Do you believe in manifestation?
I have a lifelong friend who spent at least 20 years of her life raising potbellied pigs. She acquired all of them as piglets and did a beautiful job raising them until every single one of them reached their natural passing. One day, when she looked into the barn stall at her last elderly pig, which was now 14 years old and at his end, she thought, “What am I going to do now?” All these years she had a routine of taking care of them and was in her “comfort zone.” I visited her this past week and discovered that she is involved with driving horses in an event which is called Combined Driving Event (CDE). She and her husband has invested money into this sport and has acquired 2 driving horses, a carriage, a trailer, and all the accessories that go with it.
The competition courses are segmented into 3 courses or phases
1) Dressage– (a French term, most commonly translated to mean “training”) is a path and destination of competitive horse training, with competitions held at all levels from amateur to the Olympics. Its fundamental purpose is to develop, through standardized progressive training methods, a horse’s natural athletic ability and willingness to perform, thereby maximizing its potential as a riding horse.
2) Marathon-Shows the endurance of the horse and
3) Cones-Proves the remaining agility of the horse after the previous 2 events.
Some of the purposes of the sport is competition, status, control, and a way to challenge yourself and your horse. What is the ultimate win? A ribbon. There are no cash awards. There are 2 categories, amateur and professional and the differentiation between the two is the amount of money and time invested.
When I visited her I asked, “How did you get into this? She said, “It just happened.” I’m here to tell you that is not the case. Things don’t just happen. The truth is she knew her piggies would be gone and her mind told her she needed to fill the void. She started investigating other possible animals to replace them. Her husband seemed to take a fondness to miniature donkeys. She visited a veterinarian friend and inquired about owning donkeys. Her friend asked, “What are you planning to with them?” She answered, “I don’t know. Maybe have them pull a carriage?” Her friend said have you ever thought about driving horses? Do you want to try it? In less than a half hour she found herself behind the reigns of a driving horse which she called, “The Golden Pony.” She didn’t know it at the time, but her instant attraction to the horse planted the seed to “someday” own that horse. The rest is history. She actually manifested that horse being in her barn, and it wasn’t until a year and half later that the golden pony was hers. Today she is active in the CDA, and it didn’t “just happen.” This is manifestation at its finest.
Our thoughts manifest all the time. Most people are unaware of it. They summarize events as “it just happened” or “it was just a coincidence.” If you have heard about manifestation (it’s a part of metaphysics), then it might be time to do some research. If you haven’t, again, it will be to your benefit to find out for yourself the tremendous potential you have with your thoughts.
There are hundreds of articles about manifestation, and it is up to you to make an educated decision as to what you believe!
Here is a post I commented on May 22, 2011 about a metaphysical manifestation of a black eye. Some of you may remember this article…
This is a fascinating story! I believe you! Isn’t life strange? I haven’t had your experience of a black eye, but you have got me wondering about “bruises” I would get once in a while, such as on my leg or arm and wondering where they came from because I didn’t experience any hits or falls.
The manifestation of thought from the mind to reality is a concept I have recently been introduced to. I attended the Unstoppable Entrepreneur Event in San Diego and met a young man with the name of “Trinity.” He lives in Nicaragua and actually traveled from his Nicaraguan town to Mexico and to San Diego to attend the UI event.
He explained to us that he left Nicaragua without money or transportation but was able to make it to the event simply by the power of thought and manifesting rides and food along the way! He actually made it to the event and returned to Nicaragua using the same method. As he explained his experience, people would ask questions and he would say, I would think and concentrate that I need a ride, and a ride would show up! The whole trip was like that and he actually arrived in San Diego on time. This is an amazing example of manifestation.
Okay, so now you can say I sound like a fruitcake too, but I’m convinced. Your story reinforces the “Trinity” story.
The mind is a powerful tool and if we can recognize it, then we can bask in its positive gifts.
It’s so nice that you met your life partner. Instinctively you knew she would become your wife, and she did!
