A Meditation to Help Manifest Your Deepest Dreams and Desires

Mindful awareness opens a person up to the power of intent. Have you ever meditated on love and then had the most loving day or week of your life? Or have you meditated on joy or peace and felt illuminated in the heart by this presence of joyous or peaceful energy in your center?

Not only does an affirmation-based practice balance a person’s state of being, but this form of meditation can also expand into a dynamic, and very real conversation between the inner world and the outer world. 

Feel Your Truth

There is a place deep in your gut that brews all kinds of enchanting fuel. This energy center guides you like music guides a dancer. Do you feel your insides churning? Take a moment to sit with this inner movement. Your gut feeling is very important to your destiny. Your gut can sense when you are tilting off course, or when you are as steady as the strong wind in a sail – sending you across the ocean of uncertainty with grace. The idea behind feeling your truth is a meditation on your present emotional state. Are you confidently chasing your dreams? Are you fearlessly in pursuit of your desires? If your emotions are out-of-whack, you may feel physically bloated in the gut, empty in the gut, or simply drained of creative energy. To begin manifesting one’s dreams and desires, a person must bow to both the Solar Plexus and Sacral – your belly and your gut. Pay attention to this place where the manifesting magic is baked and brewed.

Know Your Truth

Now that you feel your solar center radiating with life, the next step is to feel this energy reflecting back into the garden of your mind. The clouds have cleared and the sun is now shining. You are full of warmth, ready to take on the challenges of the day. This is the first leg of the manifestation marathon. Here, you are confident, proudly shimmering in all your glory – A masterpiece of creation. Knowing you are one of a kind, a servant to something beautiful that only you have the power to bring to life in this world is a very important revelation along the journey. This is the time to follow your bliss. Notice what feeds the connection between your mind’s eye and your solar center. Do you get lost in the words while reading about other cultures? Do you feel totally brimming with wonder when you travel? Maybe it is art, music, science, or health that gets your gears turning and sparks the fire in your belly. Whatever the thing is, I implore you to do the thing. Otherwise, you will be hiding from your truth in an illusion of the self. Know, deep in your gut, your purpose and let your intuition bloom.

Speak Your Truth

You are the lotus. You have risen up from the rich, dark mud and have formed in the delicious light of the sun. This is the climax of the hero’s journey. The place where you blossom – one with the universe. At last, seen by the world. At last, seeing the world. Your light body builds from gut, to heart, to head, until quite suddenly, a person bursts open and sings! Your throat chakra is throbbing with the impulse to send your song out into the wind. Begin to have a conversation with yourself, with the universe, and with those who you hold dear. Even social media is an outlet to speak your truth. Be clear. Be a force. You are a warrior and you are worthy of this power. Let the universe know what you want. Sing loudly, your dreams. Open yourself up to the infinite possibilities. Trust in the flow. Let spirit guide you day-by-day. You may start to notice some interesting synchronicities. Keep faith in yourself and let the world know you are alive.

Embody Your Truth

Now that you feel, know, and speak with the full force of your divine energy, it is time to walk the walk. With each step you take, your feet float higher into a state of total serenity. Things that no longer serve you are weights to shrug off your shoulders. As you embody your true self, your life becomes a brilliant constellation. Each glimmering star, a dream or desire on your map to nirvana. As you become your bliss, your distant star clusters align to tell the story of your destiny – one charmed with meaning.  Worlds begin to form. Time speeds up. Your passion and purpose unite to manifest a field of flowers, blooming on every world within the universe that is you. There will be ups and downs, highs and lows, but you will not be knocked from the seat of your peaceful soul so long as you stay true to your emotions, your intuition, and your voice of reason. If you ever falter, which is only human to do so, breathe. Breathe. Breathe. And let the stars guide you home.

As you can see, the best way to manifest your deepest dreams and desires is to be true to yourself. To be open to transformation, for this is the energy that will propel you toward your destiny.

Remember, all of nature is a mirror – You are a universe.

And you deserve bliss.

Everyday Ways to Balance the Chakras

There are various activities a person can do every day in the Western world to discover calm serenity.

Life is like standing on a balancing board: One does not achieve constant steadiness, for there are always waves of emotion to push us up and down, pull us this way and that. Our best option is to surf the spiral.

The seven sections below correlate to the seven chakras, or chi energy centers of the human body. Identical to the order in a mystical rainbow, the chakras are illustrated by ROYGBIV. Red is Root, Orange is Sacral, Yellow is Solar Plexus, Green is Heart, Blue is Throat, Indigo is Brow, and Violet is Crown.

Remind the Being to Be

When a mind is full, there is less space to appreciate the beautifully divine, perfectly whole, multi-dimensional Self. Some of the best ways to get grounded with Mother Earth are to breathe deeply (both inhaling fully and exhaling fully), output swirling thoughts into the void, and listen with intent to the beating of your heart.

Meditate. Go into nature. Cuddle a lover or an animal. Appreciate the little things like clean water, comfy bed sheets, and WiFi. You are exactly where you need to be and are moving at precisely the right speed. There is infinite wonder to discover right now in the complex simplicity of the human experience. You belong here, now. Breathe and think this mantra: I breathe, therefore I am.  

Mediate Actions and Reactions

An action can be as minute as the choice to carry an upright posture or as momentous as the decision to quit working a certain job. The next step in balancing the chakra alignment is to bring mindful awareness to the direction of your being. Are you regularly doing what you want to do? Does your path reflect your deepest desires?

Begin by paying attention to the way you give and receive energy. Watch the way you move. Break routine. Get a standing desk. Try new things. Empower yourself. Hit the gym. Go out with good friends. Most importantly, pay attention to the things that ignite your core. Do you dive deeper when something feels good? Do you step away when something feels bad? Forget what you think is right and do what you feel is right.

Practice Creative Transformation

The sun is the life-force energy of our solar system; the alchemist of organic transformation in all creatures. You are a humble seed born of the sun. You are renewable energy/infinite power alive to decorate the world with beauty. Like lovely flowers in the fields, the light of Self brings colour to one’s everyday life.

Embrace the starlight within you by making magic. Kindle your yang/masculine energy. Be honest with your feelings and express them openly. Explore your self and your relationship to all there is. Adventure into the unknown to discover unseen opportunities. Take up your favourite creative hobby — you know, the passion you put aside when you set out to become who you are. This can be anything from sculpting, to hip-hop dance, to drawing comics. Use your ingenuity to dance artistically upon this stage of stardust. 

Feel and Grow Love

When you decide to express your true feelings, you truly feel your Self. As discussed above, we are beings of love in the garden of the universe. We are entangled with nature. This Earth should overflow with talent, passion, and joy. There is no reason it cannot.

Grow your compassion and let go of your grief.Be at peace with your yin/feminine energy and let those tears fall. Volunteer locally. Imagine everyone is a mirror to enhance your empathy. Get outside. Eat whole, plant-based foods. Drink lots of water. Live fearlessly. Open your heart to someone new. Lie down with time and just get lost in a moment of Zen. Peace is the green of the trees, the smile of youth. You find it within you, no matter the time of day, where you are, or who you are with.

Speak From the Soul

There’s nothing like holding in your true feelings to give your heart a one-way ticket back to snooze-ville.  As the Buddha said so eloquently, “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” To live with integrity, honesty, and vulnerability is to liberate the spirit within the skin to become one with the wind.

You are a channel for the Universe to tell its divine story. Open your voice to sing your own version of the song of eternity. Keep your chin up. Communicate your thoughts and feelings openly. Write poetry, lyrics, music, a novel, a play, a short story. Discover for yourself the paradox that exists in storytelling — the good and bad of a heroic journey.  The voice of reason is a messenger of spiritual truth.

Manifest Dream and Desire

As the third eye awakens from its slumber in the soils of idyllic ignorance, a person comes to see reality in a startling new light. Like a volcano bursting open, enlightenment shakes a person to the core. The Zen proverb asserts: Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. One must remain grounded after the illusion of separation is revealed.

Accept the fact that we do not know everything. Question the world and the way things are. Daydream and space-out. Let go of doubt. Try lucid dreaming to better understand the limitless potential of the waking world. Practice tarot card reading to gain insight into the realm of the unconscious mind. Use your intuition and imagination every single day to make life more harmonious. Realize what you desire — big or small, near or far — can truly be attained with the law of attraction. Radiate good vibes.

Connect to the Cosmos

As illusions dissolve, we see we are not under the stars, but, in actuality, we are of and connected to all the stars. We rest at the center of the infinity loop. Space stretches out before us, matter spirals within us. And time moves it all. Now is the time to be here and expand your awareness in the present moment.

To balance this heightened state of being one might begin by practicing detachment from trivial issues. Release the past with a smile and embrace the future with some faith. Gaze into the night sky or into the ocean horizon, losing singular focus as you absorb the whole. Familiarize yourself with sacred geometry and the Fibonacci sequence. Uncover hidden patterns like galaxies in thumbprints and veins in plants. Watch less current news and read more ancient history. Try breathwork meditation. And, to bring it full circle, remember to simply be your multidimensional self.

To center the chi/chakras is to reside in the eye of the storm, so to speak. This way, the storm is the thundering pain and the eye is a blissful space void of suffering. One unlocks this solace of nirvana with the key of loving awareness.

In conclusion, every day is a chance to grow your consciousness — the energy of mind, body, soul. With time a person learns to transcend the human experience, becoming one with the extraordinary heart of nature.

Energized chakras are the source and aim of unconditional love.
