One way that deliberately manifesting something into my life has worked for me is to think about it (visualize) and then listen for the nudges from my inner guidance. This is how it happened when I manifested my laptop.
Several years ago, I had a Toshiba laptop computer. I really liked that little laptop and it did everything I needed it to do. Until it got old and worn out. I needed a new laptop.
For some reason, I got it into my head that I needed a Macbook Air laptop. At the time, I wasn’t working and we didn’t have a lot of extra money. We definitely didn’t have the extra $1200 for a laptop. Yet, I couldn’t get the idea of having this computer out of my head.
I Was Obsessed with the Idea
My husband desperately tried to satisfy me in a less expensive way. He bought a beautiful Sony laptop from a friend of ours for only $300. But, there was a problem. I hated that Sony with every fiber of my being. In fact, I had it for such a short amount of time before it completely stopped working. (That’s certainly a version of Law of Attraction in action. I hated it so much it stopped working. Or, it was just crap. Either way…) It made me even more determined to get a Macbook Air.
This was something that went into my head and would not leave. I could only picture that computer. Over and over and over again.
One day, my husband came home and said “So… there’s a sweepstakes at the casino for Macbook Airs tomorrow.” “Hm”, I thought. “I’ve never been to a casino by myself, but I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try.”
The Next day, I Remember Dropping My Kids Off at School.
I remember looking into the deep, blue sky and thinking how the Universe has perfect timing. I cleared off my computer desk and cleaned it so that I had a nice, neat area for my new computer. Then I headed to the casino.
I sat down at the Pai Gow poker table and swiftly lost $100 right away. Then I thought “I guess I’ll try a slot machine until they call a winner for the laptop.”
I sat down at a machine and started losing. Then, I so clearly remember this message popping into my head.
“Why don’t you sit down to a slot machine with a big jackpot?”
I Walked Around a Bit and Then Sat Down at the Grease Machine.
I hit a button. Then another. I didn’t even know what I was doing, but I hit the Max Bet button and all of the sudden the machine started to sing “You’re the one that I want.” There was a yellow box that popped up and said that I won the $12,000 jackpot. I didn’t even know what it was at first! I thought it was an error of some sort until a lady walked by and congratulated me.
While I didn’t win the sweeps for the Macbook Air, I got something even better. We went to the mall that night and picked out my new computer. I also picked out a Vitamix, another big item on my wish list. I am so grateful and happy for both of these items, and for the experience of winning itself.
(Side note. After reading the book, Write It Down, Make It Happen, one of the things I had written was to experience what it was like to win $5,000 or more at one time.)
Because we were so excited and our “vibes” were so high, I also ended up winning $500 on a scratch-off and my husband won $600 in poker the same day.
Be Very Clear on Your Desire
The Law of Attraction is real. You can deliberately bring anything into this world that you truly want. (And believe you can have.) Sometimes people will say to me “Well, I want to fly.” The thing is, it’s going to take a huge leap of faith to believe you can fly. And, do you REALLY want to fly? Probably not. Stick to the things that you REALLY want and REALLY believe you can have and it will be yours. It’s law.
This is the thing that trips up most people when it comes to manifesting. It still trips me up even though I know exactly what to do. You have to be very clear on your desire. You have to know exactly what you want. When you form that picture in your head, you need to keep picturing it.
Where I have a hard time (and I’m guessing you do too) is figuring out exactly what I want. Especially with so many choices available!
What do you want? What do you really, truly want? If you’re clear on it, it WILL come to you. It has to.
For me with this laptop, I don’t even know why I was so obsessed with it! It just came into my head one day and wouldn’t stop. But what’s interesting is I knew, I KNEW I would have it somehow, someway. There was no other option.
Don’t Just Go Out and Start Gambling to Get What You Want
I hope that’s not what you took away from this story. It wasn’t even about the jackpot itself. My computer could have manifested in an infinite number of ways. It just so happens that the perfect circumstances lined up for it to happen this way. You have to start listening to your intuition, your inner guidance.
Other times when things have manifested for me, it’s like I was “pushed” in a certain direction. Or, it’s a nudge I can’t shake off. Sometimes you get a thought in your head about something and you just can’t NOT do that thing that you’re thinking about. (This is called inspired action, and it’s the BEST kind of action. It’s the kind of action that doesn’t feel forced. It feels good.)
It’s not just about going off to win the money for the stuff that you want. I’ve tried that many times again after this win, and it just doesn’t work. Instead, you have to follow the clues from your inner guidance to lead you to the thing you want.
Do YOU Have a Story?
This is one of many of my own stories. I will share more as time goes on. How about you? What have you manifested? What have you thought into being? What do you want to think into being? Leave a comment below!
