I have taken another step in my journey this past week. The last 2 times I picked physical items out from my dream vision. I picked out things that I saw myself wearing, sitting on, things in the room. I did get the big desk calendar I said I would by the way. My shop has been unusually slow and sales have been bad which has stressed me out because I have bills to pay. I can't list new stuff right now because it raises my bill to Etsy. So since I can not work on my shop until things pick back up I decided to shift my focus to myself. How do I want to be in that future that I am manifesting. When I am visualizing the future I want, I have now started to pay more attention to how I see myself. I notice in my daydream I am much more confident, standing and walking with more upright posture, with a purpose. I think about the way I feel and how I feel I look. My choice of clothes, my hair, etc.
So I decided one way to help with the clothes part was to go through my closet and drawers and throw out all the old clothes that are just not "me". The ones taking up space that I hold onto for no other reason than it fits. If I did not feel it was 100% me then it got tossed. Clearing out that old stale energy from my room. I got rid of 2 trash bags full of stuff that just wasn't my style or apart of that future me I envisioned. I still need to go back through and do a second sweep to things I was not sure about. I got rid of shoes, bags, belts, scarves, clothes, etc.
The next thing on my list was my hair. It was getting too long and I decided to trim it myself. I have short hair and years of cutting my family's hair has made it easier to shave my own hair. I cut the sides and back, leaving my top long and angled. My hair is black and purple too, which is very me...lol I started working out more because being healthy is an important part of my vision. I also ordered some makeup that I always wanted. I have been more conscious of my posture and correct myself very quickly when I start to slump again. My confidence has already started growing.
The changes again like before are incredibly small but they are still changes. The small things build up and are just as important. All the little things have motivated me 10x more than ever before when working towards life goals. I just keep looking for little things that I can do here and now. Plus the small steps keep me from getting discouraged about sales being slow. Because I want my shop to grow and be successful and pay the bills. That is what I envision. Working on amazing creative things and increased sales allowing me to provide for my family. So while it may be slow right now, I know that I am still manifesting and still bringing things from my dream into reality. I have faith that it will pick up and continue to grow just like I envision.
I also smudged the house with white sage smoke, including my cleared out closet. Clearing out even more stale energy around me. Next week I will be on vacation with my family. I will let go of all the work stress and take a break from my manifesting. I will do nothing but have fun with my family and live in the moment.

Manifesting Journey Part 2
Hello again. Last time I explained a bit of my process for manifesting. I also shared two things that I had bought and implemented into my life that was a part of my manifestation and brought it into reality. You can see my post here: Manifesting Journey Part 1 Today I am sharing with you a few more things that I have gotten that are a part of that visualization. Well part of the "dream life" I want, was a papasan chair. I had always wanted one. Perfect for meditating and reading in. Well Pier 1 recently had a sale and I also had a coupon for extra 10% off. So my husband drove me there and I used my Pier 1 rewards card. They even had a beautiful purple cushion to match my hair! I was so excited because I always visualized having this chair in my studio and that is where it currently is. (the picture was from my living room) I also found a great colorful candle holder there to match the bohemian decor I pictured in my dream home.
So here we are again. Bit by bit, piece by piece, I am bringing that daydream into a reality. Tomorrow I will be adding yet another piece. I will be purchasing a large desk calender to write on. When I picture my dream studio, I have a nice desk with laptop and big desk calender. I do not have the laptop yet but baby steps. These are not my biggest goals I am manifesting by any means. My point to this is to show that the little things count too. Bringing the little things into my life helps me stay motivated and positive about what I want in life and helps me see progress and not to get disappointed by feeling like it is never going to happen. We often give up or feel defeated when we don't see our dreams coming true. My overall dream is to have a successful business that supports me and my family fully. The daydream is what makes it feel real now. When we daydream or manifest we see it in our mind and we feel good. Everyone has their own vision. I like to vision myself as already being successful and what my life would be like then. The little details along that vision is what I am bringing to life. I have 4 things now and soon to be 5 from that vision that are now real. They are in my life now. This makes me feel wonderful to see that and it also makes me more optimistic about my goals. I feel more like that my dream can and will become a reality.
If the big dream seems to far away from you. Take time out to sit and vision what your life would be like once you achieve that goal. Feel how happy you are, visualize the details of your life and start picking small things from those details out and try to bring those into reality. You will feel more motivated when you do.
