Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette reflects on passion, art and the spiritual lessons that helped her become grounded. Alanis is candid about the toll that fame took on her life. After admitting she didn’t laugh for two years, Alanis shares what she has come to realize about happiness: “I think happiness is a state, and it ……
However, an important cautionary note is that you absolutely must set realistic expectations. It’s not possible to manifest love with a “perfect” person because there is no such thing as a perfect person. You have to be willing to find love with someone who is perfect for you but who has some flaws and difficulties nonetheless.
It is also one of the most challenging because we are instantly confronted by our limitations. If we don’t treat ourselves for these limitations, I believe we risk remaining prisoners of our own version of “what is,” or our current reality. I’m particularly interested in those wild ideas about “what could be” that leap into our minds and crash up against our beliefs about what is possible for us. These are the big, hairy audacious goals that excite and scare us at the same time. If you have one of those goals in your heart, I am talking to you today.
It’s easy to want to sprint through to the end of the year without stopping and taking a moment to acknowledge the year that’s been, all that you have achieved, and all the growth that’s taken place. In fact, I’ve heard a lot of people say they can’t wait for this year to be over, or that this year was their worst year yet. (I’ve even heard peeps refer to 2016 as ‘two thousand and shit-teen’!) Now sure, I understand you may have had a challenging year — but it’s all perfect. Everything always is! Everything is always unfolding the way it’s supposed to. So, before you write this year off as a total shit sandwich, please take a moment to reflect back… you may be pleasantly surprised.
He explained that we spend much of our lives holding onto our identity. He describes that the ego’s natural aversion to change is one of the biggest detriments to creating the life of our dreams. When we can tune into what makes us feel expanded vs. contracted, and release anything that holds us back, we create room for new things to enter that are a better match to our newly higher vibration. Powerful stuff!
I believe that in life, we don’t get what we want or what we need. We get what we commit to. To me, the word Commitment means ‘becoming one with, in our minds’. It has nothing to do with other people, but it has everything to do with embodying an idea, a quality, so that you live from it, each and every moment.
3) Releasing the Past. Is there someone you’re still in love with? Are there any past relationships in your life that are still unresolved? Almost every person that comes to see me with hopes of finding love is holding onto a past love or relationship, either consciously or unconsciously. I call this person the passenger in their car.
Next, you want to do things that speak symbolically to your subconscious. To do this, you want to think “in pictures” (like having a vision board, which is a well known Law of Attraction technique.)
Each dream has it’s own timing, which may in reality have nothing to do with your personal timing. Trying to force anything will typically only create stress in your life. Allow things to unfold naturally ‘through you,’ rather than ‘by you.’
But when was the last time you did something for yourself that was truly indulgent? You don’t have to wait for the guy to show up before you start doing the things that you truly enjoy! Think of this as self care on steroids. It might mean getting a pedicure, booking a weekend away or just going out for a nice glass of wine all on your own. Getting out there and actually doing the things you like is a great way of telling the Universe what you want more of.
Thankfully, you don’t need to be a mad scientist to master Quantum Jumping. All you need is an open mind, and the willingness to learn. Once I’ve shown you how, you’ll be able to use the untapped power of your mind to ‘jump’ into alternate universes, and visit alternate versions of yourself who already have all the skills, knowledge and experience you desire.
The trouble is that most of us are doing this on autopilot, and often manifest negatively. I want to focus here on the process of conscious creation, where we decide to bring into form some new, more positive ways of being and create richer, more meaningful, positive outcomes in our lives.
Detachment, on the other hand, is about how those desires ultimately manifest for you. When you become too attached to when and how your desires show up, you screw up the manifesting process. Instead of holding the vibe of playfulness and abundance, you start sending out signals like concern, worry, and stress. Don’t do that!
This is the primary purpose in uniting and amplifying your vibrations as One. You are moving and expressing yourself as Divine energy as you talk and teach and catch waves of vibrations from your soul and understand what your soul is saying and that is the power when you speak from the soul. You embody Divine powers using your talents given from the higher soul vibrations as they move up inside and flow thru your soul and you are more connected to the cosmos and see fruits of what you do as One. The divine gifts within the soul evolve specific vibrations flowing from divine within you as one. You have embodied your souls as one and have connection with the Divine and Cosmos. Your talents and gifts are empowered by God to be used as his instruments as TF as you move inside your soul with same vibration. You meditate with your soul. The Soul gets charged as the One Soul in its connection to God in the supernal triangle. You can do miracles when you open up your soul and allow it to have its freedom for it has no boundaries and limitations and wants truth in order to live free and not be under any control except Divine flow. You see purpose as souls as you live as Divine Instruments for God’s use knowing you are Divine Beings.
You can be happy now, and by doing this work, you are re-creating your world and embracing your capacity to Love. You are growing yourself into a new you. You are becoming the kind of person you’ll eventually attract into your life. You’re becoming more and more your True Self! Once you align with your True Self and take inspired action from that place, the possibilities are infinite!
You know I don’t share anything with you that I don’t 100% belief, but this is a cool opportunity to achieve your goals and create HAPPINESS in your life – which is what I did with this process (and tons of body-loving activities ;).

When you put aside your doubts, you can begin to imagine in both mind and body what it will feel like to have your Wishes Fulfilled. Think about what you plan to manifest — then use your imagination to feel what that feels like in your body. Does it feel natural to you? Does it really feel like this is the “you” that you are deciding to be? By staying only with what your senses tell you is your reality, you place a barrier to letting your imagination create all that you wish for. Your imagination is unlimited.
Breathe from the belly, not the chest. This type of breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system (rest-and-digest), which helps produce a sense of relaxation and contentment and allows us to be calm and clear when taking inspired action.
Remember that now you know exactly what you want, you will be certain when you find love. When you manifest love with a soulmate, there is no ambiguity. You will just know you have found the right one.
The final step is to let go of the outcome and have faith. Sometimes all it needs is a little faith. A prayer may be the only thing missing. Especially after you’ve defined your goals and taking deliberate actions accordingly. Reach out to others we are part of a community of souls. Social support helps you get through barren times. Have faith that your prayers are answered (even if the answer is ‘not right now’ or ‘not this way’). Have faith that your life does have a purpose. Patience means once in a while, you just need to ‘let go and let God’.
If you’ve already learned some of the basics of the Law of Attraction, you’ll know that creative visualization is a real cornerstone of the process of manifestation. However, your visualizations can always be more powerful and influential!
Life is not a fairy tale and “he” is not just going to show up and whisk you away. That only happens in reality about 1% of the time. You are free to wait, but if you are anything like me, that isn’t your style. Fortunately, that isn’t necessary either. How long are you going to keep yourself from experiencing bliss in all areas of your life? How long will you keep yourself from truly having it all?

If you think about having billions of dollars, envision this. If you dream about bathing yourself in money, imagine it. During the entire time, do your best to feel the money you hold in your hands, and even acknowledge their unique smell.
But when you aren’t present and are in your mind, you’re thinking about what went wrong in your past and how long you’ve been wishing for what you want to manifest. You’re also hoping your future will be different and fearing that you wish will never come true.
That is why many self-help teachers tell us that we need to feel good to manifest what we want, but it is my experience that many people find this extremely hard to do because it is too much of a “stretch.”
