no intention, but manifestation anyway
A friend told me about how she freaked out when a coyote crossed paths with her. And that's the end of it. The thought of a coyote never came to mind again. A couple of days later, I was driving home from work and saw a pack of three coyotes. Up until that point, I have never seen nor talked about coyotes for years (with the exception of my friend's story a couple days earlier of course).
This is just one example. I've probably had five coincidences similar to this within the past couple of months. What I find interesting is how the random subjects I discuss seem to materialize a short time later. It's like intention/manifestation without the intention. I discuss whatever subject for several minutes at most. The subject then manifests a short time later even though I put absolutely no thought into it after the subject was discussed.
It seems that the manifestations easily occur with subjects I don't care for. For instance, I visualized a coyote while my friend told me about her experience with one. And that's it. I did not put any energy or effort into it. Again, I didn't even think about the coyote after. Now, with this in mind, I want to experiment and try something different.
I have intentions that have not yet manifested. Perhaps I'm putting too much conscious thought into it. When I visualize what I want to manifest, I see, hear, and feel as if my intention has successfully manifested. I do this every night before I sleep. After my experiences mentioned above, I feel that perhaps they are signs for me to try something different. Rather than putting conscious thought into an intention, I will instead go about doing so in a way similar to the coyote example.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can go about doing so?
Yes, I've had similar experiences. I think visualizing is very powerful, both conciously and subconciously. You might want to experiment with that. Also the outcome can be surprising. Visualize diamonds and what manifests could be a broken car window. "Diamonds" all over my back seat. This happened to me.
The law of attraction simply states that like attracts like. The thoughts you think are attracting other thoughts, not just those thoughts that you define as formal "intentions". Also, sometimes defining formal "intentions" is just trying too hard, or trying to use willpower, and it just creates an opportunity to create resistance. Many of us are too attached to the regular stuff we want to create and think its all that, like money (which is just pieces of paper that represent a medium of exchange of value, but they're just pieces of paper, it is in our heads that the importance of money is created). So, seek detachment. The chapter on detachment in Seven Spiritual Laws of Success (search my old posts, you'll find a link to it, or just google it) and Power of Now is about that sort of stuff.
I'm noticing how I'm creating random things. Things with no purpose.
It's like I'm creating all the time. I used to think everything was a sign, a glimpse of something bigger, but I'm not sure now. It's like if I think "wow, rember that old tv show from a million years ago" someone will walk up to me and bring up that old tv show, from a million years ago.
What does that mean? In itself it has no significance.
At this point I have accepted that when I think of something, I am most likely going to see some sort of reverberation regarding it. Whether it's a major life decision or a song with a really obscure name that just appears in my ears after me thinking of it. I thought there was something larger, pulling me towards it. But if I'm creating 24/7 then I'm just pulling me towards myself.
I want to hear someone's name because it will make me think that person, is thinking of me too. But now I realize, I can hear the name just by asking to hear the name. That by itself is freaky, but it doesn't imply connection with the other person.
Growing pains. :rolleyes:
The past few days all I've thought about is focus and attention...
Your examples ring true with me, if I hear the name chris, say, on the tv and think hey that's my name, I'll see it like 15 more times on the tv in the next few days. By removing my attention from it, it'll stop...
My goal is to keep my attention focused on something like prosperity or good health to try and experience those things right now...
I experienced very much the same in the past. And I took it as signs when I started out myself, like the whole universe was pointing to something, but really after a while I thought that it just seemed to be pointing to myself, like I was seeing the echo of myself everywhere.
I can't say I like that notion much, it feels like I'm just running into myself all the time. And what's the good of that? It reminds me of a dream I had a long time ago, where I'd prayed to be able to see reality with God's eyes, and suddenly saw that all was me, that all other people and all there is was just me, and that I created them to be many instead of being one, like a kid who talks to its own hand, imagining it's a creature apart from it, you know like a finger puppet, and in my dream I freaked out and wanted to get back into my limited human perspective and I remember waking up and being overjoyed to be just human and not God and to be one of many individuals, to be separate.
LoA and IM just seems to skim the top of things somehow, they're fun to use but the underlying truth when ever it seeps into my awareness frightens some part of me, and I believe it's my ego, but the fear is pretty real. It's like IM is fine as long as it serves my human desires, my ego purposes, it's okay to manifest stuff I like on a limited basis.
But there was a time when I moved so much in tune that the reality around was like one song, like the whole universe was a living responsive thing and not solid but liquid or even less than liquid. And I was scared to death, cause everything around seemed to resonate to my being, and I felt a huge responsibility crushing down on me, and I didn't know what to do and was scared to make one little step at all. I just wanted to hide away in a white room with no contact to the world at all, and never ever move again, to make sure I didn't do wrong and to stay away from this feeling of the whole universe resonating to my existence. And I believe it was really my ego and resistance I ran into at that point full force.
But if all is well, if all is as it's supposed to be, isn't the ego then the loyal watchdog of the reality created? To keep up the self-induced illusion? Alan Watts said existence is a joyful game, the Hindu Gods represent the same principle. If the fact that all is one would become general awareness, the illusion would end and that joyous game would end like a Hide and seek game being over. God created the illusion of separatedness like he created all else there is, and then it must have been him to put the ego there as well for a purpose, and to me that purpose was the game itself which depended on the illusion of seperatedness.
Now I feel I can't but move in the direction laid out, I'm moving into this awareness whether I like it or not, shying away from hurdles like a horse and then coming back to them. It's like a growth process I dont think I could fight like the guy in the movie who chose to stay small. And the world as I see it is moving from separatedness to Unity on all levels, and yet all that there is depends on duality, on poles, on the attachment and forces that form between separate entities.
I know I'm rambling but the movement to unity as it shows in the beliefs underlying LoA and IM actually feels like a return trip home to the source, like creation was packing together and the game coming to a close. And since I do believe that God intended creation to be a joyous, fantastic experience I feel a bit sorry about that.
It probably might take a very long time for human standards for it all to come together again, and I guess the return trip home is supposed to be a joyous fantastic experience as well, and who knows we'll probably all reach the awareness of unity at some time before creation comes full circle, and it won't just be using IM and LoA but I wouldn't even put it past God that we'll be able to fully do things like telekinesis or these things as we near our source.
So it's not like we're supposed to break into misery about the world coming to a close, and I guess the best thing to go about it is to relax into the experience and let it be, but there it is, and I do wonder about it.:rolleyes:
I find that the power of electro-magnetism in your thoughts is powerful, because idle thoughts get manifested rather easily. What you can do when you don't want to attract negative thoughts, such as facing off with a pack of coyotes, is whenever such a topic about meeting with coyotes is discussed with another person, cross your legs or hands. I studied from a mind reader that when you cross your legs or hands, you cut off the vibrations from your thoughts. Whenever I am in an argument and the other person say awful things, I do exactly that - cross my legs or hands to prevent myself from manifesting those negative thoughts.
