My new friend, the magical Tanya Markul makes this week’s contribution to the Transformation Goddess Summer Writing Series. This series is comprised of articles written by several of the women who will be speaking at the 2nd Annual Goddess Talk Sessions Global Event this September. This post was originally shared at Thug Unicorn.


Find the positivity. Find the grace. Find the ecstasy within the ache.

You’ve set your intentions, you’ve embarked on the inner work, but still wonder why your dreams aren’t manifesting.

First of all, there’s nothing wrong with you. Hitting a plateau is an important mile marker on any journey and a sign that you’ve reached a great teacher of heart.

A block is an opportunity for you to re-align with your soul. Your personal manual for dream weaving and manifesting relies on these pauses to write and reveal itself.

The key is learning to become aware of your stagnation’s creative voice, versus trying to resist or control its wisdom.

Shift from frustrating lull to vital check-in, and what if a few small tweaks could unblock your dreamy request of the Universe?

You’ve probably already felt the inklings, dreamt the symbols, and heard the inner call to drop certain beliefs or habits in order to magnetise, not repel, abundance.

You already are your personal Dream Manifesting Guru, but just in case you need a little reminder or a nudge back towards your heart…

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”  ~Joseph Campbell

Here are 3 easy rituals for unblocking the flow of abundance.

Adjust each one to the song of your soul — make authentic edits, unleash your intuition, and like Allen Ginsberg said, “follow your inner moonlight.”

1. What you believe, you’ll receive. The currency of abundance — aliveness, joy, beauty, love and inner peace — is self-worth.

Self-worth can be discovered and recovered through a consistent practice of self-acceptance. Beware of trying to mould yourself to fit other people’s idea of aliveness, success, or happiness. Nourish yourself by the minute with kind and loving thoughts, and quickly pay off your self-worth debt.

The person’s whose acceptance of you is most important is YOU.

UNBLOCK ABUNDANCE RITUAL: Learn to hold space for abundance (and replenish your self-worth) by practicing envisioning exactly what you want. Sit quietly and dream daily. Give yourself permission to feel it in every fibre of your being.

2. Quit focusing on what you don’t have – be grateful for what is in front of you. When you put a end to jealousy, anger or judgment toward the success of others, and instead allow yourself to be fuelled by their elevation, you rise.

Being grateful is saying an energetic YES to abundance NOW. Trust in the divine timing of your unveiling.

Gratitude is a protection spell, repelling negative energy, as much as it is a magnet for abundance. Its possibilities are limitless. C’est tout.

UNBLOCK ABUNDANCE RITUAL: Place your left hand over your heart. Place your right hand onto your lower belly. Exhale deeply. Give thanks to what is in your life. Make a mental list first thing in the morning and/or just before bedtime. Mean it and feel it.

3. Take the reins – be what you want. If you want love, be loving. If you want friends, be friendly. If you want forgiveness, be forgiving.

The healing elixir is found inside of any poison. Whatever creates emotional scar tissue, is exactly what will help to heal it.

When you take responsibility for your actions, your story, and your suffering, you naturally recycle the contents of your heart into self-affirming & empowering truths. Your pain is your purpose and your personal experience of self-healing is a gift only you can offer the world.

UNBLOCK ABUNDANCE RITUAL: Set a daily intention to be the energy you wish to receive. Return again and again to your personal mission.

Remember to give yourself space to be messy, to be magical, to make mistakes, to play, to dream, to howl, to explore, to love uninhibitedly, to find your own way, and to enjoy life as only you can.

Find the positivity. Find the grace. Find the ecstasy within the ache.
