Every day is filled with adventures if we decide to take notice of these wonderful events. However, on a much larger scope, what we really want to experience (the ideal job, the ideal mate, the ideal home, etc) may take a little while to obtain. Why is that the case one would ask? Well, I believe that it’s due to the size of the order that is requested, so to speak. In other words, when we go to a restaurant and order a specific meal, such as a specialty cooked chicken, it will take the chef about 45 minutes to cook it just right to perfection because it’s specific, not general.
Furthermore, we have to be prepared to receive the food. But, let’s take one step back, we need to show up to and take action at the restaurant first. When we are hungry, proactive steps have to be taken in order to reach the goal of satisfying a hunger. So, decisions have to be made, such as where to eat. If a fancy restaurant is picked, one would dress, well, fancy. If a fast food place is picked, well, one would dress causal. My point is we have to become what we want out of life.
To live life to the fullest, we have to approach life actively and with intention.
How are you showing up in your life?
When we make a specific request to the universe, keep in mind that there are things happening in the background, like when the chef is preparing the meal. We don’t see him preparing it but we do see the end result. and going to a place to eat, that have to take place first in order for us to reach our goal. However, if criteria are not set for an intention, then a default order, as I call it, is the result.
For example, a while ago I kept saying that I need a pair of jeans. I need a pair of dark blue jeans. And, of course, the stores I went to had dark blue jeans, but they were flare jeans (which I hate) or they didn’t fit, yada yada. Finally, one day, I said to my mom ‘all I need is a pair of dark blue skinny jeans that fit nicely and makes my butt look good.
Do you ask for what you want and need?
Well lo and behold that is exactly what I received. Nothing more, nothing less. After I tried on the skinny jeans I went back to the table to ascertain if the store had any more in my size. But, I sabotaged myself because I said ‘a’ pair of jeans. So, naturally, the pair of jeans I had was the last in my size!
Living life to your fullest potential has a lot to do with your ability to manifest and to receive what you have been manifesting.
So, ask yourself these questions:
- Am I ready and willing to receive what I have been putting out into the world right now if it were to happen at this very moment?
- Am I as specific as possible with what I desire?
- Am I challenging myself to do and be better?
- How often do I try new things?
- Am I making room for opportunities to come my way?
