The Path of Least Resistance

Have you ever noticed, how the things you want the most in life, are often the things most difficult to attain. They are normally big things, maybe huge life changing circumstances that need to shift.

It might take weeks, months or years to receive and achieve them…

…then other times, you might instantly attract something you want.   Like a new coat or a parking space showing up in a busy car park.

Why do you think this is?  Have you noticed how some things manifest really easy and that when this happens it’s because you aren’t as vested in the thing or outcome you want to achieve.

Do you think there might be a correlation between resistance and what you can receive?

You might be able to think of times in your life where things have just shown up almost by magic.

There are a few poignant times in my life when this happened. I have told this story many times but I’ll tell it again here.

When I was 4 years old, on holiday at the Seaside with my Mum and Dad. After the end of a long day, my Dad was tucking me into bed when I said to him.

Path of Least Resistance


” Daddy, I want to jump on a Red Bouncy Castle all on my own”


“I’m not sure we’ll find one, just for you, sweetheart, they are always so busy. Plus we are going home tomorrow, I’m not sure we’ll have time, Goodnight Elizabeth.”

“We will daddy, I know it”.



That night I remember closing my eyes so tight and willing and believing in a great big red bouncy castle. I believed beyond all doubt that it existed and that it would appear the very next day.

The next morning I awoke with the same conviction. I just knew deep down, that my dream would come true.

My next memory of this holiday was when we were on our way home.

My Dad, who is always one for finding short cuts (or long cuts) when traveling anyway, had decided to take a scenic route home.

I remember being sat in my child seat, looking out of the window, still dreaming of the ‘lonely’ red bouncy castle.

We past fields and hedges of winding country road, after winding country road.  I still to this day don’t believe my Dad actually knew where he was, or why he was taking this particular route. (Perhaps something greater than him was guiding us home)

Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something in the distance. It was Red just popping over the fields in the distance.

“Daddy” I said

“Look, a Red Bouncy Castle”

My Dad, still eyes fixed on the winding roads ahead didn’t move his head. My Mum, looked out of her passenger side window of the car, casting her gaze across the fields and there in the distance she SAW it.

“John, she’s right, there’s a red bouncy castle.”

At the next juncture, my Dad turned the car down a little lane and we approached the entrance to a Farmers field.

The grass, was flat like there had been some kind of summer fair. But there were no other cars in sight, nor people. Just one man sat on a fold up chair, in front of the biggest red bouncy castle, I could ever have imagined!  (Except I had)

I remember the excitement in my chest. My heart was pounding. I don’t think my Dad could comprehend what we had found. Some conversation took place between my father and the man on the field as I eagerly held tightly to my Mum’s hand.

Then my Dad gave me a nod and a smile, which signalled to me,  that It was ok to go on the bouncy castle.

I remember bouncing and, jumping and just loving the freedom of being able to jump without others and big kids and people bumping into me and pushing me over.

I had manifested my vision, with so little resistance. I had experienced the power of the Universe and what I now know to be the Law of Attraction.

I had done it!

This will always be one of my favourite memories, it means so much to me on so many different levels every time I recount it.

So I’ll end by saying, thank you for letting me share my first ‘least resistant’ path of manifestation with you.

If you feel able to, I would love to hear any similar stories you might have experienced at a young age, or later on in life. I’d also love to know your thoughts on living a life of less resistance.  Please leave your comments in the comments section below and share with your friends and followers if you think they would enjoy hearing this story too.
