Why do we struggle when we want to manifest for others?
One of the most common things I hear in readings is “I just wish Jimmy (or whoever) could see that the actions he is taking aren’t serving him. Why is he behaving this way? “ etcetera.
Here’s the thing. We all do this. We all wonder why whoever it is can’t get their stuff together and make the right choices. There are a couple of things that we need to remember.
Manifest For Others – Jimmy
This is Jimmy’s path, not ours.
We cannot manifest anything for Jimmy. Before Jimmy came into this life he planned it all out rather painstakingly with the assistance of his guides. He determined the life that he was going to live and the lessons he was meant to learn. Some of them might be harder than others and the other moving target that comes into play here is Jimmy’s free will. Free will makes things tricky because we essentially forget that soul purpose and plan when we come back to earth in the next incarnation and we have free will to decide not to learn these lessons.
Lessons To Manifest For Others
These lessons keep coming back to bite us in the butt through repeating patterns. Why do the same things keep happening to Jimmy? Well, what does Jimmy need to learn from the situation and is he making the choice to pay attention and learn it? Will Jimmy ever come around? Maybe, but it’s up to him to walk the path that he’s on. Our path is unapologetically ours. The earth plane is here as a learning experience with the goal of soul growth.
No matter what we like or do not like, we cannot manifest for others. We can send Jimmy love and compassion, but we cannot learn the lesson for him. Make sense? Just as we don’t like it when someone tells us that all of our decisions and choices are wrong and it seems to be clear to everyone but us, it’s the same. Have compassion and understanding and try to see things from the other person’s perspective.
Manifest For Others – Your Perception
Your perception is based on your own reality.
Yeah, this one can be a tough one to hear sometimes. Like I said, Jimmy’s on his path and I’m on my path. Our souls could be on different levels and here to learn different lessons in this lifetime. I might not agree with what he’s doing based on my perception of his life. I’m not Jimmy and he is not me, so my life may not make sense to him either. Maybe Jimmy thinks his life is going along just swimmingly and is operating in the way he wants it to operate.
Manifest For Others – Our Perception
Our perception is based on what we would or would not want in our own life and that does not affect Jimmy in any way. His life is his and he sees it differently than I do. It gets more complicated if I am Jimmy’s parent or relative. Of course, I want the best for him and I can see his potential from my own perspective. Unfortunately, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Support, listen and encourage. Be compassionate and entertain a different point of view. Jimmy will get there when he’s meant to get there on his own terms.
Manifest For Others – Compassion
So here’s the thing. As much as we want closure from someone or as much as we want them to do the right thing, we must remember to view people with compassion. We are responsible at all times for our own happiness. Situations with others can cause us some stress, but it’s important to acknowledge and release them. No one else’s happiness is your responsibility. Do what you can for yourself in order to manifest your own life and treat others with love and compassion.
You can never truly know the path another is walking unless you are in their body with them. Sure, you might have gone through something similar, but it’s never exactly the same. As I said above, listen, support and encourage. Try to see things from the point of view of the other person. You might not understand it, but by making the effort you open your mind to new and different possibilities.
Until next time keep your thoughts positive and your vibration high!
