As Easy as Manifesting School Buses

Children are the greatest manifestors because of their ability to see the world with new, wonder filled imagination. Their thoughts and feelings are raw and unfiltered, not (yet) tainted by doubt and worry from the adults in their lives.

Some children love cars, for others, it’s unicorns. For my four year old daughter, Ella Samone, it’s school buses. She looks forward to the day she will ride on a school bus. She pretends she’s a passenger on a school bus while I drive her to daycare. My vehicle transforms into an imaginative school bus in her imagination. She also has the uncanny ability to manifest several yellow buses rolling by her each day. I kid you not, if Ella Samone wants to see a school bus at 8 PM, she will! People gift her yellow school bus toys. Just a few weeks ago, we drove by a lot full of non-operational school buses, to Ella Samone’s delight. A long, yellow school bus rides alongside our vehicle on Interstate 80 now and then. Even in the summer or times when one doesn’t expect to see a school bus, one appears.

Ella Samone became the passenger in her mind first, she acted as if she was a passenger and soon enough, she will manifest it on the physical plane. She’s already enjoyed the creative thoughts of bringing school buses to her experience. The actual ride will be just the icing on the cupcake for her.

Ella Samone didn’t allow limiting thoughts to drown out the creative thought of seeing school buses every day. She used all her senses to imagine herself in a school bus. Adults can learn from a child’s tenacity surrounding what they draw into their experience.

We can be like the child who sees only the possibilities through vivid visualization. Our thoughts are influential, in their purest state. It is when we pile on the doubts, worries, and resentments from ourselves and others that the influential thought loses its influence. We also do not allow our minds to imagine long enough to shape a new creative thought. How do we become child like in our ability to allow our desires to remain in their unadulterated version, so that they are realized on the physical plane?

  • We have to allow the creative thought to come in and titillate our souls.
  • We have to be in a place of receiving the creative thought.
  • We have to be what it is we wish to be from that creative thought.
  • We have to celebrate both the birth and the manifestation of the creative thought. We do this by living as if it were already here.

Manifesting something as small as seeing school buses everyday is how we practice for manifesting the big castles in our lives. Look to our children for inspiration on how to be in the moment and filled with rich imagination.

Your Problem’s New Street Name is Opportunity!

Are you saddled with problems? Are you wrapped up in what’s not working, that you’ve neglected to focus on what is working and what opportunities you do have to change your circumstances? Well, a definite must-listen-to-twice Podcast is Rae Zander’s Everyday Attraction’s Friday, July 17, 2015 show, “Getting Current With Who You Have Become” (https://www.unity.fm/episode/EverydayAttraction_071715).

Rae asked in her show, are you loving your life, even when the shit hits the fan? We’ve come here to sometimes muck things up. Life isn’t meant to be one long, easy ride. Can you imagine how boring life would be if everything was vanilla and smooth? Me personally, I like a hellishly fun roller coaster ride to let me know I’m alive.

Stop looking at your problems, as problems! Look at them as answers to your prayers. Money troubles, health issues, relationship woes, career snags, the big Ds (divorce, debt, death), are not here to kill you, they are here because you can sculpt a blob of clay into a beautiful piece of art. The blob of clay is your life waiting for you to create what you want with it. Once you stop looking at your problems as evidence of everything going wrong, switch it around and think of it as everything going right. Practice this with seemingly small “problems” and watch how everything shifts and moves in the “right” direction. Even if you have to remold your clay of areas in your life over and over again, remember there’s no right or wrong way to create your life’s masterpiece.

Now that these areas in your life have your attention, what are you going to do with it? Are you going to continue to manifest more contrast with negative thoughts about your “problems?” Or, are you going to change course and move in a different direction? Maybe a new word to use in place of “problem” is “opportunity.”

The reason more “bad” things happen is because we dwell in the negative emotions that come with dealing with so-called problems. The more angst and anxiety around a certain subject, the more you align to that emotional vibrational frequency. Look at problems as opportunities to do and feel something different.

The truth is, “what’s going on in your bank account today is yesterday’s news,” according to Rae from Everyday Attraction. She opines we’ve already manifested the low funds and crying over the present circumstance is a waste of energy. Sure, you could cry and tell the story to all your friends that you are broke, but guess what? All that’s doing is perpetuating the circumstance you’re trying to move away from. Shift your perception to what it is you DO have and want. That’s why gratitude journals are so useful. They remind us how we are already abundant.

Abundance is not just money. If you can breathe, you are blessed. If you can read this blog post and understand what its saying, you are blessed.  If you have no pain, you are blessed. And, if you have love in your heart and are loved, you are abundantly blessed. Stop telling stories of lack, and start celebrating and holding into gratitude what’s going right in your life.

I love the term “divine discontent.” I read a Facebook post recently from a co-worker asking if her friends knew of any companies that are hiring. I know from working with her that she’s in a highly stressful job and I can relate because three years ago, that was me, too. But, I also know that her discontent is divinely sent. The uncomfortableness of her stressful job has her searching for something better, more in alignment with where she truly wants to be. She may not have articulated it in that fashion, but that’s what it is. She’s calling out for something better because her discontent is showing her she’s unhappy. And, her taking the simple step of asking friends if there are other jobs out there is signaling to herself and the Universe that she’s ready to do something about her discontent.

The uninformed person would whine about their stressful job for years before they decide to change their thinking to open up to new possibilities. But, the enlightened person takes action when they feel the lower vibrational energies stirring inside them. They realize the present circumstance is a manifestation of yesterday’s thoughts. They know their present circumstance does not bound their future – unless they allow it to. Your power is ALWAYS IN THE NOW. Act like the Co-Creator you’ve come to earth to be and get out of the victimhood mentality.

Rae says when you start to shift your perception of what’s going on is when you finally come to a place of finding more balance in your life, no matter what is actually unfolding in the present moment.

Stop looking at problems like fifteen ton weights holding you down and look at them as possibilities to set you free!
