The Magic of Manifesting

by Carrie Bailey

I grew up with a strong interest in Spirituality and you could often find me in the Self-Help and Spirituality section at a bookstore. When “The Secret” came out in 2006 I was instantly hooked. After learning the incredible transformations that took place from following a few certain steps, my life became forever changed. I began to journal a lot more about my goals and dreams than the usual teenage gossip or heartbreak that I was going through. In November 2009 I was watching an Oprah episode which was based around the Law of Attraction. One of her guests described how she manifested her husband and the resemblances were astonishing. I was inspired and went straight to work on designing my “Dream Man”. I began to describe him first by appearance, in precise detail like the woman did on T.V. “Actor, Blonde wavy hair, green eyes, sexy voice, rides a motorcycle and owns a boat” were just a few surface layer attributes that I chose amongst many others of both physical and non-physical nature.

A few years later in 2012 I was at a place called The Blarney Stone in the Gastown area of Vancouver, BC with my girlfriend. She bumped into a guy she was newly seeing and he was with a friend who’s voice sounded eerily familiar the second he introduced himself to me. As the evening went on, this mysterious man invited us back to his place on Water Street just a few blocks away and the pieces started to come together for me. When we got to his beautiful two story penthouse overlooking the North Shore mountains and ocean, he showed us a clip from a movie him and this friend starred in; he was an Actor!

I was overwhelmed with excitement and as much as I was enjoying my time getting to know this intriguing man, I couldn’t wait to get home to review the note I wrote myself years prior. The evening was coming to an end so we all planned to meet up again that following weekend to spend a day out on his boat. I remember us kissing goodnight at the door as we were leaving and it just felt different. It felt more like electricity than butterflies and as soon as I got into the elevator I gushed to my girlfriend how I knew this was the man that I wrote about on my list. When I got home that night I was blown away by all the similarities; Actor, Blonde wavy hair, owned a boat and he had the sexiest voice I had ever heard in my life! I developed the biggest girl crush from discovering this information and was convinced we were destined to be together. We started hanging out every once in a while but at the time ‘liquid courage’ was needed when I’d be around anyone from the opposite sex that I was attracted to, so booze was always involved and this was most always the case with Andrew. He also seemed to be quite the party boy so our encounters became more of an occasional hookup and overtime this ‘crush’ eventually faded and we went our separate ways.

I struggled with alcohol for years after and became quite the party girl myself. As I drifted through life trying to make ends meet, I was working in the cosmetic industry as a Jr Account Executive and felt completely lost and just totally empty inside. I always had this nagging feeling that I wasn’t living out my life’s purpose. Then I remembered a psychic from when I was 16 and another one in 2012 both saying I would own my own business one day. The one in 2012 specifically said she saw it being in Gastown. I liked the sounds of it so I decided to write a list of my “Dream Business”. I didn’t know exactly at the time what it would entail but I knew I wanted it to be in the metaphysical realm since these interests came naturally to me. I felt it was a great start but I was still struggling as I didn’t make any solid moves in that direction. As I became further detached from life as I continued my drinking problem, I quickly found myself spiraling downwards. On August 7th 2015 I woke up hearing a voice telling me “Its all over”. The night before I had far too many drinks and I’d had enough. I remember the feeling of wanting to take my own life and praying to God to save me from this state of despair I was currently in. I couldn’t live my life this way any longer. That morning I felt a higher power speaking to me, more like through me. I was filled with this overwhelming reassurance that I would never pick up another drink again. This wasn’t the first time I had tried to give up alcohol though, 10 months prior I was seeing an energy healer that helped me see things more clearly.

The veil was lifted and I was eager to get back to that safe place I was briefly once at. Building upon this newfound intuition I was drawn to enroll in the Reiki level 1 healing course. I knew this time I had to heal myself. As my sobriety turned from days, to weeks to months, I was breaking down major barriers that I couldn’t have done before I acquired all of this incredible newfound knowledge and strength. I finally found my life’s purpose! Finally with this new revelation, every ounce of me felt complete. I started adding to my business plan that I had originally made and held strong faith that I will one day open this healing centre. This centre would be focused around helping people, using the skills I had acquired, I would tie in Energy healing and Health and Wellness.

I finally had no doubt in my mind what my purpose was now. I was meant to help others overcome their struggles and addictions, just like I had done so myself. This past January 1st 2017 I decided to go back to the drawing board and rewrite in detail of what I wanted to manifest one last time. I sealed it into an envelope and dated it for that following January 1st 2018. At the top of the list included manifesting a husband as well as my dream business and this time I incorporated visualization as I wrote all my wishes down. A few days later on January 3rd, I was reacquainted with the man I had originally manifested back in 2012, “The Green eyed, blonde wavy hair Actor”; Andrew Francis.

With now being a year and a half sober, living my true authentic self. I finally had the confidence to be around this man I once felt intimidated by. I found myself falling in love faster than I had thought and everything moved quite quickly for us. We were living together before we even made it official! For the months leading up to the summer he was preparing himself physically and mentally for his leave to the island, where he would go to film the second season of a Television series he had a lead role on called Chesapeake Shores. By this point I worked my way up to an Account Executive for the number one cosmetic line on the market. As the days went on I felt progressively worse, like I was really losing myself. Being around Andrew, who had this intense passion and excitement for his career, gave me this empty feeling inside and I knew I needed to start living my true self. Only downfall was, where do I begin? It felt completely out of reach and I became overwhelmed with the feeling that I may never get there.

I started praying to my angels and God to help align me with my dream business, I couldn’t stand working in this industry anymore. I gave it all up to the Universe and completely let all my worries go. I finally had full faith in the Universe for delivering my desires and that it would one day happen in divine timing. The wheels started turning faster than I anticipated and only a few days later Andrew received an email from his landlord stating his old place on Water street that he was subletting was becoming available again. The only issue was that the building was turning into more of a business complex which meant he would have to either give the place up or open a business. He then paused for a brief moment upon finishing the email and all of a sudden as if a light bulb went on above him says, “Why don’t we start your business?” I remember the feeling of complete shock by how quickly this intention manifested but I didn’t want to get too excited as I thought maybe he was a bit out of his mind, so I gave it about a week to find out if he was in fact serious. And he was. I not only manifested my dream man but now my dream business was unraveling in ways I could have never imagined!

ZENDEN opened its doors on November 18th, 2017 in the heart of Gastown, British Columbia. We offer everything from daily meditation, yoga, sound healing to events, workshops and monthly full moon ceremonies. We will also be offering private energy healing sessions and a place for the sober community to enjoy on a weekend night out that doesn’t involve booze and the occasional wild crowd it can often come with. With Vancouver once being named the “Unhappiest City in Canada” and most find it difficult to make friends, our intention for ZENDEN is to not only be a studio that offers classes for the conscious community but also to act as a platform for those who may be experiencing hardships and are struggling to overcome them. With that being said, Creating a community throughout Vancouver of love, togetherness and acceptance. We want to provide the knowledge we’ve acquired with others, so they too can experience a life of their dreams!

New book to help you tap into your intuition and manifest your dreams

Watkins Publishing announces the January 19, 2016 launch of the debut book from Mariana M. Cooper, The Aha! Factor: How to Use Your Intuition to Get What You Desire and Deserve. It is a practical and complete guide to learning the language of answered prayer in a two-way conversation with the Infinite.

Have you ever had a moment of inspiration or an epiphany (an Aha!)? Can you actually learn a system that would allow you to deliberately access those moments? What if you could rely on them to provide accurate guidance and accelerate your ability to get what you most desire?

She writes, “How many times have you heard that we don’t come with owner’s manuals and we have to learn as we go? Well, I am here to give you a manual on how to recognize and strengthen your intuition to be your most reliable tool for not only receiving clear inspiration, but also for getting support in attracting the right people and resources to support you.” This is our Aha! Factor.

She believes that when we access and ignite our Aha! Factor, dreams, goals, and desires can be accomplished in record time. The book reveals how to tap into your intuition to manifest the dreams and desires you have been putting off out of fear, doubt, or previous failure. And it’s all a matter of communication. “Why would God create 300 ways of asking without creating a system of getting an answer? The answers are coming all the time.”

[ad name=”Rectangular AdSense”]

In this eye-opening book Mariana shares:

• How to access your Aha! Factor to receive and interpret the answers to your prayers and intentions
• What an Aha! Moment actually is and how to have more of them throughout your day to help you to make decisions that you can believe in
• The list of 101 Signs, Symbols and Synchronicities that show when a message is coming to you and what it means
• How to easily incorporate your Aha! Factor into all aspects of your life –money, love, relationships, health/fitness, work, toxic situations, and bringing your biggest dreams and goals to fruition much more quickly than you could ever do with logic alone.

For anyone who has ever felt held back from their dreams, The Aha! Factor is the answer to tapping into the eternal, omniscient power within, taking control of your goals, and attaining the life that you desire and deserve.

Magical Thinking And Manifesting Your Soulplan

By Judy Hall

“If a butterfly flapping its wings in the Amazon causes a hurricane in the Caribbean then surely a group of writers flapping their arms in the New Forest could shift the jetstream. Let’s do it, ” I said. Six Village Writers enthusiastically flapped their elbows while four others looked on in quizzical amusement.

We had been discussing the abnormally cold and wet early ‘summer’ we were experiencing which, apparently, was due to the jet stream being ‘stuck in the wrong place’. I made my suggestion somewhat flippantly. But, two days later the sun came out: the jet stream had shifted.

When I recounted this to a friend she said witheringly: ‘Surely you don’t think you had anything to do with that do you?’ Well, actually, yes, we just might have. I’ve seen such things happen too often for it to be mere coincidence. I believe the intention gets taken up by the universe and reflected back to manifest in the world. That’s the power of magical thinking.

Psychologists are scathing about magical thinking – which in their lexicon is defined as believing you have influenced what happens in the world around you when actually it’s just a completely random coincidence. But magical thinking is the basis of the Law of Attraction and the Power of Now. Manifesting is the result of thoughts and feelings projected out to the world. And the more conscious the intention, the more directed the thought, the more positive the result. As the Buddha said:

As irrigators lead water where they want, as archers make their arrows straight, as carpenters carve wood, the wise shape their minds.
– The Buddha

True creation starts in the heart rather than the head. Manifesting is not something you do, it is what you are: an outward expression of your inner being. It makes visible your background thoughts and feelings and expresses your core self. We all manifest every second of every day. With each thought, emotion and belief that passes through us, we create our reality whether we intend to or not. When Socrates said that the unexamined life was not worth living he stated a profound truth. If we do not examine our inner life, those thoughts, feelings, mental filters and beliefs, how can we possibly recognise their influence our outer life? I’m also aware that ‘asking the universe’ gives away your own power to create. It puts the power to direct your life firmly in the hands of another – whether that other is named God, the universe, or whatever. Take back that power – I use Malachite to support this process – and you become a conscious co-creator of your world.

Your thoughts and wishes are instructions that are picked up, magnified and returned to you: dispassionately but accurately and in abundance. Some people seem to believe that it is the universe’s task to give them what they want, to respond to petitions for ‘more money’, ‘more love’, ‘a better life’. They look to something ‘out there’ to create on their behalf because they have a feeling of impotent lack. Those who make demands of the universe in this way are living their lives backwards. They think that if they have more of what they so desperately desire, they will be happier. But what they manifest is more of the same: lack. Joy and a sense of empowerment radiating out would attract to them an abundant life. Magical thinking creates a self-fulfilling prophecy, a benevolent gifting circle.

If there are contradictions within you, if the part that is unconscious is putting out one message while your conscious mind is putting out another, or if two unconscious parts are in conflict, confusion and negative manifestation results. This is not only true of thoughts and feelings. Perhaps the deepest question of all is can we successfully manifest something that goes against our soulplan? Soulplans are something that interest me greatly. As a karmic astrologer I have examined thousands of soulplans over the last forty years or so and I explored them in depth for The Book of Why. We not only have a plan for the current life, laid down before we reincarnated and mapped in the birthchart, but we may well be running out-dated soulplans from other lives too. These can trip us up if they cancel out our current plan. I use astrology and a variety of crystals to understand these plans but you can find yours by holding your favourite crystal, contemplating your life so far and asking for guidance (see the soulplan meditation). Or, you can follow the longer meditation in Judy Hall’s Life Changing Crystals, and then apply magical thinking to create the life you were born to live.

Soulplan Meditation
Hold your favourite crystal, gaze at it and ask your soul to show you the purpose of your present incarnation, the soul mission you are on and how you may best carry this out. Close your eyes and breathe gently while you wait for an answer. Note any thoughts or feelings that pop into your mind. Ask your soul if this purpose is still relevant or have things moved on so quickly that you need to make a new plan?

Ask your soul to indicate any negative, past-its-sell-by-date soul contract or outdated purpose that may be interfering with your soulplan. If you find one, explain to the part of yourself that is carrying that outdated purpose or contract that it no longer applies, that you have moved on and it is time to dissolve it and let it go so that your current soul purpose can be fulfilled. When you have finished, disconnect from the crystal and thank it for its assistance.

She manifested the man of her dreams

‘How I Met the Man of My Dreams’ Focuses on a Woman’s Self-Acceptance

New-Age Love Veteran Says Finding Mr. Right is All About Attitude

Finding Mr. Right may seem as unlikely to some women as winning the lottery, but Debbianne DeRose’s new book, “How I Met the Man of My Dreams: a Guide to MANifesting Yours,” is a new-age-y and practical guide to having it all.

“Whether you’re new to the Woo – metaphysical or beyond ego-brain perception – or a veteran looking for a breakthrough, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more practical, fresh (or fresh-mouthed) look at the MANifestation process,” DeRose says. “So much more than just the metaphysical mechanics of rustlin’ up a mate, it’s about who you become in the undertaking.”

Years of single-womanhood can leave a gal wondering if she’ll ever find a bona fide SuperLove, says DeRose, who also came to doubt that finding Mr. Right was possible.

Negative feelings and thoughts are all that stand between a woman and the man of her dreams, she says. He’s there. Be sure you’re ready to recognize him by focusing on self-love, acceptance, appreciation and amusement.

“That’s where the MANifesting gets really interesting: believing is not a requirement,” she says. “When my Dreamboat sailed into the harbor, I was so inspired that I decided to ‘reverse-engineer’ the Law of Attraction for the single sisterhood, with humor and tough love.”

DeRose is the author of other New Age books that focus on self-acceptance and self-empowerment. Fans love both her message and her style.

“Debbianne has a delightful sense of humor and is quite gifted in the art of descriptive prose,’’ writes K.S., an Amazon reviewer.

S.C. writes, “I love her chutzpah and independent, clear-thinking mind.”

This guide to finding Mr. Right includes DeRose’s true-love story, told in part to prime the imagination of her readers, she says.

“Those ladies who read the book and actually give the advice a chance should prepare to laugh, take an honest look within and, best of all, be ready to be taken off the market!”

About Debbianne DeRose

Debbianne DeRose specializes in honest, humorous explorations of all things “woo-woo” – that is, metaphysical, mystical, spiritual, paranormal or New Age-y. She’s the author of a hilarious memoir, “What I Did On My Midlife Crisis Vacation.” Formally trained in the conservative arts of engineering and economics, she has worked as an “enginerd,” database geek, non-profiteer, college instructor, bricolage artist and house flipper before diving headlong into the world of woo-woo wordsmithery. DeRose resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with the man of her dreams.
