It's day 7, which means it's time to set aside the work we've done on our first habit and start hyper-focusing on the second habit or belief that we are ready to release! Now don't worry, we're not going to toss out all the work we just did. In fact, throughout the next seven days, we'll check back in with our first habit to see how it's going, so keep up with your two daily habits and keep moving on the path you are paving.
When I first started getting into manifestation, I thought that you were just supposed to have tons and tons of hope in order to make your dreams come true. But hope crushes you. It keeps you wishing and dreaming instead of actioning. We don't want hope, we want courage—the courage to actually go out and believe the things you want are possible, and the courage to take the steps to make it a reality.
Daily manifestation techniques show the universe that you have the courage and are ready to take action. There are soooo many different manifestation methods, and for the next 5 days, we'll be exploring the 3x6x9 method. It's super simple. You just write your manifestation 3 times in the morning, 6 times in the afternoon, and 9 times at night. That's it! We'll do this for five days straight, just like out 5x55 manifestation method.
TW for the next paragraph: eating disorders
For this week, I've chosen to release my belief that if I'm being healthy, I'm restricting. As someone who's had an eating disorder, I can easily get triggered when I try to eat healthy or exercise. My brain remembers how bad it was to have an intense eating disorder and goes into protector mode. It's actually been really helpful. It's kept me from falling back into old patterns. But this belief is also doing me a lot of harm, my protector is working way too hard instead of being balanced. If I try to exercise, my protector comes SCREAMING AT ME that I need to stop or else I'll fall back into old patterns. Same if I eat food that's healthy. The funny thing is, I actually love to exercise! And I love eating healthy, but my brain has never experienced those two activities in a way that was balanced, so it goes into panic mode thinking we're gonna nose dive back into eating disorder land.
And this is what I mean when I say that our bad habits and beliefs have benefitted us in some way. We wouldn't be doing it if we weren't getting something out of it, even if the benefit isn't even applicable anymore. It was at some point, and your brain is holding onto that. There's energy there that needs healed. But even sometimes after we've healed it, it can still persist. And in that instance, we look at our protector with compassion and say "that was then, this is now."
