So what the heck? There's a secret to manifesting?
Why didn't anyone tell me?!
You want it.... really bad. A new car, a new house, to lose weight, go on vacation, MONEY! You manifest for it, you take the action steps, you visualize, you affirm and you match the frequency in a dizzying dance of euphoric woo woo!
Sometimes it works - in a lesser form, perhaps - but themagic happens. Other times....(crickets chirping)
Time passes and yep - it's still you and the crickets! For me - this usually results in a full on tantrum. My four year old child takes over and hollers dramatically at the Universe. Whhherrree's Myyyyy Stufffff! Complete with tears and flailing limbs. Exhausted - I finally give up (and let a whole lotta self-judgment settle right into my cells!)
So you move on, get on with your life, stop all that mumbo jumbo stuff and lo and behold - it suddenly shows up one day or something even better comes along and happiness ensues!
Wait...what? Was my frequency suddenly aligned? Had I somehow arrived at the exact place I needed to be to receive it?
Does the explanation really even matter? AHA MOMENT HERE: Nope
When we relax, have fun, be happy and STOP trying so hard - THEN things start to happen!
I know - I know, somebody told you or you read it somewhere - you have to think about it all the time. You have to BE in thevibration of it all the time. Here's the deal. Do you think about breathing all day long? Do you think about the sun coming up - about gravity holding you to the earth - about that new shirt you ordered online? No. No worries, right?
You don't have to jump through manifesting hoops. You don't have to TRY so HARD because when you do - you're standing right in the way of receiving. (this is so me!) I'm not saying you shouldn't 'be in the energy' of what you want. Absolutely - you should. Just don't revolve your entire life around an expected outcome. Manifest, KNOW, move on.
I know this isn't always easy - staying out of your own way and detaching yourself from the outcome. Especially when you're in a difficult life situation. Fact is though - that living in the NOW and being happyis what life really is all about. It's a Win Win situation. You take pressure off yourself. You put your order in and stop checking to see if it shipped or what day it will arrive. You move on - You Know.
You are powerful - you have the Divine in every cell of your DNA! Sometimes the most powerful thing you can do is sit back, relax and enjoy the crickets! You've Got This!
Supporting You On Your Journey,
So just what is our soul and why is it so important to feel connected with it?
By definition the soul is: the immaterial essence, animating principle, or actuating cause of an individual life. It's the spiritual principle embodied in human beings or the universe.
It's the 'pilot light'; the spark that is our essence. It's our Higher Self. It's our Source Energy.
Today's world is moving so fast! Our days start to blend together in one long 'To Do' list. Things can be so frenetic that we spend very little time getting in touch with who we are. We seem to spend less and less time on the things we are passionate about and that give us purpose, if we even know what they are?
Connecting to our soul empowers us! It fills us with divine unconditional love and a sense of purpose. Embracing this essence helps us live a more joyful, conscious, mindful and meaningful life. I love that aligning with this amazing energy also activates healing and that this support is ALWAYS available to us. Does it get any better than that?!
Connecting with our soul isn't difficult, and the rewards are immeasurable.
The Zen Lane
(excerpted from 365 Ways to Connect with Your Soul)
"Meditation isn’t always about being in a totally quiet, controlled environment or sitting in the lotus position. Sometimes it’s about listening to your inner voice, expressing your love and gratitude, and connecting to the divine within you. One of the places I can slip into alpha and really connect to my soul is…in the car! Yep, you read that right: in the car.
A number of years ago, I faced a very long daily commute in heavy traffic. Rush-hour-encompassed horn blowing, hand flailing, and hollered complaints at my fellow drivers. Prying my fingers off the steering wheel had become a daily habit!
Once I realized how much time (and energy) was being frittered away while on the road, however, I made a conscious decision to move into the “Zen Lane.” I began using my commuting time to center myself and do my “I AM” affirmations. I talked to the Divine and shared my thankfulness. I smiled. If someone cut in front of me, I wished them a safe journey. Delays? No problem – more time to get my thankfulness on!
It’s been years since I made these changes, and they still have an amazing impact not only on my own life but also on the lives of my passengers. Last week, my daughter and I pulled up to a drive-thru line behind an open Jeep with several very young children in the front and back seats. In the past, my first reaction would have been to start a rant about bad parenting and children being protected and safe. Instead, I got very quiet, and after a moment my daughter turned to me and said, “I’m sending positive energy to that Jeep to protect them on their journey”…exactly what I had been doing!
These days, instead of grumbling about traffic or a rush-hour commute, I always cherish my time in the Zen Lane. How amazing is it that something that I once dreaded has become one of the best parts of my day!"
