Manifesting the Simple Things with Divine Assistance by Takara


This article is the perfect example of getting divine assistance for manifesting whatever you need or desire.
I was on my way to Denver to teach a workshop and had a flat tire. I had driven up through Taos and continued on through Northern New Mexico. Then I headed east through southern Colorado. I'd just entered the only town I'd seen in over an hour and began hearing an awful noise emanating from my car.

"Great!"


I pulled into a 7-eleven and got out to assess the situation. As I walked around the car, I thought I would find the tailpipe dragging. Instead I found the back right tire, flat as a pancake.
As I entered the 7-eleven parking lot I noticed a Sheriff's car pulling in as well. I saw the Sheriff heading inside for a refill on his coffee. I told him my dilemma and asked if he could suggest a place that might help me out. We went into the store and he had the people behind the counter call several service stations.
It was nanoseconds after 5 p.m. on a Friday night in a little town that doesn't even have a McDonalds. None of the service stations were answering because they had all gone home for the night.
There was probably smoke coming out of my ears from the wheels turning so fast in my head trying to figure out why this situation was occurring and what I should do about it. Was it a lesson? Was I supposed to be delayed for some reason?
I was completely in observer mode. I knew that if I allowed myself to become upset by what looked like a very dismal situation, my personality would most likely be very unhappy with the outcome. In order to experience manifesting with divine assistance you have to remain calm and at peace - trusting that all is well in the world.
I only had one of those little donut tires as a spare and I was still over two hours from my destination. It was at least an hour to Colorado Springs where there might be assistance still available. But that meant I would have to have the car towed that far.
What other options were there?
Was I supposed to find a hotel and stay there for the night and get a new tire in the morning? That idea didn't appeal to me.
As the call ended to the last service station listed in the phone book with no one answering there either, I said to myself (and the Universe), "I need help here."
In less than one minute my "knight in shining armor" entered the store. He had on his uniform from the service station where he'd worked all day. It, like all the rest, was already closed of course. The people behind the counter, who had been making phone calls for me, explained my situation.
He called his boss. Then he changed my tire to the little donut and had me follow him to the service station where he worked.
His boss, his bosses' wife and their little girl met us there. They opened the shop for me and found a used tire just the right size. As the "knight" was putting on the tire, I asked the service station owner to prepare the bill so we could handle the money transaction and they could all go home.
He said, "That will be $20 even."
I just looked at him as if he was a Martian or something. In my mind I was thinking, "You must be kidding. It can't be $20. Tires don't cost $20. They cost $50 or $70. I've got my credit card right here. You guys opened up your shop for me. How can you possibly only charge me $20?" I was amazed to say the least.
I paid the $20 with a smile and gave a tip to "the knight." Then I headed off to Denver with a great story to tell my manifesting class the next day.
What was significant about the story?
What lessons did it offer?
In order to manifest with divine assistance you must:
1) Be very clear about what it is that you desire.
2) Feel what it feels like to have it.
3) Allow it into your experience - In other words, remain focused on your desire for it and NOT focused on the fact that you don't have it yet.
4) Have no attachment to "how" it will occur.
When I told the Universe what I wanted, it was amazingly clear. I felt with all certainty exactly what I needed, that I needed it now, and I never even considered that it might not be granted. I fully expected to receive what I asked for. I didn't say, "I'd like this if it pleases you." Nor did I say, "If it's in my highest and best interest I would appreciate some assistance."
It was all about the feeling. I never once allowed myself to fear anything about what I was facing. And I also didn't feel sorry for myself or feel frustrated with the way things were going. If I had any expectations about arriving at a certain time, I let them go as soon as I heard the noise. I moved instantly into "flowing with the moment" and seeing what the moment would bring.
The experience was exhilarating. I met all sorts of wonderful people who went out of their way to help a damsel in distress - the Sheriff, the 7-eleven personnel, the "knight," and the service station owner and his family.
In every life situation you have a choice. You can choose to experience life as a blessing and manifest with divine assistance. Or you can choose frustration, anger, or feeling like a victim. How you experience life is entirely up to you.
I trust that the next time you need some divine assistance, you will remember this story and it will help you in manifesting exactly what you need.
Blessings,
Takara

First of all, I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Any story that begins with "Denver" is right up my alley (I'm a Denver girl) and this is no exception! Your story was easy to read (I must admit I love to read but I made the mistake of taking a speed-reading class many years ago and I have lost a lot of the enjoyment of reading every word). None of this, of course, has anything to do with the purpose of your story!! Your story is about Divine Intervention, and more importantly how one asks for and deals with it should it occur. I would think we have all experienced this phenomenon, even if we didn't know it at the time. I venture to say when Pamela died in the hospital 6 years ago and I was forced to step up to the plate to not only run the business but also our 2 homes, there was little to no thinking on my part, only some type of divine assistance that led me through life and held my hand as I made decisions for her. I also believe every morning when I wake up and every evening when I fall asleep, there is a Divine Giver watching over me. Some people call it a "higher power", some people call Him "God". Whatever works, I believe there is a force stronger than I am that helps me through the good and the bad (aka breaking the glass at a Jewish wedding) and I am thankful for His/Her existence every day.

Such a lovely and inspirational post! Thanks for sharing your story and I know, now I definitely will remember this the next time I need some divine assistance... AND to be very clear on what it is that I desire.

Great post. I am happy your tire was fixed so that you could continue your trip. It is not always easy to keep our minds on the right track. When things happen we get discouraged and without realizing it bring more negativity into our lives. Great reminder and example you have given us showing how our thoughts truly do bring things to us and that we need to keep them positive even when we are in a difficult situation.

Denver is definitely a lovely place. I have some good friends there and I used to visit every year for the INATS convention - international new age trade show. I have an endless array of stories about Divine intervention. Your sounds pretty powerful. When we seek, we find for sure.

Clarity and confidence are amazing things. Thanks for stopping by.

Meryl - I feel so blessed that I was inspired to learn meditation so long ago. Because of it, I can stay in a centered, balanced place despite the mayhem going on around me. It helps me to be level headed and clear in even the most trying of times. Good stuff!

Have no attachment to "how" it will occur. That's the one I've experienced over and over as I seek God for answers. It's not always as we picture the outcome to be, that's for sure. The Master of the Universe knows better than me the method of delivery! :)

Amen to that! Thanks for visiting!
