The Self-Imposed Limitations of Our Power
By Charles Virtue
Humanity seems to live on a sliding scale of what we perceive as our potential.
On an average day we set out to accomplish the goals set forth before the sun once again rests past the horizon, but tend to limit ourselves to what seems achievable during the daylight hours. Yet, on marked occasions such as New Years and birthdays we allow ourselves to see far beyond the confines of our daily lives and reflect upon goals pertaining more to what we ultimately want. These resolutions, barometers of our progress to date, do not seem so unwelcome when we know it is considered normal to allow ourselves to dwell on them. The other days of the year we always keep our mind on our immediate business lest our dreams interfere with our reality.
When you set out to turn on a light, the time from which you solidify this decision to the time it is so is also a dream. It is a short dream with a clear and decisively achievable goal, but still a dream. This time period between manifestation and reality is far too often overlooked; we tend to forget that there is always a waiting period, a gestation period if you will, between our manifestations and fruition. Think back on all that you have accomplished in your live up to this moment. This is sometimes harder than attempting to remember all of your failures, but dig past those, think of what good and great you have accomplished. If you think back to not only the logically achieved goals in your life, but some of the more divine ones, you will note that there is always a time span, a time of waiting – the durations vary greatly but we cannot forget these periods. We cannot forget the journey.
What if we allowed ourselves to not be overwhelmed by the magnitude or the complex details of our ultimate goals? What if we realized that our powers of manifestation are not limited to big occasions? What if we allowed ourselves to be at complete peace with the waiting periods that exist in every manifestation ever made and yet to be made? What if we allowed ourselves to believe that the consistent desires in our lives are divine and keep coming back to us as clear signs that we are meant to manifest them into reality, once we get past our own blockades.
What is a blockade, pertaining to manifestation? It is anything you add to the equation that is not conducive to moving forward. If you stress because you think you are somehow ineligible or cannot afford your manifestations, you are blocking them. If you become impatient and decide the manifestations are not real or take far too much time, you have blocked them. If you allow yourself to be caught up in fear, negativity, anger or jealously pertaining to your desires and goals you create a blockade. But we are human, and these feelings are normal. How do we stop ourselves once and for all from impeding on our own progress? We forget.
We allow ourselves to completely detach from the end goal much as we do when we manifest to turn on or off a light. We do not let the details of such a ritualistic task even see a glimpse of our attention; we simply do what we need to do until the accomplishment is made. Whatever it is that are manifesting, please take a moment to bring that to the forefront of your mind. Now that you have it, see yourself there. STOP. Do not entertain, even for a second, a single thought of how or when! This is not important. Our body and soul will lead us there, and we just need to make sure the end goal remains clear. Now that you have put yourself there energetically, take this manifestation and picture it being encapsulated in the backmost regions of your mind, literally in the back of your head above your brain stem, and keep it there. If this manifestation ever decides to come out to visit you during your daily life, please give it the attention and reinforcement it desires, but always put it back home in your mind. Just see yourself already there and forget.
This is all we ever need to do. This is how we can manage our daily lives and still manifest with our full power and potential.
