You Gotta Faith It Till You Make It

If you’ve coached with me before or have been in one of my courses, you’ll no doubt be familiar with this question.

The reason I’ve got so much love for it (Hubba Hubba!) is that, it’s such an easy way to get yourself into that sweet spot where you actually believe in and expect your desires to manifest.

And as any deliberate creator knows, life unfolds according to what we believe and expect to happen. Not what we want or wish to happen, but what we expect to happen.

Yet, even knowing this, many of us are skilled and practiced at entertaining thoughts that create doubt and reinforce beliefs that contradict our desires.

We are fluent in every reason under the sun why we can’t get a better job (tough economy), or be in a loving relationship (all the good guys are taken), or have a healthier body (old age) – and well, that’s gonna be Kryptonite to getting what we want!

But with this one question, you can swiftly dissolve doubts and stack the odds in your favour.

 That question is:

"Why do I believe I can have this?"

Whatever ideal or achievement you are working towards, you have to give yourself a reason to believe that you can have it! That will help usher it in.

Maybe you believe:

  • You can have a loving and nurturing relationship because you are a high-value man (or woman): you are smart, confident, authentic, and charismatic. And your ideal mate will see all of this, and will adore and respect you for it. They’ll want to commit to you - not out of need, but because they want to.

  • You can build a profitable business because the world-over there are people looking for a product or service just like yours to enhance their lives. And when they find you, they’ll know you are worth every single penny of your fee and will jump at the chance to work with you.
  • Sure, there may be many other professionals who are just as skilled and experienced as you are, but no one does the job like you. No one has your unique perspective, charm and personality – and the right employer is going to value all of you and be eager to hire you for your dream job.

So, why do you believe you can have what you want?

As you find answers to that question, you are opening your imagination to greater possibilities and claiming your desire.

You are literally creating new neural pathways and training your brain to believe in your ability to manifest your desire – and that cues the Universe to send it your way.

Yes, it may take practice and patience to find answers to that question, but it’ll be totally worth it:

  • Nourishing your goals with faith and expectation is one of the most delightful feelings. It will empower you to put your whole heart in your endeavour. And as far as self-fulfilling prophecies go (well, that’s what beliefs are), wouldn’t you rather one that delights you?

What this question is NOT:

  • This question is not an opportunity to plead or justify. You are not comparing. You are not saying you deserve the spoils at the end of the pillage because you worked the darn hardest or fastest. You are simply staking your claim on your desire because you are worth it and you CAN have it.

This is your official invitation to try it out for yourself. Pick a goal, ideal, dream or ambition and ask yourself: "Why do I believe I can have this?"

Give yourself at least a few reasons to believe you can have what you want, and tell me how that feels? Hopeful, right?

The more you engage that question, the quicker you'll find yourself moving closer to that relaxed feeling of trust and anticipation that your goal is attainable - and when you do, you are you going to hit a home run:

You are going to be frolicking in the ocean with the love of your life; or choosing the furnishings for your dream home; or scheduling appointments with your new clients. (And I want to hear all about it... so keep me in the loop).

That question again:

"Why do I believe I can have this?"

Here's to unleashing the magic of believing!

Top 3 Tips to Manifest a Miracle

You’ve watched The Secret; conjured a feather, found a penny, and manifested rock star parking.

You're confident you’ve got a hang of the law of attraction: focus on what you want, believe that you can have it, and let it in. EASY!

(Isn't it wonderful when everything falls into place like that? What a great feeling!)

You are now ready for the big league, and you turn your attention to realising your dream job, or getting a new mate, or fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning your own business.

Then the magic disappears; “POOF!” Just like that, your ability to part the Red Sea deserts you when you need it most. You try this visualisation technique. Chant that mantra. Buy a different meditation  and still, nothing happens!

Yet, you remain hopeful and persist. Because there is much joy and empowerment in knowing that you are responsible for creating your own life. It means you have the power to change things and experience miracles.

Here are three tips to help you out of the funk, so you can manifest a miracle.

1. Watch your language:

Your thoughts and words are truly your prophecy; with each word you speak, you either breathe life into your goal or deny its fulfilment.

You just can’t ask for a job you love then go around complaining about your current one. Each time you passionately contribute to a conversation about how difficult it is to succeed in business you are only delaying your progress.

Speak words that reflect those spoken by someone who is successful; words that exemplify what you want to achieve and experience in your life.

If you want business success, ask yourself, “What would someone who has a thriving business with lots of clients be thinking? What would they be saying?” Then think it. And speak it.

As you repeat positive success affirming words, they will replace negative thoughts and patterns in the subconscious that have blocked your success, and align your energy and beliefs with success.

Do this with all your desired good.

2. Release the how:

We tend to have preconceived ideas about how our desired outcomes should manifest. We attach a particular way, time or sequence to the unfolding of our dream. But what you’ve asked for can show up in different ways than you’d imagined. You don’t have to know the ‘how’ – but you have to be willing to put your trust into something other than your own limited mind and resources.

Your job is to plant the seed of your desired outcome very firmly in your mind, and nurture it with positive thought and expectation. Then turn it over to the creative forces of the Universe to orchestrate its perfect completion. You can then relax and let go, knowing your manifestation is on its way.

A fun game is to think of different ways your desire could unfold. Get creative and outrageous – this will help you surrender the ‘how’ to the Universe. When you do this, it will take form in the most unexpected, delightful and miraculous way.

3. Give thanks in advance:

If you want your desires to come quickly, start expressing gratitude for them now as if they were already here. Being grateful in advance is the ultimate show of trust. It is what creates magic, and moves ‘wants’ and ‘wishes’ into the realm of manifest reality.

Even before you receive your dream job, be grateful now that someone, somewhere is looking for a person just like you.

Before you thrive in your new business, give thanks for the appreciative clients who are on their way.

Be grateful for the loving and loyal friends, well before they meet you and appreciate your charm and wit.

Give gratitude in advance and watch as miracles happen around you.

How To Speed Up Manifestations

This is a common question I get asked by readers and clients: how long is it going to take to get what I want?

My own personal experiences have proven that things can come to fruition at what seems like the speed of light.

Like the morning I playfully visualized receiving a thousand dollars of fun money, and within a couple of hours was gifted $500 cash for Christmas.

On the other hand, I’ve had manifestations that took time – weeks, even months, – because there was a waiting period, a gestation if you will, during which all the elements required for the fulfilment of my desire were being brought together.

It’s easy to dismiss this waiting period and assume that things are not happening, when in fact all the right resources, people, and opportunities are lining up behind the scenes to deliver your heart’s desires.

Some manifestations on the other hand have taken years and I can honestly say that was because I hadn’t yet created the internal alignment with my goal. I was full of doubt and second guessing myself and my ability to create what I wanted. But the minute I shifted my mindset, the Universe responded. FAST!

A case in point: I spent years trying unsuccessfully to attract a better job, until in sheer exhaustion I stopped looking and instead started applying prosperity principles. Then out of the blue, I was headhunted for my dream job – within weeks!

So if you've been trying to manifest something new for yourself and it hasn't showed up yet, what can you do to speed up its manifestation?

What I’ve learned from my own experiences as well as working with many others is that the time to physical manifestation depends on several factors:

1. Decide it's happening

The dominant factor in manifesting anything is our belief that it can happen. Whether it’s a vacation in the tropics or selling your artwork – first up you have to know that it’s possible for you to have this. But don't stop there; go a step further and make a firm decision that it’s happening.

You have to stake your claim on your good and give your whole energy to the idea of its fulfilment, no matter what the outer appearances, circumstances and opinions of others. ("Good" meaning success, money, jobs, clients, health, happiness, relationships, anything you desire). Making that decision and standing by your choice will strengthen your belief and make you receptive to your good.

And if you are worried that you are being selfish for wanting your desire, don’t! The villagers aren’t going to come after you with pitchforks; the whole Universe thrives on your success and prosperity! But you are the only one that can give yourself permission to have it.

2. Accept it as a Done Deal

Once you’ve decided on what you want to manifest and experience, your job is to teach your consciousness to accept it as an existing reality in the present moment; to accept it as a done deal in the here and now! This is the quickest way to compress time and speed up the manifestation of your goal.

In the example of my dream job, I held a vision of myself in my desired job. I saw myself being wooded by prospective employers. I saw myself enjoying the company of my new colleagues. I saw myself adding value to my new clients and receiving fabulous feedback for my contribution. My thoughts and feelings became completely filled with the vision of my prayer answered, until I was a full match to it; in my mind I already had that job. All I had to do was hold onto the vision of my wish fulfilled and make peace with the perfect timing of its outer manifestation – which as it turned out was a short wait!

Whatever you can do to create that internal alignment with your goal visualisation, acting as if, scripting, affirmations, etc. until it takes on the tones of reality. And you’ll know when you get to that stage because you'll feel confident and relaxed about it. There won't be any impatience. You won't be asking me "how soon" or "how fast" because you’ll be living it in your mental state. Your frame of mind will be one of joyful anticipation.

3. Prepare and Expect to Receive

You’ve asked for what you want and you meant it. You are filling your mind with thoughts of your desire fulfilled. Now you have to step out in faith and prepare for its arrival. The act of preparing for what you have asked for is a strong signal to the Universe that you believe in it and are ready for it.

That's what happens when you expect something to happen, right? You prepare for it:

  • If you are in the process of manifesting a healing practice you may feel prompted to create space for a consultation room in your home in readiness for your clients, who are on the way if you hold the faith.
  • If you are manifesting a new job you may feel inspired to do mock up interviews – before you even hand in any job applications. Or you may even want to clear out your desk and old emails in readiness for your departure.

I'm not prescribing these specific actions, just giving examples - you'll know what actions to take. And if you are not sure, ask for guidance and follow the intuitive nudge from within. You’ll know you are on the right track if it feels good when you take that action,  whatever it is.

Don’t be afraid if you are called to do nothing. Sometimes that’s the way the cookie crumbles: no action is required on your part. If you are taking action in an effort to force things to happen, that’s going to hold the party up because it’s reinforcing that you “don’t have it yet.”

So to allow for speedy manifestations, bring these elements into play:

  • You have to ask for what you want and mean it.
  • The more you believe and expect it to happen, the faster it manifests.
  • The more your attention and actions are directed towards 'having' it, the stronger your faith and expectation of receiving it.

Change really can happen in the twinkling of an eye.

Here's to wishing you speedy and perfectly timed manifestations.

Love Loago
