In the every day world as we know it, we exchange money for goods and services we need. Thinking about how this works also can help me understand how the universe works with regard to manifesting what it is that we want.

It could be said that the currency of the universe is our words, because we get what we talk about, which is why it is very important to speak about those things we appreciate and are grateful for in our lives. However, we don’t have to speak words for the universe to respond to that and interpret that as our desire. Our thoughts by themselves are enough to dip into the creative juices of the universe and activate it to send what we have thought about to us.

We all use the same currency whether we know it or not. Our thoughts are the currency of the universe, and it begins to send to us what we think about.

In the every day world as we know it, we often order something – we pay for it; then it is shipped to us. It is also the same with our thoughts. We send our thought as the payment and the universe begins to send that thing that we thought about to us. Not only is it sending it, it is also already ours. We have already paid for it with our thoughts. All we have to do when it comes is open the door and bring it in, or let it in.

Understanding that it is already mine when I pay with my thoughts has increased my faith, thereby putting me at the place of expecting and readiness to let it in when what I’ve ordered comes! Sometimes what we order comes within a few seconds. That’s why I appreciate the ‘mental diet’ – I like more of the things that arrive moment by moment! Some of the things are being ‘shipped’ from farther away so it is taking a bit longer for them to arrive, and that’s ok. They’re still mine.
