“I tell you, in a way that you do not know, and you could not possibly devise, you will be led across a bridge of incident to the fulfillment of that state. All you have to do is ignore the evidence of your outer senses and go about your own wonderful business assuming the feeling of the wish fulfilled. Your assumption, instead of receding into the past, will advance into the future and you will walk right into its fulfillment.” – Neville Goddard
Many times it seems as if it’s the darkest, right before the dawn. Sometimes things need to get a bit more complicated – before they get simple again.
For the past six days, the photo you see here was my work station. That’s an ipad, with an external key board, that works off of a pretty slow signal in the mobile phone network. I love our garden, and I love working online, but this was far from the ideal combination.
“How the heck did I manifest that?”
For the past 3 years, I’ve been asking our old internet provider to replace the line that brings the internet to our home. Almost anytime it rained a bit or the wind blew too heavy – the net slowed down or stopped completely. As you can imagine, we got frustrated at times.
The main problem was, our internet service was being provided by a company called iiNet, and the physical lines are owned by another company called Telstra. So every time I called, iiNet made us go through about a dozen phone calls, to determine if our equipment was okay, then they promised to send out a technician of theirs, usually within four days to see what the problem REALLY was, and then – if they determined it was the line, they said would contact Telstra – who owned the physical cable.
The problem was, every time a iiNet technician visited – the problem was over. No new line, because there was no problem to document.
“This is way too complicated….”
So finally while still with iiNet – Victoria and I made two decisions:
- We have the best internet service in Australia. (We imagined that.)
- We are also switching to Telstra. (We made some phone calls.)
We thought we did this, because it made sense. If the line is owned by Telstra, why not use Telstra for the service too, that way if there is ever a problem – ONE phone call should be all it takes to get things done.
Meanwhile, after our imaginal act…
The last 6 weeks we were with iiNet, everything was PERFECT. It was the best it ever was. No drops in service. And it stayed fast – for adsl. But when we went to switch to Telstra, things got a bit stressful. Three times they changed the date of the installation. Finally, they settled on the 27th of November – which is tomorrow.
But for some reason…
On the 20th of November, there was a knock on the door, a technician from Telstra told us he got an unusual order to connect us up TODAY. One week early. That’s cool. He commented about how odd that was, but he did what it took to transfer the old adsl line from iiNet, to Telstra – and told us we would be up and running within the hour.
We weren’t. Not good.
So we called Telstra, our new internet provider and asked what’s up. That’s when they told us we would be connected up on the 28th. Even though the line was connected, and even though they promised us no down time – we were looking at being off line for 8 days. Not good. Not happy with Telstra. Remember, we were manifesting the BEST internet in Australia. And now we had none.
That’s when things got VERY interesting.
A man who was lost and needed help saw me outside and stopped to ask for directions. And for some reason, I ranted to him a bit. Never did I experience “service” like this. Never in my life. And that’s when he said:
“Why are you going with Telstra Adsl? You have FAST cable internet going right past your house here.”
I was floored. He showed me that there were two cable internet systems going right past our house, and with cable our internet would be 2 to 5 times as fast – for the same cost. (Good fun!)
So, we made 2 phone calls in the morning (Friday) and on Tuesday afternoon, we now have HIGH SPEED cable internet through Optus.
Lessons Learned: Remember what Neville says. We could have NEVER devised “how” all this was going to happen. All we could do is imagine having THE BEST INTERNET – and play the part we were drawn to play. So when you are imagining – go to the end.
“We have the best internet in Australia”.
If things went smooth with Telstra, we would have had the same slow internet. Obviously not what we imagined and obviously not what we wanted. We would have had easier customer service, but we wouldn’t really have what we chose. But since I was outside, letting off some steam….
A stranger stopped, and asked me for directions, at least that’s why he thought he was stopping by. The real reason he stopped by is that he had a part to play because of our imaginal act. His “job” was to tell us we had what we really wanted, going right by the house, and to tell us who to call about it.
How can you apply this in your life today?
Where have you been feeling it real – and trying to control the “how” it happens?
Go to the end, Follow-The-Formula, and keep the faith when things get a little nuts. Sometimes they do, and that’s okay. Sometimes that is part of the bridge of incident.
We love living in the end. We couldn’t have imagined up the problems with the new company, and we couldn’t have imagined up the stranger stopping by – those were part of the bridges of incident – part of the plan.
This is how Feel It Real works. Dive in, Follow-The-Formula, remain faithful, ignore APPEARANCES and GET WHAT YOU WANT.
You are so worth it.
