I think I mentioned awhile ago how my friend and I were working on manifesting certain things in our lives and in our businesses so we committed to a daily ‘rampage.’ Each morning we would spend five minutes speaking about the things that we wanted and why we wanted them (never the ‘how’ or the ‘when’…). And it was working really well for several days. But then it started to feel a bit stale. Like I was forcing it. “Yea, yea, yea, I want [this] because of [this].” I was kind of losing the good energy around it. The next time I spoke with my friend she reminded me of something. Instead of continuing to ‘rampage’, she just decided to ask for what she wanted. And, of course, there’s a great Abraham-Hicks quote that says just that…
“Delegate it to the manager. You have this really good staff that will take care of everything for you. You just have to delegate it — and trust it.” –Abraham
The trust part is the hard part. As humans, we tend not to trust others or things outside ourselves to work without our help. We assume that in order for something to work out, we need to wrestle it to the ground and make it happen ourselves. In a rampage, when we want something, we state it over and over and over again. That can sometimes be a bad thing because our energy, our excitement, around that thing may not be great all the time. In other words, when we force ourselves to think about something in a positive way, we may let feelings of its absence sneak in and thereby cause the excitement and positive feelings about that thing drop. Think about it, if you’re totally psyched about something and you go on and on about it, it’s awesome. And, when you’re in that place, you definitely should go on and on about it. When you do, you get this really great momentum about that thing going. But, when you try to force yourself to find that same momentum about that same thing say the next day, you often can’t get there. It just doesn’t feel as good.
There’s another quote from Abraham, can’t remember it perfectly and can’t seem to find it right now, but it basically says that you don’t have to spend all your time focusing on what it is you want. You just have to put it out there…delegate it…and then go get happy doing whatever.
When I was rampaging and started to feel less than excited about it, that was my sign to let it go and get out of the way of it. So I did. I simply asked for what it was that I wanted, or, I told the Universe that [this] is what I want and I would appreciate its help in making that happen. Then I let it go. I went about my day. I petted and loved on my dogs. I sat in the sun. I read a book. I talked to a friend. And what do you think happened? Yep. I got it. So what’s the moral of this little blog?
Ask for what you want. Then go pet your dog.
