Now you may be wondering what I mean by less is more when we are constantly told to do more with manifesting? Well, throughout February I had a few realisations with some manifestations I’ve been calling in over the last few months and also conversations with friends on the same topics. We all agreed on this concept when we spoke and I came to realise this is not spoken about enough in Law of Attraction teachings, and how along our journey we can become obsessed with doing so much that actually, we end up blocking ourselves. So this week I wanted to bring this topic to the table and help to inspire you with this notion too.
This blog post is definitely for my overdoing it Queens out there who are doing EVERYTHING and are still not seeing results or are where they want to be. If you know deep down you could be doing more and taking action then this won’t apply, so please use your discernment here with the co-creation process. Remember with manifesting we are co-creating with the Universe so we must meet the Universe at 50% through clear intention (ask stage), removing any blocks/beliefs (believe stage), and take inspired action (trust stage). Past that point, we must then create the space for the Universe to meet us 50% also through the letting go and receiving stage. What can sometimes happen is our ego mind steps in and likes to control, also this may not actually be your fault either. There is so much toxicity in some Law of Attraction teachings that if your desire isn’t here yet it’s your fault and you must do more. Now to SOME degree that is true, but if you are going 90% of the way and doing everything, then no Queen more is NOT the answer.
My friend and I are both Virgo’s and we are hustlers, we work hard and are often known for going 90% of the way. I also know we are not alone with this and through conditioning and what is taught in some spirituality it’s easy to fall down the rabbit hole of obsessing over the inner work and that you must do more. The problem with this is that at some point you have to step back and create the space. After numerous conversations together we tracked back our biggest manifestations and what we were doing at those times and were both shocked to realise – we were doing nothing! Okay, maybe a morning routine and small spiritual rituals we love but we weren’t doing the inner work every week, working with mentors, hustling, and doing everything and anything to see shifts. We were living life, relaxed, and more than anything present! This sparked my interest as I thought about how this reflects the stages of manifestation and ‘acting if’ as well because if our desires were here we wouldn’t be worrying, we wouldn’t be doing the inner work – we’d be happy, relaxed, and enjoying life!
So how did we get here? Well again through conditioning and also believing that we had to ‘fix’ something as our desires weren’t here yet. Yes, it is important to do the inner work and witness when that needs to be done but what I see time and time again is people falling into this and thinking there is more and more to work on. Meaning they end up doing more and more because their desire still isn’t here. What this ends up doing energetically is keeping you stuck, and in a loop of ‘why isn’t my desire coming’. Now when doing the inner work you are clearing and releasing it’s a very transformative energy and while things can still come in of course your energetic space as such is occupied with your healing and inner work. Now for your desire to come in you need to create the space so can you see that we have to keep progressing through the 5 Law of Attraction steps AND create the space mentally, emotionally, and physically for the desire to come in.
My mantra over the last year has been ‘Emma does less, Emma attracts more’ at first this was aimed at my business as I’ve been hustling hard for over 8 years in both of my businesses. I realised it was time to step back, hire a team and allow myself to be supported financially and physically by my team. This created so much shift in my life and helped me to realise how important balance is for me to manifest the other things I desire. So as I’ve worked with this mantra more I’ve realised my controlling 90% manifesting doesn’t work and that actually sometimes by doing less I really am doing more! As I’ve embraced this and taken steps back to slow down and create the space I’ve noticed how quickly things will shift and I’ll see doors open that I struggled to open before. So there is something certainly powerful about this notion and that we can allow ourselves to be supported by the Universe and we don’t have to do it all.
“Doing this doesn’t mean you’re lazy or not passionate about your desire anymore, it means you create the space and get out of your own way too. Sometimes we are our biggest block and by stepping back and allowing, we allow the Universe to finally step in and say ‘Hey see you didn’t have to do it all alone I had your back the whole time I just needed you to see this and create the space for me”.
I think it’s also about realising that we don’t need to ‘fix’ ourselves before a desire comes in. Yes, if you genuinely know you need help to clear or release something trust your intuition. But there is nothing wrong with you – it’s just simply energy or a belief that needs clearing. It’s also important to remember that you will learn on the job too, you will never be 100% healed or whole and we will always have things still left to learn along our lifetime. So witness here with me are you going 90% of the way? Are you in a trap of trying to ‘fix’ yourself because your desire isn’t here yet? This also applies to manifesting techniques also – I hear this time and time again with clients how they’ll be doing gratitude, visualisation, affirmations, meditation THE LOT every single day to imagine their desire and attract it. They then can’t work out why it doesn’t feel good after a while and why it hasn’t happened as the Law of Attraction expert told them to do this. Truthfully everyone is unique so for some people this genuinely may work but from my experience as a coach also I don’t believe it works. I don’t believe doing so much every single day works because at what stage are you letting go? At what stage are you creating the space and detaching from the outcome? At what stage are you truly being present and living life? As I mentioned earlier my friend and I realised that every single big manifestation happened when we were doing nothing! Which goes against most traditional Law of Attraction teachings. This is why I’m so passionate about bringing to you what does work for myself and clients because there is an easier way and sometimes doing less really does attract more.
So I want to challenge you if this blog post has struck a chord with you to do nothing for 30 days. If you have done the inner work and have honestly shown up, taken action, and done everything – I want you to do nothing. Stop it all for 30 days and just do what feels good. You may still want to do your morning routine and I would still strongly advise you to do that if it feels fun but cut out anything linked to manifesting your desire and just focus on exercises that keep you present and focused on the day. And then see what happens if you just live your life, if you take a break and do less. Use the mantra I’ve used ‘(Name) does less, (Name) attracts more’ and see how this transforms your life. Doing this doesn’t mean you’re lazy or not passionate about your desire anymore, it means you create the space and get out of your own way too. Sometimes we are our biggest block and by stepping back and allowing, we allow the Universe to finally step in and say ‘Hey see you didn’t have to do it all alone I had your back the whole time I just needed you to see this and create the space for me’. Try this for 30 days and keep me updated I’d love to hear what unfolds for you and remember Queen less is more sometimes and you are perfect how you are now you do not need to be ‘fixed’.
