Top 5 inner and outer beauty rituals to use under the Gemini Full Moon

Well, today brings the Full Moon and boy is it making its presence known.

The Full Moon is a time of release and letting go. A time when your emotions will rise to the surface. Opening your eyes to what you need to deal with in order to stay aligned with becoming your true self and making your vision a reality.

However, at the time of a Full Moon, the energy can be intense, emotional, highly charged and overwhelming for moon sensitives. Something that can often lead us to react in haste and create resistance or drama. Yet, the easiest way to work with this energy is to make peace with your past and honor yourself. So, let’s explore my top 5 inner and outer beauty rituals that support you in doing that, whilst being the best version of yourself.

Step out of the darkness & into your light (10)

INNER BEAUTY

Forgiveness

Cleanse and detoxify from any emotions that vibrate lower down the energy scale by practicing forgiveness towards yourself and others. Reflect on who has ruffled your feathers over the last 4 weeks, as well as those associated with emotions that are currently rising to the surface.

For a specific person imagine the person is sat in front of you. You are both surrounded by a sphere of white. As you look that person in the eye repeat: “I forgive you. I release you. I let this and you go with love, with love and with grace. You go your way and I’ll mine. It is done. It is done. It is done.”

To enhance your ability to connect with the energy of forgiveness recite these words whilst listening to your favourite meditation music or binaural beats.

Gratitude

When people release they often forget to fill the space they’ve opened up with energy that feels good and aligns you with your desires. Then they tend to fill the space with the same crap from before. Therefore it’s wise to lay the foundations of what you want to experience through a daily practice of gratitude.

Each morning before your feet hit the ground say ‘thank you‘ and find 10 things to be grateful for. Say your gratitude list in your mind or write it down in a journal. Writing is a powerful way to impress your desires upon your mind and it really enhances the feeling if you give a reason why you are grateful too. Try these: “I am grateful to have _______ because ________.” “I am so happy and grateful for ___________ because ________.”

Let Go

Honour all that is coming up for you at this time and give yourself permission to let it all go. When you release what isn’t serving you, you will make room for something or someone better to take its place. Most importantly, you open the space for releasing the lower vibrational energy attached to that emotion, of which is contributing to making your current reality what it is. Perform this Letting Go ritual from my free ebook ‘She Let Go’.


OUTER BEAUTY

Be Seen

The moon shines brightest when she is full and so should you!

Gemini energy resonates with the throat chakra: communication, your voice, how you listen, speaking your truth…… The colour for this chakra is blue and incorporating more of this colour into your life can facilitate in strengthening it. Colours carry their own vibration which we can tap into. An easy way to do this is through our style, make-up and nails. Cleopatra style with a bold blue eyeshadow or embrace the winter nails look with blue polish.

Energy cleanse: Ritual Baths

Your skin is the largest organ of your body for detoxification. One way that you can aid your skin in releasing toxins from your body is by enjoying the ritual of a cleansing salt bath. It is also a beautiful way to blend together both the body and the spirit/your inner and outer beauty.

For centuries both Himalayan and Epsom salts have been known for containing minerals that help to remove toxins from the body, improving your health, skin conditions, relieving stress and clearing your energy field. Set the mood by lighting a candle and having your favourite crystals close by, before adding 2-3 handfuls of your chosen salt into your bath an soak for 20 minutes or so. As you relax in your bath set the intention to let go of all energy that is no longer serving you and welcomes in energy that supports your Highest good.


This Full Moon has the potential to really support you in preparing for 2019, so it’s well worth working with the energy to get aligned. So, enjoy working with the energy!

With love xo

Monthly reading: Angel Messages for November

Welcome to the first of my readings for the month ahead.

HOW DO I WORK?

I connect with my spiritual guidance team and the Angels to bring through any messages that are wanting to be shared at this time. I use the cards as a tool to offer more insight and guidance that can support you, as well as confirm what I’m feeling, seeing and hearing on a psychic level. Therefore, the interpretations of the cards may differ from what appears in the guidebook.


THE CARDS

The deck I’m using is Angel Prayers by Kyle Gray.

Open your heart – AA Chamuel

Thank you Chamuel for removing the barriers around my heart.

Crystals: Rose Quartz + Green Aventurine

Spiritual Abundance

Thank you Angels for blessing me with infinite abundance.

Spiritual Gifts – AA Raziel

Thank you Raziel for helping me channel my gifts and talents.

Crystals: Lapis Lazulli + Amethyst


SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE FOR NOVEMBER

Firstly, the appearance of 2 Archangels suggests that there is a lot of Angelic support to be found this month, including support from your loved ones in Heaven.

At this time in history and this time of year the veil is getting thinner. More of us are opening up to spirituality than ever before, be it through mindfulness, meditation, reiki, crystals or indeed awakening our own spiritual gifts. This is raising the energy levels and making it easier for spirit, including guides, Angels and loved ones to be seen, felt and heard.

With this in mind, there comes that sense of being more open to connecting with spirit for support and asking for their guidance.

Archangel Chamuel is the angel of love and relationships. Resonating strongly with the heart chakra I get the sense that he is providing support that enables you to let go of any guilt, anger, bitterness, resentment, jealousy and other lower vibrational emotions. Why? Because it’s often this emotions that stand in the way of us experiencing healing, abundance, love, joy and all of the other things we desire.

So, don’t be surprised if you are triggered a little more often than you like, especially by those out to deceive, bitch, bully or just generally be negative. These triggers are showing you what you yourself need to work on or release.

Abundance comes in many forms and this card brings forth the energy of focusing upon your blessings way more than on the negatives.

I know that this can be a challenge, especially when your current reality is looking much less than you would desire. However, it is through gratitude and love that you raise your own vibration. So, where you can, pivot towards joy, love or whatever else feels good.

Being next to the Open Your Heart card I feel that this card is reminding you that when you release lower vibrational energy you need to replace it with what you do want to experience. This completes the Letting go and receiving cycle. It also supports you in refocusing your mind on what you do want to experience and facilitates the energy of creation.

This card also is a good omen for finances. I’m given the sense of windfalls, raise or promotion. With the latter I hear: If you don’t ask you won’t get. So, if you have been thinking about asking for a raise, going for a promotion or expanding your career in a new direction now is a good time to get it all moving. With the spiritual support mentioned earlier it’s clear you will be guided.

I’m also getting the sense of thinking ahead to what abundance you want to experience in 2018 and to start taking action (Divinely inspired) towards it. Remember spirit clearly have your back.

More and more people are remembering their spiritual gifts and this card is recognising that. Yet, Raziel is also bringing forth the idea that you are to use this knowledge and your gifts wisely. Also, working with love and integrity.

Raziel is a wonderful guide to work with, along with Muriel if you want to develop your gifts further. If you ask then they will guide you to the classes, workshops, books and mentors who can guide you on this phase of your learning.

However, what Raziel says is that you don’t have to be using your spiritual gifts to be doing spiritual work. He says that your clairsentience, clairvoyance, clairaudience, advanced intuition and healing can be put to use in many other ways. Supporting you in your daily life and personal healing, as well as helping you in your day job/career.

A perfect example of this can be seen in a previous teaching role where I would work and call in the Angels to clear the energy of my classroom and create a peaceful, harmonious environment for the children to learn. I had a “lively” class yet there would be many moments throughout the day where they would be working peacefully in class, calmly chatting to friends or completely focused on the work and choosing to work in silence.

The calming energy of the Angels really helped to bring peace, calm and harmony to the class environment.

This is just one example, yet I could site many, including using LOA and crystals to manifest new opportunities, raises and promotions. So, use your spiritual gifts wisely and know that your spiritual team can guide You, support you and lead you to what is for your Highest. Being sure to work with integrity each and every time.

Time to put your spiritual and creative gifts to good use. No more leaving them to lie dormant where nobody can see them.

Overall, this feels to be a month where you are putting in the groundwork for what you want to receive in the new year. The month of January being voiced to me clearly.


RUNES

Rune: Berkano

This rune symbolises the goddess, healing and fertility. The feeling around the appearance of the Berkano rune is to step into and awaken that goddess energy from within. Awakening your feminine gift of intuition (and your spiritual gifts) to guide you along your path. It very much brings that feel of walking With spirit. Do you give yourself permission to allow them to light your way and help you? There is also that feeling of transformational healing and this being an auspicious time for starting something. I hear “getting out of the rut“. It’s your time to shine.

Have an amazing month.

With love xo

The Law by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

The sun may be clouded, yet ever the sun
Will sweep on its course till the cycle is run.
And when into chaos the systems are hurled,
Again shall the Builder reshape a new world.

Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal;
Move on, for the orbit is fixed for your soul.
And though it may lead into darkness of night,
The torch of the Builder shall give it new light.

You were, and you will be : know this while you are.
Your spirit has traveled both long and afar.
It came from the Source, to the Source it returns;
The spark that was lighted, eternally burns.

It slept in the jewel, it leapt from the wave;
It roamed in the forest, it rose from the grave;
It took on strange garbs for long eons of years,
And now in the soul of yourself it appears.

From body to body your spirit speeds on:
It seeks a new form when the old one is gone:
And the form that it finds is the fabric you wrought,
On the loom of the mind, with the fiber of thought.

As dew is drawn upward, in rain to descend,
Your thoughts drift away and in destiny blend.
You cannot escape them; or petty, or great,
Or evil, or noble, they fashion your fate.

Somewhere on some planet, sometime and somehow,
Your life will reflect all the thoughts of your now.
The law is unerring; no blood can atone;
The structure you rear you must live in alone.

From cycle to cycle, through time, and through space,
Your lives with your longings will ever keep pace.
And all you that you ask for, and all you desire,
Will come at your bidding, as flames out of fire.

You are your own devil, you are your own God.
You fashioned the paths that your footsteps have trod:
And no one can save you from error or sin,
Until you shall hark to the spirit within.

Once list to that voice and all tumult is done,
Your life is the life of the Infinite One;
In the hurrying race you are conscious of pause,
With love for the purpose and love for the cause.

How to overcome the negativity that comes at you when you’re upgrading your life

People often say that once they start taking steps to upgrade their life, think positively + live a more spirit led life, more negativity shows up in their life.

They feel like they’re walking on cloud 9 only to find Negative Nelly, Jealous Julie, Doubting Debbie and Drama Queen Dawn greeting them at every corner. Snatching that cloud right from under their feet.

Why is this?

Well, I’ve learnt that Negative Nelly, Jealous Julie, Doubting Debbie and Drama Queen Dawn were also within me. I say within me because each time you start upgrading there will be a new Negative Committee ready and waiting for you.

Why? Because they are those parts of you that you need to see, relinquish and, if needs be, heal in order to fully upgrade and enjoy it to the max.

So, what do you do when you meet the Negative Crew? Here’s what I suggest:

TAKE THE LESSON

Ask what this encounter wants to teach you about yourself: What it is that you need to let go of and/or whom you need to forgive? Be prepared that the person to be forgiven is You! Think about all those places and situations in your life where you are showing up as less than your best and highest self. Then get to work on changing that.


PASS THE TEST

It could be that you are being tested by this encounter. Being invited to walk your talk and practise what you preach. So, take all that wisdom that lies with in, make use of those tools and practices and connect with spirit to help you ace that test.


REACH FOR THE BLESSING

The blessing being that you have been given this opportunity to overcome the hurdles within that separate you from your greatness and your soul dreams. It’s a sign from spirit that you are on track. That you are making moves in the right direction. Take the blessing and celebrate the progress you are making.


So, don’t be discouraged when the negativity comes to greet you. Don’t let it take you off your path and lead you back down into that tunnel of darkness. And if you do start heading back toward that tunnel be quick catch yourself and turn back around.

Use your wisdom and clean up whatever is coming up for you so you can become the person you were created to be and live the life you desire to live.

This requires practice at first yet it will get easier and you’ll get quicker at it over time.

You’ve got this!


HOW’S YOUR UPGRADE GOING?

Are you finding it a challenge to stay positive? What ‘negatives’ are coming up to greet you as you upgrade your life? How are you overcoming this? Leave your thoughts and comments below. You can reach me privately here too.

Transformation. Evolving. Dissolving resistance at the Full Moon.

ANGELIC REIKI

The new season has brought with it the energy of change and transformation. Something that many of us at experience at our own level.

I’ve found that transformation, growth and evolving will bring with it that sudden rush of excitement, wonder, curiosity, and hopefulness. This is often followed by resistance. Fear. Guilt.

The happy hormones take a break and give your cells some time to catch up with the all the newness that you are conjuring up!

In my own world, I have tended to find this a week where resistance tends to be at it’s strongest under the gaze of the Full Moon.

The Full Moon heightens our emotions. Bringing to the surface all of the things and people that are in opposition to that which we want to experience, especially in relation to the intentions set at the time of the New Moon. So, this has become a time that I have used this time to “go with the flow” as much as I possibly can. Rather than resisting what is coming up, I’ve tried to flow with it and allow it to be released.

So, I know that sometimes is much easier said than done!

This is especially the case when the old ways, old faces and old places resurface. Reminding you of what needs to be released or shifted to support you in aligning with the new.

To support you through this I’ll share my own magical keys for working with the energy of the Full Moon to facilitate transformation and evolving:

TUNE IN
Your body will tell you when it needs to rest. Your intuition will let you know when it’s time to pause or move forward. Your soul team will guide you towards what is for you right now. Tune in. Do so with meditation, prayer, writing or awareness.

PRAYER
A simple prayer focused towards the solution. One of my favourites is:

“Thank you for showing me where to go, what to do and what to say to whom.”

Another of my favourites is: “I surrender.” Two simple words that can lighten the load. An invitation to God and soul team to take the reins.

CONNECTION
Connection to self or like-minded people. Somehow they both tend to lead back to one another. To fill you up and raise your vibration. To bring you back to centre when you fall.

In the Full Moon ebook, I have also included further tools and practices from my own spiritual vanity case.

I will leave you here, yet I truly hope that you will pivot towards releasing (or whatever else you feel you need right now) so that you can stick with your new intentions, desires, and transformation.

If you could do with a little something extra I will share some notes of inspiration here too. I am available for 1:1 support too, just drop me an email here.

Sunday Soul Note: You are the best spiritual tool you have

chanelmarie

You’re wondering if you’re using the right crystal to heal your broken heart. You’re wondering if you should be doing the burning ritual tonight or last night. You’re wondering why you keep seeing 1010 wherever you go. You’re wondering if you’re doing it.  Yet, if you are following the guidance that comes from within…….

You are doing it right! 

There are no wrong ways or right ways if you are following the guidance that comes within. No comparison required when rewriting or reconnecting with your soul story.

This is because the magic, power and beauty do not lie solely in the crystals, manifestation techniques or healing sessions.

The magic, power and beauty lies in You too.

Probably more than you could ever imagine.

Tools and practices, such as crystals, for example, are great for helping us heal, align, manifest or protect your energy. However, the real test will come in the absence of these tools. In the heat of the moment when there’s no time for yoga, meditation or a quick pull of your Oracle cards. In those moments you are left with just one resource. Just one beautiful gift:

You!

Therefore, the connection you have with your whole self is key.

Knowing the voice of your intuition versus the voice of fear. Being able to decipher the subtle clues that your body gives you in the moment. Knowing what your energy feels like so that you can recognise when what you’re feeling is not your own.

On my own path and through the readings I’ve given to women, I’ve learnt that all of what we experience, is helping us reconnect with our true selves, from the inside out.

Whereas the spiritual tools, sessions and practices are amazing if they are not supporting you in remembering all that comes from within you. Then what are they doing for you?

Day 5: The crystal everyone needs to know about

Personally, I feel like I’ve saved the best crystal for last!

Today’s crystal is one that I think that everybody should have in their crystal collection because of its versatility and the amazing impact it can have on your vibration. Let me introduce you to Selenite.


WHY YOU NEED SELENITE IN YOUR LIFE

OMG! There are so many reasons why you need this crystal in your life and this is everything to do with its amazing healing benefits.

You can use it to cleanse your energy field of any dense and heavy energy that you’re carrying within. Whipping your chakra system back into shape by clearing and balancing each chakra. This also brings you back into alignment: Feeling positive, good about life and even better about yourself. Who doesn’t wanna experience that?

It amplifies the energy of crystals, objects and intentions because it is such a high vibrational stone. Therefore it’s a good idea to use this Selenite alongside other crystals to amplify the energy of your intention.

Selenite doesn’t need to be recharged and can actually be used to charge and cleanse other crystals. That being said I will, when guided to, cleanse mine with Sage or Angelic Reiki. It’s also commonplace for me to use one of my big chunks of Selenite as a cleansing and charging bed. This means I lay my crystal bracelets and watch on top of the Selenite so that it can be cleared of unwanted energy. Then it’s recharged and ready to be used the next day. Magic.

Liquid Light, another name for Selenite, attracts the energy of light. Which is why it’s so good for cleansing, purifying, protecting and raising your vibration.


HOW TO USE SELENITE

There are so many different ways to use and reap the energetic benefits of this beautiful crystal. Here is my absolute fave:

Aura Cleansing. Move your Selenite wand slowly and intentionally down your body. I like to start at my crown chakra (top of my head), down the front of the body and all the way down to and under my feet. You also want to make sure that you run the wand over your arms, as well as down the back of your body too. Saying a prayer of intention or visualising the dense energy being absorbed by the Selenite where it’s transmuted into light. I like to pay attention to areas where I’m experiencing pain, as this tends to be where there is a block in the energy.

Failing that you can also sleep with it under your pillow at night to promote relaxation and a good night sleep. You can also place it on your body during meditation, including laying it on a pain point or chakra point to promote healing and balance.


WANT MORE?

5 days of crystals have now come to an end. I hope that you’ve enjoyed getting to know your crystals as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing with you.

If you would like to delve deeper I’ll be offering Angelic Reiki healing with crystals from July 2018. This can be received remotely and in-person at my new treatment room in London.  For further details or to book please contact me at hello@chanelmarie.co.uk

Can’t wait to work with you.

With love,

Chanel Marie

Energy 101: 3-step energy routine

Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of women talking about feeling energetically in the funk. That is feeling:

  • Drained
  • Tired
  • Stressed
  • Anxious

Maybe it’s because we are approaching the holiday season or is that you are holding on to energy that isn’t yours?

girl-2778471_640

Back in 2009, I was taught how to raise my vibration, ground, clear and protect my energy. Simple energy management tools that changed my life forever. Prior to this, I was one of the women who fell into ‘sensitive’ category and was absorbing the energy of everything, as well as everyone around me. Blissfully unaware that the majority of what I was experiencing wasn’t mine to claim or own as my own.

This is something that I’m increasingly seeing many women (and guys) continuing to experience today. So, in this space, I am going to share the energy management tips and techniques that I was taught back then, alongside those acquired since then. Sharing in the hope that I inspire and support you to reclaim your own energy, as well as your power.

Daily energy routine

As a beauty and skincare lover, I’ve come to compare managing my energy in my skincare routine, something that I have heard Kyle Gray suggests and it’s something that makes perfect sense to me.

There are 3 key steps to my skincare routine that I practice twice daily – once in the morning and once in the evening. Those key steps are:

  • Cleansing
  • Toning
  • Moisturising

and this is exactly what I do with my energy.

Cleansing

At this stage, you remove all of the dirt, impurities, and make-up that has built up during the day or night. When it comes to your energy it’s important to cleanse too. Removing the energy that has attached itself to you and is not optimal for your wellbeing.

When you cleanse your energy you let go of all of that funky, dense and heavy energy. It also means that you feel better and lighter. This also helps you to recognise what isn’t yours and notice when denser energy is coming your way.

Toning

In your skincare routine toner also has cleansing qualities, yet it’s primary function is to bring the skin’s ph level into balance. On an energetic basis, it’s about bringing your own energy into balance, once you’ve cleansed of what no longer serves you. This involves increasing that connection with yourself and your own innate goodness, which is a beautiful way of also recognising your worth.

When you tone your energy you are remembering your own greatness and standing in your own power. In doing so, you instantly raise your own vibration and feel better about yourself. Something which is so valuable to your success, the ability to manifest and feel good.

Moisturise

When you moisturise your skin you are sealing the goodness that you have put into your skin. When you moisturise on an energetic level you are doing the same thing, whilst protecting your energy too.

This step of protecting your energy is one that everyone tends to reach for first, before the other steps. Whilst protecting your energy is important what you find is that you’re holding onto the energy that isn’t optimal for your wellbeing, sealing it in place with your protection techniques. Over time, you end up building and storing up energy that’s not serving you.

Energy management techniques

  • Invite Archangel Michael into your meditation. Ask him to cut/dissolve all cords, hooks and attachments to people, places, experiences, memories and/or situations across all dimensions of time.
  • During meditation spend time expressing gratitude to yourself and the fact that you are simply showing up for yourself. Bring to your awareness of what makes you great and honour that. Two Archangels who can really support you here are Jophiel (honouring your beauty) and Raziel (remembering your gifts & Divine magic within).
  • Grounding your energy by visualising roots from your feet travelling down through the layers of the Earth and wrapping around a beautiful red crystal that energises you.
  • Visualise yourself in a pyramid of protection filled with white light, although some prefer purple light. Set the intention for the light to transmute any real or perceived negative energy, keeping you protected.
  • Through prayer and intention call on Archangel Michael to wrap you in his blue coat of protection. This is great for those moments when you feel the shift in the energy coming your way and you want to protect yourself energetically.

So there you have a few techniques that you can begin to use in order to manage your energy. Also, don’t forget to use the gift of asking your guides or the Angels if what you are experiencing is yours or not. If it’s not yours, then you can clear it and implement the above steps. If it is yours then you can take the action to get to the root of the problem and clear what’s not good for you.

Amplify Your Intentions By Letting Go

Full Moons are generally a time of letting go, yet this Full Moon the energy feels super ripe for releasing anything that is no longer serving you. This may also mean letting go of control so that you can give the Universe the space to respond to you.

So, in honour of this Full Moon, I am sharing the letting go that I have been sharing amongst my followers for some time now. It is one that you can use at the time of a Full Moon or anytime when you feel the need to release.


“And suddenly, you just know that it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.”

~ Meister Eckhart

people-2575941_1920

Clear your vibes
The moon is at it’s most powerful when full so you don’t want to be clogged up with negative or stagnant energy, be it within or in your home. Using Sage or Palo Santo to cleanse your space and self. A prayer that you may want to use in order to do this is:

“Dear God/Angels, Thank you for clearing the space and me of lower energy and vibrations. So, that the power and energy of intentions are amplified and energised under the light of this full moon.”

Letting go ritual
On a loose sheet of paper write out what you are letting go. Once you’re complete you may want to burn or shred the piece of paper, which is symbolic of letting it all go. You may also want to use this time in order to write down who you need to forgive, including yourself and also burn or shred this list too.

Finally, complete this ritual by meditating on what it is you know what to bring into your life now. The whole idea is that once you let go you create the space for something new and better to take its place.

Please note: Letting go and forgiveness are a process. Therefore, you cannot expect to always be able to simply let go or forgive during one letting go ritual. So, it’s important to be patient, kind and gentle with yourself, giving yourself time and maybe even taking on additional support in order to heal you through the process.

Energise yourself
Letting go is never easy and can take a lot out of you energetically, so it’s good to energise yourself in a way that feels good for you. One way of doing this is to run yourself a Himalayan or Sea Salt bath, which is ideal because salt is cleansing and rids the body of toxins. Another is to simply unwind with your crystals for a mini crystal healing session or meditation. Whatever feels good for you is what you should do to gently lift your energy. Bearing in mind that the activity you choose may vary from one full moon to the next.

Enjoy the process and do let me know how you get on or if there is anything that I can help you with.

With love,

Chanel

8 reasons why your intentions are not manifesting

The problem with asking for a sign.png

Picture the scene: You’ve got your vision board proudly displayed and set your intentions for what you want to manifest into reality. You’re wearing your crystals in your bra and adorning your wrists with healing crystal bracelets. Positive mantras are popping up on your phone as divine reminders throughout the day and you’re seeing 111 everywhere you go. To top it all you’re bloody excited about finally manifesting your dream into reality.

As time goes by the excitement and enthusiasm begin to dwindle. Why? Because that dream you want to be your reality doesn’t appear to be happening. That beautiful space that you’ve created for that dream is filled with absolutely nothing. Absolutely sweet FA.
When you find yourself in this position it can be really disappointing and frustrating. However, don’t despair because I have 8 reasons why your dreams are not manifesting into reality.

1. Clarity
Are you crystal clear when you set your intentions? Being crystal clear is not just about declaring what it is that you want. It’s about declaring from the heart with absolute confidence and certainty that what you are asking for is what you want to manifest into reality. Your reality. Now, I know that setting a clear intention is pretty obvious, yet it is amazing how many people (and I am guilty of this myself) will set vague intentions. Vague intentions that they kinda, almost, maybe want to manifest into reality and then wonder why it is that their intention hasn’t manifested yet. The thing to remember is this:

“The clearer your intention is the stronger the vibration behind your intention.”

This is so important because the Universe responds to your feeling, vibration, the energy.
One tip is to get yourself a gorgeous notepad and pen that you use for writing your intentions. Also, write some actions that you can take towards manifesting your intention, ideally on a daily basis. They say that the physical process of writing down your intentions is very powerful.

2. Worthiness
Wanting what you want is one thing. Believing and knowing that you deserve what you want can sometimes be another. What do I mean? Well, say you to want to manifest a new, kick-ass high-flying job that pays your highest salary to date. However, on the inside, you do not believe that you are worthy of attracting such a job into your life and this unworthiness contradicts the words of your intention, which can cause the energy to slow or become blocked.

Now, you’ll know if you have feelings of unworthiness with help from a coach, psychic or energy healer. You can also tune into yourself, notice the feelings that come up in your body when you think of manifesting the job of your dreams. Do you feel a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach? Do you feel uncomfortable or uncertain? How you feel will give you a strong indication of how worthy you feel of manifesting your dream into reality.

3. Inner work
This carries on from point number 2, yet could relate to other limiting beliefs or stories that you have related to what it is that you want to manifest. For example, you want to manifest a new job yet you were treated badly in your last few jobs in that industry. Therefore, you carry this belief that working in that industry brings bullying, stress and unhappiness. If you still subconsciously are hanging on to the old story and resentment that’s the energy that you’re manifesting from. That’s the vibration that the universe will be responding to. So, take the time to check in with yourself and do the inner work. Either working with the angels, an energy healer, counselor, coach or psychic to help you to do the inner work and rewrite those old stories. However, the point is: Not to shy away from dancing with your shadows because on the other side is where the magic will be found. The magic is the exact thing that you have been searching for.

4. Energy
In the same way, your vibe attracts your tribe, it attracts or repels everything else too. I mean, be honest, are you consciously managing and directing your energy or is your energy just a little (or a lot) all over the place? More to the point, is your energy aligned with your dreams and intentions?

Many people focus on the words and the thoughts. Feeling they’ve got to say positive words and have positive thoughts. Yep, that’s great! However, the universe responds to your energy and heart. And what can happen is that your thoughts and words say one thing, yet your heart and vibe says something different. Take the time to check in with yourself and get into the habit of managing your energy, rather than it manage you.

5. Head fuck
This comes about when you’re obsessing over the outcome, constantly asking for and stressing over the signs you’re getting or not getting. Just thinking about this creates a sense of stress and overwhelm. And guess what? Stress and overwhelm is the energy you add to your intentions. This also contributes to you feeling ungrounded and unsettled in your energy. In the process, you are literally holding onto your intentions and squeezing the life out of them, whilst simultaneously fixating on the outcome.

In order to get around this try letting go, surrendering or releasing the need to control and fixate on the outcome. By doing this you will be able to guide yourself away out of your head which allows you the space to reconnect with your heart and your soul. This opens up space for the energy to flow and Divine guidance, as well as your intuition to kick in. As you know, when you are in your head this is where you tend to over-analyse and other think things which is what creates that disconnect, as well as funky energy.

6. Action

“Dreams don’t work unless you do.” – John C Maxwell

Often people like the idea of change and manifesting their dreams, yet they’re not committed to taking the action to making it happen. Resulting in their dreams remaining as dreams. People who fall into this bracket tend to:

  • Not follow through on requests or commitments that they make
  • Play the role of victim, blaming something or someone else when things don’t go their way
  • Wait for things to happen or procrastinate

One thing that can help is an accountability partner who will motivate you to take action steps. Writing down your actions and taking action steps, no matter how small, each day will align you with your dreams. Over time, you’ll see these steps add up and you’ll get divine sparks of inspiration that eventually all lead to the manifestation of your dreams.

7. Soul
Sometimes what you’re asking for isn’t in alignment with your soul and God and the Universe have something planned for you that is so much better. Better than you could ever have imagined. This tends to happen a lot with manifesting romantic partners. Some people get fixated on manifesting their ex back or a specific type of guy. In the meantime, better guys or opportunities to maximise their capacity to fully love themselves, as well as step into their power present themselves only for you to reject it all.

So, be aware that your soul, God and the Angels know what you need best, tune in and allow yourself to be guided. If it’s not working out as you expected it to trust the process and be open to something or someone better for you.

Also, check in with yourself to ascertain whether or not you are manifesting from your heart and soul. You can often find that you are trying to manifest that super-glam job working for a coveted brand when in reality, working for that brand wouldn’t bring the sense of joy and fulfillment you seek on the inside.

8. Faith
Having faith and trusting is the final reason. The saying is that “I’ll believe when I see it” yet, in law of attraction circles, it’s a case of believing, trusting and having faith first. Something that can be tricky when things are not happening quick enough or you’ve got inner work to do before you get to the prize. Yet faith and trust really help to boost your confidence which helps to align you with your dreams and desires.

Doing the inner work helps to raise your faith and trust levels because you’re shedding the shadows which can influence the fear and doubt. You build trust through surrender and strengthening your relationship with yourself and the energies around you, whilst continuing to take divinely inspired action.

Closing words
God and the Universe already know what it is that you want. In fact, your soul dreams, the dreams that you make when you connect with your heart and soul, are there ready to manifest into reality. All you need to do is align with that energy because you have everything within you to make your soul dreams your reality, even if you have to dig past the crap to get to that magic it’s all there, lady! I believe in you, you’ve got this!
