What is Manifesting?

Manifesting is creating what you want in life. In the bible you can read, “God said, let there be light, and there was light.” That’s manifesting…not as easy for the rest of us though.

Why not? Because we are human. Because we have beliefs that limit our ability to manifest. I may want to have love in my life but I may also hold an unconscious belief that I am unlovable. Even though I want love, I can’t manifest love because my belief has a stronger influence than my want.

This is where we get into energy. Manifesting is based on the idea that what we focus on is what we bring into our life, energetically. If I believe (unconsciously) that work has to be hard, then I will create that very situation in every job I have. If I unconsciously believe that I am not valuable, other people are more likely to treat me this way. I may draw in friends who take advantage of me or treat me poorly because deep down, I believe this is okay.

If you are skeptical, I can’t convince you this is true. I can only tell you that I know it to be true in my own life experience and the clients I have worked with. You can actually see it in someone’s body posture, hear it in their voice and feel it in their energy. For example, someone who may believe, “I am a victim” might have a collapsed chest, lowered shoulders and a meek voice.

If this topic is making you feel depressed or worried about your own limiting beliefs, not to fear! The best part of this energetic system is that you can change your beliefs. First, you find them. Once you find your limiting beliefs, you have the power to change it. You can shift energetic things through writing, through art, through meditation, through guided visualizations and with a variety of somatic techniques.

This is what I feel most passionate about. Especially working with women and manifesting because in this male-dominated society we sometimes forget our power. Manifesting is powerful because we are creating what we want from life. We are defining our energy and our beliefs. So exciting!

If this sparks your inner desires to be rid of limiting beliefs, join the creative therapy sisterhood focused on manifesting: The Society of Wild Women!
