There’s No Problem Too Big For God

One block that will keep you from manifesting a life that you love is your tendency to categorize problems by their level of difficulty. It’s common to belief that it’s natural, and even easy, for God, or the universe (I use the terms interchangeably) to provide things like food, or a warm bed, but it can feel harder, or like you have to take a great leap of faith, to really believe that God can help you to finance that business, get a record deal, or open a cafe in your favorite neighborhood.

When you do this, you treat the divine energy that created worlds as if it’s a human, as it it’s limited in its capacity, energy, or beneficence. You do it unconsciously, as well as consciously, and that causes you to lose faith, because you label certain things as hard and others as easy.

Your mind perceives what’s possible through empirical data and limited, and it calculates the probability of dreams, never giving them a real shot to manifest. You think things like, It’s easy to get this job as a secretary. It’s a lot harder to come up with the money I need to start my catering business. It’s easy to meet people who simply want to hook up. It’s a lot more difficult to meet someone who wants a relationship. It’s easy to get over this cold. It’s going to take a lot longer to get over these health issues I’ve suffered from for years.

Here’s the key: Your thoughts are creating your reality. Your willingness to turn over certain areas of your life to the divine, but not others, hinders what you’re capable of manifesting. 

Maybe you’ve turned over your finances to God, but you haven’t let God help you to become healthier and more physically active. Maybe you’ve surrendered your career, but your love life is a wreck. Maybe you have faith that God will bring you a beautiful home, but you don’t quite believe that God is working on your relationship, or helping your son to get on the right path.

If you believe that it’s hard for God to solve some problems, but not others, you place limits on what the universe can give you. You have to surrender it all: the big, as well as the little. Moreover, you want to start reprogramming your mind to let go of the entire concept of big and little, which was taught to you by your parents, when they told you that if you earned good grades, went to college, and got a sensible job that paid well, that you’d be happy.

Well, look how far being sensible got you.

Instead, repeat the following mantra when you find yourself limiting what God can bring you, doubting the possibility of a manifestation or a solution:

All things are possible. I place no limits on anything.

Think about it logically: Not only are all things possible, but it’s obvious that all things are relative. A $1,000 purse is extravagant to one purse, but pennies to another. Ten new clients may be just what one person needs to change careers, but to a large business, that number feels insignificant. Going out on a date may seem trivial to someone who does it all the time, but it may carry more weight for someone else who hasn’t dated in years.

When you categorize certain areas in your life, or when you make particular dreams matter more, you put yourself in a position where it’s harder to manifest an outcome, or receive a solution.

When you tell yourself that something is “big,” or difficult - when you say that you have so much debt, it’s impossible to chip away it at - you literally block yourself from receiving help. 

The book A Course in Miracles, a spiritual curriculum that states its goal is to retrain the mind for the purpose of achieving peace, gives over 100 principles of miracles in the introduction. The first principle is: “There is no order of difficulty among miracles. One is not ‘harder’ or ‘bigger’ than another. They are all the same. All expressions of love are maximal.”

Now, granted, the Course defines a miracle as right-mindedness, or in other words, any time you shift from fear to love. In this way, a miracle occurs whenever you let go of a resentment and choose forgiveness, or any time you accept responsibility for your life and let go of a victim mindset, but it is exactly this shift that is needed to receive help from the divine, whether you’re looking for a solution to a specific problem, or whether you want to manifest a wide variety of circumstances in different areas of your life.

The starting point of every creation is simple: 1)You’re grounded in Spirit, coming from a place of love, and 2)You believe that it’s possible; you hold place no restraints on the divine.

So, if you have a problem that needs solving, or if you want to manifest more money, a better job, or new people in your life who are loving, then you must become miracle-minded. This means you must shift from fear to love (you must release judgments and negative beliefs or patterns) and you must believe that there is no order of difficulty for God. God doesn’t have an easier time paying off your $1,000 credit card bill than your $10,000 bill.

The energy that created this world can do all things. There is no such thing as too big, too small, too difficult, or too easy.

When you start to affirm that. When you repeat, All things are possible. There is no order of difficulty among miracles - when you say it every morning and night, and whenever you find yourself doubting the power of the divine - you will find that your life begins to shift. All of a sudden, things you considered impossible become ordinary. Solutions to problems you’ve had for years seem to emerge effortlessly. Your life just gets better and better. Give it a shot. Be willing to shift your mindset, and by doing so, you will welcome more solutions and possibilities into your life than you ever could’ve imagined.
