7 Steps to Manifest Anything

I'm gonna level with ya - I may call myself a practicing witch, but I haven't had all that much time for any sort of "practicing" that isn't the rehearsing of a stressful work phone call. That being said, there are some things in my world that are going kind of topsy-turvy right now and so I'm calling up all the powers of the universe to help me manifest an optimal outcome.

While I don't remember exactly where I first came across this 7-step process, it is one that stuck with me that I keep coming back to:

1. Clarity - really flesh out what you want
2. Dump limiting beliefs and blocks
3. Ask the universe - but don't beg
4. Take action - daily steps to take
5. Acknowledge what you receive
6. Keep your mind positive
7. Repeat as needed....

And for good reason! These seven, simple steps work for just about anything you want to manifest in your life.

But let's use my situation as an example.

The boy and I had been talking about moving out of our slumlord rental since about the moment we really settled in and since our lease is up at the end of June, we had started looking for options - I was even considering renting a house or a duplex!

So step one was to really flesh out what I wanted in our future rental. There were a couple of things I was willing to compromise on (like switching back to coin-op laundry) and other things I was not (like needing a dishwasher and air-con in the unit). I wanted something that was closer to my workplace or at the very least in a nicer neighborhood than the one we'd accidentally holed up in.

I really thought we'd need two solid incomes to make anything like that work, but then suddenly the boy lost his job and I had to seriously reevaluate what I was capable of affording. So maybe a $1,200 a month duplex was out of the question. That didn't mean I couldn't find what I wanted in a standard apartment complex, right? So there's step two - dumping some of my mental blocks and letting go of limits.

The third step was probably the easiest for me, asking the universe for help. Sometimes that's as simple as breathing your desire to get some good hits before cracking open Craigslist or whispering a fervent prayer for available units before running a search on I didn't beg - no one likes a whiner. But simply letting the powers that be know that you're open to their energies can take quite a weight off your own shoulders.

But that does't mean you can give up! You still have to put the work in. For me, it was diligently scouring apartment openings near my workplace and cranking out phone calls to set up showings. We got quite a few set up and we went to see some of these units. None of that would have happened if I hadn't taken the necessary actions in response to my plea for help and whatever deities that were listening.

Step five is to acknowledge what you get out of the process. While none of the units we looked at where quite in our price range, time frame, or preferences, it was important to remind ourselves that now we were armed with way more knowledge about the rental process and availability in the area than we had been.

And yeah, three out of five showings were total busts - but staying positive is absolutely crucial at this stage. I could let myself get discouraged and just give up on finding anything good. I could just grumble and slack off and end up settling for something sub-par. But I choose not to. I'm choosing to look forward to the next showing tomorrow and keep my hopes up that this will be the one. I've got a good feeling about it anyways, and if that's not staying positive I don't know what is....

The last step - you can always go back up to the last step you left off on and try again. Or maybe you have to start over from scratch. But as you do, you'll get better and better at this manifesting thing. Because you'll have had the practice needed to really clarify what you want and how you want to get it and you'll know what works and what doesn't.

Magic or not, the confidence gained from employing this manifesting process is golden. 


  1. I've been reading a lot about this lately with different people offering different explanations for why it woks, but it seems that many successful people believe that it does...I hope you find the place you're looking for!

How I Fail At "Adulting" Even Though I'm 31!

Inspired by this post from Sian Katherine, I thought it would be really interesting to examine the ways in which I, a thirty-one year old human being, utterly fail at being an #adult. In recognizing that we all have different abilities based on our cognitive understandings, physical and mental health, and socio-economic privileges, keep in mind that this is all in good fun, based on my own personal experiences, and that there is no one true way to 'adult'.

1. I do not possess a driver's license. When many of my sixteen year old peers were out getting their permits and indulging in six hours of behind-the-wheel training, I was quaking with anxiety and pretty much putting it off entirely. I first got my learner's permit when I was 18 and even though I did some actual driving, never pursued getting my license.

I'm 31, and I've only recently acquired my learner's permit again after at least a decade of no driving.

2. I have never mastered the art of curling my ha…

Menhera and Yami Kawaii - So Cute I Could Die

Unless you're an avid follower of the more obscure fashion trends to creep out of Harajuku in the last two decades, you probably haven't heard of the fashion subculture movements that are challenging Japan's silent mental illness epidemic and suicide problem.

*Content Warning: Mentions of mental illness, self-harm, suicide, and other potentially triggering ideas. Read at your own risk.

Enter Menhera and Yami Kawaii.

According to the tumblr account fymenhera, menhera (メンヘラ) is a Japanese slang term derived from the English 'mental health' and sparked a whole underground fashion subculture often referred to as yami kawaii (病みかわいい) or "sick cute".

Refinery29 did a piece on this a while back, which you can find here or simply watch the video below:

Japan (and other parts of Asia) have long carried an intense and negative stigma towards mental illness. Those suffering from mental illness or other mental health problems had very little in the way of resources or…

~ The Deep Questions ~ Tag

So I pulled this questionnaire off tumblr from user fuckyeahsurveys. So let's dive deep into some of our personal feelings and beliefs on a variety of thought-inducing questions.

Deep Questions 1. What is more difficult for you, looking into someones eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someones eyes when they are telling you how they feel?Oh, this is a tricky one. Eye contact is painfully uncomfortable for me anyhow but I would have to say it's more difficult when someone is telling me their feelings. Being on the receiving end of something like that makes me feel kind of powerless and at their mercy. If it was the other way around, I'd have control of the conversation and would be more confident. I think.
2. Think of the last time you were REALLY angry. WHY were you angry? Do you still feel the same way?The last time I was really angry happened quite recently, actually. I was met with a barrage of insults and personal attacks late at night, many …
