The one thing that’s stopping you from manifesting the life of your dreams

I had a client once who used to always say she couldn’t afford things — from little stuff, like the occasional green juice at her local organic cafe, right through to big stuff like the overseas trip she’d been dreaming of for years. You can probably guess exactly what happened: despite having a good job and a decent income, she manifested precisely what she kept on saying, and was never able to afford what she desired.

I had a client once who used to always say she couldn’t afford things — from little stuff, like the occasional green juice at her local organic cafe, right through to big stuff like the overseas trip she’d been dreaming of for years. You can probably guess exactly what happened: despite having a good job and a decent income, she manifested precisely what she kept on saying, and was never able to afford what she desired.

I had another client who always complained that she could never lose weight… and of course, that was exactly what she manifested — despite the fact that she moved her body every day and was eating clean and healthy. 

Another client repeatedly told me that she wasn’t smart enough and didn’t have the funds to start her dream business… and as a result, that became her reality, and she’s still never managed to get her dream biz off the ground. 

And then there was Sarah, another one of my beautiful clients, who used to constantly  talk about how tired she was and how stressful her job was, then could never understand why she never experienced vitality.

Can you spot the pattern here?

It’s easy to identify this kind of negative ‘manifesting mojo’ in others, but it can be a lot harder to see it in ourselves. Yet the reality is, if you’re not living the life of your dreams, there are areas of your life where you are unwittingly and unconsciously manifesting some bad juju for yourself and your life.

You see, we are manifesting our life moment to moment. It’s an undeniable and unavoidable law of the Universe. Every word you speak AND every thought you think is an intention you are putting out into the cosmos. And guess what? The Universe is listening… constantly and intently!! 

The words you speak and the thoughts you think are SO powerful. 

They create your reality. 

Every word and thought matters! 

So, it’s time to do a little stock-take on what you are putting out there. Because I want you to live your best life. I want you to be wildly wealthy, fabulously healthy, and bursting with love. And in order for you to do that, you must master that inner critic inside your head. 

Take the below quiz to see how you’re doing. Answer yes or no to the following questions…

Are you someone who says:

I can’t afford…

I will never…

I can’t achieve…

I can’t start…

That won’t work because…

I am not …….. enough 

That doesn’t happen for people like me…

I’ll never be able to ..….. until I…

I’m just someone who’ll always be…

It’s in my genes to be…

I never had a chance because…

I’ve just always been bad at…

If you recognise any of this language from your own inner (or outer) dialogue, it’s time to become super conscious of your thoughts and words and learn how to master your inner critic. 

Thinking the thought ‘I am not [fill in the blank] enough’ is bad as it is, let alone saying it out loud for the whole world (and Universe) to hear. So, it’s time to become aware of everything that comes out of your mouth. Before you speak, take a moment. Breathe before your words come out, and make sure you are speaking from your heart and not your head. This will save you loads of stress and stop you from uttering things you may wish you didn’t say. 

It’s also crucial to take responsibility for your part and how you are showing up. There’s no point blaming everyone else for how your life is turning out. You are the one in the driver’s seat, and if you don’t like the path you’re taking, you’re the only one who can change that. 

So my sweet friend, for one last time, share with me in the comments below all the things you either think or say to yourself that you want to let go of. Don’t hold back. Now is the time to seriously commit to letting these go. They are not serving you any more. Your dream life is waiting and the dress rehearsal is over… so take action now! You’re AMAZING! And you CAN DO IT!
