So you want to become a master manifestor but it’s just not working for you? Well then you’ve come to the right place! Today’s episode is an exciting one because I am sharing 4 ways that you are blocking your manifestations and how you can get out of your own way so you can attract more abundance!
What is manifesting?
Before I get share how you might be blocking your manifestations, I first wanted to talk a little about what manifesting is all about, because sometimes I get asked; what IS manifesting?
Manifesting is truly just being intentional with your energy and learning how to align your energy with what it is you are wanting to attract into your life. The idea here is that the universe reflects back to you exactly who you are being. Our external world is a reflection of our internal world.
4 Ways You Are Blocking Your Manifestions
Fun fact, the reality we desire for ourselves, or the reality we wish to create for ourselves already exists! All we have to do is shift our mindset and align our energy to that reality.
However, it is very easy to lose focus by getting distracted and self sabotage in the process… Which is why in this post I’m going to talk about some of the ways you are probably blocking your manifestations.
NUMBER ONE: You question when it’s going to happen
This is probably one of the more frustrating ways that we hold ourselves back from manifesting, by questioning where the heck our manifestation is and when it’s going to happen.
Let’s say you set an intention to manifest $500 and every day you are sitting there wondering when and where this $500 is going to appear from. When you are focusing on where it is or when it’s going to come, you are actually creating resistance. This subconsciously creates a lack mindset around your manifestation which puts out that energy of resistance.
When you are wondering where it is, you are focused on what you don’t have which is that $500 you are trying to manifest. This keeps you in a lack mindset and pushes your manifestation away.
Create a manifestations jar
Creating a manifestations jar is a great exercise that helps you let go of the attachment you have to your manifestation.
What I like to do for my manifestations is first write out each manifestation separately. Then I fold them up and place them in my manifestations jar.
For example, at the beginning of the year I told myself that I bought a 2nd car in 2021.
I wrote that intention out and put it into my manifestations jar. What you want to do is use this jar to fill it up with your manifestations and as you put your manifestations into the jar, use this as a way of letting go of that manifestation. It’s like you are letting it go and allowing the universe to take care of it.
Then a few months later or a year later you can open up the jar and see how much you truly manifested.
Once I put my car manifestation into my jar, I let go of my attachment to this manifestation. I didn’t allow myself to focus on “when” it would manifest, I just knew it would happen.
It’s so important to stop questioning when it will happen and to let go of your attachment to your manifestation.
NUMBER TWO: You aren’t taking the inspired action
Sometimes I feel like people forget that the universe is working along side you. Your manifestations aren’t always going to just land in your lap. You need to take action too! If you aren’t taking action, then you are blocking your manifestation.
Once I wrote down my manifestation of buying a 2nd car, I then thought “okay, what would someone with this second car do on a daily basis? What steps would I take to make this happen?”
Let’s say you want to manifest a career where you are your own boss who sells your own art work.
Well now that you wrote that intention out the next step would be to start coming up with a business plan. Build that website! Or maybe the next step is investing your time in learning how to run a successful online business. Whatever the case may be, you need to take inspired action towards your manifestations and allow yourself to enjoy the journey. Show up daily feeling as if this manifestation is already yours by BEING and acting like the person who already has this manifestation.
NUMBER 3: You aren’t matching your manifestation energetically
Another way you might be blocking your manifestation is by not matching your manifestation energetically. If you are wanting your manifestation to come to fruition, you need to align your energy to what it is you are trying to attract.
Show up daily feeling as if this manifestation is already yours, because it is! All you have to do is shift your energy to be able to align with it.
When it came to manifesting my car I thought, how does it feel to have this 2nd car. For me it felt like freedom, because my husband and I had been sharing a car for about 2 years now which has limited my freedom.
So I started to wake up feeling like my freedom wasn’t restricted. I felt myself feeling free. I started feeling as if I was allowed to go wherever I wanted, when I wanted. I tried to push that restricted energy away. I detached myself from any restricted mindsets.
I also felt grateful for that freedom and allowed myself to also feel grateful that we had a car to begin with.
Really embodying that high vibrational energy that comes from a place of gratitude is key to manifesting.
NUMBER 4: You have limiting beliefs
This is a big one because often times it’s our limiting beliefs that hold us back from manifesting.
Remember, your dream reality already exists. What you want already exists for you! There’s a version of you out there that has this desired manifestation. All you have to do is align your energy to attract it and shift your mindset to achieve it.
It’s the stories you tell yourself about why you haven’t obtained this manifestation yet that’s holding you back, so start there.
Why do you feel like you can’t have this manifestation?
I could have thought things like, “having two car payments is really going to limit me financially. It’s going to give me an extra bill and I’m not going to be able to afford it.”
But it’s that mindset that would be a limiting belief and these limiting beliefs tell the universe that energetically I’m not in alignment to receive this manifestation.
I had to shift away from those limiting mindset and instead I put it out there that, “I am abundant, money flows to me easily and I know that I am able to afford this 2nd car and I am grateful for the opportunities this 2nd car provides for us.”
The best part is that after I shifted my mindset, this car came to ME. It was attracted to me and I didn’t have to go chasing after it.
My mom messaged me one day telling me her friend was selling their car and they wanted to know if we’d be interested in buying it. I could have sat there and questioned if I could afford it, but I knew that the longer I lingered, the more I would create all the excuses as to why this wouldn’t be a good idea. That’s how our ego works. Our ego creates fear. So instead of giving my ego a lot of time to fear, I took that leap with confidence. I knew this was my moment and I jumped on it!
Once I said yes and bought the car, I took the time to also refinance my other car. What I love most is that through refinancing my other car, it made room for this 2nd car to come in.
I received my manifestation and on top of that my monthly car payment for both cars combined is actually cheaper now than it was for my one car before it was refinanced.
It was because I was bold, fearless and firm in believing that I am abundant and worthy of this 2nd car. This mindset shift and inspired action attracted my manifestation to me and financially it all worked out because I chose an abundant mindset as oppose to a lack mindset.
The universe really does provide for you when you shift your energy and allow yourself to be in flow.
Trust in yourself and realize that the universe is always working with you
If you want to manifest successfully you need to make the happiness about the journey. Radiate the energy and happiness through the inspired action you take rather than attaching happiness to the outcome. When you attach your happiness to the outcome you only set yourself up for disappointment and it creates resistance.
It’s about the journey, not the destination. You do not obtain happiness through the external world.
My happiness is not the car. My happiness is the feeling I embodied throughout my journey towards attracting the car. It’s that feeling of gratitude and appreciating everything I do have and realizing I am never without. Happiness is my abundant mindset that keeps my desires flowing to me freely. You must be happy first. If you act as if you will only be happy once you receive your manifestation, then you are creating that resistance by attaching yourself to the outcome. a
You must first BE, and then you receive. You will always receive the energy that you give out. It starts from within. Doing the inner work and realizing that your external world is a reflection of your internal world is what will make you a master manifestor! You attract the energy and situations that reflect your internal world, thoughts and beliefs.
Any need for constant validation, or believing your happiness comes from others, or believing that money will fix all of your problems, it’s those thoughts that create more lack and resistance and blocks your manifestations.
Once you realize all of this, THEN you can truly become the creator of your reality. That’s when you flip the script and realize that you have limitless potential.
