Manifestation: The Principle of Empowerment
I don’t tell people what crystals to use. Rather, I empower others to know what crystals they need for themselves. Part of my mission in doing so is to create powerful perspective shifts through guiding people to strengthen their own intuition. Crystals are the energetic vessel which I use to teach others how to manifest their heart’s desires.
Over the span of my lifetime, one key example comes to mind of how people struggle to move outside the boundaries of their comfort zones. When my middle school students used to ask “What color should I use?” my reply was always, “The color of YOUR choice.” They’d ask again and again, but my response would be the same. “Use any color you’d like,” I’d say to them, “There’s no right or wrong, just use what you think is best.” Even though they would get a bit frustrated, they still moved forward with the color of their choice.
The goal was not to frustrate them, but rather teach them to stand in their own power by making their own choices. Something as simple as choosing a color yourself versus letting someone else choose for you demonstrates the difference between thinking for one’s self rather than letting another think for them. To introduce others to this concept, I employ this practice using crystals.
What is right for me in any given moment may not be right for you. When it comes down to it, I know what is best for me, and you know what is best for you. Whether you realize it or not, you really do know what is best for you. Empowering you to use your own intuition is the reason I do what I do!
How I Learned to Manifest
Only ten months into my new business and I was freaking out; I hit a solid brick wall. I had no clue how to grow my business, how to reach my clients, how to make more money, how to continue surviving outside my previous profession as a school teacher of 16 years. It was all I had known, but I did not want it anymore. Chaotic anxiety engulfed me as I sat in the do-or-die, life-or-death energy of how I could possibly grow my business as a new entrepreneur. The uncertainty was killing me.
I needed financial stability, courage, and guidance! Heck, I needed faith, trust, and pixie dust too! I hit the road running. Summer was close and I knew restaurants were gearing up for the summer crowds. I was certain I could find a restaurant job as a waitress and run my business all at the same time. Even though I applied to at least 15 restaurants over three days, NOBODY would hire me! I am honestly still shocked to this day. For Christ’s sake, I handled 7th graders successfully for 16 years! That right there should say I can do anything! But still no “second” job offers.
At this point, I feared going back to the classroom was the only logical option left to securing financial stability. But I knew I could never return to the one thing that just about killed me. Quite frankly, I was in need of a miracle. Fortunately for me, I believe in miracles. And that’s just what I got!
I was at home panicking, literally pacing my house, stressed out and contemplating what I was going to do next: return to the classroom or grow my business? When all of a sudden, something powerful came over me, channeling the divine gift which brought me to the thriving, successful business I have today. Now, I make more than $100,000 a year thanks to this process.
Remember I said I needed money? Well, that’s exactly what I got, and a lot of it in LESS than 24 hours! I literally manifested a $5,000 check in the mail and an order off my website for $55 worth of rocks. I didn’t even know my website was public yet! Who made my website public? Who led a person to my website to place an order? How did someone know to send me a $5,000 check “next day air” in the mail? Miracle? I think so!
The divine process gifted to me is exactly what I will empower you to use at the retreats! All of it, from beginning to end, so you can powerfully manifest too! It absolutely involves intention setting, crystals, mindfulness, and connecting to your higher power. I am but one of many living testaments to the power of this divine process. I wholeheartedly believe Spirit gave me this process to empower others and give back all that I have been given.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
“What if you let your soul run your life instead of your mind? What if you stopped being so careful? What if you weren’t militant with yourself, but instead soft as butter? A small voice inside is trying to get your attention. It’s trying to burst through conditioning. You are royalty and prophecy. You have talents like no other. You will never know yourself while you refuse yourself.” ~Tama J. Kieves
