I know you have heard the term ‘manifesting’ quite often in the past few years (quite often is most likely an understatement). From celebrities, to influencers, and definitely your local holistic healer… everybody is talking about it! There are countless books on manifestation such as The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and Super Attractor by Gabrielle Bernstein, that explain what manifesting actually is, how it should be done, and why it’s so important and useful. Well, I’m going to give you a little recap since it’s the beginning of the year and you might want to start manifesting your bad ass goals.
Manifesting isn’t making a wish and it is way more than positive thinking. Manifesting is about being mindful and intentional with your actions, beliefs, thoughts, and emotions in order to turn your dreams (goals) into reality. Sounds good, right? Well let me tell you how it all works.
First things first, figure out what it is you actually want! Knowing what you want, being clear and concise about you goals and dreams makes all the difference. How can you get somewhere if you don’t at least have the address?! You might not know the exact route to get to the address but at least you have a place in mind of where you are headed.
Write down your goals and dreams. I don’t mean just think about it, I absolutely mean WRITE IT DOWN! You’ve set the intention by figuring out what you want but now is the time to put it down on paper or on a screen- somewhere you can see it on a regular basis. Writing it down is the way the universe or your higher power can hear and receive it so that what you want can be delivered to you. A great way to materialize your hopes, dreams, and goals is through vision boarding where arts and crafts meets goal setting in the best way possible. And even better is I’m facilitating a vision board workshop twice in January and I think you should definitely sign up for one of them.
Take steps towards the goals you are trying to achieve. Manifesting isn’t just ask and you shall receive. A genie will NOT just grant you your 3 wishes here. Action from you is necessary to make it all work out. It’s a collaborative effort between you and the universe/higher power.
And lastly, get rid of the negative to allow the positive to make it’s way in. If you are constantly thinking of worst case scenarios, talking crap to yourself, and allowing fear to run your life, then it’s less likely that the things you want will happen. Change your mindset and your behaviors. Be mindful and intentional about how you move, what you say to yourself, and the energy around you.
Be patient and consistent. I wish what you ask for could come swift, fast, and in a hurry but that’s not how this works. I’ve manifested many wonderful things over the years and some things are still on there way. How do I know they are on there way? It’s simple…manifesting…and because I said so!
