Have you ever asked The Universe for something and never received it?
If so, did you ever stop to think that The Universe actually did send you what you wanted but it was your actions that stopped it from being delivered?
The following short story expands on this concept further:
A 40 year old woman was focusing on attracting a $100 note and two $50 notes into her life. She felt the joy associated with visualising this extra cash and almost immediately, her employer telephoned and offered her an extra 10 hours work. Mrs 40 Year Old gets paid $20 an hour and had she accepted this offer, she would have instantly manifested her $200 abundance intention.
Now, this lady likes to think of herself as a person who’s evolving nicely on her journey through life and yet she was oblivious to the fact that ‘The Universal Genie’ had masterminded a Grand Plan to deliver her $200 desire.
At first, Mrs 40 Year Old didn’t connect the offer of 10 hours work with the image of the money she was visualising. After all, she wasn’t concentrating on doing extra work, she was thinking about receiving more money. To her credit, she had never actually stopped to think about how she was going to attract the money (surrendering the HOW to The Universe) it’s just that the thought of achieving it through her traditional job had never crossed her mind.
At this point, she witnessed her thought patterns undergoing a disturbing change – the reasoning part of her brain was taking over and Mrs 40 Year Old found herself distracted with the following negative mind chatter:
“I had to get up at 4am to work a 5 hour shift this morning and if I do another 10 hours today, that would make 15 hours in one day and that’s a really long day and I have to get up at 4am tomorrow morning to do another 4 hour shift and I don’t know if I’d be able to cope with lack of sleep when I need to work ALL those extra hours! What’s more, it’s Friday night and my husband has organized a baby sitter and arranged to take me on a date tonight and I’d have to cancel dinner with him if I took on the extra work and another thing … I’ve never worked alone in the shop until 10.30pm and that prospect feels daunting, so accepting the extra 10 hours work is not something I want to do…”
Have you ever experienced this type of exhausting ‘thought diarrhoea?’ Maybe you’ve asked for more abundance, only to turn down an offer that would have attracted more income to you.
It’s relatively easy to master Step 1: Placing Your Order with The Universe.
It’s absolutely vital to master Step 2: Keeping an expansive mind-set to ensure you recognise your desires as they are delivered.
Keep a watchful eye on yourself and make sure you are not saying “NO” when the Universe says “Here you go.”
Empowering Affirmation: “I always stay open and receptive to receiving my requests.”
How did the story end?
Mrs 40 Year Old accepted 5 of the extra 10 hours work offered, earned an extra $100 and then went out and enjoyed a beautiful meal with her husband.
She emerged from this experience with gratitude … receiving the valuable gift of another real life example demonstrating that she is an instantaneous, magical manifestor capable of creating whatever reality she chooses to focus upon.
