I have a lot of you coming to me saying that this is how you feel. Like you start to get somewhere and then all of a sudden you are propelled backwards and you feel worse off than you were before.
It doesn’t need to be that way. What is it you are trying to manifest for yourself? Are you able to let go when you start your forward movement or do you move forward while trying to hang on to old stuff? The ‘stuff’ can be ways of thinking or being, or fears or actual physical things or people.
Do you go with the flow when things start to move forward? Or do you start trying to dictate exactly what it is going to look like? Are you able to redirect yourself when something goes a little bit sideways or do you fight it tooth and nail and end up going backwards (instead of just sideways a little?).
Do you find that when things start to move forward you get a little bit nervous and then stop moving?
When things go forward do you allow yourself to practice gratitude about what is moving? Or do you complain about what hasn’t yet come into form? Do you always seem to find something to complain about even when things are going well?
I’m not writing this to place ‘blame’, or to make you feel lousy when you feel as if you move backwards. I am writing this to bring your attention to why things work the way they do for you. Mostly because I hear so often that when things start to get good, they then get worse than they were before.
If you can learn to celebrate the slightest movement forward, you will find that you are less likely to slide backwards. Going backwards is a practiced vibration. If you believe in “Murphy’s Law”, you will create Murphy’s Law moments occurring in your life.
If you are always allowing drama into your life and are constantly celebrating your ability to ‘overcome adversity’ you will in essence create more adversity to overcome.
What you focus on and what you talk about is what you will create more of. So when a little thing goes well, if you talk about that and focus on that, then more will go well for you. If you rant and rave and constantly talk about what is good in your life and really feel it and really appreciate it, you will get more of that!!
Do NOT mistake Wishful Thinking for Manifesting
A lot of you also think that if you wish for a specific thing hard enough you will get it. Sometimes it works that way, but when there is something you want it is generally a feeling that you are wanting.
Lets say you want to move into a specific house. What you really want though is the feelings that you will have if you get that house. You may see things moving in a positive direction for you moving. You may even find that events and circumstances seem to be keeping you away from that particular house. This could feel like you are moving forward, but then when that particular house isn’t available you feel as if you’ve gone two steps back. What if you were to go with the flow and be grateful for where you are at and how far you have come. You would find that although you might be at a bit of a standstill for a while (things going sideways on moving into that specific house at this specific time), if you were to go with the flow and keep your vibration high, you would wind up in the perfect spot for you whether it was that house or a better one (based on your high vibration).
This example would work the same for a job or in other circumstances, including finances, as well. Like if you started to be saving up money and paying down debt and are working to keep your vibration high and attract good things to yourself. Then your car breaks down and you wind up with either part of your savings gone or your debt back up. If you keep your vibration high and go to a place of gratitude for having the money to fix your car, you will get more to be grateful for. If you go to thoughts and a lower vibration of being angry or feeling like you are going backwards, you will create more circumstances that make you feel as if you are moving backwards.
Hoping and wishing that things will be different won’t work without the proper vibration on your part. Making promises, even to yourself, that you are in no position to keep (yet) won’t make things ‘magically’ happen. As a matter of fact, they can keep things away from you because the stress of knowing you don’t have it yet can actually create a vibration within you that will keep it away from you.
Your Expectations of Other People can also Create a Feeling of Moving Backwards
You cannot control other people or things. If your are moving forward while having expectations from other people and they do not do what you want them to do when you want them to do it, it can feel like you are moving backwards as well.
In this case, you aren’t really moving backwards, your forward movement just stopped because you were wishing that someone else would do something and they didn’t do it.
If you can train yourself to know that you create 100% of your life, then you will be able to train yourself to keep your vibration high and roll with things that don’t look exactly like you thought they would. You will be more able to keep moving forward without the feelings of being flung backwards. You will begin to see setbacks as opportunities for re-direction rather than a “negative thing that keeps happening to me”. This takes a lot of practice (and awareness) and it isn’t always easy, but it does make for a more comfortable, flowing life.
Here is a great audio from Abraham that expands on this and will help you to raise your vibration.
