How to Actually Manifest Your Dream, Part 5 of 7

Have your “creator” hat on while you’re brainstorming, writing, drawing, singing… After your allotted creating time, take off your creator hat, and put on your “appreciator” hat. As the appreciator, you will talk to the creator for a few minutes and let her (or him) know how thankful you are to her for being so open and uncensored.

The Possibility Tree

Perhaps you’re a violinist, and you know you want to get more work playing the violin. One possibility branch for getting more work would involve networking with other musicians at parties or at the symphony… Another possibility branch would involve building a website, posting examples of your work online, and attracting customers through internet searches. Yet another possibility branch could be learning new pieces of music and auditioning in different cities.

Dressing the Part

How we present ourselves is a manifestation of how we see ourselves, and a wish for how others might see us. I encourage you to experiment with your appearance. Step outside of your comfort zone. If you always wear suits or dresses, try putting on a crazy hat and wearing your clothes backwards to the park. Creativity is about exploring possibility, and it’s fueled by your willingness to be in the unknown.

Vision and Heart

A great way to hold your vision is to make a collage. Get a bunch of magazines, cut out the images that appeal to your deepest sense of yourself, paste them together, and then post your collage in a prominent place in your home.

Creative Heart Coaching

You have a unique gift to offer the world. What if you have an idea of what that gift is, but don’t know how to use it or trust it? In a unique process tailored to your goals, visions, and ideals, I can help you bridge the gap between possessing your gifts and talents and expressing them.
