I'll give the simple example of trying to manifest growing six inches taller. How can I possibly answer that? Even more mundane examples, I just can't understand what the question is asking from me. If you know why, you simply correct the issue! So... help? The answer I usually come up with, or arrive at after digging deeper, is "I don't know".

I tried that approach but I did not manage to extract an answer from them. Can you help explain this to me?

Give me a bit to read through the answers there more thoroughly, get a feel for what approach they took in trying to explain, and see if I can frame it in a language that would be more acceptable to you.

Hopefully one of the gurus will come along and do a much better job of this in the interim, but if not I'll definitely take a swing at it.

That will be much appreciated.

Since much of the information out there is already very valuable, and I've been distracted by stuff like eating and such, this will be a bit of a longer process than I had previously intended. I'll try to give you the best answer I can as I am able, but do bear in mind that there are considerably wiser and more experienced individuals here who have already put quite some time and effort into explaining this concept. I'll still try to take an approach from a different vantage point than they did.

The purpose of this question is to help you identify what your personal beliefs are regarding the situation. Your beliefs are what is shaping the reality around you and if what you're creating is not what you prefer, than you need to change those beliefs. But you can't change them if you haven't first identified what they are.

So why aren't you growing taller? If I were to guess, from observing your previous postings and questions, I'd say you don't believe that it's possible. You don't believe that people can grow that much past a certain age. But there's more to it than that and you know yourself much better than I do, so really listen to what's going on in your mind when you think about this. Explore your thoughts around it and write down everything you believe and feel right now about it.

Here's a couple more examples that might help you find what you're looking for,

-Why don't I make more money? Some common answers: I don't deserve it, I don't have enough skills for better paying jobs, I don't have the intelligence to find creative ways to make more of it, I am unlucky, money is evil, money only comes to those who work hard and I'm not willing to work hard, most of the people I know are poor so why would I be any different, I'm a bad person and I'm being punished, or perhaps some idea of having some divine purpose that requires one to be poor.

-Why am I alone? Some common answers: I'm not pretty enough, I'm not outgoing or fun enough, I'm not lovable or likable, I'm undeserving of another's love, I'm afraid of being hurt, I'm carrying too much emotional baggage or am too much to handle, I'm being punished for past wrongs or life is supposed to be a struggle/battle.

Does this help you understand what the question is asking? These beliefs are the blocks/resistance in your life. The idea is to explore and identify these beliefs, since many of them easily become second nature to us and are not always obvious on the surface.

It is not just a question of "is it possible?", because something can be possible and still not happen. A simple answer would be "Because my growth plates are fused" but honestly, that is a belief created "after the fact" to -explain- the lack of growth. So that is not WHY I am not six inches taller, unless we are talking objectively. So the only answer I can come up with is "Because I don't know how to get it".

I think your way of base here. The fact that you want to be six inches taller is a limiting belief in-itself. These are not your true limiting beliefs. These are mind based diversions keeping you from truth. This is how limiting beliefs protect themselves.

Why do I feel I need to grow six inches taller would be getting closer to the truth. You need to raise your consciousness to get in touch with your true limiting beliefs. I suggest daily meditation for this. This will also put you in touch with your emotions again which I suspect you have cut yourself of from.

It is not a limiting belief, though it may be what you use the term "limiting belief" to describe. It is a desire. What you are telling me is that all this stuff about "limiting beliefs" is just a sneaky way of tricking people into killing off desire.
