A place where Empaths can be themselves :)
One of the most powerful things to understand about manifestation is that what comes to be in your life began with a thought, feeling or action by You. Compelling, isn't it? The wonderful person you met, the great new job with full benefits, or the perfect house with all of that closet space and the finished basement, all began with your thoughts. Did you pat yourself on the back? Go ahead. Please give credit where it is due! On the other hand, the lack of funds, break-up, and business standstill are also of your making. How does one harness this powerful tool to create the things that are wanted, instead of the things that aren't? The answer is by becoming more in tune with your thoughts, feelings, situations, and actions. The more aware you are of where your thoughts are wandering to, the more control you will have over what is being manifested.
Ben is one of a growing number of work from home dads. It is his responsibility to take care of two children under the age of four each day, while running his successful web design business. Is it challenging? Absolutely, but Ben has managed quite nicely by making manifestation work for him. His sons used to pick the most inopportune time to make noise, wreak havoc, and well...act like toddlers! But now this rarely occurs because Ben takes the time throughout his day to focus his thoughts on what actions he would like to see occur quiet play, easy nap-time routines, and uneventful meals, and it works! No longer does Ben have to hide in the bathroom to take important business calls. He has effectively managed to create the work environment that he needs.
Manifestation requires time, patience and practice. It can be difficult to change bad habits and to train yourself to think differently, but so rewarding when the effort is made. So begin manifesting the things that you want by making that mental shift. Start small if you have to, but start today. Focus on what you want, instead of what you don't have, always keeping your eyes on the goal. Remember to look for and appreciate what is manifesting (going back to the definition the things you request will show up clearly and in plain sight), you just have to identify them as what you asked for, so be careful what you ask for. Also remember to show gratitude as your dreams and desires appear. Remember attraction, the more gratitude (positive energy) that us shown, the more positive energy that will flow back to you. With all of this positive imagery and energy, success will abound. So, start using these tips now. You'll be manifesting a great deal more of what you want. I guarantee that you will be impressed by the fruits of your effort.
What made me think of this today was two events that happened that made me say... WOW!! This is getting easier! I like to manifest Easy World where everything is EASY! I try to encourage the people close to me to think about Easy World when I see them stepping into Difficult World. Easy World is simple. When you notice yourself or someone around you talking about something that seems difficult, I put the breaks on my thoughts and say... "I choose to live in Easy World where everything is easy." Your manifestations are really an answer to prayer. Prayer is thought with an intent. Prayer is letting God know what you REALLY desire. The words we speak and the thoughts we have are creating.
Here is an example: Today I was talking to my sister on the phone after she got home from a couple of days of work at the hospital. She had to spend her sleep time there 2 days in a row because of the snow. When she got home from her long drive home she called me. She could not get up her driveway because she has a long steep driveway and it was covered in snow. She tried to drive up the driveway but her truck started to slide sideways back down the hill. She decided to park at the bottom of the driveway and walk to the house. She got all the bags that she could carry and took her long hike up the hill. While I was talking to her she mentioned that she forgot something down in her truck but she did not want to make the long track down the hill and back up because she was so tired. I always laugh when she tells me this stuff because Easy World always works so good on her. I giggled as she was ranting about it and said... "You live in Easy World where everything is easy!" I can sense her rolling her eyes but she then stops and says... "Yeah, I live in Easy World where everything is easy." I then told her that she wont have to walk back down to her truck because she will find what she needs in her house close by. She laughs at me then and says "yeah, magically." I said "Yep, Like magic." After we hang up she sent me a text a couple of minutes later saying "Easy World just came to me! It came from nowhere, I found what I forgot in my truck right here!!" It is just a matter of choosing what your thoughts are. It is a powerful tool!
Here is another example: My daughter went to a restaurant after she took her husband to the doctor. There was no real good news from the doctor but I kept encouraging her that she is taken care of. She is watched over and everything will fall into place. I have been praying that she would see that her and her husband are so loved and cared for and that everything was going to be alright. After they ordered their dinner, she wondered how much money it would cost to eat out. She was not sure if she had enough cash but figured that she could tap into her bank account. They said their blessing before the food came and sat to talk while waiting for the food. When the waitress came to bring them their food, she told my daughter and her husband that the man that was sitting next to them had paid for their food because he was happy to hear them say their blessing before eating. She told me that it lifted her spirits so much to have such a gift given to her at such a needed time. She said that it gave her the encouragement that everything was going to work out alright with her husband because she felt loved and cared for. I love that she got a big hug from God today when she needed the most.
It is so important to pay attention to the thoughts we have. We are creating with every thought that we have. Thoughts are energy. I have noticed that my manifestations are coming easier. I try to watch what I think closely. I do not do it to a point where I am paranoid. I just try to think happy thoughts. I try to think of things that I desire. Things that make me happy. I encourage others to see the brighter side. The more you practice doing this, the easier it gets and the better results you get. It is amazing. The next time you find yourself speaking words of things you do not desire, stop, and change your words and thoughts. It is simple once you get out of the habit. Someone I know always tells me "I do not have enough time." I hear it come out of their mouth over and over again. After a few times I stop them and say, "Really, you don't have enough time? Say it again because I see that your manifestation is working even though you say you do not want it to happen, you are creating what you are speaking." They then reset and change their words. Just take a second and reset. Notice the words you speak. Most of the time we speak the thoughts on our minds.
Soooo... to get clair information, are we manifesting our request for information?
Thinking about this, I'm guessing yes. And it'd be really interesting I think to check the personality types of the clair cogs and see if it correlates. Personally, I value information and truth etc above comfort and other things in life, so I can easily imagine the request for information being very clear, even before I knew about any of this. If so, its an interesting area to explore, because it could allow clair knowing to become quite targeted. As is - though intermittent - it surfaces when needed/called upon and I can see that being a clear/clair request as well.
If this is true, then clair knowing is not a unique trait, but open to all who ask. That to me feels more elegant and cool than it being a clair-cog club. If so, does this extend more broadly to other gifts in this arena? Given that belief is the key, that again makes sense. Which would make all of this less genetic based/innate and more personality driver -- with certain personalities more likely to be open to this and capable of putting forth the clear requests (with and without outside help, which can also be attracted.)
Cool (and thanks!) Interested in any thoughts others want to offer...
I would say you hit the head on the nail Tim. I have been trying to tell others for a long time that "gifts" are not necessarily given to only a select few, but that a select few know how to use the gifts they have. That would include myself, which I am sure I have failed to recognize some things even now.
I am of the belief that certian parts of empathy are indeed genetic, in the way that it is represented and intrepreted by the nervous system, as would be an aptitude for math or science, but that any and all who are willing to put forth the effort can tap into these gifts. It is really just that so many have been so afraid for so long, of their own lights. I still can't fathom the idea of not dreaming in color, or seeing those lights around others the same way I do. Honestly, we are all unique, but if we believe, we can pick and choose whatever gifts we so desire.
