One day after work my partner called and said he had some news for me. I told him it sounded ominous by the tone in his voice. He quickly replied “No, no! It’s good news–very good news–and it will make you very happy.”
I told him I was already feeling very happy and that I was grateful to hear more news that would make me even happier. He said I would have to wait for him to come home and explain it all.
I love the quote featured in the above picture by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen.”
I have always wanted a MacBook Pro and envisioned myself using it as a self-employed writer. However, despite trying several methods, one had never materialised. A few days ago it had crossed my mind to wonder why I hadn’t yet manifested a MacBook. What am I doing wrong? I asked myself. Should I set a deadline? (I had read somewhere about people setting deadlines to manifest something and it working.) I was then distracted from my thoughts and the whole thing slipped from my mind.
When my partner came home I quickly quizzed him about the good news. He told me about a whole series of events that had happened that day. He said he’d made a random comment about wanting to buy an iPad and the person he was talking to replied, “I haven’t got an iPad but I do have a MacBook going cheap.” Apparently, it had been an unwanted gift.
Abraham reminds us, “Ask and it is given,” and that the details of how it happens are none of our business. Still, I was totally astonished how out of the blue a sequence of events arose to bring me my beautiful new MacBook. And, as an added bonus, my beautiful partner offered to buy it for me as a very lavish birthday present so it actually didn’t cost me a penny!
But the story doesn’t end there. Still in awe of its manifestation and thinking about how it came about I remembered how I was thinking about my lack of a MacBook only a short time previously and that as I envisioned my dream of self-employed writing I knew I would have to manifest my own laptop before being able to leave my paid employment. And so, I take this as a huge sign that I have ramped up my manifesting power and my dream career will soon be made manifest also.
