Do you believe in manifestation or even have a certain curiosity about it?  I would imagine that, if you’re in my world, you probably have come across the notion of manifestation and even practised it.

What manifestation is not …

It is a major part of an awareness of a process to be aware of what it is not and so I’ll offer to you that manifestation is not …

a) think ‘oh that might be nice’ and whoosh it’s there … nor is it

b) asking for someone to pay for something for you … and it most definitely isn’t

c) controlling the lottery!

So what is it ?

I question everything. Always have. And will make sure of facts before writing as much as I can. Checking out info is much easier these days with the internet and all … and yet also more essential to ensure our facts are correct – especially where astrology is concerned and here is a link to an article I wrote a while ago ‘Myths about Astrology’

However back to manifestation and what it actually is!

Manifestation requires our intention and also aligned actions. It is also in the act of believing something is there / is happening / is ready     

There are great planetary energies which can assist with setting our intentions and creating the best, optimum, conditions for taking aligned actions. Working with the rhythm of the Moon would be one such helpful aspect and, of course, other planets also have their absolute usefulness.

Looking for Proof   

I don’t know about you but I like to absolutely know that something ‘is’ before I talk about it. Probably goes back to my corporate career roles which always seemed to involve training others. In fact one role I held for a long time was as a Health and Safety Manager for a large corporation and I trained hundreds to train others all over the UK … I needed to be able to answer questions and think on my feet with accurate information.

If we consider for a moment the way our ancestors would have viewed air travel – they would have seen us having the ability to fly around the globe in a metal tube.  And their astonishment would have been immense at our supermarket shelves displaying food from different countries and seasons – all available to us within a short car journey from our homes.  Our ancestors would have seen such magic in the way we lead our lives today.

I’m minded of an instance a year or so ago when the trains were on strike and I’d been to London.  At the train station the gates were shut, departure boards blank and no-one was going anywhere.

𝔸𝕟𝕕 𝕀 𝕝𝕖𝕥 𝕘𝕠 𝕠𝕗 𝕖𝕩𝕡𝕖𝕔𝕥𝕒𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟.   𝕀 𝕜𝕟𝕖𝕨 𝕀𝕕 𝕘𝕖𝕥 𝕙𝕠𝕞𝕖.   𝕀 𝕜𝕟𝕖𝕨 𝕀 𝕟𝕖𝕖𝕕𝕖𝕕 𝕥𝕠 𝕖𝕒𝕥.

So I took my five bags (yes I had packed for a week rather than 2 days) up to the food area and it was heaving.

Within less than a minute I was shown a table, it was cleared and I sat down. Ordered food and drink via the app and there was even a charging socket for my phone by my seat.

How?  𝕀𝕥 𝕛𝕦𝕤𝕥 𝕚𝕤.   𝕀 𝕛𝕦𝕤𝕥 𝕜𝕟𝕖𝕨.

However there is a part of the manifestation process that is not down to ‘chance’ or ‘luck.

We have to take energetic action for alignment … it doesn’t ‘just happen’ …

I’ve been witness to some truly amazing magic from our Universe!  I camped outside in nature for the 1999 total solar eclipse where the totality was across Devon. It was incredible. The birds sang their evening song as the eclipse began and then total silence. And, as the eclipse separated, the birds celebrated ‘a new day’ with a dawn chorus. And our drumming joined up with others from across the totality line. Magical.

And then there was the lunar standstill on the Isle of Harris in 2007. Standing in the stone circle at Callanish – no words to describe just how special that was.

And I’m left with wondering whether we lose track of what true manifestation is in the noise of need for things.  Perhaps the real true manifestation is in being aware of our feelings and emotions whenever something joyful is happening.  By being curious enough to ask questions in order to grow and evolve and continue to learn.  By believing in the power of the human mind to explore.

Being Present

How often do you give yourself permission to be present and to fully savour the beauty of where you are and use all of your senses?

I’ve just added a video called ‘Being Present’ into the Tarot Course available in my shop (click here for more information) because it really is a part of our human-ness that we get to choose our times for growth and rest and also whether we will listen to our own inner guidance or not.

I’d love you to let me know what you think of manifestation and how it has happened for you!
