We are ALWAYS manifesting, even if we aren't meaning to. The key to living the life you have on your Vision Board is INTENTIONAL manifesting. This small shift has huge impact.
The first step to manifesting your dreams is letting the Universe know what you want, so if you haven't already, get to making that Vision Board! The Real Vision Board Magazine makes it super easy to get creating! If you have, awesome! Let’s talk action
You’ve taken some time to visualize what you want from life. You’ve got some big dreams, and you are raring to make them happen! Maybe you’ve been trying to take action, but it hasn’t been working out. Or you’ve come to the conclusion you shouldn’t take action because the Universe will simply manifest things for you. I get it. It can be confusing. One guru says just dream and watch it happen. Another says you need to set specific goals and take action every day even if you don’t feel like it! So what's the answer? Simple...a little of both. Trusting the Universe to deliver all you want is CRUCIAL, but taking action is too! The part most people get tripped up on is the KIND of action.
From a manifesting standpoint, action needs to be soul inspired. It comes from a place of truly knowing what you want, taking the time to get in tune with your own intuition or God, and acting from that place of connectedness. Often you set a goal and then fumble around trying to make it happen. You take actions you THINK you should take. Maybe you watch what others have done, or you find a guide online that breaks it down. This can work, but a lot of the time it produces poor results or you get burned out and lose motivation.
The difference with taking action from a place of connection is that your higher self knows EXACTLY what you need to do to get you where you want to be. It knows how to create amazing “coincidences.” You meet the right person at just the right time. You hear about a class being offered that teaches exactly what you need to know for your next step. When you have a dream you want to manifest, you are a part of the process. However, instead of pushing and trying to force things to happen, you trust the Universe with all the sticky upcoming details and simply take one step at a time.
How do you know if an action you want to take is from a place of alignment?
Easy! How do you feel? Does that action feel like you are a buzzing ball of energy? Or does it feel like you’d rather chew a piece of chalk? Your emotions are your alignment barometer. If you must force yourself toward your goal, I hate to break it to you but you might not actually want that goal. And that's ok! You are allowed to want whatever you want! But taking action toward your goals should feel exciting. Maybe not every single piece of it has your hair standing on end but if your goal is something you really want, even the boring stuff won’t feel forced.
To begin actively manifesting, spend some time thinking about your dreams and goals. A great way to do that is to create a vision board! Get excited about them and ask your higher self to guide you to the first small step toward that goal. That's it. All you need is ONE STEP. Your higher self will guide you if you ask. You don’t need a huge road map of how to get there, you just need one INTENTIONAL, ALIGNED first step. Do that everyday, and before you know it the Universe has shifted impossible obstacles, and your dreams are now your reality.
