Why Do We Manifest Lack?

If we live in an abundant universe, and money is just energy, and we are Source and therefore have access to all the resources of Source…then why do we still experience lack?

If the key to running a successful business is to have structures, marketing tools, connections to Social Media, a list, and making offers, why do we do all of that and STILL experience lack?

We humans are such funny creatures! We take the gift of Free Will and we use it to create all kinds of conditions to receive. Our outer world is a manifestation of our inner world. Always. If there is lack of something showing up in your business or your daily life, there is a part of you that is carrying a lack belief.

Not good enough. Not loveable. Not safe. Unimportant.

However, instead of recognizing that the external is just a mirror of the internal, we desperately push for the external conditions to change first, so we can finally have the evidence we need to feel good about ourselves.

Waiting until you have proof simply doesn’t work. Even if you are able to create enough action to drive some income into your checking account, as long as the internal beliefs are still out of alignment with abundance, the flow will not be sustainable. You just end up stuck and in lack all over again.

The way to keeping a sustainable flow is to come into alignment with what is really true: you are good enough. You are loveable. You are safe. You matter to Source.

These aren’t just esoteric self-help statements. These are the building blocks that when assembled, create the firm foundation that will lead to the fertile business and life you desire.

When you heal the internal lack, the external lack evaporates and in a very sustainable way. At some level, healing the internal lack is all about making the decision to do it. And yet, it’s often not as simple as someone telling you that you must do it and you just say, “Oh, okay. Now I love myself.”

But when you get enough gunk cleared out of the way to shift your consciousness, you are able, one step at a time, to keep making the choice, making the decision, being the person who is love, who is enough, who is safe, and who does matter.

Then, evidence of your very fertile life and business shows up in droves and lack shifts to prosperity.

    This is a great article! Great insights on the connection between the internal and extermal. Getting in alignment does affect every area of our life. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this and for helping so many people move from lack to abundance!


  2. Jennifer,

    I notice this shift happens when I decide to avoid certain people. Can this be because I feel insecure around them and if so is this something I can change or do I just avoid them like the plague. I would never have imagined myself to be insecure around them until I typed this.

      Hi Marsy,

      Great question!

      Something is certainly getting triggered within you when you interact with the people you describe. I have experienced this as well: being able to be my authentic self except when I am around certain people from my past, or people who trigger old patterns for one reason or another.

      Insecurity could be one way to describe how you are feeling. Or perhaps they trigger an old belief in you: someone with more education is more worthy, someone with “better” connections is more worthy, someone who hasn’t had a certain experience is better than you, etc.

      Initially, separating yourself from those people who make you feel less than or worthy is a good strategy because it gives you the time and space to identify and then heal the underlying beliefs. Over the long term, though, it is more effective to do the inner work so that your world doesn’t end up getting super small. With that said though, you may find that there are just certain people you can’t be around in large doses.

      Does that answer your question?

      Prosperous Blessings,


  3. hi jennifer

    i get the inside out concept, internal first then external reflects
    question; if i hold all these things in your article, ie not good enough, fear,feeling unlovable, unable to be rich, unworthy of wealth and love and acknowledgement etc HOW do i connect with the wholeness that knows i already am those things?
    affirmations dont work, because still feel like i need to convince myself

      Hi Gayle,

      You ask an important – and really big! – question.

      The answer is in three parts.

      First, when are the moments in your life that you feel connected to that which is bigger than you (the Divine, God, Universe)? For me, it is when I am out in nature. Even if you only get a fleeting glimpse of this connection, you want to begin to purposely create that feeling. Then, as you are in it, you get to ask to be filled with the knowing that you are part of this connection. You are feeling it because you are OF it. Begin to build a foundation of knowing that you are part of the Divine (actually, it is a remembering, because you Soul knows. The human part of you has simply forgotten).

      Second, investigate ways to learn more about yourself at a Soul level. Two ways that were extremely helpful to me were: Hand Analysis and Soul Language. The more you learn, the more you begin to recognize the signs and signals that you are whole. These signs and signals help fortify the knowing that you are already whole and complete.

      Finally, you want to use some type of a healing technique that will help you release the programming that being human has layered over the top of the knowing you are whole and complete. I love EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), but there are other tools as well.

      As you allow yourself to flow through each of these steps, you’ll find yourself remembering at a deeper and deeper level that you are whole and complete. You will allow yourself to show up more fully in partnership with prosperity.

      If you would like help with any of these steps, don’t hesitate to schedule an Inner Capital Discovery Session.

      Many blessings,
