Answer The Door

 

I was speaking with a coaching client today about a concept that has been with me and many others I know, for quite awhile. Over the years, I have become adept at asking for what I want. Having read all kinds of books about manifestation (I refer to it as manna-festation-like manna from Heaven), watched The Secret numerous times, written and taught on the subject, I am able to make requests to the Universe without stuttering. I am assertive when it comes to negotiating and have seen the end result more often as I had imagined it…..and yet, when the experience, people, money, opportunities, what have you, actually show up, I am surprised. Why should I be?  Why should any of us be? Imagine if you invited a friend or family member to your home and they said they would be there. At the appointed time, they knock or ring the doorbell. Would you send them away, keep them waiting a long time, or open the door and welcome them in? Same thing with inviting what we desire into our lives. We send out a request and then far too often, bar the door or refuse to answer it.

I encouraged her, and myself simultaneoulsy, to visualize all of our wishes, big and small, showing up on our doorstep, patiently waiting for us to let them in. The image that comes to mind at the moment is from The Wizard of Oz in which the guard at the door tells Dorothy and crew to come back later. At first they are discouraged and prepared to turn away and then they stand their ground and pretty soon, the guard is sniffling and snotting into his moustache and they are granted entrance.

What is the door through which you would welcome your deepest heart longings? Visualize how it would appear. Imagine your dreams for which you have issued invitations, lining up to be granted admittance to your abode. Greet them as welcome guests and let them stay awhile.

Resurrection
      Last night I watched one of my favorite movies that debuted in 1980. Resurrection starred Ellen Burstyn, Sam Shepard, Eva Le Galliene, Richard Farnsworth and Roberts Blossom. It is the story of Edna Mae McCauley, who in the first 10 minutes or so of the film, has a

Don't Give Up
As I am in the middle of the fifth decade of my life, the world has become a patchwork quilt of experiences. In the last 55 years, I have splashed in puddles of joy and gasped for air while feeling like I was drowning in sorrow. I have been clutched by fear and basked in light. Through it all, I hav

Heaven On Earth
    "Imagine, will you....Heaven On Earth For Real." These are the words that are on my friend Tambra Harck's Facebook page. I think about it a lot since I believe that we create our own vision/version in our vivid imaginations. One of my favorite songs on the topic, sung by Ma

With An Open Hand
  When you consider all of the things that you desire; from relationships to abundance, from faith to freedom, from possessions to passion, how do you hold them?  What I mean by that is this:  do you hold them with a closed fist; grasping, clinging as if for dear life or can you let go a b

The Art of Surrender
On Saturday, I began my day in retrospective musing. Listening to Ellis Paul singing Dragonfly  on Sleepy Hollow  to greet the sun. Was reading earlier entries down my time line on Facebook and marveled at how far I have come since everything changed with the 'cardiac event' on June 12th. It was o
