Olympians Reveal Manifesting Skills
Watching the events themselves wouldn’t be nearly as compelling if we didn’t get to hear the back stories!
And if you’re like me, your ears perk up whenever you hear a hint of deliberate creation in the works.
For example, last night I heard Michael Phelps’ interview with Bob Costas after his final swim at the 2012 London Olympics:
I think a couple days into it I realized the first day that I was super tight like I just kept trying to be intense, and I guess after that I just started relaxing more. I started smiling more. And everything started falling into place. I didn’t feel that great in the water, but I just went out and raced as hard as I could and started smiling and enjoying it. – Michael Phelps
How’s that for “alignment and then”?! Way to get in your vortex, Michael!
(And congrats on your incredible career!)
Then did you hear this story from Chad Le Clos?
South African Le Clos shared in an interview that he had replayed over and over the call of Michael Phelps’ win in Beijing 2008 when Phelps made that last second surge on Milorad Cavic to steal the win for the gold.
Le Clos said he idolizes Phelps and what he’s accomplished in swimming, and he listened to the call of that race repeatedly – in seven different languages even!!
And then Le Clos did that very thing himself this year competing in the 200 meter butterfly! He made a strong late surge to barely out-touch Phelps and steal the gold from him in an event Phelps was expected to dominate.
How cool is that?! From a guy no one was really expecting anything spectacular from!
It speaks to how powerful focus and passion and scripting are.
And how about this? Ryan Lochte, visualizing the perfect race:
And we’ve seen the divers and gymnasts practicing their routines mentally with closed eyes before they step up to compete, rehearsing their success and prepping themselves for an excellent showing.
I’d love to hear your favorite stories of LOA at work with the athletes and their performances.
In the meantime, enjoy the games!
