When I was child I couldn’t wait to grow up and do all of the things adults could do. Adults could do anything they wanted, I thought. So, why did so many of them seem so unhappy? I made a promise to myself that once I became an adult I would do all of the things that I wanted, and be happy. When I turned 17, I kept my promise to myself. I practically dropped the “obligatory” mindset we are conditioned to feel is necessary to becoming a responsible adult, and shifted to focusing more on my feelings. If it didn’t feel good to my soul, I looked for something that did. By 19, I had moved out and into my first apartment. My roommate and I loved to cook and entertain, so we were known to have hosted social gatherings almost every weekend. The weekends that we weren’t hosting, we traveled. Life was colorful and exciting back then.
By the time I had reached 21, I was close to being a pro at manifesting what I wanted in my life. Things that I thought about literally just showed up. Jobs came to me easy, and before I knew it my confidence in my ability to create anything I wanted became a natural state of existence for me.
One morning while driving to work, I had heard an announcement on the radio that Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers were going to be performing that evening in a neighboring city. I was a huge fan of Ziggy’s music at the time and there was no way I wasn’t going to be there. I calculated the drive. I got off from work at 4:30 pm and the show started at 7 pm. It would have taken me at least two hours to get to Cincinnati so I was cutting it really close. I was determined, however, to see the performance. Never mind the fact that I didn’t have a ticket nor did I know where exactly the venue was located. None of that mattered. My excitement and the certainty I had in receiving my desire had already begun to pave a miraculous way to experiencing the time of my life.
At 4:30, I clocked out then headed down the highway. It was a warm, sunny summer day, an excellent day for a road trip. By the time I had reached Cincinnati I knew the name of the venue that had been announced again on the radio. Immediately I began asking around for the directions (this was before cell phones and GPS). By 6:45 pm, I had reached my destination but I had no ticket. Oh well! My inner-being didn’t care, and neither did I. I knew I was going to see Ziggy and the Melody Makers sing that evening and I was going to have an awesome time! As I approached the entrance of the venue, two cops stood outside. “Excuse me, miss”, one of the cops said to me. “We confiscated this ticket earlier and we were just wondering if you’d like to have it?”
There’s nothing you can NOT create when you are aware of your ability to create. After all, you couldn’t wait to come here to do just that! You’ve only forgotten, that’s all.
