A question arose today concerning the crossover between exercising our power in manifesting vs God’s plan and also testing God by practicing to manifest little things in life, which happens to be what we will be doing during one of the weeks of my manifesting course.
I will begin with the fact that I am a believer in God as a higher power. I often use alternate words because many folks feel uncomfortable with the “G” word and I believe that when it boils down to it, whether the word Universe, Spirit, etc is used, we all believe in the same higher power, spoken under a different name.
And on to my response…
We are often closed off to help. We walk around feeling stuck, sorry for ourselves, or that it is simply our situation, our lot in life. When we are in this place, we still receive help from God, (or other higher power) but because we are closed to it, we don't notice the little offerings that are gifted to us, or we even reject them.
When we ask for help not only are we asking, but we are opening ourselves up to a greater possibility, telling God or the Universe that we are ready to take action and accept the challenges that come along, take responsibility for the gifts granted. While we journey along our path, sometimes we are clear and receive, other times we need a lesson first, or we are meant to receive it in another form or sometimes we simply aren’t meant to have it. Sometimes we are asking for more than we can physically handle.
The first step in any of this however, is getting clear on what it is that you want to bring into your life and then asking from a place of complete surrender, knowing that lessons may come and it will probably come in a form that you weren’t expecting, but trusting that an answer will come in some way. Having complete faith.
I believe that the little exercises of manifesting money or a feather, etc, is our way of practicing complete surrender, faith and prayer. This isn’t always an easy thing to do, and a muscle that can use strengthening.
