Tips: STEP into Manifestation


“You have an amazing ability to manifest,” a psychic tells me many years ago, “you’re an alchemist, so create whatever you want in life.” 

I’m taken aback. 

I don’t know what this means, but am in awe, so nod and smile and say something stupid like, “Oh, of course.” 

I don’t ask any questions. I don’t get any explanations. I don’t have any idea what to do with this information. 

Also, I don’t really know what manifest means (I don’t think it’s an SAT word). I look it up in the dictionary. 

Manifest, verb, means; “To make evident or certain by showing or displaying.” 

Okay, so to make something real. Perfect. This does describe me as I create all of the time. But, making something real through study, hard work and creativity is NOT the same thing as manifestation.

I’ve misinterpreted it, of course. (It’s circa 2000, no internet, no new age wave, pre-The Secret publication, prior any Law of Attraction talk, etc.)

So, YEARS go by. YEARS before I get a clue.  And then that clue is tiny – it’s only an inkling.

It takes more years for me to really gain awareness of what manifestation means and then even more to develop the ability to actually do it.

I don’t want you to have to go through my same wondering path, so here are some helpful tips:

1.    Believe your thoughts create reality. 

This seems obvious these days, but I run into enough people who say YES, but don’t really believe it. When I say believe, I mean expect it – in the absolutely, of course kind of way. Not the – OMG – it actually happened kind of way. If you’re still looking for clues, searching for evidence and surprised when it happens – that’s not really believing. That’s crossing your fingers, closing your eyes and hoping. It’s okay when you first start manifesting, but I’m talking about STEPPING into it. So, breathe. You’ve got this. You can manifest – seriously. It’s a universal law. It’s physics. 

2. Step into your manifestation power. 

People give up when they say their mantras or affirmations and nothing happens. The biggest reason this doesn’t work is the heart isn’t involved.  Your power to manifest requires your heart and mind. Open your mind AND your heart to align your thoughts and your emotions. You know the saying; emotion is energy in motion. Your thoughts gain energy from your feelings. Here are all of the steps: 

-    Clear your mind of doubt and confusion to focus intently on an outcome, goal or desire. 

-    Stir your heart and feelings to charge your intention. 

-    Let go of expectations of how, when and the exact way it’s going to show up in your life to allow the manifestation.

-    Accept it gracefully and gratefully when it shows up in your life. 

-   Repeat.

3. Use the stars.

 You can power up your ability to manifest by using magical tools and the cosmos. The planetary configurations serve to help you create the life of your dreams. Follow the stars and lean into their influence to level up your intentions. The New Moon is the beginners tool as its filled with pure potential, so start with the Bella Luna. 

You can follow her easily with any Moon phase calendar available for free on Apple or Google play. Or for the lunar meaning, keep reading right here. (I LOVE the Moon, so will be writing about her phases for as long as there are readers.)

So, grab your favorite crystals and sit down to meditate during a New Moon and watch the magic happen!
