Making It Happen
Within you lies the secret of your dreams, the hidden strength to perform We all have this gift from birth; the trouble is, most of us don't know about it, and the rest of us are afraid of it. We have powerful spiritual and intuitive reserves that, when recognized, understood, and utilized to their greatest capacity, can dispel our fears and help us get the things we want out of life. But our fears may be strong enough to stop us. We're afraid that if we get what we ask for we won't be able to handle it emotionally, or worse, we won't be able to keep it.
For instance, you may ask for and manifest romantic love and marriage. Years or maybe even months down the road it gets rocky and the solidity of the relationship becomes shaky. The two of you are fighting or growing apart and eventually your marriage ends in divorce. You obviously got what you wanted but were unable to keep it and you now suffer the emotional pain of it all. What you might not realize is that your happiness and success depend upon knowing what you truly want and how to ask for it correctly. If your marriage failed, it's a sure sign that a part of you didn't want it after all. When you truly desire a relationship, you attract the right person and it works! That's so of all situations, but you need the effective skills. With the right spiritual tools, techniques, and instruction, you won't fail. Then, confidently, you can draw on your basic intuitive abilities to achieve your goals and transform your life into the wonderful, joyful, and fulfilling experience it was truly meant to be.
You can develop the talents necessary to create the life you want. Did you ever think that your stubborn streak would be a great asset to drawing what you want into your life? That ability to relentlessly pursue the perfect pizza in every restaurant in town or the unceasing and discriminating quest to get just the right shade of blue for your living room can and will, with a little education from this book, get you anything in the Universe that you desire.
Another talent in all of us that we might not be aware of or accustomed to using is our own psychic power. We all possess it. We're born with it. We tend to call it intuition or coincidence, like when you find you need advice from a particular person you trust who is far away and then out of the blue, she calls.
Not a coincidence at all. You psychically sent out a message to her psychic self in the form of a thought or desire. She picked it up on a subconscious level and woke up one day thinking to herself, "I've got to call Mary. I don't know why, but I do." We know why.
When these talents and abilities I'm speaking of are recognized and developed, they can give you the power to change your life. To help you to develop them, this book will give you practical tools, exercises, and rituals to use so that manifesting your needs and wants becomes easier and easier.
Getting what you want happens when you begin to use your talents and abilities to their greatest extent in making everyday decisions. I call this your psychic common sense. As you begin to use the part of your mind that is sensitive to thoughts and stimuli from everyone and everything on the Earth and beyond, you will become aware of the forces in the Universe that are there to help you. You do this every time you say a prayer. By calling on the unseen spiritual help available to all of us, you can be guided to your own success. When you begin to live each day from a limitless perspective-that is, accepting that anything you need or want can be yours-you will realize that nothing can stop you. This changes the way you think and the way you see the world. When your thinking changes, so does your life.
Every great athlete, performer, writer, artist, and business person has discovered that the way to make things happen lies beyond our physical selves. They've learned to work with their intuitive abilities to achieve their success. Over and over again we read about successful people who attribute their success to something greater than themselves, a power they didn't know they had, but when they acknowledged it, it became the source of their greatness. This power is also in you.
We tap into this power each day. For example, you're driving to work during rush hour and you get a "feeling" that you should not take your usual route, but an alternate route. Your logical mind is saying, "It'll take longer that way. I'll run into a lot of lights and I'll be late for work." Still, that feeling gnaws at you until you decide to take the alternate road. When you arrive at
work you learn that there was a major accident on the road you usually take, a seven-car pileup. You think to yourself, "That could have been me. Good thing I took the other route. What a coincidence." Is it? I think not. It's your psychic common sense at work, and you listened to it. This is just one example, and there are countless others, of how our basic day-to-day decisions that we all have to make continually can be wiser, more perceptive, and get us more positive results.
We're very aware of these abilities in another area of our lives. Our dreams hold a fascination for many of us. I'm sure you've had dreams that were so vivid they felt absolutely real. Did you ever realize that your dreams are a part of your valuable psychic self? You can use the information in them to guide you to make important decisions and to help you get what you want.
A dear client of mine recently had a very important decision to make. It involved taking a new job, moving across the country, and uprooting her entire life. She asked for guidance before she went to sleep and, on waking the next morning, had her answer. In her dream her daughter, who lived in the area where she would be moving, told her everything would be fine, and she'd be happy making the move. She felt certain that this was direct guidance and relocated. Soon after, I received a letter from her telling me how happy she was that she had decided to listen to her dream. She keyed into her psychic common sense through her dream and allowed it to happen because, instinctively, she knew it was the right thing to do.
Many of my clients have told me that they have received similar guidance while in meditation. Our creative subconscious can form picture messages to help guide us. People report seeing a building or house, and then actually finding it. These are not unusual circumstances. When you realize that these things are probably happening in your life, too, you can use your psychic and intuitive power to give you the edge you need to make things happen.
There's no doubt that those of us who have the lives we want have learned how to make them happen and have tapped into this endless source of cre
ativity. You can, too, as long as you take the necessary steps. So, first things first. Understand who you really are.
Take a Good Look at You
To get everything you want it's important to take a long, close look at you. How does your life measure up? Is it happy, fulfilling, abundant, prosperous, and loving? How do you feel when you take that look? If you're not happy with what you see, I suggest you shake up, wake UP, and do it over. Create the life you've always dreamed about. Revolutionary new thinking, huh?
You've got to be ready to accept change into your life. We can get pretty lazy. Most of us are content to settle for the status quo because we're afraid of the future, of what we don't know. We resist committing to our future and the responsibility we share in shaping it. It's nice to think that the blessings of the Universe are somehow bestowed on us by a Greater Power, because it's easier than participating in their formation. It's also easier to blame God for not working these miracles in our lives, rather than accepting the part we play in making them happen. If you're one of those folks, I suggest you return this book to the store where you bought it and spend the money on aspirin instead, because I see lots of headaches ahead for you! But if you can and want to accept changes, like a life full of prosperity, love, good health, and happiness, then the answers to your questions are waiting and ready. They are locked in your soul, a part of the spirit that is you.
Flex Those Psychic Muscles
Here's an exercise to help you to assess who you really are. I've found in working with many people that it's best to keep a separate journal of your answers apart from this book, though writing in the spaces provided here is an option, too. That way you can follow your own progress and advancement just by glancing at your notes. Treat yourself to an attractive notebook that
