There are many different ways in which we can be our own worst enemy. Yesterday we looked at how setting self-imposed limits on the ways in which our supply restricts the flow of blessings. Today we’ll take a look at another way we block the good.
There’s nothing here that hasn’t been covered before, but it is important enough to go over again. Fear, doubt, worry, anger, resentment and other negative emotions can be huge blocks to personal development. They misdirect our power, they distract our focus, and they keep us in a perpetual cycle of negative manifestation.
If you fear a situation, you are directing your thoughts toward it with an emotional charge and will only bring about more of what you fear. The same is true of doubt. The very action of doubt focuses the attention on the negative side of whatever you are thinking about. Ditto for the others. They set up a cycle in which, by focusing your attention and emotion on the negative, you manifest more of the negative, which you in turn focus on again, etc.
Break the cycle by focusing on the solution, not the problem. Find your center, your connection with the Divine. Know that you are directly connected to the Divine by nature of being part of it. Know that the solution is already there and simply waiting on you to align yourself with it.
Take all thought off of need or lack. Focus on supply and abundance. I admit, this is a case of “easier said that done,” at least at first, but it IS possible. The key is gratitude, both for what you already have and for what you are seeking.
Also, release any resentment you may have. Think of where it is directed, whether at another person, a situation, or even yourself, and think positive thoughts about the object of the resentment. Make this a daily practice until you feel peace when that person or situation enters your thoughts. This is a vital step in reaching any degree of peace or happiness.
