We all have these days…you just feel like things are taking so long to come to fruition. I understand how you feel. I know it can be frustrating when you have your life goals and desires you really want in your life- and you really want them now. Why is it taking so long? Why is it so hard? Why do others seem to obtain so easily?
Believe me, I, too, have asked these questions. You see last year during this month I had NO idea I was going to publish a book. I always wanted to write and do something to help others, but I didn’t actually see myself doing it. I was scared. I feared failure. I feared what others would think of me.
Today I am feeling low vibe. I am going to be transparent with you for a moment and disclose something: when I envisioned my book being published, I envisioned thousands of souls all over the world using it to help them manifest their dreams and a better life for themselves! I published at the beginning of January. I have sold hundreds of books, I have received SO MANY success stories from souls all around the world from my book. And today? Today I am feeling sorry for myself because I thought by now, the end of May, my book would have reached MANY more souls around the world. I thought by now I would have had thousands of sales- which means thousands of LIVES are being changed for the way better!
I spent today napping, writing, watching reruns of Big Bang Theory, and just reflecting on why it seems other people can quickly achieve their goals and it’s been almost 6 months since I’ve published and I feel like I am so far behind with my business, Manifest It!, as Journal Girl Jaclyn. These last 2 weeks I have lost email followers, people have dropped out of my free Facebook group, I just feel like I’m totally losing my connection to the souls I really want to help. I work full time for physicists, so I am often feeling like “I don’t have enough time to grow my business”. This is my story I am telling myself, anyway, for the reason why I am moving at a turtle-like pace these past few months.
This is where I know I am human: I am comparing myself and my own success to other people. We all have ups and downs, we are human after all. I received another 5-star review on Amazon today and it totally lifted my spirits! I am truly thankful to be able to help the hundreds of people I have helped so far. So why am I so melancholy?
I am trying to control everything again…I cannot do this because this only pushes the manifestations further away. I’m telling you all of this because I learned last year that you CANNOT try to control your surroundings, or your environment. You cannot and should not try to FORCE anything. And we ALL have gifts that influence the world, we cannot and should not compare ourselves to other people’s success.
When you have a low vibe day like this it is important to remember and remind yourself of ALL of your blessings- even the small ones like that yummy piece of chocolate.
So this is what I asked myself today during my Mastering Your Mindset journaling:
1) Why do I feel so sad?
2) What has happened in the last year that I am proud of happening?
3) Around this time last year what was I hoping for in my life?
4) Why do I want to manifest what I currently want to manifest?
5) What are my current challenges in overcoming my blocks in order to manifest what I am currently manifesting?
6) What do I love about myself and about my business? What do I love about my life? What do I love about my relationships with others?
7) Feeling the way I do today is only a “story” I am telling myself. Why is it only a “story”? What can I say, think, feel, and do to rebuke my “story”?
Try these out in your mindset journaling and let me know what you come up with, you’ve got this! Remember, everything is temporary, even your own thoughts and feelings. It’s okay to not be okay sometimes; but, don’t allow it to unpack and live within your mindset. Acknowledge your thoughts and feelings, and allow them to pass through you because they are only “stories”.
Focus on the thoughts and feelings that empower you and lift you up. Surround yourself with a support system that elevates you. And most of all, focus on what you DO WANT because the Universe has a special time and a special way for your soul’s highest happiness. It can be hard to realize this sometimes. TRUST the Universe, it IS manifesting exactly what you want. Relax, have fun, and enjoy your soul’s path along the way.
Tomorrow is a new day. Usually having low vibes are followed by wonderful breakthroughs. A wave pulls back before it surges forward. A bow pulls the arrow back before it propels forward. You’ve got this! Keep going!
