“This, or something better, now manifests for me in totally satisfying and harmonious ways, for the highest good of all concerned.” Shakti Gawain, Creative Visualization
This affirmation is what Shakti recommends we apply to all of our manifestations. If something we have been attempting to manifest, and it just won’t come through, then maybe there IS “something better.” I have sometimes thought long and hard about a desired outcome, over months, even more than a year, and not have it manifest. Only later did I realize that I was on the wrong foot. There was something better that I didn’t want to see. So, Shakti is right; the universe may have something better to show to us.
We don’t know what our contract was before birth. And I believe we all had one. This contract may not have chosen for manifestation something that has been very dear to our heart. If so, we are spinning wheels to try to manifest. Instead, we need to ask, and then when something better is shown to us, really believe that this something better IS better.
Our way will smooth. And down the road a bit, we will see why the “something better” really IS better. God knew better than our finite minds.
