One Simple Practice To Manifest With Lightning Speed

I’ve been thinking a lot about speed, of late.  Specifically, speed of manifesting.

Some of us are pre-disposed for speed.  While others are naturally inclined for more slow and steady.

Both styles have their strengths.  But no matter where you fall on that continuum…

… I think it’s safe to say that when we want something, we want it yesterday.  🙂

And why not, right?  If you’re going to manifest, and if instant manifestation is real (it is – more on that later)… why not bring the thing in quickly?

The great news is, we have tools that allow us to do just that.

We can consciously create speed in our manifesting… without making ourselves nuts.

So how do we consciously create speed?

You’ve probably heard me say that success in manifesting is 90% energy and just 10% execution.  And that’s absolutely true.

Unless your energy is fully aligned with what you desire, it’s unlikely you’ll create what you want.  But don’t underestimate that 10% execution.

What the execution really comes down to (and what really creates speed) is our actions.

More specifically, our aligned actions. (Read: not just the aimless DO-ing)

Energy follows energy.  Take some form of aligned action and the Universe (the Divine, Spirit, Source, “the Field”…) will match it in some way.

Aligned energy + aligned action equals aligned results.

So what’s the ONE aligned action that is very likely going to bring you what you want?

Well, of course it depends.  That’s part of the fun of the manifesting game.

But there IS one form of aligned action that is going to speed up your results in, say, 98% of the cases.  (Or maybe 99.999%.)

Before I reveal what it is, let’s take a deeper look at one of the many Universal Truths at play here.

The Law of Polarity tells us that there are no “halves” in the Universe.

You cannot have an “up” without a “down,” a “left” without a “right,” an “in” without an “out,” a “front” without a “back.”

There are always two sides, and they exist simultaneously.

So what does this mean?  That everything you truly Desire (at a soul level) is already here.   It exists already, and the way to bring it into physical form in your life is in your world already.

(This is the “instant manifestation is real” part.)

But how does it get to you – i.e., how do you receive it?

Through other people.  And the way to do that

… is to ASK.

Ask someone to have a Breakthrough Session with you.
Ask someone to step into your program.
Ask for the chance to get in front of your ideal clients.
Ask your partner to cover childcare for you for an hour so you can go to the spa.

Want to manifest $100,000?

Sure you could you could maintain a high vibration and think about having the money and hang out and wait for someone to just show up and give it to you.

That can work… sometimes.

But how about greasing the skids a little?

The quickest way to $100,000 that I know of is to create $100k worth of programs, products, services, and… ask.

In practice, the principle of “ask” works a little more like this…

You get crystal-clear-clarity.  You make a decision or create an intention, depending on your level of commitment. (There is a big difference – I cover it in depth in our magical training.)

You let go of attachments and resistance and prepare to receive it.  The opportunity shows up.

You take action on the opportunity, and…

Voilà!  It comes right in.

Sometimes you have to go through that cycle a few times, especially if releasing attachment to resistance and struggle is, well, a struggle.  Also, sometimes there are a few opportunities, one after the other, like a breadcrumbs trail.

But anyway… guess what that opportunity will involve, 99.99999% of the time?

Some form of asking.

Ask for the perfect opportunity.

Ask to be shown.

Make whatever ask is required, of the human BE-ing the Divine has sent your way, to help you on your way.

Now, I’m not saying that you’re going to have to ask humans ALL of the time.

Sometimes you ask the Divine and the perfect opportunity shows up and all you have to do is say yes.

But even then, often that opportunity will involve an ask.

For example, I got very clear a few months ago that I want to go to Necker Island to meet Richard Branson.   Not only that, I want it to be with a collective of amazing, rockstar 7-figure businesswomen who have the potential to become lifelong friends.

Literally what felt like 5 minutes after I claimed that Desire, the opportunity showed up.

One of my friends said, “Have you heard about [rockstar businesswoman]’s trip to Necker?”

Me: No.

Her: I’m sending an email recommending you right now.

Okay, so – going to Necker isn’t cheap.  It’s multiple five figures.  (All proceeds go to charity, which is cool.)

While I can create the money for anything, more importantly I’m in a partnership with Dear Husband, who is always affected in one way or another.  Of course.

So to say yes to the opportunity – I still had to ask.  I still had to have that uncomfortable conversation.

(Well, I could have NOT asked, I suppose – but that would be completely out of integrity for our partnership.)

Now here’s the interesting thing about asking.  You’re asking all the time, whether you’re aware of it or not.  You ask with your vibration – specifically, the vibration of your thoughts.

Whatever you put OUT, the Universe will match  it can’t not.  Ergo, the Divine is always sending opportunities your way.

Want those opportunities to be in alignment with creating what you want?

Ask with your energy first… then ask with your words.

Chances are, the reason why you’re not creating as quickly as you could be… is because you haven’t asked.  An easy way to create momentum is… to ask.

So what are you Desiring right now?  What’s the ASK that you can ask?

At the end of the day, the Universe wants you to have what you Desire even more than you do, and it wants you to have it quickly. It’s just as easy for the Universe to produce $1 million as it is to produce $1000, and it can do it in lightning speed.

But ya gotta ask.  Consciously.

Uncomfortable with asking or not sure how to ask? We’ve got an awesome podcast episode on this that I know you’ll love.  Check it out here.

(And we’ll dive more into the energetics of asking – and how we ASK with our energy – in a future article.)

 

 

A Fire Bowl Releasing Ritual To Make Way For Your Highest Good

 

2017 is almost here!

Have you been setting your intentions for the new year? (I have.)

Before you go too far down the path, there’s an important “pre-game” step that’s easy to overlook.

You may have heard the saying, “The Universe abhors a vacuum.”

When an energetic space is created, the Universe rushes in to fill it with something else. Hopefully, that something else is… what you Desire!

But the Divine can’t bring you anything if your energetic space is already dense or full.

To usher in new intentions, experiences or Desires, we must first create space. You need to release something of a lower nature to make room for something of a higher nature.

As with anything in magic, there are as many ways to release, clear and let go as there are magicians.

My favorite way?

Fire. Hands down. 🙂

So as we bring 2016 to a close and make way for a brand new year of possibility and magic, it’s my honor to gift you with my favorite fire bowl ritual.

IMPORTANT Safety Note: Use common sense and take the proper precautions when burning, either indoors or outdoors. If burning indoors, make sure your area is well ventilated and have water handy in case you need it. Never leave fire burning unattended, never interfere with another’s choice and remember that you are 100% responsible for your words, intentions, deeds and karma. Be smart & safe. ‘Nuff said!

A Fire Bowl Releasing Ritual
To Release What No Longer Serves And Make Way For Your Highest Good

The Supplies You’ll Need:

  • 5-10 (or more) 3”squares of paper or post-it notes
  • 1-2 sheets of tissue paper, also cut into 3-4” squares
  • Pen for writing
  • Fireplace safe to burn paper or a well ventilated area for burning in a fire bowl
  • If using a firebowl, you’ll also need:
    • Large glass/pyrex bowl
    • Thick oven mit or hot pad
    • 3/4 cup of Epsom salt
    • Rubbing alcohol, just enough to soak but not submerge the Espom salt
  • Long matches or lighter stick
  • Optional sage for smudging

The Ceremony

1.  Prepare your space, smudge with sage if desired. Bring all parts of yourself present. Ground and center, and set your intention for the ceremony.

2.  On each piece of paper, write one or two things that you’re ready to release. This could include people, situations, thought patterns, habits, or anything you wish to release.

Phrase your releasing statements intentionally. Here are two possibilities:

I release the [situation / pattern / habit] of X. I thank this [situation / pattern / habit] for serving its purpose; I choose to move on now.”

OR –

“Spirit of [situation / pattern / habit], our time together is at an end. I release thee and bid you begone.”

OR, simply –

“Begone, [situation / pattern / habit]!” 

3.  Take each square and fold it up three to five times. (Make it small, but not too small. Paper folded too tightly will not burn easily.)

4.  Wrap a square of tissue around the note, twisting the ends to make a small bundle or package, almost like a piece of candy

5.  Repeat until you’ve wrapped all of your releasing statements

6.  Prepare your fire or firebowl

  1. Place the bowl in a well ventilated area, on top of the oven mitt or hot pad
  2. Pour the Epsom salt into the bowl
  3. Cover with just enough rubbing alcohol to soak the salt, but not totally submerge it
  4. Light a long match or lighter stick and carefully touch it to the salt/alcohol mixture to ignite the flame

7.  One by one, drop your bundles into the bowl, saying 3 times aloud: “I release thee, I release thee, I release thee.”

8.  Watch the bundles burn and as they do picture these things being totally and completely lifted from you

9.  When the bundles have all burned out, say a final blessing, holding in mind that these things have now been released.

What is possible for you now that you wish to express gratitude for or bestow blessing upon?

This might sound something like:

“I now give myself permission to…

10.  Take a deep breath and enjoy the feeling of freedom, release and space. I like to finish with the following declaration:

“It is done, it is done, it is done!”

After your releasing ceremony, remember to ground your work in the physical plane by taking any actions you need in order to release and complete the situation. Throw out what needs to be thrown out, have clearing conversations with parties involved (if needed), etc.

Now you’re ready to set your intentions!

Wishing you a magical 2017,

 

A 5-Minute Ritual To Instantly Shift Your Energy

I am so happy and grateful and joyous to have been able to serve so many women in 2016!

That has been my home frequency this week, as we head into the holiday weekend, especially amid so many BIG changes, both in our community and beyond.

Let’s face it – 2016 has been a bit of a butt-kicker.

And while Christmas can be such a special time of gratitude and celebration, I know that it can also bring up a lot of stuff.

The holiday season can illuminate “the gap” – that void between where you are, and where you truly Desire to be.

(It doesn’t HAVE to, but it often does for many.)

If that’s you, you’re not alone.   2016 has been filled with some pretty challenging energy… individually and collectively.

We all want to feel good. We want to experience the magic that every day – not just the holiday – has the potential to provide.

And that can be tough in the midst of stress, upheaval, upleveling, or… you’re at your in-laws and your partner’s two older siblings have kicked off one of their screaming matches – again. 😉

So how do we keep our vibe high and energy clean, even in the midst of chaos – holiday, or otherwise?

Today I’ve got an energy practice for you, to help you do just that…

The best part – you can do it anywhere, anytime, in just about any situation, and the shift will stay with you throughout the day.

1. Get comfortable. You can do this while sitting in your meditation space, in front of your altar or anywhere you can sneak off for a few minutes to be undisturbed. (I do NOT recommend doing it in public spaces or anywhere you need to be awake and alert.)

2. Get grounded. Bring your awareness to your body; feel your feet planted beneath you, your seat on the chair, etc. Allow yourself to sink into whatever support you’re standing or sitting on; grounding in your body and breath.

3. Notice your energy source. We are surrounded by Creative, Universal Life Force Energy – all day, every day. But we often don’t notice it, as our ego mind or “thinking mind” is busy with the task of getting us through our day.

But that doesn’t mean the energy isn’t there. Your energy source is always there!

Your Essence is always there.

Allow yourself to notice or become aware of a brilliant globe of light above you, located just slightly out above your forehead. This is the light of your Essence, or what some refer to as your Highest Self.

Though you are visualizing, feeling or sensing this globe of light, it represents the pure, energetic part of you beneath the ego mind; the You that is a part of, and connected to, Divine Life Force Energy.   Notice the qualities and intensity of this light.

(When I do this exercise, the light is gold. It may be a different color for you, or if you like to work with color, you can intentionally choose the color.)

4. Allow this golden light to flow in through the top of your head and flow down throughout your body: in through your head, then down your neck and shoulders, arms, chest, back, etc… from the top of your head to your fingertips and toes.

As you allow the light in, you may wish to notice how it is clearing away any psychic debris it may encounter along its path – clearing, removing, releasing any stuck energy. Notice the sensation of this energy along its path.

5. Once the light has filled your body, allow it to expand and become stronger and brighter, allowing your being to fully inhabit this light, breathing deeply and slowly. Feel this light loving you, nourishing you, filling you with Divine healing and wisdom.

6. From this place, ask, “What is the gift in my current situation or challenge?” Allow the answer to come to you.

7. From this place, set a powerful intention for how you choose to BE in relation to the current situation.

Do you wish to feel love? Intend to be love.

Do you wish to feel peace? Intend to be peace.

Do you wish to be in a space of relaxed wisdom when, say, your mother-in-law is asking if you and your hubby ever plan to have kids… again, for the zillionth time?

Yeah. Set the intention to BE that.

Energy always follows intent, so you don’t need to “do” anything more than choose a clear path as to how you BE in this moment.

8. Give thanks to the Divine, to yourself, and to all the teachers in your life who are helping you to recognize and claim this gift. Let the light radiate your gratitude.

9. When you’re ready, open your eyes and carry this light with you as you move back into your day.

*****************

Remember that you are always surrounded by Divine life force energy – even in the midst of apparent chaos, including the holidays!

This energy is always available to you when you choose to tune into it, and this practice will help you do that every time.

Wishing you SO much love and magic this holiday season, and all the blessings your heart can hold!

Why “Divine Timing” Is A Myth

Recently, one of our clients was frustrated because her manifesting goals weren’t showing up fast enough.

After some processing, she concluded that she and the Divine must not be on the same timeline.

“I’m just going to let go and allow Divine timing to unfold,” she said.

Then she looked a little stunned as I shared that “Divine timing” as most people think of it isn’t accurate.

Indeed, 99.99% of what you may believe about “Divine timing” is wrong.

I know that might cause a bit of a record scratch in your brain.

After all, letting go is required for manifesting… right? (Right.)

If we want to become Spiritual Jedi we must accept that we don’t ever really have control over anything… right?

Let me explain…

I think we can all agree that some things take longer to manifest than we’d like.

You might set a goal for 6 months… only to have it take 2 years. Other times, something that is “supposed to” take a long time manifests in record speed.

And yet other times, the thing we Desire doesn’t seem to be manifesting at all, so we conclude that it’s not meant to be right now.

It’s not Divine timing, we may say.

Except there’s a big problem with that, vis-à-vis the Laws of the Universe.

When we have a sincere Desire, the way for it to be made manifest in our lives already exists. It’s in our world, right now.

The demand (your Desire) is not felt until the supply (the Way for you to have it) is ready to appear.

I didn’t make that up. This is the Law of Polarity. You can count on it as sure as the sun rises.

Then there’s another spiritual truth, in the process of being backed up by Science-With-A-Capital-S, which states that all spaces, dimensions and times exist in the NOW.

There is no time but right now. Therefore…

The timing is perfect.

The Divine, Source, Spirit… wants you to have it. Indeed, the Divine wants you to have it more than you do!

When? Right now.

By spiritual law, Divine timing is always now.

So what gives? If Divine timing is always now, and all time exists in the now… why isn’t it here now?

Quite simply, because we do not allow ourselves to receive it.

I’m a great example of this.

Back in early 2009, my life was kind of a mess. I’d left my last J-O-B two years earlier, and I still hadn’t really figured out how to get my business going. We were deep in debt and I was stressed out beyond belief.

Being the classic feminine high achiever, who had done all the “right” things, I felt like a failure. I couldn’t figure it out.

That was when I got the marching orders from Spirit, who I call Goddess.

“You’re going to teach magic, write books, and put the magic in the books,” She said.

I said, “You have me confused with someone else.”

And I made that classic move that we all make at some point or another when the Divine is asking us to step up…

I said no.

I didn’t accept the assignment.

I said, “I need more training, and I need to actually DO something to PROVE that I can manifest my way out of a paper bag, which by the way, I can’t right now; so there.”

So I went through coach training. I invested in mentors. I learned how to make money. I coached clients to make money. Seven years later, here I am, teaching magic exclusively.

Divine timing?

No.

People were asking for this stuff back in 2009. My clients were fascinated. They wanted more.

I was the one who was terrified.

Do I regret becoming a business coach? Was it all a big detour?

No way. It’s one of the most gratifying things I’ve ever done and has absolutely prepared me for everything in front of me now.

AND what’s also true is that the demand for my magical work was present all the way back then.  I could have stepped into it, and received it.

No “coulda, woulda, shouldas” here. It’s not bad or wrong…

…but it’s not “Divine timing.”

So if the timing really is perfect, what accounts for the huge crazy gap a lot of people experience between what they want and when it shows up?

Our level of growth.

Are we willing to be visible, claim it, let go of resistance, allow ourselves to be shown, follow the guidance, take the aligned actions and allow it in?

Most of the time, we resist. Big time. We tell ourselves stories, act out old programming, come up with a zillion excuses and all the other cute things we humans do when we begin to have a clue about what we truly Desire.

And therein lies the growth path.

I’m reminded of this when I talk to Hot Husband, who is an artist, about the creative process.

For artists, there’s the vision in our minds of what we want the finished piece to look like, he’ll say. And then there’s our skill set.

When those don’t line up, it can be really painful to lean into that gap. So instead we say: it’s not the right time, things aren’t lining up, yadda yadda.

But that’s not accurate. You would not have the Desire unless the way was already here!

Our resistance is not bad or wrong. It’s usually not even conscious!

Our resistance is the growth path.

There’s another aspect of this that requires mention, and that’s our expectation of what it “has to” look like.

I’ll use myself as an example again…

Even as a child, I knew that I was meant to live a creative life.   Creativity has always been my driver. I wanted to be surrounded by creative people doing creative things.

But growing up in a small town in Maine in the 80’s, a creative city like New York or London or Hollywood felt sooooooo far off that truthfully… I couldn’t even imagine it.

The creative path was for the hot guys in the imported British New Wave magazines I devoured at the time. (Oh man, am I ever dating myself.)

Not for me.

My 18-year-old self could have never imagined what I’d be doing creatively today! Back then the Internet as we know it did not exist. The coaching industry did not exist.

So was it Divine timing that I became a witch, a priestess, an engineer, then a coach, then finally a manifesting teacher?

Absolutely not.

Of course there was a way for me to be creative back then. I was surrounded by creative people doing creative things. Stephen King, the highest paid commercial fiction writer at that time, lived 10 minutes away. And he wasn’t exactly hiding out in his house.

It would have been a very different path… but the path was there. And I didn’t take it because I was not at a point in my growth where I could even see it.

Looking back now, my path has been just about perfect. But it was only ONE path of many, many, many. And the path was there all along.

So can we hold the perspective that everything unfolds in perfect order and timing?

I say YES. But we have to be careful not to be in the energy of bypass and giving up our power.

Instead, I invite you to be really honest with yourself – and notice the gap between what’s being asked of you and what you’re willing to allow.

It’s okay to be in that gap! It’s not about being wrong or judging or pushing yourself.

Indeed, being honest about where you are, and to love yourself in that gap, is a power secret to speeding up manifestation.

Above all, take ownership of your path. Blaming it all on “Divine timing” is still blame.

The coolest part is, as soon as you choose to bridge that gap, the outcome you want is going to be right there.

So the next time you’re tempted to blame Divine timing, PAUSE.

Instead, ask, “What is the choice that is being asked of me right now? Do I really want this? If so, what can I do to support myself in making that choice?”

Whatever your answer… it’s all good.

Whatever your answer, you’ll know where you are on your path. And you’re one step closer to receiving all your dreams in perfect order.

After all… they’re right there with you. You wouldn’t have them unless they were ready to appear.

And the power has always been in you, all along.

How To Make An Epic Gratitude List

july_2016-79

I love this time of year, especially being in the coaching and personal development world.

Over the next two days and beyond, we’ll receive a veritable smorgasbord (ha! I kill me!) of posts on gratitude, love, appreciation and giving thanks.

I say, bring it on!

It’s time to double down on the gratitude – especially this year.

And it’s the perfect time of the year to start, or renew, a gratitude practice.

Now, I’d bet a milkshake that you already have a bunch of gratitude tools in your toolkit.  (Indeed, I realized today that this is our second article on gratitude in less than two months.)

I’d like to add to that by giving you one of my all-time favorites.  (And it’s something I’ve never shared before.)

I call it – The Epic Gratitude List.

Its origins are in a practice an old friend taught me many years ago, called The List of 100.  (You can steal this too.)

The List of 100 is a list of one hundred things you’d like to be / do / have / experience in the coming year.

Some are big.  Some are small.  Some are really 3-year and 10-year goals.  The point is not to do all of them (though you will many of them, especially if you print your list off and tape it to the wall, like I do), but to list them all and put down what you really want.

So we’ll get back to that a little later (though if you want to start your List of 100, by all means go for it)… for now, you can see where this is going.

The Epic Gratitude List is a list of 100 people, situations, experiences and things you’re grateful for right now.

Some are big.  Some are small.  It really doesn’t matter.

What DOES matter is that you get them down, because the goal of this is to create a tangible, physical representation of the abundance you already have.

So what makes The Epic Gratitude List really special?

The length, for one. Sure you may be checking in with gratitude every day… or making a list of 5 or 10 things…

… but how often do you make a list of ONE HUNDRED THINGS you’re grateful for?

Answer: probably not very often.

The point here is to dig deep – go past the usual stuff you give thanks for every day, and really notice the good things all around you. And how many good things you have.

Another point of The Epic Gratitude List is evidence.

Have you ever noticed that when you’re feeling like sh*t, it’s really hard to make the gratitude list?

I mean, here it is supposed to be this high-vibe tool and all… and it is. But when you’re in the thick of it, you may have noticed that gratitude can be really hard to access.

That’s when you pull out The Epic Gratitude List and look at the facts.

The “squishymind” – as my husband puts it – has a really hard time arguing with the facts on the ground. Which means it’s really, really handy to have the right kinds of lists (those with evidence of awesomeness) at your disposal.

So over the next couple of days, when we’re all swimming in the sea of gratitude… I invite you to make an Epic Gratitude List. Not just for now, but for the days where you’re not. (Not swimming in the sea of gratitude, that is.)

And if you really want to go the distance – I invite you to blow past 100 and go all the way to 1000!

One more thing about this practice – and it’s really the only “rule,” per se…

Make your Epic Gratitude List fast.

This is not the time for overthinking. This is the time for gratitude momentum. Plus, it’s always fascinating to see the order in which it comes out. And what we forget. (No judgment, just fascinating and you can always add more later.)

To inspire you, I’ve included my own Epic Gratitude List for this year. I made it in about 40 minutes.

To your health, wealth, joy and LOVE this Thanksgiving. I am grateful for you!
