The Upside of the Downside

There is a great lesson to be learned when things do not go as planed. Not only is it good practice to learn resilience, but if you are paying attention, things that may seem to be wrong can be perfectly right.

Today was a great example of that for me. I was all excited that I had gotten another gig on the set on a film, but found out in the morning it was not a gig with pay. It was donated time for a picture with a cause. I was moved to take on the job. To top it off, it was like 6 hours late, but what the heck, it was for a good cause, so I stuck to my decision.

Well, on my way in I won 75$ at the casino, and had a good long talk with the casting agent, and was put on a list for future work in the industry. While I was there, another extra talent background actor and I got to talking. They are a life coach, and we had some very similar concepts of helping people, and it might work out into a longer term business association with other business adventures I am involved in.

The production I was invited to participate in has an award winning crew, and I will get credits in the film. Lots of upside to this day which initially could have been considered a downer. I mean waking up late to discover a delay, the down became an up. Found out I do not get paid today, but later that I will be getting credits for my resume. Running into a potential business associate from my home town. A long drive that got me 75$ at a casino. So today has been a great example of finding the upside to the downside.

Messes, Madness and Manfestation

Ok, so the world we live in is physical, and our conscious, as some say is spiritual, or at least the new studies in quantum physics suggest there is a sort of matrix which we live in. As I stated to my friends, I have made a decision to learn a bit about the film industry, and found myself emerged in the daily grind of a production.

This made me take a look at how a writer or director actually manifests their vision and tells a story through film. That clarity of vision is a prime example of manifestation in action. Now sure, a movie is just a video that tells a story, but wait, your life is a story. And similar to the writer and director, you have the power to actualize your vision of life, within life.

Now I know many people drift through life, not really putting their intention into #Manifesting their visions, and that is ok, but as of late, I have been putting my intention into manifesting my vision of life, and things have been happening, and happening quickly, and they are happening in a bigger and bigger way in my life, as I project my intention into my physical world. The things I am stating are becoming manifest in my life. From business opportunities and results, to complete life changes and shifts of perspective which has helped me realize that as long as I am willing to accept what I intend to manifest in my life, the universe will have my back, even if things do not go exactly as planed.

Just today I was considering some things, like doing this public speaking and what my larger purpose might be. I got word that my gig was delayed so I considered if I should stop at the casino on the way into Santa Barbara today. I was intent on manifesting a winning day so I stopped and played a bit of casino games. I projected and was ready to accept that I would win, and won 75$. Now that is not a ton of cash, but I only had 1 hour.

I walked into the casino, and straight to the table games. I was going to play roulette. After buying in, I placed 1$ on #13 (for luck), and just followed what one of the other players had bet, stating I would play with their numbers for luck. BANG, doubled my $ and then some. So I put my extra $ in my pocket, you know hit and run. Keeping some single dollars in my hand, with most of the hour left, I set out to play some slot machines. Bang... my 1 $ bill was a 10$ slip. That soon turned into a 50 $ slip.

So I checked my clock, and it was time to go. Now I have won at a casino before, and know that much of the things I #manifest in my life come from some sort of effort or work. This kind of freaked me out, that I projected that I would go into the casino for 1 hour, and walk out a winner, and it happened. So this is helping me to realize that my thoughts will become manifest as long as I am willing to accept what I project.
