One of the things I discovered during my manifesting process is that I was forgetting to do one of the most important things in manifesting what I want. The missing thing is to GIVE THANKS FOR IT!
Even if you have not received your desire. Even if you cannot see it or do not know HOW it is going to manifest. Give thanks for the answer and the happy, rich, perfect solution long before you receive it and do this every day. What you want is on the way and it will manifest under divine timing and in the perfect ways!
The universe/God knows what you want even before you ask for it and the way out has already been prepared - along with any answers or solutions you need. NOTHING is withheld from us. WE hold back our good and the answers and solutions with our lack of faith and words we speak and think. Our positive beliefs and positive thoughts, actions and beliefs can speed up the manifestation of anything we want. Our only job is to have faith, visualize it as already occuring in your life, prepare to receive it (pretend you already have it), do affirmations and/or mbo's affirming it into reality (the spoken word carries an amazing amount of manifestation power! Your words can hurt, kill, destroy, build up and bring down people and manifest your desires or push them away). Give thanks for it and have gratitude for everything that is currently in your life (esp the things you want to be freed from). Also, releasing any resentment or unforgiveness towards yourself or others that you want to be freed from will also release any blocks and speed up the process.
I have also found calling forth AA Michael and AA Raphael to be an immense help in releasing all my blocks and cutting cords to toxic people and old conditions from my past, etc. I have called on AA Michael so much lately that I actually saw a glimpse of him the other night. I have never seen an angel before so this was very interesting. I thought it was my imagination until my friends pet perked up, got scared and bolted out of the room the minute I saw AA Michael. I think he is living in my apt now! lol! I think he got tired of me calling him all the time and he thought he would just come live with me. Now if he would just pay some of the rent! lol!
Also, I have been inspired to re-read the whole CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD - VOLUME 1-3 by Neale Donald Walsch
and here is the amazon link for not just this book, but other books by this author related to the conversations with god series Amazon.com: conversations with god book 1 2 3: Books
On page 11 of the first volume - Neale asks God: "Does that mean I cannot ask for anything I want? Are you saying that praying for something actually pushes it away from us?
God then replies: This is a question which has been asked thruought the ages - and has been answered whenever it has been asked. Yet you have not heard the answer, or will not believe it.
The question is answered again (God is very patient with all of us! lol!
in todays terms, and todays language thusly: You will not have that for which you ask, nor can you have anything you want. This is because your very request is a statement of lack and your saying you want a thing only works to produce that precise experience - wanting - in your reality.
I bolded this because I think this is such an important paragraph that a lot of us (myself included) tend to forget! THE CORRECT PRAYER
is therefore NEVER a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude (now I know why many of my prayers go on for years and not get answered because I keep ASKING). When you thank God in ADVANCE for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you, in effect, acknowledge that it is there .... in effect. Thankfulness is thus the MOST POWERFUL statement to God; an affirmation that even before you ask, I have answered! Therefore NEVER supplicate - Appreciate!
(my words: and have gratitude and give thanks for what God has already given you - for all your past, present and future good)
This is really an amazing 3 part series (I think God inspired me to start this thread! lol!) about God and his role in our lives and his role and our role in the whole manifestation process. Your views on God and the way he/she works in our lives will really be changed when you read this book. You will come to see God as a very kind, loving entity who wants people to succeed, be happy and be rich. God is NOT the vengeful God most religions would have you believe.
You also do NOT need to earn God's love or approval to receive answers to your prayers as many religions would have you believe - you are perfect just the way you are! I totally believe everything I learned in church contributed on some level to my unworthiness, undeserving and not loving and approving of myself issues. I still remember the lutheran religion telling me that if I did not finish communion I would be going straight to hell. You DON'T tell that to a little kid! Well, I guess I will be going to hell because I found communion boring and I never finished it! lol! The conversations with god series really allowed me to have a greater love and understanding of God and to help release a lot of my old beliefs about God and I HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND this entire series to everyone!
