The 5 Steps To Manifestation

The Law of Attraction, also known as Law of the Universe is getting more and more popular. It’s a natural law such as gravitation. Everything around us is energy, even you. You can create your dream life and manifest whatever you are by changing your thoughts.

Maybe you aren’t completely clueless anymore when you hear the word “manifestation” or phrases like “like attracts like”.
But there’s also a lot of confusion and misconception.

That’s why I break it down into the basics and share with you the 5 (major) steps to manifestation.

The-5-Steps-To-Manifestation.jpg

 

#1 FOCUS

What do you (exactly) want? Get clear about your desires and describe them as detailed as possible. The easier it will be for the universe to deliver the right order to you.

It could be helpful to write down what you’re going to manifest on a piece of paper. Forget the “how”, think about your “what” and “why”.

A critical step is to dissociate yourself from society and negative, narrow-minded people, literally, everything that could lower your vibrational state. This is about you, your life and your wishes.

You must get rid of your negative, limiting beliefs first. Write them down and rewrite them in their positive contrary. The rest will follow…

 

#2 BOOST

This is the stage where you will get into the excitement. Imagine yourself already having accomplished your goal and having your desire. Start living like that in your mind.

Your thoughts are your most powerful tool. Thoughts create feelings & emotions, those create action, action creates your reality. It always starts with your thoughts.

Everything is energy, starting from the air you breathe to money, to all living creatures.
All things around us, and of course, the universe with all its planets, and yet undiscovered elements.

The higher your vibration, the more positive energy you radiate and the more positive things you’ll attract. On the contrary with the negative – with feelings such as shame, pain, hate, anger.

Do what puts you in a good mood, e.g. listen to (high vibe!) music, go outside, cook your favorite meal, play video games, call/meet a good friend – there are tons of possibilities.

 

#3 LET GO

Don’t get trapped in negative thoughts such as “I don’t have the resources or talents to…”.

It’s not about how your wish will come true. This is the universe’s job. Believe it’s already there.
Let go of everything which is holding you back, such as your past, your current circumstances, certain people, beliefs, whatever it might be. And of course, the exact expectation.

By detaching you also show the universe you're NOT in a state of lack. As lack only causes more lack and misery.
Be open to receive multiple opportunities. Sometimes the universe has something better than you could ever imagine provided for you.

 

#4 GRATITUDE

Be grateful it’s already there. Look around you, there are so many things to be grateful for.

It could be as simple as fresh, clean water, a message which makes you smile, all the animals & nature, and so much more.
Believe in the unseen.

Most people think they can be happy AFTER they get X, but it’s quite the opposite – you should be grateful for all your desires and choose happiness NOW, and then the magic begins.

The more gratitude you have, the more positive situations, circumstances, thoughts, people, etc., you will attract. As you bring to you what you are, not what you want.

 

#5 GO – TAKE ACTION

This is a point many people are missing. But mostly you can’t make your wishes come true by just sitting around, thinking positive and hoping it’ll eventually come to you.

It’s about taking inspiring action. You get this mood of going for something. A thought might pop up in your head, that you should do X. And the moment you’re going for it, you send the universe your “yes” to your desire.

Often you might be aware of feeling uncomfortable, having doubts, fear, but go for it anyway if your beliefs and trust are stronger. You’ll get what is meant to you. The right things will enter your life in divine timing.

Remember: Some things aren’t going to happen now despite following all these steps, because sometimes you must grow and change (for the better) as a person first. Give yourself time and patience. And most important, NEVER give up.

My Monthly Update - August

I like reading stories about the people behind a blog and get to know them better. So that’s why I thought I could do the same, where I’ll write an extra post every month.
Just sharing a lil summary at the end of each month. Today I share with you how my August was.

The first two weeks...

I started august with coming home to my mom as this summer semester break started. It’s always a 5 hours trip from Bremen to my hometown via train.
She picked me up from the train station - as mostly every time & I was glad to see her. We made a trip to Erfurt and had some quality time – just mom and me.

There was also a reunion with my best friends, who I know since I’m a smol bean.
I also made a trip to a friend from Dresden on my own. The last time I saw her was one year ago. So, it was time. Unfortunately, [she also struggles with her mental health][1] and has an eating disorder.
It was cool, we talked a lot and she showed me her city. But what I realized afterward, I automatically adjusted my eating habits to hers. Which resulted in eating less as I’m already on my way back on track to heal from the past months.

Healing & Recovering

I don’t have these typical ED thoughts, but I would lie if it would be easy to just eat more again. Alone the fact my hunger signals are a bit confused. I estimate my intake roughly to make sure I’m eating enough. Been there and now I can do this again.
You just can’t trust your body after a period of restriction, even if it was a few weeks or months this time. As long, as your body isn’t at its happy point, your hormones and overall health aren’t in balance. Your body itself is confused. Give it some time, lots of love, food, rest and patience and it’ll work out. Have trust and faith!
The time with her was a lesson to learn from and to focus on myself, other’s eating schedules have NOTHING to do with mine and I shouldn’t care at all! Same applies to you!

Week three and four...

Last week I finally handed in the homework I had to do with a group of my classmates. My friend (one of whom I worked with) and I were so relieved as this process was stressful. Gladly we don’t have to do such tasks once again.
She also visited me one week ago and stayed here for 3 days. We went together to my hometown’s annual festival called “Mühlhäuser Stadtkirmes”. People from all over Germany visit my little town just for this fest, which is funny.
Normally, I’m not into drinking, but during this time I make some excuses here and then. I don’t like parties, but it’s cool to meet people again who I only see once a year. There are always massive amounts of topics to talk about. And I love talking a blue streak, haha.

Unexpected family stuff...

Then, a few days ago something happened. My sister, 2 years younger than me, who is pregnant and unemployed, is now living in my mom’s apartment. After she broke up with her boyfriend. Who has the same qualifications as her... She also never took responsibility for her own life and lives of social welfare.
This is a very difficult situation for me as my mom isn’t understanding my problems, as my sister triggered parts of my eating disorder. She was the one, who preferred when I was little, and now I feel the same again.

My sister is hard to talk to. I often got the feeling she’s not having a clue what I’m talking about. And normally you can expect to have a good conversation with someone who is 21 years old.
I don’t want to complain, but my mom supports her fully. She now also doesn’t have to take responsibility at all, nor thinking about how she wants to make a living for her and her newborn.

I’m not going to put myself into danger and risk a relapse just because of her and since I sat together with my mom and her without a good result. My mom isn’t realizing what’s going on as she’s blinded by her feelings. My sister will always be her child and I see clearly.

I’ll decide something which is not easy, but crucial. I will try to get her into a mother-child facility, where she will get help from professionals. Maybe I risk driving a wedge between my mom and me.
Deep down I know this is the right step.
Not only for my future niece but to create her future in terms of education and earn money or even finding her purpose. To be on her own and which is most important to me, to take the heat off my mom.

How to deal with difficult family situations

1. Stand up for yourself and talk about what’s bothering you. If you keep things by yourself which are related to other people, you’ll only hurt yourself in the long run.

2. Create a little haven only for you. It could be a room where you just spend time with yourself. Remember, you’re the most important person in your life and therefore self-care is a huge part. Do things which make you feel better and automatically raise your vibration (more about spirituality & the law of attraction here). I love spending time in nature, doing yoga, reading, playing video games, among others.

3. Accept and seek help – if necessary. There are tons of professionals out there who love to help you, and in some cases, you can even remain anonymous – such as in helplines.

4. Love yourself. It’s like in a toxic romantic relationship. Give yourself the love and things, you believe you need of someone else. You are already complete.

I know (depending on your situation), you want to have any problem solved. But the thing is, you can’t save the world nor should you take full responsibility for other people’s problems.

Check out my “Let’s become independent” worksheet I’ve made for you!

 

 

Sometimes saving yourself means letting go – even family members. Especially if they’re either unhealthy for you. Then, just as some friends, who you don’t get along together anymore – they’re not meant for you and you’ll attract more people in your vibrational state.

Dating & Eating Disorders

At age 16 before [the spiral went down][1], I avoided relationships at all costs. I’ve heard the drama of my friends all the time, yet I was the one who they asked for advice.

I didn’t want to get dependent on someone and lose my freedom. I sure had some experiences with guys but nothing serious.

When I was trapped in anorexia, I lost all interest romantic relationships, dating, sex etc.

I was too busy destroying myself and wasn’t good or enough at all. And asked myself “who could ever like (someone like) me?”.

You see, I had non-existent self-confidence.

After being one year in recovery from my eating disorder and done with the first year of my apprenticeship training for a few months I met my first boyfriend or better said the first guy I trusted and ever showed my body.

I experienced the feeling of being in love for the first time, and from this moment on ED thoughts came up again.

I must stay skinny and perfect & be the perfect girlfriend, so no one could be in competition with me.

Everything about me needed to be perfect.

More or less, I barely made more progress and I eventually relapsed to stay skinny aka maintaining an unhealthy weight for my body.

But the butterflies in my stomach overlayed the feeling of weakness and being controlled by the demons in my head.

You see being in a state like this can be dangerous. Feeling happy but also lost at the same time.

In the first 2 years, he supported me & made sure I eat and said he’d love me no matter what size (tell this someone who measured her worth from her weight/body since years).

I was 21 around that time.

We were together for almost 4 years, yet in the present I know he sort of manipulated be.

I made myself completely dependent on him. So, he knew he could play with my feelings and use my weaknesses for his benefits. I often cried and took every fault on me?

He often went to parties, also with my friends because they got along well together while I stayed at home playing video games or taking care of his cat.

I didn’t see how toxic this relationship became and only realize this now being single.

Found out he cheated on me multiple times, but I always focused on the positive sides (good to use the law of attraction, hehe)

Now I’m here catching up what I’ve missed the last years. Living in another city on my own. But also set me under too much pressure which caused some lapses in the ED.

Where I’m currently recovering from & focusing on my dreams and goals. If you’re interested in a monthly recovery update, please let me know!

I don’t want you to experience something similar. Especially if you’re suffering from eating disorders too.

So, today I wanna share 4 tips if you’re dating someone but also making sure to protect your recovery.

DatingED.jpg

#1 Be transparent

Sure, it’s the last thing you want to talk about with someone who you’re interested in as you fear to push them away.

But let me tell one thing, the more serious your relationship gets the more open and honest you should be. Both sides.

If someone loves/likes you, they will understand and don’t define you.

It’s important to talk about your struggles and how insecure you are.

I would talk straight about fearing to gain weight and losing attraction as I want to be beautiful, not only for me but also for them. Or how you want to be healthy and enjoy every moment with them.

Having an ED and dating is possible, but you need to be honest with yourself and push yourself further.

#2 Talk about your triggers

Even people who seem healthy tend to have some unhealthy habits, like only eating in the evening.

Others aren’t a breakfast person. And as you tend to compare yourself with others, especially other's eating habits, this could be dangerous.

Tell them if something about them is triggering for you. It’s crucial to protect your recovery and focus on yourself and your health!

You’re in recovery and different standards are applying to you. (More about this here and here)

After a time they will understand you more and can help you. As everyone has different triggers and raw points.

#3 Do some "Non-ED" activities

Things like going to the cinema or on vacation can be scary. But those are parts of a normal, healthy life.

And since you don’t want to be defined by your struggles, it’s a great chance to tackle that.

What could be cooler than collecting memories with someone you love?

They can support you and you don’t have to do this alone.

Always ask yourself why to do you feel scared/other emotion. So, you can understand more and know the next time how to act more different and healthier.

Imagine yourself being recovered and being able to have a healthy relationship, not only with yourself but also with your partner? That’d be awesome, wouldn’t it?

#4 Put yourself first

Sure, you want to spend every minute with your new flame.

I think it’s important to spend time with yourself alone. This way you make sure, you don’t depend yourself too much on someone else.

Realize you’re the only one who can make you happy. Thinking otherwise isn’t healthy nor helpful.

It could even destroy a relationship. As your opponent don’t want to be reliable for your wellbeing.

Both of you still have their own lives.

You’re the most important person in your life. This isn’t selfish! You can only give love to others if you have more than enough for yourself.

Take this time to figure out what you love, maybe trying new hobbies or revive an old one.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to do something your passionate about while recovering.

Focus only on food and getting healthy physically isn’t the only thing, it’s one half. The other half is mental recovery.

Part of that is reconnecting with your true self. You spend months or even years making the eating disorder your personality while “losing yourself” (hint: you didn’t lose yourself, but it’ll take some time to figure out who you are).

I think this is the most crucial thing.

Now past recovery...

where I realized I can reach all my goals, I feel much more scared of my future (but my dreams are louder) than I feared weight gain, as I only have this one life and want to live it until the fullest.

So, I dare you to work through your feelings and fears, as they will lead you to your path.

Go where the fear is. It’s worth it, I promise!

How To Create and Launch Your Blog From Scratch

Writing is your passion and you think about starting a blog, but you don't know how and when? I was there too just a few weeks ago and know exactly how you've been feeling! Learn how to build and launch your blog in 1 month or less – just as I did! My Review of the Launch Your Blog Biz Course 2 by Create And Go This is my personal opinion and review of the Launch Your Blog Biz Course by Create And Go, which I purchased after I came to the idea to finally built my blog and begin my blogging adventure!

Here you will learn:

How did I start blogging?

I've been thinking about following my dreams and things I love for on and off for years. I've had a few thoughts about starting a blog a few weeks ago, and then – out of nowhere – a video of Alex & Lauren appeared, and I just clicked on it. They shocked me in a positive sense because they've started from scratch and went through hard times, which paid off. And they just seem real (and usually I'm a super skeptic), so I landed on their blog, where they had this article about "how to start a blog for beginners" and at the end, there was the chance to purchase the full course about this. Because I had ZERO ideas on how, when and where to start. I'm a fulltime student and I want to do something I love while studying, and why should I wait with this project before I graduate from university? I did a lot of research (and still do) before I committed to buying this course to make sure I won't find this information they give for free somewhere else. Which wasn't the case. There were lots of "gurus" to learn from to reach your goals faster, but they only seem to want your money. Alex and Lauren are different, they summarized all their experiences, tips and making sure you don't make the same mistakes as them at the beginning to save time (and money!) – they are real people, like you and me! Investing money in this course, and so in myself was the right decision, and the money was well spent because this course helped me to build my blog and launch it in less than a month as a complete newbie! Let's get started with the course review!

What is this course about?

The Launch your blog course will help you with exactly every step you need to do to build your blog.From choosing your niche and domain name, to design your blog and finally launch it. You don't need any HTML or other IT skills, it's for complete newbies (as me).The special thing is, it's based on personal experiences of Lauren & Alex because they were there where you might be right now too, sometimes completely lost without knowing what to do. They help you also not doing the same mistakes as them (and tell stories about that) and save time and money this way.

Who is this course for?

This course is for people who have the idea to start a blog or a website and don't know where to start. For people, who might be completely overwhelmed by the massive information you get when you read about this whole topic on the web. You have no idea what HTML or CSS is? No problem, me neither, Lauren & Alex will help you through this and they even recommend designs/templates which don't require any knowledge of that. It really is a step by step guide with everything you need in order to build a blog from scratch.

How long will this course take to complete?

This is very individual, as some people are free the whole or most of the day and others (like me) work or study fulltime. You can complete this course within a week but it can also take a month.It really depends on you and your daily schedule. But mostly it will take about 4 weeks to complete this course and launch your blog. 

What you will learn

  • Why you should blog and all the reasons why it's fun and profitable
  • Setting up your account and blog on WordPress
  • Creating your first blog posts
  • an Introduction to affiliate marketing
  • Setting up your personal E-Mail and Social Media
  • How to combine Social Media with your blog
  • Some bonus material
The great thing is the 30-day refund policy. It's risk-free, you can purchase it first, and if you don't like this course, you can get your full money back in a space of 30 days.

My likes and dislikes

I really like the way this course runs like a common thread through all these topics. The step-by-step guide, and the way it is build up. You watch a video or read a tutorial and then you know what you do and then move on with the next step.You feel the authenticity of Lauren & Alex since the beginning because they are real people who know what you're going through right now. They are someone who is down to earth and willing to share their mistakes so you don't have to make them. Many newbie bloggers search through google and YouTube for YEARS to find free sources, but this way you will most likely waste your time. With this course, you have anything compact you need. One thing I didn't like, this course it mostly for citizens of the U.S. and so are the products they recommend. Some of them are only able to be purchased with a credit card, and I haven't had one before and only got one for my blog. But this is worth it. And of course, the tax situation, they only talked about the American one (obviously, because they are Americans) which is different from country to country. But you can create an account anyway and use the tools, which are helpful and essential for building a successful blog.

My final words

This course changed my perspective and I just jumped into the blogging boat without thinking about it twice, now I created my blog and launched it a few weeks ago.It's a great thing to do next to my studies, and I'm looking forward to where my project will take me.This is an adventure with ups and downs, but at the end of the day, it will be so worth it and take me further towards my dreams.If I can create a blog, you can too!Are you super hyped and motivated? Then you can also buy their blogger bundle, where you have all their courses at once.I hope this was interesting and helpful.
