I haven’t been feeling inspired to post card readings as much lately. Unless the message I channel through them is extremely positive, I find myself not wanting to tune into it and not wanting my readers to do so either. (I want only the very best and happiest outcomes for each and every one of you.) But there is another very important reason for this as well, and it is that I’m feeling much more inspired to create my day from an intentional place rather than looking at it as governed by some outside force that I tune into to predict how it’s going to unfold.
I like to wake up and intend my day to go well. While there are still days that seem to go sideways, I find my life feeling much smoother and more satisfying than it ever has in the past. One of the Law of Attraction exercises I found on a very cool YouTube channel is to make a “wishlist” of items that you want in your day. They can be anything, but it’s best if they are things you aren’t very attached to. They need to still be things that you want or would like, but not to a point where you would sit and wonder why they aren’t showing up or feel upset if they didn’t. One suggestion on the channel was free coffee/food, but you can manifest money showing up in ways you haven’t thought of before or even compliments from other people. The only “rule” with the exercise is, when you’re making your list, you write it in present tense. (Writing “I am going to receive free coffee” can keep the manifestation in the future, whereas writing about it in the here and now makes it more likely that you’ll experience it.) Here is an example of my wishlist:
- I receive free coffee and lunch.
- Someone tells me I look beautiful.
- Everyone around me is in a great mood.
- I receive a text message from someone specific, and the content of the message is loving and makes me feel good.
They all happened. Yes, even the text message from the exact person I wanted it from. They didn’t all happen on the same day, but they were pretty close together. Last week, someone at work offered to buy me a coffee on a day that I was feeling stressed. This week, the free lunch happened while everyone around me was in a good mood, and on the same day, someone also bought me a protein shake from one of my favorite places. I have been complimented on my looks several times this week, and even when I’m alone looking at myself in the mirror, I can genuinely say I like what I see there (not prompted by the compliments).
When learning to manifest intentionally, it is important to be open to the way the universe might orchestrate certain events that you desire. This means the items on your wishlist can come at different times and in ways that you didn’t expect. It is also important not to create any stories about the things you don’t want that may occasionally show up in your reality. For instance, “I’m not manifesting anything on my list because I suck at manifesting,” is a story. You’re attaching meaning to an event in a way that contributes to your feeling down and discouraged about your ability to be an intentional creator. Don’t worry about what you did wrong to create an unwanted manifestation. Wondering what went wrong leads you to create more stories, which create more beliefs that aren’t always helpful.
When you begin building some momentum as you intentionally manifest, and you start seeing things on your list show up, you’ll also find that you create cool things that you didn’t put on your list, passing thoughts that show up in reality. As an example, there is a bench outside my building that got knocked over one day when the wind was very strong. Several weeks went by, and no one put the bench upright. I didn’t give it much thought or think to go move it myself. Then one day last weekend, I was standing at my kitchen window, looking outside at that bench and thinking, “I wonder if anyone will ever set that upright.” I walked away and forgot about it. It was only an hour later that I walked by the window and happened to glance outside… the bench was upright.
I hadn’t said anything about the bench to anyone or done anything that could have prompted this. Literally all I did was I had a passing thought where I imagined the bench upright, and an hour later, it was – after weeks of being turned over.
Starting small, manifesting things that aren’t of utmost importance to you, can be very helpful in building your momentum and belief in the Law of Attraction. Keep in mind that “not important” doesn’t have to mean you don’t want it. Who wouldn’t want free coffee (or your beverage of choice) and food, or a nice compliment? Whereas trying to manifest a lotto win or your crush may be harder, while they are still possible, because these have more of your emotions and beliefs attached to them. The lotto or your crush may not be the best to try as you are just starting out. Try making your own wishlist and let me know what you think!
