How the Power of Manifesting can Increase Happiness in Your Life [Episode #744]
This week’s topic is: How the Power of Manifesting can Increase Happiness in Your Life
We all have this incredible ability to hone our will and our energy and to co-create in our lives. And I started learning about the most effective process of manifestation from the great yoga guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, who brought these teachings to the west around really working with our own energy and connecting to the True Self.
And it is from this place that we can really create magic in our lives. And I can say with firsthand experience, it really is powerful when we learn some of these tools and practices, which I’ll be sharing with you today.

Namaste loves and welcome to our Thursday Q&A podcast where our topic this week is manifestation, How the Power of Manifesting can Increase Happiness in Your Life. And this is a very powerful topic. I wanted to bring it forward onto our show because we all have this incredible ability to hone our will and our energy and to co-create in our lives. And I started learning about this process, the most effective process of manifestation from the great yoga guru, Paramahansa Yoga Nanda, who brought these teachings to the west around really working with our own energy and connecting to the true self. And it is from this, this place that we can really create magic in our lives. And I can say firsthand with firsthand experience, it really is powerful when we learn some of these tools and practices.
So today’s a very special show as well, because if you hear the little birds and some of the forest noises, I actually brought my podcast equipment out here in the forest. So I’m sitting right on the earth here in Hawaii, in our, on a beautiful farm right in the middle of this gorgeous forest that we’re so grateful to have here on our land. And I wanted to ground myself to, to do this podcast with you today. So if you hear some cheerings and roosters and chickens running around and potentially a wild pig <laugh>, you’ll know why. So enjoy some, some soft nature, some soft nature music in the background as well.

Question around the topic of:How the Power of Manifesting can Increase Happiness in Your Life: With the year coming to end, I wanted to set goals for 2023 and learn how to help bring them into reality through manifesting. What is the best way to learn how to manifest what I want in my life?
Okay, so all of that being said, let’s get into our topic today, which is about the power of manifestation. And this question today comes from Jodi who lives in Texas, and Jody writes, so, hello my love. Thank you so much for your question today. And your question is, with the year coming to an end, I wanted to set goals for 2023 and learn how to help bring them into reality through manifesting what is the best way to learn how to manifest what I want in my life? So this is a great question, Jodi, and I wanted to talk about this ahead of the new year. So this show is literally airing right around winter solstice, which is the growing light. It’s the rising light, not just in the, in the, uh, sunlight and what is external, but also the growing light inside of us. So we start to feel that seed energy moving up through the darkness, so to speak, towards the light. We start to feel maybe a stirring of inspiration. We start to look ahead to the new year, to what seeds we wanna plant, what we wanna create. And we wanna do this in the most effective way. We want to use the tools and strategies to bring our goals forward. And so the first part about manifesting is clarity.
When we send mixed messages out, or when we are not clear within ourselves what it is that we want to create, you know, we, we wonder why things aren’t coming to fruition, why things aren’t moving forward. And it’s because there’s this muddled energy. We aren’t creating this very direct line of what it is that we want. So clarity is the first step here. And you can say to me, oh, Kimberly, I know what I want already. And it’s, you know, X, y, z. But the first part is really sitting with that. So I would encourage you to create some space before the new year, so maybe in the next week or so where you can sit in meditation and really anchor yourself, make some space, turn your phone off, and you can try one of the Practical Enlightenment Meditations that are on our website, um, where I guide you through.
They’re free, they’re about seven minutes, seven to 10 minutes. So just really go through the, the process of connecting down deep, which is going to allow your intuition to rise up. And then after a meditation, and then you could do this several times with this intention, then you can bring your, your journal out and ask yourself, what is it that is my intention for the year? What is it that I wanna create? What are the goals that I wanna pour energy into? What is it that I wanna expand? What is it that I wanna manifest?
So real deep clarity comes from intuition, not from the head, not from what you think you should be doing or coming from this more surface, egoic place, which I’ve done in the past as well. Just thinking, oh, well this is what’s expected of me, or, um, this is what people want, or this is who people want me to be. And you can, you can create from that space as well, but it’s always going to feel a bit more limited and not as deeply soul fulfilling. And so when we unite our will with the divine, with universal consciousness, whatever word you wanna use with a collective, with higher power, with spirit, with source, that is when we create in the most powerful way. So we need that clarity. And that clarity, again, is gonna come from a deep, well, a deep place inside of you. Real clarity, intuition rising up and spirit will guide us if we ask, where is the best place to put my energy?
How can I serve? So that’s the other part of clarity and creating our intentions, making sure that it’s win-win, making sure that it will in some way, shape or form, serve the whole, serve the collective. So when we do that, we bring in that energy of expansion that we were just speaking of a moment ago where it isn’t going to be just about the little limited part of us, the little self, the ego that has wounds and triggers and you know, still wanting to be validated, still wanting to be seen. And when we’re creating from that place and we’re acting from that place, we may create what we want. We may not, but it’s never gonna feel that sustainable deep joy and bliss, which is really the potentiality of manifestation. So why don’t we go for the gold, which is where we dig in deep, we connect first, we meditate, and again, this could be over succession of meditations. And then we allow our hearts to rise up. So we meditate first to settle the mind, and then we allow our hearts to speak to us in the language of intuitive messages or thoughts that come in and guidance.
So this is a essential part of the process. And so I, I encourage you not to rush this part, but to get really clear about what it is that you really wanna create. And this can, you can revisit this process. It doesn’t have to be allall in one goal, but you wanna make sure that you are anchoring in and, and your manifesting has this expansiveness. So when we are looking to create, we will have far more power behind our actions, words and thoughts if we are connected to this field beyond ourselves. So that’s how we start to really allow synchronicities and happy so-called coincidences and things to come forward. Because we are stepping into this expanded place of, you know, what Lynn McTaggart called in her book, the Field, her Quantum Physics book. But understanding that there’s a nonpersonal element to life and there’s a very much a nonpersonal element to creating and manifesting.
What I mean by this is it’s not just about us. And if we keep thinking on this separate, isolated little being, then we create very limited results. But when we love the whole, when again, when our goals are about win-win and service, now we’re expanding into a much more expansive fields of consciousness, of love, compassion and connection. And so once we do that, again, the little human mind doesn’t understand how everything works, but there is a divine intelligence that runs through everyone and all things. And so when we tap into that, we will find support along the way. We will find all these little things starting to line up in various ways. It’s not always gonna look exactly how we expect it to look or we ask for it to look, but we are stepping into this expanded field of consciousness. So the first thing is we get really clear and we make sure that our goals and what we are wanting to manifest in some way is a win-win situation for not just the little self, but those around us and the collective and the whole, and you know, could be family, friends beyond, beyond that, because we really are all connected.
So then the second part about manifestation, and it’s really important to get this, it’s not that we create some desires and we expect them to drop into our lap. We use our will, and this is something that Paramahansa Yonda spoke so much about because most of us don’t really use our will. We sort of sit back or we get distracted, or we just feel like we’re not enough or we’re powerless in some way. And so once we get really clear about what it is that we want to create, then we go for it. And what that means is we start to focus on it every day, and we use our will to help us concentrate on this goal. So this is part of the process of our manifestation kits, which I am so excited to have to offer. There’s still a few left if you wanna check them out on the site.
One of the things that we do in the kit, it includes a clear quartz bracelet, and I have mine on here right now, and clear quartz crystal, which we program, meaning we go through a ritual of cleansing the crystals and then placing them where we see them every day. So you wear the bracelet and you put the crystal on your altar or some sort of central place. And what this does is it helps to keep the energy alive of what it is that you wanna manifest. It’s easy in life to get disheartened, distracted, busy. So we wanna keep a physical reminder of what it is that we are wanting to create in our everyday lives to keep our will yoked United with this goal. So I’ll give you an example. When I was a goal of mine, you know, 10 years ago, my first book was to make the New York Times bestseller list as an author.
So I printed this little New York Times bestseller sign and I put it on the bathroom mirror. And every time I went to the bathroom, whether I thought about it or not, I was seeing it and it was sinking somewhere deep into my subconscious. And it kept, had helped keep k keep, um, helped to keep me focused. You can’t just have reminders around though, you have to do the work. So again, once we get really clear and we use our will, we have these, um, support systems, reminders, physical space holders, then we have to use our own determination and we keep our focus and we keep going and going with this sense of confidence that since we’ve already really dug deep and we really believe that this is a win-win situation, and this is for service and for love, then we will find a way. So manifestation is never just, oh, let me sit back and see what is brought into my lap. It really is so important that we,
We use our will now very important tool along the way is to start changing our limited beliefs and our thoughts. So there’s a very effective form of affirmation that I teach in the new book that is based on yoga NA’s teachings. And it’s also something I teach in the manifestation kit. And I’ll mention a little bit about it here, which is not just where we rattle off words and expect things to drop into our lap, but that we continuously say our affirmation until we create no separation between ourselves and the words, we just start to really align with the energy behind the words. And again, this is very helpful to do after you meditate, after you do a guided meditation. So you get into a state where you can really drop down deep, you can feel the energy around the words, and then you can start to visualize your goal coming forward out of the unmanifest, out of the pure field of potentiality, you start to feel the reality before it takes physical form.
So the way things are created comes first from that thought, that seed intention. And then we keep using our will and building energy around that intention, taking action steps, aligned action steps from this place of intuitive knowing and connection to the service and the expansion of the goal. We keep building energy and then we use affirmations to keep us aligned every day. So you can say affirmations once or twice a day. Again, if you’re meditating twice a day, I encourage you to do your meditations and then do your affirmations with that specific technique. I remember growing up, my mom started to get into affirmations and she started to, um, play with all these, you know, it’s different tools, but I remember she, she taught it to me and it, it never seemed to to work and it never seemed, it seemed very surface because it was just saying these words and, and um, it almost just felt like I was lying to myself.
And then I found yoga NEZs technique, which really clicked for me. And it was words saturated with the conviction of the soul. I’m paraphrasing what yo Gand said here. So this is where we, we create, uh, we create what we manifest in this expansive way. So I’ll, I’ll give you an example. We could say, I wanna lose 10 pounds this year. And that’s cool. That’s, that’s a, a goal. Millions and millions of people have, or think about this, we shift the goal into saying, I would like to manifest a healthier, lighter body so that I can be more energized in my work and serve others. Do you see the difference? Can you feel the difference? One’s very limited linear based on quantitative numbers, which again, there’s nothing wrong with that and that may be what you intend. But when we expand out and we have the why, why is it that I wanna lose the weight?
It’s not just from this egoic place, which again is limited. I, you know, based on the surface, but feeling into when I’m lighter, I’ll have more confidence, I’ll have more energy, and I’ll be able to create more in the world. I intend to lose these 10 pounds to feel lighter and more energized and to serve more. Now there’s a bigger reason. So now we can align our will. Now we can do affirmations. Now we can visualize that healthier, lighter body being able to move through the world and create. And then the last part I wanna leave you with is gratitude. So we want to, as we’re working on our goal and using our will and taking a line action, we want to bring in this energy of gratitude, almost feeling like we already have the goal. So at the end of your, uh, session of meditation affirmations, and there’s a big gratitude portion in the guided meditation that comes in the manifestation kit.
We wanna feel like we’ve already created it. It’s here now. So from that seed intention of thought, we start to bring forward reality into the physical world. And once we say, oh, I’m so grateful for this lighter body, I’m so grateful that I’ve manifested this really beautiful partnership or this deeply fulfilling new position, this new job, and we feel it here. Now we start to bring in this co-creation of, oh, this is here and energy is here now it’s a line now. And the linear egoic mind doesn’t understand everything about energy. I started to take a really deep dive into quantum physics and there is a lot there. We are not gonna go down that rabbit hole right now, but there is science around how energy and thoughts do create. And there is this field of consciousness. So gratitude is a very powerful part of this.
Gratitude also moves us away from lack into fullness and abundance. And this manifesting is when we’re coming from this place of I and my father are one, me and spirit are united. This fullness, this abundance in your heart, this is the powerful place in which we can all create. So it’s not that one of us can manifest and some people can’t. It is that all of us have this ability to tune in, tap in, visualize, affirm, use our will, take a line to action and be grateful. There’s so much I could say here, but I’m gonna leave that with you today. There’s a lot there to just sort of sink your teeth into and start to play with. And as I mentioned, and I’ll say it one more time, I’m so passionate about this topic. I have created a whole manifestation kit that includes all lots of tools and the jewelry and the journal and um, the crystal and the space holders, and, um, lots of just so many tools to really teach you the full process. So if you wanna go deeper, please check that out.
