Believing First or Seeing First
Are you a seeing-is-believing person or a believing it to see it person? There probably are equal amounts of both kinds of people in the world. I personally believe it first and that helps me to manifest it into physical form. I believe it, I start to feel the feelings I will have once it is manifested, and keep visualizing the desired outcome. I'm sure that many of you know this from The Law of Attraction. I do somehow feel that it's an act of faith to hold space for what your desired outcome is before you have proof of it.
There is an amazing quote from Thoreau that states, “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind,
and will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and be interpreted in his favor, in a more literal sense, and he will live with a license of a higher order of beings.” What this means is, if you can keep holding the vision of the life you want and keep seeing, feeling, and believing, there are universal laws that keep order in the whole universe. These are higher laws like cause and effect, etc. These laws seem to rearrange the molecules themselves of what you're trying to create. Time doesn't exist in that realm, and all the resources you need will magnetically be drawn to you as if by magical means. This my friends are what is known as a miracle.
So for any doubting Thomas, try this and watch what happens in your life. Yes, it does take practice like anything else but you will know what direction you are going in by the changes starting to happen around you. Remember, practice makes perfect!
