To make matters worse, many of the tools out there to help you manifest your goals don’t work once you reach a certain level of frustration or if you have a history of trauma. That’s when anxiety and self-blame can take over and the frustration of waiting can feel unbearable.
I learned this firsthand when I was a graduate student working on my dissertation research on spirituality and reproductive trauma. The women in my study wanted to have a baby more than anything and the emotional distress they were experiencing was understandable and undeniable. The truth is that positive thinking can become difficult to access when unrealized dreams stir up emotional turmoil. That’s when a trauma-sensitive lens can help. And it’s why I created Trauma-Informed Manifesting®.
Trauma-Informed Manifesting® is an approach to manifesting goals that is empowering and supportive to all, but is particularly inclusive and responsive to the needs of people who have experienced trauma. It explores the impact of popular manifestation advice on mental health and promotes an awareness of healthy practices.
When it comes to manifesting, trauma can interfere with the healthy pursuit of goals by impacting your beliefs, emotions, and behaviors long after the threat is gone. It can cause you to focus on surviving rather than thriving despite your best efforts to move beyond fear.
Trauma-Informed Manifesting® can help you you feel safe and empowered enough to grow and pursue your goals in healthy ways.
Once you start to experience safety and empowerment, it’s easier to embody confidence and develop trust in yourself and the manifestation process.
With increased self-compassion, creative possibilities can become easier to access.
Then, suddenly, the “what if” scenarios that used to keep you up at night (as in, What if my goal never manifests? and What if I’m sabotaging myself?) get replaced with …
What I’ve learned after twenty years of helping people with their emotions and life goals is that prioritizing your emotional health over your goals can be the kindest, and sometimes even the fastest, route to manifesting them.
Just imagine what’s possible for you once you once you approach manifesting with more self-compassion.
