Manifest Destinies by R. Gopakumar

Most of us, one time or another, have wondered why we could not manifest what we wanted in our lives—even when we did everything “right.” I know I sure have!

But, for most of my life, I never asked the question our title presents today. How could my desires already exist if I saw no evidence of them in my life? That’s just not possible—or so I thought. Maybe you’ve had the same experience.

You’ve probably heard or read the stories of native tribes not being able to see large European sailing ships as the crews ventured into parts of the world unknown to Europe till then. Supposedly, the natives could not see the ships because they had no concept of what a sailing ship was.

Those stories are controversial—some believe them, others do not. But they do make a great point.

My spirit guides (and other teachers) have said manifesting is a simple three-step process. We ask for what we want. The universe answers our asking instantly. Then we wait for the manifestation.

The hardest part for most of us is the waiting. That’s only because we fail to understand this:

From the moment the universe answers our request, the manifestation exists.

It literally takes no time at all—in the world of spirit there is no time, not in the linear sense.

What we ask for manifests instantly. But if we’re not aware of that, or don’t believe it, then it often takes a long time for us to see what we’ve created. And sometimes we never see it.

There’s an old cliché—“I’ll believe it when I see it.” I like the reverse of that—“When I believe it I’ll see it.”

We often miss seeing what we do not believe exists, even though it may be literally right there before our eyes.

Here’s an interesting video clearly demonstrating how our lack of belief (or focus) can hide what is literally right there before our eyes.

If you’ve already seen the video, it may not work a second time for you. I could not believe my experience when I first saw the video a few days ago. But it did not give me the same experience the second time. I think you’ll understand after you’ve seen it. (Assuming you haven’t seen it before.)

Have you had any experiences where you literally did not see something right there physically in front of you? How many experiences have you missed because of that “blindness?” Please share your thoughts and comments with us below.
