Creative Possibilities Are Available to You

Gabby Bernstein on a balcony overlooking the oceanWe live in a Universe of abundance, and an infinite number of creative possibilities are available to us.

Sounds great, right? It is. And it’s the truth — but this truth is easy to forget. We can get out of alignment with this belief system very easily.

I spent many years being pretty bad at seeing those creative possibilities. I was often obsessing about problems and how to fix them. I’d get very stressed out when things didn’t work the way I wanted and I’d try to control my circumstances to feel safe and deal with all the uncertainty of the world. I spent a lot of time pushing and controlling, thinking that my mini meltdowns would get me to the next level in my life.

Eventually I hit bottom, turned inward and prayed for help. This moment of surrender led to an awakening. I realized I couldn’t move forward in life with grace and ease if I was constantly looking for problems. My fixation blocked my Super Attractor power.

I had to stop obsessing over problems and start looking for solutions.

That very simple adjustment in my attitude changed everything in my life.

I chose to perceive problems as possibilities

It was when I began to perceive problems as possibilities that everything began to shift. Whenever I noticed a problem come up, I instantly redirected my focus and started to repeat this mantra:

I’m seeking solutions. All my solutions are on the way.

It makes me feel good even now, even this moment, just saying that out loud: “I’m seeking solutions. All my solutions are on the way.” Literally saying it out loud to myself over and over again made me feel more aligned, more connected and more empowered.

Repeating this mantra redirected my focus and shifted my energy. It calmed my nervous system and made me feel more receptive. And I started to really pay attention to the solutions that were available to me when I stopped trying to fix my problems.

How to stop obsessing over problems and open up to creative possibilities

First it’s important to recognize the perceived problems in your life that you have on repeat. Open a journal and write your responses to these 2 questions:

  • What are the problems that you talk about often? The ones you complain about or obsess over, or journal about in the middle of the night?
  • How does it feel to think about these problems and pour your energy into trying to fix them?

When you cultivate this awareness, you open up your ability to receive solutions instead!

Below are 3 steps on how to stop obsessing about problems and start seeking solutions. When you redirect your focus in this simple way, you’ll recognize and accept that creative possibilities are available to you all the time!

Step 1: Watch your words and the words of others

I am kind & loving toward others while creating clear boundaries that protect my good-feeling emotionsThe words you choose directly affect your energetic vibration. When you gossip or judge or put other people down, you lower your energetic vibration.

Become very conscious of what you say — because sometimes we think we’re being helpful or nurturing, but actually our comment is hurting someone else’s energy.

For instance, as I share in Super Attractor, during my fertility journey and I was very public about my personal experience of trying to conceive. I wanted to remind others they weren’t alone and I wanted to share the spiritual practices that helped me stay deeply aligned and faithful even when I wasn’t sure what the resolution would be.

I knew my openness was helping other women, and I started getting countless messages from women thanking me and sharing their own stories. I felt so grateful for their outreach. I also noticed that when I heard stories of struggle, pain, doubt and suffering, I started to feel very down.

Over my years of being a spiritual teacher, I’ve welcomed people’s stories and I have deep compassion for them. But this time it was hitting really close to home. As I picked up on their fear, I felt my own faith start to dwindle, and my positive momentum slowed down. And I started to project other people’s stories onto myself.

How I protected my energy

The moment I noticed I wasn’t feeling good, I decided to pivot, because I had to protect my energy. Anytime I received an email with resistance around fertility, I’d say a prayer for the person and remind myself that their story is not my story. I’d say that over and over again: “Their story is not my story.”

I did everything I could to protect my good-feeling momentum. After a few months of committing to feeling good, I noticed I was no longer getting negative messages or comments at all. They weren’t even coming into my sphere.

I can decide today to recalibrate my energy and commit to love and joy | Super Attractor deckMy commitment to feeling good sent a message to the Universe that I was no longer a match for negative fertility stories. My belief in infinite creative possibilities allowed me to release all blocks.

Not only was I no longer attracting the negative fertility stories, but I became a match for positive stories. Every woman I met from that point forward came up to me with a miraculous story of fertility.

It was amazing to see how my commitment to feeling good, my commitment to infinite possibilities, strengthened my Super Attractor power. That energy started to vibrate within me because I was supporting my intention, which was to feel good and focus on creative possibilities.

How to handle other people’s resistance

As you begin your practice of focusing on creative possibilities in your own life, you’ll notice resistance from other people. It’s just going to happen. When you shine bright, it’s confusing to others who aren’t ready for that light. Don’t blame them or their resistance, because they’re just reflecting back to you just any lingering resistance of your own.

Use these moments as opportunities to surrender to feeling good even more. Some ways you can do this are:

  • Amp up your meditation practice.
  • Find ways to distract yourself and have fun.
  • Seek positive stories and opportunities to feel good.
  • Tell the truth with love.
  • Redirect a conversation, unfollow someone negative on social media or leave a room when you need to.

Remember that you can’t control what people say or do, but you can choose how you perceive what’s going on and how you experience everything that happens.

Make sure you’re constantly reminding yourself:

I’m open to creative possibilities. I focus on feeling good, and it’s good to feel good.

Step 2: Call on compassion

In order to open up to new possibilities in your life, you have to honor your feelings and call on self-compassion.

Honor yourself for feeling the feelings you’ve had and the difficulties you’ve experienced in your life. Be very kind, compassionate and loving toward yourself, because opening up to creative possibilities is a radical change. You’re asking your Higher Self to step in and replace an ego belief system that you’ve likely been holding on to for decades.

In order to make that leap, you have to start from a place of  self-compassion.

Step 3: Practice appreciation

Gabby Bernstein praying | The #1 key to manifestingAppreciation is the antidote to worry, and worry is another big way that we resist creative possibilities.

I’m a recovering worrier. I used to spend countless hours worrying about things that I just couldn’t control. Finally I was ready to change, so I called on my spiritual practice. What led me out of the chaos was appreciation.

When we’re in a state of appreciation, there’s no room for worry or resistance. In fact, worry and appreciation just can’t coexist. Period.

Whenever you notice yourself worrying about something that’s out of your control, list what you appreciate. Your appreciations can be related to whatever you’re worrying out or they can be completely unrelated. It doesn’t matter. What matters is that you’re shifting your focus from the addictive pattern of worry onto a habit of appreciation.

The moment you redirect your focus onto appreciation you’ll feel better. You’ll start to feel more aligned with your Super Attractor power. Instead of obsessing over problems and worrying about outcomes, you’ll open up to creative possibilities and dwell in the receptive, high-vibration energy of appreciation.

I’ve turned to this step multiple times throughout a day when I needed it. Return to appreciation again and again.

See your experiences through the lens of appreciation

When I'm in a state of appreciation I'm in alignment with my true love nature | Super Attractor deckWe spend tons of time focusing on what we’re experiencing rather than how we’re experiencing it. As a result, we forget that we can change our experience of anything when we shift our point of focus.

We can experience any situation, even the tough ones, with more love when we choose to see them through the lens of appreciation. When you choose a lens of appreciation, you can start to find purpose in those painful moments instead of remaining the victim of the experience.

When you choose the lens of appreciation, you immediately start to reframe something that may have been very uncomfortable, turning it into a miracle. You can choose to appreciate a heartbreak as an opportunity to deeply feel, or you can appreciate a diagnosis as the catalyst for putting you on a healing path.

When you see your life through the lens of appreciation, you can forgive the past and accept it for exactly what it was. You can see your past as a great learning device on your spiritual path, and you can just let appreciation clear your path. This practice helps you shift your attention from what was to what is.

Opening up to creative possibilities is your choice

One small pivot is enough to open you up to creative possibilities. That pivot requires that you talk to yourself gently and guide your thoughts back to love in any moment. Redirect your story and say, “Yes, this is what I want. This is the direction I want.”

Use these steps to guide yourself out of obsessing over a problem, worrying about what you can’t control or resisting. Use them to guide yourself into a story of infinite creative possibilities. The Universe pivots as quickly as you do — there’s no lag time.

If you have no idea how to pivot, ask the Universe for help. Use this prayer:

Thank you, Universe, for revealing to me whatever it is that I need to see. I am open to creative possibilities.

As soon as you realign your energy, the Universe delivers. And then you start to see the creative possibilities you’ve been waiting for. Pay attention to those miracles. When you pay attention to the miracles, and when you say yes to creative possibilities, that’s when you truly begin to live a miraculous life.

  1. I have a very hard time practicing appreciation..I’m hyper so it’s hard to focus but also my husband of 50 yrs has Parkinson’s so I feel anger, devastation, scared you name it. He has always been vibrant & outgoing & happy & now he’s slipping fast. I just can’t get into loving this experience

    1. Thank you for showing up. I had forgotten how I used to ask for guidance, then got lost along the way. But one day I rememberd and asked for help and that’s when your book The Universe has your Back jumped out at me on my phone to order on Kindle. I have just finished it and everything I needed was all there. I am now hooked for more. Thank you.

  2. Thank you Gabby for all your work and wisdom. Your message of surrendering has helped me for awhile now and sometimes I lose track and I try to control a desired outcome. I am currently going through the process of surrender once again; letting go of a relationship that I believe is meant for me but currently not in alignment. I find myself in a consistent cycle of the same choices, which any longer serve me but I’ve found myself making those choices again and again. I’ve obsessed over this situation for years and this post has definitely gave me a light to walk with as I relinquish control and surrender this relationship back to God. Thank you for being a vessel

  3. Hi Gabby. Thank you for this post. I am currently reading Super Attractor. I feel overwhelmed by multiple circumstances(finances, husband with brain tumor, son with ASD, loss of family members, aging ill parents, debt). While I can start with some of this, my days seem to be a tidal wave of issues that need to be addressed. It leaves me exhausted at the end of the day. I can’t not deal with what is happening and I feel like every time I start to feel that sense of hope and movement to something better, a huge set back or incident happens and I’m back to square one. I feel like I need to use every mantra, every meditation, every day and that feels overwhelming and exhausting. My children are my first priority and if I could help manifest health for them, I would be so grateful. So as a mom, what would you do if your child was struggling(obviously- we have medical intervention) and seems we are getting no where? Many thanks and blessings to you❤️

    1. Great question, Trish. It sounds like you are using all the tools in your spiritual tool box. As you know, prayer is the medium for asking and meditation is the medium for receiving. As you continue showing up for yourself, you may receive guidance through your spiritual practice that leads you to a wellness professional, an EMDR or EFT specialist, or a spiritual counselor who can provide treatments/resources/support for you and/or your family during this time. I am a strong believer that God works through people.

  4. Thank you for this, its in alignment with what I’m feeling, What I find interesting is being a manifestor, yoga teacher and sober member of a 12 step program, God has always provided, on this journey to fertility it has not been that way, this has happened to many of my friends that are typically wonderful manifestors as well, many of them ended up getting help from fertility doctors etc. Where is the line when time starts running out to take action, outside of positive affirmations, prayer and meditation? If you are not attracting a baby, a job etc, when do you look for outside help? Or do you believe if it doesnt happen its not God’s will?

    1. Great questions, Lene. I do not believe that there is one answer that fits all situations. It is up to each individual to clearly express their desires, ask the universe for help, and listen to their intuition. For example, you may receive guidance through your spiritual practice that leads you to hormone expert, wellness & birth coach, fertility doctor, or any other resource that might support you during this time. I am a strong believer that the universe works through people. xoxo

  5. Hi Gabby, thank you for these pearls of wisdom. Once again you have come at a time when I am seeking this kind of help. I have used your guidance regarding abundance and it’s really paying dividends, and I often say to myself when I am doubting – the universe will deliver the same as what I am asking for or something better. It’s really working. In regards to your guidance with interaction in this blog, at the moment I have terrible problems with a woman who I work with in a confined space. I am not one for staying in a situation which affects me in a negative way, as my path as been too expensive to get me this far for a start! But I don’t know how to protect myself as she sucks the life out of me (even more so when I receive more light from the universe) and I just can’t stand it. I notice that when I go into shops after spending a day with her, that I am short with people and this is not my true nature. I will try and follow your guidance but I am so worried about coronovirus at the moment, like so many other people, and I have to work somewhere where I might get sick pay, and so I can’t go for another job. How do I stay strong and feel that the universe is protecting me, for example, with my very weak lungs? I am obviously frightened but believe in your guidance on this. Thank you Gabby. Ann

  6. Thanks so much. Perfect timing as we are facing some challenges at the moment… Looking forward to miracles as the creative possibilities unfold! Thank you! Xx

  7. I had a surprise emergency surgery. I was very ill and everyone including my doctor thought it was a herniated disk. Nope, an abscess full of pus on my spine. Now, I “should” be up and running. However I’m feeling lost. Not enough energy to do much, but no longer ill. I need to get back to my part-time job but I’m dragging my feet. Income is crucial now. After reading your blog my steps are 1) Create an appreciation list every day as of right now, 2) Write down and read often your prayer & mantras in this post and 3) Better self care. I’m going to take a much needed shower today. 4) At the top, self-compassion. Thank you Gabby.

    1. Amazing, Kat. I’m so glad this post resonates with you. Know that I’m sending you prayers and healing light as you continue to heal. xoxo

  8. Beautiful blog post – much needed with what is happening in the world as well as my current change in life. I moved away from NYC – about 10 hours away – and I feel happy but things are different. I am almost looking for issues. I can choose to see things differently and with love. I have to remind myself – This is so great! I am still close, but now even closer to my husband’s family with beautiful scenery in the mountains and close to magnificent beaches. I am in the middle of the east Coast with my loving husband and we are starting this beautiful chapter of our lives. … and still a car ride away, or short plane trip. I am open to creative possibilities because I AM a super attractor!!

    Really and truly beautiful blog post. Needed. …And absorbed.

    1. I’m grateful these tools and this work is supporting and encouraging you Liza. Sending much love and light your way. xo
