Facebook As A Manifesting Tool
(Manifesting Through The Back Door)
(by Susan James)
There is very little that I have loved more than my search
in understanding of how things 'really' work. IT probably
searched for me, as much or more, than I have searched
for IT. Meaning things work a lot differently and
uniquely than what many of us are told., including many
metaphysical-spiritual understandings. However, in
defense of us all, new understandings will work to a
degree, then we have to choose to go beyond that point.
I have always chosen beyond. It's what I love.
Which brings us to this essay on the use of Facebook as a
manifesting tool. I am not a 'chatty' type. I don't visit
online about the doings in my day. Do I enjoy the doings
of others, however? Well, of course I do...we love little
snippets into the lives of others. I usually put things in
cyberspace, if I have something 'to bring to the table'. Its
always been my approach, both business and personally.
It's what makes us all different and interesting. We all
choose to do things differently, because we are all
different. It's a good thing.
Enter the social networks. How can we use these networks
and why bother, if we aren't going to be well, 'social'. It's
how they are designed, unless we have something to
promote along business lines..which as a writer-
entrepreneur, I do. It's what I bring to the table. I love
business and all of its dynamics almost as much as the
love of how things work. However, even promoting ones
business can be overwhelming to others, enter again,
One famous novelist was quoted as saying: "God gives
every bird his worm, but he DOES NOT throw it into the
nest." Question: What if the 'opposite' of that is true?
Answer: It is.
We have a natural curiosity of how things work. How can
we fix this or that? How can we create this or that, how'd
they do that! Thousands, millions of books, articles,
documentaries are based on 'how' things happen or can
happen. How can we be better at us, so that we can have
more fun, being us? Major industries from Publishing to
Science, Medicine, Automotive, Engineering, and
Architecture to Pharmaceuticals are all based and
expanded upon the 'The How-To' fabric. How to get
better at feeling better, living better and being better at us!
We have a natural desire and hunger for 'better and more'.
It's what moves us along. It's the undercurrent of desire
running through humanity.
What if we understood, that 'time' is a 'thing'. It has only
2 directions. Forward and backwards. But what if we
taught ourselves to operate outside of that perspective:
Answer: We can.
How great would it be, if we didn't have to wait for what
we needed or wanted. What if we really knew we didn't
have to wait. How much stress and strain would we rid
ourselves of, if we knew we didn't need to wait for what
we needed or wanted.
Enter again Facebook. Using the "Farmville" Application
as an example: We show up, we get coins. We hear the
cha-ching of coins. We didn't have to do anything other
than show up. What if it could really be like this? No toil
and strain. We show up, we get cool stuff. Answer: It Is
People send us crops, just for fun. We send people crops
and cows and bunnies, just for fun. We get more coins,
just for fun. The harvest of any crops or animals can be
anywhere from 4 hours to 4 days. All pretty colors and
shapes, just for fun. All filled with bits of light energy and
pieces of ourselves, just for fun.
We get to build our own little or big farm in cyberspace.
We get to build and add to our farms. We don't need to
chat about it, the game does it for us. We are in our
imagination as we are doing it. If we understand even the
basics of imagination, we will know this is a great thing!
We are putting our minds in the space of, "we don't have
to do something to get something, and cool stuff shows
It 'feels good' to play this game. It gets us use to having
what we want, just for the fun of it, and without having to
toil and strain over it. What if we could have our lives
show up that way and live as we would choose, instead of
how we are. Answer: We can.
What if we reach the place where we no longer need to
add the 'feeling good' to it, and just the thought of it,
brings it to us...Answer: We can!
How? Funny you should ask HOW? It's simple but not
everyone will do it. Why? Because they don't know
If they knew how, they would bypass all of the doing and
actions that all of those HOW-to books tell them about.
We don't need them to fulfill our desires. But until we
expand to the place where we know how....we will
continue to toil and strain even over the little things, when
we don't need to. Some of us will keep slamming
ourselves with man made laws and man made spiritual
concepts that have had their way with us. But there is
Want to know what it is like to get something for
nothing? Play Farmville in Facebook, and that will give
you a clue to your future, if you teach yourself HOW.
If you play, as you play, begin asking yourself, could it
really be like this, for me? Answer: Yes it Can!
What do you have to be willing to do, to get to the place
where you find you don't need to do stuff, in order to get
Read and Write
Read and Write, What?
There are various phases depending on where you are as
you begin. My suggestion is ask to be led to your 'next'.
You will be led.
If you are stuck for something to read, you can find many
free things that would help you along your way, on my
websites and blogs. If you are on my newsletter lists, go
back and read the past issues, they are all on yahoogroups.
There is information everywhere. Why is it everywhere?
Because... "God gives every bird his worm and he DOES
throw it into the nest!" (sj)
