I have been having a hard time with the process of writing lately, so I was gonna put my report on the shelf for a while until I felt the flow return.
This morning I found a blog post from Karin, “Be Careful What You Wish For”, detailing a very similar situation that happened to her.
Since Karin’s story is so similar, I feel inspired to finish it and post, so here goes.
There is a nice park near where I live that my dogs and I walk nearly every day. This park has these tall majestic trees that branch out way at the top and form a canopy from the sun. The trunk is very straight and clean, with virtually no other branches.
The high canopy provides shade from the harshest sun rays while the branch-less trunk allows early and late sun light to reach the soil below, allowing growth of grass and plant life.
I do not have a garage, so I decided I wanted to plant one of these trees in my yard to eventually provide shade for my car, while simultaneously allowing my grass to flourish.
I didn’t know what kind of tree it was, but the leaf was very distinct. I figured it would not be hard to find a sapling, so I journeyed off the trail in search of a miniature “canopy” tree to transplant to my yard.
Well, to make a long story short, I searched high and low and could not locate a dwarf tree. I mean I searched for hours until I finally had to give up.
After three consecutive days of searching the woods, I concluded that babies of this type of tree must have different looking leaves.
So I got on Google to try to determine what type of tree it was. Through research I found out the tree was named a Tulip Poplar. I also found out that the seedlings had leaves exactly like the mature tree.
Learning that the leaves were the same, I figured if there were a little Tulip poplar in the woods, I would have already found one. So I went ahead a purchased one to plant in my yard. After I finished the transplant process, and was happy with how it looked, I went about my business. As we tend to do, I totally put my mind on some other apparent pressing issue and forgot all about the Tulip Poplar adventure.
Well, a few days later, as I was walking in the park with the dogs as my routine, I glanced over and saw what looked like a baby Tulip Poplar. I could not believe how I could have missed it because it was right near the trail I walked nearly every day.
At first I was a little upset that I went out and bought one, but then I remembered that this was how it works with manifestation. We have to forget about getting what we want and let go of the actual wanting , before what we think we want will show up. So I left the tree where it lay to admire on another day.
Now this is where its gets really crazy. A few days later I started to do some spring mulching in my front bushes. As I was clearing the old leaves, there was what I thought was initially a weed growing up. As I grabbed this weed to pull, I suddenly realized it was a baby Tulip Poplar! Right in my own yard! I was astonished, with a huge grin on my face.
All of this was incredible enough, but there is more. A few days later, as I was cutting my grass, I looked own and noticed there was baby Tulip poplar growing? I mean right in the grass! I thought these trees were some delicate thing that rarely survived in the wild, yet I find one growing right in my front yard! This was hilarious.
But the most insane thing happened a few weeks later. I started noticing weeds growing in the cracks of my sidewalk entry way. As I bent over to pull these invaders, would you believe I found a little baby Tulip Poplar growing through the cement crack? Right at my front door!? Ahahahahah!
Manifestation , its real. But I should also mention, manifestation does not gives us what we all REALLY want. But it sure is interesting and fun!
