Top 7 Manifesting Mistakes

Those familiar with the Law of Attraction know how straightforward the deliberate creation process is: Like attracts like, so get in vibrational harmony with what you want, and let it in. Seems simple. Yet virtually everyone who practices it runs into at least a few hiccups. Here are the top seven mistakes we make in manifesting our dreams:

  1. Focusing on what you DONíT want

    Hands down this is the most common mistake my clients make. Seems obvious, and yet itís a subtle distinction between thinking about what you want versus what you donít want. Even the word ďwantĒ itself can trip you up, as for some people it has a connotation of ďlackĒ or ďbeing without.Ē

    Be aware of the words you use and the images it creates in your mind.

  2. Giving attention to the obstacles

    Sometimes it seems as if our brains are hard-wired to automatically recount all the reasons we canít have what we want. This is where you build your brain muscle to get in the habit of refusing to entertain any ďfactsĒ or ďtruthsĒ as to why your desire wonít appear. (With rare exception, there are no hard and fast rules in this Universe other than the ones you believe in.)

    Thinking about reasons you wonít get what you want keeps those obstacles strong and powerful. Let go of any thoughts that stand between you and what it is you want.

  3. Noticing you still donít have it

    The determining factors in how quickly you receive what youíre asking for are 1) how much you want it and 2) how easily youíre allowing it (a function of wanting and believing). Any time you note your desire still hasnít appeared, youíre creating resistance which keeps it from showing up. Again, this is focusing on what you donít want.

    Instead, when you find yourself noticing you still donít have it, know itís on its way and will soon be here. Remind yourself youíre a master creator who manifests whatever you choose. Itís just a matter of time!

  4. Letting limiting beliefs stand in the way

    Limiting beliefs can be tricky because weíre usually not consciously aware of them. If youíre doing everything right and still donít have what you want, itís time to look at your limiting beliefs.

    Itís easy enough to want financial prosperity or the body of a supermodel, but if deep down you think rich people are whatís wrong with this country or that you inherited ďfat genesĒ from momís side of the family, youíre holding beliefs contrary to what youíre manifesting. Those beliefs, if strong enough, will keep you from getting what you want.

    Do some soul-searching to get a handle on your core beliefs. Just becoming aware of a false belief is often all it takes for it to dissipate. To speed up the process, you can also reprogram yourself with supportive beliefs.

  6. Ignoring your (inspired) call to action

    When youíre properly aligned with what you want, youíll see evidence of it accumulating and may feel inspired to take certain actions. Listen to your intuition, follow your hunches, and take action that feels good. Itís common for overachievers to make themselves busy in taking steps they believe are required to manifest their desire, but only inspired action is helpful. Frantic activity will introduce resistance and slow down the process.
