“We find that we heal our emotional wounds and change our beliefs, the experiences of our lives change, sometimes almost miraculously. We begin to have a genuine experience of how we are creating our own personal reality. The Path of Transformation, by Shakti Gawain
Shakti’s words may hold a clue as to why our desires are slow to materialize. We may be holding in wounds that are keeping us from manifesting that which we really want, something that happens when we are not truly “ready” for our desires. I believe that God, in His providential care, does not give us what is not in our best interests. If we are wounded emotionally, we may not be able—yet—to handle a great deal of money, for example. We might easily lose it after it were acquired, and such a catastrophe might be harder on us than never manifesting the money in the first place.
The law of attraction and “creating our own reality” are closely linked. Our soul knows what is best for us, for our soul is closer to God, indeed our soul is a part of Him, I believe. If we aren’t attracting what we desire, perhaps we need to look inward at our assumptions. Do we think we are not worthy of this thing we are asking for? If so, there is a negative bias that will block the bestowal of what we want. Negativity kills a dream, of course, though when we are busy trying to manifest, we may not realize how negative our inner thoughts and feelings really are.
If something, therefore, that we have asked to have, maybe for a long time, is not happening, or we don’t see any way that it is going to happen—then look at what barriers we may be erecting internally. Journal, meditate, pray for a solution to our problem. The solution, A Course in Miracles says, is always with the problem.
We can rise above these challenges to our attracting power.
