I am a firm believer that – not only in life but in business – whatever you seek, you create.
This is all about energy, and it’s a little tricky to wrap our minds around. Stated simply, when we place our energy and intentions upon a specific goal, the universe immediately springs into the process of making that goal come to fruition.
Now I know what you’re saying. You’re saying, “But Toni! I’ve poured YEARS of my life into trying to make XYZ happen, but I’m getting nowhere!”
That’s a very human concern. Don’t be hard on yourself. And do not JUDGE yourself!
If you feel like you’re pushing a boulder up a hill to reach your goal, it’s probably because your motives are out of alignment with your higher purpose. In other words, if you want to be a rock star because you want to hear the fans screaming your name, you’re very likely to struggle on the path. On the other hand, if you want to be a rock star because you’ve got this incredible music just bursting out of you from the core of your soul, you’re more likely to have the universe jump aboard as your partner in succeeding.
So check yourself. Check your motives and intentions. When you’re flowing toward the greater good, in accordance with your own highest values, you’ll find that the universe is all too eager to collaborate with you in your pursuits.
Here are two quick examples for you…
In May of 2016, I got hired as the Real Estate broker for a professional football player. His goal was to get into a property in his new place of employment, before the season began. My goal was to help him do it. I was a model of determination. I wrote down that I was going to place him in his home before the start of that football season – and each and every day, I read my goal aloud, over and over.
This was my way of setting a groove into the very fabric of the universe. And wouldn’t you just know it? I rode that groove all the way to achieving my goal! The new season was to begin in September 2016, and we closed on his new house during the first week in August!
Here’s another fun one for you, but believe me, I have hundreds…
While researching my own first home, I started studying up on dogs. I was interested in finding a new companion to join me on this adventure. Anyway, while in the midst of the research process, I sneaked away to Santa Barbara, to attend a dog show, where I’d be able to continue studying certain breeds. One breed in particular, the Rhodesian Ridgeback, caught my interest. I craved a dog that would offer the comforts of security and protection, and the Rhodesian Ridgeback was known for its lion-hunting skills and tendencies. Next thing I knew, my assistant called me. She said she had found THE breeder of Rhodesian Ridgebacks, in the State of California. In order to meet with this person, I’d simply have to go…to Santa Barbara!
Where I already was!
My assistant had no clue I’d sneaked away, let alone that I’d gone to a dog show. But I’d unconsciously placed myself in close proximity to this breeder, and thus closer to my goal.
I had also decided on the specific details of the exact pet that I wanted, and when the litter was delivered, I got exactly what I envisioned — right down to the thickness of his body and the darkness of his mask! It was as if I had birthed Buju from my very own being, all by way of deep intention.
Because Whatever We Seek, We Create!
What you focus on expands. If you focus on fear and negativity, your life will be frightening and negative. If you focus on being a loving soul who brings about the best possible reality for those around you, what do you think will end up taking place?
Trust me on this one. And please share with me your own adventures in proving it so.
