Obstacles to Manifestation – The Power of the Unconscious - April 29, 2011

Have you ever found yourself saying one thing and doing another?

Do you believe your conscious and unconscious are separate entities or interdependent?

Why does positive thinking not work like many say it will? “Just do it” they say and you will be able to attract and manifest what you desire. Why does it not always work for you?

The conscious and the unconscious mind is often likened to an iceberg with 10 percent above the water equating the conscious and 90 percent, the unconscious mind, under the water and out of sight.

Obstacles to Manifestation – What Do You Really Want? - April 8, 2011

”I always wanted to be somebody, but I should have been more specific!” – Lilly Tomlin
It is difficult if not impossible to have a full meaningful life if we do not know what we really, really want. We may present ourselves as knowing, however often it is a glib statement voiced without reflection. “I want this”, “I wish I could do that” and “As soon as this is over I will do…(fill in the blanks)”. Underneath such vagueness is the fact that many people have not examined their dreams and desires in order to know what they truly desire.

Obstacles to Manifestation: Fear of Change

Since change is the only constant in our lives, why is it so frightening to choose to change? Often it is thrust upon us and we didn’t see it coming. It may come in a way that cuts us off at the knees, such as having life, as we know it obliterated, like a tornado or hurricane. Somehow when such happens, time and time again we observe people having the courage and determination to reach down into their reservoir of resilience to deal with catastrophe. Where did all their courage, fearlessness, faith, determination come from, we ask ourselves. How were they able to do it?


Currently published articles that I have written for the website.


Obstacles to Manifestation - Fear of Success

Many of us, at a deep level, are afraid of success. On surface, we declare that we are going for the gold, the Ph.D., own a business…be the best! That which actually manifests in our life may be something entirely different. What is certain is that our core beliefs will express in our life regardless of what we say. When there is conflict between conscious wants and unconscious beliefs guess what manifests. The unconscious has the most powerful influence on the level of success evident in our lives.


Obstacles to Manifestation - Fear of Failure

When we list our desires, wants and life goals, we often omit “failure”. We must fail if we are to risk living passionate lives. We live in a culture that has become soft, in that it conditions us to seek comfort and avoid discomfort. There is a lack of appreciation for the wisdom that hardship bestows. There is an illusion that it is possible to live in a world where things come easily and failure can be avoided, and if your life is not “this ideal,” there is something is wrong with you. We will naturally take the path of least resistance, clinging to the familiar, staying within our restricted safe places in an attempt to control the outcome.


Obstacles To Manifestation - Fear of Freedom

“Is the life I’m living the life that wants to live in me?”
Parker Palmer

A new acquaintance asked Zorba the Greek if he were married. Zorba roared passionately: “Of course I’m married, I have a wife, kids, bills, problems, the full catastrophe.” Our “full catastrophe” may look different; but, like Zorba, we can embrace all of life and we can be free. A full passionate life embraces the joys and the agonies, the loves and the losses, as well as the sweet and the bitter. When we accept life’s paradoxes with responsibility we are afforded an opportunity to select our path through the uncertainties. Acceptance does not mean we like what we see, just an acknowledgement life’s reality as it is. Acceptance provides a starting point to paint on a larger canvas, if life is to be more than it is presently.


Manifestation: Understanding the Law

(Having More of What you want in your Life)

The Law of Manifestation is neutral and always working. Your life at this time is a reflection of all your past thoughts, beliefs, feelings, behaviors and attitudes. Recognizing that your life is greatly influenced by past experiences is the key to understanding the Law of Manifestation.
