I thought it would be useful to do a quick review of the reasons why many of us are manifesting so ineffectively. The truth is, most of us are unwittingly sabotaging the manifestation of our true desires. And there are three major reasons for this — EG; three areas that are shaping the energy that we are putting out and hence is getting reflected back to us as the experiences and circumstances of our lives.
The Three Major Stumbling Blocks
- Unconscious Limiting Beliefs
- Habitual Pessimistic Thinking
- Repressed Negative Emotions
Note that they all of these have one thing in common — they are all unconscious. This means we are not aware that they exist and hence are totally unaware of the effects they are having on what we are manifesting into our lives. Let’s explore each of these in more detail.
Unconscious Limiting Beliefs
Perhaps the biggest reason many of us are not manifesting our true desires is our unconscious limiting beliefs. Our beliefs play a profoundly critical role in what we can manifest. And the sad truth is that we are largely unaware of most of our beliefs. They are essentially unconscious and acting like hidden programs running on auto-pilot that not only color our perception of what is happening in the present moment but more importantly are shaping and constraining our thoughts and expectations — both of which are intimately involved in the creation of our reality.
And you’d be surprised by how few of your beliefs you actually formulated on your own — EG; based on your own experiences, observations, and analysis. The fact is that most of our beliefs we simply adopted from our society and our parents, teachers, and other so called authorities. And worse yet, we are at best only dimly aware of most of the beliefs that are programmed into our mind and how profoundly they shape our thoughts and expectations and hence, by the Law of Attraction, are shaping our reality.
If you want to become a master of manifestation, then you must deeply understand the critical role that beliefs play in the manifestation of your reality and you must replace old limiting beliefs with new and more empowering ones.

Habitual Pessimistic Thinking
Another major reason that is unwittingly causing us to sabotage the manifestation of our true desires is habitual pessimistic thinking. Most of us are almost completely unaware of how pessimistic we actually are — it’s an insidious habit that we are at best dimly aware of. Someday, when you reprogram yourself to be an optimist the pervasive pessimistic mindset of many of your friends and family members will stand out like a sore thumb, and you will likely be appalled.
The famous British statesman Winston Churchill had the following to say about pessimism versus optimism.
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Most of us are unknowingly spending an incredible amount of time worrying about what might go wrong and fearing the worst. If brought to our attention our rational minds will tenaciously defend this approach by asserting that it only makes sense to do this so as to avoid problems and stay safe. Sadly, by the Law of Attraction, this approach is actually INCREASING the chances that we will experience the very things we want to avoid.
Whether you know it or not, you are creating your reality with your thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. Once you stop anticipating problems and start expecting the best (EG; your desired outcomes) things will begin to go your way more and more often and you’ll be surprised how smoothly things will begin to go.
Here’s a seemingly silly affirmation that if repeated frequently will help to reprogram yourself into an optimist and attract abundance into your life.
Everything always seems to go my way — hooray, hooray! I get everything I want and more — galore, galore!
Repressed Negative Emotions
Another major reason that is unwittingly causing us to attract undesired adversity into our lives and to sabotage the manifestation of our true desires is repressed negative emotions. What many don’t realize is that some of the negative emotions they’ve experienced from highly charged events in their past may still be creating problems for them in subtle and insidious ways.
Far too often many of us hold on to (EG; suppress/repress) the negative emotions from our emotionally charged life experiences — emotions like anger, frustration, resentment, fear, low self-esteem, and so many more. These emotions are negative energy that’s trapped in our bodies that interferes with the proper functioning of our energy bodies which can then manifest as dysfunction, disease, and pain in the physical body. And these trapped emotions also act as a powerful force attracting adverse experiences similar to, or related to, the original experiences that created the trapped emotions in the first place — which means you will be unknowingly recreating further difficulties in your life.
So unbeknownst to most of us, much of the pain, suffering, and adversity in our lives is due to negative emotional energies that have become trapped within us. The good news is that by releasing our trapped emotions, many undesirable manifestations will often disappear from our lives.
If you’d like to learn more about this subject, I highly recommend the book The Emotion Code. It teaches a simple yet powerful way to find and release your unseen emotional baggage which often results in the sudden disappearance of physical ailments, self-sabotage, and other difficulties that you are manifesting in your life.
So in conclusion, becoming keenly aware of these three major reasons that are sabotaging the manifestation of your true desires is the first step towards more effective manifesting. I hope this overview has helped and I’ll be expanding on aspects of these in future articles, follow the blog to stay tuned.
