Manifest Like a Goddess, Module 6
GOALS FOR THIS MODULE:
Understand the art of allowing and how master this art so you can receive your gifts.
Determine the root cause of your own fear-based thinking.
Build awareness around your own receiving skills and the blocks that keep you from receiving what you want.
Learn your role in the allowing process by focusing only on what you can control - The “What” and the “Why.”
Continue aligning the Root Chakra to create safety around the concept of receiving.
The practice of allowing is an integral piece in creating with feminine energy, which comprises 50 percent of the manifestation process. The art of allowing includes practicing patience, settling into the belief that the universe has your back and being open to receiving. Collectively, we have all been socialized by masculine-dominant structures to push and fight our way through the world in order to get our needs met, which is the opposite of allowing.
Ask yourself what you would like to allow into your life, and then set the intention to receive it without considering how it will show up. Consider why you want this particular thing, circumstance or experience. What would it feel like to have it?
ask “Why” & “What” instead of “How” & “WHEN.”
We often worry about the “How” and “When” more than anything else when it comes to manifesting our desires. If the path toward the desired goal can’t be seen, it’s easy to believe that it can’t be done.
Consider this: When you go on a road trip, you can’t see the entire trip ahead. You only see a few hundred feet or so of the road in front of you. What if you said, “Well, I can’t see the entire road, so I guess I can’t get there.” You would never do that! You also probably don’t know how the car runs, but you trust it to get you to your destination. If your car breaks down and delays your trip, you would just get it fixed and keep going. It may seem like a huge inconvenience at the time — but often times, you can look back on delays and see that delays actually served you in some way.
Focusing on the “Why” and the “What” is all you need to concern yourself with. The “How” and “When” are none of your business. That is for the universe to decide, because you don’t have all of the information in front of you. Remember, you are not the only entity working on your behalf.
Fear-based thinking relies on proof.
As a child, were you ever told that what you desired was impossible or irresponsible? If so, this is the programming that created the belief that your imagination is not as valuable as the tried and true rules of society. If you were socialized to replace your imagination with system rules, then the rules you bought into eventually took the leading position ahead of your imagination (and therefore hijacked your raw inspiration). This is how your divinely-inspired passions became pipe dreams. Rules came from logical-based thinking. Logic requires proof while the imagination requires nothing but joy.
Fear-based thinking is how broken systems are perpetuated. Oftentimes, it is our loved ones who encourage our shift away from imagination and toward system rules. It’s how they were taught to move through the world. Know that they only taught you this because they didn’t want to you to suffer. All humans are simply operating from their own belief systems and trying to keep themselves and those they love safe.
When you shrink your dreams to fit into the mold of what you already know, then there is no room for entertaining dreams outside of said mold. When you’re under the spell of fear-based thinking, you need proof that your goal is doable — meaning, it or something like it had to be done before. If you can’t see how to get there, then it’s easier to believe that your dreams are impossible to manifest and you should shoot for a smaller one.
The laws of manifesting have nothing to do with fear — it has everything to do with love. And the output of love is joy. Choose what brings you the most joy.
Uncovering beliefs: What words or statements did your parents, caregivers or teachers say when you presented an imaginative idea, goal or concept that was outside of the collective system structure? What was your response to them? How did it feel?
How often are you focused on the “how” and “when” instead of the “why” or the “what?” How quickly do you give up on your desires and goals when you can’t figure out “how” to make it happen or because you can’t gauge “when” it will happen?
What would feel good to allow into your life right now? Why do you want it?
You can practice receiving by allowing others to do for you. This includes accepting favors, compliments, random acts of kindness and also making requests. For requests, practice asking for exactly what you want. Instead of stating your request as a complaint, make a sincere ask for what you need, allowing yourself to show up vulnerable and only state what you want and why you want it, leaving out how or when you want it done. Once you receive what you’ve asked for, express your gratitude by saying, “Thank you.” This will help you get ready to co-create with universal energy.
Think of how you respond to a compliment, unexpected gift or favor. Sometimes we reject our gifts, usually for one of two reasons: either because deep down we feel we don’t deserve it, or we want control over the how and the when. If you notice you do this, ask yourself why you rejected the last offering, and do so without judgment. What did not feel safe to you in that moment? The answer to this question will often be your biggest clue about your blocks to manifesting.
Then, determine whether it really would have been unsafe for you to receive it. If it was safe to receive, note that and try again the next time when the same type of offering comes around.
If you are unsure of whether the offering was safe or unsafe, share your experiences with the group in the Manifest Like a Goddess Facebook group and let someone in the group help you!
