New Year is in and I bet you have already decided on your resolutions. Your optimism is at its highest: “I want to get a promotion,” “I want to double my income,” “I wish I could lose 10 pounds this year.” Kudos to you! The problem with wanting and wishing is that it literally keeps you away from the very thing you want to accomplish. You think you say “I want” but what you’re implying is “I don’t have.” Why on Earth you may ask. Hold your horses. I’m about to tell you…
When you say: “I want more clients,” “I wish I could get a raise this year”,” or “I want to get a new job,” you express to your subconscious mind (and the entire Universe) that you don’t have it. It’s beyond your reach and currently unattained. You encode your subconscious, which like IRS is always watching and listening, with lack, scarcity and unavailability. Essentially, you block your manifestation ability by reaffirming the fact that you and your goal are not on the same wagon (I’m rolling with the whole “horses and cart” metaphor here) and therefore not going in the same direction. Have you ever gone to Houston by driving to Chicago? Probably not.
Here’s how you can resolve this directional (and energetic) conflict. Replace “I wish” or “I want” with “I am attracting …” Feel into this phrase: “I am attracting more money every day. I feel new opportunities, clients, and projects flowing effortlessly into my life.” When you use the present tense, e.g. “I am doing, attracting, creating, manifesting …,” you identify with your desire – emotionally, mentally and energetically. You align with abundance, availability and access so you can magnetize these outcomes to you.
Remember the Bible’s quote: “To all who have, more will be given, and they will have more than enough. But everything will be taken away from those who don’t have much.” When you use a phrase “I am …” you create a powerful synergy between you and your dream. Your horse (i.e. that pesky subconscious mind) is pulling a wagon exactly where you need to go. It hears: “I have a new job,” “I have more money,” “I have more clients.” There’s resonance between what you’re going after and where you are right now. Guess what happens then? New perspectives, opportunities and synchronicities begin to appear in your life so you can reach your goals with ease. That’s the magic and power of your subconscious mind. Why not get that horse to work for you?
My point is simple: Stop wishing or wanting. Start attracting. Isn’t that more fun? Yeehaw!
