5 Clues For My LOA-Newbie Self
About 15 years ago I had my first intro to conscious creation, compliments of a book by Adrian Calabrese I read by “accident.”
Countless books, seminars, coaches, and LOA experiments later, it’s safe to say I’ve been around the manifesting block a time or two.
Knowing what I know now, here are five clues I would give myself in those early days:
1. Don’t freak out.
Yes, you are changing reality with your thoughts. Don’t trip out too hard and let yourself get paralyzed by that info. It’s gonna be fine.
This is no time to start worrying about every little negative thought you have or wondering if you’re the reason all that bad stuff happened.
Chill out, start with where you’re at and you’ll get the hang of it soon enough.
2. Keep it to yourself.
Just because you’re excited about this stuff doesn’t mean everyone else is, too. Don’t let them spoil your good time. Keep playing, and your like-minded friends will be along soon enough.
(They’re worth the wait!)
Also, it’s not a bad idea to keep your big dream to yourself until it’s got enough momentum to carry you through. Because other people aren’t necessarily going to get that, either.
3. It might not make sense.
When inspiration speaks, you might not understand how it plays into the bigger picture. That’s okay. Trust it anyway.
Don’t expect logical or rational impulses. They don’t always – or even often – work that way.
4. Don’t look too hard for results.
I know you want to prove this stuff really works (and that you know how to work it), but if you get all wound up about getting results, that doesn’t actually help.
Relax a little on the scorekeeping, and celebrate the wins as they come. You’ll find lots more of them unfolding that way.
5. Remember the point.
Learning to manipulate reality so you can feel better is still sort of bass ackwards.
The point is just to feel better. Period.
Reality follows nicely when you just decide to get happy and feel good. It really is that simple.
How about you? You’re a savvy creator who’s likely learned a few things you’d like to pass along to shorten someone else’s learning curve.
What advice would you give your beginning manifesting self?
We’d love to hear it!
