I keep reading about the new moon and manifesting and how it's the perfect time to do so. I went through an entire year doing prayer and meditation rituals for the full and new moons. It became a bit taxing on my perfectionist mentality because I didn't always want to do it on the specific day allotted. It caused stress and annoyance and that's the complete opposite of what it's supposed to do.
This morning I had a conversation with a long lost friend who reminded me of something I had taught her that has manifested into this amazing, incredible life for her. She always thanks me for it but I forget I was the one who told her to do it. She manifested her Perfect Soul mate. I remember watching it all unfold and knowing that somehow it was going to work out. They were living across the country from each other, both in very difficult divorce situations with children who were less than eager to be supportive. Well, let me go back to the manifesting part.
I told her that she needed to make a list. A list of all the qualities she wanted in this person. It was VERY important to not use the word not or doesn't when wording the list. For example....I want a partner who is forgiving instead of I want a partner who doesn't hold grudges.....get the drift? I want a partner who is easy going as opposed to I want a partner who is not controlling. She laughed (that's kinda all we did together to be honest) and I wasn't sure she would do it. I reminded her several times and she'd joke and say well of course he's not here I haven't made my list! Well damned if she finished the list and he showed up shortly after. Her knight in shining armor. Her perfect match! To the outside world it may have seemed doomed from the start or too good to be true or impossible. But nothing is impossible if you truly believe! Six months later she was in a UHaul driving herself to romantic New Jersey (ha!) to live happily ever after. There were still obstacles in the way but that didn't stop our trusty Heroine...she was determined to follow the dream. We fell out of touch and I totally understand it. When you're following the dream you sometimes need to take a step back from people who might make you doubt that the path will work or anyone who could make you feel anything but joy about the path. We both moved across the country and have 3 children each and life gets in the way. Out of the blue yesterday she sent something that touched my heart in a way that she couldn't know I needed and I texted her back to thank her. We had a quick catch up session and not only is her happily ever after happening, they're moving in together this weekend and she is just beyond the moon. All because of faith and a list and intention......Miracles happen every single day!
So....instead of wondering why life isn't going your way think about whether or not you have decided what you want your life to look like. Have you sent clear signals to the Higher powers (I say God, some say universe) about exactly what it is that you want? Do you even know? That's the problem chickadee. You're sending all kinds of *stuff* out there and none of it is bringing you what you want! Make that list! If it's a new job you want write a detailed list of what it looks like! Don't dream small dream BIG. I made a 4 page list once and it was delivered! When I needed a job (after 17 years of being out of the workplace and having kids to drive back and forth to school) I just put it out to God (I didn't even WRITE that one...)that I needed a job that would be flexible and take care of my needs. It took 3 months but it came, as easy as getting a phone call from a friend! Not every wish is granted overnight but divine timing has a place in it all as well. Things need to be adjusted to bring you what you need. New home? Where? What does it look like? How much is it? But the key is to let go after you write it. Some even burn theirs during the new moon. I didn't like that idea because I have a terrible memory and I wouldn't know if I got what I wanted ;) but hey, to each his own!
So, grab your pen, paper and your heart's desires and start deciding what you want.....and than have faith and believe and don't get all caught up in the hows and whens just know.....because after all.....it's just a day in the life!
