When I first started on my deliberate manifestation journey, it stressed me out to learn that my thoughts and beliefs were what created my reality. Why? Because I felt I wasn't in control of my thoughts and it seemed the harder I tried to control my thoughts, the more stressed I became.
The truth is, thoughts cannot be controlled. At times, thoughts like "I'm not good enough" or "I'll never succeed" or questions like. "Why can't I figure this out?" just pop up and there is not a thing we can do about it. What's even worse is that it seems the more we try to resist our thoughts, the more persistent they become. So what do we do about this conundrum when thoughts really do create our reality and create form?
First, allow the thoughts and feelings to surface. Don't resist them. This is because whatever we resist persists.
Second, acknowledge the thought for what it is, just a thought. Just because it's a thought in your head doesn't mean it's true. In fact, most of our thoughts aren't true at all. We get in trouble when we believe in them and hold them as the truth.
Third, choose a better thought. You might not be able to pull a 180 and believe in the opposite thought. But you can soften the initial thought by introducing a softer thought. For example, if your initial thought is "I'm not good enough," instead of stating "Yes I am!!!" (which you probably won't believe any way), say something like, "I might not feel good enough, but that doesn't mean it's true."
Fourth, get curious. Once you have softened the thought, you can take it a step further by getting curious. "Huh that's an interesting thought. Where did that thought come from? Who gets to decide whether or not I am good enough any way? I might not feel good enough, but is there a way I can start to feel good enough? Now that I am thinking about it, what would feeling good enough actually feel like?"
Many who suffer from the not-good-enough syndrome have never imagined what feeling good enough truly feels like. This is because our minds have come to the conclusion that we aren't good enough, and in so doing, our mind stops searching for answers. We buy into the belief that we really aren't good enough and then we try to bury that thought with shame.
By questioning the conclusion and introducing other ideas, thoughts, and questions, we make it possible for our minds to search again and come to a different conclusion, one that benefits us rather than harms us.
Once we have opened up the door to other thought options, we can choose different thoughts, which if repeated often enough, become new conclusions, AKA, new beliefs. Once you have repeated a thought often enough, it feels natural to you and it becomes a new conclusion. This is when we effortlessly begin to manifest what we want.
By continually molding our thoughts in the direction we want, we leverage the power to create a new reality.
