I've been reading this forum for a while now and thought I should come out (or come in) and introduce myself!
I've manifested so many things/situations it's incredible. I'm also coming to understand how not only do I attract wonderful things, I also attract not so wonderful things. The more I understand how the LOA works the faster things are manifesting.
A year ago I caught my husband of 10 years having an affair. It was devastating at the time. But if I'm completely honest with myself I know we weren't happy together. I wanted to leave the marriage before he had the affair but I didn't want to hurt him. But I remember thinking to myself that if he ever had an affair, that would be the deal breaker. That would be my "out". Did I manifest this to happen? I don't know but I do know I'm happier than I've been in years since he left even though it's been a struggle at times.
Anyway .. when he left he took half the furniture and I was left with an empty living room. I had an air mattress to sit on. So I prayed (Buddhist) for a sage green sofa that was new or almost new in 21 days. A friend made a beautiful green and red cushion for me and I placed that on the floor in the space where I wanted my sofa. Everyday, as I passed by that space I'd visualise a beautiful sage green sofa and say "Oh I love my green sofa, it looks so good there".
Family and friends kept offering me their old sofa's throughout these 21 days but their sofa's were blue or brown. I would say to them "thank you but no. I'm getting a green sofa".
On the 21st day I woke up and thought oh well it didn't manifest but that's ok, it WILL come. Oh ye of little faith
On the afternoon of the 21st day a van pulled into my driveway .. with a beautiful sage green sofa!
Last week, for fun, I wrote down "In 7 days I have manifested 1. Chocolate 2. A back rub 3. $20 unexpected money in my hand or bank account. I only told a couple of people. I placed this note in my special Creation Box then let it go. I felt happy all day the day I wrote it but I understand the importance of letting go and trusting The Universe will deliver.
1 day later my daughter came over to visit and had brought chocolate.
3 days later, I won $21.90
and as for the back rub? Every day last week someone had either placed their hand on my back or patted my back!
The Universe manifests the essence of your desire so I'm counting these as my back rub.
I KNOW with all my heart that we create our world. It's how The Universe expands. I'm working on the bigger things and I know they are there waiting for me to get out of my own way.
I love reading everyone's stories here and I hope I'm able to inspire others to never give up.
