Look up. The aliens are here.
I wanted to throw something completely wacky out there, so you didn’t find the rest of this completely crazy. Please, as you continue to read, remember that I ain’t preaching no dogma, nor is this any kind of exposition on the true nature of consciousness.
This is just for fun. Silly. Because I’m insanely curious to see how many of you can do this with favorable outcomes over the weekend.
First, let me be frank and say that the experiment is borne from the whole law of attraction idea. (If you’re unfamiliar with the idea of the law of attraction, it is sort-of, roughly, this: That like attracts like, and that your thoughts are powerful attractants. If you can harness the power of your thoughts, if you can steward them relentlessly, if you will, you can attract into your life whatever conditions you desire.)
I adore ideas like this, but I’m no staunch believer. I approach this like I approach everything in my life: Skeptically, but with a giant dash of hope.
This experiment, while kind-of based on this “law,” isn’t for new-age woo-woos. It doesn’t matter what you believe, because this is just a lighthearted test of sorts. Just to see what happens.
Let me tell you a quick story, and then I’ll tell you how to do the experiment.
I Can Manifest Anything I Don’t Care That Much About
You’ve probably done this, too. Only many of you probably call it coincidence. It may very well be that. I’m not the boss of reality, so I have absolutely no clue.
But my friend, Ashley, and I like to run around “creating things” all the time, just for fun. For example, one day we were eating in a very small cafe and I turned to her and said, “Wouldn’t it be fun to see someone wearing a red hat?” Not three minutes later, a middle aged woman walked in wearing a red ball cap.
Another fun recent one? I was telling her I’d really like to pick up a pallet and make a “pillow-sitting” coffee table out of it. We left the house to go eat, and a mile down the road made a U-turn right in front of a pile of pallets on the side of the road – out for anyone to take.
I have scads of different examples I can give you, but this is the one that made me want you guys to goof around with me and see if you can make it happen too.
If you haven’t read any Wayne Dyer, in one of his books I just read (which is why I started messing around with the concept again), he suggests “trying out your ability to manifest” by imagining something fun and easy to “let go of.” Like a feather. So I imagined finding a feather, and two hours later, I bumped into my cat on the stairs.
He had pulled a huge blue feather off of one of his toys and was flopping around with it. Much like this:
“That’s not at all manifesting. That’s just stupid coincidence.” This is what you’re saying to yourself. I said that too, along with, “Nice try, but this doesn’t count. The feather was already in the house.”
So I left the dumb cat to his weird ways and went on about my business for the next two days. Yesterday, I went to take some stuff out to the recycling bin (which is about 50 yards from my door) and just as I was reaching my destination, I noticed something blue in the grass ahead.
And … it was.
The dumb blue feather. Which had somehow escaped our house and flown through the air (in some of the mighty wind we’ve had recently) to a place far from our front door, but in the direct path of my eyes.
I picked it up, decided to tell the universe or whoever, “I get it. Okay. Fine. It counts now.”
And the cat is happy again.
I could give you a hundred other examples, but I know it’s hard to read what someone else has experienced (especially like this) without complete and utter disbelief peppered with a helping of eye rolling.
And that – THAT – is why we’re going to make this an experiment for the weekend (mine is already successful, because I already “found” the thing I was going to “manifest” within an hour of “creating” it – a happy face).
Manifesting Your Feathers Experiment!
Okay, because this isn’t some long-winded explanation of the law of attraction, the first thing you have to do is this:
Let go of any preconceived notions about yourself. Just for a minute. Again, this isn’t testing “God” or your personal power or anything. THIS IS JUST A SILLY EXPERIMENT.
Don’t be serious. I’m not.
Now, here are the rules:
- If you don’t feel peaceful or gentle at the moment, get yourself into a space of happiness. Let go of whatever’s making you icky right now and just smile. Okay? SMILE. Okay.
- Now, imagine finding something or seeing something. Like a feather. Or a doll. Or a red hat. The only rule is that you cannot pick something that you’re insanely attached to (like a thousand dollars if you’re really hurting for money or a new car or something that really has you down). Just pick something easy. For this silly experiment. Just something easy.
- Close your eyes and feel how you’d feel having or seeing whatever you just picked. Smile at the thought of it. Know you’re going to see/find it.
- Now. Let it go. Seriously. Just forget that you ever wanted it and don’t dwell on whether or not you’re finding it or seeing it. THAT is the cardinal rule. You HAVE to let it go. (But you still have to be observant in order to experience it).
- Remember, we’re not making the rules of how it shows up. It has NEVER worked for me to say, “When I’m at lunch tomorrow, I’m going to experience my waiter handing me a purple stuffed animal.” Maybe you can make that work for you, but I kinda doubt it. You have to be open to it showing up whenever and however it shows up. If it’s a dumb blue feather that your cat tore off his toy, then that’s what it is, goshdarnit.
- When it shows up, come back here and TELL ME ABOUT IT. Gosh, there’s nothing I want more right now than to share the fun of the success of this experiment.
Oh, and those of you who are prone to make it happen, it does NOT count if you decide you’re going to see a pink agate stone and then you run down to a gem shop. That’s cheating. You’re better than that.
Let me reiterate, I don’t care what you believe: If you believe it’s just coincidence, then that’s so super cool. Sometimes I believe that, too. Just promise me – pinky effin’ swear – that you’ll come back and report your mere coincidence.
GO. MANIFEST YOUR FEATHERS.
And have a delightful weekend, mkay?
This is kinda off topic, but I’d like to ask which Wayne Dyer books are recommended? I’m really interested in finding out more information about the law of attraction. Thanks!
This reminds me of the old saying about the man that kept praying to win the lottery. One of his friends prayed for a family, and he got married and his wife got pregnant and had a baby, prayer answered. Another friend prayed to catch a record fish, so he went fishing every weekend and caught the biggest fish that was ever caught in that lake, prayer answered. Another friend kept praying that her father would get well, and brought him to doctors everywhere until they found one that could help him with his illness, prayer answered. Now the man that kept praying to win the lottery got angry, because his prayer was never answered. Mind you, he never did buy a lottery ticket….
I was at work and had a really nice Scottish customer. Suddenly I thought imagine if today there are loads of Scottish people. I must have served twenty in one day! I have the power!
I saw this post probably 2 weeks ago, and decided to give it a shot. I really believe in this principle, but at the same time I have trouble believing that I have the power to manifest anything. Well, I focused on 3 heads-up pennies. A day or two afterwards, I saw 2 pennies on my desk (previously hidden under mounds of debris, and uncovered by chance). One was heads-up. No dice, universe. Days went by. Then a week. I pretty much forgot about this altogether until I went to put my shoes on this morning. I glanced over, and on the floor next to me were 3 pennies – 2 heads-up – which had also been hidden by the detritus in my room. It took a bit, but I have my 3 heads-up pennies! Next up: manifesting an uncluttered room.
PS – I have mad crazy love for this blog! I’ve tried so many things, from the easy almond meal & oatmeal facial scrub (fewer breakouts! Exfoliation – it matters. Apparently) to the dry shampoo (which does work on my super curly, frizzy hair, by the way – I just use a teeeeeeny bit dusted on my fingertips at a time and rub it in thoroughly until I can’t see it anymore. No brushing). Thanks for being here to share with us!
I know I’m a little late to the game here but I get behind on my reading sometimes. I visualized a rose pedal. I totally forgot about it when I was driving to pick up my sister from school and someone had dropped a rose in the street and a pedal blew right in front of me. Pretty crazy.
I LOVE the word coincidence. Unfortunately, its meaning has been degraded to something of an accident or connecting two objects or events that are totally unrelated. When, in fact, it means the complete opposite. From dictionary.com: co·in·cide verb (used without object), co·in·cid·ed, co·in·cid·ing. 1. to occupy the same place in space, the same point or period in time, or the same relative position: The centers of concentric circles coincide. Our vacations coincided this year. 2. to correspond exactly, as in nature, character, etc.: His vocation coincides with his avocation. 3. to agree or concur, as in thought or opinion: Their opinions always coincide. My favorite is the concentric circles example. Two circles that fit perfectly together–a manifestation of the perfection that exists all around us in nature.
Ok a bit long but I had to share!
So I was reading this post this morning while at work (ssssh, don’t tell the boss), I work in retail, it was quiet, anyway I really identify with this notion but haven’t done it in a concentrated fashion in a while, so I thought I would join in the fun now.
Seeing as though this post had feathers in it and we sometimes get little feathers that float in under the door at work, which always make me smile, it was the first thing I thought of so I went with it. Think. Smile. Try to forget.
Then I thought about how it would be great if it worked for the visa I am waiting for and was wondering why it hadn’t worked already for it. My partner and I are waiting for a Defacto Visa for him to come through and it will have been a year next week that the paper work has been in for, with no word from the Immigration Department. Apparently it takes 9-12 months to process the paper work and in the meantime he hasn’t been able to work, so we are REALLY looking forward to getting word about it. Just so we know if we can stay in Australia and if he can get a job and we can start building a future! Anyway…so as I was thinking about visualizing receiving the visa in the post and how I would feel, I honestly filled up with so much pit-of-your-stomach excitement it made my eyes water! Very funny feeling and pretty extreme, it was like I’d taped into a different level of energy or something! So I giggled to myself at the oddness of this and honestly tried to let it go.
About 15 mins later I realised I was standing in front of a display feather earrings, which I totally had not even focused on or thought about when I was thinking feathers earlier but it’s right in front of the computer I was on! So I decided that I had to start again cos that was just silly!
Still pondering what to manifest, about an hour and half down the track, I get a call on my mobile from an unknown number, which I assume is the Blood Bank as I’m due to donate and their number never shows. So I pick it up and it’s the Immigration Department saying our case is up for assessment and we are just missing one more bit of paper work and then they can get on to assessing it for us!
Ok, so it’s not quite a granted visa yet, but it’s the first we have heard from them in a year! And we’re close!! So exciting! 🙂
So thank you Crunchy Betty Crew for getting my head in the right zone to help the universe along. Collective positive vibes did the trick!
Red raspberries. They were the first thing I thought of & then I immediately thought, “Well that’s just cheating. You have to go the grocery store tonight. Plus you read food blogs.” Well guess what? Neither at the grocery store nor in any of my food blogs did I see any red raspberries. It was as if they had dropped off the planet. In fact, I thought I had to “settle” when today, a friend posted on Facebook that she was enjoying raspberry ice cream. And I thought “But I wanted RED raspberries! C’mon universe! *sigh*” And then today I saw a recipe for a STRAWBERRY tart that had a picture of … yes, red raspberries littered everywhere. They were just in one picture out of the many and nowhere in the recipe did it ever mention the raspberries. Okay universe, now I want a purple ball! Go! 😛

I tried this…I thought of a hard-sided lunch box, you know, you never see those much anymore. Next day, I was watching Paula Deen and sure enough! They were doing recipes with bacon in them and there was a metal lunch box in the set printed with bacon images…and guess what, I just LOOOOVVVE bacon! I’m trying it again with a blue rabbit. Thank you CB, for a very fun experiment!
Over the past 4 days i’ve done this 4 times. The first time i picked a bell, a little tinkley one, i imagined what it sounded like and imagined holding it in my hand. I was walking home that evening and remembered that i hadn’t seen a bell all day… And was just thinking ‘oh well’ when i heard a bell tinkling away somewhere close to me! It was quite loud, but i couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. Anyway, i wasn’t sure if that counted, so i tried again the nest day, this time choosing a purple flower. Later that day (after a 3 hour plane trip across the pacific ocean) i unlocked the door to my house, walked out onto the balcony and looked at my garden… Only to see all my purple daisies in bloom! After that i picked a blue baby’s pacifier – don’t ask why, just the first thing that came into my head. I almost immediately came across a picture of a baby during an internet search (for something completely different) with a blue dummy in his mouth! Today i tried again, thinking of a yellow bird. I went into town and saw a line of pot plants painted with traditional images of animals and people, some of which were birds of course – and every bird was yellow! I don’t think it’s me communicating with the universe, i think it’s just me being more observant… But it is kind of fun 🙂
Wow. that was wierd. I bowed my head, smiled and then imagined seeing a yellow shirt. Then I let that go. I looked up and saw that my co worker (who I wasn’t looking at the entire day and honestly didn’t notice what he was wearing beforehand.) wearing a yellow t-shirt.
Today I manifested a daisy 🙂 and of course, got a giant goofy smile on my face when I randomly stumbled upon it this afternoon!
Erin R. (again)
Yesterday i got off work a little early so went home for some quiet time before i got the kiddos from day care. I was sitting on the couch watching Family Fued and thought, man my husband needs to leave for a weekend. (you know, you get to that point sometimes when you drive each other nuts) Later that night he told me next weekend he’s going to Portland with his dad! I manifested my husband away!!! LOL! oh the power i have…bwahahaha!
I somehow missed this post the first time around, so I’m super happy you linked to it in your Cool Spray post.
I’ve picked my item…. and will report back!
I just had to say the the pictures of your cat are absolutely precious!!!
I picked “green shirt” – one of the salespeople at work came in about three hours later wearing a green shirt – but it has thin stripes on it – and I imagined a darker green… and I imagined a men’s shirt. Maybe I over thought this. Regardless, I’m chalking it up as a win for my brilliant manifesting powers. Also, the day isn’t over, maybe I’ll still see another green shirt. Does it work that way? Letting it go now…
Hahahaha! I read it. I thought of something, chopsticks. Must be getting near lunch time. And then dismissed it. Not going to participate. Won’t happen. Then I am re-reading an email you had sent on May 24th about the best deodorant recipes. I want to prepare some for our cross country trip next week. I clicked a link you had posted to the Homemade Probiotic Deodorant. There it was. A pair of chopsticks in the photo of the recipe. I froze. Thank you for being so fun!
Ok. So I just read this post last night. I visualized a pink golf ball. I went outside this morning to do my usual garden check, was picking up things the wind had blown out into the yard, and almost stepped right on a pink golf ball! I had no doubt it would work, but I’m kinda like that anyway. Great experiment – it’s fun to read everyone’s manifestations.
I’m not sure if you’d call this ‘manifesting’ and it’s probably a bit of a side-tangent but I get de-ja-vu a lot. The thing is, I dream it before I see it. I only get small snippets but those snippets usally tell me that what I’m looking for is coming, I just have to wait a little longer – anywhere from 2 months to a yearish. As usually happens with dreams though the moment I wake up, aside from maybe feeling slightly reassured I forget all about my dream and carry on with my my life. Untill months later… bam! De-ja-vu hits and I think ‘Holy crap on a cracker I dreamed this! I knew it would happen! Go me!’
A recent example of this happened a few weeks ago sitting at work in the vineyard eating my lunch and looking out over the rows I’d just been working on. A ‘cracker’ moment crept up and waved at me. I realised I’d dreamed this little moment about 6 months ago, after I had lost my old job working as a waitress. At that time I wasn’t having much luck finding a new job but I had a feeling somehow it would all work out.
A forgotten dream and 6 months later I have a job I enjoy, when it doesn’t rain! 🙂
So whether it was positive thinking or manifestng or whatever you call it, I wished it, let it go and eventually it came to me! 🙂
That happens to me. A lot. I actually find it reassuring – that I’m still on the path that I’m meant to be on, because I recognize it.
haha, same thing always happens to me.
It took a few days, but it worked! I read your post the day you posted it and chose a blue balloon to try and manifest. I didn’t think anything of it, and actually forgot about it until I was listening to a song on the tv in the background and heard the lyrics, “my blue balloon”!! Not as expected, but there it was!
it worked. 🙂
I was on my way home and read your blog post.
I thought of a pregnant lady and 3 bus stops later a pregnant lady got into the bus 🙂
Two years ago this August, my husband and I had an enlightening experience that caused us to focus ourselves entirely on understanding the law of attraction and how it works. We’ve been living wholly and completely according to that understanding ever since, which in some ways is easy because we’re so fascinated that it’s pretty much all we talk about, but it’s still really hard to completely change the way you think, when it’s the way you’ve always thought and the way everyone you know thinks. Really getting it, though, is a million times over the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I was declining then, sick and overweight, and I’m thriving now in every way, but that’s not even the best thing that happened. I was never really happy before, not for more than a little while at a time, I just didn’t know how. I’m happy almost every moment of my life now. I didn’t know that was even possible. So yeah… it works. 🙂
I was skeptical of this, but I figured I’d give it a try today…and it worked! I put it out there that I wanted to come across some scrap paper with handwriting on it while I was out and about today (like a discarded napkin note or something). An hour later, I walked out the front door and down the block to my car. Out in the grass in my path was an index card with notes about Zeus on it. Some kid had dropped their flash card for school, I guess 🙂
I recently read ‘the secret’ and it really has changed my life. I approach the idea of manifestation just as you described- skeptically, but with a giant dose of hope, and recently we were in a desperate financial situation where I had nothing to lose but try and hope (and be thankful) and guess what? Everything is turning around for us now. I can’t make myself believe strongly enough to manifest the big bucks, but what has happened is great! But beyond that, we learned to remove the worry and focus on the happy. Life is just better if you give your attention to positive thoughts that can’t help but become actions, yes? On a less serious note I manifest parking spaces all the time, and to make certain it’s effective I get my kids to help me and we always get the park we want!
We play the parking space game, too! We call it Princess Parking when we ask for a good space with minimal walking and get it. It’s fun!
okay, this is crazy! So yesterday I was trying to think of something to focus on, and for some reason, corsets popped in my head. so i figured, why not? And crazily enough, right as i sat down to eat, a woman started doing a cabernet sort of act in the movie my parents were watching. Complete with corset.
Well, I’ve heard of this kind of thing before, but I’ve never actually tried it. It was one of those things where I thought “I totally need to get on that” but then never actually practice it. So I thought I would give it a go this weekend.
For some reason, my creativity was turned off when I read this because after I read about the red hat, all I could think of was clothes. Lol. So I picked a purple shirt. Because I like purple. I smiled and let it go. 🙂 Now here’s the flaw in my weekend…we didn’t actually go any where for me to observe any purple shirts. The only place we went was fishing. BUT. EVERYTHING we watched on netflix over the weekend had someone wearing some kind of purple piece of clothing. I’m not sure if that actually counts, but I think it totally does since we didn’t go any where else for the universe to put it in my line of sight.
I’ll have to try this again, especially when I know we are going to be going out some where. Although, as a general, I’m not very observant (if it weren’t for Hubby, I would have run into so many things by now!)…when you are supposed to let it go and forget about it…I will literally forget. Lol. Maybe I should tell him, and he can keep an eye out!
That totally counts!
Ok i think the trick to this is that your brain is unconsciously looking for the object you thought about, even if you forgot you were looking for it. The feather still would have been there even if you hadn’t done this, but since you were unconsciously seeking one out, it had more meaning to you
Sure, that’s perfectly logical. Or, maybe some of us are so in-tune with our lives and ourselves that we can make nice little things happen to us. 😉
I totally belive in this! I call it the power of positive thinking. Last week i was sitting at work and thought to mylself “i really want to read such and such book”. 2 days later went into my favorite thrift store and there it was on the shelf. Back in January 2007 we had a motivational speaker come in and he talked about this kind of thing. The power of postivie thinking. A lady shared here story of a how her husband always promised her during hunting season if he got something in the first 2 days he was out he’d come home and they’d go to the coast. A friend told her to write this on a piece of paper and then burn it. Send it out to the universe. So she did, and sure enough that hunting season he got his buck early and they went to the coast. So i tried this on a whim. Went home that night and wrote down i wanted to have a baby or be pregnant by the end of the year. Burned it. By October 2007 was pregnant with my 2nd child. We absolutley were not trying so it was a big surprise but something i wanted with my whole heart. I still hold pout hope i get the baby girl i want, i have boys. 🙂
I LOVE this experiment! Completely fun, and a great way to invite the mystery of the world into your life!
I, too, am great at manifesting the little things. For example, I was at a market the other day that also sells unique floral arrangements and plants. The store had air plants in these darling glass globes,and I really wanted one — in fact, I picked up several and admired them before deciding I didn’t really need to spend my money on one right now. I thought about those cute little cacti for most of the day and imagined how awesome one would look in my tiki lounge — then I moved on with my day. The next afternoon, one of my neighbors (she’s also a good friend) called and wanted to drop off “a little something.” It was the EXACT air plant in a glass globe from the same market! I couldn’t help smiling and thanking the universe for the wink!
Now I need to figure out how to manifest the bigger things … I’ve got my mind SET on an orange refrigerator, but it hasn’t manifested … yet. 🙂
I’ve seen so many blog posts about painting appliances… you should paint your refrigerator orange! 😀
And what a fantastic neighbor.
I read this post on Friday morning and chose a feather. Throughout the course of the busy day, I completely forgot about it. That evening, while sitting on the porch with my husband, I looked at a pot of flowers on the railing and noticed a tiny little wispy feather. It was hidden under the flowers but directly in my line of sight from where I was sitting. If I hadn’t stopped to relax and enjoy the evening, I would have missed my feather. Another lesson.
Thanks for this. I’m going to try again today. 🙂
We were watching a Deadmau5 concert, and the LED screens in the background were a bunch of little yellow lights zipping about erratically in deep midnight. I would not have chosen that to watch, but it was pretty awesome, with both bumpin’ beats and lovely music. Exposure to something new, manifestation, and a good night with my beloved and my tiny son. Good weekend!
Cadelle – this is spooky! I read Betty’s post yesterday morning and your wish must have “spoken” to me, ’cause when I stepped outside last evening before bed i saw…yep…FIREFLIES!!!
Ok that’s awesome.
mmmmmhhmmm.. I’m a believer….. A couple of years ago my best friend and I were holed up in a cabin over Christmas in the woods painting and watching movies and one of us said a random, odd word, totally out of context…and within 10 minutes the word was said in the movie (also totally random & nothing to do with the plot). So we started an experiment and had at least 5 synchronicities over the next few days. The most amazing was when we said “grasshopper” and later that day found ourselves in line overhearing someone behind us say how much they loved their trip to Alaska recently, especially the visit to … Grasshopper Glacier. Yep! I forgot to try it this weekend (maybe I should figure out a good memory “feather”), but I’ll give it try with the focused technique you suggest. I like the letting go aspect.
I was at the park with my boyfriend *last* weekend and we were watching some ducks. One appeared not to have a mate, and my bf said something about how he wouldn’t mind a pet duck and could we take him home. I was not in a duck-chasing mood and ultimately the dog would enjoy that too much anyway, so we left the park duckless. When we pulled up to his house there were a pair of ducks ON HIS FRONT LAWN. I almost fell over.
Uh, wow…does “finding” the object count if someone here is looking for the exact same object? Maybe not, but eerie nonetheless 🙂
Happens all the time
A few years ago I was on the Kuranda train high up in the mountains of Far North Queensland in Australia. We had stopped along the way to get off and take in the glorious view. I said to my husband “This is so perfect, the only thing that would make it better is if a (hard to spot) Ulysses butterfly flew by” … you guessed it, as soon as I said it, one flew from behind our line of vision to right in front of us, right on cue – magic!
I’m a big believer in manifesting, often times for small things. Works a treat with parking spaces. I always ask for a parking space in a certain place when I’m heading into town and I think street parking might be a nightmare like on a sunday when it’s free. It always works and I nearly always get a space on the street I want or very close by 🙂
P.S. Love your site
Love it! Same thing always happens to me; friends and family are amazed, but we always just credit the Parking Fairy who happens to fly with us 🙂
Ok a little weird but it worked for me too. I read this and thought about seeing a bear. We had seen a couple but not in a place to stop and look. So last night we took a drive and saw one! And it was a remote road so we got to stop and look until it got scarred off. Of course I am in NE Canada where the chances are higher than say Florida but it happened. I think I am going to try this more….
I’m fairly pro at manifestation. However… it’s feast or famine. Half of my manifestations are straight outta my nightmares (bogus CPS involvement last September), and half are “win the lottery kind of” things (interview on Monday, start work on Thursday two blocks from my house).
Perhaps, I should learn to focus this. Start small. Fireflies. I miss fireflies. *lets go*
Oh these types of things happen to me constantly! I think this weekend, I will see… (keeping with the theme) a red hairband.
*smiles and forgets*
I got on here last night (but my internet was acting up) to say it didn’t work… pretty sure I thought about it too much. I was also going to say that I was sure to see a red hairband the next day, since I knew I wouldn’t be thinking about it anymore. Then, I went to sleep.
This morning I rode into work with my sister, and what should I see? She had her hair loose, but a red hairband around her wrist. I asked her why she chose a red one, and she said, “I just found it this morning in my house; my brown and black ones seem to have disappeared.”
YAY! I knew I could get it to work! What a fun experiment. 😀 Right now, I’m trying to make some food find its way to my starving boyfriend at work…. that isn’t panning out though, haha.
OMGOMGOMG!!!!! It works! So, I got rid of my icky feelings, smiled and first thought, “ball”. Then I remembered that I have a 12 y/o son with balls at home and that would be too easy. So I thought, “red hat” and let it go. So I’m walking around my office…AND A DELIVERY GUY WEARING A RED BASEBALL CAP WALKED IN!!!! I got all smiley and knew it wasn’t a coincidence. I mean, I thought of something completely random to myself (nothing I wanted or needed) and it just FRIGGIN WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR!!! And then on my way out, I saw ANOTHER guy come through my office in a different red cap. It was AMAZING!!! Thanks Betty!
I love this! this kind of thing happens to me all the time! When we were in Ireland starting out on our tour of the Ring of Kerry, our tour guide told us we’d be stopping at a Shepherd’s place for a demo of Shepherding. I turned to my fiance and said, “oh! I wonder if he has any lambs we can cuddle, that would be awesome” who doesn’t love cuddly little lambs?! well, no dice. we watched the demo and left (it was still really cool). We continued on our merry way, stopped for lunch (I had completely forgotten about sheep at this point), lunch was delicious. and we kept going. We turned out at a beautiful lookout kind of thing for pictures, and wouldn’t you know it, there was a guy with 4 lambs and 1 baby goat sitting there. he was letting people cuddle and play with and take pictures with the lambs for a few coins. Not at the place I thought it would be, and quite a while later, I got to cuddle an adorable little fluffy lamb. ah the power of thoughts…
I can’t wait to experiment with this!
Whoa how crazy! I had a very similar experience at the Ring of Kerry. My family is from Ireland and as I was riding in a touring bus though the forest in the Ring of Kerry, I thought how much my Irish family (who hunt) would love to wander through this forest. I was imagining my ancestors hunting in this very area. And not 4 seconds later, there was a huge buck standing amongst the trees! A sign or manifesting…call it what you will, but I too said to the Universe, “Thanks, I hear ya 😉 “
that forest is powerful, I felt it driving through. very cool that you had that happen there.
