TLDR: This post shares two instances of near-instant manifestations through deliberate creation. By focusing on what is wanted, the creator experienced the desired outcomes, showcasing the power of deliberate creation and manifestation.
This morning was an amazing, delightful experience. It confirmed, as many things in my life do, my expanding power as a creator. Powers creators possess resemble those of the fabled Jedi of Star Wars.
It’s no idle boast. If you’re reading this blog regularly you know. If not, you will if you do.
This amazing morning event came on the heels of another, astounding realization. Although I must say, I’m getting used to feeling astounded. It may be my new normal!
But it was how speedily both happened that really thrilled me. Both featured tiny gaps between my asking and receiving. By “gaps” I mean the time elapsing between my asking for the manifestation and getting it. Past manifestations came with fairly big gaps.
Narrowing gaps tell us something important. Enjoying near-instant manifestations feels great. But they also indicate one has improved dramatically their ability to create. They show “manifesting” getting easier and easier.
This is why I tell clients to focus on small creations. For one, small creations are more plentiful. They offer a lot of poof of improvement. But they also are easier to create. So they help people build trust. Trust that they are a creator. As that trust builds, they get more bold. They want to create more complex creations. Like piles of money. Or world-changing projects.
So let’s dive in and celebrate these two creations.
Better focus: Better futures
It was mid December. I was looking over my finances. Doing that, I said to myself, quite casually, “I’d like to have two more clients at my current rates.” My budget showed my client income covering all my expenses, with a little left over each month. I wanted a bit more left over each month.
Notice what I did here. I didn’t focus on the negative fact that I barely had any money left over! Most people will focus on that because that’s “what is”. They’ll look at what’s “true”. Unfortunately that’s not helpful if you want something other than what is.
Oh, we’re still creating when we’re focused on “what is”. The problem is, focusing there, we just create more of that: what is. That’s ok if we enjoy our what is. But if we don’t enjoy it and we focus on it, we’re going to get more of what we don’t enjoy.
Dissatisfaction we feel when looking at that unpleasant truth tells us in advance exactly what you just read. That emotion (displeasure) says: “Hey! You’re using your unlimited powers to create something you’re not going to like. Knock it off!”
But most people don’t know that. So they double down. They bemoan their finances. Or they try to fix the finances through doing: By getting another job, using credit card debt, or some other unsustainable approach. It’s no wonder many people on tight incomes work two or more jobs. See how unsatisfying that solution is?
Meanwhile, All That Is is UNLIMITED and so are we! We can create ANY reality we want. Including one in which our finances align with our desires. First, we must stop trying to get what we want by doing. Then we must stop focusing on “what is”.
Run from reality: it pays. Literally!
That’s not easy to do because the entire world wants us focused on “truth”. It wants us to be “realistic”. People want us to “get real”, “face reality”. They want us to “grow up”. Especially our parents.
They want us to do that because they’ll feel better about doing the same thing. That’s right. They’re being realistic. And MISERY LOVES COMPANY. Which explains why people call the optimistic ones pipe smokers, dreamers and head-in-the-sanders. I suggest you run from people and the world straight into your own optimistic reality. You’ll love it there!
That’s what I’m finding. And that’s exactly where I found my power.
So there I was, looking at my finances. I looked for just a few moments. Then I turned deliberately to what I wanted. I did this mentally. Physically, I closed my spreadsheet application and my computer. I knew what they were telling me. I didn’t need to keep looking at it.
Instead I just went about my day. Three days later, I got two FREE 1:1 appointment emails from two different people. They both had first names starting with “J”. They also both had gmail email addresses. Both scheduled their free session on the same Tuesday, one right after the other. A week later, both became paying clients at my current rates!
Music set the scene
The second manifestation happened in early January. I enjoy an Apple Music subscription. The variety of music there offers so much satisfaction. I also enjoy the Apple Music app on my iPhone. It’s intuitive, simple to use and has other features I really appreciate. One of those features is the ability to “favorite” songs.
On one of my daily walks, I wanted to listen to all tracks I favorited in my “music library”. The app allows user-created playlists and also creates automatic playlists. One of those is a “Top 25 tracks” playlist. It plays the 25 songs I’ve listened to the most. But I probably have favorited well over 100 songs. On this walk, I wanted to shuffle all of them, not just listen to the top 25.
The problem was the app didn’t have a way to do that. The closest “hack” was to sort my library by “favorites” then play them in that order. I couldn’t play them shuffled, in other words. Had I tried, the app would shuffle them along with all the other songs in my library.
The “hack” was good enough. Until day two, when I wanted to listen again. I couldn’t start at the beginning of my favorites. That would mean I’d listen to the first 20 or so tracks anytime I wanted to walk. So I had to remember where I was in the list and start playing from there.
That would have been annoying if I didn’t know what I know. Since I do know what I know, however, I did something different. And it made all the difference.
Getting it right
Instead of complaining in my head about this situation, I appreciated and enjoyed hearing my favorite tracks. I really, really appreciated and enjoyed them! I mean, after all, I really like these songs. It’s why I favorited them!
I also appreciated the fact that I could sort my library by favorites first. That was a nice feature, I thought. So I appreciated that part of the existing app. Then I melted into my walk, the beautiful, cold day and the music flowing into my ears…
What did I do here?
I didn’t focus on what was missing. I didn’t focus on the fact that the app doesn’t have a feature where I could play ONLY my favorites, shuffled. Instead, I enjoyed existing app features that allowed a semblance of what I wanted. See the difference?
Most people, when they can’t get what they want, will focus on that. They’ll throw an adult version of a tantrum. They’ll focus a lot of their creative energy on the problem. They won’t line up with the solution. As a result, their creative focus gives them more to complain about instead of leading them to the solution. I know that’s what happens. So instead, I focused on how great it would feel to listen to my favorite songs.
Of course, that’s what I was already, actually doing. So it was easy focusing there on “what is”. In doing that, I aligned with that future probable reality in which a version of the app existed that INCLUDED a favorites, shuffled playlist.
Ask and it’s given
Less than three days later, as I was preparing to go to bed, I got a software update notification on my iPhone. I usually activate these over night. This was no exception. I didn’t bother looking at what the update did. I trust Apple.
Every morning I fill my space with soothing music, usually right after an hour meditation. The next morning was no exception. I opened my iPhone, activated the Apple Music app. The app opened, but on top of the app was a notification of new features. Features that came as part of the update.
That’s what astonished me. You guessed it: the updated Apple Music app now featured a “favorites” playlist. One in which I could shuffle the tracks!
In that instance of astonishment, I didn’t think to grab a screen shot to accompany this post. Later, though, I realized I have Apple Music on all my Apple devices. So I could grab one from my iPad:
So by casually asking, then not focusing on an unpleasant what is, I lined up with a future probable reality consistent with my desire. And that’s what emerged in my physical reality. How’s that for Jedi power?
How eternity happens
You may think “that’s a coincidence”. But my clients and I know there’s no such thing.
If it’s not a coincidence, then what is it? It’s me deliberately selecting a future reality from among infinite probable futures, the one that includes what I’m wanting. That’s the nature of creation. That’s how we, as eternal, powerful creators, create our subjective reality.
And when we do that, the Universe and all entities in that revel in that fulfilled desire. All That Is possesses tremendouswherewithal. It can create ANY OUTCOME. It is voracious in that capacity. That’s because All That Is is constantly wanting to know itself. The paradox of its existence is; it can never fully know itself because as it knows more of itself it creates more of itself. It’s that dynamic, that dynamic tension, that gives rise to eternity.
We function exactly the same way. We each strive for greater self-awareness. But we never reach the end of that. Because in every fulfilled desire is born new desire. And that new desire we voraciously desire to realize. Thus, we constantly become more, while wanting to know the more we become. Voila! Eternity!
I love knowing what I know. I love seeing myself improve as a creator. It’s fun developing powers talked about in Jedi Lore. The ability to create reality, including other people. You’re invited to share in the fun: become a client today.
Addendum: It’s two days after writing they post. I just got back from a walk in the Portland winter, which ice sheets replacing streets and sidewalks. On my walk I listened to my new playlist while appreciating my two new clients, both of whom had their first sessions Tuesday. I’M IN SO MUCH JOY in appreciating these two manifestations! Life is so wonderful!
