|Someone's great design ...|
I decided then and there to visualize a silver ring with an oval cabochon-cut lapis stone. I had a hard time imagining the setting, though. Today I would picture a simple braid or twisted setting, but at that moment I was too impatient to look at settings (no internet, in The Bad Old Days), so I stayed with my original conception. I pictured it as fitting perfectly, being affordable, and imagined it a couple of times a day, as prescribed in the book, for a few weeks. Then I forgot all about it.
Perhaps a month later, I was invited to attend the Houston Gem Show. I strolled around looking at many lovely handmade jewelry pieces, loose stones, crystals and so on. Then across a very wide aisle (maybe 30 feet), I was drawn to a bank of many colored sparkly rings, set in cheap gold. That sort of jewelry is not my style, but I felt I had to go over and look. Lo and behold, in the middle of one of the rows of sparklies was a silver ring with an oval cabochon-cut lapis! The setting was clumsy, just like my visualization, and it fit perfectly. It cost $26, and I had $30. That left just enough for a lunch taco and a drink!
The point is that manifesting something you can picture is simple. The deciding part is hard! Also, I have found over the years, that when I cannot picture what I want, or if the image wobbles and fades, it is not meant to be.
