What do you want to create in 2018?

In my last blog, I shared with you a great practice I use to set up my intention for the New Year.

Now that you have your theme for 2018, I want to share with you one of my favorite tools to help you create what you want in 2018.

I’ve used this practice many times with success and most recently to manifest the apartment of my dreams, literally. I did not think it was possible (especially in the crazy competitive rental market of the San Francisco Bay Area) but it happened…

You may know that I live in a beautiful apartment with a breathtaking view on the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, with access to a hot tub and only a few minutes away to a beautiful trail in nature.

Here is the view from my patio.

and the hot tub.

and the trail.

Well, what you may not know is this did not happen by accident! I manifested it intentionally.

You may be skeptical about this “intentional manifesting thing”? I get it. I used to be. I am not anymore. And here is why….

In 2015-16, I spent some time clarifying my ideal home, the one I thought it would take 4 years to manifest.
I envisioned:
– a place with a view on the San Francisco Bay and on the Golden Gate Bridge
– from where I could admire the sunset on the Bay without having to walk at all
– with a hot tub I could go in everyday and admire the view on the Bay and the sunset
– within walking distance to nature and greenery
– where I could eat outside in the sun
and many more things.

I made drawings of my vision (following my mentors’ recommendation).

Haha. below are some of my rudimentary drawings…

I made a list of my vision.

I felt the gratitude for the place I was living in at the time.
I let go of the belief that it was impossible to find a place I like at a reasonable rent.
I did other practices to set the intention of my vision.
I took active steps and look for apartments to rent on Craigslist. I visited places.

and when I was ready to call it quit and make a decision on a less than 100% ideal place.

… this place showed up on Craigslist with, front and central, a picture of the sunset on the Bay.

I went and saw it, and I knew it was mine.
And guess what? In the very competitive Bay Area rental market, the landlords did not even met anybody else than me. We just clicked. This is what happened when this is the right thing.

So, what do you want to create in 2018? Are you clear about what it is? Don’t leave it to chance, be clear and proactive about it!

…and if what you want is a career you love, and you are not clear about it, stay tuned for a great offer coming your way soon to help you clarify the career you love and take steps towards it.

To you creating the life and work you want!
