We all deal with doubts in manifesting, and beginners who have not successfully manifested anything yet are especially susceptible to it.
In this article, we will first look at the role doubts play in manifesting, and how then I will explain how you can stop them from ruining your manifestations.
In short, here are the best ways to deal with doubts when it comes to manifesting.
- Understanding Why It’s Okay To Have Doubts
- Identifying Doubts That Come From Emotions
- Understanding That Tou Can Choose To Believe
- Testing Manifestation
I will elaborate on these in a lot more in detail later on. But first, let’s look at why you, generally speaking, should try and avoid doubt.
What Role Do Doubts Play In Manifestation
In general, the more doubtful you are about your own ability to manifest, the harder it will be for you to consciously manifest something.
To manifest means to create a tangible result using the power of your mind. The external world is already a manifestation of your state of consciousness, and because of this, it is not only good beliefs that manifest but also negative ones.
You are manifesting all the time, whether you are aware of it or not. So if you constantly let yourself fall into doubt, saying things such as “I cannot manifest,” “is this even real,” or similar, you actually manifest your own inability to manifest.
If you want to manifest more money but have too much doubt saying “money is too hard to get,” the doubt will overpower your desire to get more money, consequently keeping you financially stuck.
This is why you should not dwell on doubts; they hinder you from manifesting. It’s perhaps impossible to remove ALL doubt completely, but it’s still important to learn how to deal with them properly.
Is It Okay To Have Doubts While Manifesting?
You cannot get rid of all doubts, and that’s okay. The important thing is to diminish the power of the doubts that currently stand in our way.
Getting rid of doubt completely is like trying to hold on to a slippery fish. The best way is to accept their existence.
Generally speaking, as you gain more experience and success with manifesting and begin to see convincing results, the doubts you hold will fade away on their own. You will be more and more convinced in your manifesting ability, and you will also learn that you do have what it takes to succeed in whatever area you may be focusing on.
For now, you just need to reduce the power of your doubts enough so that they don’t overpower your desire, and this does not necessarily mean completely removing them.
How To Deal With Doubts When Manifesting Something
Getting rid of doubt mainly consists of accepting that they are there but not letting them control you.
1: Realizing that you have doubts
The first thing you need to do is try and catch your doubts when they appear in your mind. You don’t necessarily have to fight them; simply just acknowledge their existence.
Whether or not the doubts are true or false, understand they are simply just thoughts.
2: Recognize “emotional” doubts
As you observe your doubts, try and analyze some of them. Where did they come from? You will find that many of them are based on fears that are not rooted in something that you actually believe to be true.
You may have doubts in the form of a critical or degrading voice in your head, saying, “you can’t do it.” But ask why, what is the reason that I don’t think I can do it? Most often, you will find that there is no reason at all and that the particular doubt never had any solid ground to stand on in the first place.
2: Choose to believe
In order to manifest, you at least need to be open-minded that you can do it. You don’t need to force yourself to believe it with absolute conviction, as that’s simply too hard.
But, you also cannot learn to manifest if you reject it as nonsense from the get-go.
Decide that you will now think as if manifesting is true. Your beliefs often largely come from your habitual thinking. The more you think about something, the more you will begin to believe it.
3: Affirm what you do want to believe
It may be that you believe that you can’t manifest at all or that you feel like your desire, whatever it may be, is not something you have the ability to achieve. Begin telling yourself that manifesting is real and that you do have what it takes to achieve what you want.
Affirmations influence the subconscious mind through repetition and suggestion. The subconscious mind is prone to suggestion, which means that habitual use of positive affirmation will begin to create new positive beliefs. You should, however, not feel that you are deluding yourself or that you’re forcing yourself to believe something.
4: Testing manifesting
The more successful manifestations you have, the less you will naturally begin to doubt it. If you’re a beginner, there really is no reason why you should not start now with manifesting. Go into meditation and imagine something with the intention of manifesting it in the external world. Experiment and see what happens. It’s okay to fail. In fact, you will probably only experience failure after failure for a long time.
A good way, although not necessarily the only way, is to try and manifest something small that you are not too emotionally attached to. While this is not easy, it’s still easier than manifesting a big desire. For example, if you have an iffy relationship with money and you’re trying to manifest money as the first thing, all your “money doubts” will pop up.
The Types of Doubts You May Experience
First of all, your main doubts have to do with your ability to manifest. This is by far the biggest one. The claim that we can manifest seems very radical to the average person, and you will not truly believe it until you have experienced it first-hand.
You also have other doubts that are more tailored to the “thing” you’re manifesting. Here are some examples:
- Believing that you in some way do not “deserve” the goal.
- Believing that you can’t manifest, but others can.
- Believing that your goal is too hard to get (often something that is way out of your present level of achievement).
- Believing that your goal is not meant to be (often happens with people trying to manifest a specific person).
For example, if you want to manifest money, but you believe that money “is too hard to get,” all sorts of doubts will arise during this pursuit, blocking you from it.
The biggest thing is not to take doubts too seriously. Accept them as mere thoughts rather than facts. You don’t have to remove all doubt completely in order to manifest something, just don’t give them too much power.
As you begin to observe and analyze your doubts, many of them will automatically fade away. The subconscious mind is prone to suggestion, so positive affirmations can aid in developing new positive beliefs.
