MANIFESTING YOUR DREAMS
Manifesting your dreams sounds easy right? I mean all you have to do is get Clear on what you want, uncover your WHY, ASK for it, TRUST and BELIEVE that it’s coming, take ACTION, stay POSITIVE and keep your VIBES high and boom your dreams are now your reality. It’s a little more complicated than that.
I can be so close to manifesting everything I desire and the universe is just about to grant me my wishes but wait after some time I throw my hands up on the air and say “ok UNIVERSE I’m waiting” “why isn’t it here yet?” and the Universe responds to my words and pulls back the reigns.
The difference between manifesting your dreams and never attaining them are some hard truths! For example: my world is an umbrella of OCD and under this umbrella there is a need to CONTROL, be PERFECT, ORGANISED, and engage in DAILY RITUALS. However, this does not define me, it’s just the way my brain is wired. Being an entrepreneur has challenged me in so many ways. Spending endless hours on creating the perfect website, the perfect video, the perfect product and waiting for things to happen. Planting, nurturing, and watering the seeds daily but not seeing the fruits of my labor.
The problem was that I was constantly digging up the seed to see how it was doing never allowing it to germinate, grow, sprout and flourish. I did not trust the process. My brain reaction was to DO DO DO instead of BE BE BE!! I pulled the reigns back a bit and took a hiking trip to Utah to just let go and simply BE. In the space of NO-THING is where the magic happens.
During this trip I gained a new customer, I had a potential customer wanting to put my product on her menu, my trip was basically paid for and all this was happening behind the scenes while I was living my life in the moment. So the secret ingredient and my big life lesson as I navigate an entrepreneurial life was to put in the work, don’t force opportunity, but when opportunity arrives- ACT, BE GRATEFUL, TRUST and leave the rest up to the UNIVERSE.
Stop waiting, get out of your own way, stop using limited language like, it will never happen, it’s just not in the cards for me, it’s impossible, I’m tired. Give up waiting to be happy, and give up control. When you try to control every aspect of your life you are actually resisting the very thing that you want to manifest into your reality.
