Understanding the Nature of Need and Supply
by Rev. Michaele de Cygne
Need is evidence of Source/Spirit/God delivering new supply. Source gives us supply, so we don’t have to strive to manifest it; so we have more time to commune and hang out with Source.
When we are born, we are connected to Source and we are connected to Supply. Our conditioning soon establishes ego in our minds, separating us from Source, like a thin membrane breaking the circuit allowing Supply to flow unhindered into our lives. Our parents, medical persons, the planet… become our sources for the fulfillment of our needs instead of The Source. Consequently, we are conditioned to focus on the “need” factor of the need/supply equation, to meet the challenge head on, to take the bull by the horns and handle it. We are taught to take responsibility for our affairs, to analyze, break things down to essentials and pragmatically arrive at solutions to meet our myriad needs, using our inner and/or external resources. Thus, for those who just go with the human flow, the needs, or rather our focus on need is the issue. The Truth is that need and supply are always concurrent; Source supplies our needs before they manifest, so we can just focus on our relationship with Source rather than on finding fulfillment for our needs outside of Source. The question is, “How do we get Supply to manifest in our lives?”
As co-Creators with Source, we create space for Source to manifest Supply by giving thanks for it. To give thanks for it consciously acknowledges Source’s provision of it in or lives, thus effecting an unconscious acknowledgment of God’s Love for us. That unconscious acknowledgment releases Love into the conditions harboring the need, which in turn, establishes hope in the context of that need. Like pushing something away from you that’s all up in your face, that simple act of establishing hope allows us to step back from the stress of the pressing need to experience the awareness of the flow of the substance of God’s supply into our lives. That substance is faith.* Even the smallest iota of faith contains all the potential of the Big Bang, more than enough to move the mountain of need out of our lives as it displaces the mountain with itself. The more we give thanks for supply, before we fully experience it, the more Love and hope create space for Divine substance/faith to expand into and within our consciousness, into and within our conditions, into and within our circumstances; into and displacing our need. The more that Substance expands, the slower its vibration becomes and it shifts from a mental perception to a psychic knowing to a physically evident form.** The supply is given to fill a certain form; that form may appear differently than how we idealize the fulfillment of the need associated with it, in our limited perception of the myriad aspects of the need (that are indirectly related to us).*** However, all we must to do is to keep giving thanks for the supply until its perfect form is fully concretized.
Three things abide, faith, hope and love; but the greatest of these is Love, because Love creates space for hope, which facilitates the flow of faith, which manifests miracles.
Looking at the equation from a different perspective, as we give thanks for supply, we first acknowledge the perfect balance of the Universe, therefore the fundamentally perfect balance of our lives. Being inherent to the offering, that acknowledgment relaxes our thoughts, thus our psyches, (our emotions chill), we breathe more deeply, our muscles relax and tension flows out of them allowing more oxygen to our brains, which in turn enables us to think more clearly to perceive the right steps to take toward [participating in] realizing solutions for our challenges. Thus, the “attitude of gratitude” enables us to resolve every challenge more quickly and more effectively as it attracts every thought, idea, contact and resource we require to meet each challenge.
Rampant need around these days, isn’t there? How many news broadcasts are we hearing like this — “We’re giving thanks that the North Korean government has attained a collective Consciousness that enables it to perceive and acknowledge the love and appreciation the rest of the world has for its people, its talents and its culture. As a result, the Pyongyang no longer feels threatened and has ceased its fearful military posturing to focus on permanently developing healthy, mutually prosperousÂ relationships with its neighbors and the rest of the world” — ? Or — “We give thanks that food producers have realized that the cost of packing food with unnatural chemicals drastically reduces their profits as a consequence of requiring their customers to divert $$ that could be spent on their products to resolve their medical needs arising from consuming them. Thus, they have decided to universally eliminate such ingredients, in favor of naturally occurring ingredients producing like effects. While the cost of doing so is greater per company, the increased profits from increased consumption of their goods is keeping their books in the black, with profits increasing.” — ? How about — “We give thanks that the collective advances of the 20th century are now yielding new understandings of interpersonal, interstate and international commerce that are enabling rapid development of radically new, easily implementable and universally satisfying solutions to the global economic crisis!!” — ?
Ok, I’m taking a moment to interpose smidgins of pacifism and activism to make a point, nonetheless, while I’m addressing the possibility of resolving mass issues in this manner, the point is that we enable positive things to replace negative conditions by giving thanks for the expression of supply that displaces those conditions. Doing so in that manner is exponentially more effective and less stressful than furrowing our brows with worry about how to resolve those conditions. As we focus on need, we attract conditions validating those needs. As we focus on supply, we create conditions to express substance that vanishes need, thus validating Supply. As we choose to focus, so we experience.
Replace the habit of harping about need with that of heralding supply. For 3 consecutive weeks, minimum, make it a point to mentally verbalize your needs as expressions of thanksgiving for the supply that fulfills and displaces them. Every time you find yourself feeling the weight of worry, of “How do I get the stuff I require to fill this need???”, flip it around, invert it (like turning over a playing card) and give thanks for the flow of the supply that fills that need.
A mental or oral statement as simple as “Thanks God for fulfilling this need right now” starts the substance flowing.
Thank God for your financial circumstances that always and reliably provide you with so much money you always have at least twice as much as you need, (instead of saying something like “Thank you God for sending me $2000.00 [or a new Ferrari] this month.”)
Thank God that your circumstances enable you to provide your loved ones with the resources they require for their optimum well being, that It knows exactly what resources you will require to meet this month’s needs and that, as you hang with it and focus on It, It is ordering your footsteps and those of others to lead you to each other, so all the exchanges that need to happen to manifest those resources just naturally and seamlessly occur and all your bills are paid before the final deadlines.
Thank Source for the new and deeply fulfilling area of service it has prepared for you as your new vocation or career, (replacing the one the Universe recently facilitated your departure from), or the next level of your present one.
Thank Source that Its flow of Supply to you is unhindered, more and more each day, enabling that Supply to expand in your circumstances (and concretize) more rapidly.
Thank Spirit that It knows every need before it arises and works proactively to provide for it, in full measure.
[In your personal conversation with Source/Spirit/God] “Thank You for the flow of Your Supply into all my needs, above and beyond the circumstances that made those needs evident!”
Thank God for this understanding that allows you to have more space and time to simply hang with Him as a result of not having your mind so preoccupied with how to do His job.
All who walk with and in Spirit, remember 2 Timothy 1:7: “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” With the power of Love and a sound mind, give thanks for (and to receive) all the good the Divine has established for you, that you may be free to live in abundant prosperity and peace of mind, psyche and body.
* Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [Hebrews 11:1]
** Manifestation occurs first in the ultra high vibrations of thought, then, as they are held and accumulate, in the denser astral dimensions of our experience which, if held there long enough and with enough focused thought energy/force, will manifest the vibrations into physical form; all reality, just different expressions, like clouds, water and ice.
*** Source’s thoughts are higher and deeper than our thoughts, Its ways higher and deeper than our ways. We can trust Its provisions are always spot on, perfect. [Isaiah 55:9]
