As I begin these blogs, I am wondering if you are a prisoner behind your limiting beliefs even if you don’t know those beliefs are alive and well lingering in your subconscious mind, waiting for you to try something new and different, something you are excited about, like losing weight, a new relationship, a windfall of money only to give you the enjoyment of reaching the things you are asking for and then somehow you are back into your own self-defeating thoughts, and all the old habits that got you in the muck before have you starting all over again. Have you ever wondered what it is that seems to be counter-productive to what you say you want?
I know some of you have never heard of the Law of Attraction and think its woo woo, some do know what it’s about and don’t believe it, and others who have tried working with it and gave up thinking it doesn’t work.
I think the year was around 2006, don’t quote me on that as sometimes I get dates confused Everyone got on the bandwagon. All you had to do was focus on what you wanted and stay positive and miraculously it would appear. Well folks, so many times it didn’t because what they forgot to take into account were those negative thoughts, that had been with them for so long, shouting in the background, you’re not good enough, you’ll never be a success, you never lose weight and keep it off, you’re a failure and yes – this is woo woo. Those thoughts have been practiced for a long time and most of you aren’t even realizing they are yammering all the time, mostly in la-la-land, but when you try to do something that is against what you are constantly beating the drum about, the war is on. Have you ever thought, I am going on a diet and then all sorts of things become alive in your mind about deprivation, french fries, potato chips, counting calories etc. What about quitting smoking? As soon as you decide to quite all the thoughts become active, like I’ll gain weight and what am I going to do with my hand. Mind you, these thoughts are really trying to protect you from whatever their reasons, and they are only thoughts that have been repeated over and over until they have become habits and then beliefs.
So, the good news here is that you can change those thoughts. It takes conscious awareness of those thoughts, but imagine what it would feel like if you wanted something and knew it would manifest. What would it feel like if you wanted to lose weight to know that you would lose it and never have to think about dieting again. What would it feel like to quite smoking and never have the need to take another puff again. We aren’t talking about magic here everyone, we’re talking about scientific proof, that wherever your focus is flowing you are manifesting. There is nothing in this world that was here before thought made it so.
For this first blog post, I just want you to ponder on the possibilities that I have suggested and here is a little fun for you to try to test it out, that I found in Pam Grout’s E Squared. A great book to prove energy and manifestation exist. You declare to the universe that you want to see something and you give it 48 hours to manifest.
One is to imagine a colored vehicle that you want to see. Black or white might not be so appropriate as there are so many. I chose an olive colored van. Olive is not my favourite (nor even close) color but decided if I was going to play this game it had to give me proof. In 48 hours, believe it or not, I saw 6 olive colored vans, and that was in our little town.
Now the next one blew my mind. I was to declare I wanted to see a butterfly and to give the universe 48 hours to see it. Now it doesn’t seem like such a big feat, until you realize it was the dead of winter in a small Canadian town.
You’re to declare that you will see a butterfly, within 48 hours. Well talk about the energy rattling your cage. I never get the newspaper, but my girlfriend wanted me to see something. Would you believe! On the front page glaring in color was a beautiful monarch butterfly with a story, in the dead of winter, about monarch butterflies. It was unbelievable. I was hooked! I’ve had so much fun with this energy work. I look forward to another discussion in my next blog. Meanwhile if you have a question or comments please post in the space below. If you have a question, I would love to answer.
This has been such a year for change for me so far and I hope it has and will be for you. If it hasn’t, jump on board and join our community where you can feel free to discuss anything that you need help with.
I am so excited to announce that I am going to begin answering questions live beginning in June. Every week I will answer a question as “Ask Liz” All you have to do is come to the live sessions that will be announced and ask your questions there or if you miss the live event, post your question in the replay. If you want to hear yourself live, go to my website www.lizunderhill.com and click on the tab (I will have a link when it is ready) there where you can ask your question live and I will answer on my next session, in a podcast, live in our Facebook group, and perhaps video too. I look forward to helping you release the resistance that is creating the blocks that are preventing you from all the blessings that are just waiting for you. You only have to allow.
