Course Content


Efforting

The act of efforting less is not to achieve moderation, but to practice the art of allowing, which is your divine feminine right.   

We have been taught to move through the world in our masculine energy alone. As a result, we tend to put an enormous amount of effort into every area of our lives, and the outcome is burnout – it’s feels like spinning on a hamster wheel. This is when frustration sets in because you feel like you’re working so hard and not getting anywhere. It’s easy to give up at this point.

The good news is, you don’t have to work so hard to achieve your desires. Allowing and receiving are acts of surrender. We covered this concept in the module, Allowing.

Surrender can feel scary if you believe the universe or source consciousness is not working on your behalf. Once you have shifted your beliefs around your relationship with source, you can relax and trust that your desires will come to you without having to fight for it. This concept was covered in the module, Oneness.

The way to manifest like a goddess is to effort less. Doing the initial work of setting clear intentions is the first step in the action phase of manifesting. We covered this concept in the module, Clear Vision. The second step in the action phase is to trust and remain open to opportunities that you would otherwise miss if you’re spending time trying to control outcomes.

The ‘How’ is none of your business

Remember, it is the “What” and the “Why” that you must focus on – not the “How.” Once you relax into trusting, you will see that source knows better than you do what will actually make you the happiest.

Remain open to opportunities that are presented to you. Oftentimes, the opportunities presented to you that can help you manifest your desires faster are ones that you never considered. This is the most magical and joyous part of manifesting. And experiencing joy is the fastest path toward manifesting your desires.

Working to control outcomes is frustrating and will only keep you stuck on the hamster wheel. Releasing control means you must trust. The universe can show up in many ways to help you – through people, opportunities and personal breakthroughs that give you “aha” moments.

You must create the space by trusting. 

There is a collective belief that we must work extra hard to realize our dreams. This may feel impossible, since this reality’s perception of time is linear and it can feel as if you don’t have enough hours in the day to get everything done that you have to do, much less the things you actually want to do.

The biggest challenge is to live between effort and surrender. If you are putting in effort and resenting it, that is a clear indication that you’re out of balance and you must begin efforting less.

Have fun

In childhood, duality begins to take hold of the consciousness and the feeling of Oneness begins to fade into the background. We begin to experience a yearning to reconnect with the pure essence of the soul.

You are an infinite, spiritual being inhabiting a human body. Your soul does not care about controlling outcomes; it wants to experience the joy of Oneness. When you are feeling overwhelmed or stuck, this is your clue to stop what you are doing and have some fun. It is in the moments that we allow ourselves to experience joy and reconnect to infinite peace that we have our most inspiring breakthrough moments. We suddenly gain insight on exactly what next steps we can take.


Journal

  1. Make a list of the areas in your life where you’ve been putting in a lot of effort and not seeing results. Now consider how it feels to give so much and not see the results you’re looking for. Maybe resentment, frustration or hopelessness? What do you think would happen if you let go and had someone else take over or left it to the universe to unfold opportunities? What would happen? How does that make you feel?

  2. Make a list of all the emotions that come up in this reflection. 

  3. Now make another list of the emotions associated with being able to release those heavy responsibilities. How would it feel if you didn’t have to do it all and actually saw the results you wanted?

Action

  1. Look at both lists of emotions from your journal entry. Feel into them. Notice what happens to your body when you look at each one. Notice your emotional state. Which list elevates your joy factor? You are being asked by the universe to choose joy. When you choose joy, you automatically begin operating on the frequency of your desires and you become a direct match to them.

  2. Write down 3 actions you can take now to move into surrender. For example, you could ask for help or you could expand your social circle, or you could carve out some time for reflection or to have fun. 

  3. Once you have your list of 3 ways to move into surrender, do those 3 things this week.

  4. Be sure to share with our Manifest Like a Goddess Facebook group the ways you have moved closer toward surrender.
