Manifesting Power

Through Your Role

I strongly believe that we all are leaders in our own lives! Do you agree? Do you take a leadership role in your own life for you and your whole being? Simply put it is about taking the time to value who we are and what we have to offer! 

Your love and confidence as well as your intelligence and intuition! Tuning into your power and tapping into your spirit. Basically living your life on your own terms!

To nurture and nourish your whole being! Through building a great relationship and deeper connection with your whole being. By putting perfection and high expectations on the down low. By being the person you are!

Your Mindset

How do you perceive and receive your world and the world around you? 

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Are you serving your best interests?

You need to know the “whys” when it comes to what you need and want as well as crave and desire! Being mindful and fully aware. Tuning into your senses. You also need to know how to release and let go of what is no longer serving your best interests! 

  • Are you stunting your growth in any way?

You matter and are important! If you are willing and open, you are more than capable. You have to open yourself up to the possibilities and opportunities!

  • Are you sticking to your rules when it comes to acting?

Sometimes your mind rules your actions! You may have to throw out the rule book. You may need to let your heart in to play more! 

  • Are you proactive or reactive?

You need to make the time to connect with your whole being! Find that quiet space to center and connect. Reflect and release. Discover the movement and flow to your whole being again! 


Being . . . Creating . . . Living . . .

Your Dimension

You are more than one dimension! You have breadth by learning, developing and growing. You have depth through your experiences. All of what you experience enhances and expands you and your world!

A major part of adding dimension is through building a relationship with yourself!

  • Believing and trusting in yourself.
  • Knowing how you want to be treated to value yourself and your worth.
  • Nurturing and nourishing yourself and your whole being.
  • Answering those “whys” to ask for what you need.
  • Well being through self being; love, kindness, care, compassion, etc.

Your Journey

Remember you are the author in creating your story! You are the navigator in your journey!

It is about learning from the past and being in the present! What do you need? Are you being true to who you are? Be an active participant and show up for you in living your life!

Happiness

Exercise It???

Have you heard of Will Jelbert and his book called The Happiness Animal? Healthy body = healthy eating and healthy exercise. Healthy happiness = healthy exercise. “How we exercise our spirit determines the strength of our happiness.” 

In The Happiness Animal, you are introduced to the five muscles that can be exercised to make your “Happiness Animal” stronger. “What if you could exercise your happiness like you exercise your body?” Why not give it a go!

  1. Tolerance
  2. Kindness
  3. Honesty
  4. Awareness
  5. Courage

Talk about a revelation that just resonates with me! 

I did not know I was working a happiness muscle in being curious. I am a questioner. Searching for answers. Seeking out and striving to learn, grow and experience!

I think we all question and ask ourselves.

  • Who Am I?
  • What Is My Purpose?
  • What Do I Want To Do?

I think we also tune into our emotions, feelings and thoughts.

Do you tune into your emotions, feelings and thoughts?

  • It is important to accept, own and respect your emotions and feelings.
  • It matters to have a voice and express yourself, especially sharing your thoughts, talents, stories, etc.
  • It is okay to be humble and vulnerable.
  • It is good to have humility.

We all need our tribe along with that sense of belonging and being part of a community. That rawness and realness in people who truly are connecting to their emotions, stories and reality. That empowerment to be who you really are from the inside out. That force and energy within you that powers you and has you in control. That strength of acceptance and humanness!

Here’s to Exercising, Especially Our Happiness and Healthiness. Love to Hear Your Thoughts, Please Share.


Manifesting Attraction

What Are You Desiring

Do you believe in manifesting attraction you get what you wish for?

Think about . . .

#1 – Creating reality.

Can you create your reality?

You have the power to control and drive. Of course to a degree since some things are out of our control. Through that power you make decisions and choices for yourself. Through that control you have the ability to respond or react as well as take action or not.

As surely as mountains are to be climbed and oceans sailed, your dreams are meant to come true.
This is why you’re here, to live the life of your dreams.
Not to be tested, challenged, and tried, but to conquer, champion, and rule.
Keep going, forge ahead, press on, 
and the day must dawn when your thirsts shall be quenched, and you, exalted.
Never settle for less, don’t ever think it’s too late, and never, ever, ever compromise a dream. ~Mike Dooley

#2 – Cultivating attraction.

How do you cultivate attraction for yourself? 

Ask yourself those “whys”. To understand and define what you need.

  • Why do you need what you desire?
  • Why is it a need vs. a want?

Ask yourself those “whats”. To create, attract and/or manifest to make it happen (aka become reality).

  • What intentions are you setting?
  • What steps/goals will you take to reach your desired outcome?
  • What action(s) do you take to bring it to fruition?

Life can only give you what you are prepared to receive.

How To Attract . . .

Where does that attraction come from to get what you need and want as well as crave and desire?

  • Building self confidence and independence.
  • Taking risks.
  • Learning to develop and experience growth.
  • Gaining experiences.

Confidence is not about being fearless and reckless. It is your ability to be aware of your fears. Do you know your strengths as well as your weaknesses? Do you own your power and strength and use that to your best advantage! 

It is about believing in yourself and being true to who you are. Do you like “you”? Do you know what you do well at? That is a powerful attractor asset to have! 

Do you make time for you? To take care of you and your needs! Do you spend time working on you, especially in knowing your abilities and skills? This helps you be confident, independent and self sufficient!

Golden Glitter

Wandering . . .

Ms. Healthy Diva Life recently wrote a blog post called Feeling Good & A Little Lost. It does feel good to feel good. It is okay to feel lost. Just ease into the wandering, right!

Talking about feeling lost made me think of J.R.R. Tolkien. “All That Is Gold Does Not Glitter” is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien for his fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings.

“All that gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien


Glittery . . . Shiny . . .

We all experience that feeling of being lost and at times we may find we lost ourselves too in the process! How do you continue moving forward? How do you get back on track in living your life? This is when you need to take a time out and make time for yourself to do a self check!

Ask Yourself . . .

  • Do you know your “whys” when it comes to what you want?
  • Do you know what you want to do?
  • Do you know what makes you happy?
  • Do you know how to release and let go of what is no longer working best for you?

You wonder and wander! It is perfectly normal and okay to not know where you are going at times in living your life. Tune into your emotions and tap into your feelings to connect to your inner being. Really ask yourself the questions above to determine what truly excites you to move your whole being again! 


Wandering . . .

Focusing inward helps you in being aware of your mind and various energies as well as your heart and physical being too! It is perfectly normal and okay to be all over the place. Take the time to stretch your comfort zone in trying new things. Make mistakes to learn and develop. Gain new experiences to experience growth. Really wander!

Look at what you do have in your life! Appreciate and celebrate it. Be grateful and thankful. Each and everything received and given is a true blessing!

My grandmother talked about patience (which I have very little of – ha!). She talked about . . . In having patience you will find your purpose. Challenges, stresses and struggles will test your patience fully and completely. Throughout that test and the test of your patience will come your plan; your game plan, your next plan, etc. You will get through it and become a stronger person for it!


Making Time to Be!

We all grow by experiencing change! Practice to learn, develop and experience. We all change to transform! Practice to progress. We all go through life transitions! 

Practice . . . maintaining your center of balance, your health and happiness, and feeling good about yourself and where you are at. Be the Captain in steering your life, especially your healthiness and happiness!

Practice . . . self love and self care and compassion, owning and embracing your messy self, and counting your many blessings. The love you have for yourself matters in being there for yourself and your greatest someones! 

Practice . . . sharing, receiving and giving, coming from a place of love, and following your heart and your loves and passions and desires. Really lead with your heart and the rest of you will fall into place and be along for the ride!

Practice . . . that life is not a sprint to the finish line and to take the time to wander, get lost, find your way, and just journey along!

Manifesting Energy

Through Your Inner Self

 Think vitality and quality of life! 

Intuition

How do you tune into your inner self? Do you tune into what you need and tap into your energy. Do you really let your intuition in when it comes to reflecting vs. reacting. Especially in taking the time you need when it comes to making decisions and choices that work best for you and your whole being!

Your inner guidance. Does it give you energy. Does it allow you to open a bit more. How do you drown out the noise to really listen to it to guide you!

How do you tune into your intuition? Are you aware when it comes to what you are drawn to versus led into? Is your mind instructing you or is your gut directing you? It is important to guide yourself, especially when it comes to your inspiration and energy as well as your motivation and drive!

Your inner gut instinct. Do you listen to it? Do you value and trust it? How does it make you feel and think!

Inner Energy

How do you tap into your inner energy? By understanding the why in your needs and desires. By adding in time to relax and rest. By being inspired to be, do and take action!

What are you building for your self? The communication you have with your inner self. The interaction to your healthiness, happiness and wellness. The engagement to your vitality through learning, experiencing growth and gaining life experiences!

What are you creating for your self? Connecting to your various energies (i.e. creative, spiritual, etc.). Tuning into your passions and loves. Really doing what you love and making the time to do it!

What are you navigating for your self? The balance between structure and being more freeing. The knowing how to be and do through your needs and desires. Along with setting boundaries, you also need to create space to tune into your intuition and tap into your energies more freely!

Manifesting Investing

In Your Whole Being

Do you think of yourself as an investment? I hope you do!

When you truly feel good about yourself, you are less likely to fall for those mind traps and physical challenges you place on yourself! Yes, we all want to look good, especially on the outside and how we present ourselves to others. However, it does not define who you are!

  • What do you do to invest in your whole being, inside and out?
  • How are you worthy to yourself?
  • How do you value yourself, especially in what matters the most to you?

You have to really check in with yourself and your whole being from time to time! To see how you are doing overall. To see if you are using your time and energy efficiently and effectively. To see what you truly need!

  • How do you love yourself and your whole being?

You need to invest in YOU to get a great return on your investment! Taking care of your health and happiness. Doing more of what you love to do. Tuning into those passions and tapping into your creative being. To truly receive and give back to YOU!

  • How do you tap into your power, especially owning it?

Remember it is okay to have those moments where you are not on top of it! You realize it and that is a good first step. Stop and pause to reflect and release. It is okay to embrace it, come to terms with it and keep moving forward one step at a time!

Manifesting Receiving

To Receive, Release & Give

I was in the process of writing a blog post on manifesting receiving when I read an article On Mind Body Green by Dr. Danielle Dowling called How to Manifest Abundance In Your Relationships & Finances. Her words just SPOKE to me. The main reason her words spoke to me is the connection between receiving and releasing!

Dr. Dowling’s number one tip for abundant success is RELEASE in any are of your life! She talks about saying to yourself “I release so that I may receive.”

  • Release resentment (that you haven’t gotten it yet).
  • Release expectation (of what it should look like).
  • Release attachment (to the eventual outcome).

I think about that desire for abundance and how to attract it. I think about that need of getting what you want in your life to live your life.

It is like a teeter totter! On one side release seems simple and easy. On the other side release can be difficult and challenging. I think it comes down to being true to who you are by believing, valuing, loving, and trusting yourself! 

In knowing your essential inner being you can go after what you need, crave, want, and desire! You can find your healthiness and happiness. You can discover your passions and loves. It starts with you and from within you!

It is about building a good foundation for yourself! Practicing to shift, change and transition to develop and grow. Experiencing to live a good, full life. Creating your story as you journey along!

It is about being there and helping yourself connect more deeply to who you are and your world!

Really connecting with your whole being . . .

  • To Communicate
  • To Listen
  • To Interact
  • To Engage

It is about that triple combo in RECEIVING, RELEASING and GIVING! Being open to the possibilities and opportunities. Learning when you need to slow down, step back or even speed up a bit. Being, doing and going for what really matters to you and what you truly love to do!

Ask Yourself and Think About . . .

  • What are you learning and experiencing?
  • How are you developing and growing?
  • How do you tune into and tap into your curiosity and creativity?
  • What stories and memories are you creating along your journey?
  • How are you communicating, interacting, connecting, and engaging with yourself?
  • How are you effectively using your time and energy?

How Are You Manifesting Receiving, Releasing and Giving? Love to Hear, Please Share.


Experiences Are Part of Your Story

Creating Your Story One Experience, One Moment, One Chapter At A Time

You find your path and define it as you go along. Your path sets you on the course to journey along. Those experiences and those moments become a part of the story you create.


Journeying Along . . .

  • There are times you have to ask for help along the way. This helps you communicate, interact, connect, and engage.
  • There are times you have to ask for directions. This helps you in stopping to process. This helps you in pausing to breathe. This helps you redirect.
  • There are times you have to unpack and regroup; mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. This helps you create space and set boundaries. This also helps you learn how to release and let go of what is no longer working or serving your best interests.


Opening Up . . . Being . . . Letting Go . . .

It can be uncomfortable to open yourself up, however; vulnerability helps you grow and evolve! Being vulnerable is okay and not a weakness or flaw. It can become an essential part of who you are and how you express yourself by living from within your being! Humility goes a long way too.

We all experience the good, the bad, at times the ugly, and everything in between! You can be in control of how you make decisions and choices. You can be in control of how you respond and react. It can serve you or sabotage you and you choose which one it will be! 

Make the time to slow down and be more! All that rushing about. All those excuses about not having the time. Stop the “busyness” – your 20’s turn into your 40’s and your 40’s into your 80’s before your own eyes in hurrying and rushing about to the next and the next and the next!


Sink Your Toes Into the Sand!

Remember . . .

  • MAKE Time For Yourself. Make the space you need for you and your whole well being.
  • DO What You Love. Find the fun and play as well as the joy and happiness.
  • TAKE Note of the Beauty Around You. Practice to progress . . . Be grateful, appreciative and thankful . . . Celebrate more . . .
  • EMBRACE Your Journey. Explore, adventure, travel . . . Communicate and interact as well as engage and connect . . . Learn, experience growth and gain life experiences . . .

Your Whole Being Will Thank You & You Will Feel Better In Your Health and Happiness! What Are You Doing for Your Whole Being? Love to Hear, Please Share.


Start At The Beginning

Build From There . . .

I have been thinking and questioning lately.

  • What Brings You Joy?
  • What Challenges You In A Good Way?
  • What Makes You Want to Experience Life?

In essence “How do we live life each and every day?”! You have to begin laying that foundation to build from. You have to tune into your inner sense of direction and tap into your internal compass. You have to figure out where you are going, especially when you do not know your destination and where to even start!

One place to start is figuring out what gives you energy! Getting curious and exploring. Stretching your comfort zone in trying new things. Discovering what you love to do!

In giving yourself energy you want to connect and engage to what is going on around you! You gain focus, become more aware and pay attention more. You start communicating, interacting and connecting, especially with the skill set, experience and knowledge that you already have at hand!

Think about what engages you, especially when you have the energy! That knowing in what to do and how to do it. There is nothing better than finding your flow! 

What activities energize and engage you?

  • To be in that moment.
  • To be completely focused and involved.
  • To be in that place that either calms you or brings you joy, pleasure and happiness.
  • To be sucked in that you lose track of time.
  • To be excited and engaged.
  • To be having FUN!

Here’s A Little Inspiration and Motivation!

The Learning Path

Staying The Course

There is nothing better than when the pieces click into place! That feeling of enlightenment and lightness. That feeling of freedom with a twist of enchantment. That feeling of being proud of yourself for doing it, going through the experience and accomplishing it!

You are more open to expand, especially in your personal development and growth! Oh the possibilities and the opportunities. The creativity. The connection you have to yourself, to others and to the world you live in.

Think about how lucky and how blessed you are to experience those moments that become a part of you! That help you learn, grow and experience. That make you smile and laugh! That help you just be and to be mindful and present. That give you pure bliss, joy and happiness!  

  • You have to seek what you need and want as well as what you dream and desire.
  • You have to be open to the opportunities and be willing to learn, grow and experience.
  • You have to learn how to believe and value as well as love and trust yourself.
  • You have to tune into your inner voice and tap into your inner self.
  • You have to nurture and nourish your whole well being.

It is wonderful when your inner being finds its voice again. It is amazing when your inner guidance system kicks in and you begin sending and receiving. It is amazing when you live your life by giving your inner being the opportunity to shine from within.

Remember to find your learning path to stay on course in those good times as well as the challenging times! To come from a place of love to follow your heart. To let your inner self guide by shining through to provide much needed light. To remind yourself to journey along and not rush or race from destination to destination!
