I believe this is just one more of our natural abilities that we just don't know about. I found out by accident.
When it works for me I've found that one just thinks in a light way, I wish I had _________, By a light way I mean without desperation, or pleading, no heavy emotion, no demand. Just sort of wouldn't it be nice if.....
I'll tell you now about another time, beside the atlas, when I manifested something in my life.
I needed some pots for some plants. Simple. But I didn't want the plain clay pots I wanted some extra detailing. Some decoration on the pots. I needed several. A fairly big one, a medium size one, and a small one. And couldn't afford to buy them.
I had a full time job at the time that didn't pay much but left my mind free to write, no pressure, and did child care on the side to help make ends meet and also because I loved the kids!
Shortly after I had that desire to have such pots I came home one night late from childcare. Maybe one in the morning. As I enter my building there is a space around the corner from the mail boxes and people often leave something they are letting go of that is in fine shape. I have found books there and left some of my own as well.
That night there were 3 clay pots for plants. Large, medium, and small. They were a set with subtle attractive decorative elements added to the clay before it hardened or was put in a kiln. The smallest one also had two iron rings for hanging. Just what I wanted! And I was quite surprised to find just what I'd expressed a desire for!
So try it. See what happens. But if you start out with the idea that this is impossible for you and just a coincidence for me it probably won't happen. Just let go of your views for a moment on what is possible and what is not. Be open to the possibility. And see what happens.
Let's celebrate the 4th of July recognizing our independence from information that we were taught or others were taught before us but has been discovered to be outdated.
The earth is not flat and we can manifest.
