The Nectarine Story
I’m a big believer in manifestation and the Law of Attraction. Thoughts and emotions are energy, so why couldn’t you think something into your life? Like attracts like, right?
So let me tell you a story of my own about manifesting. A few years ago I manifested a nectarine. Yes, a nectarine. I bet you were expecting me to say money, cars or something expensive. Sorry, nope just a nectarine, and it was delicious. I wanted to start small and I know it’s been a few years since I’ve practiced this. I want to try it again and see if I can manifest something bigger, maybe a watermelon this time?
Anyway, I was testing manifesting out, and at the time I had a thing for nectarines so every day for a week I would think about having a delicious nectarine. I pictured the nectarine to be in the fruit bowl at home, just one nectarine. Fast Forward to three weeks later and I had forgotten about the whole thing, but one day I walk into the kitchen and yes you guessed it, the nectarine was there. Just one perfect delicious nectarine. I asked my mum where she got it from, she said a friend had given her a few fruits just the day before. I was blown away. Now I know some people might think it could just be a coincidence but still it’s fun to believe the universe will give you what you ask for. And that is why they say “be careful what you wish for”.
How Did I Do This?
Sure, I thought about the nectarine a lot and that had something to do with it, but it was the moment when I released the thought that it finally arrived into my experience. So releasing a thought brings it into our reality, it helps to manifest what it is you put so much energy into thinking about. It is also important to note that when we think about something we want or don’t want if you feel the feeling of having what you are manifesting, it speeds up the process. But if you are emitting a feeling of desperation, that won’t get you anywhere. You have to be happy with where you are currently at and what you already have. This is called gratitude or appreciation.
When You Resist It Persists
This is true for negative thoughts. When you think about something your energy aligns with whatever it is you’re thinking about, so of course if you constantly think about it you will attract that into your life. Which can sometimes be a good thing. But the universe will bring you what you think you deserve, which is why we need to be aware of our thoughts and realise how valuable you are.
The most typical thing people tend to think about is spiders and other creepy crawlies. The more you think about spiders the more likely you are to see one. This happens to my aunty all the time. She has always been terrified of them and she complains about how they’re always in her house. Somehow she seems to find them anywhere she goes.
How Do You Become Aware Of Your Thoughts?
When the thought of a spider, or whatever it is you don’t want to attract pops up let is pass and focus your attention on what you do want. Don’t linger on what you don't want long enough to put energy into it. Don’t try to force yourself to stop thinking about it either, let it happen naturally. If someone tells you to stop thinking about a song from The Lion King all you’re going to think about is The Lion King. So, don’t try to push it out of your mind, just acknowledge and release.
How To Surrender
Try to redirect your focus on things you want. Bringing something into your experience through feelings, because as I said before; thoughts and emotions are energy. It is so much easier to manifest something when you know how it makes you feel. If you can imagine getting that watermelon or even BMW and it makes you feel something then sweetie it will be arriving into your life soon, but only if you are close to being on a vibrational match to it. That is probably why a watermelon would be easier because you think a BMW is too rich, which means your in poverty thinking. Bridge those thoughts and create new beliefs about money. Remember you're valuable enough to own whatever you want, you just need to believe and feel it.
Have You Got Your Own Manifestation Story?
If you have any stories of your own I'd love to hear them. I know my nectarine story isn't gobsmacking, but I remember how cool it felt to see what I had pictured in my head actually become reality. So, please leave your stories below in the comments if you have any. Even the smallest thing you manifested is a huge accomplishment.
