When You Reach Your Allowing Limit

April 30, 2016 | 19 Comments »

the limits of allowingSometimes we conscious creators get frustrated when things go poof right when it looks like our big dream is about to unfold.

Like when:

  • our hot date who seems a lot like Mr. Right – never calls again.
  • or the dream job that we had two fabulous interviews for – gets offered to someone else.
  • or our medical condition clears up and it seems like we’re healed – and symptoms flare up again.

I’ve personally had more close calls and false starts than I care to recount.

While it can be easy to interpret those events as manifesting misses (or even failures), there’s actually a different interpretation that may serve better …

One of Abraham’s hot-seaters recently asked what was up when it looked like everything was coming together, and his big desire was in process of manifesting, and then the rug was pulled out from under him and everything went south.

Abe explained, “You just reached the limits of your allowing.”

It was just as much as you were capable of believing in and receiving. It’s as far as your vibration could take you.

When my coaching practice was fairly new, my newsletter vendor asked if they could spotlight my business to their customers – to show how effective newsletter campaigns can be in growing a business.

(Apparently you guys were opening and sharing my newsletter at ridiculously high rates, and my subscription list was growing dramatically, so Good Vibe Coaching was a powerful success story in their eyes.)

And I thought, “This is it! This is how the world learns about the magic of manifesting and my role in it! This is how Universe answers my request for impacting and inspiring many others!”

I told them I’d be delighted for them to share my statistics publicly!

Their attorneys reached out to get my permission in writing. I happily gave it. They told me my case study would be published soon. I was so excited to have lots of new eyes on my business!

And then … nada. Nothing happened. They never published it and never told me why.

In hindsight I realize that I had done exactly what Abe described: “reached the limits of my allowing.”

It didn’t mean I missed my big chance. It didn’t mean I was a manifesting failure. It didn’t mean it wasn’t meant to be.

It just meant I was still getting the hang of the vibration of my “dream come true,” and had more work to do in becoming a closer match to what I wanted.

It’s actually a pretty exciting sign, when you think about it like that!

It means you’re getting closer. It means your alignment is strong enough that you can get big whiffs of success.

It means you just need a little more expanding in your belief, some stronger expectations, and more acclimation in order to allow it in.

And that sometimes takes a little time and a little practice.

It’s okay. It’s a process!

Don’t give up when things don’t come together after it looked like they were about to. That just means you’re getting closer and that’s all the more reason to continue.

So keep practicing believing in what you want. Continue experiencing your desired reality in your mind’s eye. Stick to inspired actions and do all the things you know to do to acclimate yourself to the reality you want.

When you reach the limits of your allowing, that’s your cue to expand it.

Don’t be discouraged when it’s a near miss – it’s actually a good sign that you’re on the right track! Full steam ahead and it won’t be long before you’re telling your favorite success story ever.

    Dear Jeannette, As always I am expanded and encouraged by your posts. For myself it always comes up to LOA manifesting without expectation, or fear of outcomes. Recently I have been paid to do Metaphysical Readings again, without consciously looking for this. It’s stimulating (both ways) and I am thankful. LOA is my bulwark, my source of liberty, and transcendency. Thank you, Michael

    Oh you nailed this! Thanks for the kick butt reminder it’s a glorious day for creating

    Thank you!
    “It didn’t mean it wasn’t meant to be.”

    I don’t know how many times I have heard people say that . . including me. And it’s not true! Maybe at the TIME, yes, but it doesn’t mwan giving up on it.
    Totally agree on the cue!

    The charmingly eccentric Ophiel called this the “Sphere of Availability”- you might want to live in that giant mansion you occasionally drive by, but you don’t really believe you could, so it’s outside your Sphere. However, one of those new condos just being built, you can believe you could afford that at some point, so it’s within your Sphere. It’s a different flavor of desire, and if you’re not paying attention, subtle and easy to miss.

    • Jeannette says:

      I like that way of describing it, Jen. Thanks for sharing that.

      It’s like our work is to “expand our sphere” to include what we want. Nice visual. 🙂

    This is exactly what I needed to read right now, it gives me a nudge that I’m on the right track.

    I’ve recently had three pretty big synchronistic experiences related to this desire, but have begun doubting myself, because it seems there has been no follow up. But the fact that the three events unfolded as they did (pretty magically!) should be enough to remind me I’m tapping into something extraordinary here, and if it doesn’t unfold as I imagine, the outcome will be even better (and there really are forces ‘out there’ which are paying attention and have my back).

    I also realise that deep down I have a tiny belief that I don’t really deserve my best life, and I’m working on changing this through EFT (tapping) and being mindful of my thoughts. Even though I’ve seen amazing signs of alignment, I sometimes find myself doubting whether such a thing could come true for me, even though I can imagine it so vividly. It’s something I’m working on!

    • Jeannette says:

      Very smart of you, Melissa, to be consciously working on your feelings of worthiness.

      I also the infinite worlds reminder that everything that could happen already is, and it’s all happening right now. So on some level your big dream already exists. 🙂

    I too have had many near misses in my life and career. After awhile I learned to let go of the specific outcome and trust that the universe has my back because it always works out for the best!

  7. Nina says:

    This post came at perfect time for me too!

    I’ve self-published a book in April. I was doing all the promotion and other activities by myself as a learning case. I precisely followed suggestions of successful authors. I hit some best-selling and other ratings on Amazon, including Amazon Hot New Releases, but that didn’t show on the sales at all! I was exhausted and discouraged.

    I knew there is some discord in my thinking, but I wasn’t sure what exactly. Yeah, that was it! I’ve reached the limits of my allowing.

    Thank you, Jeannette!

  8. Dee says:

    Great post, Jeanette. This really has shifted me bc I was so frustrated about something that I’ve been manifesting and then just like that, it stopped in its tracks. There are multiple players in this manifestation so it’s not just my vibe; it’s others but it makes sense now. I can’t wait to share this with the others.

  9. Heather says:

    This is such a great post! Thank you Jeannette. I read it yesterday and let it sink in. 🙂

    I love this:

    This was a MUCH needed read and lesson for me!

    Thank you

    Something that made me really feel calm about being so close but not quite there was in listening to Vishens 15 minute mind hack that is on the GVU home page. He said that people overestimate what they can do in one year but underestimate what they can do in three years.

    I truly love this site! I really needed to read this! Right now I am trying to figure my path and have had some hit and misses…
