I just got back from my water aerobics class. This isn’t really big news, I know. But it is for me, because the pool was supposed to close for renovations last Friday.
Almost three weeks ago, I sat down with a couple of friends to set some goals for ourselves for the rest of the month. I introduced them to Raymond Aaron’s Monthly Mentor goal setting program. I don’t make any money from endorsing this program; I just believe it is an excellent system for making progress toward your goals.
I haven’t used it myself in quite some time. So it was good for me to introduce it to my friends, and have others to support and be supported by in moving forward. One of the goals I set for myself was to start going to water aerobics again. I set myself a goal of attending a minimum of two classes, a target of three classes, and my outrageous goal for myself was attending five classes. I thought I had three weeks to acheive this.
Then I found out that the pool was closing June 25th for maintenance and renovations. So I had only two weeks to acheive my goal! I made the comment several times that I was disappointed that just as I was getting back into going to the classes, the pool was closing and I would not be able to keep up the momentum I was creating for myself. I pushed myself in my schedule, and I managed to get to five classes in two weeks!
At class last Friday morning, it was announced that the pool would be open for four more weeks. The architect needed more time. The fitness schedule would be quite limited, but the deep water class I attend is on at the time I prefer to attend, and on the three days of the week I attend.
However indirectly, I told the Universe that I wanted to continue with water aerobics, and the Universe provided the opportunity for me!
This isn’t the only experience I have had of manifesting I have had recently, but it is one of the most obvious. What I observe about myself in this situation, is that I did not directly ask the Universe to keep the pool open. I took action, going to the deep water class at every opportunity in my schedule. I enjoyed the feeling of working out, and I expressed disappointment at the thought of not continuing.
I find I am often challenged in the manifestation process by not taking action, or by getting stuck in the feeling of what I don’t want. Or I manifest unconsciously. I don’t always consciously choose what I want to create in my life. Between The Peaceful Woman’s Inspired Living Coaching series, and getting back into utilizing the MAINLY goal setting system, I am working on becoming more conscious of being a co-creator of my life. I am creating my reality in alignment with my intentions and desires. I AM a powerful manifestor, and I am so grateful!
