Just For Fun Manifestation

Hello All! Another great day to give this life thing another shot - isn’t it?

Sorry I use that line so often but it is truly the first thing I think of when I wake up every morning so it just seems natural to type it here.

I created an interesting manifestation one day last week that keeps popping into my head so I guess I am meant to write about it here, small as it is.

Then again I have learned to see the small manifestations as important as the larger ones; because regardless of the size, it is constant proof to me that Universe is always listening and delivering what I request. Always and in All Ways.

So anyway, last Thursday morning I got in the car with my son to drive him to school. I have been as happy as a clam ever since I got my satellite radio installed in the truck because I love the 70’s and 80’s channels filled with all my old favorite songs commercial free.

One of my favorite old songs is a corny one that came out in 1979 called Makin’ It. It was from an old T.V. show and had been on the charts a couple of weeks back then. It‘s just an upbeat tune I have always loved.

As soon as we were buckled in I turned to my son and said “You know what song I am in the mood for? Makin It. Then I looked up at the ceiling and said “Hear that Universe? I want to hear the song Makin’ It” and I caught my son doing the old eye roll as I hit the button for the 70s station.

The rolling of his eyes wasn’t because I was talking out loud to Universe. He’s quite used to that and I am happy to report is starting to do it himself. It was more due to the fact that on the rare occasion that the song does come on, I usually full blast it and sing it at the top of my lungs.

But to my slight disappointment and my son’s huge relief we didn’t hear it on our short ride that morning.

The fun occurred in the afternoon however when I went to pick him up. As soon as we got in the car together and I turned on the radio - there was the song!

But that wasn’t the fun part!

The fun part is when I realized the song was not on the 70’s station as it should have been, but was on the least likely station I would ever expect to find it. It was on the Opie and Anthony channel.

For those of you who don’t know, the Opie and Anthony show is an edgy talk radio show syndicated all over the country. I happened to have left the station on while running my errands during the day.

Unbeknownst to me, the singer of Makin’ It, David Naughton, had been arrested the previous day for spousal battery, and Opie and Anthony were discussing it on the show along with playing the song in the background.

Now believe me when I say, for no other reason would this station be playing this song. This is the kind of song they live to abuse. Even my son’s mouth hung open as he realized what station was playing it. “This is on Opie and Anthony?” I just laughed as I said “Universe works in mysterious ways!“ and listened to the rest of the broadcast which played clips of the song in the background at least another 3 times.

So I guess the lesson here is, do not assume to know the best way Universe will bring you what you are asking for and do not limit the ways it can bring it. If I had left the 70’s station on searching for the song, there was a good chance I would have never heard it. Instead Universe delivered it in under 7 hours from a most unlikely source.

So if you would like to have a little fun today, pick something unusual you would like to see manifest to prove to yourself that Universe is indeed always working in the background.

Make it a pink elephant, a blue feather or a purple car. Then keep your eyes open and watch in amazement as a delivery truck with a giant pink elephant logo on it pulls in front of you on the highway.

You will not ever doubt Universe again.

Happy Creating!
