What you are doing, not necessarily 'wrong' is expecting it to be on your timetable. I was doing the same when I tried to manifest a red feather. I was looking everywhere. Didn't show. I kept believing in LOA and manifested other things, but my red feather remained allusive. Oneday, several months later when I had forgotten about it, I walked into the bathroom at work and gasped - a red feather, there on the floor of the stall!! I was instantly in tears and awe. Things come when they are ready. Some would say when WE are ready. I have that feather framed and in a place I look often. It's a reminder to me that I can, indeed, manifest anything that's meant for me, but when the Universe is ready, in whatever way is best for me. As they say, the 'how' and 'when' is not up to us. Perfect faith that it will come is what is needed. And that includes the faith that if it hasn't turned up, it's for a good reason. Love and Light to you! Zia
I would like to challenge this if I may...with a happy heart of course.
As I respect your opinion about this matter I disagree with you in regards to your statement:
"It's a reminder to me that I can, indeed, manifest anything that's meant for me, but when the Universe is ready, in whatever way is best for me. As they say, the 'how' and 'when' is not up to us."
YOU can manifest anything weather its meant for you or not. It is not when the Universe is ready. You see the Universe of all that is, gave us the choice. Others know of it as Free Will. How it is BEST for you is entirely up to YOU. The HOW and WHEN is up to YOU. This is where everyone hits the proverbial BRICK WALL when manifesting. They continue to experience LACK. Lack is a fear vibration that holds one back from instant success. You see, what you think about, is what you bring about period. When you interfere with what you think about as a desire, is when you cause your desire to take a different course. Either a slow boat from China or a rocket ship at light speed. The Creator of all that is knows the perfect mode of delivery. Its when you interfere with your thoughts about the delivery,... is what alters the delivery.
If it has not turned up...(its not for a good or bad reason)...its because you altered that delivery.
It has nothing to do with readiness...(when they or you are ready). IF you sent out the thought to the Universe, its coming weather you are ready or not. Its been launched....lol
So the question is...Where does this FAITH you talk of come into the picture. Faith means to have
sincerity of intentions (when you make a request) and trust the delivery entity, in this case the Universe, with a strong conviction.
Having Faith is to not interfere. Oh sure you can change your mind, however...every time you do you slow the process as in changing the order of things.
Blessing and thank you for the conversation, Jilly
What can I say? I respectfully disagree. I believe in both Free will and divine will. And I do not lack. Nobody does, really. If I trust in a higher power to know better than I, I am even more free. I am free to want, manifest, etc, but...I can surrender knowing I don't know everything that's good for me. That's how I define God - Good. Anyways, far too complicated and philosophical really, belief. If every thought I had came back, launched, as you say...I'd be in big trouble having been raised as a fearful codependent afraid of just about everything and with a super powerful imagination to imagine it! So, there you go. As with everything in life, take what you need, leave the rest! I enjoy dialogue and the meeting of minds, too, so thanks for responding. : ) Z
In what you have just said you painted a picture for me that you are not a creator. You surrender the creativity to the GOD you believe in. In doing so you have just imposed LACK upon yourself. You are lacking creativity. You are lacking the power to know what is good for you. You see, you are also GOOD as you describe your GOD. If you see your creator as knowing better than you...that is you lacking to know what is best for you. Its what it is. Only you can change that for you.
I (Jilly) am a co-creator with my creator. I am in his/her image. I an a unit united to the collective consciousness of all that is. I am not my past experiences or belief as you are.
If you were raised a fearful codependent, that doesn't mean you still are. Only you know that. If you think you still are a fearful codependent, then that is what you still are. Again, only you know that.
You take what you need and leave the rest you will continue to have to sort through the mess.
You see things philosophical and it will be philosophical for you.
You see complicated and you will receive more complicated.
That my friend, is your free will.
Respectfully and in Peace, J
Yeah, you don't seem to understand the words I am saying so I'm not going to argue about who I am, how I perceive myself, and whether I lack or not! I did say 'was', though, referring to the past. Not now. And the lack of creativity comment is just hilarious! Again, don't have to explain myself to you but...what assumptions you make, and how wrong. Whatever works for you, is good for you. And for me, me. Joy to you.
I am new to the 100 day challenge community, but this morning I was perusing through this discussion; Manifesting a feather! And I thought ok I'll have a go at it, so after about 2 hours I walked through my office and something caught my eye! It was a plastic container full of art stuff and there it was in plain sight a bright blue feather OMG, now on seeing the feather I recall having seen the box before, so I thought that maybe this isn't my feather, that just maybe because I was on the look out for a blue feather that I noticed it! I'm not sure, either way I'm taking it as my first manifestation! I am so excited ... I hadn't set my date yet but now I am it will tomorrow December 17th, 2010.
guys sorry to sound dense what is the manifest a feather thing can somebody explain it to me please ;) ive been looking on line but its just treads with people saying it has or hasnt worked for them.
