Journaling Process for Manifestation | The Exact Process I Use To Manifest My Dream Life

It’s a brand new year, you’re walking into this year with some big goals, and you’re probably on fire right now with that desire to create new results this year. It’s the time of the year where collectively we get really excited about new year, new you, new goals, and here’s the thing: it’s not just enough to have that idea of new results. There’s a lot that goes into really turning that desire into real world results. So today I want to talk to you about what is manifestation? How do we manifest, and how can you really take this energy and this desire of the new year and turn it into reality, so December 31st of this year you are celebrating not just that idea of a “new year new you” but you’re really in the results of it.

Manifestation is simply “making manifest” or turning an idea into your reality. You don’t just want the idea of vibrant health, of maybe living at your ideal weight, you don’t just want to have that idea, but you really want that physical result, where you’re holding the result in your hand, you’re really in the experience.

So manifestation is really “how do I turn an idea into a result?” And here’s the thing: you are manifesting all the time. You are a creative being. You have manifested all of your results that you’re experiencing right now. And most people resist that idea! We don’t realize that we’re responsible for all of our results. We say, no, I didn’t manifest this, this is not what I wanted – I’m having these results because of my boss, my spouse, my income… I’m having these results because of… and we live in this “outside in” world where we think that our results that we’re experiencing, the manifestation of your results today, is because of some sort of outside influence. And I’m here to tell you today that that’s actually not the way manifestation works. You are a creative being, you are co-creating right now, and you are responsible for the results that you’re experiencing. This can be tough to hear, if we’re not in love with our results. So it’s much easier to look at the outside world and point fingers and blame, and think that it’s because of something else.

It can be hard to hear that, but here’s the thing: it can also be very empowering, when you wake up to this idea that life isn’t happening to me, life is happening with me, through me, and for me. When we start to wake up to this idea, it’s extremely empowering.

If I’m responsible for manifesting today’s results, guess what, I can also manifest new results. I can take conscious control of my life, and I can change it.

I hope that you’re feeling empowered and lit up by that idea you have the power to create a life that you absolutely love.

It's the time of the year where collectively we get really excited about new year, new you, new goals and here's the thing: it's not just enough to have that idea of new results. There's a lot that goes into really turning that desire into real world results.

Here’s the good news, there is a proven, repeatable, reliable system of manifestation that when we follow this system and we apply it into our life, we can manifest anything that we want. I host a powerful 3-day event where I unpack this proven repeatable reliable system of transformation, so I’m going to give you some tools today on how to start with manifestation. If you are truly wanting to create unprecedented results in your life this year, I highly encourage you to attend the upcoming event, Passion to Purpose Live, where I am going to teach you this exact formula, so that you can manifest an absolutely amazing life this year.

In the meantime, if you know that this is your year, you’re on fire with your desire, you know you are meant for more, here’s something you can begin today. I know you know you’re meant for more, because you’re reading this!

There’s a very simple practice that if you do it every single day, it’s going to support you in manifesting new results this year, and it’s a simple journaling process. Maybe you’re the person who you had a diary or a journal growing up and have now put that aside; maybe you currently have a journaling practice, but I want to take you through a process of journaling in a way to support you in manifesting new results.

This works because it requires us to create new habits. One of the ways that we create new results is with new habits and doing that new habit every single day helps to install new thinking patterns. It helps to install new awarenesses, new perceptions within ourself, and so when we journal every single day in a very specific way, it really helps us to take a more empowered position in our life, where life is no longer happening to us but life is happening with us, through us, and for us.

Today’s topic on YouTube

I have created a free journaling practice for you, so you can go ahead, download that link to start this journaling practice, but let’s go through it here to really set you up for success on this daily journal practice for manifestation. The way that we want to journal is starting with your vision. You have a new desire for 2024, and I have lots of videos on my YouTube channel around how to create a vision that works, so make sure that you go through those and create a clear vision.

There’s a way that we work with our vision in a very specific way that really helps speed up that manifestation process. So when you’re journaling, you want to start out with your goals or your vision, what is it that you’re creating, and to write that vision or those goals in the present tense. When you’re journaling, we start with the vision, the goals, shifting our thinking more from our current conditions, our current circumstances, into what it is that we’re creating. We start with that vision.

The second thing in that journaling that’s really important is what are you grateful for? Again, lots of videos on my Youtube channel around the power of gratitude. Gratitude is just such a transformational energy, and the more that we’re looking for all the blessings in our life, what we’re grateful for, we attract to us more things to be grateful for. It helps to set your mind and your attitude to one of gratitude. In that journaling practice every day, write down at least three, I would encourage you to lean into 10 things you’re grateful for, every day.

And the third piece in that journaling process is asking how am I showing up into my day today? Here’s where this is important. When we’re living a “life is happening to me” model, we decide if our day is a good day or a bad day based on other people, based on the influence of our conditions, is it raining, is it snowing, is it warm, is it cold, was the traffic light or heavy, were my kids cooperative, we’re allowing the outside world to determine how we’re showing up. Was I happy? Was I miserable? Was I disappointed? Was I stressed out? It’s this very reactionary day. In the journaling, when we’re saying “here’s who I’m being today…” you’re making an advanced decision that you’re going to show up into this day confident, joyful, playful, you decide. So pick one or two, maximum three qualities that you want to embody in your day, not waiting for your day to decide if this is a good day or a bad day. Make an advanced decision, what if this was one of my best days ever? And if I want to create that best day ever, who am I being?

The final step in this journaling process for manifestation is what action step am I taking today? It’s not enough to visualize and to have that desire for a new life, we’ve got to take action. And so as you’re in this state first thing in the morning, if you can journal first thing in the morning, that’s when it’s most powerful. What action step are you going to take in service of your dream today? Don’t get too tied into the idea that this has to be a great big bold move, sometimes that will be your action step. And sometimes it’s choosing a glass of water over a cup of coffee. Or parking a little bit further and walking. Or choosing to take the stairs, or sending that email, or booking that class. What’s a step? Just a little tiny baby step some days that I can take today in service of my dream.
