You’ve set intentions, meditated, you’ve created a vision board, you’ve embarked on the work required within, are you still wondering why your dreams are not manifesting?
Rest assured, that there is nothing wrong with you!
Recognize that going through ups and downs on your manifestation journey is entirely normal. Just like when we exercise or learn a new language or instrument, hitting a plateau is common. It’s merely a sign that you’re on the way.
Sometimes blocks appear as challenges on 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 might pop up in your learning experience:
I’m Not Worth It!
Considering that a vital part of manifesting is BELIEVING in something before it shows up, it’s clear that if you don’t feel worthy or deserving of what you want, you might just have a block.
You have to increase your self-worth to live a life of abundance.
Think about it, someone who doesn’t truly value themselves isn’t going to attract wonderful, abundant things. Instead, you drive a wedge between you and your desires. In turn, you emit energies that repel the things that you want.
There’s a way around this, though. Because you can work on increasing your feelings of self-worth.
Stop trying to please other people or look for 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 to your raw essence and bolster 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 can’t believe in your innate worthiness, you may not ever 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.
Stand 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 many 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 yearn for something, compare your life to someone else’s’ or beat yourself up internally for not yet achieving your dreams, you are vibrating at the frequency of lack.
The antidote? Gratitude.
The easiest way to shift that stagnant energy is by putting your focus back to 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 every single day. Think regularly on all the wonderful things in your life up until now.
Be grateful for everything, from the large to the small.
Be grateful every time your car starts and you’re able to pay for your weekly groceries.
Be grateful for the smiles of your neighbors and the sunlight in the morning.
Practice the habit of gratitude and soon it will be your default, even in times of stress.
Gratitude is like a great BIG YES to the Universe. Its energy is highly positive and attractive.
I Am Like This Because Of My External World
Another common block standing in the way of your abundance is the victim mindset. Any time that you feel like the world is treating you unfairly, that other people have it easier, and you are being punished by the Universe for some unknown reason, you keep abundance away from you. That’s not to say you may have a genuine grievance for whatever reason, but the fact is that you have to be responsible for your energy, no matter what.
Taking the reins of your life is so empowering. You have to 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 that you can control. When you do this, you are taking responsibility for your story. You can begin to rewrite your narrative in life whenever you desire!
What does that mean? If you desire more love, be more loving yourself.
If you want more riches, be more generous, and that could mean with compliments, words, loving gestures not just money.
If you want peace, be peaceful.
If you want happiness, be happy. It all starts with you.
If you yearn for forgiveness, practice forgiving.
Be the energy you wish to receive. Remember this and write it down. Return 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 this, it’s all within your power.
The key to your happiness is inside you.
