My therapist recently emailed me this article. It talks about expressing fulfillment/contentment with what we already have as only then can your wished be manifested. The article talks about the creative power setting the universe in motion to fulfill your wishes only as you see them already happening.

When we affirm that we are fulfilled rather than deficient, we are asserting that contentment is a natural way of being.
The creative power of the universe is infinite. A single molecule’s destiny is as important as the consequences of the largest supernova. Human potential is subject to this power, but because we are sentient beings, each of us is permitted to choose whether we will struggle against it or work in tandem with it. When we give voice to our desires through focused meditation or solicit the help of spirit guides, we draw upon the universe’s creative power to achieve certain ends. However, because our words are not all the universe hears, the response we receive may surprise us. The discourse we establish through our appeals is a blend of speech, thought, intention, and subconscious reflection. When we ask the universe for something, the unspoken message is that what we want does not exist, and the universe accepts this as truth. Conversely, we manifest completeness through affirmations in which we declare our desires as if we have already obtained them.
When we affirm that we are fulfilled instead of articulating deficiencies, we are asserting that contentment is a natural and necessary element of human existence. Our essence is an expression of fulfillment–the universe wants to satisfy our needs and desires. When we describe our realities in positive terms, we are not denying the challenges inherent in existence. We choose not to focus on lack or dissatisfaction because we understand that the energy of our thoughts will determine the response we receive to our entreaties. Ask yourself how you would feel if your wishes were granted, and then allow yourself to internalize that emotional state. Try to create a picture of satisfaction so vivid that its reality is unquestionable and tell the universe that your vision is fact. At the close of your appeal, express your gratitude, as it is your acknowledgment of the truth of your fulfillment that will set the creative power of the universe into motion.
Working in perfect unison with the creative power of the universe will empower you to manifest spiritual realities in your material existence. As you affirm the beauty, peace, and goodness that already exist within in your life, your capacity to sense and understand their influence will become increasingly sophisticated. To meet your needs and achieve your desires, you need then only banish all thoughts of emptiness so that the energy of completeness can attract fullness into your being.
So, what is it that I wish to see and that I can already express gratitude for? I am grateful for being a warrior. I am a warrior in surviving my childhood, I am a warrior in parenting my children, I am a warrior in my healing process. I can show people that it is possible to live a childhood such as mine and not stay a victim. I will show people that you can also live a childhood such as mine and grow up to live in peace. I don’t have to fight for every inch of healing. My healing is happening and I see a universe in which I can have complete healing. I have the courage to face that which I have not yet and I have support to do that. I have within me what I need to heal and I have guides to help me on the path to healing. I accept what happened to me and I accept the pain that comes with healing from what happened to me. I accept that the journey is long and hard, but also sometimes beautiful. I was chosen to parent my children because I can do it. It is hard. It is frustrating. It is joyful. I’ve done harder things and I am here to tell the story. And so it will be with parenting my children. I don’t know where the journey will take me, but I can climb mountains and I can walk through fire and I can rest in meadows and by streams.
Lately, I’ve been dealing with an onslaught of nightmares and flashbacks. They do relate to a certain period in my life. I’ve been reluctant to really look at that period due to wariness of what my therapist will think and what my body’s reaction will be and if it’s overdoing it to continue talking this time in my life. I really haven’t talked about it except to relay a couple of incidences. I experience total revulsion when thinking about the contents of these nightmares and flashbacks, and I’m realizing that some of my apprehension comes from thinking that my therapist will experience the same revulsion and maybe cannot handle it. She has handled anything else that I have spoken of, but I’m realizing that is a primary fear of mine that people will find me as revolting as I think I am due to the things that happened to me. Ugh. That really doesn’t make much sense once I type it out. I’m not revolting. What was done to me was repugnant and detestable, but I am not. But, are these things too gross to be spoken of more deeply than glossing over them. I hope not. I can deal with these flashbacks and nightmares through my courage and my perseverance. I will deal with them and with the inner 14 year old who is putting them out there. And I will handle my inner 14 year old with compassion and gentleness.
