From The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have.
Just trust yourself,To be willing to envision what we need is powerful and real, and just as crucial is the confidence of spirit to know that it will work...
then you will know how to live.
One of the component parts of making (or casting, if you'd rather) spells is the visualisation of the intent, the outcome, the envisioning of what is needed. It is communicating that need into the Universe in a form that can be understood.
One has to feel and see, and hear and clearly project the thought of those needs into the etheric template so that it can be received by the universe. That's the theory anyhow.
As with any working, as discussed before, it takes a collected wholeness to be able to do this and feel this and achieve success. There's also a matter or timing. We who do not see the 'big picture' may have those wants and needs and desires at precisely the wrong time, so of course then we do not appear to be having o ur wishes granted (or our spells remain unsuccessful).
Then of course there is the necessity to do for yourself what you can toward achieving those goals. If you don't do anything, what you want is not going to just fall in your lap.
Truth is though when you /do/ (as I have been doing) all those things, take all those steps, and what you want still doesn't materialse, or come any closer, or move within reach, then it gets to be very frustrating, and that's when it's important not to give up I guess, not to allow the frustration to turn to be disheartening.
I'm feeling a bit like that myself today. Don't know why really. I wanted to get some work done. Well, I have a constant envisioning of the work finished in all it's clarity, I allowed for the other things that I needed to do (apart from the dishes - as I'm writing this, they remain waiting in the sink), and I used the other computer today for hours, the one that doesn't connect to the internet wirelessly, so that I could work without distraction. You'd think that I'd have been all right, wouldn't you... got lots of work done?
Well, I got one thing out of the way, and into the hands of my beta, but I still didn't get to the rewrite of Use'ara first chapter. Since I realised I need to write Hunt into the scene on the bridge I haven't one anything to make it happen (or should that be 'make it so'?)
So I'm guessing tomorrow is another day, and I'll turn on the big laptop, and work away at it before I do anything else. No store runs tomorrow (I did it today), no nothing else. just working.
I see it. I feel it. I will do it.
