"Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality;
man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true."
I first learned about manifesting in 2007 when I first saw the movie The Secret. I loved the concept of creating whatever I wanted in life, but I struggled with exactly how to do that. My interest in the Law of Attraction got supercharged in 2010 when I began studying with Jack Canfield. First I started listening to his book The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where Your Want to Be.
I had a lot of time off that summer. I was in transition. I was doing work I loved with teenagers, but not making enough money to pay my bills. I had lunch with a friend and was talking about my state of mind and the state of my affairs. I told her I needed to figure out a way to make more money. It was stressing me out. She told me I needed to take some time off, go to the beach, relax and read a couple of romance novels and chill out. I hadn't had time off for quite some time and could really use a break from everything. I told her I planned to do some hiking and kayaking so I didn't have time to sit down and read romance novels. She told me about Audible and audiobooks and pitched that romance novels could be very relaxing and that they might supplement my hikes and paddles with a bit of a spark. I had never heard of Audible, nor did I have an mp3 player or an iPod. I enlisted the help of Liam, my teenage neighbor. We headed to the store to get an mp3 player and I was soon signing into Audible to download my first romance novel.
The truth is, I didn't really want to listen to romance novels. My intention was to sort out my financial dilemma and figure out a plan. I was pretty sure it was the only thing that would really allow me to relax. It felt like the right thing to do with my time and energy. And that's when it happened.
"Get this book for FREE when you create your Audible account today". On my screen was the Chicken Soup for the Soul guy, Jack Canfield, on the cover of his book, The Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. I had met Jack about 25 years before at a live event my work sent me to. I really liked him and remembered buying one of his products ... an audio tape series that I had listened to many times over the years. I clicked on the link and and enlisted Liam's help to download it to my mp3 player. That afternoon I packed up my backpack and headed down to the lake for a paddle. And that afternoon, my world changed.
As I listened to the Success Principles book, I heard Jack talk about his live training event, Breakthrough to Success. I got goosebumps. I pay attention to goosebumps. My grandmother called them "God bumps" and told me that they are a sign that I'm being guided by something beyond me. Three months later, through a series of powerful events, amazing coincidences and a miracle or two, I stood in the registration line at the Scottsdale Princess in Arizona, collected my workbook and waiting for the doors to open and for Breakthrough to Success Live to begin.
BTS literally changed my life. Jack taught us how to get clear about our life vision, helped us explore passion and purpose and taught us a blueprint to create whatever it is we decided we wanted to create. He taught us conscious principles of manifesting in 7 areas of our lives and taught us how to clear the subconscious blocks that were manifesting things we didn't want. At BTS I decided that I wanted to learn more about this work and perhaps, someday, even serve on Jack's live event assisting team. The work was that powerful. I went on to become certified by Jack to teach his work and I live the principles every day of my life. I also work with Jack's company as the Team Leader of his Breakthrough to Success and his Success Principles Train the Trainer live events. I'd say that my grandmother was right about paying attention to goosebumps!
Even though I went to Audible in search of a couple of romance novels my friend had recommended, I never got them. Instead I manifested exactly what I needed to help me manifest the results I intended. To sort out my next steps. How to get from where I was to where I wanted to be.
Today I am a master manifester. I love sharing what I know with others to help them harness the power of the Law of Attraction and how to apply the success principles to create amazing things in their own lives. I have so many manifesting stories that I love to share and Ripple on Silver Lake is one of the most powerful of all of them. That's why it's the perfect place to teach my first official class titled Manifesting Magic with the Law of Attraction.
