Sometimes we're so desperate to make a change, we're willing to settle for the littlest of the something we really want. This does not work. This approach does not tap into our soul potential; it taps into our human pictures and what we feel is permissible from the human point of view (usually determined from our childhood history).
When we open to our soul potential, is when things can get moving, and we can actually get what we really want and more.
If something you're looking to change in your life is not moving, is not opening up, it may be your picture is too small. See if you can open to a much, much grander vision.
The Universe loves big, wide channels of expression. When we allow only a little for ourselves, the Universe is not thrilled; it tries to give us signs to open up. The more you can open to receive you full soul potential, the easier everything will be for you, and ultimately much more fulfilling.
