The power of collective creation never ceases to amaze me.
My wife and I moved to Ashland, Oregon a few months ago after traveling through Colombia for three months. My wife’s sister and her partner joined us from Seattle after quitting their job and starting a new life themselves. It seems everyone is in major stages of transition these days.
We stayed for a bit over a month in a sublet 20 miles outside of our eventual desired destination. We weren’t worried about finding a place to live because we always seem to have luck manifesting what it is we want. The four of us knew that we had to be specific with what we wanted…good location, spacious house, place for a dog, low rent, big yard, and a garden. Rallying our ideas together we set our intention.
But as the day of our move-out approached, luck seemed to be on vacation. To make matters worse, the owners of the sublet wrote to inform us that they would be coming home a week early. We queried every ad on craigslist. We submitted applications to half a dozen property management businesses. We even resorted to driving up and down the streets looking for houses for rent. But nothing was available and we were beginning to panic. We began to think that we weren’t supposed to live in Ashland after all.
With a week left to go, we realized we would need some help and so we sounded out the alarm. All of us told everyone we knew about our desire to find a place to live. Family, friends, even strangers. We even told them the specifics. We didn’t ask them to do anything in particular. We simply asked them that they hold an energetic intention for us.
What happened next was astounding. My wife and her sister went to their regular yoga class when they overheard a woman talking to a new friend of theirs about her problem: she couldn’t find anyone to rent her place – she would have to resort to handing it over to a property management – something we wanted to avoid if at all possible. Everyone was in the right place at the right time, and just believe me when I say that the synchronicities surrounding the event were uncanny.
Let’s just say we got what we asked for, only a bit to the extreme. Within ONE day, we were the new renters of a four bedroom house, with a large yard, garden, no pet deposit, FURNISHED!, half a block from the co-op, and neighbors with not one but TWO old friends from high school. Really??
This experience has taught me a lot. Yes the power of intention is essential to manifesting what it is you want. And yes, it is important to be specific with your desires. But never underestimate the collective power of energetic support. In a world that is so bogged-down with so many large problems, we must remind ourselves that these are problems we are facing together. We must learn to rely on each other and trust that whatever we put out, we get back. The more we support others, the more we ultimately support ourselves.
We really do have the potential to create heaven on earth. We face a great many challenges but through those challenges we experience the rewards of our own evolution – let no one convince you otherwise. The frequency that the media is broadcasting is not the REAL reality. The real reality is something we can’t even comprehend. We are powerful beings each capable of co-creating a planet that reflects back to us our own potential. Let us end the fear game. Trust that the people around you also want the same thing…to be happy! Let us create this happiness together.
