5 Reasons We Don't Get What We Want – Part IV

The past few blog articles have been the beginning of this series in which we have discussed how daily rituals, like those found in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook, can help us stay connected with the Universe and higher beings to become co-creators in getting what we want in life. Master teachers have taught the principle for ages that you need only ask the Universe and prepare yourself to receive as it delivers. There are 5 main reasons that we've identified that people aren't able to follow this simple principle and get all that they want.  Three of these reasons we covered in depth in the first 3 parts of this series. Here we will explore another of those reasons, "Negativity is Popular". In the next article we will cover the last reason and then turn it over to you to see what you think. You'll also have a chance to receive a magical gift from us for putting in your two cents.

As a reminder, the top 5 reasons we've identified are:
1. We Don't Believe We Can Be, Do, and Have Everything We Want
2. Negativity is Popular
3. We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
4. We Are Afraid of Failure
5. We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."

Negativity is Popular

Your first reaction to this may be, "What!? I'm not attracted to negativity!" But think about what sells in our society. You occasionally see a nice human interest story on the news, but most of it is all about the negative things going on. Same with movies, TV shows and workplace gossip. All these things that attract people and their attention are in the negative realms. If you have studied metaphysical principles then you are probably familiar with the one that says we attract to our lives that which we focus on and put our attention towards. Our thoughts and feelings (negative and positive) attract the people and events that we have in our lives. The simple solution therefore would be to only have positive thoughts and feelings and only attract positive things, right? There's where the problem lies. Since we are surrounded by negative influences and perhaps even ridiculed as being a Pollyanna if we don't join in, it is difficult to stay in a positive space. We may not even be consciously aware of all the negativity that surrounds us since it is so prevalent that we have just grown accustomed to it.

The Good News

Luckily we can use daily rituals to move ourselves away from negative influences and attract people and events that have the same positive outlook that we embrace. Doing daily rituals can give us the courage and confidence to be in the positive flow of consciousness instead of a negative one. Being in this state also nourishes the part of us that can remember our dreams and feel in alignment with them. Putting in a little time every day to connect with the Universe and higher beings will go a long way towards being able to stay in a positive frame and give up the addiction to negativity.

5 Reasons We Don't Get What We Want – Part III

In Part I and Part II of this series we discussed how daily rituals, like those found in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook, can help us connect with the Universe and higher beings to create manifestations of everything we want in life. This magical truth has been taught by master teachers for ages and it's all about simply asking the Universe and preparing ourselves to receive the delivery. We've identified 5 main reasons however that people aren't able to follow this simple recipe for getting everything they want and covered two of them in depth. Here in Part III of the series we explore another of those reasons, "We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life".

As a reminder, the top 5 reasons we've identified are:
1. We Don't Believe We Can Be, Do, and Have Everything We Want
2. Negativity is Popular
3. We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
4. We Are Afraid of Failure
5. We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."

Over the next few weeks, we'll explore the other reasons on our list. Then it will be your turn to give some input on what you think about these reasons and have a chance to receive a magical gift from us.

We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
Most people go through life in a pretty mechanical state rather than living in consciousness. We are so hypnotized by our daily lives with our schedules, commitments, to-do lists, etc. that we don't consciously create. Test it out for yourself and take a few minutes first thing in the morning and last thing at night to observe your thoughts. You will probably find they are about what you have to do today, or things that happened to you during the day. The big desires and dreams that you have probably aren't part of those thoughts. We go through our routines, our have-to's and shoulds almost like robots. Have you ever been driving to work and suddenly realize you are there without remembering the drive hardly at all. Talk about mechanical and robotic!

The Magical Solution
Taking the time to make daily rituals a priority in our lives allow us to create contact with Spirit and keep that contact going all day. Spirit is the keeper of our dreams, desires and lessons we came to Earth in physical bodies to learn. That part of ourselves that stays in touch with our spirit path and goes through our lives daily with purpose and meaning needs to be nurtured. Daily rituals don't have to be real time consuming or complicated and making them a priority allows us to break out of the mechanical state and become Spirit-led and achieve our dreams. You can magically break out of the hypnotic state of life, live more consciously and become a co-creator with the Universe to get everything you want.

5 Reasons We Don't Get What We Want – Part II

In Part I of this series we discussed how it is a magical truth that you can be, do and have everything you want in life and how this is not new information as it has been a subject master teachers all around the world have being teaching for ages. Just asking the Universe can help you get it all. Just like you place your order in a restaurant, you enter this great magical café, select what you want from the menu of infinite possibilities, place your order and the Universe delivers. We started exploring the reasons we don't all do this in the last article and of course the first thing is that you have to get yourself to the "restaurant" and second make yourself ready to receive. Daily rituals are a great way to get yourself to the "restaurant". Daily rituals are small planned actions that connect us with what we want in life and put us in the energetic space to be able to receive. Daily rituals can help you release pain, start the day and end the day in a magical way, get help from higher powers and beings, and access knowledge from the Universe. You'll find a wide variety of these in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook.

Reasons We Don't Get What We Want

As we cover in our Daily Rituals ebook, we have identified 5 reasons that prevent people from getting those things they want. These are all conditions that can interfere with bringing manifestations to fruition and block us from receiving from the Universe. We took an in-depth look at the number 5 reason in Part I of this series. In this article we'll cover number 4 and over the next few weeks, stay tuned as we explore the other reasons. Then it will be your turn to give some input on what you think about these reasons and have a chance to receive a magical gift from us.

The 5 top reasons we don't get what we want are:

1. We Don't Believe We Can Be, Do, and Have Everything We Want
2. Negativity is Popular
3. We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
4. We Are Afraid of Failure
5. We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."

We Are Afraid of Failure
Most of us in this day and age are not taught how to attract what we want or how to manifest our desires. We don't learn these things in school growing up and it's not something most parents teach their children. Therefore we don't get a lot of practice and are often unsure how to proceed. This quite often leads to failure and when we don't see results of getting those things we want delivered to us, we tend to give up and just accept what comes. We have been taught that failure is something to avoid so we quite often don't even try again.

The Magical Truth
The magical truth is that we are always co-creating with the Universe and never fail. Humans are born to create constantly. We don't always create those things that we want, but we are always creating. There are a variety of conditions that can interfere with the delivery of the things we want to attract, but more often than not we do create what we want. We just often don't have the patience to wait for it and have moved on to something else by the time it arrives. In that case we don't give the recognition and gratitude or even consciously see our creative efforts.

Daily rituals are a good way to make the creative process more conscious and allow us to see the connections between what we ask for and what we get. Being consciously aware of creating our manifestations and our co-creations with the Universe, we gain confidence in these abilities. So pull those old dreams and desires you gave up on long ago out of the attic, dust them off, and learn how to consciously engage to make those dreams a reality.

5 Reasons We Don't Get What We Want – Part I

It is a magical truth that you can be, do and have everything you want in life. This has been a subject master teachers all around the world have being teaching for ages. To get it all you only have to ask the Universe and it will deliver. It's like being in a great magical café. You select what you want from the menu of infinite possibilities, place your order and the Universe delivers. So why aren't we all doing this? You first have to get yourself to the "restaurant" and second make yourself ready to receive. One way to enter the "restaurant" is by doing daily rituals. These are small planned actions that connect us with what we want in life and puts us in the energetic space to be able to receive. Daily rituals can help you release pain, start the day and end the day in a magical way, get help from higher powers and beings, and access knowledge from the Universe. You'll find a wide variety of these in our Daily Rituals for Attracting What You Want in Life ebook.

Reasons We Don't Get What We Want
As we cover in our Daily Rituals ebook, we have identified 5 reasons that prevent people from getting those things they want. These are all conditions that can interfere with bringing manifestations to fruition and block us from receiving from the Universe. In this article we'll cover one of these in depth and over the next few weeks, stay tuned as we explore the other reasons. Then it will be your turn to chime in on what you think about these reasons and have a chance to receive a magical gift from us.

The 5 top reasons we don't get what we want are:
1. We Don't Believe We Can Be, Do, and Have Everything We Want
2. Negativity is Popular
3. We Are Hypnotized by Daily Life
4. We Are Afraid of Failure
5. We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."

We Think We Have to "Make it Happen."
Let's start at the bottom of the list and explore number 5 – We think we have to "make it happen". We start learning as children that we have to DO in order to succeed. We are encouraged to get good grades in school so that we can qualify for a good college and end up getting a good job which will lead to happily ever after. We are told that "if you want something done right you have to do it yourself", or "keep your nose to the grindstone" or "you've got to pull yourself up by your bootstraps" or "no pain, no gain" and a plethora of other phrases and clichés meant to motivate us. Of course there are some things in life that we have to make happen for ourselves, but the magical reality is that not everything in life has to be so hard. Having to make everything happen all by ourselves is a hard way to approach life and can be exhausting and stressful. With this attitude, many things don't happen because we just can't get to them all or they are too hard and we just stop trying.

An easier approach to life involves creating with help from the Universe and all it costs is appreciation, gratitude and belief. There is a Universal helper in the form of an angel, guide, totem and many other spiritual beings for just about everything you could want. These beings are ready and willing to help you get those things you want like a new job, a new mate, or any life change, all you have to do is ask. That is where daily rituals come in. They remind us that all we need do is the asking, then to step back and let the Universe do the delivering. We really don't have to do it all by ourselves and life can be fuller and easier letting go of the control and micro-managing by letting the Universe do its part.

Tired of fighting uphill battles and having to make everything happen on your own? Then consider changing this number 5 reason that you don't get everything you want. What do you have to lose by giving it a try co-creating with the Universe? If you decide you just can't relax and let the Universe deliver what you want, you can always go back to your old ways. But once you truly let magic into your life and see how different it can be having spiritual helpers in your life, we bet you won't want to go back.

Choose a Magical Price for Faster Manifestation

If you are a fan of the TV show "Once Upon a Time", then you are familiar with the characters often stating that magic comes with a price. They are more often than not referring to the fact that you have to be careful what you ask for so that you don't receive some type of backlash for breaking Universal laws that govern magical practice. This applies too in the real world of real magic. In the world of real magic, many people also believe magic must come with a price and that there must be some type of payment to compensate the Universe for it to work on our manifestations. Since we live on a planet where virtually nothing is free, our minds tell us that the Universe must demand a price for the gifts and benefits it bestows on us. When it comes to getting something we want, our minds follow this thought process:
  1. I would love to have X (something I don't have and feel is beyond my current reach)
  2. I can't afford X
  3. Darn! Forget about X
The Nothing Is Free Mentality
The truth is that the Universe doesn't work that way and does not demand a price from us. The Universe and its angelic and other spiritual helpers operates on a larger and grander scale than we do on Earth. What we consider a miracle is just an everyday occurrence to them. It doesn't consider demanding a price from us anymore than we would demand a price for holding a door open for someone with their hands full of packages. Most humans though continue to believe that the Universe must extract a price for miracles it delivers. Think about someone who bargains with their Higher Power making promises of what they will do or not do if he/she will just deliver a certain miracle or manifestation. Overcoming this belief is not an easy undertaking, so the alternative we suggest is to go around the belief instead.

Naming Your Price
One way to get around the "nothing is free" belief is to name your own price. Since the Universe doesn't really need to be paid, but we can't get mind to believe that is true, naming your own price is a good way to compromise. By naming your own price, you'll probably pick something you can afford and the Universe gets a giggle at our performance. As the Hopis say we are here to "sound a joyous note to Creator's ear" and giving the Universe a giggle is a joyous note. When naming your own price here are a few things to consider:

1. Money - The price doesn't have to be money. The Universe doesn't really have any use for money. That is a human concept. Your price could involve money if you wanted to donate to charity or something along that line, but it does not HAVE to be money and may be best if it is not. Just the mere mention of money often makes people feel anxious, stressed, angry, regretful or a slew of other negative type emotions. For that reason it is probably best just to keep money out of it.

2. Sacrifice – You could pick a price that includes sacrificing something you don't really need. That could mean getting rid of possessions which could create more sacred space in your life or it could mean getting rid of emotional states like anger, impatience, doubt, fear or any type of negative energies that interfere with your life. The same could apply to negative thoughts that you continually have. Sacrificing a thought means replacing it with something else. Instead of allowing your mind to repeat negative thoughts over and over, stop and change to a positive thought. Sometimes this process means you have to just start with a simple "I am willing to be willing to think a more positive thought" instead of jumping right to the positive thought itself. The same process works for dealing with negative emotions.

3. Mutual Benefit –
You could pick a price that will have benefit for you and for another person by being of service to them. This "paying it forward" philosophy can have a lot of great benefits and satisfy your mind by letting it believe you have made your payment and are now ready and deserving to receive your gift from the Universe. Acts of service could be those where you do something for someone and you don't tell anyone what you have done or that you have done anything at all. It doesn't have to be a big thing that you do however. It could be that you send blessings to someone you pass on the street that looks like they are having a bad day. Maybe you just hold the door for someone else or give them a flower from your garden. It could be even something as simple as letting a comment go by that you would normally argue with or taking off work early to spend some extra time with your family.

It doesn't matter what price you select, large or small, because after all it is your choice. You don't want to make a price so high that you avoid it or it sets you up for failure, so give a little thought to what is reasonable and that you will feel satisfied with. Remember it's all for you because the Universe really doesn't demand the price. No matter what you pick, if it helps put you in a better space for being able to receive from the Universe then the price is well worth it.
