I’m not sure if he was the first to say it, but that’s who I remember saying it, and where it finally made sense.
If you wake up saying “what fresh hell will today bring”. The universe will gladly show you. “How much more insane can xyz person be?” The universe will show you.
Resistance is a form of force. It takes a lot of energy. The universe is annoyingly literal. It’s like Sheldon, it doesn’t grasp sarcasm.
So… instead, think of manifesting like moving your hand. Your mind sends impulses that tell your nervous system to move your hand. Voila! Your hand moves. You don’t sarcastically tell your hand to move and expect your foot to. Manifesting isn’t any different.
We tend to be “cautious” when we really want something. Not wanting to get our hopes up. But that tells the universe we aren’t really into whatever “it” is. We are like that guy you met online,who’s not responding, but seemed totally in to the date. Mixed signals. So you know what? Grow a pair and be excited.
Don’t worry about all the details, those will fall in place. See yourself in that new job, see yourself in that new relationship. See yourself happy…. that’s the key. If you are happy, yo are so much more valuable to the universe. Be happy and excited, and it will all fall in to place.
Otherwise you are no better than Mr Wishy Washy.
What if instead of thinking we can fortell the future, we realize we are manifesting it with our thoughts? So if we predict things will go well they will! Instead of trying to predict they won’t go our way, then living that self fulfilling profecy.
