What if you had a tool that gave you the kind of leverage that could move mountains and manifest miracles?
I had a new tool made recently that looked like Thor’s hammer and made me feel like I could do anything!
That’s when I realized it was a child’s toy compared to the powers we’ve all been gifted …
This is your invitation to engage your manifesting tools the way they were meant to be used. 🙂
Thought it might be fun for us to play with something new in our manifesting repertoire …
At least, it’s new to me. Maybe you’re already doing it.
But I’ve been thinking about how we can tell certain things about a person based on their handwriting.
For example, you probably don’t need a graphologist to tell you which person you’d rather go on a date with, right?
Or which candidate we’d prefer to hire for babysitting?
So, we can maybe glean a bit about someone based on their writing.
In fact, one graphologist said, “Your handwriting is the written externalization of the vibrant activity going on inside you.”
Sounds a lot like our vibration affects our handwriting.
And wouldn’t the opposite also be true? That our handwriting could affect our vibration?
Our handwriting doesn’t just reveal personal traits and characteristics – perhaps it can create them.
Here’s why I suspect that …
In graphology studies one of the suggested tips is to trace a subject’s handwriting in order to feel how they felt when they wrote it.
When you write like they write, you feel like they feel. Interesting, right?!
So if my writing can change how I feel (i.e. how I vibrate), that makes me want to sign my name like a rich person. Or a successful business owner. Or a happily-in-love-with-life person.
And yes, I think I’ve heard big loops mean abundance and generosity (or was it sexual appetite?), and supposedly there are other indicators for qualities of openness and such, but rather than study up on that, I realized there’s a more authentic answer to this …
Since our vibration is all that matters, I’m the one who best knows what my rich signature is. I’m the one who knows what my successful business owner signature is. I’m the one who can tell what my “in love with love” signoff looks like.
In fact, for those of you who keep traditional journals (as opposed to pray rain journals), you can probably look back on old entries and know what your state of mood was when you wrote it without even reading the words.
You know what your sad writing looks like; and you know what your exuberant entries are.
Because our feelings come through our writing.
So I want to sign my name like a wealthy person does. Like someone who runs an amazingly thriving and successful business does. Like a girl who is excited about another day in her fabulous life.
My regular signature right now looks a lot like my actual dominant vibration. It’s ambitious, intense, kind of pokey. You can hardly read it because I wrote it so fast. It’s “I don’t have time for this – I have things to do and people to see and worlds to conquer.”
But when I practice my rich signature, I find it’s looser, more relaxed, like someone is very comfortable with herself and took her time signing it. She’s not striving, she’s there.
And yours might be the exact opposite – maybe your success signature is all business – tight, concise, to the point.
(Here’s Richard Branson’s, just for fun.)
My point is that you probably know your success signature better than anyone else, and signing it can be yet another fun way to align with what you want.
As you find the vibration of what you want – even if it’s just by signing your name like the version of you who already has what she wants – Universe has to make it so.
In my entire history as a conscious creator I have never once felt inspired to create a vision board.
Blasphemy, I know.
Even muggle girlfriends get together on weekends for vision board parties, but I can’t be bothered.
I took a course once, from a local money coach, where we had to spend an hour cutting out pictures from magazines to go on our new vision boards, and it was my least favorite part of the course.
So you can imagine my surprise when I realized I actually have “vision boards” all over my house.
Not only do I have vision boards everywhere, but they’ve already manifested into real life.
Here’s how that happened …
Shortly after I got my first real job, I discovered an art store downtown that sold beautiful, amazing framed prints.
I’d never purchased art before, but I did that day.
It’s a scene with three deer on a snowy landscape looking directly at the viewer, and has been hanging on my wall in two different houses until I moved into my third house.
This framed print has a spot in the new house, but it also “happens” to be the exact view I have from several windows here. Just this week I looked out to see two deer on that exact snowy landscape looking right at me.
And it’s not the first thing on my wall to come to real life.
I’ve got a framed photograph of a red fox in the grass that’s been displayed ever since my first house, and at this new place it turns out there’s a red fox that lives in the grass meadow out back.
My office has a large reproduction of a beautiful painting from a Hudson River artist, which is exactly what our favorite hike at our new place looks like in the spring.
Last year I picked up a painting of gold money trees for the office as well, and had my best financial year ever that year.
One of my favorite pieces I’ve had since before I quit my job is a common print of a mountain goat making a big leap over a deep chasm. It’s designed to remind me that as a rising Capricorn I am also sure-footed in making big leaps into self-employment. That’s worked out real well, too. 🙂
Years ago my dad gave me a framed piece he had commissioned of two race horses – and from my new kitchen I watch the neighbor’s barrel racing horses in their pasture all day long.
I could do this all day in describing the pictures that began on my walls and then morphed into real life.
Which makes me realize I had vision boards all along.
The things we look at regularly come to life.
Which makes me wonder, what’s on your wall?
As a full time law of attraction coach for nearly 15 years, I’ve learned a lot about what factors lead to successful manifesting and what elements hold it up.
I can see the trouble spots that slow our progress, and can recognize when it’s smooth sailing.
In fact, I think I can predict your manifesting success based on four simple questions.
Those questions are listed below, but the value of this post isn’t the prediction.
It’s in identifying the factors that lead to success, and engaging them for your own manifesting benefit.
First take the quiz, then we’ll discuss …
Hold in mind what you want to manifest. Could be dropping ten pounds, doubling your income, finding the perfect dog to adopt, writing a best seller – whatever you want.
With that target in mind, answer each of the following four questions using a 1-10 scale as indicated for each question:
1. Are you happy?
I know we all have our moments, but in general overall, how happy are you?
Answer between 1-10, with 1 being ‘my life sucks’ and 10 being ‘life is ridiculously good.’
2. Does it seem believable?
Does your desire seem within reach, or is it a big stretch to believe in?
Answer between 1-10, with 1 being ‘extremely far-fetched’ and 10 being ‘easy peasy!’
3. How long have you wanted it?
Is this desire fresh and new, or are you frustrated from wanting it for so long?
Answer between 1-10, with 1 being ‘seems like forever’ and 10 being ‘this is fresh and fun.’
4. Is it important?
How big a deal is this manifestation to your well-being? Does it feel like life is over if this doesn’t happen, or are you creating this just for kicks?
Answer between 1-10, with 1 being ‘my well-being depends on it’ and 10 being ‘it’d be super cool, but nothing to lose sleep over.’
Next add up your scores from each question.
Once you’ve got your final tally, refer to the results below to find my prediction about the likelihood of your successful manifestation:
0-12 Oy. A vibrational intervention may be in order. We’re talking hard core vibe rehab. You are not on the path to effortless success. Time to redirect!
13-20 It’s do-able, but we’ve got work to do. I’ve seen miracles happen in worse cases, so don’t give up!
21-30 Mild tweaks will speed things up – but you’re on the right track! Yay!
31-40 You’re home free, my friend! Enjoy the journey – it’ll be here in no time!
And I hope you know to never take anything anyone says about your likelihood of success to heart! (Unless, of course, you got top scores. Then of course you can believe this prediction.)
But seriously, don’t let me or anyone else tell you what’s in store for you.
You’re a conscious creator! You call your own shots! Don’t forget it.
Okay, here’s why I posted this predictive quiz …
Not so you can let someone else look into their crystal ball and tell you whether it’ll happen or not, but so you can see the elements that work for you and against you.
Here’s what I mean, question by question:
If your overall life isn’t already mostly pleasant and easy to enjoy, that will hold up your progress. Feeling frustrated, sad, resentful, etc. makes you a vibrational match to more things that feel like that. So good news comes from feeling good first. Make a point of engaging an appreciation practice or developing eyes for what’s going right, and you’ll stack the manifesting deck in your favor!
When your desire seems like a long shot, your low belief sabotages easy success. You can learn to believe that what you want is possible, the same way you learned to believe everything else – practicing new thoughts.
If you’ve been working on this desire for a long time, it can be hard to think about it without activating the absence or the longing of it. Practicing the vibrations of satisfaction and fulfillment can help further this one along. So can loosening your grip on reality.
Lastly, when it seems really important that this thing happen because life can’t be good without it, that attachment messes up your vibration. Remind yourself regularly that life is already good anyway, and that you’ll be fine with or without this. There are plenty of other places to play and ways to enjoy life! This thing you’ve got in mind is not the be-all end-all of your ultimate happiness. (Repeat as necessary!)
Hope you got some insight from this just-for-fun quiz. Don’t take me or anything else too seriously.
Like dad says, we’re here for a good time, not a long time. 😉
Here’s an easy way to have what you want:
Speak it so in the form of an “I Am” declaration.
That’s all it takes to offer the vibrational instruction that changes the course of events.
It’s what I’ve been using when I notice things are not going how I prefer them to go, and thus my attention is on things not going my way, which makes me a co-creator to the very outcome I don’t want.
But by declaring, “Wait a minute. I am having what I want!” – speaking those words (even in the midst of the contrary thing) and feeling what they represent, means I am no longer a match to things going wrong.
Instead I am a match for things working out.
I’ve been playing with this little spell in a variety of ways the last couple months, and find the “bossiness” of it rather satisfying.
“I am having what I want.”
Like I’m a diva or a princess who is used to getting what she wants.
I say it when the fork is stuck in the dishwasher and I’m frustrated it won’t come out. Sigh. And then I remember my new trick: “I am having what I want.”
I feel the energy turn. Just speaking the words dials me off of angst and onto relief.
I close the dishwasher because I’m done fooling around with this frustrating thing. I’m having what I want, after all. And as I close the dishwasher door, I hear the fork clatter free.
Just like that.
I say it when I can’t find a graphic designer for the next project on my plate, and I’m feeling stymied yet again by lack of support. “Wait a minute. That’s not me. I am having what I want!”
And in that moment I feel inspiration to play with the project anyway, doing whatever parts I can do myself right now, and very soon I realize holy crap, I don’t actually need a designer for this after all. Way to save $2k and 2 weeks, girlfriend!
A friend said it when she was fed up with bad dates online, and declared she was done with this routine. Instead she is having what she wants!
When her tinder date cancelled for the night, she curled up on the couch with microwaved popcorn for a Netflix binge (she loves both those things), and took a call that night from an old friend back in town wondering if she might be interested in getting together again.
That girl is definitely having what she wants, last time I heard!
Don’t dismiss this manifesting technique because it’s so simple … all the best manifesting methods are!
If you’ve played around with this spell, or something like it, we’d love to hear how it’s working for you in the comments. 🙂
