As I’ve begun to dig deeper into The Law of Attraction and all that it entails, I’ve found that there are some aspects that I thrive at and others that I struggle with. Similar to a geometry student who excels in segment bisectors but can’t quite grasp general convexity or a novice botanist who revels in plant anatomy but shirks away from plant genetics, I’ve found that I am good with affirmations and visualizing but am woefully impatient and thus unsuccessful at meditation.
Over the years, I’ve purchased meditation CDs, attended meditation classes and read books on meditation, but I was still unable to incorporate it into my daily life. The meditation CDs usually put me to sleep and the classes and books made me feel like a failure! My mind was too busy racing from the past or to the future to focus on the present moment! To be clear, I’ve been able to manifest quite a few things including money, relationships, and jobs. But I believe that I would be able to supercharge my manifestations and bring more of my visualizations to reality quicker if I could meditate.
It’s been said that prayer is when you talk to God, the Unseen, Divine Mind, the Infinite, Principle of Good, First Cause, the Absolute, Source or whomever you connect with and meditation gives Him the opportunity to speak back. Who wouldn’t want to hear from God? Job tells, us in chapter 33 that God does speak – now one way, now another – though no one perceives it. What I’ve found to be true is that the Infinite Source speaks to us through our intuition, through serendipitous events, and through other people among other ways. I reiterate….WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO HEAR FROM GOD???
SOURCE SPEAKS TO US THROUGH INTUITION
Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence, or conscious reasoning, or without understanding of how the knowledge was acquired. Intuition is a practical tool that we can use to help us deal with life’s experiences. Helpful decisions, solutions to problems and inspired ideas all come from our intuitive self. It is an incredible inner resource and gift that we can use to enhance the quality of our lives.
Some people think that intuition is a special gift which certain people have and others do not. Nothing could be further from the truth; we were all born with intuition. Perhaps you have had intuitive experiences that you just didn’t recognize as such, including:
- Having a hunch about something – you knew the best decision to make and it paid off
- Having a “gut feeling” that something would occur
- The phone rang, and you just knew who it was going to be
- You’re out and about and you feel that someone is looking at you and when you turn to look, he/she turns away.
These are simple examples of intuition that occur quite naturally throughout the day. Most of us simply do not recognize or develop intuition after birth, as we live in a society focused on the physical world that which we can see, taste, touch, hear, and smell.
- Start paying closer attention to your self-talk and giving more credence to your hunches. It could very well be Infinite Source; He speaks to us through intuition, nudges and hints, and deep feelings that just won’t go away.
SOURCE SPEAKS TO US THROUGH SERENDIPITOUS EVENTS
The definition of serendipitous refers to something good or fortunate that happens as a result of luck or chance. Given that a serendipitous event is unplanned and unanticipated, the moment could be potentially missed or overlooked by one person, while the same event discovered and developed by someone else. The pacemaker, Post-it Notes, and Viagra were all brought to us courtesy of serendipitous events.
“As the synchronicities start to show up in your life, and you naturally react to those mysterious events with an authentic state of joy, a love for life, and sincere gratitude—you suddenly feel more awake, alive, aware, and empowered. That’s because there is a confirmation between your inner world of thoughts and feelings (meditations), and your outer world of physical reality. Then you begin to notice and recognize the thoughts and feelings you’re experiencing from these moments of serendipity and synchronicity are equal to the thoughts and feelings you experience every day in your meditations. The thrill and inspiration you meet the events with is because you’re beginning to experience your future. This helps you to tune into that destiny even more.”
Are you meditating on money? Serendipity causes you find some money in the pocket of a jacket that you haven’t worn in two years.
Want to manifest an ideal romance? Serendipity causes you meet the person who becomes your spouse because your train is late that day, this is an example of a serendipitous event.
- Serendipity is God whispering to us; it is His still small voice that beckons us to be aware of His presence.
SOURCE SPEAKS TO US THROUGH EACH OTHER
Source may use the occasional chance word from another person to convey His message of truth to us. This could be a conversation that takes on unusual meaning and resonance for us. This could be from a friend, a teacher, a parent, or a spiritual leader – any trusted person whom we wouldn’t think twice about taking advice from. Their words may come as a warning, a blessing, or as a prophetic truth about our particular situation. Whether we choose to hear it or ignore it depends on us.
Divine Guidance has placed different people in our lives at various levels of authority to speak at different times and for different purposes. There are the people you’re intentionally in relationship with. That includes your family, your co-workers, your mentor, your best friend, your friend at church. These are the people in your world that you interact with in a more regular relational form. Then there are random others. These are the people you kinda know who move around the periphery of your life. This could be your dry cleaner, the grocery store clerk, the mailman – folks whom you happen to interact with circumstantially. Source is just as likely to use a random other to speak to you (more objectively) as He is to us someone with whom you are in intentional relationship. Just as with intuition and serendipitous events, it’s up to you to listen and discern.
- It matters who you listen to: The Absolute aligns you with people in your life for divine conversation. He will use the people in your life to speak TO you and He will speak THROUGH you to the people in your life.
So while I may not yet have the patience to sit in darkness for 20 minutes to listen for Source, I can certainly be more mindful of Source speaking to me as I go about my day. I’ll start with this while I continue to work on my meditation practice. As with anything else, as I focus on it, it will become my reality.
