Success Story: Not Allowing the Current Circumstances to Dictate Your State
Long time no see! I want to start this post by saying that I realize that I pretty much named this success story the same way I named one of my previous success stories. It’s another story about healing a seeming another and it involves not accepting current circumstances, so I only saw it fitting to title it similarly.
I have always loved Neville’s stories about people who took what he taught and manifested their desires. One story that always stood out to me is the story about Louise Berlay. She is such a fascinating woman! The way he describes her is so motivating and always inspired me to be as stubborn as only a Taurus can be! Jokes aside, it’s not my zodiac sign that makes me stubborn, it’s all me.
What Neville said about Louise is this:
“I have never met anyone more intense than that woman. She has a determination like steel; you can’t divert her.”Neville Goddard
Can you see why she would become a role model for me? I always aspired to be the type of the person that cannot be diverted from their path. So, I chose this state for myself when it comes to manifesting and I always employ it when I am emotional about the things that I am manifesting.
Recently, my cat got ill. I love this cat. He practically talks to me and I feel responsible for him since I had to take care of him since he was 3 weeks old and his mom died. You can imagine I would fight tooth and nail for him, having watched him grow up and always taking care of him. When I got the news that his kidneys may fail, after which his liver will inevitably fail and being told by the vet that he can’t keep him alive with infusion therapies, which means that he will die, I felt as helpless as I’ve ever felt. Mentally, I was blaming the vets first, thinking they gave him the wrong medicine because he was fine after the first treatment but after the second one he went back to being in pain. Then, I inevitably started blaming myself because I let him eat normal food when he should have been eating special food but I could not resist it when he clearly wanted to eat what other cats were eating.
As you can see, my state of mind was… Well, all over the place. I felt so responsible for what had happened to him that for a moment, I forgot all I learned by reading Neville and talking to other Neville’s students.
Then, it hit me. What am I doing? I have all the tools I need. So, why am I over here blaming others and myself? That makes no sense. First thing I did was revise what the vet said. Instead of hearing him say, “We can’t keep your cat alive with infusion therapy, you need to get him to drink and eat normally and you have until tomorrow, there is only so much we can do with medicine”, I heard him say, “Don’t worry about it. He is a strong boy. He survived a very ugly illness before. You know he will make it this time as well.” I kept repeating this until I felt the relief. I did not consciously enter the state akin to sleep because I was so anxious about this situation that I felt like any type of SATS or any other technique would make me even more anxious. What I did was that I distracted myself with video games while hearing this new story. Well, it did the trick because I felt the relief.
Once I did that, I decided to add a bit more to it by imagining him healthy. Here is the thing though, and something I want to bring to your attention as you may be doing it as well: Neville tells us to go to the end, where the situation is already resolved, but when I am anxious or just generally emotional, I tend to want to imagine the solution! My first instinct was to imagine the vet telling me that my cat will survive. But that’s not it! I don’t want the vet to tell me this, it could be taken out of context or it could be reversed later on with something else. Do you know what cannot be reversed? Imagining my cat a few years down the road and telling one of my relatives, “Gee, do you remember how he scared us a few years back when he had that kidney infection? But look at him now, he’s been healthy ever since!” This type of scene would inevitably include the vet giving me good news, one way or another. It would also include my cat recovering completely. I chose that one and as I was experiencing it in my imagination, it felt real the first time around. Once I left the scene, I knew it was a done deal. An overwhelming feeling of relief and conviction that my cat is fine overcame me and no thoughts contrary to that had any power over me from this point on. They felt ridiculous and I would reject them for that same reason. I was as intense as I could be without being too forceful. It didn’t feel like arguing with myself. It felt like this is what I need to do. I chose this new reality in which my cat is recovered and why on Earth would I entertain anything else? It kind of felt like scolding a child when I was redirecting my mind but not in a vicious way. It felt more like a reminder, like when you remind your child that brushing their teeth means that they won’t have to go to the dentist, except twice a year. It comes from a place of love and the child understands it. Plus, it doesn’t have to go to the dentist, and what child loves a dentist? Yes, this may be a silly example but it’s the closest I can come up with, when I am describing the feelings that arose.
Well, that same day, my cat started eating again. He was still in pain a little bit and not eating as much as he normally would but it was huge progress compared to the few days before that. The next day, he was even better. He was eating normally again. The vet gave him his treatment and said that if he keeps eating normally, he will not have to get another one. He will get some medicine that he can take at home and that’s it.
And that’s exactly what happened.
Now, if there is anything I want you to take away from this post it’s that being as intense as Louise Berlay doesn’t mean you are putting in 110% of willpower and effort. To me, being intense is the same as being stubborn, when it comes to conscious manifesting. It’s about being faithful to your desired reality so much so that you reject anything else. You don’t compromise. You don’t change your desired outcome because of some minor incident that happens in the meantime. You keep your eyes on the prize and you don’t take them off until you are there.
I wish you all happy manifesting and I am looking forward to reading your success stories as well!
