When we increase our income and manifest more money into our lives, we are going to go through discomfort. It’s inevitable. Growth and expansion won’t happen if we just keep doing what we’ve always done. But taking new action means heading into the unknown.
The actions we currently take, every day, have “known” consequences. They may not be the greatest consequences! In fact, what we are currently doing to create money may be creating rather crappy financial consequences! But at least we know what those consequences are … and the ego likes that.
Staying in the known is considered “safe” by the ego. But now we get ready to step out of our comfort zone and create more money. Now all kinds of alarm bells and red alert signals go off within the ego, and we experience a storm of fear and self-doubt. We procrastinate, we allow ourselves to be distracted. We often find fifteen things to do that are more important and more pressing than the new actions that might actually create more money for us.
This IS going to happen. If you want to create more money, there is no way around egoic discomfort and resistance. I wish I had a magical antidote to egoic resistance … quite frankly, I’d like one myself! Because no matter where you are financially, egoic resistance happens at every level.
In our spiritual community, we unfortunately have a tendency to view any negative emotion such as fear and self-doubt as if there’s something “wrong.”
After all, feeling fear isn’t very “spiritual.” Shouldn’t we be “more enlightened” than that? Shouldn’t we evolve beyond fear?
Not accepting fear as a normal part of expansion actually makes our situation worse. After all, we have in our spiritual tool box all kinds of ways to make ourselves feel better, right? Maybe we use some energetic technique to “clear” our fear. Or we use EFT and try to tap it away. Or we meditate until we feel better.
And it works! Now we feel better! But what have we done? We’ve focused on feeling better. That’s where we’ve invested our energy. The fear is gone … but have we taken productive action towards our financial goal? Most likely, no.
Now that we feel better, we decide we’re ready to try again to create our new financial reality … and guess what? Again the fear comes, and again we use our spiritual tool box to make ourselves feel better. And again, we don’t take productive action. We tell ourselves we’ll take action … once we feel better. I’ve seen people stuck in this loop for years!
New results are not going to happen without new action. New action WILL create a fear storm and a ton of egoic resistance. There is NO spiritual bypass for this aspect of growth and expansion!
The key is to move THROUGH egoic resistance. There are two things that can help us accomplish this.
The first is this: Imagine that it’s ten years from now, and your financial situation is exactly the same as it is today. Just imagine – now you’re forty or fifty or sixty or seventy years old. And your bank account is the same. Now, if that doesn’t scare you MORE than taking new action .. well, then you don’t want to change your financial reality that badly. And that’s okay. I suggest you acknowledge that you are willing to stay where you are, and enjoy yourself. It’ll save you a lot of time and energy!
Most of us, however, are committed to our spiritual and personal growth … and an expanding bank account is merely a third-dimensional manifestation of that growth. The idea that we could plateau on our path, that there’s a limit to how much of our Divinity we might express, is pretty darn scary!
The other thing that truly helps is having a complete and thorough intellectual understanding of the manifesting process. If I know HOW manifesting works – as a technique, a specific, exact process that contains no guesswork – then I am far more willing to accept the emotional and mental turbulence that happens when we step into greater financial expansion.
There’s no spiritual bypass for the discomfort of egoic resistance. I wish I could give you one, but … it doesn’t exist. But you can give yourself the gift of knowing how the process works. Consciousness and free will can always override fear. The more you know about the technical aspects of manifesting money, the easier dealing with discomfort becomes.
So if you’re ready, come and join me on Saturday, February 18th for a free training call on manifesting money. You can register here.
To your infinite abundance,
