From the Merriam-Webster dictionary: Manifest Destiny – a future event accepted as inevitable; in the mid 19th century expansion to the Pacific was regarded as the manifest destiny of the United States; broadly an ostensibly benevolent or necessary policy of imperialistic expansion; a future event that is sure to happen; a destiny that can be clearly seen and that cannot be changed.
You have the power, we all have the power, to shape our future into some inevitable outcome for the good. You have the ways and means to walk down a desired path that will unfold into future events that will be sure to happen. Prayer, positive thinking, meditation – all can lead to a destiny that one chooses, one that is clearly seen and that cannot be changed.
It all begins with a recurring thought pattern within which you have a desired outcome and focus on that outcome. You have a desire, you “meditate on it” and do so over and over until it is engrained into your mindset. You have a passion for it and a knowing that it will occur. And then you release the attachment to this desired outcome and let God/Higher Power/Universe take over.
Your daily mantra – whether consistent or changing along your path over time – will play a huge part in your manifestation of your destiny. The desired outcome that you wish to have unfolded for you by that Higher Power can be started and finely tuned through use of one or many mantras that you use in your prayer/meditation/quiet reflective thought.
Consider the power and impact of the following. I have used all of these over the last several years and I am sure that many of your thoughts specific to your desires and wishes for your life and the lives of those that you love may have included some or all of these throughout the years.
- I release all negative thoughts
- Open me up to the infinite and abundant health of the universe
- Show me the way
- Guide me
- All is good, all is well
- Today is the start of my better life
- Make me open to prosperity and happiness
- Surround me with the warmth and comfort of your love and protection
- I place my trust in you, I leave it in your hands
- Take my hand and show me the way to where you wish that I go, to what you wish that I become
- Plant the seed in me, nurture me
Daily, recurring positive thoughts and prayers are so powerful and yet so misunderstood by the vast majority of humans who share the stage with you on your journey. Do some research on the power of words and music specific to healing and therapy. Take a moment each day to reflect on your life, on what it is that you want, on how you can be a better person and make a true difference in the lives of others. Take a positive approach to each and every day with a goal of some small step in the direction through which you will need to go in order to get to your desired outcome.
Look for signs in your life that the universe is listening to you. Think of the truth that lies within these timeless statements that most of us take for granted. *The meek shall inherit the earth. *Good things come to those that wait. *Ask and you shall receive.
There are countless other examples. Re-emphasize the power of your daily mantra in your life. Start today if you have not tried this approach in the past. Believe, embark, continue/stay the course, and watch great wonders unfold within your life.
Goodbye for now.
