Some of the most crippling manifestation blocks are the most subtle. They are often states of mind that keep us dwelling on negative emotions to the point that they diminish our ability to consciously manifest. One of the most unsuspecting of these is lack of forgiveness.
It’s so inconspicuous you may not even be aware that you’re carrying it, yet it arouses extremely potent, consequential emotions. Anger, bitterness, resentment, and blame are all frequencies that can block the manifestation of our desires. And they’re hallmarks of what we emit when we don’t forgive.
But in the delicate realm of manifestation, vibration matters. A vast amount of what we call into our lives, whether intentionally or unconsciously, is a result of our vibrational frequency.
We may not get to choose what happens to us, but we choose what vibration we emit in response. And that vibration, for better or worse, becomes the blueprint for reality creation.
Because emotions are vibration, they exert great influence over our frequency.
Joy, gratitude, and contentment, for example, create energetic pathways that attract more of what elicits those emotions. Guilt, anger, and resentment create energetic obstacles that, unless your goal is to manifest more negative emotions, stand in the way of the reality you do want to create.
So, to live a life of consistent, conscious manifestation, vigilance around your vibration is key. You want to protect it. You want to use it as a beacon that will guide your desires to you. That doesn’t mean ignoring the emotions you don’t want to create more of. It simply means not allowing them to become you.
I learned this when the effortless miracles that had so far defined my adventure manifesting my way around the world for three years on a budget that was only meant to last three months no longer flowed so easily.
There was only one thing I was doing differently. Instead of my usual buoyant disposition, I was heavy with animus over something that desperately needed my forgiveness.
After weeks of bitterness bordering on self-loathing, I had no choice. Not out of a sense of altruism, but because the peace of my own heart depended on it.
When I looked into the eyes of the one who had broken me and said the words that would heal me, the effects were visceral. A huge weight lifted from my shoulders. A sigh of relief freed itself from my formerly constricted chest.
Almost instantaneously, the parts of my body and energetic field that had felt so hopelessly stuck released. The magic I’d grown accustomed to flowed freely again, as if it had only been waiting for me to clear the path.
Before long, the synchronicities that guided my life were back in full force, even leading me to the manifestation of one of my heart’s seemingly most unattainable desires after years of fantasizing. Forgiveness brought my manifestation mojo back.
Forgiveness does not mean absolution. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you condone the behavior. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you weren’t affected, or that the offending behavior will have no impact.
Forgiveness means that the pain and resentment, though real and justified, will not define you. And it gives you an opportunity to put the spiritual lessons that sound so great in theory and look so good on paper into practice.
But if you don’t want manifestation to be an isolated occurrence, you can’t let forgiveness be just an isolated incident, either. To achieve consistent manifestation, consider taking forgiveness one step further.
To err is human. We should hardly be surprised when we experience this firsthand. People are bound to do something that hurts or offends us, whether by accident or intention. And we’re likely to forgive them, eventually.
But if delaying forgiveness to some inevitable future restricts our ability to manifest in the now, what might happen if we cut out the resentment, cut out the anger, cut to the chase, and arrived at forgiveness much sooner?
This is forgiveness before transgression, or foregiveness, and I’m convinced it can help clear the path for our desires to manifest.
Practicing foregiveness allows us to move more quickly from anger to peace. Foregiveness means we can more readily feel our negative emotions without becoming them.
It puts us on the fast track back to oneness and flow and makes a baseline of happiness, gratitude, and joy—all essential emotions for raising our vibration to conscious, consistent manifestation levels—sustainable.
We are justified in our feelings of hurt and betrayal, and owning all of our feelings is a vital part of the healing process. But we harbor anger, bitterness, and resentment to our detriment. Holding on to these emotions, instead of acknowledging them and letting them move through, can keep us out of flow.
This isn’t to say you can’t manifest when you’re holding negative emotions. But since manifestation is a reflection of your vibration, what do you think you’ll call in while you’re vibrating anger, betrayal, and hurt? That’s why, ultimately, the only people we harm by not forgiving are ourselves.
So, to live a life of consistent manifestation, make foregiveness a daily practice, even when you haven’t been wronged. By preparing for this inevitability, we give ourselves the grace to get back in the flow where magic happens.
Every time we choose forgiveness (and remember to forgive yourself, too), we pave the way for manifestation to become our default reality.
