Manifestation No. 2 - Fish Dead or Alive?
My next manifestation story involves a fish. So rewind to the night before (Saturday)--when I made it back to my aquarium late at night. My aquarium is in my office at work, some 30 miles from my home. I was rearranging the "live rock" in my tank, and plucked out one huge rock and set it aside in a chair. 5-10 minutes later, I picked the huge rock up from the chair and went to place it in the second, side aquarium that I use for a "refugium"--not for livestock coral or fish. As I went to place the rock in the refugium what did I see? To my utter shock and excruciating guilt, I saw my blue tang fish wedged in a crevice in the rock! That meant he or she was out of the water without oxygen for 5-10 minutes! I quickly dropped the tang back in the correct tank of water, but he was stunned, paralyzed, dying, or dead. I "shooed" him a little bit with water, which pushed him back into the rock-sculpture in the middle of tank, where I could no longer see him to learn if he was alive or dead.
I cannot tell you how wracked with guilt and shame I initially was. I felt that I was careless and killed a beautiful creature. There was no way the fish would live--it probably already had brain damage from the lack of oxygen for 5-10 minutes. It probably would die in the moments to come--somewhere beneath the rocks. Then, almost embarrassingly, I thought--wait, let me manifest health for the fish! Initially, I thought it was inappropriate to be thinking of "manifesting" realities at such a time. But then I thought: "What do I have to lose?" So I closed my eyes and visualized that fish as a beautiful, happy, healthy Blue Tang swimming and frolicking in the tank. I imagined it over and over in my mind's eye for a few minutes. But, of course, I couldn't see the fish--it was buried in the cavernous rocks that were sculpted in the tank. So I went home.
The next day, I came back to my aquarium, turned the light on, and began setting up a periodic water change. After about a moment or two, I saw a most beautiful sight! The blue tang was swimming around and frolicking quite energetically and gracefully--just as I had imagined in my visualization! Hooray! My guilt evaporated at once, and I was quite spooked by the power of manifestation. Quite spooked, indeed.
