My manifestation journey has been one of trust, intuition and conversation.
It can be hard to stay connected to your vision when in the process of moving.
I have had a powerful journey of manifesting what I wanted when I had very little to no money and just a vision in my mind and heart.
I had this nudge to move from New York City to Los Angeles a year and a half ago.
Based on my inner voice telling me that I was going to move here.
At the time it sounded absurd especially because I created a whole life in New York.
I gave up my tiny studio apartment in the Bronx and couch surfed with a friend in Brooklyn for three months.
It was a process to accept that I was at a turning point in my life.
I felt depressed and confused.
I knew that I couldn’t stay in New York much longer. It was becoming so hard to be there from the cold to the busy madness of the city. I was leaving a subculture behind. I was leaving a relationship of two years.
And a relationship of ten years with New York.
When I really decided I would move to Los Angeles it was a process.
I flew out to LA several times. I didn’t find a place to live until about a year after deciding to move.
I didn’t want to just settle for anything. I had a vision in my mind.
I was going to live in a house close to the beach. I would be close enough to get to the mountains for hiking. I wouldn’t pay more than $1500 a month for rent. I didn’t want to buy furniture.
I just wanted to show up and start my life.
Within a year I told anyone I was in conversation with that I was moving to Los Angeles.
And in that year synchronistically I found a place via word of mouth in a conversation in New York City. A friend shared her friends were moving back to NYC and they were living in a house.
And there it was. I flew out shortly after, met my future roommate who now has become a great friend and put my deposit down.
It was a house near the beach. The rent was exactly $1500. It was furnished.
It was everything I envisioned!
And it was seamless to move in.
I didn’t have much money saved. And I just knew I would make it work.
From that day forward my life has completely changed.
I have invested in two years of self-development training from emotional intelligence to yoga teacher training.
It has helped me grow into the woman I want to be and also helped me leave behind so much of my identity that was unhealthy.
Not just that but I have manifested some beautiful surprises.
I am now in a committed partnership with a man I met one month after moving here.
We are going to be having a child soon due in December.
I am entering the next chapter of my life of Motherhood and loving a human that I haven’t even met yet.
I am still finding my footing financially after so much in self-investment. But I remember my vision. To a well-known author and teacher.
Who makes enough to support her family and more. Who makes a social impact in education and food injustice.
I don’t have much money right now.
And that’s okay.
I have my well-being. My health.
My partner. My support system.
And a whole lot of LOVE. More than love than I ever had as a kid.
And the best part is that I get to channel all of that to my kid.
We think we need so much money to manifest what we want in life.
But the truth is you don’t. You need a good head on your shoulders, a vision and good people.
Share what you most want to manifest. Envision it in your mind.
Trust your feelings. Act on them. Some processes take a little time but the rewards come in plenty.
These are the tools I have learned in my manifestation process that will continue to get me to where I want to be:
- Trust the nudge. Your inner gut. The persistent voice in your head to make a move.
- Talk about it. Write about it.
- Envision it and see how it feels in the future. Imagine yourself there. What are you doing? Who is around you? What are you creating?
- Go where your vision is. For me it was moving to LA. So I flew out here many times. I made friends every time. I explored the community. I talked to people. I networked. When I felt a partner coming in my life I meditated. I joined an app and decided to give it a shot. I followed some love experts advice on dating. I did something new that I wouldn’t do in my dating process normally.
- Do what you never do. Don’t go where you feel comfortable. Go where you are uncomfortable.
- Get support. Surround yourself with good people in your life. Who are on the same path. Vision oriented people. Of integrity that you can trust.
The rest will fall into place. It is isn’t a matter of how but WHO.
