My friend Dorothy says I am a good manifestor in that I frequently create the reality of what I want. I think we all have that ability but somewhere along the road most of us have been taught to mistrust or ignore it. I remember a day at my grandmother's house when I spied a bowl of candy and politely asked if I could have a piece. My mother got very upset and scolded me saying that I shouldn't ask for candy but instead wait until it was offered. Well, I was six years old and that made an impression. For years after I passively waited for someone to read my mind and give me what I wanted, but it just didn't seem to work very well. I finally decided that I had it right the first time, and so I asked for what I wanted, and chose to believe that I would get it. I was in my twenties at that point, so my "candy" was a horse, something I had wanted since I saw my first one at age 2. And it happened; I was given a horse. Well, it was a pregnant mare that had never been ridden, so we are back to being concrete and specific, but it was a horse. And it was given to me just as I had asked. There was no stopping me after that.
I manifested the house I am currently living in, as I did the one I just sold. I wrote down exactly what I wanted and needed each time, politely asked for it, and then got happy trusting that it was on its way to me (or I was on my way to it; I think it works both ways). The willingness to receive what it is you have asked for is the biggest part of being a manifestor. Sometimes we get stuck in the place of wanting and then the experience of wanting becomes our reality. Think about it: as long as we are wanting, we are not having. Allowing yourself to actually have what you want can be quite challenging as it takes us away from that old familiar place of longing, and sometimes interferes with our identity and sense of self worth. The act of writing things down seems to empower the process of receiving what we desire, perhaps because it better aligns our metal attitude in that direction on a different level. So write down what you want (remember concrete and specific) and become willing to have it; allow yourself to manifest your heart's desire. If there is a part of your mind that says this is silly or impossible, notice how your thoughts keep you away from what you want. You can change your thoughts. And I would love to hear about your adventures in doing so.
