THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE
Come, sit with me, close your eyes, hold my hand, let's go far away from this place to the place in which you came from.
"Don't Give Up On What You Asked God For"
It's easy to give up whenever we don't see things happening fast enough, well what we consider to be fast enough. It takes courage and strong faith to keep believing when it doesn't look like it's happening for you. Everything stands the test of Divine process, so things happen for us in Divine time.
Have you ever worked on a manifestation and kept working on it, but subsequently gave up, and moved on to something else because it seemed that it wasn't working? I have. You don't know what could have happened because you gave up. You could have been at the very edge of the breakthrough, and then you quit thinking that maybe it wasn't for you. Don't give up on what you asked God for.
What you asked for is sitting in your heart, it lives in the back of your mind all day, everyday, and you are conscious of it. You have heard that what God has for you, it is for you. You have been putting in the work and energy for what you're striving for, so it shouldn't be so easy to give up on it, if that's what you really want. Maybe the Universe is trying to see if you really want it. When you put out your intentions into the Universe, it echoes, and it returns to you. It may not return today, tomorrow, or in a month, but if you hold space for it in your heart, it will come back to you.
I don't care what anyone says, it takes everything that you have inside of you to hold faith for the things that seem impossible because we look at our current situations. We have to use our imaginations and intense feelings to bring about our manifestations. God heard you when you asked, God heard you when you prayed, God heard you when you cried, God heard you when you talked about it, and God knows your heart. Trust your heart, trust your soul, and trust that everything is working out for your benefit.
All things come to us in Divine order, so we have be sure to be in Divine line to receive what we are requesting. We have to keep an open heart that is ready to receive. Keep your energy open to receive. When someone offers you something, take it and say thank you. This is preparing you to be open and ready to receive larger things. Keep your focus on the main objective. Let it saturate your entire being, so that it will gravitate towards you. This Universe is always working for you, never against you. It's leading you on a path closer to God. God will not give you anything that will take you out of line with the Divine, and your Divine nature.
I have asked for things and kept the faith of them for months, holding it in my mind, and then the feeling of it would die off, when I saw my attempts to acquire such things was seeming to fail. They weren't failing, they were still testing me. Was I ready for what I was asking for if I was willing to give up on it so abruptly? Did I have some self-pity stirring around inside of me because I wanted it to just happen for me, and it wasn't happening as fast as I wanted it to? The answer is yes.
We quit at the finish line. We quit before right before graduation. Right before it happens, we give up on it. After we have prayed about it, and put all of our focus on it, we give in. When it seems like we can't take anymore of our adverse situation, we are at the end of the ledge, that's when the breakthrough happens. It seems the hardest before it happens. God has our attention. We stop focusing on the things that don't matter, gossip, what other people are doing, what she said, what he said, what they did to us, and what they were trying to say slickly. We stop caring about those things because life has become far too serious for us, and we tired.
Do you know how difficult it is to keep believing when everything that you want appears to be going backwards? I bet you do. I do. You never know how weak or how strong your faith is, until its put to the test. I have live through many testimonies and I am sure that I have many more to go. When I got the money that I needed on the day that I needed it, when the call that I was waiting for came at the right time, when my life was saved while I was feeling like I was about to break down. I am grateful for what God has done for me and what God continues to do for me.
In trying times, you learn who your Source of supply is. God is my Source of supply, not man. I acknowledge that there is a higher power working for me. There are situations that I have faced where I didn't know what I was going to do, and God stepped in right on time. Every time I have worried and become discouraged, God has shown up, and showed me every time. Sometimes God is just saying, "wait." Sometimes God is saying no, to protect you from something bad happening to you. You could go and get involved in a terrible accident. You can go be faced with some kind of danger. There may be a different path for you. I don't know, but I do know that everything, every experience is to break your false ego down, and guide you back to your true nature. Your God nature. You represent God.
I have been in a place where I was omitting the Spirit. I wasn't doing this knowingly. I was just thinking that I was in control. I thought that I could fix it. I thought I could change it. I thank God for correction. Those things that happen and you can see that their beyond your control, you begin to innerstand that God is in control.
As you keep your heart pure, pure experiences happen for you. Your life begins to change. When your heart is filled with joy, you are ready to experience joy. You have set your vibrational tone to receive joyful experiences and they will come. When you are vibrating at a level of gratitude and abundance, all the things that you want will make their way to you. When you are opening your heart, letting go of all offenses, removing stains from your heart towards people who hurt you, you have opened massive space for all of your blessing to come through. Abundance has always been there, it is waiting on us.
I got tired of worrying and fearing, manifesting the outcomes that I didn't want because I was putting so much unpleasant energy into them. I started leaning on faith, and walking inside of God. I started using my car travels to pray, chant, and talk to God. If I am waiting on someone, I'll do a short meditation, practice visualizations, or I will have a conversation with God in the mirror. I utilize my time for inner work. I take my time to talk to God all day long.
"If you don't invite God as a summer guest, he will not come in the winter of your life" said Lahiri Mahasaya.
This quote lives in my heart because it says everything that touches me everywhere. If we don't invite God in when everything seems to be going well in our lives, don't expect God to come when times get hard. We can't use God. In the winter it gets cold, vegetables and fruit are not the same, things change with the seasons, this is a time to be smart and spiritually store up for the winter.
Don't give up on your manifestations. Don't give up on what you asked God for. Be in a place to receive what you are asking for. And when you receive it, give credit to where it came from.
I love music like most people, and there is a song where Drake the rapper says on the hook, "Came up that's all me, no help that's all me, all me for real," I can't even sing that along with him, because my help cometh from the Lord. If I had to just rely on me and me alone, I would crumble like a soft cookie. We are the medium. As above, so below, and that's a topic that I plan to write to you about. But there is a high, medium, and low to every thing on this plane. We are the medium.
Remember your manifestations, keep the excitement of them fulfilled tucked away in your heart. Keep your energy flowing in all loving directions. Even when people throw shade at you, ignore them. Remember that it's just a distraction to take you away from the goodness that God has for you. You have to be in a place of vibration to receive it. You can't say, "I am broke," and expect for money to be abundant in your life. Life is going to give you what you believe, what you feel. You can't say that you are sick, and expect to be healthy at the same time. We can't say, "it's always something going on," as in reference to something unfortunate, and expect to live in a happy flowing state. Our words cast spells, that's why they are called spellings.
We must work on what we say. We must choose our words wisely. They are your words and they have power beyond your imagination.
