I’m a huge fan of not taking things too seriously.
“Serious” isn’t usually a vibe that delivers me delightful things.
And anyyone who’s read Slacker Manifesting knows I’m a proponent of not trying too hard.
Sometimes giving up is exactly what calls in the big magic!
Case in point: the other day a coach texted a note of encouragement for a big project on my plate. “You can do it!” she enthused …
When in fact I was trying not to do it. I could feel myself slipping into “anxious obsessing overworking it” territory, and knew that carefree, easy and light was the way to go on that one.
Letting go is often the best way to allow the dream to unfold.
But there are other times when the way to alignment calls for a more militant approach.
Like when gremlins are out of control and having their way with me, sometimes I have to get my Alpha on and put a stop to that once and for all.
That’s when I lay down the rules about what I’m allowed to think and what is 100% absolutely off limits.
The same way you promise yourself you’re not going to even consider sleeping with that guy again. You’re done!
Or how you’re never ever going to let the stylist talk you into something “just for a change” again. Lesson learned!
It reminds me how I had to get serious with myself when I quit my job to start a coaching practice, with no clients in sight.
My auto-loop thoughts went like this: “Uh oh. This isn’t going to work. You’re going to have to get a job.”
Those thoughts are simply unacceptable for a girl who doesn’t want a job.
Because that is not an instruction that gives Universe any room to deliver me what I want.
So I got strict with myself, and every time I felt that loop starting to play again, I’d put a stop to it: “No. That’s not what I’m creating.” (Spoken in a voice that means business.) “What I’m creating is ‘I’m a brilliant coach in high demand.'”
No wiggle room.
No ifs ands or buts.
Here’s how it is for me.
And then I give Universe a strong sentence or two as confidently and authoritarian as I can conjure.
Because some things are simply not optional.
(It helps if you’ve had an unruly dog or child or hubby so you’ve had good practice at your “I mean it” voice.)
If you’ve got a little somethin’ somethin’ you’re working on that isn’t coming to fruition the way you’d like, maybe it’s time to rein those gremlin thoughts in like a boss. Say what you want like you mean it, eliminating any room for other options.
It’s not the approach I use all the time, but every once in a while, it does the trick.
With the world’s largest ever lottery being drawn this Wednesday for a projected $1.4 billion win, here are five less common manifesting tips to give yourself a law of attraction advantage in winning this lottery …
Lottery Winning Tip #1:
While many players imagine what they’d do with their winnings, you can put additional odds in your favor by acknowledging how your life wouldn’t change when you come into a huge money windfall.
By recognizing how your life already matches that of a big lottery winner, you create nice alignment to that outcome.
For example, when you win the lottery, you’d probably have the same name, right? You might keep your same spouse. Maybe your hair would be the same. And you’d still like the same food, still love the same shows and music …
My point being that something’s gonna be the same, and identifying how you are already living a lottery winning life is a great way to do exactly that.
For example, I would still be feeding the same foster kittens, and volunteering for the same rescue group, and doing the same work that I do with fellow creators now. I’ll never give up my ’66 Caprice no matter how much money I have, and I’d still have the same friends and family.
I’d still go to Master Gardener class next week and I’d still love watching The Good Wife with my favorite kitty on my lap. I’ll still enjoy spinach salads with blue cheese dressing, still wear lots of purple, and still not have a cell phone. I’ve got a lot of overlap already!
Put less emphasis on what would be different and instead spotlight how you’re already living the life of a big winner. 🙂
Lottery Winning Tip #2:
Remember that as a conscious creator you get to play outside of the odds. (Odds are for muggles.) Others might feel like there’s a puny chance of winning, but that’s an instruction you don’t have to buy into.
Especially when you practice the first tip, you amp up your vibration of being a big winner. If you’re going to play the odds, create your own and put them in your favor. (Like my dad who says he jokes that he has a 50% chance of winning. Either he wins or he doesn’t. ha!)
Don’t buy into the “ridiculously thin chance of winning” story. As you (dominantly) think, so shall it (dominantly) be.
Lottery Winning Tip #3:
Bashar tells us that the best way to win the lottery isn’t to intend that you buy the winning ticket, but rather to choose the reality where your numbers are the winning numbers. Might seem a subtle distinction, but one worth engaging.
Remember what multiple worlds theory says – there is a reality where your ticket is the winning ticket. There is a parallel reality where you are the winner.
Lottery Winning Tip #4:
Love your life as it already is without needing a windfall of money to make it better. Hoping or waiting for a financial intervention to deliver your dream life is for chumps. You know how to love life right now, already. Get busy doing that and who cares whether you win this one or not?
Lottery Winning Tip #5:
Buy a ticket. Yes, Universe can manage “impossible” things all the time, but how ’bout making it easier by actually playing the lottery? Treat it as the “inspired action” part of the conscious creation formula.
My last suggestion on this subject – get clear about what you really want and be open about the multitude of ways it could arrive. Lottery wins are fabulous, but there are plenty of other ways you can get what you want, too. 😉
