How to Manifest your Destiny
By Steffany Barton, Angels Insight
When it comes to making predictions, I don’t mind being wrong.
A few years ago, I worked with a woman whose vacant house languished on the real estate market. Wanting to move the property at a reasonable price in a timely fashion, she asked me when I foresaw the much anticipated but overly awaited sale.
As I turned inward and aligned myself with her angels, I could see a date, a far away one, long into the future. With a deep breath, I generically stated, “It’s going to be while.” Unwilling to accept this, she retorted, “What does THAT mean?”
Jaw clenched, I again offered, “It may take some time if you let things go as they are. You could change it. With a little help from your angel friends.”
“Tell me how. I want to sell this house now!”
So we spoke at length and she left the conversation empowered with tools to rewrite the future. And indeed, she followed up with me in good time. The house had, by some miracle, sold. In a neighborhood with multiple listings, each priced below hers, the house had sold!
During my career as a psychic medium, I have come to understand that we set in motion our experiences with our thoughts and beliefs, both the conscious thoughts and the more subtle ones that powerfully express through the unconscious mind. But, when we change our beliefs, we by the very virtue of being divine co-creators with Source, change our destiny. Rather than whimsy of a god on a throne, our fate is a manifestation of will.
With the calendars marking a new year, I would like to inspire you to step into your authentic spiritual power by sharing with you a three-step process for creating the future. Easy to follow and simple to apply, these steps will assure that you confidently, consistently, and clearly manifest your destiny. And no crystal ball is required!
First, Get Clear.
Getting clear means turning off the computer, shutting the door, closing off the world’s noise for a bit of time to that you can listen to the voice within, so that you can remember your dreams, and so that you can feel in your heart and soul that which you truly desire.
Some questions to help get you started are
1. What do I truly love to do?
2. As a child, what was my most enjoyed activity or the job I wanted as a “grown-up?”
3. When do I feel most confident?
4. What are the activities in which I engage where I feel completely unselfconscious?
5. What makes me feel free?
If you can find the answers to these questions, you will begin to get clear about what you really want in life.
Sometimes, we get hung up on details and bogged down in particularities. I encourage you instead to focus on the qualities you most appreciate in life. If you want to increase you income but would like more free time with friends, maybe you decide to manifest “Abundance.” If you love hiking and being outdoors, but your health has diminished in some way, perhaps you focus on manifesting “Vitality.” Trust that the Universe is infinitely more creative, resourceful, and wonderful that our linear, concrete minds tend to be. Let yourself be delightfully surprised at how innovative and loving Spirit can be when you allow yourself to focus on the themes, the core requirements, for a life well lived. The Universe will handle the details.
Next, Goodbye Fear!
Fear will highjack the best laid plans, will sabotage the wildest dreams, and will undermine greatest of moments. Do not negotiate with this terrorist! Instead, as you begin to consciously manifest your destiny, listen only to the bold and true voice of your spirit. Remember, you came here to grow, expand, and succeed in every way.
Some of the ways fear will attempt to hold hostage your dreams are:
1. Using the past to resign to the future. When we fall into the thinking of, “That is the way it’s always been....” what we are really telling the Universe is “This is the way it’s always going to be.” No more! Decide right now that you can let things be different, divine.
2. Comparing or judging your dreams against the supposed beliefs of others. This fear comes in the form of, “My family will think I’m crazy” or “No one else does this” or “Yes, but what if I lose my friends or have to make changes.” When it comes to creating your life, however, no one else need have say! YOU are solely responsible for following the call of your soul. Only you can be you! Comparing yourself to others hampers your ability to consciously co create. So you be you. No comparisons.
3. Yes but everything will change.... although fear thrives in chaos, fear resists change. So, as you reprioritize your life, as you realign with your spirit, you may find that the thought of change keeps you stuck. Although the fear of change is natural, stagnation is not. Move gently and lovingly through change, but change! You deserve to have all that you want. ALL.
Before you resort back to the old routines, before you keep getting what you’ve always got, say, “Goodbye fear! I’m here to love!”
Last, It’ Here!
This step is the most motivating, activating, and delighting part of the process of manifestation. In truth, everything we need is already here, now. Often a shift of focus and a willingness to recognize this truth engages us to deepen our faith and hold fast to our dreams.
As an example, let’s return the afore mentioned quality of abundance. When you find a penny on the ground, pick it up and affirm, “I manifest abundance.” If you receive a tip for doing extra work, affirm, “I manifest abundance.” When you look at the countless blades of grass in your yard, recognize abundance. As you fill your tank with gas, honor the abundance of fuel to get you where you need to go. There is an abundance of oxygen to breathe, an abundance of sunshine to bask in, waters flowing, trees growing, love showing up in infinite and innumerable ways. Recognize this immediately and frequently and you will find that your creating your destiny becomes a journey enriching, inspiring, and engaging, indeed!
Be clear, goodbye fear, it’s here. Your destiny, your life, love!
This is your year! I honor you and see your light. You are loved.
