Recently, I have been working with a client who was getting frustrated with the idea of manifesting what she wanted. She had read some books on the subject and knew that it could work, but wasn’t quite sure how to really put manifesting her desires into action. She kept getting stuck on the “How!” How does it work? So, I listened while she poured out her frustration. I came to the conclusion that she needed to start small. I know faith is believing in something you don’t see but I knew that if I could lead her in a direction of attracting some small things, her faith in her ability to attract bigger and better things would come. So, I suggested to her that she pick something small, and maybe something a little out of the ordinary, to visualize having. I told her to concentrate on whatever it was she chose to attract and feel what it was like to have it. And, I reminded her to be specific.
Of all things, she decided she would like a cookie. And, taking my advice to be specific, she decided that she would like a homemade chocolate chip cookie. Within eight hours of her declaring to the Universe what she wanted, her son’s girlfriend came by with a container of homemade cookies… homemade lemon cookies. While she was pleased that homemade cookies showed up at her door, she kept holding on to the idea of the homemade chocolate chip cookies. To make this short, the next afternoon another friend came by and gave her a few fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies wrapped nicely in plastic wrap. He said to her, “My friend and I decided to make cookies today and I thought of you and thought you might like some.”
Of course she ended up calling me excited about how easily and quickly the cookies had come, so I asked her to decide on something else small. She said that she had seen a book and had wanted that, another two days past and she was given the book. It’s amazing how quickly the Universe will bring the things we want. My client is now making a small list of things she wants, and I know that with each small thing she manifests, it will become easier and easier so that she will be ready to move on to attracting bigger and better things.
Here are the steps to take if you are new to the idea of manifestation and how to use the law of attraction:
- Want something, pick out a few small things you want and as you go through your day think about those things… maybe if it’s cookies you can imagine how they would taste.
- Be specific about what you want, you might want a new set of dishes, but if you leave it at that you might get green dishes when you wanted white ones.
- Keep focused on it.
- Feel the feeling of gratitude and happiness that you will have when what you have asked for shows up.
- Don’t think about the how! What (what you want) is our job, how is the job of The Universe.
