We manifest our thoughts all the time, but since we rarely expect the results, we often miss the link between ourselves and future events in our lives.
One of my most fun examples of this method of creation is my cat, Maya. About four years ago, after moving into a condo, I found myself missing the company of animals, especially the felines which are my namesake. Unconsciously, this thought and strong feeling of desire for their companionship took place on a fairly regular basis, especially when I opened the door of my refrigerator. Let me explain. There is a plastic magnetized bill holder located on the top right side of the door and it has a picture of a sleeping cat on it. Every time I would see the photograph, I would think about how much I loved cats and wished I had one again. I would normally follow that thought with one which reflected that it would not be fair to the cat since it would not have access to the outdoors given the high density of vehicle traffic on the street.
A few months went by until I received a phone call about a kitten found motherless in a local warehouse. At first, I refused to take it in hoping someone else would come forth with a more appropriate home. The next day, when neither its mother or another human claimed this miniature starving and very loud bundle of fur, I agreed to take it in and raise it to the best of my ability.
Fast forward six months later and Maya is now a playful adolescent cat. As she grew, I photographed her progress and marveled at my good "luck" in finding a perfect indoor cat. One day, I was placing her latest photo on my fridge when I suddenly realized that Maya had grown into a carbon copy of the cat in the photo on the bill holder.
The Universe sent me a cat who hated being outdoors so that she would meet my specified requirements.
How cool is that!
