The other night at work I and a co-worker decided to take a break and go for a late night stroll. While we were on our walk we somehow got onto the topic of what would be the ideal job. We both offered suggestions of what we thought would make a job more satisfying and what jobs we have had in the past that we most enjoyed. However, I had to be truthful and I shared with him what I desired most out of life. I explained to him that I would like to have enough wealth/money so that I never had to work again if I chose not to, and that I would like to wake up each day and say, “What do I want to do with my life today?” and have the wealth and freedom to do it. He kind of let out a cynical laugh and said, “Yeah, who wouldn’t want to do that.” What he was saying through his words and his behavior was that my desire wasn’t obtainable; it was too far out of reach. What I didn’t tell him was that not only have I been attempting to manifest this desire into my life, but I also have my dream home in the mountains already picked out and I have been using the principles of the LOA to manifest this desire as well. As you might imagine my longing to retire at 39 and purchase a three quarter of a million dollar home in the mountains is quite the lofty ambition, especially for someone who is only in the middle income bracket.
I am a people watcher and one thing that has really gotten my attention lately is the mindset people appear to have towards their dreams and desires. When I look at teenagers and people in their early to mid 20s I see hope and ambition in their faces. Do you know what I see when I look at the faces of people in their mid to late 30s and above? I see defeat. Somehow over the course of their lives they have accepted that what life has given them will just have to suffice. They’ve given up on their once majestic dreams and substituted with an attitude of “I will just be grateful for what I have.” And while they may have dreams they certainly don’t expect the unimaginable. Perhaps they may hope for a promotion at work, a nicer car than they have, or maybe a nicer home. Their happiness is based on obtainable yet insipid goals, at least in my opinion. Be honest, how many people do you know that openly admit to having the desires that I shared and believe it will happen? I’ve never met anyone; sure, I’ve heard people say how they wish they would win the lottery and what they would do if they did but they don’t believe it will ever happen to them. I often tell my co-workers, in a jokingly manner, that I am going to win the lottery because I just don’t want to work anymore. Their response to me is that when I do win they only want a few hundred thousand dollars, funny how they accept that I will win and share with them but not the other way around. Now this post isn’t my attempt to persuade you that I’m going to win the lottery, but to show you how people often dismiss that anything great can happen to them.
When I first started studying about the law of attraction one of the fundamental rules I learned was not to try and figure out how the desired results will come about. The objective is to feel as though your wish has already happened and maintain those feelings, but we all know that is easier said than done. As humans we often feel doubt, it is easier not to hope for something so that if it does not happen we won’t be devastated. Society, religions, and certain teachings tell us to be grateful for what we have and to find satisfaction within our lives no matter what our circumstances are. And while this type of advice is certainly commendable and can teach us to overcome obstacles it often programs us into thinking we should just settle for what we have. My friends, I don’t want to settle for what I have, I don’t want a promotion (I want out of the rat race altogether), or just a nicer car, or an upgrade to my living conditions, I want what I’ve set out to achieve in my life and I believe it will happen………. well I admit I have had my doubts.
I’ve been seeing Numerical Synchronicities for months now and I have seen proof of how these numbers are communications from my guides/angels. However, being human with a skeptical mind I have found myself having moments of doubt about my dreams coming true. Although I have been getting signs in the form of these number sequences I couldn’t help but to let doubt creep in. Fortunately, Julie the author of the blog A Clear Sign I frequently read is an Intuitive Consultant and she offered a free question to her readers in a recent post titled “It’s One Free Intuitive Question and Answer Week!” Having the doubts I did I posed this question to her, “I’ve been getting a lot of numerical synchronicities mainly 555s, 222s, 622s and 922s any idea what is coming for me?” The short version of her answer goes, “As I was typing an answer to him, my fingers wrote some additional things, all by themselves. Basically, that he had already “put in his order” with the universe, he knew what he asked for, but he didn’t quite believe it……I heard, ‘Moving, moving, moving, sudden.’” If you would like to read the full reply to my question please journey over to Julie’s blog and read Why Intuitive Answers Aren’t Always Black and White. Now Julie’s answer wasn’t necessarily black and white, just like her post implies, and could mean a number of things. Nevertheless, I see this as a sign of great things to come. Sometime last year I received my first psychic reading, and what amazed me was that shortly after the session started he told me he saw me with property in a year or two. Interestingly, he had no idea that I was living in an apartment in the city and really had no financial means to buy property. Just a side note, I would never buy property in the city even if I had more than enough money to do so, mountain property is my only desire.
How does a 39 year old man on a middle class income manage to retire and buy a $700,000 home? I have no idea, but it doesn’t mean I have to surrender to the rationale that it can’t happen. That is the beauty of the law of attraction; we don’t have to worry about how it will happen we just have to believe that it will. Not only is my desire for my dreams to come true, but also for each of you. Whatever your aspirations are, whether monumental or modest, it is crucial to believe that you can acquire what you’ve set out to accomplish. I have nothing against the philosophy of starting out with small goals working to accomplish the grand objective, many self help experts recommend this approach. Just don’t lose sight of what you set out to do and settle for completing those smaller objectives. You may remember being told when you were a child that you could be anything you wanted to be, or maybe you have told your children the same thing. Adults typically don’t give children false hope, we tell them they can accomplish anything they set out to do because we believe in them. Don’t stop believing in yourself merely because life has become stagnant. Anything is possible when it comes to the LOA, it is all a matter of what you believe……….
