Hey lovely! How’s your new year so far? I hope you’re loving it. Can we claim that 2020 is gonna be awesome?! I heard a yes!
Today I wanna tell you the story that made me passionate about teaching self-love and manifesting, because they are totally connected to each other.
Before I started my journey to self-love, I first discovered about manifesting.
I learned about manifesting when I was hanging out at a mall bookstore with my best friend, and we saw the book The Secret. It was around 2010, and we learned that it was about the introduction of the law of attraction. Literally after reading it, my life began to unfold (and I’m sure so many people experienced this too). It was so timely too, because literally just an hour before that, we just made an agreement that we will quit our depressing conversations and start doing things that will make us happy. Yes, the universe heard us. #synchronicities
Since reading the book that semester break, my life started to shift. Those 2 weeks were filled with random manifestations – travels, synchronicities, money coming our way – just really the universe showing us its magic. I called those 2 weeks “That Magical Sembreak”.
What’s weird is that after the sembreak, it eventually stopped. I suddenly woke up and I was back on my normal routine. And not only that – things got even worse. Later on, I would hit rock bottom that would last for 6 years.
During those years, I was completely lost. My life started falling apart and everything was a mess. It was total chaos. I have no freaking idea what to do. All those years, I was like, “What the hell universe? What do you want from me?”
What I’ll found out later on was that I need to learn so many things during those 6 years. It was a time for me to create change. And one of those changes that I had to make is to learn to love myself. And when I did, I start attracting beautiful things – my soulmate, the business I love, travels, healing from trauma, etc.
When I realized this, I started to wonder why self-love caused me to manifest my desires? Why is self-love and manifesting correlated?
Well, here’s what I found out.
In manifesting something, what you gotta do is to shift your vibration to match the level of the energy of your desires, so you can magnet them to you.
Now, those desires you have? They’re most probably high-vibrational. They are things that will bring you happiness, love, abundance and all these high-vibe emotions.
So what you need to do now is you gotta embody the person who is an energetic match to the reality that you want. So if your desires are high-vibrational, you have to match those high-vibes.
How are you gonna do that? How are you gonna raise your vibration? First, you need to know what affects your vibration. So many factors affect your vibration. There’s your mental state, emotional state, physical state, your environment, the vibration of people you surround yourself with, the media you intake and so much more.
Yes. Vibration is all that matters in manifesting your ideal reality.
And self-love is all about embodying love – the emotion with one of the highest vibration. It’s embodying worthiness of any reality you want. It’s about believing that you can have anything because you deeply believe that you are worthy. It’s about embodying your power and taking it back when you’ve been giving it away. It’s about practicing kindness and acceptance for yourself. It’s about setting boundaries with people who are bringing you down.
And when I started embodying these emotions, my energy shifted, and naturally, the universe responded.
Yes. That happened just by practicing self-love. That’s why self-love is important.
Now, the next time you set some goals and try to achieve it, I suggest that before you even begin to take action towards it, try to assess if your feeling of worthiness of having it is actually aligned to whatever it is you want. Because your assessment will determine the inner work that you need to do to be in alignment. You can do this!
