Manifesting dreams (the creative process)

As promised last week, today, we are going to delve in the creative process of manifesting. I’ve already mentioned before, I fully believe we are the creators of our reality. And our reality is formed, most importantly, by the beliefs we hold in our minds. When we fully accept something as a belief, we begin to see the evidence of it in our 3D. Life is not happening to us, life is responding to us based on what we think, feel and believe about ourselves and the world around us.

But before we go any further, let me say this:

What I’m about to share with you is what has worked for me in the process of manifesting. If it resonates with you, perfect. Use it. If it doesn’t, but you’d like to learn more about this topic, find a teacher you resonate with it. The reason I’m saying this, is because there are so many people who teach about the Law of Attraction and Manifesting these days, and they all explain the topic in their own way, which can differ from mine. And the truth is, not all of us will resonate with one’s personal perspective and presentation of any topic. Everyone filters their version of any teaching through their consciousness, based on their understanding and their experience. You may resonate with someone’s presentation more and less with others, even when they may be talking about the same thing. Go with what speaks to you the most.

So now that’s out of the way, let’s carry on. 

When you want to create something, you may see it as something in the future and not something that is already here and you can easily tap into. And there is nothing wrong with that. We have all been trained to perceive life, in general, from this three-dimensional perspective, where time plays a huge role and where we think of past, present and future.

But, how about looking at our existence from a wider perspective. How about other timelines and some other-dimensional versions of ourselves? I know this can be a hard concept to grasp, so more on that another time. But for now, I’d like you to imagine a version of yourself that already has what you desire. Can you do that? If so, perfect!

Now, the good news is, when you think about what you want, you’ve subconsciously already tapped into the version of yourself that has what you desire, just by imagining it. This also means that on some level, it already exists. All you need to do now is bring it from your imagination, into this timeline, to this physical reality.

What you need to do next, is raise your vibration high enough to be able to match the frequency of the imagined version of yourself, so the experience of that version can also materialise in your physical reality. How do you raise your vibration? By fully believing that what you want is POSSIBLE FOR YOU. But this is normally the hardest thing for people to do.

Therefore, I believe, the number one thing in the process of manifesting is to increase your self-worth.

Increase your self-worth

You need to believe that you are worthy of what you desire. You need to believe that you are more than good enough to receive what you desire. You need to increase your self-worth to fully believe that you can absolutely receive what you desire. When I started on this journey, I used self-hypnosis, guided meditations and positive affirmations on a daily basis. They not only helped me to increase my self-worth, but also helped me gain more confidence, increase my self-love and self-belief. I’ve done and still doing all this work on myself, because I know I deserve the best. And you deserve the best too.

Visualise what you want to see in your life

Visualisation is a wonderful tool to use when manifesting. Before you begin, have a clear image of the version of yourself that already has what you desire. Once you have it, make yourself comfortable, close your eyes for a few moments and see this image. See this image right in front of you, as clearly as possible. In your mind’s eye, take a step forward and step into this image. Feel what it would feel like being this version of yourself. Experience it by applying all your senses to this vision and feel the feelings of already feeling what it’s going to feel like when it’s all here. Stay with this vision for a few minutes every day. It can help you bring what your desire into your life.

Stay focused, stay persistent

When you are reprogramming your mind and drifting away from the old ways of thinking, there may be challenges along the way. You may find that some days you will be manifesting things easily, other times there may be bumps on the road. One day you may be very focused and you will fully believe that your desire is on the way to you, other times you may think none of this works. Stay focused and persistent with your visualisations, positive affirmations and daily reminders that your desire is on the way to you. Reaffirm what you want, so you can create a favourable outcome for you. Become a conscious creator of your reality.

Dwell in the energy of certainty and trust

Trust and know that you are worthy of what you desire. This is not deluding yourself, but believing you are worthy of it. Trusting and knowing is increasing the confidence in yourself and the universe to create what you truly want, because you are worthy of your desires. Focus on the end result by ignoring your 3D reality (even though nothing may be changing or shifting yet) and dwell in the energy of certainty and trust. Please remember things may already be re-arranging behind the scenes and it may take a while before they become visible in your physical reality. Dwell in the energy of certainty and trust.

BONUS

As a bonus I’d like to share with you one of my guided meditations that is specifically designed for manifesting. The meditation is just over 5 minutes long. Sit back, relax and start creating the life you desire.

 


Looking forward to the future

I feel optimistic. I feel excited about the future and I believe great things are coming. But let me say right at the beginning, this is the way I FEEL. This is my truth and I like to share it on my blog and my social media pages. And my truth can differ from yours, because we are all unique and perceive the world differently. At the same time, I’m not naive. I understand that it may not be easy for everyone, in any shape or form, to look at the world from a more positive perspective right now, given the circumstances and the current state of the world we live in. I go through these phases too (more than you might think), but right now, I’m feeling hopeful and optimistic.

So, here is my truth:

You see, when some breakthrough is about to happen, things often get chaotic, uneasy and may get even worse. But I also feel that when this is occurring, some major shift is about to happen. What is going on in the world right now may seem like some television show full of twists, obstacles and struggles. Let’s not deny that. The times are tough for all of us.

But at the same time,

I feel that the matrix, we’ve been part of for so long, is dissolving as we speak, and some big truths are slowly revealing themselves. More and more people are waking up and no longer believe everything being presented to them as truth or a fact. The matrix full of mis-leaders, mis-guides, charlatans, cheaters and dark forces, of so many kinds, is no longer fooling everybody, and the world and its people are awakening. The good from the bad is getting recognised more easily (and yes, there is so much good in this world as well), because people are realising the truth is being recognised by the way it feels. They are being led by their intuition, rather than by their rational minds only. The dark spell is breaking and losing its strength.

We live in an incredible time right now and I believe, as souls, we’ve chosen to be here at this time and space to be part of this shift, and a major turning point in the existence of humanity. I bet that all the citizens of this entire Universe are patiently watching these events on the Earth right now and wondering what the revelation will be, how it’s all going to work out in the end….we will all see.

In the meantime….

Keep shining your light, people of the Earth. Keep shining your light as bright as you can. We are in this together, so let’s do this for each other, and we are going to get through all of this together. Remember that no darkness can be dissolved by more darkness, only light can dissolve the darkness. Let’s continue to speak our truth. Let’s continue to rise above the obstacles we face as individuals and as a collective. Let’s continue our great work, because we are no longer going to be living in ‘the world of sleepers’. This is what I believe. But if you don’t, now you know why: Because we all have a different perception of this world and what this entire existence means to every single one of us. 

‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’
~ John 1:5 


Do you trust yourself?

For a long time I didn’t trust myself and questioned most of the things I was doing. I was often looking for reassurance, approval and acceptance from others. All of this ‘not-trusting’ myself came from an early age. My childhood was colourful and beautiful, but at the same time, it was filled with constant worry about what others thought of me, how they perceived me and whether I was ‘good enough’. I’m not going to talk about these experiences today, because I’ve shared some of them with you before. However, what I’m going to briefly talk about is how I learnt to trust myself, my decisions and believe in the work I do, with the hope that it will inspire you.

I’d like to say at the beginning, that for me personally, this wasn’t an easy process. I’m still working my way through some blocks and un-learning some old, unhelpful beliefs.

But a huge breakthrough happened for me, in my twenties, during my pilot training. This phase of my life allowed me to learn to trust myself more. I became more confident in decision-making, relying on my own judgements, taking action without second-guessing myself, and all of this brought so much self-belief into my life. I realised that if something was important to me, I can absolutely make it happen.

So, let me share with you a few more things that helped me to trust myself even more. I hope they will inspire you.

I stopped second-guessing myself:

I stopped constantly double-checking with others, if something I’ve done or thought of was okay, good enough, acceptable enough. This was exhausting. I created a new belief that, if I liked what I’ve done, it was absolutely good enough and what others think of it is only their perception, filtered through their consciousness. And this has nothing to do with getting a second opinion or taking advice from someone. There is time and space for that too. It is simply owning your decisions, believing in yourself, in your work and standing fully in your power regardless of other people’s opinions.

I stopped questioning my creativity:

Every project that has ever been created could’ve been better. But if we were always trying to make something ‘even better’ and never complete it, nothing would ever get done and seen the light of the world. I’ve decided to stop questioning my creativity. When I felt something was ready, it was. And this particularly applies to when you are about to release something publicly. Will everyone like it? No. Could you have made it even better? Of course you could. But there also comes a time when you have to draw a line. If you feel it’s ready, it is. When I look at some of my past creations I can see so much room for improvement, there is no doubt about that. But the younger version of myself who created them felt they were done, and done the best way I could possibly create them at the time. If we wait for perfection, nothing will ever get done. Learning to stop questioning my creativity and simply acting on it has been life-transforming.

I stopped seeking people’s approval:

Having expectations of other people, for example, whether they are going to approve of something I’ve done, was painful. Of course it hurts when you put so much time and effort into something and people simply dismiss it or criticise it. However, what hurts even more is constantly seeking someone’s approval. It makes you feel edgy, ensure of yourself, and yes, less trusting of yourself. I had to lose that. I had to learn to fully own what I do, and have no expectations whether someone will approve of it or not. All I had to do is act on my inspiration, trust the process of my own journey, trust my decisions and stop questioning myself.

I hope these examples have inspired you.

Protecting your energy

This week, I would like to address a topic I feel we don’t talk about much, unless you are part of a spiritual or a self-developmental circles, you are taking a meditation classes or training to become a therapist or a healer.

The topic is: Protecting your energy field. 

Just the other day I was speaking to a friend and he was telling me how drained he feels at work, especially around particular work colleagues. Halfway through our conversation, it became very clear to me, that he needs to start protecting his energy field and do this on a regular basis. He is an empath, and empaths can unconsciously, and very easily, pick up other people’s energy, which can leave them feeling tired, even exhausted.

I can fully relate, because I’m an empath too. As an empath and also an introvert, you sometimes perceive the world as an overwhelming experience. You have a rich inner world and worry about so many things other people would not even give a second thought to. Also, you may feel everything on a such deep level, that you take it personally.

But, whether you are an empath, an introvert or not, I believe it’s important to protect your energy field as much as possible.

There are so many techniques you can use to protect your energy. Over the years I’ve learned quite a few from my teachers, and now, I also teach them my students and clients. Many of these techniques are so easy to apply into your daily life and can take only a couple of minutes of your time. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to put in some work.

Today, I’d like to share with you my favourite three.

*An important note*

Before you begin these exercises, make sure you are not driving! 

1) White Light

Make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. As you are getting centred and grounded, visualise that you are standing in front of a beautiful white light. This light is here to protect you and your energy. Visualise, that you are taking a step into this light. As you’ve taken the step, the light is surrounding your entire being now. It is a protective shield of energy where you can feel safe and secure. Trust and know that you are being protected. When you are ready open your eyes.

2) Four mirrors exercise

Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. When you are feeling more centred, visualise, there are four long mirrors placed around you. One is in front of you, one is behind you, one is on your left and one is on your right. These mirrors are not facing you, but they are turned away from you. Trust and know that any negative or heavy energies that reach these mirrors will be reflected away from you, and will also be automatically transformed into a positive energy. You are safe and secure. When you are ready open your eyes.

3) Archangel Michael

Do you believe in angels? Call upon Archangel Michael to protect you with his beautiful blue protective light. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. When you are ready, call upon Archangel Michael. It can go something like this: ‘Archangel Michael, I call upon you now. Please surround me with your beautiful blue protective light. Please, keep me safe and secure at all times. Thank you so much Archangel Michael for your help and your protection. And so it is.’ When you are ready open your eyes. This is a simple prayer we use in the spiritual circles to call upon Archangel Michael when we feel we need protection. I personally ask Archangel Michael for protection every single day.

I hope this post has inspired you.

Looking at life from a soul’s perspective

Lately, I’ve been noticing that more and more people are being quite impatient with each other. They are also being easily triggered by each other, and as a result of that, feeling edgy and uncomfortable. I must admit, I’ve also been getting triggered more than usual lately, and feeling quite edgy and a bit blunt (although feeling so much calmer in the last few days).

And all of this is completely understandable. 

Let me explain how I see it: 

With the constant pressure upon us, with the new rules, with all the changes we are still adjusting to or resisting, certain parts of our personalities, some we didn’t even know existed before, easily come up to the surface.

The more I’m noticing my reactions and responses to some situations, the more I understand there is a lot of work that I need to do on myself, especially ‘inner work’.

I have my own opinions on the current situation. I have my own perspective on the ‘new normal’ and I also get frustrated with it sometimes, especially when I think about it too much.

But, what really matters, I think, is how we truly feel about everything that is going on, on the inside. Because there, lies our wisdom.

When I get still and I listen to my intuition, I always get a higher perspective on things. I look at myself and everything that I’m experiencing, from a soul’s perspective, rather than from a human perspective. With that, ‘in mind’, I feel calmer and more at peace with myself and everything that is happening around me.

In these moments, I keep asking myself more deeper questions, such as:

‘What can I learn from this experience? What is it in me that is making me to judge? What is it in me that is making me to point my finger at others? How can I let go of what is no longer serving me? What more inner work do I need to do to become a better version of myself? How can I be more loving and compassionate towards myself and others?’ 

When I ask myself these sort of questions, I feel more in control, while having the knowing that it is up to me how I want to perceive everything and respond to everything. I am aware, that there is still so much power that lies within me, and there is still so much I can do. I dwell in the knowing, that I have a choice. I get still to access this wise part of my being. Every time I feel edgy, impatient or frustrated, I know I need to go home. I need to go home to my true self, to my soul. 


Taking care of your inner world

Have you ever noticed, that when you finally slow down and get still, many thoughts and emotions start suddenly rising up to the surface? I’m personally noticing it more now, during the global crisis. Having more time on my hands to sit with my feelings, is brining all sort of things up to the surface.

When you slow down and eventually pause, your mind can get very loud before it can get still. Unresolved issues, past resentments, work that you’ve been procrastinating on, it’s suddenly all there, present, screaming for your attention, waiting to be dealt with. This is the time when many people look for distractions, because they are afraid to sit with their feelings and do something about them. This process can sometimes even bring anger and blame with it, and can trigger all sort of emotions within you. But it is the first sign, it’s time to start doing something about this.

I’ve realised, that more and more I sit with my feelings, the more work I need to do on myself. I’m fully aware of all the unresolved issues that need to be addressed, healed, transformed and finally released.

Before you read any further, please know that the content I share is designed to inspire, empower and motivate people. I share my experiences and what works for me, my students and clients. Different tools, techniques and approaches work for different people. My philosophy is this: Take only what resonates with you and leave the rest out. There are so many resources, teachers, coaches and professionals who offer great tools, which may work better for you. I encourage you to do your research and then choose.

So, let’s go back to the article. Listed below are a few suggestions my clients and I are finding helpful.

Accepting your feelings

When we begin sitting with our feelings, at first, there may be chaos. So much may be going on. But, I find that honouring and accepting what is currently going on, without rejecting it, is a great way to begin. Whatever is happening in your mind, and whatever feelings you are having as a result of that, is currently part of you. As these feelings are part of you, you need to accept them, not fight them. If you fight, you are fighting part of yourself. Honour your unique journey and accept your feelings.

Being present with your feelings

After you you make peace with your feelings and accept them, be present with them. Sit with them for a while. Don’t judge, don’t react, do reject, don’t search for distractions. Just be with your feelings. Let the waters settle naturally. And if it helps at this stage, you can also get a pen and paper and write your feelings down. Just be present with your feelings without any judgment, but with compassion.

Working with your feelings

There is a big difference between working with your feelings and temporarily numbing them down by substances, junk food or other distractions. When you take care of your inner self, the outsides often take care of themselves too. Working with your feelings is not a job that will take an hour or one day. This is a life-long work. It’s learning you undertake to understand yourself. Working with your feelings is noticing how you react to certain situations, how you respond to people, noticing how you feel when they respond back to you. Working with your feelings is observing rather than reacting. I find, that the more you become an observer what is going on around you, within you, how you react, how you respond and what choices you make, the more you begin to understand yourself and your feelings. And in the future you won’t be so afraid to sit with them. You will gain a better understanding of yourself, what works for you and what doesn’t. It’s all about getting to know yourself on a deeper level.

I hope these suggestions have inspired you.

Stay safe and keep well.

What is this teaching us?

For many, the start of the year hasn’t been so easy. So many sad things have been happening in the world. We’ve lost some beautiful people, there have been disasters, tragedies and more. Even in my own life, I’ve received some unexpected sad news and have been through challenges, which I’m going to keep private for now.

I wish we could just rewind these last few weeks and start all over again, and perhaps make a better start.
But, looking at all these examples, I also believe, it’s important to ask ourselves: ‘What can we learn from these sad and challenging experiences…and, actually…is there anything to learn from them?’ 
Well, all of them are definitely teaching us something….
They are perhaps teaching us to be stronger, more resilient and to finally start living our lives fully, instead of only existing. They may be teaching us to be more grateful, loving and compassionate towards others, and of course, towards ourselves too. Perhaps, they are teaching us to start enjoying our lives a bit more and stop investing our precious energy to things that don’t really matter. They are maybe trying to tell us, to be more ourselves and stop trying too hard to play the pretentious game of being somebody we are not to impress those who don’t really care anyway. They are maybe teaching us to be more forthcoming, more honest and tell our loved ones, as often as we possibly can, how much we love them and appreciate them before it’s too late. Or maybe, they are just telling us to be less fearful and more courageous, to finally step out of our comfort zone and start doing what we truly desire.
So, if this year began with some challenges for you, please keep the faith that things will get better. Trust and know in your heart, that after every storm the clouds will disappear and the sun will shine again.

Let’s be more kind & respectful towards each other

We all have our own beliefs and follow certain traditions which work for us. These beliefs shape the reality we live in. For some time I’ve been following certain spiritual traditions. I’ve always been interested in the mysterious and have been curious about the Universe as whole. I’m extremely grateful that I have been lead to many amazing teachers who supported my growth, by sharing their knowledge and wisdom with me, which also allowed me to tap into my own.

As a result of this, I created a reality that works for me and I’m happy to be living in that reality. There are people who may not believe in what I believe and that’s okay with me. Really, it’s perfectly fine with me 🙂 We are all entitled to believe in what resonates with us. I personally don’t reject anyone’s beliefs and opinions, but what sometimes saddens me is when people attack others based on theirs, without knowing anything about it, saying they are right and you are wrong. This personally affected me during Samhain (Halloween), when some people said hurtful things to me and others, without knowing much about this particular time of the year. Sadly, they haven’t done any research to understand it even a little bit.

We all perceive the world through many different filters. We have been conditioned to believe certain things from an early age, often without choice. We pick up beliefs from the people closest to us, when we are growing up and later through our adulthood, and these beliefs become part of our reality. So, of course if we believe something for so many years we are going to believe it fully, unless we become more open-minded to other perspectives and start choosing for ourselves later in life.

Why am I saying all this? My point is, to be more kind and respectful towards each other when it comes to these beliefs. Let’s stop attacking each others, making unpleasant and completely unnecessary comments about someone else’s beliefs and the traditions they follow. If we don’t like someone or what they believe in, we don’t have to be friends with them in real life or we can always unfollow them on social media. We can always end the friendships in a mature way, without any attack or hard feelings.

So, I believe in many spiritual traditions, angels, spirit guides, ghosts and fairies. I love wearing costumes that symbolise my beliefs or just purely for fun. I’m friends with many amazing, real witches, shamans and healers, who are one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. These people and guides have done some amazing work for myself, my friends and family. I honour their path and I’m grateful for the incredible work they do in this world.

And, I fully stand behind all of this and feel unapologetic about it.

So, dear friend, on a different path from mine or someone else’s, I respect your beliefs and your opinions. You are entitled to believe what you want to believe and express your opinions. But, if you feel called to express them, please be mindful and do so in a respectful way. People will honour you and appreciate you for it. After all, we are all having a human experience and have more in common then not, despite our differences. We are just on a different paths at this time and space.

How I turned being bullied at school to my advantage as an adult

A week ago, I sat in the garden with my parents. We talked about many things. The topic of childhood came up. My parents and I discussed the good and the not-so-good memories we had. Mentioning one particular experience made me very emotional. I visited that old memory to such an extent I burst into tears. I haven’t cried in front of my mum and dad for years. I wasn’t embarrassed, on the contrary, I felt relieved and comforted while surrounded by loved ones.

All through my childhood and teenage years I’ve been bullied, made fun of, laugh at or called names. I am not mentioning this to complain about it; I am writing about it because I want to help you turn your own struggles to your advantage. It is not my intention to go into much detail, but let’s say, there were some kids in the village I grew up who would pick on me on a daily basis. Why me? I wasn’t sure exactly. I was very quiet and shy, and some kids, like the bullies I was surrounded by, are always ready to attack the ones who don’t know how to stand up for themselves. The days of my childhood and teenage years were some of the darkest days of my life. Now, I have a different outlook on it all. They made me stronger as an adult.

What did I gain from this experience?

  • I learnt to stand up for myself
  • I learnt to speak up for myself (but still have much to learn in this category) 
  • I learnt to be proud of who I am
  • I learnt to put my needs first
  • I worked on myself very hard and I can confidently say I’m doing well in life
  • I achieved many incredible things 
  • I learnt to be a strong and independent woman 

If you had been bullied as a child or going through a similar experience right now, I can fully relate. Please know, that you have so much power and so much wisdom within you to rise above any challenge you face. First of all, don’t keep it to yourself. Talk to someone about it. There are so many loving and caring people and organisations who would be able to help. When I was bullied, at first, I was afraid to tell my parents. Later, it got so far, I had to. Their support helped me enormously. Don’t wait and also know this: Bullies, whether you encounter them at school, on social media or at work, are insecure individuals who need to pick on others to be seen as powerful. The truth is, there are the weak ones. They are unconsciously showing their weakness by making fun of someone else. They are the ones who are searching for love, support and attention and feel lost. 

A thought to keep

‘When you re-visit the painful experiences of your past, the pain may still be present and you may feel emotional. This is only natural. When you rise above them and choose to view them from a higher perspective, a tremendous healing can take place. Suddenly you are not the victim anymore; you are the survivor, the one who won.’ ~Jana Prackova


Letting go of toxic people the mature way

We all have some people in our lives who drain us of energy. The friends that always complain, the people that have nothing positive to say. For years and years, they have similar stories about how victimised they feel and how difficult life is. When you get off the phone with them, you feel exhausted. You feel that so much energy has just been sucked out of you. Do you keep in touch with certain people just to be nice? Well, all of the above are huge signals it’s time to let go. But letting go doesn’t always mean to say goodbye for good. It can mean to keep some form of contact. I know you care about your friends and you don’t want to hurt anyone. You want the best for your friends, but sometimes letting go would be the best choice. The truth is, we sometimes outgrow some people and that’s perfectly okay. So is it time to re-evaluate your relationships? If so, read on.

No Guilt

Let’s face it, some people need to go. They came into your life for a few years, but the relationship/friendship has served its purpose now. I am not suggesting to be cruel. You can still let those people go with grace and love and without feeling guilty. This is an act of self-love towards yourself. Self-love should be your number one priority. Secondly, you don’t have to close the doors completely. What you can you do is to minimise contact with these people. Just check-in with them occasionally. I know you still care about them because you are a good and loving friend, but for your own wellbeing, you need to keep distance and protect your energy.

You are always Number ONE

I learnt this the hard way being a recovering people-pleaser. I sometimes still de-tour and find myself on this path, but luckily I soon realise, this is not doing me or the other person any favour. Taking care of yourself and your energy by letting go of the unhealthy and draining relationships is crucial to your wellbeing. You want to feel well and good and you owe it to yourself. Your time here on Earth is limited. Whey waste it by investing your precious energy into something that doesn’t make you feel good.

Be honest

Do yourself a favour and don’t try to hold on to relationships that no longer serve you. Let them go, be kind and truthful to yourself and others. We often hold on to something for too long. It is not good for yourself or the other person. Let them go, so they can be who they came here to be and find the right people to spend time with. The same applies to you. Don’t waste yours or their time.

Forgive them for YOU

We are all on a different stage of this journey called life. You are on your path and they are on theirs. Some people stay in your life for a lifetime, others have shorter roles to play. Forgive them, let them go and move on. Make a space for the healthy and more fulfilling friendships and relationships.

A thought to keep

“When you are brave enough to let go of what is no longer serving you, your energy will start re-arranging and will create space for what is really meant for you.” ~Jana Prackova
