I don’t know where to begin in sharing my story of manifesting my move to Bali; it’s a tricky one.
Okay here goes…
I have so much to share, it has been a fricken messy and equally beautiful journey, that’s life; hey, I could waffle about it for days, even weeks, months, years; but on that note, I’m actually planning on writing a book one day, it’s on the manifesting list…
I have had a dream for as long as I can remember of living on a tropical island, I don’t know where this dream came from as I had never been to a place like Bali (or anywhere tropical actually) as a child, but I remember flicking through travel brochures when I was younger and seeing images of these tropical places, the beaches, the greenery, the sunshine, the culture the list goes on.
I used to imagine what it would feel like to live in these places, what I would be doing, and exactly how it would look.
Time passed, and years went by, but I always held this dream.
It is only during the past 12 years since I started on a spiritual path, I began to understand even more about the power of manifestation, and how our thoughts and feelings create our reality.
It all started in 2008 on holiday in Crete sat on the beach when someone told me about, The Secret.
The secret to it all was in a book, aptly named The Secret, it’s all about the law of attraction, and I wanted to know everything about it; I was hooked, and my life began to change in mysterious ways…
If you have not read it, I would definitely recommend it!
It’s a wonderful place to start manifesting your dreams…
I was dreaming big, don’t we all, but at times I almost gave up, this is all a part of the journey too, the messy and the beautiful.
Thorugh the challenges in life, we learn and grow.
I was often tired of waiting for my magical moment to happen; I saw other people following their dreams and living the life I so desired and would question what am I doing wrong?!
Then it clicked, I had a realization that I was in my own way; I was blocking myself.
Although I understood the law of attraction, and I knew what I needed to be doing/feeling I still had many doubts, worries and fears.
I was blocking myself with my worries and my lack of self-love and limiting beliefs.
‘Why can’t I just get out of my own god damn way’, I thought to myself…
Whatever you believe to be true is true. Your beliefs are the building blocks of your conscious thought, and they create your reality…
We adopt our beliefs from the people around us, our environment, our upbringing, our culture and our experiences.
What are your beliefs?
Life is hard, or Life is for living.
It really is an inside job, and once you realise you have everything you need within, life really can take a magical turn for you.
Here are some of my tops tips, and some of the tools that I use for manifesting my dreams.
BE PRESENT – Sit or lie down in stillness, and become aware of your thoughts, watch them without judgment. Listen to the whispers of your body. The body will reveal your real beliefs. If you are stressed, stuck, struggling, joyous, in the flow – your body reflects this. Become aware of what your body is telling you; awareness is key.
BE PRECISE – Know exactly what you want, and be very precise, get clear, know how it looks, sounds, smells, tastes and most importantly feels. Know the when, the where and the why. You don’t need to know the ‘how’ right now.
FEEL IT – Get clear on your vision, sit and meditate on it, visualise it! (I share exactly how in my online course A Messy Kinda Beautiful )
WRITE IT – Write it down, write your vision down in the present tense, as though its already here, I did this many a time, I even read it out to my close friends. Write every- single detail, like your writing the story of your life. ‘you already are’ / ‘you already have’.
My visualisation/manifestation pages started like this – I woke up at 7 am to the sounds of the birds chirping, I could feel the warm breeze blowing into the sunlit room and caressing my skin, Rico lay next to me still fast asleep, looking so peaceful and radiant with his golden tan. After taking in all the sounds, I rose out of bed and walked outdoors to the smell the flowers and the see the beauty of the tropical garden, the birds singing, and a gecko was making an unusual sound under a bush somewhere. I am feeling full of love and gratitude; I dived in the pool, the refreshingly cool water, made me feel so alive, I am so blessed for each and every day. I then ventured to…
I would read this over and over again, and quite often rewrite the story, as you write, do so from your heart and feel it all.
GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY – Get out of your own way. Observe what resistance arises, notice when limiting beliefs appear, and bid them farewell, change your thoughts to that of love, not lack. Clear space, be a transmitter to receive what you are calling in. There are many more techniques of which I also share in my course A MESSY KINDA BEAUTIFUL.
TAKE ACTION – Take small steps if that feels better for you, often beauty lies on the other side of fear, so we have to step out of our comfort zone, I am sure you have heard the quote, “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
If you want to change your career, start looking into new jobs, join a new community, chat and connect to other people working in the industry you want.
If you want to move halfway across the World as I wanted, start looking into the options how, and again notice where you hit blocks? I.e. money, lack of self-belief, worried about the opinions of others etc.
Start to prepare for it, attracting the energy you wish to receive. So I started selling up the things in my house, I purchased a huge suitcase and started to pack the belongings I would take with me, I put things in boxes that I wanted to keep and put into storage, I told my friends my plans, this made it more real for me and released all the negative beliefs that came to me by replacing them with faith that I was on the right track. Then the magic happens when you surrender, opening yourself up to new possibilities.
“Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”
― Eckhart Tolle
FEEL IT SOME MORE – It all comes to feeling, we already have everything we need, and once we know that, we hold the key to our reality, you are peace, love and abundance, it all lies within you.
“Imagination is everything its a preview of life’s coming attractions” – Einstein.
Look at all the beautiful things you have manifested already in your life, give gratitude and love.
You are beautiful.
