Are you having problems trying to manifest something into your life?
Maybe you put in the effort, did the visualizations and then…nothing.
The problem might not be the Law of Attraction method you’re using. It might actually be what you’re asking for.
You could take all the classes, read all the books and work with all the manifesting teachers you want to but there are certain things in life that cannot be changed.
From my perspective, this fallacy is bordering on an epidemic in the New Thought community: you can have whatever you want, as long as you work on shifting your thoughts around it.
While that is true, it’s also not the entire truth. Manifesting cannot be used as an escape mechanism from your own life. This is a form of spiritual bypass: trying to get the results without doing the work.
If you’re avoiding dealing with something or outright attempting outrun something, the Law of Attraction is not going to be able to help you.
Sorry but it’s impossible to just magic away the ickier parts of your life!
For example, if you’re so freaked out by your own financial situation that you decide to try to manifest $100,000, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll find success.
In the end, you’re still running away from money by attempting to manifest a whole lot of it.
Your real attitude towards money is still fear-based. You haven’t learned how to love or respect money. And when you’re in that fear state, you can’t also cultivate a loving and playful attitude towards manifesting more of it. So it should be no surprise that your manifesting efforts are coming up short.
Avoidance is just a trick we use to keep ourselves small.
Most “negative” experiences in our reality are here to teach us a lesson. In order to rise up and move past them, we need to take a cold long look at those problems and start to address them head-on.
We do all possess the power to transform our life. But part of that involves becoming accountable for where we’re at currently.
That means if you’re having money issues you have to take real steps towards addressing those issues, rather than just attempting to run further away from them.
Those lessons are here for a reason! You created them and you’re the only one with the power to transmute and shift them.
And that cannot happen just by setting an intention and thinking positive.
Besides, the longer you avoid, run away or ignore them, the more time you’ll waste feeling stuck and powerless.
The Law of Attraction is just another tool to help you move forward in life. It’s only as powerful as you are.
Remember: you cannot fake your own energy. And the Universe possesses the world’s most accurate BS-ometer. ????
That’s why it’s totally pointless to stick your head in the sand or to pretend things are different than the way the truly are.
So if you’re feeling stuck or constantly wondering “Why does this keep happening to me?”, it’s time to really look at your behavior.
Are you changing for the better? Are you truly growing?
Or are you simply resisting the lesson at hand?
Avoidance is just an ego-trap!
If there’s a lesson being put in front of you, it’s time to get real about why that is.
We’re all put on earth to learn certain lessons and to have certain experiences. If something keeps cropping up in your life, it’s trying to show you something important.
And besides, the longer you stick your head in the sand and avoid the work in front of you, the longer you’ll stay stuck!
If you’re serious about creating change, it’s time to take bold action.
Real spiritual work involves getting brutally honest with ourselves. It involves having the guts to face your problems head on. It involves figuring out what you’ve done to invite this problem into your life and why you allowed it to happen. It involves finding the old programming and limiting beliefs that got you here in the first place and putting in the work to overcome them.
Because in order to really transmute your issues, you’ve got to fully understand them first.
It’s challenging to shift your energy around recurrent problems but the best possible thing for you to do is to start to look at your problems as opportunities.
Because that’s what they really are! They’re giving you the chance to transmute your life. They’re giving you the chance to expand or shrink.
They’re here to challenge you into a better existence.
Growth always happens outside of your comfort zone.
It’s always your choice whether you want to rise to the occasion or to keep running away.
Achieving different results involves fundamentally changing the way you respond to the situation.
That’s why doing what you’ve always done, doesn’t work.
You’ve got to shift your energy around the problem by figuring out exactly what you’re dealing with and responding to the situation differently.
It might not be as easy or quick as some manifesting teachers make it out to be but the bottom line is the same. You still have the power to transform your life to be anything you want it to be.
Want to change really change your life?
Then it’s time to tame the avoidance monster! It’s time to stop running away. It’s time to stop feeling fear. It’s time to be brave and actually put in the work.
Manifesting is a totally magical and miraculous experience (and one that’s highly under-utilized in my opinion!). But there are hard limits to what you can do with it. Spiritual bypass just doesn’t work!
You’re the only one in charge of your life. If it’s time to make a change, then it’s also time to get real about how exactly you’re going to do that.
Thank you so much for joining me here, beautiful souls! I’m wishing you all the luck and love in the world on your journey.
