It may seem insurmountable at times to achieve manifestation in our lives and I have found it to be for a simple reason: we don't ask, believe and allow ourselves to receive. This blocking our abundance is the realm of doubt, hesitation and refutation based on a lack of self-worth that is born out of the ego. We simply allow the ego to convince us that we can't or don't believe or accept that we are worthy of great abundance in our lives.
The formula to and for abundance and manifestation is simple yet profound: ask for what you need, believe that it will happen, that it will appear in your life and allow it to manifest by forgetting about it, not obsessing about it. This formula is the way to attune to the Field, the Universe, to Spirit, to God. It is a form of gratitude because, in essence, you are saying you trust yourself and Spirit to manifest. You trust. Big issue but an important one.
I know it's hard to believe that manifesting is as easy as 1, 2, 3 and it is once you get the hang of it. Just use the mantra, Ask, Believe, Receive. You want to convince your lower ego to get out of the way and let the abundance flow to you which it wants to do. You don't have to go toward abundance. You just have to allow it to come to you. Allowance.
Ask, Believe, Recieve. Nothing to it. Enjoy your abundance.
