Have you ever thought about what you really want in your life? And I don't just mean happiness or world peace? What do you want for YOU? What are your dreams? Many people when asked this question don't really have a specific answer. How can you manifest your dreams if you don't truly know what they are?

10 Steps to manifesting your dreams:

  1. Dream Big. It doesn't matter if you think they are unrealistic right now. Just connect with your heart and write, ignoring the 'can'ts' and the 'how's.'
  2. Prioritize. Once you have you list, sit with each one and see what really makes your heart sing. Put them in an order that feels right for you. And then pick the first one.
  3. Visualize. Start a daily practice of sitting with your dream(s). See the big picture. What happens when you reach this dream? See it, feel it, embrace it like it is already happening.
  4. Imprint. Write a story about what your life is like when your dream is fulfilled. Write it in present tense as if your dream has already come to fruition. Start from the minute you wake up, to when you go to bed. If you don't like to write, draw it or collect images that represent what you see.
  5. Action. In order for our dreams to come true we need a plan of action. Write down steps on how to get there. Do not worry about all the how's--they are none of your business! You may not know all the steps right now, but once you start implementing them, other steps may organically happen.
  6. Goals. If you don't create a timeline for implementing your steps--your Action--they may never happen. Be realistic. If your finances aren't stable right now, it may not be good to just jump right in and let go of your current job. Baby steps might be the best approach. Just be open to the flow of your actions. and you never know what's going to happen!
  7. Ask for help. If you're not sure on how to do something, ask! Talk to your friends, family, coworkers or look online!
  8. Accountability. Tell people close to you what your dream is and your first step(s) to reach each. If you don't share with anyone you may not follow through. We are great at putting up our own roadblocks, and having people in your life hold you accountable may help you let go of excuses and doubts and keep you on the road to your dreams.
  9. Don't give up! You may fail the first time, there may be many bumps and turns in the road, but don't give up! Let go of whatever happens and stay on the path of your dreams.
  10. Stay Open! Don't hold on too tightly to the outcome. You never know what's going to happen on your journey. Taking steps toward your dream could open up so many possiblities!

Don't procrastinate! Take your first step today because tomorrow never comes, it's always today!
