Soulmate love, a new career, financial abundance, no matter what your dream goals, they are achievable, although you may need to adjust how you think to make them your reality. Many people know what they want, but no matter how much they try, they cannot seem to manifest what they dream of.
In my work as an intuitive reader, I have the unique opportunity to look into people’s energy and read what they are running at the deeper levels of the mind, their subconscious patterns. If you want to manifest your dream goals, you must understand your patterns and work on shifting them to something that is in alignment with your goals.
Your Thoughts Form Your Mindset
The way you habitually think creates your mindset. Your mindset shapes how you view the world, and this, in turn, affects what comes into your life and how you react to it.
For example, if you want to manifest new love or financial abundance, but never make any changes to your mindset, what typically happens is more of the same. With no shifts in how you think it doesn’t allow the space to open for something new to move in.
Your mindset is connected to your patterns, they are intrinsically linked. Thoughts create your mindset. Patterns, mainly subconscious, are running in the background and perpetuate thoughts and therefore maintain your current mindset.
Behind the Scenes, Patterns Run the Show
Patterns are deep-rooted beliefs that were formed in childhood, and sometimes even in past lifetimes. Patterns are a lot like weeds in a garden. You want to pull them up by their roots, or else they will continue to get more problematic.
If you want to experience new love, but are running a pattern of unworthiness, the pattern cancels out the goal. If you want to experience financial abundance but are running a scarcity pattern, or have a vow of poverty from another lifetime, these patterns cancel out the goal.
Limiting patterns can keep you locked in place and cause you to miss opportunities that otherwise would help you achieve your goals. This is why it’s so important to work on seeing your patterns and shifting them.
How to Identify and Change Patterns in Three Steps
1. Observe Your Thoughts - The first step is to become aware of your thoughts. While that may seem obvious, the idea is to get in the habit of paying attention to your thoughts more than you are accustomed to.
Through observation, notice the thoughts that frequent your mind, and pay attention to how they make you feel. Are they uplifting, or limiting? Most people think a variety of thoughts but what you are looking for is which type you think more of, the uplifting kind or the negative kind.
2. Observe Your Words - Once you have observed your thoughts, start observing your words as well. They are a direct connection to your thoughts and bring the thought out into manifest form. As such, they carry a lot of power, words are directed energy. Note the feeling you get when speaking certain words - what emotion(s) do the words represent?
What is behind the words, thoughts and feelings are your patterns. If you want to attract love but are running an unworthy pattern it can exclude you from experiencing the joyful connections you wish to have with others. If you wish to experience financial abundance but are running a scarcity pattern, it puts abundance just out of reach, and that can go for abundance in finances as well as health, love, or anything else you desire.
3. Replace the old with the new - To break the pattern you must observe yourself in action, thinking the thoughts, saying the words. When you catch yourself, stop, and replace the thought or words with something else.
Example: You observe yourself thinking/speaking/feeling annoyed after hearing news of a friend getting engaged. The next step is to replace the annoyance with something neutral. Think about how that couple has the chance to work on lessons together, maybe they are healing past life wounds, or supporting one another’s life purpose.
You meanwhile, have the power to attract what you want, and if it is to be engaged, then seeing this happy couple can be a motivator for you. You can have this too, and with someone that fits your unique path. By becoming aware of your response, in this example, annoyance, which masks a pattern of unworthiness, you can break the cycle of the pattern.
With conscious observation, you can heal any limiting patterns and develop a new mindset that reflects the life you want to live. This is the work your soul came here to do, lasting, healing, uplifting changes that help you achieve your soul’s goals.
Any dream goal you have is coming from your soul, it resonates with who you are on your highest levels. By taking the time to focus on what you are putting out there, you can shift and heal in ways that allow your most desired dream goals to become your reality. Start small, build, be consistent, you can do it!
