Our card for today, Thursday, May 10th, is taken from the Daily Guidance from Your Angels Oracle Cards – Listen – “Quiet your mind, Beloved One, and listen to our gentle reassurance that everything has been taken care of. Stay in a quiet and receptive state, without worrying about the exact nature of your desire’s manifestation. A quiet mind and body hears us quickly and clearly. This is our request to you: Listen.”
Today we have another card on manifestation. All we can take from all the readings on manifestation lately is that it is indeed a very important topic and something we all need to learn how to do. So today’s card is asking us to listen, to be quiet and receptive and ready to hear the angels’ messages as they come to us. We can’t be open and receptive if we are worried about anything because then our minds are full of chatter. We are told not to worry about the exact nature of our desire’s manifestation. What this means based on the Law of Attraction, is not to place limits on God’s or the Universe’s way of delivering what it is we desire.
Now yesterday we talked about the man who wanted a new car and he envisioned it right down to the color. It’s okay to do that but not be limited to it. So let’s say he wanted a blue car and it was a red one that showed up, but he didn’t believe it was his manifestation because it wasn’t the right color so he turned it away. This reminds me of a story where a man was trapped in his house in a flood and he began praying for God to rescue him. He envisioned God reaching down from Heaven and saving him. He had several people offer to take him to safety but he turned them all down because he was waiting for God to save him. In the end the man drowned and when he got to Heaven he asked God “Why didn’t you save me?” and God answered saying “I sent you a truck, a boat, and a helicopter and you refused them all. What else could I do for you?”
So keeping that story in mind, when God answers our prayer and sends us what we desire, it may be slightly different than what we hoped for. That doesn’t mean that our prayer wasn’t answered or that our manifestation didn’t happen, it just means it’s in a form that God knows is better for us than what we originally asked for. This is especially true when we ask God to bring our soul mate to us. We may have a particular person in mind when we ask for this because we believe that it is this person and can only be this person. Then someone shows up with all the qualities we desire, but it’s not the person we had in mind so we send him/her away. Maybe God then sends someone else, but again it’s not who we wanted it to be so we send that person away too. Then when the one we believe should be ours doesn’t show up we turn to God and ask why He didn’t answer our prayers. He did answer our prayers, but we were not open and receptive to recognizing it!
So do you understand what we are being told here? We are told to pray for our desire to manifest into our reality, but to be open to whatever way it shows up for us. It may not be a car the exact model or color we hoped for, but it’s a new car. He or she may have brown hair instead of the blond hair we hoped for but that doesn’t mean it’s not our soul mate. Our vision of things is small compared to the bigger picture that God sees, and so we need to trust Him when He sends us an answer to our prayer that may not be exactly what we wanted. God does know better than we do what is best for us. So the question is when we pray for something, can we be open and receptive to receiving it even if it doesn’t quite meet our expectations of what it should be or what it should like? If we are going to trust God to answer our prayers, we have to trust Him to know what is best for us when He answers.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
