How To Positively Shift Any Roadblock You Face
Thoughts create the world in which you live. It’s a very powerful statement. Your thoughts are the key component to the life you are now experiencing and will experience in the future. And like myself, if you believe in this statement, you are most likely dedicated to sailing blissfully along, maintaining consistent positivity, and updating your vision board so your dreams can appear in the near future.
Perhaps you aren’t manifesting things as quickly or easily and maybe deep down you feel stuck or that something is holding you back.
Take a deep breath.
There is… it is called your subconscious.
You’re probably wondering how your subconscious has anything to do with anything – especially with manifesting the life of your dreams.
In simple terms, there is often a disconnect between the part of your mind that fully believes that your vision board is on its way (your conscious mind) and the other part (your subconscious mind) that is doubting the process of how it is going to happen.
To put it in perspective, while your conscious mind could be guiding you toward what you want, your subconscious mind, which is so much more powerful, could be preventing it – based on fear.
So, while you’ve got your conscious mind telling you how deserving you are of the body of your dreams, your subconscious mind could be dragging you down with limited thinking that you don’t deserve to look a certain way.
These limiting beliefs are present because most of us carry around childhood memories, past traumas, and pain, causing severe stress that roots itself in our subconscious and manifests itself in negativity and fear.
Some specialists even suggest that the subconscious mind is thousands of times stronger than the conscious mind. To have a life of positivity, joy, and abundance, our conscious and subconscious thought patterns must become congruent.
From watching my clients commit to reprogramming their thoughts and deeper subconscious, I’ve learned that, without a doubt, shifting the way you think is the most important thing when it comes to manifesting what is on your vision board.
So how do you change your subconscious patterns? Below are several ways to get you started now:
1. Go outside!
For those who are city-bound, this does not simply mean walk amongst the buildings. Nature takes you back to your alpha mind state, helping you feel the earth around you and, in turn, your place in it. Being outside on a daily basis can energetically change the way you feel and live.
2. Find people who inspire you.
These should be the type of people you want to be when you “grow up.” Parents and family are great role models, but to transcend your circumstances, you have to find other sources of inspiration. When you find them, read their books, follow their stories, and build your thoughts from their teachings. Often, they will become a mirror of your weaknesses and insecurities and help you find a way past them.
3. Get a coach.
Find a great coach – someone who inspires you and can hold you accountable for your actions. A good coach will be able to see the “blocks” and what is holding you back from manifesting your desires. Often others can see in us what we cannot see in ourselves.
4. Meditate and stop over-thinking.
In a world of constant information, this might be one of the most difficult things to do; yet it is one of the most important. You have to turn off the noise, and that includes your voice. It is tough to have purely positive thoughts when it comes to manifesting what you don’t have. Creating a space of no thoughts removes any resistance that you might be holding, which may be preventing your ability to manifest.
5. Take a snapshot of your past.
There is no point in dwelling on your past; you can’t change it, but it remains an excellent learning tool. Looking at your past briefly, can present to you the patterns you are creating over and over in your life. Your recent struggles can often provide a glimpse into where you need to heal. Sending love to your past can propel you forward on your path.
6. Live beyond current circumstances.
Money, time, work, etc. can all drag you down and make you feel trapped in your present reality. You have to live beyond what you have now and believe in what you can become. As the Law of Attraction states, living within the mindset of the future version of you helps the future come to you.
7. Embrace fear.
You are never going to get rid of fear completely. So instead, you must harness the energy behind that fear and embrace it. We often feel afraid of the things about which we care most. Understand that fear usually occurs when you are about to do something you have never done.
8. Visualization and daily affirmations.
Several times a day, count backward from ten, being mindful of relaxing and visualizing your goals. If your mind drifts, just focus on the counting backgrounds from ten. Daily affirmations throughout the day, including ones of gratitude for what you already have in your life, also help you create a new state of awareness.
9. Positive thoughts, feelings, energy, and people!
Do you ever wonder how bad things happen repeatedly to the same people? They vibrate from a level of negativity, and it brings forth more and more negativity. Surround yourself with the people who believe in your vision and goals. We are not alone in the creation of our thoughts, so choose to surround yourself with only people who will celebrate with you when you manifest your dreams.
10. Pick alternative treatments that resonate with you.
Select specific mind-body treatments that will increase your vibration and energy. Since everything is energy, as you increase your vibration you are in a better space to attract what you desire. Research alternative therapies – such as acupuncture, cupping, Reiki, or crystal therapy – or consider taking up a yoga class from time to time to keep your energy flowing and positive. Identifying each specific subconscious pattern that is holding you back is not going to happen (it’s pretty much impossible). But, as you move closer to removing those subconscious blocks, everyday you announce to the Universe that you are ready to commit to change and, therefore, your life will change.
This type of focus and declaration helps you discover the changes that need to take place, in order for your life to be forever altered in the most amazing ways and attract the things you most desire!
