How To Start Manifesting The Shit Out Of Your Life Boo!!
We have all been given the freedom to make our own decisions and to use that power to create a reality that excites us at every level.
It’s simply our birthright.
Call me optimistic, but I am of the belief that everything happens for a reason. All that we experience in life, the good, the bad, and the unexplainable; they all happen for reasons that may or may not be known to us.
I would be remiss to believe that we as humans have all the answers. If that were true, health epidemics, global conflicts, and other things would not be plaguing our society right now. While somethings in life remain a mystery, I’m also excited to live in a world where I don’t have to wait for things to happen to or for me.
I have the power to create my own dope ass reality through intentional manifesting; and babes, I’m happy to announce that you do as well!
The phenomenal thing about having free will means you also have control!
You have the power to decide instead of just allowing things to happen. Your happiness, your life’s desires are all things YOU have control over. BUT it starts with you deciding on the life you want to live, visualizing yourself living this life and implementing a plan that will allow you to achieve it.
In other words, MANIFEST THE SHIT out of your life.
DECIDE on what you want instead of letting life sort of sucker-punch you into any ol’ situation.
I know what you’re thinking, “Sometimes I get thrown into a change that I didn’t feel ready for.” I’m not here to lie to you, so yea, that shit does happen but, do not let that discourage you.
Whether it’s by choice or circumstance, change will unfold at its own pace.
Chalk it up to one of the mysteries of life.
Manifesting is an art and a science — I believe the only way for it to really work is if you leave a bit of room for mystery while upholding faith that God, the universe, Creator, Ancestors or whatever higher being you believe in has heard your intentions and will give it to you when the time is right.
No one has THE way but I’m honored to share key points I’ve been given from mentors, teachers, and friends over the years and have practiced myself with astonishing results:
1. Change the order of this sentence: “I have to see it to believe it.” Instead, say “I have to believe it to see it.”
Manifesting your intentions can land you anything that at one point seemed unattainable.
Whereas, actualizing comes from genuinely believing that you deserve and will receive unimaginable things. If this sounds a little too Disney fairytale-eqsue for you, then I might argue you haven’t grasped the heart of manifestation. You must truly believe what you say in order for it to manifest. Now that may seem a little hard at first because you don’t know the immediate outcome. I get that. But here’s where the other half of believing enters the equation.
2. In order for any of this to work, you must not only believe in your intentions but also have faith that you have been heard.
It doesn’t matter what or who you believe in; whether it is Jesus Christ, Buddha, Allah, or your Ancestors, or your own damn self, having faith is key. When you do this, the weight of the world is lifted off of your shoulders.
3. Your input is just as important as your output: What you give is what you get.
This is the GET TO WORK part. What actions are you doing to bring those things you want into your reality? Ask yourself this and put some actionable goals down next to what you want to manifest.
4. NO ONE can interfere with your happiness.
Hold the belief that what you want is on its way and nothing can stop that. It’s okay if you lose focus. It happens! When you get off track, return to your dream. Fall back in love with your intentions. You are creating a new way of thinking by believing in your dreams. It takes practice. The more you do it the easier it gets.
5. Feel the fuck out of your manifestations
Happiness, peace, passion, love, excitement, etc.? Let yourself really experience those feelings allowing them to run through you as if things are already happening. Positive feelings enhance flow and help connect your body and your mind to your spirit. Find yourself experiencing negative emotions. That’s cool mama. Feel them, let them pass through and move back to your vision.
Your future is molded by your thoughts. Only YOU hold the power.
Success, love, and prosperity — you can and WILL have them all! It’s your birthright, sister, so go get it!
