This morning as I was having my hair cut, I recalled many years ago when I told my hairdresser in Nelson, New Zealand that one day I would have my own personal hairdresser. It came out of my mouth so glibly, just as if it was already there. I never knew what my hairdresser thought at the time. She was a lovely woman, but she must have thought I was full of ego or something. She and I were not to know then that I would later marry a man who had been, as one of his many career choices, a hairdresser!
Alan has had a very versatile career path, first in the navy, then as a hairdresser. He paid his way through college with his hairdressing job, and after graduating from college, he went into the electronics world, and finally into his own business. He never lost his hairdressing skill, and is now my personal hairdresser. My statement spoken many years ago in New Zealand has become a reality. May I say, too, that Alan does a wonderful job, and many people have commented on my hair and how lovely it looks!
As I was recalling about what I had said to my former hairdresser in New Zealand, I realized how easily my wish has manifested itself in my life. I have often put my request out there, and although it has not at times manifested immediately, it has in time become a reality. However, I have found it very frustrating in trying to talk to others about this, because most people are of the belief they cannot manifest anything. It is no good asking for something to be manifested, if subconsciously, one believes one cannot do it!
Maitreya taught me that we can all do it, as it is our spiritual heritage. He explains, “This is how we manifest in the spiritual world – by thought, and once we put it out there, it then simply becomes.” Our programming though, on the Earth plane, is so negative. We often hear such phrases used: I can never do it, I will never have the money, I don’t have enough experience, I never win anything etc. These statements and other such connotations re-iterate the fact that we do not have any confidence in our manifesting ability at all. We have no idea of just what is in our subconscious mind and how powerful it can be in stopping our dreams and wishes becoming a reality.
I myself used to be quite negative too, until one day I read a book about changing energy and it changed my life. The change in my life did not take place overnight, and I certainly did not manifest immediately what I asked for. But it did eventually become a reality, as I continued to believe more and more that I WOULD manifest what I needed. I personally do not believe that only certain people can manifest, for we all can do it. We just have to have the faith and the belief we can do it. Just as I have manifested my own personal hairdresser, I have also manifested much more in my life since then.
As I wrote earlier, it is no good asking for something and then counteracting it with a negative statement. One has to BELIEVE it will happen. I now never think about lack or problems in my life; I no longer create them. I cannot believe how well I do in manifesting what I need – just by having faith and believing it will happen. It does work if it is done correctly. You do need to ask specifically for what you need, though. I once asked for a bike, and I got just that – a rickety old bike, which I was able to ride, but I really should have asked for a new bike! Also, Alan constantly reminds me of the fact that in my application for him, I forgot to tick the box which said “must not have attitude”!
Maitreya, who sat with me this morning as I typed this newsletter, said to me, “Tell them to try it, but to be patient.” So there you are, put what you need out there and then watch it happen – that is, as long as you do not counteract it with a negative statement or belief.
