Manifesting from the Inside Out
“We do not attract what we think.
We attract who we are.”
The Law of Attraction tells us that like attracts like. What you put out into the world is what it reflects back to you. With this comes the understanding that positive thoughts are more likely to return to us positive results, making the use of mantras and affirmations a powerful tool for manifesting. However, we must also remember that the energy and vibration that we are putting out into the world goes much deeper than the level of the thinking mind.
So while you may be saying to the world “I’m ready for a new job” or “I’m ready for a meaningful relationship,” if you don’t deep down feel worthy of receiving those things, you are sending that message of unworthiness to the universe along with your conscious intention.
And the message you are sending from the deep, energetic level of your limiting beliefs is louder and stronger than the one you’re sending with your thinking mind.
Unworthiness, in particular, is extremely pervasive as a limiting belief. We live in a culture that tells us that if you want something, you have to earn it—be it love, money, or career success. Our accomplishments are praised and our mistakes are held deeply against us.
But the truth is that the love of the universe is not merit-based. The universe is not waiting for us to be ready. It is not judging us for all of the times that we have fallen short. It does not ask us to be perfect – it does not even ask us to be good. It loves us simply because we are. And it wants nothing less for us than our total fulfillment in every way.
To remind your subconscious of this reality, first you must uncover where you might be holding a sense of unworthiness or limiting belief. To help see under the surface of this, try the following exercise:
First, ask yourself “what am I hoping to draw into my life right now?”
Next, tell the universe “I am ready to receive...” whatever it is you are looking to manifest.
As you state your intention to receive, take a moment to notice how your body reacts. Do you feel a gentle excitement, a sense of expansiveness, supportedness, hopeful expectation? Or is there a tightness that accompanies your request? A rigidity or resistance, perhaps a subtle clenching around the heart? If it’s the latter, there may be an unconscious belief that is interfering with the message of your intention.
Whatever you notice in yourself, first sit with it. Allow it to be. Get curious about what it is telling you. And remind this part of yourself over and over and over again that it is worthy of everything you are asking for and more. This part may take some time, as these beliefs tend to become ingrained in us over time. But in the simple act of noticing, accepting, and offering this loving reminder, you will gradually feel your limiting beliefs begin to loosen and dissolve.
As always, be gentle with yourself and enjoy the journey inward.
Lots of love,
