Daffodil in Winter…
Since reading The Secret, I’ve had enormous success in attracting items and experiences into my life, to the point that I was beginning to wonder if I really had anything to do with what was manifesting in my life, or if it was just “coincidence”. So I decided to manifest something small and ridiculous, just to prove to myself that I am the one who’s in charge.
This winter in the Toronto area started pretty early, and the snow was overwhelming at times, so I decided one morning that I would see a bright yellow daffodil, in the snow, somewhere in downtown Toronto. Long story short, I ended up getting lost between meetings and I found myself sitting in traffic in an area of town I had no reason to be (both meetings were in the west, and I was in the north). As I sat in my car waiting for traffic to move, for no reason at all I looked over to my right, and low and behold, right next to a bus shelter was a large garbage can with tons of snow all around it, and attached to the can was an advertisement that had a bunch of daffodils all over it; including one larger, bright yellow daffodil that somehow, the snow had been cleared away from.
It’s no secret that it’s the small things that are important in life, and I think that’s why this is such a big deal. Many of us have no trouble manifesting the big things like cars, homes or money, but manifesting smaller, more precise items, like a daffodil in the snow, or finding a lost car key, or even getting a free cup of coffee or convenient parking space, can seem impossible.
My advice to anyone who’s having trouble manifesting, is to remember that manifesting anything, whether it be a car key, or an entire car, takes the exact same effort; no more, no less. It takes no more effort to snap a picture of a blade of grass, than it does to snap a picture of a valley; all you need to do is see the item and click the button. Regardless if it’s a blade of grass or a field of grass; the picture will be taken.
For those of you looking to manifest a friend, life-partner, or a child, instead of seeing the person as a gift to you, imagine you’re the gift to that other person. This will not only tell the universe that you’re prepared to give yourself to someone, but it will also encourage you to continually look your best and take care of yourself, so that when he/she/it comes along, their gift that is you, will be at its best.
