into the stars and not flat faced down into the mud.
