We’ve all heard it — Mercury retrograde sucks.
The majority of people fear it and fear it. However, it can still manifest during this time.
Mercury is a planet in astrology that is related to knowledge, verbal exchange, travel, rational thoughts, and electronics.
Therefore, when the planet is retrograde, you may experience a decrease in these areas.
As they say, it’s too tempting to fall back into old habits.
It is also the time when communication goes wrong, leading to misunderstandings.
You will find things broken, travel plans delayed, things you lose, break ups, and schedules go. You may also find yourself easily frustrated.
Although Mercury Retrograde may feel like “upheaval,” it also brings many opportunities.
But you will have a change of heart (and mind!) when you manifest during this time.
In fact, you’ll be surprised at how much excitement this can bring to your life.
Sooner or later, you will notice that your feelings of fear towards Mercury retrograde will slowly dissolve and, next thing you know, you will embrace it with open arms.
Why Manifesting During Mercury Retrograde Is A Good Idea
Before we discuss the HOW, let’s first discuss why manifesting during this time is a good thing to do.
It Brings You Down
When you plan to manifest, all you can think about is getting to work.
And yes, it is so easy to get caught up in it and rush it.
But we all know that nothing really good comes out of anything rushed, right?
And that is exactly what is good about manifesting during Mercury retrograde.
It forces you to slow down. It’s simply because cosmic forces actually slow things down for you.
When you slow down, you become more aware of yourself and when you are in this state, you can concentrate on what is already in your life.
With this, you will improve yourself and you will be able to manifest better because you will be more aware.
Expose All Negative Triggers
As I mentioned, Mercury retrograde brings out triggers that make you doubt yourself.
This brings in challenging times. He lets the curtain fall to the ground; it reveals to you triggers that will make you feel bad, among other things.
Manifesting during this period means you have seen all these causes.
And that’s actually a good thing. You already know these causes and you are aware of them.
When you are aware of them, you will be able to come up with ways to work around them in a healthier way.
In fact, it will even give you more courage to charge ahead and that courage is crucial in manifesting.
You know you need it. And with all these causes exposed, you just got yourself a ticket to the success of the manifestation.
It pushes you to take big leaps
Mercury retrograde can send you rock bottom.
When you are going to be pushed off a cliff by the challenges that this time brings, it makes you think about taking that big leap. Do you skip or not?
During this time, the Universe taps into your subconscious mind to see if you know how to find your self-esteem amidst the challenges.
Yes, it’s a scary time, but when you get through it, you know you’ve achieved a major milestone in your life towards significant growth.
How to Manifest During Mercury Retrograde
Now that you know these reasons why Mercury retrograde is a good time for manifestation, it’s time to discuss the HOW.
The Law of Attraction
I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of this “law” and many of us are working with it.
When you are practicing this, it can become quite overwhelming because of the thousands of ways to do it.
But let me tell you something, you can still apply this (regardless of the strategy you know) during Mercury retrograde.
Simply put, the concept of the law of attraction is by focusing on the things we want to happen in our lives.
Eventually, it will, when we focus on it every day.
And when the law of attraction was introduced, it didn’t come with a disclaimer that you can only use it during certain times of the year.
With all the reasons I’ve listed above, it makes more sense to practice the law of attraction.
… and when you ask, be as specific as possible.
When sending your intentions out to the Universe during Mercury retrograde, remember to simply ask for what you want in your life and work your way from there.
ONLY. SIMPLY. ASK me.
Always remember, what you ask for, you shall receive. Just believe that it will come to you and it will.
Here’s the thing, when you believe something, it’s bound to come true.
And during Mercury Retrograde when emotions are running high (or worse, all over the place), it’s the perfect time to refocus and rethink.
As I said, it slows you down, which makes it the perfect time to reflect.
When you finish with that reflection, you will then have a clearer head to manifest what you really want from your life and that is valuable.
Don’t let Mercury retrograde superstitions get in your way.
You can manifest great things in your life despite this period.
Your life should not be on hold just because the planet is retrograde.
Use this time wisely to make better decisions.
If you really want something to happen in your life, nothing should stop you.
Treat Mercury retrograde as an advantage that will catapult you forward to greater heights.
Always remember that the Universe wants you to succeed.
You have everything you need if you just look hard.
Open your eyes and use this time to see everything you need to see.
Stop imagining the next worst thing you know, you will notice an improvement in your life.
Think about it this way, if you fear Mercury retrograde, it will only make things worse for you and there is the fact that you are already dreaming of it, so you might as well let it be and focus only on the positive things.
You’ve already thought about all the possible bad things that could happen, haven’t you?
And there is nothing to think now.
So, go ahead, be optimistic and start manifesting!
Still feeling scared? Don’t be!
