This or Something Better

Are you wanting to manifest something in your life? Is it tangible? A thing or things? Is it a new home? A new car? More money? If it’s any of these things, write it down!!! But don’t be so specific that it limits the Universe in giving you what you want. And always add this or something better.

I’m a big fan of the Universe. It’s a vast field of potentiality. So today, I want to share with you one of my many experiences with how it bestows blessings upon all of us.

Years ago, living in southern CA, we wanted to move back to AZ, so I wrote down the kind of house I wanted to live in there. It had to have lots of light, a sweeping view of the Catalina mountains, in a nice neighborhood with fantastic neighbors, and most of all, we had to feel good living there. The kicker was that at the end of my description I added this or something better. (The Universe being the benevolent benefactor that it is, I trust in it completely to know better than me and my mere mortal thinking).

We made the move back to AZ and ended up renting a house until we could find just the right one to purchase. We found one. It didn’t match what I had written down, so I thought we’d have to settle for it. But most of all, it didn’t have the feeling I wanted. Then (drum roll, please) just about a week later, one came up that matched my description perfectly. When I walked in the front door, it took my breath away. There was the wow! sweeping view, a house full of light, and many other ‘something betters’ that I had not even written down.

The seller was asking much more than what we wanted to spend, but I knew without a doubt that if we were meant to have it, a way would show up. The ways and means materialized in such a synchronized fashion that it was truly miraculous. I’m smiling right now from ear to ear as I think about it.

But that’s not the end of this story. I also wrote down that I wanted to be a Cadillac driver (for some reason I’ve always liked them).

My Mom called one day and said, “My neighbor is selling her Cadillac. Come look at it.” I explained to Mom that we already had two cars and didn’t need a third. Resistance? She convinced us that we should just come up there and look at it. We did. We ended up buying it. So I became a Cadillac driver. That was fun!

But again, the story doesn’t end there. The lady we bought it from was a phenomenal woman, one whom we became dear friends with. Love her! She was selling this car because she was buying another Cadillac from a friend of hers. So we asked her when it came time for her to sell that one, to please give us first chance at it. She did. So …. we had not one, but two Cadillacs.

Lesson? Never, ever limit the Universe and its power to provide This or something better.

If I can do this, so can you. Write it down! And then trust the Universe to show up.

Here’s the story in a picture. The house and both Cadillacs. Grace on the left. Lady Pearl on the right. (Yes, I named them. Haha!)

Okay, I have to go now. Lots to write down 🙂
