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.
