Contributor: Law of attraction life coach Cassie Parks
Hello all. This is a true story and I’m writing it with the permission of the other person involved. It’s a wonderful illustration of using the law of attraction, where we can get caught up as deliberate creators and how even when we do we can get right back on track. I’ve included manifesting tips and highlights in () so you can identify where what you’re doing right and if something is tripping you up how to course correct.
My friend is an avid Denver Broncos fan. I think she probably really bleeds orange and blue. About a month ago she was intending to be at the Superbowl if the Broncos were in it. It’s a no brainer. Her favorite team playing in the biggest game in her favorite city (NYC). Of course she was going.
Fast forward to the week prior … whahoo, the Broncos are going to the Superbowl! She told us that night after the game that she hadn’t been selected in the season ticket holder lottery, so she’d be manifesting tickets. (Hold to the belief that what you want is coming true, even when it doesn’t look like it yet.)
What went through my mind: “She’s got this. She’s going.” (Surround yourself with people who will see you as who you want to be, and as having what you desire. Their added support energy adds superpower to your intentions. Share your intentions with these people. And check in with yourself: Are you one of these supportive people who sees the outcomes your friends desire as done deals?)
Monday morning, she sat in a coffee shop and wrote down how she had two tickets to the Superbowl. (Intend what you want. Write it, speak it, think it as is and let go.)
Monday at 1:09 pm we have the following text conversation:
Her: “Ok, what do I need to do to manifest this ticket I KNOW is mine?” (It sometimes happens that we intend and then we don’t trust. Trust is key to manifesting what you want. Let go. You only need to do what you feel inspired to do. Leave the rest of the doing to the Universe.)
Me: “Trust it’s yours. What would you be doing right now if you already had the ticket?”
Her: “Setting up my stay, dates with friends while in town, booking airfare.”
Me: “That’s what I’d do then–if it feels good. If it doesn’t, don’t do it, even if you think you’re supposed to. Also, I would work through how awesome it will be even if it doesn’t show up and you’re in NYC enjoying your friends, the atmosphere, the experience.” (“If it feels good” is always the indicator of what you want to be doing to manifest your desire. Also, let go of the attachment to the “thing” and get happy.)
Her: “Hum, that’s the thing. I would rather be in Denver if I don’t get a ticket. Is that what’s holding me back?”
Me: “I don’t think anything holds us back. Gives us a different perspective. If you’d rather be here (Denver) if you don’t have a ticket then just let go and let the Universe deliver what is best.” (Let go of the attachment to what it is that is going to make you happy and get happy. In this case it’s easy because she really will be happy either way. She just wasn’t letting herself enjoy the possibility of being in Denver because she was holding so tightly to NYC).
Her: “Love it. Thanks!”
Tuesday at 10:30 she posts this on Facebook: “Aaaand.…this girl just manifested 2 tickets to the Super Bowl! BOOM!”
My comment on Facebook: “Of course you did!”
