Manifesting Dreams – Takes Balls

For decades now we have talked about Creating your Life, Creating Your Reality, The Art of Manifestation. This mystical liminal space between conscious and subconscious, where dreams and desires swirl in the ethereal realm, waiting to be brought to life.

The magic is not in the waiting – it’s in the level of intention, commitment, and how courageous we are willing to be to keep that commitment above all else.

It’s easy to have the dream – but committing to bringing it to life? That takes balls.

The magic is to believe fully, to take all the necessary action steps and cross the finish line, rather than leaving it in the pile of unfinished things.

People who bring their dreams to life have no doubt had to face some fears and resistance. They’ve had to let go of things that were once meaningful to them, and had to sacrifice aspects of their life to make space for this dream.

People who seem to manifest their dream life don’t just wait for a sign.

The real magic is not in waiting for the time to be right – it is in this level of courage and commitment, and then in the surrender.

Surrender to trust and faith – know that it is done.

Again – this takes balls, it’s audacious.

With this surrender comes heaps of resistance.

And the, space. Freeing up the head space of ‘how’, allows us to become open to see the signs – and then take the action step in that direction.

The Dreaming Phase

Everything starts with a thought, an idea, a dream. Within the depths of our dreams lies the seed of possibility, which needs to be nurtured and cultivated.

The journey begins with a vision – in my case this episode began with a vision of green fields, rustling trees, and the sweet melody of birdsong. Having spent many months travelling I knew I needed it.

So I got clear on what I wanted, a clear vision. A day dream of all the things I want to see and feel.

We close our eyes and immerse ourselves in this tapestry of imagination, allowing our senses to dance internally. The sense of playful daydreamy imagination that we used to love so much as a child – when and why did we stop using these muscles?

Do we think it’s childish, silly or frivolous to be daydreaming and imagining?

Because actually, it’s not. It is essential if we are to exercise both left and right sides of our brain. The brain is not only for logic – in fact, a vast amount of the brain is nothing to do with logic at all.

The power of the subconscious mind is something we have direct access to, if we commit to practice it daily.

There are many tools we can use to help us tap into this under used and under rated part of our marvellous mind.

The Power of Journaling

A very simple daily practice I use and advocate.

With pen in hand, we are uniting our subconscious thoughts and dreams, with a three dimensional reality and daily life. As we embark on a journey of self-enquiry and exploration and write down our dreams, our desires, our deepest longings, we are infusing each word with intention and purpose.

As we journal, we engage not just our hands, but our minds and hearts – a simple practice that aligns mind,body and soul. It brings the dream into a page that the eyes can now see, and the brain can associate with a tangible object.

In this instance I visualise the fields, the trees, the birdsong, and ask myself:

How does it sound?

How does it look?

How does it feel?

Knowing and feeling how it feels, and how I want it to feel – emotionally invests us in our dream and we bring it a step closer to becoming ‘real’ in this dimension.

I reflect and write all of the things that I have in my life right now that align to those feelings.

From Dreaming to Doing

So dreaming is lovely, but simply having dream is not exactly bringing it into the day.

We must bridge the gap between imagination and reality, between desire and action. And so, it’s time to invite curiosity and potential. Our writing shifts from mere fantasy to curious inquiry – if I dream about this, what if it could actually happen?

With clarity of purpose and absolute determination, we set our intention to bring our dreams to life, one small step at a time.

It is essential at this stage that we cultivate gratitude for the blessings already present in our lives. That we get into how it feels, to be grateful and abundant – right now.

At the end of each day, I remind myself of these things.

I reflect on my current habits.

I set my intention to add one small thing every day (stack the habits).

I schedule a specific time block in my diary.

I do the thing. It might just be one small thing (check out Atomic Habits by James Clear).

I fill my heart with gratitude for gracing myself with being a step closer to my dream.

Gratitude stacking.

I repeat the process.

If at any time it feels off, I vision again. It's all a fractal process. It takes time, dedication a daily practice. Otherwise it wouldn't be a habit.

We can choose to nurture great habits.

The Role of Self-Awareness

All of this is a practice in self awareness. How I behave, respond, move through the world. How I identify with myself and others. How I want to identify, how attached am I, how healthy is this, what is my intention here?

The self enquiry is a constant and consistent process.

Note – this is self enquiry, not self deprecation. It’s not about listening to a constant internal critic. It’s about gently listening inwardly and making subtle shifts.

As a result of all this self enquiry, we journey deeper into the realm of manifestation, and we encounter moments of discomfort and uncertainty. We may feel distracted, rushed, or pressured by external expectations. But in these moments, we can self regulate, turn inward, tapping into the infinite resource of self-awareness and self parenting that resides within us.

We begin to flex the muscle more and acknowledge our emotions – frustration, sadness, pain – and we allow ourselves the space to experience them fully. It is in this discomfort that our greatest lessons are found, and it is through self-soothing and self-parenting that we navigate the turbulent waters of life with grace and resilience.

It also creates the space for us to gain clarity on our desire and direction.

Commitment: The Key to Transformation

At the heart of manifestation lies the unwavering commitment to our dreams and desires. We understand that every day may not be a winner, that obstacles may arise, and distractions are going to come along. But through it all, we remain steadfast in our dedication to the journey.

We commit to ourselves, to our personal growth as we deepen our self-enquiry and expand our self-awareness.

Then we seemingly magically witness the profound transformation that occurs within and without. Those around us feel it too.

We are the main character of the show – and the writer.

We are the architects of our reality, the sculptors of our destiny. In the world of self enquiry, we believe we are the observer and the observed. The subject and the object. The lover and the beloved. We are a walking paradox and that’s a miracle in itself.

Through the power of intention, commitment, and self-awareness, we shape the world around us and create the life we've always dreamed of living.

This means we get to choose, we get to act courageously, and to trust that the possibilities are endless, and the magic is infinite.
