I am always amazed that people try to “manifest” things like getting their book finished, or pray for consistent action-taking in their business. After all, the Universe can’t finish our book for us. God can’t “make us” take action in our business. That’s just something we DO – or not.
The Universe can only treat us the way we treat ourselves.
If we truly take the perspective that we are Creators, that we are, through our origin of Divine Source, the Source of all of our circumstances, and that we are Divine Beings … then we can’t exactly expect an outside “greater” force than ourselves to come to our rescue, to do on our behalf what we have not been willing to do for ourselves.
That would interfere with our free will, wouldn’t it? And free will is the very thing that MAKES us Creators. And so, if God, the Universe, Source, a Higher Power did indeed intercede on our behalf, our Divinity would become invalid.
God cannot value us more than we value ourselves, because we ARE God.
God cannot give us more determination than we are willing to direct towards our goals, because we ARE God.
God cannot cause us to take action on opportunity when we’re afraid, because we ARE God.
In other words, there is no outside force that can intercede on your behalf unless you are willing to first intercede on your OWN behalf. As soon as you act as the powerful Creator that you are, creation can support you. But until you exert your power, all power lies dormant as mere potential.
When we transcend our own fear, reluctance, discomfort, and step out into the unknown because we are willing to give ourselves what we want most …. only then do miracles of manifestation happen.
We have to jump off the cliff, willing to experience flight before the Universe can affirm that we can, indeed, fly.
We can watch other people fly, to help us believe in the possibility of flight.
We can learn all about flying, through books and information products and teachers.
It’s not the same as actually flying.
We can spend a lot of time walking along that cliff, looking for the safest place to jump from, educating ourselves, preparing for flight, preparing to jump, but pulling back in fear time and again, only to go to the next teacher, the next class, the next flying tactic.
And we can pray, and intend, and pray some more for the Universe to finally swoop in, and, when we’re conveniently unaware, shove us off that cliff. Because we can’t find it within ourselves to take the leap. And it would be nice if the Universe then also proved to us that we could fly.
It doesn’t work that way.
If God and the Universe shoved us off the cliff, that would constitute interference with our free will, which is the very means by which we are Divine. It would be God, invalidating itself through its own existence, since we ARE God.
It is deciding that we are worth jumping off the cliff that also gives us the ability to fly.
If you are asking an outside “Higher Power” to do what you are not willing to do for yourself, you are creating a conflict between yourself and Universal Law. And that conflict will always manifest itself as struggle. You are, ultimately, the highest power in your life. Your choices are made manifest, no matter what.
If you truly saw yourself as Divine, how would you treat yourself?
How would you value your Gifts? How would you support your desires?
Are you asking or praying for the Universe to do what you are not willing to do for yourself?
To your infinite Divine nature,
