  • Meditate To Manifest!

    By surrendering, by allowing, by embracing the present moment – you are effecting movement in that very moment of stillness.

    Being still to create change can feel contradictory; as though the two energies are mutually incompatible. But the energy of the Divine is still and it is also the energy of infinite creation. When we tap into our God-selves through meditation we can find that stillness, and also our forgotten talent of pure creation. They coexist and reside together, deep within our minds and hearts. The energies of stillness and creation are tantamount to one another – they are not separate or opposing, despite what the common “hustle” rhetoric would have us believe.

    I wrote on my Instagram recently Look Within Or Go Without and the message here is the same. When we spend time looking within to clear limiting energy blockages and expand the divine light which radiates out from our heart centre, we are tuning in to our most powerful manifestation tool. I say that “your heart centre is your creation station”, but often we close down our heart centre as we go through daily life to protect ourselves when we are at work or anywhere else that we see a potential for confrontation. We need to consciously open it back up again in order to operate at full force, and we do that in meditation.

    Being still is productive and fruitful. It prepares you for the action stage, and ensures that your actions are not in vain because you are storming ahead without focus and, therefore, heading in a strange direction. Pausing to look within and seek your deeper truths sets you ahead of all the others who are too busy doing exactly that.

    Gabrielle Bernstein has a saying “stop, drop, and meditate”, because when she is feeling the most rushed and busy is when she is most inclined to meditate. She knows that calming the mind is a powerful tool – it unleashes your power of creation and makes you into a more focused and refined warrior for your dreams.

    Invest the time to look within so that you can direct your heart energy and energy d’être towards that which you want and that which will be of service. Those extra minutes you spend meditating with intent can save you years in wasted effort and opportunity.

    After all – burnout is not sexy.

  • Keep The Faith… Even When It’s All You Have

    Faith is the reason why our dreams come true.

    Without faith, our manifestations can only ever be ideas that are one day forgotten.

    Faith gives us the strength to take all of the action steps required and see them through to completion. Faith tells us to keep going, even when everyone else is telling us to stop. Eventually, these outside calls for us to change path can bleed into our subconscious until we start to tell ourselves that we need to stop too – but faith is our faithful guardian which shields our ears from all of the negative noise.

    One of my favourite quotes is from the book Conversations With God: “If you have but the faith of a mustard seed then you can move mountains.”

    When we lose our faith, we don’t move mountains; we don’t move anything at all in fact, because it is always too easy to give up. When we give up hope, we lose inspired action too and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Once we sacrifice faith and tell ourselves “it’s never going to happen”, we begin to lose momentum. Then, without the passionate fire of faith to fuel our ambition – it never does happen!

    I am always amazed by marathon runners. I tried to run a 5K for charity once, and even though I run 3K twice a week anyway, the experience made me want to pass out as I crossed the finish line. Overcoming physical and mental obstacles doesn’t happen by accident or because any one person is better than another. The difference is the grit and resilience that they can muster up from the faith they have in a guaranteed outcome. If it is guaranteed in your mind, then it can be guaranteed in reality.

    Burn the acronym KTF into your mind. “Keep the faith; Keep the faith; Keep the faith.” No matter what is going on outside of you, Keep The Faith. If it is what you truly desire in your heart and it is for your highest good, then it will happen – so keep the faith and don’t give up.

    Next time you feel like you want to give up or you are crumbling under the pressure of the outside world, ask yourself which you will choose: Faith or Failure?

    It is the most important decision you will ever make.

  • Remove the Ego! ⋆ We, They, You… not I

    It’s not about you.

    Wayne Dyer said it. Louise Hay taught it. Gabrielle Bernstein felt it. Neale Donald Walsch wrote it.

    When I started Millennial Manifestor, I wanted to try a completely new approach. Even though I had already pursued things for passion or creativity and not just money alone, I had never pursued something that wasn’t a quest for personal satisfaction. And yet, by not seeking personal gain, I’ve gained more than anything I have ever done before. More than everything combined, in fact.

    Removing the ego and thinking in terms of “We”, “They” and “You” means that you are always focusing on what is in the highest good of others and not necessarily what is best for you (the “I”). It means you have the fuel to keep burning late at night because the stakes are higher than just yourself. You have not only got yourself to let down, but everyone that you are here to serve.

    There is a divine mission within each of us, and while you will learn and grow from uncovering your mission and sharing it with the world, your mission is really something which just travels through you to in order to reach a collective “We”, “They” or even a single other “You”.

    At the Mind, Body & Spirit convention I went to in Birmingham last weekend, I had an intuitive reading from the Hay House author, Stephanie J. King. One of the messages came through loud and clear from both her channelling and the cards I pulled.

    It read: “Divine messages are not coming FROM you, they are coming THROUGH you.”

    While this is something I have intuitively felt to be true (it drives me nuts when my fiancé interrupts me mid-flow from the soul) it was comforting to get reassurance from an outside source. Maybe I wasn’t going crazy after all. It’s not about me, and that’s fine. It’s a mission that I give thanks for every day and I feel honoured to accept.

    It’s not about you either, regardless of how great you are. Your greatness has been given to you only so that you can serve others. The only thing the “I” can feel great about is having the commitment, bravery and dedication to deliver on its mission and serve outside of itself.

    The ego speaks first, the soul speaks second. Who is the loudest of the two? The ego can get so loud that it deafens us. But in the same way that empty tins rattle loudest, following the passions of the ego “I” will never deliver half as much as following the quiet calling of the soul. Serving “We”, “They”, “You” gives your message the power to spread across the world and illuminate hearts and minds everywhere. Serving the “I” impacts your life only, and even then, it is counterintuitive because it feels vacant, empty and unfulfilling.

    I read in ‘Transform Your Life” by the Buddhist monk, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (p.136): “By practising humility and wishing for others to enjoy higher status, we accumulate a vast amount of merit. We should understand that now is the time to accumulate merit, not to waste it.” 

    Gain esteem from helping others. In the process, you will be helping yourself too. There is no greater soul high than serving your mission and impacting the world for the better. You grow; your soul grows; the world grows.

    Focus on “We”, “They”, “You” and see what happens.
