Days 98-101 – Thank you, Universe

It’s been a little while since my last post, but I’m still here. Today I just want to express my gratitude to the Universe; it feels like it is actually responding to my needs at times.

It’s possible that it just seems that way because I’m now focussing on the positives coming into my life rather than the negatives, or it could be because the Universe is actually listening to me and being a good sport.

I’ve been putting out there the things that I want; friendship, fun, love, fulfilling work; and expressing the gratitude I feel for the good things that have already come into my life. Sometimes I’m surprised when the things I’ve expressed a desire for show up so quickly, or so exactly as I asked for. I want to make clear that things aren’t just dropping into my lap; I’m simply noticing more opportunities and following them to see where they end up. Sometimes it’s a dead end, but sometimes good things happen, for which I am always thankful for.

I know this sounds a lot like manifesting, and I suppose in a way it is. And the reason manifesting gets a lot of flack is because people think it is just a case of asking for something and sitting on their hands until they are given it, no hard work required. I’m not doing that. Nor am I being too specific about the things I want, as this creates expectations. Rather, I’m expressing intent and desire, and keeping an eye open for opportunities that cross my path, even seeking them out at times. It doesn’t really matter to me how the good stuff comes into my life, I’m just so thankful that it is now.

Synthetic happiness is also important here; I’m working on being happy with whatever comes into my life. Events that aren’t obviously positive just require a bit of extra examination to find the silver lining.

Thank you, Universe, for all the good in my life, in the past, in the present, and in the future.

  1. after such a long while not reading your blog and returning to see you brighter than ever, you deserve a very big, resounding high five! ^_^

  2. Stay grateful πŸ™‚ And stay aware – noticing signs [“omens”], people, opportunities, etc. This is what I like to call “Waking Up.” I think that so many of us think God, the Universe, whatever you would like to call “it” randomly start to listen to us, but really it’s just that we haven’t been paying much attention. But it sounds like you are doing a great job of making your intentions known and seeking them out. πŸ™‚ Thanks for checking out my blog btw!

    • You’re welcome, thanks for coming over here, too πŸ™‚
      I like your perspective on “waking up”. I have actually started writing down the little coincidences that occur in my life, so that’s probably why I am noticing them more now. I hope to be fully awake sometime soon!

      • That’s a good thing to do! I’m a writer so I write down EVERYTHING. You will start to notice even the smallest things…and they will bring you joy. πŸ™‚ This…is Love. πŸ™‚ This is joy! Being totally in the moment, recognizing the Universe talking back to you. It’s such a wonderful feeling…I absolutely love it. This year has been a huge awakening for me. Keep doing it, you are going to have a great time :).

  3. Hey @Sparrow Look what I saw today on my Fb πŸ™‚ Made me think of your blog post again —

    If you make time daily to list all the things you are grateful for, and you milk the feelings of gratitude, you will feel amazing every day. Your frequency will be high and you will move through your days so happy to be alive, bringing joy wherever you go, positively affecting one person after another. When you live a life like this, everything you want will come before you even ask. From The Secret Daily Teachings by Rhonda Byrne.

  4. I LOVE your efforts to become a positive person! I think much illness could be cured if all people did this. Our minds are SO powerful. I have one incurable illness and one incurable condition, and I decided last week that I am not going to let them control my life. I’ll be thinking of you and re-visiting your blog!

    • Thank you Ellie! Yes, I agree. I think one day we will all get there, either in this life or another πŸ™‚
      Your attitude to your illness is inspiring, and I’m sorry for what you are facing. For so long I was bitter about my circumstances, but then I realised holding on would never make me happy. If I think about it, it can still get me down, so now I only focus on the nice things in my life. xxoo
