When I first heard people talking about manifestation, I thought it was the biggest load of bullshit out there.
You think I believe that because you envisioned a shiny new car, it just showed up in your driveway?
Let’s just say, I was following the wrong people because I can tell you now from a place of certainty that manifestation is real and yes YOU can make your dreams come true.
I also want to share with you that 4 years ago, I was in one of the lowest points of my life. Give me a moment and I’ll explain how this trip down memory lane is relevant to your biggest dreams…
It was the summer of 2017 and I literally thought my life was falling apart. I spent more time crying and feeling giant pits in my stomach than I would like to admit.
My marriage was on the rocks. I didn’t want to get out of bed in the mornings. I could not see a future life that looked any different than this hell I was living in.
That’s the thing about being in your “dark night of the soul” period. You cannot for the life of you envision what it looks like to find the light.
Yet, as I sit here right now in this moment, in 2021, I will tell you that I have manifested a life I fucking love! My marriage is stronger than ever. I am the healthiest I have ever been physically. I have no debt and money is constantly flowing to me. I feel purposeful and guided everyday and I know exactly what I want and it’s all happening. And it keeps getting better because I have implemented the tools and techniques I’m going to teach you.
Before we get into the good stuff, I want to remind you of a couple of key points:
1. We all have bad days. Even when we are living our best lives! It’s part of the journey so don’t give up on yourself or freak out.
2. You must be patient! The Universe doesn’t operate on YOUR timetable. The Universe loves you and has your back, but you won’t always see it, so you must trust.
3. People will come and go in your life and that is OK. The more you manifest a true connection with yourself, the faster your dreams will come true.
These are my 7 steps to manifesting your dream life.
This article will give you the main points, but I would also like to invite you to download my Ultimate Manifestation Guide workbook so you can dive in deeper and really start implementing these tools!
Step 1: Know your core values
I talk a LOT about core values because they are incredibly important. After all, if you don’t know what you stand for at your core, how can you live intentionally?
Identifying your core values isn’t as daunting as it seems. If you haven’t already settled on 3-5 core values, make sure you go through that process.
Once you know your core values, the trick is accessing them daily. Write them down in your journal. Put them on sticky notes and stick them to your computer monitors. Write them with dry erase markers on your mirrors.
The closer you get to your core values, the faster you will get in alignment with your dreams.
Step 2: Set an intention for what you manifesting
Intention setting is super fun and it’s all about the feels. I want you to feel into your intentions with your senses. Close your eyes and breathe. When you set an intention and feel it in your body, you activate your highest vibration. This is how we co-create with the Universe!
Step 3: Be open to all the possibilities
Remember how I told you the Universe doesn’t operate on your timeline? She also doesn’t always present your dreams to you in nicely wrapped packages! That dream job you are manifesting might come to you only after you have been let go of your current job. Or you might get an unexpected flow of cash from a resource you previously didn’t know existed. The more open you are, the more you can manifest.
Step 4: Feel the joy
If you are not having fun with this, and by “this” I mean your life… then what’s the point? Feel the joy. Daily! What can you do that is fun, playful, joyful? The more you find joy, the more you will raise your vibrations and the more the Universe will respond to your big dreams.
Step 5: Surrender and trust
This step is the hardest for most of us. Because we want everything to happen now… on our own agenda. Guess what? The more you resist, the more you attract what you are resisting (the Law of Attraction works both ways friends!).
This mantra helps me the most when I’m struggling to surrender. “It’s this or something better.” Repeat that to yourself daily and remind yourself that everything you desire is already here and on its way to you.
Step 6: Ask for signs
Signs are everywhere! You just have to be open to receiving them. Spend some time each morning and close your eyes and ask for signs. Maybe it’s a butterfly or a certain animal. Maybe it’s a communication from a friend or loved one. You don’t have to know specifically what the signs are, but ask for them and then keep your eyes open because they are everywhere.
Step 7: Take aligned action
When you follow all these steps, you are aligning yourself with the flow of the Universe and the flow of positive vibrations. You have to activate your manifestations by taking action in at least one small way each day. That could be stating what you are grateful for or journaling. It could be calling someone up to say hello. It could be watching a YouTube video to learn a new skill related to what your big dream is.
The more you get in alignment and take action each day, the more you will get into the space of co-creation.
Remember, the Universe loves you unconditionally and you truly can manifest anything and everything you desire. Follow these steps and download the Ultimate Manifestation Guide and start watching your big dreams come true.
