A major block that most likely all of us have to a greater or lesser degree is fear. Fear at its worst, can paralyze us. We may need to address an issue or we want to bring something into our lives but we start to fear it won`t happen or we may even fear the change that what we want will bring. If you wish to meet new friends then you might begin to worry about experimenting with meeting new people or going to groups where you might meet people because this makes you nervous. Maybe you think you are safer with your old friends and then stay where you are. You have missed the chance to meet new people that share your new interests and who may offer you wonderful new ways of looking at things.
In psychology studies it is well known that the fear factor can make you behave differently to your calmer self. Let`s say you are desperate to impress your boss. You become obsessed with performing a certain task perfectly because if you don`t your boss might think less of you. You might think of what could go wrong and work to prevent any chance of failure. This builds up stress within you and you make mistakes so the quality of your performance is less.
Contrast this with if you believed beyond a doubt you could deliver a quality performance and don`t fear failure you could relax more.If you even believed that if your performance didn`t go to plan your boss would still be impressed you would relax more. You might even enjoy the experience. Then the power of manifesting abundance would come into play, you believe you will get what you want, which is ultimately the approval of your boss, and so you do.
I saw a film at the weekend that reminded me of this. The film is called The Finest Hours. It`s a true story of a group of lifesavers who head out to help a ship that has been caught in a strong, powerful storm. The lifesaving crew made it through massive waves that towered above the massive ship and managed to reach the ship. The lifesaving boat was small and the crew of the ship was a large amount of people to fit into the boat. he men managed to fit into the small boat. The captain of the boat lost contact with the shore and his compass stopped working. He told the men to believe they would get to shore. The captain believed that he would see signs that would guide them to the shore. Back at the shore the people living in the area drove their cars to the shore and turned on all the lights of their cars. This formed a bright line of light that the crew could see from the sea and guided them all back to the shore and to safety. This is a true story and, for me, is the essence of manifesting and living without fear.
