I was having such an interesting conversation with some fellow coaches about our receiving skills. It’s a bit of a law of attraction term but basically a lot of us know what we want, we know what we want in life and we are very good at asking for it, very good at just putting it out there and saying to the universe ‘this is what I want to create’.
But sometimes we are not very good at receiving those things when they come our way and it’s just the simple things that we are doing each day that might be blocking these skills.
I was really inspired by an email by Lisa Marie Hayes about what do I do if the law of attraction is not working for me - 5 Things To Do After You Give Up On Deliberate Creation.
I have been having quite a lot of conversations with people who are already amazing manifestors but they can start getting stuck in that feeling of ‘it’s not working for me’, ‘I don’t know what to do, maybe I’m not asking for the right thing’, ‘maybe I’m not asking for things in enough detail’ - they just feel like there is something wrong with whatever they are asking the universe for or they’re are not allowing enough, all sorts of things could be going on in their mind.
Are there parts of your life that you really want to change but can’t work out how? Is your life starting to feel like a constant re-run of an old film where you know exactly what is going to happen and how it is going to end up? Are you tired of repeating the same old patterns that keep you feeling stuck?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then it could be time to make a decision to finally ‘change your story’ – yes you know, that one that you keep telling yourself in your head every day or keep talking about to others…
Does this sound familiar? You wake up in the morning, have your coffee, read your list of important things to do today…. and just feel like turning round and going back to bed – or you vow to plough through your list, yet end up spending your day focusing on the easy, smaller tasks that feel safe and keep you busy.
This is procrastination – the state of mind that takes over when we feel overwhelmed and disorganised. I have been there many times and if you are reading this, my guess is that you have too, in fact you are probably feeling that overwhelm right now and hoping articles like this will at the very least give you some relief and comfort that you are not the only one… and if possible some kind of magic formula to stop feeling so stuck!
Making peace with where you are isn’t just about being satisfied and appreciative of what you already have (although that is an amazing thing to feel), it is also essential if you want to create and attract more of what you desire into your life.
Even when everything hasn’t gone to plan, you feel like you are going off track or you just don’t feel like you are achieving everything that you want to achieve, making peace with where you are is one of the most effective ways to make a shift towards where you want to be.
… but as wonderful as it sounds, so many of us can still feel like we are swimming against the tide and resisting that state of inner peace that really has the power to make all the difference – but why is this?
