Well that sounds easy enough. I’ll just think about all the things I want in my life and they’ll manifest NOW! Haha if only it was that simple. Well, it could be if we were in a place of complete allowing. Our intentions would be pure, our focus razor-sharp, and in an instant our desires would be fulfilled.
But like everything in our perfect universe, this principle is based on that of duality, and on the opposite end of the spectrum we have resistance.
allowing <<< >>> resistance
Resistance is what ultimately stops us from fulfilling our desires. It keeps us stuck in the lack of it (the job/healthy body/relationship/money, etc.) and draws that which is like itself towards us. Haven’t you noticed when you don’t have resistance to something, how easily it comes into your life? It’s like the more you want something from a place of need, the more resistance is created, and the harder it is to get it.
“If you are resisting anything, you are focused upon it, pushing against it, and activating the vibration of it – and therefore attracting that which is like it.”
– Abraham Hicks
The Art Of Allowing
So how do we stop this? Simply, we get out of our heads.
It’s pointless thinking about what we really want if we have this strong feeling of the lack of it in our lives. The universe ultimately wants us to flourish. It is known that wellbeing is always flowing towards us, and we are either allowing it or resisting it
Find something that makes you feel good and do it. For me it’s yoga, walking in the park, hiking, going to the beach, doing something creative (writing, photography), playing with animals, etc. Being in nature helps a lot – it resets us, reconnects us, and makes us feel good.
Also, I can’t stress enough how much meditation has helped me. It gets me back into my heart and focused on what matters most. It helps me see the bigger picture, and look at my situation from a different viewpoint. I can almost look down on myself, and see my life playing out, like a game on this big chessboard of life. It reminds me that none of this really matters, all these little things that consume us daily; and yet at the same time, it all matters.
Do whatever you can to get out of your head, and into your heart (your feeling place), and watch the magic start to happen.
