Here is my little tomato garden this year. I planted 4 plants and they grew BIGGER than they ever had in all of the years I’ve lived in this house (one plant is over 6 feet tall). I believe that they grew this big because I set the intention of having lots of abundance in my life, and on my vision board I had included 2 big tomato plants with lots of tomatoes overflowing from them. And since I wasn’t attached to the outcome of the tomatoes, I believe that is why those plants grew so HUGE, because I set the intention and let go.
This isn’t the first time I’ve noticed things manifesting so easily in my life either. A few years ago when I created my vision board, I set the intention of my kids getting more involved with extracurricular activities. I put pictures of kids playing different sports on my board, and left it at that. One picture I included with the intention of it representing my older son, and the other picture represented my younger son.
Guess what? My younger son took on the position that was in the picture I had for him. And my oldest son signed -up for a sports team and the number on his jersey was the only number visible of all of the players in the picture I had intended for him. And I didn’t even realize the connection until after they had already been playing on their teams for a few months!
How can these things manifest so easy, yet when I want that dream house or vacation in Bali, it doesn’t seem to show up? Well, there are two reasons, I believe. First when looking at those objects that you REALLLYYY want, and you are attached to it, part of you focuses on the fact that you don’t have it yet, and maybe even beats yourself up for it. That doesn’t bring your goal any closer to you.
Second, perhaps there are others involved who don’t have the same aspirations, so there is contrasting energy around that goal. For instance, I’m dreaming about a new house, yet my husband would rather stay right where we are. So until his energy shifts and he’s open to the idea of moving, it’s not going to happen. He’s resisting the possibility of a new home.
So, that’s what keeps some of our dreams at bay… now how can we bring more of what we want closer to our reality, to manifest more easily?
1. Set the Intention.
Declare what it is that you want. It’s that simple.
2. Let go of attachment to whether or not it happens.
Just trust, or even forget about what it is that you’ve intended. Let the universe do it’s thing.
3. Be a vibrational (energetic) match for your desired outcome.
If you want a trip to Bali, because when you are there, you see yourself having this incredibly relaxing vacation, just connecting with the ocean, having down time, being pampered. And overall you feel relaxed and delightful. The more you feel relaxed and delightful in your life now (before Bali), the closer you are to getting to Bali.
Be patient too. Those big aspirations do come true, just maybe not in the timeframe you thought they would. Three years ago, I set the intention of doing a joint venture with someone who was very important to me at the beginning of my spiritual journey, and that is just coming to fruition now. And five years ago I set the intention of paying off the mortgage of my house within 5 years and things are coming together for me to have that happen in the coming weeks. I set the intentions, and I was attached to the outcome at the beginning, then I forgot about them… and let the universe do the hard work. And now, those dreams are happening.
So, let go and see what easily manifests in your life.
