You might have done all of the so-called “right” things. You’ve purchased the crystals, written out your intentions, wished on the magic of the moon, excavated your belief systems, kept your thoughts positive (to the point that you’re pooping out rainbows like a unicorn), and yet your manifestations are still yet to make an appearance into your life.
The simple answer? YOU are the cause and YOU are the solution.
Here are 7 things to do when your stuff (AKA dreams) still haven’t manifested themselves into your life and you're waiting…and waiting and….waiting. Are we there yet?
1. Get out of your own way
You’re not doing anything wrong. You haven’t jinxed yourself. You just need to stop being so stuck in your head about the outcome. As the old saying goes: “A watched pot never boils.”
Remedy: distract yourself. Try watching a Netflix series like Outlander, Bling Empire or The Crown. Nothing makes you stop obsessing about what is not in your life more than seeking a little escapism into the wonderful world of TV. This releases the energy of expectation and helps you to go with the flow.
2. Trust the timing of your journey
Timing is everything when it comes to manifesting and the law of attraction. You must trust that the Universe is always impeccable when comes to the art of Divine timing. What is meant for you will arrive in your life when it is meant to and not a moment sooner.
Remedy: Make a list of the wonderful things that have happened in your life over the years. Now imagine what would have happened if they arrived too early in your life. This is an exercise in trusting the Universe, always. You'll start to see a pattern.
3. Declutter your home + office
Everything that you own in your life has a frequency or a signature energy pattern. Sometimes holding onto the stuff that no longer serves you will sabotage the flow of energy in your life and block your stuff from manifesting.
Remedy: Clear out the old and make way for the new. If you need a little help with this you might enjoy my popular online course called The Life-Changing Miracle of Decluttering.
4. Make peace with what is
This is the most important element of all manifestations. When you are at peace with what is you are in flow, in tune with infinite possibilities, and ready for the magic that the Universe will deliver into your life.
Remedy: Having a daily gratitude practice helps you to switch your focus onto the things to appreciate in your life. Write down 3 things daily that light you up from within and that you feel grateful for.
5. Stop waiting to be rescued
Disney storylines are responsible for a lot of people believing that finding true love is the answer to all of their problems. Don't get me wrong, finding love is beautiful but more often than not, when you do find your beloved then shit really begins to hit the fan. It’s not all roses and butterflies – relationships take hard work to succeed. If you are waiting for Mr. or Ms. Right to waltz into your world riding a gallant steed, hinting that they will provide you with riches and abundant security for the rest of your life…then RUN!
Remedy: Save yourself. Actually, empower yourself to be self-sufficient so you can share your life with your beloved. You are equals and part of a mutual support system.
6. Ditch comparing yourself to others
You must stop looking at other people’s lives and assuming that it’s better than yours because they have manifested what you might want. Unless you walk a mile in their shoes, you will never know what it’s truly like behind the scenes. The grass is always greener, the reality is sometimes radically less glamourous that you would want. When you compare yourself to someone else you fall out of alignment with infinite possiblities.
Remedy: Celebrate your own uniqueness.
7. Your emotions will manifest your dreams, starting NOW.
Remember, manifesting is all about how you FEEL NOW. It’s not about the future or the past. It’s about activating the magic of the present moment. It’s about feeling grateful for each step of the journey. It’s also about allowing yourself to have crappy, uninspired days with the understanding that you will rise up again soon. Trust the journey, always.
Remedy: FEEL your emotions as they come up. If you need a little help then pick up a copy of my book called Dear Universe: 200 Mini-Meditations For Instant Manifestations.
