STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE HOW

Even when we have a crystal clear vision of how we want our lives to look, we all too often get trapped in one simple word: How? This tiny word causes us to believe that we have to have it all figured out before we can enjoy manifesting the life of our dreams. Once we drop the “how” from our mindset, we can then, and only then, allow the universe to show us, one step at a time, how to get to where we are going!

BABY STEPS

When it comes to manifesting, so many people get caught up in the how. How am I going to make this happen? How is this going to occur? What am I supposed to be doing? The how, the how, the how. The how will stifle your energy. It will box you in if you focus too much on the how.

It’s a reasonable question to ask though. How DO I get to where I’m going? And that’s okay. Taking action IS important, but you don’t go from A to Z without breaking it all down into steps.

Taking the very first step to the thing that you're wanting to manifest is also very important. So when I say don't worry about the how that does not mean don't take action. Taking action is key in telling the universe that you're very serious about the particular desire, dream, or wish that you have. And by taking baby steps towards it, things will naturally start to unfold.

Taking action is key to telling the universe that you're very serious about the desire, dream, or wish you have.

JUST SAY YES

When it came to starting my business, I had no idea HOW it would occur. As a matter of fact, I was about ten baby steps into the process before I realized I was actually doing it! I was just following the energy as it presented itself to me, not knowing I was actually preparing myself to start my business.

I started to get certified in different modalities I was very interested in. In no way, shape, or form did I ever think I would create a business with those modalities. I was just interested in learning them. And so I followed the energy as the energies presented themselves to me. In other words, I followed the opportunities and said yes to the opportunities when they presented themselves to me. And when I would get like a full-body, yes, it's that I'm in alignment to do that.

And this was just the beginning!

Pay attention to the signs and to the guidance you receive from the universe!

WEIRD? I'M IN!

I had a new friend that I just met, and I invited her to go water skiing. And I was super excited to go water skiing. And I said, ‘Hey, do you want to go water skiing?” She's like,” No, I'm doing something a little weird.” And I love weird stuff so of course, it piqued my curiosity.

What was so weird and even better than water skiing? Reiki! She was using our day off to go get certified as a Level 1 Reiki Practitioner. I had no idea what it was, I just knew I need to tag along. So I did! I could feel my body gravitating toward whatever it was she was doing and I needed to follow that full-body yes.

This opportunity to jump into someone’s “weird” was the starting point to learning about hands-on healing, which I had avoided for so long. And this was something that allowed me to follow the energy of other things that I was interested in learning as well. It also helped me get over my fear of hands-on healing because it was something I was really nervous about doing, and this was another avenue for me to practice what that looked like. And so I wasn't worried about how I was going to do it. I just followed the opportunity of what presented itself to me.

There are opportunities coming your way at all times. It's up to you to actually pay attention to these opportunities.

DON'T WORRY, JUST...TRUST!

When you are getting a full-body yes to something, that is your soul telling you you're on the path to something great here, that this is in alignment with your path. When you follow these opportunities, the next opportunity will present itself to you. This is where not worrying about the how will just kind of present itself to you.

I find that when I am just handing it over to God or the universe and not worrying about it, the universe will provide for me. If you're worried about the how ask the universe to take care of it for you. I often will say, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing. Please help me, God. Please help me, universe. I need your help. I want you to help me with it. Please guide me. And that right there just says, I surrender to the process. I am open to what it is, and what is an alignment for me to do. And I'm there. I want to be there. I'm open to it.

I surrender to the process. I am open to what it is and what is an alignment for me to do.

ACCEPT THE NOW AS PART OF THE HOW

When I lived in the midwest, I never thought I’d move to the East Coast. And when I lived on the East Coast, I never imagined I’d move all the way to the other side of the country to the West Coast. And still yet, I never imagined after a vision of us living on the West Coast came to unbelievable fruition that we’d be moving again, to the…midsouth! Every place we’ve lived felt like the place where we belonged. Could all of those places actually be that? Absolutely!! Right now isn’t your whole story. But it’s certainly part of it!

Every move was in perfect alignment with where life was headed and each time we acclimated to a new area, we felt a dream was coming true. Did those changing dreams mean that they weren’t a valid part of the journey? Does that mean that that dream wasn't good, or does that mean that what we did was bad? No, absolutely not. We got exactly what we were meant to get from the move, and we got a lot of clarity on what we desire to have when building roots. And so a new how presented itself to us when that dream, when that desire was complete, and then we just followed the next spot that we were supposed to be.

Anytime you get caught up in the how you will dim your light. You will create a lot of friction in contraction in your energy field. Let go of the how and hand it over to the universe.

Timing is everything when it comes to manifesting and the how, and how the how wants to unfold. We're all working on divine time.

REPLACE HOW WITH WHAT NOW?

Like I said before, action steps are super important. You just don’t have to take all of them at once! It’s important to take them one step at a time! Pay attention to the signs that the universe is gifting you on a consistent basis on what steps to take. Take small actions towards the desire on a consistent basis.

Those actions do not have to be major. They don't have to be huge actions. They can be as simple as:

  • Creating a vision board
  • Start reading about a topic you’re interested in
  • Take a walk to clear your mind and open it to new possibilities

The key is to take action so that you can see, sense, and pick up on when the universe is sending opportunities your way. Let go of the how, and you will open yourself to an abundant amount of possibility and you deserve to manifest the things that you're wanting to manifest in your life.

NERVOUS? GOOD!

Just because you're nervous about doing something doesn't mean that it's a no. Oftentimes people mistake nervous energy as a no versus it actually being nervous excitement. When my Sacred Awakening students share with me that they are nervous, my response is "Isn't it great? It's because you're excited about what you're about to learn."

When we have that nervous energy come up, invite it in and explore it with great curiosity. Because when we're nervous, that also means there's an opportunity to grow outside of our comfort zone. Nervous energy and exciting energy can feel very similar. So it's okay if you're nervous about taking those steps, take them anyways!

When we're nervous, there's an opportunity to grow outside of our comfort zone.

Those “gut feelings” you have…What if I told you that it was your intuition beckoning you to pay attention to something you already know? Developing your intuition is an amazing spiritual practice that can allow more ease in your life as you can trust that what is...

Full transcription of the episode:

When it comes to manifesting, so many people get caught up in the how. How am I going to make this happen? How is this going to occur? What am I supposed to be doing? The how, the how, the how.

The how will stifle your energy. It will box you in if you focus too much on the how. So let me back up for a second. Taking action is very important. Taking the very first step to the thing that you're wanting to manifest is also very important. So when I say don't worry about the how that does not mean don't take action. Taking action is key in telling the universe that you're very serious about the particular desire, dream, or wish that you have. And by taking baby steps towards it, things will naturally start to unfold.

I know for me when it came to starting my business, I never knew how that would occur. I honestly didn't even think about how it was going to occur until I actually was ten steps into the process because I was just following the energy as it presented itself to me, not knowing I was actually preparing myself to start my business. So with that being said, when you are wanting to manifest something, anything, let go of the how.

And I know that can be very difficult at first, but the universe always has something way better planned for you than you can honestly think of. What you have to do is pay attention to the signs that you're receiving and the guidance that you're receiving in order to do that. And the guidance can come in different ways. It could be just like a desire to go to yoga, or it could be a conversation you have with a friend that all of a sudden sparks your interest in something.

And I'll give you an example: Like for me, how I started my business is I started to get certified in different things I was very interested in. In no way, shape, or form did I ever think I would create a business with those things. I was just interested in learning them. And so I followed the energy as the energies presented themselves to me. In other words, I followed the opportunities and said yes to the opportunities when they presented themselves to me. And when I would get like a full-body, yes, it's that I'm in alignment to do that.

And one of those things was I got guidance to start learning how to meditate. And so I found my first teacher. I took a meditation course and in that course then I decided to take her meditation teacher course. That course, I never thought I would actually be a meditation teacher, I just found it fascinating and interesting. And in that course, I learned how to like, how to do hands-on healing, how to do exorcisms, how to read auras, and how to do a dream interpretation. I was really interested in all of these things, and I found it really fascinating.

One of the things in that course that made me really nervous was doing hands-on healing. And all of a sudden, I had an opportunity present itself to me, and I said yes to the opportunity that would give me an opportunity to learn more about hands-on healing. And at the time, I didn't even know it was hands-on healing. Let me share what that opportunity looked like and how it presented itself to me.

So I had a day off, and we were going to go water skiing. And I had a new friend that I just met, and I invited her to go water skiing. And I was super excited to go water skiing. And I said, ‘hey, do you want to go water skiing?” She's like,” No, I'm doing something a little weird.” And I love weird stuff, so interestingly, it piqued my curiosity. And I was telling her I'm like, “Oh, what are you going to do?” And she's like, “Well, it's weird. I'm not sure if I should share it with you.” And I go, ‘Trust me, I love weird. Tell me what you're doing.” And I instantly could feel whatever she was doing I was meant to be doing.

I could feel my body gravitating toward what it is. And I didn't even know what she was about to say. So she said, “Well, I'm going to go get Reiki level one certified.” I had no clue what Reiki was. I had no clue it was hands-on healing. I just knew that I needed to be there. I had to go, and I didn't care if I had to break my plans in order to do so. And so what I did is I followed the energy. Instantly.

I was like, “Hey, can I come with? I'm really interested in this, and I really want to go. Can you ask your teacher if I can come?” And interestingly enough, the teacher let me go, even though I never had a Reiki session. And that was something that allowed me to follow the energy of other things that I was interested in learning as well. It also helped me get over my fear of hands-on healing because it was something I was really nervous about doing, and this was another avenue for me to practice what that looked like.

And so I wasn't worried about how I was going to do it. I just followed the opportunity of what presented itself to me. There's opportunities coming your way at all times. It's up to you to actually pay attention to these opportunities. And how I like to pay attention to the opportunity is if I get like, “a heck, yeah. Like, I'm doing this, I'm in it, I got to do it.” And if you're getting that, you're getting a full-body yes, that is your soul telling you you're on the path to something great here, that this is in alignment with your path, and that you'll fold time doing it as well.And so when you follow these opportunities, the next opportunity will present itself to you. This is where not worrying about the how will just kind of present itself to you.

Also, I find that when I am just handing it over to God or the universe and not worrying about it, the universe will provide for me. And so if you're worried about how ask the universe to take care of it for you. I often will say, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing. Please help me, God. Please help me, universe. I need your help. And I don't want to do this. I want you to help me with it. Please guide me. And that right there just says, I surrender to the process. I am open to what it is, and what is an alignment for me to do. And I'm there. I want to be there. I'm open to it. So there's that. Also. Never say never.

I never had plans to move to South Carolina. And when I started dating my now-husband, I moved because that's where he lived. That's where he decided to set up his business. That's where I thought we were going to retire. We would die there. And in no way, shape or form did I ever think that he would be willing to move from this place. He had a very successful, established business, and I didn't think it would ever happen. I always had a desire to live on the West Coast, specifically in California. I've had that desire since I was a kid. And oftentimes I would see these golden hills like wheatgrass in my meditation. And I never, ever thought that I would ever move there.

I was getting an astrology reading back in 2017, and the astrologer said, you're going to make a very big physical move soon. I was like, that's not happening. That's never going to happen. I literally just brushed off the comment, didn't think about it. It was complete. Well, fast forward. My husband had a near-death life experience, and he had to be really honest with himself about how he didn't want to run his business anymore and that it would actually be healthy for him to move to a different state, that it would help him kind of reset and regather what it is that he wanted to do. So never say never.

We ended up moving to California, and I never thought that dream would actually come to fruition. I just thought that it would be just something that I dreamt about. And it was okay. And I was okay with it. And so I let go of the how. And I also said, okay to the opportunity when the opportunity presented itself to me. I let go of what that looked like or how I was going to do it. And I didn't push for it either, because the timing wasn't right.

And timing is everything when it comes to manifesting and the how, and how the how wants to unfold. We're all working on divine time. And so if you're trying to push the time to fit your preferences, it's never going to work out the way that it's supposed to work out or in the highest good that it's supposed to work out. Now, we ended up moving away from California in the beginning of 21. Does that mean that that dream wasn't good, or does that mean that what we did was bad? No, absolutely not. We got exactly what we were meant to get from the move, and we got a lot of clarity on what we desire to have when building roots. And so a new how presented itself to us when that dream, when that desire was complete, and then we just followed the next spot that we were supposed to be.

And so the thing is, anytime you get caught up in the how you will dim your light. You will create a lot of friction in contraction in your energy field. Let go of the how and hand it over to the universe. Pay attention to the signs that the universe is gifting you on a consistent basis on what steps to take. Take small actions towards the desire on a consistent basis. Those actions do not have to be major. They don't have to be huge actions. It could just simply be, I'm going to start creating a vision board, or I'm going to start reading about this particular subject that I'm interested in learning about. Or it could be I'm going to take a walk every day to clear my mind, to be open to new possibilities.

The key is to take action so that you can see, sense, and pick up on when the universe is sending opportunities your way. Let go of the how, and you will open yourself to an abundant amount of possibility and you deserve to manifest the things that you're wanting to manifest in your life. Have fun while you're doing it. Also, just because you're nervous about doing something doesn't mean that it's a no. Oftentimes people mistake nervous energy as a no versus its actually nervous excitement. Oftentimes when I teach our Sacred Awakening course, which is an Akashic records course, a lot of students will say, "I'm so nervous." I'm like, "Isn't it great? It's because you're excited about what you're about to learn."

And when we have that nervous energy come up, invite it in, and explore it with great curiosity. Because when we're nervous, that also means there's an opportunity to grow outside of our comfort zone. And nervous energy and exciting energy can feel very similar. So it's okay if you're nervous about taking those steps, take them anyways because you deserve it and more opportunities will come your way. I hope you enjoyed this episode.
