Here’s a story to tuck in your back pocket the next time you head to the dentist. I’ve pondered on it for a few weeks, to be certain, before I mentioned it here, of what happened.
We are powerful co-creators who often find ourselves in circumstances that we’d very much rather avoid. This puzzles us. The law of attraction makes sense. It works for some of the time for some of us, yet not every time. Why?
This story begins with a dentist. I found myself in this specialists office, not knowing if I’d need oral surgery or not. Frankly, I almost canceled. Yet I practice kinesiology regularly now, and kept getting “yes”. So I went.
The dentist was an older gentleman, who told me that I was his final patient that Friday, and he’d like to finish quickly and get home to play golf. He asked me what I wanted. I told him I’d very much like for him to play golf that afternoon as well, but this pesky tooth needed an answer first. Would I need this work done or could we all start the weekend?
A few moments and x-rays later I had my answer. Like it or not, we’d be there awhile.
This was so severe, he told me, that he’d more than likely need at least two visits to complete it successfully. He’d never get this done today. So they gave me novocaine and left. This is the part that you may want to tuck in your pocket.
It was a 3 hour procedure, and I needed more novocaine before it was completed. From the moment they first left me, I went into a sort of meditative state. I reached out to everyone I know for healing/creative support. I envisioned a scene in which the highest and best outcome took place, for everyone in that office.
I saw his hand steady and his judgment sharp. I saw him feel equipped and able to do what was necessary. I viewed all of us going home feeling satisfied and accomplished. I focused continually on this. I saw this happen. I saw it over and over and over.
I could no longer ask for it to be avoided, so I created instead the best outcome. I pulled us all into it, the higher selves of each of us participating that day. I envisioned happiness, success and a healthy mouth for me.
It was pretty grueling for him and his assistant. I never let up with my focus. When he was done, he said it was a success, much more so than he expected. I didn’t need another visit. He said that this is why he got cases like mine, the impossible ones. He was proud and showed me the x-rays so that I would understand what a mess it had been.
I was given a steroid and a narcotic for pain & inflammation – enough for a week.
What was amazing is that I felt the healing as he finished. I felt it move through my entire body before I got out of that chair. Once home, I never took either medication.
This tells me that we all hold the power to control and manage events in our lives, and that we can include everyone involved as we do. I was an active participant in that surgery and I believe my intent for all of us colored how it went; colored it beautifully. I was specific and focused. I believed it was possible.
I know that we only create what we believe is possible. All of my intentions that Friday afternoon were possibilities – each of them equal to any other. It could have gone well, or not. We could have all been exhausted and crabby when it was over, or not. There could have been pain later, or not. These are everyday possibilities that we each face.
It is our belief in what’s possible that determines the outcome. It is our focus that changes the possible to the probable and the probable to what happens.
Magic is a full time endeavor. It does not just occur in dentist chairs or extreme circumstances. It is one of the functions and conclusions of our vision for our life. It is a tool.
Until now we’ve possibly blamed lousy outcomes on forces beyond our control. I cannot hold that as truth any longer. I know that when I’m “on it”, I have great days, really good parking spots and painless dental visits. It’s all true.
What’s not so simple about it is maintaining our focus. The actions themselves are thoughts and desires and wishes and intentions we all have. This is why it can be so frustrating for us. It’s simple to do, yet not simply done. Does that make sense?
The laser focus of immediate oral surgery sharpened my intent and maintained my belief and vision. This resulted in the effect I created, yet it was not what was expected by the “professionals” (who knew better than I did, supposedly). The staff was surprised. Magic.
So, that’s my story. As we practice these skills, let’s share them with each other in the comments section or emails or any social media platform.
We are all creative Maestros, conducting our own lives.
We are the Ones. We have anchored the light. It is done.
With so much love,
