Do you want to be happy, or do you want to be right? That’s the question I ask my clients, and that’s the question I ask myself. Lately, more and more.
I keep seeing people struggling because they prefer to be right. They like “only xyz can make me happy,” and they refuse to find satisfaction anywhere else. They settle for what they already know.
And I’m sorry, but if you had a crappy life so far and you decide to transform it for the better… you’ll going to manifest a lot of things that will be new to you.
You can manifest what you want
Yes, I know I can have exactly what I want. Yes, you can have exactly what you want. But how I understand “exactly” that changes. That has already changed.
But before I tell you my story, let me ask you one more question:
Have you ever got what you wanted and weren’t happy?
It seemed like you have everything. But that just somehow wasn’t it.
It seems like it’s a common thing, that’s why you heard so many times “be careful what you wish for”. Movies like “Butterfly effect” are based on that.
You see, I used to think that “exactly what I want” means “anything I plan”, like tomorrow at 2 pm a redhead guy in a red jacket will buy me a coffee. Latte macchiato. Hazelnut flavored.
But apparently, manifesting doesn’t really work this way.
If something like that happens, I mean something we imagined with all the details – it’s incredible. That’s like magic, especially when you are at the beginning of your manifesting journey.
You may not know, but when I first discovered Neville Goddard and the law of assumption, I was all about manifesting specific people. That was like “wow!” oh, I felt so powerful… for w while. Now, I’m not a fan of this approach anymore, and I advise you not to manifest any SP.
Right now, the way I understand “exactly what I want” is a mystery. It’s something I don’t know yet, so I can’t plan it. Because it’s so good, it’s something I’ve never had before.
Exactly what I wan’t isn’t always exactly what I want
Last year I manifested spending my birthday in Paris, and that was a massive win as all the circumstances were against me. This year I wanted to do the same. A couple of months ago, I booked Hôtel Les Dames du Panthéon. Covid? What covid? I was imagining my amazing birthday.
And that birthday is in a month, and I just canceled my reservation. Yes, I could still go to Paris, but I won’t be able to enjoy the city entirely. So yes, I want my birthday in Paris. But that wouldn’t be exactly what I want. Spending birthday is the covid restricted city isn’t attractive.
So what do I want? What is exactly what I want? I want a proper celebration of my life. I want unique and extraordinary. There’s still a month, and it seems like I won’t be then in Paris. I won’t be in Berlin. Where will I be, and how am I going to have a fantastic time? I don’t know, but I have that thrilling feeling around it. And that is exactly what I want.
