I have been wanting (and preparing) to write about this topic for a long time.
When manifesting, many are hit over the head with the thoughts of what could go wrong, fears of everything falling to pieces or the dread of never even manifesting their desired realities in the first place. (Or, if you’re similar to who I used to be, fear of manifesting and realizing that yet again, what you asked for and received is something you’re already bored with… Again.) They may start to suffer from their minds going haywire, thinking of absurd scenarios of what could go wrong, what could be happening at any given moment and fearing those thoughts at the same time, because what if they actually end up manifesting!?
On the other hand, one may experience freaky predictions of specific, amazing events that are about to happen whenever a manifestation is flowing smoothly. They may predict the events which they seemingly had nothing to do with.
I attribute all of the above to knowing the difference between intuition and paranoia.
Intuition, in my opinion, lies in reading energy – this sounds very vague (or redefining) but let me explain. To me, intuition can mean reading someone’s energy, observing it from the outside, without trying to direct it towards yourself. Intuition can be fun for practicing the power of perception without tampering with someone’s energy, seeing others for who they are or at least, who they think they are. When it comes to yourself, intuition can mean knowing what you want or what you might want later on but also knowing what could possibly change your mind. It means having that feeling of the specific action you wish to take, feeling that a specific person could make you happy, knowing what you want or knowing what you wish to experience. Sometimes, it means being courageous enough to listen to your inner feeling telling you what you’re attracting right now, without sugarcoating, so that you could reassess what you wish to experience.
Have you ever known exactly what to say to friend in order to help them, your perfect piece of advice worked flawlessly and they were beyond grateful to you for saying the right thing? You knew exactly what would reach them. That is intuition!
A strong intuition comes from knowing yourself.
We bring all paranoia upon ourselves. Thinking of what could go wrong, fearing an unhappy future, drowning in feelings of inadequacy, falling victim to the influence of the media or fearing that the past is about to repeat itself may lead to creating an outrageous scenario in one’s mind, completely blocking them from manifesting their desires. Paranoia easily happens when one holds focus on the external world rather than their internal one from which their reality is constantly being created. Allowing the external to melt with the internal will still create one’s life from their internal feelings, with no one but themselves to blame after manifesting a jumbled up reality or simply standing still in the existing one. I believe that more individuals end up standing still in their existing reality rather than manifesting something new and undesired, as our habits tend to powerfully dictate our feelings.
When paranoia happens, our bodies are tense. We know that our way of thinking is making us unhappy yet we continue to entertain it. Many times, we even know that this is paranoia, as our deepest feelings dictate the direction of the Law of Attraction in our lives yet we still continue to entertain them! Or, at least, we feel that we can do nothing to stop them yet become desperate to. However, that desperation creates even more desperation, even if the events envisioned are truly only happening in our minds. We know that the only way is to simply stop paying attention to those negative thoughts whenever they appear yet we allow them to emotionally rattle us. This concept reads absolutely ridiculous – why would anyone want to do that to themselves? – yet achieving an emotionless state about any negative thought can be easier said than done.
Experiencing paranoia automatically means one isn’t open to receiving their desired reality. Entertaining their minds by attaching feelings to their paranoid thoughts means one is choosing resistance over happiness. And what for? To keep things just as they are in life? Then, why consciously manifest something new? Deciding to be open to receiving your desire is the first step. Yes, deciding. Deciding that your conscious thoughts are your new creation center is the second. With love, focus and persistence, one can change their beliefs. Why be a victim to your own mind? It’s supposed to be serving you and even following your heart. So, why allow it to be the leading force in your life?
Harnessing the amazing energy of the Universe is only worth it in order to manifest your desired reality. Open your heart to it, to the world and to receiving it. Open your heart to yourself, your mind and to already being the person you wish to be. Nothing can derail your focus unless you choose to allow it.
All the power you need is in your hands and all the love you need is already in your heart.
