I Always Get the Perfect Parking Space By Elsabe Smit
I want to talk today about something that we tend to take for granted when it suits us, but we disbelieve when we are made aware of us.
I am referring to the amazing ability we have to know what will happen to us before it happens.
Sometimes we have as little as five seconds prior notice, and other times we have as much prior notice as we decide we want.
For example, you think of someone and the phone rings and the caller is the person you have been thinking about. Or for a few days you keep thinking of a person you have not been in contact with, and "out of the blue" you get an email or a phone call from this person, or you bump into them at the supermarket.
We have all had experiences where we struggled with a problem and went to sleep and woke up with the answer, or where we have a sudden thought from "nowhere" that reminds us of an appointment that we had forgotten.
Where do these thoughts come from?
And we have all met people that we disliked even before we were introduced to them, for no obvious reason -- or the opposite, where we felt an attraction to a complete stranger like a fellow commuter or a person from a group that we would not normally mix with, and became friends with that person.
In all those instances we are dealing with the same source -- what I like to describe as the quantum soup of the subconscious.
The subconscious is the source of all our thoughts and actions. We can imagine it as being a massive store room that contains all that ever was, is and will be. We take from that storeroom all the time, use what we need and put back into storage.
Various people, from lottery winners to rape victims, have claimed that they "had always known" that they would have the experience. How did they know? Simple. They are aware of the quantum vacuum and they allow experiences from there to materialize and then they live those experiences.
But tell those same people that have all these experiences to visualize a parking space next time they go shopping, and most of them will say they cannot do it. Because suddenly you require them to do consciously what they do unconsciously all the time.
We have continuous access to our subconscious, and we use it all the time. By the time an idea forms in our minds, that idea have been retrieved form the subconscious and approved by the brain, and is ready to face the world.
When we get ideas from "nowhere" or from "out of the blue" we simply access our subconscious without even being aware of it -- much like stumbling out of bed after a deep sleep, making coffee, and then wondering where the coffee came from once we are awake.
People that are aware of this process, consciously tap into their subconscious and retrieve at will what they require to achieve amazing things in their lives.
You can practice using this ability consciously by starting with the simple exercise of "ordering" a parking space when you leave home, or by "scanning" a large parking area to find the one elusive parking space that everyone else seems to miss.
Of course a large part of the success of this is that you need to understand with your brain that it is possible, and also believe with your heart and soul. If you cannot do that, you have too many fears and preconceived ideas in the way.
I know there are people who read this and say it is not possible. As the saying goes, for those that do not believe no proof will be adequate, and for those that do believe, no proof is necessary.
I am not here to convince you that there is more to life than this world. You decide for yourself. What I do know is that if we both want parking at the same place and you have doubts, I will get the parking space. Sorry!
