We are emotional creatures, and we were born to express them openly and freely.
But somewhere along the way, we feel ‘negative’ emotions – and we repress them to feel accepted, loved, and fit into society’s version of a perfect person.
But if we can make peace with knowing that feeling negative is a part of life, most of our sufferings would come to an end. If we can deal with our emotions rather than suppress them, you’d discover that they are your friends.
Note: When I say negative emotions, I don’t mean wrong or bad. I’m only referring to those emotions we don’t want to feel.
Working towards manifesting a goal can be quite exciting. It feels magical when you realize that you can manage your emotions, thoughts, and beliefs to create the outer-world experience you desire.
For many people who learn manifestation techniques, there is an initial excitement. But what happens when it doesn’t deliver the big result that you expect? You start feeling despair and anger. When trying for the second time, you’ll likely be disconnected from your emotions.
Most people are bombarded with different rules when manifesting. So, we don’t have a choice but to follow every information on the internet.
We have to change the crappy self-image of ourselves, we have to believe in things we want, try to block out the things we don’t want and find a reason to stay positive all the time.
This can take a toll on your mental health. You tend to be resistant to these sorts of feelings which complicates things more.
What causes emotional numbness?
Dealing with emotional numbness can be quite challenging. How do we transform the energy we don’t feel connected to? We may have been disconnected from our feelings for so long, we don’t know what to feel anymore.
Emotional numbness can be caused by so many things. Maybe your family was the type who believed “Children are to be seen, not heard” so you had a hard time healthily processing emotions.
There might have been a time where you expressed yourself, but anger was met with anger, the fear went unacknowledged, and plenty was overlooked because you needed to be a big girl/boy.
So as a defense mechanism, you shut them out. You’ve learned to bury your feelings, pain, and anger – you put on a mask, head outside, and build walls trying to hide the pain from everyone including yourself.
Or maybe you couldn’t handle these emotions for some reason and it was part of your personality.
Whatever reason it is, without an emotional connection to the things you want badly, they have cannot be manifested.
If you truly wish to manifest something, your HEART and MIND have to be in unity.
The biggest problem is resistance
Feeling negative or numb is not the problem, trying to shut it out is. Resistance is what stops us from analyzing our feelings and finding the driving force behind them.
These feelings did not pop out from the woods, they were triggered by something. When we are feeling bad, we tend to curse ourselves for not being good at this “becoming a better version of yourself” thing.
Then we hide them deep inside us where others can’t see them. These unresolved emotions get trapped in our bodies, draining our energy, leading to emotional imbalance, burnout, and disease.
Not feeling any emotions when manifesting isn’t wrong. It can be the key to unlocking what you want.
Are you getting attached to the outcome?
When someone tries a technique several times but fails repeatedly, they tend to become less interested. Have you tried a technique that didn’t work out for you?
This could be a major reason why you are feeling numb. But, you have been getting it completely wrong.
Listen, if you are the type of person that gets attached to outcomes, you’ll probably have a hard time when manifesting.
Do you live in the moment or worry about the outcomes? If you choose the latter, the manifestation may not be good for your mental health.
We get a bit obsessed with shifting our energy and crappy outcomes make us feel unworthy, broken, undeserving, lacking, and incomplete.
Your search for signs becomes unhealthy. You begin to feel intolerant, constantly fearing that if you don’t get a sign from the universe, something bad would happen. And when you can’t find a laid-out direction, you get sad and disconnected. Let go of manifesting from a point where you need to be fixed.
Have you cross-checked with your heart?
Ever experienced a situation where we want something badly, but when we get it, the excitement doesn’t follow the package?
How many times have you heard the story of a person with a perfect life – great job, money, big house, beautiful kids, loving home – but she just felt empty or unfulfilled?
Sometimes, we think we want something, but if you examine your desires thoroughly, you’d find out that it is not in agreement with what your heart wants.
In situations like this, we feel emotional numbness when manifesting because the heart cannot connect to the energy and frequency it needs to bend to the universe.
Feel as if you are living in your answered prayers
That exact moment when you get that one thing you want, how are you feeling? I want you to connect with the energy each time you want to manifest. Yeah, a forced smile can become natural with consistency.
Learn to get out of your HEAD and INTO your heart to have the FEELINGS surrounding this THING. Whenever you feel negative, don’t shun it out. Rather, take out time to examine these feelings and re-create them to connect with the desired thing you want.
Before you start any manifestation technique, it is a good idea to throw out grief by engaging in the things you enjoy doing. You can watch a comedy, draw, or even watch success stories of people that have tried manifesting on youtube.
Become calm, cool, and collected always. Use your imagination to get the feeling of already having the desire and live as though you are there.
I hope this helps you get out of your current state of numbness and connect with your inner child.
