I loved Lego when I was a kid.
They were expensive, but I scored a deal with my mom. She would buy them for me if I score good grades.
So, I studied hard achieved my targets most of the time. (It remained a mystery why I was that hard working when I was young.)
But there was this time I did not obtain my goal. It was a genuinely sad moment when I got my grades as I wanted a set of Lego space station for months.
I kept thinking about it.
I still wanted that Lego space station as it would be a perfect fit for my spaceships.
My savings wasn’t enough. So, I thought about working for the year-end holidays, but who would employ a 8 to 9-year-old kid? (Child labor is illegal in Singapore).
After exhausting all my options, I gave up trying to buy the Lego with my own means.
It was like the scene in the movie Bruce Almighty when rain is pouring down on Bruce, and he gave up trying to be God shouting, “I surrender to Your will!”
I still wanted the Lego, but I left it to the Greater Power to fulfill my desire.
My Lego Manifestation
I remembered that day clearly.
It was two days before Christmas when my mom brought me to the toy store.
We walked along the usual route to the Lego section, and my heart was jumping so fast I can feel it in my throat.
When we reached the Lego section, she took the Lego space station, looked me in the eye and said:
“I know you did not do well this time. But I saw the hard work you put in. I’m still going to buy this for you.”
I couldn’t believe my eyes and my mouth was wide open in disbelief. That was the first time my mom did that!
My dream came true.
Be A Good Receiver
We all have the experience of manifesting the things we wanted when we were kids.
That is how the universe work – it is constantly co-creating with you to achieve what you want.
The energy emitted by you (be it positive or negative) attracts like energy in the vast expanse of space and time that comprises our universe.
When we grow up, we forget how to receive positive energy from the universe.
As we work towards our goals, we face failures and discouragements, and we tell ourselves we aren’t getting it.
The universe obliges to your thinking, cut off the positive flow of energy, and you are now stuck in the midst of your challenges.
For manifestation to take place, you must trust the universe to give you what you want.
The key to is to stop struggling. Learn how to be a good receiver and let life be good to you.
