How to maintain well-being amidst multiple life stressors
How to maintain well-being amidst multiple life stressors?

Sorry to hear about your situation. As they say, when it rains it pours and you have been flooded.

Meditation (Dr Ainslie Meares method) is one of my favorite methods for reducing tension, anxiety, and fear. It is very effective. However, there are many different factors that can support his type of meditation as it were. I often mention his books, like Ainslie Meares on Meditation, as a cheap way to start learning it but, in your situation a book would be yet another cost to your budget. So, some thoughts on some other supports that might help.

There are some charities and similar organizations that provide free, reliable financial and legal advice. A good source might be able to help. For example, they might be able to suggest which costs are likely. Or, to suggest strategies to minimise the losses. Not perfect but better than things may seem at present.

In relation to the knee injury, in some countries\states if work contributes or aggravates a pre-existing injury then this counts from a legal compensation perspective. You should at least find out what the situation is in your jurisdiction. Good free legal advice should explain the facts, your options and the downsides as well as upsides of each of them.

A torn knee cartilage needs to be treated carefully and you should not attempt anything that might make the knee worse. The Egoscue method has various gentle exercises that does help with things like knee pain. for example, my own left knee and those of others helped make this clear. One practices these gentle exercises provided they do not increase pain. Increasing pain might mean further damage is occurring. You should also show the exercises to your doctor, before you try them out.

The third exercise involves laying down on the ground and you would need to figure out how to get down to the ground and back up again without causing pain in the knee. A chair,box AND a human partner might all be needed to do this safely. That being said, if any of these exercises caused pain in the injured area you will need to cease them immediately as your injury is being made worse.

Good luck with things.

anit aging tips
Good anti-aging cream for men/ women recommendations?

Men tend to produce more sebum so they have an oilier complexion which niacinamide would help with, and they also shave their faces far more often which damages the skin barrier. To keep from getting folliculitis, use a cleanser in the evening and just water in the morning, a gentle exfoliator with aha/bha such as lactic acid or salicylic acid two/three days after shaving is good. Some moisturizer with ceramides and hyaluronic acid to add moisture and protect the skin barrier. Top off with an SPF to prevent sun spots and aging.

I recommend: the ordinary niacinamide 2/3 times per week, the ordinary – lactic acid 48-72 hrs after shaving, Dr. Jart vital hydra solution+ no7 hydraluminous water concentrate twice daily, cerave SA cleanser/hydrating cleanser once daily, and cerave moisturizing lotion twice daily

Retinol and Vitamin c are powerful anti-aging products too with consistent usage. They will give the best results but you HAVE to use SPF with them as they make you photosensitive

A retinol or anti-oxidant (like vitamin c) could be a good place to start, but I recommend checking out r/skincareaddicts for more in depth information about skincare and anti-aging.

Here’s how to increase self-esteem and build confidence

A little backstory which you can skip: I was a complete loser, I’d lie about the person I wanted to be, I’d be so insecure of taking a single picture that after taking one I’d edit the fuck out of it making myself look even more weird matching those gross beauty standards, I couldn’t talk in social situations due to my social anxiety and was always awkward and didn’t get exposed to much social situations, it’d overwhelm me when ppl would display talents and have so much personality and zest in them and I’d always compare myself and fall flat. I came from a super small house and we had tons of financial issues, I couldn’t afford to have a decent diet, no clothes which would look good on me cuz I was so fucking fat, self harming, no good relations w family, barely any in real life friends, etc like, you can imagine how fucked up it was and it’s not even the end of the things I was facing but I mentioned these cuz they’d seem relatable. Now, I hit gym 6 days a week, lost weight from 85 kgs to 68 kgs, kickboxing, learning flute, quit porn and all social media except reddit, reading books, meditating, socialising and speaking my mind often, forcing myself to get out of my comfort zones, making helpful notes as I journal, learning shuffle dance, more about investing, doing well w studies, I’m so much liked and respected by my friends, developed a good bond w my family right from the scratch, I’m a lot more patient too, having amazing convos w ppl and I’m speaking my mind out, who’re genuinely so nice and kind at the gym, clg and at the kickboxing gym, getting some really nice attention from the girls around, my mental health is getting better and better and I’m so grateful for all the good and bad things which happened to me, basically I’m doing well w every aspect of life!

Here’s how to increase confidence and self-esteem:

Confidence is boosted when you expose yourself to difficult situations and come over them. You have to leave many things behind like how you’ll look in front of the camera or what others think of you, try not to care about it or even if you’re feeling afraid, do it anyway, cuz no matter what, you’ll live, you’ll survive this social situation. Ppl are only concerned about themselves, they won’t remember how stupid you looked. The more you expose yourself, the more confident and stronger you’ll come out to be. Cold approach that woman you found pretty, ask your tailor how did his day go, have deep and personal conversations w your friends like just show that you’re interested and ask more about them, pick up a new hobby which might scare you or try to break that gym PR by a small limit (pls be safe and no ego lifting.) GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE! And don’t ever lie to yourself, STOP LYING! TO OTHERS AND TO YOURSELF! Show your real self, I’ve started to upload more pictures of myself on stories too and it’s so freeing, to show your real self without editing and scraping it cuz you look so weird. TAKE THAT RISK!

  1. Journal your insecurities, write down how to get over them as well, you know the answer deep down. If you don’t, there’s YouTube to help you out but yes, you’ll have to put in the time to map out a schedule which you can execute. Set up goals, literally sit down and write what kind of person you want to be and how you could be that, then slowly start incorporating things and habits to become who you want to be. Start gratitude journalling, it’s 100% effective way to become happier.
  2. Go on a dopamine detox, slowly start incorporating healthier habits (Cuz tons of things would overwhelm you), start w personal and basic hygiene, beard cut/hair cut every 2-3 weeks, start wearing stainless steel accessories which are cheap, get clothes which fit or alter them accordingly, take care of your skin (Wake up early and at the same time everyday, wash your face w face wash, then apply moisturizer and then sunscreen before stepping out in the sun, basic skincare is that easy and it’ll do wonders to your skin), eat healthy food like 225g of spinach, 4 eggs and 2 carrots everyday along w high protein diet, these should be a non compromising thing cuz it improves your skin so much and makes you look better w tons of nutrients, looking better makes you feel better and appear more confident! Looks matter! Join a gym, lose that extra fat, get dream body, eat in a calorie deficit and w high protein! Gym is so so SO IMPORTANT!
    • Tell yourself you’re grateful for how much you’re putting in efforts for yourself, gratitude journal daily, find out the things which you love about yourself, NSDR daily for 15 mins, it’s like easy meditation for beginners and helps you feel rejuvenated, incorporate skills and be good at them, it takes time, but you’ll be good at them someday and progress makes one so happy, take baby steps to achieve the realistic goals which you’ve set up for yourself, your respect for yourself will start slowly increasing cuz you’re slowly becoming the person you want to be, upgrade your self image, cuz you’ll keep falling back into the patterns of the person you think you’re, tell yourself you’re a work in progress or you’re an athlete or an artist or anything which uplifts your self image, then things will start to become easier to stick to cuz they’ll become the new norm of what your self image is, you need to absolutely earn your own respect!
    • Talk to people, man, please talk to people, get to know about them and their interest of things or the random things they talk about, you get to learn so much. Go out there, find good ppl who have a growth mindset and are working on themselves, loneliness and all that lone wolf bs sucks, I was there, all my life but being w nice ppl is just so amazing, to increase your social skills I strongly recommend reading How to win friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie, then read The Rudest Book Ever by Shwetabh Gangwar, then I recommend Compound effect, these books are perfect cuz each focuses on different aspects, first for social skills, second for self image and self respect, last one for healthier habits/for success, if you have some issues to read them in a physical copy then audiobooks or PDFs are available too online. YOU GOT THIS!!! DON’T GIVE UP, DON’T LOSE HOPE! Tell yourself everyday it’s only about to get better and no matter what, you’ll be okay. Adopt an abundance mindset!
    Tips to build resilience
    1. Get Together: Talk with your friends and, yes, even with your parents.
      Understand that your parents may have more life experience than you do,
      even if it seems they never were your age. They may be afraid for you if you’re
      going through really tough times and it may be harder for them to talk about
      it than it is for you! Don’t be afraid to express your opinion, even if your
      parent or friend takes the opposite view. Ask questions and listen to the
      answers. Get connected to your community, whether it’s as part of a church
      group or a high school group.
    2. Cut Yourself Some Slack: When something bad happens in your life,
      the stresses of whatever you’re going through may heighten daily stresses.
      Your emotions might already be all over the map because of hormones and
      physical changes; the uncertainty during a tragedy or trauma can make these
      shifts seem more extreme. Be prepared for this and go a little easy on your-
      self, and on your friends.
    3. Create A Hassle-Free Zone: Make your room or apartment a “hassle-
      free zone”—not that you keep everyone out, but home should be a haven
      free from stress and anxieties. But understand that your parents and siblings
      may have their own stresses if something serious has just happened in your
      life and may want to spend a little more time than usual with you.
    4. Stick To The Program: Spending time in high school or on a college cam-
      pus means more choices; so let home be your constant. During a time of major
      stress, map out a routine and stick to it. You may be doing all kinds of new
      things, but don’t forget the routines that give you comfort, whether it’s the things
      you do before class, going out to lunch, or have a nightly phone call with a friend.
    5. Take Care Of Yourself: Be sure to take care of yourself—physically,
      mentally, and spiritually. And get sleep. If you don’t, you may be more grouchy
      and nervous at a time when you have to stay sharp. There’s a lot going on,
      and it’s going to be tough to face if you’re falling asleep on your feet.
    6. Take Control: Even in the midst of tragedy, you can move toward
      goals one small step at a time. During a really hard time, just getting out of
      bed and going to school may be all you can handle, but even accomplishing
      Resilience For Teens: Got Bounce? 21
      that can help. Bad times make us feel out of control—grab some of that
      control back by taking decisive action.
    7. Express Yourself: Tragedy can bring up a bunch of conflicting emo-
      tions, but sometimes, it’s just too hard to talk to someone about what you’re
      feeling. If talking isn’t working, do something else to capture your emotions
      like start a journal, or create art.
    8. Help Somebody: Nothing gets your mind off your own problems like
      solving someone else’s. Try volunteering in your community or at your school,
      cleaning up around the house or apartment, or helping a friend with his or
      her homework.
    9. Put Things In Perspective: The very thing that has you stressed out may
      be all anyone is talking about now. But eventually, things change and bad times
      end. If you’re worried about whether you’ve got what it takes to get through
      this, think back on a time when you faced up to your fears, whether it was
      asking someone on a date or applying for a job. Learn some relaxation tech-
      niques, whether it’s thinking of a particular song in times of stress, or just
      taking a deep breath to calm down. Think about the important things that
      have stayed the same, even while the outside world is changing. When you
      talk about bad times, make sure you talk about good times as well.
    10. Turn It Off: You want to stay informed—you may even have home-
      work that requires you to watch the news. But sometimes, the news, with its
      focus on the sensational, can add to the feeling that nothing is going right.
      Try to limit the amount of news you take in, whether it’s from television,
      newspapers or magazines, or the internet. Watching a news report once in-
      forms you; watching it over and over again just adds to the stress and con-
      tributes no new knowledge.
      You can learn resilience. But just because you learn resilience doesn’t mean
      you won’t feel stressed or anxious. You might have times when you aren’t
      happy—and that’s OK. Resilience is a journey, and each person will take his
      or her own time along the way. You may benefit from some of the resilience
      tips above, while some of your friends may benefit from others. The skills of
      resilience you learn during really bad times will be useful even after the bad
      times end, and they are good skills to have every day. Resilience can help you
      be one of the people who’ve “got bounce.”

    How to Create the Life That You Want in 1 Year
    How to Create the Life That You Want in 1 Year

    Doing a life audit is crucial for pinpointing where to make adjustments and jumpstarting your new journey.

    Start by figuring out where you stand in the 8 areas of life-health, finances, personal development, career, relationship, self-care, home life, and free time. 


    Your mindset is what sets the tone for everything in your life. Changing your mindset is what will change your life. What we think and believe is what we act upon.

     Change your perspective- from now on anytime negative happens, instead of feeling like a victim, ask yourself what you can control or change.


    Having a vision means we have a clear sense of purpose. It means we have much large picture of our business, or our life, then simply setting and reaching short term goals and tackling problems as they come along. 

    Visions are driven by passion and dreams, and they are reflected through real efforts to create real results.


    Once you have your vision, the fog lifts and your road map start to become clear again.

    But nobody is going to drive the car for you. You’ve got to put in the work to achieve your goals and change your life.

                  Consistently, daily practice is how you make that happen. If you watered the plants just a little each day, over time you garden always grew.


    If you want to change your life, YOU aren’t the only thing that has to change- your environment has to change too. For example, if you always hang out with negative-thinking friends, you’ll tend to believe that limitations they’re setting for you.

    However, if you hang out with other “do’ers” and people who want to see you succeed, there’s a much higher chance that you will.


    Nothing will change your life faster than building new skills. Whatever the case, imagine a year where you start out having a limited skill set.

    The delicate time during your day to build your skills.

    Learn them via books, videos, and podcasts, but don’t forget to physically practice your skills too.


               The whole point of this exercise is to CHANGE. That what you initially sought isn’t what you want anymore.

               Don’t get so focused on the process that you lose sight of what you want and most importantly…. have fun.

    20 Things I wish I’d know in my 20s
    The 20 things I wish I’d known in my 20s

    THERE IS ONE key factor that can either damage your relationship or deepen them: your attitude. If you’re hoping to grow and maintain positive relationships in your life, read on. Below you will find a twenty-step attitude adjustment guaranteed to help you do just that.

    1. Stop holding grudges.

     Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness.

    2. Stop complaining.

    Instead, use your time and energy to do something about it.

    3. Stop meaning what you don’t say

    People can’t read minds. Communicate regularly and effectively.

    4. Stop making it all about you.

    The world revolves around the sun, not you. Take a moment to acknowledge this truth on a regular basis

    5. Stop lying.

    In the long run, the truth always reveals itself. Either you own up to your actions or your actions will ultimately own you.

    6. Stop blaming.

    When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility-you give up your power over that part of your life, and you annoy everyone around you in  the process.

    7. Stop doubting.

    Don’t let your self-doubt interfere with other people’s dreams. Be supportive, or stay out of the way.

    8. Stop interrupting.

    Correcting someone when they’re blatantly wrong is one thing, but always interjecting your opinions out of turn gets old fast.

    9. Stop being selfish.

    You get what you put into a relationship. Nothing less, nothing more.

    10. Stop judging.

    Everyone is fighting their own unique war. You have no clue what they are going through, just like they have no clue what you’re going through.

    11. Stop gossiping.

    Gossiping about others is always a lose-lose. It hurts them, and then it hurts your reputation.

    12. Stop making promises you can’t keep.    
    Don’t over-promise. Instead, overdeliver- to others and yourself.

    13. Stop being defensive.  

    Just because someone sees something differently then you doesn’t mean either one of you is wrong. Keep an open 5mind. Otherwise, you’ll never discover anything new.

    14. Stop comparing people to others.

    No two people are like. Everyone has their own strengths. We are only ever competing against ourselves.

    15. Stop expecting people to be perfect.

    Perfect is the enemy of good and genuine goodness is hard to find in this world. Don’t overlook it.

    16. Stop trying to be everything to everyone.

    It’s impossible. But making one person smile can change their world. So narrow your focus.

    17. Stop cheating others just because you can get away with it.

    Just because you can get away with something doesn’t mean you should do it. Think bigger. Do what you know in your heart is right.

    18. Stop making mountains out of molehills.

    People make mistakes. There’s no reason to stress out yourself and everyone around you because of it. Ask yourself, “Will this matter in one year’s time?”  If not, let it go.

    19. Stop being dramatic.

    Stay out of other people’s drama and don’t needlessly create your own.

    20. Stop giving out advice, and just listen

    Less advice is often the best advice. People don’t need lots of advice, they need a listening ear and some positive reinforcement. What they want to know is already somewhere inside of them. They just need time to think, be, and breathe, and continue to explore the undirected journeys that will eventually help them find their direction.

    Here are some tips for detoxing your mind
    Here are some tips for detoxing your mind

    From my perspective, the mind is one of the most important organisms of the body. Therefore having a clear mindset and vision is fundamental for achieving anything in life. Following are 5 ways in which a person can detox the mind and make room for better things.

    Unfollow anyone who does not add positive value to your life

    Be mindful of the things you are following on social media. Make sure those accounts are adding value to your life. Many of the things we see on social media are products of technology. In other words, computers can create and edit the perfect online life, but real life is a different thing. Constantly track the accounts you follow and unfollow those who are not adding value to your path. Clear out your social media space as you clean out your room, closet, or house.

    Became selectively social

    Who you share your time with is a product of who you are. So be aware of the people around you. Those associations have a meaningful impact in your life, it has the power to change your perspective of life. Be mindful of who you give your energy to and from who you are receiving energy.


    Meditation is a powerful tool to organize your mind. Do not confuse meditation with shooting your mind off; meditation is the power to organize your thoughts. When you are meditating, focus on one thing at a time, this is how meditation works. You are supposed to pay attention to one aspect of your life at the time, and that will create a habit of concentration. Preventing you from focusing your time on unnecessary stuff, there you will have a clear and organized mind all the time.

    Ask yourself important questions.

    Everyone has questions about life and how it works. Ask yourself, what is working on my life and what is not working? What aspects of my life can I improve to become a better person? Do I currently have any relationship that is not adding value or joy to my life? What is one habit that prevents me from becoming a better person, and how can I break it? You can ask yourself multiple questions daily to find out how you are doing in life and where you want to go. Ask those questions all the time.

    Say “NO” whenever you are not ready.

    If you have a habit of being a people pleaser or you find yourself overbook all the time, it is time for you to learn how to say NO. Is essential to prioritize your time and spend it on things that will fulfill your path and purpose in life. You should help other people with their path if you can, but do not forget that you are your masterpiece; therefore, you need most of your time.

    Discover the power of the pause. Close your eyes and breath throughout your body. Slowly breathe through your nose and out throughout your mouth. Please your body needs, please your organisms by practicing simple steps. Detox your mind, and you will detox your life.

    How to DETOX your mind.

    Though We have miles to go in terms of learning what it means to take care of our bodies, we are even further behind on how
    to take care of our minds. Our brains construct our experiences and there are so many factors that alter and shift our perspectives that are completely in our control but totally out of our awareness. Here, a few things you can do to detox your mind, deprogram and wipe the slate clean now and again. Following are 18 ways in which a person can detox the mind and make room for better things.

    1.Trvel to assimilate culture. Alter your base-point concept of “normal.” What it will show you is how many behaviors/values/beliefs you have unconsciously adopted from your surroundings ( and ways you can change them).

    2. Create physical solutions for emotional problems. People default on the idea that one emotion will cancel out or fix another. If you are upset, seek a high to eliminate it. But negative emotions are just called to action that being ignored through a little mental gymnastics and a lot of justification, Detoxing your mind is letting go of emotion high in place of creating actual solutions.

    3. know that emotional toxicity is born of mental resistance. listed if trying to create a certain emotional experience.

    4. Identify your tethers. The Problems that are in from of you are actually behind you: they are cracks in your foundation that are holding you back. stop trying to dismantle symptoms; go back and identify the causes.

    5. Go for a long drive and let yourself get lost. Drive through neighborhoods you never would have known existed.
    See how other people live. See them come home from work and what their living rooms look like from the outside. It will comfort you in that you will realize how small you are in a more practical way than just staring at the ocean. You don’t know what you don’t know.

    6. Rearrange your furniture. Your brain constructs your experiences through props and signals that those props fire off. you are continual. subconsciously triggering negative or stagnant associations because of how your brain processes your surroundings- change how you think, change what you feel.

    7. Do a Mental purge. Just write down whatever weird thoughts continually, cross your mind of the little incoherent bits that are clogging your head. Just getting them out will give you relief.

    8. Restructure your digital life. It’s not realistic(or desirable to lot of people) to be forever disconnected, but it’s also not realistic to keep things that don’t serve you positively in you social feeds and expect it not to affect you.

    9. Notice your unconscious movements. Notice your feet walking and how you are not deciding yo ligy each one up and forward and yet because your mind said, “Okay, self lets get to this point today,” you began to go. Consider your morning intentions similarly.

    10. Cleanse your space emotionally. Consider the emotional attachment you have to the things you keep around you. Did you buy those clothes to someone you’re not?
    Do you have decor around your apartment that you got during a particularly crappy time in your life? Let those
    things go, but decide what to let go by thinking about what they make you feel.

    11. Place yourself. Make a chart with three columns and on the left write everything you feel you’ve
    accomplished in your life and the middle writes down what your daily life entails and then on the right put what those consistent habits will lead to what you hope to do in the future. It helps you focus on the big picture; getting lost
    in minutiae usually causes people anxiety.

    12. Shift your physical position every time you start falling back into toxic thought cycles. This basically creates a new experience for your body and refocuses you in the moment( and it’s simple enough to do at your desk at work)

    13. Stretch your brain. Pick up a book on something that interests you and learn more about it. Look at research on something you have a theory about.

    14. Reevaluate the extent of your connected disconnectedness. if the bulk of your relationships happen digitally (that are not long distance) and you have not had a conversation in person without being interrupted by a phone in a long enough time , evaluate how much you are prioritizing people in your life, and realize that screens>people is basically the best way to create an extremely anxious lifestyle for yourself.

    15. Identify what your addictions are keeping you distracted from. Most things people struggle with are addictions in some form: a thing you keep doing though you don’t really want to. Understand that addiction is a disconnection from yourself, and a disconnection from yourself is born of something present that you (think) you can’t face.

    16. Learn to let “good enough” not be the opposite of perfect. If there is one thing that will give you the most mental-emotional relief it is in letting food enough be good enough.

    17. Dismantle the parts of your life that are solely performative. The thing is that most of what clogs our minds is all the
    the unnecessary effort we put into constructing a life that seems a little more palatable, a little more noble, a little better than someone else’s (so therefore good enough) But it accomplishes the opposite of what we intend: We place ourselves further from a genuinely happy experience (which is in accepting that life is small and simple and more than enough)
    through grandiose ideas and attachments that end up making us into characters, not people.

    18. Write down what you hate about other people. This is what you need to change about yourself/ your life( but are resisting too much to actually do something about). Know that it’s often not a surface-level issue: You don’t hate your annoying neighbor because she always bothers other people for lunch, you hate her because she acts as though she’s
    desperate for love and you feel that way too but avoid it because you think it’s embarrassing. This is a cheat sheet to see what’s actually wrong in your life. It’s important because completely understanding the problem is the same thing as knowing the solution. If you don’t know what to do, you don’t know what’s wrong. If you don’t know what’s wrong, its because some part of you is resisting seeing it.

    Tips for maintaining good mental health

    A famous psychiatrist, Abraham Low, says that when people are depressed it’s therapeutic for them to go about their daily activities as close to normal as possible. This is liable to be slower than usual, but that’s all right.

    Low also recommended simple motivation methods for helping people overcome their sense of helplessness. These methods have been shown to work for generations.

    Therapist/researcher Stephen Ilardi says that activity – esp. physical activity, including light exercise – is therapeutic for depression.

    Emma Seppala of Yale suggests conserving our energy by going back and forth between challenging tasks and easy ones.

    I can tell you some self-help things but I’m not saying necessarily that these are all you need. Treating a serious case of depression with nothing but self-help is risky.

    Being active is therapeutic in more ways than one. It gives you confidence. It stimulates your nervous system and makes your brain work.

    Taking things in baby steps – very important. This is the key to motivation and motivation is the key to recovery.

    Just 20 min of brisk walking a day can help, and you can add to that gradually so long as you don’t make yourself sick of exercise with too much.

    If a task seems like it’s too big, think of it as a series of tasks that you can take on one at a time, and start with something really, really easy. Cleaning – start by cleaning for 3 or 4 min and take a 5 min break. Reading – start by previewing a chapter you’re going to read by looking at headings, sub-headings, etc.

    You can even use the baby steps principle for having fun. If you’re not getting any enjoyment out of things, here’s something that people here have said is helpful with that problem. Look all over and do a complete inventory. You should be able to find at least one or two things you like, such as your favorite music or movie. If there’s just one movie you like, watch it once or twice. Then, find movies that are like it in some way – with similar story or the same actor. Keep adding to your entertainment supply to give it variety.

    How to Train Your Brain Manifest Your Dream Life.
    How to Train Your Brain Manifest Your Dream Life.

    Did you know that you are currently creating your own life’s experiences and circumstances with your conscious and unconscious thoughts?

    As human beings, we ALL possess the ability to create the life we desire, using the power of our minds. And the truth is, you are constantly manifesting your external reality (whether you realize it or not).

    You see, every thought, intention and emotion that you have (both positive AND negative), releases a specific vibration of energy into the universe, which essentially shapes the details of your life.

    The power is already within you to create the life of your dreams; all you need to do is to understand how to harness this energy to bring you what you most desire.

    Now, I know there are A LOT of techniques for manifestation and sometimes it can be a little bit overwhelming to find the most effective one. That’s why I’d like to help you by sharing my personal practices for successful manifestation right now. Just follow these 4 essential steps to start attracting your greatest desires into your life, by as soon as this time next week!

    Step 1: Trust The Universe

    Trusting in the unknown is not always easy, but it is an essential step when preparing to receive abundance from the universe. To open yourself up to receive, you must first believe that the universe will naturally work FOR you instead of AGAINST you.

    To help you build trust in the process of life and in the universe, try this quick meditative practice each morning.

    Before you get out of bed, practice taking a few very deep breaths. Visualize yourself breathing trust INTO your mind and slowly exhaling fear OUT of your mind.

    Clearing yourself from negative energy and actively inviting positive energy into your mind at the start of each day will help you attract more positivity into your life. Then throughout the day, be open to receiving guidance from the universe and trust that every experience (even if it’s challenging) is happening to push you closer to your divine purpose.

    Step 2: Know What You Want

    It’s much easier to manifest with accuracy if you’re clear on what you truly want. Whether it’s to have better relationships, attain your perfect body, to land your dream job or to achieve financial freedom… you need to have a clear picture in your mind of what you want to create.

    Make a list of all the things that bring you happiness now, as well as the things that will bring you happiness in the future. Describe them with as much detail as possible. This list will help you visualize the people, opportunities, and experiences that you want with more intention and emotion, which will massively boost the power of your visualizations.

    Step 3: Say Thank You For What’s To Come

    Now that you’ve opened yourself up to receiving and you’re crystal clear on what you want, take some time to feel gratitude for what’s to come.

    Imagine yourself already living the life you desire and feel truly appreciative for all of the abundance that’s coming your way.

    Gratitude opens the door to even MORE success, happiness and love… so practice this simple habit as much as you possibly can!
