Let me give you a little bit of insight into what I’ve learned lately. *Hint - you can have what you truly desire.
First thing’s first. It’s much simpler than you may think. All you need is trust and an unwavering knowing. A very dear friend of mine and I discussed this topic at length at the beginning of the year and since then, the very same messages have been placed right in my face (unsurprisingly) in the books I have read. Many I have intentionally sourced in order to read more about the topic, but some - like one of the books* I recently edited before we published it - have held the very same message without my knowing beforehand that the universe was clearly trying to get my attention with this knowledge.
Towards the beginning of the year, I wasn’t in a very good place. I was in an unhappy relationship, struggling financially and overall, I was just in a state of complete confusion about my life. It wasn’t a very nice place to be of course, and so among other things, this beautiful friend of mine told me about a technique that she had been researching that was taught by the late Neville Goddard.*
Now, I’m not saying that just like magic, my life changed, but unlike in my past where I’ve struggled to make decisions or see the future clearly, the events and life changes in recent months have occurred far more smoothly than even I expected. Of course, I’ve been doing a lot of inner work over the years and I am always learning and growing, but the reason I’m sharing this with you now is because as I’ve mentioned in the past when it comes to all things in life, the key is trust and knowing. You may recall me writing about this before - eg. having the trust and knowing that I’m always protected when doing readings is enough for me. I don’t need rituals or anything like that for protection anymore.
So, getting back to my point. In around February of this year, I did an exercise that was all part of this teaching. One of the techniques I used was to write down all of the things that I wanted in my life - as if I were living them at that very moment. Not just listing my desires, but journaling the whole experience - what people had said, how I felt, what my surroundings were, smells, temperature, the whole lot. Again though, it wasn’t going to be enough to just wish for these things. I had to have complete trust that while journaling, I was stepping into the future and living it - really living it. So that’s what I did. I grabbed myself a beautiful handmade notebook and started the process, and I was thorough. I cried, I smiled, and I felt what it would be like living in these moments where my desires had already been made a reality. It took some time, and I only focused on the things that were a must-have for me at that time.
Six months later, here I am, and all but one of them have already manifested. The last one is already starting to happen - signs of it are very clear indeed. I sat back last night and read over what I had written earlier in the year. I smiled as I felt so much gratitude - not only for the universe and how all of this works so seamlessly, but for myself as well, for having such faith that in fully trusting and knowing that what I desire can be achieved.
In such a short period of time (it really is - six months), the future reality I placed myself in has already arrived.
I confidently ended my marriage, and the transition went peacefully and smoothly. My ex husband has since met someone new, and is truly happy (yes, ensuring my ex husband found love was part of the reality I envisioned). I have also met someone new (this was actually not something I had asked for, but a bonus for me)!
All three of my children are settled, happy and healthy, and have adjusted remarkably well to all the changes - including the massive transformation that has occurred with my teenager after having been depressed, lacking in confidence and not himself for so many years. He is now back to the beautiful, confident boy I know.
My business has expanded in a huge way, and Mum and I are smashing goals left, right and centre! Opportunities are practically falling in our lap, and support and advice are flowing to us from unexpected sources that we couldn’t be more grateful for.
Finally, just last weekend, I booked and paid for my absolute dream trip - a three week holiday to Scotland (and England/Ireland). My Mum, my three children and I fly out in April next year and will be visiting with family, seeing where my beautiful Pa grew up, and celebrating both my son's 16th birthday and my 40th!
The reason I'm sharing with you what my future reality looked like, is because every single one of the events that have occurred above, manifested just as I had planned them to - so much so, that I had even written down the conversation I had with my ex about him having moved on with someone new. Not only did I create my own reality, but the more I trusted and knew that this was going to be my future, the more the universe aligned with my reality and threw in bonuses that at a soul level, I knew I also wanted (without me even asking for them).
While there is still so much for me to learn about all of this, if I can make all of this happen in only six months time, just imagine what is possible with added knowledge, experience and time. Whether you believe this or not (I appreciate that some of you may be skeptical), I want you to know that you can create your own reality. You just have to make it real.

Robert recently overcame terminal brain cancer and his book is about his journey through this and what he discovered when science and spirit meet. It's a brilliant read and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
