As Tony Robbins says, success is 20% strategy and 80% mindset. And yet we, as female entrepreneurs, have a tendency to over-invest in strategy and under-invest in mindset.
I’m not talking about investing just dollars here.
Let’s talk about your other resources: Time. Energy. Mental power. Awareness. How much of these resources are you investing in working on your ACTUAL mindset versus working on your launch strategy, your PR strategy, or – even worse – your mindset strategy.
Manifestation is not something you do for 10 minutes a day. It is not a 3-6-9 or 5-5-5 script. It is not a visualization practice you complete before bed. Manifestation involves your entire state of BEING. How do you react when someone cuts you off in traffic? That’s manifestation. What do you feel when you get a surprise bill in the mail? That’s manifestation. How do you treat the service provider who didn’t meet your expectations? That’s manifestation.
As you can see; manifestation has a lot more to do with character than it does with strategy or practices. It is about identity; your main state of operating on a day-to-day basis. Does this mean you have to be perfect in order to manifest more wealth, love, or health into your life? Certainly not! I’m sure we can all think of a few wealthy people who are less than angelic in their day-to-day lives. What’s the difference, then? What sets the manifestation mavens apart from those who achieve only haphazard results?
The key ingredient missing here is certainty. You are not manifesting effectively because you are not certain. You’re not certain of what you want; you’re not certain of your ability to achieve it; you’re not certain of your worthiness to achieve it.
How would you show up in your life right now if you knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that the things you were manifesting were EXACTLY the things you wanted? That they were guaranteed to show up in your reality in no time at all? How would you show up in your life right now if you were just as confident in the dream 10-bedroom home facing a vineyard overlooking the ocean as you were in the lipstick you ordered off Amazon yesterday?
Here’s the hard truth: oftentimes we tell ourselves we are certain, we are worthy, we are willing to do what it takes to achieve our goals when in reality, we know we are lying to ourselves. Our conscious mind might be on board, but the subconscious is throwing up red flag after red flag. We can’t manifest our dream lives dragging our subconscious mind and all our shadows along kicking and screaming. It simply doesn’t work that way!
Certainty comes along when we have ALL of our awareness onboard. You are certain your lipstick from Amazon will show up tomorrow. You are not certain that your dream of a yacht with a helicopter will arrive at all in your lifetime. And this is why, no matter how many techniques you try, this will never become a part of your reality.
What’s a high-vibe Dangerous Woman to do? Don’t worry, I’ve got you boo. After many years and hundreds of clients worth of study, here are the top three unexpected methods I’ve personally found are the MOST effective to shift you into a state of certainty.
- Clean up your environment. And I mean – all of it. People, places, and things have incredible influence on the way we show up in the world and the version of ourselves that we are on a daily basis. Friends that are overly negative or cynical, that TV show that makes you question humanity, and even that orange pillow your ex gave you can all bring you down. It’s time for a purge. Anything (you read that right – ANYTHING) that doesn’t call you into the highest version of yourself absolutely has to go.
- Let go of the learned ideas of what “spiritual” or “success” looks like. There’s a trend going around over the last decade of what it means to be a spiritual woman, what a spiritual woman “should” look like, and what a spiritual woman should do, eat, say, and believe. This is all bullshit – do not fall for it. There is no external archetype for spirituality. There is only an inner experience, which will express itself in a multitude of ways unique to you. The more you tap into your spirituality, the more you will trust in your manifestation abilities. It is an unfortunate situation we find ourselves in where we believe that in order to be spiritual we must live in a conscious community, push away social media, hate money, and eat vegan enchiladas while watching the sunset every evening. Bonus points if everything you wear is eco-friendly “slow fashion” and you’re in at least three polyamorous relationships. This is NOT spirituality, this is virtue signaling, and it will not get you towards your goals. Commit yourself to finding YOUR unique version and expression of spirituality, and follow that over everything else.
- Write a magazine feature article about yourself. Who are you going to be when you’ve achieved everything you desire? The impact, the accolades, the awards, the homes, the businesses, the disruption? When you’re looking back and you think “wow, I really made and did it ALL! And it was so much more beautiful than I ever thought it could be” – who is that person? What would a magazine interview with that person sound like? Write this article for yourself, from this space of having received it ALL. All the big hairy stuff. All the overwhelming stuff. All the expansive stuff. Don’t worry about the dates, simply write from the space of having already received all of it. What would that version of you say about her journey? What advice would that version of you have for your current self? Read this to yourself at least once a day.
These three manifestation hacks aren’t well known – in fact, they’re created from my own personal and student’s experience. And yet, they’re by far the three most powerful shifts I’ve found to move you into a state of certainty, where your manifestations appear on autopilot. Whether you’re manifesting your first $1,000 month or a multi-billion dollar empire; every dream you’ve ever had comes down to your certainty in order to achieve it.
