“The speed at which the Law of Attraction manifests your desire is in direct proportion to how much you are Allowing,” writes Michael Losier, in what I call my Manifesto for Attracting Abundance.

It’s true that we are our own worst enemy. Our “self-limiting beliefs” create doubt. Doubt is our resistance to allowing the universe to bring us our desires. When we remove doubt, we clear the path to abundance. Conversely, believing is the absence of doubt, as is faith.

Let me be a little more specific. Take a good look at the phrase, “but I can’t because…” No matter what you have said or thought prior to that phrase, you have just wiped out any possibility that you can achieve that goal.

“I’d love to write a book, but I can’t because….” and then we fill in all sorts of “reasons” or “excuses” why our heart’s desire cannot manifest. The Universe, the Law of Attraction, will work to create that which we truly believe. If you believe you can’t write a book because a) you have no time, b) you aren’t good with words, c) you never went to college, d) nobody would buy it anyway, e) you wouldn’t know where to start, f) you’re too old, etc, etc, then of course the Universe accepts that you BELIEVE these things to be true, and it ceases to create the conditions for you to achieve your “desire” right there.

On the other hand, if you say “Thousands of people on this planet who are busier, less educated, and older than I am write books…” then you have begun to believe that you can do it too.

What is your heart’s desire? What are the self-limiting beliefs holding you back?

For more information, I recommend Michael Losier’s book, “The Law of Attraction: The Science of Attracting More of What you Want, and Less of What You Don’t.”

So I ask you again, what do you want?
