I have been yearning to be able to change certain aspects of my living conditions for quite some time and have felt that I was without the personal power and means to manifest the changes I seek. All along I’ve been letting my angels, guides and masters know about my desires. Recently I accelerated my prayers for new arrangements and asked my “crew” to offer some insight and guidance about having my longed-for changes to manifest at long last.
I was a little taken aback at first when they offered their “shut up!” advice. However, in retrospect, I had to concede their assessment was justified and that I had neglected some of my earliest lessons in angel communication.
I recalled that at the very first Doreen Virtue angel class I attended, she spoke about the importance of asking for what we want – and then sitting back and trusting that our desired outcome would manifest. She compared a prayer to going into a restaurant and placing an order for an item on the menu. “Do you pester the waiter every minute asking if your order was correctly received?” she stated. “Do you doubt that your order will be served?” Well, of course not. We go into a restaurant, place our order and confidently wait for it to be served to us.
I realized that I was indeed guilty of “pestering” my angels. “Now, remember, I want things to happen this way!” I’d say. – Or – “Here are some additional details for you to be aware of.” My gosh! I’d turned into a real nag!
My angels kindly reminded me that “desperation blocks success, and the more you struggle to manifest your desire, the more you push it away.”
“In order to attract what you want,” they continued, “you must give the Universe space to deliver your request. This can only be achieved by getting out of the way so that everything can unfold as it should.” Further, they emphasized, “It isn’t your job to MAKE things happen. It is simply your job to ALLOW them to happen. When you surrender to the Divine and trust, you will receive the best possible outcome.” They also pointed out that "best outcomes" could be something that I had not envisioned or thought of and that my prayers needed to allow for possibilities beyond what I could imagine in my present circumstances.
My angels also pointed out that it is healthy for us to fantasize about how we would like things to be. We can envision ourselves in various scenarios and get an accurate reading about our level of satisfaction and joy if they manifested in the third dimension. Creative visualization is a process that definitely can help us realize our dreams and differs from praying and making demands from God and the Divine beings.
Another bit of guidance my angels offered was that in order for the changes I desire to take place I needed to be in gratitude for my current circumstances. “Make a list of all that you’re thankful for right now,” they urged. So, of course, I did, and the list is much longer than I ever dreamed it could be when I started out.
My sweet angels made their point. Some early lessons have been re-learned. My order has been placed. I’m gratefully in the present and learning the lesson of “patience” to boot. And – when my changes are delivered with God’s timing – you’ll be the first to know. Stay tuned!
