Why Manifesting, Positive Thinking, and Affirmations may not work
We all have desires
Each of us has a dream, some of us many dreams
Most of us seek clarity, connection, and a life of abundance
People continuously strive to obtain a new reality, consuming countless courses and classes on manifestation, co-creating reality and The Law of Attraction. Interestingly enough, most people are stuck repeating the same patterns and habits.
Holding space as clients observe repeating patterns and cycles is my daily work. Incredibly talented individuals are transforming countless lives and still, they don’t attract clients or money.
Healers, artists, speakers, and teachers changing the world, opening hearts and minds while struggling with personal value. Therefore they not charging accordingly.
With all of this talk on The Law of attraction, you’d think there’d be a lot more multimillionaires roaming the planet.
The Law of Attraction is not the only universal law, and it takes more than creating a vision board and focusing on positive change.
The missing link is feeling, actualizing, retraining the brain, and the rest of the nervous system.
It doesn’t matter how much you desire something in your life, you will always attract who you are, not what you want.
The key is to re-create who you are at the level of the mind, the subconscious mind, and energy system. To anchor in your new desire it takes discipline and consistency.
The universe will invite you to trust all that cannot be seen with the eyes and to believe in an inner vision before it becomes an outer reality.
Your soul will help you discover latent plans and hidden pathways, opening you up to receive all that you seek.
Let go of the “how” and focus on the feeling while the universe in harmony with your higher-self creates and begins attracting your reality based upon your feelings.
As you seek an intention or desire, it would serve you to FIRST become what you seek.
This is where people get stuck; wanting something new, they don’t quite know how it feels. Try to imagine a color, texture, or object you have never seen or felt before. Where would you begin? Usually, the mind conjures up some possibilities and then you begin feeling what they could be.
We get stuck here because as we begin to generate the possible feelings of the desire, we feel like a fraud because it is not real yet.
We are often told not to pretend or imagine, this makes it difficult to experience gratitude for an un-manifest desire as the internal critic becomes activated, hijacking the entire situation.
Then we go back to how we really feel and what we really believe at the level of the subconscious mind vs how we wish to feel when accomplishing the goal or attracting the desire.
Cycling and spinning in patterns of not being or feeling good enough energetically validates the subconscious limiting beliefs. This process creates a vibration to guide the universe to deliver and attract more energy connections. The universe then sends examples of not being or feeling good enough as long as it stays a root beleif or feeling.
Then they say, SEE it doesn’t work for me!
An example is positive affirmations; prosperity is a great one since it’s something people want more of. People say things link, “I am prosperous”, as they try to create more of it in our lives.
This makes people more aware of lack as the mind kicks in to highlight the lack of truth in the positive statement you are trying to believe in. Some people even feel worse, enabling the cycle and creating more lack.
Relaxed states of consciousness combined with affirmations ignites the possible positive impact they have with intercepting subconscious limitations.
I love affirmations and will utilize them with people after we’ve done a certain amount of work. This creates a nurturing environment for the affirmation to effectively do what it’s designed to do.
When used correctly, affirmations plant a positive seed within the subconscious mind to bloom, grow, and thrive into something magnificent.
Anyone can utilize affirmations, and it’s not necessary to have a positive mindset first. Especially since they are used to shift energy. It is helpful thought to check in on how you feel as you say the words out loud.
Dedicating time, energy and consistency to consciously creating is a wonderful formula. This encourages the brain to rewire itself to view reality differently. You then open to possibility and anchor desires into your energy field.
It’s a co-creative partnership with spirit, and unconscious patterns block you from achieving goals. Gratitude shifts underlying energy as you re-create new experiences in the nervous system.
I personally love (EFT) emotional freedom technique for this reason. It works with the subconscious mind and the nervous system to reprogram the brain and retrain the mind. This creates space and safety for you to attract everything you focus on.
Here is a free video I created to get you started with Emotional Freedom Technique
