4 steps to manifest what you want in 2021

4 steps to manifest what you want in 2021

Last week, I went to the Ocean for some rejuvenation and rest.

As I was walking on the beach, my attention was caught by two women playing in the waves with a wetsuit on.

I had this thought: “wow that sounds fun. I wonder how that feels to go in the water in winter with a wetsuit on.”

I love playing in the Ocean and often wish the water was warm enough all year around to do so.

In the evening, I got this inkling to post on Facebook to ask about people’s experience with wetsuit in winter, and I added that ideally, I would like to try a wetsuit on before buying one to see how that feels.

Several Facebook friends commented on it with some great info. To my surprise, a friend who lives close by offered to lend me her wetsuit.

I messaged her right away and asked if I could borrow it the following day. We were not sure if it would fit me, but we decided to try.

The day after, I tried it on and it fitted me quite well.

I put it on and a couple of hours later, I was playing in the water with a wetsuit, like the women I saw only the day before.

I manifested the vision in only one day!

I even had the joy to swim close to dolphins and seals while in the water.

But the story does not end there…

In the evening, I felt compelled to tell my landlord about it. My landlord loves all kinds of water sports and adventures. I texted him about it without expecting or asking for anything, just for the fun of sharing and because I was called to do so. To my surprise, my landlord replied back that I could borrow his boogie board if I wanted.

So, a few days later, I was back in the Ocean with the wetsuit from my friend and the boogie board from my landlord.

Wow! I never expected that following the hints after seeing these two women in the water would lead me there! But it did.

And there is more to come and unfold from this.

🔷 After that, I got the inspiration of paddleboarding and kayaking with my landlord on the Bay. I texted my landlord and asked him about it. He said he would be happy to go kayaking with me on the Bay (he has two kayaks) and he can give me a guest pass to go paddleboarding in the Berkeley marina.
🔷 I’m also playing with the idea of going to other beaches to play in the water. and buying my own wetsuit.

I’m sure there is more that will unfold as I follow the hints and inspirations I receive. Some big visions for my work and life in 2021 are emerging from this experience. 

This is what happens when you follow your impulses, gut feelings, or intuition. It leads you to manifest things better than what you could have imagined. I see that over and over again for myself and for my clients. 

What does that mean for you?

Well, what I did is follow the exact same steps I recommend my clients to follow when they are in the phase of making their vision for their career and their life a reality. 

There are some of the steps I follow regularly to manifest what I want in my work and in my life.

Here are the 4 steps to manifest with ease:

1. Ensure you are in a state of openness and relaxation, rested, and present. Do whatever you need to be in that state. Go in nature, meditate, etc. whatever works for you. If your mind is busy or you feel scattered, tired, overwhelmed, or rushed, it won’t work.

2. Notice the things, activities, or people that catch your attention and interest. Stay with that interest. Be curious about it.

3. Follow the nudges, hints, or impulses you receive, however small and quiet they are and even if you doubt them or wonder why to follow them. Especially if you doubt them! Your mind will probably resist and bring you all kinds of “rational” reasons why you should not. Don’t listen to it. Just follow the nudge.

4. Take action on opportunities that arise. Don’t delay. Take the opportunity that presents itself in the moment and follow it.

What are YOU going to manifest in 2021?

I can’t wait to hear!


Your heart is your compass

Last week, my 102 year-old grandma who I love dearly passed away. I am French and all my family lives in France while I live in San Francisco, California. The funerals were to happen in the South West of France. I was faced with this dilemma: going or not going?

All the “rational” facts were in favor of me not going and it “made sense” for me NOT to go. Only six days earlier, I was back from a trip to France to see my grandma at the hospital. The trip to France is long –24 hours door to door–, tiring –9-hour time difference–, and expensive –at least 1,700 USD. Without even thinking I could have the choice to go or not to go, I had settled not to go. I was telling myself and others: “I just can’t go.” My head was ruling the show. It just didn’t “made sense” to go. Every time I was thinking about the funerals and imagining everyone being there except me, it was breaking my heart, but I was thinking I did NOT have the choice. It was just NOT possible for me to go.

Then, two days before the funerals, on Wednesday around 1pm PST, I was on the phone with my aunt. Since I “could” not go (or so I thought), I asked her to describe in details how the ceremony would unfold, so that I could at least “be there” in imagination. As she was describing one after another the details of the ceremony, I was feeling my heart breaking piece by piece, until I could not hold it any longer and I burst into tears. I let my tears come out and tell me what they had to say. My heart was totally broken at the thought of everybody going, except me. And the thought of me staying in San Francisco, in a foreign environment from my native country, without any family member around me to share my grief with became unbearable. My heart was talking and it was talking loud and clear. It wanted to go. Fifteen minutes into the call, suddenly, it became clear to me that I had to go and I wanted to. The voice of my heart was so loud and clear that I could not ignore it any longer. The interferences of my head and rational mind were all gone. The purity of my inner voice came out. My decision was made; I would go and I would assume the consequences of my choice. My desire was so clear that my schedule would have to be cleared to give space to it, whatever was on my schedule. My heart desire was a priority. I hanged up the phone and one hour later, my flight ticket for France was booked. At 7pm that day, I left home and at 9:45pm, I was on the plane for Paris. When your desire is clear, the decisions and actions unfold organically.

It was one of the best decision I have made. After I made it, I felt relieved, light, and happy. I could not stop smiling. My body was telling me that the decision was right. My head was saying it’s crazy, but my body was telling me this is what you have to do. and my heart wanted it. It is because I let my emotions come out and I listened to them that I could hear the true desire of my heart, through the chatter of my mind covering up my authentic inner voice. And I did not regret it. Once at the funerals, I knew that was where I had to be.

Your heart and body have wisdom that your mental does not. Listen to your heart. it knows best. Don’t let your rational mind rule what you truly desire, deep down.

Your heart is your compass. The more you listen to its authentic message, the more your life will be fulfilling, meaningful, and nourishing.
