I never knew I had the power to change speed limits and fill in pot holes with my mind. But, apparently, I do. And let me tell you, you can do it, too. It is very cool to see manifesting power smooth the road before you quite literally.
While most people complain that traffic and roads are getting worse and worse, all the paths I drive on the regular keep getting better and better in various ways. Like many others, I spend a great deal of time commuting. It amazes me that the same distance I travel throughout a typical weekday would take hours or even days 2oo years ago.
Yet, we shoot ourselves all over town these days, and sometimes traffic and road conditions can make or break a day for us. This fuel propelled time can be a wonderful opportunity to exercise your manifesting abilities. Especially because we often feel very attached to the outcome of road conditions.
My personal, car-friendly miracles began a couple of years ago. After dropping one kid at school, I would drive across town to get the other one to daycare on time. Staying right at a fork in the highway, a sign read “Reduce Speed Ahead,” and the speed would go down 10 mph for no good reason! There were no exits or even curves for another .87 miles!
After a few years of complaining about this, I thought that someone should propose this change, because it was only logical. I wondered who to contact and said out loud, “It’s best for all that the speed limit remain 65 for another ¾ mile.” My spine upright, head balancing lightly on my neck, gentle smile, arm sweeping forward from heart out to the open road.
Then, one day a few weeks later, I veered right onto this road, thinking about calling the State Department, and saw the “Reduce Speed” sign had been moved up the road about ¾ of a mile; the exact change I envisioned! Goosebumps all the way to the tip of my nose and huge gratitude that my commute could flow a bit faster.
Not long after, a stretch of 15-501 went from 55 to 60! This happens to be a road that has connected major aspects of my life since I was three years old. I had been wishing for this raise in speed for over 30 years! It felt like the Universe was flirting with me.
Inspired by this response, I thought about other road changes I desired.
At another fork in another highway, there was a lane with diagonal lines across it (no vehicles allowed) that opened into a usable lane 150 feet down the line. Before the fork, three lanes were reduced to one, causing a lot of red tail lights and curse words flying out of drivers’ mouths. It was like some medieval punishment; not letting anyone use this perfectly good lane.
First getting a clear picture of what I wanted. Then, whenever I approached the fork, I began stating, “It’s best for all to have access to this lane.” Seeing the traffic flowing with more ease, and again with the arm from the heart thing.
Less than a week later, a road crew painted over the diagonal lines and opened the lane for traffic! However, the regular commuters are still in the habit of shifting out of that lane, but not me. From day one, I’ve been using it to cruise by the other vehicles with a smile on my face and a song in my heart.
The next month, I tried this technique out on some potholes along my morning commute. “It’s best for all that this road get smoothed out,” thinking tenderly of my tires and alignment. The next day, (seriously, not kidding) the holes were filled. My eyes got so wide, and my body bounced in a happy dance of amazement. Wow, what power I wield!
Yet all this time, I’ve had a giant pothole at the end of my block. I go by it on my way to everywhere. So big it’s constantly filled with water. If I slam into it, not only does my alignment take a bashing, I get a muddy splash up the side. Month after month of wanting it filled, saying “It’s best for all that this dang hole get filled.” But, no result.
The disappointment was mounting. Negativity quickly set it:
How can I be a Master Roadwork Manifester if I can’t even get the pothole right in front of my house filled?
I am such a fool for thinking any of these changes have anything to do with me.
I’m so terrible at owning my own value, I can’t make a positive change this close to home.
Why am I even wasting my time thinking about this stuff anyways?
Then last Thursday, I kicked all the doubt to the curb and announced to the Universe, “It’s time for that hole to get filled so I can write a bog post about it. It’s best for all if lots of people learn how to manifest better road conditions.” Head light, should released, visioning my road rage ex-boyfriend and masses of commuters practicing this technique and healing traffic and road conditions all over the world!
As I turned onto my street from picking up the kids from school Friday, I saw that the hole was filled! I stopped the car to get out for a better look to make sure my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. I tapped it gently with my toe half expecting it to collapse into a sink hole.
Indeed it is filled! (My kids did not understand why I laid down on the street to take a selfie). I did it! A beneficial and tangible result of focusing manifesting power. You can do it, too. Think of what’s best for everyone, and let’s manifest a smoother ride for all!
May the power be with you!
