You’ve set intentions, meditated, created a vision board, embarked on the necessary work within, still wondering why your dreams aren’t manifesting?
Be sure, that there is nothing wrong with you!
Recognize that going through ups and downs on your manifestation journey is completely normal. Just like when we exercise or learn a new language or instrument, hitting a plateau is common. It’s just a sign that you’re on the way.
Sometimes blocks appear as challenges in our life journey, the best thing to do is to see them as opportunities for you to adjust your energetic alignment and get more in tune with your soul.
Let’s take a look at three common blocks that may come up in your learning experience:
I’m Not Good!
Considering that a vital part of manifesting is BELIEVING in something before it manifests, it’s clear that if you don’t feel worthy or deserving of what you want, you might just have a block.
You must increase your self-esteem to live a life of abundance.
Think about it, someone who doesn’t really value himself will not attract wonderful and abundant things. Instead, it drives a wedge between you and your desires. In turn, it emits energies that repel the things it wants.
There is a way around this, though. Because you can work to increase your feelings of self-worth.
Stop trying to please other people or seek validation. Decide to follow your heart and listen to your inner guidance. Meditation is an excellent way to boost your self-esteem because in that quiet contemplation you connect with your raw essence and strengthen your sense of self.
Make lists of your positive aspects every day. Make the conscious choice to replace negative self-talk with kind and loving words.
Repeat the affirmation “I am Enough,” every single day.
Repeat it until you start to believe it.
Your relationship with yourself is first and foremost the most important relationship you will ever have. If you cannot believe in your innate worthiness, you may never get to the place where you live a life of true abundance. It’s not about bragging or vanity, it’s about a deep, quiet, and powerful sense of self. It’s about being aware that you have something great to offer the world.
Sit in that power of yours every day and watch your confidence and feelings of self-worth increase.
I don’t have…
This is another huge block for most of us. No matter how hard you try to focus on what you desire, you may not realize how much of your energy is still resonating with the feeling of lack. Every time you long for something, compare your life to someone else’s or beat yourself up internally for not yet achieving your dreams, you are vibrating with the frequency of lack.
The antidote? Gratitude.
The easiest way to shift that stagnant energy is by putting your focus back on the things that are present in your life.
Some of the best ways to do them are:
Make lists of the things in your life that you are grateful for each day. Think regularly about all the wonderful things in your life so far.
Be grateful for everything, from the big to the small.
Be grateful every time you start your car and pay for your weekly groceries.
Be grateful for the smiles of your neighbors and the morning sunlight.
Practice the habit of gratitude and it will soon be your default, even in times of stress.
Gratitude is like a big BIG YES to the Universe. Her energy is very positive and attractive.
I’m Like This Because Of My External World
Another common block that gets in the way of your abundance is the victim mentality. Every time you feel that the world is treating you unfairly, that other people have it easier, and that you are being punished by the Universe for some unknown reason, you keep abundance away from you. This does not mean that you can have a genuine complaint for any reason, but the fact is that you must be responsible for your energy, whatever it is.
Taking control of your life is so empowering. You must take responsibility for everything that happens in your life, the good and the bad.
You have to show up for yourself and take control of the things you can control. When you do this, you are taking responsibility for your story. You can start rewriting your narrative in life whenever you like!
What does it mean? If you want more love, love yourself more.
If you want more wealth, be more generous, and this can mean with compliments, words, gestures of love not just money.
If you want peace, be peaceful.
If you want happiness, be happy. It all starts with you.
If you long for forgiveness, practice forgiveness.
Be the energy you wish to receive. Remember this and write it down. Come back to it again and again like a mantra for your day, every day. It all starts with you.
If these three problem areas sound familiar to you, make the decision today to shift your energy so that abundance can flow freely in your life.
You don’t need anything special to do it, it’s all in your power.
The key to your happiness lies within you.
