I had never really “believed” in manifestation. I guess I couldn’t see the real truth of how it could work, but I recently read more into it and all of the amazing success stories and thought I’d give it a go.
I am now a believer, I 110% believe manifestation works and it’s transformed my life! But I’ll talk about why in another blog post. Today, I wanted to run through a conversation I had with somebody recently.
About two weeks ago, I met somebody who had a similar outlook on life in regards to growth, manifesting, personal development and generally anything that makes us a better person for us.
We got into a bit of my background which led me to tell him about the car accident which caused my back injury. I have always described it as a back injury which will, unfortunately, cause me pain for the rest of my life. So, I actually said those words to him. He turned around to me and actually said: “so you’re choosing to be in pain for the rest of your life”.
Of course, I defended myself and said: “no, that’s what the doctor told me and right now, years after the accident, I’m still in pain”. He repeated himself “so you’re choosing to be in pain for the rest of your life”. I stood there in a little bit of shock. I had just met this person and while we spoke for twenty minutes or so, I don’t really know him and he certainly doesn’t know my back injury.
He could tell I was put off and asked me “why did I manifest the car accident?”.
At this point, I wanted to leave the conversation. I was thinking, why on earth would I have WANTED a car accident to happen. Why on earth would I want this horrible pain for my entire life? Clearly, he didn’t know me and that was that.
Don’t get me wrong, he is a lovely person and we obviously have a lot in common with our views on life, but I really just felt like that was the last conversation we would have.
I went home that night and his question kept repeating in my mind. I just couldn’t shake it. Why did I manifest the car accident?
A few hours later, I jumped in the shower (where all the good stuff comes to my mind!) and it dawned on me. I did manifest the car accident.
To be clear, I did not want a car accident and I didn’t want to have to go through the pain that I have, but I did manifest the car accident for other reasons.
Before the car accident, I worked as a very stressful and busy sales assistant. I worked crazy hours but I was paid really, really well. I always thought the money outweighed the torture I endured each day.
After a lot of self-growth and development, I now know that wasn’t the case, but at my age, making that money, I thought I would stay there forever. I was good at my job and I made good money, why would I ever want to leave?
Right now, as I look back on the job, I remember a few main things.
I had absolutely no passion for the industry. I did not enjoy waking up every day. I certainly did not enjoy spending 10-12 hours a day there. I spent so much time working and missed a lot of events. I specifically remember the bathroom I would cry in. I remember the anxiety attack I had next to the printer in the reception area.
Luckily, everybody I worked with was beautiful and the majority of them were very supportive and helpful during those tough days – which was most of the time. I made some amazing friends who I still speak to now and know I could call if I ever needed anything. I just now know that job position was just not for me.
Everything you do in life, everything you say and think leads to manifesting something, even when you don’t think you are. If you think you’re going to have a bad day, you will. If you wake up and say you’re going to have beautiful and meaningful conversations today, you will.
You are always manifesting and however that something shows up in your life, is up to you by the words you choose, the thoughts you have and the habits you create.
For example, I manifested something horrible – a car accident causing a back injury, but I also manifested something incredible – an event which shaped me and caused me to choose my passion and growth over everything else.
I manifested my car accident because I did not enjoy my job and I wanted a way out.
Take a moment to think about a time you have manifested something, good or bad. Remember, you are manifesting every second of every day.
