I experienced a massive internal shift a few weeks ago. I’ve been aching to tell you guys about it, but it’s been hard to find the words.
Sometimes when an idea really shakes up your reality, you have trouble expressing it because you want to make sure to get across the extent of it’s how FREAKING AMAZING it is. You want to use the exact right words with the exact right emphasis, so that people really grasp its power. But striving for perfection is a recipe for inaction. So here’s my personal revelation, in whatever form I manage to express it.
I realized that I am incredible at manifesting my dreams in certain areas of my life and terrible at manifesting them in others.
Limiting beliefs are obviously the differentiator. Where I have no doubt that something is possible and that I am worthy, I always attain it. Where there is insecurity, I struggle.
But that’s just the thing. I struggle, actively.
When I really want to manifest something in one of these problematic areas, I try to control the outcome, I plan and over-plan, I take action, and when something looks like it might work out, I become attached to that possibility.
When I write about confidence, I say that confidence is having assurance in your character to carry you through uncomfortable situations. It’s the opposite of planning or hoping. It’s knowing.
Instead of going into a situation and thinking about the next thing you’re going to say or how you’re going to act, it’s having the courage to jump in without a plan and just vibe in the moment. You know that whatever’s thrown at you, you’re going to be ok.
When it comes to manifesting your dreams, the same kind of trust is required. But this time it isn’t just trust in your own abilities, it’s trust that the universe will provide for you. That the things that are meant to work out will happen.
When you try to control outcomes and you over-plan, you are telling the universe that you don’t trust it.
Manifestation is a collaborative process. If you want the universe to present you with opportunities, you need to show it respect and demonstrate your trust.
Visualize what you want, do your work/be of service, notice opportunities as they appear, and then have faith and stay detached. If it’s meant to be, it will happen.
Good stuff will flow into your life naturally, unless you put up barriers. Realizing this was huge for me. It allowed me to relax and stop thinking so hard.
Has letting go allowed you to realize more of your dreams?
