Do you ever wonder how some people make manifesting easy, while you stay stuck in an endless cycle of frustration and disappointment? It’s very likely you are jumping over what is most needed in order to manifest like a boss.
If you want to move forward in your manifesting game, focus on mindset before manifestation.
Many people start their manifestation process at affirmations, but they haven’t developed the mindset to support them. Mindset is so much deeper than saying a positive phrase repeatedly and expecting to change the entire dynamic of your life.
Mindset is the most critical factor behind getting solid manifestations of the things you desire.
Yes, positive statements are needed but they render useless if you haven’t identified and released your pre-programmed limiting belief system.
You are badass. You are beautiful, you are bold, and you are exceptional. But you are also a human being who has emotions, feelings, trauma, pain, and guilt from experiences and events.
Throughout the course of your life, you’ve developed a poor mindset based on certain situations and setbacks that don’t support your new efforts to create a positive, more fulfilled life. In order to do this, you need to identify and heal your core wounds so new mindset patterns can take hold.
Crush limiting beliefs.
Limiting beliefs are often what stops us from completing the desired intention, especially for larger or out–of-the-ordinary things. On a deeper level, limiting beliefs are also known as counter–intentions. These are statements and thoughts we tell ourselves consciously or unconsciously that define our everyday life. We create outcomes we didn’t intend to or want, because of deeply-ingrained beliefs that affect our mindset on the daily.
For example, “I am a fraud.”
A statement as negative as this will usually stem from a few things such as low self-esteem, family or friends talking about others being frauds or your fear of judgment of what others may think of you.
The fact is you haven’t created the life you desire for one of two reasons:
- You have been using the Law of Attraction in such a way that calls in everything you don’t want in life rather than what you do want.
- You have not cleared up your counter–intentions (aka limiting beliefs).

Deep within the depths of your soul lies everything. Since you were born, layer by layer of programming has been added to your state of being and way of thinking.
Heal core wounds by feeling them.
I’m going to be real with you right now or you will continue to spend most of your life, if not the rest of it, searching for contentment and desires that you may never find. Situations and emotions happen that cause us pain, trauma and the feeling that life will always be this way. The only way that is the truth is if you allow it to be.
That being said, I encourage clients to feel feelings, always. Feel the feelings of the past, of the present and of the future, just don’t put them on to wear. Browse through them, taste test them to gain perspective then let them be as they are. Breathe no more life into them. The reality is that if you don’t break free of your limiting beliefs, you’re screwed. You end up playing them on replay over and over throughout your life.
I wrote an eBook that specifically helps you identify and crush your limiting beliefs. I encourage you to download it and use it as often as you need to. Limiting beliefs are often the gateway into your core wounds. Hiccups will come into our lives; it’s how we choose to handle them that is the biggest breakthrough.
Make manifesting easy by going beyond the belief.
I want you to not only discover your limiting beliefs, I want you to uncover where they came from. Likely, these are dark and painful places. Many people think that they’ve already tackled these things in the past but likely, all they really did was state that they happened.
Getting to the root of where your beliefs came from, healing them and releasing is where the real magic happens. When you dispel your fears and move into a higher vibration, manifesting becomes not only more possible but assured.
Why mindset is so crucial to manifestation.
At this point, you may be pulling the reins back saying, “Are you f’n kidding me? What does this have to do with me making/getting XYZ anyway?”
IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT.
Some experiences may be incredibly difficult to revisit but these are the things that keep you literally chained to the floor.
Whether its feelings of guilt, anger, loss, or loneliness or thoughts of being average, broken, unlovable, difficult, or a loser; lack of worth is holding you back. At some point in your life, someone said or did something to you that caused you to lose or feel something about yourself. Maybe you simply witnessed something, but it affected you more than you realized.
I find that most emotional damage that leads to counter-intentional mindset stems from two different types of experience:
- Passive Experience
Coming from a family that didn’t express emotions and made a habit of throwing feelings under the rug, I can tell you that shit adds up over time. I was never taught how to work through emotional situations or how to understand the feelings that accompanied them.
I witnessed my parents’ struggles and pain but, as a child, I didn’t understand what was going on and, at times, I felt like it was somehow my fault. How could you be affected by this?
You could begin to believe that what you feel doesn’t matter. I’ve had clients point out that they have had no trauma and life was “normal” so they should have nothing “wrong” with them. For one, nothing is ever wrong with you, you’ve always done the best you could with what you had, and so did everyone who has done onto you. They were battling their own wars.
But more importantly, this passive experience that likely took years to develop created a mindset of “my feelings don’t matter”.
- Traumatic Experience
A traumatic example is when someone has endured sexual assault or physical/verbal abuse. Often, children will respond one of two ways to these experiences. They will either shut down, showing little to no affection or emotions, or do just the opposite by acting out on emotions and affections in more extreme ways such as becoming promiscuous or rebellious, etc. We become products of our environments, but the key is not allowing them to define us.
Regardless of how you picked-up your limiting beliefs, you didn’t get those thoughts in your head overnight. That’s years of programming going on in there. Years of habits and years of coping mechanisms employed. In order to make manifesting easy, you must reprogram your mind to support what you want to call in.
Regaining control of that brain of yours is step one. Reprogram one thought at a time. Deliver to yourself one ounce of truth at a time to slowly awaken and remove the layers to reveal what’s deep within.
