Manifestations and Punctuation

I was listening to an Abraham-Hicks recording form Melbourne Australia (March 24, 2013) and had to stop and write down the following:

(You say) ‘I’m going to like the freshness of a new desire and I’m not going to be unhappy about it not manifesting instantly because it is the object of attention to which I’m flowing my energy. It’s what’s giving me the reason for life. I’m going to have a joyous unfolding. 

You said (when you came here) ‘I’ll go forth and I’ll sift and I’ll sort and I’ll define. And I’ll do my best to line up with what I’ve defined. I will feel the resonance of it. I’ll feel the ease of it. I will feel the alignment of it. I will feel the joy of it. I’ll feel the connection of it, the empowerment of it. I will feel the vitality of it. I will feel the invincibility of my alignment and then…after all that…I’ll get a manifestation. It will be great. Never-ending manifestations to punctuate my alignment.’

(We say) Your manifestations are meant to punctuate your alignment, not to be the reason for it.

Our manifestations are meant to punctuate our alignment!

That last statement really caught my attention. Maybe because as a writer I understand the importance of punctuation. Of course the word means to interrupt or intersperse, to occur at intervals, and it’s meaning goes far beyond the marks we insert in the written word. Nevertheless, an analogy occurred to me.

Punctuation is important. Remove it from the written word and all you’d have is a long string of words making very little sense. Change the punctuation and you can change the entire meaning of a sentence. Having said this, it is first and foremost the words that communicate, that convey a story, that entertain and inform. The punctuation merely highlights and refines the written word. Alone it is meaningless. You’d never rush through a sentence to get to the period at the end. You appreciate the presence and placement of it, but move quickly to the next sentence.

 So it is with manifestation. 

While we certainly appreciate the presence and placement of manifestation in our lives. Once it occurs, we are soon asking, “Now what?”

So often in my life I’ve heard the phrase, “Life is about the journey, not about the destination.” Life is about the joy, not the manifestations. This is one of the major tenets of Abraham’s teaching, yet I’ll admit, I still find myself at times looking to the manifestation to enhance my joy, or underscore my worthiness. 

What I want above all is to appreciate the perfection of my journey, to celebrate the consistency of my quest for joy, and to know the inevitability of alignment―which is my true reason for being. After that I want to enjoy and appreciate the never-ending stream of manifestations that highlight and refine, punctuating my joyous journey with the visible, tangible evidence of my alignment.

What I really want!

Looking back at how certain things have come to me, I see an interesting pattern. I determine that I want something and focus on it, visualize, etc, but even while I feel I am in the vortex, and have released resistance, that thing is still a long time in coming. Then something changes and my desire manifests. The pattern I’m noticing is that the manifestation is slightly different (and always better) than what I thought I wanted.

I think what’s happening is that my desires are so complex, having been added to and amended over time, that I can’t see them clearly. And often I focus on only a part, when the over-all desire has facets and components I’m not aware of.

Years ago, I recall Abraham saying something like: “If you put blue and then yellow into the mix, what you end up with is green.” The problem is we don’t know we want green, we still think we want blue and as long as we stay focused on blue, we can’t receive either. Blue alone is no longer a vibrational match. Green may come our way numerous times but we can’t see it because we’re focused on blue.

I know it’s just fine tuning (or my over-analytical mind wanting to figure things out) but I find this fascinating. There seems to be a point, for me anyway, where my understanding shifts and I get clarity about what I want.

I saw this so clearly last year with a vehicle I wanted.

I was to receive money from my mom’s estate and decided that I wanted to buy a new vehicle. The vehicle I thought I wanted was being held for me at the car dealership while I waited for the details of the estate to be settled. But even with my excitement over finally being able to get a new car and the knowing that it would happen shortly, there was still something going on under my radar, because things came to a halt. Papers got misplaced, letters supposed to be mailed never were, signatures missed on forms that then had to be resent. This went on for months!

Finally, the estate was settled and the cheques mailed out and wouldn’t you know it? Canada post misplaced mine (not my sisters or my brother’s lol). It tok several days to sort that out, but those days were life-changing. I just had to laugh at the whole thing at that point. I know I create my own reality and had no one to blame but things were just getting ridiculous. As I meditated one day I got a huge revelation.

The vehicle on hold for me at Toyota was not what I wanted!

That new vehicle came with debt as I was only putting half down (until that point I thought it was worth it to get a brand new vehicle). In that moment I saw clearly how much I wanted to remain debt free. It was even more important to me than driving a new vehicle. So I looked at used ones and found a perfect 2 year old vehicle, which I am now loving every day! A big part of that joy comes in knowing I have no debt.

I want to add that the vehicle I now have has features I didn’t order on my brand new vehicle, such as leather interior which is so much easier to clean now that I have a dog! I love getting what my Source knows I really want instead of what I think I want!!
