This week’s question via the Soul Guidance Hub comes from a woman in the UK who asked to remain anonymous. I will refer to her as Wendy.
Question: Dear Tal, I am successful in manifesting things I set my mind to achieve but not in matters relating to finance and success. In fact I note when I desire to improve myself I meet resistance and encounter the opposite to my intentions and dreams. Is there an explanation for this?
It is a well known fact that most of what runs our life is what we don’t know is running us.
All schools of ‘facilitation of consciousness’ (psychotherapy, coaching, even spiritual practices etc.) are founded on this very premise. Depending on the particular school of thought, this understanding is approached from various angles. So for example, cognitive therapy will approach this by working with our limiting beliefs and shifting these, coaching will tackle this by focusing on a specific goal and implementing a plan of action to counteract the resistance that comes up. A Jungian or more ‘spiritual’ approach often includes working with our dreams and associative world as well as honoring, accepting and nurturing the deeper purpose of all our experiences. Although this is a somewhat simplified version of a few schools of thought, all of these agree that part of healing , growth and movement includes awakening to or becoming conscious of those underlying patterns in our psyche and ‘field’ that we were not aware are running us.
So Wendy, if you really desire something and it is not showing up in your life, it simply means that there are still “subconscious” entanglements that have not yet been resolved. If you adopt a compassionate and loving approach to this, you can ditch the ‘new age guilt’, self judgment and sense of failure that often follows this realization and understand that this is a part of your unique journey and your next opportunity for growth and mastery.
We all have something we’re working on alongside other parts of our life that may be running so smoothly that we can simply forget to notice or appreciate them.
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you may already know that a few years ago I was in dire straits when it came to my financial well being. In fact, it literally took a ‘financial crisis’ to actually wake me up to the fact that I had a lot of learning, healing and growth to do in this arena.
But were there other areas in my life that were working great? Of course there were! Although I will openly admit that I was so entrenched in my ‘financial pain’ that I would often forget that I had perfect health, a family who loved me, emotionally supportive friends, a roof over my head, a great education up my sleeve, years of travel and international experience……and you get the picture!
It was during my crisis that I made a very clear decision that I would spend however long it took to learn how I could become financially free and prosperous by sharing my gifts, doing what I love and have a portable business that would support my Sagitarian “traveling” spirit. Was it easy? Not necessarily. Like any heroic journey, it was about slaying those inner dragons and entanglements that were literally keeping me from my ‘gold’. It was a deep inner journey that has helped me transform the very core of my being which is now reflected in my newfound experience of prosperity and financial freedom!
And the same is available for YOU wherever you are on your journey!
I send you blessings of much love,
