I have been very blessed in having a wonderful relationship with my daughter. She was raised with Universal Laws and success principles and has created her dream life. Watching her manifest, each desire taught me that anything is possible for all of us.

Have you ever had a dream that you felt might be impossible? Has someone ever come into your life and reminded you anything is possible? This is a step by step guide to help you remember that any dream that’s been placed in your heart was placed there for you to accomplish.

The Universe has no limits and neither should our minds

My daughter’s 19 years old and living in Los Angeles in a beautiful apartment and going to her dream school. I still remember the day she told me all of this was going to happen. She was 12 years old and came in my room with her computer to show me where she was going to live when she graduated from High School. She printed out pictures of the apartment she would live in, friends she would meet, the car she would drive and the school she would be attending. She put it all together on a vision board. As I listened to her I couldn’t help but hear my own mother’s limiting beliefs coming out of my mouth. I said “that is a pretty big dream and I hope it will come true. It is a very expensive school, but we can apply for financial aid and hopefully it will all happen.” I will never forget what she said. “Mom, Thoughts become Things and I am going to manifest everything on that board with the help of the Universe. I don’t need to know how, that is the Universe’s job. I just wanted to share with you where I will be going to school and that it’s a fashion and design school. I plan to have my own Eco-Friendly Fashion line when I grow up.” She left my room and I sat on my bed and thought about what she said. I decided to let go of my limiting beliefs and enlist in her dream without knowing how we would ever afford it. I was about to get a lesson I would never ever forget.

Imagination and visualization will get you anything you desire

If you can picture it in your mind, you can manifest it in the world. I know this is true and I still need a little help remembering it sometimes.

Karen & MarissaMy daughter Marissa would take five minutes each morning to visualize and imagine her life in Los Angeles. She would speak about it “as if” she had already been accepted to the school. Her teenage years were a little difficult. She got in trouble with a few kids that were experimenting with drugs and alcohol. I started to worry about her; she would console me and explained I needed to give her some space to grow. This was really hard for me, but I decided to visualize how I wanted things to be and not focus my energy on worrying what could happen.

Gratefully I am very spiritually connected and enlisted angels to watch over her. I pictured her making good choices and by her senior year in High School, she was over her experimenting, back on track for getting good grades and excited to move to Los Angeles. We still weren’t sure HOW we were going to afford it, but Marissa would say, “Trust that the Universe has my back. The money will show up.” She was working part-time at a local coffee shop and she was telling all her customers about her vision and dreams. She would act “as if” the money was going to show up anytime.

The Universe will conspire to bring you all you desire

Marissa continued going to school and to work every day. It was getting close to graduation day and I was trying to be supportive when I said “if it doesn’t work out this year, you are so young there will be another chance.” Marissa corrected me and asked me to please not say negative words about her experience. She had clearly stated what she desired and the Universe would bring all the players and all that she needed.

I agreed and decided to hold the vision with her and each day we would play a game of wouldn’t it be great if. She would talk about what she wanted to happen and we had so much joy letting our imagination run wild.

One day at her work a customer who’d heard about her dreams shared that he has a very successful business and that he was really impressed with her positive attitude. He offered to pay for her entire schooling and not only that, he would help her with her living expenses too. Marissa came home excited and told me her great news. She moved to LA to the exact apartment building she posted on her vision board when she was twelve. She is now living her dream life and tells me often how grateful she is that I raised her with the Laws of The Universe.

I am so inspired by my daughter. She’s taught me a lot about staying positive and believing in myself.

I can see I still have some scarcity beliefs that I am working through and feel so grateful for the reminders and support from my daughter. Letting go of limiting beliefs will change our world. Everyone deserves to have their dream come true and I do believe it is possible.

How to manifest your dreams

Step 1 – Clearly state what you want in writing or share with someone you trust.

Think about how great it will feel to have what you desire. Imagine your life is already exactly the way you want it to be. Grab a paper and pen and write down exactly how you would feel to have accomplished what you want. Enjoy the feeling and let your imagination run wild. Think wouldn’t it be great if…… you fill in the blanks.

Step 2 – Visualize what you want and act “as if” it has already happened.

Be Grateful. What does an ideal day look like for you? Journal about what you are envisioning and make it really clear. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between a real or imagined experience, so use all your senses and your imagination. Have fun with this and enjoy playing like you did when you were a child. Be sure to write down how you are feeling.

Step 3 – Trust and surrender.

Now that you know what you want, it’s time to believe it’s on the way. This is the Law of Attraction, a universal law just like gravity. Allow your vision to come true and let go of the worry you have about how it will happen. That is the Universe’s job, your job is the first two steps.

If your mind focuses on negative things, the Law of Attraction will give you negative things. And with the Law of Attraction, negative outcomes will repeatedly arrive on your doorstep if the conditions are just right (i.e. if you keep thinking of negative things). In short – negation is not an effective way of tapping into the power of the Law of Attraction. Where focus goes, energy flows, so stay focused on the positive outcome you desire to create and let all negative thoughts disappear.

We wish you every success in manifesting your dreams. What will you do to create your dream life?
