When my daughter was young (she's 30 now :-)), we shared this kind of communication. There was one incident in particular when she was in school getting in serious trouble and I was out on a walk nearby. I could feel that something was very wrong, but didn't know what until I got a call from the Vice Principal that afternoon asking me to come in for a conference. I believe I was feeling her fear at having gotten into trouble. I tend to pick up on feelings more than thoughts, but I think the same concept applies.
Kabbalah teaches that the manifestation process requires moving through the thought and feeling of having your heart’s desire and also taking action. Sometimes you don’t get what you want simply because you don’t bother to do anything—like send out a resume, join a singles group, or save money for a new car. Be sure to take action in addition to focusing your thoughts and feelings on your desire. In fact, the effort that you put forth create what you want through your action is seen by the Kabbalists as the most important aspect of the manifestation process.
Do you believe that you are not worthy of having food, shelter, nice things… well, there you might have a bit of trouble so I encourage you to have a chat – a long, deep chat – with your Higher Self and your angels and guides. They will steer you in the right direction of believing that you are a Divine being who IS – absolutely – worthy of what you desire.
Look. Yes, you should have a vision of what you want your life to look like. I have a very clear vision. But it’s not hanging over my head. It’s in my pocket. Actually, it’s in my phone. And it changes as I change. They are a list of wants and goals but not needs. They do not define me or my worth. My vision acts as a compass. Do I want these things? Fuck yes I want these things. Will I not allow myself to be happy if I don’t obtain them? Nope. Been there, done that. Never again.
