Before I launch into today’s post about manifestation, I wanted to clarify 3 quick questions about The Busy Girl course:
you do NOT have to be available at 12 noon EST on Mondays. That is only the release time of each module meaning that you can listen to all the material on your own time for as often as you want to any time after 12 noon EST.
EVERYTHING I cover -even the weekly Q&A calls- will be recorded and available to you for as long as you need them. In addition, if you join The Busy Girl now you can join all future rounds of the course again for free (right now over 50% of the women form the first round are signed up again for free! Awesome, right?!)
Payment Plans are available, which means you can pay in 2 smaller installments. Email me at Caroline@carolinezwick.com to find out details.
On to the magical world of manifestation. And it is indeed magical!
Believe it or not, but you are actually manifesting ALL the time
So no, the art of manifestation is NOT reserved for the spiritually tuned-in, barefooted guru from your neighborhood yoga studio ;)
Let me explain:
the principle of manifestation states that you create -make manifest- a theory or an abstract idea through an event, action, or object.
That means that the way you move through your life -physically, emotionally, mentally, energetically- will manifest a certain outcome.
The unfortunate truth is that many of us experience the negative impacts of manifestation way more often than its positive counterparts.
Here is why:
The number 1 problem I hear from the women I work with is that they often feel negative, stuck, and doubtful. They literally visualize negative outcomes because their mind is dominated by fear of failure, rejection, and the belief that unless they are constantly doing/ working/pushing/running everything will fall apart.
And I get it. When I was in a place in my life where I felt out of control, clueless for what I wanted and frustrated about the dating scene, I used to default to the negative too.
So why do we have these negative thoughts?
It’s easier to reject yourself (in your own mind and expectations) first than to feel like the world is rejecting you.
It sounds harsh. But it’s the truth.
Here is the good news:
You can train your mind to quit defaulting to the negative and shift it over to the positive. You can manifest wonderful things in your life, IF you actively begin to believe in the positive.
Now you might be smirking sarcastically and think “Duh Caroline. Easier said than done!”
So let me be straight: this won’t happen overnight. Clearly. If you have had year-long patterns (maybe even family patterns) of fearing and therefore manifesting negative outcomes, it might require a little bit more work. BUT this “work” doesn’t have to be painful.
In The Busy Girl course I go into depth about manifestation and share a bunch of tools with you for how you can begin to utilize the magic behind manifestation (+ an awesome interview with my friend Jeannine Yoder who is known as the Coach’s Coach and is a true manifestation queen).
But in this post I want to share with you at least my basic recipe so you know the ingredients that go into powerful manifestation (plus, I share an example of the manifestation work I have been doing below):
Clarity. You need to be clear on what you desire in your life
Permission. You have to give yourself permission to say what you want freely.
Playfulness. Manifestation isn’t about worrying about the logistics, it’s about imagining and playing with your ideas and dreams.
Emotion. It’s not about brain power, it’s about feeling power. It’s far more important to know how you want to feel than what you want to get.
Creativity. Give birth to your desires visually. Think vision boards or painting (see my example below), because this frees up your soul to speak with its own voice.
Faith. What if all you had to do to live an amazing life was follow the “good feelings” aka. your intuition, so that opportunity can meet you halfway? A revolutionary idea.
Connection. Connecting with your divine feminine power means operating from a place of vulnerability and gentleness. This connection is immensely freeing and paves the road to unveil your own authenticity.
The best part of manifestation is that it is available to you any time anywhere for the rest of your life.
To give you an example, I have been preparing myself -mentally and emotionally- to guide a beautiful group of women through The Busy Girl course that starts next Monday, September 29th.
In order for me to really tune into every participant and make this course super special, I use manifestation to get myself not only focused on my core mission but also to infuse what I am doing with meaning and love.
I imagine myself leading the course with ease, joy, and playful intention.
I imagine the women who are joining the group -brave, curious, hungry for a deep connection with themselves, ALIVE.
I visualize them in their homes around the world having deep AHA moments.
I see them connecting with one another in support and community.
I picture them walking away carrying their bodies with confidence and a lightness in their step that says “I believe in myself. I like who I am.”
I observe them with loving partners and fulfilling careers.
And then (because I love using art as a tool in manifestation), I create an image that conveys what I want to create.
If you want to learn more about the magic of manifestation and be part of my manifestation above, I invite you to join The Busy Girl course.
We are starting next Monday, the 29th, so sign up, get set up, and meet the women on our facebook group (they are all fabulous!).
