I am currently doing a journal every day where I focus on what I want. I ask myself empowering questions and generally focus my thoughts on what I want. My question is, is this the best way to move my life forward? I am currently focusing on so many different aspects of my life that I am unsure whether all the changes I want to make will come about. Is it best to focus on the most important areas first or does this scatter shot approach generally work too?
One good thing is that this journal puts me in a great mood and helps with the allowing part of manifesting. I have experienced success in some arreas which I have focused on most. Does anyone have any experience with this?
You should probably prioritize. Whatever area you are lacking will draw your attention and focus most, so you could start with that. As long as the intentions are not too all over the place (so that you can take action for multiple intentions), having lots of them probably does not hurt. Even if you can't focus too much on certain intentions, it is probably helpful to create them in your head, write them down in your journal and pay visit to them once in a while to see if there are any opportunities to manifest them.
Another interesting way to look at this is to question where intentions come from after all? I believe all intentions are meant for your growth one way or another. Therefore, whichever of your intentions need more focus for your growth in the now will possibly start manifesting first. So you set your intentions (goals, targets, etc) and see which ones you can take action right now. Also look out for signs to see which ones look like might have a chance to manifest sooner. You will get clues sooner or later to point you in the right direction.
One thing you don't wanna do is get frustrated, run around like a chicken with its head cut off and eventually get yourself stuck. :)
To be honest I am getting pretty frustrated. I have this pattern I see where I feel like I am on the verge of making some massive progress and then I get all depressed and frustrated. I dont know whether its because I am trying to take on too much and getting overwhelmed or whether there is some sort of internal block. I do get this feeling that things would flow better if I was getting it and doing it right.
Recently I have been posing myself all sorts of questions that are supposed to be targetting my internal blocks and focusing my thoughts on what I want. It seemed to be working and i had quite a bit of success in some areas but then I hit this wall where I get all frustrated and feel bad for seamingly no reason. Today I was about to do an exercise where I write out my goals, dig around in my head for my internal blocks and excuses, then deal with them by asking questions that produce answers to the contrary (which I have found to be successful). Thats when my mood dropped massively!
If anyone can relate to that I would love to hear your experiences or advice. Its much appreciated because I'm sick of this pattern.
Emotions are a result of the activities inside your brain. Each one has a special meaning and they are meant to give you feedback as to what is happening now. They are real and I think trying to avoid them is not the most efficient use of them.
Frustration, in my experience, is a sign of change. Change is taking place, but it is not complete yet. If you give up at this stage, change will stop and the pattern you are trying to change will take over again. Take your time, change takes time, but don't give up.
All the best
Thanks a lot for the input Outback. I think I know what it is now.
I have this list of questions and exercise and I do some of them everday. Some of the ones on the list I am very hesitant to do, simply because they dont feel good to do. One in particular that I thought would help me was writing out my negtaive beliefs on a subject stream of conscious style then writing out the opposing, helpful beliefs to get in the proper frame of mind and focus on what you want.
I now realise that you dont have to do this. When you have an intention you only have to deal with the excuses your mind throws at you when you think about what you want. Whatever rises to the surface and prevents you from having that feeling of having it now is a block and can be dealt with right there. It is no wonder I felt overwhelmed - I thought you had to deal with every negative thought stored in my mind (as well as ones the stream of conscious writing made me imagine lol).
The depression and frustration I experience is my mind creating a way for me to stop doing something harmful that I would just plow into doing. I think its like a subconscious way of putting on the brakes and guiding me. Thinking about it, I have had it once before and I realised later that my course of action would have meant me doing something I really wouldnt have enjoyed on a day to day basis. On some level I knew that and I stopped myself from pursuing that goal. This time I simply didnt want to spend loads of time remembering or imagining things I didnt want.
These internal "Blocks" I was worrying about don't exist like I thought they did. Excuse would be a better word.
