After I watched The Secret, I became a Law of Attraction junkie (and Lisa Nichols fan) with vision boards for every area of my life. I was focused on co-creating my perfect world with the Universe.
However, my manifestation record was spotty to say the least – probably a solid B minus. This caused me to give up the practice until later in my life when I started tinkering with my mindset as an entrepreneur.
If you don’t know what the Law of Attraction is, in a nutshell, it can be summarized in the following statement: “The Universe always supports your choices.”
It took me two years of inner self work to fully understand the mechanics of these six words and, lucky you, I’m going to save you precious time so you can break the cycle that prevents you from manifesting with the Law of Attraction.
Most us are operating under several limiting beliefs that were handed down for generations, just like Grandma May’s apple pie recipe or, in my case, Auntie G’s lumpia recipe.
As children, we gleefully ate up these beliefs without realizing they would create our ideas of what was possible in the realms of success, wealth, love, and more.
To be succinct, your beliefs create your choices.
If you believe in lack, you will create choices based around the belief of lack.
However, you also have the freedom to co-create with the Universe. Regardless, if I choose to believe that crystals have healing powers, or that they’re just pretty rocks, the Universe will support my choice, and my reality will be created based on my choices.
Phew! Still with me?
In order to get into the juicy flow with the Universe, you are going to have to take a hard look at your core beliefs.
Let’s tackle the most prevalent lie most of us were taught that became a core belief: “I am not good enough.”
If you are operating under this false belief, everything in your reality will be created around the false belief.
If you are trying to manifest that shiny new car or the love of your life, the part of you that believes you are not good enough is going to put up a big stop sign. And guess what? Your manifestation won’t come into your reality, and you will more than like end up thinking that something must be wrong with you (PSST… You aren’t good enough for it). Well, Sugar, you just manifested exactly what you really believed.
The Universe works by following your feelings and vibrations. The Universe doesn’t care if you are a straight A student or if you’re 30 pounds overweight. The Universe works like a dolphin’s radar. If you feel/know/believe/act/work like you are a millionaire, you are going to be a millionaire.
So, how do you break this cycle? You have to do the inner work. There are just are no shortcuts and, believe me, I’m the queen of short cuts. You are going to have to take a fiery blue sword to that faulty operating system you’re working with and plant new core beliefs.
Trust me when I say that after you have swapped out these limiting beliefs, you might find that the Range Rover you’ve wanted since you were 10 years old is NOT a good fit because it’s just too cramped and narrow for you.
Also, sometimes your wish list won’t manifest because it’s just not for your highest good or, quite frankly, you would hate it. Once your clear out these limiting beliefs and start creating from your authentic self, your preferences may change a whole lot more than you think.
My favorite healing modalities to break the cycle are as follows:
1. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)
EFT, which is also known as “tapping,” works by releasing energetic blocks that are the source of emotional pain. There is no physical pain involved when performing EFT, but it can result in tears and yawning. (Hello, yawn queen over here!) YouTube has hundreds of videos that you can try free. Just search EFT (fill in the blank), and you’ll find something that resonates with you.
2. Energy Work/Reiki
I love reiki so much that I became a Reiki master. Reiki is not magic; it’s universal energy. The recipient or Reiki can set the intention for what she wants to heal. This can be emotional pain, physical pain, or both. Reiki has helped me release a lot of limiting beliefs.
3. Cord Cutting
Sometimes the only way to heal and remove a limiting belief is by cutting the energetic cord to the person who created it. Rituals can be as simple as repeating affirmations and burning sage while calling on Archangels for assistance. You can search the internet to find a cord cutting ritual that works for you.
For me, affirmations were just pretty words on paper until I cleared out my limiting beliefs. I could not connect with the idea that I was wealthy when, during a portion of my life, lack was a regular member at the dinner table. Affirmations are everywhere. Just pick one (or several) that resonate with you and repeat it until it becomes part of your belief system.
