Happy Sunday ya’ll!
Today’s post is on the one mistake that messes people up when it comes to the law of attraction. Or the one that I've seen many times. And I am definitely on that list. Therefore I thought it was fitting to make an entire post not only this one mistake but other ones too. This will help not only ya’ll but myself.
Because let’s get real for a second: we all need to check ourselves sometimes. Especially in the manifestation process.
I have also included an info graphic (at the end of this post) just so that we all understand the big picture.
Obsessing Over The Outcome
I have said this many times and I will say this again: do NOT do this. Otherwise your manifestations won’t come into physical reality. When we do this, we begin to think in lack which tells the universe “I’m going to give more of what you don’t need.” And most of the time people don’t think doing it. It’s actual insanity.
I will use myself as an example (which is slightly embarrassing but we’re just going to go with it). I tend to do this when grocery shopping or anything related to school. An example is last week. I was looking everywhere for a great sale. I’m talking about the sales where everything is 50% off and more. In fact I was desperate. Why? I wanted to keep my faith in the universe up. Plus, as a cheap vegan, I’ll do anything for a deal. No joke. I went the mindset that there was a sale and found nothing. Zero. It was breaking my heart. Then I went to the grocery store yesterday and there was a huge clearance rack on goods. With a TON of vegan options.
When I saw this I thought to myself, “thank you universe. You’ve done it again.” I realized that was clinging on to this desire so much that was my safety net. I became attached to it which caused me to not receive my desire.
Moral of the story? Let go and stop obsessing. Trust that whatever you are manifesting is also looking for you. Trust that and you will be good.
"You are the only one that creates your reality"
And to be honest, I’ve needed to work on this because, well, I am a college senior. Which means peer pressure to be “an adult” and have a stable career straight out of college. Technically I have one it’s just not in its physical form. Therefore my goal is to do what’s needed and not obsess. That’s it.
This blog post also includes other mistakes people make because there. Is. A lot. But it's okay because we're spiritual beings having a human experience and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Not Having Faith
Have faith in yourself. When you have faith in yourself, all worries subside and the nay sayers don’t come to mind. Whenever I get into this mindset I say “I believe in myself. I am worthy. I can do anything I set my mind to.”
A lot of this has to do with our own self-doubt. The 3 AM gremlin voice that creeps in. It’s terrible and contagious. Therefore it’s important that we know our own self-worth. That if someone else can be a millionaire and a successful career, so can you.
Not Taking Action
Taking action is vital in manifestation. This can be in two forms: inspired action or intentional action. Inspired action is when you listen to your intuition. The voice that gets bigger the more you listen to it. When I decided that I was going to keep doing dance, my intuition told me to keep taking dance classes and listen to every genre of music. To keep learning and expanding. Intentional action is what the word implies: taking action. This could mean you setting up your day to be calm so that you don't end up working or studying too much.
It doesn’t need to be big. It can be small. The word “action” can intimidate us because they think that we need to be working ourselves to the bone. That’s not the truth. It’s far from the truth. We need to have fun (but stay calm) and stay open-minded. The universe will give you the tools you need for a successful manifestation.
Just don’t let the actions determine how you manifest a certain goal or career path. If anything just show up. Show up and see what the universe has in store. Let the hows come as you manifest that specific goal.
Having No Gratitude
Celebrate the small wins. Celebrate all the wins. I didn’t do this for a long time because I thought I had to be miserable in getting what I wanted. I felt like I had to be a martyr and suffer the consequences. This left me feeling broken and used.
I’ve learned to not do this anymore. To appreciate everything that is in my current reality. From the air I breathe to the people I get to see. I keep a gratitude journal. This has helped me in so many ways. It raises vibrations and keeps my morality up.
Like I said before, it’s okay to have fun in getting there. Also positive attitudes make the universe work faster. This isn’t to say that we need to feel happy all the time. I would be concerned if any of ya’ll stayed happy all the time. Sometimes we need to feel certain emotions. It’s about having an inner contentment and going with whatever tools the universe is giving us.
I hope these helped ya’ll out. Trust me I need to remind myself of these things from time to time. It’s easy to get caught up in the hows that we forget about the big picture.
With that being said, I hope ya’ll have a great night/day. Sign up for the e-mail list if you want to be notified when there’s a new post.
P.S. Here's the info graphic (aka something to keep whenever a new moon is coming up or you want to manifest something different into your life). Have fun with it kids and use it wisely.
