From Beyond the Stars

Manifesting the experiences and possessions that you want in your life includes buying them, but it is NOT limited to just using money to get what you want…

While sat with my son watching the first of the Star Wars films (The Phantom Menace) recently, it occurred to me how I can illustrate one of the biggest secrets to manifesting what you want with an example from this film.

Qui-Gon Jinn is trying to buy some parts to repair the spaceship they are traveling in. The problem is the only dealer of the parts they need won’t accept ‘federation credits’.

Another solution will present itself” says Qui-Gon Jinn after talking to Obi-Wan Kenobi to see if there is anything in the spaceship that they can use to barter with.

“Another Solution Will Present Itself”

The money they have isn’t accepted.

They have nothing to barter with.

Yet, “Another solution will present itself” is the attitude of Qui-Gon Jinn, he is keeping his eyes open to opportunity.

And in the end Qui-Gon Jinn doesn’t use any money to get what he wants. His solution (crazy as it is) involves winning the prize money for a race happening the next day. A race for which he has no vehicle to race and no money to pay the entrance fee either.

PodThe young Anakin Skywalker offers to help them out by flying in the race using the ‘Podracer’ he has built. The lack of entrance fee doesn’t Stop Qui-Gon Jinn either and with some clever negotiation he ends up working a deal with Anakin’s slave owner whereby (after a hair raising race full of all the thrills and spills you would expect from a sci-fi film), he ends up with all the parts he needs and pays off the young Anakin’s slave debt, thereby freeing him from a life of slavery. All from simply being open to opportunities.

Ok nice film but how does this apply to the real world?

Well one of the biggest ‘secrets’ about manifesting the experiences and things into your life is that you don’t always need to pay for them!

Sounds weird right?

It worked for Qui-Gon Jinn in the movies! And well, it’s working for me right now! Because after watching the film in a home cinema room I am now sat poolside writing this… poolside in a 9 bedroom mansion that I have paid no money to enjoy for two weeks this summer with my wife and son!

I have manifested into reality an amazing 9 bedroom house, with swimming pool, gym, party room, home cinema, tennis courts, lake and more with zero money!

There is a fair exchange of value going one, one that both parties are more than happy with and one that works for everyone perfectly and one that is FUN for both parties, happy days!

Buying the experiences and the possessions that you have and use is only one way of living the dream

Earlier this year I spent the winter months living on the beach in Goa, India and in a private villa with a couple of friends on the spiritual island of Koh Phangan for a fraction of the cost of buying that lifestyle permanently.

Opportunity Spotted. Opportunity Taken!

Flexibility… Lucidity… and keeping your Eyes Open to Opportunity are so important.

You can have your mind set on something so rigidly that you miss opportunities around you that are literally GIVING you what you want, just maybe in a slightly different way.

Looking back I’ve lost count of the number of missed opportunities that I let drift by in the past…

I’m much better at taking them now!

Whether you call it luck, being in the flow state or manifesting, one thing is true:

“Lucky people are skilled at creating, noticing and acting upon chance opportunities”
Professor Richard Wiseman.

The findings of Professor Wiseman’s 10 year study into luck are that luck is actually a skill that can be learnt, by anyone!

The Four Principles of ‘Lucky People' Who Manifest Amazing Opportunities in Life Are:

  • Keep Your Eyes Open to Opportunity
  • Trusting Your Intuition
  • Using the Power of Expectation (It’s already Done!)
  • Making Good Luck out of Misfortune

Open Your Eyes to the Opportunities that Surround You with Dynamic Hypnosis.

Remove the blinkers of the daily life and open your eyes fully to the opportunities all around you. AND know which opportunities to take to achieve the life of your dreams.

    I’m a by the seat of my pants kind of guy, and I have faith that when I reach for it I will alway get what I need. As crazy as it sounds it works for me, I don’t always get what I want. I do always get what I need.

      Hi Markus, the universe is there for you… when you have faith magic seems to happen. And being able to recognise that you do get what you need when you don’t get what you want, is the flexible mindset that helps the manifesting magic happen. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Thanks for highlighting other ways to get what you want without paying with money (as we know it)..
    I recently secured the use of a 15-hectare farmland by sharing ideas on farming with a friend. He owns 5 hectares and a couple of people granted us use of their land when they found out what we are doing…
    Thanks always John..

The Interesting Thing About Luck...

Professor Richard Wiseman, gave two groups of people who described themselves as lucky and unlucky a newspaper and asked them to look through it and count how many photographs were inside. 

On average the unlucky people took about two minutes to count the photographs, whereas the lucky people took just seconds. Why? Because the second page of the newspaper contained the message: "Stop counting. There are 43 photographs in this newspaper." This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than 2in high. It was staring everyone straight in the face, but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it.

He also placed a second large message halfway through the newspaper saying: "Stop counting. Tell the experimenter you have seen this and win £250." Again, the unlucky people didn’t have their Eyes Open to Opportunity missed it because they were still too busy looking for photographs.
