Manifest This!

If you don’t believe in Hustle.Believe.Receive. (HBR) you’re crazy! I’m sorry, you just are. I have sooooo many examples of how it’s worked for me all over this blog, but I figured it wont hurt to share one more.

I LOVE manifestations, they give me goosebumps and never stop blowing my mind. But I need you to understand one very important thing: 1. When they come into your life you need to be AWARE so you can spot them! Don’t be dumb and wait for the actual picture on your Future Board to show up live in your living room (though it might!)! Be open-minded and aware or you will miss them and think it’s not working, when in reality it’s been working all along; you just weren’t paying attention.

Picture on my Vision Board of Girlfriends

Example? I thought so, Ok here you go…

About a year ago I updated my Future Board. I had several themes represented and one that was new for me was that of “Friendship”. I knew that the last few years I had become rather isolated as a working single mom, and that friendships with girlfriends where hard to find and even harder to keep and maintain.Β  Finding one who really connects with where I’m at in my life right now has been difficult, as most of my close girlfriends live far away. The ones I have close by (200 miles away now) who I also adore have a lot going on in their own lives, and it’s difficult to always keep in touch.Β  I knew that I needed to make it a goal to get out there and socialize and work to make that a priority in my life.

So I put this picture alone with a few others on my Future Board. It’s of girlfriends sitting front row at a fashion show or an event. To me it’s not the “fashion show” I see when I look at this picture it’s the girlfriends doing something FABULOUS together that they love, and doing it up big! Those are the two things I thought about when I looked for a picture to represent the EXPERIENCE I wanted to have with my girlfriends:
1. Doing something amazing and 2. Doing it up in style!

That brings us to today when I get a call from my new girlfriend who I met through mutual friends “randomly” (nothing is random, we know that by now right??) on Facebook a few months ago. We instantly clicked in a way I didn’t even realized I had missed. Just silly and funny and get each other. We are both moms both juggling a lot, both into the same kinds of things. It’s been great to have that. So anyway… today I’m listening to her voice-mail where she says that her and I will be sitting court-side for the upcoming NBA game this weekend in Portland, when the Blazers play the Timberwolves!! I’m freaking out in the car hearing this, because of course I’m a huge fan of both teams and its court-side baby!! I’ve never sat on the court before for an NBA game! It will definitely be another Pinch Me Moment!

Then tonight we are texting, I’m frantically trying to brainstorm on what to wear that wont make me look fat on the court since there is no buffer zone! She is telling me how ridiculous I’m being and I’m cracking up at our banter… then I look up at my Future Board which sits framed above my fireplace, and see this picture.

Holly shit.

“OMG I just had an epiphany!!” I text. I tell her the story and think WOW… this still really does blow my mind! I will be sitting front row with a new girlfriend doing it up VIP style… if that is not HBR working I don’t know what is!!

But do you understand how I could of missed all those dots connecting and otherwise maybe gotten discouraged? If I was only waiting for four girlfriends who looked like the chicks in Sex in the City to sit front row at NYC Fashion Week I might of missed that my “dream/vision” did in fact come true! I wanted girlfriends in my life; I got a new one! I wanted that big over-the-top experience and it showed up…. it’s so easy!

Be aware. Always look for the magic in your life. Look for it every single day. Count every single tiny win. This to me is a huge thing, it’s a dream come true! But it was a lot of little things over the course of a year that lead up to this big “aha moment”… see what I mean? Don’t give up. Give it time and patience and recognize when the little things are falling into place, and be grateful for them and celebrate them. The more you do, the more you will receive.

Happy manifesting!!

Oh and BTW… I got to wear those $3,300 CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Red Bottom shoes too!!! Yep!!

Dream Christian Louboutin’s!

    Dear Ms. Sarah,

    Let me start off by saying your blog is truly an inspiration. For years since “The Law of Attraction/The Secret” first came to the scene (I, too, saw it on Oprah) I have been debating whether it were real or just some made up thing that someone created to fool people into spending money on something completely fake – in other words, I thought it was a complete hoax – a fraud – and yet every time there is a problem in my life or I’m wondering whether I’m going to achieve all the things I truly hope to in life it always brings me back to square one. Law of Attraction. Something brought me to your page. In some way shape or form I feel that it was the simple “law of attraction” that brought me here to remind me that no matter what problems or worries or whatever I have in mind…the doubts…they don’t matter for the simple fact that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!

    Which brings me to my next thought…I decided that I will finally stop procrastinating and take those magazines clippings that I cut out purposely for my vision board and actually put it together. I will stop being embarrassed about broadcasting the hopes, dreams and aspirations I would love to see in my future. I will also keep a blog, myself, of my first experience with the Law of Attraction and I hope that it will change my life for the good as it did yours.

    So, with that being said…thank you. You are truly an inspiration.

    With love,
    Kiara W.

      Wow Kiara! Thank you so much for writing and sharing your story with me! I am telling you what, I looked at it like this… even if I didn’t “buy in” to all the hype about “the secret” (still don’t agree with all of it), what did I have to lose?? I looked at my life and one thing was crystal clear, it HAD been working in the negative way. I could see that for several years I was drawing all this negative stuff into my life, that was easy to spot. So I just decided what the hell? why not see if I could change that around. All the tips I give on this blog under the Law of Attraction tag, is all the stuff I personally did to get the results I do.

      It doesn’t happen over night. But it DOES start to happen, and then it happens really quick. You hit the nail on the head when you said that you would put up a vision board and stop being ashamed to dream. That one step took me almost 3 years. I was never able to do it when i was married, it was only after my divorce that i had the courage. But once i did, and gave myself the permission to dream and then dream big, my life changed so fast! It was crazy! and still is. it still astounds me almost every day. Look through my blog for the tips on vision boards, on how to believe ect, it’s really much simpler then “The secret” or others teach at least in my mind. I like to keep it basic and easy to understand. I’m so happy you found my page! Check out my videos if they are easier to follow too. Let me know how you do I’d love to keep up on your progress!! congrats, today’s the first day to a whole new amazing life for you… just never quit! Keep at it even when your results seem to take a long time. Focus on what your grateful for now, and they what type of experiences you want to have… then watch life open up πŸ™‚
      much love,
      PS Pinterest is AMAZING for creating vision boards and finding awesome pictures for your actual one… AMAZING! I’M ADDICTED!

    Hi Sarah,
    Wow, you’re so awesome! I keep reading your posts to inspire and lift me. How do you let go of negative thoughts when you’re at the bottom? I find it so hard to change my mindset from endlessly worrying being in debt, having payments refused, and realised I’ve been on the SAME salary since I started working! This HAS to be minset- 25 years of the same poor salary. I’m getting to the point of quitting then I realise this is NOT the time to quit, that something will give.
    Thank you sooo much for these posts x

      thanks so much for your comments and sorry for the delay in my response (I just saw this πŸ™ ) the best way i’ve found to stay positive when I’m feeling stressed and worried is to take the advice i give in the post “stop eating cake”… that give you some easy steps to follow to turn your mind around. And remember what you focus on is what your future becomes, so knowing that changes everything!
