The other week I talked about the difference between feeling and knowing. When it comes to creating your own reality, I think this difference is the key component. For example, I can say in my head all day, “I am rich, I am rich, I know I am rich,” when inside I still feel like that is not true. That feeling of lack on the inside aligns me with a world that demonstrates lack. When I feel I don’t have enough, everything around me reminds me of that truth. I’ll see people with fancy cars that I don’t think I can buy, or see high price tags and feel like I will never be able to afford expensive items.
Although the disparity between what you want to have, and what you feel you have, can prevent you from manifesting your desired reality, there is a real choice when it comes to how you feel. In this video Dr. Wayne Dyer talks to Oprah on Super Soul Sunday about how to manifest your dreams by coming into alignment with them. When you decide to feel abundant, grateful, and peaceful, you are in alignment with all that is created out of abundance. When you feel peace inside, you attract more peace. When you feel infinitely whole and abundant on the inside, you will attract wholeness and abundance into your life. Wishing for a new car, when you feel like you’ll never afford it, will keep that wish unfulfilled. So if you want a new car, or whatever it is you’re believing for, start by simply telling yourself that you are everything you will ever need. Tell yourself you already have everything you could ever want, residing within you. Suspend your disbelief long enough to feel like the world has more than enough for you and everyone in it. Bask in that feeling of abundance and gratitude. The consequence of such a feeling is seeing that reality manifest in your life.
