Don’t Believe the Hype – Spirituality doesn’t work to a timepiece!
During winning the Game of Fear, John Assaraf demonstrated this lovely graph. It was your standard bell curve graph that showed a 90 day timeline. The graph referenced showed that a habit or programming generally fades into the distance at the end of a 90 day period.
I started my new and positive routine on the 16th of April and here’s the proof.
I work that out to be 189 days! If you guessed that I sound pissed off that I am not living my dream life with my 3 houses, kids financially independent, health 100% excellent, 100% positive, trekking around the world, working from home with my profitable/successful online business – you would have guessed right.
Pissed off might be a bit of an overstatement but I haven’t manifested any of the things that I have been visualising for the last 189 days. In all of the online forums and communities I belong to, I read about people manifesting anything they want instantaneously by applying the things that I have been applying in my life for the past 189 days. It is disheartening. Especially when I hark back to John’s bell curve.
Is there something wrong with me? Am I doing it all wrong? Is manifesting just for other people? Is it time to stop wasting my time?
Back in April, I was doing it all.
- Eddie Sergey’s – 15 Minute Manifestation
- Natalie Ledwell’s – Ultimate Success Masterclass and Mind Movies
- John Assaraf’s – Winning the Game of Fear
- Vishen Lakhiani’s – 6 Phase Meditation from Mind Valley
- Daily affirmations
- On and Off hypnosis with Marissa Peer
What I have learnt is that I can’t do it all at once – or probably shouldn’t. Still not 100% sure because ‘IT’ hasn’t worked yet.
Or has it?
Time to recap. Since April, I have:
- Laughed more
- Seen a significant change in my thinking
- Seen an improvement in my relationship with my daughter
- Reacted to challenging situations in my life a WHOLE lot better
- Been more relaxed
- Felt good about my commitment to my morning routine
- Fought for and got a refund to the value of $4,000 from a merchant who promises at the time of purchase that there is absolutely no chance of a refund post purchase
- Worked from home a LOT more = Had time to earn an income from a job and grow my business
- Had a small win with Lotto
- DECLUTTERED my life
Time to Hunker Down
After a recap and a quick slap to the side of my head, I realise that my ‘demon’ are at it again. Manifesting isn’t about getting ‘stuff’ or instantly being the best person we can be. It’s all about the journey. I know that I keep banging on about it but whenever I catch myself in negative thinking, this is always where I come back to. Dah! Don’t forget – it’s about the bloody journey. And it’s been a helluva ride so far.
What I know is that I enjoy my morning routine (which is now a whole lot simpler) and I am changing. I am absolutely seeing positive results. It may not be the results that I was expecting or wanting but do I care? Not really. I’m enjoying the ride and looking forward to seeing what comes next.
In many of the books that I have read, the point is made that when you are experiencing the negative feelings sometimes associated with the Art of Manifesting – it’s time to hang on with all of your appendages! Keep up the good fight. Keep calm and carry on. Battle on. Keep moving forward. All that good stuff. There is zero value in comparing yourself and your progress to anyone elses!
I firmly believe it! As Wayne Dyer says:
Change the things that you are looking at and the things that you are looking at will change.Wayne Dyer
It has to. It’s the Law.
