Well, 2013 is slowly coming to an end, and to celebrate, I've decided to invite a few smart, beautiful and talented women whom I've met during my online journey to blog with me during the month of December. And then, I'd like to help YOU bring in the NEW YEAR with a bangin' creative online workshop called, 'Vision Board Dreams'. (SAVE the date for JAN 5th, 2014!! Details to follow, below). In the meantime, these wonderful guests will share their wisdom on how they've followed their dreams through the power of manifestation --- with a little envisioning, hard work, and a belief that anything is possible, allowing yourself to receive the gifts you truly desire in your life could be materialized in ways you'd never expect.
If you know me well, you know how much of a dreamer I am! Anything is possible, if you put your mind to it.
It's not simply about 'wishing' and hoping things will happen - you gotta take action to get where you want to be or have what you want to have. Nor, is it having the belief that, "Oh, only rich people get what they want..." or saying to yourself, "I'll never be able to have a life like that...".
It goes beyond the material wealth - your desires reside in the core of your heart, and the work starts when you recognize those needs and give them the attention they deserve!
So HERE WE GO! Some of the topics we'll cover this December include:
Which brings us to my first guest, surfer girl, Mercedes Maidana. As you know, being a surfer girl, myself, I have a special place in my heart for other surfer peeps, especially those who embrace such a sacred and soulful lifestyle and extending all of that goodness to ALL areas of their lives (and sharing it with others).
As a surfer chick and woman entrepreneur, Mercedes amazes me with her willingness to GO BIG - she is a courageous big-wave rider, owning it out in the water, and she is the epitome of expressing what it means to live a life full of ABUNDANCE. Today, she shares her story of how she manifested something this past summer: adorable Ella, her surfer dog side-kick!! Such a cool story...
LEARN THE SECRET TO MANIFESTING YOUR DESIRES (IT STARTS WITH 'R')
by MERCEDES MAIDANA
Last week I fell in love, hard. She is strong, fun, loving and beautiful. She makes my heart jump with joy each time I see her. Her name is Ella and she is Labrador, a year and a half old. She is literally my latest manifestation from the Universe.
One day I said to my husband, “If God wants us to have a dog, it will be manifested on our front door.” A week later a friend came knocking on our door, asking if we could adopt his dog.
So, what happens when we ask for something to the Universe and then it manifests itself? Do we give in to fear and reject the gifts that are waiting for us, or do we trust that the gift is the manifestation of our prayers? Do we embrace the R word?
I’ve discovered that in order to manifest our dreams, we not only have to ask very clearly for what we want, but we need to be open to RECEIVING what is given to us.
I invite you to watch the video that I just made on the beach (no make up, no tripod, no professional mic—just me hanging out on the beach with the new love of my life).
Just press Play and learn more about the R word so you can tap into more abundance in all areas of your life.
