This chair. It’s unique. It’s beautiful. It’s really big. It speaks to my bohemian, hippie soul!
But not only that . . . it’s magical!
Because rather than just being a chair, it is actually a desire long held, only recently fulfilled. It is my manifestation. My energy transformed. It is all of these things.
Set an intention, hold the thought for a moment, feel the feelings that thought provokes, take a deep breath and then release it. Let it go, out from you, wafting into the environment and upward into the vastness of the universe. It has been created, it has been instilled with heart’s desire and given wings. Away from you it flies, you can see it in your mind’s eye and there you remain watching, left with the assurance that just as it has so many times before, it will indeed come back to you. Fulfilled.
Thought becomes reality. Intention becomes Manifestation.
But what is “it”?
It is real. It is Magical.
It is anything you want it to be.
It can be whatever you are in need of, whatever you desire. Money, material possessions, a certain outcome, a way out of a bad situation, a new home, you name it! If what you truly desire comes from a place of love and is in alignment with what it best for the common good, there really are no limits. That’s what my recent experiences have proven to me.
Spiritual minds support it:
“Thought, feeling and body. When the three become one, you will say to the mountain “move” and the mountain will move.~the Kabbalah
“The space between your thoughts, is the window to the cosmic mind.” ~Deepak Chopra
What you are living is the evidence of what you are thinking and feeling-every single time. ~Abraham-Hicks
Science confirms it:
Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality.* It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”~Albert Einstein
“If you wish to understand the universe (to find the secrets of the universe), think of energy, frequency and vibration.”~Nikola Tesla
A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. ~R. C. Henry**
“What shows up in our lives is a direct reflection of our inner thoughts and emotions.”~Pam Grout
And this just sums it up so perfectly:
“Everything is energy. Your thought begins it, your emotion amplifies it and your action increases the momentum”~Avinash Wandre
Call it the Secret, the Law of Attraction, creative visualization, the law of relativity or simply imagination, but here’s what I believe:
“You are powerful. You are perfect. Be a seamless flow of good energy, aligned with your consciousness; heart, mind, body and soul.
The results you manifest will leave you believing in the sheer magic of it all.
And now, with all that being said, I am proud to share with you my latest manifestation of the fine chair pictured above. It’s a rather short simple story but really I think that’s what makes it most magical of all. It really can be that easy once you get the hang of it.
It goes something like this:
The last couple of years, I have really been coming into my own, living my life out loud and proud, expressing the inner me with the outer me. Part of that involves moving to our new home and really embracing the opportunity to allow our home environment to express the souls we are. Anyone who truly knows me and has seen the inner me, will assure you I have always been a bit of a (or if I’m honest-these days, it’s more full on) bohemian. Circumstances in my early life stifled that for me but the free spirited me always remained beneath the surface. This goes for my mom who raised me, as well. Her hippie soul was always present with us, in ideals, her choices, in her views of the world shared with me and present in small ways in the furnishings of our home, the art that bedecked the walls. We were hippies, bohemians, gypsy souls living under the restraints of a practical straight laced life. Now, I am happy to say we are free, we are living our authenticity proudly. And I am left wanting to reconnect with some of those things I felt a connection to, even way back then. And so I have comprised a bit of a wish list in my mind/heart and presently, a virtual vision board of those things.
This chair. Definitely on my Wish List. Has been for a few years now.
But it was only a few weeks ago that I began actively looking into getting one. Truth is, there are very few left in any kind of decent condition and the reproductions cost upwards of hundreds of dollars. Still, I wasn’t going to allow myself to get discouraged. I said to my daughter, “You know what? It’s okay. The weather is starting to warm up, summer is coming and there will be yard sales. I’m just going to hold a space that there will be one at a yard sale and it will be perfect, maybe even better than this one (the one I was looking at online for $400) and it will be just the right price, one I can afford.”
That was probably only about a week or two ago I said that to her.
Two days ago, I signed onto the local facebook “for sale” page looking for a table I had seen previously, wanted to share with my husband. First new listing on the page I came to (and immediately caught my eye) was a listing for this fantastic bohemian “peacock chair”. It was different from the one I was looking at online. It was even better! It was an original in terrific condition and it was totally affordable. I couldn’t believe it! What are the chances?
Oh! And get this. That page on Facebook. It’s actually called “Indoor Yard Sale”. Yep! Yard sale. This chair came from a “yard sale” just as I had said.
I knew this was my opportunity. I knew I had to go for it. I shared the post with my daughter and she vehemently pronounced “Oh my gosh mom! You totally manifested that! You so totally did!” I did! And it was so quick, just a matter of a week or two.
But then, I realized there was someone else ahead of me with first dibs and there was also the predicament of how I was even going to get this thing home. Still, I wasn’t discouraged. I got this! This chair is mine!
I shared the news with a friend, who piped right in with the information that the place where the chair was was very close to her home and that she would gladly go pick it up for me. And the guy ahead of me? Well I did have to wait an entire day to find out if he would show for the chair. He did. The chair was his.
So I guess, maybe it wasn’t so magical? Maybe I could think that. But in that moment, yet another thing happened. The girl selling the chair let me know that she hadn’t posted about it yet, but she had a bigger, more magnificent one available for sale. And she would be willing to sell it to me for the same price as the original chair. I held out, held onto the prospect, didn’t give in to discouragement, continued to believe that what I really wanted would come my way. It did and it was even more than I expected!
To us, this chair will be more than ample fun seating for two. It is a reminder of all that can be accomplished when you set your mind and heart to something!
Next up for me is this little Indian table (straight out of my childhood):
(stay tuned . . .)
Keep on wishing, dreaming. believing, and manifesting! You’ve got this, my friends!
