When I was living in a tiny Venice apartment, my room was about the size of my bed and a small dresser. I woke up every morning with barely any room to change. I had to walk out into the cramped bathroom, which was elbow to elbow. I wasn't necessarily stoked on my setting.
I was only 21, and as someone who was a bit competitive with myself, I knew that this didn't have to be my reality. So I read. I would stay home on my night off and read while others were out at bars. I would study about how to re program your subconscious mind.
I used to go out all the time too, but I realized that in the same bars, I never found any answers. It was time to rewrite my story, and rewire my thinking. And so I started to get creative.
I decided that I was grateful for the things I currently had. I quit comparing myself to the kids who had extra help. I decided I would take the reins, put my big girl panties on. I decided I would design the ideal life for myself in my mind, and imagine living it.
So, while I had my life, I basically created this magical "treehouse" in my mind. I liked it there. When I walked inside, the whole world was waiting for me. I could do anything, be anywhere, and everything I needed and wanted was at my fingertips. I painted it in detail. I used all of my senses. I could hear waves crashing outside of my window and see the golden sun setting on the horizon. I was no longer living in a sardine can, but in a space where I felt comfortable and free.
Can you imagine a time where you painted the perfect picture of a scenario; you could smell taste touch FEEL that one thing, and then it arrived like magic?
Yeah. That's what I'm talking about. Making your visions become reality.
It didn't just "happen." It wasn't just a coincidence. You tapped into the infinite intelligence inside of you and created an ideal picture. The fact is, you are manifesting as we speak. This exact moment is a manifestation of what was in your mind "before" it. Everything you have thought in the "past moments" has lead you to this exact scenario you are living in. The reason I keep putting past and future in quotations is because those two things are illusions. There is only NOW. So if you can be where you want to be in your mind NOW, then you will manifest within "time" or instantly.
Think of your current situations- are there things you wish you could change? Well avoid those thoughts that resist and limit you and replace them with ones of belief that you can create an IDEAL picture for yourself.
In order to really make major waves in your creative abilities (life manifestation and creation) you must first restructure your beliefs about yourself. Can you write down 5 core beliefs that were fed to you as a product of your environment, or that someone once told you- and you accepted them as TRUTHS?
When I started this process mine looked something like this:
Try this- and write many beliefs that you would like to change and replace. Then as a ritual, burn the old limiting beliefs and it's important to watch them burn and crackle in the fire- as you THANK them for what they taught you.
In this moment you are now able to release them, and receive new! Just the way you would clean out your closet and get rid of old things that are no longer serving you- so that you can attract NEW beautiful energies... clothes... (everything is energy) into your life! Once you do the burning- go and take a shower or a cleansing bath and as the water washes over your body, imagine all of the old thought patterns and beliefs fall off of you and stream into the drain.
Another aspect of manifestation is using a dream board as a tool, that will be covered in our next manifestation post.
Every day, read your new belief system, as many times as you like. The most magical and magnetic hours for this is right when you wake up and right before you go to sleep.
