One of my main focuses as of late is developing my ability to manifest what I want in my life. We all posses the ability to create what we want (and don't want) to show up in our lives but how can we do it more effortlessly and enjoyably?
About seven months ago I made a list of 10 things I wanted to manifest in my life within 10 months. I would look at this list occasionally to soak the intentions in, see what I could cross off the list, etc... but realized yesterday that I hadn't looked at it in quite some time, probably not for two months, so I checked it out and was shocked to see that nearly everything on the list had come true! Everything from going to a fun, outdoor concert to enjoying spending time in the kitchen trying new foods and beverages (this one is actually a HUGE manifestation for me). It was such an amazing, reaffirming moment to realize that the simple act of writing down 10 things that you want to happen, letting go of the "how" of it all and letting the Universe do its thing to bring the items to you, works!!! The key is feeling good, heartfelt and passionate about your selections, not thinking (and especially NOT WORRYING) about how/when/where they will happen and LETTING GO! Soak your intentions in, feel how happy you will feel when they come true but then allow the Universe to figure out the "how" because it will undoubtedly bring you what you want in better ways than we can ever imagine <3
It's so important for us all to take time for ourselves and nurture our own dreams because that feeling of empowerment and well-being will carry over to our relationships and the world. Seeing that so much had been manifested from my list of intentions motivated me to think and get clear on new things I want to experience in my life. It can be so much fun to work with the Universe and co-create the life of our dreams and it really can be much simpler and easier than you think.
Just grab a notebook and go :)
I'm On A New Show With Nina Garcia :: Marie Claire Fashion Director, Project Runway Judge & NY Times Best Selling Author!
Pretty cool that I can officially say I've been personally empowered by Nina Garcia, one of the world's top fashion experts/directors/authors. I was recently cast to take part in Nina's brand new show on AOL and I was filmed this past week. I've worked in television and radio, both on-air and behind-the-scenes, for years and Nina and her crew were all talented, sweet, passionate and fun. It was a total pleasure shooting with them all.
There is no official air-date as of yet but I will definitely be back to give you all an update, not only because I'm a part of it but also because I feel it will be an uplifting, positive fun show to watch; a breath of fresh air compared to most of the trashy, dramatic programming out there.
Nina's new show delves into how rough this past year was for me as my 10 year relationship with my fiance ended and we discuss how far I've come since going through such a traumatic time and how I realized my style was stuck! Nina gave myself, along with other lucky ladies selected, refreshed style advice and makeovers so we can enter into the new phases of our lives feeling as strong, empowered and confident as we possibly can! We all feel like new women and needed our styles to match!
What a PERFECT merging for me to be able to work with Nina as she says "fashion can be transformative and empowering, and I'm excited to use the AOL platform to inspire women" and now I can write about how she empowered my look on MY blog about empowerment ;)
