Allow yourself to receive.

Life gives birth to desire.  It is our wanting that creates expansion.  We are here to focus our energy toward something.  Being able to create through thought, through our imagination, is a gift.  People die when they no longer want anything.  Without a reason to create, we lose our desire to keep living.  Life would not continue to evolve and new things would no longer be created without desire.  It is our desire for something better that creates new ways of doing things, traveling, and communicating with each other.  Without wanting, we wouldn’t have made the advances in technology that we’ve made. 

When I use the word “want”, I am referring to a desire that I want to focus upon so that source energy can flow through me and bring it into my experience.  For some people, the word “want” has a negative connotation because they associate it with a feeling of discomfort.  They want but don’t believe they can attain their desire, and therefore it’s an uncomfortable yearning.  Some of us may remember wanting something in the past that we didn’t end up getting, and so we are discouraged immediately.  We may try to tell ourselves that we don’t really want it, but we can’t help wanting something.  It’s our fear that we won’t get what we want that makes wanting feel like too great of a risk.

It’s not the wanting that's the problem.  The problem lies in our getting upset that we don’t have it, and becoming so attached to our desire that we constantly worry we won’t get it, that we end up holding ourselves apart from it.  Our fear can be so strong, because we want it so badly, that we don’t allow it to manifest.  If we would just enjoy the process of wanting something, knowing that the universe heard our wish, we would get what we want.  Everything you want can and will be yours if you will relax and know that it’s coming instead of constantly worrying it won’t.  Do not use your immediate reality to tell you whether or not it is coming.  Trust and use your imagination to imagine you already have what you want.  

Be satisfied where you are now and eager for more.  Appreciating where you are and what you’ve learned, while at the same time excitedly awaiting what’s coming next, puts you in the perfect place of allowing what you want to come.  Be specific but also general by not worrying too much about the details.  Think about what you want and why you want it.  Don’t worry about how, where, and when it’s going to come because that creates resistance and unease within you.  Hold onto the general feeling of what you want and trust that the universe is bringing it to you in the best possible way.

Affirmations for allowing what you want to come:

“I am enjoying the process of figuring out what I like and what I don’t like because it's helping me to create exactly what I want.”

“I am attracting my desires to me and I am excited when the evidence of their manifestation shows itself to me.” 

“I am perfect where I am and I am moving toward something that will satisfy me even more.”

“I am right on track and everything is unfolding perfectly for me at the right time."

In love and light,
