There is no perfect time to take the leap into manifestation and focus on your mindset, personal desires, and your life. It’s more of a “whenever is best for you” situation - honestly, I believe that all moms should take the leap considering how it changed my own life, but I understand that not everyone is ready for that. Still, there are a few signs you can look out for to determine if manifestation is right for you.
#1. You’re open to your desires.
This is HUGE. When you realize that you have wants, needs, desires that you can reach out and grab, it gives you ambition. It’s easy to decide that instead of ambition, you feel mom-guilt about wanting something that’s not 100% related to your kids, but that’s a feeling we’re going to work through. You’re an amazing mama and you DESERVE to have goals, wants, and desires and to achieve them.
#2. You’re ready to make a change.
Beyond just wanting or identifying your desires, you need to want to change how your mindset and life are functioning right now. You have to be open to making changes that are proven to attract your dream life and defeat those negative feelings. Even if you’re not there already, you need the desire to get there - to stay in your mom power, even when everything feels like it’s going to shit.
#3. You want to make the most of Motherhood.
You feel like you could be doing more, not more as in taking the kids to another football game or going on a family vacation (although I highly suggest taking one of those too), but more as in feeling more PRESENT in your day. You want to be engaged in your life as a mom instead of trudging along. As moms, we love our kids, we love spending time with them, but sometimes it’s overwhelming or we lose our sense of self. In the Moms Manifestation Academy, we cover how you need to spend time taking care of yourself to manifest your desires, and that includes making the most of motherhood.
#4. You’re tired of how tired you are.
This one kinda relates to #3, being present, staying in your mom power, identifying your exhaustion, and recognizing the path to feeling energized again. For me, manifestation changed my life. It was how I started recognizing that mentally, I was exhausted and allowed me to take the steps I need to re-energize myself. Now I love my morning rituals, expressing gratitude for my life, and just recognizing my desires and setting the path to achieving them.
I have lived through manifestation - it’s been my guide, my calling to embrace and teach to other badass moms. It’s part of the energy that surrounds me, the power I hold over my life, and the way I embrace my dreams & goals, stay thankful for my experiences, and grow through the negative events in my life. And I absolutely love my life - which is why I want to teach you the do’s and don’ts of manifesting as a mom…
What is Manifestation?
Reading through the resources on my blog, you’re going to hear a bunch of terms that might sound a little out of the ordinary such as:
And, of course, manifestation. Manifestation is using thoughts, words, and imagery to draw specific positive experiences into your life. To successfully manifest, you’re going to use all those fancy terms - and what they entail - to manifest your goals, dreams, and the life you desire.
Manifestation for Moms
Manifestation for moms can look like aiming for your dream job to simply feeling empowered throughout the day without collapsing under the pressure of, you know, being a mom. It can also look a little like writing affirmation in the bathroom, expressing gratitude over your morning cup of coffee, taking an extra five minutes in the car after running errands to set your intentions for the day, week, or even the moment. I’ve been there.
The way you choose to manifest is not going to look like mine, the mom on Instagram, or even your next-door neighbor. Your days are different, your lives are different, and I would bet your goals/dream lives are different too. Manifestation includes practices that help you, guide you, and allow you to embody your aspirations - but it doesn’t have a set schedule.
One of my main goals as a motherhood mindset and manifestation coach is to show moms that you can create a way to manifest, express gratitude, and activate your desires now, not two months from now. While our end goal will include helping you make time for your manifestation practices, we work towards integrating manifestations into your life in a way that suits YOU.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Manifestation
Manifesting can be a fun, powerful experience for any mom and can lead to opening doors, changing your life, and allowing you to become a magnet for your aspirations. But, before you dive headfirst into manifesting, here are some do’s and don’ts of manifestation for moms:
Do’s of Manifestation
Be very clear about what you want to manifest.
Trust in the universe, it has a plan for you.
Check-in with yourself and your goals.
Integrate manifesting into your daily life.
Don’ts of Manifestation
Be afraid to ask for help, it’s okay to feel lost.
Give up on your manifestations or yourself.
Expect something to fall into your lap out of the blue.
Approach your manifestations halfheartedly.
How to Get Started Manifesting Your Life (for Moms)
It’s not as crazy as it sounds (nor as impossible as it sometimes looks), getting started on your manifestation journey is as easy as 1,2,3! As one of my goals - and something I felt really energized about this year - I have built out a comprehensive manifestation program for badass moms.
We don’t have time for a two-hour long morning routine ritual, an hour of meditation, and so many other programs that don’t take into account the deep-rooted beliefs and patterns that we moms deal with. In Mom’s Manifestation Academy I teach you how to embrace manifestation in your life and create a routine that works for you. We shouldn’t get excluded from living our dreams just because we don’t experience the same blocks as everyone else. Activate your desires this spring by joining the MMA waitlist today.
I'm going to be open and honest, gratitude is not something that has always - nor always - come easy to me. I know I have a fucking incredible life and I am SO grateful for it, but it’s hard for me to set aside the time each day to actually be grateful for what I have.
There are so many things I have to be grateful for in my life. I’m healthy, my kids are healthy, we’re happy, I’m doing what I love every day, we’re wealthy, we’re in abundance. It’s days that my three-year-old throws a tantrum or the car get a six-inch bolt in the tire that I find myself struggling to live in the frequency of gratitude and just appreciate my life.
The further I find myself in this journey, the more recognize tools that help live in the frequency of gratitude - and that can help you too:
Be Thankful Before it Happens
You’ll hear this a lot in the world of manifestation: Be thankful before it happens. Part of manifestation and mindset for moms is manifesting the life that you want through gratitude. You’re thankful for the opportunities coming your way, the opportunities you work for, and the opportunities you’re experiencing.
Keep a gratitude journal - or add it into your current journal! Journaling is less about proving you’re expressing gratitude, but more about reminding yourself to express gratitude. Journaling turns into a habit which in turn helps you create a habit of expressing gratitude. Here are a few prompts your can use:
What is something you love about yourself?
What is something you love about your home?
What is something you love about your life?
What are three things you can be grateful for today?
What are three things you are grateful for from yesterday?
So, what's it for you Mama, what are your goals for everyday life for you? Do you want to live your best life every dang day? I hope so. Because you're the kind of Mom I want to lock arms with and become Mamahood besties with!
So, what do you say, are you up for it?
