Recently, I began seeing the number eleven everywhere and had no idea why but I felt it noteworthy and pondered it often. At one point I stumbled upon an article about the significance of numbers, especially eleven, while browsing the internet. Much of what I read mentioned how the number eleven, in particular 11:11, was the Universe communicating to us that right now, we have the power of intense manifestation possibilities. It is also a reminder to focus on our thoughts and behaviors because of what we have done to ourselves. We are improperly using our God given abilities to manifest in our lives because we do not realize our infinite potential. This is why we are seeing weather and Earth changes occur more often and more severely that we ever have. This is why we face global difficulties on many fronts. It is time to come together and focus on a simultaneous vision of how this world could be. We must renew our connection to the divine source. I didn’t really know what to think of this, one way or the other, but I read it with an open mind, and like anything, I am willing to try it on for size before immediately rebuking it as impossible.
And so I did. I put a ton of conscious emphasis on positive thinking. I lived it. I found myself in need of constant focus on re-training my thoughts and still it takes much effort to make sure I am separating my ego from my inner voice. By doing this we eliminate the presence of fear based thought processes. I released these fears by illuminating the situation through my connection to my true self and the Divine source. This process was difficult but when I began to grasp it and apply small scale to difficulties in my own life, things began falling into place. I’m not claiming I’ve mastered anything, in fact I’m still learning this new and difficult lesson, but whether what I experience is coincidence or something substantial on the spiritual front, I don’t know that I care. I am happier when I think positive. I am satisfied living true to myself, or really truly trying to. I like to focus on things that make me grateful. I enjoy filling my days with love and I’m going to keep doing it.
So you all know my intense passion for all things green, sustainable, recyclable…specifically Earthships. I’ve been really focusing on manifestation in this area. With both my husband and I going to school, raising three kids and only one income it’s hard to imagine that gathering the money and supplies needed to build our own is within reach. But I have to change this mindset! And so I prayed, I focused, I visualized. I saw myself living the life I want, in my sustainable home. I saw those I loved around me, participating in this rewarding lifestyle. I planned how I wanted to build my home, and where. Anytime the doubtful voice of my ego piped up “No way do you have the money, time or experience to do this!” I would laugh and tell “Poindexter” (my ego’s pet name) to go away, I have this handled with the help of my Guides and my Higher Self.
I told my Mom and Dad to watch “The Garbage Warrior” a documentary all about Mike Reynolds and his amazing Earthship homes. Within a week my mother wanted to build an Earthship greenhouse! I was so excited that I had others excited about the many possibilities these structures allow us!
Within two weeks I was working for my Mother in a sponsored community garden harvesting food for shareholders when I asked a co-worker if she had heard of such structures. “Oh yes!” she said and went on to explain that she had a degree in Green Building, hands on experience in building such structures and even had plans for an Earthship Greenhouse! I couldn’t believe it! You must understand that it is hard to find someone with experience in green building in Northern Idaho and surrounding areas. Trust me, I’ve looked. The epicenter of this cutting edge green lifestyle is in New Mexico and Arizona! I was amazed at how things are coming together!
This is just one example of the power of manifestation and positive thinking in my life, but I could go on forever and tell you about the massage therapist who works at a very successful resort who offered to hand my cards out to people in search of chakra cleansing/balancing (talk about major business growth)! The people who have entered my life and opened up huge windows of opportunity….I could go on forever and ever. My point is, when will you try? When will you devote yourself to conscious thought? How will you know if it works until you really throw yourself into it? Will you manifest consciously or continue on the path you are on? Whatever your choice I wish you peace and loving guidance on your path to personal self discovery, and many blessings on your journey!
