The Secret of my Manifestations, Roadblocks and Beliefs
Roadblocks and Beliefs
This is the second article in a series on manifestation tips and tricks. Many of you watched The Secret movie or have read books on manifesting, only to be disappointed when you couldn't attract what you wanted. This hub addresses the ways in which we sabotage our selves. This is some times refered to as the secret behind the secret. I'll explain how unbeknownced to you, you are knocking your manifest train right of its tracks. How to recognize these behaviours and correct them. So, you can stop wasting your energy pushing and pulling your desires at the same time. You'll learn that by getting out of your own way, you can use the law of attraction more effectively.
Derailing the Manifest Train
Don’t block the Universe with negative beliefs. If you have doubts regarding anything you want, you are severely slowing their arrival. These can be beliefs you were raised with, or excuses you make for areas of lack in your life.
Beliefs like: “Money brings out the worst in people” and “You can’t have everything you want.“
Your negative beliefs can take a desire that is flying to you at record speed and stop it in it tracks. Just last weekend my husband was telling my uncle how he wanted to build an outside kitchen area with a barbecue on our back porch. He was describing it in detail. I smiled because I knew then it would be manifesting soon. I could practically hear the freight train coming with my new outdoor pizza oven. He was so enthusiastic about it. His wanting was obvious. He was very clear about what he wanted; he’d even torn a picture out of SunSet Magazine of how he wanted it to look. It was going to be beautiful. Then I heard the screech of breaks as his locomotive locked up its wheels. “Too bad we’ll never be able to afford it. I just can’t get ahead” This statement null and voided the outdoor kitchen he’d started manifesting.
Its negative beliefs about wealth, that kibosh a lot of good dreams. Recognize them when you say them and then think to yourself instead, one of these positive little phrases:
- The Universe is expanding and so are my opportunities.
- My boat comes in, every ten minutes.
- I am the creator of my reality.
- Lack mentality is a myth.
- I’m happy right where I am.
- Joy begets joy.
- You never know where money will turn up next.
- I was just born lucky.
- Money loves me.
- The Universe is always throwing money at me.
- They're printing more money for me right now.
- I always get checks in my mailbox.
- I'm always in the right place at the right time.
- Money allows me to help my fellow man.
- Scarcity is just an illusion.
- My talents and experience are worth millions.
- Opportunities fall like rain.
Do you ever think, worse yet say out loud and share with others, any of the following negative or limiting beliefs?
- Money doesn’t grow on trees.
- There’s never enough.
- We have only just enough to get by.
- You have to have money to make money.
- Money is the root of all evil.
- All the good ideas have already been thought.
- All the good jobs have already been taken.
- Waste not, want not.
- A dollar saved is a dollar earned.
- Money corrupts.
- You have to work hard to get ahead.
- Opportunity only knocks once.
- I was born unlucky.
- I’ll never get ahead.
- Every time we get ahead, calamity strikes.
- Its just a vicious cycle.
- I can not afford that.
- Money is tight right now.
- Everyone is feeling the pinch.
“You don't have to think about money in order to let in money. You just can't think about lack of money, to let in money.”
Abraham-Hicks Publications Excerpted from a workshop in North Los Angeles, CA on 8/13/2001
How do you change deep seated negative beliefs? Well luckily you don’t have to. One remedy is to just not focus on them. Focus on the desire instead. Focus on the Pizza Oven, not on who’s gonna pay for it. Think about the details of the project but stop short of the negative belief. If you hear yourself say “but” stop! But all the contractors are busy. But I really can’t afford it. But we can’t agree on the roof. Don’t spend any time on the negatives. Don’t give them anymore pull. Abruptly switch your thoughts back to the want. Back where your happy place is. Focus on the end result, not how you are going to get there.

Another way to stop the flow of positive experiences in your life, believe it or not, is humility. Many of us were raised to believe humility is an honorable trait. This can really work against you though, if you constantly down play the positives in your life or brush off compliments.
When someone says, “You really look like you’ve lost weight!” and you respond with, “Its just the clothes,” or “I still have a long way to go,” you have actually started attracting more weight. The easiest neutral response is to say, “Thank You.” Instead why not use these opportunities to take a step forward. A compliment is a perfect opportunity for an affirmation. Follow “You’re looking thinner,” with “Thanks, the weight is just falling off,” or “ And I feel better too!” Get that law of attraction working for you.
If someone admires your material possessions don’t point out their faults or make excuses why you have them. For some of us its a knee jerk reaction. Someone may say, “What a lovely home” and your response is, “Its a long way from finished.” They may say, “Nice Rig!” and you reply, “But the gas bills are killing me.” Again, “Thank you,” always works instead, or “I really feel blessed,” or if they are open minded, “Have you ever read about the Law of Attraction...”
Remove Limiting Beliefs with EFT
One last stumbling block I want to mention is the feeling of unworthiness. If you feel you are not worthy you will really slow down the manifest train. God/Source Energy/The Universe created you as a creator. You are supposed to create things into your experience. You are so loved by your creator; there is no one more worthy than you.
An offshoot of unworthiness, is the fear of taking from someone else. The fear that there is not enough to go around. On a spiritual level in may seem immoral to attract things to yourself when there are others in need. Please know that the Universe is expanding, and opportunities are also. Take for example shampoo manufacturing. I traced an interesting e-mail back to Rush Limbough’s website that stated in 1906, “Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used borax or egg yolks for shampoo.” Today most women believe they must wash their hair every or every other day with specially formulated shampoos. Can you see how this change in belief has changed and expanded the shampoo industry. The internet, of course, is another prime example of these exploding opportunities. Don’t try to guess how we will all be taken care of, if we all focus on abundance; we will.
Change Your Mind
So, does this mean you need to start monitoring your thoughts? Does this mean you always need see the glass as half full? Does this mean you should go around with rose colored glasses trying to be positive and happy all the time? Does this mean you should turn away from all the things in the world that bring you down? No. Unless you actually want your dreams to consistently come true, then yes.
