The first time I read a book by Esther Hicks was in February of 2010. The book was Ask and it is Given, and it resonated with me completely. I immediately began trying to increase my vibration, create an even more positive attitude, and manifest my riches. And when I say riches, I specifically mean a water view home.
My deepest desire is to have a home that looks out over the water. Water calms me, energizes me, and uplifts my spirit. In those first fledgling years learning about the law of attraction, I poured immense energy into telling the universe that I want a water view home. Even when my lottery numbers didn’t hit, I kept feeling excited about the next draw, always certain that my big win was just around the corner. One time in particular, I must have really had my hopes up because when my numbers didn’t hit, my positivity balloon burst.
I fell into a depression, and railed at the universe for not giving me my truest desire. I couldn’t understand why my water view home eluded me! It was around that time that I heard Esther say something to the effect of “ it’s not the manifestation you want, it’s the way the manifestation makes you feel.” So I sat down to journal about how I was going to feel when I did manifest my water view home.
Happy, calm, uplifted, joyful, connected to Spirit.
This was the manifestation I wanted. These emotions were what I truly desired, and I thought that I could get them through living in a home with a water view. So I started looking for ways to manifest the emotions of happy, calm, uplifted, joyful, and connected to Spirit.
I live close enough to the Napa River to walk there in 15 minutes. I live close enough to a small park that overlooks the Carquinez Bridge to walk there in 10 minutes. One of the things I started doing each day was walking to one of these places, sometimes both. I began referring to the little park as “my patio” so I could say that this was the view from “my patio.”
My walks allow me to feel happy, calm, uplifted, joyful, connected to Spirit, vibrant, healthy, and active. Plus I get to see the water every day! Bonus!
Something else I started doing was to manifest one or more waterview homes every time we go on vacation. When we travel anywhere, I pay a little extra, and then for a week or more, I get to savor my coffee each morning looking out on the water I love. I get to infuse myself with the essence of sunlight sparkling on water. I relish the rich colors of sunrise and the deep beauty of sunsets. I charge my batteries with the current produced by thrashing waves, or roaring waterfalls. And I carry that energy with me each and every day and let it buoy my positivity.
I still buy lottery tickets and I fully expect to win a fortune each time because it’s fun to think about all the fun I’ll have. But in the mean time, I’m already manifesting what I truly desire!
What is it that you want more than anything?

How can you create that emotion now?
Make a short list of people, places, or things that bring you that emotion already.
