We block our manifestation abilities when we build up resistance. Resistance is a by-product of when our feelings aren’t aligned with what we want.
An example is when we want something badly, but we don’t believe that we can get it then our lack of belief creates deep resistance.
Resistance tortures us inside as we don’t believe that we can have what we desire.
How do you know when you resist something?
The formula is easy.
Your feelings inform you about your resistance. If you feel joyous, happy, and confident, then you’re in a flow, and you’ll manifest more of these beautiful feelings.
On the other hand, if you feel stressed, depressed, anxious, or afraid, then you’re in resistance.
If you manifest by focusing on positive affirmations while being in resistance, you’ll get exactly that what you feel. The universe always gives you what you feel. Your feelings are frequencies that attract similar frequencies.
Therefore, one of the secrets of manifesting is first to check out your feelings and if needed release the resistance. (This article about suppressed emotions can help you).
It’s doubtful that you’d go from feeling sad to joyous in a while.
But being upset is already an improvement compared to feeling sad. You can release one feeling at a time as you climb the emotional ladder.
If you don’t believe that something positive would happen to you, then you can sit and play with your imagination.
Just allow yourself to do some daydreaming and reassure the part of yourself that doesn’t feel good that it isn’t harmful to daydream.
