Our selves, our lives are so full of possibilities waiting to be unearthed. Sowing the seeds today, to manifest prosperity, abundance and starting to create those wonderful feelings of groundedness within ourselves in the future is magick. The message I’m taking from the Ace of Pentacles is to follow my gut instinct, dare greatly, manifest abundance, and take action when opportunities present themselves to me,
Manifestation is the art of creating a positive synergy in the universe, putting out there the things you want, being grateful for what you have and being willing to accept the universe providing in way that that challenges your expectations.
When I say I want my business to be able to support myself financially, my whole rhetoric and thought processes has been completely challenged.
- How do I view money?
- Am I attached to it?
- Do I have a scarcity complex?
- What is the emotional labour am I willing to exchange for money?
- Most importantly, what do I consider to be “enough” money for me?
This continues to be and has been the most wonderful challenging journey in ways, I never expected. Manifestation of abundance can be as complex or by complete contrast the most simple thing.
I moved house in October last year from one room into a little 1 brm apartment. I didn’t have the money or the furniture to furnish my living area. I love to decorate in a unique creative way and the temptation to start browsing the internet for quirky furnishings was so tempting. As a highly visual person I created a vision in my mind’s eye of what I wanted my little house to look like. The colours, the textures and the fabric. Sometimes the things we dream of don’t come to us on a platter the way we imagine.
A seed of productivity has been planted in your life although you may not yet recognise it. When the seed sprouts, it could take almost any form. It might be a feeling of centeredness, desire for results or need to focus on practical matters. Being open to unexpected gifts, opportunities or synchronistic events surprising us with the answers to our manifestations.
I have always lusted after a luxurious chaise lounge, that almost fairy tale kind, long enough to lay on but not too long that it would take up my entire room. A dark velvety fabric with some sort of baroque pattern. You’re starting to see it in your imagination. Daringly I manifest all this to the universe.
I found myself talking out loud describing it and saying how excited I was and the feeling or how grounded and peaceful my house would feel all put together. All the wonderful things I could create, the friendships and conversations I’d share in the space I’d imagined in my head.
Then one day, driving through my local suburb, unexpectedly glancing at the hard rubbish / tip junk on the side of the road verge. Low and behold there was my couch!! Except it was a grimy peach, covered in mould, and tatty fabric looking sad and rejected in the damp grass. Exactly the opposite of what I’d imagined. The old peach fabric was covered in light mould, the wooden legs were rotting and the seat cover was a daggy torn leopard print . If I wanted my dream couch, there was going to be A LOT of hard work involved.
Today my couch is glorious, the jewel of my little nook. I found the exact fabric I wanted and saved up to buying it. I spent many hours sweating ripping fabric off the frame, stripping it back ready for its new life.
I embrace the element of risk and failure when I stick my neck out, manifesting new things and trying to effect disruptive change in my life. The Ace of Pentacles encourages me to go forward trusting the process, my practical self-knowledge and my openness to unconventional opportunities that I might otherwise have missed.
I’ve really had to be super patient to get what I’d wished for. Simple magick. I’m glad it happened this way as this couch means so much more to me, since I put so much effort and work into it myself. I could have gone and bought the finished product, but it wouldn’t have touched me, broken me, or taught me this lesson. It now carries memories of my my magick, my hard work and love – the precious gift manifestation has given me.
- I asked for something super specific.
- I was not expectant or impatiently waiting for it to appear.
- I trusted the process, embraced the risk and let go of feelings of scarcity.
- I was open and ready to learn the lessons the universe would teach me, in order to receive it.
- I was prepared to put in the hard work to bring my manifestation to life.
I love to share stories of my experiences to show this magick is possible. I don’t mean to portray it as an easy or quick process that won’t also be challenging. I acknowledge that my experience and journey is completely unique, my way of doing things will not work for everyone, and I acknowledge my privileges that make some of this possible. I am grateful for my abundance and do my best to share, build up and journey with those who I love, and those who’s needs I can make lighter.
Come join me – connect, share tea on my couch one day <3
