If you’re not living your optimal life, then you’ve restricted your flow of abundance. The Universe pours good into your life, but your thoughts of lack, limitation, or loss have squeezed this stream to a trickle. And you may not even be aware of the beliefs that have created this restriction. They may be so much a part of what you tell yourself, that they’ve become background noise and you don’t pay any attention to them.
To get started on identifying your limiting ideas, here are some of the beliefs that people have that can limit their attracting what they want.
You think there’s not enough to go around. You may feel like there’s not enough money, jobs, people who would want to be your friend, people of the opposite sex in your age range who would be interested in you, or customers in your region who need what you offer. This is coming from a belief in lack, but remember that the Universe is abundance. When you decide what you want, and get your conflicts resolved about it, then the Universe will make sure the right amount of money, job, person or people will find you.
You’re feel you’re too old/young/fat/skinny/tall/short/disabled/etc. You feel a lack within yourself, so you find perceived flaws in your outer self. Imperfections that you think will make people reject or not appreciate you. You may feel that some characteristic of yours will be wrong for a partner, job, or whatever. But when you accept your uniqueness, and recognize your own worth, then you’ll draw just the right situation into your life. You’re the one who judges yourself lacking. Others don’t. God made you the way you are for a reason, and you’re wonderful in Its eyes.
You believe your environment is limiting you. By environment, I mean outer conditions. For instance, you feel that you can’t advance in your job (either moving up or getting a raise), the economy is bad, you’re a single parent and are afraid you won’t find a partner who will accept your children, etc. If you think you’ve reached an income or advancement ceiling, that block is in your own mind. You may not get a raise or promotion from your current employer, but you may get a better job elsewhere. If you’re a single parent, once you open up to believe that maybe there is someone right for you who also loves kids, you may be amazed at what happens. The Universe doesn’t recognize a recession or limitation on good. Consider that your beliefs may be based on incorrect information, and think about what that could mean.
You can’t see how it can happen. You have no clue as to how your heart’s desire could possibly manifest. But it’s not up to you to figure out how. That’s the job for the Universe and your creative mind. For instance, if you want to visit Greece, but don’t have the money now, start pulling together information and put your pennies in a piggy bank. You take what action you can, and let the Universe take care of the rest.
You say “I can’t.” Notice where you’ve thought “I can’t do that” or “That couldn’t happen.” Who said you can’t or it couldn’t, and why not? Constantly saying this creates a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you want to learn how to belly dance, it doesn’t matter if you’re overweight. Do it. Ask for guidance from the Universe to bring what you need to achieve your goal.
The limitations are all in your mind. Think of what it is you want, and begin to notice all the negative concepts you have around it so that you can overcome them. Whenever you restrict the Universe’s full expression, it has to do with fear. And fear is an illusion that keeps you from accepting something greater than what you are currently experiencing.
Without realizing it, you’ve put up barriers to Spirit expanding in your life. Stretch your consciousness of good. Think of the best thing that you could possibly imagine happening, and then let it go. When you open your mind to the possibilities, the Universe has much more room to flow into and miracles can occur.
The Universe doesn’t know recession, lack, limitation or loss. The Universe is abundance of all good things. I now release any false or restrictive ideas about my desire. I am the right person for my goal. Whatever I want is available in Infinite Mind, and is now finding its way to me. I attract the right person, income, job, conditions, information, or whatever I need to fulfill my goal. I let go of concern about how it can manifest, and let the Universe take care of the details.
