This title on being present has been my latest theme in readings and of course, as always, my biggest lesson. I share with you. This one make sense, but I have to admit, hard for me to do at times. This concept is about being present or like a drawing, you must be present to win. Now I have talked about being present, more than once. Eckhart Tolle discusses it in the Power of Now and A New Earth, and many other spiritual teachers bring in the concept as well. I agree with all of them, that it is a powerful tool. But most of us don't "get it" just because you told us to be more present.
So here is what is coming up for this... when you make a request from the universe, but keep moving ahead as if the request will not be answered, you miss it. Meaning, if you are always moving, planning, straining to get out of where you are and requesting to get out of where you are... the universe goes to bring you your request where you were, not where you have pulled yourself to now.
Here is an example, lets say you are wishing for the perfect job. You put the request in, and then search and apply for every job you possibly can, even if it isn't perfect. Meaning you don't believe your request for the perfect job is possible, so you keep going as if it isn't. In the mean time, the perfect opportunity just arrived at your door... but you were at an interview for that not so perfect job and missed it.
IF you put in a request... trust that it will come. If you can't trust it, don't blame the universe for not delivering it to you. You gave it the wrong address!
Here is your inspiration. Where have you put in a request to the universe and have given up on having it happen? Go back to that request. Look at why you don't believe it to be possible, and see if you can heal that part first. Then... make the request again and trust. Secondly, be aware of the requests you make and what you do to make it happen. Do you move forward as if it IS going to happen? Making plans, preparing yourself, and expecting the best? Or do you do the opposite and make an alternative plan in case your first plan doesn't come through? We are all afraid to have let down expectations... but sometimes that fear to be disappointed, only brings in more disappointment and blocks us from our dreams.
Dream big, expect the best and plan for your gifts to be delivered.
