THERE IS A MAJOR MISSING LINK IN THE CURRENT CONVERSATION AROUND “MANIFESTING”….
Getting clear about what you want? It’s not enough.
Taking action to make it happen? Still not enough.
Consuming every self help book/new age podcast you can get your hands on and repeating affirmations till you’re blue in the face? Nope, that won’t cut it either.
Don’t get me wrong, these are all steps in the right direction, BUT (and it’s a big but)…
FOR MANIFESTING TO TRULY WORK YOU HAVE TO BE VIBRATING AT THE FREQUENCY OF WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU DESIRE.
“What in the actual fuck?” I can almost hear my less-than woo woo friends saying…but bear with me…
In essence, I mean that to call in or “manifest” whatever it is that you really really want (and not self-sabotage once it appears), you have to get to the root of whatever is currently blocking you from having it….and to quote Snoop Dogg, “drop it like it’s hot!”
Despite what books like The Secret would have us believe, this “un-blocking” process?
It’s not for the faint of heart.
Most people would much rather just buy the crystals, play with the goddess cards and take a few yoga classes…all the while wondering why the F they’re not getting results they want.
“Maybe manifesting doesn’t work?” they think to themselves, growing increasingly frustrated, ultimately coming to the conclusion that “all this woo woo stuff” is bullshit.
IT’S NOT BULLSHIT.
But it’s nowhere near as easy as “pop spirituality” has made it out to be.
>>Re-wiring deeply rooted beliefs that have been passed down in your family for generations? Hard. As. Fuck.
>>Breaking co-dependency and ending (or re-creating) relationships that no longer match what you want call in? Hella painful and scary.
>>Being willing to look at (and heal) childhood trauma that you’d rather not touch with a ten foot pole? Decidedly less fun than cutting out pictures of beaches and engagement rings in some magazine (#justsayin).
>>Taking FULL RESPONSIBILITY for everything you have created in your life up until this point and refusing to view yourself as a victim of your circumstances any longer? Ooof. It’s a doozy!
NOW I’M NOT SAYING THAT YOUR DESIRES ARE IMPOSSIBLE…OR THAT YOU HAVE TO BECOME SOME KIND OF NINJA CROSS BETWEEN JESUS, GANDHI AND BEYONCE TO LIVE A KICK ASS LIFE…
Not at all.
I’m just encouraging you to stop falling for “magic pill marketing” and accept that there is a reason you don’t have every single thing you’ve ever wanted right this very second.
And it’s not because “manifesting doesn’t work.”
It’s because YOU still have work to do. Lessons to learn. More chapters to write in this crazy book called life.
By all means, buy the crystals, read the self-help books and go to town creating those new year’s resolutions. But don’t stop there.
SHOW UP for the lessons life is presenting to you.
Be willing to “go there” and get messy in service of your growth.
This shit works if you do.
