Me vs The Almighty: Hold to Your Vision!
If you’ve ever spent your fire to MAKE something happen, following your own convictions, and had someone else try to use your fuel for their own fire, you know how important it is to hold to your ownÂ vision ifÂ you’reÂ going to make it happen.
IÂ met The AlmightyÂ while manifesting a new project that’s been quite important to me.Â Not THEÂ Almighty,Â just someone who thinks he is.
He’d heard about something I wanted to manifest and wanted to be a part of it.Â He himself wanted to manifest somethingÂ similar he said.Â Only, I’d taken steps to make it happen and he’d not done anything except contact me after hearing of what I was doing.Â HeÂ hadÂ thought about doing the same things I had but…well, thereÂ was always anÂ excuse, though they were certainly viable excuses.
This guy hadÂ it all–Â he was brilliant, charismatic, good-looking, all outwardly successful and supposedly as qualifiedÂ in every way to manifest this particular outcome as I am.Â Â His initial contacts with me were friendly and he even, I felt, tried to ingratiate himself through a few well-chosen phrases.Â Â My guard went up with him, though I didn’t know why at the time.Â I just stuck to my plan and welcomed him into the fold as part of what I’mÂ working to manifest.Â Â Still, I had this inkling ofÂ “Why isÂ he involved?Â What could he possibly get out of this?Â This isn’t for him.”Â My vision of what this project offered to those working with me would have been like a college professor going back to kindergarten to learn his colors.
To be very frank, this project is 100% my baby.Â It will be done as I envision or I won’t be involved.Â I’ve already been given my “directions” by Spirit about how to do this, and I won’t settle for it being something else.Â I know how it’s supposed to look. I’d been very precise in explaining what I was looking to manifest, and everyone who got involved–about 15 people–was thrilled to have the opportunity to work on this project and had the same outcome in mind as I did.
I had to work late on a couple of occasions, soÂ The Almighty stepped in, mentioning that he has more experience with this than I do.Â Except that I’d already told everyoneÂ I was working late and when we’d resume. ExceptÂ thatÂ The Almighty does not have more experience with this than I do.Â Â Â The first time it happened, I was too busy with work to worry about what he was doing and decided to chalkÂ it up to being overzealous about something new and exciting.
He began, within the next few days, to try to make this project look like something other than what I was trying to manifest.Â His subtle manipulations turned not so subtle, and he told me how I was doing it all wrong and how this project should look.Â Â When I explained that what he wants to manifest has never been my vision and I’ve been clear on my visionÂ allÂ along, he accused me of not being serious about the project.
It’s only now asÂ IÂ write this that I remember a clairvoyantÂ friend telling me, aboutÂ this project, “Hold to your vision!”Â That was many weeks ago, and I’d forgotten it and at the time, I couldn’t imagine why she was so adamant that I not let anything or anyone change my focus.
But as forÂ The Almighty,Â he has gone off in a flounce, not able toÂ commandeerÂ the project I’ve brought this far and change it into his vision.Â It’s still myÂ vision, and itÂ is manifesting EXACTLY the way I wanted.
As for me, I will share my light and heat without giving awayÂ my fire.
