Weekly round-up: New Moon + Free Downloads

Well, we are now moving into a New Moon in the sign of Virgo. Which feels to be a time of closure, letting go and endings. Followed by the prospect of a new beginning or phase of your own personal journey. What that looks like will be very much dependent upon where you are on your journey.

Things that are coming up for me are:

Reflection – Being guided back to this time last year and the plans that were made. Questioning are they still relevant and if not, what needs to change?

Routines – Looking at my daily routines and considering what needs to be tweaked or completely overhauled in order to be more in alignment with myself and forward plans.

What is coming up for you?

One thing that I like to do is support others to support themselves so I have been busy creating and revising Ebooks with practices and tools that I have used, as well as continue to use to support myself.

The 4 keys to manifesting + how I used them to manifest free training with a global brand

Copy of Services - AR (1).png

I’m delighted to announce that I’m now a certified OPI GelColor nail tech!

What’s even better is that I manifested the course absolutely FREE! Yep, free training with the world’s leading nail brand! Here’s how it all came about…..

After qualifying as a beauty therapist I decided that I wanted to begin by specialising in nails. I’ve always loved experimenting with colour and sparkles on my own nails. Loving the way you can complement your mood or add a little something extra to your outfit, just by painting your nails. So it seemed like a no-brainer.

However, as any nail tech knows there are so many different gel nail brands out there. So for a new nail tech like me, making a decision isn’t easy.

After taking advice from nail techs and trying out the big brands for myself, I came up with a list and enlisted my spiritual team to assist me in making a decision. How?

I asked for a sign.

A sign to decide which brand is best for me to train with and use on the natural nails of you lovely lot!

All signs pointed to one brand + one training provider.


FOLLOWING THE SIGNS

Initially, I hadn’t intended to work with my spiritual team to manifest a free place on the course. All I wanted was to make the optimal choice when selecting a brand to work with and training provider to learn with. Yet, the Universe and God clearly had other ideas.

The next available course was being provided by Capital Hair + Beauty in Brighton on the coming Monday. It meant that I would have to take a day off work and make the trip up to Brighton by bus and train. However, I decided it was worth the trip and booked my place.

Although it wasn’t all plain sailing.


WHEN THINGS DON’T GO ACCORDING TO PLAN

On the day of the course I got up early made the trip up to Brighton. When I arrived I made my way to the coffee shop and went to check my phone to see which bus I needed to get to the venue. That’s when I noticed the missed call and voice message from the training provider.

The course had been cancelled.

Initially, I was calm and even joked with the receptionist that OPI should offer us a lamp or a free course as compensation! However, as the morning went on my ego kicked in:

‘You took a day off work for nothing.’
‘You trusted the signs, for what?’
‘Maybe beauty isn’t for you.’

However, one thing I’ve learnt is that when the ego pipes up:

Let it have its say. Then silence it with gratitude + prayer.

That night I took my own advice and surrendered. Prayed and affirmative prayer. Being sure to ask for what I wanted: To receive a full refund. To be fairly compensated. To be offered a place on the right course. Following my prayer, I contacted Capital about new dates for the course. Yet, I also felt guided to contact OPI about training with them directly and mention the cancellation that had occurred that day.

The very next day I received an email offering me a free place to train with OPI at one of their training venues. I also received a full refund from Capital and an OPI ProSpa kit (which is AHMAZING!)


THE OPTIMAL CONDITIONS FOR MANIFESTING

The lesson: The optimal conditions for manifesting my desires into reality involved surrender, prayer, intuition and action. And those conditions could help you too. Here’s how…..

  1. Surrender clears the decks. It involves letting go of control + anything else that creates resistance.
  2. Prayer re-establishes that connection to Source and it’s also where intentions are set.
  3. Intuition guides and protects. Sometimes it doesn’t make logical sense yet it leads you in the direction of your intention and prayers.
  4. Take inspired action towards making your prayers and intentions a reality. This creates the energy for synchronicity, divinely timed next steps and your intentions to unfold. The Universe and God will meet you each step of the way.

Now, along the way, there may be hiccups and minor setbacks, as my manifestation has shown. However, it’s worth remembering that everything will unfold in divine timing, so there is no need to hold on so tightly. In fact, I am sure that if I had been obsessing about getting a free place on the course things would have turned out a lot differently.


CELEBRATE WITH ME

I’m celebrating passing my gel nails and beauty therapy course by offering a FREE OPI ProSpa pampering manicure, in the comfort of your own home. This offer is available in July + August. Treat yourself by clicking here or email me on hello@chanelmarie.co.uk

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!
