Manifesting a Harbour View
First thing in the morning, you click on Chrome or Internet Explorer. What comes up?
For me, for almost two years, Chrome was set to open up five tabs automatically:
2. Royal Bank (always gotta keep your eye on your personal finances)
3. My website editor
4. Mini Aquarium facebook page, and
5. St. John's Harbour view webcam.
Everyday, I would wake up at 6:00am and check them all.
This webcam pointed right out to the St. John's Harbour "narrows", named for its narrow opening to the open sea, and the charismatic row houses of St. John's.
During the day, I would see ships coming and going. If I checked at night, you would just see the glows of headlights of horny teenagers on top of Signal Hill (left).
I opened this webcam everyday to remind myself where I wanted to be, what I was doing it all for, to see the community I was hoping to make a difference within. See the ocean I was hoping to protect. Plus, Newfoundlanders love taking about the weather so you "gots" to know what's blowing.
One day while during the summer, I sat down on my bed and opened my laptop. I clicked on the fifth tab and saw the beautiful view of the narrows and the city of St. John's on the webcam.
I slowly looked up just over my laptop screen, to the window frame in front of me and then to the wide open view in front of me, and I realized - it was the exact same view.
The webcam that I had watched for years was attached to the building just one block away from the apartment building Ruby and I had rented for the summer. When Ruby and I signed for the apartment, we knew we had hit the jackpot with this two floor, two bedroom apartment in a converted church with big bay windows overlooking the harbour. But I didn't put it all together until just then.
It was the most remarkable feeling to know that all that thought and intention, came to fruition. Not just the manifestation of a super rad apartment with a killer view. It was the realization that the dream of opening a Mini Aquarium in Newfoundland, just as I had envisioned, had come true. The feeling was unmatched.
What are you looking at everyday? What are you manifesting?
Choose wisely. You could get exactly what you seek.
