I’ve written about this before, but it’s worth repeating. I get this question all the time. “Where’s my stuff?” I’ve been putting it out there and I’m not getting my stuff.” And I get the frustration. Happens to all of us. So let me ask you…
Are you paying too much attention to your current reality?
In other words, are you focusing on, and paying attention to, the fact that you haven’t gotten your stuff, or are you paying attention to the stuff itself?
Let me give you an example of how we usually try to manifest something. And, in honor of the holidays, I’ll make it one that many (dare I say most?) of us are familiar with. Let’s say you want to lose some weight. So, knowing what we know about the Law of Attraction, you decide how much weight you want to lose and/or you find an example of the perfect body for you. Every day you spend some time focusing on that picture. You see yourself in that beautiful body. You see yourself enjoying exercising. You see yourself eating wonderfully delicious and healthy foods. You see yourself fitting in to those clothes in the way back of your closet. And after awhile, you actually start to get excited about it! (Remember, a belief is just a thought you keep thinking…) You actually believe you’re going to have this beautiful body! You’re going to lose the weight! You’re going to look and feel so much healthier! When you look in the mirror, you actually do feel better! You actually do look better! And then what do you do?
You step on the scale.
And it isn’t the number you want it to be. And all those good feelings abruptly stop. You feel dejected. You feel like a failure. You feel sad and depressed. What did you do wrong?
You paid too much attention to reality.
By constantly checking on the progress of your ‘stuff’, you’re actually thwarting that progress. By checking in with your current reality, you’re slowing down your future reality. And here’s the important part. When you were visualizing that new, beautiful, thin body, how did it make you feel? Now, how did it make you feel when you stepped on the scale?
How would you rather feel?
