My husband and I had been talking about getting a new car. So, I figured I would manifest one.
One of the tricks to using visualization is to picture something that really pinches you. I’m not a car buff, so I was having a hard time finding a specific car to visualize. However, my husband’s dream car is a black Ford Mustang, and since I think he would look super sexy driving one, I decided that’s what I was going to manifest.
The first place where many go wrong is by constantly visualizing the process of how to get where you want to be rather than visualizing being there. You may not even realize you are doing this. By thinking through all the possible challenges, blocks, conflicts, and steps to any situation, you are inadvertently manifesting all of those things because that thinking through is visualizing!
Instead of seeing yourself jump through all the hoops to reach your goal, visualize yourself already there! This is the trick to manifesting a result rather than manifesting a never-ending process.
So, I focused on the end result: black Ford Mustang, sitting in my driveway, me feeling happy about seeing it there. Just 30 seconds of really feeling that a few times throughout my day.
Now at this time, we were renting a room to a Duke grad student. He had been living with us for over a year and never brought a girl home. Me being me and interested in everyone finding love, I wanted to see him in a good relationship, so I would say things like, “You know you can bring a girl home anytime. We’re totally cool with that.”
Less than a week after I started my car-manifesting-visualization, I woke up one morning to a black Ford Mustang sitting in my driveway!!! But, it didn’t belong to my husband. It belonged to the girl that our roommate just started dating. In fact, this Mustang was in our driveway quite a bit, and I was very happy to see it there. This stuff really works!!! I manifested exactly what I had visualized. The Universe has a great sense of humor!
It’s true that a Mustang is probably not the most practical car for a growing family. I think the Universe had my best interest in mind and was giving me a chance to visualize and manifest something a bit more sensible. But, I had the right idea.
Next, I decided to manifest a minivan. I even got the kids involved. We all visualized riding to school in a car big enough to seat seven. Still, I hadn’t expected for my husband to total his car. But, when he did, he said, “Why don’t we get you a minivan and I’ll take your car.”
This stuff really works.
