Tic…Boom!

I have mentioned that my son plays football in previous posts. Friday I took him to a new trainer. Obviously playing football for fun and making it your entire focus are two different things.

This trainer was an hour from our house. It seems as though everything football oriented is over and hour from our house. The traffic can make it more and usually does.

In the past I would have complained about this. I’m not a fan of getting on the highway or driving, which is why I like big cities where I can walk…or the south where I can ride a bike. I will most definitely live in one of these places when he is done with school; the city might come sooner if the commute gets to be too much for him next year. But since I have been focusing less on outcomes and more on the present moment, he is happy here, so this is where we stay.

When I am not focused on me, I am focused on him. What is it he requires? Gain more weight; make more food. Workout more; take him to the gym. Getting more sleep; wake from my slumber to get him off his computer, which happens to be his only form of a social life due to football. Most days are spent trying to help him reach his goal. Which is easy for me to do, because it’s something I do for myself now and we all need someone in our corner.

So when a guy knows a guy who lives out somewhere near us and not in Jersey, I agreed to take him. I didn’t even think twice about driving to the middle of nowhere! We laughed, shared stories and he even confided in me about one of his friends having a problem and how he was trying to help her.

I enjoyed every minute of being with him; even when he played his music, which I struggle to like sometimes. We even got stuck in traffic but I was so focused on listening to him and seeing how insightful he is, I had a great time.

I share this story with you because I heard this song this morning and it reminded me of another key theme to manifesting. When you have complete trust in the Universe and allow it to bring you what you need instead of chasing after it, things just start to happen for the better. Life gets easier instead of harder.

One coach leads to another coach which leads to something else; something better. Everything aligns so seamlessly, without you even having to do anything. It appears to be simply “gifted” to you.

The auditions have been rolling in for me; really fun ones too, more me. I’ve been selling my cards on all platforms without doing any advertising and I know this has nothing to do with me doing anything. It has everything to do with me doing nothing.

This energy of allowing instead of controlling is paramount to manifesting. When you put something into action that you really want, you are showing the powers that be that you are committed to it. No matter how much you are tested, you stay the course. You keep doing the inner work every time you are tested and you learn to discern very quickly. When you get to this place of inner peace, you are rewarded. It is the tic before the boom.

So if you want to see fireworks in your life, embrace all of the moments throughout the day. Focus on what you have instead of what you have lost and do not give your energy (attention) to anything or anyone who tries to take you back there.

Before you know it, you will be amazed at how seamless life can be. Surrender to what is instead of trying to make it something it is not or ever will be.

I insist on being a part of the journey my son is on, because I want to be there when he makes it to his destination. There will be people along your journey that are not meant to be a part of your destination. It’s okay. We all have our own paths. Don’t try to make someone walk yours with you if they don’t want to or simply can’t. This is one of the main reasons you will not manifest what you want. Your energy is scattered and going backwards instead of forwards.

Find inner peace, stay present and don’t allow anyone to mess with your vibe. If you can do this…Boom! You will be a manifesting magnet.

You get to write the script

Let’s talk about manifesting!

You’ve probably heard of “The Secret” which pretty much kept everything a secret, when it comes to actually manifesting anything at all.

I personally found the book confusing and full of bs. No matter how much I tried to decipher it’s simplicity, it just seemed like a lot of people who were wealthy popping off about how easy it was. It’s been awhile since I read it but I do remember being frustrated by it.

If you watched the video to this song, then you saw that every person in it didn’t let their circumstances get in the way of their success. They actually took them, grew stronger from them and they became one of their driving forces.

So if you are still confused as how to be a magical manifester, this is all you need to know. Your ability to manifest comes from where your focus is. If your focus is on what you want and you commit to staying focused on it, meaning you take steps in the direction of what you want, then you will manifest it.

Here is the twist to manifesting what you focus on: if you focus on something you want and aren’t doing anything to get it, then it will not show up in your life because you are focusing on the lack of it instead of taking action to get it.

It is a union of focus and action. You have to trust your instincts and the inner voice that tells you when to take action and when to sit back and wait. Doing no action gets you no manifestations.

The fact that you can manifest pretty much anything you want is all around you. Even the stuff you didn’t want to manifest. Your focus had to be on it at one point (probably more than you realized) and there it is!

If the average person has 6200 thoughts a day, just imagine how much manifesting you can do! Be mindful of your thoughts. When you catch yourself thinking bad ones, change the channel.

Here is a life hack that worked for me: I once carried a crystal in my pocket for over a year. I can tell you a little about the healing powers of crystals, but only because I put them in every order that is placed through my company. At the time I carried the crystal I thought it looked pretty, but that was all I knew. I just wanted a distraction for when I got triggered by irritating conversation or people. This kept my focus on the crystal, not what was being said or who I was around.

You can bring a crystal anywhere and no one will know it’s there. Just be careful how hard you rub it. Someone might get the wrong idea about you. Some of my favorites are: CRYSTAL QUARTZ (classic), PINK QUARTZ for universal love, TIGERS EYE for releasing fear and of course CITRINE for self esteem. If you want to throw in a piece of GREEN AVENTURINE to attract wealth, go for it.

My ability to manifest shows up all the time, even without the crystals. At this point I totally get it. When I focus on my business I sell cards. When I focus on acting, I get auditions and when I focus on things that bother me, I get more.

Don’t focus on what bothers you! Focus on what you want and then wait for divine inspiration for steps to take towards getting it. And maybe carry a crystal to keep your thoughts happy.
