I spend a lot of time manifesting. I spend a lot of time helping others manifest. Manifesting is a normal activity for me and I am always amazed at how well it works for me. Lately, my manifestations have gotten lightening fast. I spend a lot of time thinking about how I manifested the things I did. When I get something particularly fast, I analyze what I may have done differently to get it so quickly and then I share those tips with you. Recently, I noticed a deep connection between integrity and manifesting.
I was recently in a situation where I believe someone took advantage of me. It was the feeling I got in addition to the action that was taken. I'm doing a series of training classes, and as part of that, we have had the locations order in breakfast and lunch for the participants to have more time in training. I have asked them to order, and then payed for it myself (and i will be reimbursed by the client). Most places have ordered lunch around $200 (or less). One place, ordered lunch over $1000! WHAT?!?!? In addition, I kept asking for a receipt, and they never gave it to me, etc, etc.
Now, I am proud to say, I did what I would tell any of you to do:
1. I admitted that I have NO IDEA if they did this on purpose. Maybe this is a normal ordering lunch for them. I do not know what their intentions are, nor will I ever.
2. I noticed the story I was telling myself and asked if I could find facts to tell the EXACT OPPOSITE story, and of course, I could. I could find all the facts to tell the story of how they did this to provide participants with a good lunch to make the training and the company look good, etc.
And, then, this is what I concluded. They may get a very nice free lunch. And, they very well may deserve that very nice free lunch. They may have used this as an opportunity to get what they want (at the expense of someone else). And, if they did, the company will more than likely still pay for it without saying anything to them (a thought that was filling me with fire earlier). If they do, the gain will be a really nice lunch and the loss will be their integrity.
Losing your integrity is one of the most painful ways to be. Your integrity is everything. When manifesting, we tell ourselves a number of things that are not yet real in this 3D world, but that we are connecting with the energy of to be real. Sometimes, I say, I lie to myself for a living. In a post about integrity, this can sound really bad. So, why is it ok with manifesting? Because of the intention behind it. When we manifest, we tell ourselves something to create a desired outcome. Our mind, our body, our cells have to believe what we are saying and feel the way they would feel if we have it. In order to do that, they must connect with our words, thoughts, and feelings.
If our words, thoughts and feelings are unbelievable, because we have used them for short term personal gain, then no matter how well we apply the rules of manifesting, our own body will not believe it and thus will not allow our manifestation to come into reality. This month, I invite you to join me, as I really step up my integrity practice. Everything from complaining, blaming, finding fault, to thinking no one would notice if I just did this one little thing - you are probably right, no one would, but your integrity would suffer. I love to complain in my head. I love to get really dramatic and complain, complain, complain. I think it is ok, it is just in my head... but as Marianne Williamson says, "that is the worst place it can be!". This month, we want to keep "our heads" (i.e., our thoughts) as clean as possible. This month, we want focused thought on that which we do want and to clean out the junky mess of the thoughts that do not serve us and do not create the outcome we desire. It is Fall Cleaning time, y'all (I have been traveling to the South a lot recently). If you are not manifesting your desires, make a list of all of the ways, you are not in integrity in that area of your life, and commit, this month to doing one, simple action to improve your integrity with that area.
