I had a fun experience last Sunday that reminded me how easy it is to manifest something I want when I’m not really attached to whether it happens or not. Such a funny paradox about manifestation, the more you really, really, want something, the less likely you are to allow it to show up in your life, because really, really wanting something is actually the energy of not believing it’s possible to have that thing in your life.
The story I tell you in my video is based on playfully imagining that something could happen and feeling just how much fun that would be if it really did without any expectation that it would, . . . . and then it did.
After I manifested some help, I proceeded to ride my bike. Waiting in the intense sunlight and heat for yet another stoplight to turn green, I had the thought, “If I could manifest before, why not do it again?” I imagined how great it is not to have to stop at a light. Right after that, I noticed lights were all green for me, but I had to really pick up the pace to get through the light. So I tweaked my imagining some more and thought how pleasant it is to ride comfortably as lights turn green just when I get to them, allowing me to keep pedaling without stopping.
I was having so much fun noticing how the lights would play with me, laughing at how they would turn green right at the last minute. Most of the rest of the ride I was able to hold this state of “playing” with the lights. Several times people I didn’t know honked and waved at me, so I must have been showing the delight on my face as well.
Towards the end of the ride when I was hot and tired, I felt myself shift into “willing” the lights to turn green. Ahhh, there it was. Attached to an outcome, and guess what? Red lights.
It’s a fine line, non-attachment in the midst of desire. It’s about playing in the field of excitement and joy for the fun of imagination, letting “seriousness” about reality drop away, and jumping whole heartedly into our ability to create our very own illusions which we can then call our reality. I’m playing with this. Want to join me?
Integrative Action Steps for your own creative manifestations:
- Start with simple things where you absolutely don’t care one way or the other what happens. Think of it as “building your manifestation muscle.”
- Begin imagining your creation using playfulness, delight and fun as your only motivation.
- Notice only the synchronicities that show up to support your creation and delight in them, letting go of any seduction to look at what doesn’t happen.
- Acknowledge your creations when they show up and express appreciation to the universe/source for support in your co-creation.
