I have made a step back and I need to get 'back on the saddle.' How do I keep my faith and not waver from my intention when firstly, this has happened and lastly I can't see a way of getting back to my original intention.
I look at it this way: things manifest instantly on an energetic level, but it takes time for that energy to translate into your physical reality.
That means that when you start consciously intending for something new and better, you've still got a lot of old intentions in the works. They've built up momentum, so despite your shiny, new intentions they will still manifest.
And I swear that the force of the new, conscious, focused intentions seems to push that manifestation into being even faster--it's like they give the old, unconscious intentions a huge push from behind in order to get them out of the way! So it's not at all uncommon for things to go to hell for a while when you first start putting a lot of conscious energy into manifesting something better. Manifest for money? You'll lose some, at first. Manifest for a new house? Your old one will start falling down around your head.
The best way to deal with it, in my experience, has been to recognize it as unfinished business that has to be cleared away, and ride it out. Don't panic, don't despair, and don't let go of your new intention. If you can find a way to laugh at the crazy circumstances you're in, do. I like to look at what's happening and ask, "What thinking brought that
into being?"--because once I've identified those old beliefs, I can more effectively over-write them with something better. So when I have this kind of experience, I thank it for what it's teaching me.
