Manifesting is simply learning to choose feelings, thoughts and actions (really in that order of importance) that line up with what you want.
It’s simple, but maybe not be so easy all the time.
It’s simple because logically, most of us understand that our feelings, thoughts and actions have an energetic component to them—anger has an energy, love has an energy, jealousy has and energy, forgiveness has an energy. Just as actions and thoughts have an energy as well.
So . . . the whole idea with manifesting is that we can get closer to what we want by choosing energy that is similar. If we want health, think healthy thoughts, feel healthy feelings and then match it up with healthy actions.
If we want more money, feel good feelings about money, think good thoughts about money and act in ways that support prosperity. For example, an energy of prosperity wouldn’t throw away pennies or leave money laying around. An energy of prosperity would appreciate money, even down to the penny. An energy of prosperity wouldn’t speak often of being broke or not being able to afford things. An energy of prosperity would feel, think and act in alignment with already having wealth, even though it may not be there yet.
Manifesting is simply choosing how we feel, think and act from a conscious, aware place. Then we sit back and enjoy having that energy come back to us in the form of things we desire.
You gotta feel it, think it and see it (in your mind, know it) and consciously CHOOSE to know it’s on its way—in order for it to be on its way.
It’s the removal of doubt from your thoughts and feelings.
And, it’s not the “fake it until you make it” energy. This isn’t about lying to yourself. It’s about making realistic changes in how we think, feel and act.
To go from a checking account balance of $100 to saying that you will have a million next month is most likely not an energetic match. There is probably a good portion of your energy that doesn’t really believe that is true.
In other words, you may really feel like you can have that million in a month, but it may take a good hard look at your patterns of thoughts, feelings and behavior to really uncover your deeper feelings about prosperity. Maybe you were brought up feeling like people who have money are selfish, snobby or materialistic. Maybe you grew up believing money is too hard to make, so what’s the point?
Manifesting is learning how to get the health, wealth, happiness and personal growth we desire by being choosy about how we feel.
Feeling angry is a choice. Feeling fearful is a choice. Feeling faithful is a choice. Feeling hopeful is a choice. If you can learn to be conscious about what you choose to feel, you are on the road to being a ninja at manifesting.
Manifesting is simply learning how to master your choices, so that you can master your life.
p.s. Ever dream of going to the south of France? How about strolling through Provence and getting super clear about your desires? How would it feel to spend 3 days in Provence and come home KNOWING who you are, what you want and how to make it happen? Stay tuned for information on my Provence trip this summer/fall!
Have you ever felt like giving up? Like you work so hard at something with little to no reward?
Or, do you find yourself getting upset (a mini-meltdown) because you see others doing what you are doing, but they seem to be rewarded for their hard work?
Do you compare yourself to others and think . . .
- It’s easier for them to make money—they have the wealth you want.
- It’s easier for them to have an amazing body—they have the health you desire.
- It’s easier for them to have that successful businesses—they have the success you would love.
- It’s easier for them to be happy—they have the happiness you strive for.
- It’s easier for them because______________ (fill in the blank).
I am sure you have heard the saying, “Dont’ give up when you are 3 feet from gold.” I first read this in Naploen Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich. It’s the idea that many people give up, just before they are about to find gold (or the results they desire in their lives or businesses).
From a life and spiritual perspective, we often think that if we don’t see results from our efforts right away, then it must not be working…..there must be something “off” with our vision, our dream or our plan.
There will be times on our journeys (as humans, entrepreneurs, healers, coaches, business owners, moms!!) that we will need to STRETCH personally and professionally. That we will feel a bit of discomfort as we move past limiting beliefs in order to get to our “gold.”
The “gold” being whatever it is we desire—health, wealth, happiness, money or connecting relationships.
There is a difference between the kind of discomfort that is guiding and gently nudging us through our limiting beliefs (and growing) and the discomfort of pushing against things that truly do not serve us.
How do you know the difference?
You know the difference because of how it feels. Something that is truly not working for us any longer and no longer serves our higher intentions and goals—feels different than things that are truly taking us to a new level of growth in our lives.
The idea that life should always feel good and we should always be happy—in all honesty—is a disservice to many people and a flaw (I think) in the self-help world.
I think many people feel bad, or like there is something wrong with them for feeling discouraged, disappointed or having meltdowns over not being where they want to be. Sometimes these feelings can actually facilitate the shift.
Sometimes these “negative” or intense feelings can be the catalyst to have the miracle—or metamorphosis—happen for you.
It can be these uncomfortable feelings that push you that extra bit to find your gold, your reward and your personal best.
It can be those very meltdowns that are the kick in the butt to get you to the next “level.”
The key to manifesting and really living the life you desire is learning to keep your vibration consistently high. This doesn’t mean there wont be meltdowns or disappointments, it just means we use those to move forward rather then using them as an excuse to slide backwards. The meltdowns can be a great signal that we are on track and on the verge of striking it rich!
Whatever it is you want to manifest—prosperity, health, success, happiness—it’s about getting super focused on choosing to keep your vision in mind (the stack of gold, the body you desire, the travel, the love) no matter what is happening around you.
It’s not giving up right before the miracle.
Know, believe, trust and have faith.
Choose to be relentless about your desires.
Choose to be unwavering in the pursuit of your truth.
In love + gratitude,
p.s. I guide and coach women to live lives that are meaningful, rich and rewarding. I help strategize so that you can manifest what you want and discover what it really means to feel your truth, your voice and your authenticity. Many of us don’t know what that means….to feel authentic, to know our truth and to really access our voice.

Choice matters most because choice means freedom.
Choice matters most because without it, you wouldn’t have options.Choice matters most because it means you have creative control over certain things in your life.
Choice matters most because it holds you accountable for your life. If you are the one choosing, it’s up to you, right?
Choice matters most because without it, all the other stuff wouldn’t matter that much.
Without choice we are prisoners, victims, puppets. We are without hope, vision or dreams.
Without choice there is no vanilla or chocolate, no play it safe or go big, no decaf or regular, no love or hate.
Even in the most horrible, dire situations, you have a choice in how you feel, how you react and what you choose to believe.
How you feel is a choice and also the most important thing to master, if you want to learn how to get what you want in life.
Choice may not be the sexiest, most alluring topic….. at least on the surface. But when you really take a minute to think about what choice means, really means to you—it is sexy. It is alluring. It is super cool. It is powerful. It is a massive gift that is often taken for granted.
Choice is the very thing that makes your life meaningful or miserable. It has equal power to be destructive as it does to be constructive.
You choose health. You choose wealth. You choose happiness, growth and success. You can also choose the negative stuff too.
Learning how to master our choices is about learning to be aware, conscious and alive. Learning how to use the gift of choice to consciously direct the flow of our lives is what manifesting is all about. Being a conscious chooser is the beginning stage of learning to manifest (getting what we desire through the energy we put out into the world).
I LOVE the fact that we have choices, but many of us just don’t see it as the incredible gift and powerful tool that it is. How many people do you know who continue making the same bad choices over and over again? Or those who seem to make great choices in certain areas of their lives, but not so much in others. Or those who seem to go around and around with their choices and never seem to have clarity.
If you want something that isn’t coming to you, it’s as simple (maybe not always easy) as shifting the choices you are making . . . right down to the choice in how you feel, what you think and how you react.
Having the abundance and success you desire is about making aligned choices with those desires. Having the health and body you want is about making those same choices (and it’s not just about exercise and nutrition . . . it’s about how you feel and what you think).
Getting clear about how you make choices, how to be better with the ones you have and how to improve the way you do choose and decide . . is key to manifesting your sexy, alluring, healthy and abundant life.
I love helping people become dialed-in choice makers and manifesting ninjas. Let me know how I can help you get to where you really want to be in your life. There is no point in postponing a life you deeply enjoy.
It starts with a choice and a desire.
For all you biz owners out there who blog on a regular basis—how are you feeling about it?
Bored? Like no one is listening? Like you are writing your blog posts for yourself, or that it just isn’t lighting your fire anymore?
How about those of you who are browsers of blogs—what keeps you going back? What keeps you away? What keeps you interested or enthralled?
How do we, as online entrepreneurs and coaches—turn browsers into believers and/or buyers?
Here are 6 tips to keep your blog posts interesting and producing results (because there is little point in doing it if we aren’t getting the results we desire).
- Choose a topic or subject that you are genuinely interested in and know well. You can’t keep yourself or others interested and coming back to your blog if you aren’t 100% confident in your topic. You are the expert, you are the content creator, so make it matter. Even if it’s a topic that isn’t totally related to your expertise, make sure you have done your research on it before you write about it or review it.
- Choose a unique way to present it! Instead of just creating a blog post, maybe do a weekly vlog to mix it up. Many successful online entrepreneurs have moved to a combination of blogging and vlogging. Be unique and true to you! This isn’t about copying others out there. It’s about finding your unique way to present it. Use a combination of inspiration and information.
- Create a clear plan and vision for your blog/vlog. Create a regular schedule, and then do your best to stick with it.
- Analyze your content and see what’s creating a buzz and what’s not. What blog posts are getting more comments and responses? Consider creating similar or related content for your more popular posts.
- Ask! Ask you subscribers what they like and don’t like. What’s useful and whats not so useful? You can use something like survey monkey to create a quick survey and send it out to your list.
- Don’t become a slave to it. The purpose of having a blog is to engage, educate and inspire your audience. If you aren’t accomplishing those things—switch it up. There is no point in doing the same thing over and over again if it’s not getting you closer to what you want and making you feel good. There is no point in spending time creating blog posts each week if it feeels like a drain. Use your imagination. Get creative with it!
Creating useful, interesting, juicy content is the thing that will turn our browsers into believers…and then potential buyers. But in this land of information overload, you have to find a way to deliver content that is practical and purposeful. Blogs and vlogs are how we connect with our peeps. It’s how we build trust and showcase our expertise.
If we aren’t into it, our readers aren’t gonna feel it either.
If you aren’t offering a little more than just information—then your readers (or watchers) will get bored….and so will you.
What does this have to do with choosing wiser and living larger?
If we want success, happiness, health, growth—all those good things—then we need to infuse passion and our authenticity into every aspect of our lives. That includes our business, our products, our blog posts . . . all of it! And for the blog/vlog readers—it’s important for you to spend your time reading and watching things that really do it for you! No more wasting time on things that don’t truly serve us.
An amazing life and business is really just a choice away. Learning how to really listen to who we are, what we desire and then going for it, is the key to living a powerful, passion filled life. It’s the key to manifesting a life of health, prosperity and happiness.
Any trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles will leave any person asking themselves, “what the (bleep) happened to social etiquette?”
Or, is it just me? I was recently at the DMV and was a bit grossed out by people sneezing very near me and several VERY loudly talking cell phone users.
What does this have to do with choosing our way to our desires, living a conscious life and being manifesting ninjas, you ask?
How does social etiquette relate to having the health, success and happiness we desire?
It circles back to those things because social etiquette, and being conscious and considerate of others, is a choice. And if we aren’t being conscious out in the world and in our lives, we will most likely attract that energy back to us.
Some would say that if we experience rude or impolite people on a regular basis, we may want to look at how we may be showing up in an unconscious way in our own lives.
Even if it’s being unconscious to our own body by eating food that doesn’t serve us, or silently harboring negative energy towards someone. Just because it’s silent to them doesn’t mean it’s silent to the universe.
Sometimes I find all of this easy to believe (when it isn’t me getting the karmic 2 x 4 upside the head), and other times I brush it off a bit too easily. Who me? No way!
It’s the common trap of believing in certain things, but then not applying them in our own lives.
That’s not how it works though.
We don’t get to believe in these spiritual laws only when they serve our agenda..…often an agenda of not wanting to look at our own negative patterns.
If we expect money and wealth, we will get it. If we expect lack of health, we will get it. If we expect happiness in our lives, then we will get it.
I am being totally transparent here. I make mistakes. Being conscious is about owning our mistakes and owning what we are experiencing in life.
I may not be out sneezing on people in public, or loudly talking on my cell phone in the DMV or other public places, but what I noticed is that I was having a strong reaction to these people. I was also having a strong reaction to drivers. My energy was not calm, clear or grounded when I got in the car. My energy was a bit expectant of sharing the road with bad drivers. So guess what I manifested?
People not using their turn signals. People on their cell phones while driving. People driving way too slow. People always seeming to be asleep while driving.
I had developed a mild case of road rage, and that is why I was attracting these negative situations in my life. I was being annoyed and then judgmental about fellow drivers and expecting rude, unconscious behavior from them. So, that’s what I got!
Once I became aware of this, I shifted my energy and shifted attracting things or people to be annoyed with.
The universe delivers what we expect. It may not come in the exact package we expect, but we will receive a similiar energy back.
That is why it’s so important to be aware of what’s happening around us.
What are we attracting? What beliefs are we consiously aware of? What beliefs are under the surface?
Getting clear about how you really, really, truly feel about things is the first and most important part in learning to create your dream life with the power of choice + manifesting.
The power to choose how we react, what we think, how we feel and what we choose to focus on is the very thing that will help us attract health, wealth, success and happiness in our lives.
What do you expect in your life? Do you see a direct correlation between what you expect and what you create? Let me know. I love hearing from you!! Leave a comment and let me know if you relate to this and how you see it showing up in your life.
Ciao for now!
