If you’re reading this blog, you’re an emotionally intelligent human being. You KNOW that you can manifest, create, and attract ANYTHING that you want. You know that speaking into the positive is the awesomest way to bring yourself closer to everything your heart desires. So the quintessential question is: “why don’t we have everything already?!”
I’ll answer that question with two other questions:
What if we DID have everything we’ve ever wanted in this exact moment?
What would we have to look forward to?
Life would be so boring! We’re MEANT to be challenged warriors in this lifetime. We all have a vital purpose to contribute to the world. We’re meant to be seen, heard, healthy, and happy. As long as we’re on this planet, we will continue to expand our container or stretch our plate. There will always be more to get/accomplish/discover/breakthrough/attain. We will never stop learning, and we will forever need to have reminders to stay connected to our vision and authentic self (our ego loves it when we forget).
We CAN have whatever we want if every cell in our body KNOWS that we will get it and that failure is not an option. When we’re clear about what we want, but our energy and actions are not in alignment with our goals, the end result is exactly what we’re afraid of. Being afraid that it won’t work out will prevent us from really stepping into our power. Lingering doubts will tempt us to engage in actions that will produce our fears.
When we’re afraid that we won’t get the job we want, we show up nervous and not our authentic selves or we don’t follow through with certainty. There is nothing magnetic about that!
Don’t make yourself “wrong” for not having a certain something, opportunity, or experience yet. While action steps are vital to physically bring us closer to our desired destination, it’s our ways of being that function as our star-stuff magic. It’s the stuff that either pulls our desires into our reality at lightning speed, or pushes away people and opportunities into a whole other time zone.
We want the body of our dreams while we scrutinize our present physique. We dream about having more than enough money to cover all of our bills and expenses, but we still say words like, “oh I can’t afford that right now…” instead of declaring that we will buy it. We want to have deep and meaningful relationships but the fear of someone breaking our heart causes us to build a wall around our authentic self.
Being with scarcity conversations produces scarcity, while being in gratitude for everything you have attracts even more abundance.
Being with abandonment issues keeps people away, while being open and vulnerable invites people to connect with you on a whole new level.
Being with the fear of not accomplishing our weight loss goals will tempt us to give up, while being committed to our results will ensure that we eat mindfully and exercise even when we don’t want to.
How we do one thing is how we do everything, so if you want something in your life to change start doing everything differently one step at a time. Instead of running for 30 minutes like you always do, add an extra 5 minutes on top of that every week. Rather than avoiding that beautiful person standing behind you in line at the store, make eye contact, smile, and say “hi!” Instead of being mad that you can’t afford those new boots for the winter, go into the store and try them on with joy.
Continue being clear on your intention and taking action steps that’ll support your journey. We can’t receive what we truly want while simultaneously being fearful that it won’t happen. Our thoughts become our reality. No way around it.
Powerfully think, be, and do so you can have all that you want. We attract what and who we ARE, not what and who we WANT.
Love all that is you,
