Continued from yesterday…
The other block that might come up when trying to manifest is desperation. If we really need the money for the bills, and we are begging and obsessing, we are pushing away the very thing we desire most.
When we can be grateful for what we have, the bills we can pay, the job that gives us income for the things we need, the creative opportunities to find more abundance—maybe in ways we haven’t even thought of—suddenly doors open where there were walls. When we quiet our minds and let go of the fear, we open our lives to ideas and the power to create along with the universe.
Inspired action is the best manifesting practice there is!
On that note though, fear is also a very powerful manifesting practice that some of us are all too familiar with. Just as we can manifest blessings into our lives, we can also manifest repeated struggles as well.
I know this is a sensitive topic for many, and trust me, no one knows this better than me. 2018 was one of the toughest years on record for me, and it nearly broke me. I was in this negative spiral of only seeing the problems. I was in such anxiety, fear and depression, I could not see my way out of it. I manifested more and
more of the same thing.
Something I am really focusing on changing currently is the idea I push the good away. I manifest quite easily and powerfully, so I will get on a roll of really awesome amazing things happening in my life, and because somewhere deep down, I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop, for the good stuff to be taken away,
I sabotage it so I feel I have more control over it. I literally manifest problems subconsciously, so my programming can say, “See? I told you it wouldn’t work out.”
Wow, right? Who would do that kind of thing? People do it subconsciously all the time, often not realizing that’s what they’re doing. And it’s not something to beat yourself up for. It’s easy for me to be like, I KNOW this stuff, I TEACH this stuff, why can’t I
just GET IT?? I have people around me who affirm those sentiments and it breaks my heart, while showing me, again, the basis of what I believe.
Manifesting and personal development aren’t for the faint of heart. There are so many uplifting stories, articles, poems in this book that will show you all the benefits of alignment and a successful life.
I wanted to make sure to include this very important topic though, as I see it both with myself and my clients – the struggle of feeling less than, because we just can’t get what we want and work so hard for.
PLEASE DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP. It is so very natural to fall out of manifesting alignment because our prehistoric lizard brain wants us to stay comfortable, not challenge the status quo and when it perceives any sort of danger, it lights up the fight or flight areas of our brains and sabotage kicks in.
But here’s the good news, it doesn’t have to be that way. Once you become aware, like you are now, you can see it for what it is. ONLY LOVE IS REAL. Fear, doubt, worry, anger, resentment, anxiety … don’t believe any of it. Unless, of course, a t-rex is chasing you down, then you should believe that and run!
When you can become aware of being in a negative state, and then pause, reflect, and say, “thank you fear for trying to protect me, but I’ve got this and we are safe,” and continue to challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone and grow, you will bust through all limitations and feel a sense of accomplishment that will grow your momentum and you can build upon each new success.
That doesn’t mean the old programming won’t try to rear its ugly head again. But you will have tools and proven success under your belt, so if you get knocked off, it will be easier to get back up and
remember where you left off.
You were not meant to live a life of lack and limitation. You were meant to shine and share your gifts with the world. The world needs that unique thing that only you have.
Sure, there are many, many books written on motivation, momentum
and manifesting, but as you will see, contained in these pages are numerous voices—each one equally important—and each one giving a nugget or perspective that’s different from the next. Something will resonate with the stories each person has shared, and that is why you need to tell your story too, put your voice, your talents, your special viewpoints out into the world. We need your perspectives, too. Manifest the life you deserve, and enjoy every moment!
