The Effects of Travel on Awareness and Manifesting

I have manifested three separate “vacations” recently – one visiting a close friend in her place of residence, another of her coming to visit me in the city I’m currently staying and a trip to the coast. Not only was I reminded of the value of travel to one’s well being but I was also reminded of how much I enjoy change.

I had stayed put for months, working. It was worth it mainly because I yearned to know what it would be like. I am used to moving around but am proud to say I had made the best of those steady circumstances and now, I am back to enjoying the life I have always loved. (That in mind, I have been thinking about my second book – Law of Attraction for women, breaking down all of the issues faced in the world and relationships and building self love as a woman based on her true qualities instead of age, appearance and social status).

All these instances provided LoA lessons and reminders.

Travel is irreplaceable to one’s growth, social intelligence, an open-minded attitude and mental well being. 

You don’t have to go far – chances are a trip to a different part of the country you reside in will already offer you new insights. You will encounter different customs, perspectives and open your mind to ways of thinking different than your own. You will understand people even better as a result.

In addition, you will focus on what matters – your heart, self-worth and giving love to the world. Especially after encountering different customs and frames of mind!

Let’s also remember that travel offers many opportunities for excitement and fun! These simply put ideas can mean everything when it comes to changing your awareness, even if you don’t realize it. Happiness is all you need in order to feel better and with that, change yourself to better. You can easily become an even happier you.

When focusing on fun, entertainment and fascination travel can offer, you forget your negative thoughts.

Keeping busy and happy allows for manifestation while boredom calls for negative thoughts. Happiness changes your awareness faster than anything else because the energy of positive feelings coming from the heart is much stronger than energy of the mind alone and travel allows you to feel.

Whether you feel love for the place you’ve traveled to, your hometown or both, travel allows you to feel love. Look back on your life and think about how many times you’ve encountered something that moved you deeply after finding yourself in a place other than that of your residence.

And remember…

Traveling allows you to open your heart when encountering all kinds of novelty.

Positive energy translates across cultures, customs and individuals – it is a language everyone speaks. Positive energy makes you attractive, spreads love across the world and our collective awareness and draws people to you. If you feel good, you let go of and manifest your desires; if you feel poorly, you hold onto your desires hoping their manifestation would make you feel good which only translates into feeling even worse and not manifesting since you are missing what you want.

Open your heart! If you live with an open heart, you will be the person you have always dreamed of being.

Traveling allows you to open your heart without effort. Full of exciting stimuli, spending time somewhere new will contribute to your well being.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

There is only the “having” or the “missing” of your desire in/from your life.

When aware of having your desire, you feel secure, happy and are able to let go (to manifest).

When you feel your desire missing from your life, your brain keeps elaborating on that idea, producing more of the “not having.” Fear, negative scenarios and doubt are mere manifestations of the same awareness.

If you change any negative belief into a positive one, the idea of having your desire leading your awareness, your brain will soon produce even more thoughts of “having it” which will ultimately lead to manifestation.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY

You don’t have to put your desire out of your mind completely in order to manifest. However, if you do, you will manifest effortlessly. At the same time, this is not the only way to let go.

I have manifested in various momentary moods – during the sending of heart energy to my desire, after forgetting all about it, after letting it go only for a few minutes or hours, while expecting it to arrive any second or while simply feeling happy about it.

Don’t think about the process too much to avoid an attempt of controlling it.

Don’t think about “the right way of thinking” at all – just love your desire, live your life and enjoy various manifestation moods connected to it. As long as you believe, you will manifest.

Motivation, Determination and Knowing

When it comes to manifesting, your focus and confidence have to override all of the current circumstances, “reality” as you perceive it and all your negative thoughts. In other words, your determination and belief that you can create what you want, that your desire is yours already, have to be stronger than anything else. You just have to believe you can create your dreams simply because you have decided so and it is going to happen.

This state is naturally achieved once you deeply know you want to live or just experience your desire.

Weeks ago, I wrote about my resolve in creating (https://thelawofattractionandmylife.wordpress.com/2015/09/18/the-garage-door-metaphor/). That’s how I do it!

I manifested a move from Europe to USA at age fourteen. My parents’ friends thought my conviction that I was going to live in the States was “cute.” My school friends held less disbelief but didn’t hold too much belief in the idea either. However, nothing was going to rattle my belief – when it comes to LoA, it is you and only you, the only person whose feelings count when creating your reality. Other people can influence your feelings if you let them but they can never decide for you. I knew it was all happening without needing anyone’s approval.

Then, my father was sent to the States for work. My whole family moved, to the shock of many. However, it wasn’t shocking to me at all – this was exactly what I’d manifested. I had only focused on being there, living there, loving it.

When your focus on your decision to live your desire fails to be rattled by anything or anyone, you will have walked a very short path to your dream-come-true reality.

Over the past three weeks, I have received several gifts of organic and luxurious cosmetics. I received a Givenchy gift box of perfume, shower gel and body lotion. I was gifted a beauty treatment at Lush for a group of up to six people. Prior to receiving these gifts, I remembered how easily I attract beauty treatments and my favorite cosmetics. Gifts are also one of the ways in which I attract money, as many times I end up being gifted what I would ordinarily buy for myself.

You would imagine I feel pretty light and confident about manifesting gifts such as these, right? Well, I have definitely felt just as light about manifesting “bigger” things – moving countries, travel, university acceptance, money, renting apartments and most of my former relationships.

If you feel your desired manifestation to be “a big deal,” you will face a draining manifestation period of convincing yourself it is possible to have. However, if you accept that everything in life is created based on the same principle, you can start to believe your ideal relationship can be created just as easily. Relationships and love are beautiful experiences so why pass up the opportunity to gift yourself and someone you love with one?

Whenever I felt “heavy” about anything I wanted to manifest, it would move slowly. In truth, these occasions were rare and always involved the things and people I didn’t truly want (anymore). I didn’t want them because I didn’t believe that these jobs, friends or men could truly make me happy. I felt happy manifesting short-term linkage to them but not permanent. I only truly wanted to experience them.

I find relationships to be one of the most emotionally consuming, fear-inducing yet wonderful desires one could manifest. However, what if you could feel as light about manifesting relationships as you would manifesting beauty products I mentioned?

Your history with relationships or the specific person you are manifesting might decide your initial excitement or fears related to your current relationship desire. However, if your thoughts related to your desire are dissatisfying, you can work through them!

Is your potential desired relationship manifestation exhausting you? If so, you either don’t believe it could manifest or don’t like your specific person enough to feel good about them – this part depends on your personality and belief system, as well as your knowledge of yourself.

If you feel that the only potential partners who ever fall for you are those you don’t like that much, you don’t believe you could manifest the specific person and relationship you truly desire. If you keep thinking about the negative aspects of your past with them instead of the positive, you hold many negative feelings not just for the relationship but the person in question as well. Even when you briefly think about possibly being happy with this specific person, you don’t believe it could last. You don’t believe that this relationship is right but you want it to be.

It’s OK to feel whatever it is you’re feeling. It’s OK to be tired and frustrated. Once we reach the answers we need, we can calm down.

Now, you might be used to believing only after seeing external proof in life.

I believe this particular issue plagues many relationship manifestations – when not entirely believing yourself to be capable of manifesting your desired relationship, your energy can be practically lethargic, tiring and slow. You are drained and exhausted from trying to feel good. You keep changing your “manifestation technique,” hoping it’ll bring you what you want. However, it isn’t hope but profound knowing that manifests your desire.

An increase in motivation is all you need to achieve – it’ll make you feel great, raise your vibration and allow you to believe that your relationship is yours! An unconditional focus on your goal combined with motivation will make you see that your desire is in the bag!

Now, I am not saying you will be exhilarated every time you think about your desire but suddenly, you will be focused on it and be happy that it’s yours. Your determination, once truly achieved, will have let you know that your desire is yours already. Every time you think of your desire, you’ll be happy it’s yours!

Motivation equals positive energy. Motivation comes effortlessly once you clearly decide what you want your desire to be. What is it that makes you happy? In what way would living your desire make you happy?

When creating a love relationship, I only need my own belief that it’s mine. Even if I shared my belief with anyone else and they disagreed, I wouldn’t care because I know what I can create.

Motivation increases positive emotion. Allowing you to move towards your goal without the need to do any work, without impatience, letting you focus on life in the meantime while valuing your happiness and nothing less, motivation allows you to orchestrate your reality without the need for anyone’s approval.

The Garage Door Metaphor

While closing my garage door today, I once again thought of an idea I’d recently had. Since LoA works on the exact same principle regardless of one’s desire, I advise (you) conscious manifestation practitioners to look back on anything you have successfully manifested and apply the same principle to your current desires.

I manifest any desire the same way I manifest successfully closing my garage door.

When pressing the button, I know that my garage door is closed. I know that since I asked and decided so, it is so. When suddenly in fear of accidentally pressing my remote (located on my key chain) and opening the door, I remember that I already decided the door was closed and let go instantly.

Even when experiencing fear, I switch to a positive, secure mindset and I let it go.

Every time I experience any (false, as they always are) fear connected to my desire, I remember that the garage door is closed.

When the thought of my car resting safely in my garage enters my mind, I feel gratitude and express it.

Now, how can this specific creation method be applied to other desires you may have?

When thoughts of living your dreams enter your mind, entertain them. Love them! Love them even if just for a few seconds. When spontaneously envisioning how something might happen makes you happy and light, go with it.

Unfortunately, most tend to see the worst, the feared or the undesirable when it comes to manifesting love.

Love is an illusion. Love hurts. Love is scary. Love will break your heart. These are the phrases one tends to hear in life, making it difficult to entertain a belief that love can indeed be everything it’s cracked up to be. In truth, is there a real reason it couldn’t?

There isn’t. Every assumption or fear you may have related to the concept of love can be replaced with a more positive one. After all, if love is so horrible, why keep hoping for it despite all your negative thoughts? And, we all do.

Negative thoughts connected to the idea of one’s desired relationship might be a normal idea to many… But you deserve better than that. If your relationship history was undesirable, remember that now, you are living a different life. Decide that now, you are living the life of your dreams while the past stays in the past. Now, you have created a new relationship and in truth, we create as soon as we ask for something. After all, if you want it enough, you will decide it’s yours because you deserve it (and nothing less).

When it comes to relationships, your fear is either your comfort zone or, you are determined to beat it. How do you beat it? By focusing on positive thoughts. Your goal is not to fight negative thoughts but to develop an effortless ability to focus on the positive ones.

I recommend all of this as a new manifesting tactic. Think of something you successfully manifested in the past regardless of your fear that something could go wrong. In a very short time, you will know that your desire is yours.

Once you’ve truly had it with your negative thoughts, you will make the most powerfully determined decision that you are creating your new life now. Then, you will live it.

My Crucial Manifesting Factor

Yesterday, I discussed one’s resolve being a crucial factor in the process of attracting one’s dream life. This is certainly true in my case.

One of my closest friends once said to me, “If you don’t have a burning desire to do something or be with someone, it seems to encounter problems. You’re bored after only being amused with it short-term. You sometimes even want a reason to leave.”

I completely agree.

It all rests in my resolve to live my desire. This resolve is always boosted by love and gratitude for the said desire.

On rare occasions, my resolve had come as a result of being sick of questioning and experiencing some negative thoughts. I would observe and entertain these negative thoughts, sometimes even using them to reevaluate my desire. I would say,

“If my desire is strong enough, these questions can’t hurt it but can even help.”

You receive what you ask for and this type of energy, one that offers no resistance even to the thoughts of resistance, can only strengthen one’s resolve.

Do you desire your desire strongly, with all your heart?

Has your resolve been damaged by your own negative thoughts, a lack of faith in your manifesting abilities and the refusal to believe? If this happened to you, don’t worry, as everything can be fixed once your point of view has changed. As soon as you redirect your attention and your feelings to positive, to the ideas you love instead of those you fear, so will your reality.

Listen to what your heart says about your desires – it’ll strengthen your resolve. Any feeling of happiness around your desire comes from your heart. The human heart produces strong energy. Focus on the happiness (the idea of) your desire gives you, love it and even more will be produced. Look back on your life – you gained everything you have today because you felt positively about it. Everything that left your life did so once you started feeling negatively about it in one way or another.

Does your resolve respond to your self-respect? If you feel that being with another would mean disrespecting yourself, your resolve may falter. The person you had your eye on might turn out to be the opposite of what you thought before you manifested them; they might be weak or unremarkable, all showing through your time together. Their best might never be enough for you. If you feel that settling for a specific job would mean you’ve said yes to the second best, this may produce a manifesting block; however, if you feel this way, you are unsure of the potential for your happiness.

My resolve must encompass:

  • True love for my desire. Is my desire truly the place I want to wake up every morning?
  • Patience around the concepts of time and possible negative thoughts. When patience is present, things happen rapidly. The idea of having one’s desire in their life is instantly (or, soon) believable. Ultimately, we all know – don’t we feel silly when we attach impatience or some negative meaning to our desires due to a lack of signs or a borderline paranoid idea? We know that nothing has anything to do with our desires except for the desires in question.
  • Gratitude for having my desire in my life already. If one isn’t automatically experiencing the feelings of gratitude, they aren’t directing enough positive feeling towards living their desire. However, any frustration, negativity or fear around one’s desire can be removed.
  • The ability to picture living my desire. If this is the life I want, at least for a little while, I will manifest it.
  • True excitement for my desire. If I enjoy almost childlike excitement while thinking of my desire, I will experience rapid manifestation. However, this is not a prerequisite – any kind of happiness and positive feelings are. Looking back, I believe I haven’t experienced this type of excitement over every single desire but for some, it was definitely present. I enjoy it greatly and love to feel this way.

When the Mind Wanders…

You may think you have to improve before becoming worthy of your desires. The truth is you can attract anything you want to live in your present circumstances. However, it is certainly less than amusing to experience one’s mind wandering, coming up with ridiculous scenarios of the undesirable.

Once, I was accused of seeing someone else by a boyfriend I was close to breaking up with. Our relationship already overwrought, he’d come to this conclusion after not being able to account for my absence of several hours after which I’d returned home with messy hair, sweaty clothes and jumped in the shower immediately.

I wasn’t seeing anyone. I’d been on the move the entire day and spent three hours at a friend’s overheated apartment. Afterwards, I ran to see another friend, nearly missing the bus. My run from her apartment to the bus station in padded, heeled boots, simultaneously putting on a wool cap, entering the bus and departing only to enter another heated apartment effectively frizzed my naturally curly hair and caused me to sweat on the synthetic clothes underneath my winter coat.

Makes you think about the crazy scenarios one’s tense mind can be allowed to write.

When you permit these negative thoughts surrounding your desire to take over your awareness, you are doing so because you are aware of the lack of your manifestation – nothing else. Your fears connect completely separate aspects of your life into a single story, causing you to see conspiracy everywhere.

When thinking about everything that could go wrong with your desire, you are still focusing on the absence of it – after all, doesn’t your desire entail its presence in your life instead of everything going wrong with it?

Feel free to release those thoughts.


Are you afraid of the excitement your desire evokes at its thought? Embrace it!

You can think about your desire as much as it makes you happy but only as long as you think of it as something you’re thrilled to have in your life. If you think about all the things you want to do before receiving it, what you should do in order to finally have it or what you need to improve, you’re perpetuating the absence of it from your life. This is where mind energy and heart energy may collide or work together, depending on your awareness.

What happens when you feel too weak to shake off your negative thoughts?

There is a way to use this energy to your advantage.

I have recently read that fear and excitement have a very similar effect on the human body’s nervous system. This notion made perfect sense to me, as some of my strongly emotion-filled manifestation moments came out of fear. An excellent motivator when used instead of resisted, fear has allowed me to produce positive emotion towards any desire with a simple change of thought.

Imagine getting emotional over a negative thought, simply changing it into a thought of having your desire and allowing the accompanying emotional charge to suddenly feel electric instead of somber. Try it and let me know how it goes.

One of my greatest convictions in life is that every situation can be used to my advantage, yet another advantage leading to the achieving of my goal. Fear turned into excitement corresponds with that idea perfectly.

These Law of Attraction studies we do together exist for you to understand energy – not to put pressure on you to achieve the “perfect” way of thinking.

Getting Started with Heart Energy

It’s been a while since I discussed the difference between the mind and heart energies in depth. My learning process of the two continued nonetheless, leading me to several ideas on showing others how to connect with their own heart’s energy field.

I once read that the energies of heart and mind were two completely different energies – this idea rang true to me immediately.

To get started with heart energy, listen to your body’s reactions. Listen to which ideas you love.

When manifesting something new in life, one’s mind will answer with resistance. When this happens, ask yourself, “What is my heart saying?” Your heart will automatically remind you of the ideas you love and the reality you would simply love to live, the one you are creating. Listen to the ideas coming from the area around your heart and its energy field.

Recently, I wrote that resisting resistance is the essence of resistance itself. Listening to the limited ideas of the mind which only attempts to protect us from harm is blocking our heart’s desires from coming into our realities.

I created all my former relationships with heart energy, and then allowed them to dissolve with the mind. When I’d realize that my heart was failing to connect with a specific person after a certain period of having a relationship, I always allowed this acknowledgment to lead me towards a breakup in the fastest way possible. Usually, this way was contained in an utter mental switch on my end, causing the need to run like the wind and reconnect with my freedom as soon as possible, effectively taking the initiative to end the relationship myself.

I would produce heart energy for as long as it was effortless. Then, I would allow my mind energy to end my relationship.

Today, my heart and mind are aligned. My heart leads while my mind follows. Today, I work through any resistance with heart energy, even when it isn’t effortless. If I truly desire something and love it, I feel that it is worth experiencing. I send heart energy to it until it becomes effortless. In my experience, this process is always short.

Heart energy truly opens us up to higher frequencies and enables us to let go of our desires naturally in order for them to manifest. Filling up your desires with heart energy literally means fully experiencing the sensation of being exactly where you wish to be, love flowing through you. It means going from thinking about your desires to living them and being endlessly happy about it. This feeling can be produced on command by purposefully sending heart energy to your desires.

If you’re willing to try it, I encourage an exercise. When thinking about your desire and experiencing resistance towards it from your mind, suggesting why you should stay away from the said desire, ask yourself, “What does my heart say?”

Then, listen. Your heart will reflect what you want. You will start to feel love for your desire. After that, say, “Thank you that I get to live my dream.” With that, you will feel the Universe giving you your desire instead of trying to manifest it yourself. You will stop wondering what you are doing wrong and when your desire will manifest. You will feel like you have it already.
