So I remember back when I was first involved in a local manifestation support group. Not just Witches, but it was formed after the movie The Secret hit, and all types of people were starting to understand the law of attraction. Which we Witches knew about for years, just used different words and ways for.
Anyways so I was younger when I was in this group and had goals and desires just pouring out of me left and right. But others sometimes seemed to struggle with not knowing what they really wanted. I remember not really understanding how one couldn’t want something . How do people stop having dreams.
As age started catching up with me and having a third child and life and health taking some strange turns, before I knew it I was now the older woman of the group going, omg I don’t know what I want except a nap and maybe new glasses or some new orthopedic shoes lol
I went from creating with Erin back then a Television crew knocking on our door to make a show about us as Witches to barely being able to hold on to my job as a professional witch and having people find me at all.
One thing I have noticed and may help others who due to age or life distractions just wearing you down is first of all, its OK to not care about being famous and gorgeous anymore, I think those two things were the heart of my first years of manifestation, and we did pretty much get there maybe not super famous, but we were well known enough to be stalked !
And I look back at some of the old eBay photos of me and Not to sound egotistical but I was more gorgoues then I knew when I was in full shine connected mode.
But my understanding of beauty has changed over the past ten years and Its just not something that makes my top ten anymore.
Neither is being famous.
The things I crave as a older woman are harder to label, harder to make a actual goal of and most of it I do already have, so hanging on and protection of what I have has become important and I think this is subconsciously what may block some people, change happens, and when we shift to enjoying what we have so much that our desires become protective, we start resisting change. And if your in the mindset of resisting change , it gets a bit tricky to focus on wants, desires and goals , doesn’t it?
The way out I think, is instead of protective resistance is simply gratitude.
We all have heard it so much, but its true. Gratitude is amazing.
When we are grateful instead of clingy protective, its such a different vibe.
Gratitude has a way of bringing back connection to ourselves.
So I say to those facing new years resolutions or trying to make desire lists or vision boards and just not getting far.
Don’t force it.
Make a gratitude list, or board or celebrate the good things of last year, before even trying to co create next year.
And spend some time in the present moment, its really ok to just be where you are , enjoying things.
Your power to manifest is infinite, your not gonna run out of wishes, your not gonna shrivel up because you didn’t make a new years resolution . You still lived and had good times before you knew about the law of attraction or witchcraft etc. You’ve used them consciously now to really make changes etc.
But never be afraid to just run on gratitude and present moment enjoyment.
If you run on auto pilot for awhile as long as gratitude is the energy behind it, you will be fine.
It’s when fear, resistance and anxiety fuel the auto pilot that it gets messy lol
And if that’s where you are it can be hard to switch out of. Gratitude can be that simpler little step. If change is too scarey or confusing to focus on. Simply focus on what is good in your life right now.
It will put you back into sync and flow even if your not sure what you want to create. You’ll be right where you need to be when you eventually do figure it out 🙂
And if nothing else , my personal fall back , is to always wish for joy and well being.
It’s general and if the word joy is too intense to connect too, I’m really a fan of well being. It’s from Esther Hicks Abraham of course . But such a soft soothing safe word.
I dream of my highest well being, comfort, ease, enjoyment, pleasure. And you may not have a image of exactly what any of that looks like, but the words bring about feelings you really just can’t go wrong with!
How’s that for a resolution 🙂
