[Quick Note: I am currently on vacation, wallowing in the gorgeous surroundings of an Austrian Spa. I do this at the end of every year. I not only recharge my batteries, but I also always end up coming back with tons of insights and ideas, which I then share on the blog. So really, I'm doing this for you. You're welcome.
But not to worry, by pretties, I won't leave you hanging while I'm away. I've written up a series of short blog posts to tie you over. Those of you who like short posts are going to love me for the next couple of weeks. Those of you who long for 3.000 behemoth posts, there are always the Archives. The Deliberate Receiving Blog will return to normal, wordy service on January 6th.]
Awesome Dudette asks: “I decided to do a LOA test! I decided to focus on something small and try to manifest it. Strawberries: they were the victims! So, ok, I was walking home from school really focusing on strawberries and just how delicious they are. Then I focused on the color of them, so red… And didn’t look for them, didn’t try to make them appear… Just focused.. Then I started seeing red things everywhere! People with red clothes would walk by me, red cars would appear… And finally I got home and thought: “No strawberries on the street. Ok, I’ve still got all day long”, and I took the elevator and went to my apartment. I walked into the kitchen and wow!!!!!! My maid prepared strawberries for dessert! I couldn’t believe it. That is NEVER an option for dessert… And then I thought about asking you how the hell would the Universe know that I would want strawberries and made her prepare them even BEFORE I thought about them? How would it know that I would think about strawberries.. If she prepared them BEFORE I thought about them! My family knows about LOA and we all love you, so I said what I would ask you immediately when I saw strawberries there! And my maid answered: “who said I wanted to prepare strawberries? I wasn’t even thinking about it! A few minutes ago I decided out of nowhere when your parents were already having lunch that I wanted to serve them, you thought about them first”! So, ok… She had just gotten the idea, AFTER I thought about them, cause I take an hour to get home from school… And I thought about strawberries just as I was getting out of school and entering the subway faaaaaar from home. And she had JUST thought about the strawberries… So, she definitely made them AFTER I thought about them! But, let’s say she made them BEFORE I thought about them! Could the Universe have prepared it? Would it know that I was gonna think about this fruit later?”
Dear Awesome Dudette,
Yes, the Universe can prepare what you want before you even ask for it. How is that possible? Because you’ve generally asked for what you want WAY before you can verbalize it, especially when it comes to bigger stuff.
Here’s how it works:
Let’s say that you have an experience that bores you. In that moment, you want more excitement, whether you’re aware of it or not. Now, the Universe knows that you want excitement. Every desire you’ve ever had and every detail of every desire you have after that moment add to the knowledge the Universe has about what you want. So, the Universe knows what kinds of experiences match the feeling of excitement for you. In fact, the Universe knows ALL of the experiences that would match that feeling for you, while you may be able to only think of a few, based on your selective memory and your experience so far.
Now, let’s say that you start to line up with the feeling of excitement. Perhaps you’re thinking of another subject that feels good and you start to line up with all kinds of positive manifestations, excitement being one of them. The Universe starts to orchestrate scenarios that will match that feeling and lines them up. They are ready to go. It knows whom it can call upon for help, which other humans are a match to the same experience you want.
And then, when you fully align with your manifestation, the Universe inspires you to the thought: wouldn’t it be nice to go on a roller coaster. Only, there’s no amusement park anywhere near you. Nevertheless, you have play with the thought because it feels good. You love roller coasters. They’re exciting and fun and you remember every time you’ve been on one. The fantasy alone is enough to make you feel great.
And then, that night, you find out that you won a trip to an amusement park that has a huge roller coaster. The drawing was three days ago.
How could the Universe have known, you ask?
Because the Universe knew before you did, and inspired the thought you had about the roller coasters. The thought itself was a manifestation, you see. That’s not when you created your desire, that’s not when your desire was formed. All of that happens automatically. When you have a great feeling idea, it occurred to you because it matches the energy of something you want. Ideas are manifestations. Thoughts are manifestations. Actions are manifestations.
So, stop worrying about trying to figure out what you want. The Universe knows what you want. Feel good and you’ll be inspired to have the thoughts, ideas and experiences that match that. The discovery of your desires is a manifestation, too.
