Many of us at one point in our life have heard of the theory behind The Law of Attraction and my favorite, whatever energy you put out into the universe is exactly what will return to you. I’ve been practicing these concepts for many years, aligning myself with source energy and watching the beauty that unfolds just by being present.
A few weeks ago, I received a very powerful urge to write and up to this point my writing had been nonexistent with many of my “works in progress” laying on my shelf gathering dust. This particular morning I woke up with this very unexpected excitement to put pen to paper. I hopped out of bed, made myself a cup of coffee, opened up my windows, turned on my music and started listening to one of my favorite playlists.
Within minutes the words began to flow from my fingers tips as I soaked in the characters, embraced their emotions and allowed the story to unfold. I was riding high in my proverbial vortex, so high that I didn’t know while my words were being laid out in a form of a story, that the universe was answering the vibrations that I was currently throwing out.
Fourteen chapters in and many hours later, I felt I had made quite a good dent in my writing and decided to call it a night. The next morning I woke up to a text from an old acquaintance, and by old I mean I was in my late twenties, Simon Cowell was making young people cry and I was still trying to fight the darkness within me. The text stated that he was going to be passing through town. Without thought, I suggested we meet for lunch. No harm in lunch right?
What occurred to me days later was that everything that I had written days earlier was playing out right before my eyes, just as I had written it. But instead of feeling like a manifesting genius, I felt off kilter. See, I can manifest donuts like nobody’s business. #TrueStory. This was another example of how my manifesting skills are severely off.
If I’m being honest I was disappointed because the person who had reached out to me wasn’t the person who I would have loved to have heard from, who had been the muse behind the words, the emotion behind the song, the man who once upon a time created such soul griping stories with me.

I had a choice, I could either be disheartened or I could be thrilled that I was able to connect with Source energy in such a profound way. I was once told that what we ask or pray for is not exactly what we will be given, it will be what God/Source/Universe feels that we need in order for growth or in some cases it could be in a form of a much needed lesson. In this case it was for growth and clarification.
And as for that story that I was so intent to write, it’s being written but with less gusto. I’m just going to sit back and see what surprises the universe has in store. For now, all is quiet.
I have no complaints.
