The Miracle of Manifestation: It isn’t Such a Secret
The dusting of snow around the lawn this morning reminds me of a time last January when meteorologists were forecasting a big snowstorm for the following day. Like this year, there we had not yet been any school cancellations and, oh, how my sons were wishing for a snow day! My older son, who was almost fourteen, had heard that when you wear pajamas thoroughly you’ll get a snow day. He came downstairs appropriate with pockets flapping as well as the skiers on his flannel pajamas no more visible-they were facing inside. At 6:15 a.m. the subsequent morning, peering in to the pre-dawn darkness, we saw no snow on the ground and only a few flakes falling. Seeing my son’s crestfallen face, I suggested that we turn on the TV news to find the latest update. The weatherman was still being calling for around a foot of snow in our area, beginning in the morning and lasting most of the day. There were a lot of school closings scrolling on the bottom with the screen. We watched, holding our breath, until they finally reached our town and we saw, “Closed.” I wish I’d had a camera handy to capture the look on my son’s face because he exclaimed, “It worked! We have a snow day!” — Manifestation Miracle
Just after this we watched the video “What the Bleep Do We Know!?” which is the “magical” power of thought and energy in terms of quantum physics. This coming year we’ve all watched “The Secret” which demystifies the Law of Attraction. Although I’ve been learning about and discussing manifestation as well as the Law of Attraction for years, he’s in the age where he rolls his eyes and probably thinks, “What the bleep does she know!?” once i bring up such topics. However, having his ski team coach show “The Secret” within a recent practice was enough to grab his attention. Between many of these experiences, I think my son has begun to grasp that we do create our own reality.
Just in case manifestation piques your interest too, here’s a basic outline of steps in the process:
1. DESIRE The procedure often begins with dissatisfaction, an observation of something that’s less than ideal, and clarity by what it is that you do want and the reason why you want it. This desire turns into a request. (From a spiritual perspective, it might seem of it as putting in an order with the Universe, making a prayer of petition, or calling upon your angels and guides for help.)
2. THOUGHT In case your desire is motivated by lack or fear, it’s important to reframe it into a positive thought, since what we think about is what we result in. In my son’s case, a preliminary want “for school to become closed tomorrow” focuses on school and is better reframed as “I need a snow day” focusing on snow. Additionally you must believe in the possibility of what you want coming true. You must expect miracles before they could happen. One technique at this time is to create a mental picture of the desired outcome.
3. FEELING As powerful as affirmations are, thoughts alone may not be enough to make your dreams be realized. Combine your thoughts with positive feelings, however, and also you you’ll put the Law of Attraction to work for you. Allow yourself to steep in the feelings of euphoria, excitement, or peace that you’ll have when you get what you desire. The larger vibration created by the power of these feelings becomes a powerful magnet, pulling what you need your way.
4. RECEIVING This final stage is approximately being open to but not forcing an outcome. Additionally it is not a passive process-you don’t want to watch opportunities pass by you. Instead, you want to capture appropriate action and keep to the doors that open for you personally. — Manifestation Miracle
