Here’s what I created last week…
I was driving back home from picking up some take-out dinner last Wednesday. While driving, I was thinking about how different my life is today from where it was just a few years ago. I started thinking about the vacations we’ve taken (Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Cancun, Africa, Whistler BC, etc.), the money we’ve created, the experiences we’ve manifested (meeting David Copperfield, having a conversation with Phil Keoghan (host of The Amazing Race television show, meeting Michael Losier, etc.)…
….and as I was driving, I started feeling that wonderful bubbly feeling in my chest. Just pure joy of being alive and understanding that I’m actually creating all of these experiences myself.
And, for me, when I feel that “bubbly” feeling, that’s when I know I’m vibrating at the right place. So, I laughed out loud and said, “Okay, I’m going to receive $5,000 in the next 24 hours”. I meditated on that for a moment, let it go and walked in the house to eat with my family.
The next night, Jessica and I are talking about some of the principles and how they work….and I told her about my intention for $5,000. And that it’d been about 28 hours. So far, nothing had happened at all. We’d already made quite a bit of money at that point in the week but I was looking for a specific amount in response to the “seed” I’d planted in my subconscious.
But, nothing had happened. And I’ve been doing this long enough that I’m not disappointed when it seems that it’s not an exact science. So, I didn’t give any attention to the apparent “lack of results”.
The next morning, I was helping catching up on email and the phone rang. When I picked it up, these are the first words I heard:
“Tony? This is Jeff. Check your bank account.”
Without getting into a side story about how it happened, etc…..I had $20,990 sitting in my bank account from someone who was not even on my radar. He was someone who I hadn’t spoken to in months and there was absolutely no reason to think that I would be receiving this money.
So, it took 36 hours…but it was a LOT more than my intention was set for. And if there’s a moral to the story, it’s this: not only do these principles work…but they can work dramatically, quickly and quite a bit more efficiently than we sometimes imagine.
So, I thought I’d repeat the process as another litmus test. I set an intention for $8,000 or more in the next 48 hours. In less than six hours, I got a phone call that informed me that I have $8,000 coming via FedEx. It arrived the next morning.
And the story is still continuing. I’ve manifested a particular Rolex watch that is absolutely impossible to find…and yet I was offered one “out of the blue” for a price that was thousands of dollars less than the market price.
Now, none of this is to sound arrogant at all. I’m just an ordinary guy. Nothing special about me. But, the larger point is this: when you use these principles as they’re taught and you do it with integrity and commitment….you can live your life by DESIGN….and life is no longer something that’s happening “to” you.
Instead, YOU are happening to your life.
And what an amazing life this is!
