! I LOVE to manifest. I truly love it. I started manifesting, like many people, after watching the movie, The Secret. In the movie, I heard many people, including Jack Canfield, speak about the power of the Law of Attraction (LOA for short) and how to manifest anything you want into being. He talked about choosing one thing, that is so big, that if you achieve it, you know this principle works. I chose to have someone propose to me. Don't judge! I was new to this whole thing, and I really wanted to get married! So, that is what I chose. That was in August. I was not dating anyone and did not have a prospect on the scene. Through a series of crazy events, during the month of November (same year, so 3 months later), I had two men propose to me. I learned the second rule of the Law of Attraction, which is, "holy crap this stuff works, so be clear and specific on what you really want!" Turns out, I did not just want someone to propose to me, I wanted the right someone to propose to me.
I tell this story, because, my path to becoming a Master Manifestor, was by throwing things out there I wanted and totally did not believe were possible. And, because I had faith that this worked, and also had no clue how to really do it, I just kept practicing. There is a Target near my house in Maryland; it is my happy place. When I am not happy, I drive to Target. Within 3 minutes of entering the store, I am happy again. There is a big parking garage across the street that I do not love. Maybe you know how this goes, when you are not happy, and then to get happy, you have to do something that makes you not happy... it puts a damper on the whole happiness activity! But, this parking garage has a handful of street level spots - easy in and out and quick entry to Target. For ages, I would go to the garage and NEVER find an open spot in this little area. Then, I watched the Secret. A man talked about using the Law of Attraction to find parking spots and I thought of Target. Since that day, I almost always (I'd guestimate 99% of the time) get parking spots in that one area near Target. I am talking Black Friday, Day after Christmas, Saturday morning or afternoon, almost always.
The number one mistake I see people making with applying the Law of Attraction to their lives is that they make it too hard. I started out by wanting to be proposed to and... parking spots. Had I only done wanting someone to propose to me, I don't think I would be a Master Manifestor today. I had to add in the "small" stuff and get wins to keep it going. Here is my question to you - if you practice the Law of Attraction, when was the last time you used it to just have a little fun?
These days, I manifest all kinds of crazy things - little and big. People calling me back, flowers, $70K, new contracts, etc. But, I still have fun with manifesting almost daily! I still manifest great parking, green lights, a song to come on the radio. And, the other night, I had a LOT of fun with my manifesting. We went to see a play and it was in a building that also had a bar, which hada video gambling machine. I saw this man sitting at one intensely playing. I had seen these before and played once, just to try it. And, it did not work out well, but I had read someone you have to play the machine someone else lost at to win, and this man's expression told me, he was losing. So... I thought, I'll try it out! I vowed to spend no more than $5 and just to HAVE FUN! I put $1 in the machine and was down to .02 cents left, when I won and was now up to .07 cents. Then, I stopped, and said, "I am a Master Manifestor, what do I want to create here?". I decided, I wanted my dollar back (rookie manifesting move... but I was totally not attached to that - should have gone for $10!). Played again, lost, played again, won, up to .53 cents (wow!), played a few more times and BAM - up to $1.05! I cashed out since I met my goal. That's a key too - I declared what I wanted. When I got it, I was thrilled, celebrated and moved on!
I told the friends we were with, and they couldn't believe how "lucky" I was (it's not luck, its the LOA). Now, they wanted to try, they put a dollar in, and I decided to put a dollar in with them (for them to use) but it somehow turned into us playing together. Every time I hit the button, we would go up! I stopped and said to my friend, "Wait! What do you want to manifest here?" He wanted to manifest $10 and I thought, and so it is and so it shall be! Long story short, I ended the night with $8 (my half) from my $1 investment (I got my first dollar back so from my second dollar investment). We won $16 that night in total! He spent $2, I spent $1. And.. I had fun. I realized, us Master Manifestors should be playing the lottery more often ;) Last night, I played a game of darts and I did the same thing. I manifested winning. I played with a bunch of seasoned dart players, mine, normally, bounce off the board. I was trailing the entire time, and then in one hand, I miraculously hit all the numbers and WON! And, again, most importantly, I had FUN!
What is the result of all of this fun? Today, when I put out big things I want to create this week, it is a done deal. It is done because my manifesting vibe is so high. I have complete confidence in my ability, over Video Gambling and a darts game. Two things that are not normal activities for me but that I had fun doing. I applied my manifesting skills in a fun way and it paid off. And, now, I feel like I am on a manifesting roll and everything I touch turns to gold!
Before I manifested my way into Times Square for New Year's Eve, a contract with Disney, the hottest guy in the room to walk over to me and ask me out, 10K out of the blue, and a free Disney cruise, I was manifesting parking spaces at Target which delighted me no end. Use your manifesting skills to have some fun and watch the little (and big) things pour in and everything you touch turn to gold!
As I think back on my journey, I think to the car ride where my eldest sister introduced me to the movie, The Secret. It was the first time I heard Jack Canfield speak and he talked about choosing to manifest something so big it would change your life, and I chose getting proposed to. That one event, changed my entire life. I signed up for his Breakthrough to Success training, the same year, went through his Train the Trainer program and within that year, my entire life looked completely different (including moving from MD to CA)!
I was honored to get to see a pre-screening of Soul of Success, the movie about Jack Canfield's Life. I cried numerous times. I invite each of you to get to know this extraordinary man. I know him as, "Jack Canfield". His story, takes you back to when he was just Jack, applying these principles, just like you and me and having wins and losses along the way. And, how by practicing all the principles we talk about he became, "The Jack Canfield" that we know and love.
You can register for a free screening for this movie here.
