The secret power of acting as if (it’s not what you think!)

The secret power of acting as if (it’s not what you think!)

The power of acting as if is not faking it til you make it.

In fact – it’s kind of the opposite.

So I want to know:

  • Do you act as if you already are the person you hope to become? 
  • Do you act as if you already have some of those things you hope to have and plan to have? 
  • And do you act as if you’re already living that life that you desire? 

Cary Grant is quoted as saying, “I acted like Cary Grant for so long that I became him.”

(And if you don’t know who Cary Grant is, it’s because you’re a lot younger than me.) 

It’s genius advice because here’s the thing:
We all go on a journey in life. We start out in one place as a certain person, and then we aim to have the life of this new person that we want to become. 

This new life cannot be lived by the same person as the one who is at the beginning of the journey. 

This life can only be lived by the person who has created it. Who’s comfortable in it. 

So the trick – as with all things I teach – is to start from the inside out. 

You have to become that person.

READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

You have to think, speak, feel and act like that person who has the life you desire. 

You have to tap into the power of acting as if.

And then the outside of you can start to fall into place and match that.

Acting as if isn’t about faking it until you make it. It’s not about being fake at all.

It’s actually about BECOMING REAL… becoming your new reality.

It’s about lining up your thoughts, feelings, words and actions, and having them all be congruent. This means that to your nervous system and to the quantum field to which you put out this constant signal, you’re sending a really clear congruent message of, “This is who I now am.” 

Then the outside of you can start to morph, and the pieces of the puzzle can fall together for you. Everything can come together for you to match what’s going on on the inside of you. 

But you need to start inside, and acting as if is a wonderful way of adding another layer to the work you’re already doing by managing: 

    • How you’re feeling
    • The thoughts you’re thinking
    • The words that you’re speaking
    • What you’re consuming in terms of media and the conversations you have 

Acting as if is very powerful because the way you act directly speaks to the way you think and what you truly believe about yourself. 

Just do any little token gestures, such as buying the more expensive cheese at the supermarket or walking up to somebody at a networking meeting, introducing yourself confidently and asking them about themself. 

Do something that you wouldn’t normally do, but that that person that you hope to become would totally do every single day. 

Pick something as an experiment for the next seven days and start acting as if. 

I challenge you to do it for seven days and I’d love to hear what shifts for you, how it helps you become more congruent and feel more congruent with where you’re going, and what happens.

Please.. stop complaining that your manifesting isn’t working

Please.. stop complaining that your manifesting isn’t working

Rant alert!

If you’ve been complaining that your manifesting isn’t working because the things that are showing up aren’t quite right or aren’t enough, then I’m going to give it to you straight. 

If you want to hear it, stick around.

I see lots of people complaining that their manifesting isn’t working.

They want to manifest a certain amount of income and they’re manifesting some money but it’s just not enough. Or the things they’re manifesting aren’t the “real” thing.

And they complain… but that’s what puts an instant stop on the whole manifesting process!

I’ll give you an example.

Somebody was saying that they wanted to manifest a contract for a certain dollar amount. I think it was a million dollars. And then they started trying to get into energetic alignment with that and doing all the things, and they came across and found a million dollar bill. You know., one of those mockup million dollar bills.

And they went, “Oh, yeah.. But that’s not real so that doesn’t count. Ha ha, Universe. Very funny.”

And so they totally dismissed it.

And then they got a phone call. They got an offer for that contract that they were looking to seal a deal for a million dollars for, and it was a much lower offer – just a percentage of what they really wanted.

And they went, “Well, that’s not what I want. I want a million dollar offer on this contract. I don’t want a $10,000 or $50,000 offer.” 

And they just got really annoyed and frustrated that it’s not working because “I want a million dollar contract and I’m being offered this low sum.” and “I want a million dollars in the bank not some fake million dollar bill.”

Now… that really gets up my nose because when you’re thinking like that, when you’re looking at these signs that the Universe is sending you and you’re deciding that, “No, it’s got to be instantly the result I’m looking for and this is not it and so it’s not good enough.”

What you’re actually doing is you’re completely shutting down the energy and you’re ignoring the fact that the thing you’ve got there it’s an amazing preview of what’s possible.

It’s the Universe starting to have some fun with you and showing you these fun little ways where it’s like, “See! There’s a phone call out of the blue of somebody offering you some money for that thing of yours. Yeah, it’s not the amount of money you want but they called you out of the blue. You didn’t even chase them up.” and “Here’s a million dollar bill for you.”

How cool is that?

Play with that. Have fun with that.

This lack of patience is really what shuts down the process of manifesting.

Because manifesting has a gestation period. Just like you get pregnant but you don’t have the baby the same day or the next day. There is a gestation period. 

It’s the same when you’re looking to manifest a certain outcome. (and whether or not you should even be doing that is a whole other story for another day)

But if the Universe is starting to show you previews… if it’s starting to show you little glimpses, little hints… that’s amazing!

It means that you need to keep going, that you are on the right track, that you should be using this to help you get really excited and go, “Oh my god, this is totally possible!” and “The Universe is having fun with me and I wonder what else would show up? I wonder what other cool stuff will happen and what else is possible?”

That’s the space you need to get yourself into.
That’s the frame of mind you need to get yourself into.

Because when you do that, then you’re joyfully along for the ride and you’re opening up to all the amazing ways that that specific outcome that you have in mind can actually come about.

And you’re enjoying all the little things that happen along the way and just loving every step. And when you do that, you get all these amazing bonuses. Even though you don’t get the million dollar contract, you might get all these lovely little side benefits that are absolutely amazing.

So remember that – that when the Universe is showing you previews it means you are totally on the right track. And you need to use that to your advantage. You need to use that to help you accelerate that momentum and get even more aligned with that vibration so that that thing that you’re desiring can come into your experience in full for real in due course – when the gestation period has ended.

And how long that takes is entirely up to you.

If you’re going to keep dismissing all the signs along the way, it could take literally forever.

But if you accept the signs and celebrate with the signs, you actually accelerate the gestation period. So remember that every little sign along the way is for you to use to celebrate and to get even more in alignment.

Now, I’ve got the perfect freebie/resource to help you get even better at this. I’ve linked it in the description for you today so make sure you grab that and get into it right away. It will help you really use everything that becomes available to you so that you can build the business of your dreams. So you can have the income you want and all the rest of it.

Until I see you next… keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.

When your manifestations keep missing the mark

When your manifestations keep missing the mark

If you keep finding that the people around you are manifesting the things that you wanted and it’s starting to drive you a little bit nuts, then this one’s for you. 

It‘s happened to most of us, right? There’s a car you really love that’s on your vision board and in your visualisations, and then your neighbour comes home with it!

Or maybe there’s a dream holiday that you’ve been wanting to go on FOREVER.

And again, it’s on YOUR vision board. It’s in YOUR visualisations. It’s been on YOUR list forever. And then your best friend announces, “Guess where I’m going on holiday?” And you think, “Really? Really? That’s mine!”

What the hell is going on? When you keep having these ‘close but no cigar’ moments and you think, “What am I doing wrong? Why is everyone around me getting my stuff and I can’t seem to get it?”

What I most importantly remind you of is that It’s actually a really good thing.

It’s a good thing because it’s a PREVIEW.

The Universe is giving you a preview. AND it couldn’t even be in your experience in the first place if there wasn’t some level of vibrational match.

So, when your best friend goes on your dream holiday or your neighbour comes home with your dream car, that’s the Universe giving you a little encouragement, “You’re getting there, kid!”

It’s a wink, right?

It’s letting you know that it’s within your realm of possibility.

In fact, it’s actually within your physical 3D experience. It’s right there!!!

And yes, it’s not in YOUR driveway yet.
And yes, YOU’RE not holding the ticket with YOUR name on it yet.

But it doesn’t matter.

Because remember, there is no lack. There is infinite abundance out there.

The thing that often happens when people see others around them starting to manifest the things they want for themselves is that a lack mentality can set in, where you think, “Well, if they’re getting it, that’s one less available for me.”

But that’s not how it works… and you know this….

So I’m just here to remind you that you’re not needing to buy into the lack mentality and instead, you need to remember that the things that are in your experience can only be there if there’s a certain level of VIBRATIONAL MATCH going on.

So, when you can see it…
when it shows up in YOUR Facebook newsfeed…
when it shows up in YOUR neighbour’s driveway…
when YOUR
friend is going on that dream holiday…

it’s the Universe telling you YOU are damn, DAMN close!!

Just keep going! It’s all good.

So remember that.

And then, when YOU go to that amazing holiday and your best friend turns around and says, “Oh! But I want to go there.” You just tell her, “Honey, the fact that I’m going and I’m your friend means that you’re next.”

This is how it works – there is no lack; there’s infinite abundance.

It can only be in your experience if there’s a level of a vibrational match going on already.

So if you want to keep fine-tuning your vibration so that when those things start coming closer you can keep heading towards them and accelerate towards it actually being in your hands… in your driveway… in your experience… then grab my free training!

I’ve given you the link in the description. It will help you make all those little fine-tunings, and ensure that you head towards the thing you want rather than inadvertently heading away from it.

How to manifest your dream house… not.

How to manifest your dream house… not.

Today we’re going to talk about why leaving your shoes in the cupboard of the display home won’t help you manifest that home. 

Apparently, in display homes – especially those big lottery homes, they have to clear the cupboards of all the shoes people leave behind while they’re inspecting it.

That’s because people watched things like “The Secret” and decided that, “Okay. If I want to manifest this house and make it mine, I have to leave something of mine behind because I’m coming back. I need to leave my energy here, and I need to show the Universe that this is my house and I’m claiming it and I expect it to be mine.”

It’s kind of cute but it’s not going to get you the house.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Simply leaving your shoes in the cupboard does not get you the house.

First of all, make sure you buy a ticket 😊

Here are some things you CAN do to help you manifest that house – or another house like it:

The very first and most important thing is that you get in vibrational alignment with the version of you who lives in that type of house.

Because just showing up in the house and going, “Oh my god! This is so amazing! I’d love to live here. This is how millionaires live.” And then hiding your daggy pair of old Converse that you were going to throw away in the cupboard and thinking that’s going to do the job…. 

That won’t do the job.

The house and YOU can only come together when there is a vibrational match – when you are the kind of person who lives in that kind of house… who expects to live in that kind of house… when you think, speak, act and feel like the kind of person who lives in that kind of house.

Incidentally, things go a bit weird sometimes for people who win lotteries and so on.

There’s a huge percentage of lottery winners – a massive percentage of lottery winners – who go broke and go back to where they were before and even further back within just a few short years.

The reason is they haven’t upleveled THEMSELVES.

They haven’t BECOME the person who has that level of money, who has that level of abundance, who lives in that kind of house.

So forget about leaving your shoes in the cupboard and doing stuff on the outside of you that are just cute token gestures.

If you don’t shift who you fundamentally are… if you don’t start acting, feeling, thinking and being that person who is a match, it’s never ever going to happen.

You’re just going to go through lots of pairs of shoes, and become a real pain in the bum to those poor real estate agents who have to clean out the cupboard every single week.

Instead, when you walk through that house (Great thing to do by the way! Absolutely do it.), visualise yourself living there.

FEEL what it feels like to be that kind of person and notice where there are some resistances in the mix.

Maybe there’s the voice in the back of your head that says, “But… I couldn’t even afford to pay the rates on this house.” 

Notice these things and then make it your work to bridge the gap.

Bridge the vibrational gap.
Bridge the mindset gap.
And bridge the practical gap.

Because certain things require a certain level of habit and confidence with managing your finances around that level of income.

You need the practical skills and the practical habits down pat so you’re ready to go.

You need to have your mindset polished up so that you don’t end up blowing all the lottery winnings and ending up broke or back where you were.

And you need to become a vibrational match so that you can bring it into your experience in the first place.

So it’s mindset, manifesting and the practical side of things. All of those need to become a match.

Remember that it’s all about you actually becoming a match to the thing you desire.

It’s not about leaving your shoes in the cupboard. That won’t make the difference.

Now, if you want to make sure you get all the tweaks done that need to be tweaked within yourself so that you can become a match to all those things you desire – whether it’s the dream house, the dream income, the dream business, the dream holiday (or whatever it is) – then grab today’s freebie because it’s the perfect thing to help you take the next step on your journey.

Why you’re manifesting more problems

Why you’re manifesting more problems

Contrast is when things happen that you prefer not to happen – usually what we label a ‘problem’. 

Or if you want to reframe it slightly, a challenge. 

Or if you want to reframe it even more, contrast that gives you clarity about what you DO actually want.

Here’s the thing with contrast…

See, we’re raised in this world where we’re told that when stuff is unwanted, we have to fight it really hard.

But what we actually do by doing that is… it’s like quicksand – the harder you fight it, the more it sucks you in!

It sucks you under and you cannot get away from it. What then actually happens is you start spinning on the spot.

You get stuck in the contrast. 

It’s all you can see and so you just keep activating more and more of the same.

It takes a little bit of retraining, so here’s how:

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Be kind to yourself. Start becoming aware that when something happens, you have a choice on how you want to react.

Yes, some things will happen that will really upset you.

Some things will upset you just a little bit, and you can choose to allow yourself to get sucked into it and go deeper into the quicksand. 

Or, you can choose to go, “I don’t like that at all.” Then stop – pause. Realise it is this contrast thing, and this is an opportunity for you to get clarity on what it is you do actually want.

From there you have another choice:

Do you want to complain that you don’t have what you really want and instead you got this thing just now AGAIN that you don’t want, or do you go, “Thank you for giving me clarity that THIS is really what I want.” And let that go. Let it go down into the quicksand without you, and you go after THIS.

Start focusing on THIS. Start looking at ways you can make THIS happen. 

Start looking for evidence on how things like that, or little signs and glimpses of it are ALREADY appearing in your experience.

You’ll actually activate more and more of this, and you’ll start moving in that direction.

So the message from this Effectology  tip is simple: 

Use the contrast as the bouncing platform to take you in the direction of where you do actually want to go. Do not allow yourself to get sucked in by it and dragged under. Because you’ll end up stuck there.

That’s a really powerful tip.

Try it on little things. Don’t go for the biggest, most important problem in your life right now. Just try it on something little. Somebody not letting you in traffic. Or something that, really, is not a big deal and just use it.

Use it to train yourself to stop, step away from it and think, “This just gave me clarity on what I do want… what I do appreciate. And look how much evidence of that there is in my life.”

And you’ll start noticing some really major shifts and it doesn’t take very long.

Off you go.

Play with that and please come back and leave me some comments to let me know how it goes.
