You keep trying, but it’s not working. The trouble may be in the language you’re using to ask for what you want, and in what you think about most of the time. (Remember that the energy goes where your thoughts go.)
When someone asks you “What do you want?” do you reply with a list of what you don’t want? So if you keep saying “I don’t want a job that’s boring,” the energy goes out to find a job that’s boring.
That’s because your mind skips over the negative “don’t” and only hears “I want a job that’s boring.” IKR? It’s weird, but that’s how it works.
What do you want?
1) Your first step is to write a list of what you DO want. Add some magic to it. Use words that describe what want, that describe the emotion you want to feel. Keep it in the front of your mind, in your meditations, in your prayers.
On a sheet of paper, write “I WANT” across the top, then make your list. Now you’ve got the “I want” statements done and over with.
Intention Statements that work
2) The key is to compose an intention statement that works. For example, “I want” implies lack thereof. Whereas “I am” or “I have” or “I feel” states that you already have it, prompting your subconscious mind to stretch far and wide to attract it, to bring it into your life. To make it real.
“I want a house of my own” becomes
“I have a house with a fenced yard” can become
“I live in a beautiful, comfortable, 3 bedroom/2 bath home with a fenced yard and colorful flower gardens.”
“I don’t feel wanted” can become
“I want to feel wanted and loved” can become
“I am loved” can become
“I am loved and desired.”
And these alignment statements should be in every meditation: “I am enough.” “I feel good.”

Where is the resistance coming from?
3) Important! Check-in with your Inner Child, Your Inner Entrepreneur, your Higher Self to make sure that all aspects of your Self are on board with your intentions, because if one of them isn’t, you don’t have the chance of a snowcone in the summertime desert.
When you find the resistance, dig deep to discover why and then take steps to correct your mindset and thoughts so you can move ahead. You have the inborn potential for happiness and satisfaction, so it’s worth it.
Encouragement and magic are essential! You want all aspects of your Self to be delighted with your vision of where you want to be in 3 months, or 6 months, or next year.
Focus! Be consistent
According to Abraham Hicks, if you keep changing the image or thought of what you want, you delay manifestation because the creative energy has to start over each time you change your mind. Makes sense, right?
