Have you ever just wanted something so badly that you wished, prayed, looked for shooting stars and found that those rituals didn't work for you?
I've been there, done that.
But I realized the problem wasn't for the rituals themselves, as it was more so to do with how I was asking for them.
Manifesting. Law of Attraction. Call it what you want, they're pretty much the same. Both focus on shifting your mindset to allow you to be more open into receiving such gifts. When done well, it can help you to create a life that you desire and I promise, with patience, it does work.
For some people who are so centered with themselves and are so aligned with their entire being, manifesting can be so easy as literally asking 'I want a brand new Porche" and then receiving it a week or two later (That LITERALLY happened in another business group I'm in). But for people like me who maybe are less confident, less sure of themselves, worry too much or overthink, then it may take a little more effort to ask and receive, but it still can be done.
I began shifting my mindset in 2010. I was someone who said "no" to everything. I hated being uncomfortable and I hated doing things with others. Today, I still hate doing things and I still don't like being uncomfortable, but I am more inclined to participate in events or outings if I am able to gain an experience or learn something. My goal was always to be in business for myself, doing what I loved, helping people, and most of all creating my own schedule, and I am happy to say that I am happily on my way to doing just this. It took a while, but there was A LOT of mental and emotional baggage and things that I needed to change before the Universe felt comfortable enough to reward me with my requests.
Think about it this way: Why would the Universe give you what you want, if you don't even appreciate the things you have now? I did this with my sister growing up: "Why am I going to buy you that? You're only going to ruin it or lose it. You don't care for it and then you end up breaking it or losing it...You don't appreciate the things we give you so no".
Sound familiar? The Universe works in the same way. YOU need to change your mindset to appreciating life's little blessings in order for the Universe or God or whatever religion you follow, is going to reward you with your desires.
If you'd like to read up on Mindset and Law of Attraction, I highly recommend reading "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne. It was the book that jumpstarted me and I still read it from time to time. What's nice about this book is you can jump around from concept to concept without having to read it start to finish. "Get Rich, Lucky Bitch: Release Your Money Blocks and Live a First Class Life" by Denise Duffield-Thomas is also pretty funny and light hearted but helps with your mindset around money, wealth and abundance. She also swears which I find relatable (lol) but if you don't like that sort of thing then you probably won't identify with it as much. (Not an ad or endorsement post!)
There are many other resources like podcasts, books, Facebook groups and websites that also discuss Mindset and Manifestation, so I encourage you to explore and find one that will resonate with you.
I am also giving away my top 5 tips to shifting your mindset and jumpstart your manifesting abilities here. You'll be able to receive my guide on how to shift your mindset and the reasonings behind it. These are the top 5 things that I personally did to start living my best life and on my way to achieving my dreams.
